GOP Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee recently had a fund raising rally in his home state of Arkansas. Here are the highlights:
I didn’t realize that Mike was such a good dancer!
Unless you’re living under a rock. You’re remotely aware that there was a GOP candidate presidential debate on Fox News. Within that debate, Megyn Kelly peppered Donald Trump with questions concerning his record with women. You may also be aware that Trump was butt hurt over his “mistreatment”, and said some unkind, sexist remarks toward Kelly afterward. While he didn’t say what’s featured in this meme that I came across, I would imagine that someone as misogynistic and crass as Trump would gleefully bellow something along those lines in private.
Actually, I spent the night watching reruns of Doc Martin and NCIS. However, if I know the field of GOP candidates correctly, I would bet last night’s debate looked something like this:
I’m betting that’s Megyn Kelly pulling the cart.
In spite of the hateful, racist, stupid shit that’s spewing out of the Donald’s mouth, he seems to be more popular than ever. I don’t get it. In fact I don’t really fathom as to why anyone who belongs in the ever shrinking middle class or lower would ever support today’s teapublican candidates. All they care about is getting richer than they already are. Their stratagem is tried and true: Divide and conquer. They some how talk the huddled masses into hating each other, in order to keep them from forming a united front. This has been going on here for centuries. It’s a mystery to me why people keep buying into the very bullshit that is keeping them in the plight they are in. It’s no mystery as to why I don’t like to go out into public anymore. People who enjoy being treated like chattel simply scare the hell out of me.
Ronnnie Ray-Gun sells weapons to Iran to support a brutal overthrow of Nicaragua and what happens? He plays the “I can’t remember because I’m a senile old man” card, and is viewed as one of our greatest presidents. President Obama oversees one of the biggest peace accords in the last 40 years, and catches nothing but shade over it. There is something very wrong with this picture folks. It’s nice to see that while Obama is in his “I don’t give a fuck stage,” he’s actually using that attitude to achieve worth while change for the better. He’s probably the first two term president since FDR to behave in this manner.
Think about it: what other president has entered their last two years (The I don’t give a fuck phase) and actually worked hard to do good things? Clinton? Nope, he left still mired scandal. Reagan? Hell no, he left in scandal as well. Nixon? Fuck no. He spent spent the best part of his second term drunk, leaving Kissinger and Al Haig to run the country. That is of course, until he resigned, leaving amidst the mother of all White House scandals. Eisenhower? No, hell no. He left wishing he had nuked half of the planet. So, that brings us to FDR, who I think may have been in his “I don’t give a fuck phase,” from the first day he was sworn in, until the day he died in office. Being president during a depression and world war can do that to a person.
This appears to be the Barack Obama that we had hoped for when he was first elected in 2008. A president who actually goes against the grain, and works to make not only this country better, but the world as well. Sure he has his fair share of warts and monumental fuck ups, like the Wall Street bail out, or the drone wars abroad and domestic, but I like what he’s doing. Keep it up!
By the way, if you want to see the in depth list of what Obama has accomplished since he was elected president, head over to The Fifth Column. It’s a great post breaking down all of his achievements.
Scott Walker of Wisconsin declared his candidacy for President today. I believe that makes the number of candidates for the GOP nomination at about what? 2034 people?
This is beyond ridiculous. Who’s declaring next? Krusty the Clown? Oh wait, that would be Chris Christie wouldn’t it?
“When did it become the law of the land that the Supreme Court has the final say on everything?”
