Tim Pawlenty has the demeanor and pizazz of a guidance counselor at a prep school. Willard “Mitt” Romney, in his latest incarnation, looks like a groundskeeper at a prep school.
Willard’s latest incarnation is not going to fool anyone. Last time around he wore slick suits and appeared polished as he flip-flopped on issue after issue before losing. Now Willard’s sporting a Scott Brown L.L. Bean look. Tim Pawlenty is likewise trying to be “Tea Pawlenty”. Not many are fooled by his Romneyesque “T-Paw” makeover either.
While Willard Romney looks for his birth certificate and shops around for a truck in Scott Brown’s neighborhood Donald Trump and Sarah Palin are speaking at Tea Party rallies today.
Hundreds of pro-union labor supporters surrounded smaller groups of tea party members waiting for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to appear outside the Wisconsin Capitol.
Palin was scheduled to take the stage at noon for the tea party’s annual tax day rally.
But labor supporters still smarting from the passage of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s polarizing bill eliminating most public employees’ collective bargaining rights have been drowning out Palin’s supporters, shouting, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Scott Walker’s got to go.”
We warned about what was and what will happen in Wisconsin (wrong place/wrong time). We have thus far been proven correct. When the dust clears we will be correct again and Obama Dimocrats will fail miserably in the recall election feint. Don’t be surprised if Republicans gain senate seats post the recall brouhaha.
Today, amid snow flakes and cold Sarah Palin spoke in the Dimocratic stronghold of Madison and instead of letting the event go by undisturbed the Wisconsin unions did their best to attack Palin – and undermine their own cause. Sarah Palin had great advice for the Republican Party:
A lot of Republicans/conservatives don’t want to fight like a girl. They want to fight like losers. Natural Born Losers.
Instead of fighting like a girl, they want to whine. The whine served this month is about Donald Trump.
After yesterday’s poll results, which echoed earlier polls, the whine was “it’s name recognition, Donald Trump is top of the polls because of name recognition.” That whine makes no sense however because Donald Trump’s name was on earlier polls which had him close to bottom of the barrel.
“Much of it, without doubt, is name recognition. But that cannot explain it completely.
As of now, Trump is the only one willing to meet Obama’s smash-mouth attitude with smash-mouth attitude.
Obama can invite Paul Ryan to sit in the front row for Obama’s budget speech, and then spend 45 minutes calling Ryan everything but a murderer, and Obama gets away with it because we have respect for the Office of the President even if we do not respect the President.
Obama got a pass on Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers, and on just about everything else, as his minions trashed the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro, and everyone who criticized Obama as racists.
The lesson of the recent sound of the Trump-et is not that we need Donald Trump, it’s that we need to distinguish more clearly between the Office of the President and the President.
And we need someone who is not afraid to tell it like it is about the most arrogant, demeaning and dismissive President of my adult life.”
You either have it or you don’t. You are either a fighter or you are not. Sarah Palin is a fighter but she is discounted by the very same people who want a fighter. Donald Trump is a fighter but he is discounted by the very same people who want a fighter. The very people who say they want a fighter then want to determine who puts on the glove and what blows they rain. A fighter is born not made to your particular specifications. Don’t say you want a fighter like Trump, like Palin – but not Trump or Palin.
The whine Sommelier of the moment is Mark Levin. Levin does not like the birth certificate issue and despite his high visibility show has never done anything to help the “birthers” – but Levin wants the “birthers” to listen to him and fast-freeze Donald Trump. Levin has a lot of gripes against Trump as do other Republicans/conservatives. Levin does not like that Trump thinks George W. Bush was an utter boob. Levin does not like that Trump wanted Bush out.
Isn’t Donald Trump correct that George W. Bush was a mess for this country? Republicans/conservatives might want to make the argument that George W. Bush did not embolden Iran when he attacked Iraq. But that is a tough argument to make and succeed with. Didn’t George W. Bush take a government budget in surplus and turn it into a massive trillion dollar deficit? The excuse for the budget horror is 9/11 but there was that costly bribe to seniors that failed and tax cuts that were supposed to increase revenues that didn’t.
Make all the excuses for George W. Bush you want Republicans/conservatives but don’t expect your candidates for president to put that noose around their necks. Bottom line is that The Donald was right about George W. Bush and he is right about Barack H. Obama. Obama is the Third Bush Term (just look at our side panel articles and pictures).
If not Sarah Palin, if not Donald Trump which of the Natural Born Losers does the Mark Levin brigade want? Names? Anyone? Anyone who’s actually running? Anyone who is in the ring? Anyone? Anyone? Perhaps Jon Huntsman is more to the liking of the Natural Born Losers in Republican/conservative circles. Remember Huntsman? He said this about Barack Obama:
“I am most grateful for the graciousness and kindness you have shown me and my family – particularly your confidence in my ability to represent you in China. [snip] You are a remarkable leader – and it has been a great honor getting to know you. [snip]
My only regret is that we were unable to find time for a China discussion before next week’s departure for Beijing. I have enormous regard for your experience, sense of history and brilliant analysis of world events. Please save some time for me when I’m next in New York.”
