Now that Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has the “magic number” of delegates needed to be named the GOP candidate, Americans will be subjected to five months of red herring mudslinging and distractions from both him and President Barack Obama. Here’s where they stand on some of the top issues.
“Birther” is a term the mainstream media have put on those who question whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States and is, therefore, eligible to hold the office of President. How can anyone believe Obama was born anywhere but Hawaii?
With the promise of “Hope” and “Change,” celebrity friends, a good Internet campaign presence, an overall campaign presence that just felt so very underdog — so grassroots — and an aura of rolled-up-sleeve-sunglass-wearing-antithesis-of-politician coolness, Obama was able to gain favor with about 66 percent of the coveted 18-year-old to 29-year-old voter bloc.
Look no further than Republican Congressional aide Benjamin Rothenberg. On his Facebook page, Rothenberg took a gratuitous — and ungrammatical — swipe at an icon of the liberty movement, Lew Rockwell.
In an email sent to supporters this afternoon, Republican Presidential Ron Paul tells his supporters that he does not plan to campaign for primaries in States that have not yet voted.
The Administration of Barack Obama has made it pretty clear with a recent campaign website launch what it thinks the role of government is in Americans’ lives: Lifelong nanny. The initiative features a fictitious woman named Julia, whose life can be followed from the age of 3 to 67 by clicking through a number of slides.
You won’t hear this from the talking heads in the mainstream media, but the Ron Paul ground game is working as Paul tries to deny Romney the 1,144 delegates needed to win the nomination and force a brokered convention. It’s time to tell the GOP: no Paul, no vote.
Obama tells us that the Republican Party is the challenge because it is mired in the past. If by the past Obama means America’s wealth and greatness, then he is correct. If he is given another four years, America’s greatness will be lost and a superpower will be eviscerated.
Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul is gaining ground in his uphill battle to making his voice heard at the Republican National Convention despite being written off by the Party establishment. Last weekend in Nevada and in Maine, Paul’s ardent supporters were able to secure delegate blocs.
President Barack Obama feels emboldened. He’s sensing victory in November, so he’s beginning to telegraph the way “Forward.” Obama’s freshly revealed campaign slogan is a word with strong ties to Marxism and socialism.
