    Open (Non-Cain news only)

    Open (Non-Cain news only)

    I really don’t want this to turn into one of those foul-mouthed blogs, but this is pushing me to the limit:

    Asked if the country’s consistently high unemployment rate made him vulnerable in the upcoming 2012 election, Obama insisted “the least of my concerns at the moment is the politics of a year from now.

    Are you kidding me?  This guy has been focused on almost nothing but the 2012 election since the day he took office.  That’s an overstatement.  He’s also been focused on turning us into Greece.

    Newt apparently gave a rip-roaring speech in Iowa tonight, got the only standing ovation.  Will post the video if I find it.

    What else?

    Updates:  Still no video but here’s the assessment of the Iowa GOP Reagan Dinner from Caffeinated Thoughts (an Iowa blog) which live-blogged it:

    Mingling around the crowd talking to people… the consensus is Gingrich impressed a lot of people.  There were a few here tonight who decided they were going to support him.  The second name I heard a lot of was Santorum.  I agree with that assessment, I think Gingrich and Santorum had the most substance to their speeches.  Bachmann’s was ok.  Perry’s was fine, but he just didn’t seem to connect with the crowd as much.  Nobody who isn’t already on board with Ron Paul was impressed with him tonight.

    And, video from The Right Scoop:

    As long is this open, has anybody else noticed this bit about cancer screening? When we had private health insurance, the liberals forced mandates on health insurance. One such mandate might be for mammograms. The thinking was that insurance companies would have to raise premiums for that coverage. Thus the mandate, and EveryBody would pay for breast cancer screening. Even single males, such as myself, who have little likelihood of needing such screening. Such screenings make sense for individuals, but not for large systems trying to curb costs. Now we have, with 0bamaCare, a large system. From a system point of view, such screenings are very expensive. Thus the idea has been put forward that we ‘really don’t need to screen for breast or prostate cancer. all those false positives just require further tests and all that stuff.’ The shoe is on the other foot, and now Patriotic Americans don’t get screened. Amazing how parts of the medical community have thrown the car in reverse. Of course, once in the 0bamaCare ditch, with him sitting behind the wheel with his Slurpee(r), it’s going to be hard to get out of the ditch.

    (He doesn’t seem to be using that one much anymore. I was always confused by that metaphor, since those struggling with the car in the ditch had to deal with both dust and mud, which seems to be a contradiction. Maybe we weren’t supposed to think about things too much. Like where did he get his Slurpee? Had the 0ne not been slurping on his Slurpee, think he might have missed the ditch?)

    That was a good speech. I really liked how he was so gracious to his “competitors” (not “opponents”!).

    Newt does deserve the credit for the balanced budget of the early 90’s which the democrats try to give to Clinton. Clinton submitted five deficit laden budgets before finally accepting Newt’s balanced budget.

    I wonder what reader’s think about Newt’s “personal” problems, having been divorced twice before. It is easy to hear Newt’s love for Callista whenever he refers to her. She is an Iowa girl, having graduated cum laude from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa. She is a dedicated Catholic and was instrumental in his conversion to Catholicism. Their romance began while he was still married to his second wife.

      Nothing says “true love” like cheating on your second wife with a “good Catholic girl.”

      Seriously, how much of a “dedicated Catholic” can you be committing adultery? Do you not understand the Catholic church’s stance on adultery, divorce and remarriage? I do and I’m not a Catholic.

      But you are correct. Newt can give a great speech. The problem is he will disavow that speech a week or a month later and demonstrate he is a big-government statist all too much like George Bush and Mitt Romney.
