WSJ: To question, “Could Texas become a blue state?” Gov. Rick Perry “emits a hearty guffaw”
“The University of Texas will change its colors to maroon and white before Texas goes purple, much less blue.”
Gov. Perry was in D.C. Friday and Saturday. He met with Republican governors, most of whom – but not Perry – also attended the winter meeting of the National Governors Association, which included a Sunday night dinner at the White House. (Perry returned home Saturday.)
The Wall Street Journal interview with Perry noted that, “Many political pollsters and demographers predict the state could get wobbly sooner than many Republicans think, possibly going blue by as early as 2020.
“Gov. Perry rejects that notion with his own version of “Remember the Alamo.” Why?
“It’s because of freedom,” he says. “People in Texas truly aspire to freedom. They don’t want government coming in and telling them how much of this or how much of that.”
“At heart, he argues, there’s just something about Texas. “Democrats are about government getting bigger and bigger and government providing more and more,” he says. “Texans have never been for that, and Texans never will.”
Not so fast
Not everyone in the Texas GOP shares Perry’s sure confidence.
At Real Clear Politics, Scott Conroy visited Austin and reports that, “While the knee-jerk reaction among many Republicans would be to dismiss the idea that the state could be competitive in 2016 — just four years after Mitt Romney carried it by 16 points over President Obama — Texas GOP Chairman Steve Munisteri is in no mood to sneer.
“In an interview with RCP, Munisteri said that he has long taken seriously the possibility that Texas could become a battleground as early as 2016, particularly if Hillary Clinton becomes the Democratic standard-bearer.
In the wake of the tragic Newtown, Connecticut Shooting leaving 20 innocent Children and 7 adults dead it is natural and understandable that grieving family members are on the search for answers and for somebody to put the blame respectively to put the blame on.
This is understand– and reproducible what is irreproducible even irresponsible is how the progressive left and especially President Obama and the left biased Media are exploiting this tragedy for their own political advantage in order to enforce their policy.
The search for those responsible
While the NRA showed their respect to the victims and family left behind not using this tragedy as platform to promote ideological policy the left radical gun-grabbers did exact the opposite. Like parasites they crawled out under their rocks and everybody seemed to have to say his 5 cents worth of comment on who is responsible.
Some say “The NRA (National Riffles Association)” has blood on their hands. Congressman Jim Himes (D-Conn.) even felt the need to attack Republican Governor Rick Perry calling him a “testosterone laden individual with blood on his hands” for supporting the Second Amendment.
The Connecticut Congressman seems to forget that he too swore an oath to the same constitution. Some say every Law-Abiding citizen in this country that owns a gun is responsible.
And let’s not forget Texans DO HAVE TESTOSTERON unlike those spineless exsanguinous liberal Democrats.
None of them handed a weapon over to Adam Lanza. Not Rick Perry, not I as Gun owner, not the NRA, not even the State of Connecticut.
Adma Lanza was the living proof that there is only a fine line between genius and insanity.
Truth is that the answer, though it is a complex accumulation of personal issues, divorce, health issues as well as mental issues and an irresponsible mother, is a lot simpler then the media would like.
Bottom line is that the only person that is responsible is Adam Lanza’s mother who knew he was mentally unstable and still feed the boy with violent War Games pushing his aggressively and not only encouraged him but gave him access to shoot firearms.
Fact is SHE was the only person responsible for this tragedy but since we can hold her accountable for anymore lets punish 20 Million Law abiding Gun-Owners of America.
During a press conference on December 21st 2012 the NRA Spokesman talked about, among others, the responsibility of Video games that lead to Adama Lanza becoming a violent individual.
And though the media immediately made their case calling this crazy and hammering the speaker for this remarks fact is that he was right.
If you ever tried those games once, I did once only to see what is really behind those games, they are so brutally realistic and during the game you can actually feel how your pulse rises and your become more and more aggressive.
