What The Republicans Say And What The Republicans Do
Donald Trump, who seems to have begun a campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in order to get people to pay more attention to him, claims to have fired his top strategist, Roger Stone, because Stone “wanted to use campaign for his own publicity”.
In similar news, Rick Santorum, who told the audience during the first of two Fox News GOP presidential debates on Thursday that, “I know we have a president who wants to do whatever he wants to do, and take his pen and his phone and just tell everybody what he thinks is best, but the reason America is a great country, the reason is because our compassion is in our laws, and when we live by those laws and we treat everybody equally under the law, that’s when people feel good about being Americans, and I put forth an immigration policy that is as strong in favor of the folks who are struggling in America the most than anybody else,” accused the Fox News moderators of the debate of being “a little long winded and a little convoluted”.
Also in GOP campaign news, Carly Fiorina responded to the controversy over Donald Trump’s habit of making extremely insulting attacks against practically everyone he encounters by saying that she would be a better presidential nominee than Trump because, “We need a nominee who is going to throw every punch, not pull punches.”
Aides to the Jim Gilmore for President campaign were unable to confirm whether their candidate, after declaring that “We have to be prepared to defend the American people, prepare them for a long war,” has been briefed about the fact that the current year is 2015, not 2001.
Senator Lindsey Graham, around whom rumors have swirled that he may soon run for President ever since he declared that he is running for President, explained his policy on energy, saying, “When it comes to fossil fuels, we’re going to find more here and use less.” Apparently, Graham’s plan is to take the additional fossil fuels that will be found under his initiatives, and put them all in a gigantic vat alongside the Potomac River with a big sign on it, reading “Not For Burning”.
