Open (Non-Cain news only)

Open (Non-Cain news only)

I really don’t want this to turn into one of those foul-mouthed blogs, but this is pushing me to the limit:

Asked if the country’s consistently high unemployment rate made him vulnerable in the upcoming 2012 election, Obama insisted “the least of my concerns at the moment is the politics of a year from now.

Are you kidding me?  This guy has been focused on almost nothing but the 2012 election since the day he took office.  That’s an overstatement.  He’s also been focused on turning us into Greece.

Newt apparently gave a rip-roaring speech in Iowa tonight, got the only standing ovation.  Will post the video if I find it.

What else?

Updates:  Still no video but here’s the assessment of the Iowa GOP Reagan Dinner from Caffeinated Thoughts (an Iowa blog) which live-blogged it:

Mingling around the crowd talking to people… the consensus is Gingrich impressed a lot of people.  There were a few here tonight who decided they were going to support him.  The second name I heard a lot of was Santorum.  I agree with that assessment, I think Gingrich and Santorum had the most substance to their speeches.  Bachmann’s was ok.  Perry’s was fine, but he just didn’t seem to connect with the crowd as much.  Nobody who isn’t already on board with Ron Paul was impressed with him tonight.

Hey Prof. please find some coverage of Newt’s speech that you mentioned because haven’t heard anything else about it tonight.

Cheers, and ever onward to November 6, 2012. Here’s to the USA then finally doing aa victory dance on overturning the disaster Obama’s been trying to lay onto our country.

I think Newt just poked obama in the eye ….hard

And for other fun, Paki9stan is driving their nukes around in panel vans:

We’re all going to die. Isn’t that lovely?

There appears to be a problem with your video link, at least in FireFox.

Do I hear muted signals of a lingering and peculiar bro-mance with Newt? The man lying about everything. Just ask his two ex wives!

Newt is NOT the the answer to the conservative vision for America…

    Fixed the video, I hope.

    Our side is doing it’s best to ruin our candidates. Yesterday I heard that the social conservatives were focused on preventing Newt’s rise because of his three marriages.

    Thanks for confirming that.

    By the time our side is done trashing our candidates, Obama will have a cake walk to a second term.

      TeaPartyPatriot4ever in reply to MaggotAtBroadAndWall. | November 5, 2011 at 9:25 am

      Yep, I pretty much agree with you there..

      Newt has ruined Newt. He supported left-wing Scozafava in NY-23, he sat on that couch with San Fran Nan, he failed to support real conservatives in the 2010 Senate races, he bad-mouthed Paul Ryan and his budget plan. The list goes on and on and on.

      If you believe Newt’s recent serial fabrications and ignore all other evidence that points to his true nature that is your choice. Just remember that old saying, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me…”

      Newt is not the answer to a conservative vision for America.

Yes, yes, yes. It’s so thick, you can walk on it.

it’s going to be pretty difficult for Obama to lose unless the Republicans manage to find a candidate who has their united and enthusiastic support (which pretty much excludes Romney)

and who also isn’t far to the right of the independent moderate voters of the country.

that’s about all the rest of the bunch.

If Newt were only two feet taller … all would be well.

LukeHandCool (whose mother rode in an elevator with Jane Wyman once … and on a couple of occasions Luke’s mom remarked that she remembered that Ms. Wyman’s ankles were almost as thick as her calves).

2008: Greek columns
2011: Greek debt

I have a list starting from least likely to vote for:

(1) President Obama
(2) Mitt Romney
(3) Jon Huntsman
(4) Ron Paul
(5) Newt Gingrich
(6) Gary Johnson
(7)…

It’s just easier to organize it this way at this juncture. Of course, this means by default I support the nominee.

Gingrich has some of the same inherent problems that Mitt Romney does. I just think Newt has the following problems:

(1) He enjoys his own ideas too much, likes to hear himself talk;

(2) While I don’t begrudge people spending their money, I perceive Newt and his wife like to spend their money loudly;

(3) An opportunist who comes across as phony. Classic case was the famous coach video with Nancy Pelosi pitching climate change. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qi6n_-wB154
I might add, the sudden enthusiasm for a few of Gov. Palin’s ideas just at a time when the candidate could use a Palin bounce. For example, don’t recall him being overtly supportive of Gov. Palin the last election cycle.

“I’m worried about putting people back to work right now, because those folks are hurting and the U.S. economy is underperforming,” he said. [In between golf swings.]

It seems Newt has been making progress. I think I could support him simply to see him mop the floor with Obama in the debates.

Clearly, Newt has extensive knowledge of our history and he does have a record of accomplishment. To see the 9th circuit court abolished would be a great step towards reclaiming America.

Let me say this. I am a fan of Herman Cain and have been actively supporting his candidacy for President of the United States, but I am realistic and see flaws in his candidacy, significant ones and the more I see, the more concerned I become. I will say though, that I would happily support Newt Gingrich. He has demonstrated himself as a serious candidate. He seems to carry himself above the fray. Somehow looking down on the typical political posturing that is taking place below him.

At this point part of me is hoping that Cain implodes as I believe that Gingrich will be the obvious benefactor of the fall.

Perhaps I should instead be hoping for a Cain/Gingrich ticket. It would be formidable, I think.

Re: Video of the Day.

Yes, they said “Google.”

And if you play the vinyl backwards you’ll hear, “I buried Steve Jobs.”

Is Newt running for the office of America’s husband, or is he trying to convince the voters that he might be more competent and conservative than Barack Obama (the Communist)? Because I’m looking for the latter.

