Good morning everyone!
UPDATED: THIS DEBATE SUCKED. THE QUESTIONS SUCKED. IF THE CANDIDATES CAN’T GO AFTER MITT ROMNEY IN THIS PARTICULAR DEBATE, IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, AT THIS TIME… THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO TAKE ON OBAMA. THIS DEBATE REVEALED EVERY SINGLE CANDIDATE AS WEAK. WTF?
Well it is debate weekend showdown. We will find out if these candidates have what it takes to beat Mittens or if they are part of his coalition of stooges. I know there are some internet rumors floating that both Perry and Santorum could be helping Mitt which may be why any attacks or criticisms dished either way are with soft gloves. We will find out this weekend. If there was ever a time for Mitt to be called out for his record, it would be now. Clearly Newt is not a stalking horse for Mitt, we will find out about the others.
If they are all really in it to win it, this is going to be a blood bath this weekend. I don’t mean with nasty, false personal attacks but there is plenty to attack Mitt on with regards to his record, his history of flip flops and lying to keep people busy.
I have a conference at our church this morning and then regular weekend stuff but I will be tuning in to the debates and don’t forget that Gov. Palin will also be on with Judge Jeanine tonight on Fox. We will post the interview when it is available.
Friday news dump:
Yes, I hope it is Mitt’s weekend from hell.
While I like the letter Rubio sent Obama, I think he is just angling for VP.
This guy is aiming for VP too.
Not this guy, this military genius wants to be Sec. of Defense. He did say on Hannity that his endorsement will be “unconventional” and Hannity asked him if he would be endorsing someone not in the race right now. Cain said that was a possibility. I know many think it could be Sarah and maybe it is but I think it is likely Trump or someone else. Heck, it could be himself! I think he is just pimping it in way to make people think it is Sarah to get more attention. BUT it would be pretty cool it if was.
I haven’t given up yet on this guy but my support has softened. Wouldn’t take much to reaffirm it though.
He is going to find this to be political suicide.
More vetting and his tax plan isn’t getting good reviews.
Well looky, looky what they found…
Oh may! This is not going to play well with conservatives and Tea Partiers….
I just love Daniel Hannan!
What part of reduce spending does this guy not get?
Somebody’s listening to Gov. Palin’s advice…
Really, as if we didn’t know this? They will never put this guy on the stand, the defense is too worried about what he would say if the medication balanced him enough to stand trial.
here is some news out of Alaska…
This poll is NOT for strippers…
Ouch! but this has me curious. Why doesn’t Paul ever run attack ads against Romney? or have I missed them?
I find these tweets to be very interesting:
Rhymes w Shmoosweek: Gingrich SuperPAC to launch NUKE R BOMB! Shock film lays blame for US de-industrialization at feet of fmr Bain CEO!
Rhymes w Shmoosweek: Will soon-to-be-released ‘secret’ film expose Mitt’s glass jaw!
Now, if one were a super smart candidate they would see a crowded field of very flawed candidates and one VERY nasty Mittens and likely make the assumption that Mr. Nasty Mittens will play dirty and systematically eliminate the entire field of candidates except maybe Ron Paul. Then if said candidate knew this bombshell film was going to be released they might choose to just sit it out and wait for the bloodbath to be over. They would know that Mittens will be forced to exit the race mid-primary leaving the field with only significantly wounded candidates that have been fairly vetted and found to be extremely lacking in one way or the other. The entire GOP primary would need a do-over. What on earth will the GOP do? My guess is this film might not only take Mittens out but also leave a nasty taste in voters mouths for any elite establishment type. Hmmmmmm…….. who would be the torch bearer for reform? Sounds like I’ll be going to the movies pretty soon.
UPDATE: I want to point out that this film is not about class warfare or anti-capitalism. This film is about what happens when you put someone devoid of morality, devoid of loyalty and hungry for money and power in charge. It is perfectly acceptable to look at Romney’s private sector experience to decide what kind of leader he would be. We need a job creator, not a job destroyer/exporter. I don’t want a President who has a track record of helping other countries by sending them our jobs.
Doug Brady at C4P has an excellent article showing how Romney’s actions at Bain will be used against him. He makes a great point that it isn’t whether the ads are 100% truthful, it is whether they are effective. These ads/film will be VERY effective.
Here are two sneak peeks:
UPDATED – somebody had the videos pulled and the links are not working. So I replaced them with some video that does work. Bwaaahhhhaaaaa!!!
Here is an article about one of the skeletons in Romney’s Bain closet.
This book looks interesting…
I bet Romney is proud of this endorsement!
Stacy Drake has a great article on Hot Air vs Palin.
Canadian gets Palin…
I will show Palin’s interview with Judge Jeanine but I didn’t think Pirro’s questions were any better:
OK everyone, I’ll update this thread in the morning with more news after the Sunday debate.
Have a great weekend and do something good for others!
