Palin is Already Vetted
Palin as President? What would that be like? Let’s just think about it for a moment.
Would other countries test America’s resolve? Not likely, if their Commander in Chief were the Lady who can drop a bear fearlessly with a rifle, she would restore meaning to the word deterrent.
She would upend the political world with long lost courage to stand for the founding principles, no acquiescing to appease some phantom requirement to be ‘politically’ correct.
Rogue? Maybe in the sense that being unashamed of defending individual liberties, believing the US, as founded, is the greatest nation ever formed by man and being unrepentant when it comes to calling it like you see it.
A few years ago, before Sarah Palin came on the scene, media folks every where would have called such a politician a breath of fresh air, but apparently that was only while they thought such was impossible to locate. Now, anyone close to meeting that description is bashed and mocked by most media organisations. What changed?
Governor Palin is what she claims to be, as are most of the Tea Party candidates. As long as any candidate could claim to be those things and no one lived up to them, they could back those ideals because fake conservatives are no threat their power grabbing agenda. However, the real deal is a profound threat to their power. If the people can really have leaders that will adhere to the Constitution and that do not think themselves to be or seek to be above the average citizen, why would they ever want leaders who behave as elitists and exercise dominance over them? Hence the threat to the elitist power seeking liberals and their media allies.
I hope Sarah, or one just like her, does run in 2016. We need a simple honest individual that understands, respects and will defend at all costs the Constitution of the US and the coveted liberties it affords it citizens. Run Sarah, run!
So, in case you didn’t know, one candidate, President Obama or Governor Romney, has to get 270 electoral votes to claim the White House! I have been looking at the states and the major players and game changers in this election and sprung together some scenarios for you to have a look at! I’m not saying that these states are more important than the others, but they are the big difference makers! Take a look:
Okay, so let’s take a look at a scenario if Obama wins:
In this little scenario, Obama would win Pennsylvania and Michigan, as well as Ohio and Wisconsin (where the polls show him with a slight advantage – key word, slight). Obama would then only need Nevada or Iowa to top him off and winning with a grand total of 271 electoral votes.
From a different perspective, let’s see the same scenario for Governor Romney:
A Romney victory would be seen if he takes Florida, North Carolina and Virginia going for a 3 for 3 in the major Southern Battlegrounds. Romney would still likely need to win Ohio, and could make it over the top with a win in Colorado. He’d then win the night with 275 electoral votes… However, if Governor Romney loses in Ohio, he could still pick up the electoral deficits by claiming Wisconsin and Colorado, with New Hampshire, Iowa or Nevada then putting him over a barrel. In this scenario, Romney would win with no more than 273 electoral votes.
You never know though! As both candidates are both pretty close together, both candidates could very well be preparing for recounts, and perhaps even looking at the big possibility of a tie in the electoral college!
There we have it, the final debate between Mitt Romney and President Obama is over. The only thing we can do now is cross our fingers and vote (well Americans, not me, I’m British).
So what did we think of the debate? Who shone like the sun and who sank like the Titanic? This debate was more tricky than the previous two to decide that, well I think so anyway. The President was more on the ball (he had obviously had his breakfast), and Romney kept to safe topics. I’m not saying it was a bad thing that Romney didn’t venture out too deep, but it was a little disappointing. I understand though, he didn’t want to say something too drastic to the point that he’d lose votes and confidence in people – I doubt he would though, but nevertheless he remained in the safe water.
Regardless, I still think that Mitt Romney came across as the greater politician. He remained calm, collective and in control. President Obama on the other hand continued to interrupt, appear impatient and get get cross at what he was hearing from his opponent.
Romney was steady, fluid and Presidential as he played it safely down the middle and took his shots when they presented themselves. It was a solid performance by Romney and, as usual, Obama appeared bitter, angry and petulant – extremely unPresidential.
So the Vice Presidential debate is done and dusted. Finally. We’ve been anticipating it since the Palin/Biden debate in 2008. Many Americans, and non Americans wanted to see how someone else faired against the Vice President of the United States. We all know that Palin wiped the floor with Biden back in 2008 – one of the most watched debate in Vice Presidential debate history – over 70 million people tuning in.
Ryan Verses Biden!
Well, from watching it, the first thing that came to my mind was how rude the Vice President was to his opponent. We get it, the man is competing for your office, but at least show an ounce of respect. Biden was rude. He interrupted, laughed, scoffed and more than less mocked Paul Ryan – and no less but in front of the man too!
Just take for example the Romney/Obama debate. Romney listened when the President spoke and then took the opportunity to argue his point once the judicator had given him his prompt. He gave the President a respectful look, even though they have totally different views on how the country should be managed.
Biden on the other hand was a complete rude idiot. He interrupted Ryan 82 times. He smirked, laughed, or interrupted constantly throughout the debate. I lost count at the amount of times Ryan had to start his point again just because the Vice President had butted in and put him off topic.
There was no comparison between how Romney controlled the debate, vs. Biden, who was a distraction to the debate. No comparison.
Let’s have a look at the polls recently updated to see who Americans thought won the debate:
CNN poll – Ryan 49 Biden 43
CNBC poll – Ryan 56 to Biden 36
AP poll – Ryan 51 to Biden 43
Although it’s not scientific, look at the Star Ledger Poll: Ryan – 56% / Biden – 44%.
I think it would also be interesting to add that not only was Biden rude, he was also lying through his arse most of the time… for example, according to the Liberal Star Ledger Fact Checker:
BIDEN: “Well, we weren’t told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security again. And by the way, at the time we were told exactly — we said exactly what the intelligence community told us that they knew. That was the assessment. And as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view.”
RYAN: “There were requests for more security.”
Ryan is right, judging by testimony from Obama administration officials at the hearing a day earlier.
BIDEN: “We went out and rescued General Motors.”
Actually, the auto bailout of General Motors and Chrysler began under President George W. Bush. The Obama administration continued and expanded it.
BIDEN, when asked who would pay more taxes in Obama’s second term: “People making a million dollars or more.”
False, Obama’s proposed tax increase reaches farther down the income ladder than millionaires. He wants to roll back Bush-era tax cuts for individuals making over $200,000 and couples making more than $250,000.
BIDEN: “What we did is, we saved $716 billion and put it back, applied it to Medicare.”
Contrary to Biden’s assertion, the administration is cutting $716 billion over 10 years in Medicare to pay for Obamacare.
BIDEN: “Romney said ‘No, let Detroit go bankrupt.'”
False, Mitt Romney opposed using government money to bail out Chrysler and General Motors, instead favoring privately financed bankruptcy restructuring. This would have protected investors in 401k and pension plans, but would have hurt Unions.
It seems that the Vice President was not only a rude opponent, but also a rather naughty liar.
