About Me

My name is Gary, and I am somewhat of a political junkie. My mother was a liberal, my father, conservative. I am more of a moderate, but cannot stand the way the Republican party has been hijacked by the far right!! Big Bill and Hillary Clinton supporter!! Interests include weather, politics, sports, poker and late 60's and 70's music!!

Obama spends only 6 minutes on foreign policy in SOTU speech. Too little??

I know the economy and jobs are the #1 issues with people around the country, and he did spend a lot of time addressing those issues, but to me, spending only 6 minutes on foreign policy with the challenges we face in the world was just not enough. Iran, Afghanistan, North Korea, Russia, China, the Middle East in general, Asia, all should have at least been mentioned. While domestic issues are rightly being the main topic talked about, foreign policy is also a critical area that Obama must also address.

World issues are a strength for this president, and he's done a lot, along with Hillary, in changing the scope of our foreign policy from Mr. Cowboy. Play up that strength Mr. President. It's a winner for you!!

Tonight, millions of Republicans are happy, while millions more are sweating bullets!!!

The kook wing of the Republican party are delirious tonight with Newt's win, while others like Susan Molinari, Peter King and their minions are scared to death of what could happen if Newt were to somehow pull off a huge upset and actually get the nomination.

Don't think it'll happen, but it's nice to know the civil war in Republican land will continue for a while.

Has anyone ever had a worse week than Mitt Romney has had this week??

Going from running away with the election with a South Carolina win, to 2 horrible debates, questions about his taxes, and his utter failure at trying to answer them, to now being as much as 6 points behind Newt Gingrich, and lowering expectations for a win.

The man has gone from on top of the mountain to falling all the way down the mountain.

Willard has had a horrible week.

Bill Clinton; MSNBC "Our version of Fox"

Clinton had an interview with Esquire magazine and called MSNBC "Our, (Democratic), version of Fox"!! Clinton blamed insatiable demand for cable news. "We have so many news and media outlets now, they have contributed to more contentious and a more divisive public discourse and less to actual reporting of the news and facts surrounding it".

Huntsman wasn't the problem, his party is the problem!!!

There is no room for people like Jon Huntsman in the Republican party. I liked Huntsman, but he's got to realize the Republican party the way it's set up, will never accept someone who is not BSC.

Now that Huntsman is out, the remaining candidates are just fodder for the nutbags to fight over.

Sad!!

Winners and losers #10

Winners and losers for the week

Winners;
1, Rick Santorum; Yup, little Ricky is the latest stooge to surge in the Iowa polling, running neck and neck with both Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. Looks like the teabaggers are flocking towards Ricky because Mitt has problems with his flip-flopping and Ron Paul has problems with looking like a total asshole. Just think if little Ricky wins Iowa, this throws the whole nominating process right out the door. Go Ricky!!

2, Nat Geo Wild; The network gets a gold star for its segments on saving the big cats around the world like lions, tigers, cheetahs and leopards. Stars like Betty White, Sarah Mc. Lachlan, Nancy Cartwright and Casey Anderson have starred in these commercials and have given their time and effort into this great cause.

Losers;
1 Hugo Chavez; Man this idiot is really a pathetic loser. Now he speculates that the US somehow is able to give leftist Latin American leaders cancer. Yes Hugo, the US is actively trying to come up with ways to spread cancer around Latin America, and especially their leaders. Everytime this boob opens his mouth the total stupidity that flows from it, simply amazes me!!

2, Newt Gingrich; If the latest polls are any indication, Newtie is fallen to fourth place behind Paul, Romney and Santorum!! His positive campaigning lasted about 3 seconds, and is now back attacking Paul in new ads. Don't you just love sitting back and watching Newtie explode??!!!

3, Michelle Bachmann; Not only is her campaign flailing in the winds, people and money are leaving her left and right. This does not bode well for a campaign that maybe well on its way to imploding and having to drop out of the race.
