April 25, 2012, Edward R Murrow birthday, Unrelenting search for truth, Greensboro NC native, Murrow needed now

“dedicated his life as a newsman and as a public official to the unrelenting search for truth.”…Lyndon B. Johnson

“To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; credible we must be truthful.” ….Edward R. Murrow

“The function of the press is very high. It is almost Holy.
It ought to serve as a forum for the people, through which
the people may know freely what is going on. To misstate or
suppress the news is a breach of trust.”…. Louis D. Brandeis

The sad state of journalism, media bias and our entertainment culture highlight the significance of a true journalist, Edward R. Murrow, whose birthday we celebrate today, April 25, 2012.

From Citizen Wells April 25, 2011.

Today is the birthday of Edward R. Murrow, an icon, a beacon, a shining example of what journalism once was, and can be. He was born just outside of Greensboro, NC.

From the NC Historical Marker website:

““O. Henry” is not the only famous North Carolinian born on Polecat Creek in Guilford County. Egbert (he changed it to Edward during college) Roscoe Murrow (April 25, 1908-April 27, 1965) achieved international recognition as a broadcaster for CBS Radio during World War II and set the standard against which television journalists have been judged since.

Murrow’s ancestors were members of the local Society of Friends and staunch Republicans. His father, who took the name Roscoe from New York Senator Roscoe Conkling, moved his young family in 1913 to Blanchard, Washington, where he worked in logging. Egbert enrolled at Washington State College and subsequently went to D.C. as president of the National Student Federation. In 1935 he became “director of talks” for CBS Radio and in 1937 was dispatched to Europe. Hitler’s annexation of Austria in 1938 began Murrow’s rise to fame. His broadcasts during the Battle of Britain, beginning with “This is London,” are legendary.

In 1951 Murrow began the series See It Now, the most noted episode of which on March 9, 1954, included his dissection of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy. His signature on that series was “Good night and good luck.” From 1953 to 1959 he interviewed celebrities and names in the news on Person to Person. In 1961 he left CBS to serve as head of the United States Information Agency in the Kennedy administration. Murrow, rarely photographed without a cigarette, died of lung cancer four years later. His birthplace burned in 1985. Guilford County readily claims Murrow as a native son. A major route in downtown Greensboro is named Murrow Boulevard.”


From the PBS American Masters TV show, Edward R. Murrow, This Reporter.

““This . . . is London.” With those trademark words, crackling over the airwaves from a city in the midst of blitzkrieg, Edward R. Murrow began a journalistic career that has had no equal. From the opening days of World War II through his death in 1965, Murrow had an unparalleled influence on broadcast journalism. His voice was universally recognized, and a generation of radio and television newsmen emulated his style. Murrow’s pioneering television documentaries have more than once been credited with changing history, and to this day his name is synonymous with courage and perseverance in the search for truth.

In 1937, Edward R. Murrow was sent by CBS to set up a network of correspondents to report on the gathering storm in Europe. He assembled a group of young reporters whose names soon became household words in wartime America, among whom were William Shirer, Charles Collingwood, Bill Shael, and Howard K. Smith. The group, which came to be known collectively as “Murrow’s Boys,” reported the whole of World War II from the front lines with a courage and loyalty inspired by Murrow’s own fearlessness. During the war Murrow flew in more than twenty bombing missions over Berlin, and along with Bill Shadel was the first Allied correspondent to report the horrors from the Nazi death camps.

Returning to America after the war, Murrow was surprised to find that his overseas reports had made him a star at home. With the advent of television, Murrow was approached to host a weekly program. Along with his associate, Fred Friendly, Murrow had been producing a popular radio show, Hear It Now. The television show was to be called See It Now. Joe Wershba, a reporter who worked closely with Murrow, remembers, “Neither of them knew anything about film making or television. All they knew was they wanted to do stories. Important stories.” Television was in its infancy and Murrow and Friendly had to learn the process of filmmaking and the primitive television equipment on the job.

