    Obama is Not a Liar About Obamacare

    A lot has been made about Obama’s statements about if you like your plan you can keep it and you can have your choice of doctors. Rightwingers, who have no ability to discern subtlety, have viciously attacked our President’s veracity primarily because they don’t understand reality. So, let me clarify this for you Republican knuckle draggers: I really don’t see where Obama lied. By example, | Read More »

    Adios Herman and Good Effing Riddance!

    From the very first time I heard Herman Cain speak my BS meter pegged. Subsequently, nothing he said nor the way he said it gave me any confidence that there was any substance behind the grin. His 999 Plan was a bad economic joke and he invoked it like a magic spell. In an sense it was because a lot of people actually took it | Read More »

    An App to Tell You With Which Candidate You Agree the Most

    OK, just for fun but you do have to fess up. Me Newt 63% Perry 60% Mitt27%. Pretty much what I expected. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/republicans/8876878/How-should-I-vote-in-the-Republican-Primaries-2012.html

    In Response to Leon.

    The reason that I’ve chosen to use a diary to respond to Leon’s front page posting is that I believe that my comments encompass concepts that certainly need to be discussed on their own merits.  I believe that the gist of Leon’s position is that insufficient evidence has been presented to allow anyone to arrive at an objective conclusion as to the veracity of the | Read More »

    Cain Reminds Me of Jimmy Carter

    First, let me make myself clear, I have absolutely no interest in seeing Herman Cain get the nomination. He has shown me nothing but an inarticulate, flip-flopping neophyte who appears to be Romney’s “conservative” stalking horse. Were he to win the election, it would be his first. Anyone who has watched him over the last couple of weeks would have to be greatly concerned that | Read More »

    Are You a Fool?

    Here is what I want in a GOP nominee. 1. Proven ability to win elections in tough environments against worthy opponents and raise the money it takes to do that. 2. Executive decision making experience like that of a governor in a major, politically diverse state. 3. Proven conservative credentials both socially and fiscally. 4. Maturity and wisdom that comes from making mistakes and demonstrably | Read More »

    The Ten Plagues of OBAMAKANEN

    Well, I guess we can add earthquakes to the plagues that “Bad Luck Barry” has brought down on the US.  Gee, a 5.9 quake, that should be good to blame the bad economy on for a month or so. One usually has to be a Pharaoh to cause such devastation to one’s own Country. So, I think it is only fair I that list the | Read More »

    “You have killed us you arrogant bastard!”

    In the movie, “The Hunt for Red October”, the climax of the action occurs when a Russian nuclear submarine commander destroys his own submarine with his own torpedo that he fired at the submarine Red October. Just prior to impact, as his junior officer realized their impending doom, his last words to his commander were; “You have killed us you arrogant bastard!” I suspect that | Read More »

    Wherein Tbone Posits the 2012 Ticket.

    So the basic question that must be addressed is the one posed under the grinning picture of George W. Bush “Miss me yet?”. Surprisingly, according to various polls a lot of people do. In fact, when you consider that 10% of all such polling theoretically comes from black voters who are stubbornly clinging to their half-black hero because of his skin tone and another 20% | Read More »

    Palin, Romney and Huckabee to Appear at Joint Rally at Texas Stadium!

    Just kidding but consider this. Let’s say that it is true and that it was going to cost $20.00 to get in, $15.00 of which the attendee could designate to one of the three candidates. Now, consider that a new ABC News-Washington Post survey says that among Republicans and Republican leaning independents that the split is 21% Huckabee, 19% Palin and 17% Romney. So, the | Read More »
