Colorado Fires vs. Texas Fires

Posted by madjillmom on June 29, 2012

I am concerned about the emotional, financial, and ecological disaster happening in Colorado these past few weeks.  It is heartbreaking that so many are losing so much.  After ignoring the issue for a few weeks, Obama has gone to Colorado to hold hands and praise the responders, feel the pain of the victims, and have a few photo ops.  I wonder if he is going to a fundraiser somewhere nearby.

Contrast this with last year’s bad fire in Bastrop, TX.  Wikipedia quote:

On Sunday, September 4, 2011, a firestorm known as the Bastrop County Complex Fire engulfed Bastrop, Texas and by September 30 had destroyed 1,645 homes, burned 34,068 acres, and killed two people.[5] This fire is now regarded as the most catastrophic wildfire in Texas history.[6]

I checked to see if Obama came down to Bastrop and held hands, consoled victims, had some photo ops or something similar.  He did come to Austin, a few miles away for a fundraiser.  He and his administration did not issue disaster declarations for the Texas fires until months after the request.

So honestly, what is the difference.  Obama has no hope of winning Texas in November.  Even if he gives away Dream Act goodies to lots of illegals.  Obama does need to win Colorado in November.  That is the difference.

Rick Perry Says Adios

Posted by madjillmom on January 19, 2012

Don’t tell me an Aggie can’t read the handwriting on the wall.  Maybe he’s a little slow, but he got the message. Come on back to Texas.

I don’t really know what to think about his endorsement of Gingrich.  Still trying to process it.

Vulture Capitalist

Posted by madjillmom on January 12, 2012

Shame on Perry and Gingrich for slamming Romney as being a vulture capitalist.  Both should know what happens without vultures.  You are up to your ass in decomposing flesh.  In fact, if Romney was a vulture capitalist then he has some good skills that are really in need.

Think of it.  Romney took over nearly bankrupt companies. He then reorganized them, cut out benefits, slimmed  them down.  In some cases the companies survived and in some cases the companies died.  He may get the chance to take over our inefficient and bankrupt federal government.  He will slim it down, cut out the fat, eliminate benefits, cut stupid programs.  He will have to cut the over-promised and under-funded pensions of government workers.  Maybe he can get the government to live off less than it collects in taxes, thus producing a “profit”.  I know, PROFIT is a bad word to Obama. Also, note that Romney didn’t do this with taxpayer’s money like Obama did for GM, Solyndra, etc.

If Romney has this type of experience, I would consider it a feature, not a problem for him.
