I’m literally on a flight back to Los Angeles from Phoenix , Arizona as I write this post. Being a native son of the state, I’m conflicted about the states position state’s position on a lot of controversial social and political issues. In light of the recent tragedy in Tucson, I was motivated to deal with the issue of gun control or the lack thereof. As a liberal republican and Obama republican, I felt it was my duty to address this issue.
President Obama held his own with Bill O’Reilly on Superbowl Sunday. He showed incredible poise given the disrespectful and hostile interview he was subjected to. At first I thought it was just me since I’m such a big fan of the president.
In the days following the interview, co-workers and friends all concurred that O’Reilly had no sense of professional etiquette or decorum in his interaction with President Obama. Bill Maher on his show Friday evening went on a rant on O’Reilly’s lack of respect for President Obama and brought up some good points.
Sarah Palin is somewhat of an enigma to most Americans. She is not even vaguely qualified to run for the highest office in the land, yet she pursues it. You have to give her credit for the chutzpah she has. If it’s one thing she is not lacking it’s self confidence!
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. Mainstream Republicans for that matter put plenty of distance between themselves and Sarah Palin.
Sarah Palin really scares me! Her most recent gaffe on the Glenn Beck show proves how spectacularly stupid she is! Anyone with half a brain yelled out a resounding WTF! The following article was submitted by ABC News.
Was it a simple blunder or did a possible 2012 presidential contender really get her geography wrong? That’s the question being debated after Sarah Palin said in an interview with Glenn Beck Wednesday that North Korea was a U.S. ally.
When the news broke that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia had a meeting behind closed doors with the tea party; the news reverberated across the country.
Anyone with a basic understanding of the Supreme Court knows that the Constitution provides for separation of powers. This highly partisan act hurts the court in terms of being viewed as impartial. Continue reading Antonin Scalia, The Supreme Court and the Tea Party
The vicious attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was horrific but not surprising. As shocking and repugnant as the attack was, it was inevitable. There has been a climate of hate and intolerance that has been in the air since President Obama’s election.
Rep. Giffords by all accounts was a moderate democrat, not quite a blue dog democrat. She was pro NRA and a staunch defender of the constitution. She narrowly defeated a tea party candidate winning a third term during the mid-term elections. Not quite the liberal target you would suspect for such a politically motivated attack.
The following article proves my theory that only the trailer park and Jed Clampett’s of the fringe elements of the GOP would support Sarah Palin in a bid for the 2012 presidential campaign.
Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor, is among the more natural populist politicians of our time, frequently critiquing elites in the press, the Democratic Party, and the Republican establishment. It is one of the reasons — along with her working-class background and the sense of authenticity that she can often convey — that she is so popular with some voters.
Those of us who are still lucid and sane need to keep an eye on the far right wing. Here are some examples of their conservative lunacy! Check out the conservative blogs.
We can’t afford to be asleep at the wheel on this one!
OTTAWA — In the United States, Thanksgiving approaches. The post-mortem of 2010 yields to the narrative of 2012, which likens Barack Obama to Jimmy Carter and Sarah Palin to Ronald Reagan.
Is this Sarah Palin’s moment or what? Her “reality” show bout Alaska draws a large audience, her flat-footed daughter Bristol survives on Dancing with the Stars, and on Tuesday Palin will release her second book, following the runaway success of her memoir, Going Rogue: An American Life.
