A Survival Guide for Independent Blue State Romney Supporters

My name is Anthony, and I’m an Independent who supports Mitt Romney. God, that sounds like I’m at a 12 Step meeting. Maybe its because I live in Manhattan and there aren’t a lot of us who have ‘come out’ here, or maybe its because the MSM has convinced us that we must meet in secret and speak in Pig Latin.

Want to know how well the “Arab Spring” is doing when led by the Muslim Brotherhood? David P. Goldman has the latest on that issue. Lots of friction between the public and the Brotherhood over the deaths of Egyptian soldiers, most likely by Palestinian terrorists.

 The only friend the Muslim Brotherhood has left is the Obama administration, which cannot — in an election year — give the Morsi government what it needs the most: enough money to get through the next few months.

Gregg Gutfeld has his own thoughts on the Sandras vs. Rachels.

The Rachels built America.  The Sandras just feed off of it.

The Sandras get calls from this President, the Rachels don’t.

Enviros want to protect everything but, actions really do have consequences. Maybe they should reconsider the Marine Mammal Protection Act?  What a bunch of geniuses they’re turning out to be.

“Nature is out of balance,”said Michael Snell, a former Truro beach commissioner. “Until we start harvesting seals, we are going to keep having these kind of problems.”

Discrimination is alive and well in all areas of our society. Surprisingly, maybe not, the majority of discriminatory practises is among the educated elite. You know, the ones who claim to know what’s best for all of us.

Study results showed that nearly one quarter of the psychologists surveyed in  the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP) admitted they would  discriminate against conservative researchers in awarding grant money, nearly 20  percent would recommend against publishing conservative research and more than  one-third of psychologists surveyed would pass over a conservative in hiring if  an equally qualified liberal psychologist were available.

Thoughts from Charles Krauthammer on the 2012 election and what Romney might consider doing if he actually wants to win it.

The case against reelection

If Republicans want to win, Obama’s deeply revealing, teleprompter-free
you-didn’t-build-that confession of faith needs to be hung around his neck until
Election Day. The third consecutive summer-of-recovery-that-never-came is
attributable not just to Obama being in over his head but, even more important,
to what’s in his head: a government-centered vision of the economy and
society, and the policies that flow from it.

I can only hope Romney is paying attention. Taking the high road like McCain did won’t win the day.

Just for a good laugh, MOTUS  is in fine form, as always, and presents a ‘wide view’ of the many obligations of being FLOTUS.

 Lady M is not getting compensated fairly for her many First Lady
responsibilities! I guess it’s part of the Republicans’ War on
Women.

What’s on your minds today?

  1. The more I see, the more confident I become….BO is out of here in 2012.
    Clinton supporters are still furious….read the comments.
    http://pumapac.org/2012/08/07/howard-we-meant-it-when-we-said/

    A lot of Dems are NOT coming back….we mean it!

  2. Still trying to make a positive into a negative…
    […]“Then I got this phone call, personally, from Mr. Romney, asking if we really wanted to buy the house,” Mr. Stamps, 63, said in an interview the other day at the barbershop he now runs. “I said, yes we did. And he said he would loan us the money. He really helped us when we needed it.”

    Amid the campaign furor over Mr. Romney’s wealth and taxes, the relatively tiny real estate investment — the mortgage generates less than $2,500 in annual interest income, according to his disclosures — has gone largely, though not entirely, overlooked.

    Mr. Stamps said that he and his wife had received calls in recent months from strangers who “seemed to be looking for negative stuff” about Mr. Romney, but that the couple had nothing to say to them.[…]
    Can’t imagine who that might be…./s

      VEry funny video! What a bunch of clueless people.

  3. Breaking the law….
    “The campaign has dispatched David Axelrod to go in Cutter’s place as it’s likely Cutter would face too many question regarding her dishonesty on Soptic and the campaign’s suspected coordination with Priorities USA, which seems ripe for an FEC investigation”

  4. LOL :D….MOOCH is on the trail….talking about “little lazy friend” you need to “bring along” to campaign for BO… 😀

  5. Thanks Lynn ! Anthony blogs over at Peacocks and Lilies and I decided to test the reblog feature with his first post. Here’s a link to his latest:

    P&L is another fine blog full of Romney Democrats 😀 They also have a facebook page and got almost 300 *likes* in just a month.

    • Welcome! 😀
      We need all the help we can get…adding the link
      I hope you didn’t mind me letting Annona know where the nest is now. Still trying to round up the lost birdies. LOL 😀

      • I think I misunderstood Annona, I thought I’ve seen her here already ? Glad you left the link then ! Anytime 😀

        • You’re a good friend… 🙂

    • Hollydolly

      Oops….should have read farther. Posted this above. My apologies.

      • Some things bear repeating, this is one of those things…never be sorry for posting the ugly about either one of the WONS… 😉

      Does Moo have a scar under her eyebrow? Did she have her eyebrows high lighted underneath them? Whatever, her eyebrows look like wiggly snakes. Her normal pattern of speaking is not par with a Harvard graduate. She spent too much time in sit-outs, rather than being well educated.

    Did the Democrats try to hide Obama’s and Holder’s involement in Fast and Furious?

      One of the perks of being, um, older is that you can speak the truth; Americans HATE Muslims, Islam and anyone who supports them. They are still killing Americans and have vowed to kill everyone in the world who do not bow to their Allah. Everyone.

      We only barely tolerate them here in our country, we give them respect as we would any other religious group as long as they obey OUR LAW. But we hate their radical, evil, anti-women, anti-everyone sharia laws and the damage they do to peaceful innocent people.

      Breaking bread with the Islamists in our WhiteHouse is OK, but we don’t like it.

    • He must be fasting too…nothing on his schedule until the Iftar at 8:25.

