According to CNSNews article, “Pelosi: Her Catholic Faith ‘Compels’ her to support same sex marriage,” just makes me want to say OMG!

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that her Catholic faith “compels” her to “be against discrimination of any kind” and thus for same-sex marriage.

A reporter asked Pelosi: “Many of the people that are opposed to gay marriage cite their religion as the reason why they’re opposed. You’re a Catholic that supports gay marriage. Do you believe that religion and the idea that you can support gay marriage can be separated? And how do you grapple with the idea that you support gay marriage as a Catholic?”

Pelosi responded: “My religion has, compels me–and I love it for it–to be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider this a form of discrimination. I think it’s unconstitutional on top of that. So I think that yesterday was a great day for America because the president in a very personal, as well as presidential way, made history, and hopefully this will bring people together on the issue,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi also said that the president “went a long way” in shortening the difference between the “inevitable and the inconceivable” of the introduction of same-sex “marriage.”

She further said: “It’s a matter of time. It’s all about time. And on these issues, what is inevitable to some of us is inconceivable to others and what we want to do is shorten the difference between the inevitable and the inconceivable and I think the president went a long way in doing that yesterday.”

Love how she used the word “inconceivable”. This reminds me of the character from the movie “The Princess Bride,” who used that word endlessly. If you haven’t seen the movie, watch it because it is “inconceivable” that anyone uses that word anymore.

Nancy, Nancy what are we going to do about you? You claim you are a devote Catholic but then you say things like this? I really think she has some form of dementia or is it because she wants to just jump on the bandwagon for political purposes? She and Joe Biden should take a long hard look at their devotion to being Catholic. It may be time for them to change their religion.

During this political year, it seems that all kinds of things are coming out that the presidential candidates did in the past. Obama ate dog meat when he was younger, smoked pot and did cocaine in high school. But Romney “bullied” a kid in high school by cutting off his long hair.

What a crime of the century! Mitt Romney cut off the hair of a high school boy in his school. Well CNN just had to bring on a psychologist to help us understand this type of behavior.They were talking about the repercussions of bullying and how it affects the lives of adults – the bully and the one being bullied. What a bunch of hogwash! I’m sure we have had incidents in high school that we weren’t proud of but we turned out okay.

So for the sake of transparency, I have to make a confession from my high school years. It was my Senior year, in fact it was the last week of my Senior year. My friend and I were in study hall – yes they had study hall back then – and we were bored. So we were chatting it up like crazy. One of the teachers in the study hall told us to be quiet not once but three times. Of course, we ignored him because we were Seniors. As a result, we were told to stand in the corner for the rest of the study hall period. We were embarrassed and never went back to study hall because we ditched that class the rest of the week.

There, I said it and now I feel better. I know it wasn’t a bully incident but we were being undisciplined and rude and well just being Seniors. So now I won’t be able to run for higher office in this country because of this incident.

How ridiculous is this? But when you can’t find anything else to demean another candidate, I guess you have to go back to his high school years and maybe elementary school to find out “dirt” about a candidate. Hold on tight everyone, this election year is going to be nasty and dirty and downright idiotic. Focus on the what we the people really are looking for in a president and not what the main stream media wants us to pay attention to.

Well it’s about time!

For over a year, Eric Holder has been stonewalling, twisting his story and covering up what he knew and didn’t know about Fast and Furious. According to an article by Katie Pavlich of Townhall, Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee said that within weeks he will file contempt charges against Eric Holder.

Holder still won’t comply with congressional subpoenas for the Fast and Furious documents. Many of the documents were due by February 9 and now it is near the end of April.

You may not know but Katie Pavlich has written a book titled “Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup” that delves into this subject. I have not had a chance to read the book but I’m sure she has done extensive research on this subject. She was on Bill O’Reilly the other night discussing her book and it seems that old Bill was skeptical about her findings. I’m not, I have read a lot of Katie Pavlich articles and she is a true journalist and deals only in facts.

As Katie says in her article, “The question now becomes, will perjury charges follow charges of contempt? After all, Holder has changed his testimony about what he knew and when he knew about Fast and Furious multiple times, under oath in front of Congress.”

Chairman Issa should also be looking into what Janet Napolitano, the third Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, also knew about this as well. How far up the chain of command did this go? Maybe we’ll have a May or June surprise coming soon that will shake up this Administration.

Hilary Rosen, an advisor to the Obama Administration and DNC, just made her fifteen minutes of fame by trashing Ann Romney as a woman who has not worked a day in her life so she should have no opinion on the economy and how it affects women.

Isn’t that the most ridiculous thing you have ever heard in your life!

Who is this Hilary Rosen? I believe she is nothing but a feminist hag who loves to disrespect all women who don’t follow lock-step into her world. Also I think she is a plant from this Administration to detract from the real issues of the day.

The number of Americans filing for jobless aid rose last week to the highest level since January. The jobless claims data comes in the wake of Friday’s disappointing employment report for March, which showed the economy created 120,000 new jobs, the smallest amount since October. Instead the headlines of the day are about Rosen, a feminist hag, who has a vendetta against stay at home moms.

So do you think that is the reason why the DNC sent her out to trash Ann Romney? Just to deflect the real issues of our economy? Get ready for more of this to happen between now and November.

Rosen thinks being a stay at home mom shouldn’t have an opinion or even know what is going on in this world. I totally disagree with her premise.  Ann Romney and I are about the same age. We are both highly educated women but we took different paths because of our situations. I stayed home with my two boys until the economy crashed during Jimmy Carter’s presidency in the 70’s. At that time the economy sucked. Gas prices were high and were being rationed, cost of groceries were high – just like it is today.  I had no choice but to find work to help out. Being a mom and a full-time employee was hard but I did it for my family not for the feminism cause. Isn’t that what happens to keep a family together?

I admire women who stay at home and not work. They are the ones who are very active in the PTA and other outside school activities.  They also are great at budgeting money as well as their time. They play roles that include teachers, nurses/doctors, psychologists, caregivers and chefs to name a few things. When a mom works she gives up some of these roles to daycare, schools and take out dinners.

Bringing home a paycheck feels good, but being a mom and wife feels terrific. If you can afford to stay home – stay home – if not don’t trash stay at home moms. For heaven sakes we are all sisters and should respect the way we choose to live.

But as you can tell, feminist hags just don’t get it.

This really boils my blood!

As you may know, President Obama early this week told his Russian counterpart, Medvedev, to give him “space” so that he could have “more flexibility” after the 2012 presidential election in regard to missile defense issues. First of all, what does that mean and second of all if it means what I think it means, then Obama wants to give up our defenses to please the Russians.

Now I was brought up during the days when you did not trust the Communists in Russia. You kept them at arm’s length and showed peace through strength – yes just like Ronald Reagan said. Now the Obama administration wants to give in to them and I wouldn’t trust any communist as far as I could through them, especially Putin.

Obviously, Mitt Romney, GOP candidate running for President, also feels the same way when he said that “Russia is the geopolitical foe.” Makes sense to me. But the communist propaganda machine, Pravda, revved up its rhetoric against him.

According to the Weekly Standard, in an op-ed posted on Pravda’s website said this: “Electing Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States of America would be like appointing a serial paedophile as a kindergarten teacher, a rapist as a janitor at a girls’ dormitory or a psychopath with a fixation on knives as a kitchen hand. His comments on Russia are a puerile attempt at making the grand stage and boy, did he blow it…”

And that was only the beginning of their inflammatory remarks against Mitt Romney. Pravda goes on to question American democracy and say that Romney is just an “adolescent” school boy.  Somewhat like Condoleezza Rice did before the Bush regime was er…”elected” …, Mitt Romney takes the chance to mouth off about Russia, calling her “our number one geopolitical foe” which fights “every cause for the world’s worst actors”. Unfortunately, such vapid stupidity has become commonplace among senior US politicians, providing the rest of the world with a telling insight as to the real nature of the political class in that country – out of touch, out of date and dangerously jingoistic. In short, overgrown self-opinionated school boys with super-egos but nothing whatsoever to back it up with.”

Then, Pravda praises present Russian relations with the United States under President Obama. “Exactly at a time when Russia and the USA are finding that they have far more in common than differences, exactly when they see that they are much more friends than foes, when they see that there is so much to be gained through collaboration, a foul-mouthed, big-headed oaf like Romney with more money than sense makes a comment that reveals who he really is to the world: a pea-brained, pith-headed simpleton with too much testosterone and too little common sense, with zero tact, no diplomacy and a paramount grasp on the intricacies of world politics. A prize, good-for-nothing ignoramus,” writes Pravda.

The piece ends by threatening Romney. “So talking about geopolitical foes…next time Mitt Romney had better back off, butt out and mind his manners, so as not to appear like a foul-mouthed guttersnipe whose utter ignorance and pig-headed arrogance is only too clear for all to see. See how he walked straight into this one, ladies and gentlemen? Imagine THAT as your President…”

How dare these communist propagandists write an article like this! Butt out of our political system until you find some civility to your tone. Not only is this an attack piece but nasty and dirty propaganda that you have been preaching for over 70 years or more.

I don’t trust communists and never will. I know that I am not alone on this, ask the people of Poland, Hungry, Czechoslovakia and other countries you held under your thumb for all those years. They don’t want you back in their lives and I don’t want you in my life or in my country’s life.

I was listening to Rush Limbaugh this morning and he was talking about an article from AP News, titled “Obama peddles modest American dream.”

As Rush so eloquently pointed out that Obama’s message of Hope and Change has now turned to what he sees this country and its people in – mediocrity. However, this article sugar coats Obama’s message by saying that Obama wants to focus on the middle-class and what they are “feeling.”

I can tell you what we are “feeling” – a President who wants to take over our lives and tell us what to do, when to do it, and how to do it.

According to this article, Obama is pivoting and wants to deal with a different economic and political reality as he seeks re-election. He’s focused less on a lofty vision for overcoming divisions and remaking Washington, and more on the most basic building blocks of middle-class economic security: a job, a house, a college education for the kids, health care, money for retirement.

Obama said, “If you’re willing to put in the work, the idea is that you should be able to raise a family and own a home; not go bankrupt because you got sick, because you’ve got some health insurance that helps you deal with those difficult times; that you can send your kids to college; that you can put some money away for retirement.” “That’s all most people want,” he said. “Folks don’t have unrealistic ambitions. They do believe that if they work hard they should be able to achieve that small measure of an American Dream.”

A “small measure of an American Dream?” No, Mr. President this country was founded on the freedom to achieve as much as you can of the American Dream. As Rush Limbaugh appropriately pointed out, the President wants us to “fear” getting sick because we may go bankrupt. The President wants us to settle for a small 1200 square foot house, a lousy job, take the bus or train to work and then drive a Chevy Volt to mediocrity.

America do you want a life of mediocrity? Or do you want to have a life of personal achievement that only you can do without government help?

This November, do not settle for mediocrity- vote out Obama and let’s get this country on the right track once again.

I cannot stay silent any more. This country was founded on freedom of speech. I have been hearing “stories” where the government may be looking into facebook, bloggers, etc. who may be writing about this Administration that may be considered as disagreeing with them. Well, short of having any government official knocking at my door to arrest me for sedition, I am going to speak out when I see pure propaganda from this Administration. And believe me there are lots of wrong information coming from this Administration.

The latest propaganda and lie cannot go unchallenged. Recently, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that Republicans “forced” President Obama to deny the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. Later during his press briefing he said that Obama didn’t turn down the pipeline, no it was all the fault of the Republicans. OMG!

He said, “In terms of Keystone, as you all know, the history here is pretty clear. And the fact is because Republicans decided to play political with Keystone, their action essentially forced the administration to deny the permit process because they insisted on a time frame in which it was impossible to completely approve the pipeline.”

You can see his press briefing at Real Clear Politics link here.

In all of my years I have never heard such propaganda and pure lies coming from our government as I have been hearing now. Remember, believe half of what you hear and nothing what you see.

