What happened last night? Romney got away with murder on middle class. No mention about 47%, No mention about Bain Capital, No mention “I like to fire people”, No challenging him on his Tax returns, no challenging Romney about shipping jobs overseas, No challenge on his investment in Cayenne Island, No going after him about his Romney Care. Millionaire tax cuts. How about Romney advocating to go

to war with Iran? No mention, nothing, Zero.
What happened to President Obama? Why did he look that flat? Why did he look so dehydrated? Why wasn’t he looking at Romney, and ask him questions about his flip flopping on issues? Why did he let Romney walk on him like that, without punching back? Could it be that, the president was dealing with some foreign policy issues during the day? Why did the president accept to have his first debate on his wedding day anniversary?
I mean Romney has said stupid stuff, and yet the president just stood there and said nothing about Romney’s record. The philosophical approach does not work when your opponent is taking you in a mud slide fight.
When somebody punches you hard, change your stance and punch harder. Romney is sitting on so many time bombs and yet, the president did not challenge Romney on any of his flip flopping stances. The mistake Democrats are making, is assuming all Americans are savvy, and know what’s going on.
Mr. President, your campaign advisor said Americans know the truth, and I am saying no they don’t. Many are not interested in reading long essays, or going to read on your website. They are babies. They need to be fed porridge every morning.
Not many people follow the blogs, or stick to a television set. A debate is a huge thing, and should not be underplayed. Many Voters wait for that moment, and President Obama just brought back Romney back in the race. He should have finished him off, by asking him to explain himself about the 47% remarks, About Bain Capital, and about how he, Romney was part of shipping jobs overseas. Again what happened to President Obama last night? I still do not trust Romney with the middle class and immigrants. So even if he shined on the first debate, having experience with Christ Christie, taught me a lesson not to trust anything that comes out of a Republican mouth.
 
 

Dear readers  of this blog,

I would like to apologize for being  quiet for a long time.  Time to get to work.

I can admit one thing, The rhetoric from both parties, Democrats and Republicans threw me off the cliff. The 2010 election, was so disgusting . As you can see , My last blog was in 2010. As many of you know I blogged a lot about politics, specifically election years, 2008, and 2010. The Rhetoric against immigrants and towards the sitting president turned me off. However, I am here to announce to you that I am back. I can’t sit back and just watch on the sideline. I will talk a lot about  immigration, since I am an immigrant. I will talk about the 2012 election, and I will call out any politician who is flip floping  just to win an election.

I will also talk a bit about my back ground, my native country, issues of my native country and what is going on outside this world for education purpose only.

Warning:  I am a well informed immigrant and, and registered Independent voter. If you punch me, I will punch back harder.

I am not afraid to call out hypocrisy, so fasten your belts, because  it’s going to get hot in here. At the end of the day we all want a peaceful happy America that gets along with many countries.

I am an Independent voter, and a proud immigrant, who not only pays attention to what politicians say, but also takes pride in helping others, and, the vulnerable in my community.I am a strong advocate for women across the globe as well.

I decided to change the title of this blog, so that it reflects, who I am. I am an immigrant, just like every person living in America. You are all immigrants, except the native Indians. Whether you crossed the ocean in 1607, or you came yesterday, the point is, it does not make you better than others who came after you.

I fully supported the sitting president in 2008, and guess what? I will still support him this year. Call me what you want , but truth is, I pay attention to details.

The fact that the Republican minority leader of the senate Mitch McConnell, and, the  leader of the house John Boehner, declared that they want to make sure president Obama is a one term president, I  can’t trust, or support any policians who just turn against his own sitting president in the time when this country needs to unite, especially after the election. Republicans and some Democrats could not put the party line aside and make a compromise, for the sake of your country.

It’s not that President Obama’s supporters threw him under the bus, the problem is, any normal American who  pays attention to politics , is disgusted with the system, where money is buying elections.

As long as no politician or any corporation pays my bills, you have no right to shut me up, especially when I pay my fair share of Taxes and you refuse to pay your share, you hide your taxes, you  dodge your obligation to pay your taxes, but come hard on a people  like me, expect me to follow all the laws, including paying my taxes.

That is why I am back, and that is why I am here to voice out my views and opinions.

Stay tuned for more …..


What does Rush Limbaugh have in common with Bin Laden?

They both want to see America fail. ” I HOPE OBAMA FAILS”.

Rush Limbaugh wishes we continued with the failed GOP leadership, and prays for Obama to fail.

What a loser.

