An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Archive for 25 April 2012
Once again, our candidate was selected for us. Now, I know there are some who are going to get all bent out of shape, claim to be standing on their ‘principles’ and all that. Well, I would ask….do your principles include making the country suffer through another four years of Barack Hussein Obama?
Look, no conservative, including me, is happy about this candidate. Ok, Romney is a good guy, and has some good qualities, but he isn’t what any REAL conservative would consider a first choice. Be that as it may, he is who we will need to support to start our nation on it’s way to healing. Note…I said ‘start’. To get anywhere, you always have to take a first step. Getting rid of Obama is the first step. Who replaces him is important, but not nearly as important as taking away all the power he has usurped for himself.
So, that being said….how ’bout we join together to achieve the goal of ridding the nation of that Marxist? K?
When I first met Bob Corker, I thought, perhaps, he really was a conservative. Well, compared to Lamar Alexander, he is…but that’s not saying a whole lot. It’s been over a year since I have heard anything about Corker’s primary opponent….Zach Poskevich….ANY WHERE! Gee, I’m SO shocked. /snark Wouldn’t you think this would be something that the state and local news would cover once in a while?
Apparently, Mr Poskevich is going to be in the neighborhood. He was around today, but since I wasn’t aware, there’s not much point in posting what’s already past, is there.
Pray tell, why is it when anyone comes to Hardin County, they have to schedule their visit before some people are even functional?? Sheesh! Well, who knows….maybe I’ll be up and about, and take stroll over that way to see what he has to say.
Newt Gingrich plans to formally leave the Republican presidential race next Tuesday, senior campaign aides told Fox News, after struggling for months to turn around his sagging bid for the White House.
The former House speaker will “more than likely” endorse Mitt Romney when he makes his announcement to either suspend or end the campaign, a source said.
The decision comes after Gingrich huddled with senior advisers following the five primaries Romney swept on Tuesday night. Romney’s victories made it virtually impossible for Gingrich to secure the 1,144 delegates needed for the Republican nomination.
Ok, so we’re stuck with Romney. He obviously wasn’t ANY conservatives first choice. Come to think of it, he wasn’t any conservatives second choice either, but as per the norm with D.C. RNC elites, and the media, they picked our candidate for us, and now we are stuck with him. I’ll vote for him. I won’t be happy, but I will do it. We MUST remove Obama from office, and hopefully, start criminal proceedings on his entire administration.
Now, my question about Newt is this….why wait until next Tuesday? I mean, he’s never been the top guy through all the primary processes. Ok, he did have a couple of good nights. Huckabee won 6 primaries, but had the smarts to know that the establishment was against him, and pulled out. I’m really surprised Newt has lasted this long. Sad that someone so obviously MORE intelligent than Obama won’t be able to debate him. I would have paid to see him wipe the floor with the Teleprompter King. Oh well. I wasn’t a huge Newt supporter, but I do like him.
Nope, I was for Herman Cain, Michelle Bachman…until she started getting on my nerves, and Rick Santorum. Romney is just the latest in a long line of ‘it’s his turn’ RNC flunkies, made up of more RINOs that even we can imagine.
The alternative to Romney? Four more years of Obama. we can NOT survive as a nation with any more of his ridiculous failed policies. He is bankrupting the nation, with the aid of Congress of course. No, our mess doesn’t fall squarely on his head, but as Truman said, “The buck stops here!” And Obama’s buck is always being passed along to someone else…mostly Bush. Inherited? Pfft! It may have been out of sorts, thanks to the two years of Dem control of Congress, but then along comes the community organizer and he managed to organize our country into total chaos.
So, I’ll thank Newt for his efforts, and hope he’ll have a place at the table in the NEW administration come next November/January 20, 2013, along with Rick Santorum. Ron Paul would make a pretty good Treasury Secretary.
There’s nothing like an uninvited guest on a regular basis. I just happened to glance out the kitchen nook’s window, and caught a snippet of some color that is not part of the deck. Yep…there he was…all snuggled up and comfy. Once he got a look at me looking at him, he evidently thought I was going to come tearing after him. Pfft! This ol’ woman doesn’t go rushing off after stupid birds on only 4 hours of total sleep. In other words, I’m flippin’ tired! And I’m really tired of chasing those darn birds!
I noticed that Mr Peacock was all by his lonesome. Where was the Mrs? No where in sight!
The way I’ve figured it…as long as they stay on the back deck, where they can no longer do damage, we won’t have a problem with them. They seem to like our deck, snuggled up in the shade. Once they go around to the front, where we are working hard to spruce the place up, and start their dance of destruction, we WILL have a problem, and eventually, will deal with their invasion!
But I STILL HATE THOSE FREAKIN’ BIRDS!
I wonder if Trayvon Martin’s parents, who seem rational, believe these types of crimes ‘honor’ their son’s memory? I’m fairly sure race baitors, Sharpton and Jackson, and even Obama believe it does, since none of them have bothered to speak out. Says a whole lot about them, doesn’t it. I’m fairly sure Dr Martin Luther King Jr would be sickened by such actions. The mob mentality! These blacks who are attacking whites are no better than the KKK, they are just a different color, and instead of white sheets, they wear hoodies. No difference at all on the inside.
Since the job of serving the people’s best interest is too difficult for the Democrats in the Senate to handle, it would be best for them, and our nation, if they went home…..quietly. We wouldn’t want them to hurt themselves by doing the job they were elected to do, all the while, being paid a pretty good sum in salary and perks. I think we can solve some small financial problems…by firing the lot of them. Seems the Democrats are to lazy to do more than collect their paychecks and whine about Republicans, who are actually trying to DO something to resolve the issues.
What’s the Senate Thinking?
April 29 marks the third year in which the U.S. Senate has not passed a budget — a staggering dereliction of duty, particularly given the country’s near-$16 trillion debt. But that’s not the Senate’s only blockbuster failure under the leadership of Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). From spending to jobs to energy policy, the Senate has totally dropped the ball, leaving one to wonder, “What’s the Senate thinking?”
But it’s not just a matter of a simple failure or benign neglect, like forgetting to take out the trash. The way some in the Senate are behaving is equivalent to buying a dog but then deliberately choosing not to feed it. These men and women sought elective office, won a seat in the Senate and now have the power to take action to confront America’s problems. But under the leadership of Majority Leader Reid, they’re making the choice not to do so.
