Burning Down The White House Is Not A Joke!

When those in the Islamic community make a "threat"... unlike many of us in the West... they generally mean what they say and are committed to carry out their threats by-any-means-necessary.

That is why this latest Islamic threat to "burn down the White House" as compensation for the Koran burnings by U.S. troops in Afghanistan last week, should not be taken lightly by Americans.   

Nation of Islam leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan, seemed to be channeling this threat during his recent comments at the Nation of Islam's Annual Founder's Day, in  which he suggested an assassination plot against Obama might involve a "patsy," a person set up to take the blame for a broader conspiracy.
"I believe they want a Muslim to kill President Obama," Minister Farrakhan said.   []
Words have meanings! And in these very tense and volatile times in America, Israel, Iran, and the entire Middle East, threatening to burn down the White House is not a joking matter. 

I admit, I don't agree with many of the policies of this President and his Administration, and... would love to see my personal friend, Speaker Newt Gingrich––yes even with all his imperfections–– sworn in as the 45th President of the United States in 2013.  But, there are some threats that cannot be allowed to stand.  And threatening to burn down the people's house...the White House or threatening to assassinate the President of the United States... whoever he or she is... crosses the line for me! 

So, come on President Obama.  Stop apologizing and stand up to those who wish to do us––and YOU–– serious harm. These people are NOT playing.

President Obama needs to call one of those press conferences (post haste), and in no uncertain terms say something to the effect that if anything happens to the people's White House while he is President:
"We're gonna hunt you down"... and "smoke them out of their holes".  [President George W. Bush]

And that conversation needs to happen within the next few days!  Because  Americans will not tolerate outside forces threatening us... and will not tolerate a leader who allows us to be threatened without rebuttal and follow through retaliation.  Get on your game, Mr. Obama!

Michigan Leaning Towards Santorum? What?!?

As Michiganders search for the "right" GOP contender to face-off against President Barack Obama this coming November... home grown son, Mitt Romney, is facing an uphill battle. Even with the endorsement of newly elected Republican Governor Rick Snyder, Mitt Romney's support in his home state is mediocre––to say the least. 

Having been on-the-ground myself for the past few days, touring different cities throughout the Southwest Michigan region... I have not seen the level of enthusiasm for Romney that generally surrounds that of a front-runner.  And... with the state's primary election approximately a week away, on February 28th, a fever pitch of support for Romney's JUST.NOT.THERE!

With all the media hype that Romney is the only Republican to beat Obama is proving to be exactly what it is: a lame-stream-media-LIE.  

If I were to make a prediction, I would say the probability of Senator Rick Santorum winning all the marbles in the Michigan contest is extremely high.  And... that outcome would send shock waves to the GOP establishment and would put a Romney nomination in serious doubt.  (Remember, if Vice President Al Gore had won his home state of Tennessee in 2000, US history would have been a lot different).

It's safe to say that it will be almost impossible for Mitt Romney to beat Obama if he doesn't beat Santorum in his own house next Tuesday.
No... the way I see it, this GOP primary is wide-open.  Look out for Gingrich, Paul, and who knows... even Sarah Palin to overtake Romney by the time the big dance happens in Tampa this summer.  Right now, it's anybody's ball game.  

I'll be in the Wolverine State through Thursday... and will keep you posted via this blog.

UPDATE: Obama Forced To Back Down On Contraception/Abortion Mandate

UPDATE: President Obama has just lost a gamble that may have caused him the 2012 election.  [read blog post dated 2/6/2012] 

The only logical explanation to his recent contraception/abortion mandate was his hoping to woo women voters back to the seemingly disenfranchised, broken coalition which took him to the White House in 2008.  The problem for Obama is that by placing that bet––not realizing that the Catholic church and the religious right voters were holding all the Aces, Kings and Queens––he now is left with egg on his face... as he is left holding only two Jokers: liberal women voters and the lame stream media.

Gov. Romney: Cease with your character assassination!

If the only playbook/path to the oval office Presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney, has is character assassination of his fellow GOP rivals... then he needs to pack-up-his-tent and go home NOW.  Does he really think the die-hard supporters of those Republican candidates [Palin, Cain, Gingrich, Perry, Bachman, and Huntsman] that he, and his team, have maligned, attacked, smeared, and just out right desecrated, will enthusiastically go knock on doors and tell their family, and friends, to go vote for him this Fall?  I mean... REALLY... does he???  

After getting the stuffing kicked out of him in Missouri, Minnesota and Colorado during those State's recent caucuses, Romney has now set his sights on the new target: Senator Rick Santorum.

What? Does he not have a "track record" he can run on? Can he not articulate to the voting public his five-step or 10-step plan to turn this nation around... should he be elected?  Is his only game plan that of scorched-earth, leave no-man-standing tactics?  Well, as his favorable ratings continue plummeting, maybe he will realize that he's turning the masses off with that strategy.

In case his kitchen cabinet, political advisers haven't told him... the American people want to know what he will do to jump-start this economy? How he plans to massage the disgruntled business leaders... and also bring small business owners to the table to create some JOBS in America?  What is his position on Obamacare and what specifically he will do to repeal it––beginning day One!?!  