Put this in combination with shooting firearms, mental problems, feeling like an outcast and a mother that encourages you maybe even pushing the blames for her failed marriage on the kid and the father and you have a time bomb right in hand.
But why does the Democratic caucus and Media not want to recognize the Violence of Video games and Movies as part of the responsibility – SELFISHNESS – FOR THE MONEY.
Politics, the Media and Money
President Obama claims that he worries about our children and his coming efforts to tighten Gun Laws serve only this purpose. But why is he not going tough on Violent Video games as well. Most Psychologists agree that those games have a brutal and damaging impact on our children.
Most national and International Media say President Obama is now a lot more free in pushing Gun Laws because he is in his second term and cannot be re-elected.
But that is NOT true at all.
“After the election is before the election” and old saying states and though President Obama cannot be re-elected there is still the next mid-term election and the next presidential election where he needs to keep the way free for the coming candidate and the interest groups and financial supporters in line.
And the same counts for the Left biased media.
Have you noticed that TV-Commercials of Violent video games have not been taken off the air or out of the print media right after the Newtown shooting? Of course not, and ever wonder why?
Most of the Video games are developed in Silicon Valley California just like most movies come from Hollywood same State.
And those are not only the biggest Democrat contributors – no those are also the largest customers of advertisements in the Print and TV Media paying billions of Dollars every year to the Media.
A fool that thinks the Media will slaughter the hand that feeds him by attacking the same in search for responsibilities on Mass-Shootings.
And check the reports almost every Mass-Shooter in the past history has been a fan of violent Video games playing those games over several hours a day.
Politics – Bottom line is this: The entire Obama propaganda on “saving our children from those mean and evil guns in the world” is nothing but political trench warfare and diversion in order to destroy one of the traditionally largest contributor to the conservative party the GOP and weaken the same for a) the next election and b) for the fiscal cliff negotiation.
It is not rocket science to see that. If the GOP is busy standing their ground on Second Amendment rights the chances are they losen the fight on the fiscal cliff negotiations.
In the end what Obama and Biden want is a simple Washington Deal: We don’t go too hard on your gun rights (just a few minor adjustments we sell as bi-partisan effort) and you give us the Obama budget deal. – Or in my words preparation for blackmail.
An indecent sickening, and disgraceful Game – Washington Style game.
Media – And the media’s hype and war against America’s gun owners and the NRA is just the same – a diversion to avoid the American public might take a closer look and final attack on their largest customers the Video game producers and Hollywood elite.
Better attacking and making 20 Million Law Abiding Citizens with guns collectively responsible for the actions of one Person or in the case of Newton 2 people (the mother and her son) then taking a closer look at the own irresponsible behavior.
We must reject the idea that every time a law is broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker.
It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his action. (Ronald Reagan)
Left radical Activists – Of course they don’t want to hear about Video games as well, their own kids are the ones playing them and their, busy “career parents (we are too emancipated to be home staying moms and take care of our kids)” buy those games for their kids to keep them out of the way not having to actually care for them.
May God bless America

Today I watched the first Formula 1 car race in this year’s season. Many ask me why I like this so much. Well, the answer is pretty simple, It is a race, one-driver-against-another, but at the same time it is a team sport.
Every Team, let’s say Red Bull Racing who holds the current world championship, has two drivers in the field who compete against each other and both drivers also fight for the so called Team-Championship.
In every race the drivers collect points and also the team collects points for technical improvements based on placing’s of the drivers. So it is just normal that at a certain point, when it is obvious a certain driver can’t win the world championship anymore (based on the collected points) he takes one for the team, protects the leading racer, and keeps the competitors back no matter if he likes his team partner or not – for the team championship.
What does this have to do with politics you ask? Everything – A Presidential race is not much different. We are at a point in the race where some contenders can’t win and it is time to take one for the team.
We have 4 Racers in the challenge Santorum, Romney, Gingrich, and Paul and 1 Team the GOP, the problem right now is nobody wants to take one for the team.