Murrow’s love of common America led him to seek out stories of ordinary people. He presented their stories in such a way that they often became powerful commentaries on political or social issues. See It Now consistently broke new ground in the burgeoning field of television journalism. In 1953, Murrow made the decision to investigate the case of Milo Radulovich. Radulovich had been discharged from the Air Force on the grounds that his mother and sister were communist sympathizers. The program outlined the elements of the case, casting doubt on the Air Force’s decision, and within a short while, Milo Radulovich had been reinstated. This one edition of See It Now marked a change in the face of American journalism and a new age in American politics.”

    Some will state that because some of the people Joseph McCarthy was attacking were communists,
    that Murrow negatively affected this country. However, it was McCarthy and his over zealous methodologies that
    hurt the cause.

  8. Romney’s Etch A Sketch Campaign Begins

    NY Magazine:

    …It is certainly remarkable how little ridicule or scrutiny Romney has attracted in his rather brazen reversals. In legal theory there exists something called a “libel-proof plaintiff,” which is a figure of such low repute that he cannot claim any monetary damages for his reputation being smeared, on the premise that his reputation is tainted beyond repair. This seems to be the point Romney has reached on the question of consistency. The entire political world regards him as a pure creature of convenience. His supporters have simply calculated that Romney has boxed himself in to the point where he could not afford to betray them..

    Personally, I believe Mr. Soetoro is a Kenyan citizen and has no right to a claim of AMERCAN BORN CITIZENSHIP. At too, Soetoro’s mother was under age, and when she mated with an adult foreign national bigamist, she lost all right to transfer American citizenship to her son. So either Mr. Soetoro is a British subject, or a Kenyan citizen, or else still remains an Indonesian citizen. He cannot and has not proved he was born on American soil.

    I was reviewing one of Art II Super Pac’s webpages yesterday. They list six Supreme Court decisions that they say definitely prove that a “Natural Born Citizen” has been defined by the court as a person who “was born in the U.S.A. of two U.S. Citizens.”

    Art 2 Superpac cite the six cases below:


    4. Supreme Court Cases that Cite “Natural Born Citizen” as One Born on U.S. Soil to Citizen Parents –

    • Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814)
    • Shanks v DuPont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830)
    • Dred Scott v Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)
    • Minor v Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1875)
    • United States v Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)
    • Perkins v. Elg, 307 U.S. 325 (1939)

  11. WOW!


  12. I’m in a youtube moderation at 10:30. It’s good…..”IF I WANTED AMERICA TO FAIL”

    Wonder if the lemmings can even see things when they’re put right in their face. I swear, I’ve never seen so many people soooo willing to commit suicide themselves as they participate in killing off the best country they could ever hope to live in.

    Of course, a majority of Blacks will support their messiah no matter what. However, bo’s support is already down in the Black community and the revelations about bo’s homosexuality will drive down his support even more. If Romney can continue to drive down bo’s Black support and his youth support; and he selects a good Hispanic running mate, he will beat bo in a landslide.

  14. I think Bill Oh’Really, specifically went out of his way to inject “the party establishment” propaganda about Obama’s eligibility to qualify as a legal POTUS.

    Sheriff Joe must really have them scared and scratching for all the cover they can find. The first law enforcement investigation by Joe Arpaio and his posse, of this fraud, will change the Media’s attitudes about their lies, and the ramifications of what they say to cover for Obama.

    It is now a criminal investigation, seriously looking for fraudsters, and coconspirators, before that it was a news story, now they are involved in obstruction of justice.

    I think Bill Oh’Really needs to take another, good, hard, objective, look at the new evidence, that has been discovered since his dependence on the initial BS about the birth announcements.

    Is Bill Oh’Really honestly reporting, or is he part of the cover up?

    Hey All,

    FS, I have commented this many times before:

    Romney won’t win.

    The “fun” begins probably late June, and culminates in late October.

    The Obama campaign, the DNC and many Unions will rip Romney apart.

    Just my opinion of course.

