The New Star Wars Kid

With all of the country's problems solved, Pres. Obama takes a little play time. What a joke. Unfortunately the joke is on us.

Sen. Bob Casey Doesn't Deserve Your Vote

Sen. Casey has voted lock step with Pres. Obama's policies. Without exception he has voted completely along party lines contributing to the massive gridlock that is what passes for governance in Washington D.C. these past 4 years.

If those policies had led to America being in better shape than when the current Pres. took office, you may be able to make a case for re-electing him. Unfortunately for all of us, that just isn't remotely reality.

Unemployment continues to hover at 8%. A staggering increase in welfare recipients. The Senate blocking every jobs bill that comes to them from the House. Gas still close to $4. per gallon. Middle East turmoil has increased including the rape and murder of our Libyan ambassador. I could go on and on but will finish by pointing out that Sen. Casey was also there during during the end of Pres. Bush's second term when things really start snowballing downhill.

Honestly, other than being born into political royalty, what can you say about Sen. Casey? Nothing other than he, like the President he has blindly followed, has been an abject failure. He doesn't deserve your vote and frankly I'd vote for anybody short of Satan to replace him.

Who Won the Presidential Debate?

I've always liked an aggressive style when debating and clearly Pres. Obama was by far the more aggressive last night.

I think the President clearly won on nearly every foreign policy issue (all 3 that were brought up) mostly because Rmoney decided to agree with him on all of them.

Whoever in Mitt's camp came up with the plan to appear as the super amiable moderate should be kicked in the nuts repeatedly. I understand that with 2 major sporting events on television that they assumed most viewers would be women but really, what woman wants a man that appears soft?

The only points I think Mitt clearly scored were on domestic issues  which he handily won all of them. The Pres. cannot overcome his dismal record which is why he spent the last 2 debates on the attack. If you can't run on your record, conventional wisdom is to attack and try to destroy your opponent. I think Pres. Obama has tried that but came off looking rather non-presidential and more than a wee bit scared.

We are in the last two weeks and I cannot wait to see the ads that are bound to come out!!

What can we expect from tonight's Presidential debate?

I doubt we will see anything new. In other words, Pres. Obama will spend much of his remarks addressing that nothing is his fault and that he killed Osama bin Laden. He may spend a brief blink or 2 blaming Hillary for the Libyan Fiasco.

What I want to hear is if Rmoney actually has some foreign policy positions other than peace through superior firepower (of which I am a limited fan). 

The real questions are how much both candidates will abuse the moderator and just how much bias the moderator will show.

What Will Be The Effect of Repealing the Bush Tax Cuts?

So much political hay has been made of the Bush Tax Cuts that I feel that since the media won't take a look at the issue in earnest, yours truly must.

First, the moment Pres. Obama extended the cuts, they became his. So continuing to call them the Bush Tax Cuts is pure political gamesmanship.

Second, calling them tax cuts for the rich is equally just political bullcrap. Everybody that actually pays income taxes got a cut. How the left thought that people that don't pay federal income tax could get a cut is beyond any rational comprehension. Basic math tells us that even if we reduced the rate for those that didn't get a cut by 100%, the effect is zero cut. 100% of 0 is in fact 0. Don't blame me, blame math.

Now that we have that out of the way, let's look at the numbers, shall we? If the cuts are taken away from everybody making $250,000 per year or more, the government will raise an additional $82 billion in revenue. Sounds like a lot, doesn't it? To any normal person that is huge. To our government it is almost nothing.

How can I say that? For FY 2012, our illustrious government is planning on spending $3.8 Trillion (3,800,000,000,000). So just how far would that additional $82 Billion   (82,000,000,000) carry us? Eight lousy days. Yep, just 8 DAYS!!!

Think those numbers are mind boggling? Let me go one further. That $82 Billion would cover just 30 days of our current deficit spending. You know, the money we are borrowing to continue the country's insane spending binge. 

Do you still think that repealing the tax cuts will even put a dent in this country's problems??? It won't even put a nick in them.

President Obama Showed Up For The Debate

And still lost. I was glad for the President to prove he wasn't the mope that showed at the first debate. I think he did far better this time around but still failed on many of the big points especially Libya and the economy.

He came out directly stating he wants another assault weapons ban which I think will hurt him with the voters.

