The LuLac Edition #1933, February 6th, 2012

"What's Next" logo.


After Nevada and their election results, it is now on to Colorado, Minnesota and Maine. Republican front-runner Mitt Romney is looking toward the next states that hold GOP nominating contests as main rival Newt Gingrich denies any talk of abandoning his White House bid, which means the battle for the nomination will stretch into the spring and beyond.
After losing big to Romney in Nevada, the former House speaker reiterated his intention to campaign into the party convention in Tampa this summer. Gingrich said the goal was to "find a series of victories which by the end of the Texas primary will leave us at parity" with Romney by early April. We mentioned this is Edition #1931 and Gingrich made all the morning talk show stops on Sunday saying the very same thing. Mitt Romney did not go on any of them. Gingrich seems to be using free media time anywhere he can get it.
Gingrich conceded the Romney win in Nevada saying Romney won it in ’08 chalking it up to a very big Mormon population and familiarity with Romney. Gingrich said he wanted to get to Super Tuesday where there are a lot of southern states friendly to him.
But Gingrich must make it through Colorado and Minnesota, which both hold caucuses this Tuesday. Maine follows on Saturday. Gingrich will have little money to spend and does not have the luxury of the great advance team that Romney has. Romney will look to maintain his position of strength as his rivals continue attempting to derail him even as their options wilt away with each victory he achieves.
The month of February will be a dull month in the GOP race. There will not be any debates and the states involved will be caucus type events with not a very large pool of voters. Still, the race goes on. And on and on……

Good morning. I hope that you are all recovering nicely from your super bowl hangovers. I equally hope that you had the money to pay up to your neighborhood bookies if the game did not turn out your way. I apologize for not being here last Friday, as I was in New England for additional lectures. Alas, here we are once again, fortunately or unfortunately.

The business of this classroom goes forward.

I could not help but chuckle at the glee of the liberal media over the somewhat optimistic job numbers which were released Friday last. Over a quarter of a million jobs gained is nothing to snicker at, but we must understand that these numbers are exaggerated at best. When all is said and done it is quite clear that the economic engine of this nation has been stalled out for the past three years.
Stalled out due to an unfair tax burden on the job creators.
Stalled out due to excessive wasteful spending.
Stalled out due to the equally excessive crazy math of the Federal Reserve.
Stalled out due to a demoralized nation forced to participate in a health care program that it does not want.
I can go on and on, but I have clearly made my point.
Jobs are not created by tax money. Jobs are created by visionaries. And if the tax burden is high on these people then they are stagnant in their ability to expand or even start a business.
The key to success economically is to take away that tax burden on the wealthy.
And for those who charge the call of class warfare I have a brief statement.
Willard Mitt Romney donated over 3 Million dollars to charity last year. I'll say it once more. Three Million dollars donated by this fine man to charity.
I am willing to bet that if I pooled this classroom as far as your charitable contributions be concerned that I would be lucky to come up with the amount of 3 dollars.
"The fault Brutus, lies not in the stars, BUT IN OURSELVES."
Something to think about this morning.
Class Dismissed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No Super Bowl halftime show would be ok with me, but if we must have one they better book Andy Williams or Neil Diamond next year to avoid the unnecessary crap that goes on. No fault of Madonnas, but some people just cant be trusted to act right even on national TV. Somebody on stage saluted the nation with the finger. Very much not cool. Sadly no surprise! Bag the show and play football. The halftime is too long anyway and can adversley affect the players and the game! Geez!

Archie Manning was a terrific quarterback who played on lousy teams in college and in the pros.
His sons now have three Super Bowl Championships between them. Sometimes it takes some time, but in the end I bet Manning is pleased with the way things worked out.
Good Job Giants!

Dont apologize prof, the pleasure was all ours. Cant you go a little further for a little while longer?
Possibly a long cruise on an Italian cruise ship. Or a trek on foot thru the Everglades.
