It cannot begin to dispel the immense stench of the rotting carcass that is Barack Obama’s government and Congress… but it’s a start, a bare start, or more correctly, a starting point.
The Conservatives are hitting the beach running, and it’s a good thing too. We have plenty of very hard work, and even harder choices to make, in the next two years. The run-up to 2012 has already started, with some some of the usual suspects named ‘considering’ possible runs for the presidency.
There’s no one out there so far that I’m really excited about, though there are some with whom I have some real reservations. I know Dee is busily ferreting out information on runners and possible runners, and we’ll talk about them from time to time.
I’m not going to fall for the Sarah Palin run gambit though. If she decides on a run, she would be a very formidable opponent for anyone the Marxists threw up there against her. She is simply the most exciting political figure of our time. She generates the same level of excitement that John Kennedy was able to command. The Marxists had better hope she doesn’t run. She may decide not to this time. She may decide she’s more powerful and flexible outside of a campaign, traveling the nation in support of Conservative candidates and issues.
I like Newt Gingrich… he’s a nice guy, he’s really bright too… but much too mired in the political past and far too willing to compromise on certain issues. He’s simply a big government Republican. He’s not one of the two I mentioned though… I’ve saved them for last.
Mitt Romney lost me when he championed a single-payer type health care system for the state of Massachusetts. He says he launched it with all good intentions and unscrupulous people came behind him and changed it in the state legislature. Duh! Sorry, Mitt.
The other one is Mike Huckabee. Once again, a nice guy but he’s not presidential material. If you question him closely enough, he’s dangerously soft on illegal aliens and how to deal with the millions already here. He’s simply not tough enough. He also raised taxes on Arkansans, something not likely to endear voters to him should he run.
It’s time to saddle up for the run to 2012 and the sunset of the Obama Marxist coup against the American Republic.
