The Road to 2012 - Best Reads

Romney and Gingrich, from bad to worse
by George Will-Opinion Writer- Washington Post

Republicans are more conservative than at any time since their 1980 dismay about another floundering president. They are more ideologically homogenous than ever in 156 years of competing for the presidency. They anticipated choosing between Mitt Romney, a conservative of convenience, and a conviction politician to his right. The choice, however, could be between Romney and the least conservative candidate, Newt Gingrich.

You Will be Called a Racist if You Oppose Barack Obama
by Neil Snyder - American Thinker

Opinion polls can be very misleading because they tell us how people feel at any given moment. Today, people may believe that President Obama is doing a terrible job and that he shouldn't be re-elected because the European debt crisis is on the front burner, and he's viewed as ineffectual. Tomorrow, we may have a major national security event, either real or manufactured, and he could be seen as a great leader who deserves four more years. 
It pays to take polling data with a grain of salt.

Cain Stalls in Iowa
by Katrina Trinko -National Review Online

For Charlie Gruschow, chairman of Tea Party of America and a longtime Herman Cain supporter in Iowa, the latest allegation may be the last straw.

“I’m not sure,” he said earlier this week when asked if he remains a Cain backer. “I don’t know. I’ve had three or four days to process some of this information, and . . . I’ve been a Herman supporter for well over a year now, so I’m hoping that — I just don’t know what to make of these most recent allegations.”

Romney Declines Lincoln-Douglas Debate Against Gingrich
By Erin McPike - Real Clear Politics

With the Republican presidential primary appearing to have narrowed into a two-man contest, Human Events and Red State moved quickly to lock down a date for a Lincoln-Douglas-style debate between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich.

The two organizations went so far this past Monday as to firm up the Annenberg Theater at the Newseum in Washington as the venue on Dec. 19 after another debate originally scheduled that day was canceled. For its part, the Newseum was excited to host the pre-primary forum.

There was just one problem. While Gingrich was ready to take his place on the stage, the Romney campaign politely declined in a series of mostly e-mail exchanges.

Is it game over for Obama?
by Nicole Stockdale/ Editor - Dallas New

Everybody seems to be talking about demographics these days, after the progressive Center for American Progress' Ruy Teixeira and John Halpin published their 68-page study, "The Path to 270: Demographics versus Economics in the 2012 Presidential Election." (pdf)
The report lays out the following central questions of the 2012 presidential election:
Will the rising electorate of communities of color, the Millennial generation, professionals, single women, and seculars that pushed Obama to victory in 2008 be sufficient and mobilized enough to ensure his re-election in 2012? Or will the Republican Party and its presidential nominee capitalize on a struggling economy and greater mobilization from a conservative base that holds the president in deep disdain?
We've compiled a set of interesting reads to keep us all better informed about what is happening in the race for 2012.  It feels as though we've been covering these events for a long period of time and we still have until November of 2012. 

We've not been online since Thanksgiving due to  pre-scheduled travels and lack of time.  We did keep up with the news and developing events, and above all, learned a great deal from those with whom we visited and conversed.  Our usual readers know that Two Sisters From The Right have declared our support for Texas Governor Rick Perry.  We did not do so when he entered the race and was posting high numbers in the polls.  We decided to endorse the Governor once his ratings had fallen drastically.  The reason for this was clear.  Unlike many of those who are apparently polled, (We've not been polled, have you?) we know Governor's Perry's abilities, and we know that he is the man best qualified to lead this country during troubled times. 

While in the Chicago area, an obnoxious Democrat referred to us as Texas Republicans.  That, we truly are, and being Texas Republicans gives us first hand experience to know the Governor much better than others in the country, some of whom had never heard his name before he entered the race.  Sadly, name recognition in this particular field of candidates does not guarantee that the best qualified person will be the nominee. 

In 2008 Barack Hussein Obama promised "change."  It was change he never delivered.  Rick Perry will deliver change.  He is a man of his word, he has the leadership experience, the honesty, and the determination to make America great once again.  Rick Perry is a patriot, and a man of faith who is fair and humble. After Obama's arrogant approach to the presidency, a little humility will go a long way! 

It is our opinion that the Republican Establishment, as well as the Television media has treated Governor Perry very unfairly.  The deliberate media blackout of positive news about the Governor has hurt, of that there is no doubt.    Instead the media has delighted in a continuous airing of a memory lapse or what has become known as an "oops" moment.  Thankfully, Rick Perry is man enough to own up to his mistakes and is not fearful of self deprecating humor.  Key figures in the Republican party who know the Governor well have also withheld their support and have not helped him become better known.  Even his former mentor, Karl Rove, has held on to an old grudge and not used his considerable clout to help Mr. Perry become better known to the national audience. 

During our travels through the Midwest, we were truly amazed at how little some of the folks with whom we spoke knew about Rick Perry.  Hopefully there is enough time for voters to begin to realize who the best man for the job of president during these critical times will be.  Unlike Barack Hussein Obama who once told an audience that his campaign had visited all 57 states, Rick Perry knows that we're only 50, and there are more states to win than Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida and South Carolina. 

We encourage voters to keep reading, and becoming better informed.  We do caution you however that when you read, even though we'd love to convince you to think as we do, to be a DISCERNING reader, and to make up your own mind, always putting the future of our country first.

The GOP Race

Welcome back! Great reads! Neil Snyder is absolutely right! Just try posting anything negative against Obama in that liberal rag, HuffPo, and you will be bombarded with accusations of racism. It doesn't matter if you offer facts and/or statistics to validate your will still be labeled a racist.

Skin color should have NOTHING to do with political affiliation, and by now most Americans should be tired of manipulators playing the race card, but the great uniter has set race relations back a few decades.

Frankly....I don't give a hoot about the color of his skin. I want him out of the White House because he's arrogant and incompetent....because he lacks the leadership to guide the nation's through one of its worst crises....because he is systematically subverting the Constitution....and because he will convert our country into a socialist state if we give him another four years.
