GOP: A Sarah In Carly Clothing?

It is our lucky day!

A busy day in the line for filing to run for prez………a popular past time among GOPers……..

Its official yet another GOP candidate for the fire……we have a plethora of male d/bags, a black retired doctor and now we have a female running for the nomination of the GOP for the 2016 election….shades of Palin?  Oh joy.

Yep Carly Fiorina is running for president of the good old USA…….since she could not win as governor of California or was it US Senator?……..But that somehow should give her a leg up for the presidency……..I just love these people that have more money than brains and must feed that ever expanding ego…..and this one has that huge ego problem.

Say hello to our newest GOP candidate……..

“I think I’m the best person for the job because I understand how economy actually works,” Fiorina said during an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America.
Although she is considered a longshot candidate, Fiorina has positioned herself as a foil to Hillary Clinton, often attacking the Democratic candidate for her track record as secretary of state and on social issues. The line of attack has been warmly received in the Republican Party, and it is likely that Fiorina will be the only female candidate in the Republican field.
Yep,  GOP now has an attack dog that can say whatever she likes against Clinton and sexism cannot be a way to criticize…..

The GOP has been looking for that “special” lady to fill in where Palin crapped out…..is this that “special” lady?  We could make a comparison like they are both GOP women and……..(give me a minute I am thinking)…….never mind!  I do not think she is capable of that down ho,me demeanor that Palin had…….they both can sling worthless red meat at the micro brained base but in the end they are both completely worthless as candidates.

We all wait on baited breath for an announcement from Huckabee and then the field of wackos will be complete………and we wait!

GOP: Another Clown For The Car

Things work out weird sometimes…….like today…..I never intended on this being a pre-2016 election special…..but as thing work out it is……..I know a bit early but as they say “fore-warned is fore-armed”……..

The GOP is growing and an alarming rate……soon every GOP voter will have their own personal candidate.

The newest candidate is 2016’s version of 2012’s Herman Cain……..Dr, Ben Carson, a bored retire doctor with very little intelligent thing to say…….but he is running……..

The three senators officially seeking the GOP nomination are have been joined by somebody with more experience in brain surgery than politics. “I’m willing to be part of the equation and therefore, I’m announcing my candidacy for President of the United States of America,” retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson tells CBS 12. The 63-year-old is expected to launch his candidacy at an event in his hometown, Detroit, this morning, reports the New York Times, which notes that the field is filling up: Sens. Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Rand Paul have already declared, former Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina is expected to enter the race today, and Mike Huckabee is expected to follow suit tomorrow.

Carson has never been elected to political office, but he doesn’t see political inexperience as a drawback and polls put him right in the middle of the potential GOP field, ahead of the likes of Rick Santorum, reports CNN. After his speech today, the vocal opponent of ObamaCare plans to travel to Iowa, where a pro-Carson political action committee says it has already recruited leaders in all 99 counties, the Times reports. In March, Carson apologized for claiming that prison proves homosexuality is a choice, and he tells CBS 12 he has learned from the experience. “I don’t wander off into those extraneous areas that can be exploited. I have learned that,” he says.

YAWN!  And more yawns to come.

Who Will It Be In 2016?

Oh dear……..the 2012 election is over and what shall we write about?  We meaning, us bloggers that the media hates.  We could join in the chorus of those analyzing the crap out of the results of the vote…..but… why on earth would we want to do that?  We could aggravate each other until the point of screaming…..or we could try something new and write about what we think about the 2016 election.

Personally, I would like to try and think about our next shot at electing a president…..I guess we could call it a prediction of sorts……..join in it could be a hoot.

First let us look at the Democrats……..

Cuomo……this seems to be the most talk about at this point…….I think it is dumb….why?  He is shacking up in the governor’s mansion and boy would that be a lightening rod for the opposition.

Biden–I think after Obama he may have had enough of DC and will not be interested in running again……plus he is getting old….time to rest.

Hilary–Dem women would love this and I think that she may be interested but I still think she has had enough also.  Time to kick back and make money.

Castro–the mayor of San Antonio is attractive and a good speaker and he is Hispanic and he is young….this could be the most popular choice for Dems…..

Republicans——–

T-Paw–I believe he will try again and that he will back off the stuff that made him unattractive in thye last round of primaries…..

Huntsman–If the GOP does some soul searching then he will try again and be a front runner…..for under normal circumstances he was the best person for the nomination in 2012…..

Jindal–he seems to be a popular person within the party…..but I do not think he has a chance the primaries will eat him up….

Rubio–a very popular person within the GOP…..but just running does not guarantee the Hispanic vote…he will be a good choice in the primaries but unless he modifies some of his stances he will be a dud……

Condi–I want to say a good choice…..but being female is not the best gauge of a candidate……

The there is Jeb……..a good choice

My money is on Rubio (who is going to Iowa in November 2012) and Jeb…….

There has been enough crap spread by both sides….let’s have a little fun before the cycle begins again……we can do it…we do not have to dislike each other…….

Okay, there are my predictions for the makeup of the 2016 primaries……whatta think?  Let us hear your ideas and choices……

Mitt Panders His Ass Off!

Today is the primary in my part of the world—-and poor Mitt has his work cut out for him……Southerners hate him….they do not trust him and he is a Mormon….we can pretend that the religion thing is unimportant, but it is and it will be going forward…..

Poor Mitt he just cannot catch a break….remember in Michigan he liked the tress?  Recall in Tennessee he uttered the words to Davey Crockett….thank God he did not sing……..and here in Mississippi he used y’all and said that he likes grits….cheesy grits….sorry but this man would not now a grit if it bit him in the ass…..even low info voters know this man is pandering, tasteless pandering…….

