“Don’t attack my dog or you might get shot … if you’re a coyote,”
– Rick Perry, after shooting and killing a wily coyote outside Austin, Texas. A coyote attempted to attack his daughter’s Labrador pup, but Perry obviously made sure that didn’t happen.
“I knew there were a lot of predators out there. You’ll hear a pack of coyotes. People are losing small cats and dogs all the time out there in that community,” Perry said.
That, coincidentally, reminds me of liberals.

Nothing I say can make this any clearer. Enthusiasm with 6 months to go: Dude.
Really. The “reform” Harry Reid has been championing for the past weeks failed thanks to Senate Republicans and Cornhusker Kickbacker Ben Nelson. So what did Harry Reid (Snake – NV) do when it was clear it was going to fail to get the 60 votes needed for cloture? He changed his vote:
The Senate, in a 57-41 vote, failed to get the 60 supporters needed to proceed on the regulatory overhaul. One Democrat, Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska, joined with the Republicans.
But the evening vote was just part of a legislative ballet keeping bipartisan talks alive. At the end, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid switched his vote to “no,” too, but that was just a maneuver that will enable him to call for a new tally as early as Tuesday.
So Reid failed to get what he wanted the first time and will try it again with likely even more tricks.
Obama’s response to the lack of cloture:
“I am deeply disappointed that Senate Republicans voted in a block against allowing a public debate on Wall Street reform to begin. Some of these Senators may believe that this obstruction is a good political strategy, and others may see delay as an opportunity to take this debate behind closed doors, where financial industry lobbyists can water down reform or kill it altogether. But the American people can’t afford that. […]”
Not only is he acting as if you’re stupid, the President is obviously misleading you. The Republican’s halting cloture doesn’t put it into back rooms where smoky deals (such as what we saw in the health care legislation) are made – Reid is pretty good at that on his own. A ‘no’ vote on cloture is a vote to try again on the bill in a bipartisan manner. Don’t let the President or Harry Reid convince you otherwise.

“Why? Because the public has had quite enough, thank you, of government activism this year…and, after Wall Street reform is passed, any further attempts to pass major legislation will add to legitimate conservative arguments that the federal government is attempting to do much to do any of it well.”
You see, Joe Klein (the “objective” guy from TIME mag) wants what’s best for the progressives.
Think about all the “sweeping” reforms the Democrat’s are looking for: Wall Street “reform,” immigration, cap and trade, the list goes on. They’ll never get that much accomplished by November.
I say either put on the brakes or keep trying, Democrats. Because you’ll either wait too long with the former or get maybe one more “major” victory with the latter. Either way, you’re writing your own 2010 eulogy.
It’s just been announced that former President George W. Bush will be releasing his memoir (Two memoir posts in a day! Weird.) Decision Points will be released on November 9th. Unlike most memoir’s though, Bush’s will center around the heavy moment’s of his life when large decisions were made.
Bush has said he is not writing a traditional memoir but an account of key decisions in his life. The cover features a photo of then-President Bush alone with his thoughts, standing in the Rose Garden Colonnade, wearing a dark suit and holding a briefing book, his head turned slightly from the camera.
According to Crown Publishers, “Decision Points” will offer “gripping, never-before-heard detail” on such historic events as the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the 2000 presidential election along with Bush’s decision to quit drinking, his relationship with his family and other personal details. […]
A publishing industry source familiar with the book said that Bush had completed a first draft and was editing the manuscript on a computer at his office in Dallas.
See that, libs? Not only can he read, but he can write and use a computer! He’s not the numbnut you made him out to be!
Plus, based on the media I’ve seen on the announcement thus far, things seem to be looking up for the former President’s legacy.

I’m pretty pumped about 2010. November 2010 will be the first time I’m eligible to vote – ever. That’s a big deal. So when I ran across the wonderful new site created by the Republican Governor’s Association called “Remember November,” my interest was piqued. It’s a fun little site that pledges to “Remember November so that we can return America to its founding principles of freedom, personal responsibility and economic liberty. We Remember November so we, our children, and grandchildren can live with the freedoms our founding fathers intended.”
And be sure to watch the awesome video on the page. It will fire you up.
So who’s ready to win in November?
