The summary below of Barack and Michelle Obama's 6 year reign in the White House is by far the best I've ever read as it squarely hits the nail on the head.  And it took a black reporter writing it to make it as effective as it is. A white man's account would be instantly criticized by the liberal media as pure racism. But, how can anyone scream Racist when an exacting description of the Obama's is penned by a well known journalist of color?

 

BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA EVER!

(Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles ..)

 

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obama's. Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture." 

 The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state. 

 I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America . They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's raw contempt for white America is transpicuous. 

 I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President, and a love of our country and her citizens, from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan's made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. 

 His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs? 

 Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama's have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility. 

 I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America . I view that statement and that Mind set as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.

 Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do that. I have a saying, that "the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide." No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed. 

 And what the two of them have shared has been proven to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother's death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father's military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. 

 He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. 

 His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement - as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare. 

 I don't like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority. 

 Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.

 I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color. 

 As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, "Nero In The White House" - "Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. 

 He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequaled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood.

 Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement - while America 's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.

The 1st thing I thought was "we will be paying for it".

First Lady Michelle Obama won't rule out plastic surgery, Botox

Michelle Obama, who turns 50 later this week, isn't ruling out using plastic surgery or Botox in the future.

"Women should have the freedom to do whatever they need to do to feel good about themselves," the first lady told People magazine in an interview hitting newsstands Friday, her birthday. "Right now, I don't imagine that I would go that route, but I've also learned to never say never."

Her message to women is to be healthy. Mrs. Obama says she has never missed a health checkup, including mammograms and Pap smears. She's also had a colonoscopy.

"I don't obsess about what I eat, but I do make sure that I'm eating vegetables and fruit," added Mrs. Obama. "And as everyone knows, I do exercise." Her "Let's Move" campaign to reduce childhood obesity rates through the combination of exercise and healthier eating enters its fifth year next month.

Her workouts have also evolved from weight-bearing and cardio exercises to include things like yoga that she says will help keep her flexible.

Asked whether she has peaked at 50, Mrs. Obama joked that being first lady is "pretty high up." She said she's always felt that her life is "ever-evolving" and she doesn't have the right to "just sit on my talents or blessings."

"I've got to keep figuring out ways to have an impact, whether as a mother or as a professional or as a mentor to other kids," the first lady said, noting that daughter Malia, now 15, will be in college when she and President Barack Obama leave the White House in January 2017. Daughter Sasha, 12, won't be far behind.

"At that point in life, whoa, the sky is the limit," Mrs. Obama said.

President Obama is planning a big birthday dance party for his wife at the White House on Saturday night. Aides are keeping a tight lid on details to maintain the element of surprise for Mrs. Obama. Guests have been told to come prepared to dance and to eat before they come.

"There's one thing I can tell you for sure ... people will move," Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House adviser who is close to the Obamas, told The Associated Press.

Jarrett wouldn't comment on reports that Beyonce, who also is close to the Obama family, will sing at the first lady's party. Beyonce serenaded the Obamas as they danced at one of the balls for the president's first inauguration in 2009. Last year, she lip-synced to a pre-recorded voice track of the national anthem at Obama's second swearing-in ceremony at the Capitol.

Coincidentally, Beyonce's husband, rapper and entrepreneur Jay Z, is scheduled to bring his Magna Carter World Tour to Washington's Verizon Center on Thursday night, two days before Mrs. Obama's White House birthday blowout. That means Beyonce could be in town anyway.

4063766540?profile=original Did CGI Federal use White House Insider influence to secure failed Obamacare website contract?

Last Thursday, America was treated to an incredible dodge ball performance by Cheryl Campbell, senior vice president of the Canadian firm CGI Federal which handled website development. She became the latest in a line of private and public officials to not accept responsibility for the gigantic hundreds of millions of tax payer dollars to go down the sinkhole due to the Obamacare site failure. Her firm wrote the code for the website and appears largely responsible for its volcanic systemic. Now the president wants to waste more money yet, the question still remains how CGI Federal ever selected for building the website when it has a history of similar meltdown problems.

