In This Corner

By Gerry Garrison

W ell, folks, aren’t you getting pretty sick and tired of all the “Wiener” jokes and comments about this idiot on the news.  I certainly am.  This sicko is still trying to make excuses for himself and trying to apologize, but still more crap comes out, including from his mouth.

This dullard hasn’t got the common decency to shut his mouth, but continues to make a fool of himself, thus making more fodder for the news networks. Can we move on?

If Congress was going to file an ethics complaint against him and someone in Congress was actually going to do something about it, well maybe I would care.  But like Charlie “Wangle” Rangel, no one in authority really cares.

Until Congress starts cleaning up their act, and getting rid of all the malcontents, abusers, addicts, and liars, both Houses will continue to be a place of toadies.  Whoops…that would mean only a handful of people left.  Do you get my point?

Then there’s our President.  He continues to show his incompetence in office.  He still believes we are in an economic recovery, maintaining it “…is going to take time”.  Really?  How much time, Mr. President?  ‘Till you are finally out of office?

Meanwhile, the Dow closed below 12,000 because of the negative economic numbers and slow job growth for May.  Then there are the Chinese stating that it is already too late, “… the U.S. is already defaulting”.

With so much evidence of the ineptitude of this administration, how anyone believes this man can be re-elected is beyond me.  I pray every day the American voter finally wakes up and fires this inept individual in 2012.

So let’s move on.   More and more people are throwing their hats in the ring for the Republicans running for President.  More and more need to drop out.  One in particular – Newt Gingrich.

This man still believes he can win the Republican nomination.  Seriously?  He has much chance of winning this nomination as Hillary Clinton changing parties and running as a Republican candidate for President.  Give me a break.

Does anyone wonder why over half of his staff left and defected to other candidates and potential candidates for this nomination?  Actions speak louder than words.  These actions were pretty deafening.

L et’s look at the Republican front runner, Mitt Romney.  I like Mitt.  He has done great things.  One example is the 2001 Winter Olympics.  I was in Salt Lake at the time this event was put on. 

Romney was put in charge of these Olympics after those before him had run this event into deep debt.  By the time the Olympics final event completed, his abilities as a businessman had put this event into the black.  The 2001 Winter Olympics actually made money.

My problem with Romney is his time as governor of Massachusetts and the well-known” Romney Care”.  This health care plan is basically the same as Obama Care, only at a state level. 

Let me be clear. Whatever states do with their health care is up to that individual state.  But not nationwide. 

Even though he has stated he has issues with Obama care, why is it he doesn’t he apologize for signing off the health care bill in Massachusetts that almost brought that state to bankruptcy? That bothers me. He needs to fess up.

Then there is Herman Cain, a Tea Party favorite who isn't a groomed politician.  An outsider who says what he means and means what he says, he'll eventually hack someone off. 

He's ignited controversy lately with his comments about gays and comments about Muslims.  A politically incorrect man, he is a refreshing light in the political darkness that surrounds many of the politicians currently running for office.  This is someone I truly like.

There are others that need to be looked at, and I will in future columns.  So far, the only ones that I am even considering supporting are Cain, Palin and Bachmann.  All are refreshing breaths of fresh air in the political smog of candidates currently running for the Office of President of the United States.

Are there others that I would consider? Perhaps.  I am still watching and waiting. It doesn’t look good though.  But what do I know?  Just saying … # # #

Life is short. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
