I’ve been reading a lot of analysis from Monday’s GOP debate and researching the ever growing field of candidates in the day plus since it concluded and one thing stuck out for me more than anything else. God must be hedging his bets.
Why you may ask?
Well if you listen to at least 3 of the candidates (Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, and Michele Bachmann), they are all running because God has told them to run for the highest office in the land in one way or another. Apparently a 4th candidate, Mike Huckabee, was told by God not to run so I guess he does have some standards.
So with God backing 3 different candidates, who will win? And why would he feel the need to back so many? If God really felt someone was the right person for the job wouldn’t he just go all biblical on the election and make it happen? He apparently steps in all the time in sports (still wondering why he isn’t a Browns fan), so why would one not expect him to do so in the hugely more important political arena?
One of only 14 remaining airworthy Boeing B17’s known to exist crashed this morning in a corn field in Illinois. The restored “Liberty Belle” crashed shortly after take off on a scheduled flight to Indianapolis and luckily all 7 aboard were able to walk away. Unfortunately the same can not be said for the historic WWII bomber affectionately know as the “Flying Fortress”.
All of Newt Gingrich’s Iowa staff as well as many of his staff in other key early primary states have all resigned today signaling that they finally have had to admit what most have known from the start. Gingrich has no chance especially after pissing off tea bagger’s when he said Paul Ryan’s Medicare dismantling was “social engineering”.
Of course Gingrich, ever clueless, still plans to carry on.
I am committed to running the substantive, solutions-oriented campaign I set out to run earlier this spring. The campaign begins anew Sunday in Los Angeles.
So where exactly are all those jobs that were promised by both parties last election? Oh and jobs generated by inexpensive, unhealthy, but all we can afford because we’re all broke fast food joints don’t count…
