Jeb Stood On His Tiptoes To Appear Taller In Photo At Debate


Jeb Stood On His Tiptoes To Appear Taller In Photo At Debate


Jeb Bush found a surefire way to put himself a head above the other candidates during Wednesday night’s debate – standing on his tiptoes.

As the Republican hopefuls lined up for their group shot, the 6’3″ Bush was caught on video glancing at Trump and then sneakily pushing himself up to add a few inches.

The trick made Bush – already the tallest person in the group shot – stand out just a little bit more from the other candidates.

GOP Rep. Mia Love Breaks Down In Tears While Talking About Planned Parenthood Videos

On the Planned Parenthood videos

Freshman Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, had to wipe away tears while talking about the undercover Planned Parenthood videos on the Fox Business network Wednesday night.

“It’s our job to protect those who do not have a voice to protect themselves, and to see what is actually happening to babies while they’re still alive, I mean, it’s horrific,” said Love.

“This is not about a Right or Left issue – this is right or wrong, and whether we are going to stand up for those who cannot speak for themselves, or if we’re going to just turn a blind eye and pretend that this is not happening,” she added, wiping away tears.

When asked about Iran .....She also says "I Am Going To Vote 'No' On This Iran Deal ".




Wild Thing's comment.......

The videos were horrific, anyone with a heart would cry when watching them.

Gov. Bobby Jindal Says Rand Paul Is Unfit To Be Commander-In-Chief

Governor Bobby Jindal was so incensed by Rand Paul's ISIS comments, that he jumped onto Sean Hannity's airwaves to express his outrage. Paul had blamed 'Republican Hawks' for 'creating' ISIS earlier in the day while speaking with MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.



Wild Thing's comment.............

Rand Paul needs to learn we have had enough of his shit and the same kind of thing from Obama and the left. I am fed up with Republican saying things thinking we will tolerate it from them because they are registered Republicans.

Sen. Sessions just released the following statement on why he voted NO on fast-track bill. God Bless Sessions



Sen. Jeff Sessions just released the following statement announcing a "no" vote on final Senate passage of the fast-track bill:

Senator Sessions Facebook page.......

“Under fast-track, Congress transfers its most basic legislative powers to the Executive for six years. Any yet-unseen global pacts, no matter how sweeping, are guaranteed a “fast-track” to congressional adoption. No amendments. No ability to strike any offending provision. And no chance to apply either the 60- or 67-vote thresholds used for important legislation and treaties.

I asked the President how his fast-tracked proposals would impact jobs, wages, and trade deficits. He would not answer. The bill’s promoters also refused to answer when asked whether their proposal would reduce net manufacturing jobs in the United States. That is because they know it will. Like the South Korean trade deal—which doubled our trade deficit after promises of a trade renaissance—this proposal will widen further our trade deficits and eliminate jobs.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership opens our markets to foreign imports, but allows foreign countries to continue closing their market to ours.

Our country has not been engaged in reciprocal free trade but, as the Chairman Emeritus of Nucor Steel explained, “the enablement of foreign mercantilism” and “unilateral trade disarmament.” We have allowed state-dominated and mercantilist trading partners to maintain their varied and elaborate non-tariff barriers, exporting their unemployment to our shores.

Stubbornly, our political elites have treated trade as a matter of religion. To them, there is no such thing as a bad deal. They know American workers lose jobs when we allow trading partners to cheat. But they insist it is all for the greater good. This is why the American worker keeps ending up on the losing end.

Fast-track will also lock into passage a new global governance authority known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission. Chartered with a “Living Agreement,” this new transnational commission will be able to amend the agreement after its adoption. Among other things, this could empower the President to expand the admission of foreign workers without congressional approval. We are creating another unelectable, unaccountable, unanswerable bureaucracy that can tie down and frustrate American sovereignty.

Congress is forgetting its duty: to improve jobs and wages for Americans.”




Wild Thing's comment............


God bless Senator Sessions!!!! I wish more of them would have done the NO vote like Sessions did but once again people were voted in and then they forget who put them there and what we want or do not want.

The rest of them full RINO and voted to gave Obama exactly what he wanted.

Jeb Bush Refuses to Say Any Criticism of Clinton Foreign Donation Scandal



Jeb Bush Refuses to Say Any Criticism of Clinton Foreign Donation Scandal


Despite the bipartisan criticism of the Clintons’ latest foreign donations-for-favors scandal that has brought serious consideration from media of all stripes, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush refused to jump into the fray to question the Clintons over the controversy.

Speaking at an event sponsored by the Manhattan GOP, Bush demurred from speaking too harshly about Clinton’s latest scandal.


The charges are being seriously investigated by several mainstream media outfits and are being given sober treatment by media outlets across the ideological spectrum.

About all Bush would say about the growing controversy is that Clinton is “going to have to be held accountable, like all of us, about dealings.” He added, “That’s part of the process, right?”

The one-time Florida Governor continued saying, “I don’t ‘go off’ on Hillary Clinton.”




Wild Thing's comment.........

Go away Jeb.


He used to be a Republican, I wonder why he does not run as a Democrat. Almost everything he says and wants are what a democrat would say.

And another thing he should know is that many democrats are really ticked off at Hillary and Bill for this latest scandal of theirs.

Jeb Bush CPAC 2015





Jeb Bush at CPAC 2015, where he chose the Q & A Format for his entire time period. He was interviewed by Sean Hannity. There was a walkout on the part of some after Bush took the stage. But Bush handled himself well as he answered the questions posed to him by Hannity.

Bush articulated that Conservatives must be “for” things and not just against things:
1. For sustained Economic Growth that help the Middle Classs
2. A strong National Defense

Hannity asked Bush about Immigration. Bush stood his ground that he supports a “Pathway to Citizenship” for illegals who are already in the country. But he also said the first order of business is to secure the borders to prevent the problem from continuing. He took the question head-on, and he got a lot of applause as well as boos from the crowd.

On “Common Core,” Bush said he does support high Education Standards, but he opposes it being Federal Government driven. It ought to be controlled by, and set by state and local Governments and School Boards..

Carly Fiorina took on Hillary Clinton in her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, questioning the former secretary of state's record and launching an apparent attack on contributions that her family's foundation received from foreign governments.

"Mrs. Clinton, please name an accomplishment," Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO and Senate candidate, said. "And in the meantime, please explain why we should accept that the millions and millions of dollars that have flowed into the Clinton Global Initiative from foreign governments does not represent a conflict of interest."

Sen. Ted Cruz at CPAC 2015 today, where he gave a rousing speech that was well-received. Cruz got some jabs in at Hillary Clinton, perhaps modeling some attacks that will be heard often against Hillary in the months to come.

Cruz said, “We could have had Hillary here. But we couldn’t find a Foreign nation to foot the bill.” Cruz was referencing the news that the Clinton Foundation takes money from Foreign Governments – an obvious conflict of interest for a person who wants to be President.

Great job, as usual, by Ted Cruz!

Check Out What Awesome Lt. Col. Allen West said about Jeb Bush



Lt. Col. Allen West, reacting to Jeb Bush’s announcement this last Tuesday that he’s seriously considering a 2016 presidential bid, used strong words to describe the politics of the former Republican Florida governor.

Appearing on FOX News with Sean Hannity, West, referring to Bush running against Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton, said that match is the last thing the country needs, labeling Jeb Bush a “big government progressive.”


“When you look at by the time we get to 2016, we’re going to have a country with $20 trillion in debt; we’re going to have a massive, bureaucratic, administrative, regulatory state, and the last thing we need to see is a big government, progressive Republican running against a bigger government progressive socialist Democrat.”


West asserted that the biggest problems for a Jeb Bush presidential candidacy are going to be his unacceptable positions on amnesty and Common Core.

Former President George H.W. Bush to Stay in Hospital a 3rd Night


Former President George H.W. Bush to Stay in Hospital a 3rd Night


Dallas Morning News


Despite having “another terrific day,” former President George H.W. Bush will spend a third night in a Texas hospital, his office announced on Christmas.

Bush, 90, is the nation’s oldest former president. His office said Tuesday night that he was taken to Houston Methodist Hospital “as a precaution” after experiencing shortness of breath.

The 41st president “is in great spirits” and wishes everyone a merry Christmas, his office said in a statement Thursday. He received visits from his wife, former first lady Barbara Bush, and from his son and daughter-in-law Neil and Maria Bush, it said.

This isn’t the first time Bush has been hospitalized over Christmas. In November 2012, he went to Houston Methodist with a persistent cough. He developed a fever and stayed nearly two months.

Family spokesman Jim McGrath said Thursday that the 90-year-old Bush remained at Houston Methodist Hospital. McGrath said Bush is "still doing well," but did not offer details.

Great speech by Sen. Mike Lee

I rise in opposition to the un-republican and undemocratic process by which a small collection of political and economic insiders crafted it, to benefit each other at everyone else’s expense. And finally, I rise in particular opposition to the signals this so-called CRomnibus sends.

Mary Landrieu Loses In Louisiana and Bill Cassidy's win stretches the GOP's gain in the Senate to nine seats



Mary Landrieu Loses In Louisiana and Bill Cassidy's win stretches the GOP's gain in the Senate to nine seats

Rep. Bill Cassidy defeated three-term Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu in Louisiana’s Senate runoff election Saturday night, stretching the GOP’s 2014 gains to nine seats and giving the party 54 senators starting next year.

Landrieu had finished first in the all-party primary a month ago but with only 42 percent of the vote, while the second-placed Cassidy and fellow Republican Rob Maness combined for a majority of the votes cast in November. Maness endorsed Cassidy for the runoff.

Landrieu's campaign poured most of its resources into that initial primary, hoping to win an outright majority victory while Republicans' votes were still divided and thus avoid a runoff. But after a weak showing in November and certainty of a Republican take-over of the Senate, fellow Democrats largely left Landrieu to fend for herself in the runoff.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee canceled its reserved TV advertising time for the runoff, while many of the most monied Democratic groups, such as environmental PACs and the pro-choice group EMILY's List, steered clear of the race because of Landrieu's stances on energy policy and abortion.

Cassidy, a physician and former state legislator, has been promised a position on the Senate's powerful energy committee that Landrieu now chairs. Landrieu argued during the campaign that the chairmanship gave her the clout to deliver for Louisiana oil and gas interests. But voters focused more on Landrieu's vote for Obamacare and support for other Democratic policies.

What Newly Elected Senator Joni Ernst Did 2 Days After the Election Tells Us All About Her Character



What Newly Elected Senator Joni Ernst Did 2 Days After the Election Tells Us All About Her Character

Joni Ernst was elected Iowa’s first female U.S. Senator on Tuesday and was in uniform and on duty with the Iowa National Guard on Thursday.

Lt. Col. Joni Ernst has been juggling her civilian and military lives since joining the National Guard in 1993. She is on duty every week, according to her husband Gail, who told National Review:

Not many folks know she is in uniform on Thursday and Friday. She does it without fanfare.

Ernst, a combat veteran in Operation Iraqi Freedom, has told the Guard she wants no special treatment, but had to re-schedule her drilling from last weekend to till after the election.[...]

Her National Guard duty made it hard on the campaign trail. She stepped away from the campaign for a week to drill over the summer.

Joni Ernst speaks for many Americans who think service, honor, and country should be top priority for every single U.S. elected official. She not only talks about it, she’s doing it.

Mr. Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College who called his win a “miracle,” defeated Mr. Cantor by 56 percent to 44 percent with all precincts reporting. CNN and The Associated Press called the race just a little over an hour after Virginia polls closed at 7 p.m.

Charles Krauthammer: Jeb Bush’s Comments on Illegal Immigrants “Kinda Bizarre” - It is because he is NOT a Conservative



Charles Krauthammer: Jeb Bush’s Comments on Illegal Immigrants “Kinda Bizarre”

Conservative author, columnist and pundit Charles Krauthammer blasted former governor Jeb Bush tonight on Special Report. Charles said Jeb’s comments on illegal immigrants “acting out of love” was “kinda bizarre.”

“If he was feeling optimism before the interview I think it was gone after the interview. And, I don’t think its a matter of fire in the belly, or if he’ll be tough enough or mean enough on the Democrats. I mean that statement he made about illegal immigrants being an “act of love” is kind of bizarre. I grant him the complete sincerity and honesty of his view. He’s always had that kind of approach. But that’s leading with your chin. After all, there are millions of people around the world equally compassionate about the future of their children who are waiting patiently and legally in line.”

No Way, Forget about it GOP!!! GOP donors reportedly working to draft Jeb Bush for 2016 presidential run



GOP donors reportedly working to draft Jeb Bush for 2016 presidential run


A group of top Republican donors have reportedly begun an intense effort to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the race for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016.

A Washington Post report quotes one major donor as saying that the "vast majority" of the top 100 givers to 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney would back Bush in a nomination fight.

Earlier this week, Bush met privately with casino magnate and GOP donor Sheldon Adelson and addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition's senior members at a dinner held Thursday at Adelson's company airport hangar. The Post, citing a donor in attendance at the dinner, reported that the crowd of about 60 guests applauded when one told Bush, "I hope you run for President in 2016."

‘Patriots Rally for Freedom’ to Kick Off in Central Texas Today Saturday March 15th




‘Patriots Rally for Freedom’ to Kick Off in Central Texas Saturday


A large group of liberty-loving Texans will gather this Saturday outside San Marcos, Texas, on Saturday, March 15 to participate in a “Patriots Rally for Freedom” event that will feature a slate of well-known Texas conservatives. The event will feature liberty performers like Krista Branch, Clifton Jansky and Project Hayseed, along with around thirty speakers on a variety of topics related to conservative values.

According to a press release from event organizers, the “Patriots Rally for Freedom” event is co-founded by two ladies named Linda Buckmaster and Kate Beecham. They call for Americans to “Leave their ‘party hats’ and labels at the gate and unite for America.”

“As Goes Texas-So Goes America,” Linda explained. “The facts are these: 50% of America is on government assistance because of a crumbling economy and overwhelming debt. Our military is being gutted for partisan politics. Texas currently has 38 Electoral Votes for the Presidential election. With the state’s three largest cities now being run by Democrats, Texas is now at a tipping point politically. We are hosting this event to rally the conservative base, unite the RIGHT in order to win as many House and U.S. Senate seats as we can, and retain the conservative governorship of Texas. “
Gary Campbell, another event organizer said in a message to Breitbart Texas, “We bring 30 Speakers in Groups of Expertise to create a "Big Picture" for those confused by "Crisis Deflection" rather than Leadership. We are seeking to reinforce the already common sense decision a majority already feel. The Sleeping Giant is Awake; we seek to Unite and Direct a Red Tide across America.”

The list of confirmed speakers includes; Women on the Wall’s Alice Linahan, former U.S. Senate candidate Dwayne Stoval, former Congressional candidate Katrina Pierson, Dr. Kris Held, Wayne Dupree from NewsNinja.com, TEA Party Community co-founder Ken Crow, Remembrance Project co-founder Maria Espinoza, political news contributor Candice Lanier, Selling U.S. Out author J.R. Martin and many others.

Also to be there.......Lt. Col. Roy White, USAF, Ret. After retiring from the Air Force in 1999 after three combat tours as an A-10 fighter pilot and 20 years of honorable service, Lt Col Roy White began a new career as a commercial airline pilot. However he was haunted by the two very different “isms” he had fought against; Commun”ism” for his first 10 years was well defined; its tactics and objectives


According to the event’s website, other invited speakers include, Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Rick Perry, Governor Scott Walker, Governor Susana Martinez, Former Governor Sarah Palin, and Republican gubernatorial nominee Greg Abbott.

“Entertainment will be a key highlight of the event,” Linda said. “American Idol contestant and recording artist Krista Branch is performing and holding a concert along with a great patriotic band named “Project Hayseed” will also be entertaining throughout the day. The event is free to the public and gates will open at 9:00 am. There is a $10 parking fee, barbecue and snacks will be available for purchase, and we encourage everyone to bring their lawn chairs and sunscreen.”

Hope they have a good turn out, the line up of speakers etc. looks good.

Exclusive--Tea Party Movement to Celebrate Five Years of Victories




Exclusive--Tea Party Movement to Celebrate Five Years of Victories


Breitbart News has learned that the Tea Party movement will celebrate its five-year anniversary with a blockbuster event on February 27 in Washington, D.C. that will bring together Tea Party conservatives in Congress with local activists and movement leaders from across the nation.

The Tea Party Patriots will organize the event that will reflect on why the movement formed, the significant victories it has achieved, and the road ahead as it comes under assault by the institutional left and even the Republican establishment that wants to preserve the status quo.

“It’s amazing to think of all the things we have accomplished in the last five years, but there is much more work ahead," Tea Party Patriots co-founder and National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin told Breitbart News. "This event will be a great opportunity for assessment but more importantly to map out a strategy for the next five years and beyond.”

Speakers will include unwavering conservative Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), who knocked off incumbent Sen. Bob Bennett in 2010 to show the strength of the Tea Party, D.C; Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN), who led the fight against Obamacare in the House; Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who has been a fierce opponent of amnesty; and Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Mark Meadows (R-NC), Jim Bridenstine (R-OK), and Matt Salmon (R-AZ).

