Only a few have changed!
Great post Sheran, I heard it on the New Herman Cain show and had to share. I was unaware at the time that you had already done so before until your friendly reminder :D
I still think #12 from Sheran's blog two years ago is the most profound of them all.
I also liked the graphic which was used then.
Here's number 12 from Sherans blog. I grew up as a Democrat and now I'm liberated.
12. I voted Democrat because my head
is so firmly planted up my ass, it's
unlikely that I'll ever have another
point of view.
I guess that POV is "out the navel?"
But seriously, if the GOP doesn't get its act together in replacing Saxby, I may actually vote for a Nunn.
I don't know tot, since Michell has purposely distanced her campaign from all of Obama democaratic ties and failed Obamacare policies and anti-business policies, but choose Bush 1 coat tails to launch her campaign ad shows she as the basic right idea for Georgia but can not win even if she got every vote Obama got in Georgia in 2012. As I do not vote the idiot box at the top of the ticket I vote for the most qualifed person for the seat they are seeking reguardless of party. I voted for Hillary because she was the most qualifed, I have never voted for ANY Bush because they were not the most qualifed.
Sheran: You need to check out Bush #1's qualifications.
*In 1992, Bill Clinton's primary claims to fame were as attorney general and governor of Arkansas, and as a serial skirt-chaser.
*Bush the Elder had been a highly decorated WWII veteran who was shot down in combat, a U.S. Congressman, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, a U.S. Liaison to China, the Director of the CIA, and Vice President of the United States for 8 years.
Clearly, Bush was more "qualified" to be president than Bill Clinton.
As for Hillary, people are STILL trying to figure out what her qualifications are and what significant accomplishments (if any) she has - other than "standing by her man" during numerous "bimbo eruptions" and the Lewinsky Scandal. Most recently, there was this:
In 2008, there was THIS:
And this is the history.net summary of Mrs. Clinton's lifetime "accomplishments":
"67th United States Secretary of State, United States Senator, First Lady of the United States and First Lady of Arkansas. She is well-known across the globe as an American politician. Hillary Rodham Clinton was the Secretary of State for the US from 2009-2013. She served under President Barack Obama. She went to Wellesley College and was a commencement speaker which is where she first attracted national attention.
Twice, Hillary Clinton has been listed in the list of the100 most influential American lawyers. When she was the First lady of Arkansas while her husband served as the governor she was successful in leading the task force that reformed the education system in Arkansas. During her time as First Lady the Whitewater controversy and the Lewinski scandal were highly publicized in the media. The public's opinion of her increased sizably during the Lewinski scandal and many speculated it was because of the poise with which she carried herself during the time.
Hillary Clinton is regarded as the First Lady that has been most empowered, except Eleanor Roosevelt. She has served two terms as a US Senator and ran for the presidential office. The American general public considers her a liberal. She has worked in favor of universal health care. No other First ladies held a post-graduate degree before Hillary Rodham Clinton. Bill was heard during his campaign to say he was providing, 'two for one price,' in reference to the work that his wife would be doing alongside him. She has been a strong advocate for a revamping of society morally, stating we were suffering from a 'sleeping sickness of the soul.' She and Bill Clinton have one daughter, Chelsea."
Being a "first lady" and doing first lady stuff is nice and all, but it is hardly a "qualification" for the Presidency. Of everything listed above, this sentence is this the most meaningful:
"She is well-known across the globe as an American politician."
Hillary may well make a good president if elected, but she probably won't be elected based upon her "qualifications" or any "accomplishments." I contend that if she is nominated and wins, it will have more to do with the country thinking that "it's time for a woman President" than any real qualifications she may have.
Funky - Here are more words of wisdom from Dr. Ben Carson:
It's easy for the media (and the Obama administration) to portray "the Bundy case" as a bunch of lawless redneck manure-kickers vs. Our Government Which Is Just Looking Out For Us. But Carson examines the issues without hype and with reason and logic. He also exposes the hypocrisy of this administration when it comes to law enforcement.
It's no wonder that there is a growing sentiment that our government is out to "get us" when they handle situations the way they have handled this one.
