Random Thots While Cleaning The Barn

and you?

So what’s up with the short shelf-life of all the [R] candidates? It seems a repeating pattern: first each is hailed as The One Who Can Save The World, then a “flaw” is found, then shocking, horrifying disappointment sets in and The Search is back on for The One.

I think Conservatives are envious; we want a candidate we can feel about like the Obama-zombies feel about Teh iWon.

Sorry. Doesn’t work that way. Emotionally we’re still human; but the rational bits keep getting in the way.

Why, since these “debates” are so thick on the ground, have there been NO questions about foreign policy?

I mean considering….

A group of American military officers and Afghan officials had just finished a five-hour meeting with their Pakistani hosts in a village schoolhouse settling a border dispute when they were ambushed — by the Pakistanis… a complex, calculated assault by a nominal ally.

… To this day, none of the governments have publicly clarified what happened, hoping to limit damage to relations.

W. T. F.

Yet More:

Can Pakistan be weaned off its addiction to exporting violence? Unusually blunt comments to the Senate last week by Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen have spurred the latest round of soul-searching on this perennial question.

soul-searching” *eye roll*

According to [Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen], the Haqqani network, a Pakistan-based militant group believed by U.S. authorities to be responsible for those high-profile attacks as well as a string of others, “acts as a veritable arm of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency.” This new and surprising frankness from Washington is an implicit warning to Islamabad that patience is running out.

    Doesn’t matter…

    Because at the end of the day, the Republican Establishment, members of the Ruling Class, all, will do their very best to shove Mitt Romney down our throats, then stand there and tell us to vote for the guy that John McCain beat…

    Pessimisim?

    We ain’t voting our way out of this…

    The problem is that Normal People don’t aspire to the Presidency.

    We need, and will probably never get, a Citizen President, one that doesn’t think he’s any better than anyone else.

    Serve the Country and then got the hell home.

    My theory is that “the powers that be” want another four years of chaos. That’s why they are so pushing for the biggest RINO of all, Mitt Romney, a member of the Satanic Mormon Church.

    They know that will bring forth a strong third party candidate, splitting the conservative vote, and forcing four more years of a fraudulent presidency.

    We are, in effect, screwed, blued and tattooed, well before the election even happens.

    The only way to prevent this is for there to be no third party “conservative” candidate.

    Not betting any of my remaining two cents on that.

    I’m not looking for perfection.

    Hell, we could re-elect Jimmy Carter and be ahead on points.

    THE worst president in USA history is up for reelection and Conservatives are as nervous as a cat burying doo doo on a marble floor! Subconsciously, we yearn for Ronald Reagon II, but that cannot happen.

    Another fear, a conscious one, is a 2nd term for OBoBo. He got elected because his (R) opponent required us to hold our noses when voting! We DO NOT want to do that a second time, period, end of story!

    Presently, a year and 2 months before the election, we have candidates, and maybe more to come, that are being presented via a wholly stupid means of debates, consisting of “gotcha questions” that must stop! If the RNC doesn`t take action, I expect the Tea Party “Young Guns” to rebel against the “Establishment (R)s and demand a change! If they don`t, the grassroots Tea Parties will have to march on Washington and force the changes ourselves.

    Personally, I am opposed to RHINO Mitt Romney and Newt. At this juncture I think Tex Perry and Hermain Cain show promise, but Perry is not a good debater and Cain has yet to build a national following. For instance, NONE of the stupid debates have asked any questions or Foreign Policy! I also don`t know WTF is going on with Sarah Palin.

    Lastly, I DO NOT want to have to vote for a president based soley on his choice for VP (…say Mark Rubio…). Been there, done that….

    In summary, an example of what American patriots have to face between now and November, 2012 would be the old movie, HIGH NOON with Gary Cooper!

    I’m scared shitless that this Republican circus will result in a third party conservative candidate, and four more years of the terrorists’ messiah in office.

    I think these “debates” and the gotcha questions are all about just that.