Other speakers will include Tea Party activists like True the Vote's Catherine Englebrecht, who was targeted by the IRS after she was involved in the movement; Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin, who has relentlessly organized on behalf of Tea Party conservatives across the nation; Tea Party Patriots' Keli Carender, who organized the first protest just 72 hours after Rick Santelli's rant that galvanized the formation of the movement; Breitbart contributor Michael Patrick Leahy, who organized the first call to coordinate efforts among various Tea Party leaders; and local Tea Party leaders like Mark Herr.

The Tea Party movement officially formed in 2009 in response to the reckless and profligate bailouts and stimulus and immediately organized to fight against the government takeover of health care. Though Obamacare ultimately passed, much of what the Tea Party movement predicted would happen if the monstrous bill were adopted is coming to fruition.

The Tea Party is often described as a "vibrant movement of liberty loving Americans determined to protect their freedoms from an ever growing federal government" that seeks to "educate Americans about the importance of having a constitutionally limited, fiscally responsible government that preserves an environment for free markets to thrive."

While the IRS decided to target Tea Party groups as they were gaining strength, the Republican establishment initially dismissed the movement and thought it would dissipate even after the Tea Party dragged Republicans back to power in the House in the historic 2010 midterm elections.

That soon changed, though, as the Republican establishment--like Karl Rove's Crossroads groups and former Rep. Steve LaTourette's Main Street Partnership (a group that is funded by union money)--and groups frustrated by the Tea Party, like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, became threatened by the movement's success. Instead of embracing the movement like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the Republican establishment decided to devote millions to wage war against the Tea Party.

Despite being attacked by Republicans, the movement continues to thrive and frustrate the ambitions of the political class in Washington, D.C.'s "Boomtown" despite the GOP establishment. Last week, the White House conceded that President Barack Obama was damaged in 2013 because of his legislative failures, particularly on amnesty, gun control, and excessive government spending on the Farm Bill and food stamps. The Tea Party movement fiercely opposed all of those initiatives while many in the Republican establishment did not.

Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow reflected on the importance of the Tea Party movement, saying that the mainstream press can be defeated and Americans can put the country back on the right track if the Tea Party movement is energized to combat the institutional advantages Democrats currently have in the media, academia, and pop culture.

The movement, which also despised the big-government domestic policies of the Bush administration, congealed after CNBC's Rick Santelli went on his rant on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on February 19, 2009 against a federal government that he said promotes bad behavior with bailouts for its cronies while leaving taxpayers holding the bag.

The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM EST on February 27.

Carender, the national grassroots coordinator for the Tea Party Patriots, said that Tea Party activists will not want to "miss this and I have no doubt that you will be inspired by the activists who are set to speak at the event."

"What is so great about our movement is that we have the greatest activists in the country," she told Breitbart News. "I just wish there was more time so that we could highlight all of them."

Mark Levin on the Republican Party....





"Reagan talked about it in the 70's when he was fighting the Ford wing of the Republican party. That is what we are fighting , this is another fight. It is the Ford wing of the Republican party vs. the Reaganites. That is what we conservatives are that is what the Tea party is all about. So it the rise of the Reaganites against the Ford wing once again. Phrase it any way we wish. These people are very comfortable with big government. Listen to Mitch McConnell he does not have a clue he does not have an argument, he does not have a cause.Nothing! Listen to Boehner, the only time he got emotional was when he was screaming at conservatives. "




Wild Thing's comment............

I tried typing out what Mark said, he is right and that is why we see some Republicans attacking conservatives that thank Ted Cruz and Mike Lee for example. Those doing the attacks are the Ford wing of the party. They call themselves conservatives but if they are why do they hate and attack the tea party, why do they hate anyone that calls a liberal Republican a rino. I have seen these Ford wing Republicans calling we conservatives morons, and a constant bashing across the board of those of us that want those we elect to stand strong and not weaken when they get to Washington.

Mark gave an excellent explanation of this IMO. It explains a lot to me, I have been shocked to see some people going after in full attack mode of let's say Ted Cruz when he was doing what we asked him to do and fight back against Obamacare. That was so horrible how some in our party have been attacking him. sheesh.And at the same time these same people seldom are attacking Obama or anyone on the left......... really weird and certainly not what a conservative would be doing.

Allen West: “As Conservatives, We Don’t Care About The Color of Your Skin, We Care About The Color of Our Flag”


Allen West: “As Conservatives, We Don’t Care About The Color of Your Skin, We Care About The Color of Our Flag”


Allen West headed to Amsterdam Tuesday to embark on National Review’s conservative summer cruise, saying he owes his success as a “young black man” to the nature of his character.

“I was invited to be a guest speaker with a premier assembly of conservative thinkers,” the Republican wrote. “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be proud to know that a young black man born and raised in his same neighborhood rose based upon character. It is this equality of opportunity that is great about America … not President Obama’s phony rhetoric of inequality which is no more than equality of outcomes — social egalitarianism.”


Mr. West has been particularly vocal about racial tension since George Zimmerman was acquitted more than two weeks ago in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

“I would hope William F. Buckley Jr. and Dr. King are smiling above as the embodiment of conservatism and the civil rights movement has come to fruition. The nature of conservatism is that it sees no color. The nature of liberal progressivism is that color is all it sees,” he concluded.


On Sunday, Mr. West wrote, “as conservatives, we don’t care about the color of your skin, we care about the color of our flag.”

Liz Cheney: Opposition to Obama's Radical Agenda Is Not Obstruction, It's Patriotism






Liz Cheney was on Happening Now this morning to discuss her editorial in the Wall Street Journal where she called Barack Obama the most radical president in history. Cheney said, "My point in this oped was to say, "Wait a second!" When you have a president who's embarked on such a dangerous path, whether you want to talk about domestic policy, ignoring the debt, trying to trample on our Second Amendment rights, on our religious freedom, national security, weakening this nation... Across the board his policies are so dangerous that it is not obstructionism to block them, I think, it is indeed patriotism.

Fox News Hires Former US Rep. Allen West


Fox News Hires Former US Rep. Allen West


n May 16, Fox News announced it had hired former Florida Representative Allen West as a contributor to offer political commentary during the network's daytime and prime time shows.

In a statement, Executive Vice President of Programming Bill Shine said, "Representative West’s congressional and military experience along with his fearless approach to voicing key issues will provide a valuable point of view to the FOX News lineup."

West is currently the Director of Next Generation TV Programming with PJ Media; until the 2012 elections, he was Florida's congressman from the 22nd District, a seat he won in 2010. West lost his seat last year, largely due to redistricting. Prior to that, West was a 22-year veteran of the United States Army, retiring as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2004.

Rep. West was recently mentioned as an ideal candidate to replace Florida Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll, who resigned in March.

Sen. Ted Cruz Stands Up for Americans Against the Internet Sales Tax


Here is video of Sen. Ted Cruz today rising on the Senate Floor to stand up for Americans against the Internet Sales Tax legislation. Cruz gave a great speech, and said the bill will “hurt economic growth,” and will in effect, “create a national internet sales tax.” Cruz said this is the last thing we ought to be doing at a time of economic hardship. He just destroys the legislation, pointing out how it will be a devastating and unsustainable burden of compliance for so many small businesses to collect the correct sales tax amount and send it to more than 9,600 different jurisdictions. They would also be subject to audits by every one of those jurisdictions.

Cruz nails it when he points out this bill is driven by the big-box retailers and gigantic online retailers because they want to drive the smaller competitors out of business.


Unfortunately the Senate passed internet sales tax bill amid opposition from conservatives

Black Conservatives at Hannity Townhall: ‘Liberals Believe They Own Black America’








Black Conservatives In Explosive Hannity Townhall: ‘Liberals Believe They Own Black America’


On Monday night’s Hannity show, over two dozen black conservatives participated in a townhall discussion, addressing what it is like to be a black conservative in America.

The show kicked off with Sean Hannity interviewing Dr. Ben Carson. Hannity asked Dr. Carson what kind of insults he has received since coming out publicly as a conservative. Carson noted:

Some of the words cannot be used. It’s really kind of sad. I feel more sorrowful for the people who do that, than I feel angry for them. I represent something that they just can’t quite get their heads around: ‘How can you be black and not march lock-step behind the [airquote] leaders?’ ‘How can you think for yourself?’ ‘And how can you actually have some ideals that actually make sense that don’t agree with their leaders?’ I am very hopeful that this a trend that will be broken. I’m going to continue to speak out. Of course, there is an old trick that you ostracize, you ridicule, you isolate, and you keep repeating…. I’m not sure it’s going to work quite frankly because I don’t plan on going anywhere.


In a gripping moment, when Hannity asked the townhall participants how many have been “called horrible names because of [their] conservatism,” every participant’s hand shot up.

Dr. Carson noted that this demonstrates to him that “the very people who love to talk about tolerance are some of the least tolerant people there are.”

Hannity and Dr. Carson then discussed Hannity’s recent remarks that black conservatives have no freedom of speech, with Dr. Carson agreeing and expanding on Hannity’s point:


One of the founding principles of our nation is freedom of speech and freedom of expression. And yet they are so many people who are afraid to talk. I’ve gotten so many emails and letters from people who say ‘I support you 100% but please let this remain anonymous.’ Why? Because they don’t want to have the fiery darts thrown at them.

Following the brief interview, Hannity opened up the discussion to the townhall participants, consisting of an array of black conservative ‘all-stars,’ such as Star Parker, David Webb, Ron Christie, Jesse Petterson, Kevin Jackson, Deneen Borelli, Crystal Wright, and Reginald Jones, among others.

The lively discussion ranged from the attacks and smears they face as a result of their political affiliation, to the reasons for their political beliefs, and the challenges they face.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley noted the racist comments that often emerge from the Left, as well as the “double standard” applied to black conservatives:

There’s a need on the Left to almost psycho-analyze black conservatives, put ‘em on the couch. In other words, Justice Scalia’s views on affirmative action are simply wrong but Clarence Thomas is a self-hating, self-loathing traitor to his race. There’s a double standard. And I think the reason you have that is… if you can psycho-analyze someone, de-legitimize them, you don’t have to take on their ideas… and that’s what the Left tries to do to black conservatives.

Hannity noted that each of them is a “profile in courage.”

Kevin Jackson, Executive Director of The Black Sphere, noted that Vice President Joe Biden’s comment about going into the “black sections” of his town, as an example of the level of racism on the Left that is simply dismissed or allowed.

Project 21’s Reginald Jones spoke on the threat to liberals’ “ownership” of black America, stating: “What Dr. Carson and everybody in here represents is a threat to their sense of ownership. Liberals, in total, believe that they own black America….”

Radio host David Webb added that the Left requires allies of “convenience” and victims, stating: “It’s about power and control.”

The spirited discussion was emotional at times, with Deneen Borelli wiping away tears near the end of the show.

Hannity expressed plans to hold an additional townhall on this issue, prompting cheers of agreement from the participants.



Wild Thing's comment................

I am so glad Hannity did this. The only sad thing is too many then need to see it won't.

Liz Cheney: “Those Who Advocate More Liberal Policies For The GOP Are Wrongheaded Or Democrats, Or Both”


Liz Cheney: “Those Who Advocate More Liberal Policies For The GOP Are Wrongheaded Or Democrats, Or Both”


Liz Cheney: Republicans, Get Over the 2012 Loss—and Start Fighting Back



“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well-taught lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don’t do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it once was like in America when men were free.”—Ronald Reagan, March 30, 1961

President Reagan’s words, spoken 52 years ago this weekend, still ring true, with one modification. If we don’t defend our freedoms now against the onslaught of President Obama’s policies, we won’t have to wait until our sunset years for American freedom to be a distant memory.

These days Washington careens from crisis to crisis, most of them manufactured. The Obama White House and its allies are engaged in the kind of sky-is-falling melodrama normally reserved for the lives of teenage girls. (As the mother of teenage girls, I speak with authority on this, though the comparison does a disservice to teenagers.) With our attention diverted by each fiscal cliff or sequestration drama, we are at risk of missing the real threats to the republic.

President Obama is the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office. The national debt, which he is intent on increasing, has passed $16 trillion. He believes that more government borrowing and spending are the solution to every problem. He seems unaware that the free-enterprise system has lifted more people out of poverty than any other economic system devised by man.

Perhaps his ignorance of that fact explains his hostility toward the private sector. In one of his autobiographies, the president writes that he felt “like a spy behind enemy lines” during his brief stint working for private industry.

The president has launched a war on Americans’ Second Amendment rights. He has launched a war on religious freedom. He has launched a war on fossil fuels. He is working to nationalize one-sixth of the economy with job-killing ObamaCare. He wants to collect a greater portion of every American paycheck, not for the purpose of paying down the national debt but to expand his governing machine. He doesn’t believe in creating a bigger pie with more opportunity for all. He believes in greater redistribution of a much smaller pie. If you’re unsure of what this America would look like, Google “Cyprus” or “Greece.” [...]

In the face of this reality, it is time for Republicans to get over their loss in 2012. We are all that stands between this president’s policies and a damaged and diminished America. It is time to get back in the fight.

And I do mean fight. Republicans are being counseled to move the party to the left, but in my experience, those who advocate more liberal policies for the GOP are wrongheaded or Democrats, or both. You can be sure that President Obama would welcome an America in which the Republican Party is preoccupied with remaking itself into a watered-down version of the Democrats.

It is time to defend our values with vigor and courage. We are conservatives. We believe in limited government, low taxes, a strong national defense, individual freedoms, self-reliance, the importance of the family, and the miracle and authority of America’s founding documents. We know that government is best that governs least and governs closest to the people. We know that the private sector is the engine of economic growth. We know that America is the exceptional nation, the best that has ever existed. We know that the men and women who wear the uniform of the U.S. military are the greatest fighting force and the greatest force for good that the world has ever known.

We know that preventing this president from enacting devastating policies is not obstructionism. It is patriotism.

The miracle of the Constitution resides to a large extent in the first three words, "We the People," placing sovereignty with us, not with our rulers. We are the inheritors of these blessings of liberty, and it is our solemn duty to fight for, protect and defend our freedom. Now is the time to pick ourselves up, brush ourselves off, and man the barricades for freedom.

Ted Cruz Gets Holder to Admit That Killing Americans with Drones on U.S. Soil Is Unconstitutional




Ted Cruz Takes Over For Rand Paul’s Filibuster Of Brennan…and Eric Holder on Drones.


.



On Wednesday, testifying before a Senate panel, Holder was prodded repeatedly about this assertion by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Holder eventually admitted that it would not be constitutional to execute an American citizen without due process.

RELATED: Obama Administration: Yes, The President Can Drone Strike Americans On U.S. Soil…

“In your legal judgment, does the Constitution allow a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil to be killed by a drone?” Cruz asked Holder pointedly.

“For sitting in a café and having a cup of coffee?” Holder replied. Cruz clarified that his hypothetical individual subject to a drone strike did not pose an “imminent and immediate threat of death and bodily harm,” but that person is suspected to be a terrorist.

“I would not think that that would be an appropriate use of any kind of lethal force,” Holder replied.

“With all respect, Gen. Holder, my question wasn’t about appropriateness or prosecutorial discretion. It was a simple legal question,” Cruz clarified.

“This is a hypothetical, but I would not think, that in that situation, the use of a drone or lethal force would not be appropriate,” Holder replied.

“I have to tell you I find it remarkable that in that hypothetical, which is deliberately very simple, you are not able to give a simple, one-word answer: no,” Cruz added. He said he think that his scenario would constitute a “deprivation of life without due process.”

Holder agreed and added that lethal force in Cruz’s case “would not be appropriate.”

“You keep saying appropriate – my question isn’t about propriety,” Cruz goaded. “My question is about whether something is constitutional or not.”

When Cruz was about to abandon his line of questioning after a number of equivocations from Holder, the attorney general clarified that he was saying “no” such actions would not be constitutional.

Awesome and He Should Be Our President....Mitt Romney Compares Obama to Failed Roman Emperor: “Nero Is Fiddling!”




Mitt Romney and Ann Romney went on FOX News Sunday for their first major interview since the November election. Mitt compared Barack Obama’s leadership skills to that of a failed Roman emperor.

Why? Why would you not want to have the flexibility to do what is right for the country? The only answer that comes back is that there may be more interested in showing pain and saying, “See what the other guys did!” Look, this is the country. This is America we’re talking about at a critical time. And, Nero is fiddling. Come on guys focus on getting America through a difficult time.

A Peek at Awesome Mitt Romney, in an exclusive interview with "Fox News Sunday," Showing Tomorrow ( Sunday)




Watch the Romneys on "Fox News Sunday" at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET on Fox News Channel -- check local listings for Sunday morning airtimes.

Mitt Romney, in an exclusive interview with "Fox News Sunday," said Washington is letting a “golden moment just slip away with politics,” as he described watching the unfurling fiasco over the sequester. He described it as the “hardest” part about losing in November.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee and his wife Ann spoke extensively with "Fox News Sunday" in their first post-election interview.

Romney said the automatic spending cuts which take effect Friday should be seen as an “opportunity” to finally solve America’s fiscal problems – by coming together on a “long-term fiscal” package.

“I mean I see this as this huge opportunity and it's being squandered by politics, by -- by people who are more interested in a political victory than they are in doing what's right for the country. And it's very frustrating, I have to tell you,” he said. “The hardest thing about losing is watching this -- this critical moment, this golden moment just slip away with politics.”