  17. Interested Bystander

    Hey All,

    I’d also like to comment that IF Romney picks Rubio for VP, it is only MORE proof that the Republicans are in on the takeover of our Country from a REPUBLIC to an Oligarchy.

    But I think most here already believe that.

    It sickens me that the GOP would want THIS man at the top of their presidential ballot.

  19. Ron Paul, In It to Win It

    Rumors of the demise of Ron Paul‘s presidential campaign have been greatly exaggerated. Never lacking an “off-script” offering to complicate the mainstream media’s primary election narrative, the Texas Congressman
    says he’s in the race until Tampa. An objective observer would note that momentum is on Paul’s side. Not only are his stump speeches drawing record crowds, Paul is actually winning states. But is Ron Paul an “unelectable” party crasher, as his detractors claim, or does his fiscally conservative and socially libertarian movement have a realistic shot at victory this August?

    “You know, when you put my name up against Obama, I can do better than Romney,”
    Paul boasted in a recent CNBC interview, citing this recent poll.


  20. Interested Bystander

    One last thing:

    It is also my opinion that there would be an easy way for Romney to win, and that would be come forward and announce that since Rubio wasn’t born to US citizen parentS, then he is INeligible to run on the GOP ticket, and then “stump” on the eligiblity clause and how Obama, even IF he was born in the United States, was never eligible because he holds a citizenship allegiance from birth with Britain.

    And then harp on the difference between Native Born and Natural Born.

    The “people” need to be RE-educated as to the INTENT of the eligibility clause.

    “We” have been indoctrinated to believe that simply being born in the US makes you eligible to run for President.

    ALL of the evidence to fight the media’s arguments about Obama’s eligibility.

    Romney would do himself well, and prove to be a REAL American hero if he would simply “out” Obama.

    But I’m dreaming, Romney will NEVER even utter the words “eligible” pertaining to Obama.

    He’s in on the SCAM also.

    According to the laws that existed in 1961 MMMMSSSS.Dunham was NOT of age to legally confer US citizenship upon her bastard son when he was born. She lacked three years of being of age. Sadly a large number of our OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS were not yet BORN themselves. Yet they believe that they KNOW IT ALL. In reality it is that which you learn after you already know it all which counts.

  25. http://www.kansascity.com/2012/04/25/3574887/mitt-romneys-vice-president-search.html

    While the logical big names are being tossed about – Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, among others – it’s all speculation at this point. No decision is close

  26. In 1961 the age at which a person could legally enter a CONTRACT or any other agreement was then 21 years of age. I can’t believe how many of our OVEREDUCATED WORDSMITHS are NOT AWARE of this. They seem to believe that the age has ALWAYS been 18 years of age. Does that say anything regarding the UNDERACTIVE mentality of the OVEREDUCATED wordsmiths.

    You can watch the live video feed of Rubio’s address at Brookings Institution here. \\


  29. Interestingly Ryan has had some publicity,but the VPotus spot is still ANYBODY’S guess. When I look at the accomplishments of Lee Iacocca, I tend to wonder if perhaps some of our LEGAL immigrants just might be better Americans than some of our so called NATURAL BORN citizens.

  30. Senator Marco Rubio Foreign Policy Speech at the Brookings Institute will start momentarily:


  31. Senator Joe Lieberman is introducing Senator Marco Rubio now:


  32. Perhaps Lee Iacocca would be a good pick for VP. If the natural born citizen thing is supposedly dead I would think that he would be attractive for such a spot. Hell why not even telephone Castro and see if he wants to run for the VPOTUS spot, or maybe even Putin himself. All the YOUNG FEMALE DO GOODERS seem to think he is really a nice guy with GREAT BUNS. Now there is the politically correct assumption. Sadly all of such insane reasoning has the smell of complete MORONISM oozing from every crack…..but these are INDEED revelations which all of us have heard of late from our SNOTNOSED overeducated child prodigies.

