Republican hypocrites….

Every single one of them whining about Romney should be ashamed. How quickly they forget what they supposedly stand for when push comes to shove. Yes, Romney is right to an extent, Obama promises did help to win the day for the Progressives. To chew him out and make a public spectacle of themselves doing it is just wrong. Does anyone actually think the promise of “card check” to the unions and the bailouts of GM and Chrysler didn’t help unionistas decide who to vote for? He “implemented” part of the “Dream Act” for those under thirty to pander to the Hispanic vote, declaring the law was no longer enforceable without benefit of legislation. Obamacare was also a gift that benefits Obama voters. As Keith Koffler at White House Dossier states;

The Obama people are having a good laugh over all this. They know what they did. They know Romney’s right. And they know, believe me they know, cynicism when they see it.

I have news for the R-words, out-pandering the D-words is not going to get it. Pandering is their stock in trade. You of all people should know this. They will always up the ante. While the teeth gnashing continues, the R-words are betraying their own beliefs(?) in a smaller less centralized government and free market capitalism (throw the cronies out). So, not to be outdone by their Democrat counterparts, many in the Republican party play the blame game too.  From the Daily Mail;

Mitt Romney shunned by the Republican Party: Failed presidential candidate  becomes ‘persona non grata’ as officials begin planning for 2016

On Benghazi; The question is this: is the CIA willing to go to the rack on behalf of a White House that is throwing it under the bus?

If you don’t think the D-words will not use sexism and racism as a political club to silence their opponents, think again. Their whine, couched in color and gender, displays the ongoing sexist and racist attitude of the left.  When Obama excoriated Clinton, no one called it “racist” or “sexist”. She had to stand or fall on her own merits in the campaign. It was the “good ole boy network” that called for her to step down. Sonia Sotomayer had to go through Congressional hearings and was questioned extensively, so was Elena Kagan. No one thought that was “racist” or “sexist” or even suggested that theory. But now, it is considered “racist” or “sexist” to question the motives of the Ambassador of the US to the UN over her very questionable comments? Please!

Rep. Marcia Fudge (D.-Ohio), the incoming chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, is accusing Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) of “sexism and racism” because the criticism leveled at U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice for telling the American people that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a video posted on YouTube. Video at the link from Breitbart

As a female, and part of a minority, I find this reprehensible conduct unbecoming a Congress person, no matter race or gender. All this is an attempt to shut down those who find the actions of people in government questionable. It is not in the best interest of the US.

    I point a finger at the RNC and the convention. A small tribute to Ron Paul and his supporters would have gone a long way. I know it’s anecdotal, but I read a quote from a non-voter who supported Paul…”they needed us more than we need them”…so he stayed home. You can’t diss that large a group and expect not to pay a price, IMO.

    • I agree with the point you are making. However, I must say that I’ve never understood the people who stay home on Election Day. People complained about BO for four years and didn’t want him re-elected. But because their candidate did not get the nomination for the GOP they decided to sit this one out, thus handing the Dems a second term. It baffles me that they are willing to ignore the consequence of that decision.

      • Annie's Mom

        A good friend, Vietnam disabled vet, voted for Gary Johnson. I understood he didn’t like Romney, but why throw your vote away? Made no sense to me. I was especially irked with him because he voted for BO the first time…

    • Not just Ron Paul voters…instead of having Rove on night after night touting his creds, they should have inundated all stations they could with minority supporters, more Mia Love, more Marco Rubios, more minority business people (women included) who support smaller government etc;. The Repub establishment never puts their women out there and they should.

    • and this…. lol …looks like I’m not the only one who thinks very little of “the Rove strategy”

      “The GOP establishment remain in a state of denial; they are looking for someone to blame for the fact that “the Rove Strategy” of massive amounts of money means massive numbers votes. But the establishment only has itself to blame for believing in such a flawed strategy, while alienating a whole host of other voters including minorities looking for an alternative to the Barack Obama version of America.”

    When faced with something that needs changed or a difficult decision has to be made, I’ve always been of the type who thinks “what’s the worst that could happen and could I live with that. I didn’t have the option of making the decision of who would lead us for the next four years, but looking ahead at the “worst”, that is MrObama’s re-election, we can do a lot to help things by focusing on the 2014 elections.
    If we can change the makeup of the Senate, we will have a firm hold on the direction of our country. There’s a lot that can’t be changed now, but we’ll have to deal with it.

    I look for a lot of Obamacare to be repealed or changed in such a way as to make it less onerous or punishing. Voters who drank the kool-aide and thought that their lives would be so much better with Obama and now find out that there will be less jobs than before, that the Obamaphones are obsolete, that food stamps won’t buy very much anymore because of inflation and they’re not going to be happy.

    The Repubs who are throwing darts at MrRomney are hurting themselves as a means to distance their views from his. I do believe that the election was “bought” and stolen from MrRomney, but it’s over now. We have to look ahead and try to change what’s wrong with our election process, not commit hari-kari by adopting the Dem party line.

