Rope a Dope?

Or, Win – Win?

Is it The Plan to have Rubio fall on his Sword?

How would it effect a Rubio Campaign in the 2016 Presidential Primary if he is seen as a “Martyr” for illegal immigration and Hispanic families?

Could that propel him to the nomination?

Or does he risk spending so much equity that he cannot recover Nationally… but solidifies his Senate seat in Florida until the end of time… or his time as the case may be.

When you look at it this way, it goes far in explaining what he is doing.

He has nothing to lose in Real Terms.

The part that bothers me most is his association with McCain and Graham.  That alone could be enough for me to never vote for him under any circumstance.

Too bad.

But he doesn’t look like a drinker…  where Rand Paul on the other hand…


The NSA does, in fact, listen to and read your stuff.

The NSA has now admitted what we all already knew.

They can, and do, listen to your phone calls and read your e-mail and texts.

After those of us who knew this, were positioned as idiots…

After those of you who didn’t know it, didn’t want to believe it…

After those who didn’t want to get caught doing it, have been…

The only consistent message from our Government is “The Truth will Change Tomorrow.”

Today’s latest is a further attempt to destroy the guy who brought light upon this scheme.

The marketing line is;

“You’re a Traitor if you think the Spook Traitor Leaking secrets did the right thing.”

They are almost finished with the “He’s a child who’s unqualified for the position and has a past that makes him a terrible person for the job, kinda…” approach.  And frankly, who is this an indictment of?  If this is true, doesn’t that bolster our argument that this type of power can and would, if not currently, be abused by individuals like the one described above for purposes less than Constitutional?

If you still trust these people… Clapper, Holder, Obama, Mueller, Napolitano, Clinton, Cheney, Fleischer, McCain, Nadler, King, Feinstein, Rubio et al. then you deserve what you get.

As a matter of respect, the NSA could at least correct my spelling from time to time on these posts…  Since they’re tuning in to read them anyway.

Or maybe just a bottle of bourbon dropped at my front door now and then.


Really, Really Not Going as Planned.

This morning two new polls were released.

Neither of which spoke well of President Obama’s effort to scare the American Public into not only Increasing Revenues (Democrat for Raising Taxes) but embracing the idea that not a single dollar can ever be cut from government spending.

One was a Pew Poll, the other was… a McClatchy-Marist poll.

After reading these polls I glanced up at the news and Representative Chris Van Hollen (D-Maryland) was doing an interview on FOX. Well, it wasn’t so much an interview as a nervous breakdown. There were about three different times I thought he was going to cry… he was already stamping his feet. Then I put it together.  They get these polls before anyone else.  And it’s not good.
President Obama’s only play left in the playbook is “going to the public”.  And he has lost “the public” according to the sources of opinion the Democrats trust.
Not only that, the “Republican Base” is not cooperating. They seem to be casting aside the like-minded Liberals like McCain, et al. and climbing on the Rand Wagon. This is not good for Democrats.
In the past the Republicans were simply Socialist Light… in more Democrat Speak “They were Reasonable.”
But times are a changin’.
And just to add to this approaching storm, the Liberals are running out of time.  Instead of ringing they must have “ticking” in their ears.
No, they’re not going to give up but time is tick, tick, ticking away until the Mid-Term elections and the campaigning season is about to start.

Effectively the Progressives have only 3-4 more months to over-reach and pass everything they can before they have to run to the center and sound like conservatives in order to get re-elected. Keep in mind, it is very difficult to sound like a conservative when you’re being forced by your party leadership to support Gun Control, Higher Taxes, A Failing National Health Care Scheme and a President with Approval ratings in the low 40’s who is desperately trying to convince your voters that a 3% cut to the growth of spending is “Draconian”. (A word the majority of those voters have no idea the meaning of… they just know the people they vote for want them think it’s bad.)

The fact that the Democrat Base doesn’t think “Sequester” is the Apocalypse is such a disaster that genuine fear is bubbling up from the likes of Van Hollen. The public is not buying the sales pitch that “Sequester” is a bad thing and that jerk Paul Ryan is daring the House and Senate Dem’s to come up with a budget proposal by presenting his own… directly to the people!  The indigestion on the Left is palpable.  The Liberals are fully aware the Debt Ceiling debate is days away.
While this is no victory, it is momentum.

What is remaining?

The Establishment Republicans must be voted out.  (Hey Arizona!  I love your state!  But why do you keep sending us McCain?  Do you Hate the rest of the country that much?  You’re cutting your nose off to spite your face.  Anyway…)

Keep Boehner contained.  If so, we might get a defunding of Obama Care.

Deny everything on Obama’s wish list of new legislation, leaving him with nothing but the EPA to destroy America.

Do not mistake this for excitement.  The Republicans have the uncanny ability to help the Democrats get what they want more often than not.

But the tantrum Van Hollen threw this morning seems indicative of the state of mind on the Left.

When you lose the Country, you lose the race.  Unless Obama can single-handedly save Europe… The Mid-terms could be very interesting.

Cheers.
