Time 2 Escape Daily for Thursday, Jan 5, 2012

Unfortunately, my time was very limited today, and I will probably be on the busy side for the next few days. I can not expound on this post due to my time limitations. But I do want you to know that there is some great information embedded in the post for YOU to spend some time pondering. Being that I've found that I have my limitations, I have decided to do what I can do, but leave it to you to learn what you can from what I've posted.

Hopefully, I'll have more time to continue this effort soon. I'm just sayin'...

The News Stories:

Rush: I wouldn’t want McCain’s endorsement
Limbaugh expects Newt to go for Romney's jugular
by Joe Kovacs ~ Jan 4, 2012

PALM BEACH, Fla. – The real winner in the Iowa Caucuses was not Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney or Ron Paul, but rather President Obama, at least according to the national news media.

So says radio giant Rush Limbaugh who noted major media voices from across the country were singing the praises of Obama’s re-election chances, claiming Republicans appear to be divided among the likes of the top three finishers in the Hawkeye State.

MSNBC’s Martin Bashir declared: “The big winner in Iowa: President Obama.”    READ MORE

Obama fundraising e-mail expresses fear over “tea party extremists”
From the Greeley Gazette (via WND) ~ Posted by Matt Lacy • January 4, 2012

The Obama campaign appears to have shown us who they are really concerned about running against, a solidly conservative candidate instead of moderate Mitt Romney.

Following the Iowa caucus last night Jim Messina, Obama’s campaign manager sent out an e-mail expressing their fears over the results.

The message titled, “this is not a joke” expressed the campaign’s concerns that Governor Mitt Romney only received around 30 percent of the vote. “Many observers still think Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee. If he is, we will be prepared. But it's curious that no one can really explain how, when or why the 70-plus percent of Republicans saying in polls and in Iowa that Mitt Romney's not their candidate will suddenly come around.”

So the path ahead for Romney -- or whichever of the Republican candidates is going to emerge from this process -- is sadly and starkly very clear: to run even further to the extreme right, and make even more dangerous promises that threaten not only the progress we've made but the fundamental fabric of American society.”   READ MORE

Gingrich and climate change ~ By Jane Chastain
Exclusive: Jane Chastain looks at controversy over line in candidate's future book
From WND ~ Wednesday, January 4, 2012

“Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.”

Mark Twain
Does a leopard change its spots? Does a tiger change its stripes?

Newt Gingrich is what you might call a striped tiger or a spotted leopard. When it comes to what some see as the impending doom of climate change, the former speaker of the House is trying to have it both ways.

On Dec. 20, at a campaign stop in Iowa, he looked more like a deer than a leopard or tiger – a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle. When confronted by a woman who expressed concern about a chapter on climate change being written for his post-election book on the environment by climate change apologist Katherine Hayhoe, Newt began backpedaling. “That’s not going to be in the book,” he said. “We didn’t know that they were doing that, and we told them to kill it.” Ah, the proverbial “we.” Who are/is the we? The book’s editor, some unknown puppeteer who is out of sight pulling all the strings, or Gingrich himself?    READ MORE

Best place to start ~ By Ralph Marston
From The Daily Motivator ~ Thursday, January 5, 2012

Where is the best place to start, when you’re determined to make real improvements in your life? Where is the best place to start, when you’re totally committed to following your dream?

The best place to start is precisely where you are. The best time to start is the moment you are in.

As difficult and challenging as your situation may be, in that situation is a way to move forward. From where you are right now, there is a path that leads to precisely where you would like to be.
