commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

ScottP on Rand Paul’s certifications…….

Speaking of fabrications, it appears Rand Paul isn’t certified by the state board of opthamologists like he claims he is on his campaign website. When questioned about it his response was “what does this have to do with the election?”.

ScottP…….The GOP…….

Happy Memorial Day everyone. While BBQs and swimming pools are a lot of fun, remember those who gave their lives so that we can enjoy those things in peace and freedom.

Reading Jack’s posts over the weekend I have to say he is right. The so called “liberal media” is NOT holding these free market enterprisers to task when it comes to their criticism of the federal government’s handling of the BP spill.

It needs to be pointed out loudly and strongly that the kind of hands off federal government these folks like Rand Paul, Rush Limbaugh, Jim DeMint, Glenn Beck, etc. all want would be POWERLESS to force a private company to clean up their mess.

I used to have an old man neighbor who thought all doctors were quacks and bragged about ignoring their advice to exercise and watch his diet. Then after a massive heart attack he claimed medical science wasn’t doing enough to save him and others in his predicament.

The Republicans are like that crazy old neighbor, claiming no one should interfere on the rights of BP and others to “drill baby drill” but once there is a massive spill they suddenly blame the government for not doing enough to stop it.

Americans need to ask themselves, is “crazy old man neighbor” really a model of leadership?

ScottP on the Rich…..

Of course, one of my favorite quotes from Harry Truman is “don’t worry about the rich, they’ll take care of themselves–they always do”. Republicans love to claim that ole Harry would be in their ranks today if he were still around but I think that quote there would be more than sufficient for the GOP to hand him his walking papers. I mean can you imagine any elected Republican today saying that?

ScottP…….Midterm Elections and The GOP…….Hispanic Voters in Az and Co….

I do think that during the midterms the GOP is going to do better than they have recently in western states like AZ and CO.

So they will think that their decision to double down on the aging white demographic is working.

But that will be due primarily to angry white voters being the disproportionate % of those who turn out in midterms.

In 2012 they will be hard pressed to win those states and others with similar demographics in a Presidential year.

…………………………………..

From Politicalwire:

“In Colorado and Arizona, Public Policy Polling sees Hispanic voters swinging dramatically towards Democrats in the wake of Arizona’s new immigration law.

“Hispanics in the Mountain West are leaning much more strongly toward the Democrats since the Arizona law was passed. The big question then becomes whether there are white voters who are going to go Republican this fall who wouldn’t have if that bill hadn’t been passed. We don’t see any evidence of that happening yet.”

Ben Smith: “This has always been Democrats’ belief about immigration politics: That among the voters for whom this is a single, motivating issue, whites may get more attention, but Hispanics are more numerous.”
