Talking Points Tuesdays – After Florida GOP Primary, Then What?

Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich

With Mitt Romney expecting a big victory in Florida tonight, what will happen to Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum presidential aspirations?

Well…

I don’t see any reason for Rick Santorum to continue after Florida… Besides the political reasons there is also his family.  Say what you want about Rick Santorum, but one thing you can’t deny is his devotion to family.  With his daughter recently becoming ill (they say she is getting better) I see reality settling in for Rick and I fully expect that he suspend his campaign in the next couple of days.  Santorum can walk away from the campaign trail with pride as he has done better than most expected, and at this point he can still be an influence in this primary season for the GOP.  With Santorum capturing the evangelical endorsement I am sure Newt and Mitt would like to have some of that support thrown their way.  Santorum may not be a “King Maker” but he can still play a role all the way to the convention.

As for Newt, well the grandiose one will definitely keep trucking on. I can’t see the blowhard calling it quits, especially if he gets a beat down tonight in Florida… He ain’t going out like that!  Plus Joe Scarborough recently made a good point about Newt continuing after Florida.

“And let me tell you something, a 20-point loss in Florida — that’s not a nuclear holocaust,” Scarborough said on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” on NBC.

“February is a down month. That gives the strategist three or four weeks to plan and then look at the calendar. You look at Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Texas soon after that. If I have to bet on Newt’s strongest state, I list all of those. That’s exactly what he needs.” – The Daily Caller

With that being said I have to agree with Joe (it happens), with Mitt struggling to consistently win over Conservatives there is a chance for Newt to gain some ground and recover from Florida with the next set of southern states.  Keep in mind as Scarborough stated, Newts strategists will have some time to regroup with no primaries in the month of February.

PLUS, Newt picked up the endorsement of Herman Cain! Wait… WHO????

On the flip-side Romney strategist can’t be thrilled with the upcoming downtime in February; the last debate was probably Mitt’s best performance as he finally seemed comfortable attacking Newt… It’s all about momentum and after Florida Mitt will be losing some of that.

And no I did not forget about Ron Paul but the guy didn’t even campaign in Florida; word is with Florida being an older crowd Paul’s campaign decided it wasn’t a good fit for him.  It’s the best thing for Paul when you think about, Mitt Romney and his super PAC spent $15 million dollars attacking Newt all over Florida compared to the $4 million Newt spent.  No way Paul can hang with that much money being spent so it’s best he just do a walk-by in Florida.  Besides, skipping Florida is a good thing for him as more reports came out from former staffers claiming Paul knew about the racist content in those newsletter he claims he knew nothing about.

tsk tsk tsk Ron Paul…..

Ron Paul

Oh well, these debates have been some what entertaining so why not a couple more!!!

As always….

If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!

Talking Points Tuesdays – Do you STILL think Herman Cain is serious??

So after watching Herman Cain over the past couple of weeks I am convinces this kat is a little off, in his own way I still think this he is serious about running for President.  I refuse someone would put themselves in the position of being a fool for no reason, and I don’t believe it’s all about selling books.  Although the money he is making off book sales doesn’t hurt, and at the end of the day you’re not going to try to stop making money.

But…..

Herm got some issues and I don’t mean sexual harassment charges or possible campaign finance issues, Cain’s problem is that he has no one to tell him that he should quit!!!

I mean just look at his gaffes:

  1. 9-9-9 Tax Plan, nice catch phrase but get into the details and there is a lot to complain about. Both sides of the aisle have their issues with this plan.
  2. 1st he said he told Wolf Blitzer before Vegas debate he would negotiate with terrorist, then during the debate back tracked and said he wouldn’t
  3. Claim to be joking and then not joking about creating an electrified fence to protect United States border and fry some illegals, SMH….
  4. His handling of sexual harassment scandals from the past; 1st he could not recall and then he could recall but mis-stated the payouts.  Now up to 4 women who have had encounters with the Hermanator!
But wait there’s more……
Here is a clip from The Rachel Maddow Show last week where Rachel has FINALLY figured out Cain’s campaign; this is a great job by Maddow’s staff for the research they put in for this….
Ummmmm, so this guy really took a phrase from Pokemon????
WHO DOES THAT?????
And with all this silliness he has not lost anything with GOP voters, in fact he has gained as he has been raising money playing the victim.  WTF, wake up folks, I know Mitt Romney is not perfect but there has to be someone better than Herm????
As always….

F-A-Natic Fridays – Another STUPID Herman Cain ad….

Here we go again with another STUPID Herman Cain campaign ad, who the hell is doing the creative thinking for Cain’s campaign ads????

Does Cain review these ads before they are released? If so his judgement is poor and I definitely don’t want him making ANY crucial decisions for the United States.

