Joe Biden offends one of the parents of a dead American.

President Obama goes to sleep to rest-up for a campaign trip to Las Vegas knowing his consulate is under attack and people are dying.

And the Obama Re-Election campaign steals an idea from Vladimir Putin and equates voting for him to losing your virginity.

I couldn’t make this stuff up in my wildest dreams. Obama and his Administration are proving my worst dreams. Click on this article for the full shocking story.

Ryan the Best VP Candidate Since Kemp.

Paul Ryan

Paul Ryan 

The announcement that Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan will be Mitt Romney‘s running mate is a breath of fresh air for our country. Ryan has served in Congress since being elected by the district West of Milwaukee in 1998. His budgetary brilliance and political courage saw him rise fast. He is now Chairman of the House Budget Committee and almost singlehandedly wrote each of the past two Federal Budget’s passed by the lower chamber of Congress. Even if you are a Democrat you’ve got to be pleased to see a man of real gravitas named for our nation’s second highest office.

If you doubt me just look at recent VP’s and VP nominees.

Joe Biden? Puhleez!

Vice President Dick Cheney and Vice President Joe Biden 

Sarah Palin? Seriously lacking, though not the imbecile Dems would have you believe.

John Edwards? Need I say more?

Joe Lieberman? Not a lot wrong with good ol’ Joe except that he was the Democrats VP nominee and isn’t really part of that political party. He endorsed the Republican Presidential nominee in 2008 and was re-elected Senator from his state of Connecticut as an Independent after losing the Democratic Primary in his last election.

Dick Cheney? Again, not a lot wrong with Cheney other than his complete and total incapability of showing any human warmth, making him the Democrats poster boy for mean old white men occupying the Republican party.

Al Gore? Back in 2000 I didn’t think Gore was that bad. Since losing the 2000 Presidential election in the closest election in U.S. Presidential election history he seems to have come unhinged and revealed that him as a President could very well have been a disaster.

Jack Kemp? Nothing at all wrong with Jack Kemp. A lot of us wish he’d been at the top of the ticket instead of Bob Dole in 1996.

Jack Kemp 

Dan Quayle? All you have to do is look at his incredibly non-existent accomplishments since leaving the Vice Presidency nearly 20 years ago to realize how lacking Quayle is as a man and/or leader.

So out of the past eight VP’s and VP nominees only one, Kemp, is one we can ALL look back on with any sense of pride. And now there is Paul Ryan. And guess what. Paul Ryan was a Jack Kemp protege`. Before becoming a Congressman in January 1999 Ryan served as an aide to the former Buffalo, New York Congressman.

Consequences! Shouldn’t we all Suffer?

When you break the law shouldn’t you go to jail or pay a fine?

When you lazily lay around all day and night week after week, month after month, doing no work shouldn’t you be deprived of any sort of compensation? Pay? Salary? Should you not suffer financially?

If you eat too much food, and food with too many calories shouldn’t you be fat?

If you run a business foolishly; spending more money than your business takes in shouldn’t your business fail?

And if you elect leaders who lie to you, and say they’ll take care of you knowing they really can’t, don’t you deserve what you get?

When France (and the rest of Europe) spoils their children citizens with endless entitlements, and social programs (all while relying on the United States for their military defense) and they run-up a debt that becomes insurmountable they turn to a Conservative like Nicolas Sarkozy to bail them out. But when Sarkozy cuts back on the spending that got France into its financial mess that it’s in, the children…errr…the citizens whine and vote him out of office in favor of a man who promises to spend, spend, spend…Oh…and tax their rich up to 75%. In case the brilliance of Francois Hollande‘s scheme eludes you let me elaborate. He’s going to drive millionaires out of his country, all while establishing a nation of equally poor people supported by a diminishing wealthy class, until there is no more wealthy class and every child …err…citizen is equally miserable. Such is the failed policies of Socialism.

Shouldn’t Europeans got through a period of austerity to correct the over spending they’ve lavished themselves with in recent decades? When overspending for a period, something we all do, don’t you need to hold more tightly on to your money for a while in order to bring yourself back into balance?

Vice President of the United States

Vice President Joe Biden appeared on Meet the Press this weekend. He says Gay and Lesbian committed couples should be entitled to each social and civil right, including marriage. For the record I think they should be afforded every social and civil right to. After all why should we discriminate based on a person’s behavior? (Oh…wait…we already do….never mind). And yet President Obama showing the leadership that he has demonstrated repeatedly in his 3+ years in office has said “His position is evolving”. The fact that his 2008 position was to stand against Gay Marriage is meaningless to where he stands now. The fact that his position is “evolving” is a head fake for Gay Rights advocates that he’s got their backs.

President Obama’s lies and lack of truthfulness and openness is so tired. Democrats can help me understand him better if they can just explain to me when I can trust a word that’s coming out of his mouth. Rather than disingenuously saying “well…everybody does it” as your constant fall-back excuse for your party’s leader; shouldn’t the President suffer the consequence of his failures? Shouldn’t we vote him out of office for his lies alone?

Well, that’s what’s in the news this morning. It’s a recurring theme I hope we can visit again. It seems to me one never learns from one’s mistakes or failures unless there are consequences for having committed the sin or sins to begin with. But America is such a forgiving nation that we are repeatedly picking up and dusting off those who have fallen and sending them on their way to trip on the same curb. That’s fine and good. I’m glad we’re a forgiving and generous people. But isn’t the guy who keeps falling down less likely to do so if he picks himself up and observes the curb he keeps taking for granted? Once in a while we should trust that the guy is OK and he can do it.
