I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Republican Congresswoman: GOP is Looking for 'Great White Hope'


Republican Representative Lynn Jenkins of Kansas told a recent gathering that her party is seeking a "great white hope" to stand against the agenda of Democratic President Barack Obama and his party.


Jenkins was captured on videotape making the comment while discussing the future prospects of her party after it lost Congress to the Democrats and lost the White House to Obama, the nation's first black president.


A spokeswoman for Jenkins said the Congresswoman has apologized for her choice of words and didn't mean to offend anyone.  Kenny Johnston of the Kansas Democratic Party called her statement regrettable, saying she should be discussing solutions.




GOP Leader: License to Hunt Obama


Rex Rammell (R-ID) who is going to run in the May 2010 primary has said, he was just joking when he said he would buy a license to hunt President Obama.  Rammell made the comment at a Republican rally in Twin Falls.


The crowd was talking about a new program for wolf hunting where hunters must buy a wolf tag for $11.50 when a person asked Rammell a question about “Obama Tags” and Rammell responded “The Obama Tags?  We’d buy some of those.”


The Associated Press contacted Rammell on Thursday and he said, “I was just being sarcastic and see no reason to apologize for the comment.”




This sums it up: How can anyone in this day and age be in office and say something like this?  D'oh!
