"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

We are BACK with the Latest!

Took the week off with Family visiting for Thanksgiving. Now ready to start bringing you snippets of the latest on what is happening in the political world:

 Received great news today that Joe Allbaugh, the political guru from Oklahoma, is going to be the new Campaign Manager for Governor Perry. Cannot think of a better person than Allbaugh who also helped put the Bush 43 campaign together. He is the best. IMHO he beats Rove by a mile -- now Rove has a real opponent in Allbaugh if he continues to want to tank Perry for Romney.

Herman Cain has another woman accusing him -- this time about a 13-year affair.  Word is out that he is considering leaving the race if his wife wants him to do that.  Wouldn't want to be in his home with this latest coming out.  His wife should take him to the cleaners after he had her give a press interview.  For the first time  Republicans are beginning to call for him to leave the race except for Morris of Fox News who thinks he should stay.  Better for Romney if he does as he is taking Romney and his lack of being conservative off the front page.

Former Senator Rick Santorum blasts Gingrich abortion stance as 'inconsistent' which is no shock.  Gingrich already traveled the country with Pelosi on Global Warming and worked with Hillary on Universal Healthcare plus has made millions off of being a lobbyist so not being that conservative on social issues would go along with his arrogance in thinking he can fool conservatives.  He sure didn't fool Santorum or a lot of us who know Gingrich core values on many issues are lacking.

Poll:  Gingrich would pick up Cain Supporters makes sense.  Both men, Cain and Gingrich, have had affairs and their core values are suspect.  That must be the part of the Republican Party who sees nothing wrong with the fact that Gingrich was having an affair at the same time he was going after Clinton on Monicagate and had to resign as Speaker.  As some conservatives like to say, "Clinton lied under oath and Newt didn't," but you can put me in the category of not going to vote for someone who had an affair on wife #1 when she had cancer and wife #2 when he was Speaker of the House which makes him not fit to be President IMHO.  We had a womanizer in Clinton and don't need another one.

Huntsman hits Romney as status quo candidate, in pocket of Wall Street -- finally something I agree with Huntsman -- he nails Romney in this article.  Most of the campaign donations for Romney that don't come from Mormon businessmen and individuals is coming from Wall Street.  Reminder if you hold a state office, the most you can take from the financial sector is $300 but if you are a federal office holder or a private citizen, you can take the full amount -- Romney is taking full advantage.  This person does not want someone as President who is in the back pocket of Wall Street as we already have one in the White House.

Sen. Pat Toomey says Dems torpedoed debt panel to protect Obama excerpt:

Supercommittee member Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) accused Democrats on Monday of torpedoing the deficit supercommittee because a success would have “stepped on” President Obama’s campaign narrative. 
Speaking Monday on CNBC’s "Squawk Box," Toomey said there’s “something to” suggestions that Democrats had an incentive to see the supercommittee fail. 
“That goes to the asymmetry of the incentives and I think there was something to that,” Toomey said. “The president’s fundamental campaign message was to run against Congress — never mind the fact that half of Congress is controlled by the Democrats, but that’s his purpose, and certainly an agreement in this committee would have stepped on that narrative for the president.”  
That is one bet that I would taken -- Democrats would negotiate in bad faith to protect Obama.  That is why the Super Committee was doomed to failure from the beginning.  Now what happens to the Defense Department?  Stay tuned to see if they can work out a deal on that -- wouldn't hold my breath waiting for an agreement.

We cannot forget that Climate Gate blew up big time in the last week:

Climategate–The Political Scam, Investment Fraud, and Science Scandal of The Century Exposed–The Progressive Radical Socialist’s Big Lie And Con That Man Is The Cause Of Global Warming Was In Fact Nothing More Than Politicians, Investment Bankers, and Government Scientists Creating Climate Crisis!
This had to put a smile on Senator Inhofe's (R-OK) face as once again he is being proved right that Global Warming is junk science.  Hats off to the Senator for his willingness to take a stand against the Global Warming crowd and not waiver.  In the end, Inhofe is standing tall, and the Global Warming crowd led by Al Gore have been shown to be nothing more than a scam.  Gotta love it that Senator Inhofe was right all along but we are not expecting members of the media to acknowledge how right he has been.

Wanted to post a snippet of a few happenings over the last week -- hope you and yours had a Happy Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday if you chose to go shopping or cold, rainy college football games on Saturday.  The temps were not that cold (low 50's) at Owen Field here in Norman for the Sooners game but that wind was brutal which was swirling around the field sometimes at 30+ mph along with an occasional snow flurry and really cold drizzle.  Took some time to warm up after the game!  Watching several pro games saw the same kind of weather on Sunday -- miserable!
