Meeting on Saturday 2/11

Greetings all- we have a meeting on Saturday 2/11/ 12 at our usual place at the Galleria (Cumberland and 285). Email me at everenee@aol.com for directions and information. It's a bring your own breakfast meeting and there might be some surprise treats.

This is the last meeting before Georgia's March 6th Presidential Preference primary. The good news is this election is not a done deal so your vote does count! Come for some intelligent conversation as we "caucus" with each other and "stand by our man" or argue for a brokered convention this summer.

Will it be Mitt, Newt, Rick or Ron? Is abstaining a good way to voice your displeasure with the field? Did anyone else see a tweet saying Paul Ryan would be open to being drafted in a brokered convention ( one could only hope!). Anyone else in love with Marco Rubio? Plus did Karen Handel's departure from Komen enhance her political chances in the future? And we'd love to hear what our Catholic friends think about the President's birth control/abortion overreach.

Just some of what's on the table this weekend at Saturday Morning in America- Atlanta chapter.
See you there. (Eve)

There was a great turnout of about a dozen or so members at this past Saturday's meeting. Making it though the wind tunnel and into the building was a challenge!

We discussed Syria and Iran but the most informative part of our morning was a roundtable discussion of the candidates. Each Saturday Girl gave her opinion (mostly uninterrupted!) for whom she will cast her ballot on March 6th and for whom she WISHED she could cast her ballot. And why.

We had the opportunity to state each candidate's strengths and weaknesses. I think we would agree it was a thoughtful and respectful discussion.

We missed those of you who could not make the meeting and hope to see you at the next one. It will be the Saturday after the Georgia Primay and should be interesting!
