What’s Up? Wednesday





Good morning everyone!

So where do we go from here? What does everyone see in their magic eight balls?

I got bored last night so after Rove called Michigan for Romney I went to bed. I figured an early nights rest would do me some good. I am also hoping that just like Iowa, Rove would be wrong when I wake up.

Clearly Romney won Arizona which is fine with me since I didn’t want to see a Santorum sweep.  I really didn’t want a Romney sweep as he will use it as a launch for a comeback but I would rather have that than Santorum sweeping another Tuesday night again. That would have been a bigger hurdle to clear.  My hope was that Romney would win Arizona and Santorum would win Michigan. That would pretty much break it even for momentum but it appears that Romney won both. Game changer?  No because he is significantly weakened going into super Tuesday as Gov. Palin points out in this interview with the NYT.

This all makes Super Tuesday loaded for fun!

News Roundup:

First, tip of Mitt?  umm… not sure that was the right words to say… I NEVER want to go there…

LMAO!  Way to go Doug! Man I love the good ole days…

We already knew this

I want to be just like him when I grow up…

So Santorum did this and Romney is whining about it. While I think it would be a smart move for Rick to do in a general election, if you can’t get the GOP to vote for you in their primary but you can get the Dems, you are running for POTUS in the wrong party…  As for Romney’s whining… someone please remind him of this

This might influence some…

OK, do it. I’m happy for you but I’m even more happy that you actually said you will be leaving the White House at some point.

So I hear that Gov. Palin was awarded a Razzie for playing herself. I find this amusing considering the movie was a documentary (so no actors) and Palin did not participate (so no role or acting). Well, I guess when they expected Tina Fey clips and got a friendly, sane, intelligent, likeable, honest, accomplished and real Palin they must have been very disappointed… It must have been devastating when so many people that worked with Palin also reaffirmed who she really is.  So which is it Hollywood?  Game Change claims she is nothing but fake and a really good actress and the Razzies say she is a horrible actress and too darn real… Oh the tangled web they weave…

This would make things interesting…

No Snowe for Maine… does that mean they are now going to sprout some palm trees? This sure blows a hole in Hatch’s plan…

This is refreshing…

Now this is a real problem…

Yep, definitely taking advice from Palin.  This is good…

When I owe the IRS $4,ooo this year… crap like this really chaps my hide.

He has such wisdom

Buckle up! The O Administration is playing for keeps

Have a great hump day!  We are on our way to the weekend!

    Good morning. Great roundup. The “big win” for Mittens is a big “meh” in my opinion.

  • section9

    Anyway, the MSM is desperate to push the narrative that Mitt is wrapping up the nomination and that everyone needs to fall in line.

    I personally believe that it is time for the Gov to get more active in a policy-oriented manner in order to drive the debate towards Reaganism. It’s time to challenge the moderates and hold their feet to the fire. Only Palin can do that.

    BTW, Erick Erickson at Redstate had a superb strategic overview of the thicket that the GOP finds itself in as the Party Elite crowns Mittens.

    • hrh40

      I don’t read Erick Erickson; he is a blogger for sale. As has been proven on numerous occasions.

      Occasionally he may have pertinent points, but he is not an objective observer. He has proven himself to be incredibly immature in times of duress.

      If you feel like passing on the superb bits, I’ll take a read. But Erickson’s ego does not need my hit traffic.

      • hrh40

        OTOH, bloggers I respect include Professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection, The Other McCain and Smitty, and Brian at the Right Scoop. I don’t agree with them all the time, but they don’t pitch hissy fits AFAICS. And they seem to allow a wider range of opinion than Erickson at RS.

      • section9

        Yes, he was a Perrybot. He was correct about Palin not running though, when I and others around C4P were not. However, bear in mind that even a broken clock is right twice a day.

          See… I just have to “chime” in here to prove yet again the myth that “even a broken clock is right twice a day”…
          http://www.philforhumanity.com/Broken_Clock_is_Right_Twice_a_Day.html

          I never did like that saying as it never really made any common sense to me! :)

        • hrh40

          I don’t mind that he was correct. But that was a CLASSIC case of his immaturity, i.e., his round the clock twitter countdown on 9/30 for Palin to announce.

          Not to mention his crying wolf over the Haley incident … when he had no bombshell ever forthcoming.

