Condoleezza Rice: To VP, or Not to VP?

For any of you who missed Friday’s reporting of the Romney VP whisperings, Condoleezza Rice, the former Secretary of State under the Bush Administration, could potentially be at the front of the pack. We can all imagine how exhausting, yet important, the VP Candidate vetting process is for the Romney Campaign. Even before Romney reaches out to discuss moving to our Nation’s Capital for the next four years in the very first conversation with a potential VP Candidate, the team will have spent countless hours debating, analyzing and postulating reaction to all different kinds of politicians–from the well established politician to the freshly minted Tea Party favorites.

The Vice President of the United States is an unusual, often times even undesired, political position. You are second in command to the greatest Super Power in the World, but you have little control over the administration’s (which by the way carries your name) direction in the event that you and your boss differ on any particular policy. And from the other perspective, you are responsible for standing behind the administration–and specifically the President’s politics–for better or worse. Continue reading

Hyperbole: Jim Byrd’s Prescription for Sanity

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and the Curious Case of Evolution

Jim Byrd, a conservative political contributor for Examiner.com, published an article on January 30, 2012 that satisfied my political apprehension for the day. Mr. Byrd very eloquently reminded readers that sometimes it is better to fight liberalism with unrelenting humor and hyperbole than to try to fight fire with fire.

In the case of Debbie Wasserman Shultz–just generally, I am often left either speechless or loud-spoken when watching her network news interviews. I either clench my fists and cry a little inside or rant and rave at the television with no affect but to annoy my girlfriend.

Upon reading Jim Byrd’s article, “Debbie Wasserman Shultz, and the Curious Case of Evolution,” (Byrd,) I was set at ease and felt encouraged to thank Mr. Byrd accordingly. Here is my comment on the article’s webpage:

Jim, I really enjoyed your article. Sometimes a little sarcasm and good-natured humor is the only way to keep from going crazy. As I imagine many of your readers similarly experience, I cannot keep my teeth from grinding, my fists from clenching, and my stoic indifference at bay when watching a Debbie Wasserman Shultz interview–talking points and all. I usually end up yelling some objection at the television in protest–to no effect but to annoy my girlfriend. Thank you for prescribing the remedy: good ol’ fashioned hyperbole.

On the eve of what is going to be one of the upcoming 2012 Presidential Race likely to be plagued by accusatory and negative political rhetorical from all political perspectives, I often wonder how certain Congressmen and Women get away with, if not untrue, certainly contrived and deceitful talking points. One particular Congresswomen sticks out in my mind as a habitual violator of what one would consider trustworthy politicking. That would of course be Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the U.S. Representative for Florida’s 20th congressional district, serving since 2005 and the Democratic National Committee Chairwomen. She is the congressional cheerleader for Democratic policies, liberal and humanitarian Utopianism (see Mark Levin’s “Ameritopia”), and most prominently Presidential Incumbent, Barack Obama.

Say goodbye to the Mob Mentality, Justice and the Liberal Political Machine

Ladies and Gentlemen, a gross and unspeakable crime is being conducted against the American People day in and day out. Many contemporary journalists dance around proverbial ‘ethical boundaries’ by writing to stir emotion without empirical support for the purpose of fullfilling an Agenda. It is fair to say that accusations can be directed toward both sides of the political arena.

But recently our ex-Washington Post writers over at POLITICO have danced well over the line into the blatantly reckless, un-American, garbage spewing standard that we measure the worst of the liberal elite (i.e. Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, all of MSNBC, and that Morning Joe closet liberal guy that makes my ears bleed when I switch the channel in the morning during a Squawkbox commercial break.)

This unspeakable crime is a technique utilized by the Politicos and Liberal Elite to go beyond biased finger-pointing and name calling by utilizing what most Americans consider to be ‘the Media’ to stir up popular consensus often without legitimate support (evidence), due-process, or even considerable thought.
