The leader we need: Mitt Romney

June 2, 2009

Possibly the “powers that were” knew in 2008 that George Soros has so contaminated the political landscape with his hatred of George Bush and all things conservative — Jesus Christ carrying a cross could not have won the Presidency. 

Here, however, is a man who CAN defeat Barack Obama — head to head, with or without a teleprompter, in an open debate on issues relevant to real-time USA …..

HopeyChange #3: Mitt for Health Czar?

February 4, 2009

UPDATE: (see spending plan)

Update II: (HopeyChange takes a break)

okokokok — it’s far fetched, but when it comes to what’s currently transpired in the predicted melt-down of  the HopeyChange Revival on Pennsylvania Avenue — why not Mitt Romney for Health Czar?

He probably wouldn’t accept a salary and he’s already set up (not that his successor maintained it) a model program in Massachusetts. 

Oh well.  At least I spelled Massachusetts correctly.

Meanwhile — rather than showing leadership, HopeyChange appears to be hoping that the Senate will change his hodge-podge political-payback-palooza Pelosi-pork-packed spending bill.    It’s time to do more than send the minions to ride herd on Congress — you gotta cowboy-up yourself, Hopey!!  (See more below.)

Only when some group (such as 70% of voters or the EU or Canada or Russian or a few South American countries) complain about part(s) of the bill does HopeyChange “agree” …. So where is the leadership, Hopey?

This is YOUR save-the-US-and-later-the-world spending bill, Hopey!!

Geeeeze, Hopey!  Do something besides spewing informal rhetoric with an adoring Matt L, hosting fancy meals and cocktail parties, inviting a few buds in for a Super Bowl party or letting your staff tell us how you like the thermostat high while folks in the midwest are huddled in shelters or dying in a snow storm.   Do something, Hopey.   Take a stand — don’t just send your minions to do your work. 

Are we watching on-the job-training in action?  Are we already seeing signs of ole wimpy Jimmy the implausible peace-placater?  

Other nations are  already rolling their collective eye over the use of (**a MUST read**) Clinton’s ineffective 80’s scheme team to address  twenty-first century issues.   

The prospects are beginning to look as gloomy as you’re always portraying them, Hopey …. 

And folks around the world are lining up to watch HopeyChange melt-down.

Here.  Read it all for yourselves.

** Remember when HopeyChange told voters in the midwest he would stop the “export” of US jobs — then secretly sent a minion to Canada to tell them NOT to believe what Hopey was saying?  Well it’s backfiring on ole Hopey  and he’s changing his tune

Canada (already in trade negotiations with the EU and the U. S.’s favorite trade partner), Russia, China and the EU have expressed serious concerns about the “buy American clause in the Spending bill — with the EU warning of potential trade wars if Hopey doesn’t drop the “buy American” clause ….  

Obama’s “buy American” campaign slogan will continue to haunt him.

**  India has warned US President Barack Obama that he risks “barking up the wrong tree” if he seeks to broker a settlement between Pakistan and India over the disputed territory of Kashmir.

MK Narayanan, India’s national security advisor, said that the new US administration was in danger of dredging up out of date Clinton administration-era strategies in a bid to bring about improved ties between the two nuclear armed neighbours.

**  Russia is announcing that the US will lose an Asian air base that is critical to supplying troops in Afghanistan …. hmmmm …. Reckon Russia still remembers how we supported the Taliban when they fought (and defeated) Russia?  

And this scenario is not without prior predictions ….

Careful, Hopey:  Russia may force your hand on arms reduction and defense systems in Eastern Europe.  Plus they know where the bodies are buried and they own the gas lines that heat those EU homes …

**  A question of ethics, subtitled: How to Affirm the Chicago Way is the route to the White House and to other Democrat groups.  While the world is watching.  

**  Is this why the Obama’s send their kids to private school?

“First lady Michelle Obama set out Monday on a listening tour through the federal bureaucracy, stopping first at the Department of Education to thank employees for their service and rally them for the tough work ahead,” the Associated Press. While at the Education Department, Mrs. Obama committed this howler:

In thanking the workers, she told them: “I am a product of your work.”

“I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the public schools that nurtured me and helped me along,” said Mrs. Obama, a Chicago native who attended its public schools as a child.

Michelle Obama was born in January 1964. The Department of Education began operation in May 1980, when Mrs. Obama was a 16-year-old high school junior. Apparently she is unaware that there were public schools before there was a federal Department of Education–though we suppose that’s evidence that the department does not bear all the blame for the schools’ going downhill.

