President Bush is Feeling the Love

with 5 comments

Recent polls have shown President Bush’s approval rating to be somewhere between waiting in line for the DMV and filing income taxes.   I am happy to report that our noble leader has been noticing a much different reaction not picked up in the polls. 

When he travels around the country, Bush feels less “antipathy” than he used to in the crowds, along the motorcade routes, and expressed by the individuals who talk to him at his events. “He feels there has been a shift in attitudes out there that’s not reflected in polling data,” according to a White House aide.

White House officials say that while the most recent AP-Ipsos poll may show that less than 30% of Americans support the job the President is doing, they hope to get almost half the country to stop disapproving by January.  “With the jeering and throwing things down to a minnimum, the President is making real progress in winning over the American people,” said one aide.

A Great Bunch of Gals

I recently found my blog getting links from the site www.women4mccain.com.  I have to say I am impressed.  These girls have their act together and I have to say they’re lookers too.  Check out their site as well. Especially if you’re female.  And remember if you’re an attractive conservative single woman between the ages of 21 and 27 be sure to include your email address with any comments on this blog.

They have some wonderful prefabs I’m dying to get a look at.  I’ll start posting again Monday.  In the meantime moderation has been turned on.  I’ll be back off as soon as I get back.  I’m only doing it to protect from spam and I promise all real posts will go through no matter how leftist.

McCain isn’t Bush’s Third Term, He’s Cheney’s First

leave a comment »

Lie-berals have complained that putting McCain in the White House would be like giving George Bush a third term.  Although, they never say what would be so wrong about a third term for Bush.  However, it is becoming increasingly clear that McCain would really be akin to Dick Cheney getting a first term as President. 

Dick Cheney’s daughter Liz, not the gay one, said on MSNBC, “At the same time, I think on the really important issues that face the country, on issues like the war on terror and the economy, Senator McCain in fact is advocating those policies that those of us who supported President Bush and the Vice President believe are the right ones for this nation.”

And McCain is efusive in his praise for Cheney, calling him “one of the most capable, experienced, intelligent and steady vice presidents this country has ever had.”

While writing his 2007, biography of Cheney, writer Stephen Hayes asked McCain if he would like to have Cheney as his VP. McCain said: “I don’t know if I would want him as vice president. He and I have the same strengths. But to serve in other capacities? Hell, yeah.”

We may not be able to get a third Bush term, but since Cheney can’t run himself. Maybe, though John McCain with his similiar strengths could be the next best thing to President Cheney.

Democrats to Blame for Economic Woes

with 3 comments

Maybe, its just me, but the more I hear people complain about the economy the madder I get. It isn’t so much that I disagree that the economy is in a bit of a slow spell so much as I get tired of hearing it all blamed on the President. The reason that the economy is having issues isn’t George Bush or the Republicans, but the Democrat party and the local Democrat elected officials. If you want to find states where things are booming, look for Republican controlled states.

Case in point, Texas is doing terrific right now. The fact that Texans don’t complain much probably obscures this fact from the rest of the country, but in this Republican state Maserati sales are up 86 percent so far this year, according to the TexAuto Facts Report.

Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent are expanding their luxury stores at the Galleria shopping mall. New construction permits in the city have jumped by almost 30 percent. The region added more than 100,000 jobs last year. And the mayor just proposed a dream budget for next year featuring more cops and lower property taxes.

Now, this may be a result of belt tightening as well because the Maserati GranTurismo does get 30 mph on the highway, but the point is Houston in particular and Texas in general is doing great. If the other American cities would return to the work ethic that made this country great instead of looking to Uncle Sam for more handouts, they could achieve the same type of success.

“We know that everybody is talking about a recession in the U.S., but we’re not experiencing that here,” said Tracye McDaniel, executive vice president of the Greater Houston Partnership, a business development group. “We exist in this bubble, if you will.”

Word Press Frustration

leave a comment »

I always enjoy putting a picture with my posts, but Word Press seems to have changed the interfeace again and there is no option for inserting a picture.  I can’t say I’m terribly happy about this.  I have a few stories for today that will shock and awe some folks I think.

Helping McCain Win in November

with one comment

In what can only be described as a rather drastic response to Barack Obama’s decision to not take public funding, John McCain’s chief adviser Charlie Black outlined McCain’s strategy for the November election.  In a recent article in Fortune Magazine, Black called the assassination of Benazir Bhutto a big help.  He also stated that a terrorist attack on US Soil would “certainly be a big advantage to him [McCain]”  I think this is something we can all get behind.  While I would hope it wouldn’t be a big terrorist attack or anything, a small bombing or similiar calamity could be just the jump start that the McCain campaign has been looking for.  We know that terrorists hate us for our freedoms, but ironically they could help us all exercise one of our greatest freedoms.
