Elizabeth Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, is kicking ass and taking names in an assault against the weak foreign policy of failed President Barack Obama and his defenders in the liberal media.
And conservatives, desperate for an articulate leader who can forcefully defend and portray our values and ideals on the national stage, are starting to pay attention.
Message to Republicans still smarting over our November 4 election loss: Stop your worrying. There’s a man in Florida called Charlie Crist who happens to be their Republican governor, and he’s got the whole thing figured out. He’s not even keeping it a secret. He laid it on the Republican governors who met last week in Miami.
Pat Toomey, Pennsylvania’s most recent Republican challenger to RINO Arlen Specter, comments on a study by his Club For Growth that shows voters in 12 contested counties nationwide prefer smaller government. 11 of these 12 tossed their Republican congressional representative on Tuesday.
Toomey warns that Democrats shouldn’t see these gains as a mandate for big government. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. Although these voters were either too dim or too caught up in emotion to realize it, the voting booth has no way to know their actual opinion on issues. It only records the candidate for whom they cast their vote. They voted carte blanche for President-Elect Government to do whatever he wants.
A little grist for my thesis via NBC’s commentary following President Bush’s congratulatory speech this morning:
LAUER: Very gracious comments from the president during extremely difficult times for him this morning.
TODD: Incredibly gracious. I mean, it was as if he wanted to bask in the reflected glory of the history that was made. Very — just like John McCain did last night. And it is more striking coming from the man who’s probably more responsible for not just Obama’s election but John McCain’s defeat than anybody else.
As much fun as it’s going to be as a conservative political observer to watch the Obama presidency devolve into a total disaster over the next four years, it’s going to be a nightmare as an American patriot. With every misstep America gets a little weaker. That’s not good for anyone.
You can’t blame Obama for seeking the Presidency or for lying, cheating and deceiving to win it. While I’m glad Republicans aren’t cheating lowlifes, I think we can call agree the Republican party could use a little more of the “We will do whatever it takes to win” mentality within reason. It’s not Barack Obama’s fault that he did what it took to win the election.
We are, however, supposed to have a firewall in this society to prevent a candidate from ascending to our highest office based on an entirely fictionalized presentation of himself, his history and his positions. The media is supposed to provide that function. They have not when it comes to Barack Obama.
Any discussion of rebuilding the conservative majority in government must start with a total reformation of what we consider to be the mainstream media.
am stunned that there is absolutely no plan from the RNC to combat Barack Obama’s upcoming 30 minute infomercial. Although it may not be the deciding factor of the election, it is 30 minutes of uninterrupted, unopposed Obamaganda on all major networks
On October 27, 1964, Ronald Reagan took to the airwaves for a half-hour of advertising time paid for by the Goldwater campaign and delivered an address to the nation called “A Time For Choosing,” also known as “The Speech.” Reagan had been delivering versions of the address, modified at times to reflect new information, during the entire campaign, most notably at the Republican National Convention in San Francisco.
