Huckabee Preacher or President?

Don’t get me wrong because for the most part I think Mike Huckabee is probably one of the more genuine candidates over on the Republican side of the election. His sense of humor is realisticall y enough suited to him when it comes to the non stop religious questions thrown at him. Being a Republican candidate for President you pretty much need to be wearing your religion on your sleeve and if you are not then you better be explaining yourself. Which brings me to the thought process of why Mike Huckabee is not giving a JFK speech like Mitt Romney did just a few days ago? After all, Mitt is only a Mormon faith member, he was never a religious leader of his flock like Mike Huckabee was.

Is Mike Huckabee not concerned about all the people of the Jewish faith that just might also be a Republican. How about all them Catholic Republican s like Bill O‘Reilly? Skip the Catholic’s  , we gave up on Bill O’Reilly when he signed his pact with the devil but don’t tell anyone. Everyone knows that being a Catholic and a Republican too is like taking scuba diving lessons by jumping out of a plane at ten thousand feet, those two things just do not go together.

Mitt Romney is going to give a speech at former President George H. W. Bush Library in Texas to defend, define, explain or totally confuse the Christian right wing of his Republican Party.

In the words of former Senator Lloyd Bentsen of Texas…”Y ou Sir are no Jack Kennedy”.

Third Rail of Immigration Politics

Illegal immigration is a real problem in this nation and no matter how much all of the candidates try to bob and weave away from it, it is still the 400 pound gorilla in your part of America. There are those out there that believe we should buy the Great Wall of China and move it piece by piece to the border with Mexico. There are also those amongst us that believe that the only crime many of these illegal immigrants have committed was not coming here legally. Once here they melt into society and fade in to being just another part of America. Huge crime there.

With neither political party willing to admit that our nations immigration policy is busted they are backing off of the topic because it is the easiest route for their campaign. That sounds similar to what the latest votes on immigration reform were in the house recently. Their changes in position is not about illegal immigrants or the broken policies of the past twenty plus years, it’s about votes. Voters have an opinion and neither side has the guts to stand firmly when it comes to fixing our immigration problem.

Presidency and the Voters Temperature

Is it ironic that we as a people can not trust any politician running for President to tell us what they will do once elected based on what the current President has done to our nation?

When you think about the truth in politics you always look at it as a cloud that could be dispersed if the winds change. Public opinion is now no longer relevant if the latest polls say that a candidate for President should be on this side of the issue or against this other issue. I’ll offer one further point with the main stream media dictating as to whom is first, second and third and laughingly pointing out who the hell should just up and quit campaigning in each political party. Has the office of President been sold to the highest tally polling Lemming?

Joe Biden, Statesman Enough for You?

For the record I kind of like Senator Joe Biden for a couple of reasons for President. He isn’t afraid to put his neck out on the line on any issue and he backs his stance up with the facts needed to do so. There isn’t an “Um, um, (cough, little bit of throw up there in the back of the throat) when he speaks when asked about any topic. His recall of facts immediately come forth and he tells the voters why he has the position he has and then follows up why the voter should have the same thought process.

Of all of the Democrat’s running for President I would have to favor Senator Biden over all of them when it comes to foreign policy. Unlike a former beauty pageant contestant, Joe Biden seems to know all there is about the world conflicts and he does not need a map to know where they are. I tend to doubt that the rest of the candidates other than Bill Richardson could go toe to toe with him on issues to do with conflict around the world.

Clinton on Science, Energy and Stem Cells

I’ve been watching many of the candidates on the Democrat side of the election process for President and I’m finding myself surprised that Senator Clinton has my interest raised. I’ve known since her husband was President that she was a believer in science and understandin g our bodies and our world is a never ending investigatio n, I did not know that she was so committed to unleashing our nations brainiacs and scientists to solve many of the ills that the current President silenced.

Stem cell research needs more than just the private sector to make considerable progress. Stem cell research needs the freedom of our universities and colleges to experiment without fear of losing federal grants or funding. Stem cell research is the science of our human future and without it many of the debilitating or life ending diseases will shorten the life span of many Americans.

Acting Locally

Last night I had the opportunity to hang out with folks who think like me. The difference was, this was face time. All my politicking is cyber. I write, comment and chat all the time, but I rarely actually talk to people. Part of that is because I live in a red county, and my mother raised me not to pick fights with strangers. A larger part is that I hadn’t bothered to seek them out. My bad.

The first myth busted, for me anyway, is that people involved in local politics are plugged in, smarter and far too savvy to hang with a newbie like me. Nope. Everybody I talked to was a lot like me, knows some stuff about the local and national scene, but wants to learn more. They ask questions, and listen. It was an information exchange, not a snob fest of know-it-alls . It was a lot of fun.

Candidates: All Things to All People?

Within two years, technology will enable campaigns to customize their advertising to individual TV viewers simultaneous ly. That’s right, the ad you’ll see on your TV and the ad your different color, gender or sexual orientation neighbor next door sees will not be the same ad. Basically, it’s a license to play with the electorate, minimizing their collective power by dividing them further.

For example, do you think an immigration ad coming into a white republican home and a Hispanic home will impart the same message? Can the elected candidate meet both promises? Do you believe, once in office, they care? Why should they? There’s no onus of responsibili ty when there’s no common interpretati on of a candidate’s positions.

But the technology could also allow candidates to make more subtle adjustments to their mannerisms, speech patterns and appearance. In theory, a voter originally from the South could hear a candidate speak with a hint of a drawl. A dog owner could be shown a glimpse of the candidate’s family with their pet. — AP
