Let's All Take A Deep Breath - (my first vanity post)
Pulled it outta my... um..... Obama | 11-02-11 | Self

Posted on 11/02/2011 5:05:00 PM PDT by BagCamAddict

I encourage everyone to take a deep breath, and let the campaign chips fall where they may for a couple weeks, without passing judgement. We are watching political ping-pong right now.

We don't have facts on either side yet. Cain has been accused. Perry is now being accused by Cain. Romney is now being accused by Perry. Will Romney turn around and accuse Bachmann or Santorum?

Time will bring everything out in the open that we need to know. We are all guilty of jumping to conclusions without any facts. The media is playing us, and we are letting them.

It has only been 3 days since the Cain story first broke. Let's give it 2-3 weeks for all the players to air their dirty laundry before we come to any conclusions.

Can we do that? Why the rush to judgement? Is the election tomorrow? Nope. So let's let all the candidates muddle through this, while we sit back and watch. Let's be thoughtful and measured in our judgement, as we live in our glass houses. Isn't that what Jesus would do? :-)

Never posted a vanity thread before, but I'm saddened to watch FReepers tear each other's throats out and judge various candidates on the slightest of mis-steps. How about a little forgiveness and patience, to see how it all plays out in the next few weeks?

POTUS is a figurehead.

Unless the POTUS has the support of the big money backers that control Congress, he/she is a fart in the wind. Might as well get some golfing in....

The whole thing makes the Republican candidates look like a giant joke. Hussein and the media are no doubt loving this. Cain and his people are novices and are not ready for the big leagues, Perry can’t communicate without bumbling around and sounding silly, Romney is a polished politician but such a flip flopping RINO that I can’t support him, Bachmann comes across as unpresidential, Ron Paul is a kook, etc. I think I might have to roll the dice, throw my support behind Newt and hope for the best. I don’t think he can stay focused and his current wife is a flake, but at this point I don’t see much alternative.

I can understand why you, as an ardent Cain supporter, wouldn’t want anyone to pass judgment on his tap dancing or finger pointing right now, and hope it will all go away.

No, he'd blame Perry, his main opponent right now. Bachmann and Santorum take votes away from Cain (or Perry), not Romney, so Mitt wants them in the race and doing well.

Flame away.... but I'm going to reserve judgment on all of the accused parties until there is more information -- credible information.

Definitely. There's enough rumor mongering going on. No point in adding to it.

Romney's a RINO, Perry can't debate or speak coherently, Bachmann has empty eyes, Newt's gone over to the dark side and a marriage nightmare, Paul is nuts, Cain's an amateur and soon to be gone, and Sarah is tracking a wounded moose somewhere in the bush!

No thanks. I was hoping for a brilliant, courageous Conservative nominee with a Conservative core who lived by Conservative principles. I guess it was just too much to ask for. A truly pathetic bunch of amateurs!

Your no fun at all.

Has no one taken a moment to give you some remedial grammar? "Your" is a possessive pronoun. Use it to indicate ownership; as in, "What is your major malfunction?"

Use "you're" when you mean to say, "you are" As in, "You're going to thank me later."

I figured I didn’t write it clearly enough. I don’t want us to not defend Cain. I simply want us to not crucify Cain before we know any facts. That’s what I meant about taking a deep breath and being slower to pass judgment. Don’t judge Cain until we know the facts. Don't judge Perry either until we know the facts. Don’t get angry with fellow FReepers based on media innuendo — on either side.

None of us knows who leaked this story. None of us knows what was in the settlement agreement, and that’s the way it should be - and stay.

I believe Cain. But even if I didn’t, we don’t have any facts. We need to stop calling him (everyone) guilty without facts. That’s all.

We who inhabit FR need to reflect on what has been happing with us lately. We have those who post here who are constantly looking for a way to divide us.

We are approaching the most important election in my lifetime and we should not let the deceivers who intend to destroy this nation succeed.

