Typical Voters

Posted in 2012 Election on June 5th, 2012

The oddly extended GOP Primary has stirred up a bit of internecine rancor within the American people, as comments on a previous post clearly illustrate. Many Americans really don’t want Romney as either the Republican Nominee or the POTUS because he’d likely be only a cosmetic change in most ways from Obama.

In the end though, I think we will come together and stand shoulder to shoulder, a unified and focused legion that will metaphorically sweep the Liberals, Progressives, and their minority tenant into the sea.

This is what the 2012 Presidential Elections are going to come down to. American voters holding their noses and voting for the lesser of evils and their Liberal, Progressive, and Minority voters plugging their ears and voting for Obama. It’s going to be, as it almost always is despite the Lamestream Media’s lies, a straight-up base-against-base fight for the future of America.

There will, of course be a few hold-outs. Some few Americans will either put their personal preferences, prejudices, and/or idealism and dreams above the near-term needs of the country. From the look of it though, Obama’s base is crumbling under his feet. Hence, these few stalwarts won’t likely be an issue.

To borrow from the Christians, we can suffer these children, and they are children because only they can dream so well and strong. We must since what is not first dreamed can never be made real.

What it’s going to come down to, in my considered opinion, is can more Americans hold their nose against Romney’s stench than can Liberals plug their ears to harsh sounds of reality.

Romney’s Next Debate

Posted in 2012 Election, Humor, Politics on February 9th, 2012

With the LSM either taking their clues from the White House or providing them to Obama’s handlers, it’s still the odds on bet that Mitt Romney will be the GOP Nominee in the 2012 elections. That has been well proven by the ongoing attacks thinly veiled as debate questions posed to more Conservative candidates – when they’re allowed to speak at all.

Really, they should just have debates with only Mitt Romney in them. There’d still be all sides of every issue represented.

Still, as the LSM’s and Obama’s presumptive GOP nominee Romney does make an interesting comparison against Obama.

Obama was raised as a Muslim and may share in all or part of their ideology and Romney has changed political positions so often he looks like a Whirling Dervish. Romney has held every position on every issue during his political tenure and Obama has done his best to hold none.

This is going to give a whole new and sad meaning to “All or Nothing.”

It’s All Racist!

Posted in 2012 Election, Politics, Society on February 6th, 2012

According to Fox News’ commentator Juan Williams, Americans and American values are just racist and every single one of the GOP candidates is using dog-whistle for racist epithets.

Juan Williams Racist Codewords
Race Is Always A Trigger In Politics

This is an odd attitude for a man who lost his job for speaking honestly when that honesty didn’t align with his previous Liberal masters’ anti-American agenda.

It’s an even odder attitude for the man who authored Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-End Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America–and What We Can Do About It

In Enough he wrote that too many black Americans are in crisis – caught in a twisted hip-hop culture, dropping out of school, ending up in jail, having babies when they are not ready to be parents, and falling to the bottom in twenty-first-century global economic competition.

Yet, despite his previous run in with political correctness and his previous written work, Williams’ response to Americans’ indignation at how he misconducted the Fox News/Wall Street Journal GOP Primary debate in Myrtle Beach, SC was:

Race is always a trigger in politics, but now a third of the nation are people of color — and their numbers are growing. With those minorities solidly in the Democratic camp and behind the first black president, the scene is set for a bonanza of racial politics.

The language of GOP racial politics is heavy on euphemisms that allow the speaker to deny any responsibility for the racial content of his message. The code words in this game are “entitlement society” — as used by Mitt Romney — and “poor work ethic” and “food stamp president” — as used by Newt Gingrich. References to a lack of respect for the “Founding Fathers” and the “Constitution” also make certain ears perk up by demonizing anyone supposedly threatening core “old-fashioned American values.”

Juan Williams

This from a man who spent 233 pages in Enough bluntly and forthrightly – not a dog-whistle to be heard – lambasting and execrating Black Leaders and the entirety of the “Black Community” as being perversions and debasements of Black Culture and as having squandered every civil rights gain since the Civil War?

Then again, perhaps Williams’ attitude isn’t odd at all. Williams is one of those “people of color” and, if he’s also one of the majority of them who is “behind the first black president,” what  better way to undermine the entire opposition to his boy, Obama getting handed a second term as POTUS than to decry anything and everything they say as somehow being “code words” or “dog-whistles” for racist sentiments.

Or maybe Williams is just trying to get his old job at NPR back, who knows?
