OK who let that asshole in here?

Stacy McCain is headed to the Republican Leadership Conference. No, they RNC has not given him a leadership role, although if they gave him one the GOP would likely do better, and would be a lot more fun. No, McCain is going to cover the event as only he can. Here is a list of those taking part, and one name stuck out to me.

Among the names already announced for the three-day event are Texas. Sen. Ted Cruz, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Utah Sen. Mike Lee, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, Tennesssee Rep. Marsha Blackburn, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Florida Rep. Allen West, businessman Donald Trump and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.

OK, let’s see here Best Damned Governor in America, Rick Perry check! Mike Lee check! Ted Cruz check! Allen West check! Bobby Jindal check! All GREAT Conservatives whom I admire immensely. Then there is a few I would not walk across the street to see or hear. Rick Santorum? A.K.A. the Whiniest Republican. Newt Gingrich? Bah! Michelle Bachman? I wonder if she is going to make up any stories about little girls who Rick Perry forced to take a Gardicil shot like she did in the 2012 GOP debates?

Then there is Donald “LOOK AT ME DAMN YOU” Trump? Seriously who invited THAT asshole? If there ever was a publicity whore it is Trump! He will say anything for some attention, and for some reason, some Republicans keep giving it to this prick. Seriously, if Trump told me my name was Doug, I would check my drivers license. This clown sets off my BS Meter every time I hear his name. This is the guy who has given to the most despicable Democrats like Weiner and Schummer year after year, and now he is Mr. Super Conservative? Yeah, and I have got a bridge in Arizona to sell you too.

Boy, this post might raise some eyebrows but………..

Sometimes Republicans need to be called out when they say incredibly stupid things that do nothing but give credit to the lies Democrats tell about us. You know, lies like “Republicans hate poor people”? I mean a Republican would have to be an idiot to say such a thing. Not only is the claim completely inaccurate, but, such a quote will be used by the Left repeatedly in the next elections in November. It fits their false narrative quite nicely, yet, a Republican has gone ahead and tried to throw us all under the bus, likely to further his own political viability. So, allow me to call out Rick Santorum, Mr. Sweater Vest himself for exposing himself as a man of principles, a typical politician!

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum said Monday he’s not convinced the GOP cares about poor people as much as Democrats do.

“People ask me, ‘Do Republicans care as much about the poor as Democrats do?’” Santorum said at a New York meeting of conservatives. “I’m not sure we do. I’m not sure we do. And the reason I’m not sure we do, is because I don’t hear us talking about them very often.”

The remarks came during the Q-and-A portion of the event, where Santorum was promoting his new book, “Blue Collar Conservatives.” He was asked whether he supports the earned income tax credit, a wage subsidy for low-income Americans, which some conservatives proposed as an alternative to raising the minimum wage.

He said it’s a good idea, and that more should be done to reward work. “We need to talk about the importance of work,” he said. “We need to contrast it with all of the programs, not just Obamacare, but a whole bunch of other programs [that disincentivize work]. … Every single means tested entitlement program works that way. Every one of them.”

The government’s responsible for trapping people in welfare, but conservatives don’t talk about it, he added. “If you really cared, you’d talk about the problems they have.”

So, not enough Republicans talk about how Leftist programs hurt working Americans and the poor? REALLY? That is funny because that is one thing just about every Republican talks about to one degree or another. We ALL, all of us preach the importance of hard work, and getting the government out of the way of small businesses, and of those who might be able to start a business if not for all the regulatory BS. We talk about how welfare, and other programs actually trap people. We talk about how the Left’s programs are DESIGNED to trap people and increase government dependence!

What point Santorum is trying to make, I just cannot gather. Frankly, he sounds like he is trying to woo Liberals to vote for him. Truthfully, I hope Santorum will realize that we already have enough Democrats calling us unfeeling and callous towards the poor, so he can just go ahead and help us out by shutting the heck up. In other words, as a certain comedian might say, Rick, here is your sign!

Bill Quick’s announcement

The Daily Pundit is a great blog, and Bill Quick is an asset to the Right. But, Bill has become disillusioned with the Social Conservatives. I understand his frustration, I have been rubbed the wrong way by many of them myself. His issue with them seems to be my issue with them. Too often they wish to talk of small government, until something offends them on TV, and then they turn into Statist starter kits.

Frankly, I disagree with Bill on one thing. I do not think most Conservatives are wired that way, even Social Conservatives, but, the Rick Santorum’s of the GOP are a problem. Sorry but what people do in their bedrooms is their business, no matter how disgusting you or I might find it. We are a Christian nation, with a secular government, which is how it ought to be. Too often Social Conservatives blur that distinction.

And of course some Libertarians go too far as well. What I long to see is for Libertarians and Conservatives to come together on some core principles. Small government, strong support for Constitutional rule, low taxes, low regulation, and less government in our personal lives. We cannot let an issue like Gay marriage split us apart. I can see both sides of that argument. It is to me a state by state decision, but something must be done to protect states, and churches, and businesses than recognize traditional marriage from the zealots who wish to use this issue to radically change America through lawsuits and thuggish intimidation.

Sadly, the Gay activists are not looking for equality. They are looking to use the issue to attack people of faith. For me it is like this. I do not care if you marry your Gay lover. I do care if you try to force churches and businesses into accepting your lifestyle. To me, liberty is the most important thing, nothing matters more. And yes, that includes our liberty to discriminate if we choose.

Bill says he might quit visiting certain blogs. I really hope that does not include this one.

 

Trump at CPAC-Publicity Whore FAIL!

LOOK AT ME DAMN YOU! SOMEONE LOOK AT ME!

LOOK AT ME DAMN YOU! SOMEONE LOOK AT ME!

Everyone who has read my writings on Trump knows that I detest this walking publicity whore. He has ZERO credibility with me frankly. He would likely run over his own dog to get some attention, and, I guess we have to give him credit because he has the media played. He speaks, and they come running. At CPAC though, Trump fell rather flat as Hot Air’s Erika Johnson tells us

CPAC announced they were inviting Trump last week, ostensibly because his “previous CPAC appearance was hugely popular” and “he’s an American patriot and success story with a massive following among small government conservatives” (small-government conservatives, say what?);

but for all the media attention Trump’s presence received, the people actually attending the conference weren’t all that excited. The ballroom was not at all full and there was some mildly assenting polite applause, at best.

Glad to see that the attendees are brighter than the folks who invited Trump.