It appears that the White House, via Michelle Obama and her connection with former Princeton classmate Toni Townes-Whitley, a senior vice president at CGI Federal may have given her back door access to the apparent no-bid contract. The Daily Caller reported that the purported $678 million website contract went to the Canadian firm, perhaps due to Michelle Obama’s influence.

This deal cheated the nation out of hundreds of millions of dollars in the failed construction. President Obama has not taken the blame for the failure, which one has to has to wonder where are the subpoenas for the documentation of CGI’s other federal and state contracts and projects that the firm has ongoing in the United States. Shouldn’t a financial fiasco so vast warrant more than a casual nod by Obama for his signature legislation?

What is equally troubling is that according to the CGI senior vice president who testified before congress last week, the White House was kept abreast of the possibility that when the website switch was turned on, on October 1st, Millions of Americans would be locked out of it. According to her, the White House knew. So the age old question from Watergate days remains: “What did the president know and when did he know it?”

Are you angry enough yet? You should be!

On Friday, according to Fox News, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is blaming congress for the problems of the website malfunction. This is in response mounting bipartisan calls in congress for her resignation over the website debacle. The nation and many Democrat senators are not taking the bait.

In fact there is mounting support among Democrats in the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives to put Obamacare on hold. Democrat senators, Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., Joe Manchin, D-W.Va, Mary Landrieu, D-La., and Kay Hagan, D-N.C., are moving for Obamacare to be delayed in full implementation, suggests Fox News.

I would also suggest those NOT in favor of the Act AKA "Obamacare" go to every single you can think of and report the site as SCAM! I mean every single site that is for signing up, doing a cost analysis or talking about the WONDERFUL things this SCAM will do you in for! We need to bring the truth forward before too many get hurt really bad! I support Health reform but NOT as Socialized Medicine!

There are people from all sides of the cube that realize this is the WORST SCAM this country has seen in a VERY long long time!  We need to FLOOD these sites with protests....We have an opportunity to get our message out yet another way but we need to act FAST..  make a word doc of your verbiage then save to cut and copy so this be easy and fast for all...I suggest we blast this suggestion via your e-mail and facebook contacts too! 

We can participate in all the DC protests without leaving our homes!  ROCK AND ROLL!

"Barbie Obama's" Fairytale

4063574178?profile=original

Then and now, how four years can change the Barack and Michelle Obama rhetoric – it’s like Ken & Barbie Obama had a Mattel makeover right in front of our eyes.  The speech last night by Michelle Obama was polished and unless one knew the truth it would be easy to fall into the same dismal political Obama pit of 2008. 

 

Michelle Obama has moved into the clutches of the Obama Administration and Liberal News Media and is now but a victim of the times. The story told last night by Michelle Obama at the DNC Convention was nothing more than a fairytale Cinderella story that was devoid and empty of truth – a story concocted to prey on the emotions of the poor, women, the African American Community and the Hispanics. 

 

Michelle set the scene describing Obama’s youth describing him as a poor boy without a penny to his name driving an old rusty worn out car and wearing shoes a size too small.  She spins a story about an unknown, knowing full well that none of us have seen his student loans and most of us believe he had a free educational ride here as a foreign student.

 

In fact, none of us know who this person that some call President Obama really is – the little bit we do know isn’t exactly the kind of information that would make us believe he is or was qualified to lead our Country. His past 3 ½ years confirms that suspicion.

 

The fact is last night’s speech by Michelle Obama was just a rerun of Obama’s 2008 speeches. She painted a false image of the man she calls her husband – it’s hard to believe that Democrats actually think most Americans will buy the regurgitated “hope and change.”

 

The changes in 3 ½ years are the most devastatingly changes of our lifetime. Our hard earned money, retirement and our hope was crushed by Obama. He stole our stimulus money for his friends, special interest groups, Unions and corrupt lending institutions. He increased our National Debt over 5 trillion dollars – he squandered our monies on his personal sacred cows.

