Did I hear T-Paw Correctly?
During the first Republican Presidential debate, which for the most part did not reveal a whole about any of the Candidates, two things struck me. Number one, Bachmann impressed (which I certainly did not expect) and her polls numbers went up as a result. More importantly though, I learned that T-Paw is an idiot. His assertion that the U.S. is a "special" nation seemed okay, except that by it he meant that the U.S. should adopt an arrogant view of the world to mirror that "specialness." But this assertion paled in comparison to his next statement. Ol' T-Paw then told the American people that "If Brazil can have 5 percent growth, if China can have 5 percent growth, then America can have 5 percent growth." ...Right. The stunning idiocy of this statement needs to be acknowledged. Later on, overlooking his general demeanor and cowardly refusal to go after Romney's healthcare bill, which he had earlier dubbed "Obamney care," his assertion that Politicians had essentially caused the housing price bubble forced me to continue to watch the debate like it was some sort of fatal car wreck. I do not think I am being overly harsh here. The lunacy of T-Paw knows no bounds, and I hope his (mis)statements about the Economy will be dissected just as much as Romney's "flip-flopping" or Bachmann's strong performance.
