Another Debate… Obama gains a point…

Another Debate… Obama gains a point…

Well since the GOP hopefuls can’t seem to understand WHO the real enemy is, tonight will be another victory for Obama. Yeah that’s some serious cynicism.

Romney the front runner who I will be FORCED to vote for in the general election, will be on the defensive. Newt, who I would feel a LITTLE bit better about having to vote for in the general election will be throwing some bombs at Mitt, Santorum and Paul. Paul, who I WILL NOT VOTE FOR if he is the the GOP nominee, will also be throwing bombs at Mitt, Newt and Santorum. We will hear all about how Newt, Mitt and Santorum are less than conservative and how ALL of them are not as conservative as Ron Paul.

Newt will take on Mitt’s record, Mitt will take on Newt’s record, Santorum will take on Newt and Mitt’s record and Paul will claim they are all just status quo..

Perry? Well, I think he could turn heads and come out real good tonight if he does what I’ve said they all should be doing. Comparing their record against Obama’s record. Highlighting the differences between them and Obama, Voicing their ALTERNATIVE plan for America rather than attacking each other.

The GOP faithful have a real problem in 2012. Once these clowns get done abusing themselves, there’s going to be a rude awakening for them. Abusing your competitor with cheap shots and untruths is not going to garner you the supporters of that candidate in the general election. Let me tell you this. I’ll vote 3rd party before I vote for Paul and that’s because of his supporters and his attack ads he’s ran against the others. And if Mitt Romney doesn’t stop lying in his attack ads I’ll change my mind on voting day.

I’m sick of the B.S. ALREADY. We’re going to hear enough LIES in the general election the REPUBLICAN primaries should be a much more civil affair. The lies and stretches of the truth to make a point tells me YOU WANT THE JOB too bad.

As I’ve said before. We the people have a chance to change the country back to the principles it was founded upon. We can’t afford Obama for another term. We the people DO NOT HAVE THE BEST MAN/WOMAN for the job running this year. The best we have in my opinion is Newt Gingrich or Rick Perry. Newt would do well to pick Rick Perry as VP or flip it. Perry could handle himself against Biden. Newt can handle himself against Insane Obama. Newt has done things that pisses conservatives off. But one thing nobody understands is HE GOT THINGS DONE. He’s also ran the most positive campaign of the bunch.

Santorum? Yeah his jobs record is abysmal and it makes Obama look like Reagan.

Paul? 14-464-1 You know what that is right?

First let’s see just how long Ron Paul has been in congress for his latest stint. Currently Ron Paul is serving his 8th term as a Representative
from Texas, a total of 14 years.

In total, he has sponsored 464 bills

105th Congress – 32 Bills Sponsored by Ron Paul

106th Congress – 51 Bills Sponsored by Ron Paul

107th Congress – 64 Bills Sponsored by Ron Paul

108th Congress – 68 Bills Sponsored by Ron Paul

109th Congress – 71 Bills Sponsored by Ron Paul

110th Congress – 70 Bills Sponsored by Ron Paul

111th Congress – 61 Bills Sponsored by Ron Paul

112th Congress – 47 Bills Sponsored by Ron Paul

Now to see how successful he was with all these bill he sponsored and introduced. Let’s look at how many bills he has sponsored have been passed and
enacted into law.

105th Congress – 0 Bills Passed by Ron Paul

106th Congress – 0 Bills Passed by Ron Paul

107th Congress – 0 Bills Passed by Ron Paul

108th Congress – 0 Bills Passed by Ron Paul

109th Congress – 0 Bills Passed by Ron Paul

110th Congress – 0 Bills Passed by Ron Paul

111th Congress – 1 Bill Passed by Ron Paul

112th Congress – 0 Bills Passed by Ron Paul

22 (14 on the current stint) years in congress, 464 bills sponsored, 1 sponsored bill passed… Leadership? not hardly. What was that ONE bill he sponsored that passed? Oh it was to donate some land for historical reasons in his home state…

That my friends is the facts. The entire GOP is about to hand the nation over to Obama on a silver platter. IF the next couple months the “Also rans” don’t start getting out of the race we’re going to be splintered and it’s going to be Obama FORE MORE!

Get your heads out GOP and let’s win this thing.

Republican Debate recap.

Republican Debate recap.

I watched the CNN Debate from start to finish. The debate was on foreign policy. There’s two most important issues to me when it comes to whom I support. The economy and foreign policy. This is the main reason I’m supporting ANYONE who is NOT Obama.

The debate started with Wolf Blitzer doing what CNN/MSNBC and the left leaning networks want. Get them fighting amongst themselves. Wolf Succeeded in his quest in some measure.

The question was the “Would you continue the patriot act”

Newt did a bit of lecturing on the difference between criminal law and the rules of war. A point I can agree with.

Then it went to Ron Paul. Paul basically said the patriot act takes away from our liberty. (I’m still waiting for the example of a person who’s rights were stomped on under the act)He said if we give up liberty for security we’ll have neither. Good point in context of a different world without a ruthless enemy who has no state. Ron Paul brought up Tim McVeigh as an example (he did it twice) and said we handled that right… What???

