Worst Case Scenario


In this era you should expect a camera or two at any event.  But I have listened to what Romney said about the 47% and I have to tell you the media (lets just call them the left) has it dead wrong.  That sadly is to be expected as they sleep with President Obama more  than Monica Lewinsky shared a cigar with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office.

Romney in his discussion with potential donors was laying out a political strategy and what he said from my take was that in terms of votes you have to forget the 47% and write them off as Obama votes.  I don’t know about you folks but I call this a worst case scenario.  It appears to me that Mitt understood the potential to lose at least 47% of the vote based solely on Obama’s charisma and ability to lie to the masses about what he is doing.  So politically you write off those 47% and focus on the rest of the country.  Polls show this to be a close race and Romney is not stupid, he knows he needs to move that middle ground.

What he was laying out was a political strategy on winning an election.  Not an indictment of that 47%.  Many of whom are unwitting victims of the policies of Barack Obama.  Food Stamp payments are up, and while unemployment dropped it is mostly due to people giving up looking for jobs.  Apathy now rules the land and any candidate who does not acknowledge that is doomed.

The left will spin these comments the best they can because they can’t really tell you the truth about the record of Barack Obama, but the numbers don’t lie.  Highest Gas prices Ever!  Including a rise in price after labor day, which has historically never happened. Unemployment above 8 percent for the longest time in modern history.  The nationalization of a car company and the sale of another to a foreign entity.  And government control of both the healthcare and credit system.
Romney has a lot to talk about but who can he talk to?  He stated the worst case scenario hoping for the best.  How about you?  My worst case scenario is 4 more years of Barack Obama with a Senate controlled by Harry Reid.  Even if Romney gets elected without the Senate nothing will get done.  SO forget the chatter from the left.  Think about this.

Take back the country!  Ignore the distractions!

Alan Colmes: Out of Bounds!


If you will indulge me. Click on the link and watch this video.  No need to watch the whole debate but the very first thing Alan Colmes talks about.

http://nation.foxnews.com/rick-santorum/2012/01/02/fiery-debate-breaks-out-between-lowry-and-colmes

I can not begin to tell you how wrong what aired today on Fox News Channel is.  Alan Colmes literally mocked the reaction of a grieving family over how they handled that grief.   How can any human honestly believe that they can say what is weird and what is not when it comes to the grief process.  But it gets worse.

Mark McKinnon one of the founders of “No Labels” a group of people from both parties and some independents decided to weigh in on Santorum to Fox News Radio, here is what MCKinnon had to say:

With the prospect of former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum running for president (Iowa is nice the time of year.), former Bush adviser Mark McKinnon is scared by the thoughtof such a possibility.

“Santorum represents, in my view, much of what is wrong the in the Republican Party. While I disagree with him on some fundamental issues, I am much more concerned with his lack of character.”

And then there is this little known tidbit: “I’m a pretty tolerant guy, but beyond his ideology, some of Santorum’s behavior is just a little bizarre. For example, Santorum has six children. In 1996, he had son born prematurely who lived for only two hours. He and wife brought the child home and introduced the dead infant to the rest of their children as ‘your brother Gabriel’ and slept with the body overnight.”

Based on what I can see of McKinnon he is not by any means a conservative.  His view of the conservative movement as a problem for tthe Republican party.  But more importantly he has the temerity to call Santorum’s actions bizarre.  This was a guy who worked for G.W.  Bush.

Getting back to Colmes, I guess Alan does not read Salon.com much. Here is a 2008 piece by a college professor Elizabeth Heineman who lost her full term baby during childbirth. Please have a look at this story and tell me how different it is from the Santorum scenario?

http://life.salon.com/2011/10/07/my_stillborn_childs_life_after_death/singleton/

The bond between mother and child and for that matter father and child should not be a state dictated or for that matter hospital dictated process.  Alan Colmes calling out Santorum’s moment of grief on national televison should go down in history as one of the most evil acts in political history.  It was nothing short of a bold-faced attack on what Alan sees as a conservative.  He obviously did not take the feelings of Santorum or his wife into account.  Nor did he consider the many other people like Elizabeth Heineman who chose to bond with their babies before having to bury them.

Alan , now would be a good time to apologize to anyone with a heart. Since you seem to lack one.

