Arlen Specter is a Dem

This is news? When WASN'T he a dem? As I noted in my previous post, I'm fine with him going - he voted with them more often than not (most especially when it counted). I just wish they'd take with him Olympia Snow and Ron Paul.

We should focus on the why of this - political expediency. Arlen was going to lose in a big way had he stayed a Republican. Why? Because he didn't act like a Republican. Let this be a lesson to those who think we ought to be more "moderate" (Meghan McCain? Looking at you again). We want people who support our core values - fiscal responsibility and upholding the Constitution as it's written. This mean no White Supremacists (I'm now looking at Ron Paul, but I must avert my eyes quickly). It also means no anti-Semites (Pat Buchanan? You). Let the Libertarians vote libertarian - we need our party back now more than ever.

JWF Agrees with Chuckie Schumer - and our President is a Dumb A**

JammieWearingFool has a great post on the plane debacle. I'm still struggling with the amount of stupidity it must have taken to get to the point where top government officials thought this was a good idea.

They are running the country. Egads.

PS -In case you are reading this, President Obama - I'd like to point something out on another subject related only by stupidity quotient: changing the name of something doesn't make the problem go away. If it were true, I'd be calling you Ed.

PPS - Congrats on your acquisition of Arlen. Would you take Ron Paul, too?

Let's file this under "What the hell?"


No one is this stupid naturally.

Tea Parties - Let's get it together

As you may have noticed by the absence of information on the "Tea Parties", I wasn't a big fan. I was very intrigued by the premise of this. I remain intrigued by the premise and more than ever feel like this is an opportunity for the RNC to redeem themselves, if handled correctly.

I am a great supporter of free speech. I supported Cindy Sheehan's right to be bark at the moon raving mad. Free speech doesn't mean what is said suddenly becomes free from criticism. Far from it - if you put it out there, it's fair game. In this case, we had a bunch of fringe lunatics (I will not call them right or left wing - they are their own crazy wing) who suddenly became the voice of conservatives. Ron Paul took credit for organizing this stuff, for Pete's sake!

Republicans, we were handed the last election on a silver platter, yet managed what only Republicans are capable of - screwing up when the stars are perfectly aligned. We were all right - President Obama is a world class buffoon making 2010 a golden opportunity, again, if handled correctly. Let's start with shunning those who are racists and anti-Semites. Take a hard look at the players - some big names need to get off the train (Pat Robertson, anyone?). They can say what they want, but they can't say it on behalf of the Republican party.

Ron Paul, our own version of Dennis Kucinich, needs to exit stage left as well. He needs to take Huckabee with him. This can't happen soon enough.

Let's engage the rage of the true conservatives who took part in the tea parties and open the door to those of us who didn't want our names associated with White Supremacists. We need to get together to show the Country what we really are made of: courage, integrity, morality and full support of the Constitution.

Seriously - I'm going to get better!

Dear fans (hi Dad!),

I really thought living without mi familia in Richmond would offer ample time to blog with profundity like never seen before - but by the time I get home, work out, and catch up with the peeps at LGF, i'ts midnight!

So today I make a resolution to y'all. I blog again - starting tonight. Let me go see what's up with our world, I mean besides Obama doing dumb things, and I'll blog. I am thinking I'll start a series on what's wrong with the RNC in hopes that someone (Michael, I'm looking at you) reads this and begins to make real *ahem* change.

Stay tuned!

A sign of an amatuer...or worse?

The President has a penchant for displaying his ignorance of the stature and class required of a head of state. I'm not convinced this one should be classified as one of those "gaffes":

I'm equally not convinced it is a sign of impending Muslim rule in the U.S. as I've heard on a few local talk radio stations (seriously, WBAL, you've had some issues with crossing the line into tinfoil had territory as of late). What I think is President Obama has done what we all do - reverted to the culture he was brought up in, and he is clearly schooled in how to respect leaders from the Muslim community.

Regardless of whether the reason is pure ignorance, or incredible familiarity with customs, it should never have happened. This was not mutual respect; this was bowing down to a leader of another country - a country that treats it's citizens horrifically. And yes, I know President Bush held this guy's hand. That upset me, too. Holding hands, however, does not indicate subservience as this display did. This sent a loud message to the Muslim world - intentionally or not.

Nothing says classy like an iPod as a gift to Royalty

An iPod. What could possibly be a WORSE gift for the Queen? The only thing I can come up with is an iPod with Obama speeches on it. What's that? The iPod DID have Obama's teleprompter induced speeches on it? Good grief.