The Leader of GOP declaring his leadership to his party… to his cronies. They cheered their lungs out.

Yeah bring it on Mr Bubble air.

I think  Rush Bin Laden-Limbaugh, need to be told the truth,with his  cronies, who cares more about wearing jackets than solving the real problems that this country faces.

 Rush, I am sure you feel up lifted when your GOP cronies lick your feet,when you puke rubbish on air.

Well I have a message for you Rush Binladen Limbaugh.

Enough of your nonsense talk. We are  fed up listening to your insults directed at President Obama, who is trying to fix the mess made by your GOP party.

Your hypocrisy of calling yourselves Christians and conservatives is laughable. Jesus did not carry hatred. He mixed with the gentiles and all that were referred to as sinners.

You are praying that President Obama fails? You can not pray for your president to fail if you  love this country? Your prayer about looking forward for the failure of the president of the United state Barack Obama who is trying to do the right thing, is an indication that you do not love this country. You do not care about Americans at all. All you care about is yourself and what goes in your pocket at the end of the day.

Why should one wish for your  own president to fail? Rush, is  a disgrace. His hatred for his fellow Americans is despicable and is beyond Bin Laden.

 The President is a good person. I can not believe things I am healing from some of you, who claim to be more American than your own president.

President Obama is a president for the people. He is passionate and kind.

I am so disappointed with Rush Limbaugh’s  ruthless talk, he speaks like, he has  brains of the Orange big pumpkin sitting in the field looking fresh, but rotten inside.

Rush, you should be ashamed of yourself. You do not tell me you are the entertainer. I think you crossed the lines with your craziness Mr Limbaugh.

Your words sounds like ,you want the American people to fail, to suffer. I wish you came to realization that, your party destroyed this country, and basically, what you imply when you say you want Obama to fail, you are saying screw Americans right?

How dare.

Your claim of being a conservative christian is laughable. It leaves most of us who are Christians with questions with what you, and your party stand for.

You are such a hypocrite Limbaugh.

Next time you go on the air  help me to find the perfect definition of conservative. I hope it is not “Stupid”.

By the way do you realize that many Americans know about  you have done one or more of the following:

1. a Drug addict,

2. College drop out,

3. Divorce 3 times,

4. encourage unmarried teenagers to be involved in premature sex and have children.

5. declare  bankruptcy

Yeah those are conservative values,  Rush Limbaugh is preaching. And all his ditto heads are worshiping him.
I just feel sorry for you and your crones that you did not  get the message  right. THIS ELECTION WAS NOT ABOUT OBAMA. So attacking President Obama, is attacking all American people who have been left in the cold by your party.

Your party was in charge for the past 8 years. It was not Mr Obama that botched the tax payers. It was your President and your party leaders(GOP),did put this country in the drainage, stealing tax payers money.

 Clearly, you do not give a damn about this country. You want to sink it further, like you have not done more damage already.


Disclaimer:

This blog has nothing to do with the Obama Campaign or any content in this article, is solely my personal opinion.

Every American voter has  the right to question, the integrity of leadership. Half members of my family supporting John McCain, and so far the Sarah Drama, has left them in a big doubt of McCain’s judgement. 

 Tucker, you should know in every household, there may be a republican, independent, undecided or a democrat. And we discuss all issues together on the same kitchen table, and reach the common ground. This is not about Obama or McCain winning the election, this is about the American people voting for honest leadership for the safety of this country.

I used to think Tucker Bounds was a smart guy, but this interview just proves to me how the McCain campaign runs on ignorance. All they do is twist and lie, lie lie lie. They take pride in doing that. Shame Shame. Very good at putting fears in Americans, so they do not get to the truth of their twists. Distasteful.

The McCain Camp put out ads to smear Obama, as a Muslim,and that he is a celebrity, and that he is too inexperienced to be a commander in chief? and yet now they are trying to convince the Americans that, it is ok for them to pick a VP candidate who is so inexperienced to be a stand in for McCain 72, in case of emergency. This  leaves me with my mouth open, to listen to Tucker defend Sarah ‘s foreign experience,as I have followed McCain and his Camp questioning and criticizing Obama from day one . The Karl Rove did not just destroy John Kelly with the lies and smears, but destroyed McCain himself in 2000. Lies and twists are Karl Rove and Tucker ‘s breakfast. I have never met  shameless people like this group( McCain camp) in my entire life. What they do not know is this year’s election is different. They do not get it that, this election is not about Obama, but the American people including all educated young American people, that are just as sophisticated and highly intelligent to know  smears, truth and lies, and so far the McCain camp proves to be very dam stupid in the face of the nation, when they continue to twist stories just for political gains. Instead of complaining about the majority of the American people who are questioning Sarah’s ethics, The McCain Camp jumped on an innocent guy Obama, and blamed him for all the rumours coming forward. As much as I understand that Obama is on the top ticket of the democrats, voters have a right to question their candidates. Be it Obama/Biden or McCain/ Palin.