      • Firelight

        His article isn’t long so I cut and pasted it below.  I don’t agree that Jindal is the one to inject some much needed excitement and unity into the ticket but his points on Romney are right. As for Redstate, there are some writers I really like there but Erickson isn’t one of them. So to save everyone from having to go there, here is what he wrote:

        “When you have a candidate few people really like, whose support
        is a mile wide and an inch deep, whose raison d’etre (a 4am fancy word)
        is fixing an economy that is fixing itself without him, and who only
        wins his actual, factual home state by three percentage points against a
        guy no one took seriously only two months ago, there really is little
        reason for independent voters in the general election to choose him if
        the economy keeps improving.
        Seriously, putting it bluntly, conservatives may not like Barack
        Obama, but most other people do. And when faced with a guy you like and
        a guy you don’t like who says he can fix an economy that no longer
        needs fixing, you’re going to go with the guy you like.
        If Republicans in Washington are not panicked and trying desperately
        to pull Bobby Jindal in the race tomorrow, or someone like him, the
        party leaders must have a death wish.Mitt Romney continues to run an uninspiring campaign only able to win by massively outspending his opponents to tell voters how much worse
        the other guys are. That may work in the primary, but it will not work
        in a general election where the President of the United States won’t be
        outspent 5 to 1.
        Three percentage points. In his home state. In his wife’s home
        state. In the state his father served as Governor. Three percentage
        points against a guy few took seriously two months ago and who just
        three weeks ago no one expected to give Romney a run for his money in
        Romney’s home state.
        And this is our nominee — a guy who can only win in states with a
        home state advantage, New Englanders and New England transplants, and
        Mormoms. There are a lot more outside those categories than inside them
        and that is shaping up to cause him heartburn on Super Tuesday. And
        let me tell you what else is going to happen: Democrats sense such a
        strong vulnerability now and sniff a chance of a Santorum nomination,
        they aren’t going to wait for the general election to start dumping oppo
        research on Romney. Get ready Romney supporters, this is just the opening salvo.
        But I suspect he will be the nominee. At least we can be rid of him
        and, hopefully, his most ardent cheerleaders on November 7th when what
        the rest of us know will happen unless an economic catastrophe happens.
        Hello? Bobby Jindal? You paying attention?”

        • hrh40

          Thanks, Firelight.

          See? That’s why I don’t read him; he is not objective.

          Palin is 1,000 times more likely to inject excitement. EVERY fact on the ground backs that up. Including as recently as TWO WEEKS ago at CPAC. While the nation’s last memory of Jindal is his response to the 2009 SOTU … and his tepid stand for his state against the BO admin over the BP spill. (Remember that tweet that Palin gave to Jindal urging him to confront BO over the spill or something – that was mysteriously retracted a few hours later?)

          Erickson’s also wrong that the economy is fixing itself. I stopped reading right there.

          Read “Aftershock” by the Widener brothers and “The Creature from Jekyl Island” by Griffin for starters, to see that the economy will fail when the elites who run the world’s central banks, including the U.S. central bank, aka the Federal Reserve, allow it to.

          And for precisely political reasons and with precisely political timing. See: 2008 financial meltdown 6 weeks before the election.

          Read “The True Story of the Bilderberg Group” for the groups behind this control.

          The political and financial elites worldwide are in much more control than 90% of the world’s population realizes.

          Erickson doesn’t get that. So he gives the facile platitude that the economy is fixing itself.

          I repeat, he’s not worth reading. Read the above-mentioned books instead. You can get them through your library system.

          • LS as guest

            I’ve got to agree.  Despite his having a pretty good record as guv, Jindal comes across as weak.  He just does.  (And he is actually weak on a number of issues.)  Only the rare Beltway-insider wonk could get excited about him and, as they always like to say about the base–they’re already voting.

          • section9

            Uh, you’re absolutely right about the Palin vs. Jindal excitement-meter, but as the latest news is that Bristol is signed to do a reality series with Lifetime, I don’t exactly blame Erickson for calling on Jindal to jump in the race.

            Do you?

            It’s not as if Palin is doing anything material to counteract the Establishment’s slow death grip over the Party, other than saying a few things now and again about a broken convention.

            Erickson has no reason to believe that Palin will jump in this race now, or at the Convention. Nor does anyone else. Don’t blame him for that. Erickson is dealing with the GOP we have NOW, not as we wish it could be.

            If Palin wants to get in this race and change that, so much the better, but quite frankly, I think Erickson is dealing in reality. This race is turning into a catastrophe for the GOP.

            It couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of guys.

            • TENCOLE

              Right on section. Jindel’s just as good a candidate for a “non probable brokered convention” as anyone. 
              Sarah’s not really doing anything….a rare speech, a few pundit remarks and a facebook write up now and then is not what I’d call counterattacks, it’s all just to let people know she’s still around.
              I’m not sure what the heck Sarah’s doing or what her plans are….I don’t think she really knows either. The only thing I know for sure is that she wants Obama out, and I think she’ll do anything to do that….even support Romney “100%”….. I have to say I don’t find that very comforting.
              Between that and now Bristol……Let’s just say my head hurts and I’m just getting tired of it all.

