The Current Republican Problem

I started paying attention to American Presidential politics 6 months ago, which is 2 months longer than my second-longest relationship, but that’s neither here nor there… >:D

So far, everything’s gone exactly the way I said it would, except for a few things I didn’t know about when I started blogging about this stuff.

The only reason people were pumping Bachmann was because she was a protest vote against Romney. Continue reading “The Current Republican Problem”

What Is Your Jobs Plan? [Part 02]

So it appears that the “Jobs Plan” is merely to remove the competition. Remove the low-level workers from the Minimum Wage jobs, and disallow high-level workers from remaining in the USA and contributing to our economy instead of whatever country they came from.

Voluntary Deportation

The problem is that the USA already *HAS* a society of working peasants. They’re called Illegal Immigrants.

Being that this entire land mass was originally inhabited by so-called “Indians” (because Columbus was *NOT* in India when he got here) and what are now known as Mexicans, which is why Eskimos north of the USA and Mexicans south of the USA don’t look too different from each other, the native inhabitants tend to leak back into this country.

Since they’re broke (poor, destitute), yet have skills in landscaping, carpentry, whatever, company owners know that they can pay them sub-Minimum-Wage rates, right here in America.

What are they gonna do? o_O Tell the cops and get deported? 😀 Continue reading “What Is Your Jobs Plan? [Part 02]”

What Is Your Jobs Plan? [Part 01]

I’m an Independent. I can vote for whomever I want.

Assuming a Brokered Convention, in which case, there would be a Republican running that I might actually vote for… In order for me to vote for that person, it would require that a) they could prove to me that President Obama’s plan is *BAD*, and b) they could convince me that their jobs plan is *BETTER*.

It’s really that simple.

Brokered Conventions, Yet Again…

I’m an Independent. I can vote for whomever I want.

In order for me to vote for…. ok, wait..

I can’t actually see myself voting for any of the current Republican candidates, so let me not even type that. 😀

Let’s assume that what I told y’all about 2 1/2 months ago, back in December 2011 (which the pundits, late as usual, are talking about on every single television show now) happens, which is a “Brokered Convention” => http://billcammack.com/2011/12/11/brokered-conventions/

At this point, they’re also being called “Open Conventions” and “Contested Conventions”, but the song remains the same. If none of the Republicans secure the required 50% of delegates (1,144 out of 2,286) to clinch the nomination, none of them can claim to be the legitimate nominee at the Republican National Convention, which means that any of them, or, more importantly, NONE OF THEM might be nominated, and some totally different dude might be selected to run against Obama, such as Mitch Daniels, Chris Christie, Jed Bush, Paul Ryan, or Haley Barbour.

In my opinion, this so-called “Contested Convention” will be highly likely if Romney loses in his home state of Michigan, which we’ll know after tomorrow, Tuesday, February 28, 2012.

Romney’s main problem is his inauthenticity. His other problem is his religion, even though none of the pundits want to talk about it.. They just keep saying “He’s going to have problems winning in the South, and any state where 40% of the voters classify themselves as Evangelical Christians” and don’t bother to discuss it any more than that. Romney himself doesn’t want to discuss it, as he keeps saying “My Faith” and refuses to utter the word Mormon, so we’ll see how that works out for him.

Anyway.. The point is that so far, Romney has only been able to pull ~30% of the vote in any given situation. This means that if Gingrich drops out (which he won’t, because he’s still trying to get Romney back for dragging his name through the mud with attack ads that are still being watched on YouTube every day), that leaves the other ~70% for Santorum and Paul, and with Paul only pulling around 20%, that leaves a consistent 50% for Santorum to potentially snarf, which will be important once the contests change over from proportionally assigning delegates to winner-takes-all, after April 1, 2012:

conservapedia.com/Presidential_Election_2012

It is virtually impossible for a candidate to win a majority of delegates before June 2012.

About 1,144 delegates[2] are needed to win the nomination. Primaries held before April 1, 2012, will award delegates based on the proportionality of the votes (except Florida claimed to award winner-take-all, at half the delegate count, for its primary on Jan. 31). Beginning on April 1, the traditional winner-take-all system may be used by states, but the second biggest state, Texas (155 delegates), will be proportional, and the biggest state, California (172 delegates), will be winner-take-all by each of its 53 congressional districts.[3] Only seven primaries totalling a small number of delegates are winner-take-all; New York will only be winner take all if one candidate wins more than 50% of the vote.[4]

Today is February 27, 2012.. If this source is correct, this tomfoolery will continue until June, which is FOUR. MONTHS. FROM. NOW! 😀 haha By that time, all of their names will be mud before the Democrats even begin to tell their side of the story.