Americans have the right to know the truth about candidates coming forward to lead them. If that is problem with Sarah Tucker then she should step down.

 Obama did not stop anyone to go through his personal records, including his school transcripts, because he had nothing to hide from the American people. People went to Kenya to dig his information, Obama never hired lawyers to intervene in the vetting process, I am puzzled, to see how the McCain camp jump on blocking the information about Sarah who is a heart beat away from becoming the president. Voters have a right to know the product that is being sold to them. Why employ lawyers, to block investigations. Is there anything she is hiding, and if she is clean, why intervene in the investigation. I blame Senator  McCain and his Campaign for putting Sarah Palin on the sport for political gains. Just to win an election. And they can not come out angry at voters who are just trying to know Sarah Palin. I think that is irresponsible and not fair to the American people, especially the majority that only rely on MSM for information.

IT leaves a lot of Questions unanswered to the American people.

You brought your VP  for purpose of wining Hillary voters, well, sorry it back fired.

Not this year guys, you are reading a wrong book.

It is amazing to hear the McCain camp selling  Sarah from a small town, as the experience candidate and say it over and over to the American people, when you have been  attacking your opposition as an experienced. What is your message guys?

The notion that Sarah has  foreign policy experience, simply because Alaska is close to Russia is laughable and a big joke. You wanna twist you stand, be my guest, American are not that stupid any more, to let your twists and lies die, without verification. American voters will work with you Tucker.

Actually , McSame and this Tucker guy looks very desperate to win an election. Well Tucker your tactic of trying to win Hillary’s voters didn’t work, it just exposed your candidate ‘s lack of good judgement. He would rather put his country at risk to win an election.

Not this year guys, the Karl Rove tactics will not work .

You started this fight. Are you forgetting your 72 years old candidate  pouncing on Obama not having enough experience, and that he is a celebrity? Now you are calling Sarah a rock star of the McCain Campaign? Shame on you guys.

Enough of your smears and lies. Never again. This should be a lesson. This year ‘s election is not about Obama, but the American people that you have lied to from year after year. Enough of your twists, lies and smears.

17-year-old daughter (above with baby brother) of Republican veep nominee is five months pregnant and plans to marry the father of her unborn child.

Palin: “Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the d

By Steve Holland

ST. PAUL (Reuters) – The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.

Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin’s five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is going to keep the child and marry the father, the Palins said in a statement released by the campaign of Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Bristol Palin made the decision on her own to keep the baby, McCain aides said.

“We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us,” the Palins’ statement said.

“Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support,” the Palins said.

The Palins asked the news media to respect the young couple’s privacy.

“Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family. We ask the media, respect our daughter and Levi’s privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates,” the statement concluded.

ifficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family.”

MCCAIN KNEW

Senior McCain campaign officials said McCain knew of the daughter’s pregnancy when he selected Palin last week as his vice presidential running mate, deciding that it did not disqualify the 44-year-old governor in any way.

In the short period since she was announced last Friday, Palin has helped to energize the Republican Party’s conservative base, giving the McCain camp fresh energy going into the campaign for the November 4 election against Democrat Barack Obama.

McCain officials said the news of the daughter’s pregnancy was being released to rebut what one aide called “mud-slinging and lies” circulating on liberal blog sites.

According to these rumors, Sarah Palin had faked a pregnancy and pretended to have given birth in May to her fifth child, a son named Trig who has Down syndrome. The rumor was that Trig was actually Bristol Palin’s child and that Sarah Palin was the grandmother.

A senior McCain campaign official said the McCain camp was appalled that these rumors had not only been spread around liberal blog sites and partisan Democrats, but also were the subject of heightened interest from mainstream news media.

“The despicable rumors that have been spread by liberal blogs, some even with Barack Obama‘s name in them, is a real anchor around the Democratic ticket, pulling them down in the mud in a way that certainly juxtaposes themselves against their ‘campaign of change,'” a senior aide said.


Palin “bridge to nowhere” line angers many Alaskans

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) – It garnered big applause in her first speech as Republican John McCain’s vice presidential pick, but Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s assertion that she rejected Congressional funds for the so-called “bridge to nowhere” has upset many Alaskans.

