    A Night at The Grammy’s 

    While this is a little late to the party, I have been seeing all the talk of what went on at The Grammy Awards on Sunday night.  Satanic rituals performed onstage by a woman who was raised in a Christian conservative home, the mass wedding performed by Queen Latifa, and Jay-Z and Beyoncé performing Drunk in Love together on stage.

    I don’t really expect anything different from Katy Perry.  It has been obvious for quite some time that she has rejected the values that her parents believe in.  That is her prerogative.  What I find insulting about it is the fact that she feels the need to publicly mock it, doing so in front of the artists who were there to see if they won awards for Gospel and Christian categories.  At least one artist got up and walked out.  Ms. Perry has the right to live her life anyway she chooses to do so, but somehow I have this feeling that she really isn’t a devil worshipper and that wasn’t done to get her own particular point of view across.  It was done to make people who are questioning their own belief systems to feel ashamed that they may have the audacity to think that Christianity is a good thing.  A person who is firmly set in a Christian lifestyle may be insulted by the performance, but they don’t question their belief.  They simply shake their heads in disbelief and dismay.

    Queen Latifa, and ordained minister of some kind, performed a marriage ceremony for 30 or so couples.  Some of these couples were of course same-sex couples.  Now, I would say this if all the couples were heterosexual.  The Grammy Awards is no place to get married.  This wasn’t about making a lifetime commitment to another, it was about proving a political point.  That gay couples love just as much as same-sex couples.  I have never said they didn’t.  A wedding and/or marriage ceremony is about is two people making a commitment to each other; for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, to remain faithful and loving for the rest of your lives.  Most people do decide to celebrate that commitment in front of their families and loved ones.  Others do it more privately.  The vast majority of people don’t decide to do it because they want to the world to see their political viewpoint.  That makes a mockery of the thing that gay marriage advocates say that they are trying to accomplish.  Simple equality and the right to commit themselves to a person that they love.  What is so odd about it is that some of the lyrics that were being played out that night even talked about how marriage is more than a simple piece of paper.  If you want equality than stop acting like everyone in the world must approve of your marriage.  I have news for you, not everyone approves of all kinds of marriages.  There have been marriages that have been looked down upon since the beginning of marriage and that isn’t likely to end anytime soon.  You don’t need to me to like what your choices are in order for them to be the right choice for you.  I am never going to approve of gay marriage and that doesn’t make your feelings and your commitment any less valid in your own life.  My religious beliefs tells me that it is wrong.  The sooner the activists get that the better off we will all be.  But of course, that would hinge upon it really being about just marriage, when for many it is not.

    Now we can move on to Jay-Z and his lovely bride Beyoncé.  She was prancing around on stage barely dressed and moving her body in a salacious manner singing a song that included the lyrics “I can’t keep my fingers off it baby, I want you”.  You know, I don’t really need to know what goes in the bedroom of any other couple.  I really don’t.  It isn’t something that interests me at all.  I have read two opposing views of this performance.  One from the very left leaning Think Progress that is basically saying that conservatives should jump at the chance of having this couple be the spokesmodels for marriage, because they make it look like fun.

    This may not be the vision of marriage conservatives intended to try to promote. And it’s absolutely a more aspirational, exciting good than the idea that marriage will discipline wayward men or provide support for women who can’t manage economically on their own. But if conservatives want to sell Americans on marriage, maybe they have to talk more about the bliss half of wedded bliss, to think about the desire part of making marriage desirable. And maybe the entertainment industry that Douthat’s singled out as the enemy of marriage has something to add to the case for marital happiness. If marriage is a product that conservatives desperately want to sell, the smartest thing they could do right now is to hire Beyoncé and Jay-Z as a product spokescouple.

    Now I am far from the spokesperson for every conservative nor do I pretend to be an expert on marriage.  But I can think of no conservative that thinks that sex within the realms of a marriage is bad.  After all conservatives, especially of the social variety, tend to have much larger families.  Something must be going on in order for those babies to be coming along.  The difference is that we don’t like talking about it publicly nor do we think that it is appropriate viewership for our young children for a scantily dressed woman making provocative movements while using euphemisms about a surf board.  I also am unclear of the conservative message that women should get married because they can’t manage on their own.  Now the data is clear, the majority of children living in poverty are products of a single family home.  When you are married before you have children the chances of those children living below the poverty line decreases and not just a little.  That doesn’t mean that conservatives are saying that women should get married simply because they need a man to support them.  You have a 70% chance of lifting yourself out of poverty if you follow three very simple things, graduate high school, do not get married before the age of 21, and do not have children out-of-wedlock.  The left leaning Brookings Institute didn’t like these findings, but the finding are there nonetheless.  That is a far cry from saying that you must marry in order to support yourselves as women.  There are plenty of women who can support themselves and their children financially without the help of man, but that doesn’t mean that they give a strong base for that child.  Two active parents is better for children to thrive.

