I wasn’t his fault. Honestly it wasn’t. The economy made him do it. Bush 41 had to raise taxes in 1990, breaking his “Read My Lips” campaign promise. And that evil jerk, Newt, he just HAD to keep his campaign promises! Newt even walked out on H W when it came time to renig.
Remember when W’s father was telling America, (summary of implications) “Sorry folks, I had to break my promise. We just have to get along with our political enemies. You elected me not to raise taxes, but I’m going to anyway..” ….Well, Newt refused to stand with that man. I say, good for Newt! But, H W doesn’t see it that way..
So, the retired president no longer wants trustworthy candidates like Newt. Read My Lips, Vote for Calculaters. George H W Bush chums-up to slick-talking, every changing, always calculating Romney.
I can imagine it now, “Read my lips, no more Obamacare… oh, wait, but the economy made me do it.” · · · →
Gingrich led Republicans to take the House for the first time in 40 years.. AND balance the budget for the first time in 40 years! Is he “egotistical” as some say? Most get-er-done types are misperceived as “egotistical” by those who live on their sofas. You have to say NO to Washington if you want to say YES to the voters. He kept his campaign promises. Call it good, bad, arrogant, humble.. it’s exactly what we need: Republican leadership, campaign promises KEPT, a balanced budget.
But Romney is showing his true colors.. wishy-washy, calculating, smooth-talker, and a bully when you get in his way. Will that win the Moderates Romney idolizes? How could it, if he can’t even get along with his own party?
And, Newt’s true colors are also showing.. His changing opinions demonstrate that he learns, unlike Romney who changes with polling data. We need a politician who can learn. · · · →
“How can you change on something as fundamental as Life—at a time that is highly suspicious?.. I’m just not sure that passes the straight face test.” – Gov Jon Huntsman on Romney’s Abortion stance · · · →
N Korea now led by Kim Jong Un, American troops being planted all over Pacifica, Chinese all angry about it, and election season in US and Taiwan is fast approaching. This is about to get really interesting.
America, now not being in Iraq, has to find SOME place to “further America and her interests”—we just don’t know how to live in time of Peace, with each other or with others, we can at least agree on that much regardless of political affiliation. Just think.. all those troops in Iraq, and the Seventh Fleet has quietly remained at China’s doorstep the whole time. Now they are looking for a Naval Base in Singapore—why do we need another Naval Base, unless the Military knows something we don’t.
And we all know military smack-action when we see it. “Hey, China, we’re going to place 2,500 troops really close to you, in Australia. There’s no problem, however. · · · →
