Sunday GOP Presidential Round-Up and Open Thread

Posted on October 30, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

First, let’s start with “also ran” Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), who “wouldn’t do anything” for the children of undocumented immigrants. 

At a campaign stop in Iowa, a Latino college student asked the presidential hopeful what she would do to the children of undocumented immigrants. Bachmann reiterated her hard-line stance that the federal government should not grant them citizenship and said she “would not do anything” for them.”Their parents are the ones who brought them here … they did not have the legal right to come to the United States,” she said. “We do not owe people who broke our laws to come into the country. We don’t owe them anything.”

When the subject turned to immigration at another campaign stop that day, Bachmann suggested passing a law that would bar citizenship to children born in the U.S. to parents who are undocumented immigrants. “We’ve got to end this anchor baby program,” she said.

Next up, a Mitt Romney pile-on.

Ron Paul: ‘Time will tell’ if Romney is the next Dukakis.

Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace: “Mitt Romney is ducking our invitation”.

Wallace had to settle for Texas Gov. Rick Perry (another dismal “also ran” at this point), who told Fox News Sunday today that “unlike Romney, I am a consistent Conservative”.


As one could guess, Mitt Romney is leading the latest GOP polls in Iowa, along with Herman Cain, who is reported to have said that Planned Parenthood is “Planned Genocide”, targeting black communities

The New York Sun reported on one of the ads that focused on abortion:“Black babies are terminated at triple the rate of white babies,” a female announcer in one of the ads says, as rain, thunder, and a crying infant are heard in the background. “The Democratic Party supports these abortion laws that are decimating our people, but the individual’s right to life is protected in the Republican platform. Democrats say they want our vote. Why don’t they want our lives?”

Another similar ad featured Herman Cain’s voice:

“If you make a little mistake with one of your ‘hos,’ you’ll want to dispose of that problem tout suite, no questions asked,” one of the men says.

“That’s too cold. I don’t snuff my own seed,” the other replies.

“Maybe you do have a reason to vote Republican,” the first man says.

This morning, Herman Cain appeared on CBS’s “Face The Nation”, where he clarified his position on abortion and discouraged smoking. Host and cancer survivor Bob Schieffer tore hard into Cain over his most recent ad, featuring campaign manager Mark Block smoking a cigarette.


For those who haven’t seen it, this might well be one of the weirdest and creepiest political ads ever: 


Perry speaking in New Hampshire yesterday 
At the Conservative group “Cornerstone Action Dinner”

Oh my.


Remember the Alamo… 
…was fought in part to defend Texans’ right to own slaves.

Perry: Ending Iraq War “Irresponsible, Puts Our Kids’ Live in Jeopardy” (0.00 / 0)
Yeah. Because our soldiers are far safer thousands of miles from home fighting an illegal war.

Pat Buchanan spouting off
“OWS is going to end very, very badly”, states that the protesters are going to start getting violent and attacking police.

Cain and sexual harrassment.
Reported this evening by Politico.

This story will get bigger
Nothing MSM loves more, than letting themselves get distracted away from policy issues by the shiny, rattling keys of any sort of sexually-toned scandal.
