South Carolina Debate: Newt Gingrich Steals the Show

Posted on

The debate isn’t quite over but I’m pretty sure we have a clear winner. Newt Gingrich has definitely stolen the show tonight! From his battle with Juan Williams to the slightly arrogant “look at me I’m smart”, answers to questions about the economy he just seemed to have it all together tonight.

So who struggled the most? I kind of think everyone else did a mediocre job. Of the other four debaters, Ron Paul takes second place but he struggled quite a bit especially in the area of foreign policy. I personally think its sad that he was booed for his suggestion of applying the golden rule.

Rick Perry wanted to bring back the Gong but I’m pretty sure he would have been gonged before Paul.

I’m going to finish up watching the debate before I offer my full analysis.

Tired of Talking About Debt

Posted on

In preparing to update my blog I looked over my past posts. I realized most of them have been about our nations debt. Quite frankly I’m tired of talking about it. I know it’s a timely subject that everyone is talking about but I’m ready to focus on other things. My plan is to start posting about 2012 candidates though I’m sure they will all have plenty to say about our debt, the credit rating downgrade, and plans for the deficit so it seems I probably wont be able to escape the debt discussion anytime soon.

I still have no idea who I’m going to vote for in the primary’s which is weird. I normally already know by now.

I’m still against Michelle Bachman and Herman Cain. I almost certainly wont vote for Santorum or Perry. Gary Johnson I feel so-so about and I really like Ron Paul. I’m not sure where I stand on Mitt Romney.

The point of this post is to announce a new schedule for my blog. I plan to have themed days of the week so that perhaps I can get away from so much talk about the debt!

The following is the schedule I intend to follow

Media Monday (every monday)

  • Mondays will be all about the media. I’ll probably spew my hatred for Fox News a lot.

Tea Party Tuesday (every Tuesday)

  • No matter how you feel about them you can’t deny that they have had an impact on politics. They’ve had enough of an impact, that I think they need their own day.

Whitehouse Wednesday (every Wednesday)

  • Wednesdays will be dedicated to examining the Whitehouse and the people working there.

Thursday

  • Thursdays will be dedicated to the 2012 race (I can’t come up with a catchy name)

Fiscal Friday (every other Friday)

  • Every other Friday we will talk about money which of course means more talk about the debt.

Free Speech Friday (every other Friday)

  • Every other Friday I plan to feature stories about people notably practicing their first amendment rights. If I can’t find a story to feature I’ll take the time to practice that right myself!

 

There may be times when I deviate from the schedule for “breaking news” but I think this schedule will help give this blog direction and focus.

First ever Presidential Debate on Twitter

Posted on

Today I will be participating in a GOP candidate debate on Twitter (as long as my boss ends our staff meeting early). Join us here! It should be really interesting. I’m a little disappointed because a few people like Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Jon Huntsman wont be participating however Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Gary Johnson and Newt Gingrich will all be taking part. I’m a big Gary Johnson fan and I’m looking forward to Bachmann making a fool of herself as usual!

I think that part of the reason the others aren’t participating is due to the fact that it is being hosted by a Tea Party movement.

Should be fun though!

Tune in to the website I linked above and watch it all unfold at 3:00 PM ET TODAY!
