The fact that Greece’s economy is collapsing (Oh, and we forgot to tell you, Puerto Rico’s is too) got pushed onto the back burner today because the big man, the ponderous pontifical pontoon of New Jersey, Chris Christie, announced his run for President in his old high school gym. And what a melodramatic oration it was—the fat boy of New Jersey made it to the top.
And he did it all by being a typical politician. He speaks well. He looks like he will get things done. The speech was the same old song…”I will represent the People!”
Right. And my grandmother is still alive and working for Hooters.
Christie let it be known that he wasn’t going to mess around: His message was, crooks have taken your social security, and therefore, it’s broke. But I’m the only guy who is going fix it. I will do what’s right, not what’s popular and therefore, I’m the man to save the country. You will have to get less, and work longer…that’s just the fact folks, so belly up your money.
Uh…we already have one of these “my way or the highway” buffoons in the White House, which was Christie’s message.
While many people are knocking Donald Trump, compared to Chris Christie, Donald is mellow. I’d take his “You’re fired” any day of the week to Christie’s “Shut up!” I have visions of Christie telling the American people on a daily basis, “SHUT UP! I will TELL you how it’s going to be!”
Christie’s sight has always been for the Presidency. His speech at the Republican Convention was all about HIM…not Romney. Everybody was going “Huh?” What’s he talking about? I thought he was going to praise Romney? Truly it was a slap in the face. And then when he came out embracing Obama right before the election, many people thought THAT lost the election for Romney. If Christie couldn’t stand by the conservatives, and stay away from Obama for one more week, then what?
It was a major slap in the fact to Romney.
It was all about Christie. To us, and in retrospect, Christie knew he could destroy Romney, but then that’s good, because running against Obama in 2016 would be great for him. And that was his plan.
It was a selfish move for the country. But come on..the guy has a HUGE appetite. He wants the big banana. He wants it all….and he’s foaming at the mouth for it.
Personally, I think the democrats will stay off him, because at heart, he’s a New Jersey boy: And what do you think of when you think of New Jersey?
Corruption. Mafia. Union…thugs. Men who push their weight around and are used to getting their way.
That’s Chris Christie.
At first, we were all amazed at his brazenness.
Now, he’s just another schoolyard bully.
Like I said, we already have on bully in the White House. Why elect another?
Here’s a question to ponder: Why in the world, would anyone want to spend millions, (in a few cases billions) of dollars just to become President? The job pays…$400,000.
Sure: There are the obvious perks: The best chef in the world, Air Force One, anything in the world you want is yours for the asking. Power, money, control, your place in history—but then again, think of the job? Who in their right mind would want that job?
Is it me? Or is the fact that so MANY people are running this year a bit–excessive? Surely they all know that the more that get in the race, the less chance they might have of winning. That’s not stopping any of them.
That question has been bothering me. Most of us are very pleased to see so many likable candidates reaching out to the American people for support. Everybody knows—- unless you are a Woody Harrison look-a-like surfer and living on welfare, that we are heading for a collapse…of some kind. If the Iranians don’t attack, then there’s Russia, or China, and it’s not just the Syrians running out of their country–according to Alex Jones, ALL the billionaires are grabbing what gold they have and moving to their New Zealand bunkers. Even Texas wants it’s gold back from the Feds.
The rich rats are jumping off the ship in droves, so to speak.
But back to the question: Why are so many running?
Many seem very sincere: Among those Cruz, Paul, Rubio, Carson, and Fiorina.
But Huckabee? Santorum? Graham? Really?
These people want that job BADLY. You can hear it in their voices. For instance, watch in this fabulous speech at the Faith and Freedom Coalition, how Carly Fiorina is fighting back to get a place on the debate ticket, which is democracy at its best don’t you think? (Okay…that was supposed to be sarcastic.) She is going gangbusters (the speech was great: Start at 10.00, and if you have little time, go ahead to 20.00 the ending is brilliant.) but the “polls’ could kick her out of the debates.
Sorry America….WE decide the polls. (You know, the rich and powerfully paid.)
The GOP decides whether you are ‘popular’ enough to be in the debates?
People are so MAD at politicians they could spit. So therefore, Trump and Fiorina look to be the only two business candidates, which to many, gives them an advantage.
And Trump is trying to eliminate her (who is his best competition) by saying she lost big in California.
To a CONSERVATIVE…that’s a badge of honor. California doesn’t want her? She must be doing something right.
