After this November elections in which the Republican Party is expected to win a majority in the House of Representatives and may be even the Senate, President Obama will be looking for ways to overcome a vote of no  confidence by the American people.

 Obama has already lost the independents, older voters, and men and most Republicans cannot wait to defeat him in 2012.

Obama needs to attract women voters if he has any chance at all to win in 2012.

Therefore, the political ruling class are all a buzz that he pull the old switcheroo.

Move Hillary Clinton from her Secretary of State position to the Vice-President position on the 2012 Democratic Party ticket and offer Vice-President Biden the Secretary of State position.

If President Obama did this, he would unite the Democratic Party and forestall a primary challenge by Hillary Clinton in 2012 for the Democratic Presidential Nomination, that she might very well win.

I think this would be a smart move given the possibility of a woman on the Republican Presidential ticket in 2012.

Newt Gingrich will be running for President in 2012 and will pick Sarah Palin as his running mate.

Ron Paul may be running again and if he does he will attract the youth vote and the woman vote should he select a woman for the Vice-President spot.

Should Christine O’Donnell win the Delaware Senate seat, she would make a great running mate to get both the youth and woman vote not to mention the men and older voters.

Will Ron Paul run?

Will Ron Paul run as a Republican or a tea party Libertarian?

A Ron Paul/Christine O’Donnell Libertarian Party ticket would make the 2012 Presidential race very interesting.

The grassroot tea party movement would most likely support a Paul/O’Donnell ticket over a Gingrich/Palin ticket.

Both the Republican and Democratic parties have over the last six years lost the support of major portions of their political base.

Many movement conservatives are now independents.

Yes, independents and the tea party patriots will vote Republican in 2010, however, if the Republicans revert back to form, they will lose them again in 2012.

Should this happen, then either a new third-party or the Libertarian Party will be the primary beneficiary.

Two years are a long time in politics.

The winner for the Presidency in 2012 will need to have money, organization, message, momentum, and ambition (MOMMA) to win.

While I expected Newt Gingrich to run in 2008 and would have supported him, I am waiting to see what the Republicans do in 2011 and 2012.

Should the Republican establishment fail to support the FairTax, surplus budgets, immigration law enforcement, and close down several Federal Departments and agencies, I would vote for a Ron Paul/Christine O’Donnell  on a new third-party ticket.

The time to cut the size and scope of the Federal Government by at least 50% is now.

If the Republicans do not have the leaders or courage to make these changes, then the American people will turn to a new political party with the leaders that do.

The times they are a changin.

Obama-Clinton ticket ‘on the table,’ Woodward says

By Alexander Mooney

“…The scenario – whereby Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would switch positions – has been bandied about by political observers for months, seen by some as a potentially savvy strategy to gin up excitement among what appears to be a depressed Democratic base.But it’s never been clear if the idea has been actually discussed in the White House, until now.

“President Obama needs some of the women, Latinos, retirees that she did so well with during the [2008] primaries and, so they switch jobs, not out of the question, and the other interesting question is, Hillary Clinton could run in her own right in 2016 and be younger than Ronald Reagan when he was elected president.”

Clinton will be 69 years old and three months in January 2017. President Ronald Reagan was just shy of his 70th birthday in January, 1980.

“Now you talk to Hillary Clinton or her advisers and they say ‘no, no there’s not a political consideration here,'” Woodward continued. “Of course the answer is, you point out to them that her clout around the world when she goes to Europe, Asia, anywhere is in part, not just because she’s Secretary of State or because she was married to President Clinton, that people see a potential future president in her.” …”

Hillary for Vice President?

The movement is gaining traction.

By JOHN FUND

“…As President Obama sinks in the polls, Democrats and liberal pundits inevitably are searching for a scapegoat. The most likely victim appears to be gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden, who has become the focus of speculation that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just might replace him on the 2012 Democratic ticket.

Former Virginia Gov. Doug Wilder, his state’s first African-American governor, touched off the controversy. Writing at Politico.com last week, Mr. Wilder argued that Mr. Biden’s tenure has been undistinguished and chock full of “too many YouTube moments.” He charged that Mr. Biden “has continued to undermine what little confidence the public may have had in him.”