My wife watched the debate with me and believe me she is a very moderate person politically, her comment was Pres. Obama came off poorly and was very unbelievable. She was almost as incredulous as I was when Rmoney more or less directly told the President he has been a complete failure and Pres Obama's response was crickets. Of course I have said before that Pres. Obama is a lot of things and stupid isn't one of them. Even he knows he cannot run on his record. His record as Pres. is deplorable and in fact not defensible.

I will say they both beat the snot out of the moderator!!

Presidential Debate 2- Electric Blame Bush-a-roo

Tonight's the night and I genuinely cannot wait. I think this debate will be even better than the first as I believe Pres. Obama is going to come out swinging and make the same mistake Joe Biden did, only

Pres. Obama didn't show up for the first debate and instead had Clint Eastwood's empty chair on the stage with Rmoney. The problem is the empty chair made Obama look very foolish although not quite as goofy as Biden looked in the VP debate.

I believe Pres Obama is going to come out and try to tie Romney to all the Bush policies. Aside from just about every rational person in the country being tired of the buh, buh, BUH, BUT BUSH bullshit (let's face it Obama has yet to accept any culpability in his failures), the problem is that Obama has continued and or extended most of Bush's policies. The Bush Tax Cuts? Those belong to Obama now. The further eroding of freedoms? All on you Barry. Killing people around the world with robot drone strikes? yep, old B-Rock is all over that. The list is really rather endless.

If I were Mitt, every time he tries that shit I would just remind him that he has continued that path. Worse still, when he tries any new Obamanism, it fails miserably. If Pres Obama does the whole shaking his head and laughing at inappropriate times like Biden, I'd just turn to him and say " Mr President, are you feeling okay? Because I sure as heck don't see what is funny about Iran having nuclear weapons".

I'd also ask the President of these United States if he felt poor Hillary has taken enough of a beating covering up for the men in her life. And if so, why make her throw herself under the bus on the Libya cover up?

Now that I've got my snark out of the way, if you still think the debates aren't complete set-ups feel free to read the pre-debate agreement betwixt the candidates and moderators here. Don't you think it is a damn shame we can't have an honest, real debate between the candidates for the highest office in the country???

RIP Arlen

We may have differed in opinion on occasion but you were indeed a good man at heart, I wish you well on the next leg of your journey. 

You had a unique ability that is sorely lacking in DC these days. You always knew that compromise was key to ever getting anything done down there in the "suck". Perhaps the congresscritters on both sides can catch a clue. If not I hope you haunt them.

Romney's Tax Returns and Obama's College Transcripts

During a recent Romney campaign stop, a heckler from the audience hollered, "Hey Mitt Witt, where are you hiding your tax returns?

Governor Romney politely responded, "I've found a very secure place that I'm certain they won't be found."

The insistent heckler, then shouted, "And just where is that, dummy"?

Governor Romney smiled and said, "They are underneath Obama's college records, his passport application, his immigration status as a student, his funding sources to pay for college, and his Selective Service registration.

"What's your next question?"

Thanks to Rick H.

Who won the Vice Presidential debate?

I would give the edge to Biden for just one reason; I like my political debaters to be aggressive. Joe Biden was by far the more aggressive of the 2. He definitely did what Pres. Obama failed to do.

However, I cannot for the life of me make any sense out Biden making faces and his constant laughter. He was laughing more than anything and at the least it made him seem delusional. At the worst it made him look like he was hopped up on meth or disco biscuits.

I will give Ryan credit for remaining professional and being articulate. Biden often rambled so far off the subject I lost track of what the question he was attempting to answer was. I think the next time Ryan goes into a debate he will have learned from his mistakes in this one.

A free tip for Ryan; When you were talking about the danger of Iran becoming a nuclear power and Joe Biden was laughing as you spoke, the correct response would've been; " Joe, are you insane? I cannot see any humor in Iran having nuclear weapons!" and then continue your answer. 

Like any rational person, I see nothing remotely funny about Iran going nuclear. I'd like Joe Biden to explain to his fellow American's exactly what he finds so humorous about it.

Ryan Vs Biden Vice Presidential Debate

This may even top the time my daddy rented a stubborn mule as the worst ass whipping in history.

Ryan is going to positively destroy Joe Biden and I can't help but feel bad for crazy old Joe. He does a dandy job of making himself look like the village idiot but that will be nothing compared to what Paul Ryan does to him tonight.

You can join the Luzerne County Republicans at their debate watch party at Rodano's in Wilkes-Barre. Details here Debate Watch Party.

