It looks like Steve Parry has known what he was talking about all along.
After the recent election, some of my friends on Facebook who supported President Obama bristled at my commentary on what we had observed. I even had one tell me that I was a "sore loser" when a discussion of Government phones saw these devices labeled as "Obama Berry" and I replied that such a device obviously wasn't a "smart phone." Now obviously, some of my comments were in jest. Others, such as the collective IQ of those who supported the President's reelection were not. Think about it. In the first election, then Senator Obama ran against a Government that failed because of the President. In round 2, President Obama ran against a Government that failed because of the Congress. You follow?
Richard Mourdock fires up left with controversial rape comment.
It can't be a great political issue if it doesn't have a great name, and few modern issues have a better name than WOW (War On Women). Why, it would almost seem a little too good to be true, wouldn't it? If I didn't know any better, I would think that the whole thing had been made up in a left wing spin room, but I digress. This is no time to get off on rabbit trails about how a name was concocted. There is genuine phony outrage out there, and something needs to be done. First off, we need to know what Mourdock said.
President Obama doesn't seem very amused.
Do you ever get the feeling that President Obama has absolutely no sense of humor whatsoever? Sure, he likes making jokes at the expense of others. So of course, a pop shot at Mitt Romney tying his dog to the roof is to be expected from time to time. But a joke at the expense of Dear Leader himself? No, that's not so funny. Of course one would think that a politician who made it all the way to the White House would have some thick skin, but follow his campaigns response to this little line and it seems to be quite the opposite. Enter the joke.
Remember Cindy... what's her name?
Meet Joe Soptic. He's the latest in the long line of people that make the tragic mistake of thinking that the Democrats care. Trust me, they don't. So Joe is now the latest victim of the Democrats who gets suckered into exploiting the memory of a dead relative for the best interest of the party. I know, it seems like the thing to do at the time. The media attention and all of the politicians fawning over you makes it seem as if they are genuinely concerned. They will give you well wishes and follow you around... until election day, that is. They don't care about your loved one. They don't want to make it better for you. They just want the emotion of your story behind their campaign. Speaking of which, has anyone seen Cindy Sheehan?
Can a leopard change his spots?
Many times the answer to some of the political questions that face us is somewhere right in the middle of the left and the right. The left will often make absurd claims like "Republicans want dirty air and water" and the right will respond with "Democrats want people to get abortions." While there may be a handful of extremists who for whatever reason want dirty air or water, nobody is going to believe a statement as idiotic as that. Furthermore, most Democrats who support abortion rights have a much more moderate position on the issue like I do myself. While abortion is objectionable and should be used only as a last resort, it is a medical decision that a woman must make for herself, and her decision should not be legislated by the Government. So what of this war on women we have been hearing about? Where does the truth lie on this issue?
Should Ron Paul have run as a Democrat?
I didn't think of this myself until just now, so I'm not faulting Ron Paul and his campaign for not coming up with this themselves. That having been said, I'm not a Paul supporter, nor am I inclined to consider strategy for his efforts. The thought just crept up on me the other day when I was considering the West Virginia, Arkansas, and Kentucky primary results. Since President Obama had a hard time defending himself against a prisoner, an out of state lawyer, and "anybody but Obama" respectively, imagine if he had faced a real opponent. Now the first inclination is to imagine candidate Hillary facing Obama. But continue down the list and eventually you get there. Ron Paul would have likely beat President Obama in West Virginia. Follow that thought to it's conclusion, and the results are stunning.
What does Keith Judd's showing in West Virginia say about Ron Paul?
For those who haven't been following the Primaries all that closely, it may come as a surprise to you that a convict currently serving time in Texas named Keith Judd gave President Obama a run for his money in the West Virginia Democratic Primary. Judd finished with a whopping 41% of the vote to Obama's 59%, highlighting the true devastating consequences that the President's energy policies have had on this coal mining State. Interestingly enough, Ron Paul supporters seized on this moment to tell us how these results show how he is the only Candidate who can beat President Obama in 2012. You can't make this stuff up, folks, so it here is straight from the horses mouth.
Having fun with President Obama's latest generalization of women.
For the last few years I have been questioning the true genius of our President. I must now say that I stand corrected. Upon hearing about the story from his book about a girl he had dated, and learning that it was in fact a "composite girlfriend" I figured the guy would be in big time trouble with women voters. After all, anybody who has dated one of these specimens has learned by now not to say "you women are all alike" or "it figures that a woman would say that" or "your sister is really hot." That last one doesn't really apply here, but you shouldn't say that. It will get you hurt. But back to the genius of President Obama, this guy has managed to find a way to lump every women he has ever dated into one chick, give her a generic name, and tell her story without outraging the ladies. And if that wasn't enough, he created a new fictional girl to show how his policies will help all women who are exactly alike throughout the course of there extremely similar existence. Her name is Julia. Let's have fun with her, shall we?