And while GOP contenders are busy smearing one another, throwing dirt on one another, and fighting senseless trench warfare on one another Obama has an easy game.
For the sitting president this election is like a 90yard rush into the end zone, touchdown included, with no defensive line there to try and block him.
All he has needed to do is sit back and quietly plan his strategy, and thanks to the ridiculous amount of GOP Debates he knows perfectly well what their strategy is.
And not only that:
Obama also places laws prohibiting every citizen from protesting against him without GOP candidates even reacting.
Obama Mocks the GOP contenders on gasoline prices – with no backtalk whatsoever (Watch the YouTube Video here)
Sends his VP Joe Biden into election mode spreading the word that the GOP has no clue about the middle class (of course in front of a crowd where the dinner cost $ 10,000 a plate).
And the list just continues.
Voters and activists
In the 2010 Midterm election we all stood together, tall and united, knowing what was at stake.
But just like the candidates, the Voters are back where they were in 2008; everybody against everybody and no shoulder-to-shoulder standing whatsoever.
When I look at my network and read the comments I actually want to cry.
I can’t vote for Santorum because………..
I can’t vote for Romney because……..
I can’t Vote for Gingrich or Paul because……………..
He is a RINO, he is big Government, no he is not a RINO, no he is not Big Government, bla, bla, bla – it makes me sick.
My favorite line is: I can’t vote for either and before I vote for the second best I would rather not vote at all. Now this one really makes me sick.
EVERY VOTE NOT PLACED IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA
IF YOU DON’T VOTE YOU DON’T HAVE ANY RIGHT TO COMPLAIN
Here is a little lesson in political reality. My favorite candidate would be Lt. Col. Ret. Congressman Allen West of Florida, but he won’t run.
And since politics is not a “musical request program”, and unless anyone of the voters out there has the magic “Jeannie in the Bottle” that can bring the perfect candidate with a blink of her eye we all have to face reality, and pick one that is there.
And that brings me to the candidates
Who is left in the pool of candidates some like, some don’t. Nevertheless it is the best we’ve got right now and the true agenda in “The most important election in America’s history” is to kick Obama out, PERIOD.
Here is my question to the contenders (or some of them): Why do you run in the first place?
a) You run because you are truly interested in saving America
Then it is time to face political reality. Re-evaluate your chances by reality and not mathematical possibility and do the right thing.
Maybe you want to take from the example of Governor Rick Perry (R-TX), who was humble enough to know he is not going to win and took “one for the team”.
b) You run because you are probably at an age where you think this is your last chance to gain the highest Office in the Country if not in the world
Then you better get out of the way. Your knuckle-biting does not serve anybody but Obama. This is not the time for personal conceitedness. We already have a self-absorbed narcissist in the office.
Where do we stand?
Whether you like it or not the fact is, based on delegate count, this has become a two-man-race between Mitt Romney (496) and Rick Santorum (236), with Newt Gingrich (141) and Ron Paul (66) pulling up the rear.
I was pretty much one of the first that brought up Newt Gingrich for President in 2011.
But I also was excited about Rick Perry, Michelle Bachmann, and not to mention that I was still praying for Lt. Col. Ret. Congressman West to reconsider and run. Reality speaks a different language and I have had have to face it too.
No matter where you stand on any candidate, the chances for Gingrich or Paul to still win the primaries are less than slim.
Ron Paul had his fun, and everybody agrees that some of his plans are absolutely the best choice for America. Bring our troops home, stop spending money on Wars we have no business being in, and keep our Money at home. But also some of his ideas are, well let’s say a good comedy. End the war on drugs by legalizing them? Give me a break.
He can’t win, that is also a fact. For a smart man like Congressman Paul it is time to endorse one of the front-runners and start supporting him.
Newt Gingrich had 2 resurrections already, but based on the recent numbers the chance of a third is dismal. He lost as a southerner in the Deep South against “Yankee” Santorum. That should be a message.
