GOP Debate November 9, 2011
So tonight will be my last synopsis of the GOP debates. There will probably be many more but really I think this has been a destructive process for the candidates. They have revealed too much of themselves. And although they have tried to turn the story desperately this is an anti-incumbent and anti establishment year. The candidate that can be the most anti establishment will win and guess what? Both parties don’t have that candidate.
Every last person running for president has served in office, Granddad is government or Dad is government and both have had educational advantages the average American will never have the opportunity to receive. Wealthy establishment candidtae is all we are offered this year.
There is not one candidate that understands the fear of not being able to make a mortgage payment or being able to feed their families. None of them get it. And they all belong to that cult which is referred to as DC.
I liked Mitt. I thought he would make an excellent run against Obama especially if JEB ran as Vice but even Mitt is apart of the establishment. America is tired of the establishment. We don’t believe in our government anymore and until someone if nominated who knows what it is to struggle, be financially devastated and unemployed there is no one to vote for and that includes President Obama.
DC has lost touch with reality and so has everyone who works there as their sole intent on working in DC is to insulate themselves from the true hardships of what it is to be a citizen of this country.
You can’t judge this debate without considering all the gaffs of the other debates. Most notably I think Newt Gringrich has done well and so has Mitt Romney. But both Gringrich and Romney are establishment candidates and both have almost as much baggage as Herman Cain and Michelle Bachmann.
Cain’s sexual harassment charges gives and advantage for Bachmann tonight as she and her husband, with his clinic to convert homosexuals straight, live in Minnesota in a house paid for by Fannie and Freddie right before they went bankrupt. And Michelle Bachmann is never going to [politically survive the claim she made that a parent told her an HPV shot made her child mentally retarded? Where is the parent that said that? Can Bachmann prove she was told that? I don’t think so. Michelle Bachmann has gamed the system so much she has managed to make money as a sitting Congresswoman while collecting money to run for president. She is a double dipper and then has the out right audacity to cry foul while she is collecting two government salaries? She underestimates the American people entirely. All her lies and schemes will not win her anything.
I also like Huntsman but it doesn’t look promising.
Herman Cain’s tax plan was the pits and I don’t think we need another president that can’t keep it in his pants. We have already endured that as a nation far too many times.
Newt good but really bad baggage. And he has no new plans.
Rick Santorum is alright but there are consistent rumors that he is gay. That wouldn’t affect my decision to vote for him except he claims to be anti gay rights.
The guy from New Mexico is late to the game. And late never sits pretty with me.
And while all of America was unemployed, losing their homes and going hungry the GOP candidates had the audacity to say, “No more taxes.”. Has gthe GOP figured out you have to have income to worry about taxes. America is unemployed. Let's talk JOBS before tax cuts! President Obama was going to extend the Bush tax cuts. And I saw and interview with Bill Clinton in which he said, “The American People do not resent success.”. And he is absolutely right. No one resents the success of Jeff Zuckerman or Bill Gates. There maybe other things we do not like about them but we think they are entitled to their success.
Americans hate oppression of the few. In particular the ill gotten gains of those in DC or the liberation of the DC crowd. Because no one in this country feels free right now. We all know DC is down on every American as hard as they can to limit any wealth or success possible. We know we are completely shut out of having the success through hard work and despise people who are successful through ill gotten gains. Case and point Michelle Bachmann who lives in a taxpayer provided house, with a fat government grant to her husband for his homosexual treatment center while collecting a congresswomen’s pay check and the fat campaign contributions of running for the GOP nomination all while crying foul over the debt ceiling. Thank God Ed Rollins got away from Michelle Bachmann. I like Ed Rollins.
Has it occurred to anyone else in America that if you took all the money used by all the candidates to run for office that you could pay off the debt? It is a matter of priorities.
Let me be clear there is not a dog in this race that has their priorities straight.
And before this gets down to the Democrats against the Republicans or vice versa let me be clear the crooks inside the beltway are only putting on a show for you to feel free and they could care less about what happens outside of the beltway unless it interferes with their power, money, or life style.