Romney criticized Obama, his former campaign rival, for “flying around the country and berating Republicans and blaming and pointing.”

“The president has the opportunity to lead the nation and to bring Republicans and Democrats together. It's a job he's got to do and it's a job only the president can do,” Romney said.

Joining other Republicans who say the administration is making the sequester seem worse than it is, Romney criticized the administration for recently releasing low-priority illegal immigrants from Arizona jails.



Wild Thing's comment.................

I am really looking forward to seeing this interview in full tomorrow. Things would be so much better if Romney had won. We would have a real President for one thing and not someone that hated our beloved country.

Dr. Ben Carson On Criticizing Obamacare: “Somebody Has To Stand Up To The Bullies”



Dr. Ben Carson On Criticizing Obamacare: “Somebody Has To Stand Up To The Bullies”

DR. BENJAMIN CARSON: There are a group of people who would like to silence everybody and have everybody go along to get along, but that's not going to be very helpful for us in the long run, in terms of solving our problems. And somebody has to be courageous enough to actually stand up to, you know, the bullies.

DR. CARSON: One of the things I also said during the speech is there will be some people who will say, 'but you’re a doctor and you’re a surgeon, you should be sticking to that.' And I mentioned the fact that five physicians signed the Declaration of Independence and were involved in the framing of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and several other things.

There’s absolutely no reason at all that physicians, scientists, shouldn’t be involved in things that affect all of us. We’re people who've learned how to make decisions based on facts, empirical data, rather than on ideology, and one of the geniuses, one of the real things that made us a great nation, is that we brought people from all backgrounds into the legislative process. So that all of us would be able to place our interests there and we've gone significantly away from that.

And no one goes up to a lawyer and says why are you getting involved in this, that and the other thing. I don't see why they would say it to a physician, who has more education than anyone else in society.

DR. CARSON: There’s no question that [President Obama] has advocated, you know, basically a policy of tax the rich. And I have advocated a policy that comes from the Bible, which is a very fair policy of proportional taxation. If it was good enough for God, why wouldn’t it be good enough for us? The minute you deviate away from that, you begin to get into all kinds of biases. And one could legitimately make the argument that the rich pays too many taxes. The top 1% pays 37% of the taxes, the top 5% [pays] 59% of the taxes, but they don't make that much of the income. One could make that argument.

NEIL CAVUTO, FOX NEWS: Obviously, you got a quite a round of applause there. Some in that room and elsewhere since that video has gone viral have said you should run for president. What do you think of that?

DR. BENJAMIN CARSON: Well, actually I've had people tell me that for many years now. If I had a nickel for everybody who told me that, I could finance my campaign.

CAVUTO: You and me both. You and me both. Your reaction to that is what? I mean, you don't think that's for you? You want to be a doctor and help people, what?

DR. CARSON: I've always said if God grabs me by the collar and sticks me in that arena, that's the only way that I'll do it. But, no, I'm actually going to retire in June from surgery. I will still teach, I will still be involved, but I'm going to retire from surgery, so it does open up a lot of possibilities for me. I'm very focused on education and getting the populace back to where it used to be -- like back in 1831 when Alexis de Tocqueville was so impressed -- because an uneducated populace will fall for anything.

And if you and you talk to most people, they mean well but they don't have much of a breadth of education, of knowledge, of understanding of what the real issues are and, therefore, they listen to pundits on television who tell them what they're supposed to think and they keep repeating that and pretty soon they say, 'Oh, well that must be true.'

Sean Hannity and Michelle Malkin vs. Juan Williams on the Issue of Obama’s ‘Lies’





Sean Hannity and Michelle Malkin vs. Juan Williams on the Issue of Obama’s ‘Lies’


Fox News host Sean Hannity highlighted President Barack Obama’s “lies” during his show on Wednesday. He began by playing a compilation video of the president pledging not to “take a dime from lobbyists,” promising to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term and promising to close Guantanamo Bay, among other things.

Obama failed to fulfill any of those promises — and not even his supporters would try to argue otherwise.

Hannity argued that Obama didn’t follow through on additional promises as well, including failing to prevent middle class tax increases (payroll tax hike) and imposing increased health care costs on Americans.

“When it comes to Obamacare, the CBO projects that by 2022, 7 million Americans will not be able to keep their employer insurance program thanks to Obamacare,” Hannity said.

Fox News political analyst Juan Williams defended Obama’s health care law, saying that everyone knew the health care overhaul would be implemented in stages and associated costs are inevitable, just like they were with Social Security and Medicare.

Michelle Malkin was not as easy on the president. In fact, she called the president the “lying liar in chief.”

“Could you spell it out any clearer in all of those soundbites the comparison between what he promised and what people are getting?” Malkin began, adding that even unions are trying to get opt of Obamacare.

Malkin also lamented the payroll tax hikes that hit the middle class.

Good for Michelle Malkin.

Happy Birthday President Ronald Reagan - America's Greatest President!!!





Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction


"Our Founding Fathers, here in this country, brought about the only true revolution that has ever taken place in man's history. Every other revolution simply exchanged one set of rulers for another set of rulers. But only here did that little band of men so advanced beyond their time that the world has never seen their like since, evolve the idea that you and I have within ourselves the God-given right and the ability to determine our own destiny. But freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well thought lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don't do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it once was like in America when men were free. Thank you"

Ed Meese: Reagan Could Teach Obama Much About Constitution




With Ronald Reagan’s birthday approaching on Wednesday, Feb. 6, his former Attorney General Edwin Meese shares with Newsmax his remembrances of the 40th president — and says President Obama could learn a lot from the Gipper’s legacy.

Meese headed the Justice Department from 1985 to 1988 and was also a Reagan adviser and member of the National Security Council during the Reagan administration. He currently holds the Ronald Reagan Chair in Public Policy at the Heritage Foundation and is Chairman of Heritage’s Center for Legal and Judicial Studies.

“I remember Ronald Reagan as one of our greatest presidents,” Meese tells Newsmax.


“He was a man of good humor, a great sense of humor, great optimism; a man who led the country successfully out of the depths of a serious recession, one of the most serious economic crises we’ve had since the 1930s; a man who developed a foreign policy that ultimately led to the end of the Cold War; a man who built up our national defense strength and who served the country very well, and that’s why he is regarded by so many of our people as one of the nation’s greatest presidents.”


Asked if he could compare and contrast Reagan’s presidency with that of President Obama.......


Meese responds: “I really can’t because there’s no comparison.”



As for what Obama could learn from Reagan’s legacy
,


Meese observes: “He could learn a lot about the Constitution and following the Constitution. He can learn about having a foreign policy that serves America’s best interests, as well as the interests of peace in the world. He can learn a lot about spending controls and he can learn a lot about having an economic program and a domestic program that follows the precepts of limited government as well as promoting individual liberty and freedom.


“So there’s an awful lot he could learn, but so far he hasn’t indicated any intent to learn.”

Meese also tells Newsmax about Reagan’s widow Nancy Reagan and what she’s doing to keep President Reagan’s legacy alive.

“I’ve spoken with her a few months ago and I’ve kept in touch with the Reagan Library people and her staff. So I keep up on how she’s doing and she’s doing an excellent job of promoting properly the legacy of her husband.

“She has been very active in the work of the presidential foundation, the presidential library. The last time I was actually with her was out there at the library and she’s certainly carried on in excellent fashion in terms of President Reagan’s legacy.”


Wild Thing's comment....................

Thank you Ed Meese. President Reagan was truly the best and greatest president in my lifetime.

Marco Rubio: I Disagree with Colin Powell’s Assessment of the Republican Party Today

Appearing on “The Andrea Tantaros Show” this morning, Sen. Marco Rubio pushed back at Colin Powell’s contention on “Meet the Press” that the GOP has “a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the party.”

“I disagree with General Powell’s assessment of the Republican Party today,” Rubio said.

“The Republican Party is the party that [has] placed two Hispanics in the U.S. Senate,” Rubio told Tantaros, “and we have an African-American senator in the United States Senate.”

Charles Durning, WW11 Veteran, awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts, and Actor Passes Away R.I.P.




He portrayed everyone from blustery public officials to comic foils to put-upon everyman.

Charles Durning, the two-time Oscar nominee who was dubbed the king of the character actors for his skill in playing everything from a Nazi colonel to the pope, died Monday in New York City. He was 89.

Durning's longtime agent and friend Judith Moss told the Associated Press that he died of natural causes at his home in the borough of Manhattan.

"I was born a character actor," Durning told USA TODAY in 1990, when he starred as Big Daddy in a Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. "I was born looking older — and I've been aging since I was a teenager."

"The actor's actor," as Durning was eulogized by Henry Winkler on Twitter after his death, he portrayed everyone from blustery public officials to comic foils to put-upon everymen. But he may be best remembered by movie audiences for his Oscar-nominated, over-the-top role as a comically corrupt governor in 1982's The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

Many critics marveled that such a heavyset man could be so nimble in the film's show-stopping song-and-dance number, not realizing Durning had been a dance instructor early in his career. Indeed, he had met his first wife, Carol, when both worked at a dance studio.

The year after Best Little Whorehouse, Durning received another Oscar nomination, for his portrayal of a bumbling Nazi officer in Mel Brooks' To Be or Not to Be. He was also nominated for a Golden Globe as the harried police lieutenant in 1975's Dog Day Afternoon.

He won a Golden Globe as best supporting TV actor in 1991 for his portrayal of John "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald in the TV film The Kennedys of Massachusetts and a Tony in 1990 for his Hot Tin Roof role.

Durning had begun his career on stage, getting his first big break when theatrical producer Joseph Papp hired him for the New York Shakespeare Festival.

He went on to work regularly, if fairly anonymously, through the 1960s until his breakout role as a small town mayor in the Pulitzer- and Tony Award-winning play That Championship Season in 1972.

He quickly made an impression on movie audiences the following year as the crooked cop stalking con men Paul Newman and Robert Redford in the Oscar-winning comedy The Sting.

Dozens of notable portrayals followed. He was the would-be suitor of Dustin Hoffman, posing as a female soap opera star in Tootsie; the infamous seller of frog legs in The Muppet Movie; and Chief Brandon in Warren Beatty's Dick Tracy. He played Santa Claus in four different movies made for television and was the pope in the TV film I Would Be Called John: Pope John XXIII.

"I never turned down anything and never argued with any producer or director," Durning told the Associated Press in 2008, when he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Other films included The Front Page, The Hindenburg, Breakheart Pass, North Dallas Forty, Starting Over, Tough Guys, Home for the Holidays,Spy Hard and O Brother Where Art Thou?.

Durning also did well in television as a featured performer as well as a guest star. He appeared in the short-lived series The Cop and the Kid (1975), Eye to Eye (1985) and First Monday (2002) as well as the four-season Evening Shade in the 1990s.

"If I'm not in a part, I drive my wife crazy," he acknowledged during a 1997 interview. "I'll go downstairs to get the mail, and when I come back I'll say, 'Any calls for me?'"

Durning's rugged early life provided ample material on which to base his later portrayals. He was born into an Irish family of 10 children in 1923, in Highland Falls, New York, a town near West Point. His father was unable to work, having lost a leg and been gassed during World War I, so his mother supported the family by washing the uniforms of West Point cadets.

The younger Durning himself would barely survive World War II.

He was among the first wave of U.S. soldiers to land at Normandy during the D-Day invasion and the only member of his Army unit to survive. He killed several Germans and was wounded in the leg. Later he was bayoneted by a young German soldier whom he killed with a rock. He was captured in the Battle of the Bulge and survived a massacre of prisoners.

In later years, he refused to discuss the military service for which he was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts."Too many bad memories," he told an interviewer in 1997. "I don't want you to see me crying."

"They train you to do awful things, then they release you and wonder why you are so bitter and angry," Durning told USA TODAY in 1994, when he narrated the Discovery Channel's Normandy: The Great Crusade. "Scars that you have from wounds heal. Scars that you have mentally never heal."

"There's no nobility with war. It's tear-'em-up destruction that leaves you frustrated, bitter and angry. ... If you really knew what it was like for an hour, you wouldn't want anyone to go through it."

In later years, he refused to discuss the military service for which he was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts.

"Too many bad memories," he told an interviewer in 1997. "I don't want you to see me crying."

Tragedy also stalked other members of his family. Durning was 12 when his father died, and five of his sisters lost their lives to smallpox and scarlet fever.

A high school counselor told him he had no talent for art, languages or math and should learn office skills. But after seeing King Kong and some of James Cagney's films, Durning knew what he wanted to do.

Leaving home at 16, he worked in a munitions factory, on a slag heap and in a barbed-wire factory. When he finally found work as a burlesque theater usher in Buffalo, he studied the comedians' routines, and when one of them showed up too drunk to go on one night, he took his place.

He would recall years later that he was hooked as soon as heard the audience laughing. He told the AP in 2008 that he had no plans to stop working.

"They're going to carry me out, if I go," he said.

Durning and his first wife had three children before divorcing in 1972. In 1974, he married his high school sweetheart, Mary Ann Amelio.

He is survived by his children, Michele, Douglas and Jeannine. The family plans a private family service and burial at Arlington National Cemetery.


.


from wiki:

Durning served in the U.S. Army during World War II. Drafted at age 21, he was first assigned as a rifleman with the 398th Infantry Regiment, and later served overseas with the 3rd Army Support troops and the 386th Anti-aircraft Artillery (AAA) Battalion. For his valor and the wounds he received during the war, Durning was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Heart medals.

Durning participated in the Normandy Invasion of France on D-Day, June 6, 1944, and was among the first troops to land at Omaha Beach. In Episode S03E09 of the program Dinner for Five, which also included Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise and Charles Nelson Reilly), Reynolds spoke about Durning’s service career for him, as Durning did not like to talk about it much. Reynolds revealed that Durning was in a group of gliders who overshot their landing zone and that he had to fight alone all the way back to the beach. Reynolds also stated that his own father was there fighting about 15 yards away and that Durning was probably the most decorated veteran (then) still alive from World War II.Some sources state that he was with the 1st Infantry Division at the time, but it is unclear if he served as a rifleman or as a member of one of the division’s artillery battalions.[citation needed]

Durning was wounded by a German “S” Mine on June 15, 1944 at Les Mare des Mares, France. He was transported to the 24th Evacuation Hospital. By June 17 he was back in England at the 217th General Hospital. Although severely wounded by shrapnel in the left and right thighs, the right hand, the frontal region of the head, and the anterior left chest wall, Durning recovered quickly and was determined to be fit for duty on December 6, 1944. He arrived back at the front in time to take part in the Battle of the Bulge, the German counter-offensive through the Ardennes Forest of Belgium and Luxembourg in December 1944.

After being wounded again, this time in the chest, Durning was repatriated to the United States. He remained in Army hospitals to receive treatment for wounds until being discharged with the rank of Private First Class on January 30, 1946.

BYRON YORK, WASHINGTON EXAMINER:

“It shocked me. (Demint leaving Senate) This is what happens when parties lose, when it doesn’t look good. They picked up all of the seats in the Senate in 2010, went backward in 2012, doesn’t look great going forward. And some of the leading lights then start looking at other things. This is certainly the case with DeMint. I asked him after your interview here, I asked him, I said look, would you have done this if Republicans had won control of the Senate? And he said if we controlled the Senate and Romney were president, it would be a different question altogether”

Rush Limbaugh: Republicans Need to Just Walk Away (Video)




Rush Limbaugh: Republicans Need to Just Walk Away


RUSH: I’m having trouble coming up with a term for this. But the conventional wisdom, the groupthink, I mean, folks, I don’t care where you go, and this is not a criticism. I’m actually looking at this in wonderment. I don’t care where you go. It could be a left-wing blog or right-wing blog, a left-wing magazine, a right-wing magazine, a left-wing newspaper, right-wing newspaper, they’re all analyzing these negotiations in the same way: Can Obama prevail over the Republicans? Do the Republicans have any leverage? Are the Republicans going to get entitlement reform? Will there be any serious tax reform? Will there be any serious spending cuts?

All of that is just bunk. It’s not real. That’s not what’s happening. In the leverage that the Republicans have? “That’s right, Mr. Limbaugh, the Republicans have leverage that they don’t even know they have, because Obama doesn’t want that second term recession. They need to call his bluff. They don’t dare cave on this because Obama does not want to be saddled with a second term recession.” I don’t think he cared about the first term recession. And besides, an Obama recession is never gonna be called a recession. The people who write the history are Obama’s friends. Whatever happens economically: 399,000 unemployment claims is good news, and 7.9, 8.2% unemployment, not a problem.

Would somebody explain to me how the people who elected Obama, who support Obama, who love Obama in the media, in the universities, who write the history, are going to write anything critical of the guy no matter what happens? Even if there is a second term recession, you’re gonna need a telescope to find it reported, just like you need a telescope to find Oprah’s network now. It won’t be reported as a recession. So what is the leverage that the Republicans have? To my mind the only leverage they’ve got is to walk away from this, to stop playing, to stop talking, to stop playing this game.

