Scott Walker Food Tweets

Scott Walker Food Tweets

No other Candidate seems to care as much about what types of fast food he is eating as Scott Walker.  If you can’t remember why he is running for President at least you will know what he likes to eat on the road.

Twitter and the race for the Presidency

In Presidential Campaign on July 28, 2015 at 10:03 pm

Twitter and the race for the Presidency is an insight to how each candidate see’s themselves and more than just a glimmer as to how they think.

Scott Walker: Seems to like food the most.  He has eaten at Geno’s steaks & Pats King of Steaks, Ribs in Olivette,  Ice Cream was planned with the Romney’s, McDonalds with a pin, Blizzard Double Cheese burgers & a Beer at the Billy Goat in  Chicago.  He’s got a Coffee cup for sale which they promote endlessly which he suggests drinking coffee from at various stops.  He will need a new belt soon. He’s got a Book which he is hyping!  He’s excited to be in every state he visit, which is rather boring without a photo or info.  He wants everyone to follow his wife #TonetteWalker which the more it’s pushed the less likely anyone is to sign up.   In case you missed it, not only is he trying to run for the Presidency of the United States, but he is hawking a book which you can buy directly through his web Site.  So far his Twitter Score is a solid C-

Hillary Clinton claims to be a wife, mom (small caps were her idea), Grandma, Women + Kids Advocate, FLOTUS (a job she was really horrible at), Senator and Secretary of State (another Job she didn’t do very well), Hair Icon, (another Bad Job) Pantsuit Aficiono, and 2016 Presidential Candidate.  (Lets hope she stays only a Candidate). Her Site however makes it look like she cares.  The Tweeting Committee gets it, lots of positive tweets, showing her looking like she cares.  (Hard to do)  Overall all Twitter Score B+.

TRUMP aka the Donald.  Very fast Learner!  Hard for him to keep any subject under 140 characters, so lots of Twitter Bombs where multiple tweets end up in a string.  However, he has a lot to say.  Plenty of followers and people showing their support.  Maybe the BEST of all. He doesn’t have to stage the photo opp, he is a Photo Opp.  People who hate him re-tweet him so he’s more popular.  Those who already love him, are happy to spread his message.  What would the other Republican Candidates give for so much press?  (Hello Mike Huckaby, Rick Santorum or who ever else is running).   He seems to be getting better with his overstatements, but best off all he is expressing what many Americans wish to talk about.  He seems to have his finger on the pulse.  We are all angry, with both sides.  (Elect a Billionaire going in, Not one coming out) a great line.  #makeAmericaGreatAgain reminds us all what we have lost.  Lots of re-tweeting Reagan Quotes, smart really smart. So the #realDonaldTrump is a A++

Twitter and the race for the Presidency show the (Not Ready for Prime time Players like no Other)  Hello Marco Rubio:  Seems like the same old Mitt Romeny Republican staffers who don’t get it, all got jobs prompting Marco.   (Buy a Marco Polo) is cute but not Presidential Material.  Help Marco Lead the Fight, to stop Iran.  What will happen when his own party turns against him and Senater Majorty Leader McConnell tells him how to vote.  He’s just not ready and his twitter postings show that every day.  Maybe years from now, when his message is more than (my Father was a bartender who came from Cuba, so I could be your President).  Twitter Score C+.

Jeb Bush or as it’s says on the sign  JEB!  Lots of reasons why he’d like to be President.  Honestly his twitter, facebook, and entire social media campaign worked to well.  Learning alot about JEB! turns out to be a problem.  No Bush hater here, ready to hear ole  JEB! the message.  But so far everywhere you turn JEB! is turning on his brother and Fathers legacy.  I don’t want a president with Heart, I want one with Balls to defend this Country.  So twitter score of an A, but because of the message, a no vote from this house.

Ben Carson: Love his feed,  Calm, predictable, smart and seems very real.  Probably won’t get him elected President but maks followers like him even more.  Twitter Score A.

Carly Fiorina: Twitter suits her, she is smart, quick and probably a very nice person.  She seems to be the candidate most available for an interview. (unlike Clinton).  Don’t see a path to the Presidency, but I do see a future Cabinet Post for which ever candidate she helps get elected.  Twitter Score B+

John Kasich @JohnKasich.  So far he uses Twitter just like he speaks, softly and deliberately.  Unfortunately that isn’t the way to catch on.  Great Message inside the message.  He understands politics, People and voters.  Needs a new Social Media Crew, (maybe Clinton’s when she gets arrested for destroying E-mails) who can make him look Presidential rather than the friend next door.  Twitter Score B- Candidate Score A+

