I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

He Stopped Loving Her Today and Politics

My appreciation of country music is limited but I do really like some of it.  There of course is Willie Nelson but I'm not really sure he would even be considered country these days.  But what about George Jones:
So why would I do this to you? I really kind of like this song but that's not the reason. It reminds me of today's Republican politics.
The Paul Ryan Legend Dissipates
Yes, Ryan does not want to discuss the math of his Alice In Wonderland budget for good reason - it comes straight from the Mad Hatter. Even the media has stopped loving Paul Ryan's "serious budget.".  It was much the same with Mitt Romney's "serious" middle east policy op-ed in the WSJ today. So have they stopped loving Romney? The important question are campaign contributors about to stop loving Romney with cash?
  • The Romney campaign is experiencing what some officials believe could be the beginning of a mass exodus of big money donors diverting their cash away from the Republican presidential hopeful and toward Republican candidates for the House and Senate races more likely to win in November, the FOX Business Network has learned.
  • The trend isn’t at the acute stage, at least not yet, said one person with direct knowledge of the matter. This person, a major player in Romney’s New York fundraising circles, confirmed to FOX Business that a few New York donors have backed away from financial commitments to the Romney campaign and instead said they will spend their money to help the Republicans hold on to the House of Representatives, and pick up seats in the Senate.
Have they stopped loving Mitt?
