Prayers Is Not the Answer

February 24, 2009

It is down right pitiful to listen to people like Gov. Sanford (R-SC) tell his constituents that he sends his prayers, while the people are bleeding.  I don’t know which stupid republican thought that now is the time to start campaigning for the presidency of 2012, but they were wrong.

The suffering of the people is taking place now, in every state.  This game of the republicans dedicated to proving they have relevancy can only be labeled as anti-American.  I thank my lucky stars that I do not live in SC or LA where the presidential aspiration of being the perfect GOP ass reigns.

I don’t see this crap withstanding the test of time.  There will have to be some caving if Sanford or Jindal expect to be Governors in 2010.  The people’s tolerance will not stand for too much more of this nonsense.  This is nothing but worthless sound bites anyway; especially, since we all know the State can overrule the governors and accept the money anyway.  How will that look?  Like mud in the face of both Sanford and Jindal.

Go Republicans bitches, go.


Jindal? What the heck, somebody go get Sarah quick!

bobby-jindal-large1You know the republicans defeat is still fresh in their minds and they are still looking for their next leader.  A poll, not too long ago, showed that empty headed Barbie was the GOP’s favorite by 64%.  But that poll was based off of the American people that associate with being called republicans (a lot of fringe Americans), not the politicians.

Meanwhile, others around the country were talking him up. No less an aspiring kingmaker than Steve Schmidt, the chief strategist of McCain’s failed presidential bid, sees Jindal as the Republican Party’s destiny. “The question is not whether he’ll be president, but when he’ll be president, because he will be elected someday.” The anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist believes, too, that Jindal is a certainty to occupy the White House, and conservative talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh has described him as “the next Ronald Reagan.”

Okay, so currently the only endorsements Jindal is receiving is from the likes of Steve Schmidt (McCain’s strategist, loser), Rush Limbaugh and Noquist (right wing nuts).  Not a ringing endorsement.  I guess in the next 4 to 8 years they hope to talk the people up into believing Jindal is the ONE.  Presumably that will work hand and hand with the GOP politicians deciding who will be their Obama?  Strange as it seems they do not have an interest in someone being different other than racially.  they have not yet injected how they will be more tolerant and less divisive.  Jindal would be a more positive face for the republican party but if they box him in to being just a prophet of a right wing nuts agenda it will not work.

I’ve listen to Jindal and found him to be reasonable and thus far sane.  He seems more focused on the real issues of our time.  I will not lie, if he ran for president and tried to push anti-abortion or any other right wing nut agenda down my throat then my feelings would change rapidly.

If the republicans allow Jindal to be progressive without being condescending it could work.  Even McCain might have made the election more closer if he had remained a maverick and not caved to the right wing nuts agenda (Kristol, Hanity, O’Reilly and et. al).  Nevertheless, some one needs to call Barbie and tell her that her party is trying to faze her out of the big picture.

Last weekend, 18 days after Barack Obama decisively defeated their candidate for president, a mostly Republican crowd of self-described conservatives received their first introduction to someone many prominent members of the GOP think could be the party’s own version of Obama.

Like the president-elect, Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana is young (37), accomplished (a Rhodes scholar) and, as the son of Indian immigrants, someone familiar with breaking racial and cultural barriers. He came to Iowa to deliver a pair of speeches, and his mere presence ignited talk that the 2012 presidential campaign has begun here, if coyly. Already, a fierce fight is looming between him and other Republicans — former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, who arrived in Iowa a couple of days before him, and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who is said to be coming at some point — for the hearts of social conservatives.

This is suppose to be Barbie’s big chance to come back strong.  Never mind that currently she lacks decorum, intellect and coherency.  She’s planning on coming back strong (I guess).  The republican politicians should not be counting her out.  The fringe loves her.  The big question is how will they feel about Jindal?  He is clearly not their usual type (color?) candidate.  Will they turn him into a Muslim?  Progressive?  Anti-American?  Just like they did President Obama?  Will age be enough?

“The Republicans really have no choice except to look at some people more youthful if they want to have a better chance of winning,” said Betty E. Johnson, an independent and the wife of a Cedar Rapids pastor, who voted for George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004 but who went for Obama over 72-year-old John McCain. “I liked Obama’s energy and hope. I don’t know, but maybe a younger person would give Republicans a feeling of more energy, openness.”

How does the republicans plan to eradicate the racist factor of their group?  Will Jindal be enough for the other minorities to say okay?  I mean come on, their connection with the fringe is still very painful and divisive.

It does not change the fact that I currently like Jindal.  But if and when the GOP machine starts up with the slime, will I still like him then?  Is the GOP only using Jindal for color against color?  I hope not, that would be unacceptable.

Could Jindal become the next president in 2012?  No.  Unless President Obama turns into a Black Bush, which I do not foresee happening.  Jindal 2016?  Maybe, but only if the republican party finds a way to include all the ethnic groups (including gays) and how all ethnic groups feel about the world, minus the right wing nuts perspective.

Enough said.
