The apple does not fall far from the libertarian tree. The one thing that is the biggest negative in ever considering Rand Paul as PotUS is that he shares the same isolationist/non-interventionist scrawny foreign policy beliefs as his father. Is Rand purposely trying to alienate a segment of the Republican base before primaries by commenting… Read more »

–George W. Bush
In wake of the terrorist attack Saturday that claimed 68 lives at the famous Nairobi shopping mall, and in wake of the 12th anniversary of 9/11, I revisited President Bush’s September 2001 speech to a Joint Session of Congress:
On his Facebook page:
We’re supposed to believe that the perpetrators of 9/11 hated us for our freedom and goodness. In fact, that crime was blowback for decades of US intervention in the Middle East. And the last thing we needed was the government’s response: more wars, a stepped-up police and surveillance state, and drones.
“Ask Osama bin Laden and the 22 out of 30 top al Qaeda leaders who’ve been taken off the field, whether I engage in appeasement. Or whoever is left out there. Ask them about that.”
–President Obama firing across the bow at his GOP critics
Yesterday I linked an article regarding how President Obama is aggressively going after the military vote (a constituency that traditionally tends to vote Republican).
Reuters is reporting that if the election were held today, President Obama would indeed win the military vote by as much as 7 points:
While the two front runners still follow the Obama contraceptive distraction down the political rabbit hole, and away from Obama’s record, at least the two “also rans” – Ron Paul and Newt – are trying to remain focused on the winning issues important to voters, needed for a Nov win of the WH… the economy, and by proxy, prices at the pump.
Rush Limbaugh blasts Ron Paul as the Conservative Killer:
…the majority of people that voted him were not Republican. And in another poll, the percentage of Ron Paul voters who say they will vote for the Republican nominee is… like 80% of Tea Party voters in New Hampshire said no matter who the Republican nominee is they’re voting for it. The Ron Paul number is 40%.
Yeah, I know it’s only New Hampshire. We all knew Romney was going to take that state. But good grief, imagine if the choice was between these two?
Wow! What a nightmare.
One of the most widely-held claims of Ron Paul supporters is the fervent belief that he enjoys majority support from active and retired military personnel over all other presidential candidates; and that this is measurably true based on FEC records. But is this fact or mere campaign propaganda and hype?
Full disclosure: I’m a Paul supporter. I say that as an American, not as a representative of any armed force. I don’t agree with everything he thinks, but I believe in the Constitution and THAT is my thermometer for judging candidates. Only because I know how the political system works can I not be worried… Read more »
It’s a close one:
Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney waged a seesaw battle for supremacy in Iowa’s Republican presidential caucuses late Tuesday night, the opening round of a campaign to pick a challenger to President Barack Obama.
