The Wisconsin recall effort against Scott Walker gets started in three weeks, and guess what, Dems may go after more Republican state senator!  The punchy Director of Communications of the WI Democratic Party is quite excited.

There was a massive earthquake in Turkey, with as many as 1000 possibly dead.  Israel has offered help, let’s see if Turkey accepts it.

Cain v. Perry; rumor is that Cain is target no. 1 for the Perry campaign, I guess the theory being that there can only be one not-Romney contender.  If they start going after each other, Newt benefits.

What else?

Update: Steve Forbes endorses Rick Perry.  Is this news?  I thought this already had happened, but maybe not in a formal way:

President Obama Boasts of Giving Money to Letter Writers from His Own Personal Stash

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTQFiizW39I

The music: Liar, Liar Pants on Fire

These videos are my therapy in the age of Obama.

I’d make them even if no one watched….Well, not really 😉

Personally I hate all the nastiness among the candidates. I think they oughta knock it off. I don’t even want to watch the debates or hear them diss each other.

Plus the whole “they stole my drums” thing is hilarious. I mean, think about it. Somebody vandalized/stole the drums that were making all the racket at OWS and then the fleabags wouldn’t dip into their $450,000 cash to buy new ones. Dissension among the ranks? Ha. How very tribal of them.

Plus it’s hilarious the way “Obama” has killed/disabled/droned so many Arabs. He tries to ingratiate himself with Arab countries with all this high falutin’ kissup language about how wrong America’s been and then supports killing them. Ha!

Assassination IS quite a foreign policy philosophy.

A white, southern governor with a rock in his past is going to start attacking the only black man in the GOP primary? The MSM is gonna love this…

    Says it’s a rumor. I wonder who started that rumor?

    retire05 in reply to WarEagle82. | October 23, 2011 at 10:32 pm

    A white, Southern governor with a rock in his past that was offensive so his family painted over it. Not to mention a white, Southern governor who served his nation in uniform admirably for seven years.

    Congratuations for falling for the left wing medias attempt to disparage a man who should not be disparaged.

      I reckon you don’t get sarcasm and you don’t understand how the MSM is going to spin this…

        retire05 in reply to WarEagle82. | October 23, 2011 at 11:12 pm

        I reckon I really don’t give a hairy rat’s patooty about the MSM. I know they are going to push their candidate, the same one they pushed in ’08. The very fact that the MSM has as much influence as it does shows how dumbed down our nation has become in the last 70 years. It’s depressing.

    Ummm, when I try to link to the “rumor” thingie, I get a yahoo page that shows me Stacy McCain’s website. Wonder why that is? Perhaps because McCain is so in the tank for Cain he can’t breath? Of course, Stacy McCain has all this information that he gets from sources he can’t reveal (professionalism and all). Yeah, right!

    The big question is why no mention of the fact that Romney bought a domain site in 2007 to go after John McCain but never used so now he is using it as a attack site on Perry. If Cain is such a threat, and doing so well in the polls, why is Romney going after Perry and not Cain?

      William A. Jacobson in reply to retire05. | October 23, 2011 at 11:02 pm

      Link fixed.

        So I was right. It’s Stacy McCain who wrote the article and who is also floating the “rumor.” Now, why would that be? Would it have anything to do with Stacy McCain following Herman Cain around like a 6 week old puppy, taking every chance he gets to bash the other candidates?

        Cain is making a big mistake thinking his poll numbers can carry him through Iowa. I heard it reported on Fox last week that Cain has no plans to go to Iowa until December. He is making the very same mistake Romney made about Iowa in 2007. Romney thought he had Iowa in the bag and campaigned in other states. Mike Huckabee took Iowa right out from underneath Romney’s nose.

        And if Stacy McCain wants to float rumors, he should man-up and give his sources.

          retire05 in reply to retire05. | October 23, 2011 at 11:30 pm

          So Stacy McCain spends paragraphs trying to make a claim about Team Perry but adds this caveat:

          “So it would be unfair to jump to the conclusion that Team Perry was responsible for that item, HOWEVER”

          Yeah, anyone want to tell me Stacy McCain is trying to be honest in his reporting?

          spartan in reply to retire05. | October 23, 2011 at 11:52 pm

          @retire05

          My guess? Team Cain is planting the story with McCain. Cain is getting a lot of deserved heat for his multiple faux pas; especially regarding abortion. McCain has tried the logical gymnastics to make Cain look not so bad. It could also be a preemptive strike to make sure Perry doesn’t take Cain to task for the faux pas.
          I still think Cain is going to falter and when he does, will endorse Romney. Cain endorsed Romney in 2008. Yet, Cain has not endorsed any local GA candidates. Cain has also said he would not want to be Perry’s VP. Yet, Perry is the meanie.

          The Forbes endorsement is a really big get for Perry. This should have been a ‘gimme’ for Cain with his 9-9-9 (9-0-9) Plan. I think Forbes believes either Cain lacks gravitas or is not taking his campaign seriously. Forbes has a very strong fiscal conservatism background. This endorsement should undercut Cain, as well as Romney.

Keeping in mind that Romney is likely the only one to gain from such a rumor.

Not that a nice, clean-cut boy like Romney would ever stoop to such race-baiting nastiness…

I am a bit nervous about how quiet the news is this weekend.

Suspicious? Oh, yeah.

No talk about Fast & Furious, Solyndra, other lies and scandals.

The distractions seem to be working…….

Ohio needs some serious attention. Issue 2, which is to uphold or repeal SB 5, is on the ballet this November. It’s Ohio’s collective bargaining law, and it’s not looking good. There’s ads all around the state about “standing with firefighters.” Polls are showing that repeal is imminent, but I am hoping there is a silent (politically incorrect) majority who will see this through. There is a debate this Tuesday on local news. We are so worried about the fallout in Wisconsin that there is not enough people noticing the more pressing battle in Ohio.

Here in Wisconsin, many of us are watching Ohio very closely. If the bad guys can pull it off in Ohio, they may have the momentum to pull it off here. I am very worried.

This whole idea of recalling elected officials because you don’t like their policies is a very ugly can of worms to open.

It is also part of the plan of the Left. They are in full on attack mode right now and expect it to continue. They are relentless.

Visited Occupy LA today.

Star Wars bar scene.

One guy tried to bum money off me … another approached me and struck up a conversation and was quite amiable until I told him I was a Republican … at which point he became rather surly. Really creepy atmosphere. Gave me the willies.

LukeHandCool (who felt exceedingly clean, sane, and well-adjusted by comparison).

    You are a brave man. I salute you.

    I did get a call about OWS in my town today: one guy standing next to the downtown Wells Fargo branch, holding a sign in each hand. Guess his buddy didn’t show up.

    Owen (who is avoiding Occupy Oakland like the plague)

      LukeHandCool in reply to Owen J. | October 24, 2011 at 12:48 pm

      Yeah, Occupy LA was a bit on the sparse side, too. They do make a lot of noise, though. From the drums to the creepy repeating in unison whatever drivel the speaker says.

      I would encourage average Americans to see for themselves how much the occupy events are like tea parties as MSM journalists are pretending.

      Go to one of these gatherings looking normal and being honest about your opinions if asked … and see how welcome/safe you feel.

Nice try Forbes, but your endorsement, in my world, just confirms to me that I have made the correct decision in opposing Perry. For the life of me, I just don’t understand what is such the attraction of this man. A former Demonrat who once gave Gore his endorsement and who has no problem using the power of government to “help” young girls participate in a government health initiative. No thanks Stevie! I am still sticking with Cain and a Cain/Gingrich ticket is beginning to look real, real good the longer this primary season goes on. My only disappointment with the primary season thus far is that I wish Bachmann could have kept her momentum going following her strong showing in Iowa.

    “A former Democrat who once gave Gore his endorsement”

    Not withstanding the fact that Ronald Reagan was once a Democrat (for longer than Perry was) I am sure you can provide us with links to articles where Perry was quoted giving Al Gore his endorsement. Since I have lived in Texas the entire time Rick Perry has held public office, and have never seen such an article, I would be interested in reading them.

    “and who has no problem using the power of the government to “help” young girls participate in a government health initiative.”

    Would you be talking about Rick Perry, or Michele Bachmannn who was a state representative when Minnesota passed the “no opt-out” mandate for the vaccine for Hepititus B? Oh, you don’t know about the Hep B vaccine? Well, it is required in Minnesota for kids to enter school. Hep B is basically a s*xually transmitted disease, and unlike measels, not contracted by casual contact. And ironically, the Hep B vaccine, according to records of the CDC, has a higher rate of adverse side effects than Gardasil does. Fancy that.

    Or maybe you are unaware that Perry’s EO, which did offer a simply opt-out for parents (the form was to be put on-line) was to force insurance companies to pay the almost $400 in cost for the three shot series? That would be unlike the Palin initiative which laid the burden on taxpayers in ALL 50 states:

    June 4, 2007

    (Juneau, Alaska) The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services announced today that an increase in federal funding will make it possible for ALL Alaska girls ages 9 through 18 to receive Gardasil, the vaccine to prevent cervical cancer, AT NO COST.”

    Unlike Alaska, which used federal taxpayer dollars to provide the vaccine, the Texas “health initiative” placed the burden of cost on insurance companies.

    You are certainly free to support whatever candidate you choose, you are not entitled to your own twist of the facts. As conservatives, one of our biggest complaints about Obama has been that he had no record to run on (in 2008) yet people placed their hope on him anyway. Seems you are doing the same, only this time on a guy who has an (R) behind his name.

That’s my problem with Cain. He talks a good talk…until lately, that is. He has no record except what he says he will do. We elected an unknown in 2008 and that was a disaster. Let’s not do it again. As I have said before politicians will tell you whatever you want to hear. Vote for the candidate’s record. If he/she doesn’t have one, don’t vote for them.

I have read posters saying Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease. It is that but it is also a blood and bodily fluid transmitted disease. I haveno idea why Minnesota would reqire these shots for all school children. It is not likely that these children would come up against someone with Hepatitis B in the classroom.

I wonder why a republican bothers to run in Wisconsin. If they win the dims will just recall them. I would think this leaves candidates antsy about their future after they have spent mucho money to get elected. It is as if the dims don’t win the first time, they get to try again.

If I was Israel, I wouldn’t bother to offer. Let them sink.

I wasn’t aware that candidates pick only one rival to go after. I thought they went after all of them. We need to be careful about the articles the MSM puts out. Always remember they want us to do a lot of infighting and they will egg us on if they can. They are the enemy, not the rival candidates.

I’m glad Forbes endorsed Perry. Perry is my guy if I can’t have Palin.
