So we certainly had an eventful weekend in politics. Saturday was the Correspondents Dinner, which got a lot of coverage and viewers this weekend as Jimmy Kimmel stole the show talking about US popular culture such as the Kardashians and Lindsay Lohan, both extremely easy targets that make you wonder how long he spent on his speech. However, it got a lot of good reviews so we cant hate on it too much here even though that’s what we’d rather do.
Obama was obviously at the dinner and had quite an interesting intro of him with his microphone on in the bathroom badmouthing some of the guest speakers of the night. Then he came out acting as if he had no idea why people were laughing. The office of the presidency has become more like a cartoon character who just entertains the public while our wealth is sucked out from under us and these wars rage on. We’re supposed to just watch and laugh like good Americans.
Another important thing that happened this weekend is Obama officially began his campaign and the first ad he ran was touting the capture of Bin Laden, but many are calling it “despicable.” I think that’s a little over the line considering how far some of these campaigns can go. Bin Laden was captured under the orders of Barack Obama and it’s no surprise that he wants to remind everyone on that. To be honest I don’t have a clue what else he would run on. He’s done none of the things he promised to do and changed nothing. So this is the one victory he has to cling to, so if he’s already getting heat for that then it’s going to be a long election year for the president.
Yes please! Thank you Secret Service for giving us such a great story to laugh about. Many reports are coming out of many anonymous stories saying that the organization set up to protect the president and his family were seen getting sexual favors from strippers at strip clubs and taking hookers back to their rooms in El Salvador This apparently happened in March of 2011 ahead of when President Obama arrived for his trip to Columbia and El Salvador.
It already came out the the Secret Service hired prostitutes in Columbia but they have assured Congress that it was an isolated incident, but that’s not really looking like the case. Just when we thought the political atmosphere couldn’t get any more interesting but then we find out about a story.
It’s not that it’s really surprising that they’re buying prostitutes in a country where it’s legal, when they hold the kind of position they do, which requires them to be away so long. I’m not saying that using prostitutes is a good thing or even acceptable, I just said it wasn’t surprising. It’s no shock, but I love that people are talking about it because it’s really the funniest thing going on in politics right now.
If they ever link Obama to any of it during their investigation then he can pretty much say goodbye to his presidential position. The coming general election could be influence by information, but we’ll have to wait and see how much. We know Bill has no problem with it haha. This photo is priceless.
The Republican party seems to be taking its time to fully accept Romney as their presidential candidate and offer up the party’s full support, but is this really surprising anyone? He’s just the candidate that nobody didn’t want to be elected, not necessarily the candidate that anyone wanted. The whole primary election he really just stood on stage looking like a candidate and tried his best to avoid saying anything that would pin him down on an issue too much.
Nobody really knows what he plans to actually do if he were to become president and I think that’s how he likes it. He trying to sneak in on an incumbent with a poor approval rating. Sneak in like he did to become the Republican nominee. Just don’t say anything controversial and other than that just keep as quiet as possible and smile. He’s had so many awkward moments with the average American and it’s pretty obvious in those encounters just how out of touch he is with normal American people, but really what president does? The all come from money, some just more than others.
None of the Republican candidates in the primary have endorsed Romney and nobody’s really expecting them to any time soon. What’s even more interesting is all the people coming out and telling the media that if Romney asked them to be his running mate they would decline. The only person who actually seemed interested was Herman Cain, and we don’t think he has a chance in hell of being chosen to take on that task.
So no endorsement and nobody wanting to be his running mate, nothing looks good for Romney at the moment.
A lot of people in the media are talking about the new Ted Nugent scandal, but should we really care about this story? If you do care chances are that you have a lot of barely thought out political opinions based on mainstream party propaganda. There is nothing more meaningless than these non stories that have no bearing on the future of our country and in no way address the real problems we face.
If you get caught up in these kinds of political games, then you’re just as dumb as the people playing them. Once you realize that most of this stuff is just a stupid, meaningless game, you can begin to spot these kinds of stories a mile away and just avoid them altogether from the start. This is ideal because honestly I wish I never even heard about this story, my day would be going a lot better if I hadn’t.
If you haven’t heard the story then I’ll give you the scoop even though I just got through explaining that we shouldn’t be talking about this story. Apparently Nugent was in a rage about the presidential election and had some choice words for Obama, saying that he hates him and should have him suck on his machine gun. This is typical Republican talk. These guys try to say the most outlandish remarks and this is how these talking heads get off on each other. He obviously has no intention of physically harming the president, but at the same time he knows there are millions of dumb red necks out there who will love Nugent for saying these things.
It’s not that I care what he said, I just think the whole thing is pointless and has no place in credible journalism. We are all now just a little dumber for having heard of this story.
Just when we thought the times couldn’t get any weirder, you look around at where we are in today’s times and cant help but think “what the fuck is going on?” So much happening at once that it’s difficult to comprehend where we’ve come in just a few years.
Last week we had two white guys go on a shooting spree of black people in Tulsa Oklahoma. They’ve been charged with murder but not with a hate crime, which is obviously what it was. They killed three African Americans and left two of them in critical condition.
In the same week George Zimmerman gets charged with murder for the killing of Trayvon Martin after over a month of pleading by the public. One of the big issues is whether or not he can get a fair trial at this point. It will be tough and the fact that Zimmerman was acting on patrol at the time, in a position to protect the community, it will be very difficult to get a murder conviction but he might get manslaughter or a lessor charge.
Then later that week the North Koreans try launching a rocket to send a satellite into orbit, but they failed miserably. This event gave the North Koreans something to be extremely embarrassed about. Also, now the international community will think twice before taking another one of their threats seriously.
At Coachella music festival over the weekend people got to see a hologram Tupac rapping with Snoop Dogg. So now we’ve come to the point that we have hologram concerts of dead musicians? What year is this again?
On top of all this we have a presidential election this year and it’s between a Democrat who is a lot like George W. Bush and a Republican that’s a lot like John Kerry. What the hell is going on? Romney is in the lead but we’ll see how long that lasts.
Too many things going on, I need to lie down.
