This report from New Hampshire is a telling sign….too bad most of them are Romney signs:
The sheer number of Republican yard signs in New Hampshire is staggering.
And Newt goes boom!
Newt Gingrich voiced enthusiasm for Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care law when it was passed five years ago, the same plan he has been denouncing over the past few months as he campaigned for the Republican presidential nomination.
For much of the last three years, I, like so many others who were so despondent after the election of 2008, assumed that the election of 2012 was finally going to provide the American people with a real choice of philosophies.
On the one side you have President Obama and the progressive / fascist utopia. (Fascist in the economic sense – where private property remains, but government dictates its usage – rather than the Nazi anti-Semitic / nationalist sense.) This utopia is where government plays the role of caretaker of the nation, where government tells citizens what they can and can’t do with their property, what they must buy and where they must invest, where unions have the power to coerce both government officials and private corporations that pay their members salaries.
Interesting article from RCP about the possible endorsement from Sarah Palin and the effect it can have, especially in Iowa:
“Iowans spend a lot of time examining these candidates, and no Iowan is going to invest all of this time looking at the candidates and the issues and then let someone else make that decision for them,” said Cain’s Iowa consultant Steve Grubbs. “Having said that, there are certain endorsements that would certainly provide momentum.”
Michele Bachmann walked on the Jimmy Fallon show, while the band played the song “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” without the lyrics. The drummer was named as the scapegoat and no one has yet figured out how the band knew to play the song without knowing the title or who on the show approves the musical selections.
NBC maintains that the drummer, who bragged about the incident on his tweeter account, has since been grounded rather than fired. Like an adolescent, the drummer has been “grounded”? Does this mean the drummer received a tongue in cheek reprimand for committing gross disrespect for a presidential candidate.
Republicans Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann said during a Republican debate on Saturday that they would reinstate the technique that former President George W. Bush authorized and Obama banned.
President Obama has responded to this. Here’s why waterboarding won’t be reinstated even if President Bush himself came into a third term…
Meanwhile, in the latest MSNBC poll you see that Romney’s numbers haven’t changed a bit. Anyone who is for Cain was NOT for Romney before so that isn’t surprising….and the MSM is all but crowning Romney anyway:
“He’s viewed as an almost inevitable candidate,” said longtime strategist Ed Rollins, who until last month managed the campaign of Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.), one of Romney’s opponents. “He’s the heavy favorite.”
Using techniques perfected by the pseudo-intellectuals of the Left and described in Alynsky’s “Rules For Radicals”, both Huntsman and Bachman displayed why they are unworthy to carry the standard of the GOP. Having little of substance to offer, both Huntsman and Bachman used juvenile techniques from the schoolyard to isolate and ridicule the taxation plan of Herman Cain.
There are few Americans who don’t consider our tax laws to be unwieldily to the point of being unusable. With kleptocrats like Charlie Rangel continuously writing tax laws to benefit those who own him, our taxes have become a national disgrace and yet, there is only one candidate with a plan to replace the system. Herman Cain wants to scrap the whole corrupt system and start over with a new and simpler plan he calls the 9 9 9 Plan. It is a novel concept employing simplicity that would allow businesses to streamline their accounting so as not to budget a huge portion of their revenue to conforming to the tax codes. It would also prevent corrupt incompetents like Rangel from rewriting the tax code every year to benefit those corporations who funnel the largest amounts of money to his campaign funds and to his relatives.
Couple good examples from the GOP debate last night. The resident nutcase, Ron Paul, makes a fool of himself once again:
