I’ve been out of the political loop, but I decided to tune in tonight and my eyes are bleeding! I thought perhaps things would change, but if anything, the international scene is worse. The world is on fire!
Can it be true that the President and the White House Intelligence has definitely tied the bombings, rioting and deaths at the Libyan consulate on this year’s 9/11 to Al Qaeda? Not a surprise to me . . . the ridiculous blame game on that “supposed” movie was a sham! Ambassador Susan Rice’s stand-up denial was such a ruse.
As Netanyahu talks about everyone wanting him and Israel to wait and watch to see what Iran will do, it blows my mind! I’m amazed that the Jewish vote in the North Eastern states and Florida hasn’t flipped from Obama to Romney in earnest, but the November election isn’t a done deal yet, is it?
What the hell is wrong with the American electorate? Rome is burning and the politicians are fiddling! Obama is still running his campaign juggernaut by visiting David Letterman and answering such softball questions as how much he weighs, and when asked about the National debt, which Letterman underestimates at $10 trillion . . .he can’t seem to remember . . .disgusting, come on Mr. President, you don’t know….perhaps that’s the problem!
Mr. Obama was also seen at a fabulous fundraiser dinner last night with Jay-Z and Beyonce where tickets went for $40,000 a ticket. The President was heard to say “Jay knows what my life is like. We both have daughters and our wives are more popular than us!” Who really cares Mr. President, the Mid-East is on fire, maybe you could make some statements about that?! People are rioting in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq, they want the Americans out of these Embassies, perhaps a few comments about that would be timely and important?
Before the fundraiser Obama is scheduled to attend a reception where families “can pose for a photo with him for a $12,500 contribution,” the New York Post reported. Oh Gawd! Please, is he above nothing for a few sheckles!!! It’s disgusting!
Meanwhile, we have Obama’s 1998 Loyola transcript stating how he believes in redistribution of wealth while NBC still states they won’t play it because it isn’t substantiated. Come on now, was it really a surprise? This is the exact quote “I think the trick is how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution, because I actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level, to make sure that everybody’s got a shot,” Obama is heard saying. So if you believe in redistribution, then this is the man for you!
Then the Obama’s camp is slamming Romney for his comment about the 47% who support Obama.
Romney’s comments at a May fund-raising event were (illegally?) recorded with a hidden camera. The video shows him telling his donors that nearly half of Americans back Obama because they rely on government support.
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what,” Romney says in one clip first posted on Monday afternoon. “There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing.” This comment is supposed to have upset people, but what is important is if Romney can help if elected and if the voting public agrees with him about the people’s dependency, don’t people want to work for what they get?
So I’m wondering if this trash-talking will change the staunch supporters of either man’s camp and how it will sway the independents and undecideds.
Thank God it’s only about 50 more days until the BIG VOTE!!