 

By way of contrast, Mr. Wilder says that Hillary Clinton has excelled in her role. “Clinton has been nothing but a team player who has earned good marks since being asked to serve as secretary of state.” Having Mrs. Clinton join the 2012 ticket, he said, would revive the Democratic Party and reestablish the party’s working-class voters who found her appealing during the 2012 primaries against Mr. Obama.

Pundits jumped on Mr. Wilder’s comments and expressed near-universal approval. On his syndicated national show, Chris Matthews of MSNBC assembled a panel to discuss the Wilder intervention. Howard Fineman of Newsweek, a longtime Hillary watcher, said Mrs. Clinton would accept a place on the 2012 ticket “in a second.” John Heilemann, a reporter New York magazine, said the major obstacle would be to “figure out a way for Biden to slide aside happily” and suggested that Mr. Biden replace Mrs. Clinton as Secretary of State. …”

Tea Party Looking For Their Amazing Mrs. Pritchard–Fear and Trembling of Democratic and Republican Establishments

Posted on September 20, 2010. Filed under: Blogroll, Communications, Economics, Education, Fiscal Policy, Language, Law, liberty, Life, Links, media, Monetary Policy, People, Philosophy, Politics, Raves, Taxes, Video, Wisdom | Tags: , , , |

Mark Levin Rejects The GOP Establishment

Tea Party Candidates Win Key Primary Elections

Delaware Among Primaries With a Surprising Finish

Primaries Wrap-Up: Tea Party Coup

Joe Miller wins – Sen. Lisa Murkowski Concedes Alaskan GOP Senate Primary 8/31/2010

Murkowski Concedes in Alaska

The Democratic and Republican party elites’  reaction to candidates winning that are supported by the tea party patriots is revealing.

Both parties are in a state of palpable fear and trembling that this could easily get out of control and the ruling political class’ favorite candidates of both parties could lose in the November election.

The Republican political establishment were beside themselves when Christine O’Donnell running for the Republican Party Senate nomination in Delaware and endorsed by tea party favorite Sarah Palin beat  Republican Party’s anointed nine-term Congressman Mike Castle who they thought was a shoe-in to win in November.

The reaction was the same when Joe Miller backed by tea party supporters and Sarah Palin beat seating Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski who many Republicans thought would win in November.

Obama’s Democratic party  advisers are seriously considering portraying the tea party as “captured” by the Republican party.

A more accurate description is the conservative and libertarian wings of the conservative movement are either going to recapture the Republican party or establish another political party.

What both political party establishment elites fail to get is that many tea party patriots could care less about either political party.

Tea party patriots want to see a reduction in the size and scope of the Federal Government which means deep and permanent cuts in Federal Government expenditures, the shutting down of up to ten Federal Departments and hundreds of Federal programs and replacing Federal income, payroll, gift and estate taxation with a national sales consumption tax on new goods and services.

This means no more bailouts, stimulus spending bills, deficits spending, new taxes and higher tax rates, and raising the National debt limits yet again.

The attempt to frame tea party candidates as extremists is laughable given the total fiscal irresponsibility of both political parties over the last ten years.

The tea party patriots know that so-called entitlements, Social Security and Medicare are not sustainable and must be truly reformed by making them individual private property that is controlled by the individual and not the Federal Government.

The progressives/liberals in the Republican party better get behind the winner in their primaries or change to the Democratic party.

Otherwise there is a real possibility that the tea party could become the winning alliance party of independents and former Democrats and Republicans with both the Republican and Democratic parties.

The tea party will be watching for a  leader emerging in 2012.

Who will be the American Amazing  Mrs Pritchard?

The Amazing Mrs Pritchard (2006) / ep2 / p2/6

Some say that Sarah Palin is that person.

Possible but not likely.

An unknown American citizen with vision,  integrity, and the ability to communicate ideas and inspire the American people will emerge.

A new political party will also emerge from the tea party rallies.

