Framing the Dialogue

…To A Gun Fight

ballsSooner or later the GOP may actually grow a pair…not one for each elected official, just one that perhaps they can share.  Maybe like those gnarly ones you see hanging from the back of a beat up pickup truck.  The RINOs really think that they can just hold on and regain the Senate in November.  I am not so sure with shenanigans like they pulled in Mississippi allowing…no encouraging…no begging Democrats to vote in the primary against the TEA Party candidate will leave many of us conservatives with a very bad taste in our mouths.  I am having a hard time looking forward to Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority Leader.  Dine on these fine quotes from Mitch recently;

Caption This – It’s In the Pocket

Some pictures SCREAM for us to use our creativity.  In the Caption This series I’ll start it off and hopefully you’ll pitch in.

“You really do have big balls.”

“When I pledge “allegiance” I don’t say which flag”

“Why the frig are you wearing a red tie”

“So you say a credible source told you and Romney has to prove that he doesn’t beat his wife”

“No…beating his wife may be too extreme even for you Harry.”

“You had to pay full price and I got my suit half off because I am the Commander-In-Chief”

The OBA Administration

I’d like to suggest that the Obama Administration be renamed the OBA Administration or the Obama Back-Assward Administration.  When most of us have a problem we try to find and fix using logic.  For instance, my car was having some trouble starting so I had the battery and alternator checked.  If I were to act like the Obama Back-Assward Administration, I would probably have my key checked.  It would be funny except that these folks are “running” the country or should I say “ruining” the country…

After the Dust Settled

Now that the dust has settled from the November 2 mid-term elections it is interesting how the left/progressives/liberals/Democrats are behaving.  The media has grabbed the horn by the bull and proclaimed that the results were not a repudiation of Obama’s policies by the American people, was not about Obamacare (it is interesting that this label has stuck), was not a victory for the Tea Party, or the American electorate is just too stupid except where favored Democrats were re-elected.  So why did the Democrats lose so badly?  Some of the themes center around voter stupidity, racism, Obama being too centrist (WTF), and my favorite…Fox News.  Scott Spiegel listed the “Top 10 excuses” at NewsRealBlog. 

Herding Cats

Now with over eighteen months in the White House the Obama Regime is having to come to grips with ruling versus running.  Even though he still seems to be in campaign mode, Obama has to be coming to the realization that being the President of the United States is not anything like community organizing.  He can no longer say anything he wants or make conflicting promises.  He is still doing it, but citizens have expectations that are not being met.

Misunderestimating

I wasn’t sure whether to  list this posting as an update to I Dream of Health Care or my review for Judge Napolitano’s book Lies the Government Told You.  I punted and selected neither.

This headline from the Associated Press may qualify for the Homer Simpson “DUH” awards;  Report: Health overhaul will increase tab.”  The assessment wasn’t by any “right-winged” think tank or pundit.  The Health and Human Services Department provided the bad news except that it is too late as the bill is now law.  The article listed more bad news regarding long-term care insurance and medicare so read at your own risk.  Here are some of my predictions:

GMZ – Celebrity Reading List

Perhaps the perky, Pulitzer Prize winning Katie Couric had her greatest moment when she seemed to stump Sarah Palin when she inquired about what the former Alaska governor reads.  Months later Palin spun it that she was rather perturbed at Couric’s sophomoric [my description] question and not caught off balance.  Only she knows for sure.

After extensive research we at GMZ have discovered what magazines celebrities read.  No laws were broken by GMZ in obtaining this information:

Wish List For Our Second 21st Century Decade

ChosenOneI guess that it is tradition to end the previous year and start a new year with some wishes or resolutions for the future.  As we move into the second decade of the 21st century I have a few of my own…hopefully for your enjoyment:

  • My first wish is for the lame stream media to start to enjoy the fact that they were successful in getting their man elected to the White House.  It has been almost a year so it is time for them to give up the ghost of the George W. Bush presidency and myths that they like to promote such as the 2000 election was stolen, Cheney was really in charge, and that Bush was both stupid and fiendishly cunning.

Harry Reid and the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Reid and the Chamber of SecretsIt seems like the Republicans have failed to stop the Obamacare bill from making its way to the President’s desk to sign sometime early next year.  In a rare occurrence, the Democrats have not been able to peel off one RINO from the Republican party enabling them to call this a bipartisan bill.  Maybe that is because Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has written the legislation in a secret chamber somewhere in Washington.  His amendment was only released to the Senate after he completed the bribes to Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson.  The  Wall Street Journal calls this a “Change That Nobody Believes In.”