Another fact is that every political analyst from USA today to the Tea Party economist agrees that neither Newt Gingrich nor Rick Santorum can win if they both continue to stay in the race, BUT – together they can beat Obama.
Rick Santorum already mentioned that he would consider Newt Gingrich as Vice President. So – where is the problem Mr. Gingrich?
Be a sport, be humble like Perry and take one for the team, take one FOR AMERICA
This is a win-win situation for all of us. Gingrich gets his place in the white House, he can take on sleeping disorder VP Joe Biden, and battle him in debates, coach Rick Santorum to beat Obama in debates, while sharing with Santorum his profound knowledge and experience, and together fight for a renewed America.
That way we can make this what it already is – a two-man race between Santorum and Romney, and then the voters decide once and for all.
Meanwhile Newt Gingrich can start taking on Obama and his policies at every turn in order to prevent Obama from spreading his election message un-challenged.
And finally, (I’m almost begging here) close the frontline against our combined enemy Obama.
Candidates, Voters, Activist
This is a message to both, the candidates and the voters.
Stop smearing, whining, and nagging and acting like a spoiled 5 year old brat – or BOTH OF YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF OBAMA FASCISM WITH ONLY YOURSELF TO BLAME
We can’t always have what we want, but we have one combined goal and that is SAVING AMERICA FROM OBAMA or see AMERICA GO ALL THE WAY DOWN
And I said it before and say it again to the Voters – you might not like the current choice, but the only other choice is 4 more years of Obama. So
FACE THE DAM REALITY AND VOTE
FOR THE MOST AMAZING SHINING CITY ON THE HILL
AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

~~ In Americapeople are not subject to the Government, the Government is subject to the people ~~
(Gov. Rick Perry, on his presidential announcement speech in S.C. August 13, 2011)
The 2nd Presidential Debate in Ames, Iowa for the Republican preliminaries is over. Winners, losers, and the first quitter are determined.
Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann won the Iowa Straw Poll slightly ahead of Ron Paul and then former Governor Tim Pawlenty who has now thrown in the towel, but one man managed to shuffle the entire debate without even being there – Governor Rick Perry (TX – R).
Rick Perry made the smartest move possible by having his staff announce the “high possibility” of him running on Thursday, followed by watching and sitting out the debate, and then Rick Perry making the official announcement of his candidacy for president on Saturday in South Carolina.
With Chris Wallace on stage in Iowa as the igniter, the “advocate diabolic (the devil’s advocate)” the debate actually became interesting. Every good debate needs one like this.
People have different opinions on this debate, but I have to admit that I liked this one a lot better than the first debate in New Hampshire and though many of my friends (or better almost all of them) disagree with me, I liked it better because of Chris Wallace.
But let’s be honest here: What are the preliminaries and what are they good for?
As a fan of Formula 1 car racing I see the preliminaries as the qualifying, the “everybody against everybody selection” for the actual race.
And as a former soldier of the Armed Forces I know for a fact that you can’t train and prepare man/woman for the worst by playing nice.
The first debate in New Hampshire was more like a choir performance where all of the candidates showed their uttermost politeness, all had the same message and basically nothing really new was said.
For me as voter it was hard to determine which candidate would be best equipped to replace Barrack Obama in the White House.
“Minnesota Nice” is beautiful and “Texas Hospitality” is a marvelous thing, but we are preparing for the most brutal and below the
belt face off going into the 2012 election. Obama will be fighting desperately for re-election and believe me he will not play fair or nice.
Jon Stewart, an aggressive Obama supporter and radical left wing talk show host of the “Daily show” for example already started with sexual insults towards the Bachmann’s and since Obama never stepped in condemning this audacity he showed “Silent
The election is on and the Chris Wallace “head on head fight calls” was actually nothing but a warm up for what is yet to come.
Pitting Michelle Bachmann against Tim Pawlenty on their records was an excellent move. Democrats will do the same, and worse. And for the first time the usually very confident and competent Michelle Bachmann showed signs of being “off guard” and insecure for a moment.
