Just last evening , the Illinois Primary wrapped up and the clear
winner of the Republican contest was Mitt Romney...former Governor
Governor Mitt Romney - In A Familiar
What Is He Thinking Here?..."Hello, My
Name Is Mitt Romney...I Am Very Successful...Can I Somehow
Appeal To You To Vote For Me?"
Romney's victory last evening reminds The
Raptor of the the classic American story of Jack Johnson.
Johnson was the Boxing Heavyweight Champion back around 1910 when
fight promoters brought James Jefferies out of retirement to beat
Johnson. Johnson's crime was simple...he was a black man
enjoying success in a white man's world. Jefferies was
regarded as a great fighter and he was widely referred to as "The
Great White Hope". Meanwhile, Johnson continued to live a life of
luxury and extravagance and made it a habit to keep a number of
hot, attractive white women is his stable....grrrrrrrrrr!
Now, over 100 years later, Governor Romney
stands poised as The Great White Hope of this generation. He
talks the talk, and he walks the walk. He has built an
excellent campaign. Very soon his campaign will arrive here
in Pennsylvania along with the campaigns of Rick Santorum, former
Senator from Pennsylvania, as well as the campaigns of former
Speaker Of The House, Newt Gingrich and Congressman Ron Paul (R,
As a group, the GOP hopefuls are speaking in
a unified voice about how bad things are here in America...how the
economy is awful...how President Obama has allowed gas prices to
rise...how core Democratic positions like green energy and
environmental conservation are killing jobs here at home while
evil regimes like China thrive.
Romney is particular is touting his business
acumen as proof positive that a Romney Administration will make
America great again...The Raptor has heard this tune before and in
reality it's a broken record. It seems to happen during
every National Election Cycle as the "Haves" wail and gnash their
teeth and cry crocodile tears on how miserable it is here in
America. The GOP cry daily about President Obama's Socialist
agenda. The GOP cry about how President Obama was a community
organizer....yeah, The Raptor remembers how Rudolph Juliani
sneered out that epithet during the 2008 GOP convention.
Sure, America has some issues...the most
serious being the "Medicare Entitlement" problem...just yesterday,
Congressman Paul Ryan (R, WI), who is Chairman of The House Budget
Committee, trotted out an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal.
His well written analysis indicated that without a doubt, if the
Washington Pols don't act now, debt as a share of Gross Domestic
Product will reach over 800% by the year 2070. According to Ryan's
analysis, at present the American National Public Held Debt is at
73% of GDP. Hmmmmmmmm....that sounds pretty bad!
So, Congressman Ryan is proposing to lower
the Corporate Tax Rate from 35% to a more competitive 25% and some
how eliminate special interest loop-holes....The Raptor has no
idea what special interest loopholes are but I sure would like to
have a few. And The GOP seem to want to lower individual tax
It appears that The Great White Hope is
prepared to say or do anything to get elected. When he was
in Alabama he ate some grits...while here in Pennsylvania he will
wolf down a Chessesteak Sandwich in Philly and a Permani Bros.
Hero in Pittsburgh...naturally The Great White Hope probably won't
be able to visit Erie but without a doubt he will show up in
Butler, trying to get the support of Congressman Mike Kelly.
Congressman Kelly is certainly in a
predicament. You see...he comes from the Butler area...the
same area that Candidate Rick Santorum comes from. Former
Senator Santorum certainly has an excellent chance to win the
Pennsylvania Primary. Consider that his principal
strategist, John Brabender comes from Erie Pa. Even though
Senator Santorum got waxed by Bob Casey is 2006 it's with in the
realm of possibility the Casey could have beat any one that year
as the Republican brand had been damaged by the Bush
Administration's foreign policy peccadilloes.
|Congressman Mike Kelly
||Senator Rick Santorum
Will Congressman Kelly support Santorum?
He is on the fence as The Raptor writes this. Romney is
obviously the front runner but Kelly would sure look bad if he
supported Romney and Santorum pulled out a win anyhow...and what
about the Pennsylvania GOP? Are they going to throw Santorum under
a bus? Probably not. So the race may continue and The
Great White Hope will have to retool as he continues his slow,
steady rise towards his biggest fight...against a powerful black
man who is despised by 38% of Americans.

his wing man in the endeavor.

Rick Santorum (R) Pennsylvania Speaking To Some Supporters
With An Approving Look From Foster Freiss
What Friess said is pretty cool..."On this
contraceptive thing, my gosh, itís so inexpensive. You know, back
in my days, they used Baer Aspirin for contraceptives. The gals
put it between their knees and it wasnít that costly." I
think Mitchell and other "gals" who were reacting to his offensive
remark probably were afraid to opine on what Mr. Friess really
meant to say.
The Raptor is only guessing here but
according to Friess, if gals would hold the aspirin between their
knees, then they would not be able to spread open the legs in
order to "Wango Tango" it's too bad no one registered shock
and dismay over this...
Mr. Santorum, formerly a Senator from the
great state of Pennsylvania (home of Joe Paterno) was non-plussed
during his mea culpa on Fox News last night. He stated
unequivocally that he is not responsible for everything a
supporter of his says...oh really Rick?...gee it sure has become a
pain that the American Political Process has been overtaken by
limp dicks like Foster Friess and Sheldon Adelson who set up
"Super PACS" and then run their own campaign without having to say
they are sorry. Mr. Friess is kinda creepy and as a result Senator
Santorum is creepy by association.
The Raptor likes to hold onto certain grudges
and one of them is a court case which developed about 10 years ago
in Dover, Pennsylvania. The Dover School Board attempted to
thrust the teaching of "Intelligent Design" as a alternative
curriculum to the "Theory Of Evolution". Fortunately, the
Board lost and we are a better nation as a result. It should
be noted that Senator Santorum was a huge proponent of this
Intelligent Design Agenda and as a result his mental capabilities
Mr. Santorum's message...centered on family
values and strong religious affiliation is wonderful and it is
heartwarming to see a man have the courage to stand up for his
convictions. Unfortunately, in order to stand up, Santorum
has to rely on fucktards like Friess to help him promote an
agenda. Gawd, can you imagine a Presidency under Rick
Santorum/Foster Friess? Whew! looks like Santorum's 15 minutes of
fame is about to end...
