Tim McGaha at Tim's Thoughtful Spot brings an extraordinary planned space journey, the first of 12 regular cargo deliveries to the International Space Station. In this case, the fact that it will soon be routine is what makes it extraordinary.
Jack Jodell, friend of the working blogger, at THE SATURDAY AFTERNOON POST, goes a few months back to what was the primary thrust of the Romney candidacy. As one talking point after another dissolved like the wicked witch of the east encountering water, the Republican candidate is becoming no more than his clothing. Jack counts the ways.
Chuck Thinks Right apparently interprets those recent Romney remarks. "From where I am sitting typing right now, white privilege means working my ass off for the privilege of struggling to pay my bills." You see, in certain circles, white folks are sure minorities don't work.
At News Corpse, Mark tells of the latest instance of the Romney campaign seizing random Obama sentences and twisting them out of context. He chronicles what has become a pattern of breitbarting Obama. It used to be a tactic. Now it seems to be all that is left of Republican strategy.
For example, YAFB at Rumproast tells us of the newest Romney attack on his opponent for saying that Washington can't be changed from the inside, but rather must be changed from the outside. The Romney opponent turns out to be the 2008 version of Mitt Romney, which Rumproast brings to us on video.
And the editing does go on. Tommy Christopher of Mediaite fame watches Governor Romney slam President Obama for an old tape circa the 1990s in which he talks about redistribution. Tommy tells us about the independent discovery of the rest of the tape. Turns out Republicans weren't quite truthful. I try to control my surprise.
It will get worse. S.W. Anderson at Oh!pinion predicts the Romney campaign will be throwing sludge like crazy. It's not speculative. The basis is what a Romney strategist says the candidate is planning. Republicans won't win in a landslide, but they hope to squeak by, winning in a mudslide.
Nancy Hanks at The Hankster brings us polls that show independent voters are the key to New Hampshire, Governor Romney is winning independents nationwide, but President Obama is winning voters in general.
Actually, it's all the fault of a hopelessly biased press. My conservative friend, T. Paine at Saving Common Sense, posts a story about a US Marine to show how the anti-Republican anti-conservative anti-Romney, extremely biased mainstream press makes things up to show that conservative Republicans are evil. He does tell us his illustration is a made up story to show the press is ... you know. Mr. Paine is a talented fellow and manages to keep any knowledge of the irony of his observation from slipping out.
Ryan at Secular Ethics expresses a degree of impatience with the casual, lazy, tough talk type of verbal attack on a President who just might know what he's doing, putting American military lives at risk when it's necessary, not as a first blustery resort.
I'm still getting my head wrapped around a top Mitt Romney foreign policy advisor cautioning us about the dangers posed by the USSR, which country hasn't existed for over two decades. Erin Nanasi of Mad Mike's America not only avoids pounding her head against the table as Liz Cheney accuses President Obama of "abandoning" Czechoslovakia, which became non-existent soon after the USSR. She offers a list of six other countries Liz Cheney can add to her list. My own suggestion would be Lilliput, the country to which Gulliver traveled. Imagine, President Obama abandoning all those Lilliputians and Czechoslovakians.
James Wigderson brings us an entertaining, well mildly entertaining, okay at least somewhat interesting, story of a public works organization that does a number of good things, has a significant budget, and doesn't actually exist.
The Heathen Republican walks us through a personal journey from religious upbringing to atheism. The primary thrust of his interesting narrative is his protest that the knowledge he received in college did not change his religious outlook, but his openness to knowledge did. Sounds quite believable to me. Heathen more typically writes based on his own contemplative conservative approach to extensive research. Just a thought. It occurs to me that occasional autobiography would provide an additional avenue. He did quite well with this instructive piece.
At Why do we have to do this, Sir? our aspiring spiritual leader explores the identity of Jesus and finds in scripture, not a biblical answer given to us, but a biblical question asked of us. Our friend will give blogging a rest for a while. We will welcome him back when he is ready.
