Candidates Face the Nation”Tit-for-Tat” Presidential Rat Race (White House Tour) (Mickey Mouse in the White House) Iron hand of Obamacare law of the land (Political Satire)
“Tit-for-Tat” Presidential Rat Race
Since the 2004 great debate how will you rate each candidate? Some people felt that Bush was a pain in the tush while others viewed Kerry as more astute and quite merry. John Kerry got whipped by George Bush because he flopped and flipped. Then along came John McCain who tried to beat Obama the charmer, but it was too late for the lame duck candidate.
We’re still in the same old political game of power, fame and blame, but this time around it’s Tea Party Express to the rescue and probably Sarah Palin’s “2012″ presidential campaign. Will the lady give up her big bucks and political views on Fox News?
Palin is salin’ with her new Alaska documentary series on TLC bringing in 5 million viewers. Sarah is a smart cookie. She knows the American people will get hooked on her latest family values book, “America by Heart.” She’s pitchin’ for millions.
The GOP wants Palin to run for President, but the Tea Party hopes she’ll be Chairwoman of the Republican National Committee. In the meantime Michael Steele wheels and deals hoping to keep his RNC seat. The controversial Steele is voted out and Wisconsin’s state party chairman, Reince Priebus is in like Flynn. Priebus’ new leadership will lead the RNC to victory. Priebus reels in $3.5 million first two weeks as RNC’s new chairman repairing donor relationships that fell apart at the seams under Michael Steele.
There’s always a new twist in politics. Ex-RNC Chief Michael Steele kicks off a neat deal as an MSNBC analyst.
Former President George H.W. Bush is not sure what the tea party stands for. Barbara Bush’s remarks were somewhat cruel by stating “Thought Palin was beautiful and thinks she’s very happy in Alaska and should stay there.”
Sarah Palin cancels the Alaska TV series so it does not conflict with her possible run for the presidency. Maybe Palin’s views have boost Fox News, but her approval rating as a presidential candidate seem to be fading.
Palin is visiting Israel and India to improve America’s future relationship which hinge upon her running for the presidency. She’s not happy actress Julianne Moore is portraying her in an HBO movie “Game Change.”
According to new voter polls for the “2012″ presidential election Obama’s charm has bombed. His legacy will be the end of America’s democracy. Vote to end government bureaucracy. ObamaCare has turned into ObamaScare. Beware! “2012″ budget is the year that Obama intends to spend millions of dollars from your tax money for 1,054 IRS agents to enforce health care. Obama says he’s flexible on the health care bill while millions of Americans are not thrilled.
Federal Judge Vinson of Florida rules the individual mandate is unconstitutional. Judge Vinson remarks on Senator Obama’s “2008″ campaign that health care reform would not include an individual mandate. President Obama feels health care should not be repealed. The battle has just begun in Washington. By 47-51 votes Senate Democrats defeated Republicans. Federal judge’s decision will probably head to the United States Supreme Court for review on whether or not the health care bill is unconstitutional. The GOP intends to stop health care funding. They feel the health care bill in the spring of “2013″ will be repealed. Obama appeals Judge Vinson’s ruling that the government does not have authority to mandate that people purchase health care insurance policies.
In light of the Tucson, Arizona shootings and President Obama’s speech to victims and heroes of this terrible tragedy, his overall approval rating has reached its highest peak.
The President’s “State of the Union” speech is a repeat. It seems to be the same old stuff. Nothing new – Nothing much.
Bachman Rocks! Political Fashionista Michele Bachmann, Minnesota congresswoman and founder of the Tea Party Caucus who is considering running for the “2012″ presidency lashes out on Obama’s speech and weak policies. Bachmann is also against First Lady, Michelle Obama’s ideas on obesity. The lovely congresswoman will decide this summer on whether or not she’ll toss her hat into the ring.
Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin gives his official GOP statement and budgetary guidelines to privatizing Medicare and Social Security. Ryan seems to be flyin’ high with his raging change for Medicare and Medicaid.
GOP will likely support former Gov. Mike Huckabee from the great State of Arkansas as their “2012″ presidential candidate, but Huck says he’s not running. Money is one issue and the other is Huckabee not willing to give up his show on Fox. Get hooked on Mike’s new book. He tells it all in “A Simple Government” on the best seller’s list. Huckabee talks about all kinds of political issues including Obama’s health care and how it will fail miserably.
Newt Gingrich throws his hat into the ring for another shot at the presidency. Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney set up exploratory committees for their decision to run for the GOP.
Libertarian Ron Paul who stands tall got attacked at CPAC by Donald Trump who said he would be the least likely candidate to win the “2012″ presidency. Texas Congressman Ron Paul and Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana emerged as the only straw poll CPAC winners although the GOP is not likely to select either gentlemen for the presidency.