The Republicans use to be the old guard who believed in taking care of everyone but that is no longer true. The old guards of the Republican party are few and far between. They are not running for office that is for certain.
GOP Debate Niver 9, 2011
Last GOP Debate Analysis
The Republicans seem to be in agreement tonight. No more bank bail outs. They recommend cut, cap and balance which Michelle Bachmann voted against. They are willing to allow Italy to economincally fail.
Mitt did make a point that corporations should be will to go through bankruptcy and restructuring. But Romney looks rather batter.
Unemployment is a national crisis and they are still claiming they need to reduce taxes. Bachmann claims taxes cause unemployment and yet George Bush eliminated taxes for the entire eight years of his presidency and no one could get jobs. People have been out of work for a decade not a year or three years.
There are more people out of work than in work. And it will only takes a candidate wise enough to enfranchise Americans who are disenfranchised to win the election.
Herman Cain was allowed to address the sexual harassment claims. Herman Cain needs to learn to abandon bad ideas but he is too old and hounds his 999 plan which will be lethal to the middle and the low income people.
They want to help the middle class which is gone. That is Bush straight talk for helping no one.
And they are advocating more flat taxes which is the hardest on poor people.
Ron Paul wants to privatize government agencies.He sounds like George Bush the neo-conservative. Are Liberatarians the new Nep-cons?
Michelle Bachmann has demonized Barack Obama as well. But she is an establishment candidate.. What a hypocrite Michelle Bachmann is to complain about Freddie and Fannie who paid for her home. And Bachmann was so stupid to call Freddie and Fannie stupid when they paid for her home. You know if Bachmann gets anywhere close to the executive branch Fannie and Freddie will be living high on the hog since they bought her house.
There was a lot of fear mongering and very few answers.
They are going to unwind Freddie and Fannie like they did UBS?
Where is the old guard? Where is the Republican Party I grew up with? They don't seem to exist any longer.
And they are pushing more corporate agenda's. Computerized medical records aren't without their controversy. One can go to the doctor and the computer sends the prescription to the pharmacy but it never actually gets there.
Gringrich wants the states to experiment on people but he was for brain cognitive science which I agree that needs to be funded. And he finally admitted Autism is one of the greatest challenges facing America and it is.
Again Bachmann should have shut her mouth as she claimed Barack Obama, aka the devil to Michelle Bachmann, intentional caused the social security crisis but she also claimed no more taxes. So how can social security stay solvent without taxing workers? The entire deal of social security is workers pay into to take care of the elderly and disabled and when they become elderly or disabled they are given social security.
Student loan debt is about a trillion dollars and it is also being transferred to the public.
In this debate they really fail to capture the optimism of the promise of a new president. Whoever gets the nomination, which I believe it will be Romney, will really need to have an optimistic message of hope or it will be another four years for Obama.
But Romney is sounding an awful lot like the Bushes. It is my assesment Romney won the debate although there were a few good performances by other candidates. In particularly, Jon Huntsman specifically talk to China and tarrifs wars causing trade wars which is a really important issue.
Who Will You Vote For the GOP Candidate?
It is now twp years later. October of 2013. Romney did get the nomination but in the end they both sounded like the Bushes. Unemployment is still critically high which means that social security is going to be insolvent because no one has jobs to pay into it. Healthcare has become privatized which means there is no accountability and the healthcare exchange has been disasterous but what is worse is that we are faced with raising the debt ceiling to give an exceptionally poor performing Congress yet another salary raise. DC has been on paiod furlough while outside the beltway Americans would give their eye teeth just to have a job let alonw a job which pays you to stay home.
It is the foiurteenth day of our government being shut down while they pay all of their employees to sit home? Government apporval rating is as low as it was during the great depression. Quite frankly I am surprised that ten percent of the country believes Congress is doing a good job. That seems like a high percentage to me given the state of the nation.
