Santorum, Romney, And Gingrich

Oy Vey

  Is blogging about Ron Paul cursed? I mean you wouldn't believe the nonsense I'm going through trying to write about the doctor. I decided to shelf that at least for only few more minutes (hopefully), to talk about the other remaining mainstream candidates. (Why don't they each get their own post like Ron Paul?) Because honestly Larry, Moe and Curly here each seem to represent just about everything I hate about Right Wing politics. It's quite amazing how this is happening, so much about these characters just rub me the wrong way. Let's start this thing shall we.

Rick (Google) Santorum

  When it comes to Santorum it's not like I dislike the guy quite the contrary actually. He seems like a pretty nice guy with core values that I just don't agree with. I wouldn't classify his views on social issues as bigoted, they seem more misguided if anything. (Isn't he the guy who said if a rapist impregnates the victim she has to view it as a blessing and keep it?) I know right. (Isn't this the same guy who basically said "It's ok to legislate what Americans can and can't do in their bedroom"?) Yes, Yes, I know. (Isn't this the guy you accused of pandering to ignorant voters two days ago?) Well, yes but-  (Isn't this the guy who told a room full of White voters in one of the Whitest states in the union that Black people need to get off welfare?) Well- in his defense he says he said "blahh people". (You're losing it KJ, he's a bigot.) That's kind of a strong word that I'm really trying to stop using because naturally if you call people like him bigots, some who share his beliefs would be angry then try to turn that on it's head and make it seem as if I'm calling all Republicans/Conservatives/Christians bigoted and quite frankly I'm not getting into that- right now at least. (Whatever.) Also, like me, he believes felons should have voting rights so I can't entirely hate the guy. Moving on to his economic policy, I see the appeal. Give a tax cut for manufacturing companies to move jobs here makes a little sense and it's an easy sell sometimes other times it could be described as "picking winners and losers" which Republicans seem to hate. When it comes to foreign policy, he's a war mongering jack bag who believes killing Iranian scientists on Iranian soil isn't an act of war and proudly proclaims he would do that. But hey he doesn't support indefinite detentions of Americans like our current commander in chief so I guess that's a positive.

Mitt(en) Romney

  This dude cannot be human. There's just something about this guy that doesn't register right I know this metaphor is used to death but this guy has to be a robot. I would give you his stances and what I agree or disagree with but it seems like he boots a new OS every four weeks or so depending on what state he's in. His economic policy involves heavy tax breaks to the obscenely wealthy such as himself. But one thing that really bothers me is his imperialistic world view. He dreams of an "American Century" essentially meaning if a country doesn't stand in line with America's business interests he will come after you whether it's an actual war or a trade war. Also he supports detaining Americans indefinitely without trial so look forward to that with President Romney.

*Graphic Language Ahead*

Newt Gingrich 

   I'm going to be quite blunt here, WHO THE FUCK WOULD VOTE THIS GUY? Of all the politicians, pundits,authors, bloggers I may have disagreements with I never really thought - to use an example: "I fucking hate Michelle Malkin". But this douche just gets to me. He's a smug arrogant hypocrite who kowtows to the worst elements of the Republican party for votes. He does this by using code talk that anyone who took a good 8th grade level history class knows what they mean, who they apply to, and why they were used to begin with. While Romney may be a robot, Gingrich lives up to his name and has all the qualities of a Newt. He's a slimey frog shaped creature whom secretes a toxin that poisons the minds of other wise incredibly decent people. But hey if you're an asshole who's for firing the already struggling janitor and hiring kids to clean toilets for pennies on the dollar, he's your guy. A man whose entirely career has been nothing but hypocrisy, lies, and corruption. Ladies and gentlemen- Newt Gingrich.
