Romney is Not the Candidate Yet

Posted on February 5, 2012. Filed under: National | Tags: , , , , |

After Romney’s victory in Nevada last night the network talking heads again declared him the Republican candidate. At present he has a total of 97 delegates, he needs a minimum of 1144 to cinch the nomination. Five states have made their decisions. Lets do the math. Forty-five states still have to pick their nominee. Romney still needs a minimum of 1047 additional delegates. The fat lady has not sung yet.

In the good old boys manner of running the Republican party, its Romney’s turn to be president. He has played the game, running against other good old boys in previous primaries, working his way to the head of the line. In the view of Republican powers that be, we voters should get with the program and make it happen.

They say Romney is the “only one” who can beat Obama. I disagree. Romney-care takes Obama-care off the table in the general election. That God-awful monstrosity that energized and inspired so many of us to find our voice will be a non-issue in a Romney vs. Obama race.

Romney is such a liberal Republican that he would be hard pressed to roll back all the additional regulations imposed by the Obama regime, cut spending, and curb our growing national dept. He approves of Obama-care and would not help in any effort to achieve its repeal. In fact, I’ll say right now that if we achieved the majorities needed to pass a repeal measure; Romney would veto it.

However, the primaries are not over yet, no matter what the political commentators would have us believe. Forty-five states still have the chance to let their wishes be known and Romney still needs to gather in those remaining 1047 delegates.

Don’t Blink: Call His Bluff

Posted on July 16, 2011. Filed under: National | Tags: , , , , |

That’s our plea to the Republican’s involved in the debt ceiling discussion with his royal highness, Obama.

My fear is that our sometimes (well most of the time) lily-livered Republican leaders will get scared of “political ramifications” and back down.

For once, they should concern themselves with doing what’s right, what the American people want them to do. If they back down and make another stupid deal with the Marxist-in-Chief; we stand a very good chance of losing our country forever.

We elected a Republican majority to Congress in 2010 so that Obama could be stopped. Too bad we couldn’t elect the Speaker of the House and put a principled leader into that position. Each and every time the Republicans draw a line in the sand for Obama to cross they go back the next day (or within hours) and smooth the line away.

Obama didn’t give me headaches, he just made me angry. The combination of Obama and Boehner keep my head throbbing and my blood pressure way too high. I’m sure I’m not alone.

Obama says if no agreement is reached he can’t guarantee Social Security or military pay and pension checks will go out. What a lie and dirty trick.

If the checks don’t go out it will because Obama decided to punish seniors and military folks, not because there is no money. There are plenty of revenues pouring into the treasury to cover the debt payments and obligations to Social Security, and retired and current military personnel. Don’t be fooled by smooth rhetoric on that one. We are being lied to, again.

Sure, if we reach the debt ceiling there will have to be cuts. Some departments will have to lay off workers. Oh my! Well, we regular citizens have lived through lay offs and reduced hours for years now. Why should government workers be exempt? Let them feel our pain. Maybe they will pay attention after they go through the agony the rest of us have endured since Obama became President.

Thoughts on the Tucson Massacre Aftermath

Posted on January 12, 2011. Filed under: National | Tags: , , |

I really hope that President Obama refrains from turning the mass murder in Tucson into a political issue when he speaks tonight. So far, he has taken the high road in his comments regarding the tragic events that took place Saturday. I was pleased with that.

I am not pleased with the almost instantaneous blame game undertaken by the Progressives. Everyone was blamed for the incident; Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Mark Levin, Fox News, and the list goes on. Starting with the completely unprofessional attempt by the Pima County Sherriff to cast blame on Conservative discourse, the accusations where slung out from the Progressives like leaves in a hurricane.

The truth is not as inflammatory. The shooter is a mental case. The only inflammatory rhetoric he listens too is from the voices inside his head. He lives in his own world and testimony of those who know him and his own writings show us all how seriously mentally ill the young man really is.

I and my family are praying for all the victim’s of the tragedy and their families.

We are also praying that the left-wing extremists don’t take this opportunity to stifle free speech and responsible gun ownership in this great land.

The care of the seriously mentally ill is deficient in this country. What should be addressed instead of free speech and gun ownership is the proper care and restraint of the seriously mentally ill so they cannot do harm to themselves or others.