**  About that “urgent” spending bill ….

$2 million for Las Vegas neon signs???

More Pelosi-pork-pie-in-the-sky  (This woman needs to be removed.  fast.  God-forbid anything should ever happen to Obama.  Or Biden.)

“Shovel ready” spending???  Only if the Senate is “scissor ready” ….

Coburn:  Plan is “morally reprehensible” ….

A Frisbee golf course????

UPDATE:  Sen. DeMint points out that the spending bill excludes monies for schools, facilities or organizations associated with faith-based or religious programs:

“Grants awarded under this section shall be for the purpose of modernizing, renovating, and repairing institution of higher education facilities that are primarily used for instruction and research”

“Funds may not be used for the “modernization, renovation, or repair of facilities–(i) used for sectarian instruction, religious worship, or a school or department of divinity; or (ii) in which a substantial portion of the functions of the facilities are subsumed in a religious mission.”

**  And on the China front:   predictions and contradictions

**  From another Obama think-tank:  How to get around Congress to write treaties …. Another Clinton maneuver, now less ….

**  More on what the MSM won’t be reporting about those Fannie Mae files and the immigrant worker who tried to destroy them …. 

**  …. just watched Tim Geithner speak (with THE ONE at his elbow) about some policy for bail out recipients …. couldn’t concentrate on what he was saying because all I could “see” on the screen was a man who wrote off camp fees for his kids as business deductions.  The man has to go.   He was knee-deep in the original bail out debacle — why’s he still here???

** HopeyChange take a break:  And  Tammy Bruce pens a perfect tag line:

[A tough day? The guy has been the president for 14 whole days and he needs a break? What happened to that “flinty Chicago toughness” he was requiring of DC schoolchildren a week ago?]

On the rockiest day of his young administration, President Barack Obama did what surely made him happy for a while.

He left.

With little notice, the president and first lady Michelle Obama bolted the gated compound of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in their tank of a limousine on Tuesday. They ended up at a Washington public school, greeted by children who could not care less about the collapse of a Cabinet secretary nomination.

“We were just tired of being in the White House,” the president candidly told the gleeful second-graders at Capital City Public Charter School.

Tired of being in the White House after two weeks. Priceless. According to the Barkey-Be-Gone Meter, he still has 1446 whole days to go before we kick him out. I suppose this is the presidential version of voting ‘Present”? So let’s see: Iran has launched a satellite, Russia is having riots, France is having riots, people in Kentucky are still freezing to death, the Sri Lankan war is escalating, he’s threatened with a trade war by the EU because of crap in his Crap Sandwich, the Taliban is still attacking in Afghanistan, Islamic “pirates” are still hijacking ships and kidnapping people, our economy is still tanking mostly because of Barkey talking it down for a year, and he decides to go to a school to read to 2nd graders?

The kids did learn something, however, from his presence: what an arrogant and weak a**hole looks like.

The GOP: Guardians of Palimony

January 31, 2008

No longer the “Grand Old Party,” the GOP has now deserted its heritage to become the Guardians of Palimony. 

Palimony:  Making payment to someone to whom you have no legal affiliation.

Example: Republican party leaders endorsing John McCain — for whom there is no evidence that he IS a Republican.

Here’s McCain: Biting the (free market) hand that feeds you …. flaunting “bipartisanship” as a means of achieving less-than-conservative goals …. a “slash-and-burn” mentality to confront those who dare to think differently or challenge him …. declaring his lack of support for Judge Alito … resorting to “old Washington” political lies and attacks to “win” his point ….

For all that ails our nation, I see John McCain as part of the problem.  IMO — he will never rally the core-constituents needed to prevent Bill Clinton’s 3rd and 4th terms.  Never.  No matter how many of the old guard rally around him.  Never.

The GOP; the Grand Old Party; the Guardians of Palimony.

John McCain as a patriot?  Pfffffth.  The man is a survivor.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.

I have this eerie, sickening feeling that GOP party bosses have already decided that John McCain’s longevity has somehow  “earned” him the nominee mantle. 

To think that the future of our party and the fate of this nation are to be represented by a cantankerous, mean-spirited old man whose cancer-bloated skin cannot hide the malice that eats from within ….

I will continue to support Mitt Romney.   If my fellow-conservatives truly care about the future of this nation — so will they.

