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.
If the American electorate was presented with the following candidate you would not vote for him. Someone who would intentionally send jobs overseas, not release his tax returns, hides his vast wealth in offshore bank accounts and protect his rich buddies with tax loopholes, who are in the top 1%.
So the question is, why would you vote for such a man? Simple answer, because he’s white! There is so much vitriol in the loud anti Obama chorus and most of it is tied to the fact that President Obama is black. I can understand if you disagree with his policies or you feel he does not have your interest on political and social issues. Let’s keep it real; most people who support or want to vote for Mitt Romney are doing it for one reason and one reason only; he’s white!
Don’t count Rick Santorum out just yet. His three state sweep of the Republican caucuses have determined that Mitt Romney may not be the heir apparent that we would like to believe. One thing is for certain as the GOP tries to chose a nominee they feel that can take on President Obama.
Rick Santorum went through Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado like a right-wing blizzard. His tri-state victory should be a wake up call for Romney. It’s not going to be the cake walk that he [Romney] anticipated.
Sarah Palin is done!
The bombshell that was dropped this past week by writer Joe McGinniss has rocked the political world. Sarah Palin appears to be another disingenuous conservative who is not what she appears to be. Her conservative credentials have been tarnished and rendered null and void. Hopefully this book, which is an unauthorized biography, will close a chapter in the comic tragedy which is Sarah Palin.
At the conclusion of last week’s GOP debate, the big question is, does Mitt Romney have a chance to become president? Before Rick Perry’s entrance into the campaign, Michele Bachmann was the one who seem to be the front runner; now enter Rick Perry. The GOP debate turned out to be a duel between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry.
If this writer had his druthers, I would definitely support Mitt Romney over Rick Perry. While very much an Obama supporter, the current field of Republicans don’t seem to offer much. Rick Perry is certifiably crazy and just as dangerous as Michele Bachmann. It’s interesting that the moderator did not ask Rick Perry about his stance on Texas seceding from the union. One would think, given that position, would you really want a secessionist in the White House?
The 2012 election will be interesting. This past Monday, June 13th, the GOP show cased their potential 2012 candidates in a debate televised on CNN. After all the pomp and circumstance, it appears to be a race to the bottom. Sadly, it appears the Mormon is the only sane one in the bunch! 2012 election, interesting indeed!
Michele Bachmann – Appears to be the one that stole the show in the debate. She is the chair of the Tea Party Caucus in congress. She at least had the cojones to admit she was wrong for her historical faux pas on Concord. Contrast this to Sarah Palin, who doubles down on her idiotic statements on history. Her [Sarah Palin] staff, actually tried to get Wikipedia to rewrite history on Paul Revere’s ride to warn the patriots, not the British. Michele Bachmann is seen as part of lunatic fringe.
The following article was written by guest blogger, Michael Knight.
I know what you are thinking; this article is going to be a criticism on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s, former Republican Governor of California, and recent discovery within his personal life; the answer is no. This is not an attack on just Arnold but more importantly the family values that his party holds and in recent news the contradiction of those family values. When one thinks of a Republican a lot of things come to mind. One that pops up right away is a party where its foundation is rooted on traditional family values. This is also a party heavily opposed to those within the gay community getting married; not the family values they espouse.
