ABC News Attack On Newt Gingrich Just Didn’t Work

(BrightCitizen.com) ABC News strategically aired an interview they did with Newt Gingrich’s second wife in hopes of taking down the former congressman a day before a big vote in South Carolina.  Many think that taking Gingrich our of the race will increase Obama’s chances of winning if it is just a battle of the apparently ‘boring’ candidates Obama and Romney for president this year.

Of course, most people can read the motivation of interview.  Again, this is an example of ABC News trying to influence the presidential GOP race.  A great way to show ABC what you think is by not watching their programs or visiting their website.  Fewer views equal less advertising funds from companies.

How did people take this underhanded attack?  One commenter on a news site said,

“I don’t care what Newt did the last 12 years of his life.  As long as he can fix what the current occupant of the Whitehouse did the last 3.5 years.   Enough of Obama”

Rick Santorum Defeats Mitt Romney In Iowa US Presidential Primary

It’s official. Congratulations to Rick Santorum for beating Mitt Romney in the Iowa US Presidential.  Read more here.

Oops! Turns out Rick Santorum beat Mitt Romney in Iowa. Does it matter?

A new vote tally shows Rick Santorum won the Iowa caucuses by 34 votes over runner-up Mitt Romney. But aside from bragging rights, the shift in results is unlikely to affect the GOP race.

Now probably time for Mr. Santorum to retire and get behind Newt Gingrich.  Mitt Romney is just not good enough.

Jon Huntsman Withdraws From The US GOP Presidential Race, Why Did He Bother?

(BrightCitizen.com)  Jon Huntsman Withdraws From The US GOP Presidential Race, but does it really matter?  He decided to endorse Mitt Romney as the most electable to beat Barak Obama on the democratic party side.  Is anyone surprised?

Why was Jon Huntsman even running for President?  Was it really to win, or was it for some other reason?  Clearly he was never a serious contender to anyone but the left-wing media outlets.  He didn’t seriously campaign in Iowa but focused on New Hampshire.  A bit strange strategy for anyone following politics.  Why did he run? Being the son a rich industrialist in Utah, Huntsman has no money issues personally.  Some of the reasons why Huntsman may have run is to-

  • Somehow make the Mormon based candidates more easily acceptable to the majority of evangelical Christians in the US by being a second Mormon candidate to run.
  • Get his name in the hat for future runs at political office and build name recognition for himself.
  • To somehow get himself in a position to be selected as VP candidate or some other position in a new Republican administration

With time, we’ll get a better idea of why Jon Huntsman even bothered to run for President.  He never really had a chance.  Besides that, we’ll never forget his nerdy answer to what he would take to the Whitehouse if he were elected President.  While other candidates were talking about their wives, Jon Huntsman replied, “I would take my Harley Davidson”.

What Is Former US President Jimmy Carter Thinking?

(BrightCitizen.com)  Clearly many people see Jimmy Carter as America’s worst president.  That is reflected in his polling numbers as president and failure to get re-elected.  Despite his poor performance as a whole, he was a frequent critic of US President George Bush II and has constantly been vocally expressing his opinion on the media stage.

Now Carter is involved in Egyptian politics as you can see in a video here.  Do we really need former US president’s involved in the politics of other countries?  Is this what former are President’s supposed to do?

It is noble to want to help other countries, but as his positions don’t seem to reflect the feelings of the American people in general, we wonder when we will be free of this former President.

Obama Starts To Really Go To Church- Well, At Least Get Involved In Their Affairs

(BrightCitizen.com)  Many conservatives are convinced that Barak Obama is America’s worst president.  Based on approval rating among democrats and republicans, this may be true.  Hollywood personalities with their mixed up lives and efforts to buck society in general tends to love democratic politicians. However, even Matt Damon’s support for Barak Obama has gone down the tube.

Barak recognized it and did the unpresidential thing of responding to Damon’s comments on him by criticizing his acting in a recent movie at last year’s press correspondents dinner.

For some reason, Obama doesn’t mind seeing the US dwindle in power and influence in the world.  However, he does want to control people in what many call a move towards socialism or event communism.

Recently, the Department of Justice under Obama tried to tell a church that they had no right to dismiss ministers that did not follow their beliefs.  The supreme court responded directly and succinctly addressing this hypocrisy

But, Chief Justice Roberts pushed back hard, telling the government essentially to butt out:

“Requiring a church to accept or retain an unwanted minister, or punishing a church for failing to do so, intrudes upon more than a mere employment decision. Such action interferes with the internal governance of the church, depriving the church of control over the selection of those who will personify its beliefs. By imposing an unwanted minister, the state infringes the free exercise clause, which protects a religious group’s right to shape its own faith and mission through its appointments. According the state the power to determine which individuals will minister to the faithful also violates the establishment clause, which prohibits government involvement in such ecclesiastical decisions.”

One wonders why Obama could be such a weakling when it comes to world influence and international relations that affects the success of US business to a tyrant on trying to tell a church how they should hire.

Talk About Clueless Government, Iran Needs A Competent PR Firm

(BrightCitizen.com)  If you follow international news, you are probably amazed at the bumbling Iranian government.  Clearly the US under Barak Obama missed an opportunity to support it’s people that apparently voted their tyrannical ‘president’ down only to be subjected to a harsh crackdown by their police.  This was all despite thousands protesting doctored election results in July 2009.  Protests were met by the Basij paramilitary police chasing, beating, and killing their own unarmed countrymen.

If you don’t deal with a problem, it will likely come back.  Here comes the Iranian military running around in boats with handguns and short-barrelled rifles pointed around the boats.  Who are they going to scare?  Yes, they do have missiles and have threatened to nuke Israel.  Someone has to deal with the problem.
