Political Horse Race

Some Horse Race!

What if the Announcer at the track said ” And they’re off” and the horses charged out of the gate and all lined up shoulder to shoulder down the track, each nose reaching the finish line at the exact same moment? The announcer would say “now you, the audience, will have to select the winner.”

It appears that this is what we have in the current political race which has been running in slow motion for what seems an eternity. All the horses want the “right things” and the public says “Been there, done that, heard that before.” No good horses in the race!

More Gov’t lies

MORE GOVERNMENT LIES! I am so sick of the constant lies that come out of our government.

FDA says food from cloned animals safe
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22667305/

I don’t care what the FDA says. The FDA lies on a consistent basis. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE AM I CONSUMING CLONED FOOD…..AT LEAST NO KNOWINGLY.

Get this — Food’s don’t have to be labelled stating that foods are genetically modified and the FDA has no plans to require it in the future. However, they are considering requiring labels that state it is not genetically modified.

America’s uncontrollable war machine

When someone makes a move
Of which we don't approve,
Who is it that always intervenes?
U.N. and O.A.S.,
They have their place, I guess,
But first send the Marines!*

From George W. Bush's war machine comes word that thousands more Marines will soon head for Afghanistan to fight the war he abandoned nearly five years ago for the ill-conceived invasion of Iraq.

This doesn't mean we're getting out of Iraq. We will probably be debating the Iraq war in the 2012 Presidential campaign, along with the war in Afghanistan, the war in Iraq and God-knows-where-else.

A joke that could have turned deadly

In the entertainment-starved Persian Gulf, telling a U.S. Navy vessel that you're coming after it and the ship will explode in a few minutes is apparently what passes for humor.

It turns out that the voice that passed that spurious warning to three Navy ships as they were being approached by Iranian speedboats is a notorious maritime heckler who has come to be known as the Filipino Monkey after his racist insults to Filipinos.

The stampeding media herd

Two incidents of unintended consequences this week compel us to revisit just how wrong things can go in the herd journalism that has spread faster than mad cow disease along the 2008 presidential campaign trail.

While both occurred during the week of the Michigan Republican presidential primary, neither really had anything to do with that event. One was about yet another mindless stampede of the media herd covering the Democratic presidential candidates campaigning in Nevada and South Carolina. (And we'll get to that one later.)

For Republicans, a big jumbled mess

The Republican race heads south as a complete jumble.

Scorecard:

Michigan — Mitt Romney.

New Hampshire — John McCain.

Iowa — Mike Huckabee.

Now, after Romney won Michigan on Tuesday, the GOP contest is more up in the air than ever just four days before the South Carolina primary and Nevada caucuses. For more than a year, the field has lacked a clear favorite as polls indicate unhappiness with the bevvy of Republican candidates.

It’s Romney in Michigan

Mitt Romney scored his first major primary victory Tuesday, a desperately needed win in his native Michigan that gave his weakened presidential candidacy new life. It set the stage for a wide-open Republican showdown in South Carolina in just four days.

Three GOP candidates now have won in the first four states to vote in the 2008 primary season, roiling a nomination fight that lacks a clear favorite as the race moves south for the first time.

Romney Takes Michigan

With 37% of the precincts in, Romney is the projected winner with 39% of the vote. As of this posting, McCain has 30%, and the Huckster takes third with 15%. No surprise there, with Romney oozing around the state, running on some pie-in-the-sky message of hope. He should be ashamed of himself, promising to bring back jobs that disappeared long ago in the name of free markets. I’m no fan of McCain’s, but at least he had the guts to speak the truth and mention the unmentionable: the jobs are gone gone gone.
