Huckabee has been verbal lately and in doing so has shown his lack of civility, something you would expect from a minister……..

I saw this message to Mike on Twitter and just had to share it…….could not have been better said……..ENJOY!

Most Americans Don’t Vote in Elections | Al Jazeera America

Surprise!  2016 election is quickly coming into focus…..the very first GOP debate is only about a week away and then we will be off with a bang…..and with all the interest in the election most Americans will not vote….well at least 40% of them…..why is that?

The biggest problem in American society is that the citizens do not vote.  I have seen many attempts to explain this phenom but so far few have made sense.

In a country that its people dearly love democracy but fail to exercise their duty and voting in the elections is a paradox with little explanation.

Each election the people vote with their feet and stay away from the polls…..and that is giving morons and thieves a free ride into Washington…..but will that ever change?

This is a good piece on the phenom of the lack of voting by Americans…….

Huckabee: Stealing The Thunder

We all have marveled at the idiocy that is Donald Trump.  His comment on Hispanics and Mexicans have pissed off a whole segment of society….but the upside is the media cannot get enough of his stupidity.  And he is the front runner at this time for the GOP nomination…….and that speaks volumes about the mental capability of the GOP…..at least to me.

But while the Donald was languishing in the spotlight of fame he has been ambushed by another……a preacher with just as much stupidity as Trump……I am speaking about Huckabee.

We know that all the GOP candidates are on the same page in the opposition to the Iranian deal….but my man Huck has taken it to the extremes……..

It’s no surprise that presidential candidate Mike Huckabee isn’t happy with the recent Iran nuclear deal, but the rhetoric he used to make his point has prompted a call from the Democratic National Committee for an apology, the BBC reports. In an interview with Breitbart on Saturday, the ex-Arkansas governor called President Obama’s foreign policy “the most feckless in American history” and said the commander in chief was “naive” to think we should place our trust in Iran. But it’s what he said next that ired the DNC: Huckabee said that by striking the Iran deal, which he calls the “most idiotic thing,” Obama “will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.” He continued: “It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”

In a statement, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Huckabee’s comments had “no place in American politics” and that “cavalier analogies to the Holocaust are unacceptable,” per CNN. “Mike Huckabee must apologize to the Jewish community and to the American people for this grossly irresponsible statement,” she added. But Huckabee doubled down on Twitter with a graphic of his controversial quote, accompanied by the message: “Tell Congress to do their constitutional duty & reject the Obama-Kerry #IranDeal.” He also included a link to his website, where he demanded Congress not take summer vacation until it kills the “horrific, humiliating handout to Iran that threatens Israel, emboldens terrorists, and will trigger a nuclear arms race across the Middle East.” His campaign rep simply noted to CNN that “the comment speaks for itself.”

Someone had to stop Trumps meteoric rise and Huck took it upon himself…….he doubled down on the “oven” comment saying that he had been to Auschwitz three times and stood at the door of the oven….he knows what the door looks like…..seriously?  Apparently all you need to qualify as an expert in the GOP in foreign policy is the capability in recognizing a door……

But what can you expect from the brain of a Baptist preacher?  Certainly not anything rational.

For now Huck has stolen Donald’s thunder….and the god will be angered…….

Best News For Democrats?

The Dems are smiling at the prospect of Clinton winning the nomination and then the general election…….the GOP could pick someone that could give her a run for her money…..some say it is Jeb….but I think that Scott Walker would be a better choice for the RNC……..

Even if they the GOP run a proper candidate……there could still be a wrinkle in their chances…….

Donald Trump says he’s not a Washington insider, which is why the GOP is treating him so badly—and why he’ll entertain a third-party run, he tells the Hill. “So many people want me to, if I don’t win [the GOP nomination],” he said during the 40-minute conversation in Manhattan’s Trump Tower. “I’ll have to see how I’m being treated by the Republicans. Absolutely, if they’re not fair, that would be a factor.” Ostensibly among his beefs are being taken to task by RNC chief Reince Priebus for his recent immigration comments, as well as GOP pushback for insinuating Sen. John McCain isn’t a war hero. “The RNC has not been supportive,” he continued. “They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy. The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.”

As for his outsider status, “I’m not in the gang. I’m not in the group where the group does whatever it’s supposed to do. I want to do what’s right for the country—not what’s good for special interest groups.” Other nuggets on his plans if he becomes No. 45: He’d appoint Supreme Court judges with a “conservative bent,” support congressional term limits, and work closely with China because “they love Trump.” He didn’t say much about upcoming GOP debates, other than: “These politicians debate every night. That’s all they do is talk. I don’t do that. I’m a job creator.” But despite citing his high polling numbers, Trump said it would be “presumptuous” to declare his nomination in the bag.

Could be the best news for the Dems…….for if Trump is stupid and runs as a third party it will most assuredly give the election to the Dems…….

Dear Right wing morons……if you want to see that Clinton is elected then please by all means vote for Trump and his 3rd party run……..Dems will thank him and you for your help……

There’s a simple way to end gerrymandering. Too bad Congress made it illegal. – Vox

I have been saying for a long time that the American voter use to pick its politicians but thanx to gerymandering it is that politicians get to pick their voters……

This one situation is killing the American democratic experiment that we have fought for for over 200 years…..and it is getting worse and more out of hand…..

Will The 2016 GOP Parade Ever End?

Today number 16 or 17 candidate will enter into the comedic parade known as the GOP dash to the nomination.  Today Ohio governor, John Kasich has jumped in and this may be the last “serious” candidate for the nomination…….I am sure there are others that want to pad their resume to gain a bigger share of the cash on the rubber chicken circuit of politics.

 Good news for Republican voters who aren’t wild about Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, George Pataki, Rick Santorum, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz, Scott Walker, Donald Trump, Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, or Marco Rubio: John Kasich is running for president. The second-term governor of Ohio and former congressman is returning to the Ohio State University campus in Columbus where he became an aspiring politician to announce his 2016 bid for president.

Kasich is known for his unfiltered style and policies that are not always in line with his party. Moreover, he’s been one of the few Republican contenders to resist going after the chief Democratic prospect, Hillary Clinton, or President Obama. He says if he has to trash people to win, count him out. Kasich is the 16th notable Republican to get into the race. He’s hoping his 18 years in Congress, near-decade as a Lehman Brothers managing director, and two terms as a swing-state governor will help him stand out.

Is it all in?  The next landmark in this election cycle will be the first debate on FOX…..the problem there is the way it is set up there will be only about 2 serious candidates in that debate….if anything it will be sideshow to the circus…….full of softball questions and answer that generate applause…..nothing of a serious nature will be mentioned……

I do not see Kasich generating much enthusiasm among the rank and file……he will definitely not be a fave of the Teat Party ……so what does he hope to accomplish?  A bigger paycheck on the speech circuit of conservatism……is the best he will do.