During her first speech after being named as McCain’s surprise pick as a running mate, Palin said she had told Congress “‘thanks but no thanks’ on that bridge to nowhere.”

In the city Ketchikan, the planned site of the so-called “Bridge to Nowhere,” political leaders of both parties said the claim was false and a betrayal of their community, because she had supported the bridge and the earmark for it secured by Alaska’s Congressional delegation during her run for governor.

The bridge, a span from the city to Gravina Island, home to only a few dozen people, secured a $223 million earmark in 2005. The pricey designation raised a furor and critics, including McCain, used the bridge as an example of wasteful federal spending on politicians’ pet projects.

When she was running for governor in 2006, Palin said she was insulted by the term “bridge to nowhere,” according to Ketchikan Mayor Bob Weinstein, a Democrat, and Mike Elerding, a Republican who was Palin’s campaign coordinator in the southeast Alaska city.

“People are learning that she pandered to us by saying, I’m for this’ … and then when she found it was politically advantageous for her nationally, abruptly she starts using the very term that she said was insulting,” Weinstein said.

Palin’s spokeswoman in Alaska was not immediately available to comment.

National fury over the bridge caused Congress to remove the earmark designation, but Alaska was still granted an equivalent amount of transportation money to be used at its own discretion.

Last year, Palin announced she was stopping state work on the controversial project, earning her admirers from earmark critics and budget hawks from around the nation. The move also thrust her into the spotlight as a reform-minded newcomer.

The state, however, never gave back any of the money that was originally earmarked for the Gravina Island bridge, said Weinstein and Elerding.

In fact, the Palin administration has spent “tens of millions of dollars” in federal funds to start building a road on Gravina Island that is supposed to link up to the yet-to-be-built bridge, Weinstein said.

“She said ‘thanks but no thanks,’ but they kept the money,” said Elerding about her applause line.

Former state House Speaker Gail Phillips, a Republican who represented the Kenai Peninsula city of Homer, is also critical about Palin’s reversal on the bridge issue.

“You don’t tell a group of Alaskans you support something and then go to someplace else and say you oppose it,” said Phillips, who supported Palin’s opponent, Democrat Tony Knowles, in the 2006 gubernatorial race.

A press release issued by the governor on September 21, 2007 said she decided to cancel state work on the project because of rising cost estimates.

“It’s clear that Congress has little interest in spending any more money on a bridge between Ketchikan and Gravina Island,” Palin said in the news release. “Much of the public’s attitude toward Alaska bridges is based on inaccurate portrayals of the projects here.”

‘Troopergate’ inquiry hangs over campaign

Inquiry: Ex-commissioner brings up undisclosed e-mails that he says mentioned trooper.

Alaska’s former commissioner of public safety says Gov. Sarah Palin, John McCain’s pick to be vice president, personally talked with him on two occasions about a state trooper who was locked in a bitter custody battle with the governor’s sister.

In a phone conversation Friday night, Walt Monegan, who was Alaska’s top cop until Palin fired him July 11, told the Daily News that the governor also had e-mailed him two or three times about her ex-brother-in-law, Trooper Mike Wooten, though the e-mails didn’t mention Wooten by name.

Monegan claims his refusal to fire Wooten was a major reason that Palin dismissed him. Wooten had been suspended for five days previously, based largely on complaints that Palin’s family had initiated before Palin was governor.

The events surrounding Monegan’s dismissal currently are under investigation by the state’s legislature. Palin has acknowledged that a member of her staff phoned a trooper lieutenant in an effort that could have been perceived as pressure to have Wooten dismissed and that her husband and other officials also had contacted Monegan about Wooten.

She has insisted, however, that she did not authorize the phone call and was not aware of it. She has said she doesn’t believe any of the contacts amounted to pressuring Monegan. She suspended one of her aides after the recording of his discussions of Wooten with the trooper lieutenant became public.

“The Governor did nothing wrong and has nothing to hide,” the McCain/Palin campaign said in a statement, blaming the issue on the campaign of the Democratic nominee, U.S. Sen. Barack Obama. “It’s outrageous that the Obama campaign is trying to attack her over a family issue. As a reformer and a leader on ethics reform, she has been happy to help out in the investigation of this matter, because she was never directly involved.”

But the trooper controversy has been swirling around Palin for weeks, long before Palin was launched Friday into the bright lights of the national campaign.

Monegan, however, said that Palin raised the subject of Wooten with him herself on two occasions after becoming governor — once on the phone soon after she took office and once in person not long after that.