    I am not going to get into passing judgement on the marriage of that supercouple.  That is something that is between them.  He knew she was performer when he married her and apparently he has no issues with the whole “sex sells” part of her job.  He is obviously fine with it so it isn’t up to me to say that it is wrong in all instances.  What I don’t like is that being told that is what I am supposed to aspire to.  Sorry, but no.  In my relationship there isn’t a great deal of jealousy going on, thank God.  But somehow I don’t think that me shaking my ass in a barely there outfit is part of the long-term game plan for a happy and successful relationship.  It also isn’t the best role model for young children either.  But that is just some prudish conservative talking.

    Slippery Slope of Liberalism Part 8 

    Most have heard of the new hero of the left, Wendy Davis, who successfully did a 13 hour filibuster to stop some additional laws on abortion.  These laws by the way wanted to, in part, make sure that abortion clinics are close to a hospital, the doctor performing the abortion has staff privileges at that hospital, and that the clinics are up to par when it comes to safety and cleanliness.  The horror.

    Speaking at National Right to Life Convention Rick Perry said this:

    “Who are we to say that children born in the worst of circumstances can’t grow to live successful lives?  In fact, even the woman who filibustered the Senate the other day was born into difficult circumstances. She was the daughter of a single woman, she was a teenage mother herself. She managed to eventually graduate from Harvard Law School and serve in the Texas senate. It is just unfortunate that she hasn’t learned from her own example that every life must be given a chance to realize its full potential and that every life matters.”

    This is being viewed by the left as an attack.  An attack?  He complimented both her and her mother for the bravery of bringing a child into the world under what many consider difficult circumstances.  This woman managed to graduate from an ivy league school even though she was “punished” with a baby.

    This is what the left has done with life.  It has been minimized to the point that even complimenting a woman is viewed as an attack.  Yesterday on twitter a young woman who described herself as an “intellectual progressive” compared a baby in the womb to both a tape worm and a parasite.  She has since deleted her account on twitter, but there is plenty of evidence of it still around.

    Is it any wonder that young people all over this country have no real sense of the value of life?  A 23-year-old professional football player has now been charged with murder allegedly over a “conversation”.  He threw away a successful career doing something that little boys all over the country dream of when they are showing up at pop warner on a Saturday morning.  We hear stories about people being killed over a leather coat, or a pair of Air Jordans, or any number of other material items that really have no meaning next to the life of a human being.  Yet, it happens over and over again.

    I have said in the past that language matters.  I do believe that.  I think this is confirmation of my point.  This law was designed to make women safer during the abortion procedure.  Yet it is attack as a war on women.  Wanting to make sure that other women are not confronted with another Dr. Gosnell is somehow not only bad, but damaging to women.  Wanting to make sure that a woman is close to hospital in cases of an emergency is as well.  Women do die during botched abortions.  It isn’t as unusual as the left would like people to believe.  Yet, trying to ensure that women have access to adequate medical care in cases of emergencies is part and parcel of the “War on Women”.

    One of the lines you hear often about abortion is Safe, Legal, and Rare.  Women have bought into this farce by burying the stories of Gosnell, by not talking about how some states don’t have legal standards that would have them as clean as a  clinic where plastic surgery is done.  Do most people in this country even understand that simple bar is fought tooth and nail by many on the left?

    While people who are pro abortion will say that I am stretching, but I am sorry I am not.  Life has been devalued in our society to the point that saying that a teenage girl who chose to not only give life to her child, raised her on her own and still managed to make something out of her life is an attack.

    Wendy Davis shows that a having an unplanned pregnancy, even in your teenage years, is not the end of your life.  You can succeed and still follow your own goals.  Her life was most likely more difficult, but I am sure when she looks at her child, she sees nothing but the same thing a mother who wanted to get pregnant feels.  Love, a never-ending and very deep love.

      You are right, as was Rush when he said several years ago, “Accurately describe a liberal and s/he will take it as an attack and go ballistic !” As you have well pointed out, just accurately describe what libs / progs want to do, are doing, it will be taken as a personal attack. Try to emplace measures to protect women, you are waging a war against them.

      The War On Women is waged by the left and by muslims, not those of us on the right who merely wish to love, honor and protect women !

    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.

