GOP Debate Tonight.....or Watching the Cat Herding...
"A good politician is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar."~
H. L. Mencken
I actually looked for cats in a room full of rockers because I think that is more accurate...but there were no such photos or such art.....So the popcorn is ready.
Will Any of them really talk Creative Jobs Solutions ? Will they have the Nerve to keep pursuing their Austerity Chatter ? Will they keep blaming the Poor and the Elderly and the Unemployed for the Economic Mess ? Will any of them really offer Real Solutions or will they keep serving up Obama Bashing , pretending to be Strong Vision Men ? Will they continue their bashing Muslims, Immigrants, Public Workers and Unions ? Will they bash puppies and kittens and babies too ?
Will they mention ANY of the Following:
(1) One in Four Children Living in Poverty and suffering Hunger issues
(2) 24 Million UnEmployed ( Millions More UnderEmployed ) This figure does not even acknowledge the 22% Rate of Unemployment for Returning VETS, or for Americans over 40 and also newly graduated.
(3) We are behind other countries in Infrastructure and Education and Quality of Healthcare.
And do read this from Raw Story ( Raw Replay) has More from Robert Reich concerning Mitt Romney, that is a Must See and Must Read, and should prove enlightening for the Debate.
Other Things to Note: Watch for the corporate Pandering and Coddling....( Let's see How Many Times they mention the Taxes for the Rich and let's see Who Sponsers the Debate).

The Incomfortable PreDebate Banter...
I went to walk the dog and missed the most disgusting moment according to my son they read Perry's Execution Record ( 254) and the crowd "cheered"......so today I saw what Reagan's own daughter said about it, and it was sobering...
"The moment that would have broken my father's heart was the moment when applause broke out at the mention of more than 200 executions ordered by Rick Perry in Texas. It was stunning and brought tears to my eyes. This is what we've come to? That we applaud at executions?" -Patti Davis, Ronald Reagan's daughter.
