Why I Call Myself a Romney Democrat

Let’s start with a couple of illustrations, this…

….and this…

My love of politics started as a child and exchanging birthday cards with President Eisenhower, we shared a birth date. Every year I’d buy him a card, scribble Happy Birthday, Your Birth DAY Buddy, Denise and mail it. A few days later, I’d receive a card, totally preprinted and auto-penned, but I still proudly displayed it with the others. It wasn’t until years later I would appreciate that small gesture from the White House staff. Never once was asked for $3.OO or MY birthday presents.

JFK made me a Democrat. He entered the Presidential race as I entered high school and I just loved everything Camelot-y about the Kennedy family. Sadly, we never found out how the world would have turned out had he never been assassinated, but it moved me to political activism (ironically, first as a staffer for a Republican Member of the House shortly after dropping out of college).

Then came love, marriage and the baby carriage x3, so my political hobby became complicated being married to an active duty Marine and the dratted UCMJ, my mouth was duct taped for several years.

Still loved my Dems, Carter, Clinton …. then came the Political Petri-Dish Experiment failure called Obama. There is nothing traditionaly, spiritualy,compassionately or NICE about him (see: Hillary Clinton and her supporters/PUMAs) to support.

I now support Romney Democrats

A Day Without Sunshine ….

White House Press Corps circa Kennedy

….Would be missing my daily fix at the White House Dossier. Keith writes:

During the Democratic primaries in 2008, I asked a liberal friend of mine whether he was going to support Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. He thought for a second and casually responded, “Obama.”

Now who hasn’t had this conversation with an Obama supporter ? I asked him why he would support Obama over Clinton, given that they had basically the same proposals but she had more experience and we knew so much more about her.

His answer, in essence, was: “Obama!”

We all have our favorite daily drive-bys, WHD is one of my favorites for no other reason than to see what time Obama gets out of bed in the morning/starts his day (average: noonish). Take THAT you hard working tax paying working stiffs ! Just shut up! <—-2012 Democratic Party talking point, FYI.

Since 2008, my favorite daily blog visits include heavy populations of former Dems wondering what happened to their party of ideas and compassion. Many are on my blog roll, please visit them and lend them support. Like minds and all that stuff reflected in the tags.

Oh, and I think Jeremy Hoop is Hawt:

He had me at Jackass chasing a dumb Pachyderm 🙂

“Lynn’s Little Nest” (Newsbird 2.0) is Here !!!!

God Bless America and her Nests.

LynnII writes her first post:

In honor of Birdie and her hard work and effort. Birdie gave me a huge opportunity when she invited me to edit her blog. I was truly honored by the invite. I racked my brain to think of a new and different name but, kept coming back to this one. It felt friendly and warm, the way Birdie and all her little Birdies made me feel. Hopefully you will feel the same.

Still working on issues and kinks but, hopefully those will be ironed out soon. My promise to all who comment here is to make this as good a site as Birdie made hers. With your help and suggestions we can all learn and grow.

Please join me in Welcoming her to Bloggyland over at Lynn’s Little Nest

newsbird.worpress.com is no longer available

The MO Birdie Intervention Team still has much work to do

“the authors have deleted this blog”

Sadly, the words that greeted me last night when arriving for my daily fix of all things birdie and the snarkilicous birdettes.

I’ve heard from Lynn and she too is unaware of what happened, has contacted Birdie and waiting to hear back.

Thought I’d start a post to give refuge to those of you awaiting news. Or something 😀

2012 Kentucky Derby Day: Remembering 2008’s Eight Belles


She was beaten by Big Brown. Moments later she was humanely euthanized on the track after suffering broken ankles in both her front legs. A metaphor for Hillary’s failed campaign ? So the only girls running in big 2008 events, Hillary was indeed the lucky one. <—- H/T Oswald at The Crawdad Hole

Sidebar: Today I bet $4 on Take Charge Indy (15-1), thinking great sign Indy’s will take back the country in November AND my friend Anna Belle’s from Indy. Phhhttt, he not only lost, but was disqualified? A horse named Give Me Another won. Another term? Crap.