    • Annie's Mom

      Unless we do something about the massive voter fraud, the GOP won’t win another meaningful election…

      • srdem65

        I agree. Like most people, I assume that everyone is honest and trustworthy.
        I would never even consider falsifying a government form, or cheating at the polling place, but sad as it may be, there are many people who think and act that way.

      • 30 Governors says you are wrong. They are the ones who can stop Obamacare and they seem to be doing one heck of a job lately. Fed can’t force the states to set up exchanges, so 17 Governors have opted out. Thrown the Obamacare debaucle back to the Gov.

  3. I think there’s a problem in America right now differentiating between ‘winning’ and ‘success’. Winning is at the moment, it is Lance Armstrong, arms high, crossing the finish line. Success is being able to do it without the help of enhancements. Success is long term, but the country has been dumbed down so long, they can’t see past next Tuesday.
    The campaigning that goes on now gets everyone stirred up about winning! at all costs, without any thought to the consequences of who wins.
    Our country is not a World Series, our political landscape not a sport.

    • You are absolutely right!
      IMHO Politics has become a smutfilled game of oneupmanship. A lot of that can be reflected in the media. They had no interest in Benghazi until the Petraeus “affair” made it more tintillating.

        I feel the same way about the General cheating on his wife as I did when BillClinton admitted to the same; it’s personal and between husband and wife.

        But, then. I’m old and was raised in a different time where private mishaps(?) were only whispered about, not announced on national TV.

  4. More handwringing at the Enterprise Institute
    while I agree “talking to people” is more productive then “talking at them”, the concept of smaller government, less spending, less waste, less government intervention in picking winners and losers in private enterprise is a viable argument to make.

    I’ve been reading your blog since it was Newsbird, never commented though. In my very red state the lines were hours long and every country went for Romney. I;ve never seen anything like the lines. Heard the same from friends in other states. I cannot believe that the #’s showed less voters than for McCain. It’s just not possible. What I do believe is that there was a huge amount of voter fraud in the large cities of the swing states. Not sure that can be overcome. It’s hard to come to grips with the fact that my grandchildren will never know the U.S. the way we did.
    On a lighter note – maybe – where’s Michelle? She appeared election night, then dropped out of sight. It’s not like her to totally disappear. She didn’t go on the Asian trip with Barack; is she off somewhere (expensive) on her own?

    • Sorry, you were stuck in pending. Just got the computer up and running after installing new hardwood floors. I’m glad you came out of the shadows 😀
      Welcome to the nest! 🙂

    • Haven’t seen a thing about MO or the Wee Wons since the trip back to DC after the election. Butt, Christmas is coming up and we know the holidays in HA are also coming up. Get your festive hat on, it’s a sure fire bet she won’t stay out of the media for long. I am sure she’ll be hoppin, skipping, and hooping all over the country, if not the world, soon enough.

      Hi OkieGirl, glad to meet you. Oklahoma? I’ve been through OK many times (I-40) the scenery is beautiful, boring, interesting, the same all at once. The best BBQ I ever ate was in a small mom&pop truck stop in OK.

      As for our MO, I think she’s getting “refreshed” again. 50 is a hard age to hide no matter how many handmaidens one has.

    • Looks like MO had some fun this weekend after all
      “Aretha Franklin says “it was fabulous” to have first lady Michelle Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder attend her show in Washington, D.C.

      The Queen of Soul sang for Mrs. Obama and Holder – as well as for about 3,000 fans at DAR Constitution Hall on Saturday night. Afterward, Franklin said it was great to see her VIP guests relax and “shake their hips a little,” especially after a tough reelection campaign.”

    meant to say every “county”

  7. BO’s office of protocol is seriously lacking….seriously

    […]It is rather embarrassing, as well as sad, that the leader of the free world can’t even pronounce the name of the most famous human rights activist on the planet. Or that he is so quick to appease Burma’s authoritarian regime by calling it “Myanmar”. Barack Obama’s gaffes demonstrate not only a marked lack of attention to detail and a high degree of amateurishness on the part of the White House, but also a disturbing willingness to curry favour with unsavoury regimes.[…]

    • OkieGirl

      Sure – sounds like you’ve been busy!
      Aren’t people in Asian countries very mindful of personal boundaries? If so, wouldn’t she (Aung San Suu Kyi) have been very uncomfortable, if not actually insulted, by his hugs and the kiss. In one picture, she looks like she’s trying to get away. He does have a need to put people in their place and be the most important person in the room. Protocol means nothing to the Obama’s.

      • OkieGirl
      • Both of them are too touchy feely with foreign dignitaries….Asians are not into all that familiarity. For Bo and MO it’s a power trip.

      • Annie's Mom

        Just shows BO has no idea of “personal space”…it’s all about power to him and MO. They both grab the victim and pull them in for a hug…Ugh!
