Bloggers back! Yay! I wanted to post this yesterday but lets talk about it now?
It's nearing that time again people. The time where we elect a person to run our country, and I'm on my usual politics kick, so lets discuss whats in the news shall we?
To start things off, 58th Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich(R) announced his candidacy for president via Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday, officially becoming the first to do this.
But my question is why? Why is a 67 year old man using a "tweet" to announce something in the first place? Is he trying to look "cool" and "with-it" to kids? Granted it's GREAT publicity, but you have to think this will turn a lot of people off. It's childish in my personal opinion. If you wanted my vote and wanted to look cool, go to the X-Games, make a video skydiving while announcing your candidacy, something like that. Don't just make a crappy youtube video with a link on twitter.
Rand Paul(R) made a BOLD statement by comparing free healthcare to slavery of workers in the medical field. If you watch the full video, you will see Bernie Sanders(I) destroy Rands statement.
I laughed. Hard.
This is all I have at the current moment for politics. But while the news picks up, who do you want to be president in 2012? What are your views?
