Second Stimulus?

The economy continues to dwindle in these harsh economic times.  Job losses have fallen in every month since January and the unemployment rate, 9.4%, is at a twenty-six year low.  Based on these statistics, Congress has asked themselves if a second stimulus bill is needed.  Let me give you a quick answer, NO! Let’s go back to the first stimulus, named the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The enormous $787 billion bill failed according to President Barack Obama’s predictions. While campaigning for its vote, Obama stated that without this very important bill, the unemployment rate will rise to

Sarah Palin did not misstate what a VP does

Here’s the answer that Sarah Palin gave to a third grader who asked what it is that the Vice President does: Embedded video from <a href=”http://www.cnn.com/video” mce_href=”http://www.cnn.com/video”>CNN Video</a> And Here’s the specific part CNN was interested in: “They’re in charge of the United States Senate. So, if they want to, they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes.” Here’s the title of the CNN story (as it appears on CNN.com) regarding her comments: “Palin misstates VP role” Now, I’m no constitutional law expert but luckily for me the constitution is written

Don’t they get that image is… well, everything?

Seriously. What was one of Sarah Palin’s aides thinking when they described her two day trip to Arizona in order to prepare for her upcoming showdown with Joe Biden as “Debate Camp”. The same genius also referred to Sarah Palin as “SP”, I mean come on… what is this aide thinking? Are they trying to make her look less ready to lead? When you have a candidate whose biggest criticisms are that they are too young and inexperienced how can you refer to them in such an informal way when talking to the media? If you want to refute those

Huckabee to supporters: Palin pick “pleasant surprise”

Contrary to what others in the conservative community might think it seems that Mike Huckabee isn’t trying to fracture the party or “stir up the same sense of grievance among the Huckheads that finding out Hillary wasn’t vetted stirred up in the PUMAs” it seems that Mike Huckabee is actually quite happy with the VP choice. Here is the message he sent to supporters today: Sarah Palin for Vice President! Today at 12:48pm by Mike Huckabee Sarah Palin is a pleasant surprise for those of us who had hoped that Senator McCain would pick a principled and authentic conservative pro-life

Sarah Palin, The most experienced?

So, now that the pick is in, its time for the Democratic attacks to start… What about Sarah Palin (who went to the University of Idaho) will they attack you ask? Well, as Ironic as it is, her inexperience… That’s right, Barack Obama and his surrogates will attack Sarah Palin because she doesn’t have enough experience to lead… boy oh boy. Now, any sane person will surely see right through this pathetic tactic (seriously, couldn’t they come up with anything better?) but I figure why not examine it anyway? Well, it is true that Sarah Palin has only been Governor

Pick Pawlenty (or Romney if you must)… AND Lieberman

So, as I’m sure you know, there has been buckets and buckets of speculation over the GOP veepstakes and of course some friendly advice on who the pick should be. Well… now its my turn and honestly it seems like there is only one choice (maybe two), however I have a, not so secret twist, to my analysis. OK, I’m just gonna jump right to the point, pick Pawlenty for VP. He is by far the best choice for you, period. He is pro-life, he is a conservative who won’t piss people like me off, he has more experience than

Obama’s attempt to be as cool as a 12 year old girl fails horribly…

So it seems that Barack Obama’s master plan to text all of his adoring obamatons with his vice presidential pick before anyone else was a complete and total failure (a lot like the pick itself). Yes, you heard it right, the plan heralded by “unbiased” reporters and preteens alike took a turn for the worst last night. Yup apparently supporters who signed up for the special texts were not the first to be notified, despite the promise from the Obama campaign, and not by a long shot. Some of the first reports in the media came around 11pm on the