Look at what we have in the Republican Party Presidential field. It doesn’t look all that good, does it.. in fact, it stinks.. this is how bad politics and politicians have come down to.. a choice between pretentious conservative Crony Capitalist RINO’s, inexperienced newcomers, Newt.. which is why the Republican Party field of prospective Presidential candidates, let alone in the Republican Party as a whole, is in such bad shape.. Just look at who we have leading Congress.. Need I say more..

Compared to the rest of the Republican Party field, even though Newt is no Ronald Reagan, he is about as close as we are going to get to Ronald Reagan.. and as for Huntsman and Santorum goes, only time will tell if the voters take to them or not.. I believe not.. as they seem to be on the bottom tier of acceptability.. I will not say electability, as that word is a used by people for political propaganda, to destroy someone in the eyes of the voting public.. and has no truth to it, as in politics, anything and everything is can happen, at any time..
 
As far as Romney and Perry goes, they are so crony in their politics, the smell and stench, of their words and actions, stink so bad, you have to hold your nose, just to watch and listen to them.. in other words, their Hypocrisy, from their cronyism, is collapsing their campaigns, as they lie to the Republican Party Primary voters, and pretend that they are conservative, let alone consistent, and expose themselves in front of the whole Nation, time and time again.. but they just don’t get it, that they are what’s wrong with the Republican Party, not what’s right..
 
With that being said, there are really only 3 good conservative candidates in the race, Newt, Cain, and Bachmann, and among them, only Newt has the qualifications to be the US President.. other than being a natural born US citizen..
 
Cain is attractive as an alternative conservative candidate, to Romney and Perry, because he is not a crony capitalist republican party politician, let alone in Washington DC- as in he is an outsider.. but he does not have any International World Affairs experience, and saying he would negotiate with terrorists, dictators, and radical extremists, is not a good position for the US President.. and he is entangled in a sexual harassment scandal, albeit, an older accusation, that could bring his campaign crashing down.. and in a ball of fire..
 
Michele Bachmann is my favorite Constitutional Conservative,  and would be a good, if not great President, but her lack of experience in Nation political scene, is showing with her straining to be relevant in the race, not as far as the media polls go, but as far as the conservative voters go..
 
Newt is the only one ready for this fight, and can take on any comers, with ease..  although he has issues as well, nonetheless, he has the gravitas, the wherewithal,  the knowledge, expertise, and experience, and the skill, to beat, not only the other candidates hands down, but especially Obama in the General election.. and he won’t turn into a spineless jellyfish, once in office..
 
If the Conservative Republican voters, especially the Tea Party voters can get behind Newt, then I believe he will be the Republican Party Nominee,
 
We must have someone competent in the White House, and with Newts experience and expertise, he is the best one in the field, and can easily tear apart Obama in any debate..
 
The 2012 election will not be about the Republican Party Nominee, but will be referendum on Obama.. and with Obama intentionally destroying the Nation, the US Economy, Jobs, the US Dollar, US Energy supply, and all American’s futures, Newt only has to hold his ground, and that he can do easily..

    Virtually all presidential candidates lack experience in foreign policy while running for their first term. The exceptions are Eisenhower and George H. W. Bush.

    The lack of foreign policy experience can be compensated for with 1) character, 2) an understanding of world history, 3) a commitment to constitutional and 4) conservative principles and 5) common sense. Note that Obama lacks experience and the other five. That explains the mess we are in today…

As long is this open, has anybody else noticed this bit about cancer screening? When we had private health insurance, the liberals forced mandates on health insurance. One such mandate might be for mammograms. The thinking was that insurance companies would have to raise premiums for that coverage. Thus the mandate, and EveryBody would pay for breast cancer screening. Even single males, such as myself, who have little likelihood of needing such screening. Such screenings make sense for individuals, but not for large systems trying to curb costs. Now we have, with 0bamaCare, a large system. From a system point of view, such screenings are very expensive. Thus the idea has been put forward that we ‘really don’t need to screen for breast or prostate cancer. all those false positives just require further tests and all that stuff.’ The shoe is on the other foot, and now Patriotic Americans don’t get screened. Amazing how parts of the medical community have thrown the car in reverse. Of course, once in the 0bamaCare ditch, with him sitting behind the wheel with his Slurpee(r), it’s going to be hard to get out of the ditch.

(He doesn’t seem to be using that one much anymore. I was always confused by that metaphor, since those struggling with the car in the ditch had to deal with both dust and mud, which seems to be a contradiction. Maybe we weren’t supposed to think about things too much. Like where did he get his Slurpee? Had the 0ne not been slurping on his Slurpee, think he might have missed the ditch?)

That was a good speech. I really liked how he was so gracious to his “competitors” (not “opponents”!).

Newt does deserve the credit for the balanced budget of the early 90’s which the democrats try to give to Clinton. Clinton submitted five deficit laden budgets before finally accepting Newt’s balanced budget.

I wonder what reader’s think about Newt’s “personal” problems, having been divorced twice before. It is easy to hear Newt’s love for Callista whenever he refers to her. She is an Iowa girl, having graduated cum laude from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. She is a dedicated Catholic and was instrumental in his conversion to Catholicism. Their romance began while he was still married to his second wife.

    Nothing says “true love” like cheating on your second wife with a “good Catholic girl.”

    Seriously, how much of a “dedicated Catholic” can you be committing adultery? Do you not understand the Catholic church’s stance on adultery, divorce and remarriage? I do and I’m not a Catholic.

    But you are correct. Newt can give a great speech. The problem is he will disavow that speech a week or a month later and demonstrate he is a big-government statist all too much like George Bush and Mitt Romney.
