Ever since Mitt Romney’s infamous comment about the 47% tongues have been wagging, and it’s not all good. Romney is notorious for political mis-speak. This comment is the latest example of his political ineptness. The good thing is, he has shown his true colors and what he truly believes. Many who support him now feel alienated, because many of them are part of the 47% That Mr. Romney looks down on from on high.
The gift that keeps giving
The Republicans hit an all time low in the persona of Todd Akin, who made the outrageous claim that a woman could not get pregnant if she was raped. This incredibly stupid remark created a firestorm of controversy. His behavior and words were so damning that his fellow Republicans begged him [Akin] not to show his face at the GOP convention this weekend.
Mr. Akin is not alone in showing poor judgement and words. This is only another example of anti-woman rhetoric that has become common place among the GOP. Women are leaving the ranks of the GOP in droves! All of this ultimately plays right into the hands of Pres. Obama and his re-election bid.
This past week when Congress passed raising the debt limit, it was a triumphant time for the American people. The surprise appearance by Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was a moment that both Congress and the American people needed. In her brief appearance before Congress to cast her vote in favor of raising the debt limit, she gave both houses of Congress, Democrats and Republicans alike a lesson in civility. Her strength and resolve to make the trip to Washington to cast her vote spoke volumes to all Americans. Congresswoman Giffords is a charming and humble public servant. The rest of Congress could learn a lesson from Gabrielle Giffords. Amid much rancor and acrimony, Gabrielle Giffords’ presence seemed to help calm the divide between those factions feuding over the debt limit increase.
Pres. Barack Obama and Republicans have had a contentious relationship to say the least. In the past few weeks the American public has been inundated with the ongoing drama regarding the debt ceiling. President Obama has done everything except use bleach to gain consensus from the Republicans. It appears that they are dead set on no, no matter what President Obama does.
To understand the Republicans resistance and recalcitrance on raising the debt limit, one must go back to the first President Bush. Many Americans may recall the first president Bush and his no new taxes pledge. Mr. Bush gained infamy for his campaign slogan, “read my lips.” As history shows, it wasn’t too long after Mr. Bush was in office, he was forced to raise taxes. This was a big part of the reason why he lost favor with Americans in general, and the Republican Party in particular.
Sarah Palin Campaign, tongue in cheek video lampooning a ridiculous pairing of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachman on a run for the white house in 2012. I hope it happens so Obama can get re-elected!
Now that we have your attention, keep checking for our next article that explains why President Obama will get reelected and why the Republicans will fall short. Sarah Palin's star is fading and she has become a non-entity. Look for our new article by weeks end!
Not only did Mr. Walesa successfully organize his union, he had an ally in Ronald Reagan! That’s right President Ronald Reagan. At the height of the Solidarity Movement in Poland government forces fired on demonstrators on December 16, 1981. Paramilitary riot police killed nine demonstrators and seriously wounded twenty two.
From all accounts the former CEO of Godfather’s pizza is the embodiment of the American dream. He has come a long way to reach the promised land that all of us seek an America. This article isn’t so much about Herman Cain as much as the agenda of the tea party and the far right to use him as the anti-racist antidote against charges of racism leveled at the tea party.
Casually firing a weapon at a firing range is one thing. Having to shoot in a high stress, life or death situation is another. As a liberal republican, I say let's get real and at least have honest dialogue about gun control. Or are we willing to sit idley by until the next tragic shooting, only to repeat the process all over again?
Most reasonable people want their president / leaders to be smarter than them. Sarah Palin’s lack of intellectual ability leaves much to be desired. Obama Republicans, Liberal Republicans and Recovering Republicans cringe at the notion of her ever occupying the white house.
