Four more years

Do the suckers know what they have wrought?

Probably not, but you can bet your last dollar that obama knows.

“Commander in Chief” shows off on campaign trail sporting military jacket, nametag

I say again, it should be ripped off his body.  He is not worthy to wear it for he is neither military nor commander in chief.

Yesterday in Wisconsin, wearing his Air Force One military jacket with the name tag “Barack Obama, Commander in Chief”
Disgrace!

Well, where was the commander in chief when American citizens needed him?  I think it would go better for him if he were sleeping because the other alternative is, as is reported, he was watching the Benghazi attack from the Situation Room and did nothing.  They called for help and help never came.

The administration keeps stalling, saying there is an on-going investigation into what happened, when it is obvious that is a lie because the scene of the crime is abandoned with documents and other crucial evidence left behind 6 weeks later.

BENGHAZI, Libya — More than six weeks after the shocking assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi — and nearly a month after an FBI team arrived to collect evidence about the attack – the battle-scarred, fire-damaged compound where Ambassador Chris Stevens and another Foreign Service officer lost their lives on Sept. 11 still holds sensitive documents and other relics of that traumatic final day, including drafts of two letters worrying that the compound was under “troubling” surveillance and complaining that the Libyan government failed to fulfill requests for additional security.

When we visited on Oct. 26 to prepare a story for Dubai based Al Aan TV, we found not only Stevens’s personal copy of the Aug. 6 New Yorker, lying on remnants of the bed in the safe room where Stevens spent his final hours, but several ash-strewn documents beneath rubble in the looted Tactical Operations Center, one of the four main buildings of the partially destroyed compound. Some of the documents — such as an email from Stevens to his political officer in Benghazi and a flight itinerary sent to Sean Smith, a U.S. diplomat slain in the attack — are clearly marked as State Department correspondence.Others are unsigned printouts of messages to local and national Libyan authorities. The two unsigned draft letters are both dated Sept. 11 and express strong fears about the security situation at the compound on what would turn out to be a tragic day. They also indicate that Stevens and his team had officially requested additional security at the Benghazi compound for his visit — and that they apparently did not feel it was being provided.

Obama’s unpresidential “horses and bayonets” comment

Obama: “But I think Governor Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed. We have these things called aircraft carriers, where planes land on them. We have these ships that go underwater, nuclear submarines.

Punk.

Pretend I am a consultant…..

We should not allow the democrats to frame the discussion on the coming economic cliff.  They want to, as always, say it is the republicans who are “obstructing”.

I can’t for the life of me understand why the republicans let them get away with this.  Now, you know if I can see through this, I am sure our elected republican representatives can see it, right?  And, Tagg, I hear you are advising your dad……

Their position is:  The republicans want to raise taxes on the middle class and that they want to raise taxes on the “millionaires and billionaires.”

They have been pushing this for a long time and I don’t hear any push back on it from our side.

Explain IF NOTHING IS DONE, they will go up on everybody.

All we have to say is,  No, No, No.  It is the democrats who are willing to watch the taxes on everybody to go up, middle class and all, just to try to get their way.

Say it again:  “If we do nothing, taxes will go up.  Democrats, join us in making sure that does not happen.”  Then stand your ground.

Say it over and over:  If we do nothing taxes will go up.  Ask:  Why do the democrats want taxes to go up on everybody?  All republicans want is to leave the current tax rates in place as they have been for the past 10 years.

Republicans, spend some of that money to run ads day and night in order to get through to a person who is doing something else, who is worrying about how to pay that electric bill or house payment or rent or one who is planning menus around the grocery items on sale with the tv on in the background.  .We don’t rush over to the tv when a political ad comes on and intently focus on it.  This is one reason an ad with just words running across the screen is useless.

But you have to explain it,  Or at least say it.  Just say it.   The average person is busy!  We are working, trying to make a living.  We catch things on the fly.  We hear things while cooking dinner, through the cries of babies, while making the bed or cleaning out the refrigerator.

And what I hear is “we don’t want to raise taxes on job creators.”  That doesn’t cut it.  Take my word for it.  This is falling for the trap the democrats have set.  IT FALLS ON DEAF EARS because we are not rich so this won’t affect us.  Sure, go ahead and tax the rich more – as long as it does not raise MY taxes.

After having the spending power of income going down over $2000 already, we can’t have our taxes going up now.

$2,000 a year is the number that sticks in my mind.  That is a LOT of money to a LOT of people.  I know it is not much to you guys who don’t have to give a second thought to how much a gallon of milk or a gallon of gas costs, at least in a very long time.  When one hears the president say “Mitt Romney wants your taxes to go up  some $2,000 a year,” real fear can strike the heart as we can barely get by as it is.

Drive home the fact that if you take ALL the income of the so-called millionaires and billionaires,  it won’t even run the country for 3 months, and it won’t put one red cent in my pocket.   (I think.  I should have heard that so many times by now that it would be embedded in my head.)

Again:  “This is not the time to raise taxes on anybody!  It is time the democrats compromise and allow the tax rates to STAY AS THEY ARE NOW.  The democrats are willing and, in fact, determined the Bush tax cuts expire if they don’t get their way of raising taxes on the “rich.”  So the democrats don’t really “care”, except about themselves.

Say, “It is time for the democrats to compromise  It is time they act in a bi-partisan way and join republicans in preventing taxes from going up on anybody in January.”