We in the heartland and bread-basket towns of this nation don't give a care about who Herman Cain supposedly 'hit on' or made a pass at, or whether Newt Gingrich got a check 15 years ago from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or Jimmy Sue or Timmy Lee either for that matter.  Tell us what you are going to do!!

Stop tearing other folks down and... call off his malignant Super-Pac.  For the next few months, he needs to spend this valuable time on the national stage telling the voters what HE will do to help us GET.THIS.NATION.BACK.ON.TRACK. PERIOD!!

So, to Governor Romney, if you want to be the big man in hopes of leading this great nation, then demonstrate that behavior in your political dealings. Cease with your character assassination!

Catholic Bishops Slam Obama Over Abortion/Birth Control... But Black Faith Leaders? *Crickets* !!!UPDATE!!!!!

Having already angered the Jews on his position to recognize a Palestinian state with borders reflecting pre-1948, and he is also on the 'outs' with Muslims––especially the leader of the Nation of Islam, Louis Farrakhan... now, President Barack Obama has really stepped in it BIG Time!  

Seems now that the Catholics are preparing to go to war against the President for his administration's new health care law requiring all employers, including religious institutions, to pay for birth control, sterilization and abortion drugs. 

There must be a strategy to this move.  So what is it? Is Obama wanting to lose this election in November on purpose?   Is he tired of the job?  Has he had enough of DC, and, maybe in his passive/aggressive-intentional way, he is really trying to piss off those coalitions who supported him in '08... so they won't re-elect him this Fall?  What other reason could there be for Obama implementing this provocative, mandatory law eight months before a major election, where his numbers are slipping––particularly among Independents and Blue-collar white voters, many of which are Catholics?  

But the bigger question that begs to be answered regarding this law is where are the Black faith leaders and what are their positions relative to this?  

It's a fact that Black church attendees are generally more socially and morally conservative than most.  Truth be told, African Americans are not big advocates of gay marriages.  Neither are we big proponents of abortions––even though abortion numbers have been going up in the Black community over the last decade.  But, by and large, Black girls keep their out-of-wedlock babies... even if grandmama has to help in the rearing of those children.

Reproduction issues are 'major' in the Catholic religion as well. So it cannot be a surprise to the Obama administration that the head of the American Catholic League, Bill Donohue, has thrown down the gauntlet, even coming out declaring war in the streets against President Obama:
“This is going to be fought out with lawsuits, with court decisions, and, dare I say it, maybe even in the streets,” Donohue said.
So now, the eyes of America now focus on where the Black pastors stand on this health care law controversy.  Will our leaders turn a blind eye and ear to one of the most serious, significant components of this new healthcare law or will they hold fast to a cornerstone  tenet of the Christian faith: the sanctity of life? *crickets* *crickets*

UPDATE: Catholics may cause an Obama retreat!

Hats Off To Romney: But It Ain't Over Yet!

The age old adage: "it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings" surely applies to the 2012 GOP primaries.  With four states having successfully completed the primary process, and 46 more states yet on deck...we still have a very long way to go. 

The magic number for any of the candidates to clinch the title as Republican front runner is 1,144 delegates.  Of the top three contenders Senator Rick Santorum, by winning Iowa has racked up 14, Speaker Newt Gingrich who soundly took South Carolina, amassed a total of 26, and Governor Mitt Romney, securing both Florida and New Hampshire has a delegate total of approximately 87.        See chart

Now... with only a measly 10% of the total electorate having voted... the media is calling for the candidates to "piss-on-the-fire-and-call-it-hunt" already?   NOT!  

These GOP boys are only four states into the game, and there is already talk by GOP pundits to  "quit and coalesce behind one candidate?" Give.Me.A.Break!

Mitt Romney, during his recent victory speech in Florida was dead-on-the-money with this quote:   "A competitive primary does not divide us, it prepares us, and we [GOP] will win".

Governor Mitt Romney
Well said Romney!  Indeed the nomination process thus far has been vitriolic and nasty––that's the nature of the sport.  But, if you boys can't handle the ruff-and-tumble of these brutal primaries... you really won't be able to stand the "Chicago street, 'Hood smack-down" that President Barack Obama is planning for the ultimate winner come Fall.  

As my old grandmama used to say: "...if you want to be tough, you must fall down a few times, get hurt, dust yourself off and get back in the game!"  

I say let the vetting stage continue and allow these contests to go onto Nevada next week and Super Tuesday next month––where approximately 400+ delegates are on the table for the taking.

So, "fat-lady", stay in your dressing room a little while longer. We'll call you when we're ready. But... it ain't over yet!

UPDATE:  Governor Mitt Romney makes the Occupy Wall Street's cause today one of the major talking points in the 2012 election.  Fresh off his win in Florida and during a Wednesday morning interview he made this comment:
“I’m not concerned about the very poor, we have a safety net there,” Mr Romney said, adding: “If it needs repair, I’ll fix it.”
 Uh...Governor... those kinds of incendiary comments will NOT help your effort in the Fall.  I need to tell the "fat lady" she can go a take a nap.  This is going to be a long, hot, summer!
