Buzz Building Around Walker

Posted for Commenter Cyclops:
Buzz On Walker

Romney Out

Romney was probably the most competent person who ever offered himself for that high office. Also, he is a decent man. But his decency was no match for Obama’s Chicago Mafia and it would be no match for the ruthless Clinton machine. He is better off enjoying his wealth and family.

Soros vs Koch Brothers, Posted by Nobody

Richard Larson, Western Journalism 

"David and Charles Koch are brothers who run Koch Industries, an oil refinery business that is the second largest private firm in the country. The brothers are tied at number 6 on Forbes top billionaires list with personal net worth of about $41 billion each. They’ve expanded and maintained their fortunes by successfully providing the refined product that keeps America moving – oil."

Off with Their Heads! The Pathological Republican Party

Commenters on this blog often claim to be the true conservatives with the rest of us being imposters.  Then they call themselves “the base.”  My question is “Which base?”  Are they Business Conservatives who want lower taxes and less regulation?  Strong National Defense Conservatives who want greater spending for defense and more involvement in the world?  States Rights Conservatives who want to return power to the states?  Social Conservatives who want to conserve traditional values?

Someone might reply “Well, I am all of them.”  The problem arises however, when some of us are not.  Then when we declare we don’t fully belong to a particular subgroup, we are excommunicated from all.

For example, take me.  I am an all-out conservative when it comes to States Rights.  I want programs which return power to the people.  I have dedicated my life to that cause.

But, as to the second group, the strong National Defense on the other hand, I am uncomfortable with the likes of John McCain and Lindsey Graham.  To me they seem to have forgotten that we tried their approach.  Then we lost in Viet Nam, lost in Iraq, lost in Afghanistan.  Don’t we need to do something different? So, I now don’t consider myself to be a strong national defense conservative if it means fighting the present war the way we did the last recent ones.  Am I to be drummed out of the party?

Many of our readers will know, that as a conservative I have recently been hoisted on my own petard.  Like the Business Conservatives, I am strong for limited government.  However, when local business interests threatened my personal interests by taking away my zoning protection, I began to sound like a liberal.  Many commenters to this blog were ready to throw me out of the club.

Then there are the Social Conservatives.  They embarrass me.  I am not comfortable being a moralist, or even identified with such.  Does that mean I have to turn in my membership card?

All of the above then brings us to selecting our candidates for offices.  What if there is a candidate who well-represents that wing of the party with which we strongly identify but not all the wings?  Does that make them just chopped liver?

More On Possible Candidates

My favorite commentator Peggy Noonan op eded in the Wall Street Journal–“Please Don’t Do It, Mr. Romney.”  PEGGY NOONAN PLEASE DON'T DO IT, MR. ROMNEY She writes about what others are saying: “He is yesterday, we need tomorrow.”  “He is an always has been philosophically murky.”  “He was a gaffe machine-‘47%.” “....and these gaffs played into the party’s brand.” 

Then she adds her own two reasons

Malefic Soros Stirs Racial Problems

"Liberal billionaire George Soros has played a critical role in financing the Ferguson, Missouri, protest movement, giving at least $33 million in one year to back already established groups that "emboldened" on-the-ground activists there, The Washington Times reports."  George Soros
And the left demonizes our Koch brothers when there is not a smidgen of the Soros type of malevolence in them.

reCaptcha on comment page

I really hate the reCaptcha thing on comments.   This is the third time some geek on an ego trip has put this on Google Blogger.  We all howl.  Google takes it down, only to have the tyrants then put it back.  I like blogging with Google, but someone needs to be fired.