 

So when Michelle says he’s a caring person fighting for his Country I beg to differ with her.  He is a dictator striving to promote a new world order and destroy the greatest Nation in the World.

 

When Michelle mentions women and how Obama is fighting for them – that’s an outright lie or fabrication. During his term as President he has actively under a guise campaigned against women, all women and not one thing outside of securing a few condoms, promise of sex changes and some free healthcare that we’re all paying for can be attributed to Obama. Women are losing jobs daily, they have been relegated to the ancient history shelf with the promise that “big Daddy Government” will care for them.

 

She briefly mentioned education for our youth – the fact is our college graduates are living in their parents’ garages or basements. No jobs and no hope of jobs!

 

What Michelle didn’t mention which confirms the shallow platform of the Democrats is: (1)  high unemployment, (2) National Deficit over 16 trillion, (3) Businesses big and small closing their doors or moving out of our Country and (4) The fact we’re not better off then we were four years ago. 

 

Democrats have controlled the Government since 2006.  They have refused to even try to balance our budget. They are addicted to spending much more than we take in and their platform is nothing but a bunch of “hope and change” rhetoric without solutions, without substantial realistic plans to restore our weakened Nation.

 

As Ronald Reagan said "Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem."

 

May God Bless America

As Always.

Where is this country going?

This really isn't new news, but if you missed it, here it is:

Back in 2008 before the election, Colin Powell, a Republican, 4 Star General, and former member of the Bush Cabinet, made some comments on the left-wing Chris Matthew's show on MSNBC. Matthews has conservatives on his show frequently (the clip refers to Michelle Bachman being on the show) so it is not surprising that Powell would be there. What is surprising is Powell's comments about Bachman and his later endorsement of Obama. 

What's up with Powell? Is there any explanation as to  why he would say things like this? Here's the video:

Athletic budget cut update #21 - Beavers chopping east! and west?

The latest budget news has Oregon State Director of Athletics Bob DeCarolis suggesting that if their recently announced fund raising efforts are not successful the Beavers may be forced to drop teams.

To be sure, fall's exact enrollment numbers won't be in for a few more weeks, as students can still enroll or unenroll from classes.  Nonetheless, preliminary numbers suggest Oregon schools have used stimulus dollars and tax measures to make way for tens of thousands of new students this fall.

Oregon state agencies, click here for prime award data

 

 

OSU
For Oregon State University in Corvallis, where the brother-in-law of the current U.S. President coaches basketball, record enrollment has translated to longer lines and greater competition for everything from classes to parking places.

OSU officials say they expect an estimated 24,000 students this year – marking another record enrollment year. Student registrations have grown gradually over the school's 142-year history. However, within the past three years the pace has increased dramatically.

Why the jump? According to The Oregonian, OSU joins other Oregon universities trying harder to retain students. This comes after the newest numbers show one in five freshmen usually quit in the first year. The O also reports such universities as OSU are hiring additional support staff: enlisting more advisers, tutors and mentors and expanding programs to help students manage everything from course load to finances.

This comes as OSU spends its American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars, including $252 million in federal research grants and contracts earned in 2009. The school's website reports the $252-million amount is "more than that received by all other Oregon public universities combined."

Some of the funding for expansion also came from state stimulus dollars. These funds were approved for "capital construction" projects as part of Oregon Senate Bill 338. For example, OregonLive.com reported that $500,000 in state stimulus money paid for part of a $3.7 million renovation of OSU's Gill Coliseum, where the Beavers play basketball.

The Gazette-Times reports OSU's anticipated 9.2 percent jump from fall 2009's record of 21,969 students would put OSU on track for the school president's envisioned enrollment of 30,000 to 35,000 students by 2025.

