Christine O-Donnell Stomps Her Feet – Right Out of Her Interview

Little kids are known for crying and stomping their feet in resistance to being asked/told to do something they don’t want to do. Sometimes they will run away to another part of the yard/house to avoid carrying out the parent’s wishes.

Christine O’Donnell offered a perfect demonstration of this childish action in her interview with Piers Morgan (CNN) on Wednesday night (8/17/11).

Of course, instead of crying, she accused her interviewer of being “rude” (this is the ‘grown-up’ way of doing things).

And then she ran away.

According to an article on the Christian Science Monitor website, this entire scene was very possibly ‘staged’ … “in the sense that O’Donnell and her publicists had discussed what might happen, and agreed she might bolt if the talk reached a certain point.”

In any case, if she wanted attention, she certainly got it. Just like a little kid.

I would hate to think how she would react to unpleasant questions if she ever decided to run for President.

Waaahhhh!

Michele Bachmann Defines Submissiveness

michele-bachmann-submission

In the recent Republican presidential debate held in Iowa on August 11, 2011, one of the moderators asked U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn) about her 2006 remarks that she studied tax law because her husband told her to, even though she hated the idea. At the time Bachmann said, “But the Lord said, ‘Be submissive. Wives, you are to be submissive to your husbands.'”

He then asked her, “As president, would you be submissive to your husband?”

Bachmann paused for a few moments and then responded with what was, essentially, a non-answer:

Marcus and I will be married for 33 years this September 10th. I’m in love with him. I’m so proud of him,” she said. “And both he and I — what submission means to us, if that’s what your question is, it means respect. I respect my husband. He’s a wonderful, godly man, and a great father. And he respects me as his wife. That’s how we operate our marriage. We respect each other. We love each other.”

The key words in her answer are … “what submission means … is respect.”

Apparently Michele is unaware that submission and respect have two quite different meanings:

Definition of Respect

  • An attitude of admiration or esteem
  • Regard highly; think much of
  • A feeling of deep admiration for someone or something elicited by their abilities, qualities, or achievements.

Definition of Submissive

  • Characterized by tendencies to yield to the will or authority of others
  • Inclined or willing to submit to orders or wishes of others
  • Of, tending towards, or indicating submission, humility, or servility
  • Synonyms: obedient, subordinate, subservient

Michele, you weren’t asked how much you and and your husband respect each other. You were asked: “As president, would you be submissive to your husband?”

In 2006, you apparently subscribed to these bible instructions. It would seem you have now, for expediency’s sake, chosen to sweep this belief under the rug.

How typical of a politician.

Go President Obama!

Well, the 2008 presidential elections are finally over and, in my opinion, the Best Man won.

There is one thing that bothers me, though. Everyone is making a big deal of the fact that we have elected an African-American to the presidency.

Let’s back up for a minute. 

What we have done is chosen an AMERICAN to be our president — a man who just happens to be of African descent and who just happens to have a darker skin tone than some other Americans.

We simply cannot allow ourselves to get all hung up on Barack Obama’s ethnic background. Instead, we need to see him for what he is — a man who promises to take us to new places, who promises to provide us with new opportunities, who promises … well, let him speak for himself:

“This is our time: to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth – that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism and doubt and those who tell us that we can’t, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people:

Yes We Can. Thank you, God bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.”

GO PRESIDENT OBAMA!
