“What I’m saying now is: Of the available candidates, Romney is, by far, the most conservative — tied with Michele Bachmann — and he has a proven ability to win in a state like Massachusetts.”Ann Coulter on Fox News

If Ron Paul had been President instead of FDR, we’d all be speaking German right now. Except all minorities. They’d be dead.

Trunkline 2012: Saturday Political Opinions and the Cinema Politico Movie of the Week: 11/26/11

Bookmark and Share    With less than 40 days to go before the Iowa Caucuses take place, this first holiday weekend of the holiday season is one of those rare times when we see and hear little news coming from the campaign trail. Iit will also be the last weekend for such little political news to report on for quite some time.  But in light of this brief lull, today’s Trunkline 2012 focuses on the opinions being offered from our fellows bloggers across the blogosphere.  And as is the case with every Saturday, we also offer you our movie of the week at White House 2012’s Saturday Cinema Politico.
  • If Romney doesn’t energize his campaign soon, somebody might actually try to win this race besides him.”
  • “Occupy The White House” Now In Full Throttle
  • Another victory for “smart power”
  • On Reversing the Immigration Magnet’s Polarities
  • Ron Paul is nuts
  • Will Congress try to duck the automatic cuts?
  • Moonbats Still Blame Sarah Palin for Gabby Giffords Shooting
  • Site of the Week2012Twit.com :  Most social media platforms are only as good as those who use them, nut some are still better than others.  For instance, Facebook is going through a transition which is currently making it less useful.  Twitter is however becoming more and more valuable when it comes to gathering useful information without a ot of chatter.  2012 Twit is a platform that enhances the use of Twitter, especially in the area of political information.  It provides a real time analysis of the 2012 presidential election on Twitter and if you don’t know about it yet, you should.
  • Sunday Morning News Programming: ABC -This Week With Christiane Amanpour The deficit-reduction talks; volunteerism; and access to clean water. Guests include Sen. Pat Toomey (R.-Pa.); Colin Powell; Matt Damon; Gary White (cofounder of water.org); and Bill Gates. – Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace: One on One” series of interviews featuring the Republican presidential field with former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman.Then, with the super committee failing to reach an agreement to cut $1.2 trillion dollars from the nation’s debt, how will Capitol Hill move to put our fiscal house in order?

  • File this under “I’m Sorry”: If White House 2012 is anything, it is honest, and it is that honesty which allows me to share this reader comment from Lou who writes;

“Love your site, but I’m finding the “typos” and missspelllings disconcerting. For no charge, I’ll review your copy before you post it. Isn’t it worth five minutes more to get it out “clean and sober”? I’m serious, guys. I’ll do it for no charge, in the interest of getting the message out without the annoying distractions. I hope to here from youse.”

-Lou F.

Lou is right and while I can try to offer excuses, any such attempts would be just that……excuses.  I myself have often found errors in the stories of others and thought to myself “how stupid”.  I recently read a piece from a prominent columnist who was writing about the flu season and wrote, “I hate how I always get dick”.  He meant “sick”.  That one slipped by (no pun intended….okay, maybe it is intended) the columnists, the editors, and the proofreader.  And they all get paid handsomely for their work.  Here at White House 2012, no one gets paid.  Ours is a labor of love and done out of passion for our beliefs.  However, finances or the lack thereof, are no excuse for sloppy work.  So to Lou and everyone else out there, I offer my apologies for typos, and misspelled words.  We may not be the New York Times but that is still not reason enough to not be better than them,……….which shouldn’t be too hard to do.

  • White House 2012′s Cinema Politico: This week’s feature presentation is Atomic Cafe.

This 1982 flick  provides a slight release of comic energy. The film recounts a defining period of 20th century history and serves as a chilling and often hilarious reminder of cold-war era paranoia in the United States.  At least it’s considered paranoia now.

If you haven’t done so yet, we at White House 2012 ask you to use this day as a good excuse for finally donating to the worthy Wounded Warrior Project.

Founded in 2003, WWP’s purpose is to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

Always remember that the brave and selfless men and women who have defended our nation, its interests, and our freedom, and our way of life, have sacrificed much for us all. Now it is time for all of us to sacrifice just a little to thank, honor and help those Veterans who now need the help of others to rebuild their own lives.

Trunkline 2012: Saturday Political News in Review and Cinema Politico Movie of the Week – 10/22/11

Bookmark and Share

This slightly comedic romance details the relationship between two people on the opposite ends of the political spectrum. Taking place during the course of the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York City, a Republican man meets back up with a Liberal woman he knew in college. The two begin to fall in love, even though they each have trouble reconciling this new personal passion with their political passion. The tension each feels is exacerbated when a friend of the young woman reveals that he is going to be in apposition to disrupt the President’s speech at the convention. The film was shot on location during the actual 2004 Republican Convention, leading to the arrest of some of the filmmakers when they ended up capturing some of their footage without permission.  The flick really isn’t that good, but its different and if you’re reading this site, you’re probably the type who can’t pass up a movie dealing with politics, the Republican National Convention and a conservative vs. liberal ideological clash.

It stars, Matthew Mabe, Woodwyn Koons, Alek Friedman, Alicia Harding, and  Jennifer Brown.
