47 % ? What is up with the that?

47 % of voters, a recent politician said, would vote a certain way for a president regardless of who the president was. Ok, we know the story was about Mitt Romney.

Allot of news in circles said this was a huge gaff for the Republicans. In this blog, I am trying to be neutral here. Mitt Romney does have allot going for him. He looks presidential, and he does have that W. Bush or even a tad of that Ronald Reagan about him. I do like Mitt, and I do like Obama as well.

Obama is a smooth talker. The only problem, is that it appears he likes to talk too much, for myself, personally. I can only handle so much of his speech. But, he can rhyme off a his usual highs and lows about any subject for hours on end.  He can talk your head off.

As I have said in an earlier post, Clinton was one of the best speech givers of all time. Reagan, and a Canadian Prime Minister by the name of Jean Chretien gave some incredible moments.

Mitt Romney, from what I gather from the press, makes allot of gaffs. This is not good, when you are running for president of the USA. Bush was somewhat similar, but in a more humorous way. Romney unfortunately, is a little too much on the serious end. The 47 % who are dependent on the government for this and that, may come to remember him big time at the polls.

This is the big problem with the new reality of politics. Everybody got a camera. Everybody can record you on a cell phone. No longer can you have those little chats, that so many past leaders had off of the cuff, without fear of exposure. This is the new age we now live in.

Do I still think Romney can win. For sure. I know how he can win. I know exactly how he can win. I am not going to freely give it on here. But I am not a political adviser. I am not in his inner circle. I hope he wins. But I do also hope Obama wins too, as being an outsider. I root for the two of them.

No news on the book front, till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
