The DNC Convention vs the Laws of NC

Just in case anyone had thought that the DNC had decided to maybe lay off pushing their anti-business pro union down anyones throat they thought they could.. Well no such luck.

Apparently the DNC forgot to check the laws in NC before they awarded Charlotte the convention for this year. Actually more likely is they knew the laws exactly and wanted to see how many businesses they could get to union up due to a chance to get some extra business in such a crappy economy.

So just remember folks we here at The Handbook want you to always remember. When there is a D at the end of the name I assure you its not YOU they are looking out for.

Fast and Furious vs. 2nd Amendment

" A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." 2nd Amendment

Part of what makes the case of Fast and Furious, the gun walking plot developed by ATF, State Dept, FBI, DOJ, and every other group of initials we can come up with is the questions about what exactly the purpose of the scheme was. For those of you who don't know about F&F, it was a program that allowed over 2000 guns to be "walked" across the Mexican border, mostly to the Sinola drug cartel.

Voter Fraud in FL

We here at The Handbook try not to link to the same site to many times in one day, because frankly they aren't linking to us (although if they even knew we existed maybe that would help..) either way.

Here is further proof that the left is a bunch of liars and the voter fraud we all know happens.. is well.. happening...

UPDATED: Hermain Cains Problems

After the weekend we here at The Handbook had picking college and pro football games we should have known that openly supporting a candidate would probably doom them from the jump. Turns out we aren't completely paranoid.

Now the question becomes, are the allegations true, misconstrued, or completely fabricated. Well apparently there was a NDA signed by both of the women who were supposedly sexually harassed by Hermain Cain. He not surprisingly has come out and said everything is completely false. What else can he do come out and say, "Yup i did it, sorry bout that" cause that wouldn't have went over very well. Although denying it and have it turn out to be true would probably be even worse.

So the second question becomes where did this come from. Politicos source wasn't named and probably isn't coming forward any time soon. Redstate believes that it came from the Romney campaign since he's the only one so far that has shown a willingness to bring something like this out to muddy up an opponent. However Cain hasn't taken much support from Mittens and its not like they are going after the same demographic inside of the GOP anyway. However with our complete distrust and dislike of all things Romney we wouldn't be surprised. Question becomes though if it is proven to be Romney that shoveled this out and it turns out to be false accusations does it hurt Romney. My guess is no, since the people that are backing him are probably the same people that were backing him in 08 and would just call it oppo research.

Next comes the Perry campaign. While it hasn't proven itself to be involved in such things publicly so far Hot Air isn't so sure that it's Mittens and also claims that a witness is has come forward. Seems more likely since the support that Cain has garnered seems to have mostly come from the Perry campaign. They are both going after the social and fiscal con inside the GOP. Of course that could still leave Bachmann and Santorum, but I doubt if either is spending the little money they are bringing in on oppo research like this.

For a palate cleaner Cain is still showing strong support in both Iowa and SC. Does it hold up? I don't know. If the one female is allowed out of her NDA and has something along the lines of a blue dress to prove it all happened the way its been reported then I think Cain is sunk. Of course if this doesn't come out until after he has the nomination sewn up then, well O gets 4 more to ruin everything that is America.

Until proof comes out that he is actually guilty of this and that each of these women weren't paid just to go away on frivolous claims we here at The Handbook will continue our support of the Cain candidacy, that being said if the claims prove to be true, well..

Update: Apparently a third woman has come forward claiming that she was invited back to Cains corporate apartment. To say this looks bad is an understatement however this woman decided not to file the suit back when she knew about the other two already settling their cases. So if this really is true then obviously it wasn't money she was after.

This is from NBC News via the AP

The unidentified woman never filed a complaint but said she considered it, according to the AP. The behavior was characterized as "aggressive" and "unwanted."
The woman spoke to AP only on condition of anonymity, saying she feared losing her current job and the possibility of damage to her reputation. According to the AP, she said that Cain had told her that he had confided to colleagues how attractive she was and extended an invitation to his corporate apartment outside work.
NBC News has not verified her claims.

I know shocking I would read NBC news but I was looking for the worst possible spin of the story.

Week 8

For those of you who know us here at The Handbook, watching the Saints game today made us realize why is probably better for all of our health to not watch them any more. Maybe my uncles Dr. is on to something here.

Consider this an open thread for anyone who wants to comment.

Herman Cain: The only real option out there

 For those of us with a very strong conservative streak in us saying that the fields for POTUS for the last few election cycles has sucked would be a gross understatement. No one has really come out and just been honest and principled in their views. Ok well one has, but lets be honest Ron Paul ain't exactly what were looking for in a President. Although I would contend his intentions are good and having him as POTUS right now would still be better than whats there. 

 In the last election cycle I would have bitten the bullet and voted for Mitt Romney. I felt at the time even with his inability to have a backbone and take a stand on anything at least he could have competed in the debates with O and probably made him look silly most of the time on economic issues. I cannot do that this time around. The movement and progress that we have made over the last year or so with the mid-terms and the Tea Party just will not allow me to compromise that much on what I believe this country needs.

 That brings us to who I feel not only could win the nomination but also win the general. Now I do not really care about the establishment and their belief that its Romneys turn. Or that he is the most presidential looking or whatever ignorance they are spitting out to try to convince us that a Northeastern Gov who created socialized medicine in his state is where we should go.

 Thus enter Herman Cain. I'll admit when he first came out I like most people didn't give him much credence. First off I knew nothing about him and secondly I wasn't sure if he was actually able to put together a campaign and do everything that would go along with that. What we are seeing now is that the more people find out about him the more that people like him. Yes, just to get it out of the way he makes mistakes, he misspeaks, he screws up, hes  a novice at running a campaign, and you know what I'm completely fine with all of that. It proves more to me that he is being honest. He is coming out and saying what he believes, mostly because he doesn't have the staff to prep him or teach him about all the other things that politicians worry about and frankly we here at the Handbook like that a lot.

 I don't want a cookie cutter politician that always smiles never shows emotion and always has the perfect answer that actually answers nothing. I don't want sound bites. I want policies, I want beliefs. Take his 9-9-9 plan, is it perfect? Absolutely not, however I believe hes showing a willingness to work it and mold it into a plan that could actually work. Without him you don't get the Perry plan, you don't have Mittens coming out saying that he would be willing to possibly flatten his tax plan out.

 Face it whether you like Cain or not he is setting the agenda right now for the debates and the policies coming out of the Republican candidates. Even doing so and being attacked at each of the last couple debates he is still the front runner. Why? Because people want someone who is honest, and doesn't three polls, four studies and a teleprompter to tell him what his positions are on things.