Thank you, my FRiend.

Newt is on the wrong team. He is the smartest in the race, but his actions (supporting AGW etc) have indicated he has sold out to the Globalist elitists. He cannot be trusted with power.

Remember, these types of elections have on occasions been decided in the Convention. None of the announced. It has happened.

Actually, I’m undecided. Cain or Gingrich.

But I want to let the whole process play out and have ALL candidates vetted properly.

If they can’t handle 1 year in the fire on the campaign trail, then they can’t handle 4 years in the White House.

Yes, I have that concern with Newt. Everything from his support for "combating AGW" with Pelosi and that ridiculous couch ad, to his recent mindboggling stupid attack on the Paul Ryan budget (which virtually every House Republican had just courageously voted for) that he called "right wing social engineering". Newt is very smart, but seems incapable of staying focused.

Problem is, I can not generate even the slightest bit of excitement for anyone else in the race. Mitt can't be trusted on anything, Perry has so far been unable to communicate coherently, I don't think Cain is anywhere near ready to run a serious presidential campaign, Bachmann just doesn't come off well, Santorum lost his home state by 18 points in his last election, Ron Paul is a kook, Huntsman should be running in the Democratic primary, etc. I almost feel like Newt, even with all his flaws, is the only real option at the moment.

Remember, these types of elections have on occasions been decided in the Convention. None of the announced. It has happened.

Yeah, I don't buy it. One of these candidates currently in the race will emerge and win. If you are thinking Palin or someone is going to ride in and win a brokered convention, well, I think your dreaming. Like it or not, these are our candidates.

There has not been a brokered selection since the modern communications age, but it has happened. If the Republican Party nominates Mitt, it is finished. Might as well drive the last nail in the coffin. Would the "leadership" care? I am not sure. It would however be an immediate guarantee of an effective 3rd Party, and a probable Obozo re-election. (very very bad)

It doesn’t matter. A few globalist, anti-American constituents will only allow their own socialist politicians to be offered for nomination anyway.

You forgot about Huntsman, the candidate who actually WORKED in the Obama administration! Now you have Herman blaming Perry and Perry blaming Romney for outing Cain's sexual harassment allegations. I agree with you, is this the best we could do?

And ya know what, that little error in judgment is the single biggest question mark I have toward Newt. But ya know what else? My Republic is far more important to save, than that stupid move is significant. You may not agree, but that’s why we have these ‘political seasons’ of discontent.

I am ill over the Dems dirty tricks this week and the political silly season has just begun. It is going to be a long year to the next election.

Newt is part of the Establishment Republican Leadership and as such he is an enemy of We the People. They only exist for their kind, not for the rest of us. That is why he was so comfortable with Her Pelosi. That is also why he was open to the Global Warming Scam. He sees a Global Government as a solution not the Huge Final Problem that is will be.

Newts personal character sucks. His marital mess shows it, but there are other signs.

Yes, he is well read. But like I previously said, in my opinion he is on the wrong team. Not the team of We the People.

I would also like to call attention to another thing I noticed this week.

Shortly after Rick Perry gave the speech about taking a sledge hammer and later a wrecking ball to DC, he fell out of favor with the “establishment”. That in my opinion is why he is being zeroed in on over the Cain nonsense.

I hate dirty politics, and the Dems practice an extremely vile version of it.

Did you notice how the script from Nazi Pelosi differed from what Newt said? ... I thought that little slide from ‘climate change’ to Nazi’s inference of we can change your habits of use of energy so the climate can be saved was interesting, illustrative of the deceit usually practiced by commie democrats (truth ignored, that if we stopped burning ALL fossil fuels for 100 years, the effect would lowerr global temps by just over a degree), and Newt couldn’t take back his being duped by Nazi and her fleet of liars once he’d been video taped. Like I’ve said, Newt falling for the typical lies is what I want him to explain. He’s way smarter than that, as the video I linked to shows, where he dismantledd Goron’s hoax.