He keeps trying to connect with us mere mortals and each time he looks more pathetic than the time before…..but all this pandering is just a disingenuous attempt….makes him appear that he has NOTHING to offer the voters….especially in the Deep South….

Romney was met by about 200 supporters there, where he talked job creation, cutting taxes, reducing the deficit and eliminating government waste. He said Obama hasn’t addressed those issues in his first four years in office, but he believes Mississippi has.

“If the federal government were run more like the government here in Mississippi, the whole country would be a lot better off,” Romney said.

Now there is something that the whole country can look forward to if he is elected……to be like Mississippi…..a horrible education system, lousy health care, higher poverty rates, massive obesity and outrageous diabetes rates and really shitty wages…..now there is something to be proud of saying….you want the country to be run like Mississippi…..

I am sorry but the future nominee of the GOP is a putz!  If that is what we have to look forward to with a president Romney then I say give me Lenin any day!

One last point….it is “cheese grits”….NOT “cheesy grits”!…..but there was something “cheesy”…..Mitt’s lame attempt to connect with Mississippians!

Sorry But Rick Will Not last

Yes, there is a new alternative to Mitt…..first it was trump then Cain then Perry then Newt and then along came Rick…..and once Rick got his teeth into the fabric of presidential politics he began his right wing extremists rhetoric…..I know this man believes and believes strongly in what he says……and he is popular now and may even beat Romney in Mitt’s’ home state of Michigan or is it Utah…no it is Mass….no I believe it is Michigan…..yeah!  It is Michigan!  Anyway the GOP seems to looking for anybody but Mitt and some say Rick is that candidate……I think it is wishful thinking.  Why? it gonna be a long drawn out process and Rick will not last…..he will not last for 5 reasons  (thanx to the Week for the breakdown)….

1. He’ll drown in a sea of Romney’s money
Many pundits believe that Romney can’t take down Santorum with the kind of negative ads he used to annihilate Newt Gingrich, simply because Santorum doesn’t have nearly as many skeletons in his closet as the thrice-married Gingrich does. But “even if he doesn’t go heavily negative,” says Ed Kilgore at The New Republic, “Romney can use his heavy money advantage to saturate the airwaves” with positive ads in Arizona and Michigan, which vote on Feb. 28. That should help Romney stage a comeback in those two states. And if Mitt wins both, “the road gets much rockier for Santorum.”

2. Santorum can’t appeal to mainstream Americans
“Santorum is essentially an ultra-right-wing protest candidate” in what is “essentially a centrist or center-right country,” says John Cassidy at The New Yorker. The audience for “extremist views” always expands some during times of economic distress, which is how the neocons and Tea Partiers managed to burst onto the scene. But it just won’t be enough to make the country at large interested in “supporting a religious zealot and armchair militarist of Santorum’s stripe.” And with the economy improving, “the market for political extremism is shrinking anyway.”

3. Many conservatives still have eyes for Newt
In 2008, Santorum “was fighting to get former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney elected,” says Chuck Norris at WorldNetDaily. It’s still baffling that “an alleged conservative like Santorum would fight for the flip-flopping Massachusetts moderate” when there were real conservatives, like Mike Huckabee, in the race. “How can the ‘alternative to Romney’ also be a Romney supporter?” He can’t. That’s why, for many of us on the Right, Newt Gingrich is still the only true conservative alternative to Romney.

4. Nobody’s endorsing Santorum
Santorum’s victories last week in Missouri, Minnesota, and Colorado have “not resulted in a flood of endorsements from prominent conservatives, or even a trickle,” says Steve Kornacki at Salon. Facing a massive financial disadvantage against Mitt, “it’s critical for Santorum to have loud, influential Republican opinion-shapers making his case and defending him against Romney’s attacks.” Maybe GOP leaders just don’t want Santorum.

5. Swing voters don’t like him — even in his home state
Santorum likes to say he’s the only GOP candidate who “has actually won a swing state.” But six years ago, as a senator seeking a third term, “Santorum proved he can also lose in such a politically competitive state — and lose big,” says Julie Hirschfeld Davis at Bloomberg. Santorum lost his last race in the swing state he calls home by a whopping 18 percentage points. Apparently he’s not as popular with the undecided “Republicans who will determine who gets the party’s nomination,” not to mention the independents who could swing the general election in November.

I know a lot of social conservatives are praying for a Santorum win and finally the nomination….but sorry guys….he will soon be toast…..and believe me…if he is the nominee he will lose and lose badly in the general in November…..

How About A National Primary?

Does the presidential primary season seem to go on forever?

As promised in a previous post…..there is an answer……..  A National primary!

A national primary is a proposed system for conducting the US presidential primaries and caucuses, in which all of the primaries and caucuses would occur on the same day…….my thought is to get more participation make it a national holiday (just a thought)……

Today the system of staggered primaries means that voters in later primaries may find that the nominee has already been selected before they vote.  (For instance, New York, the third-largest state, voted after the nominees had been selected in both parties in both 2000 and 2004.)   Disproportionate power is given to the earliest primaries, with candidates who lose them being considered non-viable, even if they may have a lot of support in larger states.

Personally, I think that there ought to be 4 separate regional primaries….One for the Northeast, Southern, Midwest and West….this would make all equal and one state would not have an advantage over another in this process…..plus the media would still have their profit and their place in driving the election….

One of the criticisms of such a move is that it would take a butt load of money….but SCOTUS has made that a moot point…..campaigns now have an almost unlimited supply of cash especially from corporations and other special interests…so this objection is just plain silly……

The national primary or the regional primaries would make the whole system more tolerable for us mere mortals and would probably increase the voters in participation…….
