A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART

TL A COMMENTARY FROM THE HEART (26)

It’s day one of the rest of my life. It’s day one of the best of my life. I’m marching on to the beat of a brand new drum ya here I come the future has begun its day one.  – Mathew West

FORTUNE COOKIE
My Fortune Cookie

What does this fortune mean?  Keep praying, America!  Today we walk toward the future as a nation…  let’s do it with our heads bowed, humbly asking God to intervene.

As government expands, liberty contracts. – Ronald Reagan

While we continue to “shop” for the GOP nominee, let’s take notes along the way and get on our knees and pray!  I will say one thing for each candidate on the debate stage:  they are all extremely strong!  To be honest, if someone slammed my looks I think I’d crawl in a hole and pull the hole in after me.  I admire Carly Fiorina so much for how she turned that rude comment – the quote by Donald Trump in “Rolling Stone” magazine – into a huge positive for American women everywhere!

LOOK AT THAT FACE…  and that RED DRESS…  power color…  you GO, girl!!!

Fiorina’s knowledge of US defense and the specifics she shared is impressive.  She said she would assure Israel that we are on their side.  I smiled big at that point.  I like what she had to say about the economy as well.  Also I appreciated that she spoke out for the defunding of Planned Parenthood.  It’s amazing when she is given the opportunity to speak how much we learn about her!

I believe Dr. Carson was less than impressive, but I did not like the type of questions CNN asked – pitting one candidate against another.  We know they are running against each other, but to purposefully pit one against another is just not cool.  It’s my belief that this sort of premeditated snarky question is not one that Dr. Carson is comfortable answering!  I would not want to answer snarky questions either.  It’s my suspicion that this is part of the reason he did not shine as he may have otherwise.

I’d rather see a debate that is really about issues instead of hearing questions like, so-and so has said such and such about you – how would you respond to that?  The way the questions were worded instantly put the respondent on the defensive.  The more time they spend defending themselves against each other, the less time they have to talk about the stuff that REALLY matters.

Call me prejudiced, but I appreciated the FOX debate so much more because the questions were not asked in a way that directly pitted one against another.  The questions had to do with policy instead of personality – and I appreciated that.

It’s not going to be an easy choice to make – so once again I encourage you to pray about this important decision.  Of course, most of us won’t get to vote until the race is narrowed down, so many folks are not paying close attention like I am.  I just happen to enjoy politics.  I know – I’m weird.  LOL!!!  :-/
