My Thoughts on What Happened in Tucson

What happened in Tucson, AZ this past Saturday, was just horrible and uncalled for. Whether part of the blame can be put on Sarah Palin with the posting of the 20 people she had targeted last year, with gun sights pointed at them, is unconscionable. I will not be judge and jury, as for Palin leading the gunman on.

About and hour and half after the carnage, Palin took down the map depicting, the people that she wanted voted out. Could it be a sign of guilt, for doing what she did? Or did someone advise her to be done with it. Only Sarah can answer that.

With that said, the best thing for Palin to do is, is enough with the nonsense, the vile and hatred she spews, and not even think of running for president in 2012. If she does decide to run, here’s hoping that every Democrat, Republican, Independent or what political party belongs to, to remember the asinine and utter crap she spits out of her mouth. Also we don’t need to here anymore of her so-called commentary on Fox News, which by the way, I refuse to watch.

Sarah Palin is no Rachel Maddow, and never will be.

Is Obama Caving In?

The new year is only five days old, and Obama is already caving into the GOP, the Tea Baggers and Sarah Palin. He decided to take out the part; The End of Life rule, which was passed last year, as part of the Health Care Bill. This will make Palin come saying something along the line: this is what “Real Americans Want”. After all this hand wringing, debating, and what have you by the Democrats, Obama decides to drop it from the Health Care Reform. What else will he be dropping from the health care legislation, which this country needs so badly.

I voted for Obama in 2008, because I was convinced he was for the poor folks, and the common man. He came off as a Liberal Democrat, but after two years in office, and I believe now that he his not what he says he is, but acting more like a centrist Republican, and is slowly moving to the right. I’m sure there are other liberal and progressive voters, who feel the same way.

It seems that he is going to end up as a one term president, and if he decides to run for a second term, he will be kicked to the curb, unless he smartens up, and starts helping the people who need the help, instead of big banks, industry, pharmacuetical  and insurance companies.