Well Congresswoman Bachmann better get used to it, it won’t get any easier.
Pitting Tim Pawlenty against Mitt Romney on “Romney care” is of course nothing new and also happened in New Hampshire, but here Wallace proved that he is a professional “Journalist” trained on counter warfare and challenging the contestants;
Newt Gingrich actually showed what is to be expected from a Presidential Hopeful when Chris attacked him on his records Gingrich fired back accusing him of playing “Mickey Mouse games”. Gingrich put Wallace and the media in their place and showed great fighting spirit.
Mitt Romney did the same when he challenged Wallace about the Massachusetts Constitution.
I was amazed and quite disappointed at Ron Paul when Chris Wallace started the next hot topic: Terrorism and foreign wars.
Ron Paul, cornered by his opponents threw the question in the room “who determines a Terrorist” indicating that there is no
such lawful determination.
For your information Congressman Paul: The term “Terrorist” is determined in the ICRC – International Humanitarian Law (Geneva Convention) from 1949.
This document clearly defines an “Enemy Combatant”, “Civilian” and “Terrorist” and based on that international agreement is the “Code of Conduct” also known as “U.S. Military Rules of Engagement”.
The bold moves of Chris Wallace finally caused Byron York to step forward and attack Jon Huntsman on his position of being in favor of Civil Unions.
All of those things actually made the debate interesting and put some spice in it. Very interesting was the question about Rick Perry entering the race and while all candidates played nice only Ron Paul gave a few fiery comments on the issue. But I am
afraid Congressman Paul could say: Be careful what you wish for. I am sure Perry would have given him the right answer on the terrorist question.
As a voter I expect from my candidate two things:
1) He/She has to represent my beliefs as a fiscal Judeo-Christian conservative
2) He/She has to be able to defend those principals
But here is the thing.
Giving election speeches in front of a crowd is easy. Politicians are trained and used to do that. As a tea party member, and fiscal conservative I can step in front of 10,000 people anytime and give a speech. I can say things to make the audience cheer or say things to get their blood boiling ready for a fight.
It is like preaching to the choir. There are only likeminded people in the crowd who believe the same things and share the same opinions.
But defending the records and the principles in an open discussion with an opponent is something completely different. Anybody who has ever been in a debate knows that.
In a debate you have to expect attacks and counter attacks, you deal with limited speaking time where you have to a) get your
message out and at the same time b) defend your record and position.
And if you think that is easy – try; I am a well trained rhetorician and I’ve been told that I’m strongly opinionated, bullheaded, stubborn and pretty good at combat rhetoric.
You have to be faster, quicker, better informed, and well prepared and never lose or show any weakness.
And here is where Rick Perry comes into play and why he overshadowed the entire debate. If you have watched Rick Perry during the gubernatorial race he has been attacked a lot of times very hard by his opponents.
But Governor Perry is good in that game. Rick Perry is a highly experienced politician with the aura of a statesman.
He always shows Texas coolness, never shows any weakness, has his records straight, is well informed, and understands the principles of “counterattack without direct attack”.
Making a “counterattack without attacking the opponent” is an Art not many master.
You have to be prepared to take an opponents comment and shove it back down his throat without being vicious or aggressive, simple by using logic and well founded information.
And that makes him a tough discussion partner; one that rules the stage.
Rick Perry does not need foul attacks or dirty games. He is a highly experienced rhetorician, he knows what he is doing and the big plus is he is humble.
The beauty of the American Republic and the U.S. Constitution is that we are all entitled to an opinion. Since Governor Perry announced his candidacy thousands of blogs and comments appeared on the internet.
Some in favor, some calling him a RINO and part of the system, some positive, some negative, and some neutral pointing out both sides.
It is not my place to tell you what to think or who to vote for that is for you to decide. The field of conservative contestants is now there and full and you can choose for yourself which candidate is your favorite one.
I already did for myself.