But here’s a thought…dare I speak it? If I would put myself in their place…IF the world is headed for WW III, or a total economic collapse..(read the web, it’s EVERYWHERE.) There would be NO better job of the planet to have than to be the President of the United States.
So, one must honestly ask: Is this race also about sheer survival?
Think of it: If you were President, with all the thousands of people protecting just you alone, and your family, you WOULD survive, even if the whole planet went under.
You might have to stay out of the sun in your extra luxurious hidden bunker for a few years, but most people would be happy to be there.
Let’s see…what would their bunkers look like?:
Cruz? No, he really seems sincere about it…I can’t put him up there. But his dad’s presence alone would make everybody else want to be there.
Paul? His own father is trying to warn the world that it is coming. They could sit in the bunker and say, “We TRIED to warn them.”
Rubio? Not sure…what did Jeb Bush show him? We don’t know. But Rubio would probably start a good re-population program of little Rubio’s…there would be a lot of future kids.
Carson? Carson is NOT stupid….at least he wouldn’t need a doctor.
Huckabee? Oh yes, he wants in that bunker. And I’m sure he already has a bunker just in case, with a concert hall.
Graham? Hell yes. I’m thinkin….The whole Bunny Ranch.
Fiorina? She would probably be busy working on a NEW America the whole time.
Walker? He’s a question mark to me. They keep him off the TV pretty much..Who IS this guy? Is he the wild card?
Trump? As much as I like the guy, he would definitely want that power to have his whole family protected. To him it would be a no-brainer. He would redesign whatever bunker Obama has designed on the first day, with the Trump lettering on all the bunker towels. Everybody would be afraid to use them.
Should we all be so cynical to think that ALL these people running truly want to save America? Every one of them is selfless?
Ha ha! Does Bill Clinton like to use oblong objects on young interns in hallways?
Anyway, as we watch Obama travel the world playing golf, you have to wonder…
When is the executive order coming to suspend the 2016 Presidential election? Is he trying to cause a massive attack in order to keep himself in power?
Scary thought isn’t it? (Scarlett O’Hara says: I just won’t think of that today..I’ll worry about that tomorrow!)
If the world is as bad as we are all reading…
Then Obama won’t even have to make a phone call…all he will need is his pen….and his putter.
And probably…his favorite pizza maker from St. Louis.
–How COULD the GOP be more clueless. Jeb Bush just did a “slow jam” with Jimmy Fallon, and notice…how stupid his handlers were.
Jimmy Fallon AND the black guy behind him…all they did was make sexual innuendo jokes. And Jeb played along?
How stupid is this guy? Or…how desperate?
That did NOT happen with Obama. With Obama the black guy singer, AND Jimmy Fallon, sang about pushing Obama’s agenda and blaming the GOP Congress.
Now, notice how they treat Jeb.
They made Jeb Bush look like a fool. And yet, somebody at the Bush organization thought this was a good idea?
Anyway, here’s Jeb…now compare…the subtle lack of respect.
It’s a funny skit, but do you think the Bush organization even gets the fact that they are very cleverly being mocked? Master…bater?
Well…HE DID IT!
And boy, did he send some mighty big shock waves through the party-controlled media.
After his speech, FOX sort of just pushed off talking about it, and CNN didn’t even mention it.
Rush Limbaugh said he laughed all through it.
I thought it was a great speech. But then, who am I? Just a Nobody…sorry Rush. For all the great founding documents (and I am of course as proud of that as any) the REAL reason America became so great is because of the great wealth we created from the start…and Donald is right. America needs to get rich again.
Maybe Rush should get off the golf courses too, and look around.
This vast land…gave the simple man who came over from Europe…all he needed to have to build, to invent, to create, to exceed, to become the biggest winners on the planet.
And our politicians, have taken all that away. Year by year. Inch by inch. They are choking us…and Obama is daily shaming us.
Donald showed….REAL passion. Everybody else looks like they rehearsed for months just to say a simple line off their notes.
Okay, it’s no secret I like Donald….and want to know something else? I’ve never seen his show…but I HAVE read his books…and he is the real deal.
Now, let’s see what all the other guys have to offer..right?
Isn’t it refreshing to hear someone NOT speak in politicians crapola?
I’m STILL hoping Donald Trump runs.
They say…he might announce…tomorrow.
Both Jeb and Hillary’s people will be doing double face palms.