First Lady Hails Free-Contraception Mandate: 'We Made History'

Michelle Obama

(CNSNews.com) – First Lady Michelle Obama boasted at a campaign event in Omaha, Neb. on Tuesday that "we made history" when the president's health care proposal was enacted and the administration issued a regulation mandating that insurance companies provide women with free contraceptives.

"Two years ago, we made history together by finally passing health reform," said Mrs. Obama. "And because we passed this law, insurance companies will now have to cover basic preventive care--things like prenatal care, mammograms, contraception--at no extra cost."

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finalized the "preventive services" regulation in January and it will take effect for most employers on Aug. 1. The regulation mandates that nearly all health insurance plans in the United States must provide women with sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives (including those that can induce abortions) without any fees or co-pay.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and many Catholic leaders in the United States have voiced strong opposition to the mandate because they say it would force Catholics--whose church teaches that sterilization, contraception and abortion are wrong--to act against their consciences and the teachings of their faith. In comments submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops called the regulation an "unprecedented attack" on religious liberty and asked the administration to rescind it in its entirety.

A number of Catholic institutions, including Ave Maria University, Belmont Abbey College, and EWTN, have sued the administration over the regulation arguing that it violates their First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion.

Here is the latest release that I got from Messina...  (ugh)

__________________________________________________

Big news: In 10 days, President Obama is hitting the campaign trail.

On Saturday, May 5th, the President and First Lady Michelle Obama are holding the first two public rallies of the campaign in Columbus, Ohio, and Richmond, Virginia. He'll speak about how far we've come, and lay out the very real stakes in this election: Are we going to continue to move forward, rebuilding an economy that's meant to last, with a growing middle class and more Americans getting a fair shot? Or are we going to go back to the same failed policies that crashed our economy and left too many folks struggling to catch up? That's the choice.

These kinds of events are one of the hallmarks of this organization. Millions of people first came to know and support candidate Barack Obama in 2007 and 2008 when they met him at rallies and town halls in their communities. We're now entering the general election of his final campaign -- this day should be something pretty special.

The President would like two supporters from across the country and their guests to meet him backstage before he goes on at the first rally. Supporters like you are the core of this campaign -- so we're opening this up to anyone willing to sign up.

Right now, by signing up to receive important campaign updates on your phone, you will be automatically entered to join the President backstage.

What we're looking at right now is essentially the start of a general election. We've all but got our opponent. This is what we've been building for since we launched this campaign last April -- and we're ready to go.

I can tell you the President can't wait to get out there.

You really can't lose on this one: As part of our mobile community, you'll be sure to hear about events near you, when the President will be in your area, and other campaign news.

And signing up right now just might land you the chance to meet President Obama backstage before he starts firing folks up.

Want to be there with him? Sign up for text updates -- and be automatically entered for you and a guest to meet him backstage:

Thanks,

Messina

Here is what I got from the Obama camp this morning...  as if they were not behind the Wall Street protests.  They will be out in force raising class warfare this summer, you can be sure!!  This was Barry''s only job experience before the idiots in this  country elected him.  Hopefully we can take our country back in November!

Joan --

I'm writing because Barack needs you out there this summer.

Through the Organizing Fellowship program, you can work in a full-time volunteer position, learn the principles of field organizing, and then carry out important grassroots activities on the ground.

This summer, thousands of these organizing fellows are going to help lead our grassroots organization -- recruiting volunteers and running events to help more people make their voices heard.

It's an amazing experience -- one that could change your life while shaping this country for decades to come.

If you take a position as a fellow, you'll help more people to step up at the local level, where there are so many opportunities to make so much change. You'll register voters, recruit and train volunteers, run phone banks, have conversations with people on their front porches, and build the relationships that will bring your community together to fight for progress.


There will be difficult days, and long ones, too. But being an organizer is one of the best experiences you can have working in politics.

The people who take on this challenge will not only help move this country forward -- they'll also become the next generation of leaders.

The strength of this organization comes from the people involved. We never could have come this far without folks like you who have a passion for organizing and a commitment to finishing what we started together.

