Elizabeth Warren’s Disingenuous Claim of Native American Ancestry
Rick Santorum endorsed presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney in an email to supporters sent late Monday night.
The one-time Republican presidential hopeful and former Pennsylvania senator said “the primary campaign certainly made it clear that Gov. Romney and I have some differences. But there are many significant areas in which we agree.”
“We both agree that President Obama must be defeated. The task will not be easy. It will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious. Governor Romney will be that nominee and he has my endorsement and support to win this the most critical election of our lifetime,” said Santorum.
While his backing could shore up Romney’s position with the GOP’s conservative base, some could view it as a lukewarm endorsement of the party’s eventual nominee.
When it comes right down to it, this isn’t about Obama or Romney. This election is about the very survival of the United States. Was Romney my choice? That would be a big fat NO! Will I vote for him in November? Damn skippy I will! Why? Because we will not survive another four years of socialist/marxist rule!
You folks who have decided you won’t vote for Romney because he doesn’t represent everything you wanted in the candidate….stay home! Voting 3rd party, or write in will only get us another four years of complete destruction. If you want the socialists to completely take over, then just use your vote for Obama. Don’t give me that crap about ‘standing on principles’. Standing on principle is great and I’m all for it, but when it comes to this country, you need to get your head screwed on straight, and stand WITH those of us who KNOW we have to boot Obama from the White House. We didn’t get this far down the sewer in one day, and we sure won’t be getting out of it in one election cycle. If giving Obama his pink slip isn’t your goal, then you have lost sight of our real problems, and it ain’t Mitt! Our problem is the GOPer elites, who need to be replaced, and the lame stream media, that needs to relearn the meaning of investigative journalism. IF we stand together, eventually, we just might be able to TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!
Obama has not been a leader. He, and his minions, have basically crowned him king, and kings don’t give a flying flip about the peons that pay his bills.
Socialism Rises Again
Last weekend, the people of France took a sharp turn to the left, and the rest of Europe may be on the brink of rebuking its recent tack toward fiscal responsibility. With Sunday’s election of French Socialist leader Francois Hollande, France has leapt backward toward the policies that have helped sink the continent in a sovereign debt crisis. Disturbingly, the big government platform Hollande campaigned on is all too familiar to the American people, and if the United States is not careful, it could suffer the same fate as its European allies.
Hollande sailed to victory by appealing to an electorate dissatisfied with having to face necessary cutbacks, proclaiming that he is “proud to have been capable of giving people hope again.” That brand of hope called for a change from President Nicolas Sarkozy’s relatively conservative policies — in his first term, Sarkozy worked to reduce the number of public sector employees, eliminate the 35-hour work week, reform the university system and cut taxes.
Today is primary day in Wisconsin to see which moronic, lying, cheating, self centered Democrat (but I repeat myself) will be Scott Walker’s opponent in the ridiculous, and totally union thug run recall election. Will it be Tom Barrett, who lost to Walker in 2010 by a 52-47 margin? He seems to be leading in the polls. Possibly Kathleen Falk, another hack that has, apparently, never lived in the real world, residing in the Land of Oz, aka Madison, running it into the ground as county executive.
Isn’t it odd that since Walker has been in office, the unemployment rate has dropped? What happened to all those morons shouting at the Capital about how people were going to lose their jobs? From 7.6 to 6.8 (Mar ’11-Mar ’12). It helps if your state has a business friendly atmosphere, which Walker has been trying to create. Many school systems have been able to actually SAVE money through Gov. Walker’s budget reforms. Unfortunately, the BIG union districts failed miserably. Many teachers ended up losing their jobs.Why? Well, let’s just say that selfish union thugs don’t give a damn about what’s best for the kids that they are entrusted to ‘educate’. Wait a minute! Isn’t that what the morons who banged drums and behaved like animals in the Capital said Walker’s budget would do? Cost teachers their jobs? It appears they are just as stupid as they appeared on the idjit box.
In the long run, this whole recall BS isn’t about ‘children suffering’, or job loss. It’s about union power. Plain and simple. The years of Dopey Jim Doyle put the state into a financial disaster that only a person of strong character, and TRUE concern for the state could pull it out of, yet the unions have spend a fortune spreading the most absurd lies about the man. And unfortunately for Wisconsin, the ill informed have bought into the crap being spewed. You hear utter nonsense about how the Koch brothers bought Scott Walker. Excuse me while I clean off my monitor. Spewing coffee from laughter y’know. Who is buying whom? Well, let’s look, shall we?
Yep! You Wisconsin union members are getting the shaft! Is this why you pay your dues, voluntarily or forced? I always thought those unions dues were for the members benefit, NOT the top echelon who want more and more power. But don’t forget, they also use the money you work for, and pay into as dues, for resorts trips (and let’s not forget the resort that was/is? owned by the fattest union of all)….not for you, who actually earned the money, but for those who having been sucking the life out of the U.S. economy for decades. Think Detroit.
Your head honchos are living high off the hog from your money, and yet, you continue to get out there and make total jackasses of yourselves…for THEIR benefit, NOT yours! Please note the area where your dues is being spent. Politics. To say that the Koch’s are pouring money into politics is down right laughable. More than half a BILLION dollars compared to 12 million over the course of, what….23 years? In one state? Come on people, snap out of it! I know you can’t all be that damn ignorant! Or, maybe you can. I’ve seen some of the comments made by the leftard union thugs. Logic does NOT enter into the conversation….only talking points and hysteria. My goodness. Grow up!
If Wisconsinites really love their state, as so many claim, then why on earth would you want to destroy it by electing another Dopey Doyle (totally owned by unions, especially WEAC). Is it so much to ask for teachers, and other government employees, to actually contribute their own money, instead of the taxpayers, to their own health care and retirement? Government employees work for the people. The people spoke when they elected Scott Walker. Get over it! Stop throwing 2 year old tantrums! If you aren’t happy with something, then go about it in the proper manner, instead making asses of yourselves, and showing the entire world just how totally ignorant, selfish, and childish Americans are…..especially UNION states. Get over your gimme mentality…it is NOT all about YOU! And you are NOT entitled to diddly! Especially not OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY! But then, that’s the way of the communists, isn’t it.
This election isn’t just about the survival of Wisconsin. No, this election is about the survival of the United States. Governor Walker has brought Wisconsin back from the brink, and the rest of the country needs to follow in his footsteps…not the footsteps of Lenin and Stalin! Scott Walker is the best thing to happen to Wisconsin in a VERY long time! Use YOUR brain, not the union/commies’!
