Why Scott Walker Will Not Be Romney’s Running Mate

"Choosing Walker as the VP nominee would be just the sort of desperate short-term political maneuver that the Romney campaign is supposed to be trying to avoid in its selection process. Is Walker qualified to be next in line to the Presidency after just two years in statewide office? No, he isn’t. Romney has no foreign policy experience to speak of, and adding Walker to the ticket would do nothing to balance this. Walker’s record does not compare favorably to those of many of the other possible VP nominees. Selecting him would be a transparent attempt to generate enthusiasm and interest in the Republican ticket with no thought for his ability to serve as President if necessary.

Assuming Walker wins as expected, he would also bring significant baggage with him as a possible running mate. Whatever other political advantages Walker might theoretically have to offer, it usually isn’t a good idea to choose someone with any hint of scandal associated with him. Politically, it doesn’t matter whether Walker has done anything wrong or not. Questions about Walker’s aides would be an ongoing distraction for the campaign. If it turns out that Walker is implicated in some wrongdoing, his presence on the ticket would become an instant liability. Romney would be widely perceived to have blundered in one of the more significant decisions of his campaign. Putting Walker on the ticket is a good example of a high-risk, low-reward move, and it doesn’t seem likely that Romney would do that."

Syria’s Insurrection Is Not America’s Fight

"Safe zones" and airstrikes are acts of war.

"In pushing for U.S. military intervention in Syria–arming the insurgents and using U.S. air power to “create safe zones” for anti-regime forces “inside Syria’s borders”–the Washington Post invokes “vital U.S. interests” that are somehow imperiled there.

Exactly what these vital interests are is left unexplained.

For 40 years, we have lived with a Damascus regime led by either Bashar Assad or his father, Hafez Assad. Were our “vital interests” in peril all four decades?

In 1991, George H.W. Bush recruited the elder Assad into his Desert Storm coalition that liberated Kuwait. Damascus sent 4,000 troops. In gratitude, we hosted a Madrid Conference to advance a land-for-peace deal between Assad and Israel.

It failed, but it could have meant a return of the Golan Heights to Assad and Syria’s return to the eastern bank of the Sea of Galilee.

We could live with that, but cannot live with Bashar?

Comes the reply: the reason is the Houla massacre, where more than 100 Syrians were slaughtered, mostly women and children, the most horrid atrocity in a 15-month war that has taken 10,000 lives.

We Americans cannot stand idly by and let this happen.

That massacre was indeed appalling, and apparently the work of rogue militia aligned with the regime. But in 1982, Bashar’s father rolled his artillery up to the gates of Hama and, to crush an insurrection by the Muslim Brotherhood, fired at will into the city until 20,000 were dead.

What did America do? Nothing.

In Black September, 1970, Jordan’s King Hussein used artillery on a Palestinian camp, killing thousands and sending thousands fleeing into Lebanon. During Lebanon’s civil war from 1975 to 1990, more than 100,000 perished. In the 1980s, Iraq launched a war on Iran that cost close to a million dead.

We observed, content that our enemies were killing one another.

In 1992, Islamists in Algeria won the first round of voting and were poised to win the second. Democracy was about to produce a result undesired by the Western democracies. So Washington and Paris gave Algiers a green light to prevent the Islamists from coming to power. That Algerian civil war cost scores of thousands dead.

If Arab and Muslim peoples believe Americans are hypocrites who cynically consult their strategic interests before bemoaning Arab and Muslim victims of terror and war, do they not have a point?"

Massive Democrat voter fraud in WI.

Voter Fraud Explodes in Wisconsin; Eye Witnesses Speak Out
Tuesday, June 05, 2012
Pundit Press ^| 6/5/12 | Aurelius

From students using class schedules to "prove" that they live in Wisconsin (but not who they actually are), to multiple accounts of people being "bused" in, dozens of accounts of Democrat and Union attempts to commit voter fraud in Wisconsin have hit the news. One town even has turnout that was reportedly six times the votes normally cast in a "heavy" participation election- and that was at 10:30 am in the morning.

That's exactly what the South was trying to do.
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

* Slavery was not Justice.
* Enslaving fellow citizens did not ensure domestic tranquility.
* Slavery was not promoting the general welfare for the citizens.
* Slavery did not secure the blessings of liberty to those extant citizens
and their posterity.

Idiot.

"That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,...."

* Governments are instituted among men ...just not black men, idiot.

When those grey uniforms attacked Fort Sumter, all further casualties they suffered were of their own making. The same was true from the North's decision to engage the South.

For you to lay blame on Lincoln's shoulders for all Civil War deaths is a burst of juvenile naivete in a JHS history class.

How old *are* you anyways? Seriously?
