Oh boy, Mitt or Newt, just shoot me now.
The most important election in our lifetime, at least that is what everyone is saying, is turning into the most dreaded, ambivalent, narcoleptic election in our history.
As it stands now, barring some miracle where the party described as too dumb to live comes to it’s senses and drafts someone capable of turning the bus around, we get a choice between a shit sandwich and a poop sandwich.
Romney, who is more McCain then John McCain ( and who is dumb enough to think this is a compliment) has finally decided that this is a street fight and not a coronation. And Newt, who has:
1) Wiped his ass with the Constitution at every turn, giving (or aiding) the federal government authority (education, law enforcement, foreign aid) no where authorized by the Constitution, and, who while in office said “The American challenge in leading the world is compounded by our Constitution,” he said. “Under our [constitutional system] – either we’re going to have to rethink our Constitution, or we’re going to have to rethink our process of decision-making.”
2) Who after leading high five’s all around with his Contract With America, according to CATO :
“the combined budgets of the 95 major programs that the Contract With America promised to eliminate have increased by 13%.” Crane also pointed out, “Over the past three years the Republican-controlled Congress has approved discretionary spending that exceeded Bill Clinton’s requests by more than $30 billion.”
3) Who was the only Speaker in history who got sanctioned (Yeah, considering that Pelosi was not imprisoned makes this charge hollow, I admit, but the simple fact that he was forced to pay a 300K fine and lost the respect and support of fellow GOP’ers indicates some wrong doing on his part).
4) And probably the most damaging, he has proved himself the ultimate Washington insider, prostituting his services to the highest bidder (Fannie/Freddie, and the ethanol lobby),and paling around with enemy for personal (monetary) gain (Gore, Pelosi, Sharpton)
Here his George Will’s take on our sour predicament, he thinks Newt would have made a marvelous Marxist.
And here is Mitt’s new ad, deciding it is time to start swinging:
Personally I think we should make Daniel Hannan an American citizen immediately and draft him.
