1.  President Obama wants his supporters to “buck up”                      —  but he himself continually fails to “buck up” to his failures.

2.  And you thought picking up the tab for your mother-in-law’s family was expensive  — how ’bout them apples.

3.  Obama pushes Israel to compromise with the Palestinians without understanding the risks and politics of the Israelis  —  President Obama pushes to get prompt results so as to campaign on his “successes”, regardless of the cost to Israel?…

4.  For all practical purposes, capital executions in California do not exist — whether at the local, state or federal level, California opposes capital punishment?

5.  Things don’t get better — Poor Mexico : still some try to do good and pay with their lives…

Person of the week: John Boehner


 John Boehner

Reportedly the New York TIMES  (with likely support/encouragement  from the Obama White House) is preparing a (hit piece?) story about the Congressional Republican leader — to influence the November elections by helping  the Democratic Party… The dirty tricks releasing of such a story so close to the elections will help President Obama’s agenda and his Democratic Party supporters….  Reminds a bit of the hit piece by Dan Rather on Bush so close to the presidential election awhile back…

A laundry list: politically wishy washy?


On the road this weekend…  Just read, among several things,  that “Obama seeks to curb ruling on gays in the military”…  Whether this or that, in domestic matters or international ones, President Obama seems to be too much at the whim of his advisors and buffeted by the winds of political polls…  He says whatever he believes will help him politically overall…  Does not seem to lead from principled positions…

Among some here and throughout the world, it seems his leadership deficiencies have brought significant numbers of  people to think that America is in decline — and of course that perception is not welcomed nor desired… 

Elections in November ought to be a good gauge of how involved and unhappy/happy Americans are with the current political and practical  messes emanating from the White House…  Unless they “stay home” on election day…

Potpourrie Pan America: The president goes to a Christian church to show he is not a Muslim; plays racial politics; attacks Tea Partyers and more

1.  Mascots tussle  —  we’re number 1, we’re number 1!!!   It’s football time…  immature tussles, like those wanting to assault the Tea Partyers…

2.  Colin trying to be significant — be honest, Colin, you hire illegals until you blurt it out and get caught… 

3.  Even the Swedes are beginning to be fed up — of illegal immigration and Fatwas.

4.  See America, I am not a Muslim, I go to church — when it is politically necessary?!

5.  It’s not only Obama, but Clinton too attacking the Tea Party Movement — political Dirty Tricks : White House wants to assault the Tea Party Movement with the aid of the New York Times(?), but do they know who the Tea Partyers are!

6.  Obama makes racial appeal   — to Blacks…

7.  Carter          — exit stage left!, have you no shame, Mr. Carter/Mr. Clinton —  Get out of the way…

8.  Who’s this?:

 

Person of the Week: French president Nicolas Sarkozy

Although there were a number of people who from this standpoint could have been selected this week (such as Christine O’Donnell of Delaware), Sarkozy was selected because his confrontation with the European Union is an indication of how nations, if not careful and vigilant,  can begin to lose their sovereignty when they are members of super international organizations…   President Sarkozy‘s policy is a distinct contrast to the actions of President Obama…

*****  Referring to Sarkozy’s actions of expelling illegal immigrants from France,  “…  E.U. Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding had denounced France’s deportation policy as “disgraceful,” saying it probably breached E.U. law…”

Some Republicans are some of the worse enemies of their own party?


Aging prima donna Charlie Crist in Florida quits his Party when he concludes he cannot possibly win his Party’s nomination for U.S. Senator, and proceeds to badmouth Republican Marco Rubio, as well as doing the same to the Republican Party as a whole, while  cozying up to Obama and Biden…

Republican Christine O’Donnell defeats Congressman Castle for the U.S. Senate position in Delaware and Castle’s people attack her the next day, vehemently, and their boss as of late Thursday had not called the lady to congratulate her and pledge his support…

U.S. Senator Murkowski has not endorsed Miller, who defeated her in the U.S. Senate Republican primary race in Alaska not too long ago…

And it seems the Republican Party organization has been in a quandary at times about whether to support whomever the party electorate elects, in its own primaries…  Whether you like the winner or not, there ought to be no hesitation, people… It’s your primary…

President Obama and his Party have created plenty of problems for traditional America, and they have foisted those problems on all Americans because their political machine apparently misunderstands what the values are that have made America exceptional

But despite the Democrats reportedly in a precarious position with the American electorate, nonetheless, if the Republican Party fails to achieve significant positive results in the November elections against them, would not be surprising if  it will be because of the failures of Republican candidates who were sore losers and because of the shortcomings of some of the ol’  fogies of the  Republican state and national organizations… Get-your-head-out, people
