Happy George Washington's Birthday!

For those of you that don't know, the official Federal holiday today is George Washington's Birthday, as it should be. The official holiday is not president's day. Let's give President Washington the honor and respect that he earned and deserves. I realize that media and pop culture switched it at some point to make it about shopping and gigantic sales, but officially it is still George Washington's Birthday and it would be nice to honor the great man and Father of our country the way the holiday was intended instead of insulting his legacy by calling it president's day. It's a disservice to the history of our country and to our children who are already the victim's of revisionist history in so many ways. I hope all of you will take the lead and refer to the actual Federal holiday as intended, George Washington's Birthday.

Did Santorum question Obama's Christian Values?

Columbus, Ohio. February 18, 2012.

It would seem not. Yet some MSM news outlets are in a frenzy claiming that Rick Santorum questioned Obama's Christian values. The AP printed it like this:
Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator known for his social conservative views, said Obama's agenda is based on "some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology."
And the Washington Post had this:
Obama believes in a “phony ideology — not a theology based on the Bible,” Santorum said, according to Steve Peoples of the Associated Press. [later corrected to "phony theology."]
Below is a video of the remarks in context. They were in reference to Obama's political ideology as it relates to global warming and Obama's deliberate attempt to send our energy prices skyrocketing, alluding to Liberalism being the theology behind it, which is not a theology of the Bible. It was more of a compare and contrast which, to the MSM, isn't quite as exciting as charging Santorum with attacking Obama's Christian values.

Doug Preisse Responds to New GOP Rule for Primaries

Columbus, Ohio. February 7, 2011.

I caught up with Doug Preisse, Chairman, Republican Executive Committee, at the Newt rally Tuesday night and asked him about the GOP not welcoming new Central Committee members, especially Tea Party candidates. Here's his response that includes discussion of the new rule change for the Primaries that the GOP is trying to enforce. Many feel this rule, that only candidates for the GOP committee who voted in the last three Republican primaries will be eligible to sit on the party's 66-member Central Committee, is targeting Tea Party candidates. Notice Preisse doesn't actually answer the last question about his commitment to those who may not be seated. I guess it's implied.
