I really like this phrase coined by the former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. He has said of rival Mitt Romney that if elected he will not try to change Washington, he will only “manage the decay“. I agree. One for Newt!
There is always something in politics to be pleased about. Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio), the hyper-leftist congressman lost his primary! That makes me smile. Super Tuesday was super after all!
Rush Limbaugh is almost always right. When he called some dopey girl a slut he was guilty of being stupid! Thumbs down for Rush on that one! But, don’t get too giddy, he isn’t going away. And, he is right about this. On air today he told a caller that the Republican establishment (Rove and company…) does not want a conservative President. He was exactly right. They continually embrace what they think is the candidate with a slightly right of center political posture..Whamo!! Romney, McCain, Bush, Bush, need I go on?
Oh dear. Yes, what Rush said was stupid, and he apologized. I am probably one of the few people in America who thinks his apology was not sincere. Oh, I’m sure he is sorry he said it but I don’t think he believes it’s untrue.
I’m trying to sort this out in my head. Why does the U.S. Government continue to subsidize bad behavior? Anyone? Don’t get married, have more babies out-of-wedlock and get fatter checks from Uncle Sam. Shack up, don’t marry the girl and your federal taxes will be more favorable. Sleep around and President Obama is hell-bent on making sure you will not have one of those bothersome pregnancies. What? Why in the name of common horse sense should the government be assuring that young women can have sex and the government will make sure they have protection against an unwanted pregnancy? I know the arguments spewed out by the likes of Chris Matthews. But what about some logic? Girls, keep your pants on when in the presence of people you are not married to, works every time.
A favorite pastime of liberals is dreaming up more and more rights for U.S. citizens. The right to an education, the right to health care, the right to own a home, etc. How about the right of free speech for Rush Limbaugh? Advertisers and many high-profile Democrats are just as happy as can be to think that Limbaugh might have his free speech squashed. As I said what he said is stupid but he has the right to say whatever he wants to say. Just in the same way Bill Maher had the right as a citizen to use some ugly words to describe Sarah Palin.
By the way, Bill Maher a few hours ago came to Rush’s defense. I wonder if it could be because some folks were putting the heat on Obama’s campaign to return a tidy $1,000,000 donation from the potty mouthed Mr. Maher? Hmm.
Oh well… What about Ron Paul? What is he up to anyway. Almost everyone knows he will never, ever be President of the United States. So why does he keep running as if he thinks he can be President. He is not a dummy. He knows he can’t win so is it worth all the work just to try to get his point of view across to as many people as possible? At the end of the day most people are still going to think some of his views are so outrageous that they cast a shadow of what are some of his best ideas. I just don’t get the guy, that’s all.
It appears to me that the GOP is doing everything just about right to assure four more years of President Obama. Why do I like politics?
