An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 7 January 2012
There won’t be any Saturday links because….well….I really haven’t been near my computer since I got to Wisconsin. That, and for some reason, Chris keeps talking, and it’s difficult to think. LMBO Oh, hush woman!
Also, considering the fact that I spent 4 days out of 5 driving, from (Texas) and to (Wisconsin), I haven’t gotten a lot of reading done. One of these days, things will get back to as close to normal as I can be. Heh.
The sad part is….I totally zoned the fact that extreme (to me) cold, and damp, has a very unpleasant side affect. It’s called……..PAIN! sigh… Welp, Dr Dimples did say I was going to hate him for the entire winter. Y’know what? He’s right! UGH! Some days, a WHOLE lot more than others. I also forgot that these silly Yankees consider 38 degrees…..SPRING! Odd birds, these cheeseheads.
With Mitt Romney pulling away in the polls, his opponents are looking to knock him off his game during a pair of debates which could represent their best shot at changing up the race before the New Hampshire primary.
A win by Romney in the Granite State would appear a foregone conclusion, considering he’s enjoyed a double-digit lead in the state in virtually every poll since polling began. But while some analysts are calling the primary a battle among his opponents for second place, the field of competitors is keen to at least deprive Romney of a crushing victory Tuesday which could help bolster an image of inevitability going into South Carolina and other contests.
Ya know….I’m getting pretty tired of hearing about the “foregone conclusion” of a win by Romney. I do not know one single person who is a Romney supporter. Not one. Yet, every time I turn on the idjit box, there it is….someone saying that it will be Mitt Romney. Would someone please explain to me why? I mean, seriously, if he isn’t the favored by a mass majority of people, why do we have to settle for a RINO….AGAIN!? Once John McCain endorsed him, there was no question of his RINOism. NONE.
Now, I’ve no doubt he’s a nice guy, and is reasonably intelligent, but I do NOT believe he is the person this country needs right now. I don’t care if the establishment think ‘it’s his turn’. Since when do candidate have ‘turns’??? I grew up believing that it was WE, The People who decided our candidates, although in recent years, it’s become apparent that WE don’t have a say. And that is NOT the way to run a Republic! Evidently, the GOP establishment has forgotten, once again, that conservatism wins!
