The Google Purge and General Patraeus


It takes me a little time to deal with the emotions that bubble up when something does not go my way. I even got into a spat when Tom said after the election that locusts were next here at the Jersey Shore. I shot back saying I would kick his ass if I saw even one locust and that, even though he is a far more accomplished brawler, I would win because in Jersey we don't fight fair. NJ is more often than not ahead of the curve.

Obama took the middle in this election because " they used a guy who was really good at selling groceries to women who just want to feel good about their purchase." They selected their audience and delivered a message tailored "in a personalized way, like in one of those really nice bags you get from Victoria's Secret delivered while you're watching Sons of Anarchy" (Jax really cares about Tara!).  The Elite that Knows Me gets information. They use it like a weapon.

Somebody somewhere got the goods on General Petraeus. A search algorithm for a man having an affair has got to be easy pickins for information dealers. But I see a pattern here. Jeremiah Wright threatened in 2008 to go on a public campaign that may have damaged the Obama campaign.  Then came Elizabeth Payne, and Wright was silent.

Information that came from the military industrial complex during the election was not helpful to the Obama campaign.  As sequester approaches, we are seeing a purge of the administration moderates.  My roots here in Jersey, I think, give me a little extra sensitivity in spotting those who don't fight fair.  I see a pattern here.  

So as sequester approaches, think about this question:  "What would Carrie Bradshaw do?"  That is all that is holding this administration in check.

Posturing has started for the 2014 cycle...Hiliary needs a few yrs to distance herself from this mess in prep fr 2016.. Eric is surprising but BHO rode him for 4 good years and Eric does have alot of baggage with F&F around his neck..
I just dont think BHO has a kinder gentler side.So I see a "bad moon arising'".
And to Carrie...She would find a half latino half black transvestite Mr. Big to run in 2016.

American polling is broken. We had to do it on our own in unprecedented ways,” he said. “[The] most important validator in how someone was going to vote in Ohio was their neighbors and friends. We went with organizers who were from there and knew their neighborhood[s]. Romney brought in outsiders well after the primary who didn't know the lay of the land."

We got whooped good.Repubs have never learned how to fight. I must admit its easier to have the dems ground game when their voters are more apt to be jammed into city blocks vs conservs who are in middle of Montana. Hard to do local operations when your nex t neighbor might be a 1/4 mile away as in me.
This election has deflated me. I cant say I want a scorched earth policy but it has focused me on a few close friends and their kids. And ME..If Im still here in 4 Ill look around but until then its me me me . Every man for themselves.

Power of Carrie Bradshaw

Pathetic. I thought with Oprah network floundering that maybe women had started breaking away from all that..Im pathetic for thinking that. It could honestly be months before im back to abynormal again....

Ill watch Marc Steyn and see if he can recover ...

I hold a federal security clearance for my job and let me tell you, that clearance requires you to mind your p's and q's. Gen. Petreaus has an incredible mind and his departure is a loss.

Ok. Im back to channeling Steyn....Ikaika's sultan has a good piece. So good it makes me want to cut my wrists.Toss in election results in California(where repubs wont matter ever again) and changing demographics in Texas and the repubs nationally could go the way of T Rex...
I know dont think even a Rubio can swing enough latinos/minorities to get the WH ever again...He will be seen as a latino John-John wanting to take their handouts away..

Thus I say the repubs are toast...Forever...

Freerepublic has a link to a weekly standard article : Petreus says he did not give any orders to stand down in benghazi. getting interesting. Perhaps Petreus could
cause more harm on the outside...