  8. Great…more of that DREAM act…better buy a gun, the gov won’t help you. BO wants the Hispanic vote

    […]Illegal aliens who have been released from custody between 2008 and mid-2011 have been charged with 16,226 subsequent crimes, including 19 murders, 142 sex crimes and thousands of drunk-driving offenses, drug-crimes and felonies, according to a new report from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.[…]

  9. More scandals coming up…lawsuit filed.
    “A veteran US law-enforcement official has filed a blockbuster discrimination lawsuit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, charging she pushed him aside to make way for a less-qualified woman who’s “enjoyed a long-standing relationship” with the anti-terror chief.
    The lawsuit, which was first reported yesterday by blogger Debbie Schlussel, identifies the woman as Dora Schriro, who was later appointed by Mayor Bloomberg as commissioner of the city Department of Correction, a post she still holds.
    The court papers also allege that Suzanne Barr, Napolitano’s chief of staff at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, has engaged in “numerous” acts of “sexually offensive behavior” intended to “humiliate and intimidate male employees.”

    • Carole

      Notice the nose reubbing and the appearance of being stoned. Yes siree bob, she sure is the product of a southside Chicago public education!

    • Certainly has changed her miserable attitude since then hasn’t she…gone from “just plain middle class folks” to royalty.

  12. Campaign staff grabbing reporters mics….won’t let them interview the public at MO’s speechifying
    “Obama campaign operatives barred me from talking to voters outside the event, to the point of interfering with my interviews and grabbing my microphone.”

    http://www.newsworks.org/index.php/off-mic/item/42734

  13. BO did not understand one word of Ryan’s budget talk…not one word…numbers and facts bore him…

    • francinepink

      Wow, no teleprompter! This man knows his stuff off the top of his head. Notice an angry Obama giving him the middle finger near end of video. Romney can only look better with this man as his choice.

    • How very inspiring & presidential–when you have no answer to a presentation, just flip the presenter off!!

  14. domanii

    Wonderful pick for VP. Obama is gonna have a hard time defending his economic views. Love it!

    • srdem65

      I was ‘in’ before MrRyan, now I’m reall ‘IN’. what a great choice.
      I can’t wait for the VP debate…snort.

      • He’s gonna cream Biden, for sure 😀

    • His speech was wonderful!! the new face of the conservatives, bold, young and really intelligent!! So LOL happy!

  15. Now this really pi**es me off! We have got to get BO out of office!

    […]At issue is an article in the respected Small Wars Journal titled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A ‘Vision’ of the Future.” It was written by retired Army Col. Kevin Benson of the Army’s University of Foreign Military and Cultural Studies at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., and Jennifer Weber, a Civil War expert at the University of Kansas. It posits an “extremist militia motivated by the goals of the ‘tea party’ movement” seizing control of Darlington, S.C., in 2016, “occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council and placing the mayor under house arrest.” The rebels set up checkpoints on Interstate 95 and Interstate 20 looking for illegal aliens. It’s a cartoonish and needlessly provocative scenario[…]

    • srdem65

      I know where this comes from….they are wet-your-pants afraid of the tea party movement.
      It may not be organized, there is no ‘leader’, no headquarters but is a shared state of mind of millions of Americans. They’re afraid that we just might get organized, that we might just say that we’re taking over Washington and returning our country to a constitutional system
      The tea party trashed the 2010 election without a single tea party ad or convention or anything.
      They know the people are disgusted, and more important, they know we are well-armed.
      They absolutely HAVE to disarm America to keep us in line. There is no other reason to disarm law-abiding citizens.

      Martial law is a drastic step, but if any city needs to have military intervention it’s Chicago.
      More people are killed there than in any war-torn country. The law-abiding citizens don’t have firearms, but the criminals do.

      • A determined citizenry is their worse nightmare.
        O/T the lady across from me has stopped wearing her Obama shirt. LOL 😀
        Haven’t seen her in it since I told her about the Dems cutting food programs for the poor to offset MO’s NoKidsFatBehind program…then horror of horrors their food stamps were cut. Of course that didn’t stop her from getting a new tattoo!

        • Carole

          She sounds like a mother of a student I had in the Special Ed Resource Program. Mom couldn’t afford to get her legally blind son’s glasses fix, butt she was fast showing me her new tat and piercing jobs. Grandpa got tired of the kid not being able to see or read even up close, so he got his grandson’s glasses fixed.

  16. soccotash1

    That video of Mooch looks like she is on something,the way she keeps rubbing her nose,and her english is atrocious. About Chicago read it and weep…http://www.crimeinchicago.blogspot.com/

  17. Watched some of the Dems today on Baer and Cavuto….they were almost shrieking over the Ryan pick.

    • Carole

      What slanderious, cut throat bullies the Dim-o-cats have become!

      • the Onion is satire….

    • Missing Laura Bush

      I don’t know anything about the onion. Is this a joke or are there really ads like this against Romney?

      • Francine

        The Onion is well known for their phony news.

  18. Carole

    Watched Ryan and Obutt on the video on Michelle’s Mirror. Old Barry absolutely had no idea what Ryan was saying, he looked bored, ticked off and it looked like he was giving Paul the finger. When Obutt started to talk, he studdered because he can’t have a conversation without a teleprompter. I hope Obutt and Biden look like real morons during the debates.

    • Carole

      Oh, I remember you caught me once before on the Onion blog, Gee how embarrassing!

  19. Golly…here’s MO in Aurora Co…talking to first responders…funny, ha, ha…

      She’s really burning up the jet fuel in her campaigning.

      Good grief, she’s only 40 years old. He’s 82. We can be sure that she signed a pre-nup that gives her something for sticking around. I imagine he has childen older than her.
