Well it’s come to this time of the four year cycle once again. That means it’s time for Obama and all of the opposing republican candidates to start making some good friends with deep pockets to try and win the U.S presidential race. For the Republicans I’m sure that the oil companies will certainly come to the rescue once again. If they do manage to win, let’s hope this time it won’t result in a war mongering lunatic getting in to office, that’s right George Bush please take a bow.
A lecturer once told me, “The U.S presidential race is a nastiest game around, whether you’re republican or democrat, no one gets to the top of the ladder over there without scratching so many backs, that by the time you’re in the hot seat, you owe a lot of people, a lot of things. And these people want to be paid back with interest, PRONTO”.
With quite a few of the caucuses behind us and the governor ofMassachusetts, Mitt Romey back in the lead for the Republican Party nomination, there have been a few casualties and a few campaigns derailed along the way. They have come in a variety of ways, from sex scandals to not knowing what you would do when you get in to the White house, with this last one being my personal favourite. In the nationally televised debate, Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry, who coincidentally sounds like a WWF wrestler was asked what organisations he would scrap if he got the top job. Here is Ricks answer below. Absolutely brilliant…
Whatever happens between now and the 6th of November I think the world better be hoping that Obama gets his second term. He might not have lived up to every promise he made but I do honestly believe that he has tried to, and will continue to do so, that’s a lot more then many of his counterparts have ever done (and probably the republicans)
I decided to go trudging through some of the photo’s I have taken whilst being back in Dublin seeing as I had no camera for my last visit bar my iphone. I managed to stumble across this one which I really love and had completely forgotten about. It was orginally much brighter but seeing as it is a statue which is depicting the famine of Ireland from 1845-1852 I thought it best to alter the photo ever so slightly.
I decided to boost the colour and then turn it to black and white which has given the face of the statue to me a far more gaunt and haunting look and for some reason completely unbeknown to myself added a gold or bronze kind of tinge.