    Some Thoughts on Virginia’s Primary Ballot Failures 

    As a resident of Virginia I will say that I am not at all pleased to have two choices and only two choices.  That said, there are very clear rules in place and every candidate had the same access to those rules.  Three candidates never even bothered to put in signatures for review.  I suppose they just never got enough to make it worthwhile.  One of those candidates, Rick Santorum, lives in Virginia.

    Now, our Lt. Governor Bill Bolling is one of the Chairs for the Virginia for Romney campaign.  That has led to some charges that he was rooting for this and possibly there was corruption involved.  Anyone involved in the republican party in Virginia could have gone to help verify the signatures.  I myself was sent an email with an invitation to attend and volunteer to help verify all the signatures.  There is no proof whatsoever that Bolling had anything to do with the outcome.  It is very unseemly to make these charges without any evidence to support them.  Bolling has already announced his bid for the Governorship in 13, I don’t think he would take the chance of ruining his chances to help Mitt Romney get elected.  He has had his eyes on the governor’s chair for quite some time.  The ballots were verified by mainly volunteers.  The likelihood that all of them were corrupted to push the outcome in any one direction is very hard to believe.

    Gingrich has made the following statement:

    The Gingrich campaign responded that “only a failed system” would disqualify Gingrich and other candidates. It said Gingrich would pursue an aggressive write-in campaign in Virginia.

    The law is very clear in Virginia, there is no option for a write in campaign.  While I am sure that people can still write in a name, it will not be counted.  This law has been in place since 1999.  This will be the fourth presidential election since these laws have been implemented.  In this time no other major candidate has failed to get on the ballot.  Here is a list of people who qualified for the Virginia ballots in the past:

    2008 – Barack Obama, Dennis Kucinich, Hillary Clinton, Bill Richardson, Joe Biden, John Edwards; Ron Paul, John McCain, Fred Thompson, Mike Huckabee, Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney.

    2004 – Al Sharpton, John Kerry, Wesley Clark, Howard Dean, Joe Lieberman, John Edwards, Dennis Kucinich, Dick Gephardt, Lyndon Larouche.

    2000 – Alan Keyes, Gary Bauer, George W. Bush, John McCain, Steve Forbes.

    So Newt wants me to believe that the system is broken even when the like of Lyndon Larouche or Al Sharpton can get the necessary signatures?  That doesn’t pass the smell test to me.   Does it to you?

    This comes down to one thing and one thing only.  They lack the organization necessary to run a national campaign.  Running for president is very difficult.  As it should be since it is a very difficult job.  Even Jill over at Pundit and Pundette; a huge Perry supporter, asked if he was just winging it.  Perry turned in sheets that were not notarized.  A very simple and free thing to do.  It is also is clear indication that no one on Perry’s staff bothered to look at the sheets when they were turned in by the volunteers.  I will give Perry credit here as he is not making himself into a victim as Newt appears to be doing.  So far he seems to accept the inevitable.  He will not be on the ballot for one of the biggest prizes of Super Tuesday.

    Look, getting people to sign these petitions is not easy.  I am not saying that it is, but they were only required to get less than barely over one tenth of one percent of qualified voters.  But the fact that it is difficult is the reason that an organized campaign is vital.  You must have the staff to organize the volunteers.  Another thing to remember is Virginia has off-year elections.  We had an election last month.  Every campaign has access to the information on where the voting locations were and what the past numbers of voters showing up to those locations are.   This is low hanging fruit, everyone showing up is a registered voter.  I volunteered on election day.  I only saw people out for Romney, Newt, and Obama.  I asked the other volunteers at the results party that I went to and none of them saw any for any of the other candidates that I listed.  I personally signed for Cain, Newt, and Rick Santorum.  I wouldn’t sign for Romney and was never asked to sign for any other candidate.  I am also on the email list for virtually every candidate and was only asked to collect signatures for Romney and Cain.

    Newt would like to change the rules because he is unhappy with the results.  That is a leftist tactic.  I find it abhorrent that Newt is now looking for a way around the rules.  While I do feel cheated that I only have two choices on my ballot.  The people who cheated me were the candidates themselves.

    Now, I am going to get back to celebrating Christmas.

    Who is behind the Herman Cain Allegations 

    The traditional wisdom would point to the liberal media smear machine.  We have all heard this story before.  The left has gone out of its way to bring racism into the discussion about Mr. Cain.  I have only heard one comment about race coming from the right about Herman.  But, we have all heard plenty coming from the left.  The fact that we, as conservatives, would like a black man is something that they just can’t accept.  The narrative that we are racists runs so deep within the liberal left meme they just can’t let it go.