              You’re right again, this whole thing is a catastrophe….and it’s only the primary. *sigh*

    Good Leap Year Wednesday Morning P4A Kids….

    Today is the accepted day where a woman can ask for a man’s hand in marriage.  Or in other words…get him really drunk..ask him to marry you and hope he forgets on March 1st….Is that wrong? :)   At least you can say…I tried! HA!

    Bristol was on Bob and Mark yesterday.  Seems she has a new Bo…as well as a new life!  Good for her.  Wants to change Trip’s name to Palin.  No sign of Levi…even better news. I hope there is audio of it somewhere. It was a very good interview.

    Again today I have to compare a Tammy Bruce rant to a Mark Levin Rant…I am sticking yet again with Levin.  Yesterday Levin pointed out that Romney and his pals were the one’s to help facilitate the open process in Michigan..then to whine about Santorum turning the tables and asking for dems to vote for him.  But…with her blind hatred for Santorum…she forgot to add in the part of Romney’s involvement with the process not only in Michigan..but other States. http://rebelpundit.com/2012/02/surprise-it-was-romney-backers-that-pushed-for-open-primary-in-michigan/  I fear “someone” is back to being to overwhelmed to actually do any real homework…just sayin’!  Take it with a grain of salt!

    Seems Polls show Gov. Walker will survive the recall…if so…What’s next Obama?  Firing squad?  Stupid Buttmunch! 

    On this day…
    1288 – Scotland established this day as one when a woman could propose marriage to a man. In the event that he refused the proposal he was required to pay a fine.
    1860 – The first electric tabulating machine was invented by Herman Hollerith.
    1904 – In Washington, DC, a seven-man commission was created to hasten the construction of the Panama Canal.
    1940 – Hattie McDaniel became the first black person to win an Oscar. She won Best Supporting Actress award for her role as Mammy in “Gone with the Wind.”
    1944 – The invasion of the Admiralty Islands began with “Operation Brewer.” U.S. General Douglas MacArthur led his forces onto Los Negros.
    1944 – Dorothy McElroy Vredenburgh of Alabama became the first woman to be appointed secretary of a national political party. She was appointed to the Democratic National Committee.
    1944 – The Office of Defense Transportation, for the second year in a row, restricted attendance at the Kentucky Derby to residents of the Louisville area. This was an effort to prevent a railroad traffic burden during wartime.
    1952 – In New York City, four signs were installed at 44th Street and Broadway in Times Square that told pedestrians when to walk.
    1964 – Dawn Fraser got her 36th world record. The Australian swimmer was timed at 58.9 seconds in the 100-meter freestyle in Sydney, Australia.
    1972 – Jack Anderson revealed a memo written by ITT’s Washington lobbyist, Dita Beard, that connected ITT’s funding of part of the Republican National Convention.
    1988 – “Day by Day” premiered on NBC-TV.

    Birthdays:

    Jimmy Dorsey, Dinah Shore, Gioacchino Rossini (Barber of Seville), John Philip Holland (invented the first sub accepted by the US Military)

    You all have a good day!

    Fellow
    patriots, it’s time to talk a little turkey about our situation.  IMO
    Sarah Palin will never again hold elective political office in our
    country unless WE the PEOPLE force the issue.

    Why not?  On Sept.3,2011 Palin stood in a field in Iowa and gave
    the most important speech of not just her lifetime, but ours as well.   

    And how did WE the PEOPLE respond?  Most of us ignored her call to
    arms and just switched the channel to find something more interesting to
    watch.

    For her transgression of telling us the truth about the PPC and the
    CCC, Palin is now considered to be one of the bastard stepchildren of
    the GOP – as are you and I.  To the GOP, WE the PEOPLE are just useful
    idiots.

    For now, I work and pray for a brokered convention, but even that may be a longshot now.

    Unlike you and I, most of our citizens still slumber and haven’t a
    clue of what’s headed our way.  Will we be able to rouse them in time? 
    Who knows?  I personally think ole BO will have to hit ‘em between the
    eyes with a 2×4 before they wake up.

    As for me, I’m going to cinch my belt and check my pantry.  I think
    WE are in for some rough weather before the sun shines again on
    whatever’s left of our republic.

    • pete4palin

      Let’s force the issue by doing a draft campaign for Sarah for President.  There’s nothing to loose and we would have something to do. This will require some leadership and a web site to start with.