Monegan also said that the governor’s husband, Todd, talked to him several times about Wooten and that three top officials in her administration contacted him.

Monegan also disclosed for the first time that Palin sent him two or three e-mails that referenced her ex-brother-in-law and his status with troopers. Monegan declined to provide the e-mails because of the ongoing investigation.

Monegan said he believes his firing was directly related to the fact Wooten stayed on the job. “It was a significant factor if not the factor,” Monegan said.

No one from the McCain campaign ever contacted him to vet Palin as a candidate, Monegan said.

Who did they contact? “We don’t talk about the vetting process,” said Maria Comella, Palin’s vice president campaign press secretary.

What role Palin played in seeking her ex-brother-in-law’s dismissal is the governor’s first brush with scandal in a political career that has been premised on reforming Alaska’s corruption plagued Republican party and raises questions not only about her willingness to use her office to further a personal goal but also about her administrative abilities.

Palin’s replacement for Monegan, Chuck Kopp, was forced to resign just two weeks after he was appointed because of a sexual harassment complaint that had been filed against him when he was the chief of police in Kenai.

Palin, in a news conference announcing Kopp’s resignation July 24, said she was unaware that the Kenai city council had reprimanded Kopp as a result of the complaint and would not discuss how her staff had vetted Kopp before naming him to replace Monegan three days after Monegan was fired.

Palin apologized for the chaos that the Monegan dismissal and the Kopp resignation had caused. “This has been a tumultuous week in the Department of Public Safety, and as your governor, I apologize,” she said at the news conference.

Alaska’s legislature is spending up to $100,000 “to investigate the circumstances and events surrounding the termination of former Public Safety Commissioner Monegan, and potential abuses of power and/or improper actions by members of the executive branch.”

The investigation is supposed to wrap up by Oct. 31, just days before the Nov. 4 general election.

Palin will be deposed along with others in the governor’s office and former administration officials, said state Sen. Hollis French, a Democrat and former state prosecutor from Anchorage who is serving as the project director for the investigation. The special counsel just this week was trying to arrange Palin’s deposition, French said.

French said Palin’s new role as vice-presidential candidate won’t change the investigation.

“I think it raises the profile but it doesn’t really change the mission or the work,” the senator said.

Before she was governor, Palin pushed for a trooper investigation of Wooten over a number of matters, including using a Taser on his stepson, illegally shooting a moose, and accusations of driving drunk. At one point, Palin and her husband hired a private investigator.

Troopers did investigate, and Wooten was suspended for 10 days, later reduced to five. That took care of it, Monegan said. But the Palin administration and Todd Palin wouldn’t let go, he said.

Palin initially said that, after she took office in December 2006, she broached the subject of Wooten with Monegan just once, when they discussed her security detail. She said that she told Monegan that Wooten “had threatened to kill my dad and bring me down.” She said she thought that was the end of it.

Monegan said Palin called him on his cell phone one night in January 2007 about Wooten, but it wasn’t related to her security detail. He said he had already met with Todd Palin about Wooten, whom he hadn’t heard of before, and had looked into the family’s complaints only to learn they already had been investigated. Palin seemed frustrated that nothing more could be done, he said.

“For the record, no one ever said fire Wooten. Not the governor. Not Todd. Not any of the other staff,” Monegan said Friday from Portland. “What they said directly was more along the lines of ‘This isn’t a person that we would want to be representing our state troopers.’ “

Palin again brought up Wooten in February 2007 as they were walking together to wish a state senator a happy birthday, Monegan said. He said he told Palin he had to keep her at arm’s distance on the matter and she agreed.

A Palin political rival, Andrew Halcro, was the first to publicly mention the Wooten matter in connection with Monegan. He titled his blog post: “Why Walt Monegan got fired: Palin’s abuse of power.”

“This is a governor who really built her name by stepping on the back of sinners — Randy Ruedrich, Greg Renkes, Frank Murkowski,” Halcro said in an interview Friday, referring to the Republican Party chairman, the former attorney general and the former governor. “And now her administration seems to be taking the same approach as the people that she criticized.”

More of the story came out on July 17, when the Public Safety Employees Association, with Wooten’s permission, released the investigative file concerning the complaints brought against the trooper by the Palin family and others.

The personnel investigation began in April 2005, long before Palin became governor and months before her October 2005 announcement that she was running. The investigation into Wooten wrapped up in March 2006, before she was elected.

Troopers found four instances in which Wooten violated policy, broke the law, or both.