Vote for the ass-kisser brigade. First Huntsman seems not to understand that American ambassadors represent the American people. Second, what “experience”, what “sense of history”, what “brilliant analysis”? Natural Born Losers can vote and praise this Natural Born Loser.
Or they can listen and learn from a fighter that is cluing them in on how to fight. Donald Trump, as we have stated before is not one of our favorite people. But we can sure see he is a fighter who knows how to fight a thug like Obama and his Big Media cohort. Here’s Donald Trump from last night’s Sean Hannity show (hey, didn’t Mark Levin say that Donald is hiding from questions? Then what is The Donald doing on the feared Sean Hannity’s show?):
Who but real estate magnate Donald Trump can speak with such authority on the bribe scandal that has been covered up for years? Yes, we do mean the person of many of our articles – Antoin “Tony” REZKO.
Today Donald Trump spoke to the Tea Party of Florida:
“Billionaire Donald Trump made his first speaking appearance after hinting at a run for the presidency in 2012. Trump addressed a Tea Party rally in Boca Raton, Florida Saturday.
Earlier this week, the star of NBC’s “The Apprentice” had some harsh words for both the 43rd and 44th president. He blamed what he calls George W. Bush’s disastrous term for getting Barack Obama elected.
The billionaire then said President Obama has bungled foreign affairs like the conflict in Libya, and called his health care reform bad for the country.
Trump has grabbed headlines recently after raising questions about President Obama’s birthplace.
Was that Jon Huntsman, or “T-Paw” or Willard? Was that Congressman West, the African-American firebrand of the Tea Party, introducing one of those Natural Born Losers? Um, no. That was West introducing Trump. Was Mark Levin at the rally? Um, no.
The piano players in the Obama whorehouse took notice of Donald Trump’s slight slaps at Eric Cantor and Donna Brazille’s friend – Karl Rove:
“Pushing back against calls from Republicans to abandon his new-found birther quest, Donald Trump snapped back Saturday at party leaders like House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) who accuse him of being less than serious about his presidential ambitions, warning Republicans that abandoning the conspiracy theories surrounding President Obama’s birth certificate will harm the party.
In an exclusive interview with TPM recorded before Trump spoke to what those in attendance called a record crowd at the Palm Beach County Tax Day Tea Party rally, Trump said Republicans like Cantor dismiss the birther issue at their peril.
“I think it’s a very bad thing for Cantor to have done,” Trump said, “because I’ll tell you, people love this issue especially in the Republican Party. And there’s something to what we’re saying.”
Last week, Cantor went farther than most mainline Republicans have in dismissing the Trump quasi-campaign. He told CNN that Trump’s embrace of birtherism is a sure sign Trump is fooling around.
“I don’t think he is really serious when we see a campaign launch on the birther issue,” Cantor said.
Other mainstream Republicans joined the chorus as polls showing Trump leading the Republican presidential field made headlines at the end of the week. On Friday, Karl Rove told Fox News Trump is a “joke candidate” because of his birther-centric media cavalcade.
“He’s off there in the nutty right, and is now an inconsequential candidate,” Rove said.
Today in Boca, Trump seemed to relish the criticism from members of his own party. In his speech to the tea party rally, he excoriated Rove. The tea partiers, no fans of Rove from back in the days of Christine O’Donnell, booed Rove’s name when Trump mentioned it.
“It’s amazing,” Trump said. “He’s so against me, because I am questioning. All I want to see is the guy’s birth certificate.”
“The Republicans have to be very careful of him,” Trump continued. “Because obviously Karl Rove hasn’t been doing very well the last couple of years…Whether you like it or not, George Bush gave us Obama, and I’m not having that.“
Natural Born Losers will defend Rove over Trump. Natural Born Losers will defend Rove over Sarah Palin.
Hey, Natural Born Losers – Fight Like A Girl!
“BERLIN (AP) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday accused Iran of trying to hijack democratic revolutions around the Mideast and warned Arab nations not to permit intolerance against women and religious minorities.
Clinton said Iran was clearly trying to use uprisings around the region to further its own goals and foment broader unrest while at the same time cracking down on its own reform movement.
“I think that that everyone is aware if its efforts to exploit and even hijack what are legitimate protests. But certainly in an era of instant communication we hope that people will not be fooled by their tactics.”
“Clinton also warned that rising intolerance toward women and religious minorities threatens to undermine democratic transitions around the Arab world and spread violent extremism. [snip]
She said the incidents in Egypt were testing the unity of pro-democracy demonstrators whose peaceful protests ousted Egypt’s authoritarian president and could fracture the reform movement.
Clinton said she feared similar backsliding elsewhere in the Mideast and stressed it was critical for Egyptians and other Arabs whose nations are in the throes of change to resist intolerance and demand that their new leaders embrace open and inclusive governments.
“It will be critical,” she said, for citizens and leaders “to work together to resist these dangers and keep their nations on track to become open, inclusive, pluralistic democracies.”
Fight like a girl. Don’t be a Natural Born Loser. Those are the lessons taught by Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump.
