Brooklyn, NY– I’m at a store, waiting for an offload. I often forget how crowded it gets down here. All it takes is five minutes worth of driving here to remind me.
- Obama: The latest example of how socialism doesn’t work no matter who’s in front: I note with interest, David’s Scamble, this morning , wherein he posts some quotes which portray Barack Obama as merely incompetent. This does seem to be the more accepted meme, and we’ll doubtless see more of it as it becomes ever increasingly obvious Obama is going to get his head handed him on election day. I suspect this will eventually be a popular meme of leftists looking to salvage something of their socialist mantra, which is now taking it on the chin with Obama.I, on the other hand am not nearly as inclined to be as generously sympathetic to Obama, as to label him a mere incompetent. Remember, gang, this has always been the cry… that socialism can work if we get the right people leading. That it has never worked makes one wonder under what conditions in the socialist mind such nonsense will EVER work, since no mere mortal has managed it, yet… That aside, however, what we will see the attempt made to put some gap between Obama and the socialist mantra he’s been pushing. The point must be made in response….and repeatedly and forcefully… that Obama didn’t work because socialism doesn’t work, not the reverse.
- New Hampshire: Yes, I saw part of it, and hear most of it. A few reactions; First Pawlenty blew it. He should have gone after Romney with both barrels. As it is, he let the guy off easy. Clue: If you can’t go after him Romneycare, how in hell do you expect to be able to take on Obama?For his part Romney was smooth. After four years of Obama being smooth, I suspect that might not carry the weight, anymore. And had Romneycare vs Freedom come up in earnest, he’d not have been as smooth in any event. I’m highly annoyed that didn’t happen.
Bachman did well during her time, and didn’t do herself any damage.
Same for Santorum, who for the record, I can’t see voting for. Like Romney, there’s far too much establishment GOP boiled into that carcass.
Ron Paul got his followers going and few others.
Herman Cain. Nice guy, but seemed confused as he has been previously on military and foreign policy. Likeable guy and well-founded, but I wonder….
Here it is, gang…. The nominee will likely not be from the group that debated in New Hampshire, last night.
- WINGNUT? Speaking of New Hampshire, CNN’s “coverage” of the event leaves me asking…. Can we now take as a given that the press, including the most Busted name in Noose, is left-leaning, and has no objectivity whatever? I think we can.  No wonder Fox is leading in the ratings game by a few orders of scale.
