Friday, April 6, 2007 - Romney Exaggerates Hunting Experience

Mitt Romney is sure going to impress those hunters:

In a question-and-answer session Tuesday in Keene, N.H., Romney spoke of his experience with hunting in a manner that suggested a close affiliation with the sport.

" purchased a gun when I was a young man. I’ve been a hunter pretty much all my life," he told a man sporting a National Rifle Association cap.

What does "all my life" mean?

Yet the former Massachusetts governor’s hunting experience came during two trips at the bookends of his 60 years: as a 15-year-old, when he hunted rabbits with his cousins on a ranch in Idaho, and last year, when he shot quail on a fenced game preserve in Georgia.

The 2006 trip was an outing with major donors to the Republican Governors Association, which Romney headed at the time.

Does this mean Romney was trying to mislead anyone. Of course not:

An aide said Wednesday that Romney was not trying to mislead anyone, although he confirmed Romney had been hunting only on those occasions in his life.

Pelosi, bypassing the Bush Administration's wishes to go talk to a country that is a state-sponsor of terrorism, was even bashed by The Washington Post, hardly a friend of the Republican Party. Further showing her incompetence with handling the situation, she tried to speak for PM Olmert and got it dead wrong! He even had to come out with a statement condemning what pelosi said! The leaders of Syria thinks she is a buffoon and is laughing at her right now.

As far as Rudy goes, I am not a big fan. I would much rather see someone like Fred Thompson run and win. I also like Tom Tancredo and his stand on illegal immigration.

If the Dems continue to push their far-left, out on the fringe, agenda of - anti-war, lose at any cost, support our enemies more than our troops, hate Bush at any cost - they will set themselves up for a landslide loss of their own next year. The American people do not want to lose the war in Iraq, they do not want to see our troops de-funded while in harm's way, they will not stand for a Party that deems it necessary to play chicken with our military's budget and funding. The Democrats did not campaign that they were going to do any of this stuff last November, because they knew if they did, they would lose. They are hoping to get all of this out of the way early so that by the next election cycle people will have forgotten this. I think their calculations are way off, though.

No President during wartime has high approval ratings. FDR had very low AR toward the end of WWII before his death. War is hell on earth, it is very hard. A President can not conduct a war based on approval ratings. WWI and WWII would not have been won if fought that way. The Vietnam war was fought that way and that is why we lost. The Dems are hell-bent on making this another Vietnam, whereas it bears no resemblence to it in any other fashion.

By the way you worded your comments, I can tell you are very intelligent. I hope you will use it for more than just to bash Bush and the Republicans. I am not a neocon, I believe in a set of values called conservatism. I vote Republican because they are the only Party that will even house my beliefs. They don't always abide by them, but at least they can be debated there, the Democrat Party will not even entertain the thought of a conservative idea. They don't want me, so I don't want them. Thank you, and I hope you will continue to visit my Blog. I do like to hear how other people view things, as long as they do so intelligently, and you seem to be one of those people.

I wasn't trying to make you laugh. That comment about Girl Power was not written by me. I edited it because of a misspelled word, which I hate. I am going to do the same with your last comment.

I do not fear women as rulers, I think Margaret Thatcher was a great PM, I would like to see Condi Rice run. But women like Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi are no Margaret Thatcher by any stretch of the imagination.

I am attracted to the values and beliefs a person stands for, whether they be male or female is of no consequence to me.

A Democrat that I like, hmmmm. I assume you mean a current one, because you do realize that the Democratic Party that our fathers and grandfathers knew of is not the same one we have today. There are only two I can think of that I have any respect for, and that would be Joe Lieberman and Zel Miller. Who, both by the way, have been shunned by their party's leaders. Joe Lieberman, for simply supporting the War on Terror, because he agrees with his Party's liberal agenda 90% of the time. I really do not care for Jimmy Carter, Bill or Hillary Clinton, John Murtha, Harry Reid, Dianne Feinstein, John Kerry, Al Gore, Barak Obama, John Edwards, etc. who are nothing more than a bunch of socialists who believe the Federal Government has the right to control and take care of us fron the cradle to the grave. FDR, Harry Truman, and John F. Kennedy did not believe in those things. I think I explained my view and why I want no part of the modern day Democratic Party in an earlier comment.

There are some Republicans I despise as well. Chuck Hagel is one of them. Also, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Arlen Specter are ones I don't like. As I have stated before, I believe in a set of ideas called conservatism, economically, socially, and morally. If the Democratic Party were to suddenly grow a conscience in these matters - i.e. abortion, death penalty, no civil rights for terror suspects held at G.B., gay marriage, 'separation of church and state' not really being in the Constitution and quit using that tagline to try and eliminate all references to God from the public square, lower taxes and less government involvement in our lives, realize that Bush is not our enemy but Islamic Fascists are, etc - I would give them a second look, but I am not holding my breath.

I agree with you and a lot of other people that the War has not been conducted in the best fashion. But that can be said for all wars, past and present. No war is without its mistakes, misguided strategies, rogue military soldiers, wrong intelligence, etc. I do believe, however, that the world is a safer place with Saddam and his two sons dead, along with over 70% of the many key leaders of Al-Qaeda. Weapons of Mass Destruction was just a small part of the reason we went into Iraq, the MSM just hyped that one issue up to make Bush look bad. My personal belief is, though, that Saddam did have WMD's and the proof is he used them for years to kill hundreds of thousands of Kurds over the years. There are many highly intelligent people who have written about Saddam and his arsenal of weapons that, because of the warning we gave him before we invaded Iraq, he was able to have them deported to Syria. Does Syria ring a bell? Nancy Pelosi?

Speaking of the Syria issue, Bush and other key leaders of his administration have tried to deal with them, to no avail. They refuse to denounce the suicide bombers they export to Iraq, they refuse to denounce their allegiance to Hezbollah, they refuse to denounce their call for Israel to be wiped off the face of the Earth. How do you deal with people like that? You don't do it by playing nicey, nicey, huggie, huggie, and kissey, kissey with them like Pelosi tried to do.

As for the definition of victory. Bush has stated that many times, it is simply getting Iraq to a place where they are equipped and able to defend themselves from Al Qaeda terrorists, secure their border from Iran and, you guessed it, Syria. Right now Bagdad is basically the only place left to secure. Mosul, Arbil, Kirkuk, An Nasiriyah, and Al Basrah are relatively peaceful. As for how long I don't know, but does it matter? We must win this, there is no other option, it is vital to our national security and to try and have some semblence of stability in the Middle East. If we were to have Iraq as an ally over there similiar to the one we have in Israel, it would help our position over there immensely.

And, yes, Ronald Reagan was the great one! God rest his soul.
