    Quote of the Day – Rand Paul Edition 

    “He ought to explain to the Pope why he is telling businesses in America they can’t remain true to their faith and stay in business.”

    Rand Paul and the upcoming meeting between President Obama and Pope Francis.

    I would love to be a fly on the wall during that conversation, wouldn’t you?

    Rand Paul and the Filibuster 

    I really do hope that you watched at least a little of that last night.  It was epic.  While it certainly didn’t hit the historic lengths that others have over the years, it was still darn good.

    I mean how often do you hear the federalist papers read on the senate floor?  I was literally swooning while listening to Shakespeare and the Federalist Papers by Ted Cruz. Oh my.  I also got my tweet read by him as well!! LOL.  I was so proud.

    I really hope that all homeschoolers out there used this as a Civics lesson.  I can’t imagine anything better to teach our children about how the government should work.

    Brennan will be the next CIA Director, but that wasn’t the point of what he was doing.  The point is the limits of the executive branch and protecting the fifth amendment.  It is amazing to me that even more people in this country are not up in arms about this.  Do we really want any president to have that kind of power?  Do I think it is likely that a president would use a drone to kill an American citizen?  No, I don’t.  But that doesn’t mean that it is impossible nor does it mean that we should give the power to one person just because we think they would never use it.

    This was one of my favorite moments:

    I was also very happy to learn that he had some support from interesting places;

    1. Sen. Cruz reading Tweets from all of you meant a lot to me. Protecting the Constitution is everyone’s fight.

    Code Pink was tweeting along, as well as John Cusack:

    Good question“@cenkuygur: Up to 8 Senators now joining the Rand Paul . Where are the so-called progressive Democratic senators?”

    For gods sake where are democrats ?? “@democracynow: Rand Paul: Obama Admin Response Drones “More Than Frightening” http://owl.li/itdHI 

     

    So Rand was able to make some strange bedfellows.  Which is exactly what the GOP needs. They need someone to stand up and talk about issues that should be important to all Americans.  Civil Liberties affects us all, and the idea that our government may be taking them away should be a concern to every American.

    One of the very best thing that I thought Senator Paul did last night was the never attacked the president personally.  He stayed on the issues.  This is another lesson that many others in the GOP and the conservative movement need to learn.  Personal attacks are a turn off and unproductive.

    I was proud last night.  Senator Paul did us all proud.

    Here are some other highlights:

      Obama Wants To Be Next Pope

      WASHINGTON, DC – Sources close to the White House have learned that
      Barack Obama is planning to run for the office of Pope when the
      College of Cardinals convenes to elect a successor to ailing Benedict
      XVI at the end of this month.

      Calling on the promise of Equality for All, Obama is said to firmly
      believe that the time has come for a non-Catholic to occupy the
      Vatican’s highest office.

      Foreseeing a looming citizenship issue, he states that he has
      discovered an Italian birth certificate that proves he was born in
      Rome before he was born in Kenya. “That Hawaiian birth certificate
      never has been worth what I paid for it anyway,” he noted.

      Continuing, he concluded, “And there’s no way that a handful of
      cardinals could be more expensive to buy than 10 million voters in
      Michigan.”

      Further questions should be directed to Obama’s Papal Campaign
      Manager, Abdul Azeem Khan.

    No, Ron Paul Fans Aren’t Cult Like 

    Doesn’t this remind you of this cult of personality thing from a few years ago?

      For the first doll, er, action figure, to be politically correct, there should be an “I” between the R and the P.

    • Ronald Williams 9:31 PM on 01/24/2012 Permalink | Reply

      The only way the inventor of those makes his money back on the idea is if Ron Paul buys them all for his rabid following and gives them out to them…you know, The same way he buys them all tickets and sets up the straw polls for himself. What a joke!! I wish I had a couple hundred out here that I could sight in my M4 with.

        My thought too !

        The second doll, in the oversized suit, is the most realistic ! (Sorry proof, I couldn`t be PC about the doll)

          Of course, the Obama doll should have been an empty suit!

            Indeed, but do you put his name on it, or just make it too small to fit any other doll ? Or both ?!

                Does the tin foil hat come included or sold as an accessory ?

    Iowa Predicitions 

    For what it is worth, here are my predictions for tomorrow’s caucus in Iowa.  


    While Ron Paul has been falling in the polls over the past week, I still believe he will pull out the victory, but by a small margin.  The reason why is his supporters are loyal to a fault.  They are organized and energized.  They will show up tomorrow night no matter how much snow is on the ground or how cold it is.  No other candidate has that sort of energy behind him.  


    Sadly, Romney will come in second.  My thoughts on Romney becoming the nominee are no secret.  Yuck.  But I do believe that it is inevitable at this point.  I will give his campaign credit where credit is due.  Placing in the top three in Iowa is to paraphrase Biden a BFD.  Romney is not the type of candidate that normally does well in Iowa.  The largest part of the republican party are very social conservative.  


