An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Around 11:15 this morning, Jr and I were sitting here, discussing the Constitution, when my phone rang.Â “Aren’t you coming to the lunch?”Â Lunch?Â I hadn’t even had breakfast yet, and she was talking about lunch?Â What lunch?Â “Bob Corker is going to be at the Uptown, which isn’t the Uptown anymore.”Â Uh huh.Â And I was suppose to know about this how?Â I thought about it for a second, and decided it would be a good learning experience for Jr.Â We threw ourselves together in record time, and headed into Savannah.
Senator Corker is a lot cuter in person than he on the idjit box or in pictures.Â Â One of the things he said echoed Greenspan.Â The GOP deserved to lose in ’06, not because of Iraq, but because of the out of control spending that started early in the Bush presidency, and even before, during Clinton’s administration.Â He’s right!Â That being said, I hope the Republicans remember this next year!
The only thing I had a problem with was when he brought up the health care issue.Â It seems even he has a ‘plan’.Â I haven’t read it yet, but from the way it sounded, even given a ‘tax credit’, I don’t like it.Â Why on earth should anyone pay for someone else’s health care?Â Ok, like I said, I honestly don’t know what his plan is, but my thought….get the gubmint OUT of the health care business.
Other than that, it was a very pleasant afternoon, and I got a hug!Â
