Comments on: In search of ‘Mr. Republican’ http://blogs.reuters.com/reihan-salam/2014/03/10/in-search-of-mr-republican/ Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:10:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: 2Borknot2B http://blogs.reuters.com/reihan-salam/2014/03/10/in-search-of-mr-republican/#comment-1176 Thu, 13 Mar 2014 04:05:52 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/reihan-salam/?p=661#comment-1176 Republicans believe that the uterus in a mans issue. So, some questions are in order.

Should every unfertilized egg on the planet be fertilized?

Is every woman who is not pregnant going against the will of God?

Should we not seek every opportunity to have sex to fertilize the eggs?

The eggs are sacred, just not the women, right?!

Women are born with all their “eggs” and have the potential to get “knocked Up” every month, so, if a woman is beyond the ability to reproduce, then should they just be thrown out or given a prescription for oxycontin like tens of thousands of them are now? L.

The fight to defund Obamacare was of course destined for failure (with a democratic Senate and a democrat in the White House) and so all efforts to defund it (no matter how meritorious) wasted the country’s money and attention.

Interesting that none of the “leaders” mentioned have any experience in positions of leadership. Governorships are the best platform to hone one’s skills as a leader, establishing a track-record of owning and resolving issues. We need to get out of the mode of promoting Beltway aristocrats (Obama, Clinton, McCain…) The track record shows that Senators are not anything more than average leaders, long on ideas, short on execution. We need people with real experience, not a bunch of loud-mouths who are one of 100 votes. (And Hilary’s shortcomings in a leadership position as SOS are being quantified almost on a daily basis since her departure.)

Whether you like Chrisie as a person, he still has gotten things done in a state legislature dominated by Dems. Look to Walker (WI), Kasich (OH), Haley (SC), and Martinez, (NM) and Mitch Daniels (X-IN), Romney (x-MA) and Bush (x-FL) and the plate is quite full with individuals that have demonstrated they can resolves issues within their states.

We already have the experience of electing a POTUS with zero experience in a leadership position, and we cannot endure more of the same.

The Democrats’ message is, “You can get something for nothing”. That’s a hard message to beat. People believe it because they want to believe it. The Republicans’ message is “No you can’t”. That’s not going to make them very popular.

I couldn’t stop laughing at that one. This one doesn’t really say much though. Presidential candidates are not policy/direction makers. No kidding. I think that’s pretty well known.

I’ve read a slim few, as in maybe two, articles where he even attempts objective analysis. He’s nothing but a hack: bought and paid for.

I won’t even read this drivel. It’s aimed at his only audience. Hey, guy’s gotta make a living. But with “pundits” like this, who needs Fox?

What a waste….
