  1. Have I mentioned lately that I hate him?

    Sounds like the inverse story of Abram bargaining with God to save Sodom and Gomorrah…

    Inspired by Nero, the dumb bastard might as well get up on the desk and do a jig while playing the fiddle and laughing maniacally at the conflagration outside.

    I’m wondering what he will do with this money – buy a time machine and erase his record?

    Every time a Democrat is elected to POTUS, the office of the White House is demeaned. It takes a Republican as POTUS to, at least, restore morality & dignity. Now what we need is a conservative Republican to restore our liberty.

    He was filling the piggy bank so Mooochelle could do her photo op at target!

      Yeah right, there she is shopping at Target, cause she’s just, you know, one of the folks.

      Meanwhile her jumbo jet idles out on the runway with teams of assistants and courtiers ready to whisk her away to another taxpayer-funded vacation, where she will wear her gaudy Target shorts and pullover.

    Looks like Michelle wants the good life of just shopping at the Target on a lazy afternoon back, lol, she’s telling us it’s ok to fire her husband!!! 🙂 lol

    After a cup of coffee (and this always raises my IQ for a short interval (although a few of you will disagree with this, especially after you read my comment)), the notion hit me that the Republican ticket is to be Romney/Cain. I’m not editorializing in this post (not more than I can help, anyway), merely prognosticating and contemplating. I think Romney will stay on top simply by being the least vulnerable. He’ll be widely regarded as having some demerits but no show-stoppers. He’ll win by not losing. He’ll also benefit from having a stronger organization.

    We know Cain’s stock has been rising lately. Is this merely a flash in the pan; another “none of the above” protest vote like Trump and (maybe) Perry? I can’t see Cain coming out on top because he simply doesn’t have the full résumé, but he probably won’t flame out the way Trump and (maybe) Perry did. You can’t help but feel that Cain’s on your side; he’s got that sort of charisma. He’s the man to nail down the swing votes, and reassure the conservatives that the Party hasn’t forgotten them, thus energizing the base. And presumably Cain is willing to go for VP; he’s not the kind that’s ego-driven to be #1 or he won’t play (or at least that’s the way he comes across).

    The ticket will be sold as a pair of successful businessmen that know how an economy really works, as opposed to those academic eggheads like Obama that live in ivory towers and expect the peons to be grateful for being ordered around by such superior beings.

    By the way, I don’t care how bad things look now; Obama will not be a pushover. He’ll be difficult to dislodge. A lot of people buy into his hatemongering. If the economy seems to have bottomed out, he may pick up a lot of the wishy-washy vote.

    If the Republican takes it, I’ll be concerned that the pressure is on them to deliver immediately. Just as Obama launched into an insane spending spree to quickly “help” us, so the Republicans will feel they must do something similar. The Republicans will emphasize the tax cuts rather than spending, but they’ll be afraid to cut because so many interests will demand that the money spigot continue to spew dollars. Of course I’d like the president, whichever party he or she comes from, to focus on economic balance and fiscal responsibility and stop “helping” us so much. But my voice will be drowned out.

    The question I have about Romney is how he’ll handle foreign affairs. I’m thinking not about the usual platitudes and talking points (e.g., Israel is a friend) but about the nuanced details. How do you play the game in a cunning way, so as to stymie your enemies as surgically as possible? (Oddly enough, I’ve got to give Obama a few points for quietly pushing the drone raids against terror strongholds in Pakistan; somebody in the administration understands that there’s more to counter-terrorism than paying off the Pakistani leaders.)

    “America’s gotten a little soft”? I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that these unfortunate words are going to trigger a spate of political cartoons with a caricature of our president hawking Viagra to a crowd of the unemployed who have other more immediate needs. Cartoonists can be soooo cruel…

    By the way, I do agree that we have gotten a little soft. That’s because too many of our people buy into the psychology of victimhood, and are thus relieved of any sense of personal responsibility. And there’s a degree of truth in the victimhood paradigm; the problem is that it’s also a self-fulfilling prophecy, and we’ve got to downplay it in order to become an effective human being. Unfortunately, the sort of policies the Obamas of this world advocate have the opposite effect, and push adults towards a state of mental infancy. Or, to put it metaphorically, Obama promises Viagra, but his delivery is limp.
