In defense…of Newt

Summary: The debates are clearly showing that the Republican public is turning towards Newt. The timing of the interview with his ex-wife will also support him because republican candidates will always win a battle against the media. Quite honestly, as long as his sexual relationships are legal, it should be a non-issue or at least one un-deserving of such vast attention.

Summary: Hermain Cain isn’t the only black person not on welfare! Some republican candidates still express serious stereotypes about black people that will hurt them in a general election

Mitt’s win good for Mormons

Mitt’s Iowa win should put many supporters of other candidates on notice who have trashed him for being Mormon and thus unelectable. Though an Iowa win doesn’t guarantee a nomination (though Clinton County apparently does), candidates should go forward focused on what they are for as opposed to what they’re against.

I was thinking last night of all the top stories of 2011 and decided, why not have some fun and write another rap! I wrote this! Happy new year!

Newt! Come Clean!

All this back and forth about Gingrich’s past marriages is really making him look very arrogant, which never goes over well with voters, especially conservative ones.

Cain should not have responded to affair allegation

Herman Cain made a key mistake in responding to allegations by Ms. White of an affair. This is different from the issue of sexual harassment. This is a private matter between him, his wife, and Ms. White. To respond to this issue basically will lead potential voters to groups this issue with the issue of sexual harassment and that will lead more people to not trust him. He needs to focus more on the issues because he has not brought anything substantive to the political debate since his 9-9-9 plan.

Bachmann vs. Palin: no comparison

Outside of the fact that they are both women and are both prone to many gaffes, it does not make sense to keep comparing these two women. For example, Michelle Bachmann seems to have no problems talking about issues of race, whether she’s completely on or off. Most republicans including Palin will just invoke Dr. King’s dream in talking about race. Bachman makes comments like “President Obama failed black America.” That’s bold, especially for a party that has little black support. Furthermore, whereas Palin condemned liberal media and only talked to conservative media after several embarrassing interviews, Bachman will talk to anyone who will listen. You will see her on CNN, MSNBC, etc. Though they also share similar political views, these are two very different women who shouldn’t continually be compared simply because they are women.