    But, the truth is that they are not the only ones that could be to blame.  Both Romney and Perry have something to gain from these stories.  Romney is getting his first real taste of competition in the polls with Herman.  Perry has fallen so low in the polls over the past month that he may be getting desperate.  While his statement today on Fox News Sunday says that he understands that this is a marathon, not a sprint.  But he is at about 7% in the last national poll.

    Rick Perry also just hired new staff.  Staff that worked on the Rick Scott for Governor campaign.  That was a very dirty campaign.  These staffers are perfectly willing to get into the dirt to get their candidate elected.  Mitt has been running for president for more than four years.  He isn’t going to let it go as easily this time as he did in the last cycle.

    We don’t know what the truth of these allegations are.  We know that he did not ask for sex.  Apparently, the allegations are about comments he made that two women found objectionable.  Allegedly they were given cash settlements when leaving the employment of the association.  As a person who has worked in the non-profit world for many years, this is not uncommon.  It is normally much cheaper for the organization to pay the claim than to fight it in court.  The gag order put on the settlement is also a very common occurrence as well.

    I certainly hope that Perry or Romney are not behind these allegations.  I would hate to think that anyone would sink this low in order to win the primary.  But it isn’t something that is out the realm of possibility.  We now know that the Hillary Clinton campaign leaked many of the most damaging allegations against Obama to the right-wing press, because they didn’t feel they could release the information without being called racists.

    I would like to know where this information came from.  Don’t you?

     

    The Other McCain has this:

    This is from the Arizona state coordinator for the Perry campaign.  Although, one would think that they would be smarter to tweet this the day before the story comes out.

     

    But, if someone on the GOP side did bring out these charges; shame and ridicule must be brought down upon them.

    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.

    Michele Bachman’s Candidacy is Now Over 

    Michele Bachman has decided to use the Gardasil issue to hammer Governor Perry on.  While I am in full agreement with the congresswoman on the fact he did this by executive order.  Bad governor, bad.  I am also in agreement to point out the fact that he received some financial benefit from Merck, the manufacturer of the vaccine, in the form of campaign contributions.  What I don’t agree with is her continued claims that the vaccine caused at least one case of mental retardation. 

    In her latest statement during a presser today she says:

     “All I was doing is relaying what a woman had said, I relayed what she said. I wasn’t attesting to her accuracy. I wasn’t attesting to anything.”

    This is disturbing on quite a few levels.  She is admitting that she didn’t bother to fact check this statement before she made it. 

    I realize that there are many people in our country that have very strong feelings against vaccines.  I personally was talking to a woman last week who told me that flu shots are designed to kill you slowly, so she refuses to get one.  Jenny McCarthy has been very outspoken about her belief that her son’s autism was a result of his childhood vaccines.  But the fact remains that people who believe this are considered to  be on the “fringe”.  Most people in this country will need a great deal more proof before they jump on the no vaccine bandwagon.  I am making no judgement either way.  But, the no vaccine crowd is considered a fringe group. 

    I live in a state where Gardasil is “mandatory”.  The reason that is made mandatory is so that it will be covered by most insurance policies.  There is an opt out for the parents.  The numbers in this state have shown that most parents are not getting the vaccine.  Less than 20% of parents in Virginia have decided to give the shot to their child.  I personally believe that an opt out is the way to go.  It gives parents the choice. 

    Congresswoman Bachmann making the statement was bad enough, but she kept repeating it for days and refusing to back away from the comment gives me a great deal of pause about what type of leader she will be.  I like most of the Congresswoman’s message.  I have met her on a few occasions and she was very gracious.  But that isn’t enough.  We are at a crossroads in this country.  The next election quite literally will be deciding which way this country decides to go.  Are we going to become a nation where more and more people are dependent on the government, or are going to start the long road back to constitutional principles? 

    This country is in desperate need of a strong leader with principles.  One that can admit when things are not working and change course.  Congresswoman Bachmann has shown she is not that leader.  It is time for her to wrap it up and get back to her job as congresswoman.

      I don’t understand why she has made this such a big issue or has been obsessing on this issue. There are much more important issues on the table like immigration and the economy. I am not saying that the Gardasil issue isn’t worthy of discussion but I just think she’s blowing the whole situation out of proportion. I especially don’t like the fact how she brushed aside Perry’s “I’m sorry” statement. I mean what if she would happen to make a mistake and said I’m sorry?

        The really confusing part Teresa is that she has him on the executive order part and the Merck donations. She muddied the waters so much with that statement that people won’t even remember that part of the story. It just makes me scratch my head in disbelief.

        It really makes me doubt her leadership abilities.