The Republicans lost. Now, they still control the House of Representatives. Boehner still runs the show there. But the only leverage that I can see that they’ve got is to back out of this and make sure that whatever happens, they don’t have any fingerprints on it. I know what you’re saying, and you’d be right. You’re saying, “But, Rush, but, Rush, no matter what the Republicans do, they’re gonna get blamed for it.” Yes, totally true. No matter what happens. If there is a reported recession, in fact, it will be said to be the Republicans in the House fault. No matter what happens, that’s going to be said, and no matter what happens, as we sit here now, the American people, the majority of whom, are gonna believe that.

Report: Jeb Bush Considering 2016 Presidential Bid - NO thank you!!!!!


Report: Jeb Bush Considering 2016 Presidential Bid…

Daily Caller


Friends of Jeb Bush say the former Florida governor is starting to mull a run for president in 2016, according to the The New York Times.

The newspaper says the Republican – whose father and brother were both president – is “weighing financial and family considerations.”

Those considerations include the length of time he’s spent in office, how the recession hurt his wealth and whether Republicans are ready to nominate another Bush.

“It continues to intrigue him, given how much he has to share with the country,” Al Cardenas, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, said of Bush.

Earlier this week, his son, Jeb Bush Jr., seemed to indicate that Bush is open to a campaign by saying in a CNN interview, “I certainly hope so,” when asked if his father will run.

It’s believed that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio – who considers Bush to be a mentor and is thought to have national ambitions– would likely not embark on a campaign for president if Bush decided to run.




Wild Thing's comment.................

Good lord, no thank you. Enough with the Bush family. Enough with the Kennedy family and any other family in politics. I am sick of it.

Republican Rep. Steve King echoed Mitt Romney’s recent remark that President Barack Obama won the race by giving “gifts” to voters


King: presidential election was ‘Santa Claus versus personal responsibility’


At Iowa Republican Gov. Terry Branstad’s birthday fundraiser on Saturday night, Republican Rep. Steve King echoed Mitt Romney’s recent remark that President Barack Obama won the race by giving “gifts” to certain demographics.

“Well, he did,” King told The Daily Caller, when asked for his thoughts on Romney’s comment that Obama had promised gifts to Hispanics, blacks and young voters. “It was Santa Claus versus personal responsibility and fiscal responsibility.”

King said that, in his analysis, too much of the electorate wants to rely on government.


“I think that I’d characterize it a little bit differently. I think that the people who voted for dependency outnumbered the people who voted for personal responsibility,” King said. “Obama promised, and those promises resonated with people who decided that they would rather be dependent upon government, rather than have their freedom and their opportunity to have a real, vigorous economy. So that’s what I think was the dividing philosophy.”

Romney also struggled with turnout among conservative voters, King added, noting that on Election Day the Republicans lost ground with groups like Hispanics and blacks, relative to how the party normally polled.


Wild Thing's comment...................


I am fed up with the idiot Republicans bashing Romney because he spoke the truth. Not only that but the day before Rush Limbaugh had said the same thing when he referred to Obama as Santa Claus to his voters.

Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie and all the others have been mouthing off attacking Romney and they better realize it is not going over well their attacks on Romney with many that supported Mitt and are tired of the Republicans eating their own.

HERO Allen West Defeated by Horrible Democrat ~ Due To Lazy Republicans





Allen West Election Results: Democratic Newcomer Patrick Murphy Prevails

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) isn't coming back to Congress.

After months of battling through one of the nastiest and most expensive races in the country, the Tea Party freshman was knocked out of his seat, barely, by Democratic newcomer Patrick Murphy.

NBC called the race for Murphy early Wednesday morning. By the time all votes were counted, Murphy came out ahead of West by about 2,400 votes.

"I am humbled by the outpouring of support from the voters of the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches,” Murphy said in a statement. “I pledge to be a representative who will work across the aisle, listen to all points of views, and work to end the divisiveness in Congress. Our country faces many challenges, and by working together we will continue to move our country forward.”

It was a tight race all night, which paralleled the razor-thin margins polls showed between the candidates over the past few months. West and Murphy were competing for Florida's 18th Congressional District, an evenly split district that was redrawn in 2010.

Romney Rally in Morrisville, Pennsylvania Last Night 30K to 35K with Overflow of Supporters







Here is complete video of Gov. Mitt Romney’s massive rally today in Morrisville, Pennsylvania. The rally in Bucks County drew a huge crowd of more than 30,000 plus overflow people, with the crowd at times chanting when Romney referenced Barack Obama, “Send him home! Send him home!”

Great speech! Awesome crowd of supporters and the entire rally was fantastic.

It is so great to hear speeches from Mitt, there is no anger like when we hear Obama speak, no hate the rich, hate business, hate coal and oil etc from Mitt. This is the way an America President should be speaking about our country and the American dream and about our troops.

Charles Krauthammer : "it’s unequivocal Mitt Romney won.”




Charles Krauthammer reacted to the third presidential debate at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. He said, “I think it’s unequivocal Mitt Romney won.”

Krauthammer told Megyn Kelly on Fox News that Romney won both tactically and strategically. He assessed that Romney had to show the American people that he was someone they can trust as commander in chief.

During the debate, he said, “Romney went large. Obama went very, very small – shockingly small. Romney made a strategic decision not to go after the president on Libya or Syria or other areas where Obama could accuse him of being a Bush-like war monger.”

Romney Great Debate! Fox News' Chris Wallace: You Would Have Thought Romney Was The President





Chris Wallace offered some instant analysis tonight after the third and final presidential debate at Lynn University.

Wallace said that if he’d been on a desert island for the last four years and parachuted in during the middle of the debate, he would have thought Mitt Romney was president and trying to hold on to the title, while President Obama was the challenger.

Wallace also called the president “slashing,” “personal,” and “cutting,” but said he found Romney to be focused on “the big picture” and that he “seemed to have much more of an agenda for the future.”




.



Chris Wallace provided an instant fact check of the claims made by both President Obama and Mitt Romney.

Wallace looked at several contentious moments throughout the debate, including the exchange in which Romney and Obama

went back and forth about whether the president wanted a Status of Forces Agreement following the Iraq War. Of this exchange, Wallace said, “It’s clear Romney was right, Obama was wrong.”

He also weighed in on Obama’s claims about the military. During a heated moment, the president said, “You mentioned the Navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, Governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets, because the nature of our military’s changed.”

Wallace pointed out that during the debate, a Marine tweeted Fox News Channel saying that the Marines still use bayonets.

Actor Scott Baio Speaks Out for Mitt Romney and Fixing America (Video)






he actor, now starring in Nick at Nite’s new comedy, “See Dad Run,” stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Friday where he explained why he supports the Republican Presidential nominee.

“I believe in Governor Romney for a lot of different reasons. I’ve met him many times and he’s a straight up guy, he’s a good guy, great family man [and] his kids are fantastic,” Scott told Kit Hoover and Billy Bush. “I think we need to be fixed in this country.”

Scott said being a Republican in typically-left-leaning Hollywood can be intimidating and he feels for actress Stacey Dash, who recently faced a barrage of mean-spirited comments after revealing she’s voting for Romney.

“I don’t think anybody should bash anybody for what they believe. I have my beliefs, you have yours,” he said. “Just leave her alone, let her say what she wants to say. Freedom of speech.”

Adding, “I don’t know why they’re beating [Stacey] up the way they are – I really don’t.”

Scott, a self-proclaimed “big Reagan guy,” frequently engages in political discussions with Democrats on Twitter and said he doesn’t understand why some people become so heated over a difference of opinion.

“I have conversations with people who don’t see eye-to-eye with me all the time. I don’t get in wars with them – I just say, ‘Hey, it’s what you believe. I still like you,’” he said. “I’ve got no problem with anybody.”

The former “Charles in Charge” star has been actively involved in the Romney campaign and plans to continue to help out however he can.



Wild Thing's comment......

Good for Scott!

Wife Of Army Sniper Killed In Afghanistan Overjoyed To Hear Romney Talk About Her Husband, “One Of The Last Things He Said To Me Was ‘I Need A New President’”





Jane Horton began crying on the other end of the phone when she learned that Mitt Romney had been using the story of her husband, Chris Horton, who was killed in Afghanistan, as a part of his stump speech.

“Wow,” the 26-year-old said. “I had no idea.

“To be honest, I’ve been through a lot and I’m not a super emotional person but it brings me to tears,” Horton said in an interview with ABC News, after being informed of her husband’s newfound spot on the national stage. “Not that he’s telling my story, but that he’s telling my husband’s story, it means the world to me.

“One of the last things my husband said to me before he was killed, when I would ask him, ‘Chris, what do you need over there? What can I send you?’ he said, ‘I need a new president,’” Horton recalled.


Chris Horton, who was acting as a combat sniper in the Oklahoma National Guard, was killed when he and several others were ambushed in Paktya, Afghanistan, in September 2011. When he was buried, protestors from the Westboro Baptist Church turned up at his funeral, and as Romney now tells it to crowds of thousands, his wife wasn’t angry.

“She was asked what do you think of that and this is the quote she said this, ‘Chris died for them to be able to protest,’” Romney said at a rally last weekend in St. Petersburg, Fla. “This is quite a nation we live in. There are some extraordinary people.”

God bless this wife of a Hero. She is a Hero too for taking a stand for her husband.

R.I.P. Chris Horton.

Actress Stacey Dash Endorses Mitt Romney



Stacey Dash on Romney: ‘I Chose Him Not By the Color of His Skin But the Content of His Character’

STACEY DASH: I just feel that as a country, this is my choice. This is the man I want to lead my country. It is my right as an American cit
izen. It’s my Constitutional right to have my choice of who I want to vote for for President. And I chose him not by the color of his skin but the content of his character.

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: Have you heard from Mitt Romney at all?

DASH: Yes, well not Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan.

MORGAN: Paul Ryan rang you today?

DASH: Yes, he did.

MORGAN: What did he say?

DASH: He said, “Thank you so much for your support,” and that I was brave, and they support me, and I thought that was so generous and kind. You know? Lovely. Really

MORGAN: Have any of the Obama campaign (unintelligible)?

DASH: No, they haven’t.

MORGAN: What does it say to you about the state of the political discourse and the debate in America that one innocuous tweet from you, purely because you’re an actress and the color of your skin, sparked this kind of mayhem?

DASH: I think it tells me that our, the state of our country is that we are not united. You know? We need to be united, and we all need to understand that we’re all capable of achieving the American dream. And, but that has to be something that is self-realized. And also to demonize someone for achieving the American dream is unfair.



Wild Thing's comment..........

I am proud of Stacey, I tweeted to her and thanked her and told her she was very brave. To hang in there that she had a lot of support. She was getting a ton of attacks because she spoke out, which happens a lot to conservatives in Hollywood.

Steve Wynn On Obama: "I'll Be Damned If I Want To Have Him Lecture Me



http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2012/10/09/steve_wynn_on_obama_ill_be_damned_if_ill_have_him_lecture_me.html


Steve Wynn On Obama: "I'll Be Damned If I Want To Have Him Lecture Me

On the Tuesday broadcast of the nightly Nevada political program "Ralston Reports," Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts sat down with host Jon Ralston to discuss the presidential election.

Wynn, an outspoken critic of President Obama, didn't hold back in his latest criticism of the incumbent president seeking a second term.

"I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bulls-eye painted on our back," Wynn said about Obama to Ralston. An excerpt of the interview is below.

WYNN: I've created about 250,000 direct and indirect jobs according to the state of Nevada's measurement. If the number is 250,000, that's exactly 250,000 more than this president, who I'll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I'm a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don't like having a bulls-eye painted on our back.

The president is trying to put himself between me and my employees. By class warfare, by deprecating and calling a group that makes money 'billionaires and millionaires who don't pay their share.' I gave 120% of my salary and bonus away last year to charities, as I do most years. I can't stand the idea of being demagogued, that is put down by a president who has never created any jobs and who doesn't even understand how the economy works.

Wynn on a scrapped business plan: "I'm afraid of the president. I have no idea what goofy idea, what crazy, anti-business program this administration will come up. I have no idea. And I have to tell you Jon that every business guy I know in the country is frightened of Barack Obama and the way he thinks."





Wild Thing's comment...........

Good for Steve Wynn. He has spoken out before about Obama but I think this time it was even stronger.

Mitt Romney Tells about Meeting one of the Navy SEALs Who Died in the Terrorist Attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya – Video







Mitt Romney Tells about Meeting one of the Navy SEALs Who Died in the Terrorist Attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya

Here is video of Gov. Mitt Romney today delivering a moving tribute to fallen Navy SEAL Glen Doherty, who was killed in the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Romney told of how he happened to meet Doherty by chance a couple of years ago at a Christmas Party they actually went to by accident, believing it to be a party they had gotten a flyer about in their neighborhood. Romney spoke with emotion about how impressed he was by this young man, and about finding out Doherty had died in the attack. Romney said Doherty had rushed to the Consulate from a safe place across town to render aid when they heard the attack was underway. He praised Doherty as an example of the American Spirit.

Michael Reagan: Romney Had the Best Debate Since Lincoln





Michael Reagan: Romney Had the Best Debate Since Lincoln

Michael Reagan, the son of former President Ronald Reagan, reacted to the first presidential debate. Many in the media agreed that Mitt Romney won the debate against President Obama, and even compared the GOP candidate to President Reagan. But his son disagrees, saying that this was the best debate performance since Abraham Lincoln.

He told Uma Pemmaraju that when it comes to his father, people remember a few sharp lines when he debated President Jimmy Carter or Walter Mondale. But, he says, “The debate that Mitt Romney put on the other night was not a Ronald Reagan debate, it was a Mitt Romney debate. […] From the beginning to the end — there was great moments all the way through.”

Reagan worries that by looking for another President Reagan, a new leader may be overlooked. He said, “We weren’t looking for Abraham Lincoln when we found Ronald Reagan, we were looking for a leader and I think the other night we found one.”


Wild Thing's comment...............

It was a great night and many that were still not thrilled with Romney have become supporters now. I hope it shows the talking heads on TV, the ones that say they are Republican that they need to stop with the " Romney needs to this and that." It only hurts our chances of getting Obama out of office and we only get this one chance.

Did You Know Mitt Romney Once Worked as a Garbage Man?




Mitt Romney Worked As a Garbage Man....

Yesterday, AFSCME ( Obama people) put out a rather silly ad featuring Mitt Romney’s former garbage collector in La Jolla, California. The ad begins:


.


My name is Richard Hayes, and I pick up Mitt Romney’s trash.

"My name is Richard Hayes, and I pick up Mitt Romney's trash. We're kind of like the invisible people. He doesn't realize that the service we provide -- if it wasn't for us, it would be a big health issue, us not picking up trash.
Residents do come out and shake our hands. Sometimes they give us hugs and thank us for the job we're doing, hand us water and Gatorades. Tell us we're doing a good job and keep up the good work. Picking up 15, 16 tons by hand, that takes a toll on your body. When I'm 55, 60 years old, I know my body's gonna be break down [sic]. Mitt Romney doesn't care about that."


Get the sledgehammer message? Mitt Romney doesn’t understand! Romney could have no idea about quotidien things such as trash collection because his wealth and detachment prevent him from having to know what life is like for blue-collar workers such as Mr. Hayes.

There’s just one problem with this, and it lies on page 251 of Mitt Romney’s book, "No Apology":

During my campaign for governor, I decided to spend a day every few weeks doing the jobs of other people in Massachusetts. Among other jobs, I cooked sausages at Fenway Park, worked on asphalt paving crew, stacked bales of hay on a farm, volunteered in an emergency room, served food at a nursing home, and worked as a child-care assistant. I’m often asked which was the hardest job – it’s child care, by a mile.

One day I gathered trash as a garbage collector. I stood on that little platform at the back of the truck, holding on as the driver navigated his way through the narrow streets of Boston. As we pulled up to traffic lights, I noticed that the shoppers and businesspeople who were standing only a few feet from me didn’t even see me. It was as if I was invisible. Perhaps it was because a lot of us don’t think garbage men are worthy of notice; I disagree – anyone who works that hard deserves our respect. – I wasn’t a particularly good garbage collector: at one point, after filling the trough at the back of the truck, I pulled the wrong hydraulic lever. Instead of pushing the load into the truck, I dumped it onto the street. Maybe the suits didn’t notice me, but the guys at the construction site sure did: “Nice job, Mitt,” they called. “Why don’t you find an easier job?” And then they good-naturedly came down and helped me pick up my mess.




Wild Thing's comment........

I love that Romney had such a GREAT way of combating this idiot. I am sick of the BS from the kool-aid Obama people. They hate the rich, hate those that have been a success in their lives and we hear this hate from Obama and all of his lefties day in and day out.

The American Dream is a real thing and Obama does all he can to destroy it.

Former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway Endorses Mitt Romney and Introduces Mitt at Rally in Denver last night




Endorsement from John Elway...as Former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway takes the stage to introduce Governor Mitt Romney at a campaign rally in Denver, Colorado October 1, 2012

Awesome crowd of supporters during a Romney campaign rally at the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum on October 1, 2012 in Denver, Colorado.


John Elway: “Governor Romney is a proven leader with the experience and background to turn around our struggling economy,” said John Elway. “In these tough economic times, we need a president who understands how to get America working again – by standing on the side of taxpayers and small-business owners who do the real job creating. I am endorsing Governor Romney and Congressman R
yan for President and Vice President because I know having the courage to make decisions and tackle challenges is what leads to results and real change. America needs a comeback team – Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are that team.”