How many people got so sick and tired of hearing about the poor mistreated black people in Baltimore, so they turned off their TVs, and went out to enjoy the spring weather…raise your hands?
Here’s what I want to know: What did we learn from this besides the fact that, whenever liberals get together to celebrate in the streets, some damn fool has to bring out his bongo’s? No offense to African American bongo players…, but Jeeeeezzz…you are insulting pygmies, and many fond memories of Dobie Gillis.
Go home and practice will ya?
In order to ‘impress’ and calm down those poor black people, they bought in a young woman who not only told us how she came to this great moment in her short life…as a prosecuting attorney of Baltimore, but we got full details of what those cops did to ‘kill’ that black man in Baltimore, which came down to …they didn’t buckle his seat belt.
Baltimore it’s been reported (I’ve read, because I got tired of watching it) has been celebrating hard at the news, only to direct America to the fact that more ‘riots’ are to come, and even more good news on top of that:
Hillary Clinton will now have competition from her own party, and it comes in the form of a man who RAN Baltimore for the last decade: Governor Martin O’Malley.
In the words of Rahm Emmanuel, “Never let a crisis go to waste.” O’Malley, who was in Ireland at the time of the riots, has rushed back to save not only the city he help destroy, but the whole country. Kennedy is dead, so the next best Irish democrat, sees the opportunity of his lifetime, and has decided to run for President…Hillary now has two contenders!
It’s about damn time. I mean, what kind of screwed up-country has one person running from one side, and 40 from the other?
O’Malley is very hip: He declares the Hispanic immigrants the new Americans and wants them to have free college. He also backs gay marriage. And…he’s Catholic! He’s perfect.
But watch this video: here’s what makes him a fine candidate to challenge Hillary to a debate: Watch how he turns the very fact that Baltimore is a result of his policies, into, not it’s not HIS, but America’s fault.
Brilliant. I was confused after his first sentence. Republicans will never call Hillary a liar to her face in a debate, but this guy will talk rings around Hillary. She’ll get flustered just trying to get him to shut up. In fact, that’s got to be the ONLY reason the guy has stayed in office for as long as he has.
With Baltimore, it’s clear: Voters wanted a fraud they can believe in.
Today, Ron’s son came out to run for President 2016. Already the left and the Rino’s are on the attack…big time…
Something tells me, this time, their attacks are not going to stick. Right now, I would take any of them over Jeb Bush. Let’s hope this time, we get some supernatural help.
I’d settle for Buddha. Or the FORCE. Or Zeus. Or Jesus. Or the Planet Mars. Any supernatural force to come in and keep us from another Bush or Clinton would be welcomed at this point.
Enjoy this short clip. I did.
We are entering the century of American dynasties. Bushes VS the Clintons. Their grandchildren already have places carved out for them at the White House no doubt, and their personal butlers already picked.
Have you noticed? Hillary does not appear without Chelsea at her side, and it’s clear to everyone that she is being primed to someday run for President just like her mother. We now have two families that demand the mantle of “it’s my turn” crown…how did this happen?
I can still remember the Kennedy Dynasty and the night it died on the cross.
The death of young John F. Kennedy certified that the Clinton’s would be the new dynasty of the future. Everybody knew Caroline could not muster the mantle, and Ted was too old. So, how did the Kennedy’s take the Presidency and turn it into an American Kingdom?
If you said corruption and money..you WIN!
Here’s some excerpts from “A History of the American People” by Paul Johnson, and how the Kennedy’s defeated the much more experienced Richard Nixon:
Nixon was, for 8 years, Vice President to President Eisenhower and had sat in the House from 1947. He had traveled all over the world, and stood up to Nikita Khrushchev. He also had a distinguished wartime career in the Navy. Nixon also exposed Alger Hiss (as a communist) and Kennedy had praised him for doing so. Nixon was by all accounts a great Senator.
Kennedy had served in the House, and then as senator.
But in the sixties, the media turned, to what it is today. Especially the Eastern media. In other words, it was in the sixties that the liberals took over the press. And the way they presented Nixon laid the groundwork for what happens today.
Nixon should have been an America media hero. He came from nowhere. His family background was respectable but obscure. He worked his way through an unfashionable college. He had no money except what he earned by his own efforts. He had, to begin with, no influential friends of connections. He was an autodidact and voracious reader, always trying to better himself intellectually as well as professionally. Yet, from start to finish the media especially the “quality ” press, distrusted him, consistently denigrated him, and sought to destroy him. indeed in a sense did destroy him.
