Predictable

And I Predicted it.

When you come into power, slim as it is, and you don’t even have a unified or even feasible plan to run things this sort of thing is bound to happen.

Democrats Lose Their Edge

Poll Shows Congressional Approval Ratings Have Returned to Pre-Election Levels
The Democrats in Congress have lost much of the leadership edge they carried out of the 2006 midterm election, with the lack of progress in Iraq being the leading cause. Their only solace: President Bush and the Republicans aren’t doing any better.

It’s one thing to say everything is wrong, it’s quite another to actually do something about it. While the “sky is falling” method of power grabbing worked, it is now backfiring. People are ticked off because they are sick of hearing everything is wrong. They don’t want to hear it anymore, they just want it fixed. The lesson to be learned here, on both sides of the aisle, is HAVE A PLAN. A workable PLAN. Stop the bickering and infighting and listen to the people. We are being left with scant possibilities of real action. So far all of our options don’t actually match the will of the majority of the nation. I truly believe the iron is hot for a third party to step in, but none is organized enough to do it. We want change, not lunacy. We want peace, not defeat. We want to see our lives get better, not more inhibited. We want the government to govern, not control us. Get out of my house, get out of my bedroom, and most of all get out of my paycheck.

What we need is for a candidate to step forward as a uniter, a unifier. I sure hope he or she shows up soon. This want for a new option explains the Thompson Effect and the Giuliani Momentum. They are non standard politicians, possibly what we need. I am still undecided and watching very carefully.

Fred Thompson Set To Enter Race

Posted by Mark on June 5, 2007

I’m not one for announcing something PREMATURELY…but….this bit of news is hard to keep a secret. Fred Thompson will seek the Republican nomination for president…and he will make his announcement on July 4th.

Fred Dalton Thompson is planning to enter the presidential race over the Fourth of July holiday, announcing this week that he has already raised several million dollars and is being backed by insiders from the past three Republican administrations, Thompson advisers told The Politico.

I have to admit I like him as a person….but I’m far from jumping on the bandwagon, not until I get a CLEAR idea of his views on the various hot buttons I have. Issues like:

1. Immigration (aka…Illegals and Criminals)
2. War on Terror (aka…Muslim Pyschopaths)
3. Abortion (aka…Liberal & Secular Progressive Intervention)
4. Higher taxes (aka….Liberal & Secular Progressive Socialism)
5. Global Warming (aka…Liberal & Secular Progressive Bull****)
6. American Civil Liberties Union (aka…Liberal Dementia)
7. Social Security (aka…Liberal babysitting for life)
8. United Nations (aka…Liberal Corruption)

OH yah…not to mention illegal immigration, illegal immigration….and uh…ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION. I have a few others…but Fred can get on my good side real quick if he thinks like a……

CONSERVATIVE.
