The Left’s Reaction To Reid’s “We’ve Lost” Statement

For reason’s I don’t quite know how to interpret, the KOS seems to be looking for excuses for  Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) “the war is lost” statement instead of toasting with French champagne and blunts.

Some have questioned his rhetoric and his choice of words, calling it a gaffe. But what if Reid had carefully chosen his words? What if his intention was to spur debate, or even further, to forward the debate beyond the question of this supplemental funding bill and the squabbling over it?

If it was his intention to ‘spur debate’ then it is safe to say that the senator is a blooming idiot.  What else can you say about someone who would cause a negative effect on troop morale and help the enemy, all for the purpose of spurring debate? 

From what Reid said, it seems the rabid left is getting ‘what they paid for,’ to use their words after the 2006 election.  Is it an indication that even they are beginning to see that, as more and more people hear what they are really about, they are turning people off with their message and tactics?

First Black GOP Chairman

Meet Glenn McCall, the first black GOP chairman for York County, South Carolina.

“People feel that just because I’m African-American, I should be a Democrat,” McCall, 52, said Monday, two days after being elected without opposition during the county party convention.

“I feel I need to stand on my own convictions and values.”McCall, currently the only black GOP chairman statewide, said the party’s platform on issues such as abortion and gay marriage resonate with him. He said his faith drives his politics.

McCall hopes more black conservatives will get involved with the GOP. Here Here

France Goes To Run-Off Election

With neither candidate getting over 50% of the vote, France’s presidential election will be decided in a run-off election on May 6.  Nicolas Sarkozy, characterized as the pro-west, pro-capitalism candidate got 30.44 percent of the vote and Segolene Royal, the socialist candidate got 24.79 percent of the vote.  The French people now have a stark choice before them.

But don’t expect that the runoff will produce the same outcome.  Royal had a significant opponent, François Bayrou, a centrist candidate who got 18.31 percent of the vote.  The determining factor will be where that 18.31 percent chooses to hang their hat.  

They each have their views on how to save the French economy.  Sarkozy’s idea is through capitalism and by reducing taxes from 60% to 50%, and have more flexible weekly work hours.  Royal, on the other hand, wants to spur the economy by increasing the minimum wage by 20 percent and adding half a million government subsidized jobs and a shorter work week, more holidays, more benefits, less employer autonomy.

What Sir Winston Churchill said:

We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

Here’s hoping the French people will see that the Sarkozy ideology will be their best bet for whatever they think ailes them.

Islamofascists, The Elephant In The Room

Suspects v. Christians, What?  More evidence that the so-called religion of peace extends its influence into the media, this CNN article (buried in the World section) can’t seem to identify the religion of the murderers.  They call them suspects.  However, the three people who had their throats slit were properly identified as Christians.   This PC crap is masking terrorism and the scope and scale of it.  Don’t you think it is time to quit ignoring the elephant in the room? 

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Eleven suspects in the slayings of three Christians at a publishing house in eastern Turkey were charged with murder Sunday, court officials said.

The three victims — one German and two Turkish men — were tied up and had their throats slit on Wednesday at a publishing house in the town of Malatya that was at the center of protests by some nationalists because it distributed Bibles.