But one issue nobody can deny, and that was also sensed in the debate in Iowa – Governor Perry is a major factor and force in the preliminaries and all of the candidates knew that. In my opinion that is the main reason Chris Wallace had such an easy time bringing some tension into the debate.
I watched the debate twice and I am convinced because of Governor Perry the tension was there, candidates were forced to show corners and edges and Chris Wallace just picked up on it and used it.
One way or the other I am finally looking forward to the third and final debate on September
22, 2011 in Orlando Florida. This will be the debate that actually cleans the field.
This is my 100th Blog on WordPress, and I would like to take the opportunity to give grace.
First, I want to say thank you to my readers and followers, Facebook friends, and fellow patriots such as Ann-Marie
Murrell, Chet & Natalie Nichols, Suzanne Sharer, Heidi Kutney, Michaela Brandner, Antoniette Walker and many, many others without you I would not be here anymore. You keep me on my toes and make me want to be better with every single blog.
Thank you for your patience, your time and your compassion. You have added many comments and sometimes you have even disagreed with me, but I love, honor, and respect each and every comment.
Thank you to my son Jessy. You are the reason I fight for a better future, the light of my eye and star in my heaven.
Thanks to Annette for constantly cross reading and editing, you have done a marvelous job. I love you.
Thanks to my parents who brought me up well, showed me that a man is entitled to his opinion as long as he puts it on a foundation – This made me strong.
And last but not least – thank you my God almighty in heaven and my savior Jesus Christ for providing me with the rhetorical talent to be outspoken.
Thank you to the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces, who gave their ultimate sacrifice in order to provide and defend the blanket of freedom, that was thought of by the Founding Fathers, and established as the United States Constitution.
Your ultimate sacrifice allows me to share my opinion no matter if I am right or wrong.
God Bless ya’ll and
GOD BLESS AMERICA
Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum – or “If you wish for peace prepare for War”
(Roman Military Writer Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus ~390 A.D.)
Thank you so much Emily for inspiring me to this blog.
On the verge of the 2010 Midterm elections a wraith seems to be going around among the conservative Tea Party movement and the GOP – the wraith of “Arrogance and Ignorance”.
And this is happening not only in Texas but all over the country.
Yesterday I read a post of my dear friend Emily, who was agitated over an interview the Talk show host Glen Beck held with the Gubernatorial Candidate for Texas Debra Medina. She is an uprising Candidate from Southwest Texas who emerged from the Tea party movement (Read here: http://is.gd/8dsai). In this interview Glen was just being himself and as usual doing what he does best: Slapping Medina and the Tea party movement in their face – or bottom line being a controversial jerk.
In my reply I said I feel for Debra but she had better get used to it because compared with what the Democrats will be pulling in the fall of 2010 this interview was nothing more than a beginning warm up, she answered me that (quote): She is not worried about the Dems here in Texas for 2 reasons: 1) They have yet to produce a decent candidate and 2) after the mess that they have created in Washington I don’t think Texans will look twice at them. Besides, Texas has and always will be a predominantly Republican state.
Well, you are partially wrong Emily and that mistake is weaving itself like red yarn through the entire Country. First of all Texas has not always been a predominantly Republican State. The truth of the matter is Texas was a Democrat State until the 1980’s (Source: Texas Politics University of Texas: http://is.gd/8dwan), but Texas later was re-conquered by the Republicans, and Rick Perry concreted that power through re-districting in 2003.
The Democrats are not beaten yet – they’re just regrouping
There is a huge danger here with over confident thinking and I have warned about that all along in a previous Blog Post under the title: “Open Letter to the GOP – A wake up call” (Read here: http://wp.me/pF1Ot-2b).
After taking the vast majority away from the Democrats by electing Scott Brown to the Senate, the Republican Party is running around the country feeling like a winner, acting like a peacock, having their heads in the clouds, celebrating Scott Brown’s victory as their own (though this is not the victory of the party but rather the victory of the Tea Party movement) and overlooking the danger that is coming from behind. In one of my next Blogs under the title “Is Obama out of touch with reality” I will prove to you that the Democrats have never been more dangerous than now.