  33. BYE BYE Back to my shack in SLIME CITY!

  34. I would tend to think that if “Rube Goldberg” is picked to run for VP then the Constitutional die is cast. I would be willing to bet that few Americans will even give a damn about the DEMISE of our country. All Americans seem to care about is DRUGS,PORN,1000 HP SPORTS CARS,MONEY,20,000 SQ.FOOT HOMES,VIDEO GAMES,AND NITWIT REALITY TV SHOWS. aLL BOUGHT ON CREDIT.

  35. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    FS – I watched the speech and I come away with a very sickening feeling that Rubio is only wanted for getting the Florida and Spanish vote and that again the two parties have mutually agreed not to bring up the NBC controversy. In other words we have spent the last four years of apparently fighting an unobtainable uphill battle.
    I think I need a drink!

    Remember the 3 most important words in the American Lexicon are –

    3 – “Absolutely”

  42. Rubio is a good candidate. Too bad he is not NBC. I’m not going to compromise my principles because I like a candidate. That is the final word on that subject.

    Greetings All, I don’t know anything about this “contract” stuff, but the law at the time of Zero’s birth, the requirement was that the mother must be a US citizen, yada, yada, yada, and live in the US for five years past the age of fourteen. And that only applies if the child is born outside of the US.

    She was still 18 years old when Zero was supposedly born. If it is proven that he was not born in the US, then that law applies.

    Further, if the child is a “bastard” born in the US, none of the above applies. She could have been twelve years old and Zero would be an NBC.

    Hope this helps.

    “Further, if the child is a “bastard” born in the US, none of the above applies. She could have been twelve years old and Zero would be an NBC.”
    You’ve got your facts wrong. Go back (or for the first time) and check specifically what makes one a NBC…that’s Natural Born Citizen not citizen or naturalized citizen, etc. It is specific to the circumstances of birth….parents (that’s plural) who at the time of child’s birth are U.S. citizens themselves (both). And frankly we really don’t know the exact age of O’s mother at time of his birth wherever born. There are a lot of inconsistencies in that history unless you alone have been privy to the official historical forms that have been hidden purposefully from the rest of the American public.

    Rubio’s harshest remarks, outside of the general theme of indictment aimed at the Obama administration’s policies, were saved for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    “Putin might talk tough, but he knows he is weak,” Rubio said. “Everywhere he looks, he sees threats to his rule, real and imagined.”

    CW – I hate to show you what I read on Mail- on- line concerning N.C. today. The Democrat Party in your state seems to be self imploding with the John Edwards trial and now this story –


    What in God’s Name is happening to our country?

  52. While someone such as Rubio appears to be smart and dynamic in leadership qualities his situation is one that was apparently a reason for why the Founders looked closely at dual loyalties. The very reasoning for wanting to choose this man in particular focuses specifically on particular types of loyalties by ancestry of particular groups of Americans. And many of whom are also emotionally still tied to another country (or countries) which has very differing views about governance….like Cuba. Since that country (or similarly situated countries) is an ongoing concern to families with certain hopes for our own country’s foreign policies it would put more of an emphasis on Rubio or anyone similar to focus more on this matter in order to please the desires of this particular group of American citizens. Our leaders should not have that burden of promises to particular groups when their responsibilities are to all Americans…whether our overall foreign relationships/policies might hurt a particular cause or not.

  53. The Honorable Senator Marco Rubio has no “dual loyalties.” Senator Rubio is all American in his beliefs unlike the mCp bo.

  54. @FS
    Rubio would be a poor choice for VP, even if he were eligible. Portman from Ohio will get the nod.


    Ron Paul is a nice old gent, maybe his son can break the news to him the race is over. Romney will win despite voter suppression efforts by bot’s.

  55. Bill…….We people here in NC have been onto this rotten story about the Dems, boy/boy and HIV scandel in our state for over a month now…and

    It ain’t over yet…..hard to say what it will look like by the time of the DNC….

    Personally, I hope it blows the lid off of the Bank of America Stadium

    But this problem isn’t only in NC…it pandemic and “normal standard operations” with the democrats….God I hope Harry Truman, LBJ, Carter, and Slezzy Bill are happy…Together, they have done a pretty good job of wrecking this country.

