Cuba – God, I hate Obama sooooo much

Posted by Troy on 21st March 2016 in Current Events, Political

I really do.  So, Obama decides to lift the embargos on Cuba.  Ya know, I’m actually for this.  We deal with China, after all, there’s no way to say that’s not a double standard.  But we are giving Cuba all sorts of concessions, and that is a joke.  Here’s how that conversation should go down:

“We have decided to lift our embargos.”

“Oh great!  You need to give us concessions.”

“Ah.  Well… ____ you.  We’ll see you in another 50 years.”

But no, we’ll give them concessions.  Strike one.

Of course, all of this is just a dog and pony show.  This is Obama edging towards, “We need to give Gitmo back to Cuba.”  Strike two.  Seriously, if you think he’s not trying for that, you’re fooling yourself.  That’s what this is all about.

But no.  Not enough.  He had to make me hate him even more by laying a wreath at the memorial for the revolution fighters.  What, those guys that brought communism and 60 years of suffering to their nation?  You have to pause at a memorial to Che Guevara?  Really?

It’s rare I say I hate someone but ____!  Really?!!!

Nine more months of this…

Long Live the Constitution!

Florida Debate Results

Mitt and Newt squared off in a battle royal (at least in the beginning).  I felt like Santorum and Ron Paul were largely ignored.

Romney – He did okay.  The problem for him is okay is not good enough.  You cannot try to sound eloquent and stammer.  It’s just not going to work.  If you wanna talk like Reagan, you better do a better job of it.

Newt – Newt had another solid performance with a lot of back and forth.  I think that Ron Paul did the best attack against him over him stepping down.  His weakness has been exposed though.  He is going to be attacked constantly about being a lobbyist.  I do think he did a great job turning it around on the Medicare point.

Santorum – He wasn’t given a lot of air time.  He did some good for himself in making the point that Mitt and Newt supported three of the the main policies of Obama.  Unfortunately, he didn’t get enough air time where he could actual make some ground.

Ron Paul – It was another rough night for him.  He didn’t get a lot of airtime, and people don’t often like to hear the truth.  His response to Cuba being a platform for terrorist should have been, “And perhaps if we had been trading with them, they would view us as a valuable trading partner and not want to help the terrorists because we are too important to them.”  He was also hurt on Iran again, despite everything he said being true (that a blockade is an act of war, so why are we shocked that they are threatening these types of things).  I still like him as he is the only one that promotes the Constitution.  He is right about how the Constitution would have prevented all this.

If I had to rank my preferences: Ron Paul, Clint Eastwood (landslide victory), Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and finally Mitt Romney.  Ron Paul is the only one offering any alternative to the policies that got us into this mess in the first place.

Long Live the Constitution!
