Middle Village, NYC– I’m here dropping off yet another load. I’ll be headed for Bethlehem PA, shortly. Middle 80’s outside. Looks like we’re building for that storm I spoke of yesterday.

  • John Huntsman in: He tried invoking Reagan. And trust me, Huntsman is no Reagan. Reagan was an unapologetic conservative.  Huntsman is not. Example:

    The campaign would take “the high road,” Huntsman promised during his speech. “I don’t think you need to run down anyone’s reputation to run for president,” he said, decrying what he called the “corrosive” nature of today’s political debates.

    Now, let’s look at the man whose name he tried to steal, in a speech delivered in the same spot back in 1980:

    “A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his.

    Huntsman is incapable of the kind of unapologetic, in your face conservatism Reagan won his elections with, and got our country moving again with. He thereby disqualifies himself at the get-go. Republicans need a go- for- the- throat candidate. Not John Q Milkqetoast Huntsman. Is there a way I can make my feelings any more clear, here? And is it any wonder the leftist dominated press is so enamored with the guy?

  • HOME SALES HIT NEW LOW: As an example, Huntsman could have, and I think should have commented on this little stat:

    Fewer people purchased previously occupied homes in May, bringing sales down to their lowest level of the year. Home sales sank 3.8 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.81 million homes, the weakest pace since November, the National Association of Realtors said Tuesday. Economists say that’s far below the 6 million homes per year sold in healthy housing markets.”

    Back in 1980, the Carter White House was trying mightly to pass off gloomy stats like this as good news… just as the New Jimmy Carter …. Obama…. is today.  With the help of he leftist press, of course.

  • PERRY pt 2: I made positive comments about Rick Perry yesterday. Katie Thompson does so today.
  • Hey, Glenn: I note this:

    ANOTHER DAY, another shameless smear of Andrew Breitbart. “With the Anthony Weiner scandal, the story within was the lack of integrity of the MSM in their attacks on Breitbart and defense of Weiner. Here, we have several people associated with Netroots Nation showing the same lack of integrity, trying to tear down … the exact same man.” 

    Well, look, here’s a thought; Maybe the mentality behind the leftist press and the nutroots is the same? Destroy conservatives at any cost?

One Response to “Ramble for 6/21/11”

  1. Yes, our founding fathers were well aware of the differences between a republic and a democracy. They revered the former; but as I said above, they hated and feared the latter.