If you're ready to play a critical role in our grassroots campaign, apply now -- or forward this note to someone you know who may be interested:


Thank you,

Michelle

Does Chris Wallace Look at Porn?

"Are you a flake?" "Are some of the things you say flaky?" These are actual questions that Chris Wallace of Fox News asked of Michelle Bachmann, a woman with at least twice his IQ and qualifications.  Why Mr. Wallace did this is inexplicable, but he got a big shiner as Mrs. Bachmann and the Fox viewers punched back.  He will probably never recover.

This was an attempt at a clever rhetorical trick by Mr. Wallace which associates a person with a word.  The less cerebral among us, Liberals, children, will turn that word into an image and superimpose it onto the name and persona of the individual that has been thus labeled.  So Chris Wallace (clever trial attorneys, and virtually all of the disingenuous interviewers that prowl the main stream media) attempted to use that psychological ruse to create the impression that Michelle Bachmann is a flake, despite the total absence of evidence that she is anything other than a highly accomplished, educated, intelligent, righteous, devoted mother, wife and American.  He invented it, but when he put her name in a sentence with the word 'flake,' ending with question mark, he created a trick of word association.  The imprint of image to which mobs and Liberals are so susceptible.

So I will do the same for Chris Wallace. "Does Chris Wallace look at porn?" I have no idea. There have been no reports that he looks at porn. It's a stupid question.  But I've associated the name of Chris Wallace with PORN. Chris Wallace, PORN. PORN, Chris Wallace. Have you heard that Chris Wallace looks at porn? Of course not, I haven't. But this if this trick lie, shielded from libel laws by a little curved punctuation mark, is repeated often and broadly it will stick. No matter how innocent Chris Wallace is of viewing porn, if the lie is spread, and the word becomes paired with his name often enough, he will become, in the media consumer psyche, "Chris Wallace, "Pornman."

Social media and passionate Conservatism combined with a fedupness by Americans of a schoolyard  bully approach to news and politics interrupted Mr. Wallace's gotcha moment.  It didn't sneak past like he hoped.  The insult was stinging, and totally undeserved by a dignified an serious presidential contender.  Michelle Bachmann pushed back. We pushed back, and we pushed back hard.  An American activist class has emerged.  They are politically savvy, sophisticated in history, debate, and human nature, and always on high alert for trickery and hypocrisy.

Sorry about your epic fail Mr. Wallace.  Your name will forever now be associated with the word 'flake." Just like Weiner and TWEET, Weiner and WEINER, and Weiner and IGNOMINIOUS RESIGNATION, will always be paired in water-cooler talk forevermore. Chris Wallace, FLAKE? Chris Wallace, PORN? Chris Wallace, UNEMPLOYED? We'll see.

Husband's Erratic Behavior
Confounding Future
  
 
Dear Abby,
 

 
            My husband has a long record of money problems. He runs up huge credit-card bills and at the end of the month, if I dare try to pay them off, he shouts at me, saying I am stealing his money.   He says just pay the minimum and then really starts yelling, saying to let our kids worry about the rest, but already we can hardly keep up with the interest . . .  Also he has been so arrogant and abusive toward our neighbors that most of them no longer speak to us. The few that do are an odd bunch, to
whom he has been giving a lot of expensive gifts, running up our bills even more . .
.
 
Also, he has gotten religious. One week he hangs out with Catholics and the next with people who say the Pope is the Anti-Christ, he attacks the Jews one weeks and has them over to the house the next; and he's spending more and more of his time with Muslims . . .

            Finally, the last straw. He's demanding that before anyone can be in the same room with him, theymust sign a loyalty

oath.
  It's all just so horribly creepy! Can you help us?
Sincerely,
Lost in DC .
 
Dear Lost:
Stop whining, Michelle. You can divorce the jerk any time you want. The rest of us are stuck with him for another 19 months.