So I got sidetracked. 😀 Let me start again…

WHAT. IS. YOUR. #*$&#^#$. JOBS PLAN???

It’s really that simple.

As you can tell if you’ve been following my blog, I’ve been writing about this Republican nomination process since September 08, 2011, which is more than 5 months, or approximately 150 days, and I have no idea whatsoever how anything that the current Republican candidates are saying translates into Americans receiving job opportunities, either in the near or the foreseeable future.

Republican Race To The Bottom

This 2012 Republican nomination process has gone from amusing to funny to stupid to embarrassing to pathetic.

When I first started watching this fiasco unfold, I figured the end result would be exactly what Ann Coulter said:

If we replace Chris Christie’s name in her statement with “a viable Republican candidate”, we arrive at my statement at the time.. If the Republicans didn’t get a viable candidate to run, they were going to nominate Romney and they were going to lose, barely, to President Obama. Continue reading “Republican Race To The Bottom”

Florida Republican Primary… Predictions?

Long-time reader, and good friend of mine, “Fishingrod” asked me for my predictions for the Florida Republican Primary that’s coming up tomorrow (Tuesday).

In fact, I hadn’t even thought to write about it, because it’s hardly a “prediction”, as the situation has stabilized at this point, but let me talk about the WHY rather than the WHAT.

The order tomorrow is going to be Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Paul.

South Carolina 2012 Republican Primary Predictions

Here’s my prediction for the 2012 South Carolina Republican primary:

  1. Gingrich
  2. Romney
  3. Paul
  4. Santorum
  5. Cain

The reason I have to include Herman Cain is that Stephen Colbert is running under his name:

President Obama Reelection Roadmap

I’m not seeing it anymore. I feel like the 2012 Republican nomination process has provided the blueprint / roadmap for the reelection of our current President, Barack Obama.

ok.. I’ve seen enough Republican tomfoolery to drop my overall prediction for how the 2012 Presidential election is going to go. >:D

As far as my predictions for New Hampshire, I was right that Romney was going to win (everybody knew that). I had hoped that Huntsman would edge out Paul, but he didn’t. I had thought that Santorum would be ahead of Gingrich, but he wasn’t. Perry was at the bottom, where he should have been, since he didn’t even campaign in New Hampshire, and Bachmann got 343 votes, even though she already dropped out of the race.

Here’s what I think is going to happen, going forward, which should result in the reelection of President Obama: Continue reading “President Obama Reelection Roadmap”

2012 New Hampshire Republican Primary Predictions

Today, the Republicans in New Hampshire are going to make their decision about which candidate they’d like to see attempt to defeat President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election.

Here’s how I think it will turn out:

  4. Santorum
  5. Gingrich
  6. Edit: Buddy Roemer
  7. Perry
  8. Cain
  9. Bachmann

I know Cain and Bachmann are kaput already. I’m pretty sure they both qualified for this primary before they exited the race, so they’ll probably have a few votes each. Cain had ~58 votes in Iowa, and he wasn’t even there. Continue reading “2012 New Hampshire Republican Primary Predictions”

Perry: 12,604 votes (10%)

What Had Happened Was…

I had predicted Paul, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Perry, Bachmann, Huntsman, Cain, so the top 4 got jumbled and the bottom four were correct.

Cain was going to be last, because he’s out of the race now, but he had qualified for Iowa before he dropped out. Continue reading “2012 Iowa Caucus Results”

Brokered Conventions

I told you from the beginning that this cycle’s selection of Republican candidates is an absolute clown show, to put it kindly.

I also asked two main questions. The first one was “Where are the broke (poor) Republicans?”. The second was “How come none of the better Republicans (Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, etc) want to run, if they think it’s going to be so easy to defeat President Obama in 2012?”.

I was previously done talking about this tomfoolery, but the last few days, the pundits have been talking about something they hadn’t mentioned this entire time…
