In the past several weeks I’ve seen at least three liberal columnists and several left-leaning newspapers distancing themselves from the President, if not criticizing him outright. I know the mainstream media is heavily invested in Mr. Obama. After all they’re responsible for creating him out of whole cloth and his own ego. If the President doesn’t get re-elected the media loses a great deal of credibility. They simply can’t do this because they’re going broke and retreating to the internet in an effort to stay in business.
If you haven’t heard yet, Richard Mourdock, a Tea Party Republican candidate for Senate, made a statement so heinous yesterday several people I know broke things after hearing him say it. Okay, so did I.
Mourdock said that women should be forced to carry their pregnancies to full term from a rape because said pregnancies are a “gift from God.” Let me tell you something, Rich. Can I call you Rich? My middle name, Jean, literally does mean “gift from God,” so you can feel free to use that one. But a rape, or a pregnancy resulting from rape—which accounts for at least 32,000 pregnancies a year, by the way—is no gift. Are you that stupid, or simply that cruel, Dick? Can I call you dick?
Thinking back to the Republican Convention of 2012, I still am enthralled by the presentation of “The Empty Chair” as presented by Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood. On literally a couple of minutes notice, without notes (or teleprompter in President Obama’s case), Mr. Eastwood gave an extemporaneous performance that was as entertaining as it was brilliant.
Clint is 82 years old and is still lean, straight and strong. He is also remarkably reminiscent of the parts he has portrayed in film for over 60 years. He comes across as a humble, friendly and common man who is nonetheless confident and easy to get along with. His performance also was testament to his intelligence, common sense and creativity.
I’ve written before about conservatives who praise slavery, but lately it seems like they’re just coming out of the woodwork! Do you think it has anything to do with, I don’t know, the fact that our president is black and that a whole lot of people are sickeningly not okay with that?
So here’s your handy dandy list of conservatives who not only think that slavery was just the best thing since Country Kitchen, but also deserve to hear from you about their comments.
Dick Cheney called in to a conservative talk radio program to comment on Joe Biden’s performance during the Vice President’s Debate. One of Mr. Cheney’s primary criticisms was the manic manner demonstrated by Vice President Cheney while Congressman Ryan was speaking. Biden laughed—at inappropriate time, when conversation about the dead Americans in Libya was being talked about—made bizarre faces, smiled scarily with a mouth lined with rows of sharp, dazzlingly white teeth. Biden made clownish, exaggerated gestures throughout his downtime and forcefully attempted to insert himself into Mr. Ryan’s time to speak.
The Presidential Election of 2012 is three weeks away. Republicans are ironclad in their belief that Obama will drive us off the cliff; economically as a nation and financially as a citizen while all the time hurtling us toward Socialism with the lure of unemployment benefits, welfare programs, food stamps and free hospital/health care. Sure, this encourages illegal immigrants to come to this country by offering them the same benefits as citizens. Welfare programs of all types, free education, driver licenses are already being given to illegal immigrants. Even the right to vote is being fought for by the administration.
It's been awhile. I guess I've been extremely busy as of late and haven't managed to get in some me time. Being the wife of Senator John McCain and a mother along with my chairperson duties at Hensley and Company among other things makes it pretty difficult. But I promise to post more.
The first of three Presidential Debates took place at the University of Denver recently. Two dynamics emerged the moment the President and Governor took the stage. Maybe what occurred was an anomaly that will be absent from the future debates. We’ll find that out over the next several weeks. Here are my general impressions of the debate.
When my brother passed away recently, I inherited a number of rifles, pistols, ammunition and other gear relating to firearms. I didn’t want the weapons and yet I didn’t want to sell them to just anyone—who could easily be a budding terrorist. After some research, I was stunned at how much the guns were worth. My neighbor attempted to convince me to attend a gun show and get top dollar for the guns. Again, I didn’t want to sell them to anyone who might use them in a crime.
I can’t tell you how to vote. I suspect a large number of us will vote for Barack Obama because we believe him to be a good President, one who has served our country in an honorable and decent way, who champions the public interest over special interests, who has wound down two wars, found and eliminated America’s public enemy number one, and who has delivered on his promise to reform the broken health care system, something no other politician has been able to do for the past 45 years.
