And it begins! I have a bit of history with podcasts and thought that I could make up for my lack of posting recently by finally bringing a one man podcast to my blog! This week I’m talking about the first debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney, and how silly the excuses for his performance are.
It’s a 30 minute podcast and so should be a quick listen! Give it a go, and spread it around to the people who might like it!

I made this graphic up to demonstrate something I’ve noticed from people who have been criticizing Mitt Romney both on Twitter and in the media. I think it makes my point on how relatively tame Mitt Romney’s sins seem to be, especially in comparison to the guy we already have in office.
It’s no secret I am not a fan of new left wing sensation Sandra Fluke. I want to explain to you specifically why. It’s not because I’m a white Republican that wishes to control womens’ vaginas (I’m not). I’m fond of facts, so let me present them, so I can tell you why there is indeed a war on women despite her.
Nobody likes the anti-Islamic movie Innocence of Muslims. If you can even call it a movie. The current incarnation of it is a 15 minute trailer on Youtube that I’m pretty certain I could produce better.
Innocence of Muslims, in whatever form it exists, was released months ago. The idea that it actually is responsible for any of the mobbing and rioting is silly, since its quite clear that this was a protest organized on 9/11. Whoever started the protest needed something to rally the mobs with, and the threat of a movie that insults the Prophet Muhammed was all that was needed to anger the poor, uneducated Egyptian mobs that now demand its “banning”. A movie they have never seen, have no opportunity to ever see, and are rioting over only on hearsay. In fact, the reason for the protests is general anti-Americanism. Some random video just happens to be a convienent excuse to make them look justified. So they “demand” a banning of the movie.
There’s a lot of confusion and anger in American politics right now about who is responsible for what conservatives are somewhat mockingly referring to as the “Arab Autumn”, a play on the supposed post-terrorism awakening known as the Arab Spring that many people, including those in the Obama administration, attribute a large amount of reduction in Muslim support of terrorism over the last several months. The Arab Spring was largely considered responsible for the ousting, exile, and eventual murder of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, a leader who although certainly did not treat all citizens the way we would have wanted him to, ultimately was an ally of the United States for thirty years. Our foreign policy at this time was, perhaps in retrospect unfortunately, to abandon Mubarak to the fates that may be. The Obama administration instead reported that “the United States stands with the people of Egypt”. Which I guess was always a given, but the message of the statement was more so “Whatever you guys want to do, we’re all down for. Yo.”
I’ve said this on Twitter and I’ll say it again: no one is happy about what’s happening to our embassies in the middle east. If there is an American who is celebrating any of this, they’re someone who justifies violence for their religion or policy, and in my opinion certainly no friend to this country. (more…)
