Romney gathers power in the "Quickening" as Santorum suspends his campaign.

Now that Santorum has suspended his campaign Romney’s nomination is a lock.  Gingrich continues to delude himself, but when $500 checks from the campaign coffers bounce, you know the show is on life support.

I have many friends who hold out support for  Ron Paul.  Well, our society’s “kingmakers” have ignored him from the beginning.   As popular as Paul is that popularity is not enough to get him anywhere near a candidacy let alone the presidency.   I don’t know what role Paul could assume to push forward his truly constitutionally based policies.  How a man like Obama can ascend to the presidency while Paul is ignored demonstrates the bias and corruption within the two party old guard system.

Let’s remember that as powerful as the President is, we have a Supreme Court to consider and two houses of elected legislators  Just as the progressive/liberals have pushed their agenda incrementally for nearly a century, we must be prepared to do the same.

A second Obama term would lose the Supreme Court for a generation.   Surely in a second term he’ll appoint two justices.   Those appointments are for life.  This must not be allowed.

We must also continue to place Tea Party candidates into both the Senate and House of Representatives.  Place more elected representatives like Ron Paul.  This will be  a protracted tug of war.  The left NEVER gives up.  We must not either.

She’s charming and nice looking but she leaves me dissatisfied.

I saw part of Governor Palin’s interview with Matt Lauer on his morning program last week.  I can’t get over how unimpressed I was.  She did ok, but I never really sense any depth of understanding or perception in her comment.  Yes, she held her own against an interviewer who was obviously no fan or hers, but really, I think we need more than that from anyone who aspires to national leadership.

I for one am glad she is not in the race or even being considered for the VP post.  Maybe a few more years will season her into someone of depth.  We’ll see.

Sarah Palin, announcing her resignation as Gov...

An exciting choice, but not enough to seal the deal with the American electorate.

No doubt there is already a considerable amount of backroom squabbling concerning the who will carry the “lesser half” of the Republican ticket.

Recently Rubio, Florida’s junior Senator and Barber, the Governor of South Carolina have been mentioned.  It’s not too early for speculation, but speculation is all there is.

There is a lesson to learn about the VP pick that we can take from the last election cycle.  It matters, but not as much as some would like to hope.

When McCain picked Governor Palin from OBSCURITY to be his running mate there was a lot of high emotion!  Her conservative Bona Fides were hoped to be enough to bolster McCains lack of the same.

THEY WEREN”T.  The best part of Palin’s presences was the absolute fits she gave the official left and the left leaning press.  It WAS FUN watching them fall all over themselves to drag her down.  As strong as she was, McCain was just not enough.

So, the VP nominee is not really important.  Look, Clinton got elected with Gore and Bush 1 got elected with Dan Quayle.

Ideology aside, the most important aspect of our nominee will not be his running mate, but his willingness to ENGAGE THE ENEMY in a NO HOLDS BARRED contest for the most powerful office in the history of human kind.  Romney has demonstrated a willingness to destroy opponents on “his own team.”  If he’s our nominee, I believe he’ll be able to level the same intensity at the real enemy, Obama and his radical leftist agenda.

Anybody who believes that the continued pursuit of the nomination by Santorum and even Gingrich will somehow hurt the Republicans chances in the Presidential election is really just well,  WRONG.

Whoever our nominee is will be running against BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA.  Despite any hard feelings that may be generated by the primary process, there is no one who opposes Obama that will vote for him because of the nastiness in the primaries.

The only thing that will matter is that our candidate must be unrelenting and merciless in his “attack” on the President.  I hope that Romney or whomever can unflinchingly “beat up on” Obama.  McCain didn’t have the stomach for it.  We need someone who does.

In the past, political power was transferred by murder or war or violence of some sort.  These days, at least here in America we really just talk really, really awfully to our opponents.  It IS ugly, but it’s much better than blood in the streets!

Donald Trump enters the Oscar De LA Renta Fash...

The most colorful personage to appear on the political scene in decades is quite obviously Donald Trump.   The Donald has been making A LOT of noise recently about a run for the presidency and maybe more importantly, why the Obama presidency is failing.

I’ve never been a big fan of  “The Donald,” however, I find myself listening intently when he speaks of our relations with China, OPEC and the world at large.

Destroying freedom for over 100 years!

To no one’s surprise president Obama announced that he will run for reelection in 2012.  After nearly three years is there anyone who would deny that our president is a radical socialist?  I for one am convinced that he IS.

Here is an analysis by Glenn Beck of Obama’s own words which demonstrates the man’s ideology. (more…)


 

I HEART Newt, NOT!

In the article linked here:  http://blogs.ajc.com/political-insider-jim-galloway/2011/02/26/the-newt-gingrich-fan-dance/ It looks as though the former speaker is serious about a run at the presidency.

He won’t win against Obama.  He is damaged goods.

It could certainly feel like doomsday, if the Republicans can't field a great candidate.

It’s been a week (or more) since I posted here.  I’ve had a hard time focusing in on any of the salient issues before us and saying something that hasn’t already been said.

However, there is one chilling thought  that comes to mind OVER and OVER.   I believe Obama will win a second term. Despite his once falling approval ratings, and his recent loss of the House of Representatives and near loss of the Senate, I believe Obama is nearly unbeatable.

Here’s why.  The Republicans.

Yes, it’s early, but I haven’t seen one contender from the potential Republican field that makes me excited.  That’s a problem.

It’s likely that the Republicans will gain the Senate in the next election. I’m very happy about that.  However,  I for one don’t think the Republicans are particularly good when they have the trifecta of power.    Further, I think there are many voters who feel as I do.

The genius of our system, the American system, is the separation of powers.  I for one, after the last 2 decades, am very wary of any ONE party occupying the house, senate and white house.  No one seems to do it well.  So, I for one could live with another 4 years of Obama, as long as we keep the house and gain the Senate.  I’d be happy to be proved wrong.