    Santorum will be the real stunner of tomorrow.  He will have a top three finish.  The problem is that he put all his eggs in the Iowa basket,  and not getting a real return on it until now.  He has no money and very little organization moving forward.  New Hampshire is only 8 days away.  Now Santorum is the type of candidate you would expect to do well in Iowa, but not in New Hampshire.  He lacks any clear economic policy of consequence, so he will not get traction moving forward.  I expect him to drop out right around South Carolina.  


    Perry will finish in the top 4.  He also seems to be catching fire again.  He also has social conservative creds that fit well with the average GOP’er in Iowa.  Unlike Santorum, his campaign is still well funded, and he has real plans for the economy and shrinking government.  So he can still catch fire down the road.  He will do well in South Carolina as well.  


    Newt’s star has faded.  He has little money and his inability to get on the ballot in Virginia and Missouri have shown the cracks of his campaign when it comes to discipline and organization.  As late as 10 days ago he didn’t have sponsors to speak for him at every voting location.  He may not still.  Ultimately, people want to vote for a winner and the person who is most likely to run a good general election campaign.  Newt ain’t it.  If he manages to get to Super Tuesday, he may be able to pick up some steam and give Romney a run for his money, but does he have the money to last that long?  Not likely.  


    Bachmann will finish dead last (Huntsman is not competing in Iowa) and will be dropping out of the campaign within the next 7 to 10 days.  I have said all along she wasn’t in it to win it.  She had something to prove to the leadership of the congress who didn’t back her desire for place at the leadership table.

      Actually, Rick Santorum has also been pretty darned organized in New Hampshire AND South Carolina and has made many trips to both places in the past year. He’s been to these places more than most of the other candidates, you probably just don’t know about it because until very recently, everybody but a handful of us bloggers has been ignoring him completely.

    The GOP Fox News Google Debate 

    Ok, first, the debate was way toooooooooo long. 

    I personally feel that Perry did better.  I am not sure that is a popular belief though.  He still did some damage to himself tonight with his answers on in-state tuition and immigration.  I feel that as a governor of a border state his view is different from others.  He has a very long border with Mexico and the economy of his state is very intertwined with immigrants be it legal or illegal.  I do not agree with in-state tuition for illegals.  Is it a deal breaker? Not really because that is not a federal issue, that is a state issue.  So as president it wouldn’t have anything to do with him.  I also do agree with him that the policies that will lead to fixing our porous borders have to be done on the federal level and will require boots on the ground. 

    Newt is a smart man and a good debater.  But I do feel this was his weakest performance yet.  He could potentially be a good VP candidate.  Can you imagine him debating Joe Biden?  That would be classic.

    Michele Bachmann did a better job with her answer on Gardasil this time around, but too little too late.  She did nothing to help herself today and her candidacy will not lead to the nomination.  She does look fabulous in red though. 

    Ron Paul did a very good job tonight.  I agree with him on many fiscal issues and the rights of the states.  He didn’t answer many questions on foreign policy so that is a help with many in the republican gop base, as that is where he loses much of his support. 

    Rick Santorum is another very good debater.  He also would make a strong VP candidate.  But he did nothing that will bring him to the upper tier of candidates. 

    I was happy to see that Fox decided to include Gary Johnson.  I have felt is was very unfair to include Huntsman and leave out Johnson.  He did nothing to help himself.  He will fade into oblivion after Iowa, if he makes that far. 

    Romney again proved that he can debate on the issues.  I don’t like his answers on Romneycare, mainly because they are not even truthful.  To me he really hurt himself with the GOP base by going back to his answer about an executive order to give waivers on Obamacare.  That will not solve the problem.  It must be repealed on the legislative level otherwise the feds will still be required by law to fund it.  But part of his plan in these debates is to do no harm, and he did accomplish that. 

    Huntsman gave some good answers, but he does stray from conservative principles and that is a deal breaker for me.  But he held his own tonight. 

    Hands down the winner of tonight’s debate was Herman Cain.  He sharpened his answers, he has done his due diligence on the issues and his 9-9-9 plan is something that I could get behind.  I don’t like everything about it, but it is a start.  He will get more people to notice him and will more than likely drive some cash flow to his campaign.  He is a likable man and has a compelling and very human life story.  General election voters like that.  I looked up the stats on the blog and see that some hits have come in where he stands on the issues, so he did himself some good tonight.  I personally believe that the best he can hope for is the VP slot and I do believe that he would fill that role well.  I firmly believe that the job of the VP during a general election campaign is to be the attack dog, and he will do that very well.  He is an articulate man who can draw a crowd in.  I have seen him speak three or four different times and it is something to watch live.