The new political party will be an alliance of the American people that were formerly Democrats, Republicans, and Libertarians.

43 Days to Decide: Dems Pumping Up Tea Party Fear Factor as Movement Surges

“…The White House is pushing back on a report that President Obama’s advisers are contemplating an all-out ad war to discredit Republicans by way of the Tea Party. But with the primaries now behind them, top Democratic officials have already made the Tea Party fear factor an integral part of their messaging.

Amid mounting predictions that Democrats could lose at least one chamber of Congress, a rhetorical campaign  has been underway for weeks to cast the Republican Party as driven by the “extremist” faction of its conservative wing.

Warnings about the direction of the GOP got louder after dark-horse candidate Christine O’Donnell beat moderate Rep. Mike Castle for the Delaware Senate nomination last week and conservative Joe Miller beat incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the Alaska primary — prompting Murkowski to launch a write-in campaign.

Obama Aides Weigh Bid to Tie the G.O.P. to the Tea Party

By JACKIE CALMES and MICHAEL D. SHEAR

“…White House and Congressional Democratic strategists are trying to energize dispirited Democratic voters over the coming six weeks, in hopes of limiting the party’s losses and keeping control of the House and Senate. The strategists see openings to exploit after a string of Tea Party successes split Republicans in a number of states, culminating last week with developments that scrambled Senate races in Delaware and Alaska. “We need to get out the message that it’s now really dangerous to re-empower the Republican Party,” said one Democratic strategist who has spoken with White House advisers but requested anonymity to discuss private strategy talks.

Democrats are divided. The party’s House and Senate campaign committees are resistant, not wanting to do anything that smacks of nationalizing the midterm elections when high unemployment and the drop in Mr. Obama’s popularity have made the climate so hostile to Democrats. Endangered Congressional candidates want any available money to go to their localized campaigns. …”

Rove and Krauthammer–Republican Operative and Pundit Are Wrong Over O’Donnell Chances–Videos

Charles Krauthammer got the Buckley Rule wrong when he implies Mike Castle is a conservative.

Rove is a  Republican operative and not a conservative operative.

Rove wants Republicans to win no matter what their political philosophy, while conservatives and libertarians want to vote for conservative and libertarian  candidates no matter what their political party affiliation.

Who thinks Mike Castle is a conservative?

I certaintly do not.

Mike Castle is a viable moderate Republican, he is not a viable conservative/libertarian Republican.

Castle would need at least a 80% American  Conservative Union rating to be considered a conservative by many movement conservatives and most conservatives like to ratings in the 90 percentile.

Castle has a lifetime 52% ACU rating and a 56% rating in 2009.

Castle is a moderate Republican or what used to be called a country club Republican or a Rockefeller Republican and today is called a RINO, Republican In Name Only.

Castle  favors a huge tax increase, the cap and trade energy tax.

On this issue alone, many conservatives and Republicans would never vote for him.

On a number of issues including the right to bear arms and abortion he again would be voting with the liberal or progressive Democratic party.

Castle also favored the bailouts by voting for TARP (Troubled Asset Recovery Program).

Sounds like a liberal or progressive Democrat to me.

The myth that only a liberal Republican can win in “blue” states is just that a myth.

Does any one remember the conservative Republican Reagan victories of 1980 and 1984.

Electoral College 1984

 Electoral College 1980

 

 

 

 I too hope Charles Krauthammer  and Karl Rove are both wrong about the ability of Christine O’Donnell to win the Delaware Senate seat.

Both Krauthammer and Rove forget that millions of former Republicans are now independents for the simple reason that many Republicans forgot their conservative and libertarian principles.

I believe Christine O’Donnell is going to surprise the Republican establishment including its operatives and pundits.

In your heart you know Christine O’Donnell is right.