The media also destroyed him about Alger Hiss, they accused him of being a McCartheyite. Not until after Nixon’s death was Hiss found guilty.
By contrast the media did everything its power to build up and sustain the beatific myth of John F. Kennedy throughout his life and long after his death. The media protected him, suppressed what it knew to be the truth about him, and if necessary, lied about him , on a scale which it had never done even for FDR.
Joe Kennedy made his money illegally through money lending, Hollywood, stock jobbing and bootleg liquor among many other deals. His mob connections included Meyer Lansky, Frank Costello, and Doc Stacher. He wanted his oldest son to be President, but he was killed in the war.
So, Jack got the crown.
“I guess Dad has decided he’s going to be the ventriloquist, so that leaves me the role of dummy.”
But, Jack also dealt with gangsters and bluff. The list of lies told about his health were formidable. He was addicted to amphetamines, and his health and sexual life completely hidden by the press.
“Profiles in Courage”, which earn as a ‘disorganized” somewhat incoherent melange for secondary sources, was turned by Theodore Sorensen and team of academic historians and professional writers into a readable book, and won the Pulitzer prize for biography. Those who suggested the book was not written by Jack, were sued for libel or even, at Joe’s request, investigated by the FBI.
Old Joe set about making Kennedy first a congressman, then a senator, then president. Kennedy’s political ascent, however was based essentially on money and corruption. It is not always clear he was award of his father’s malpractices. Naturally he knew of the dishonesty and lies that made him a war hero and a literary celebrity. But getting him into the House and Senate took enormous sums of money.
Joe loaned the editor of the Boston Post half a million to secure his support. Essentially he was a half-ambitious, half-reluctant, dutiful son and heir following the masterful demands of his father to get to the top by fair means or foul.
Mafia money went to pay off key election officials including local sheriffs, who were handed a total of $50,000 to get out the Kennedy vote by any means. In return, Joe promised the mobsters assistance in federal investigation.
To win election, they invented lies…like the missile gap. Kennedy said that Eisenhower had allowed a missile gap, which was hogwash.
And then, there was the famous debate, in which the Kennedy’s knew Nixon had a bad knee, so they insisted on standing. They also knew he sweated a lot. They rigged that…and did everything they could to make Nixon look bad, although by all accounts, he won that debate.
Like Obama, Kennedy won…barely: 34,227,496 to 34,107,646.
Daley gave Kennedy the windy city, and Lyndon Johnson gave him Texas. Later there was evidence of fraud, and Nixon probably won by 250,000 votes.
We’ll never know.
So, Joe Kennedy, along with the help of the Mafia, and LOTS of money, got his son elected to President. And the mafia and the democrats have been in bed ever since. Everybody knows this: But nobody talks about it.
And doesn’t it make you wonder just WHO put up the money to get Obama elected? Mmmmmmm?
The media sold us Obama. Who are they going to sell us this time?
In other words…who’s the bigger crook?
And which dynasty will be left standing…the Clinton’s or the Bushes?
In the lifestyles of the rich and famous, Michael Bloomberg, is in the top one percent. He is the 16th richest person in the world, down from the 13th BECAUSE…of how much he had to spend to be Mayor of New York.
Michael has the proud honor of having spent the most self-financed campaign in U.S. History when he ran for a third term as mayor of New York. He spent almost $110 million of his own money to win in 2009, breaking his own previous record of $75 million that he spent in 2001 and 2005. This means that he spent about $185 dollars a vote and won by a margin of 4.4 percent.
“Bloomberg is richer than ever, with his fortune up $6 billion since last year, thanks to the performance of Bloomberg LP, the financial data firm he founded in 1982 after being fired from Salomon Brothers. He owns 88% of the company, which generated $8.3 billion in 2013 revenues. Bloomberg also owns at least 10 homes in Manhattan, Westchester County, Bermuda, Vail and the Hamptons”
How did ONE man become so rich, so rich that he even granted himself a third term as mayor, by changing the law?
He is THE King of Wall Street: From Wiki….
In 1982, Merrill Lynch became the new company’s first customer, installing 22 of the company’s Market Master terminals and investing $30 million in the company. The company was renamed Bloomberg L.P. in 1987. By 1990, it had installed 8,000 terminals. Over the years, ancillary products including Bloomberg News, Bloomberg Message, and Bloomberg Tradebook were launched.
