Dear Readers: Looking around at the reviews for the South Carolina foreign policy debate (e.g, The Other McCain), I can’t help but admit to having reached a level of serenity and acceptance. I think I have completed the Kubler Ross Cycle:
My beloved Horemheb is a Romney supporter: I find I cannot be in despair if Romney gets the nomination. Perhaps it is because I am in the final stage of the Kubler Ross Cycle of Grief — acceptance.
I never detested Romney, and can’t bring myself to do so now. He was fully vetted in 2008, and the main flaw found was his flip-flopping technocrat leadership style. Given what we have in Obama, who fully ignores the precepts of our constitutional republic, even this would be a vast improvement. Except for Bachmann, I really don’t bear hard feelings toward any of the Republican candidates. In fact, I am mildly entertained how Newt is trying to court Palinistas. But that does not mean that we should not rattle cages, hold feet to fires, and make our concerns known. The harder YOU make the GOP candidate work for the nomination, the better the result will be.
Vote for the person who is the best match for your views, and work like a dog to get solid congressional representation in 2012 — and don’t forget focusing on key local elections. Start now by getting to know the races; for example, Legal Insurrection is featuring an important Indiana race.
MUT NOTE: Based on the comments, I want to highlight what is being “accepted”. It is not Romney I accept. Rather, this is a call to let go of undeserved anger toward specific candidates and a halt to insulting supporters of these nomination hopefuls. It is an acceptance that these are our choices, so we must make the most of the situation. VOTE FOR WHOM YOU WILL. BUT, let go of the anger, and make the most of the choices we have.
I hear a lot of concern over some current poll numbers related to the General Election. The best advice I can give is:Recover your courage, then prove your wisdom!
While we and the GOP candidates are working, Obama is on another
vacation leadership tour. The Once, job killer extraordinaire, just said the US got lazy in attracting businesses! He made the comments at a CEO summit as part of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference Saturday. After his insults of both French President Sarkozy and Israeli Premier Netanyahu at the G-20 summit this past week, Obama should no longer be allowed to attend conferences with other world leaders: It is demeaning to them and embarrassing to us.
I find it hard to hold anyone in more contempt that he and his wife, who has a $15,000 a day make-up artist!
A big thanks to Tammy Bruce for her retweet of my TB rant. She has a link to a wonderful pictorial essay on War Dogs that is a must-see.
Thanks to Anna’s Clue Tank for the link, and a reminder of one of my favorite movie classics — Masque of the Red Death. That is a horror movie classic with Vincent Price. Hilariously, the post is entitled: MASQUE OF ZUCCOTTI!
The post title is a quote from that movie.
Finally, a thank you to B-daddy for the link and his great post: The Weakness of the Occupy Protest Model.
