Nice Guys Finish Last
American Spectator, by R.J. Moeller

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/15/2014 5:11:43 AM

In watching both the recently released Netflix documentary Mitt, as well as NBC’s putting out to pasture of Jay Leno (again), I was struck by the current cultural attitudes toward those generally perceived as “nice” people. Apart from the hackneyed “If it bleeds, it leads” response you’ll get from most people when the topic of how we treat household names in the media comes up, there is a real (and I would add sick) pleasure Americans experience when nice guys finish last. We like jerks. And if someone isn’t a jerk, but we don’t like their politics or street-cred as a

The fact that Romney would have saved us from bankruptcy and would have saved our Republic was not so important as our prejudices. We can comfort ourselves with knowing that we stood on principle. We would not vote for someone we did not agree with on all points and who was not our choice..

I reject every conclusion of yours #1

Recent history proves that Romney would have saved us from bankruptcy is demonstrably false. He would have agreed with more spending and would have put up the same fight Mr. Boehner did. He would have made the same excuses. The debt would have continued to grow unabated with, at the most, token promises of reductions far down the road.

As is common with the Republican Establishment, you believe incorrectly that it is the duty of every conservative to show up and vote Republican no matter how much they dislike or do not trust the candidate. It is the candidates job to earn each and every vote he can get. If his policies are corrupted or he is found untrustworthy, it is the job of the voter NOT to reward that candidate with his vote. If the voter freely gives his vote away upon demand or without it representing that persons true interests, why should he or she have it in the first place?

You can plunge your head into the sands of denial along with the rest of the Republican Establishment, but it will not change past elections or those in the future. The blame is yours, not the voters.

One wonders where Moeller gets this stuff about us wanting jerks. He doesn´t speak for me or, I suspect, most of us. Most of us want our heroes (leaders) to be good people. We feel let down when they´re not.

Romney "lost" the campaign because the Obama side rigged the computers. I´ve heard several stories of people who voted Romney, only to see the voting machine select Obama.

This is why so many state legislatures and governorships went GOP while the top of the Dem ticket "won" the presidency. Vote fraud. Obama was a fraudulent president the first time and is a fraudulent president the second time.

I gather you didn´t vote in 2012, #2. And if so, that is why we are saddled with this pResident for a second term. Too many people took your attitude and didn´t vote. Voting for a 3rd or 4th party is a useless way of protesting the fact you don´t like either candidate, but it sure helped Obama.

Mitt lost not only because of the Excessive fraud on the left but also because he promised more work ..more jobs. Those LIVING OFF THE GOVERNMENT did NOT want to hear that they had to go back to WORK...so Mitt was NOT their choice. But Now......they are slaves to Obama.......how much more dull and stupid could these people get to purposely WANT to CONTINUE to be dependent on Obama and the government who, by the way, changes their minds on everything every day? Nevertheless, they have CHOSEN ...by their actions and their votes that they CHOOSE to be slaves instead of working for a living and instead of having freedom.

The Moderates are still sounding a lot like the Left (Bush´s fault) when they keep harping on blaming Conservatives for Romneys loss. Romney ran a lousy campaign and that is why he lost. Voter fraud and the media didn´t help matters either. Blaming Conservatives might make you feel good but it is a losing proposition. For every Conservative vote you push away, you must grab a vote from the Left, which means you will have to become even more Socialistic.

#2, if a large number of conservatives really stayed home rather than voting for Romney then they only made it easier for the left to think that conservatives are inconsequential. To date, it would seem that Obama, Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, Cantor, etc. certainly act like we are. Votes matter.

#3, look at Moeller´s picture. He´s probably talking about his cohort. I see it, too, among younger friends between 20 and 40. It´s reflexive with them, as shallow and predictable as a beatnik in a beach movie calling Frankie Avalon a square.

We can all cite a dozen cultural contributors, but suffice it to say that "adolescence" has been extended and encouraged ´til it´s become an adult lifestyle. And, yes, it even has its own political party.

Once again nothing but excuses from the Republican Establishment.

If voter fraud was the reason for Romney´s loss, it was Romney´s and the Republican Establishments DUTY to make sure the fraud was investigated and should not have conceded the election. By conceding victory to Obama, Romney and the rest of the Republican Establishment allowed voters to be disenfranchised with only a whimper in protest

If you cannot fight for an election you claim was stolen from you, why should anyone trust you to fight for anything other than your own interests?

