This morning I opened up my Google machine to find a certain Mr. Michael Barone now agrees with us. It looks like Mr. Barone finally read the memo I sent him on May 13, and re-sent on August 18.
Look kiddies, BHO's campaign has been a dead letter for some time. The corrupt and biased lamestream media has kept alive the fiction of a close race with flawed polling methodologies that have over sampled registered democrats, under sampled independents, and discounted the effect of voter enthusiasm. Plus you can always take a few percentages points off the Empty Suit's grade, in the translation between the answer to a pollster's phone call and a vote that really matters, due to the effect of white guilt. The immutable facts are everybody knows Barry's dysconomy sucks, the Benghazi cover-up puts Barry's failed foreign policy into sharp relief, and tens of millions of people watching the televised debates without the psychedelic distortion of lamestream media filters saw Mittens hand Barry his ass in open debate.
Therefore, I, LibertyAtStake, will move "forward" to planning the much needed transition to adult leadership in the executive branch of our federal government. Here is your Dream Team Mittens for the upcoming administration.
Stipulation #1: No "czars." A "czar" is a dead Russian despot, and has no place in our constitutional system.
State: Newt Gingrich in the top slot, and John Bolton #2. Now, I know Bolton is the top choice for most conservatives, but hear me out here. The Foggy Bottom that denied security to the Benghazi consulate needs some serious hands-on 24x7 adult leadership. Bolton is just the smart guy we need to keep at headquarters kicking bureau-weenie ass for the next four years, unencumbered by traveling figure-head duties. Newt is just the scary-looking figurehead we need travelling the world giving scary speeches to reverse the last four years of failed Apology Tour diplomacy.
Defense: Current Representative, and retired Lt. Colonel Allen West. He's just the man to lead the Pentagon's good old boys club of standard issue politically correct four star bureaucrats into a renewed age of American global leadership.
Justice: Mark levin. His orders will be to institute a department wide constitutional law competency test, and fire the high percentage of career department lawyers that will surely fail it.
CIA: Some career spook you and I never heard of, hopefully the one that has been inside Mohammed Morsi's head for a living recently.
Education: Michelle Rhee. Her orders will be to break the public teachers unions, while some intern in the background drafts the legislation to eliminate the failed department altogether.
Energy: Leave vacant as a symbolic political statement while some intern in the background drafts the legislation to eliminate the failed department altogether.
Interior: Sarah Palin. Drill, baby, drill!
Treasury: Larry Kudlow. Grow, baby, grow!
Commerce: The most inspirational business executive I, LAS, have ever had the privilege of being in the same room with - Herman Cain.
Labor: Li'l Richie Trumka - as a sop to bi-partisanship. Never return his phone calls and cut his budget in half off the top. Fire him the first time he says something controversial in public.
Agriculture: John McCain, as a lifetime achievement award, and because he's on record as against ethanol subsidies. Who the hell came up with the brilliant idea to transform a perfectly good food product into a lousy fuel product, anyway?
HHS: Somebody with both congressional and medical credentials, to rip out the regulatory roots of ObamaCare that have already been planted - repeal notwithstanding. Senators Tom Coburn and Rand Paul come to mind, but we'll need their votes in the Senate. When I plugged "physicians in congress" into my Google machine, this is the initial pool that came up. (First task for Mittens is to assign an intern to scratch off the Senate members, leaving only the House members to choose from.)
Signers include: U.S. Senators Tom Coburn, M.D. (R-OK), John Barrasso, M.D. (R-WY), John Boozman (R-AR), O.D., Rand Paul (R-KY), M.D., House Representatives Phil Gingrey M.D. (GA-11), Phil Roe, M.D. (TN-1), Scott DesJarlais, M.D. (TN-4), Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-1), Diane Black (TN-6), Renee Ellmers (NC-2), John Fleming, M.D. (LA-4), Charles Boustany, M.D. (LA-7), Dan Benishek, M.D. (MI-1), Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-8), and Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-1).HUD: Donald Trump. He knows how to build neighborhoods.
Transportation: Damned if I know. Maybe there's a NASCAR driver getting ready to retire who has conservative principles.
Veterans Affairs: Somebody willing to take the job that is personally connected to the Fort Hood "workplace violence" incident.
DHS: This agency should have never been cobbled together in the first place. Offer it to Rudy Giuliani to manage the break up. As for the constituent parts ...
FEMA: Giuliani. We already know he can walk and chew gum at the same time.
INS: Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.
ICE: Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
TSA: Ask the Israelis for a recommendation, with orders to transform airport security to the Israeli "profiling" model ASAP.
Now get out there and vote like your republic depends on it.