Rand Paul: Yes we all hate the Tax Code.  But campy Videos about how to destroy it are hard to make as you now know.  Ouch.  Good Senator, probably would make an excellent President and uses his Wife well in the feeds.   Unlike candidates from Wisconsin.  Hope he starts putting some info and broader messages into the feeds.  Twitter Score B- Candidate Score A

Rick Perry:  Here is an extremely successful Governor.  It’s almost as if he never read a Twitter Feeds, mostly his own. Boring, Dull and written to not offend.  Donald Trump has already proven that offending people is almost a Twitter bonus.  Perry should hire some kids to work on his feed.  Twitter Score C

Senator Ted Cruz @SenTedCruz : The Twitter Feed alone should tell anyone looking that this guy is a Senator first.  Bright, smart, conservative and would probably be the closest president to a Calvin Coolidge we will ever get.  Looks like ole Ted is running for Vice President on the Trump Ticket.  That’s okay because someone is going to have to explain to Donald Trump that he would be living in Government Housing.  Twitter Feeds are kind of over the heads of Voters, he gets mired in the points and not onto the #makeAmericaGreatAgain which is more about him as a person and Candidate than Twitter user.  Just remember Senator people are as tired of Senator, and Government Officials running their lives as they are of Harvard grads telling us what to do!  Twitter Score B

Twitter or for that matter all of social media works best when you can be honest.  This is why the Donald is doing so well here.  Not a Single Vote has been Cast, yet every pundit is scared.  Why?  Because the America Public doesn’t need Pundits with Twitter and Social Media.  We can decide for ourselves.

Twitter and the Race for the Presidency makes 2016 a new dawn, no matter who wins.

 

President Donald Trump

In Hillary Clinton, Presidential Campaign, Terrorists on July 1, 2015 at 6:17 pm

The twitter inquisition is a new phenomenon in the social media world and one that allows instant feed back from the public and candidates themselves.  While Candidates like Marco Rubio seem to be using twitter as a garage sale more than media presence twitter and for that matter all of social media have helped the Candidates.  Hilary Clinton seems to be hoping by changing her logo to the Rainbow flag will help voters forget that before she was promoting gay rights she was Against gay marriage.  So the last twitter feed wins. dt-101

Each Candidate has their own style of social media.  Carly Fiorina seems to enjoy using it as a promotional device to suggest how voters might find her.  Jeb! hopes that it makes him more likable but always feels like pleading or begging.  Jim Webb who I don’t think has announced, must be working on his presence but will become likeable as voters can discover him.   Ben Carson always seems surprised and genuinely happy that people are listening, and for a guy that has a lot to say he could say a lot more using social media about his message rather than on Voter Counts at events. Chris Christie obviously likes seeing himself and will use social media to promote more of Christie. As to the bottom of the rest of the pack they will figure it out.

Scott Walker’s campaign is like Herpes, once they find you, they never leave. Walker is dangerous to the Trump Campaign because he is so connected to the Republican Party Leadership.  All Candidates will face this issue but a Trump Campaign must scare them most of all.

Now that leads us to the King of self Promotion: Donald Trump.  Talk about the first time in the game with rookie mistakes.  He is best at getting his message out, but he also is taking the bait.  He is fighting in front of others utilizing social media while doing so. Fighting with Macy’s, NBC, Reporters, and Univision will not gain any voters.  But people are watching how he will defend himself and anyone who disagrees with him.  Andrew Jackson took on anyone who disagreed with him and shot a few along the way, and lets hope The Donald doesn’t do the same.   Lincoln had his followers simply print fake tickets to take over the Convention and Reagan had to scold a reporter to get his voice.

Trump_President

The Donald who wishes to become President Trump needs to tone down the hostility towards his enemies and people who are not fans.  (Not being a Fan does not make you an enemy and if elected President they would be the same people he has to govern).  So here are some suggestions for the Donald.

You announced you where a Rich man and defended the American dream.  George Washington was also rich and only took a single dollar per year.  Add that to your platform.  $1.00 per year salary!  Run like George Washington and except one dollar.

Polk ran to accomplish 4 things- you offered a Wall to secure the boarder, Make America Great again- Honor the military which I assume means taking care of those kids who served and restore our economy.  Keep it simple and offer to do it in 4 years.  If those things are not accomplished offer to only serve the ONE TERM. Don’t over promise. Be like Polk and Finish what you started in one term.

Learn to poke a little fun at yourself.  AKA Ronald Reagan could tell and take a joke.  Be A little Reagan-Esq.

Kill the enemy that is trying to kill us!

Honor the lessons of Reagan and keep the eleventh Commandment.    Don’t beat up your fellow Republicans.  Stand on your own ground- you have already proven this.

Don’t take the bait:  Lets some fights go nu-fought and ignore them.  Especially on Social Media.