Mitt Romney responds:
“Leaders come in many forms, and John Elway has always exemplified leadership, first as a quarterback for the Super Bowl champion Broncos, and now as an executive vice president for the team,” said Mitt Romney. “He’s had to overcome challenges during his career, and he knows what it takes to turn things around when things get tough. I’m proud to have him on my team as we campaign to lead the comeback this nation desperately needs.”

Wild Thing's comment............

The rally was packed and overflowing, most of the rallies have been like this for Mitt this last couple of months. I am thrilled that John Elway endorsed Mitt this is great news. Meanwhile Obama has the endorsement of Hugo Chavez.

We have tumult in Pakistan, and of course Iran is that much closer to having the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. These are not bumps in the road, these are human lives. These are developments we do not want to see. This is time for a president who will shape events in the Middle East, not just be merciful or be at the mercy of events in the Middle East. I will get America on track to have the kind of leadership we need so we can shape the future of this part of the world and keep America strong."...Mitt Romney at rally in Pueblo, Colorado.

Romney had a great interview. They aired both Romney and Obama interviews last night on "60 Minutes". The comparison was of course vast and if anyone that watched it cannot tell the difference they need their head examined. hahhaha But I am guessing the Obama people were mostly not watching since the Emmy's were also on TV and football as well.

The bodies of Amb. Chris Stevens, diplomat Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods arrived at Andrews Air Force Base earlier today.

“We are a patriotic nation. We love this country. We love the men and women who serve this country,” said Romney.

Romney calls Obama administration's early response to attacks a disgrace ~ Thank you!!!!





Mitt Romney Hammers Initial Obama Administration Response to Attack on U.S. Embassy in Egypt


FOX News

Gov. Mitt Romney issued a statement Tuesday night hammering the Obama Administration’s response to attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Egypt yesterday, in which the United States Flag was torn to shreds and a black Islamic Flag was raised. The initial response on the U.S. Embassy website in Cairo was to apologize for anyone who hurt the feelings of Muslims. No condemnation of the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was mentioned initially. Romney’s statement was issued before it was known that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya had been killed in another attack in Libya:

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney criticized the Obama administration in the wake of attacks on U.S. diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya on Tuesday, branding as "disgraceful" an early response to the assault in Cairo as sympathizing with the attackers.

The assaults were linked to a video being promoted by an extreme anti-Muslim Egyptian Christian in the U.S. Protesters say the video posted on the Internet, a 14-minute trailer for a movie, attacks Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

Protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to replace the American flag with an Islamic banner. In the Libyan city of Benghazi, an American was shot to death as protesters burned and looted the U.S. consulate.

The U.S. Embassy in Cairo issued a statement saying, in part, that it condemns "the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims -- as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions." The statement, an apparent reference to the video, was posted hours before the American's death in Libya was reported.

In a statement Tuesday night, Romney said he was outraged by the attacks and the death of the American consulate worker. He added: "It's disgraceful that the Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, in a statement released about the same time as Romney's, condemned the attack in Libya "in the strongest terms."

"Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet," Clinton said. "The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind."

In response to Romney, White House spokesman Ben LaBolt said in an email early Wednesday: "We are shocked that, at a time when the United States of America is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya, Gov. Romney would choose to launch a political attack."




.



Wild Thing's comment........

I say thank God for Romney's response the the hell with the WH, they already messed up. At least Romney took a stand and not a stand apologizing to the freaking Muslims. So go to Hell Obama and your entire administration.

What Mitt Romney Left Behind: The People Who Bought His House Tell Their Story ~ A Must Read



What Mitt Romney Left Behind: The People Who Bought His House Tell Their Story

Source

Buying a house is usually an impersonal transaction. The buyer sees a scrubbed version of the home, artfully “staged,” possibly with a fresh coat of paint and flowers on the table. Once a purchase price has been negotiated, the buyer and the seller sign legal papers in triplicate, and the new owner gets a set of keys and – if lucky – an extra garage door opener. So, when Hal and Corinne Prewitt decided to buy Mitt and Ann Romney’s Park City, Utah home in spring of 2009, they figured they were in for another paperwork hassle. What they got, however, was a great house, interesting interactions with the man who’d just lost a bid to be the previous election’s GOP nominee, and some insight into the character of the possible next President. In fact, their interaction with Romney was so different than what the Prewitts expected, Hal decided to write down his experience in a Google document which has since been downloaded over 100,000 times.

First of all, the Prewitts were impressed – and a little shocked — when Mitt Romney met them at the property on moving day. There were no brokers or anyone there at the house – just the former governor walking around the house to make sure the new owners were comfortable and familiar with their purchase. “He spent as much time as we needed showing us around, answering our questions and explaining how to use and service the home’s equipment,” Hal wrote. “And when he was done, he gave us his direct contact information should we have problems.

Secondly, the Prewitts were fascinated by the way Gov. Romney – worth, by some calculations, hundreds of millions of dollars – decided to move his things. Some people hire professional movers to pack their things, others hire them to transport them, and others prefer a do-it-yourself approach. Gov. Romney fit into the last category. He went to Home Depot, bought wood, and built the necessary containers to transport his possession from the house. Then, he asked a friend and some family to help him pack his family photos, mementos, and grandchildren’s toys. Then, they carried his things into a U-Haul, which he drove to his new home in California.

The home, according to the Prewitts, was built with a focus on their family, even though it had “no swimming pool, tennis court or movie theater. There are no maid, butler or nanny quarters. Clearly Ann and Mitt raised their kids. No gold faucets, no fancy silverware. The kitchen was simple and typical of an average three bedroom home, very much like those in which we were raised.” Because the Prewitts bought much of the home’s contents, they also got to see the way the family really lived in their home: the linens didn’t have the highest thread count, the master bedroom pillows had tags from a discount store, and almost everything — the art, furniture and drapes — were American made.

Plus, there were lots of toys for the grandchildren. Also, in the Romney’s former mud room, Hal and Corinne found the former governor’s ski gloves with holes in the fingers. Apparently, one of Mitt’s sons had suggested he replace the gloves, but Gov. Romney, whom his sons have described as “frugal” and even “cheap,” thought he could salvage them. When Hal and Corinne found the gloves, they’d been altered.

“Mitt had gone to the garage tool box and wrapped them with duct tape. Thrifty? Yes, and the repair provided an immediate practical solution rather than traveling to the store to buy a new pair,” Hal wrote. “His indifference to appearance demonstrated his confidence, true character and priorities. Good qualities, but easily misunderstood because they are quite different from those displayed by many famous people and certainly politicians, who highly protect and prize their appearance.”

In the Romney’s master bedroom, was a prominent painting of Jesus Christ. “Most Americans know little about Mormonism and we didn’t either,” Hal wrote. “But Mitt Romney clearly had a home of faith and family just like the rest of us.”

“One of the most interesting questions many have asked is, ‘as president will he impose his beliefs on others?’” Hal wrote. “Many claim that a President Romney would take away rights and impose his beliefs on all Americans.” However, possibly the most surprising discovery was a small stash of alcohol in the house, which – the Prewitts were told – was for guests only. Mormonism prohibits drinking alcohol, of course, and the Romneys are teetotalers. However, they kept a few drinks on hand to be good hosts and make sure their guests felt comfortable. Hal believes this stash shows the Romneys wouldn’t impose their beliefs on others from the White House, because they didn’t even impose their beliefs on others in their own house.

The Prewitts didn’t support Romney in the 2008 election. Neither Republicans nor Democrats, they knew very little about Romney, Utah, or his former Presidential bid when they looked for a winter home. However, they felt they needed to speak out, because the caricature of Romney on television is such a far cry from the real man who showed him around the house and packed his own boxes that day.

“Mitt Romney… is not aloof or out of touch. He is a man of faith, family and American values. A guy who is well-grounded. It is not beneath him to roll up his shirt-sleeves and get the job done,” Hal wrote. “The fact that he has allowed this to be kept so very private is a true testament to his character and shows how different he is from many other politicians.”

Charles Krauthammer Weighs In on Chris Christie and Ann Romney Speeches




Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer gave Ann Romney’s speech at the RNC positive reviews and pointed out an implicit contrast to President Obama. He said, “I think the second part of it where she spoke in praise of her husband was utterly heartfelt and extremely effective.”

Krauthammer referred Mrs. Romney’s line when she said, “Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point. And we’re no different than the millions of Americans who quietly help their neighbors, their churches and their communities. They don’t do it so that others will think more of them. They do it because there is no greater joy.”

He assessed, “She’s basically saying there are two kinds of being genuine. There’s the political genuine where you appear to be caring and all that when you give your speeches and when you do handouts from the public treasury […] And then there’s real generosity that I’ve seen, she says, in my life. And that’s what he’s got and the beauty of it is he won’t talk about it because he has a sense that you don’t exploit it.”

Mitt Romney Unveils Plan to make the United States Energy Independent - Video







Mitt Romney Unveils Plan to make the United States Energy Independent by 2020

1. Make the process to get permits to drill on Federal lands easier by giving the states the power to make those decisions.

2. Open up offshore drilling

3. Establish an Energy Partnership with Canada and Mexico – including building the Keystone Pipeline.

4. Get an accurate inventory of just how much energy resources we have in America.

5. Stop using regulations to prevent the production of energy in America.


.

Romney Would Give Reins to States on Drilling on Federal Lands

New York Times


By proposing to end a century of federal control over oil and gas drilling and coal mining on government lands, Mitt Romney is making a bid for anti-Washington voters in key Western states while dangling the promise of a big reward to major campaign supporters from the energy industry.

Mr. Romney's plan, which would turn over decision-making on drilling and mining to the states, echoes the "Drill, baby, drill" strategy that another Republican presidential candidate, John McCain, used to great effect in the 2008 campaign.

The federal government owns vast portions of states like New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and Alaska. Under President Obama, officials in Washington have played a bigger role in drilling and mining decisions on federal lands in the states, and such involvement rankles many residents and energy executives, who prefer the usually lighter touch of local officials.

With gasoline prices again approaching $4 a gallon, Mr. Romney, the presumptive Republican nominee, is also trying to merge energy and economic policy in a way that will make voters see increased energy production as a pocketbook issue. He said that his overall energy plan, which includes speedy approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada and new drilling off the coast of Virginia and the Carolinas, would help the country achieve energy independence and create three million drilling and manufacturing jobs.

"I'm going to change the regulatory and permitting process," Mr. Romney said Thursday at a rally in Hobbs, N.M., in the giant Permian Basin oil fields, where companies are eager to begin drilling on millions of acres of federal lands. "Sometimes I have the impression that the whole regulatory attitude of the administration is trying to stop oil and gas and coal - that they don't want those sources, that instead they want to get those things so expensive and so rare that wind and solar become highly cost-effective and efficient."

Giving states control over the energy resources on millions of acres of federal lands would be a radical shift from decades of policies under both Democratic and Republican presidents, dating all the way to Theodore Roosevelt, who first set aside vast tracts of territory to preserve wildlife. Since then, the federal government has tried to balance exploitation of mineral resources with other uses like recreation and environmental protection.

"This step would be a change in national policy direction going back at least 50 years, giving control over national assets to localities," said Michael E. Webber, associate director of the Center for International Energy and Environmental Policy at the University of Texas at Austin. "Local decision makers could inhibit production that could be against the national interest or could encourage production that could pollute waters or air in another state."

Mr. Romney said that states like North Dakota and Colorado grant drilling permits on state-owned lands in days or weeks, compared with the nearly a year that it takes the federal government to grant approval. "They found a way to do a job in a more efficient way," he said. "On federal lands, the permitting process to actually drill and get oil or gas is extraordinarily slow."

The Romney campaign acknowledged that such a significant policy change would require the approval of Congress. Getting such legislation passed, even if Republicans controlled the House and the Senate, would be very difficult, given certain opposition by Democrats and perhaps even some Republicans.

But even if it never passes, the proposal is liable to generate enthusiasm among voters who favor smaller government, especially in Western swing states like Nevada, which is about 80 percent federal land.

"We love it," said Ally Isom, a deputy chief of staff to Gov. Gary R. Herbert of Utah, a Republican. "We understand better than Washington how to better manage our lands. We actually live here."

An individual close to the Romney campaign said that Mr. Romney's staff drafted the proposal in consultation with industry executives, including Harold Hamm, an Oklahoma billionaire who is the chairman of the campaign's energy advisory committee and chief executive of Continental Resources, an oil and gas driller.

Just this week, the oil and gas industry gave nearly $10 million toward the Romney election effort in two fund-raisers.

The Romney aide, who said she was not authorized to speak on the record about the plan, said that any consultation with industry officials was simply to tap their expertise and did not mean the proposal was being shaped to serve their interests.

Mr. Romney's proposal drew immediate praise from the industry, which has complained that gas production on public lands has slowed under President Obama, even while it has surged on private lands.

"Empowering states, rather than imposing a one-size-fits-all federal government approach, is the right way to increase American energy," said Kathleen Sgamma, a vice president at Western Energy Alliance, a group of oil and gas producers.

But environmentalists and former Interior Department officials called the proposal an irresponsible break from traditional federal protection of wildlife.

"It is a preposterously bad idea - we are talking about federal trust lands that belong to the whole nation," said Bobby McEnaney, a senior aide at the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group.

Federico Peña, secretary of energy in the Clinton administration and now a co-chairman of Mr. Obama's re-election campaign, said Mr. Romney's plan would cause more problems for the oil and gas industry. "I cannot imagine a world in where there are 50 different kinds of rules and regulations for industry," Mr. Peña said. "To see Balkanization of rules and regulation I think would drive the industry crazy."

The federal government owns about 28 percent of the 2.27 billion acres of land in the United States. But as of March 2012, only about 37 million acres were under lease for oil and gas operations, of which about 16.3 million acres have active oil and gas production or exploration, according to the Interior Department.

Under Mr. Romney's proposal, the federal government would still be able to set national standards for air and water pollution, which equally apply to drilling on federal and private lands, an aide said. But states would be authorized to conduct their own environmental reviews and issue drilling permits as quickly as they would like, as long as the drilling was not in protected wildlife areas or national parks.

Elected officials in states like Utah have called for federal officials to transfer or sell federal lands to the states, echoing the Sagebrush Rebellion of the 1970s, when politicians and landowners in the West advocated a similar move.

The George W. Bush administration allowed individual drilling permits to be issued without a detailed environmental review, resulting in a surge of oil and gas production.

But never before has the federal government offered simply to cede control over how federal land is developed to state officials, said John Leshy, a professor at the University of California Hastings College of the Law and an Interior Department lawyer in the Clinton administration.

"It is pretty revolutionary to say we are going to keep title but turn it over to the states," he said. "It is a Sagebrush Rebellion with a twist."

400 Independent Economists, 5 Nobel Laureates Support Romney’s Plan




400 Independent Economists, 5 Nobel Laureates Support Romney’s Plan


FOX News

Over 400 independent economists signed a statement at the website Economists for Romney in support of what they call the Republican presidential candidate's "bold economic plan for America."

Five Nobel laureates (Gary Becker, Robert Lucas, Robert Mundell, Edward Prescott, and Myron Scholes) signed the statement which, in part, reads, “We enthusiastically endorse Governor Mitt Romney’s economic plan to create jobs and restore economic growth while returning America to its tradition of economic freedom.”

The economists also denounced Obama's economic ideas, claiming they led to an "an anemic economic recovery and high unemployment." They further assert, "his future plans are to double down on the failed policies, which will only prolong slow growth and high unemployment."

The economists write that Romney's plan is based on sound principles: "more contained and less intrusive federal government, a greater reliance on the private sector, a broad expansion of opportunity without government favors for special interests, and respect for the rule of law including the decision-making authority of states and localities."


These economists note that Romney would:

Reduce marginal tax rates on business and wage incomes and broaden the tax base to increase investment, jobs, and living standards.

End the exploding federal debt by controlling the growth of spending so federal spending does not exceed 20 percent of the economy.

Restructure regulation to end “too big to fail,” improve credit availability to entrepreneurs and small businesses, and increase regulatory accountability, and ensure that all regulations pass rigorous benefit-cost tests.

Improve our Social Security and Medicare programs by reducing their growth to sustainable levels, ensuring their viability over the long term, and protecting those in or near retirement.

Reform our healthcare system to harness market forces and thereby reduce costs and increase quality, empowering patients and doctors, rather than the federal bureaucracy.

Promote energy policies that increase domestic production, enlarge the use of all western hemisphere resources, encourage the use of new technologies, end wasteful subsidies, and rely more on market forces and less on government planners.

In "stark contrast," Obama, according to the economists, "has failed to advance policies that promote economic and job growth, focusing instead on increasing the size and scope of the federal government, which increases the debt, requires large tax increases, and burdens business with many new financial and health care regulations."

The economists note that Obama has:

Relied on short-term “stimulus” programs, which provided little sustainable lift to the economy, and enacted and proposed significant tax increases for all Americans.

Offered no plan to reduce federal spending and stop the growth of the debt-to-GDP ratio.

Failed to propose Social Security reform and offered a Medicare proposal that relies on a panel of bureaucrats to set prices, quantities, and qualities of healthcare services.