Donald Trump says he will be running as a conservative Republican for the presidency. Rep. Allen West, a billionaire real estate magnate who organized the South Florida Tea Party would like to be Trump’s VP. Donald the fair-haired billionaire is announcing his decision when flowers bloom in June. This “big wig” signed up for an early mornin’ “Fox” news gig.
Trump shows his official birth certificate in light of the media controversy stating it was “invalid.” Why can’t Obama do the same thing? The Donald is investigating President Obama’s official birthplace in Hawaii. Trump says Obama is definitely the worst President in U.S. history. Move over Obama – Here comes Donald the blonde charmer. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld cancels Trump’s appearance for a benefit due to his criticism of Obama’s birth certificate questioning whether or not the President was born in this country. Donald Trump also offended Robert DeNiro and Rosie O’Donnell with his poorly-conceived focus on Obama’s birth certificate and schooling.
White House adviser David Plouffe says Donald Trump’s pursuit of the President’s birth certificate is a just a bunch of ranting antics. Trump has no chance of winning the presidency. American people are focused on the economy and our nation’s security.
Donald Trump mocks with racist remarks about Barack Obama’s Ivy League schooling while Obama releases his long-form live birth certificate publicly. Trump takes full credit for Obama showing his birth certificate on national TV and the Internet.

Highly-decorated, but never receiving Purple Heart accused 38-year-old U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales married with two kids having previously served in Iraq was seen Sunday, March 11th by military officials drinking on Southern Afghanistan base crept away overnight from the military compound going on shooting spree in Kandahar villages killing and wounding 17 civilians of which nine were children, setting them on fire while they were sleeping. Eleven belonged to one family.
Accused Staff Sgt. Robert Bales arrives stateside on Saturday, March 17th at the United States Military Penitentiary Fort Leavenworth, Kansas and placed in an isolated cell. His attorney John Henry Browne of Seattle said he did not know if his client had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder at time of shootings, but could be an issue at trial if experts find it relevant. The man went through hell injured twice in Iraq, once losing part of his foot obviously took a toll on the soldier. Robert Bales remembered by classmates as “Bobby” the football player and neighbors from suburban Cincinnati, Ohio as a guy who was “happy-go-lucky.” He took care of “special needs” children and was a watchdog for neighborhood troublemakers. Court records show the 10-year veteran had many commendations for good conduct after four years in Iraq and Afghanistan. Wife Karilyn says he joined the Army after struggling with many financial blows which included a Florida investment job that went sour, Seattle home condemned, hardship making payments on another and about a year ago Bale’s failure to get a military promotion or a transfer. His legal troubles include charges that he assaulted a girlfriend which he pleaded “guilty” and took anger management counseling, a hit-and run accident when he ran bleeding in military clothing into the woods, but told police “I fell asleep at the wheel” shows Bales just paid a fine to have charges dismissed. In March, 1998 Bales was given a $65 citation for possessing alcohol in Daytona Beach, Fla. and he did not pay the fine an arrest warrant was issued for his arrest, but it expired. In 2008 another incident arose involving alcohol of each person to the point of mumbling, slurring of speech then alleging Bales’s violence when he thrust a woman’s hand to his crotch and fought with her boyfriend outside a Tacoma, Washington bowling alley. Deputy described Bales as “extremely intoxicated.” Bales was also arrested in 2002 for a drunken assault on a security guard at a Tacoma casino, but that charge was dismissed after he completed 20 hours of anger management training. More court documents show Bales owes $1.5 million from arbitration ruling a decade ago finding him “guilty” of securities fraud stemming from a complaint by Columbus, Ohio couple that Bales defrauded them while working as their stockbroker in 2003. Soon thereafter Bales enlisted in the Army.
Former platoon leader says Bales was a “model soldier” inspired by 9/11 and in just two months after the attack, Bales enlisted to serve his country. He saved many lives in firefights on three Iraq deployments while Army Capt. Chris Alexander says charges against Bales killing and burning many civilians in Afghanistan is out of character for him.
Accused U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales says he has “loss of memory” killing, burning and wounding 17 Afghan civilians. His attorney, John Henry Browne will plea “diminished capacity.”

Robert Bales with 17 counts of premeditated murder plus other charges, including attempted murder in connection with the burnings, killings and wounding of Kandahar villagers. Robert Bales could receive s life sentence or death penalty.
Bales’ wife and two children secluded on Army military base at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington. Karilyn Bales, her family and Robert Bales family are truly sad over this tragedy have extended their heartfelt sympathy to members of Afghan assassinated civilians. With the support of Bales’ wife and extended members of his family “Staff Sgt. Robert Bales Defense Fund” was set up regarding March 11th Afghan massacre. Bales’ wife says she can’t believe her husband would ever do such a thing.
