My Humble Opinion

Hey everyone. Our state Primaries will be this coming Tuesday and I thought I would share a few of my opinions on our Presidential contenders before I go cast my vote. Just political opinions offered free of charge to you. It really must be your lucky day! Before reading this I have to include the following disclaimer:

The opinions below are the opinions of Amy only, and are not necessarily the opinions of her fabulous husband Jeremy, although he really should be agreeing with his wife about stuff like this. Amy is a Southern Baptist, Christian, conservative Republican who is very anti-Democrat. If you don't agree with her opinions, deal with it. That's why we live in America, and that's why we vote.

Hillary Rodham Clinton. What can I say about her? I can't put into words how much I detest this woman. The only leadership position she has ever held has been to be Senator from a little state up north. Being a First Lady...Puh-lease. Other than picking out a china pattern, what difference does that make. Her and her husband have snookered their way into the good graces of those unfortunate enough to live in Blue States. Let me be clear, I am not opposed to A woman running the White House, however, I am seriously opposed to THIS woman running the White House. Mark my words, if she gets elected as President, our country will go nowhere but down. I wonder how many people have gotten on her bad side, only to end up swimming with concrete shoes? If I go missing after posting this, you know the first person to start talking too...

Barack Hussein Obama. Can Americans really vote into office someone whose middle name is Hussein? I know it isn't his fault, but seriously...Hussein. I also have concerns with his religious affliliation. His Dad was a Muslim, and apparently his church is very tied to supporting Africa, which also has it's roots in Islam. Although Oprah is a huge supporter, and we all know O has tons of fans, I can't help but hope that Oprah loses some steam on this one. Hollywood is apparently in love with Obama, so that right there should tell you something. Judging by his picture, he seriously needs to hold back on bleaching his teeth. They probabably glow in the dark.
Now for my real contenders...
Mitt Romney. Probably the most moral out of all the people running. He is Morman, which may be a little hard for some to digest. Definitely a family man, which I really appreciate, especially with politcians these days. Very good at business and seems to know alot about the economy. I don't think he has a chance, but he does seem like a really nice guy, and I line up with him on several issues.

John McCain. Former POW. Nuff said. This man could probably beat the crap out of any other nominees even though he is about 80 years old. I think he is on a roll right now, and will probably clinch the Republican nomination easily. I think he would make a good President, and certainly has a good background considering we are in the middle of a war right now.

Mike Huckabee, the former Southern Baptist Minister and Governor of Arkansas. I LOVE him. I line up with him all 99% of the issues, and he will definitely be getting my vote on Tuesday. He is Christian, and conservative, and for me, that seals the deal. I also really like the sound of "President Huckabee." It sounds fun to say, and seems like something out of a Mark Twain book. Oh wait..That's Huck Finn. Never mind.

I think that when the general election rolls around we will see...


Who do you think will end as President? All I know for sure is that if you don't vote, you don't have the right to complain, so get out the Vote!!

I'm disappointed Mitt dropped out of the race, and not just because I'm Mormon. I was a McCain fan until Romney was winning West VA in the Super Tuesday Primary and McCain, knowing he wouldn't win it, sent his supporters to side with Huckabee. I don't know if this was because of Romney's religious affiliation or just because they thought he wouldn't make a good president, but it was dirty politics. In business, that would be considered unethical. Huckabee has made one too many cheap shots at my religion to support him, but I do appreciate the rest of his Christian values. I just wish he were a little more accepting of Mitt's religion, as all true Christians should be. We all believe in Jesus. Maybe McCain will choose Romney to run with him as VP. I think they would make a powerhouse team...McCain on the military side and Romney on the economic side. But, Republican as I am, I think this race belongs to the Democrats. Too many people in this country feel like we need a drastic change in foreign policy, public policy, and economic policy, and electing a Democrat right now would be drastic. It will be an interesting race. I appreciated your opinions of all the candidates..very cool!

Amy, you are a terrific writer! I especially enjoyed your comments about Hillary!

As a former citizen of New York, I aploogize. Yes, it's true, I lived in that little northern state. It's embarrassing. Not only do I KNOW people who put her in office, I am RELATED to people who support her. Sorry.

I wasn't born in the South, but I got here as fast as I could.

My first impression of Huckabee came in July, by reading an anecdote about him in the Bible study, Experiencing God. Good man.

One last comment: Jackson is ADORABLE!