Favored a large expansion of economic regulation across many sectors, with little regard for proper cost-benefit analysis and with a disturbing degree of favoritism toward special interests.

Enacted health care legislation that centralizes health care decisions and increases the power of the federal bureaucracy to impose one-size-fits-all solutions on patients and doctors, and creates greater incentives for waste.

Favored expansion of one-size-fits-all federal rulemaking, with an erosion of the ability of state and local governments to make decisions appropriate for their particular circumstances.

"In sum, Governor Romney’s economic plan is far superior for creating economic growth and jobs than the actions and interventions President Obama has taken or plans to take in the future," the economists write. "This November, voters will make a fundamental choice between differing visions of America’s economic future."


.


Wild Thing's comment..........

In 2008 Americans voted for an image. They voted for an empty slogan. They voted for a skin color. They even voted against a man (G.W. Bush) who wasn't running for office.
This year they need to vote for prosperity. They need to vote for ideas that work. They need to vote to protect their children's future. They need to vote to end runaway taxation, regulation and spending. The need to vote for freedom.

RUSH:

I actually wasn’t surprised by this. Folks, I gotta tell you something. I’ve been trying to think, honestly, objectively think the whole weekend. And I’m gonna ask you. Maybe I’m forgetting something. I don’t recall a vice presidential pick which has so energized the party. I don’t remember a vice presidential pick that has so energized a campaign as this choice of Paul Ryan.

These crowds, these standing-room-only crowds, the enthusiasm at these rallies, something about this, just a gut feeling I have. I don’t want to attach too much to it because it was gonna happen anyway, a vice presidential pick, but I’ve been thinking about this all weekend long. I go back and forth, the positives, the negatives, the strict political science analysis of it. Then you compare that with just the gut feel, and you come away with… at least I have come away with the following conclusion. This is it. This election, we’ve said it before and others have said it, but this is ball game.

Charles Krauthammer on the Romney/Ryan Team





Krauthammer: ‘Change Is Now On The Side Of The Republicans’

Saturday morning, political analyst Charles Krauthammer offered insight on Mitt Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate. He said two major things have changed with the addition of Ryan to the political campaign picture.

First is Ryan’s youth. But second, is the shifting grounds and changing of the debate dynamic brought forth by Ryan’s presence.

Krauthammer cited Ryan’s invocation of faith in his remarks on the USS Wisconsin Saturday when he said ‘our rights are from nature and God.’ By doing this, Krauthammer said a Romney / Ryan ticket is running on what is essentially the argument: “no” to the status quo.

After running in 2008 on a platform of ‘hope and change,’ Krauthammer says Obama’s failure to deliver on campaign promises leaves an opening for Romney and Ryan. “You had your shot at charisma and hope and change,” Krauthammer said. “It’s not hope and change [...] it’s a rather dismal, declining America.”

“Change is now on the side of the Republicans.”

Actor Clint Eastwood Endorses Mitt Romney for President



Actor Clint Eastwood Endorses Mitt Romney for President: “We’ve Got to Just Spread the Word and Get the Whole Country Behind This”

Romney: “Can I get Clint Eastwood to come up here and say hi to everybody?”

Eastwood walked up and said something inaudible and Romney laughed.

Eastwood: “This is very nice to be here today, tonight, today. Let’s clear the smoke.

“I was doing a picture in early 2000s called Mystic River in his home state. At that time Gov. Romney was running for governor. I said, God this guy is too handsome to be governor but he does look like he could be president. As the years have gone by I’m beginning to think even more so that.”

“He’s going to restore a decent tax system that we need badly so that there is a fairness and people are not pitted against one another of whose paying taxes and who isn’t.”

“Also we don’t want anybody taking away the Olympic medals, tax wise, from the Olympic athletes. The government is talking about getting a couple of nickles.”

“It’s now more important than ever that we need Gov. Romney and I’m going to be voting for him as I know most of you will be … we’ve got to just spread the word and get the whole country behind this…”

Romney:... then took back the microphone: “He just made my day. What a guy.”

Mitt Romney and Military Groups Slam Obama Attempt to Block Giving U.S. Military Special Voting Privileges in Ohio – Video



Mitt Romney, Military Groups Slam Obama Attempt to Block Giving U.S. Military Special Voting Privileges in Ohio

Mitt Romney responds to news President Barack Obama is attempting to block an Ohio law that gives members of the U.S. Military an extra three days for early-voting. The law attempts to assist members of the military overseas who often have difficulty in getting their absentee votes in on time.


he National Guard Association of the United States and more than a dozen other fraternal military groups asked a U.S. judge for permission to intervene in and oppose a lawsuit filed by President Barack Obama’s campaign challenging the fairness of Ohio’s early voting rules.

The campaign sued Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Secretary of State Jon Husted on July 17, claiming the state’s two-tiered early voting process violates the U.S. Constitution’s guarantees of equal protection under the law.

State law allows families of armed forces members and civilians overseas to vote through the Monday before an election while early voting for all other Ohioans ends the preceding Friday. The campaign seeks a court order invalidating the statutes.

“Members of the U.S. Armed Forces risk their lives to keep this nation safe and defend the fundamental constitutional right to vote,” the military groups said.

With No Proof Harry Reid A Known LIAR..... Attacks Mitt Romney



Vile POS Harry Reid Accuses Romney Of Not Paying Taxes For 10 Years, This Time On Senate Floor...


REID: I would suggest that when we’re talking about trust, that we look no further than the person my friend the Speaker of the House wants to be president. He’s refused to release his tax returns, as we know. If a person coming before this body wanted to be a cabinet officer, he couldn’t be if he did the same refusal Mitt Romney does about tax returns. So the word’s out that he hasn’t paid any taxes for ten years. Let him prove that he has paid taxes, because he hasn’t. We already know from one partial tax return that he gave us, he has money hidden in Bermuda, the Cayman Islands, and a Swiss bank account. Not making that up, that’s in the partial year that he gave us. Mitt Romney makes more money in a single day than the average middle-class family makes in two years–or more.


.



Mitt Romney To Harry Reid On Tax Dodge: 'Put Up Or Shut Up'

“It’s time for Harry Reid to put up or shut up. Harry’s going to have to disclose who it is he spoke with because of course that’s totally and completely wrong. It’s untrue, dishonest and inaccurate. It’s wrong. So I’m looking forward to have Harry reveal his sources and we’ll probably find out it’s the White House. Look, the Obama campaign is going to do everything in its power to try and talk about anything besides the president’s record, home prices, median American incomes, gasoline prices, 23 million people underemployed or unemployed. They don’t want to talk about that.”




.





Limbaugh: Despicable Harry Reid Continues To Smear Mitt Romney

RUSH: Does he have no shame? We’re talking about a despicable human being here. Does Harry Reid have any shame? I think he drew the short straw on this. They probably assigned this to somebody, and Harry got the short straw. They sat around, “Somebody’s gonna take this public. Romney hasn’t paid his taxes. Harry, it’s your turn.” “Aw, I don’t — I don’t –” “Harry, it’s your turn, you gotta do it. Take one for the team.” And it’s entirely possible that Harry didn’t have to have this assigned, that he was just willing to do it on his own. It’s very typical. But that’s what this is about.

Olympic Swimmer Gets To Meet Mitt and Ann Romney , She has a great story



Mitt Romney with US swimmer Breeja Larson as they attend the men's 400m individual medley heats swimming event at the London 2012 Olympic Games on July 28, 2012 in London.


.


Swimmer Breeja Larson of the United States, right, is embraced by U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney at the Aquatics Centre in the Olympic Park during the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Saturday, July 28, 2012.



.


About Breeja.....She’s a 20-year-old who didn’t start year-round club swimming until her senior year of high school.

She’s a kid who was absolutely terrified to attend her first college practice at Texas A&M.

She had a scare with thyroid cancer last summer, only to find out the tumors were benign and everything was all good.

And now she’s an Olympian.

“An hour before this race adrenaline kept rushing through and I was getting really tense about it,” Larson said. “I was just like, ‘stay calm, don't shake it out, wait for the race.’ I tried to make my first 50 a little faster so coming home I might have a chance.’”

Larson trailed Soni after the first 50 before pushing ahead in the second half of the race to beat her at the wall, 1:05.92 to 1:05.99. She signed a London phone booth sitting in a corner of the deck, which every Olympic qualifier has done this week.

Dealing with what could have been cancer to coming out of nowhere and punching her ticket to the Olympics in one year. That’s quite a turnaround.

“I didn’t want to say out loud, ‘What if I don’t make it?’” Larson said. “And I definitely didn’t want to say, “What if I do make it?’ I started thinking … ‘When I make it,’ so if it doesn’t happen I’ll be heart-broken and get over it. But if it does happen it will be great.”

Larson’s story doesn’t stop there. Her family moved to Boise, Idaho when she was in high school and there was not a formal swimming program at her new school. They only swam four hours a week but Larson, who also liked volleyball, track and softball, wanted to choose swimming as her pastime. Her parents told her she would have to pay her own way in college so she was banking on getting a Division 2 scholarship via the pool.

Larson moved in with her aunt and uncle in Arizona and joined a club team that practiced four hours a day. She was finally getting what she wanted and needed. Shortly after that, Larson’s coach hooked her up with Texas A&M coach Steve Bultman and he offered her a swimming scholarship.

That was two years ago. Now she's headed to London.

“He took a big risk in recruiting me,” Larson said of Bultman. “It was really hard. I was the slowest kicker, I probably moved backwards a little bit. All of the drills, I was the last one to the wall and everyone had to be patient waiting for Breeja to come in so we could finish.”

Those days are behind her. In two years she went from last to first.

Great story.


These photos are from Opening Night at the Olympics in London. My guess is that the swimmer Breeja and her family are for Romney.

Gov. Scott Walker: The More We Hear From Romney, the Better Off We Are




Gov. Scott Walker: The More We Hear From Romney, the Better Off We Are

Governor Scott Walker (R) talked to Gretchen Carlson about the unemployment situation in Wisconsin on today’s Fox and Friends. The unemployment rate in Wisconsin has gone from 7.7 percent to 6.8, which Walker said has happened since they put a different focus on creating jobs.

Since all 17 states saw a drop much greater than the national unemployment rate, Walker said,

“That’s because of a renewed focus of Republican governors. Whether it’s in my state, whether it’s other states throughout the Midwest and throughout the country, they put the focus on people creating jobs, not just the government and I think that tells you what would happen if we put a chief executive who thought the same way at our national level.”


He continued, “When we say Wisconsin’s open for business, we mean it and I think those are things that Governor Romney is talking about at the national level, which I think provides a great contrast to what we see in Washington.”


Walker said that he believes that the more Romney talks about his agenda to turn the economy around and get our fiscal house in order, the better off he is.


“I also think the more times we hear from Romney, the better off we’re going to be because he’s got a great message.”

Support for Chik-fil-A is getting national attention ~ Fantastic!





Dan Cathy, the president and chief operating officer of popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A, said in a radio interview this week that legalizing same-sex marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

Appearing on “The Ken Coleman Show,” Cathy spoke of his company’s pride in its socially conservative character, but then offered an assessment of same-sex marriage that might lose the chain a few customers.

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,’” said Cathy.


.

Chick-fil-A is promoting National Eat at Chick-fil-A Day on August 1st.


‘Imagine how clearly that message would be heard across the nation if Chick-fil-A reported record sales this Wednesday!’ said [National Organization for Marriage's’ [Brian] Brown, who has joined Huckabee in supporting Chick-fil-A day. ‘Please join me this Wednesday in supporting this courageous company, while at the same time sending a powerful message of support to every individual and every company with the courage to stand for marriage.’”

Mitt Romney Gives Speech To VFW and Gets Standing Ovation ( full video and transcript)





Here is complete video of Gov. Mitt Romney’s speech yesterday to the Veteran’s of Foreign Wars (VFW). Romney praised the veterans for their incredible service to America. He also took the occasion to set forth his vision of Foreign Policy, and hammered Barack Obama for his policies that have made America weaker both home, and abroad.

Very strong speech by Romney. He went after Obama for putting his own political interests ahead of the nation, citing the National Security leaks from his administration to the media. Romney was greeted warmly by the VFW, and received repeated rounds of applause during his remarks.


.

TRANSCRIPT: Mitt Romney’s Remarks at VFW National Convention


delivered remarks at the Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention in Reno, Nevada. The following is a transcript of the remarks as prepared for delivery:

“Thank you. Commander Richard DeNoyer, I appreciate the introduction, and I’m proud to see a combat veteran from Massachusetts serving as National Commander of the VFW.

Ladies Auxiliary President Gwen Rankin, incoming National Commander John Hamilton, incoming Ladies Auxiliary President Leanne Lemley, Adjutant General Allen “Gunner” Kent, Executive Director Bob Wallace, distinguished guests and members of the VFW: Thank you for your generous welcome.

I want to start today with a few words about the unimaginable tragedy in Colorado last week. We’ve since learned that among the victims were four people who had served – or were serving – our country in uniform. Today, our hearts go out to the families of John Larimer of the U.S. Navy; Rebecca Wingo, an Air Force veteran; Jesse Childress, an Army veteran and member of the Air Force reserve; and Jonathan Blunk, a Navy veteran who died shielding his girlfriend from the spray of bullets. The loss of four Americans who served our country only adds to the profound tragedy of that day. All Americans are grateful for their service and deeply saddened by their deaths. We mourn them and we will remember them.

The VFW is now over two million strong. It has a special place in America’s heart. Some of you fought recently, in Iraq or Afghanistan. Others are old enough to have marched, flown, or sailed by orders of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Whatever your age, whether you are a Republican or a Democrat, whenever you served – there’s one thing you have in common: You answered the call of your country in a time of war. From December 7th, 1941 to September 11, 2001, whenever America has been tested, you stepped forward. You come from our farms, our great cities, our small towns and quiet neighborhoods. Many of you have known violence so that your neighbors could only know peace. You have done more than protect America; your courage and service defines America. You are America at our best and it is an honor to address you.

Our veterans are part of a proud tradition that stretches back to the battlefields at Lexington and Concord – and now to places like Fallujah and Kandahar. Year after year, our men and women in uniform have added proud achievements to their record of service. And President Obama pointed to some of them yesterday in his speech.

Any time our military accomplishes a vital mission it is a proud moment for our nation. But we owe our veterans and our military more than just an accounting of our successes. They deserve a fair and frank assessment of the whole picture – of where we are and where we want to be. And when it comes to national security and foreign policy, as with our economy, the last few years have been a time of declining influence and missed opportunity.

Just consider some of the challenges I discussed at your last national convention:

Since then, has the American economy recovered?

Has our ability to shape world events been enhanced, or diminished?

Have we gained greater confidence among our allies, and greater respect from our adversaries?

And, perhaps most importantly, has the most severe security threat facing America and our friends, a nuclear-armed Iran, become more or less likely?

These clear measures are the ultimate tests of American leadership. And, by these standards, we haven’t seen much in the President’s first term that inspires confidence in a second.

The President’s policies have made it harder to recover from the deepest recession in seventy years … exposed the military to cuts that no one can justify … compromised our national-security secrets … and in dealings with other nations, given trust where it is not earned, insult where it is not deserved, and apology where it is not due.

From Berlin to Cairo to the United Nations, President Obama has shared his view of America and its place among nations. I have come here today to share mine.

I am an unapologetic believer in the greatness of this country. I am not ashamed of American power. I take pride that throughout history our power has brought justice where there was tyranny, peace where there was conflict, and hope where there was affliction and despair. I do not view America as just one more point on the strategic map, one more power to be balanced. I believe our country is the greatest force for good the world has ever known, and that our influence is needed as much now as ever. And I am guided by one overwhelming conviction and passion: This century must be an American Century.

In 1941, Henry Luce called on his countrymen – just then realizing their strength – “to create the first great American century.” And they succeeded: together with their allies, they won World War II, they rescued Europe, they defeated Communism, and America took its place as leader of the free world. Across the globe, they fought, they bled, they led. They showed the world the extraordinary courage of the American heart and the generosity of the American spirit.

That courage and generosity remains unchanged today. But sadly, this president has diminished American leadership, and we are reaping the consequences. The world is dangerous, destructive, chaotic. And the two men running to be your commander-in-chief must offer their answers to the challenges we face.

Like a watchman in the night, we must remain at our post – and keep guard of the freedom that defines and ennobles us, and our friends. In an American Century, we have the strongest economy and the strongest military in the world. In an American Century, we secure peace through our strength. And if by absolute necessity we must employ it, we must wield our strength with resolve. In an American Century, we lead the free world and the free world leads the entire world.

If we do not have the strength or vision to lead, then other powers will take our place, pulling history in a very different direction. A just and peaceful world depends on a strong and confident America. I pledge to you that if I become commander-in-chief, the United States of America will fulfill its duty, and its destiny.

American leadership depends, as it always has, on our economic strength, on our military strength, and on our moral strength. If any of these falter, no skill of diplomacy or presidential oratory can compensate. Today, the strength of our economy is in jeopardy.

A healthy American economy is what underwrites American power. When growth is missing, government revenue falls, social spending rises, and many in Washington look to cut defense spending as an easy out. That includes our current President.