    Plus the John Edwards trial is bringing some bedroom drama to the front pages….just another Democrat gone astray.

    Excellent point, Observer! Rubio MAY be an articulate spokesman for the conservative cause, but I can’t be hypocritical by spending four years emphasizing adherence to the NBC requirements of the Constitution and then turn around and support Rubio as V.P. Furthermore, I do not see his personal strength and backbone as being the ultimate that one might expect.

    Most of all, as you say, the Founders did not want someone in either the presidential or v.p. offices that would have any type of foreign allegiance. The Repubs who are pushing Rubio don’t care about the Constitution or the country – only their own political careers, which includes vote-getting.

  57. http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/event/article/id/229745/

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Marco Rubio outlined his vision today of a more muscular American foreign policy, the latest salvo in his effort to elevate his profile as Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney begins his search for a running mate.

    The Florida Republican’s half-hour speech at the centrist Brookings Institution came four weeks after he endorsed Romney and two days after campaigning with him, and unveiled a new immigration proposal that breaks ranks with some in his own party.

  58. http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/04/obama_wins_close_or_loses_big.html

    Odds are, if Mr. Obama loses, it will probably be on the order of Hoover (1932) or Carter (1980).

    The Obama presidency is a big, fat failure, despite all the spin emanating from the White House, Democrat flaks, and the left’s petting-zoo media. Americans are living Mr. Obama’s economic failure daily; their dreary experiences (or those of family and neighbors) cut right through the liberal-manufactured smoke and fog. Campaigns of distraction distract only monetarily.

  59. Cabby….

    As you say, the Constitution is Supreme law of the land….it must not be bent or rearranged to fit either a Democrat or Republican agenda.

    If the citizens of this country are going to have a Constitutional REPUBLIC, then all must obey the constraints contained within that document…..

    If we are not going to have a Constitutional Republic, then God help us to endure the mob rule that will be fall upon this nation and all who live here, Democrat, Republican, Independent, Communist, and all other legal and illegal parties and even those non-voters, who could care less what kind of government we have.

  60. In Delaware and Pennsylvania primaries, Mitt Romney sets a record he probably didn’t want

    Mitt Romney set a record with at least two of Tuesday’s primary wins, but it’s an achievement the presumptive Republican nominee probably won’t be bragging about.

    The former Massachusetts governor won Delaware with 56 percent of the vote and Pennsylvania with 58 percent. According to University of Minnesota political scientist Eric Ostermeier, that marks the first time that a presumptive GOP nominee has failed to reach the 60 percent mark in a contest conducted after his last major challenger exited the race.

    He mentioned the “single mom who feels heartbroken when she has to explain to her kids that she needs to take a second job,” and “grandparents who can’t afford the gas to visit their grandchildren.” He spoke of “the mom and dad who never thought they’d be on food stamps” and “the small business owner desperately cutting back just to keep the doors open one more month.”

    “This is from an email I just received. It appears that Oklahoma’s eligibility bill, SB 1569, is going nowhere…and, here is the latest BS from Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn on Obama’s ineligibility. It even addresses Sheriff Joe:

    April 20, 2012

    Dear Mr. ,

    Thank you for writing to express your concerns regarding President Obama, his eligibility for office, and Sheriff Arpaio’s investigation of the president’s birth certificate. It is good to hear from you again, and I am glad to hear you caught my interview on KFAQ radio.

    First and foremost, I believe President Obama’s own actions have demonstrated to the American people that he should not be re-elected for another term as president. The high rate of unemployment and our exploding national debt and deficit make a compelling case for why President Obama’s liberal agenda has not been successful.

    Even so, while I disagree with most of President Obama’s policy positions, I believe he is a natural-born citizen and eligible to be President of the United States. My belief is based upon the fact that he was born in Hawaii, as the release of his long-form birth certificate proves, and his mother is a U.S. citizen. My staff has not found any evidence that contradicts these facts beyond conspiracy theories. Also, Sheriff Arpaio stated that his investigation does not prove that President Obama is constitutionally ineligible for office or that he personally committed fraud.