And that — if McCain is our party nominee — is my concession speech to the Republican Party.

A party of hicks, hayseeds, rednecks and Thomas Sowell

January 20, 2008

Main stream media is becoming more overt in suggesting how and what they want conservatives voters to think ….  Their message is either direct or by slant or by subtle undertone.  It’s as if they really believe that conservatives are either “hicks, hayseeds or rednecks.”  Oh, yeah — and religious fanatics.

The media alternately portrays the race for the Republican ticket as either a crusade — a battle of the Christian right against the less-than-right Christians/non-Christians — or as a subtle display of their own religious bigotry and hypocrisy.

They mock Mike Huckabee and his double-wide (pun), double-standards. 

[But then, anyone to the left of Chuck Norris mocks the Huckster.]

They subliminally tell us that Romney’s wealth and success as a governor and entrepreneur are directly related to his Mormonism.   (Which, according to Mike Huckabee and other bigots, is a cult.)

They promote candidates who share their views and either ignore or ridicule those who don’t.   Examples: McCain on his Immigration policy, Hillary on her claims of experience, Obama on the meaning of the title of his book. 

Hicks, hayseeds and rednecks.  And religious fanatics. 

Brings to mind Thomas Sowell’s Random Thoughts:  

I can’t get as fiercely involved as some other people do in controversies about the origins of human life on earth. I wasn’t there.


One of the painful signs of years of dumbed-down education is how many people are unable to make a coherent argument. They can vent their emotions, question other people’s motives, make bold assertions, repeat slogans— anything except reason.
Barack Obama is the newest face on the political scene, expressing some of the oldest notions. Virtually everything he says is vintage 1960s rhetoric, as if he has learned nothing from the many disasters that 1960s notions have led to in the decades since then.
People who lament the small percentages of women in some high-end jobs seem unaware that top jobs often involve 70 or 80 hours of work per week. A mother may work that many hours at home taking care of a family, without adding the same number of hours at the office.


A recent study showed the median income of major corporate CEOs to be about $8 million a year. That’s less than a third of what Alex Rodriguez earns and less than one-thirtieth of what Oprah Winfrey makes. But no one is denouncing them for “greed.”


It is amazing how many people who want us to get out of Iraq want us to go into Darfur.

A joke says that a poll was taken in California, asking if people thought illegal immigration was a serious problem. The results showed that 29 percent said, “Yes, there is a serious problem.” But 71 percent said, “No es una problema seriosa.”


People who refuse to face the reality of hard choices are forever coming up with some clever “third way”— often leading to worse disasters than either of the hard choices.


Sometimes it looks as if the Democrats are out to win at all costs, while the Republicans are out to compromise at all costs.
Although I am ready to defend what I have said, many people expect me to defend what others have attributed to me.

A reader says that Connecticut’s “Three Strikes” law is so weak that it is more like “30 strikes and we’ll think about it while you strike again.”


Wise people created civilization over the centuries and clever people are dismantling it today. You can see it happening just by channel surfing on TV or hear it in rap music or read it in the pompous nonsense of academics and judges.
Tennis star James Blake never seems to be relaxed during a match. Maybe he would be ranked even higher if he could relax. Most sports require some combination of concentration and relaxation— and too much of either is a big handicap.


Many on the political left are so entranced by the beauty of their vision that they cannot see the ugly reality they are creating in the real world.
With all the old movie favorites being shown again and again on television, it is remarkable that the old movie classic “Alfie” is seldom shown. Could it be fear that the scene where cold-blooded Alfie breaks down and cries at the sight of an aborted baby is something that would unleash the furies of the feminazis?


It is amazing how many people see no problem with having pay levels determined according to what third parties would like to see, instead of according to supply and demand.
One of the great non sequiturs of the left is that, if the free market doesn’t work perfectly, then it doesn’t work at all— and the government should step in.
Despite people who speak glibly of “earlier and simpler times,” all that makes earlier times seem simpler is our ignorance of their complexities.
We all believe that people are innocent until proven guilty. Some on the left believe that they are innocent even after being proven guilty.
Chutzpah department: When disbarred former D.A. Michael Nifong mailed his Bar card back to his state Bar Association, he included a note decrying “the fundamental unfairness” with which the Bar had treated him. This from a man who was ready to ruin three lives and polarize a community, in order to win an election.


“Fundamental fairness?”    Nifong was a democrat, wasn’t he?   And defended by the main stream media, as I recall ….
