It’s The Record, Stupid!

What’s different about the 2012 and 2008 primary at this point?  Unlike McCain, the Mainstream Media and the Establishment GOP aren’t the only one telling us to vote for a squishy moderate.  Ann Coulter, John Gibson, Brit Hume, all conservative, are saying the same thing?!?!

Don’t vote for Newt!

This is the same Ann Coulter that claimed if we don’t nominate Christie, Romney will be nominated and he will lose… …is now belittling us if we’re considering Newt.  I guess we’re already laughing Ann.

There’s just one little problem for Ann, the Media, the Establishment GOP, and now Conservative Pundits:

  • Conservative Voters followed the Establishment GOP candidate, McCain, and got royally screwed
  • When Mitt Romney was in power, he capitulated to the left enacting ObamaRomneyCare, State Mandates, top-down Government, and he installed liberal judges
  • When Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, he gave us the Contract With America,Welfare Reform, and a (so-called) Balanced Budget

Why are Conservatives ignoring you?  It’s the Record, Stupid!

The Crux Of This Election

There is only one factor that defines this election.  There is only one thing that matters.

One number:  The Gross National Debt

The Gross National Debt has not decreased since 1968 — a generation.

Every Conservative American must educate themselves (in all races) and pick the Primary Candidate that has voted, will vote, or will veto, immediately, to stop the increase of The Gross National Debt within one year.  Incumbent or challenger, who do you trust to reduce the Gross National Debt?  How have they behaved in the past related to the debt?  Who do you trust?

Anything less, and our Republic is destined to fail.

Candidate Seletor Quiz

In 2008, I had a close family member take an on-line quiz to help her base her vote on the issues.  The quiz said, based on her answers, that she should vote for McCain.  She voted for Obama anyway… …and has been summarily disowned (j/k).

So, I started looking for candidate selector quizzes for the 2012 Presidential Primaries.  I will post them here with a bit of information about the creator as I find them:

SelectSmart

Based on the wording of the questions, I could tell that the the quiz was created by a progressive, and Curt Anderson, the creator of this quiz, is a self-proclaimed liberal.  However, the results did come out as I expected

Here and here are a couple of articles on the author.

OnTheIssues

The editor-in-chief of this site and quiz is Jesse Gordon and the site tells us:

Our mission is to provide non-partisan information for voters in the Presidential election, so that votes can be based on issues rather than on personalities and popularity.  We get our information daily from newspapers, speeches, press releases, and the Internet — it is a labor-intensive process that requires countless volunteer hours.

Clearly, Mr. Gordon is another progressive, but again, the quiz came out as I expected

This is just a starter for this post; I will update it as I run across more quizzes

Run, For-Russ! Run!

For-Russ Gump Carnahan has been sending out the end-of-quarter e-mails over the past few days to bolster his campaign war-chest.  In his e-mail campaign, he tells us he is running for… …well, he doesn’t tell us.  I can only guess he’s running for Congress.

But where?

I went to his web site to find that he’s, I guess, running for Missouri’s 3rd U.S. Congressional District… …in the ‘Way-Back Machine’.  The 3rd District looks quite a bit like a district… …that no longer exists!

Well, before you ‘Join the Carnahan Crew’, you might want to ‘Get The Facts’ about the Congressional Seat for which Carnahan is running.  You certainly wont find out on his web site, and there are no links to a campaign site in his e-mail.

Maybe he just wants more of your money for brother Tom.

Koster Kicks-Off MO Atty General Campaign

Attorney General Chris Koster kicked off his 2012 campaign as the incumbent for the Missouri Attorney General job…

…I mean…

“Attorney General Chris Koster begrudginly filed a federal appeals court document in support of a lawsuit brought by Florida and 25 other states challenging the constitutionality of the federal health care law enacted by President Barack Obama last year.”

h/t mopns.com

The only way this makes sense is that his pre-election polling has determined that he won’t keep his seat unless he joins the suit against ObamaCare.

Ya think?

  • Countless Missourians have called and written begging him to join the suit.
  • The Missouri Legislature passed a resolution asking him to join the suit
  • Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder filed his own suit
  • Missourians overwhelmingly passed the Healthcare Freedom Act in August 2010

…and NOW, Chris Koster has decided to join in?!?!  Is it just me?  Or, is anyone else suspect of his timing here?

Okay, Mr. Koster, if you’ve decided that you DO believe in the U.S. Constitution, how about filling suit against the 4th-amendment-busting-sexual-assault going on daily at Lambert and Kansas City Airports?  Have you not noticed that’s unconstitutional too?

h/t komonews.com

.

Considering some text from the rest of the story, I feel his support is pretty halfhearted:

“He also said mandates for certain businesses to provide insurance to their employees would be allowed under the Constitution’s power for Congress to regulate commerce.

Koster also outlined several alternatives under which the insurance mandate could be upheld — though he described them as challenging interpretations. Those include allowing states to opt in or out of the federal health care law, upholding the penalty under Congress’ power to levy taxes or allowing an exception to the historical understanding of the commerce clause restrictions that is narrowly tailored for health care.”

Is Carnahan Up For The Job?

The Washington Times reports that Missouri is one of 5 states that have not implemented the electronic-delivery requirement under the MOVE Act.  The MOVE Act was enacted in 2009 to ensure that our Military brothers and sisters abroad were not denied their right to vote (as was rampant in 2008)

The Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE Act) requires states to mail absentee ballots at least 45 days before an election and requires states to use electronic delivery mechanisms to expedite the delivery of absentee ballots to military members.

As I read the article, I prayed that Missouri would not be on this list… …knowing, personally, friends and coworkers who have family members in harms way.  But to my disappointment, there was Missouri on the list.

Robin Carnahan, the Secretary of State of Missouri, would be your employee responsible for enacting the measures described under the MOVE Act.  Much will be made of her Senatorial opponent’s voting record in the run-up to the November 2010 election.  So, if we’re going to look at Robin’s record, on this one, we see… …job NOT done.

But, we’re to believe she’s up for the next job she wants.

I know I’ll hear about “legislature this” and “governor that” and “Matt Blunt email thus” and “It’s Bush’s Fault”, but the bottom line is that the job should have got done.

Here’s some more from Big Government on Carnahan’s shenanigans with the voter roles

Iraq: The War Is Lost

Time for some $500/hr political consulting:

If I were Sharon Angle or her campaign manager, I’d spend 2,000 pounds of dollar bills on a commercial that re-re-re-repeats Harry Reid’s “The War is Lost” comment about the Iraq War.  Covering the rest of the screen would be a slideshow of headlines and pictures of how the Troop Surge was a success, how we are about to pull out, and (even though the President won’t say it) WIN.

The kicker (with the obligatory ultra-deep voiced announcer):

Harry Reid gave up on America’s greatness. Do you?

Cut to a picture of Sharon Angle talking with troops!

Vote Sharon Angle!
