Skip to comments.GOP Is Looking For "Captain America," But Captain America Wouldn’t Outlaw Midget Bowling

Ive been perplexed for six years as to why Hillary-the-Inevitable has already been deemed our next president. Likewise, I didnt understand the Dems insistence on continually pumping up the deflated War on Women balloon and attempting to send it aloft again and again when it clearly hasnt been ready for prime time since the 80s.
Then, as I was reading Daniel Henningers column, Captain America Wont Save Us, it hit me: it was all part of the deal as Ill explain in a bit.
You have to feel sorry for the Democrats. In a world warming to presidential politics, what do they talk to each other about? Nearly two years from the election, theyve already got their launch vehicle in place, former everything Hillary Clinton . Fire and forget.
The one-time First Lady, U.S. senator and Secretary of State pumped up a political crowd in Silicon Valley this week by vowing, presumably as president, to crack every last glass ceiling.
The article goes on to explain that the other camp suffers from the opposite problem: the Republicans have more candidates for the number one slot than the Westminster Dog Show.
Its all great fun. But theres something a little off about the Republican presidential conversation right now. It doesnt come close to reflecting the seriousness of the task facing voters in 2016: Elect a successor to the most catastrophic American presidency in over 80 years. And it aint over yet.
Instead of offering an anxious electorate a recognizable alternative to this status quo, the Republicans look like theyre obsessed with discovering Captain America.
Okay Im good with that
Well get back to that, butt I still couldnt get past the first two paragraphs about Hillary being a slam-dunk:
I said dunk
Why cant Republicans be more like Democrats? The Dems have been planning for winning the 2016 election since 2008. In fact it was part of winning the 08 election; the deal between the Clintons and the Obama camp. When it became obvious that BO had somehow out-charmed the lovely Hillary with the press, that he was going to win the nomination and go on to be deigned Americas first real black president, the deal with the Clintons was struck. In return for their support Hillary would not only get the Secretary of State position to develop her foreign affairs bona fides, butt the O-camp would spend the next 8 years ginning up the war on women machine to such a fevered pitch that by the time Hilz ran the country would be as emotionally attached to the idea of breaking through that imaginary glass ceiling to elect the countrys first Magic Female president as they had been to elect the first Magic Negro.
So dont expect the Republicans War on Women!® to go away anytime soon.
Mr. Henninger goes on to explain that in normal times it might not matter how the Republicans - without a coherent message or strategy go about selecting a candidate; butt these are definitely NOT normal times:
The task that Barack Obama is dumping on the next U.S. president, of either party, is overwhelming.
Heres the job description: Needed, a U.S. president able to confront a world in chaos, rebuild shattered alliances, revive the countrys demoralized intelligence services and senior officer corps, manage foreign and domestic demands with a budget that will be drained for years by fantastically expensive debt servicing, and along the way restore public faith in an array of deeply politicized federal bureaucraciesJustice, HHS, EPA, Labor, Internal Revenue, the NLRB, FCC, EEOC, even the Federal Reserve.
That - plus allowing Iran to go nuclear, ignoring the nations immigration laws and ruining our health care system by cramming ObamaKare down our throats pretty much summarizes the things that most everyone here is so frustrated about. And it also explains our current state of mind regarding the team that cant shoot straight, which of course doesnt matter if the whole teams going to form a circular shooting squad anyway.
So what to do? Unfortunately Mr. Henninger leaves us hanging, lamenting that its up to the big donors to dictate real policy to the candidates. Are you kidding! Thats exactly what gave us the current regime! And if Hillary turns to her big donors to dictate policy, that glass ceiling she just smashed through is very likely to leave some nasty marks:
"She tweets about women's rights in this country and takes money from governments that deny women the most basic human rights. Carly Fiorina, CPAC February 26
So Im afraid this time I cant take Mr. Henningers advice. Im going to continue to look for Captain America, because he/shes out there, and just trust me: it aint Jeb Bush. (h/t Gerard)
Why did Jeb Bush outlaw dwarf tossing? Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!
So sure, it would be nice if the Republicans could get their act together, butt until they do I suggest we continue to analyze all the balloons theyre floating:
Theres sure to be one that can float our sinking boat.

Of course, less sophisticated entertainment is also available.
“Ive been perplexed for six years as to why Hillary-the-Inevitable has already been deemed our next president. “
You have to go back decades.
WJC was groomed from an early age to be president. He ‘picked’ Hillary as his wife. GO FIGURE! Why would WJC pick homely Hillary as a wife? Go look at who she was associated with.
Hillary is from Chicago.
BHO was groomed from an early age to be president. He ‘picked’ Michelle as his wife. GO FIGURE! Why would BHO pick homely Michelle as a wife? Go look at who she was associated with.
Michelle is from Chicago.
We have a GOP government - Government by Other People,
To put it into the right prospective...the Republicans might be seeking Captain America, but they will accept Aquaman or Green Lantern as the final choice.
“Its all great fun. But theres something a little off about the Republican presidential conversation right now. It doesnt come close to reflecting the seriousness of the task facing voters in 2016: Elect a successor to the most catastrophic American presidency in over 80 years.”
I agree with him on that point. This CPAC has left me wanting.
“In 1989 he outlawed dwarf tossing in Florida.”
In 1989 he held no political office. He was working for his brother’s campaign.
The GOPe is missing the point that those who step up to save the Republic will go down in history with those who founded it.
The Republican Official Choice:
Cruz seems to have made his choice, but the Weasels are strong and well fed.
I was living in Michigan when that state outlawed dwarf bowling.
Local TV news interviewed a number of angry little people who had just lost a substantial source of income.
When Hillary talks about breaking the glass ceiling she’s only talking about her being the first woman president. All other women can line up to get raped by Bill.
By November 2016 I suspect it will be too late to get Obama out of office. There will be 13 to 14 million new registered Democrats
strategically seeded in states that are apt to vote Republican by a manageable margin.
The fumbling-bumbling “leadership” in Congress has effectively killed the Republican Party, and Jeb Bush, if he secures the GOP nomination, will be the stake through the heart.
