I Love this Ad

I kept seeing this ad by Thomas Peterffy on CNN while watching Sandy Coverage.

I love how it’s just a guy who spent his own money because it’s something he believes in, ok true, he’s got a lot he can spend!  I thought it was funny that it was  on CNN during what had to be HUGE ratings for them & I bet he didn’t plan it that way, just lucked into it.

Boston Massacre Part 2?

Tuesday’s Senate special election in Massachusetts could be a huge turning point in the politics of our country at this time.

If Brown wins the seat, the same seat that has been held by a Kennedy since 1958 (with the exception of a 2 year period when JFK was elected president) that would be a political shake up for the ages.  Massachusetts, not exactly Texas when it comes to a conservative bastion, electing a conservative Republican? How in the world would the Dems spin that? How can you spin that?  A Brown win Tuesday will mean only one thing….the American people, even in Democratic controlled states DO NOT WANT THIS HEALTHCARE PLAN! Not just that, but the American people are tired of the hubris of Nancy, Barack & Harry, the unholy trio who want to completely take over the entire US economy.

I sure hope the people of Massachusetts are as smart as the polls suggest!

To Close or Not Close

Interesting debate today between Obama and Cheney.  I give Cheney a lot of credit, he’s not letting Obama Bush Bash all over the place.  Mitt Romney had this to say:

It is laughable to suggest that Guantanamo is a meaningful aid in terrorist recruiting. Before Guantanamo came the first bombing of the World Trade Center, the bombing at Riyadh, the attacks on Khobar, the bombing of our embassies, the Cole. There will always be rallying cries for recruitment whether it is the existence of Israel or the freedoms enjoyed by Americans. Appeasement has not ever, does not now, and will never satisfy a foe who looks to destroy freedom and rule the world.

It’s pretty interesting, no one with any sense really wants Obama to close Gitmo,  I’m not even sure if Obama, now that he has been briefed on what Gitmo has really accomplished.  WHO KNOWS.  But he’s really all over the place and his press secretary is back tracking, making comments like closing Gitmo in a year was a hasty decision.
