Impresions of Mitt.

I'm not going to review Romney's speech. I would like to discuss the impression his speech has given me, coupled with what I've already seen.   The recurring description of Romney is that he's stiff, robotic, lacks charisma, etc. Even some...

Ryan Hits a Home Run.

  "When I was waiting tables, washing dishes, or mowing lawns for money, I never thought of myself as stuck in some station in life. I was on my own path, my own journey where I could think for myself, decide for myself, define happiness for...

"Caring" Politicians.

  Ann Romney says her husband regards helping others as a privilege, and not a political talking point. Now, you can argue whether Mitt really feels that way or not. But the line itself, is really, really effective. In just a few words she managed...

Barack Obama: Our Teflon Con.

We're all familiar with the expression, "style over substance." Barack Obama is more along the line of "style over all forms of common sense." Someday people will look back on his presidency and wonder how a nation was duped into voting for such an...

Obama's High Tolerance for Communism.

  The year is 2020. Forty days from the election, a bombshell hits the front page. It seems that it was found that candidate A once served willingly on a board, with a Neo Nazi and even endorsed a book written by this person. Also, it comes out,...

The Next Dos Equis Guy.

  "It is very rare that I come to an event where I'm like the fifth or sixth most interesting person in the room." -- Barack Obama at an NBA fundraiser in New York.       Did anyone find this quote as ridiculously amusing as I did? Who...

Obama and His Brother from Another Mother.

  When my brother passed away about a year and a half ago, I mentioned in a post, that we were very different. That sometimes happens with siblings. We did not see things alike, or share even close to the same "world view." Arguments were common,...

Romney Will Win!

  During my poker dealing days, I saw many players that seemed to know all the odds, but didn't win all that often. Some just got too impatient when the cards were going negative, while others just couldn't read their opponents all that well. When...

Geezer Care.

  I remember paying a doctor, way back in 1973, the whopping total of $8 for an office visit. Yeah, I know, everything was cheaper years ago. People make more now, and everything has gone up. But the cost of living hasn't gone up twelve to fifteen...

My Memories of TV's "Golden Age."

  I was watching some highlights from a NASCAR race, yesterday. Interesting sport, but have you noticed how rude and inconsiderate the drivers are? Seriously, how many times have you seen an accident on the track and NOT ONE PERSON STOPS TO HELP!...

On: Biden, "Hate" Crimes, and Whatever.

  People have been wondering in recent weeks, if the right vice presidential candidate would help Romney's chances. Turns out that the right vice presidential candidate is helping Romney ... a LOT! Too bad for Obama, it's Joe Biden! His recent...

Journalistic Sellouts.

  Imagine you're watching the Super Bowl. The game ends, and all the players and coaches of the winning team are jumping up and down, hugging one another, and filled with joy. We've seen it many times. But let's say that included in this...

Why America Works.

  It's very fashionable to put down America. I read the negative comments all the time, from the left and even the right. Our government is corrupt, we're not all that well educated, we're spoiled, blah and blah. Not that there's not some truth to...

Mitt Romney's Excellent Choice.

  It is often correctly pointed out that no one votes for a vice presidential candidate. That said, it doesn't mean that the choice is not important. A good running mate helps spread the message and theme of the campaign. Two effective speakers are...

Warning: Poll Ramblings.

  I've pretty much decided to settle on Gallup and Rasmussen as the polls I'll "listen" to. There are so many out there, it's hard to keep up. I know some say that Rasmussen is a Republican poll, as if there aren't Democratic polls all over the...

Voting in the REAL WORLD.

  "I learned our government must be strong, it's always right and never wrong; our leaders are the finest men, and we elect 'em again and again. That's what I learned in school today, that's what I learned in school." -- "What Did You Learn in...

I Don't "Get" Voters.

  Let me see if I understand the present political situation correctly. We have a president with a far left background. He was "mentored" by a communist, sought out Marxist profs in college, and knows THREE former members of the violent and...

Tolerance vs. Acceptance.

  "I realize there are people who do not love their fellow man, and I HATE people like that!" -- Song satirist Tom Lehrer (1960-something.)       I'm not sure exactly when the political left took it upon itself to define what "hate,"...

Another Day, Another Poll-er.

  There's another Democrat-heavy poll out claiming that Obama is leading significantly in some battleground states. I have plenty of things to bore you with, so I won't bore you with all the numbers. You can do your own research. But these polls...