On October 2, 2008, Bloomberg announced that he would seek to extend the city’s term limits law and run for a third mayoral term in 2009, arguing that a leader of his field is needed during the Wall Street financial crisis. “Handling this financial crisis while strengthening essential services … is a challenge I want to take on,”
He is socially liberal or progressive, supporting abortion rights, same-sex marriage, gun control measures, and a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants, for example. On economics, foreign, and domestic issues, Bloomberg tends to be conservative.
Nobody will be surprised if Bloomberg runs for President in 2016, against Hillary. This nobody thinks he might be the surprise nobody is counting on
After all, he fits the New World Order Presidential Control Freak…..PERFECTLY.
He’s a progressive Rino with lots of money.
On January 31, 2014, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced that he had appointed Mr. Bloomberg as his Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change, assisting him in consultations with mayors and related key stakeholders to raise political will and mobilize action among cities as part of a long-term strategy to advance efforts on climate change.
This year, Harvard gave Bloomberg and Daddy Bush awards, and Bloomberg delivered the commencement speech in which he scolded the students for not letting in the conservative voice….Like him—-the rich globalist Rino, which IS no different than Obama, or Hillary, or Jeb Bush, or Chris Christie.
We had Mitt Romney…Wall Street guy. Will Bloomberg get in the next race?
Remember, he HAS the money, and that was all he needed in New York.
And if Michael Bloomberg should get into the Presidency, would he continue the globalist agenda of controlling us all? Would he simply BAN guns like he banned big gulps? After all, Obama tried to get it done, but didn’t.
It’s official: Jeb Bush, who got a big interview on Fox this morning, is not running, but why then do we have to see Jeb Bush for a whole hour on Fox Sunday, if he’s not running? He’s been EVERYWHERE on cable.
I don’t know about you, but politicians getting hour-long programs about themselves, and then saying “I don’t know yet if I’m running.” is getting old. How stupid do they think we are?
My god, it was a Bush love fest on FOX this morning. They started out yesterday replaying the biography of Daddy Bush, a man who’s biggest accomplishment was…what again? Protecting Kuwait?
And some Bush kid said it was the right thing that Daddy Bush did not go in and get Saddam. They won’t tell you WHY it was right.
What? Did George W. needed a legacy?.
(Yes, I don’t like the Bushes, the Clinton’s, the Obama’s, the Pelosi’s, the Reid’s…want to see my list?)
As I watched it for the second time, I realized the whole family was saying things like–
“LOOK! Just think how impressed Vladimir Putin was when he rode on Daddy’s speed boat, and look how fast daddy’s boat can go!”
I’m sure Putin was really impressed. (You’re kidding me right?)
He took Putin for a ride on his boat? Wow. And we are supposed to feel GOOD that they all love Bill Clinton?
FACT: Daddy Bush was elected on the coat tails of Ronald Reagan. Nobody knew much about Herbert Walker…just that he promised to continued Reagan’s efforts. So he got in on that alone. After all, Ronald Reagan defeated Russia, and said the famous, ” Tear down this wall!” And the German people did.
Imagine my surprise today when Bill Gates (right after the interview with Jeb Bush) declared that it was George H.W. Bush that bought down the Berlin Wall and is finally getting credit. Telling the Tea Party Patriots of course, that Ronald Reagan did not do it, Bush did.
(Please. I know his legacy runs kind of short, but aren’t they reaching here?)
Bill Gates sounded like he was doing a job interview for his old job back. Lots of tough talk on what HE would do with Russia.
Anyway, Daddy Bush was born with more than a silver spoon in his mouth— more like a plutonium shovel. Prescott Bush was the man. HE was the big wealthy Wall Street guy. You can go a long way when dad has connections.
The love fest went on: Daddy Bush was the youngest fighter pilot (in my Nobody Opinion, his biggest accomplishment) And then they made the biggest deal about how brave he was to move to that dust bowl of Texas…and worked his way up to become a successful oil man.
As IF he started from scratch in the oil business like the rest of us.
In the biography of Daddy Bush, they didn’t talk much about his accomplishments in the CIA. (Were there any?) The hour-long program was mostly to promote the family as really good people. Daddy Bush can barbecue. Daddy Bush is very sweet. Daddy Bush had a nice dog. Mrs. Bush did most of the talking, and acted like he was just an old Fuddy dud.
(Which he is–now.)
You got It: After Daddy Bush…Jeb got his big interview.