          Agreed. She did fine in the debate, may have even gained some ground. But all this has eclipsed that. She’s done.

    • zillaoftheresistance 10:00 AM on 09/21/2011 Permalink | Reply

      I’m with y’all, she went about it the wrong way. I don’t know if Gardasil can make offspring retarded, and clearly neither does she, but Gardasil HAS caused serious adverse reaction in some young girls, a few of who have even died from it. She should have stuck to facts, not rumors, like the fact that the thing had not been tested for very long for possible negative effects before it was implemented in addition to all the other stuff.
      My grandma survived Polio, and endured horrible teasing even from her own father because she had to wear those “Forrest Gump” style leg braces. My great uncle had Polio too, and he spent his entire life paralyzed from the waist down because of it. I vaccinate my kids, but I will not subject them to experimental vaccinations tat have no documentation of long term effects. I declined the h1n1 vaccine because it was not properly tested before being given to the public and I didn’t buy into the hysteria over that flu strain anyway.
      You can’t catch HPV the way you can other diseases that immunizations exist for, it is only transferred through sexual contact. Not all strains of HPV cause cancer or are even permanent and the Gardasil does not protect against all the strains of HPV that have been linked to cancer, so you are giving your child a potentially dangerous vaccine that has not been tested for long term effects that may not even do what it is supposed to do anyway, which may give your child a false sense of security and reduce the likelihood of resisting risky behavior.
      I would much prefer to see the candidates confront Rick Perry for his islamocoddling, which is a far greater danger to this country than HPV or Gardasil.

        But that’s the thing, Zilla, it’s not about HPV or Gardasil. It’s about the role of government, once she left that, she lost.

        Under what Perry had done you wouldn’t have been forced to give your daughter the shot, you could have opted out. Which is perfectly fine, the problem is that he did with executive order. That is what she should have concentrated on instead of going off on some tangent that makes her sound nutty.

    Quote of the Day – Kirsten Powers Edition 

    I have to say that I think you would have to be racist to even think he was talking about Barack Obama. I mean, what about ‘big black cloud’ says Barack Obama to you? He so clearly was talking about the debt that hangs over our country that it’s just insane. … Like I said, there’s some connection that he’s making between a ‘big black cloud’ and Barack Obama that I don’t think most people are.

    Kirsten Powers speaking about Ed Schultz’s obviously biased and untrue attack on Gov. Rick Perry.   While I don’t agree with her politically, I do believe her to be fair on most things.

    It’s Getting Interesting Now – Rick Perry for President 

    Rick Perry will be putting his hat into the ring and run for the GOP nomination confirmed today by a spokesman for the Governor.  Perry who is not on the ballot for the Ames Straw Poll on Saturday, but already has legions of fans working to get people to write his name in.  This was being done before the announcement today. So it will be interesting to see how he places this weekend. 

    Perry’s announcement is bad news for Michele Bachmann.  Perry has a good relationship with social conservatives.  He is also very strong on 2nd and 10th amendment issues.  The Tea Party will be feeling some hominess with the Governor on his constitutional stances.  He and Bachmann will be going after the very same pool of voters.  Perry should win that race as he has tons of executive experience to Bachmann’s very thin experience.  I believe this year, experience will be of up most importance.   The last two plus years has shown electing someone without experience leads to nothing but bad things. 

    Another loser in this announcement is Sarah Palin.  While she has still not announced what her decision to run is, since her and Perry are buddies, this could throw a monkey wrench into her plans for a run.  Again, Perry will beat Palin in the experience department.  It will be interesting to see if Palin will join the race now.  She is getting in very late (although name recognition and fundraising are non-issues for her), she has repeatedly said she wouldn’t join the race if there were other true conservatives (Cain, Perry, Bachmann and Santorum are true conservatives) in the race, and she has a professional relationship with Perry that was very friendly. 

    The biggest loser in this would seem to be Mitt Romney.  Perry can pull in the big cash donors.  The rumors circulating earlier this week was that Perry was making sure he had commitments on donations before he would throw his hat into the ring officially.  Since he is announcing two days earlier than originally thought, someone must have opened their wallets.  Perry will be able to compete financially against Mitt, he has more executive experience in the government sector than Mitt, and most importantly, Governor Perry didn’t sign Romneycare into law.  Another rumor floating around is that this was Mitt’s biggest fear. 

    I am not very familiar with Perry’s record, I do know that Paulites consider Perry to be part of the new world order and Romney is afraid of his candidacy.  Then my reaction has to be Welcome Aboard Gov. Perry.  Glad you decided to play in GOP presidential politics.  If the Paulites and Romney don’t like you, you may be someone to take a look at.
