Todd Aching

A person can have any belief or opinion they want, it’s a free country (for now anyway).  Todd Akin doesn’t agree with abortion, fine, a lot of people don’t.  But when a public official says something as ignorant as he did about how a womans body can defend against becoming pregnant during a “legitimate rape”, was completely idiotic and ill-informed.  I’m not going to get into the technical aspects of what he said, but about him saying those words at all.

Akin has been in public office for 24 years, 12 in the Missouri House and 12 in the U.S. House, he has been in many campaigns and is not an amateur at interviews.  When people in his position “misspeak” it’s one of two things, they are either an idiot, or they are voicing their true opinion/belief.  To me, Akin was expressing both.  His statement on abortion is what he believes, the fact that he said it two weeks after winning the republican primary for a run at the U.S. Senate currently held by Claire McCaskill, makes him a complete idiot.  Now I’ve heard democrats took up republican ballots and voted for Akin because they figured he would be the easiest for Claire to beat…and it turns out they might be correct, but that’s another story.

Republicans in force came out against Akin, asked him to withdraw from the election, it wasn’t a few people, it was nearly everyone.  What does Akin do, he sends out an apology and doubles down by staying in the race.  He actually tried to blame the liberal media for the outrage, which means he is blind, because it was conservatives who were pissed.  A week after his comments in that ill-fated interview, he is still being talked about, and now the liberal media are actually the ones keeping it alive, along with Obama surrogates, by trying to tie Paul Ryan to Akins beliefs.  By staying in the race the guy proved to everyone he is self-serving and thinks his ambition to get to the senate is more important to what Missourians and the country think.  He played right into the hands of the lefties who try to claim conservatives have a “war against women”.  There is a good chance he just handed the election to the person holding the most vulnerable seat in the Senate, Claire, and if she wins, he will deservedly get the blame.

I did not vote for Akin in the primary, the fact that Mike Huckabee was a huge supporter of his, and endorsed him, was enough for me not to vote for him…I am a zero fan of Huckabee.   But since he was the nominee, I was going to vote for him to help get rid of McCaskill, now I will not vote for him under any circumstance.  I have held my nose and voted for people because “this election is so important”, but I will not do that anymore.  I will not sell my soul down the river again.  I sure as Hell won’t vote for Claire, I’ll write someone in, probably John Brunner (who I voted for in the primary), or I’ll check out the libertarian candidate.

Yeah, Todd Akin is sorry excuse for a representative and candidate.  I’m glad I don’t live in his district.

Honkyazation

I have come to the conclusion, well one that I concluded a long time ago, the main street media can’t be trusted. They go put of their way to paint conservatives in whatever bad light they can.

The most recent was this knucklehead from MSNBC, Toure’, who actually said Mott Romney was demonizing by “niggerazation” of Obama, simply because Romney said Obama’s campaign was angry. S.E. Cupp want going to let that crap pass, but the host kept trying to speak for Toure’ in defense. This guy is given a pass, Joe Biden is given a pass when he says “they are going to put y’all back in chains” to a crowd that was half black. BUT NO, Romney says Obama is angry and he called out for using racial coding.

Now when it comes to polling, and news surveys, I don’t trust any of them. They will do anything they can to make it look like BO is doing a good job. Funny part is, most of the commie loving left wingers probably think he is doing a good job. Liberals hate Fox News because they actually present both sides, and the interviewers or hosts (of news shows) don’t try to twist things in the favor of right wingers.

Look at the tax form nonsense, I could care less if he, or any presidential candidate shows tax returns…it is not a requirement. But the media keeps hammering away at it, because it deflects from the horrible job BO has done, and that he has nothing to run on but hate and anger…oops, that must mean I am attempting niggerazation of Obama. The part that really cracks me up, is the moron is half white! Maybe the right should try the honkyazation of Obama.

So, to say again, I don’t trust any of the media, or anything that comes out of their mouths. They live in a bubble of delusions.

Give Me Some R&R

I think Mitt Romney made a very wise choice for his running mate. In an online survey a month ago, it asked who you thought he should choose…I answered Paul Ryan.

The other options are excellent, and they all have their strong suits, but here is why it couldn’t be any of them.

Rob Portman – From Ohio, clearly would have pandering to a swing state.

Bob McDonnell – From Virginia, home of the first president. No need to have that come up.

Marco Rubio – From Florida, clearly would have pandering to another swing state, and Latinos.

Condoleezza Rice – Clearly pandering to women and blacks.

David Petraeus – Great general, but he took a job working for Obama.

Chris Christie – I think he is too much of a showboat.

Other primary candidates – pandering to another’s fan base.

So, the choice he made was the person I would have picked, Paul Ryan. PR has been in the House for 14 years, he knows how to represent people, he knows the economy, and he is a middle guy who can appeal to the older republicans, and the new generation of conservatives. Mitt Romney was able to keep this very secret, he used his brain in the vetting process, and he didn’t cave to the popular stars, or who the masses thought it should be. No, by picking Ryan, Romney doubled down on the economy, because in this case “It’s the economy, stupid (Obama)”, is a line that really tells it all.

This first big decision for Romney was a very well thought out good one, and to me it is a sign for future decisions should he become our next president…and boy do I hope he does.

Best of the Best

Once upon a time the thought of our professional athletes competing in the amateur Olympics didn’t make a lot of sense to me. Yeah, I know it was done so our teams would stand a chance against the old Soviet block countries, who’s athletes we 100% state sponsored. For all practical purposes the rest of the world was competing against professional Soviet block athletes.

Then, the other day when Serena Williams was playing for the gold, my first thought was no true amateur would stand a chance against her. Suddenly (maybe late to the game) it came to me…at Olympic level every athlete, from every country is a professional athlete. The only reason we don’t think of gymnasts, swimmers, or a variety of others as pros, is because they don’t earn a living off their sport. Now, if there was a swimming, biking, or a gymnast season, where teams played other cities or states competitively, and we all sat in front of the TV having a beer and cheering on on, and they earned millions, we would think of them as pros. Bottom line, most people only care about most of the Olympic sports once every four years (separating summer and winter). We won’t pack a stadium or an arena to watch water polo, or curling, so there is no money to be earned. But make no mistake, they are all the absolute best at their sports in the world.

So, I have changed my mind, bring on the pros. Besides, what person from Lithuania wouldn’t love the opportunity to play basketball against Lebron James…even knowing they will be severely beaten. This make me wonder why basketball is even in the summer games, I mean their U.S. season is played indoors…during the winter! Must be because they wear shorts and tank tops.

All of this being said, I think I have watched maybe an hour of Olympics this time around. Regardless…GO USA!
