Florida Presidential Primary Day

YAY!  Silly season is almost over.  No more political flyers stuffing my mailbox, robocalls interrupting my evenings, and spam filling my inbox – at least until the general election campaign starts.

Floridians began going to the polls in early voting a few days ago, but the contest ends when the voting booths close tonight.  If you live in the sunshine state and have a photo I.D., get your butt down to the polls.  If you don’t, I don’t want to hear your b****ing about who the eventual nominee is.

This election will eventually boil down to 2 candidates; one that will turn America away from the path of  soft socialism,unconstitutional power grabs, nanny-state paternalism, and international appeasement or Barack Hussein Obama II.  In November you will have the choice to vote for a return to American values and Constitutional principles or you vote for what we have now.

Jon Huntsman wins (liberal) straw poll.

Former governor of Utah, former Obama appointed ambassador to China, and all around orange-ish looking dude Jon Huntsman is making news today.  After months of disappointing showings in the polls and debates, presidential hopeful Huntsman  wins an amazing 49% of the votes in a straw poll as the Republican “most qualified to be president” (among a slate of 11 including Palin, Giuliani,  and Christie).

Wow!  Where did this happen you ask?  Well, the commies, socialists, and progressives behind the unwashed Occupy Wall street miscreants held a straw poll at their Take Back The American Dream Conference in D.C. this week.  Organized by radical agitator Van Jones, other speakers included Rep. Barney Frank (D – MA), union attack dog Richard Trumka, Carter and Clinton economist hack Robert Reich, and a cast of familiar progressive nanny-statists.

Among the other great news out of the poll is Obama’s amazing 72% strongly approve/somewhat approve number.  The president should feel very relieved at this result as his recent national numbers had him upside down in job approval.  His administration’s proposed American Jobs Act also receives a massive thumbs up at a whopping 97% favorable rating.  In fact, 78% said that the scope of the president’s plan is too small.  The top 2 areas respondents selected for an effective path to building a stronger future were:

  • Raise tax rates on millionaires and billionaires, and impose a new financial transaction tax to help get our books in order.
  • Reduce defense spending and instead use that money for public investment at home through a community based approach that will boost local economies.

During this same conference where Obama is reaffirmed as savior of the universe and Huntsman gets his overwhelming approval as the GOP’s best and only hope, we also see that Romney comes in a strong second at 22%.  No other declared Republican candidate even drew double digits.  This is news that no real Republican campaign should hide from.  I say shout it from the rooftops.  People really need to know who the progressive choices are in the Republican field.
