What do Tom Udall, Barack Obama and a Turtle Have in Common?

 Posted:  October 28, 2014

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president. The old rancher said, “Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘Post Turtle’.” Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a ‘post turtle’ was. The old rancher said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.” The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with.”

This little story has been around forever, but it does illustrate some down home wisdom in a very lighthearted way.

Tom Udall votes with Obama well over 90% of the time, supports his policies, says nothing when he should criticize the POTUS for actions that violate common sense, and applauds Obama even when the man doesn’t need it or deserve it.

We like turtles. They take a while to decide on their course of action but once they pursue it they don’t move at all in any other direction.

The voters of New Mexico have put the environmentalist, non-private enterprise, big government, big tax Tom Udall on the top of the post. It seems that Tom Udall has been on that post for fifteen or sixteen years, not bothering to move his little feet in trying to adjust to the changing times for Americans and the middle class. Tom Udall is a do nothing turtle who just says little about issues that really matter and can’t be reached for comments because his head has been drawn back into his shell.

Tom Udall is running the same campaign as he did sixteen years ago.

Don’t New Mexico voters think things have changed dramatically in the last sixteen years?

Why do we want the status quo from Tom Udall in ever changing new world?
