Westbound and Down

The Tygrrrr Express made it’s way from Birmingham to Hotlanta to Washington DC.

I am now back in Los Angeles as of 20 minutes ago. Between my cell phone crashing, losing my charger, and my laptop working nowhere, society was spared my column for one day. Like Gloria Gaynor, I did survive.

I attended the Republican Jewish Coalition Candidate Forum, and it was spectacular. I took detailed notes, and took my picture with one of the top tier candidates. It will take me an entire week to discuss the whole event, because it was that meaningful.

For those used to rapid responses to your emails, and to your comments being approved quickly, yesterday was an aberration.

Ok, I have to be at work in 8 hours. Time to get some sleep.

Westbound and down.

Oh, and the Blo9gges Choice Awards ends in 3 days. Vote for me and have all your friends do so as well.

  1. I heard Giuliani really wowed ’em with his “purple state” plan. He may well be right. Given the current political climate, the more “conservative” a candidate may seem, the less likely they may be to win the purple states. Giuliani could very well win NJ or MI. Pandering to the Iran issue won’t play well in the nationals though. It may play well to the RJC, but the general public is not in the mood.

    You are 100% undeniably wrong on this. The issue is huge and very much on the minds of the general public.
    Every poll in creation says exactly the opposite.
    But since the apologistic left sees us as a threat to Iran instead of vice/versa, its no surprise to hear this.

    No , you are disengenuous , add them all up and divide for the average!!

    You cherry picked from one or two only.
    The list goes on to accumulate a total of almost 30 polls jersey.
    Its really dumb of you to think anyone is as dumb as you would like us to think they are.

    It is most definatly on the publics mind, you said it wasnt , plain english !\Your words support nothing but an opinion.
    Once again.

  5. The fact is that most Americans do not want another war, and they certainly don’t want one with Iran. They want diplomacy, carrots and sticks, whatever it takes – but not war. Sabre rattling on Iran is fine for the JRC, but not the general public. The GOP will pay dearly if they think otherwise.


  6. I’m sorry, but I think you were being intentionally disingenuous.


  7. micky2 says:

    You originally said;
    Pandering to the Iran issue won’t play well in the nationals though. It may play well to the RJC, but the general public is not in the mood.

    You said nothing about going to war.
    Pandering the Iran issue does not mean a candidate automatically wants war, I agree, most sane people dont want war. If a candidate wants to discuss other options the public will listen because they are in the mood. Factualy based , they are very much in the mood to hear whats on the table with concerns to Iran.
    Your reference was to the willingness of the public to discuss or listen to topics on the issue via the candidates platform.
    So stop dancing and weaving and dodging, you said what you said and it was false.

    And yes, you are sorry.
    And no, my proof shows you yo be disengenuous.You can keep saying over and over y
    till you’re blue in the face, it wont make it true.

  8. No Micky, your polls show that while the American people are concerned with Iran and leery of their intentions, they want diplomacy, not more inept Republican chest beating.

    God bless you are thick!!!!!!!!

    You said the public was not in the mood !!!!

    And they are concerned which shows that they ARE in the mood because otherwise they would not be so engaged !!!!

    For the second time dude ! Pull it out!

    How can you apply concern if you are not in the mood ?
    And besides that yours is ONLY YOUR OPINION !!!!
    I present FACTS to prove otherwise.
    Man o man, what is your problem ?

    Pandering is not chest beating. There are a million ways to pander.
    I never ever said anything about war or whatever.
    Just that people are more in the mood to be engaged on the subject than you are so poorly trying to convince everyone they are not.

    People are in the mood !
    When Iran comes up we all want to know what can be done !
    And nobody (except you) said a damn thing about war !

  11. Jersey McJones says:

    Micky, a majority of Americans do not want a confrontation with Iran. Period.


  12. micky2 says:

    Thats not the point sherlock.
    Do you always make up the subject as you do along ?
    Its whether they are in the mood or not, and they are in the mood to hear about it and what the candidates would do if there was a confrontation. FACT ! They all get asked at every debate.
    Wanting and needing are two different things
