Shame On Weiner June 10, 2011

Liberals have all but eliminated shame from our culture. I posted a while back on this, postulating it all started with Bill Clinton. What was, up until then, the most respected job in the land was reduced to a position any good liar could achieve. Clinton’s impeachment and subsequent ceaseless denials of “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinski” set the stage for the situation we find ourselves in today with Anthony Weiner.

Polls are showing a slight majority of freakin’ nutjobs actually sympathetic to Weiner and don’t feel he should resign. What?  Have we lost our minds? Do these scum bag constituents receive so much pork from Weiner that they are willing to keep the creep?

Short of murder, what does it take anymore to lose the right to serve publicly?  Imagine if Weiner was a high-ranking executive in a public company, frequently in the media representing his organization. This scandal occurs. Would Weiner be able to say to his bosses, “I’m not going to resign and if you try to fire me I’ll fight it.”

This is what is wrong in American politics and the liberal media today. The Achilles heel for the Liberals is shame. If they could eliminate it they would no longer have a major impediment to remaining in power. And guess what…it seems, thank to Bill Clinton, they have done just that.

Paul Ryan For President? June 3, 2011

I think Paul Ryan would make a splendid President. I know he’s said he isn’t running but I think the pressure from the true conservative side of the party will push hard for him to reconsider. A few things will have to happen. #1. He can’t truly have already ruled it out. (he’s too smart for that, if the tea leaves show he’d have a real shot at beating Obama, he’d run) #2. Romney steps in it early. (not likely but anything could happen) #3. Polling shows him not only winning the nomination among Tea Partier’s but squishy conservatives too. #4. Polling shows him beating Obama and a clear winner with Independents.

Paul Ryan

Here’s why I like him. He’s young, 41, very articulate and passionate about being a conservative without sounding like an ideologue. He’s building strong support among fellow Republicans for his economic policy (he gets free face time each time they debate it and that will only increase over the summer). He’s oddly good looking—tall and thin is always good. Married with three children, he exudes a solid family character. Of course there’s always the possibility he’s got a dark, nasty secret that could be revealed during an October surprise by the desperate left but I doubt it.

His young-gun persona would be disarming for Obama. In a head to head debate I think Ryan would come out looking more intelligent and experienced despite being 8 years younger. This might also attract some of the younger vote who voted with their eyes in 2008. McCain was just too old and gray.

Of course there is always the possibility of a VP nod. He might be more inclined to accept that now while looking ahead. If Romney wins the nomination, a Ryan VP might just work. That pulls in the Tea Party, the Midwest, the younger vote…hmmm. Romney/Ryan 2012…It has a nice ring to it.