    It is also important to point out that in the 2008 election, each of the 50 states placed candidate Obama on its ballot and certified its election results. Individual states are responsible for determining the eligibility of their federal candidates, and all 50 states legitimized candidate Obama’s presidency in this way.

    Again, thank you for writing. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. Best wishes!

    Hey All,

    The actions of this administration are intolerable.

    Now we have this:


    This administration has now declared war on family farms. Just like what happened when the EPA and DoL regulated local ownership of steel, mining,
    department stores, family pharmacies and almost ALL locally owned employers out of business, they are now hell bent on corporatizing farms.

    He “stumps” about the “greed” of corporations, and then GOVERNS in a way that everything must be corporatized.

    And we keep electing these folks.

    I had planned on releasing this Private Road article tomorrow but as the Bad Guys are trying to shove silver down below $30 prior to the May COMEX deliveries I thought I’d better get it out now…

    Big Money lays In Wait…for Sub $30 Silver

    For those of you on the free Public Road the conclusion of this article is what you might expect….

    BUY! BUY! BUY Physical Silver! Go to your local coin dealer ASAP and clean out his inventory of silver before others do. Miles Franklin is still offering free shipping to Road to Roota customers but that ends at the end of April. If you want that physical silver delivered directly to your house call them at 800-822-8080.

    This is the End of the Road my friends. Make sure you are ready for it.

    Have you contacted Sheriff Joe You could share much with him


  79. jacqlynsmith

    GET READY….can you say the TIPPING POINT is near or here comes TSHTF…..ka boom!

  80. The ‘fix’ is in….Jed Bush has been selected to be the ‘fix’ is in Romney’s VP..because mama Bush, NWO, says so! I bet ya baldy Carl Rove is very proud. Now is the plan to throw the presidency to the Kenyan fraud AGAIN just like a$$ hole McCain did?

  81. it is absolutely clear that Mitt Romney is NOT a Natural Born Citizen

    The Romney family Genealogy/History is recorded as the following:

    Hanna Hood Hill Romney
    “In 1885, President John Taylor advised Brother Romney to go to Mexico, to help establish settlements there. He was to first take with him only one of his families, the one with the fewest children. Hannah stayed in St. Johns, Arizona. In 1886, Brother Romney sent his eighteen-year-old son, Will, back from Mexico to bring Hannah to the colonies. She traveled alone with her children in a wagon from St. Johns, Arizona to the colonies of Mexico through Indian territory.”

    Miles Romney lived in Mexico as a Mexican citizen for the next two decades and until his death in 1904. Miles is buried in Colonia Dublan, Chihuahua, Mexico.

    This is where Gaskell Romney also became a Mexican citizen. He married his wife in Colonia Dublan.

    Wikipedia states of the Colonia Dublan colony: “In 1888, George M. Brown of Provo, Utah made a deal with German-Mexican Lewis Huller for 73,000 acres (300 km2) of land north of what was then the Casas Grandes River. The colony, which was originally called Colonia Huller, was first settled by George Lake, a Mormon colonist, with many others following in the spring of 1889.[1] However, due to a problem with the deal between Brown and Huller, titles to the land could not be given to them. Instead, the colonists were forced to rent from the native population or make their own individual purchases. When it was founded, the nearest train station to the colony was Gallego, 110 miles (180 km) away. Since a large percentage of goods consumed by the colony had to be imported from the United States, prices were high. In 1897, a railroad was built from Ciudad Juárez to a point twelve miles (19 km) outside of Dublán. The railroad proved extremely valuable for the colony, as goods could be cheaply imported and exported.[2]
    The community was also the birth place of Michigan Governor George W. Romney, father of 2012 Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.”

    There is no doubt that George W. Romney is NOT a citizen of the United States. And there are no records showing George Romney’s father ever to have been re-patrioted. At least I can find no such record.

