You've Got To Kiss A Lot Of Frogs......



                                                                    ( not Noodle )


March 23rd 2015 Ted Cruz became the first major candidate to announce he was running for president in 2016.
To put that in perspective that's one year, two months and eleven days ago...ah, seems like only yesterday ( if you have amnesia ).

We have since witnessed 17 republican candidates and 5 democrats vie for the title of  nominee of their respective parties.
So, yes we have kissed a lot of frogs but to what end?
Where is our white knight? Where is the happily ever after?
Seems like all we got for our trouble was a whole bunch of warts!

In keeping with our complete and unbiased objectivity, this week we take a look at Hillary...

First there are the main talking points;

The biggest complain being people don't think she's trustworthy.
Then there is, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!
Those Pesky e-mails.
Bill and his indiscretions with the ladies.
She's not warm and fuzzy.
She's not humble enough.

Hillary is like any other politician in that she has her share of warts.
Show me a politician who doesn't.
She's too defensive.
She doesn't have a sparkling personality.
She is a Washington insider.

But, ask yourself this simple question;
If I need medical attention would I go to Dr. Hillary or Mr. Trump?
Sure Mr.Trump says he knows what he's doing ( "trust me") but he has no medical degree and the closest thing he has to one is the fact that he played the game Operation really well when he was a kid.
DR. Hillary on the other hand does have a degree and plenty of experience.
She may not have a great bedside manner and I may not want to have a beer with her but she will save my life...
Not so hard to decide anymore is it?
And if you think because she's a woman she isn't tough enough; check this out...

My opinion; we need a president who is knowledgeable, fierce and will get the job done.
And has a record to back that up.
In this era of us all wanting the wow factor from a candidate, it might be wise to think long and hard about what we really want from the person who leads our country and not so much about how entertaining or likeable they are.

So yes, it's been a long ride and it's not over yet.
We've had to kiss a lot of frogs along the way and there is probably still more puckering to come.
We still have 5 months of this crap left!

We hope that Noodle's blog has helped sort through the slog of information out there and in the process has been as fair and bipartisan as we possibly could. We have truly made an effort to do so.

We will try to keep on top of all the candidates and their policies as well as bring you bits and pieces that may have slipped through the cracks or are just plain interesting.

We hope that you will always feel comfortable and free to call us out if you think we have misrepresented someone or something.
Politics should be discussed not screamed in anger or bullied into submission...

The most important thing any of us can do is VOTE. It's easy to get fed up with the process, throw your hands up and walk away.
But that just leaves a bigger mess later on down the road.




Have a wonderful weekend!


Noodle and crew

  2. We think you've found some faulty frogs! Probably affected by pollution. Good Luck. Remember, it affects the whole world.

  4. Wonderful advice and yes, throwing up your hands and giving up is the WORST thing anyone can do. And I have noticed lately, when Hilary smiles, she is another human being. I think she's shy but in a way that's not easy to see. Bernie is also a mensch. We'll see....Wish they would run together.

  6. Hillary's warts just don't bother us as much as Donald's festering boils...

  8. Life is full of warts but some of 'em can stink up the place a lot more than others. Trust me. I know. We're going to do something about that. I'm building a wall.

    MOUSES!

  10. Our dad always says, an honest person has no interest in running for office. MOUSES! Mom thinks she'll pull her hair out prior to November. She just hopes she won't be pulling her hair out for four years after that as well. Four to eight years with an egotistical buffoon as president could be enough for her to move out of the country. We're pretty sure you know who we are talking about. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  11. TW has hated HRC since Bill ran for president. That said, she will be voting for her in November. Warts are better than the back end of a horse.
