Readers often e-mail me articles, pictures, etc. that they wish to share. Such items usually relate to the current political environment and people's displeasure, fear, and anger with the current president and administration in Washington D.C. Rather than devote an individual blog to one particular e-mail as I have done in the past, I thought I'd post a few of the pictures and a quote (the same quote was sent from several readers - interesting!) that I have received over the past week or two. Enjoy!
Here is the interesting quote sent to yours truly from several of my blog followers. Guess who said it?
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government's reckless fiscal policies.
Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here." Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
No. Mitt Romney did not make this statement! ( Although Governor Romney surely could use this in campaign ads!) The actual words were uttered by - drum roll please - Senator Barack Hussein Obama from 2006, criticizing President Bush. Just a few short years ago. Simply amazing, isn't it? The irony is priceless.
In response to the failed policies of Obama comes the following yard sign, which has been popping up in various states across the nation, including Illinois and Michigan:
Or how about this:
Down south in Georgia we find:
A two-sided sign (front): that caused quite a stir:
And this one:
Following is a billboard that has been popping up nationwide, even in Wisconsin. Yes, you can see the same billboard off of I94 eastbound not far from Milwaukee::
And last but not least, photos of things to come - in January 2013:
Thanks to all my readers who sent me the e-mailed pictures/quote I used in this post. Enjoy a good laugh and remember- go vote (and like good Republicans/conservatives - only once!)! Even with the "cheat" factor in play, it's looking good for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. The polls are showing Romney/Ryan ahead - and I'd venture to say they have a bigger lead across the nation than what is actually being reported. (As an added plus, Mitt Romney did yet another excellent job in the debates. Last night he was clearly the winner over a petty, angry Obama. As some have suggested, Romney appeared to be the president during the debates, while Obama appeared as more of a desperate, childish challenger!)
We are now going into the home stretch - both in Wisconsin and the nation. Two more weeks to go!
As uber-leftie Michael Moore stated: "People should practice the words "President Romney!"