Newt answered it well. He said Tim McVeigh succeeded in his quest to KILL AMERICANS. And he mentioned that he’d rather have the tools in place to stop the murder than to only have tools to catch the murderer… I am on Newt’s page here. We can refine the act if needed, but one of the reasons 9/11 was successful is there was no tools available to stop it. FACT.

The rest of the debate was pretty uneventful as far as I’m concerned. Newt kind of surprised me with a candid answer about illegal immigrants who’ve been here for 25 years. And he made an argument for it that is hard to disagree with. In principle I’d love to see them all deported RIGHT NOW, but in practice I think it would be near impossible to do.

Ron Paul had some moments on stage that he just rambled and peppered his comments as he does all the time with it’s our fault and unnecessary wars, and legalize drugs to stop the killings… This is where I think I’ve nailed my problem with Ron Paul.

Ron has great hindsight. He knows exactly what should have been done on everything instead of what was done. I wonder though if he’d be as quick to bring our troops home if images of dead, butchered kids/women started showing up on TV here. I also wonder if we need someone who would veto everything that was not “Within the constitution” as he sees it. Any budget that included taxes, medicare, medicaid, welfare, and whatever would get squashed under a Paul POTUS. He’d wield a veto pen like nobody’s business which may not be bad in principle but bad in practice.

We’re seeing a POTUS who has shut down congress now, why would a Paul POTUS be a better move?

Newt schooling the masses…

Newt schooling the masses…

Well, I am really shocked. I’m about to say something I thought I’d never say again. Newt Gingrich is the best we got right now. Newt maybe the best hope we have of turning this country around. Somebody slap me!

I have stayed away from NEGATIVELY opining on ANY Republican candidate and to that end I will stay on task.

Newt was on a panel last night in Iowa (The family focus something or other) He was with all the other candidates (Except Romney) I came home last night and watched the replay on the only place I could find it, at RonPaul.com.

This was a stage that favored Santorum and Bachmann. And they both did extremely well. Cain and Perry also did well. Ron Paul… Well, he had a few supporters there. But Newt proved he’s a man among boys last night. I am the epitome of undecided. I’m an independent voter in the truest sense. IF I thought Obama was the best man, I’d vote for him. (Cough, cough, hack, sneeze)

There were the religious questions, and all did fairly well. The meat of the night was when Newt was asked “where have you failed” and he went on a long explanation, without mentioning each failure by name. He told the story masterly and vaguely and won some hearts and minds with the explanation.

Now the attack dogs are coming out on Newt. The attack dogs have sharpened their teeth on a few very young bucks who were crippled by their inexperience. Newt is an old buck who has been through this before. Newt as is evident by last nights event, has LEARNED a lot from the past. The attack dogs need to take heed. They are messing with someone who is very intelligent and extremely ruthless when called to action. To me, those two qualities alone set him apart from EVERYONE else.

Lets build the perfect GOP 2012 Candidate.

Lets build the perfect GOP 2012 Candidate.

Since I’m seriously unhappy about the current field of the GOP Presidential race. I thought I’d take a shot and finding GOOD things about them and trying to mold a perfect candidate.

Let’s start with Mitt Romney: His best assets are he’s well known, his experience and his appearance.

Newt Gingrich: Um, well he’s very well known. He’s also got a lot of connections in the beltway.

Ron Paul: His fiscal discipline is pretty much unrivaled in his votes, his disgust for the fed.

Herman Cain: His business sense, his stance on Israel, his newness.

Tim Pawlenty: His experience, his record, his stance on Abortion.

Gary Johnson: Um… Well.. There’s….Um… Whew. Can’t find much positive there.

Tom Miller: Well he’s a career flight attendant, and he wants small government.

Rick Santorum: He’s a good speaker, seems to be pretty articulate and knows the issues.

For shits and giggles lets throw in some “Potential” candidates:

Michelle Bachman: A woman, a staunch conservative, fiscal hawk and pro Israel.

John Bolton: Experienced in REAL WORLD affairs, tough on anti-Israel opponents

Paul Ryan: Fiscally superior to ALL in the running right now. Smart and articulate.

Sarah Palin: Female, HOT, Very pro-military, very pro-Israel, pro-second Amendment, Pro Hunting.

Rick Perry: Pro 2nd Amendment, Good record running Texas, is a Texan.

Now lets build the perfect candidate:

The perfect candidate would have ALL the best parts of the above with NONE of the baggage or record of idiocy that some of these have.

The perfect candidate would be:

A very hot, well known, Jewish black woman gynecologist who ran her own business, sports  a gray mustache and perfect black hair, was a very articulate speaker, against abortion, was pro-second Amendment, was born in Texas, hunted big game, traveled the world,  and had several connections in DC…

Needless to say that is not going to happen so the best we can hope for is the one person I left off the list. Allen West.

One things for sure, if we wait for the perfect conservative candidate we’ll be always waiting. IF we don’t pick a decent one Obama will get 4 more years to destroy 200 years worth of progress…. 3rd world nation status is assured if Obama gets another term.