Today, we are just months away from an arbitrary, across-the-board budget reduction that would saddle the military with a trillion dollars in cuts, severely shrink our force structure, and impair our ability to meet and deter threats. Don’t bother trying to find a serious military rationale behind any of this, unless that rationale is wishful thinking. Strategy is not driving President Obama’s massive defense cuts. In fact, his own Secretary of Defense warned that these reductions would be “devastating.” And he is right.

That devastation starts at home. These cuts would only weaken an already stretched VA system and impair our solemn commitment that every veteran receives care second to none. I will not allow that to happen.

This is not the time for the President’s radical cuts in the military. Look around the globe. Other major powers are rapidly adding to their military capabilities, some with intentions very different from ours. The regime in Tehran is drawing closer to developing a nuclear weapon. The threat of radical Islamic terrorism persists. The threat of weapons of mass destruction proliferation is ever-present. And we are still at war and still have uniformed men and women in conflict.

All this and more is ongoing in the world. And yet the President has chosen this moment for wholesale reductions in the nation’s military capacity. When the biggest announcement in his last State of the Union address on improving our military was that the Pentagon will start using more clean energy – then you know it’s time for a change.

We’re not the first people to observe this. It is reported that Bob Gates, the President’s first secretary of defense, bluntly addressed another security problem within this administration. After secret operational details of the bin Laden raid were given to reporters, Secretary Gates walked into the West Wing and told the Obama team to “shut up.” He added a colorful word for emphasis.

Lives of American servicemen and women are at stake. But astonishingly, the administration failed to change its ways. More top-secret operations were leaked, even some involving covert action in Iran.

This isn’t a partisan issue; it’s a national security crisis. And yesterday, Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said, quote, “I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks.”

This conduct is contemptible. It betrays our national interest. It compromises our men and women in the field. And it demands a full and prompt investigation by a special counsel, with explanation and consequence. Obama appointees, who are accountable to President Obama’s Attorney General, should not be responsible for investigating the leaks coming from the Obama White House.

Whoever provided classified information to the media, seeking political advantage for the administration, must be exposed, dismissed, and punished. The time for stonewalling is over.

It is not enough to say the matter is being looked into, and leave it at that. When the issue is the political use of highly sensitive national security information, it is unacceptable to say, “We’ll report our findings after Election Day.”

Exactly who in the White House betrayed these secrets? Did a superior authorize it? These are things that Americans are entitled to know – and they are entitled to know right now. If the President believes – as he said last week – that the buck stops with him, then he owes all Americans a full and prompt accounting of the facts.

And let me make this very clear: These events make the decision we face in November all the more important. What kind of White House would reveal classified material for political gain? I’ll tell you right now: Mine won’t.

The harm done when national security secrets are betrayed extends, of course, to the trust that allies place in the United States.

The operating principle of American foreign policy has been to work with our allies so that we can deter aggression before it breaks out into open conflict. That policy depends on nurturing our alliances and standing up for our common values.

Yet the President has moved in the opposite direction.

It began with the sudden abandonment of friends in Poland and the Czech Republic. They had courageously agreed to provide sites for our anti-missile systems, only to be told, at the last hour, that the agreement was off. As part of the so-called reset in policy, missile defenses were sacrificed as a unilateral concession to the Russian government.

If that gesture was designed to inspire good will from Russia, it clearly missed the mark. The Russian government defended the dictator in Damascus, arming him as he slaughtered the Syrian people.

We can only guess what Vladimir Putin makes of the Obama administration. He regained the Russian presidency in a corrupt election, and for that, he got a congratulatory call from the Oval Office. And then there was that exchange picked up by a microphone that President Obama didn’t know was on. We heard him asking Dmitry Medvedev to tell Mr. Putin to give him “space.” “This is my last election,” President Obama said, and “After my election I’ll have more flexibility.”

Why is flexibility with Russian leaders more important than transparency to the American people?

President Obama had a moment of candor, however, just the other day. He said that the actions of the Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez have not had a serious national security impact on us. In my view, inviting Hezbollah into our hemisphere is severe, serious, and a threat.

But at least he was consistent. After all, this is the president who faltered when the Iranian people were looking for support in their struggle against the ayatollahs. That uprising was treated as an inconvenient problem for the President’s policy of engagement, instead of as a moral and strategic opportunity. That terrible misjudgment should never be repeated. When unarmed women and men in Tehran find the courage to confront their oppressors, at risk of torture and death, they should hear the unequivocal voice of an American president affirming their right to be free.

I will leave Reno this evening on a trip abroad that will take me to England, Poland, and Israel. And since I wouldn’t venture into another country to question American foreign policy, I will tell you right here – before I leave – what I think of this administration’s shabby treatment of one of our finest friends.

President Obama is fond of lecturing Israel’s leaders. He was even caught by a microphone deriding them. He has undermined their position, which was tough enough as it was. And even at the United Nations, to the enthusiastic applause of Israel’s enemies, he spoke as if our closest ally in the Middle East was the problem.

The people of Israel deserve better than what they have received from the leader of the free world. And the chorus of accusations, threats, and insults at the United Nations should never again include the voice of the President of the United States.

There are values, causes, and nations that depend on American strength, on the clarity of our purpose, and on the reliability of our commitments. There is work in this world that only America and our allies can do, hostile powers that only we can deter, and challenges that only we can overcome.

For the past decade, among those challenges has been the war in Afghanistan. As commander-in-chief, I will have a solemn duty to our men and women in uniform. A president owes our troops, their families, and the American people a clear explanation of our mission, and a commitment not to play politics with the decisions of war.

I have been critical of the President’s decision to withdraw the surge troops during the fighting season, against the advice of the commanders on the ground. President Obama would have you believe that anyone who disagrees with his decisions is arguing for endless war. But the route to more war – and to potential attacks here at home – is a politically timed retreat.

As president, my goal in Afghanistan will be to complete a successful transition to Afghan security forces by the end of 2014. I will evaluate conditions on the ground and solicit the best advice of our military commanders. And I will affirm that my duty is not to my political prospects, but to the security of the nation.

We face another continuing challenge in a rising China. China is attentive to the interests of its government – but it too often disregards the rights of its people. It is selective in the freedoms it allows; and, as with its one-child policy, it can be ruthless in crushing the freedoms it denies. In conducting trade with America, it permits flagrant patent and copyright violations … forestalls American businesses from competing in its market … and manipulates its currency to obtain unfair advantage. It is in our mutual interest for China to be a partner for a stable and secure world, and we welcome its participation in trade. But the cheating must finally be brought to a stop. President Obama hasn’t done it and won’t do it. I will.

We’ll need that same clarity of purpose and resolve in the Middle East. America cannot be neutral in the outcome there. We must clearly stand for the values of representative government, economic opportunity, and human rights. And we must stand against the extension of Iranian or jihadist influence.

Egypt is at the center of this historical drama. In many ways, it has the power to tip the balance in the Arab world toward freedom and modernity. As president, I will not only direct the billions in assistance we give to Egypt toward that goal, but I will also work with partner nations to place conditions on their assistance as well. Unifying our collective influence behind a common purpose will foster the development of a government that represents all Egyptians, maintains peace with Israel, and promotes peace throughout the region. The United States is willing to help Egypt support peace and prosperity, but we will not be complicit in oppression and instability.

There is no greater danger in the world today than the prospect of the ayatollahs in Tehran possessing nuclear weapons capability. Yet for all the talks and conferences, all of the extensions and assurances, can anyone say we are farther from this danger now than four years ago?

The same ayatollahs who each year mark a holiday by leading chants of “Death to America” are not going to be talked out of their pursuit of nuclear weapons. What’s needed is all the firmness, clarity, and moral courage that we and our allies can gather. Sanctions must be enforced without exception, cutting off the regime’s sources of wealth. Negotiations must secure full and unhindered access for inspections. As it is, the Iranian regime claims the right to enrich nuclear material for supposedly peaceful purposes. This claim is discredited by years of deception. A clear line must be drawn: There must be a full suspension of any enrichment, period.

And at every turn, Iran must know that the United States and our allies stand as one in these critical objectives. Only in this way can we successfully counter the catastrophic threat that Iran presents. I pledge to you and to all Americans that if I become commander-in-chief, I will use every means necessary to protect ourselves and the region, and to prevent the worst from happening while there is still time.

It is a mistake – and sometimes a tragic one – to think that firmness in American foreign policy can bring only tension or conflict. The surest path to danger is always weakness and indecision. In the end, it is resolve that moves events in our direction, and strength that keeps the peace.

I will not surrender America’s leadership in the world. We must have confidence in our cause, clarity in our purpose, and resolve in our might.

This is very simple: if you do not want America to be the strongest nation on earth, I am not your President. You have that President today.

The 21st century can and must be an American Century. It began with terror, war, and economic calamity. It is our duty to steer it onto the path of freedom, peace, and prosperity.

Fewer members of the Greatest Generation are with us today – and they can’t hold the torch as high as they have in the past. We must now seize the torch they carried so gallantly and at such sacrifice. It is an eternal torch of decency, freedom and hope. It is not America’s torch alone. But it is America’s duty – and honor – to hold it high enough so that all the world can see its light.

Believe in America.

Thank you and God Bless the United States of America.”

If I may suggest to every person that is going to vote in this next election to watch this video you will not be sorry. Mitt hit important topics and one can feel it was right from his heart. More and more I am impressed with Mitt, the more I learn, the more I hear him speak.

Romney on Obama's Attack On Business Owners :“The Context is Worse Than the Quote” (Video)





LARRY KUDLOW: “Why do you think President Obama, what did he mean, if you’ve got a business, you didn’t build it, someone else made that happen? He claims it’s being taken out of context. What do you think it means? Do you think this is Obama anti-business, anti-entrepreneur? Or do you think maybe he has been treated unfairly?”

GOV. ROMNEY: “Well, just read the whole speech. I found the speech even more disconcerting than just that particular line. The context is worse than the quote. The context, he says, you know, you think you’ve been successful because you’re smart, but he says a lot of people are smart. You think you’ve been successful because you work hard, a lot of people work hard. This is an ideology which says hey, we’re all the same here, we ought to take from all and give to one another and that achievement, individual initiative and risk-taking and success are not to be rewarded as they have in the past. It’s a very strange and in some respects foreign to the American experience type of philosophy. We have always been a nation that has celebrated success of various kinds. The kid that gets the honor roll, the individual worker that gets a promotion, the person that gets a better job. And in fact, the person that builds a business. And by the way, if you have a business and you started it, you did build it. And you deserve credit for that. It was not built for you by government. And by the way, we pay for government. Government doesn’t come free. The people who begin enterprises, the people who work in enterprises, they’re the ones paying for government. So his whole philosophy is an upside-down philosophy that does not comport with the American experience. And if we want to get people working again–and that’s my priority–if we want to get people working again, we have to celebrate success and achievement and not demonize it and denigrate the people who have worked hard, who are smart, who have made the kinds of investments to build a brighter future.”

Mitt Romney: "This Election is About the Soul of America" -- The Government or the Individual






Speaking yesterday at a Town Hall Meeting in Bowling Green, Ohio, Mitt Romney framed the 2012 Election as a battle for the “Soul of America

.” By that Romney explained it is a battle over whether we will stay true to the Founders belief that our rights as individuals flow from “the Creator” or from “Government.” Will the freedom of the individual remain supreme, or will the role of Government as central in our society be the course we take.

“Barack Obama’s attempt to denigrate and diminish the achievement of the individual diminishes us all.” – Mitt Romney

VP Dick Cheney Says Mitt Romney Best Suited to Handle 9/11-Like Attack





Cheney says Mitt Romney is the ‘only’ man to make the country’s foreign policy decisions


Washington Post


WILSON, Wyo. — Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Republican fundraisers Thursday night that Mitt Romney is the “only” man who can make the right decisions in unexpected foreign policy crises. The presumptive 2012 Republican presidential nominee called Cheney a “great American leader” — and didn’t mention former President George W. Bush in a 20-minute speech to a country club reception.

Cheney said serving under four presidents taught him that a surprising international crisis is inevitable.


“When I think about the kind of individual I want in the Oval Office in that moment of crisis, who has to make those key decisions, some of them life-and-death decisions, some of them decisions as commander-in-chief, who has the responsibility for sending some of our young men and women into harm’s way, that man is Mitt Romney,” Cheney said to applause.


Donors gathered Thursday night under a tent next to the driving range at Teton Pines Country Club, a golfing community where Cheney has a home. After Cheney introduced him, Romney praised the former vice president as “a great American leader.”


Romney raised more than $4 million with Cheney, long a strong fundraiser in part because of his popularity among the conservative Republican base. The Cheney-sponsored events in this resort area near Yellowstone National Park represent a welcome endorsement for Romney, who is eager to win over more of the party’s base.

Cheney was hosting Romney at a private dinner at his Wyoming home after he posed for photos with Romney and the fundraisers who had flown from all over the country for the event. They were drawn either by Cheney or by the dramatic beauty of the mountains in this resort valley. New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, a national campaign finance co-chair, was in attendance, as were bundlers from Texas, Arizona, Oklahoma and New York, among other places.



Wild Thing's comment.............

I agree with Cheney. Obama is the worst and if we ever did have another 9-11 he would never go after the terrorists, he would rather invite them to the WH.

Unemployment Rate Dropped In Every State That Elected A Republican Governor In 2010





Unemployment Rate Dropped In Every State That Elected A Republican Governor In 2010

Breitbart

n 2010, influenced by the Tea Party and its focus on fiscal issues, 17 states elected Republican governors. And, according to an Examiner.com analysis, every one of those states saw a drop in their unemployment rates since January of 2011. Furthermore, the average drop in the unemployment rate in these states was 1.35%, compared to the national decline of .9%, which means, according to the analysis, that the job market in these Republican states is improving 50% faster than the national rate.

States with Republican Governors and the unemployment rate

Kansas - 6.9% to 6.1% = a decline of 0.8%

Maine - 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%

Michigan - 10.9% to 8.5% = a decline of 2.4%

New Mexico - 7.7% to 6.7% = a decline of 1.0%

Oklahoma - 6.2% to 4.8% = a decline of 1.4%

Pennsylvania - 8.0% to 7.4% = a decline of 0.6%

Tennessee - 9.5% to 7.9% = a decline of 1.6%

Wisconsin - 7.7% to 6.8% = a decline of 0.9%

Wyoming - 6.3% to 5.2% = a decline of 1.1%

Alabama - 9.3% to 7.4% = a decline of 1.9%

Georgia - 10.1% to 8.9% = a decline of 1.2%

South Carolina - 10.6% to 9.1% = a decline of 1.5%

South Dakota - 5.0% to 4.3% = a decline of 0.7%

Florida - 10.9% to 8.6% = a decline of 2.3%

Nevada - 13.8% to 11.6% = a decline of 2.2%

Iowa - 6.1% to 5.1% = a decline of 1.0%

Ohio - 9.0% to 7.3% = a decline of 1.7%

On the other hand, the unemployment rate in states that elected Democrats in 2010 dropped, on average, as much as the national rate decline and, in some states such as New York, the unemployment rate has risen since January of 2011.

This is yet another example of how the so-called “blue state” model is not working.

Awesome All West Discusses His ‘80 Communists in the House’ Claim





‘You Can Call it Communism, Progressivism, Socialism, Marxism, or Statism’: Rep. West Defends His ‘80 Communists in the House’ Claim


During a Fox July Fourth special featuring Rep. Allen West (R-FL) and political strategist Frank Luntz, an audience member asked the Florida congressman how he expects to heal the America political system when he says divisive and “absurd” things like there are “70 Communists in the House of Representatives.”

“I think one of the things that’s really ruined our politics is rhetoric,” said Aaron, the audience member. “And I think for a congressman to make the accusation that are 70 Communists in the House of Representatives is an absurd statement and it doesn’t really reflect the story you just told.”

Rep. West disagreed.

“But it does reflect the story I just told because it reflects a person that has studied political theory and ideology. I have a Bachelor’s degree and two Master’s degrees in political science, political theory, political ideology. And the thing is you have to be able to understand the two competing principles of philosophies of governance in this country,” Rep. West said.

He continued:

When you go back and you read the documents, the Declaration of Independence, the full declaration, the full Constitution, you’ll understand limited government, you’ll understand fiscal responsibility, you’ll understand individual sovereignty, free markets … strong national defense.

But there are people on the other side, and you can call them whatever you wish, you can call it Communism, Progressivism, Socialism, Marxism, or Statism …They believe in creating and expanding an entitlement or welfare state.

“And you can’t tell me that you’re not seeing that in the United States of America right now,” he added.

Wild Thing's comment............


Allen West understands and I love how he corrects people that try to make him soften on his stance.


If you refuse to see the communists, you won’t resist them, and that is perfect for them. That is their goal.

“Justice Roberts is a smart man and a smart man could not have made this decision. Because you look at his decision. It’s just fraught with ambiguities and inconsistencies and it doesn’t make sense. He knows it doesn’t make sense. He grasped at the tax concept so he could justify it… In this case everybody knew what was the right thing and he did the wrong thing.”

“The Supreme Court may have made their decision. But the American people haven’t. . . Day One. Job One. Repeal ObamaCare.”

