A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

How to keep B.O. & the boys in power.

Washington, DC ( -- Haley Barbour is the latest potential Republican presidential candidate to suggest that social issues like abortion should be taken off the table while making the economy the main focus. Despite the fact that polls show Americans strongly oppose the pro-abortion health care law, Barbour says fiscal issues should take priority.

At a breakfast with reporters this morning sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, the Mississippi governor said those who focus on social issues like abortion are taking the GOP off message this election cycle.

“Any issue that takes people’s eye off of unemployment, job creation, economic growth, taxes, spending, deficits, debts is taking your eye off the ball,” Barbour said, according to a Daily Caller report.

“But if somebody goes to campaign for governor candidate x, I would hope that somebody would stay focused on the issues that matter to the campaign: jobs, the economy, taxes, spending, debt, deficits,” Barbour continued. “You run down rabbit trails, you're wasting— you're using up valuable resources that could be used to talk to people about what they care about.”

He said his advice is primarily for candidates seeking election in November, even though polling data makes it clear that Republicans, the overwhelming majority of whom are pro-life, are much more enthused about voting than their largely pro-abortion Democratic counterparts.

Barbour was asked about the "truce" potential presidential candidate Mitch Daniels, the Indiana governor, called for on social issues that quickly got him in trouble with pro-life advocates.

Though Barbour is strongly pro-life and has signed pro-life legislation, he said he agreed with Daniels' sentiment, which Daniels partly walked back in a subsequent interview.

Barbour said a candidate's stance on abortion “ain’t going to change anybody’s vote this year."

During the breakfast, The Hill reports Barbour said he has not thought much about running for president and wouldn't make a decision until at least after the elections.

“I'm not giving serious thought to running for president until after the November election,” Barbour said, adding, “I expect this to be a very wide open nomination contest."

He has said he is aware that he may have limited appeal as a presidential candidate because he is seen as a southern conservative "bubba" who is overweight and possesses a heavy drawl accent.

But, if Barbour begins telling pro-life voters they need to take a back seat and that the issue of abortion won't determine how they vote, his potential campaign may be dead before it begins.
(End of story. My commentary follows.)

By discounting issues such as abortion, gay marriage, euthanasia and embryonic stem cell research, Republicans can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this November. Ditto for 2012.

Sorry, I'll eat boiled ham hocks & beans regularly and not think twice about it if that diet is a direct result of electing a strong pro-life, conservative values, politician.

Steak? Prime rib? Hey it all looks the same when it passes out the other end. BFD.

Just how bad can this economy really be when our beloved First Lady is mounting a campaign against childhood obesity? I've seen really poor people in real Third World nations. Our "poor" don't even come close to their desperation.

But just watch as the GOP acts as clueless as their Democratic counterparts and start pandering to the cultural elites.

Defeat from the jaws of victory, yep. Clowns like this may make it happen yet.

Looks like PP has been busy buying Judases in the GOP. PP knows that the DNC is done for, so to keep their political support they must have committed a lot of bucks to the campaigns of these traitors, baby killers, animals. In war, these traitors will be executed by firing squad. They just sicken me with their sell out talking points about the economy. Hell will be filled with these children of the devil.

Abortion's not going to change anyone's vote??? Well, it changed mine! If the right to life can't be understood, then all the political claims that candidate stands for are bunk! They're standing on a crumbling platform.
I believe you can see a link between failed fiscal policies and failed morality. Not only is it biblical, its been proven by Obama and the like. When people regard life as something to be protected, and something for which we are responsible, everything else in life falls into place.
Most families in the U.S. have had to tighten their budgets in order to care for one another. The pro death house and senate? They've spent already over 84 billion in failed stimulus (inc. the latest proposal...) If you don't get life, and why its important to protect the next generation, then you don't get why you shouldn't expect that same next generation to foot the bill for your failures...
