Republicans Want my Vote???

After President Barack Obama was re-elected, the RNC did a post-mortem on the corpse the current Republican Party. What they discovered was the world’s worst kept secret…

The current Republican Party is the ‘Old White Man Party’; if you don’t believe me checkout the voting demographics.

So weeks after the 2012 elections many Republicans talked about expanding their base. Talking more about immigration reform and focusing on the middle class.

Well, that was at least a good thought.

In a move that really should not shock but it still has, Republicans seem to have boycotted the 50th Anniversary March On Washington celebration. At first many took notice of the absence of former Presidents George H W Bush and George W Bush; both reported declined the invitation due to health reasons (Dubya had surgery recently and Herbert is really old).

Yes the Bush’s absence was very noticeable but for me the was not the most shocking for me. The absence of elected Republican officials like Speaker of the House John Boenher and others like Rep Eric Cantor (House leadership) and Senator John McCain rang much more loudly. And this was not a case of an oversight, it has been reported Republicans were invited to the ceremony (Even Bill O’Reilly backed up that report) but just decided not to go.

SMH…

And Republicans want my vote???

As always….

President Obama Must Speak on Syria….

President Obama must speak on Syria and the reason why the United States has to act against Syria’s use of chemical weapons; and he must speak directly to the people.  Today the president once again briefly commented on Syria and this is just not enough, it’s not enough when you are talking about taking military action that would impact the US not only in the international community but also domestically.

Polls show the American people want to know more before any action is taken, but in all honesty I don’t know if that is going to happen.  The plans are already set with 5 destroyers loaded with more than 200 cruise missiles ready to launch, and action can happen as soon as Saturday with the last of the UN Inspectors leaving Syria.

IMO, the president should wait for the UN Inspectors’ final report and then address the nation presenting what the inspectors discovered.  I fully support military action (limited with no boots on the ground) but no more sending out Secretary of State John Kerry, it’s time for the president to tell us what’s next!!!