WHO THE HELL IS NICK SEARCY???

So far Cain has some of the worse campaign ads I have ever seen, and what’s up with the creepy smile Cain gives at the end of his campaign ads?

So what I can gather from this ad is that they are trying to poke fun at President Obama for reading his speeches from a teleprompter and being a community organizer.  After more than 3 years of the Obama presidency this is all Herm and his crew got for Obama?!?!

GTFOH….

I guess killing Osama Bin Ladenal-Awlaki and helping to capture and kill Muammar Gaddafi doesn’t mean anything as well.  Instead Mr Searcy wants us to support the CEO of Godfather Pizza who would flipped-flopped on negotiating with terrorist, doesn’t know what a neoconservative is, and thinks it’s cool not knowing who are the leaders of middle eastern countries.

This guy can’t be serious, he makes Sarah Palin look like a viable candidate.  Come on GOP, you can do better than this!!

As always….

WTF/WTH Wednesdays – Herman Cain’s silly campaign

I would love to stop giving Herman Cain any attention but I just can’t help myself, THIS GUY IS HILARIOUS!!!

And like the title of one of his books “They Think You’re Stupid”, the “They” being Republicans.  If it’s not his lack of understanding of his OWN 9-9-9 Tax Plan (now 9-0-9), or his lack of respect for foreign affairs.  Week after week the Republican front-runner continues to be seen for what he really is…

HE’S NOT A REAL CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT!!!!

Yup, I said it.  This guy is running what seems to be an uninformed campaign with no real staff in a key state like New Hampshire and he continues to mis-speak on issues like negotiating with terrorists and abortion.

Ummmmmm…….

Herm, you can’t say a woman should have a right to choose and then say abortion should not be legal!!!!

Get it together MAN!!!

But hey Herm has to be getting serious about his campaign, as he just released a new ad….

If I may I’ll steal from Robert Littal aka @BlkSportsOnline that deserves the Jason Terry “Struggle” face

Jason Terry Struggle Face!!!

WTF????

1st of all who the hell is Mark Block and why is he smoking a cigarette?  I will give Mr Block credit for thing, you guys are definitely running a “campaign like nobody ever seen” and we have definitely “NEVER seen a candidate like Herman Cain” before.

Somebody PLEASE get this fool Herman Cain!!!

As always….

Takeover Thursdays – Herman Cain “The Real Black Man”, LMAO!!!

"The Real Black Man"

It trips me out how Herman Cain REALLY believes that he is more Black than President Barack Obama and that Black folks that don’t want to listen to his ideas have been brainwashed by Democrats.  If you haven’t been paying attention Cain is trying to win the Republican nomination to run against President Obama in 2012.  Cain is a politician/columnist who is the former chairman and CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, and according to him his past experience would make him a better president than Obama.

Ummm….

So I can’t lie when I heard this kat was a the chairman and CEO of pizza chain I was hesitant to listen to his ideas; I don’t know maybe it was the idea of the former head of a pizza chain possibly sitting down with Israel and Palestine trying to hammer out peace… That caused the hesitation, HAHA!!

With that said I was still willing to hear this man out….

Well, that was until I started to hear Cain talk about being “The Real Black Man”, and how if he had Cancer now he would die because of President Obama passing the Affordable Care Act.

What???

This is the type of silliness that leads me to tune out the nutbag Republican candidates.  I am willing to listen to anyone who has ideas, but I can’t sit there and give any credibility to those who talk nonsense just to make a splash in the media or get some attention from the extreme Right-Wing of the Republican party.  Yes, I’m Democrat who fully supports President Obama but at the same time I realize Obama is not perfect and I am open to hearing new ideas.  Instead we have the Godfather of pizza trying to tell me that as a Black person my support of Democrats can only mean that I have been brainwashed, GTFOH!!!!

Word of advice for Mr. Cain, there is no need to go off the deep end like Perry or Bachmann.  Stick to the real message of jobs, reforming entitlements and the tax code; actually Cain might want to fall back on tax code reform.  I say that because his 9-9-9 tax plan is a great sound bite, BUT as a plan is lacking.

Also Cain should stop referring to Occupy Wall Street (#OccupyWallStreet or #OWS) protesters as Un-American:

“Don’t blame Wall Street, don’t blame the big banks, if you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself!”

“It is not a person’s fault if they succeeded, it is a person’s fault if they failed.”

Herman Cain seems to have a short memory when it comes to the damage Wall Street caused in the crash of 2008 which caused many Americans to lose their job.

But I guess I have to be careful who I laugh at, currently Cain  is the GOP front-runner in many polls.  SMH, we will see if the so-called “Real Black Man” can stand the spotlight of being the “Top Dawg”.
