Thursday Morning News Roundup

Thursday Morning News Roundup

Many new iPhone 5s are being shipped with defects. I really don’t understand the hysteria. My droid works extremely well and it cost me 1/3 the price.

iOS 6 is a disaster.

New Romney video – he will “harvest” companies. I’m sure that progressives have been sitting on this video and waiting for the right time.

Romney stops a crowd of supporters who are chanting “Ryan, Ryan.” Wow.

The NFL Referee strike is over. Finally!!! I think we can see how unions can work for the benefit of everyone. This union provided a high quality product.

Romney is losing Ohio and Florida. These are two huge swing states. Recent poll shows Romney down by 10.

Romney at a recent conference told small business NOT to except big tax cuts.

Really?I don’t understand why we still allow corporal punishment in the schools. I really don’t get it. In Texas it is okay for male teachers to spank female students. Oh, there is no chance for anything to go wrong there?!

More later!!!

Wild Card Disaster, Part 2

I chose the Cincinnati Bengals to beat the resilient Houston Texans. I figured it would be difficult if not impossible for the Texans to win with a third-string rookie quarterback. The Texans were also missing their star defensive end, Mario Williams. I thought that, for the most part, Andy Dalton has been protecting the football and playing more like a veteran and less like a rookie. I thought the Bengals would find a way to get AJ Green free from suffocating double coverage. Finally, I thought that the Cincinnati Bengals defense would shut down the run and force the Houston Texans to pass.

I knew that the Houston Texans had an excellent defense, but they really suffocated the Cincinnati Bengals. They forced three Andy Dalton turnovers. Besides that, they simply crushed the running game. The Cincinnati Bengals’ running backs (Cedric Benson and Bernard Scott) combined for 13 attempts for 25 yards. That’s it. AJ Green, Andy Dalton’s favorite receiver, had five catches for only 47 yards. But that’s only half the story. The offensive line for the Houston Texans simply dominated. One would figure that the Cincinnati Bengals wanted to stop the run, but they simply couldn’t. Adrian Foster ran for 153 yards on 24 carries. He was brilliant and so was the offensive line.

I’m not sure if I underestimated the Houston Texans or overestimated the Cincinnati Bengals. Either way – congratulations to the Houston Texans.

The surge of Rick Santorum

Well, this is a surprise. With the Iowa caucuses just four days away, Rick Santorum has solidly moved into third place. Nevermind the fact that Rick Santorum has proved multiple times (here, here and here) over the last decade that he would be a disaster as a president, I believe the new polling shows how desperate Republicans are to find somebody, anybody who can do something, even if that something is clearly the wrong thing for the country.
