Rick Santorum

The last of my five tragic candidates seeking the Republican nomination for President is Rick Santorum.  Nice guy – looks good – talks a good game although when he has more than one issue to deal with, he seems to be overwhelmed.

There must be at least a million men and women in this country who have more of what an American President should be than Rick Santorum.

I can’t picture him dealing with and solving any of this country’s and the world’s problems.

The Presidency demands exceptional intellect, experience and judgment that must be far better than that of any and all other leaders in the world.

Santorum would never make the first cut if there were one million candidates for the job.  He is not average, he is far below average among any substantial field of candidates that I could imagine.  

Of the two other Republican candidates, I think I could give careful consideration to both Huntsman and Paul. I hope there is nothing to these accusations of racial bigotry of Ron Paul. If there is that would close my door for considering Paul.  

I think they are sound thinkers who have thought about the issues and have developed logical and reasonable solutions to those problems.  

I am, however, disappointed by Huntsman’s lackluster performance to date.  He’s a solid guy with high intellect and past substantial successes.

Mitt Romney

Having discussed my opinions and impressions of the three stooges running for the Republican nomination for President, that is Bachmann, Perry and Gingrich, I move on to the last two buffoons as I see them.

I hate intellectual whores.  I have no use for anyone whose opinion changes by the hour, depending upon the audience.  I don’t dislike Mitt Romney because he is dishonest.  I dislike him because he is not a man of his word.  He has no passion or conviction on any issue.  

His one strong characteristic is his perseverance.  No one has ever wanted to be President more than Mitt but wanting it and doing it are two separate concepts.  

His “Presidency at any cost” campaign is destroying itself from the inside out.  It cannot be long before he implodes into an empty ball of smoke.

If you disagree with me, I am always open to hearing another side of an issue.  Please give me your thoughts.

Newt Gingrich

This is my third day of railing about five of the candidates who want to be the Republican nominee for President.  As I have said, it is difficult to find anyone less competent than Bachmann and Perry.

But yet the Republican party seems hell-bent to bring on a group of tragic figures, without substance or qualifications, to become the next President of the United States. Gingrich has no leadership abilities as evidenced by his inability to lead and guide his small staff to get him on the ballot in Virginia, his home state. 

Normally once I conclude that someone is dishonest and that I cannot trust them, I look no further and I end the relationship.  This is my position on Gingrich.  I am not going to listen to him anymore because I don’t trust him.

I doubt Gingrich has broken any criminal laws in the country.  But don’t you get the feeling that he is an amoral individual who believes that as long as his conduct is not felonious, he is free and able to do everything possible to make himself famous and wealthy.

The man will say anything and do anything that will satisfy his ego, regardless of the consequences of what he does and how he does it.  He is also crazy.  

Bachmann, Perry and Gingrich are the reincarnation of the Three Stooges.

I would love to hear your reasoning on why I’m wrong.

Rick Perry

Perry excuses his inability to discuss any issue with any depth because he is “not a good debater.” Debating is not the problem.  His problem is that he seldom understands the question and when he does understand it, he has no clue about the answer.  If you can’t handle a question, how can you discuss it intelligently?  Perry’s style of debating is not his problem.  His problem is, he never understands the question.  

He knows little of this country’s history.  He has no idea about the separation of powers established in the United States Constitution.   He knows nothing about the Supreme Court’s role in the interpretation of the Constitution.  In fact, he has no idea what the U.S. Supreme Court does.  He doesn’t even know how many Supreme Court Justices there are. 
He knows nothing about any other country and he knows damned little about this one.  

I sit in wonder to understand how the people of Texas ever elected this man Governor.  When I watch and listen to this clown, whose only attribute seems to be to laugh and make fun of his own stupidity, I wonder if my judgment of him is flawed.

I would really appreciate it if those of you who support this joke of a man would attempt to convince me that I am wrong.

Michelle Bachmann

 This week I will discuss the five REPUBLICAN MENTAL MIDGETS running for President and why I can’t believe that any American would vote for any one of these people.

I start with Michelle Bachmann.  It is very obvious she has no knowledge and understanding of any subject – the economy, foreign policy, health care, or the U.S. Constitution.  In short, she knows absolutely nothing about any subject that a President deals with.

I have never heard anyone explain what reason he or she has for supporting Bachmann.  And yet there she stays giving one stock empty answer after another in debates where she shows she has difficulty recalling what her handlers have told her to say.

To those who do support Bachmann I would ask, even beg you, to send your reasons to me at the station as to why you support her.  She must have some talent that I simply have not been able to recognize.

Happy Holidays

I hope you have a happy holiday season and that you can recharge your battery to begin to help solve this country’s problems this coming year.

You know both intellectually and emotionally how serious and complicated our problems are.

Don’t listen to those who claim to have simple solutions. They don’t have any better understanding of this economy than they have of the cause and cure for cancer.

This American economy has a better chance of curing its ills than does any group of politicians in this country.

The Republicans have adopted one slogan that fits any problem they face. The simple answer they give to any question is “No” emphasizing that it is “NO NOT EVER” if this is going to cost money.

You can’t wean the horse from eating. It eventually dies from starvation.

You have to feed the horse, and you have to educate your children and invest in the economy. Even then things may not improve.

One thing I can tell you is that every solution the Republicans have is no solution.