I'll be watching this from home again with a nice follow up on my take tomorrow.

Press Release from Congressman Barletta

Rep. Barletta Clear Winner of First Debate

Hazleton, PA - Tonight, U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta was the clear winner in the first debate between the incumbent congressman and Democratic challenger, Gene Stilp. 

Rep. Barletta clearly explained the challenges facing the 11th District and the nation, and proposed solutions in a wide range of subject areas, from job creation to foreign policy to energy.

"Lou Barletta showed he is not afraid to tackle the the tough issues, solve America's problems, and put Americans back to work," said Lance Stange, Campaign Manager.

"Stilp, on the other hand, offered vague, evasive answers and untruths to hide his lack of understanding of the issues and his shocking lack of plans or even ideas on how to save essential government programs that help seniors, the sick, and the poor."

Nude Photos of Michelle Obama

I bet that title got some attention and now that I have it;

This is a quote from my friend Gort42's blog; The Luzerne  County GOP picnic had about 50 attend but they have gone back to the old ways of fighting each other. Urbanski won the Chair so the Casey supporters will boycott everything. More on that later in the week.

While I can certainly imagine what he will write, I thought I would chime in with my not so humble opinion. 

First, I never really was a Casey "supporter" and we disagreed, sometimes vehemently, on many things. That being said, I have heard nothing of an organized boycotting of any county events. Terry Casey and I most often disagreed on his "big tent" theory of including all no matter what their transgressions may be. My point was always; If they actively work against the party or in fact campaign for Democrats when we have a Republican candidate, who needs them. Terry never saw it that way.

It is a well known and established fact that even when Casey was chairman of the county party that there were members of the executive committee as well as elected committee people that actively campaigned for Democratic Party candidates. This didn't start under Casey's chair but long before. Frankly, I won't name names or "out" all of those in the County Republican Party that do this as they are all well known and can be seen at any large Democratic fundraiser. Think any Yudichak, Mundy, or Pashinski fundraiser and you'll probably recall seeing them there. (btw, I do in fact keep a ledger)

Do I understand supporting a friend running for office? Sure I do but when you sit on the executive committee of your county's party, you cannot do it. Period, end of story.

Well those that were best at this duality are now back running the county party. Does this mean I won't go to a county event? Absolutely not!! I haven't heard one other person tell me that they are boycotting anything either. Fact is I will probably see some of you at the Luzerne County Republican's Fall dinner!!

More Presidential Debate

By now we've all seen or heard some funny quotes about the debates last night. My personal favorites were; Dennis Miller "Obama better hope a kicked ass is covered by Obamacare" and ironically, from the uberdouche himself, Bill Maher "Obama made a lot of great points tonight. Unfortunately most of them were for Romney".

As a conservative, I think it is very important for our side to stay classy about Pres. Obama's stunning defeat last night. The far left has a penchant for being nasty, insulting, mouthbreathers and I think we should take a higher road than the Chimpy McFlightsuit crew.

Pres. Obama is a lot of things but stupid isn't one of them. he will come into the next debate far more prepared and won't look nearly as clueless as he did last night. 

What we have to look forward to now is the VP debates. I actually feel bad for Joe Biden. He had his hands full with Palin and let's be honest, she isn't exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer. Ryan will blow him away like a tumbleweed in a tornado. It will be both hilarious and sad to watch.

The First Presidential Debate

I am surprised that both candidates actually answered questions. This may be a first!!

Who won was obvious but it certainly wasn't a blowout. Congratulations Mr. Romney, you did well. You better get ready for the next one as I think President Obama is going to come in a little more prepared.

Romney was nowhere near as robotic as I thought he would be and Pres. Obama kept his uhs and ums to a manageable level.

Presidential Debate Drinking Game

I humbly offer 2 choices for your debate drinking game.

First, if you have to drive home after the debate, this one is for you. The rules are quite simple.
Every time either candidate actually answers a question you have to take a drink. I can almost guarantee you will be stone cold sober.

Second, if you have a designated driver or are watching from home, this one is for you.

Every time Pres. Obama says inherited, previous administration, Bush, uh, or um- you have to take a drink.

Every time Romney comes off looking and or talking like a robot- you have to take a drink.

If you follow those simple rules, you will be annihilated, blotto, wrecked, plowed, murdered, 3 sheets to the wind, bombed etc.

Enjoy the debate though I seriously doubt we will see anything new tonight.
