John McCain and Lindsey Graham’s Pathetic Definition of “Isolationism”
Well, John McCain and Lindsey Graham are at it again. Every neoconservatives favorite pair of Senators have subjected opponents of action in Libya and the future of Afghanistan as “isolationist”. I’ll address the ignorance of the neo conservatives regarding over extension of force in a future post, but right now they need to be called out for their pathetic defense of our current interventions. Let | Read More »
Why Is Drudge Linking To Alex Jones’s “Info Wars” Site?
As I normally do on a daily basis I visited the Drudge Report. On the left hand column there are three links regarding Texas Governor Rick Perry. The first link is this: National Journal: Perry Road Tests Stump Speech The second link is this: NBC NEWS:Perry: Stand Up and Stop Apolgizing The third link? Infowars.com.: Bilderberg Approved Perry Set To Become GOP Frontrunner This is apparently | Read More »
A Conservative Distaste For Political Pledges
So now the blogosphere is mulling Mitt Romney’s unwillingness to sign the Susan B Anthony pledge. Herman Cain will not sign it either. I have expressed doubts about Mitt Romney here: Mitt Romney is Not the Answer. I clearly am not a fan of Governor Romney even though he’s superior to President Obama and frankly stated I have strong if not cynical reservations about his | Read More »
Game On: Michelle Bachmann Is For Real
It is always quite amusing to hear the pundit class talk about the respective electability of the G.O.P. candidates for President. Sarah Palin is routinely ridiculed by the punditocracy largely because she’s not part of the club. Last evening’s debate was an intriguing forum with telling results. All of the candidates look good and no one made a fatal mistake. Here is my assessment of | Read More »
A Note To Newt: You Can’t Run For President On Cruisde Control
So, big news in the GOP broke earlier this evening when it was announced that several top campaign employees and consultants for Newt Gingrich’s Presidential campaign resigned.The names of those who resigned are not too important as far as I’m concerned because the act of resigning en masse indicates a tragically flawed candidate. The absurdity of this is that former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue who | Read More »
Anthony Weiner’s Lack of Conscience
Anthony Weiner finally came clean,but he’s not resigning. Yesterday’s press conference was excruciating.He held it because he got caught.If he hadn’t made the mistake of posting the picture he’d still be doing it. You don’t need to bite from an apple to know that men behaving badly is not unique in the annals of history.We just have so many impulsive avenues with which to express | Read More »
Mitt Romney Is Not the Answer
Yesterday, Mitt Romney announced he is a candidate for President. As I have never been a fan of Mr. Romney I had low expectations and as a result thought he did well. Mine was clearly a minority view as other reviews were underwhelming. Mitt Romney has been correctly identified as a political opportunist. Frankly,that doesn’t bother me as a healthy dose of cynicism requires me | Read More »
Sarah Palin At Bunker Hill Has Seen the White of Mitt Romney’s Eyes
“Don’t Fire Til You See the Whites Of Their Eyes” was the advice of General Israel Putnam to the men defending Bunker Hill. Today, as Mitt Romney was in New Hampshire declaring his bid for President, Sarah Palin summoned Putnam and placed Mitt Romney’s white eyes in her crosshairs. She sounds increasingly like a candidate for that same high office. Palin took a shot at | Read More »
George Will Goes Nuclear On Sarah Palin?
George Will has in the past demonstrated intellectual disdain for conservatives that he deems unrefined in advancing conservative principles. His assault on Sarah Palin today is over the top. Does George Will think Sarah Palin is untrustworthy of presiding over our nuclear arsenal? Why would he make this statement if only to imply that Palin is mentally unhinged and therefore unsuited for office? George Will | Read More »
EAT,DRINK and BE MERRY for OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD!
I’m trying to avoid those awful cliches that are often used by the "loyal opposition" when they find themselves in agreement with a President of the other party. It’s not easy, but I’ll cut to the quick. 1.) Like September 11,2001, May 1st, 2011 will be remembered by all of us. I was watching the Phillies-Mets game on ESPN and immediately lost interest. 2.)
