There They Go Again...

Hey Everyone,
  Ya' know, I'm hesitant about writing about Liberal bias in the new media.  It's so old. We all know it's there, we all know it's not going anywhere, and we all have seen it firsthand so why rehash old news?
  Well, maybe I'm a little late in talking about Newt Gingrich's ordeal with ABC News, then John King right off the bat during the CNN debate. But it was just so sleazy, even for main stream media types.
  So, ABC News trots out Mary Anne Gingrich. Mary Anne was married to Newt for 18 years. She claims that Newt wanted an "open" marriage while he was having an affair with current wife Callista.
  Prior to this we were treated to Karen Santorum's ex-boyfriend, a rock on the land that  Rick Perry's family owns supposedly painted with a racial slur, and Michelle Bachmann's migraine headaches. All of these nuggets of information designed to convince the American people that any one of these people, but more over, Conservatives in general, are just not fit for the Presidency.
  At some point, there was a meager attempt to hide it.  But not anymore. The gloves are off Baby, and we are ready to trash Conservatives by any means necessary!
  But when has the line been crossed? When is it too much? Are the spouses and even the children of the candidates over the line? The media certainly wasted no time reporting on a 19 year old Jenna Bush's alcohol possession citation, having a grand old time wondering if she was a "chip off the old block?" How often does CBS, NBC, or ABC report on the illegal immigrant family members of Barack Obama? Don't hold your breath, you might turn blue.
  There is an agenda afoot here. A very sinister one. Do what you have to do. Destroy as many Conservatives, including their families as is necessary. The ends justify the means. Do WHATEVER IT TAKES to help Barack Obama fundamentally transform America.
 To quote a movie line,"There is nothing more dangerous than a fool with a cause."

Silly Season - Let It Begin

Hey Everybody,
  Hope that everybody had a great New Year's, not too much champagne. So I guess it is get down to business time.
  Well, it's here.  All of us political junkies, a.k.a. nerds, could hardly wait for it, but election season has officially begun.  It comes with all of the trappings, polls, predictions, candidates ripping .each other, Karl Rove's dry marker board.  All of the things we have come to know and love.
  It has come with some surprises too.  The just-the-right-moment surge of Rick Santorum.  Just 2 weeks ago, Santorum was polling in single digits, but came in just 8 votes behind Mitt Romney. Ron Paul won't be going anywhere anytime soon.  Because of great organization, Paul finished a strong third.  As Rick Santorum surged, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich dropped in the polls and finished fourth. He has vowed to continue on to try his luck in New Hampshire on Tuesday, where Romney has a 20 point lead over Ron Paul.  Rick Perry  has his sights on South Carolina, and after a dismal last place finish in Iowa, Michelle Bachmann has suspended her campaign.
  While our attentions are trained elsewhere, it seems our old pal President Obama is up to his old tricks.  This past Wednesday, Obama made recess appointments of Richard Cordray, who became the top consumer watchdog, and three members to fill vacant spots on the National Labor Relations Board.  Just one problem, The Senate was technically in session.  We can conclude from this that, A:The President of The United States has not familiarized himself with the governing document of the nation of which he has been elected President, or B: He views the Constitution of The United States as an obstacle to be gotten around.  This would not be the first time that possible Constitutional acrobatics had been tried.
  It is said in every election cycle that,"this is the most important election in our lifetime". This time around, nothing could be more true.  If Conservatives do not fight for the hearts and minds of every American, we run the very real risk of leaving a man in office who believes he is "obligated" to circumvent duly elected representatives of the people whenever he deems it appropriate to do so.  Are other,  more subtle forms of dictatorship far behind? When do they become not so subtle anymore? In the words of White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, "We can't wait".