Pawlenty Red Flags: Right Online Minnesota

Former Governor of Minnesota, Tim Pawlenty gave a great Tea Party conservative speech at Right Online this afternoon.  I am from Colorado so all I know about Pawlenty I have learned within the last 6 months or so.  I applauded loudly and whooped as he SPOKE all the right words.  He is fiery, he is smart, yada yada.  The problem is that his constituents in Minnesota, the real Conservative constituents, don't trust him.  An unnamed source who had worked on campaigns at different levels in Minnesota described him as a compromiser, a RINO, a politician by nature, one who talks the Tea Party talk but does not walk the Tea Party walk. 

 

I asked the unnamed source about Michelle Bachmann, the US Rep from Minnesota.  This seemingly well versed and credible Minnasotan described Bachmann's rise through the political ranks, first as a business owner, tax litigation attorney, pro-life activist (Phyllis Schafley)and education reform advocate.  Bachmann was asked by many supporters to run for public office, which, initially she did not want to do.  But she ran and beat a RINO in her primary race, and beat an establishment dem to win a seat in the Minnesota State Senatenational race.  She then went on to run for the United States House of Representatives and beat an extreme-left dem. Michelle Bachmann, it is said, is hated by the RINOs and the Dems in Minnesota, which in the mind of most Tea Party members, makes her imminently qualified for high office.  I love a woman who makes enemies of corrupt, dishonest, musty, dusty establishment politicians.  Thank you (name withheld)

The GOP Field: An Educational Debate

I'm not a real big fan of debates but the GOP debates in New Hampshire have been a good showcase of Conservative thought.  We don't have a perfect candidate, and we will never will.  But the combination of Constitutional conservatism, economic savvy, historical context, and fresh Patriotic fervor is like a symposium on the role of government, and what it means to have faith in freedom and the free market.

Pawlenty seems a little stiff.  Newt is still a great intellect and, although he will hang up his campaign coat soon, adds a comprehensive understanding of aspects of American government.  Romney is a little redundant, rehashing many of his recent speeches.  But he appears to be the solid "fix the economy" candidate.  Michelle Bachmann looks strong.  I would like to hear more from her.  Santorum is passionate and unwavering, a fresh face.  Herman Cain is an audacious advocate for capitalism.  He has a certain "elder statesman" quality.  He is the experienced one in the house.  Cain has detailed ideas plans to answer the questions about Obamacare, Medicare insolvency, and jobs creation.  Cain is unequivocal about his opposition to allowing Sharia law to influence American law. 

The audience seems very in tune with the economic issues.  The debt limit is being discussed in-depth.  Every one of the GOP contenders has something to offer.  And as Mitt Romney has asserted several times, "Obama has no plan."  I feel proud as I watch this.  This, as I said, is an imperfect field.  There are a range of ideologies among the GOP candidates.  But the quality of the debate has risen out of pop-culture, sound bites, and mainstream media news flashes.  These candidates are debating with a depth of Constitutional knowledge that a few years ago was not present.  

I give credit to the Tea Party for pulling our candidates back in the direction of our founding roots.  I hope Americans, young and old alike, watch this and other upcoming debates.  The GOP candidates are giving us a good education about limited government and its enumerated roles in the Constitution.

The audience seems very in tune with the economic issues.  The debt limit is being discussed in-depth.  Every one of the GOP contenders has something to offer.  And as Mitt Romney has asserted several times, "Obama has no plan."  I feel proud as I watch this.  This, as I said, is an imperfect field.  There are a range of ideologies among the GOP candidates.  But the quality of the debate has risen out of pop-culture, sound bites, and mainstream media news flashes.  These candidates are debating with a depth of Constitutional knowledge that a few years ago was not present.  

I give credit to the Tea Party for pulling our candidates back in the direction of our founding roots.  I hope Americans, young and old alike, watch this and other upcoming debates.  The GOP candidates are giving us a good education about limited government and its enumerated roles in the Constitution.
