Was just watching “Meet the Press” this morning. Gingrich was being interviewed. The host asked him a question. Boom! Out of Gingrich’s mouth spews out this gigantic attack ad against Obama. Another question. Boom! Resume the vocal upchuck, spewing over the airwaves. Of course, avoid really answering questions.
This reminds me of a question Romney was asked early in the campaign. A voter asked Romney what he would do with the illegal immigrants already in the USA. That is those already here. Already here. Romney, the question was, “those people that are already here”! Did he answer it? Nope, just spewed the usual border stuff, blah, blah. What does he really think? Round them up and do a march toward the border (or use one of those Cadillacs), including women, kids, and babies too? Provide some means for them to legally become Americans? Or just punt the issue and use it to spew more venom as to how Obama is destroying civilization as we know it?
And this is what campaigning is all about.
Funny, the only candidate really different then Obama is Ron Paul. All the rest are just pandering to various groups. The best Republican candidate is really … Obama.* LOL!
I can’t believe that in 2012 our politics is like this. It sounds like something that happens in Europe or the Middle East. What, in the year 2021 we will be spending trillions on campaigns and there will be artificial intelligence drones battling it out to convince our nano-drug dependent populace to click the link for one bozo or another?
Now I’m watching on my SlingBox the “Moyers & Company” show. Bill Moyers is interviewing Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson about the issues in their book “Winner-Take-All-Politics”.
Why are people who question and raise issues seen as left-wing liberals? It’s not even a pure political thing. Complain about the default line length in source code: oh oh, this guy is a loose cannon. Could be a herd thing: questioner = young bull after my trim.
*Obama has been following the Republican ideas to the letter. From continuing the Bush wars, to implementing the Republican health care policies and plans. Not to mention how the administration has still been benefiting the 1% rich. Again following the GOP playbook. How could it be otherwise? Democrat politicians are rich too; they suckle on the middle class’s teat.