The Iowa Straw Poll. The results are in!


Over the last few days,  many of the candidates for the Republican nomination gathered in Iowa to demonstrate who has the muscle to win the nomination and eventually the Presidency.  Candidates are spending big money on barbeque and country stars.   They rent big tents and install air conditioning so their supporters will be comfortable when the vote for them.  The Lame Stream Media hype the hell out of this event, talking about a candidates strengths and weaknesses.  Turn on a TV station on August 13, 2011 and you will hear wall to wall coverage of one of the least populous states in the country.  Pigs might outrank people in Iowa.  But here we are sitting in our living rooms watching the talking heads fan the flames of politics on an event that during its brief history has had very little success picking either the Republican Nominee or the winner of a general election.  The only candidate to run the board of Iowa Straw poll, The Iowa Caucus and the republican nomination was George W. Bush, and for the record he gave us Medicare part D and the first bailouts.  Hardly a conservative stance.

I do not live in a conservative state   I live in a liberal state and the people of Iowa are so far removed from my reality that what they decide has zero effect on me.  Iowa picked Bob Dole.  Bob won the nomination and lost the General election.  Iowa picked  GWB’s Dad in the 980 race.  Which was won by Ronald Reagan with GHWB as his VP.  Sadly 8 years later the country elected the elder Bush and he immediately turned on his number one promise.  NO NEW TAXES!

Folks this is nothing more than political theater.  Go investigate the voting records of these people.  Read what they said about the  things that matter to you.  But by no means should we think that Iowa is the standard-bearer.  They voted for Obama in 2008.

Folks, take in this whole thing as an amusing distraction but Iowa is not a snapshot of the US.  It is a narrow vista being bought by the Republican party to enhance its image.

The winner of the Republican nomination and possibly the Presidency may not have entered the race yet!  It is s long road to November 2012.

I grow weary of Chuck Schumer.


I can’t begin to tell you how much the New York Democrats are beginning to sound like a broken bad record.  Between Anthony (whiny) Weiner and Chuck (you) Schumer.  They are a couple of talking point ventriloquists.   But today Chucky boy wandered off script and called the freshmen in congress fleas.  I want you to read this article from The Hill.

Schumer likens conservatives to a flea

By Josiah Ryan – 04/08/11 03:39 PM ET

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) compared House conservatives to a flea Friday as rhetoric in the spending fight intensified.

Schumer, who has been criticizing Republicans all day, said in a floor speech Friday that conservatives were the flea controlling the dog, which he said in this case is a federal government that could shut down at midnight.

“What we have here is a flea, wagging a tail, wagging a dog,” said Schumer, chairman of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee.

“The flea are the minority of House Republicans who are hard right, the tail is the House Republican caucus, and the dog is the government,” Schumer explained. “That flea is influencing what the dog does … and it is sad.”

Schumer for more than a week has been arguing that Tea Party conservatives will be to blame if there is a shutdown.

“When either party goes to the extreme they don’t do the right thing,” said Schumer. “My experience is they lose politically, but much more importantly they do what is wrong for the country substantively.”

If a deal to fund the government is not struck before midnight today, the government will shut down.

Let me be clear here  (as Obama is prone to say)  there is no doubt this is just a variation on the same old tired “EXTREME” talking point Schumer the Gloomer was caught teaching to fellow Democrats a week ago.  But when caught in a lie.  Don’t stop saying it.  Just change the way you say it.  Chuck is getting really good at this tactic.  Calling the people that the majority of Americans voted into office in November fleas.  This is one big hyperbole to describe an extreme that Schumer is trying to point out.  The flea wagging the whole dog!

The people of this country should be tired of this type of rhetoric. There is nothing productive about what Schumer is doing.  I can not figure out why people fall for this.  But Chuck, Antny Weinie and other politicians are not adding to the dialogue with this stuff. As a matter of fact they are not informing you about anything.  What they are doing is fanning the flames.  Please go back and Google Schumer and find me one comment where he actually said something constructive in the public domain.  You know a plan to cut taxes or why we need to spend on a specific project.  I ask that you post it here so we all can learn how much Chuck contributes to the Republic.  I await the positive input.  Good Luck!
