Why I Support the Nomination of Jeb Bush.
After reviewing the other available candidates and carefully weighing their qualifications, leadership ability, character, background, experience and philosophy, I have arrived at the conclusion that Jeb is far and away more qualified than any of them. There are those who say that a major drawback to Jeb is that he would be a continuation of the Bush Dynasty. However, his probable major opponent, Hillary Clinton, | Read More »
What Do You Think They Died For?
On this Veterans Day I want each of you to ask yourself that simple question and it is a question that really should be asked of every American who inhabits our Country. Since the first 8 men were killed on Lexington Green, the men and women of what is now known as the United States have been dying and suffering around the world. Our leaders, | Read More »
Rick Perry Indicted.
OK, so this is going to be a very short diary because I am not commenting on the facts of Perry’s case. What I am commenting on is that our judicial system is rife with prosecutorial and law enforcement misconduct which is eroding the confidence of right thinking citizens in our whole legal justice system. When I say right thinking I am referencing that segment | Read More »
So This is What it Would Look Like
For as long as I can remember, and I probably can remember longer than most of you, one of the standard opening gambits in discussions about the exceptionalism of the United States from the Right has been, “What would the World be like without the United States?”. Often, the Left would respond under the theme of “We can’t be the World’s policeman”. Up until now, | Read More »
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 »