This was not the GOP’s victory – this was the Victory of the Tea Party movement.
The actions the democrats are performing right now are Military tactics 1:1 called reinforcing and regrouping. And the GOP and conservatives just don’t seem to see it.
After Brown’s election Obama and his grassroots Democrats definitely acknowledged the fact that the 2010 Midterm elections will not be an easy task for them. Obama’s Hope and Change policy failed and the trust of the people and the poll numbers are decreasing. The signs are all there and obvious, but why is nobody capable of seeing them?
- Obama immediately changed his course from “Lone-ranger-Ruler” to “Please work with me together” – giving voters the impression he is willing to work bipartisan on all issues. This way he can take the position as a victim of Republican stubbornness during the election and blindfold the voters with his eloquent appearance.
~~ The Perfect Oscar certified Media show ~~
- Right after his State of the Union speech Obama went media-affective one on one with the Republicans accusing them of digging into the partisan ship on healthcare rather than working with him – truth is, it was the Democrats that refused to work Bi-partisan, and except for 2 – yes only two – Republican Senators all stayed quiet.
- Pelosi became the role of the hardliner making several media-affective comments that she is willing to move on with the healthcare no matter what, even against the new course of Obama.
- Harry Reid changed his mind on an hourly basis, depending on what Media he was talking to. One time ready to work bi partisan the next moment playing hardliner – Getting ready to take the stand that suits him best.
- With Pat Kennedy announcing his retirement February 11, 2010 the 14th Democrat is backing out of the current administration. Why would they back out just now when they have a chance to rule the country? Pretty simple – Reinforcement. Obama needs to replace some of the faces of his current administration in order to stay in Power. He needs new and unencumbered faces. Everybody right now would just be associated with the past failures.
All of those things are nothing but diversions. When an army needs to re-group and re-enforce, the standard system is to remove the troops from the battlefield to safety, have a few specialists attacking the enemy, keeping his mind and his force occupied and then reinforce the main troops with manpower, arms, and ammunition.
And this is what the Democrats are doing right now. All their appearances on TV, their contradictory Statements, and them changing their minds are nothing but a diversionary tactic to occupy the opposition, the movement, and the voter’s, period. And in the meanwhile Obama performs and occupies the media with his “Nice-Guy from the neighborhood Obama show” knowing that this worked during his Presidential campaign and it might work again now.
But that is not what bothers me, what really bothers me is what is behind the scenes. The Democrats will not sit down and just wait to see what happens. No – they are charging right now, they are getting dossiers on every candidate, background checks, every word that has ever been spoken, and every move that has ever been made.
Manpower, Arms and Ammunition
The democratic machine is working right now – ready to strike as of April until November. And in my opinion this will be the bloodiest Midterm election in History. The Democrats won’t just sit back waiting to be attacked they will strike first throwing dirt wherever they can.
And I said it before and I say it again – when it comes to playing the media the Democrats are way ahead of us. The Democrats have learned that America is a country that loves two things
1) A good Drama show
2) The underdog – and as soon as Obama can position the Democratic Party as the victims of Republican Grass root stubbornness he WILL take the position of the Underdog in this Midterm election.
Always remember Sun-Tzu’s “The Art of War”:
It is not the Giant on the battlefield that worries me – but the troops hiding behind the Giant
So if Debra Medina thinks Glen Beck was tough on her: Here is some good advice for her from my military time:
Preparation is half the war.
Prepare for the worst and be happy if you don’t need it
Prepare yourself for below-the-belt attacks because should you be victorious over Governor Perry in the primaries; Glenn’s interview was a walk in the park compared to what the Democrats will do to you.
And while Glen hung himself on one comment from YOU and attacked YOU – the Dems will go way beyond that – They will go after you, your children, your friends, and even your dog if you have one.