Remind Americans every day how much you love this country and keep the message simple and clean.  Most don’t understand the economy like you do:  Doesn’t make them stupid, makes them the people you are running for President to help.

Don’t take any Money to Run.  No Lobbyist Money, no Political Money.  Use your own fortune to become President.  Then you can stay your own Man.

People don’t have to like you or hate you: they need to VOTE for you.  Every day tag a reminder why!  Donald Trump #securingfreedomforAmerica #TrumpforSoundMoney #TrumpUSAPRIDE

Reagan and Madison gave us hope: Show us the way President Trump. America needs leadership.

The National debates will be better simply because Donald Trump is there and unlike the field of Politicians will bring the questions back to what All Americans want to hear.  How will we Save the American Dream?  If the Donald can become President lets make him Promise to Fix the Inside of the White House and not build a Better Trump Tower over it.  Just kidding, He is a great candidate and will make a honest President.  How long has it been since we could find that.

 

When a Politician gets it wrong

In Climate Change, Dollar Crisis, Government Reforms, President obamas Cabinet, Presidential Campaign on May 9, 2015 at 5:20 pm

When a Politician gets it wrong unless it happens during an election year, there are no consequences for that individual.  The taxpayers get the tab.

During the 70’s the USGS announced that the San Andres Fault was pushing up.  Millions of dollars were spent following the rise of the fault line and people were encouraged to prepare for the “Big One” as all of California waited for the next giant earthquake to split California in two.  Earthquakes are serious buisness, and being prepared is a good thing but the hysteria that followed was almost comical looking back.  One day someone looked at the equipment, and noticed that for years they had been making a simple calculation mistake.  We were not inching up after all.  In fact the fault had not moved in over a 150 years.  Another problem all together but the hysteria was over.  Climate change reminds me of this story.  As we are hyped into believing that if we don’t spend more on a particular politicians solution the oceans will rise and we will all die from green house gas.  How it’s my SUV that are responsible and not Washington’s use of Boeing Jets that needs to be curtailed I will never understand.

When a Politician gets it wrong we have to pay the price for their lack of understanding of Science and general thought.  Each Politician get to remedy the situation based on how it effects there district.

When a Politician gets it wrong once they retire from Washington they collect their money, as if they earned a cushy retirement.  We the taxpayers get to pay the ultimate price.

When a Politician gets it wrong we all suffer.  Let us count the ways.  Social Security is insolvent, yet they don’t have to have it work, because they are not relying on it to survive in their retirement.  We could fix that as voters and taxpayers if we just had the will.  Global Warming alarmist have been wrong for years and now we call it “Climate Change” because it didn’t get warm.  Or maybe we should just call it by it old name, “Weather” .    Yet the U.N. wants full control of the world under this new fear.  Unfortunately President Obama loves this idea, so instead of stopping the insanity we are going to spend taxpayer funds on this fallacy.  If the world does heat up, it will cool it self off as it has for millions of years.

When a Politician gets it wrong they are allowed to borrow money, from us the taxpayers to buy into the stock market and sell bonds for fund their lack of foresight.  If you buy a stock and it goes down you lose money.  When a Politician does it in your name, they leave you and I or us holding the bag.  Detroit should be enough to scare everyone, Stockton CA  or Orange County, California.  Yet they are doing it again.

When a Politician gets it wrong, they force the general public into Obama care and exempt themselves.  How many would take back there vote today?

When a Politician gets it wrong we pay and they move on.

When a Politician gets it wrong they just lie to us and themselves.

 

Go go go Marco Rubio

In Iran, Obama, Presidential Campaign, Terrorists on May 2, 2015 at 1:28 am

Go go go Marco Rubio, it’s time someone stood up for the power of the people by using the United States Senate to demand the lawlessness of the Obama Administration being called to a vote.

Go go go Marco Rubio, simply put Senator Rubio is demanding a vote on to which the Iran Nuclear deal require Iran to agree that Israel is a Sovereign State and has the right to exist.  Yet there are Senator that do not wish to put this simple line into a treaty or be required to Vote.  Why, it would show who is actually not supporting our friends who had democracy in the middle east.  Can you imagine being a Senator who has a Jewish contributor (and they all do) and not being willing to add such a little referendum.

Go go go Marco Rubio, Put each and every Senator on the Senate floor where C SPAN can watch as each will have to say out loud they would deny this simple line.

Go go go Marco Rubio, Most important is President Obama is afraid of this small line being debated or brought to the floor.

Go go go Marco Rubio, Maybe the amendment to Senator Cottons letter should also ask which Muslim group we now are supporting the Shia or Sunni?  Which does President Obama Support?

Anyone want to take bets what Valerie Jarrett thinks of this as well?   Go go go Marco Rubio!
