9 Little Indians

....................

In the interest of bringing good comedy to our TV screens I call for 3 debates a week until the GOP runs out of Indians.

Michele Bachmann spends her time misquoting basic American history, seemingly re-writing the U.S. Constitution, denying sound science, and bashing gay people. She revealed her true priorities when she claimed that same-sex marriage is ?probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and nation in the last, at least, thirty years.? Struggling to grab air time during last Thursday?s debate, when prompted with simple questions, she came off as more extreme than ever ? declaring that Americans should not pay any taxes. In an interview after an earlier debate, Bachmann tried to promote the outrageous claim that the HPV vaccine causes retardation in young women.

Mitt Romney has proposed drastic cuts in spending to critical public service programs and asserts that President Obama takes his political inspiration from the ?Socialist Democrats in Europe.? Ever-willing to cater to the corporate elite, he is waging a message campaign against workers? fundamental right to organize. And he is still perhaps the biggest panderer in politics he once said, "I saw my father march with Martin Luther King," only to have his campaign later admit that they didn't march on the same day, or even in the same city!

Texas Governor Rick Perry said that Social Security exists ?at the expense of respect for the Constitution and limited government,? and said that global warming is essentially a hoax being staged by climate scientists to make money! And right now, commissioners appointed by Perry in Texas are set to give a tax refund of more than $135 million to major oil refineries that will be paid for primarily from cuts to public education. The oil industry has been a major campaign contributor to Perry no wonder he has a reputation for corporate cronyism.

Yep, I agree would make for good comedy viewing. I can't believe it I actually agree with blucher on a political thread.

Probably as funny as watching the O's approval ratings tank.

This should be a relaxing fun time for us old dogs. The dang election is over a year away. Time to watch the Cowboy cheerleaders as you suggested. I think it's too early to invest emotions in Tony's arm just yet so I suggest halftime debates between Perry & Dubya to see which can invent new words or mangle old ones best.

Worse comes to worst and we swap cheerleaders..........

Herman Cain leaving the campaign trail?

.....................
Herman Cain leaving the campaign trail: Why now?
Herman Cain is surging in popularity in a number of polls. So why is Herman Cain putting his campaign on hold for the next month?

Herman Cain leaving the campaign trail: Why now? - CSMonitor.com

Quote:
WASHINGTON
The Hermantor Experience is, by almost any measure, the hottest thing going in the GOP presidential primary (not named Chris Christie).
As Decoder wrote last week, former Godfather?s Pizza CEO Herman Cain is romping in straw polls (Florida, and, this weekend, the National Federation of Republican Women), killing it on social media, climbing in at least one national poll, and promoting a new book. Columnists at the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Examiner have both given him love.

It?s momentum and recognition that the Rick Santorums and Jon Huntsmans of the GOP world must be lusting after.

But Cain seems destined to squander it. And here?s why.

As NBC?s thoughtful First Read points out this morning, Cain's promoting a book - and appears to be taking himself off the campaign trail for almost a month.

Cain won?t be back in the key state of Iowa until November. With all of the jiggering of the Republican primary calendar, that means he?ll have six weeks (at best) to pound the trail before the Iowa caucuses in early January.

Perhaps equally telling, Cain's well-regarded communications director and her deputy are both leaving the campaign, with the director headed to? run press operations for Louisiana Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne in a tough primary election. That?s not exactly a vote of confidence in Cain?s presidential prospects.

Herman Cain's campaign isn?t dead by any means. But look at the difference between his campaign and that of Texas Congressman Ron Paul. With Paul rising in the polls, the congressman started cutting aggressive broadcast ads pounding Texas Gov. Rick Perry, among others, and hauling in campaign dollars. Paul?s got two events in New Hampshire today.

When you peel off the campaign trail for four weeks in the heat of the fight, it raises questions about just what the heck a candidate is doing in the race anyway. As Decoder previously wrote, all candidates not named Rick Perry or Mitt Romney have another goal in running for president to keep them going in the face of their slim poll numbers. For Ron Paul, it?s moving the national conversation toward his libertarian themes. For Jon Huntsman, it?s setting up a potential bid in 2016. For Michele Bachmann, it?s enshrining herself as a leading light of the GOP?s most hard-right members.

When you take yourself off the campaign trail just to flog a book, it raises the question: Why are you still around, Herman Cain? And what?s the real motive behind this run?
