Binders, Big Bird and Bimbos

With nothing left but small-ball, the democrats are reduced to whimpering about petty things in the hopes their sycophantic followers will rally support. The latest is the debate in Indiana where the Republican candidate for US Senate, Richard Mourdock said, “”I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen,” Clumsy at best Mr. Mourdock explained later, “I think that God can see beauty in every life. Certainly, I did not intend to suggest that God wants rape, that God pushes people to rape, that God wants to support or condone evil in any way.

“I spoke from my heart. And speaking from my heart, speaking from the deepest level of my faith, I would not apologize, I would be less than faithful if I said anything other than life is precious, I believe it’s a gift from God.”

Okay, not everyone will defend the idea of not allowing an abortion in the case of Rape, but his sentiment that God loves all children, even those whose father is evil,  is a statement of his faith, and not a dictate in governance.

But this is where the Democrats find themselves, having to rest your electoral hopes on such statements/misstatements and invented controversies.

I’ll bite, I disagree with the straw man created from Mr. Mourdock’s statement; I won’t support anyone that believes that God intended Rape. There, happy?

Now back to the actual election, Big Bird is plenty rich without taxpayer money, applications for employment are kept in binders, and there are no bimbos in Mitt Romney’s past so Gloria Allred is a waste of bandwidth.  AND the Democrats have given no one a reason to support them.

Only my opinion,

As Ohio goes, so goes the Nation.

I’ve been saying for months that when Ohio falls into the Romney camp there will be a flood of other states that will follow. Ohio has been a tough nut for Romney to crack; a victim of Republican success. Ohio’s Governor John Kasich has helped bring the Buckeye state back to the road to prosperity, so the perception of Ohioans is that the country is improving and there is no reason to change leadership at the top (Obama).

Recently, Governor Kasich was interviewed by Hugh Hewitt and at the end of the interview Hewitt asked Kasich of the probability of Ohio going Romney. The Governor’s answer was not encouraging stating simply that Ohio will be a tough win for Romney. Doubtless Kasich has internal polling that indicates a GOTV problem for Romney.

I still believe a Romney win is inevitable, but see very few mathematics possibilities without Ohio. However with Ohio in Romney’s camp, the Electoral count for the Republican will be in the 330 Range. As Ohio goes so goes Iowa, Wisconsin, Colorado, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

Just my opinion.