There is one thing that is especially creepy to me, about Jeb, and it’s not his fault. He has all the same facial and “aw gosh shucks” expressions that George W. had. It’s a tick in the family that extremely annoying to watch.
And although Obama is the worst President in our history, many people (myself included) BLAME George W. for Obama even getting on the ticket.
Conservatives everywhere felt…betrayed by George W. Bush.
The Wall Street Bailout..was the nail. It was saying to the whole country, yes, the GOP looks out for big business before you guys, the democrats were right.
“I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system.” –George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Dec. 16, 2008
Jeb figures he won’t get the women vote, so he’s going for the Hispanics. He basically tells the good citizens of America that illegal immigration is an act of love for the starving people to come and feed their families.
What he doesn’t tell you is that this love is very expensive, and it’s YOUR expense–you just need to find it in your hearts…to love.
Hell Jeb, you feed them. YOU love them. Or better yet, go run for office in Mexico so they don’t have to leave. Take your favorite commie school program Common Core with you.
Jeb Bush says one factor in his decision will be whether he can deliver an optimistic message without getting drawn into a political “mud fight.”
“In my case, that means, ‘can one do it joyfully?’” he said.
He also says the other main factor in his decision to run will be whether it’s OK with his family
Really? We all know it’s okay with your family Jeb, but it’s not your family that runs America. (Or…is it?)
Really Jeb, move to Mexico and run for President there. If you do a good enough job, then, maybe we’ll think about it.
I am surprised they are starting Jeb’s campaigning so early, but I think this is more about stopping the Tea Party in Congress in 2014, than the 2016 elections. This is about the old-established GOP staying in control. When you can get your face on all the cable networks for free, and you’re not even running yet…that’s power. That’s…a monopoly. That’s not American. That’s Dynasty.
Jeb Bush says it’s all about “winning.” That’s right Jeb, so…do us all a favor, and don’t run. Or if you must…how about Mayor of Miami?
Okay. Confession. I was feeling pretty down today, but as I was doing my house cleaning I had CSpan on and the CPAC convention, ..and at the end, up came Sarah Palin—.
Who gave the speech of her life. It was inspiring, brilliant, entertaining, and the whole time all I kept thinking was “Put Hillary next to this women and Hillary would look like the boring old fool that she is.
So, the day just got better. I’m hoping Sarah runs.
This year’s CPAC was full of surprises. Every year, the candidate who won the straw poll, usually went on to win the nomination for the party, but this year, Karl Rove has his work cut out for him–it was the libertarian Rand Paul who won—Marco Rubio came in second, probably due to the fact that Ann Coulter ripped him to shreds about his immigration issues. As great as Rubio is: he is on board with amnesty, which would make him a good VP for Jeb Bush, and as Ann pointed out, you get amnesty, you get democrats forever more.
I bet Rubio didn’t see that coming. Nobody can steamroll you like Ann.
Already this morning Karl Rove was on some talk show, telling everyone that Rand Paul just got lucky and took a propitious moment doing the filibuster, because Eric Holder screwed up by not answering his questions on drones, and he ran with it. Karl thought it was smart, but then he went on another one of his famous Rove attacks. Why, nobody knows that Rand Paul would have arrested Anwar Al-Awlaki instead of killing him with a drone. Americans, don’t know how bad Rand Paul would be on protecting us.
I’ve heard Rand Paul talk about this incident, and he has said time and again that he is not against using drones in a war zone..but when the 16-year-old, Abdulrahman Al-Awlaki, was also killed in the attack, Jay Carney had this to say about it, and Rand Paul didn’t like it much:
“I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the well being of their children. I don’t think becoming an al Qaeda jihadist terrorist is the best way to go about doing your business.”
I listened to the speakers most of the day while I was cleaning my house.. all of them were good, some were boring. The crowd to me looked very small, and you have to wonder how much it costs to go there, rent a hotel, buy tickets…I know I couldn’t afford it. Republicans don’t bus people in.
Sarah Palin was amazing in her speech and form. She is becoming adept at being a great speaker, and no doubt will make most of her living off of it. She mixed the Big Gulp with the “I got the rack” joke. She was a real hit, but did she put her name in the straw poll?
No. Sarah has no intention of running. And then, after Sarah, came my favorite, Phyllis Schlafly, the grand old lady…walking slow, proud, she almost reminded me of the great Ronald Reagan. I first learned about her through Ann Coulter. To me, this woman is right up there with Margaret Thatcher. No, she never ran for office, but she has done great things for America…
Listen to this speech, it’s a winner! (start at 1.35 and skip the jokes if you like.)