#2 is right - we should have nominated Gingrich or Santorum and lost the House as well. Great idea.

As is the case with most people on this board, I learned as I grew up that the world did not revolve around me or my preoccupations, and that there are such things as larger duties. Waving my fist and petulantly insisting that reality conform to my preferences was, to say the least, soundly discouraged.

Please put aside the tea for the time being and pour yourself some Mylanta.

Mitt was such a nice guy that after he won the first debate he not only let him up off the canvas he then refused to fight to win. That was the real problem, he was nice to an Alinsky radical in the bizarre belief that would be a winning strategy. If Hilary gets the nomination and the Rs run a nice guy or one who, like John McCain, has a higher value for reaching across the aisle than pointing out the house is on fire, there is no hope.

In my humble opinion, it matters not for whom we vote. The last 70 or so years have brought us to a place where we are manipulated and placated with false statements, and elections are stolen, by hook or by crook. We have been so dumbed down by lies and misinformation and very slanted education, that vast numbers of us don´t know and don´t care. Those of us who do know and care cannot fight against those few in power who have set everything up to their advantage. Even law and justice are on their side. For me that leaves God as the only one who can fight them and win. In Him is law and justice beyond reproach. I have put my trust in Him.

Yet the excuses continue while no responsibility or corrective action is taken.

Well done!

Chide me all you want, the reality is that the Republican Party´s current leadership supported by people who refuse to take responsibility for its failure will ultimately lead to it further decline.

I agree with #1 and #2.

Does anyone doubt that a President Romney would not have, in a fair and sane world, brought to the table the smarts, the morality and the untiring will to correct our self-imposed decline? That he would be successful?

Does anyone also doubt that he would have been confronted with a wall of hatred, lies and invective from all the organs of the left, led by an outraged media on a scale that has never been seen before?

Where else does the left have to go? Actual assassination as opposed to the media character assassination usually doled out to conservatives? They would make their vilification of GWB and Nixon look like a make-nice kids party.

So yes, Romney would have tried to stick handle his way through, trying to accomplish something of value while giving ground to the left. That´s how it´s been done in the past, but we are now almost pushed right into the left wall.

Barbara Walters is a broadcasting doyenne, interviewer of greats, shatterer of glass ceilings. But the daily screechfest of The View is not the best vehicle for her with which to say goodbye. The audience was still cheering reverently for Barbara Walters on Tuesday’s edition of The View, the day after her announcement that May 16 would mark her final day presenting the ABC morning show. Her hair its usual whipped and spun golden halo, Walters came out of the wings, gingerly high-fived some folk in the audience, before her fellow host Whoopi Goldberg reminded us of her momentous imminent farewell

GOP lawmakers believe over
$1 billion spent to promote Obamacare
Washington Examiner [DC], by Susan Crabtree    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/9/2014 5:43:12 AM     Post Reply
Republicans are demanding greater transparency on how much the administration spent to promote and implement Obamacare — and hitting back at President Obama´s claim that he “didn´t make a hard sell.” The new effort comes after Obama´s claim that the administration met its goal of enrolling more than 7 million people without spending billions. “We didn´t make a hard sell,” Obama said. “We didn´t have billions of dollars to spend on commercials like our critics did.” But both Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill estimate the administration has spent roughly $4 to 5 billion to get the Affordable Care Act running, including hundreds

Despite the Obama administration´s insistence that everyone -- the government, insurance companies, doctors, medical providers, and consumers -- will reap benefits from Obamacare, a recent grant proposal by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) suggests that the agency does have concerns about the ongoing financial viability of one player in the health care market: so-called family planning centers. HHS intends to spend up to $800,000 to fund studies to "conduct data analysis and related research and evaluation on the impact of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) on Title X funded family planning centers."

This is a bad morning.

The article went on to say that the Pentagon realized that this would be an inadequate force for even very small wars and certainly would not allow the U.S. to police the world and keep control of contingencies like a North Korean attack on the South or a Chinese

But, again, why did he say it? Two theories: 1) He’s running in 2016 and thinks he can compensate for giving amnesty to all the illegal border crossers (mainly from Mexico) by cracking down and even deporting visa-overstayers (who aren’t so much from Latin America).(Snip)2) He’s not running, but he’s making space for Marco Rubio.

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws.