Spend some money and put out ads to run 24 hours a day to drive this home.  It will work.

Okay. Got that off my chest.

Romney for President announces Military Advisory Council

Mitt Romney Press | 17 October, 2012 – 16:34

Location
Boston, MA
United States
Today, Romney for President announced its Military Advisory Council. “I am deeply honored to have the support of so many of our most accomplished military leaders,” said Mitt Romney. “Together we will restore our military might and ensure that America can defend and protect our interests, our allies, and our people, both at home and abroad. I will never forget that the greatest responsibility of an American president is in exercising the role of commander-in-chief. That role is sacred, and when I am president, I will never put my own political interests ahead of our military and our men and women in uniform.” “I’m proud to be supporting Mitt Romney in this critical election about our nation’s future,” said General Tommy Franks, USA (Ret.), Past Commander, U.S. Central Command. “Governor Romney is committed to restoring America’s leadership role in the world. Instead of playing politics with our military, he will strengthen our defense posture by reversing the President’s devastating defense cuts. The fact of the matter is that we cannot afford another four years of feckless foreign policy. We need level-headed leadership which will protect our interests and defend our values with clarity and without apology.” “I consider the unprecedented national debt amongst the five greatest threats to the security of our great nation,” said General James Conway, USMC (Ret.), Past Commandant of the Marine Corps. “And yet, I see no indication the current administration, if re-elected, is intent on changing that trajectory.  Clearly Defense should bear a portion of the burden in order to regain control of our debt, but the idea of massive military cuts — at a time of increased global instability—should not even be in the cards. As I listen to Mitt Romney, I am convinced that he ‘gets it’.”

Disgusting media bias never stops

Just today, I saw these two examples of media bias.  I am sure there are many others, as we are being blatantly or slyly brainwashed in an effort to get obama re-elected.  And, of course, there was the debate which I believe was a staged event, probably with CNN and the  obama campaign in collusion, but no probably about it, Candy disgraced herself in bias.  She was like a mom and obama like a child, crying “Candy, Candy, Candy” when he got backed into a corner due to his lies and deceptions.  And Candy comes to the rescue on cue.

Little Tommy Tucker, Sang for his supper, Ma! Ma! Poor little innocent guy.

I get this image of a little boy tugging at his mommy’s coattails.

But back to these two examples:

Again and again and again, what you always see from our corrupt media is that as soon as one of their Corrupt Narratives turns against them — all of a sudden that Corrupt Narrative suddenly vanishes from the media dialogue. For months, all we heard from our Narrative Gatekeepers was favorability, favorability, favorability. And why? Because it helped Obama.

…..

But we don’t hear a whole lot about favorability anymore, do we?

Why is that?

Here’s why:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has finally cleared what many aides have long seen as his biggest hurdle: A majority of voters now like him.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/10/19/media-Ignores-Romney-Favorability

Next,

Us Magazine writes a story about the dresses worn by Ann Romney and Michelle Obama to the presidential debate.  Their headline reads:

“Ann Romney Wears $1,690 Oscar de la Renta Dress to Presidential Debate”

…..trying to advance the democrat/media hatefulness toward the Romneys for having money.

Yet, Michelle’s dress costs twice as much, $3,290. And that little detail was down in the story and did not rate the headline.

Now, honestly, if an issue is to be made of the cost, common sense would tell you that the one that cost the Most would rate the headline, right?  And besides that, Ann Romney bought her dress with her own money and anyway you look at it, Michelle is using money that came from the American people.

And, oh my god, I just thought of the ridiculous, stupid, childish way in which the obama media and the democrats have seized on a simple phrase about binders to try to find some negative narrative they can blast for days on end.  What an insult to women.  He made a perfectly good example of how he did a good thing in hiring women for the highest positions in his Mass cabinet, and all they can do is talk about binders?

Is there any fairness in the media?  No.  Only corruption.

Candy won the debate

CNN poll showed that obama won by 46 obama/39 Romney.  But on substance and issues, Romney was a clear winner.

Who would better handle the economy:  58 Romney/obama 40

Who would better handle healthcare:  49 Romney/obama 46

Who would better handle taxes:  51 Romney/obama 44

Who would better handle deficit:  50 Romney/obama 36

The whole town hall setting seemed like a grand production to me.  The audience was not undecided but on the obama’s side, as evidenced by the applause when Candy threw her considerable weight around trying to help the president.  The crowd was cold, almost hostile to Romney. This kind of town hall set up has been done before by obama, with liberal plants asking the questions.  It came across as staged and we know the questions were prescreened and preselected by Candy.

In the end, unlike the first debaate, obama got out all the usual talking points but a couple of important questions remain unanswered:

1.  Does he agree with Chu that he wants energy prices to skyrocket.

2.  How many drilling permits has he cut.

3.  Why did he say the attack in Libya was the result of a video for at least two weeks, even  saying so before the United Nations 14 days later.

4.  Why were the Americans at the consulate in Libya left with zero secuirty in spite of begging for protection.

Candy tried.  Her career as a journalist should be over as she was almost out of breath trying to knock Romney off his game.  But then it was known  beforehand that she was and is an advocate for obama.

Why do the republicans agree to all these liberal moderators?  I’d like to see Mark Levin moderate a debate.