This should be in the category of the pot calling the kettle black. According to the Washington Examiner, the Obama-Biden reelection campaign is stepping up fundraising to help them fight back the “smear” machine from GOP front-runner Mitt Romney.

In an email to supporters this morning, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina warned that the Republicans will have a fat bank account to tap for negative ads, something both Romney and Newt Gingrich did in Florida.

“They’re going to try to spend and smear their way to the White House,” Messina said about Republican groups and candidates.

One thing is for sure: the fall election is already setting up to be the most expensive in history, with Obama expected to spend $750 million-$1 billion and the eventual GOP challenger and Republican-leaning groups likely to join to spend over $500 million.

In fact, as President Obama was feting donors last night at the posh St. Regis hotel in downtown Washington and then a private home in Chevy Chase, Md., a Romney associate told the Examiner, “He’s going to need a lot of money.”

Here’s Messina’s note:

“I’m not going to beat around the bush. Take a look at these numbers from Florida and then chip in $3 or more to support a much different kind of presidential campaign.

Here’s just a sample of what went down:

— $15.3 million: How much money Mitt Romney and his backers spent in the state (compared to $3.4 million spent by Newt Gingrich and his groups). (Note: because he had the money to spend, so what!)

— 13,000: The number of advertisements put on the air on Mitt’s behalf as of mid-week last week. Newt had about 200. (Note: so what again!)

— 92: The percentage of these ads that was negative. (Note: some were and some told the truth nothing different from what the Democrats will be doing.)

That’s ugly, and it tells us a lot about what to expect from Romney, or whoever wins the Republican nomination. They’re going to try to spend and smear their way to the White House. (Note: I’m sure you will be doing the same!)

These super PACs can dominate the airwaves, but what they can’t do is mobilize volunteers on the ground.

We’re doing this the right way — will you help?

Thanks,

Jim Messina

Campaign Manager

Obama for America”

This is so unbelievable! Already the Democrats are smearing Romney and just about every Republican candidate as well as Congressmen and women and Senators. My comments are in the “Note” section because Jim Messina is nothing but a hawker for the Democrats. I guess he understands fully about “smear” tactics because he also employs the same tactics he’s accusing the GOP of doing!

During a post-Florida interview on CNN, Romney attempted to explain his focus as president would be to restore economic prosperity for America’s battered middle class but he also said that he wasn’t concerned about the very poor.

Now if you stop there, you would say, WHAT!

But you need to hear the rest of his comment. He said that the most indigent among us already have a generous safety net on which to fall back (welfare, SCHIP, Medicaid, etc), and that very well-off citizens are doing just fine on their own.

But what you will hear from the mainstream media as well as Democrats is that Mitt Romney doesn’t care about the poor!  Democrats’ entire strategy against Romney, if he’s the nominee, is to beat the class warfare drum loudly and relentlessly to try to drown out President Obama’s demonstrable failures.  There’s nothing that Team Romney can do to prevent Democrats from employing this cynical strategy, but their candidate should consciously avoid making his opponents’ job any easier.

It’s too bad that our politicians can’t say what they feel and probably what the average American feels without being excoriated by the media and the Democrat machine. I totally understood what he was saying because he is right. There is enough help for the very poor; unfortunately it is the taxpayers who are taking care of them. The middle class has the real problem – they make too much money for government help and not enough money to be able to pay for high prices, i.e. gas, health care, groceries, etc. I guess that’s why they call it middle class because you are caught in the middle and can’t get help or make enough money to pay for essentials.

As far as I am concerned this was no gaffe but much ado about nothing. But hold on – there will be more Democrat misquotes to come in the near future.

Over the weekend, Representative Allen West took his message to a Palm Beach County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner. Rep West is a Republican and no fan of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and President Barack Obama. He basically told them to take their class warfare rhetoric message “the hell out of the United States of America.!”

He said: “Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.”

“This is about 100 percent America.”

“This is a battle field.”

“I will not allow President Obama to take the United States of America and destroy it.”

Ho Rah Representative Allen West! Well said like a true retired Army lieutenant colonel
