Is it Mitt, or is it Hillary?

This is excerpted from an earlier post during the last Presidential primary season. I pulled the quotes from the excellent resource website, “On The Issues.”

See if you can identify the speaker as Mitt Romney, or Hillary Clinton:


1) “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants. People have got to stop employing illegal immigrants. you see loads of people waiting to get picked up to go do yard work & construction work & domestic work.”

2) “We have to have our citizens insured, and we’re not going to do that by tax exemptions, because the people that don’t have insurance aren’t paying taxes.”

3) “I hate the idea of in any way making it more difficult for kids, even those who are illegal aliens, to afford college.”

4) “We need to stand firm on behalf of sensible gun control legislation.”

5) “I also support an assault weapon ban.”

6) “The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they’re not.”

7) “I have never met anyone who is pro-abortion. Being pro-choice is not being pro-abortion.”

8] “We ought to be providing domestic partnership benefits for people who are in homosexual and lesbian relationships.”

The answers:

(1) Hillary, (2) Mitt, (3) Mitt, (4) Hillary, (5) Mitt, (6) Hillary, (7) Hillary, (8) Hillary

So, how did you do? I live in a deep red state so my protest vote against Mitt won’t mean very much.

But for you conservatives who think Mitt is the only way to “win” the country back, take a look at Mitt’s changing stands on the issues that matter. Look closely. No one has forced Mitt to change his mind on them. Just naked opportunism. You decide if it’s worth it to you to elect someone who is the Republican version of Hillary Clinton.

I know what my answer is.

Will Paul Ryan Be A Conservative GPS For Romney?

We can only hope so and pray that Romney will not hit the mute button.

Conservatism wins in Texas

Texas, Ted Cruz, the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and arguably Chic fil A, all had a very big day yesterday. 

For anyone who has doubted that the movement elections of 2010 were anything but a fundamental shift in conservative politics, I give you the Marco Rubio of 2012, Ted Cruz of Texas.  Who would have thought that Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, the odds-on favorite, would lose to this first-time candidate for office.

I didn’t realize until I read it this morning that Ted’s father emigrated from Cuba, making the Rubio comparison even more appropriate.

Glenn Beck rallied over 65000 in Dallas a few days ago, but the media ignored it.  I imagine more than a few of those attendees voted for Ted.

Sarah Palin’s support for Ted solidifies her standing with the small-government-social conservative crowd (as if her cred needed any support).  Given VP Cheney’s “mistake” remark of a few days ago, I would say that the mistake was NOT the selection of Sarah Palin, but the nomination of John McCain.  Perhaps the GOP-e will learn the lesson of yesterday’s Cruz victory:  conservatives will no longer be silent and watch the establishment destroy the country we love.

Oh BTW, today is Chic fil a Appreciation Day.  Go enjoy a chicken sandwich.

It’s Good to be Hated Again

Scott Walker prevails in Wisconsin.

In the end, there was very little doubt. The people of Wisconsin spoke loudly and clearly. In fact, the major news networks had called it before 8:30 p.m.

Deep blue Wisconsin is in play for 2012, as conservatives dealt President Obama and his union allies a staggering blow.

I suppose it sounds like I’m gloating a little bit. Yeah, well suck on it Goonions!


“And reflect that whatever misfortune may be your lot … It could only be worse in Milwaukee.”

And it makes me wonder

English: Newt Gingrich at a political conferen...

Gingrich

“Hey, can you play, Stairway to Heaven?”

And, for the first time in a long while, I didn’t automatically change the channel.

It wasn’t like I had to break out the air guitar or anything.  Besides, it was only a short drive to the polls, and as an official “undecided” voter, I needed some background music to listen to while I was making up my mind.   Santorum or Gingrich, 6 of one … half dozen of the other.  Only thing is, I’ve wanted to vote for Gingrich for President for a long time, and this is the first opportunity I’ve had.  I’ll vote for Santorum if he gets the nomination, and I don’t feel the same way about Romney.

Over the past week, I’ve received a couple of phone calls each from Santorum and Gingrich supporters, but  easily 2 dozen Romney robo-calls.  Each call was a negative info hit about Santorum or Gingrich.  I kept remembering Barbara  Bush last week whining about all of the negative campaigning, and how it is hurting her guy Mitt — but it’s always Romney doing the negative campaigning.

There’s a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure, cause you know sometimes words have two meanings ..

I am tired of it, too.  It got to where would just hang up on the Romney calls.  The talking heads are saying he has outspent  his competition 5 to 1, but it seems a lot more than that. Romney has been all over TV.  Gingrich has been on radio.  Santorum has been on TV, but not that often.

The big question might just be turnout.  I voted around 11 AM and was #28 on the roll.  There was no crowd at all.  Only one other voter at the poll.  If the turnout is as light as my experience indicates, the best organization will be favored, and that means Romney. .

And it makes me wonder …

My prediction for Mississippi:  Romney 39, Gingrich 30, Santorum 21, Paul 9.

Update:  Just got another robo-call from the romney campaign.  If he loses, it won’t be because he didn’t leave it on the court.

RIP Andrew

Whaaaaaaa? I’m completely stunned. Andrew Breitbart has died.

From Fox:

Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight Thursday when he collapsed, his father-in-law Orson Bean said.

Someone saw him fall and called paramedics, who tried to revive him. They rushed him to the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center, Bean said. Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened.

“I don’t know what to say. It’s devastating,” Bean told The Associated Press.

Breitbart had promised to reveal something about Obama’s college transcripts prior to the election. And now, at age 43, of natural causes, Andrew collapses and dies? This is enough to put me in full conspiracy mode.

Florida GOP Debate

Don’t look now, but Newt Gingrich just won another Republican debate. Tonight in Orlando, Florida, he was the clear winner. Newt came across as the smartest and most complete candidate in the room. He even had the best “moment” of all of the candidates.

When asked what he would do to help the country regain its confidence, Newt’s answer was a homerun. He recalled the Ronald Reagan bromide: “When your brother-in-law is out of work, you’re in a recession. When you are out of work, you’re in a depression. When Jimmy Carter’s out of work, the country will be in recovery.” Newt said the defeat of Barack Obama would be the single most important economic stimulus that the country needs.

Rick Perry lost ground tonight. So did the Massachusetts governor, who reminded me again of why I would like to punch him in the mouth. Michelle Bachman’s biggest problem is that she isn’t Sarah Palin. Ron Paul, John Huntsman, and that Johnson fellow somehow think they are running for the libertarian nomination. Sorry, but they were just on the wrong stage. Herman Cain and Rick Santorum had their opportunities, but didn’t change their also-ran status.

Unless Sarah Palin gets in the race, I’m going to have to seriously consider Newt Gingrich for the top spot.

Anyway, that’s the way I saw it. What about you?