    A Boston Globe News webpage states:”After fleeing the Mexican revolution, Mitt Romney’s grandfather, Gaskell lost his home and possessions…”

    As best as I can determine, Gaskell and this son, George came back to the US and renounced their Mexican citizenship. Once they did this all of their Mexican property and possessions were confiscated.

    The Gaskell website continues: “Gaskell sued Mexico for the loss of his property and, in 1938, was awarded damages of $9,163.”


    The big question is this…how did George and Gaskell Romney get their US Citizenship back if they still had it at all? If Gaskell (son) and Miles Park Romney (father) who were both Mexican citizens how could they transfer US Citizenship to George Romney? Mitt Romney, however, may be a birthright baby because he fell under the 14th Amendment (I doubt they were under the jurisdiction of the US) but it is absolutely clear that Mitt Romney is NOT a Natural Born Citizen unless he can prove that George Romney gained citizenship from naturalization prior to Mitt’s birth in 1947. I have found no records showing this to be the case.


  82. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/04/06/mitt-romney-s-top-five-vice-president-options-from-marco-rubio-to-paul-ryan.html

    1. Marco Rubio

    The freshman senator from Florida currently is the most likely vice presidential contender on Intrade, with a 24.9 percent chance of being Romney’s pick. Rubio is a young, charismatic Cuban-American from a crucial swing state where he is beloved by conservatives. Rubio does have some weaknesses. He has spent less than two years as a statewide elected official—exactly as much time as Sarah Palin had in 2008. Further, Rubio spent part of his youth as a Mormon, which gives pause to some evangelicals. And, unlike Romney, favors a version of the DREAM Act, which would allow certain illegal immigrants who arrived in the United States as children an opportunity to become citizens.

  83. Because so many posters here were so comforting to me when I lost my 15 yr. old Boston Terrier, Capt. Kidd, about three weeks ago, I have to share with you that a new fellow has entered my life, Max, who is a Boston nearly four years old.

    He came from a home that had too many dogs, so, in effect, I gave him a home, and he is a honey. He came yesterday, and we are sharing a lot of lovin’. The crowning point was last evening when he jumped into my other dog’s chair/bed and snuggled down – all on his own. Then to top it off, he stood up, paws on the chair arm, and looked over at my chair JUST LIKE Kidd used to do!! Needless to say, there were tears of joy. My deep grief has been mitigated, and now I have another one to love and care for.

    Thanks again for helping me through this lonely time.

  84. P.S. If you would like to see Max, go here and scroll down slightly:

  85. Observer, I have my facts straight. I just don’t know how to express them. Under the 14+5 scenario, that would just make a child a citizen, not an NBC. With regard to the “bastard” thing, what I was meaning to say is if the father is “unknown”. In any case, Zero is guilty of forgery and fraud.

    I am praying Orly Taitz can make the RICO charges stick.

    bo is getting slapped down again by the United States Supreme Court!


    “It seems to me the federal government just doesn’t want to know who’s here illegally,” Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. said at one point.
    Is Roberts talking about Obama?

    You may have used the proper term “bastard” in your blog above.


    When she married Lolo Soroto and went to Indonesia, there was a divorce (or something) saying she had been married to Barack H Obama. But that could have been a cover so Lolo would more readily have accepted little Barry……

    Go figure, almost any story will fit.

  88. Hey Cabby….

    I just too a look at Max…he’s a cutie! I hope he brings joy back to your life.

  89. Ray….the word was in the last post should have been….. has

    Sorry bout that

  90. In my last post I had typed that I suspected now that Orly’s MS RICO case was going Fed, that it would probably be dropped. But then I changed it. Guess I wasn’t the only one feeling that way.

    ” Letter to the Court, Notice of Unlawful attempt to remove the case from the Suprem court of the State of MS ”


  91. cabbyas

    I am so sad and happy for you! I am losing my friend of 12 years. She is not wanting to eat any more and being able to give her, her insulin twice a day is very hard. Her body functions are getting worse. Trying to decide when is the right time to give her up! I do have a wonderful vet to turn to though.