Like the great Ronald Reagan, Mrs. Schlafly is a real fighter, and like Reagan she speaks with a clear, voice of reason.
She, more than anybody there…had it right. (In my Nobody Opinion)
There IS a fight for the heart and soul of the Republican party right now. This last loss was worst than the rest and Phyllis Schlafly hit the Rhino’s where it hurts. It’s probably the reason you can’t find her speech on YouTube. (I couldn’t.)
She called every one of the Republican nominees in the last decade a “bunch of losers.” And then she pointed out, who is keeping those losers at the top. Karl Rove.
“We need to have the grass roots take over these bunch of losers.”
And if there is an Rhino enemy list: in my mind, Karl Rove is right at the top, . Now, when I see Karl Rove on TV, I turn Fox off. If we all did that, sooner or later FOX would get him off of there. According to Phyllis, Karl had 400 millions to spend, on 31 candidates and he only won 7 races.
If CNN and MSNBC, are working for the Democrats, FOX has way too much time given to Karl Rove, who basically lost the last election for us. I don’t think he wanted Romney to win. If he comes out promoting Jeb Bush, then odds are, Romney’s loss was no big deal to him.
Of course the libs are already making fun of CPAC. One guy said it was as if he was watching some old outdated Moose lodge fraternity meeting. And really, that’s how they defeat us. The main points everyone made throughout the day was none of them were good at getting the message across.
The real problem is: The Republican message is very weak.
Nobody Suggests: We give Rand some help. I have been blaming George W. Bush for Obama being elected: It seems, I have been blaming the wrong person: It’s Karl Rove we need to get rid of.
I hate to say it, but I will: I never liked George H.W. Bush the first. There was something almost pansy about him…and for those of us who were living when Ronald Reagan was President, Daddy Bush (I always call him Daddy Bush) was annoying in comparison. His high winy voice grated on me. I hated to watch him on TV. The “Read my lips” phrase that he made, was more than just a blunder, it was almost as bad as when Bill Clinton wagged his finger and said, “I did NOT have sex with that women.”
Condescending Presidents…Why do they get so uppity and snotty, and condescending? Reagan never did. He was gracious throughout his life. He believed in us, and we believed in him.
And like most people, I hate liars. When Daddy Bush launched the first Iraq War…he gave the excuse that it was a NOBLE ONE…to ‘protect the poor innocent Kuwait’s.’ A big bully Saddam was attacking his neighbor, and the U.S. was going in to help. Every single politicians uses that excuse every single time they send our boys somewhere….because we are a good people, and it works.
We should stop falling for it.
Back when Daddy Bush was President, I hadn’t read about the great deals that President’s had made during WWII….how the British, and the Americans helped carve up the middle East. The oil deals FDR made with the Sheiks of Saudi Arabia. I didn’t think about all that….I just listened to the “glory” of an American victory.
But I’m younger than that now. And when George W. Bush ran, eight years of the masterful lying Bill Clinton was so bad, George was easily elected. And then 9.11 and we’ve been at war since.
No one in the Bush administration went down for not protecting the skies over America. The lies they told about it…”We NEVER imagined”…yada, yada: …were almost criminal.
So, eight years of Daddy Bush, eight years of Bill Clinton, eight years of Daddy’s Bush son, eight years of Obama, and now…they want to add eight years of Jeb Bush. That’s 24 years with one family.
I don’t think I can take eight years more of Daddy’s Bush continuing dreams of globalization..and eight years is a long time in one life. Lots can happen in eight years. It’s almost like there’s a club of elites who just rotate the power…isn’t it?
Last week I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh program and a caller called in and was in despair: In his lifetime, he realized he would never live to see America come back to its sanity. Rush was agreeing with him but he insisted that we must think of the grandchildren.
WHY? Don’t we have a right to get it right for ourselves in our own liftime? To me…that was accepting defeat.
And that’s what seems wrong to many of us.
For instance: Jeb Bush. Jeb Bush has been on every single talk show he can think of: it’s said he is promoting his book, but there isn’t one reporter that cannot help but ask him if he is running for President. And if you notice, he got a big touchy about it when asked who was the better candidate from Florida to run for President, himself, or Marco Rubio.
“Man you guys are crack addicts, you’re really obsessed with all this politics,” Bush said.
