Sooner or later the GOP may actually grow a pair…not one for each elected official, just one that perhaps they can share.Â Maybe like those gnarly ones you see hanging from the back of a beat up pickup truck.Â The RINOs really think that they can just hold on and regain the Senate in November.Â 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.Â I am having a hard time looking forward to Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority Leader.Â Dine on these fine quotes from Mitch recently;
Ladies and Gentlemen…Introducing the Perfect GOP candidate!
Keys to the perfect candidate:
Mitt Romney’s hair:Â That’s his best feature physically, intellectually, conservatively, etc. though his campaign finances are quite attractive too.
Rick Perry’s thumbs up:Â Perry comes across as a very down-to-earth guy and this sells well though he may be a little too much like “W” for many people’s taste.
Herman Cain’s Brain:Â You have to love Mr. Cain’s wit, wisdom, and willingness to smash through the veil of political correctnessÂ barriers.Â He speaks to the people as a person.
“When we take a position that isn’t willing to embrace evolution, when we take a position that basically runs counter to what 98 of 100 climate scientists have said, what the National Academy of Science has said about what is causing climate change and man’s contribution to it, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science, and, therefore, in a losing position,”
“we actually were willing to shun science and become a party that was antithetical to science. I’m not sure that’s good for our future and it’s not a winning formula,”
My first exposure to Governor Rick Perry of the Great State of Texas was listening to an interview when he was visiting the Left State of Pennsylvania a few years ago.Â Gov. Perry and the correspondent (sorry, but I can neither remember nor find references to this interview) were discussing the Texas Legislature and their activity.Â This is of great interest to Pennsylvanians as we have one of the largest (and costliest) legislatures in the country.
Update April 14, 2009 – Texas Governor Rick Perry announced today that he would back legislation proposed by fellow Republican state Representative Brandon Creighton in support of state’s rights as outlined in the Tenth Amendment of our Constitution.Â House Concurrent Resolution 50, stated that:
“Affirming that the State of Texas claims sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution, serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates, and providing that certain federal legislation be prohibited or repealed.”