  92. Here we go again. Mitt Romney is a Natural Born Citizen.
    Case Closed. Get a clue.

  93. Oh, Ginger, my heart aches for what you are now going through. It is such a tough decision to come to. These dear pets of ours mean SO much to us with their unconditional love and companionship. May you have the discernment and wisdom in your decision. I am so glad that you have such an understanding vet, because that is paramount in your case. I did not have that close association, which compounded my anguish and second-guessing. Peace to you!

  94. Ginger and cabby,

    My heart goes out to both of you. We lost our 16yo black cocker spaniel last August. The pain of watching her die was almost unbearable. She never lost body functions but she had no appetite. She had difficulty getting around bu she wanted out to go potty just an hour before she died. She did her business and then wandered past the lawn and into the street and I had to run out in my nightgown and carry her into the house. She lay down on the kitchen floor and when I checked on her a short time later she made a gurgling sound and then passed on. I still miss her.

  95. yo is genealogy speak for year old.

  96. Here’s how the bo thugs operate


    I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff…the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.

  97. Film: President’s father not Barack Obama


    Dreams from My Real Father

  98. Gas prices are skyrocketing because the bo regime shout down oil production and exploration in America.


    Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said that “no one knows” if gasoline prices in the United States will reach $9 per gallon, and acknowledged that the possibility is outside his control.

    “I don’t think anyone can speculate what will happen with respect to oil prices and gas prices because they are set on the global economy,” Salazar told reporters when asked if gas prices could reach $9 per gallon, as they have been in Greece. “Where it will all end, no one knows.

    Film: President’s father not Barack Obama

  101. In moderation at 11:38pm

  102. George Zimmerman has black roots. Wonder how the race baiters will handle that.

  103. Here is a thought which I can’t seem to get rid of………..I am wondering if the persons who try to judge another person’s foreign policy understanding,or ability shouldn’t first have some verifiable,and/or proven experience THEMSELVES. At least we could have the benefit of that person’s EXPERIENCE. Talk is cheap……Soetoro proved that!
    As for Soetoro,he was allegedly BOTH CONCIEVED,AND BORN to a MOTHER who was OUT OF WEDLOCK…..making him what is referred to as a BASTARD child. For the last seven decades this has been the definition of such a child, in my part of the country, but I hasten to add that there are probably a thousand definitions as such. I used the definition which I learned in the 1940s. Again this is the definition which I chose to use…..right,wrong,or indifferent.

  104. CabbyAZ…………..
    Glad to hear that you have adopted another “LITTLE PERSON”. These little “PEOPLE” have a way of walking right into our hearts,and very souls. I don’t know what I would do if I lost my own beloved Little PERSON”. I have learned a great deal from her. She just sits patiently and keeps doing whatever she needs to do to get our attention, then she SHOWS US what she is SAYING. A picture is worth a THOUSAND WORDS…..even in the canine world.

  105. CabbyAZ…………
    Your dog is a real “cutie”. He/she appears to be a Boston Bull. They make a very loving little dog. The ones that I have encountered over the years were very devoted ONE PERSON pooches. I would venture to guess,and hope that you have a lot of great years together. These “LITTLE PEOPLE” are SPECIAL.

  106. Tina……………
    With regard to Zimmerman what is really sad is the fact that he along with his wife WORKED with BLACK underprivileged kids. What is even sadder is the fact that the GD media is deliberately SUPPRESSING that fact. While Zimmerman might have done wrong,he certainly under NO circumstances deserved the Bounty put upon him by THE WORST SLIME IN AMERICA………..which by the way was ILLEGAL,and otherwise against the law. The new black “HORSES A$$ES are at some point going to bring a lot of hatred upon themselves by the rest of America.

  107. G’NITE ALL…………….Time for a SNOOZE. Have a gooday,and GODBLESS!
