Choosing the next Prom Queen?
Is this what an election now comes down to? What about capability? Isn’t it more important that our President be capable rather than likable? We seem to be so starstruck and infantile when it comes to making a decision of such great import to our country. Do we really need a President who will give us things to garner votes or, one who tells us we need to be responsible for our own lives. Do we need a President who singles out certain groups of people to bestow favors on as a “privileged” group or, do we want a President who insists on equality for all as guaranteed in the Constitution. Do we need a President who thinks certain groups, including himself, are above the law and protects them from prosecution. Or, a President who manipulates the economy to favor certain groups of people and their businesses to the detriment of the whole of society. Do we really need a President who has made telling the truth socially unacceptable and uses his power to prosecute those who do tell the truth and, make every effort to uphold the law for the benefit of the citizens.
One of the most dangerous trends of our times is making the truth socially unacceptable, or even illegal, with “hate speech” laws. It is supposed to be terrible, for example, to call an illegal alien an “illegal alien” or to call an Islamic terrorist an “Islamic terrorist.” When the media refer to “undocumented” workers or to violence committed by “militants,” who is kidding whom — and why?
Looks like the Dems have had some second thoughts about all that Canadian oil. China is on the verge of making a 15 billion deal for the privilege of buying from Canada. Out of pure spite, in order to blame the R-words for our very horrible bad economy and for being obstructionists, and to fill the coffers of their “best friends” who donate to their campaigns, Dems nixed the Keystone pipeline. Now, surprise, they are all squishy because they have “ceded a massive chunk of North American oil assets to the communist nation.
In a draft letter to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), Sen. Schumer writes:
I respectfully urge you, in your capacity as chairman of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), to withhold approval of this transaction to ensure U.S. companies reciprocal treatment.
Similarly, Rep. Pelosi is now sounding alarms of concern. In a statement, Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hamill said:
This deal prompts great concern about the Chinese government’s continued attempts to use its state-owned enterprises to acquire global energy resources.
How smug they were and how pathetic they are now. Did they think for a moment Canada would just bow and wait? Now they beg someone to save them from their own ignorance. Is it any wonder so many have left the Dem Party? What would have provided thousands of jobs for Americans, given our economy a huge boost, lessened our dependence on the ME oil kingdoms, was shot down by the Dems for a few thousand votes from the “greens” and their campaign money. Pretty pathetic aren’t they and not really very likable.
We really do have a huge choice to make. The more one studies the likability of BO, the more one can see he isn’t very likable at all, at least when running for re-election. We’ve had our Prom Queen, now we need a capable individual who knows how to turn this economy around and who will be a President for all the people.
