Lady,you made my day

My wife must've thought I was going over the edge this morning because I couldn't stop laughing. I was laughing at a letter titled “Democrats are contradicting themselves." I'm sure there are times when Democrats contradict themselves because they are human,like everyone else, but this is certainly not one of those times. I don't think you can be called a hypocrite for distinguishing the differences between voting, which is a right, and showing  a picture ID to gain entrance to an event, which is a choice. There is no statistical data that shows rampant voter fraud. If legislators want to enact" ounce of prevention" laws, they should be aware that the right to vote should never be infringed.

The letter writer (on good source I'm sure) thought it was ironic that some ticket holders were denied entrance to the Democratic National Convention because they didn't have a picture ID. Being a good conservative letter writer, she made several assumptions to back up her outrageous claim of hypocrisy. First, the people asking for ID were probably hired by the convention hall to provide security, not deny someone the right of voting. If anyone has seen a picture of a political delegate, they know they have about 20 pieces of ID around their neck to get into the different events, meetings and who knows what. I wouldn't be surprised if the tickets were color coated because the delegates had assigned seating. The president, vice president and other important dignitaries were going to be inside the convention center; enhance security measures are to be expected and demanded.

It's not only the Democrats who think that the overnight voter ID laws were politically motivated because it made it harder for the poor, elderly, students and minorities to vote. Federal judges are looking at these newly enacted voter suppression laws enacted by Republican governors.

Excessive security measures are not necessarily considered racial issues because you will find that most Libertarians (white or black) think they are in an intrusion of our civil liberties.

The letter writer chose to use the" victim card" because decent superior, conservative, Christian patriots like her are now in a minority. You certainly can't call her a racist because she's bulletproof; you see she's a proud American Latina...:-)

The letter writer didn't have to do any research because all she had to do watch the DNC convention on MSNBC.  She would have learned that the president insisted that the platform keep in the reference to God, no matter how all the delegates voted.  She would have seen that the voice of disapproval  outshouted the” yeas” but she would have seen the blown- up picture of the platform with "God" inserted, as Mayor Villaraigosa asked for a recount.  The Democrats were well aware of the optics and how their opponents would try to use that against them.  It didn’t work for the GOP and they should move on.  I don’t think God cared one way or the other.

Elsewhere, the Sunday talk shows were about foreign policy and what should and shouldn't be done. It's a shame that the administration sent out Dr. Susan Rice to say that the turbulence was caused by a 14-minute video clip. Although all the details are not in, it's not hard to assume that the attacks were coordinated for maximum coverage. The protesters were angry about a prominent Al Qaeda member being killed by a drone, natural unrest, some anti Americanism because of our alliance with Israel and it all was done to coincide with the anniversary of 911. There are legitimate questions to be answered about security, and some will talk of curtailing foreign aid. In the past, we would have not  seen these protest and because like them are not; ruthless dictators would have nipped it in the bud before it got started. The new leaders are going through growing pains as well as the people. We mustn't forget that on the other side of the street, our Libyan friends were holding up signs apologizing for the murder of the ambassador and three other Americans.

I've heard the expression that conservatives aren't really Republicans, but I thought that it was just a “Don’t blame me for Bush" line. Conservative Amy Holmes, told Howard Kurtz of CNN's "Reliable Sources" that the GOP was a tool or a launching pad, but her ideals and ideology come from a conservative mindset, even if it's in a third party. I'm beginning to understand now. You see, you never get too old to learn.

I've heard so many outcries of how Romney should be 6 to 7 points ahead because of our poor economy and that was coming from prominent Republicans.  If that's so, it reminds me of the Dallas Cowboys vs. the Seattle Seahawks  game yesterday.  Paul Ryan took the kickoff and fumbled giving the Democrats 3 points.  Then Mitt Romney punts and gets it blocked giving Obama a touchdown.  Sure, they can make a comeback but they need to run the table and get some help from the Obama campaign.  The Mitt Romney campaign has a lot of money left and I have no doubt that they will carpet bomb the battle ground states in late October through November but now the onus is on Mitt Romney to look like the overwhelming better choice after debates with President Obama.

Mitt Romney & team were supposed to start all over today but supposedly a mole has revealed a tape where Mitt himself describes the Obama voters this way " "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney says in one clip. "All right -- there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing."

The campaign was supposed to concentrate on specifics but I thought it was going to be about specifics on his economic plans .

Apparently David Corn of "Mother Jones" has the original copy and is not sharing it with other new sources because Politico,ABC, NYT, or the Washing ton Post is not reporting anything about this story.

That is insulting. I'm voting for him no matter what am I am none of those things.

Just let him keep sticking his foot in his mouth like that.

Mike said...

Politico and the NYT have Now picked up the story...Keep talking Miit,that way Democratic voters will come out in full force.

One of my FB friends calls him Myth. I love that!

Rick Santorum was right. Read Stonekettle Station.

Rick Santorum said smart people of our country will never be on their side

Mike said...

Forget the presidential debates the best one may be the upcoming debate next month between Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly ..O'Reilly doesn't stand a chance.

Romney offered a half-hearted apology tonight for the remarks I posted but two miserable weeks at this stage in the game does not make him look presidential.

That picture of him on Politico right now is priceless. His eyes say it all. A little bit "deer in the headlights" and a little bit scared and just a tad "Oh sh#T".

The movie 2016 is interesting. Obama's founding father's are different from mine. Have you seen it?

born2Bme said...

Don't have the least desire to see it. It's an opinion piece and all of us know that what our parents do or think, has nothing to do with what we do or think.
Mentality, or frame of mind, is not hereditary

Sugar Magnolia said...

Von Prien - As a matter of fact, I have seen it, and not only are the founding fathers VERY different from mine, but his mentors are as well.

Born2bme - sorry but if you haven't seen the movie, then you can't know how incorrect you are about it being an opinion piece. That couldn't be further from the truth. What is contained in the movie are cold, hard facts. You know, the kind that the media so widely ignores these days.

born2Bme said...

I've read enough "opinions" of those that know more than I do, to know that I have no desire to see it.
I won't waste a penny of my hard earned money on trash like that.