American Conservative Union

“…Most conservatives start any analysis of voting records by studying the member’s score from the ACU.  Castle receives a dismal 52% lifetime average with eh ACU.  It is important to keep in mind that the ACU ratings are not nearly as comprehensive as some of the other rating systems.  They merely pick 20 votes per year that are extremely high profile and fundamental to ideological alignment.  In other words, just because someone scores in the 80’s or even 90’s with the ACU, doesn’t mean that they are stellar conservatives.  Quite the contrary, someone who scores near 50%, indicates that they vote with the radical left on 50% of the core issues.  This doesn’t even factor in their support for hundreds of lower profile big government votes.

It is also important to note that there is a distinct trend with all of the RINO’s in terms of their ACU scores.  They all make a concerted effort to become significantly more liberal the longer they stay in Congress.  Therefore, the future trajectory of their pending voting record will be even more disastrous than their past lifetime average would indicate.  In the case of Mike Castle, he actually scored in the 20’s in 05, 07, and 08.  He has only moved slightly to the right during the past year and a half because of his Senate bid.  Anyone who thinks that he will not slide back to the 20’s and vote against repealing any of the Obama agenda if elected, obviously has no concept of congressional history.

Club for Growth

Castle scores a horrendous 43% from CFG for 2009.  Again, since his announced Senate bid he has been much more conservative than previous years.  In 07 and 08 he earned a 35% and 26% respectively.  In every year, Castle has had the most liberal voting record of any member of the 175+ Republican caucus.  So in 2008, when Arlen Specter scored a 44%, Mike Castle scored a 26%! The CFG ratings give us more of an idea of how much of a statist the member is than the ACU.

Guns 

Castle garners an F from the NRA and Gun Owners of America.  In fact, he hasn’t earned anything but a 0, F, or F- from a pro 2nd amendment group since the early 90’s.  Nuff’ said.

Life
Castle has consistently earned a 0 from the National Right to Life, while usually scoring a perfect 100% from NARAL and Planned Parenthood. …”

Mark Levin interviews Christine O’Donnell for US Senate in Delaware

 

I am first and foremost a movement conservative of the traditional libertarian wing.

I would describe my political philosophy as classical liberal or what in America is called libertarian.

I vote for the candidate that comes closest to my own political philosophy and ignore  party labels.

Today I consider myself an independent.

I have simply given up on the Republican Party for they have not limited the size and scope of government and have repeatedly  engaged in government intervention both domestically and abroad.

The Democratic Party is a  collectivist/statist party that favors heavy government intervention into the lives of the American people.

The Republican Party is also a collective/statist party that favors significant government intervention into the lives of the American people and the citizens of other countries as well–nation building.

Neither party will permanently close ten Federal Department that need to be shut down.

Neither party will support a FairTax, a national consumption tax to replace Federal income, payroll, gift and estate taxes.

Neither party will vigorously support immigration law enforcement and telling illegal aliens to please go home or you and your family will be deported.

Neither party will make both Social Security and Medicare, an individually controlled and owned account and insurance.

Neither party will pay down the National Debt and reduce unfunded liabilities.

Why? Both parties are populated with professional  politicians more interested in holding office than in doing what is right and what the people are demanding.

The Republican Party at the local, state, and national level is deeply penetrated with progressives.

More and more Americans consider both political parties as damaged goods or brands.

Karl Rove is part of the problem. The reason many conservatives left the Republican Party were President Bush’s refusal to limit government spending by vetoing bills, comprehensive immigration reform and amnesty for illegal aliens, and his slowness in changing strategy and military commanders in the “war on terrorism” in Iraq.

The Republican deserved to lose in both 2006 and 2008.

Keeping running progressive Republicans and the Republican Party will be the third-party.

The Democratic Party under the leadership of Barack Obama is quickly becoming a third-party.

Let the Democratic Party and Republican parties destroy themselves as they wrecked the American economy.

A plaque on both parties for abandoning their principles for power.

Yes, Obama is five times worse but neither Bush nor Obama will ever get my vote nor will any candidate that is a progressive or socialist.

Let the people of Delaware decides whether they want a person running as a conservative or a progressive Republican.

If they want another Biden let them have one.

Rove better stop talking and start listening.

Defeat progressive liberals of both parties.

In your heart you know she is right!