Obviously, Jeb Bush wants to run for President. He had come out early simply because Rand Paul is making a nice entrance as a contender with the filibuster, and the GOP-Rhino’s have to get their boy out there. Both his father and his brother have come out publically on many occasions and said they want to see Jeb in the White House. So, Jeb wasn’t mad about being asked if he is going to run…just like a true politician, he can’t announce it now…timing is everything, but the sound of Marco Rubio’s name infuriated him.
I am sick of lying politicians: Just be honest and say you’re going to run. Don’t give us this, “I am going to do what’s best for my family and the country.” crap.
What’s best for the country, is not another Bush. (Or Obama or Hillary, OR Bill) Leave the place empty…good lord, that poor house needs to be aired out.
I remember Daddy Bush taking Jeb to see Obama in the White House…several times. I have said, and I still say: That what the liberals should be harping about is that the good old boy’s white man WASP club wanted to let a black man in the White House, because the truth being, they wanted Universal Health Care to pass, and amnesty and they didn’t want the GOP to be remembered as having passed it. Even Jeb Bush says that next to Obama, George W. Bush will be well thought of.
So…Daddy sees it as Obama will be SO bad, everyone will welcome Jeb just like they did George W.so many years ago because they were sick of Clinton. If Jeb had run last time, he would have lost.
For Jeb Bush to say that reporters are addicted to politics, while he is appearing on all their shows promoting himself to be the next President, while at the same time saying he is from the Reagan party…is so insidiously hypocritical, it’s almost laughable.
If anyone is an addict, it’s the Bush Family. They are so addicted to power, they plan to have President from their family clear up into the year 3000. . And the Bush Presidents, have just as much as Obama—- have helped to put America where it is today.
Too bad they don’t have Betty Ford power-rehab for politicians.
What do we do? We stand up for any Tea Party people we can…we keep on yelling, fighting, and get louder. And we should demand that the rich boys in Washington give power back to the people…and in our own lifetime..
Sorry Rush…if you can’t see that we deserve better in our own lifetime… then obviously, the Bush family is still sending you birthday cakes. And you will be leading the nation on the Jeb Bush for President pathway…
Don’t be surprised this time, if even more of us…stay home.
Once upon a time, my first husband and I decided to drive to California. Somewhere around Flagstaff, he had the great idea that HE KNEW a shortcut..
While, being the only sane person in the car with a sense of direction, I objected, but he insisted, as he pulled out some map some guy had given him at work..and we ended up hours later, lost…somewhere in the vast desert of Arizona…only about 900 miles out of our way, and 100 miles from any known gas station. It seemed a very lonely place that desert. I can’t imagine walking across it at night.
But millions do. And John McCain was at a town hall meeting recently in Arizona, talking about immigration:
One man yelled that only guns would discourage illegal immigration. Another man complained that illegal immigrants should never be able to become citizens or vote. A third man said illegal immigrants were illiterate invaders who wanted free government benefits.
McCain urged compassion. “We are a Judeo-Christian nation,” he said.
When McCain was running for President, the only thing we were told was that he had spent years in Vietnam as a prisoner of war, and came back and divorced his wife, and his campaign was saved by Sarah Palin. That’s all I know about John McCain, besides his Rhinoness.
BUT..I’m cleaning out old magazines this week, and low and behold, I found gold: According to the GLOBE (I know…I love it) John McCain and his wife were doing a really nice Jesse Jackson Jr. scam.
Once upon a time, Cindy McCain, who was already heir to $100 million dollar fortune which included a Anheuser -Busch beer distribution, decided to go into charity, (As all rich people do) and so she founded the American Voluntary Medical Team , a non-profit organization that would send doctors and nurses all over the third world . But Cindy was evidently stealing drugs like Vicondin and Percocer without anyone knowing it, and not small amounts either. John made it so Cindy could sail through customs without being checked. They caught her at it, and shut down her charity. John got her a good attorney and that was the end of that. We might remember that Rush Limbaugh was addicted to the same pain pills. Cindy went into drug rehab.
Too bad. Also…according to the article:
While none of this seems important today, Nobody Wonders: Here you had a drug addict, and a man who really had been involved in the Savings and Loan Scandals of the sixties, so Nobody Wonders why in the world did we not hear about all this stuff from Obama’s boys during the elections?
Compare John’s background to Mitt Romney–…Not one word was said about McCain.
And NOBODY Wonders…why?