In a few months, Americans will cast their ballots and make a choice. Do we continue on a path of rising, out of control health care costs? Do we continue with massive tax increases to fund a new two trillion dollar program? Do we continue stifling our economy with a growing government that discourages hiring? Or do we chart a new course and change directions. The Supreme Court may have made their decision, but the American people haven't. Day one. Job one. Repeal Obamacare.

Gov. Bobby Jindal making the point that President Obama is simply unable to run on his record, and is therefore, trying to run against former President George W. Bush:

“Now all of a sudden he’s trying to run against President Bush, eight years too late for that.

Fantastic Rep. Trey Gowdy a Hero and Warrior for Truth and America






After hours of feigned outrage and different maneuvers from Democrats to try and stop the contempt hearing, Rep. Trey Gowdy finally took his turn and passionately laid out the case for why there is no more time for AG Eric Holder, noting the proof that high level officials in the DOJ knew about gunwalking well before Brian Terry was murdered.

But then a few minutes later he spoke up again to address the calls to blame the Bush administration, saying that he’s for bringing anyone before the committee who knows about gunwalking because it’s wrong under any administration. But, he adds, none of that mitigates Holder’s responsibility to comply with a subpoena from Congress and to comply with the law.

Awesome Neil Cavuto Rips EC President for Saying U.S. Banks Created Europe’s Mess




Remember Who Magically Appears to Save Your Sorry Ass’: Cavuto Rips EC President for Saying U.S. Banks Created Europe’s Mess

Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto closed his 4.pm. show Tuesday with possibly the most epic cable news rant of the year, torching European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso for daring to blame the European economic crisis on North America.

“For god’s sake wake up and sniff your obviously spiked cappuccino,” Cavuto exclaimed while commenting in frustration on Barroso’s remarks during the G20 summit in Mexico Tuesday. “U.S. banks did not create your mess, you did. U.S. banks did not grant cradle-to-the-grave government protections that were unsustainable decades ago let alone today, you did. U.S. banks did not make austerity a foreign concept in Europe, you did. And U.S. banks didn’t force public workers to retire at age 52 or refuse to ask them to contribute so much as a single euro to their healthcare benefits, or their prescription drug benefits, or their ridiculously–unaffordable spousal and kid benefits, you did.

“You created the safety net and now you’re throwing us under the net? I don’t think so Peppe. We are many things in this country, but even our most gullible institutions aren’t half that stupid.”

Cavuto exploded after hearing Barroso’s remarks during a news conference on the first day of the G20 summit in Mexico Tuesday. When asked by a reporter why funds from North American governments should be used to help Europe, the Portuguese politician and European Commission President answered that there needs to be cooperation among the world’s governments, but noted that ”this crisis was not originated in Europe.”

“Since you mention North America, this crisis was originated in North America and many of our financial sector was contaminated by, how can I put it, unorthodox practices, from some sectors of the financial market,” Barroso said.

Cavuto would not have such remarks from “pathetic finger-pointing socialists.”

Mitt Romney: "Hope & Change" Obama now "Hoping to Change the Subject" from Disastrous Record (video)





Complete video today of Mitt Romney’s remarks at a Campaign Rally on his Bus Tour in Newark, Ohio. Romney gave a brief, but energetic speech that really is beginning to zero in on just a few key themes that can form the basis of his Fall stump speech. Romney is methodically turning his campaign into a call to action for Americans who want to reverse the disastrous European-style big Government, high taxes, deficit-spending paradigm. His call to take up the torch of Freedom from the Greatest Generation and preserve America for the future has a strong appeal. His optimism about the future of America if we return to the principles that made us great is simple but strong. After 3+ years of economic failure by Barack Obama, Americans are hungry for real hope and optimism that things can get better. Romney needs to keep hammering these themes.

Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s Victory Speech after Winning Recall Election by Wide Margin




.


Here is a statement issued tonight by Gov. Mitt Romney congratulating GOP Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on his huge victory tonight in the Recall Election mounted by the Democrats against him:


“I congratulate Scott Walker on his victory in Wisconsin. Governor Walker has demonstrated over the past year what sound fiscal policies can do to turn an economy around, and I believe that in November voters across the country will demonstrate that they want the same in Washington, D.C. Tonight’s results will echo beyond the borders of Wisconsin. Governor Walker has shown that citizens and taxpayers can fight back – and prevail – against the runaway government costs imposed by labor bosses. Tonight voters said ‘no’ to the tired, liberal ideas of yesterday, and ‘yes’ to fiscal responsibility and a new direction. I look forward to working with Governor Walker to help build a better, brighter future for all Americans.”

A Walker: Win Would Mean "Victory For Courage" To Take On Tough Issues





"I think it’s a sign there’s real concern, what I’ve seen over the weekend, which are voters who tell me they voted for my opponent or they tell me they’re Democrats, but in each case they tell me they’re voting for me now either because they like the courage I take on the tough problems or a number of them … tell me they don’t like the recall process. My guess is the president and his folks just want to shy away from that," Gov. Scott Walker (R-Wis.) said to FOX News about the the recall election tomorrow.

"My problem with public sector union leaders, the bosses, has been they stood in the way of protecting the taxpayer. I knew for eight years as a county official, I saw the biggest barrier to protecting core services for our people and still protecting property taxpayers was out of control special interest," Walker said to FOX News' Neal Cavuto.

First Lady Nancy Reagan endorsed Mitt Romney




Weekly Standard

Washington Wire


Nancy Reagan endorsed Mitt Romney Thursday, after a private meeting over lemonade and cookies in Los Angeles.

The former first lady’s office put out a statement congratulating Mr. Romney on notching the 1,144 delegates necessary to become the GOP nominee. She said that her late husband, Ronald Reagan, would have approved of a Romney presidency.

Mitt Romney, with his wife Ann, met this afternoon in Los Angeles with former first lady Nancy Reagan to receive her endorsement. "Mitt and Ann Romney joined me at my home this afternoon for some lemonade and cookies and I offered my firm endorsement of his campaign for President,"


“Ronnie would have liked Gov. Romney’s business background and his strong principles, and I have to say, I do, too,” Mrs. Reagan said in the statement. “I believe Mitt Romney has the experience and leadership skills that our country so desperately needs, and I look forward to seeing him elected president in November.”

LTC Rep. Allen West is Fantastic!!!






The progressives who attended Congressman Allen West’s town hall meeting managed to drop some choice questions on the good Congressman. One of the questions was about an alleged Article 15 hearing that he supposedly received in the Army- never mind the fact that West never received an Article 15 hearing before leaving the Army- West left the military with full honors and his pension.

West took a bit of an issue with the question, and posed one of his own to his detractors-

“If you guys want to go back and talk about what happened nine years ago to me, lets talk about the President doing blow.”



Wild Thing's comment..........

Give this man an award!!!!!!!! God bless Allen West . I love his comeback to the jerk in the audience.

Rep. Paul Ryan To Obama Economic Adviser Austan Goolsbee on FOX News





Austan Goolsbee: This was a case where they (Bain) cancelled the pensions they drove the company into the ground. But the investors from Bain actually profited a great deal.


Chris Wallace (host): Let me follow up with Congressman Ryan because the Obama campaign says the point of Romney economics is to make money for Bain, to make money for their investors, even if all the workers get wiped out. And, in this particular case, in the steel mill in Kansas City the workers, that plant went bankrupt. 750 workers were laid off and Bain did make millions of dollars in profits.

Paul Ryan: You know what’s ironic about this, Chris? Mitt Romney was running the Olympics during this time. (Zing) He wasn’t even running Bain during the time period in question. (Zing) I think the individual, if I’m not mistaken who was running Bain is a big Obama contributor. (Zing) But, more to the point Chris. What Bain did was they used “private” capital to help struggling businesses. What President Obama is doing, is he’s gambling with taxpayer money (Zing) and giving money to corporate contributors, campaign contributors like Solyndra (Zing) and he’s losing taxpayer money. (Zing) So what we have in the Obama administration is this crony capitalism (Zing) this corporate welfare (Zing) where President Obama thinks it’s right to take taxpayer dollars to give to private companies and take bets on these private companies. (Zing) That’s wrong. What is right is a private sector where you have risk to capital. You put capital in businesses where they’re struggling or not to try to grow those businesses. Some succeed. Some don’t. On the net when Mitt Romney ran Bain they were very successful. They created thousands of jobs. (Zing) Great success stories. (Zing) But more to the point. We don’t think that government should be in the position of picking winners and losers in the economy which is the result of the president’s economics. ( K-POW!!!)

Wonderful Marco Rubio on Obama: “We have Not Seen Such a Divisive Figure in Modern American History” – Video





Sen. Marco Rubio telling the South Carolina GOP Convention about President Barack Obama: “We have not seen such a divisive figure in modern American History.” He slammed Obama for having no intention on running on his failed record, but instead following a strategy of dividing America – Rich vs. Poor, Women vs. Men. Rubio said Obama’s strategy goes against the very heart of what has made America exceptional. The idea that someone else has to do worse for you to do better “is not who we have been,” Rubio said.

I have posted this before a long time ago, but it is so good and needs to be posted again. To anyone considering not voting in the General, or writing someone in that is not on the ballot....please watch this video.

Gunny adds his message to this........

Listen up and hear me well! This is a critical time for our nation, and too many people are sitting back to let others do the hard work. So it’s time for all of us to put some gas in it and persuade all eligible gun owners to register. That’s why I volunteered my time to film the ad shown here.

Now it’s your turn and I want to see results! Start now by sending this message to everyone you know who supports the Second Amendment.

I expect 110% right now from everyone who values our freedoms! NO EXCUSES. And remember — pain is just weakness leaving the body!

"If Mitt Romney Doesn’t Win the Election, America Will Be on the Brink of Bankruptcy" - said Gov. Rick Perry on Neil Cavuto Show






Gov. Rick Perry: If Mitt Romney Doesn’t Win the Election, America Will Be on the Brink of Bankruptcy

Governor Rick Perry, someone who knows what it takes to create 1.2 million jobs, weighed in on today’s Your World.

He told Neil Cavuto that “it’s not rocket science,” describing that small businesses don’t need big government telling them how to run everything.
When it comes to supporting Mitt Romney for the presidency, he is on board, saying, “I’m a heck of a lot more comfortable with him than I am Barack Obama.” Perry added that in the 2012 election it’s going to come down to the economy. “Mitt Romney has to win this election in November of 2012, or our country truly is going to be on the verge of bankruptcy and international affairs, that I suggest to you, none of us are going to like.”
'Mitt Romney has to win this election'...'We have to make changes and we have to make changes in a hurry'

Obama Better Checks Facts....Romney Was Strong On Wanting Osama bin Laden Taken Out Killed




Team Obama might want to do their homework before tossing out a bogus charge like 'Romney wouldn't have gone after Bin Laden.' In a Republican debate at the Reagan Library in May of 2007, moderator Chris Matthews asks Romney about the very ...quote that's in the news today. Romney says 'we'll move everything to get him.'....At the end Romney adds "he is gonna pay and he will die!"

Texas Governor Rick Perry Endorses Mitt Romney




Texas Governor Rick Perry Endorses Mitt Romney

After previously endorsing Newt Gingrich in the presidential race, Texas Governor Rick Perry threw his support behind Mitt Romney.

“Mitt Romney has earned the Republican Presidential nomination through hard-work, a strong organization, and disciplined message of restoring America after nearly four years of failed job-killing policies from President Obama and his administration. So today I join the many conservative Republicans across the nation in endorsing Mitt Romney for President and pledge to him, my constituents and the Republican Party than I will continue to work hard to help defeat President Obama. American jobs, economic stability and national security depend on electing a new president. Mitt ‘s vision and record of private sector success will put America back on the path of job creation, economic opportunity and limited government.”




.


Wild Thing's comment..........

My very favorite. I cried when I did this post and had to get one of Perry's photos from the campaign. I miss him, but I will always support him as Gov. and whatever his future holds.


Perry will always be my Hero. He has the most class, dignity, high character, I could go on and on. No one, there is NO one that can even come close to the kind of man he is.

I will add also that of all the candidates that have been in this race, Romney also has class and dignity. He has learned a lot along the way imo and I just keep praying his move more and more to conservative keeps happening. He has a beautiful family and one we can be proud of in our WH. Unlike the thugs Michelle and Barack the socialists that are in their now. They are a total disgrace to our Nation.


And that sicko Santorum still has not endorsed and he is the one that went on and on and on about what a great Christian he is, he is a phony!!!!


I have zero respect for Santorm and next I have less respect for Newt as well. Both of these men, Samtorum and Newt showed how much this whole campaign was more about them then about America.

Here's a flashback of Mitt Romney endorsing Rick Perry in the governors race 2 years ago

Mitt Romney Wins Five Primaries in Northeast and Gives Great Speech



.

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy



Here is most of the transcript of his speech:

For every single mom who feels heartbroken when she has to explain to her kids that she needs to take a second job … for grandparents who can’t afford the gas to visit their grandchildren … for the mom and dad who never thought they’d be on food stamps … for the small business owner desperately cutting back just to keep the doors open one more month – to all of the thousands of good and decent Americans I’ve met who want nothing more than a better chance, a fighting chance, to all of you, I have a simple message: Hold on a little longer. A better America begins tonight.


Tonight is the beginning of the end of the disappointments of the Obama years and the start of a new and better chapter that we will write together.


And I’ll tell you a little bit about myself. I’ll probably start out talking about my wonderful wife Ann – I usually do – and I’ll probably bore you with stories about our kids and grandkids. I’ll tell you about how much I love this country, where someone like my dad, who grew up poor and never graduated from college, could pursue his dreams and work his way up to running a great car company. Only in America could a man like my dad become governor of the state in which he once sold paint from the trunk of his car.


I know how to lead us out of this stagnant Obama economy and into a job-creating recovery!


Four years ago Barack Obama dazzled us in front of Greek columns with sweeping promises of hope and change. But after we came down to earth, after the celebration and parades, what do we have to show for three and a half years of President Obama?

Is it easier to make ends meet? Is it easier to sell your home or buy a new one? Have you saved what you needed for retirement? Are you making more in your job? Do you have a better chance to get a better job? Do you pay less at the pump?

If the answer were “yes” to those questions, then President Obama would be running for re-election based on his achievements…and rightly so. But because he has failed, he will run a campaign of diversions, distractions, and distortions. That kind of campaign may have worked at another place and in a different time. But not here and not now. It’s still about the economy …and we’re not stupid.


People are hurting in America. And we know that something is wrong, terribly wrong with the direction of the country.


Government is at the center of his vision. It dispenses the benefits, borrows what it cannot take, and consumes a greater and greater share of the economy. With Obamacare fully installed, government will come to control half the economy, and we will have effectively ceased to be a free enterprise society.

This President is putting us on a path where our lives will be ruled by bureaucrats and boards, commissions and czars. He’s asking us to accept that Washington knows best – and can provide all.

We’ve already seen where this path leads. It erodes freedom. It deadens the entrepreneurial spirit. And it hurts the very people it’s supposed to help. Those who promise to spread the wealth around only ever succeed in spreading poverty. Other nations have chosen that path. It leads to chronic high unemployment, crushing debt, and stagnant wages.

I have a very different vision for America, and of our future. It is an America driven by freedom, where free people, pursuing happiness in their own unique ways, create free enterprises that employ more and more Americans. Because there are so many enterprises that are succeeding, the competition for hard-working, educated and skilled employees is intense, and so wages and salaries rise.


I see an America with a growing middle class, with rising standards of living. I see children even more successful than their parents – some successful even beyond their wildest dreams – and others congratulating them for their achievement, not attacking them for it.

This America is fundamentally fair. We will stop the unfairness of urban children being denied access to the good schools of their choice; we will stop the unfairness of politicians giving taxpayer money to their friends’ businesses; we will stop the unfairness of requiring union workers to contribute to politicians not of their choosing; we will stop the unfairness of government workers getting better pay and benefits than the taxpayers they serve; and we will stop the unfairness of one generation passing larger and larger debts on to the next.

In the America I see, character and choices matter. And education, hard work, and living within our means are valued and rewarded. And poverty will be defeated, not with a government check, but with respect and achievement that is taught by parents, learned in school, and practiced in the workplace.

This is the America that was won for us by the nation’s Founders, and earned for us by the Greatest Generation. It is the America that has produced the most innovative, most productive, and the most powerful economy in the world.

As I look around at the millions of Americans without work, the graduates who can’t get a job, the soldiers who return home to an unemployment line, it breaks my heart. This does not have to be. It is the result of failed leadership and of a faulty vision. We will restore the promise of America only if we restore the principles of freedom and opportunity that made America the greatest nation on earth.

Today, the hill before us is a little steep but we have always been a nation of big steppers. Many Americans have given up on this President but they haven’t ever thought about giving up. Not on themselves. Not on each other. And not on America.

In the days ahead, join me in the next step toward that destination of November 6th, when across America we can give a sigh of relief and know that the Promise of America has been kept. The dreamers can dream a little bigger, the help wanted signs can be dusted off, and we can start again.

And this time we’ll get it right. We’ll stop the days of apologizing for success at home and never again apologize for America abroad.

There was a time – not so long ago – when each of us could walk a little taller and stand a little straighter because we had a gift that no one else in the world shared. We were Americans. That meant something different to each of us but it meant something special to all of us. We knew it without question. And so did the world.

Those days are coming back. That’s our destiny.

We believe in America. We believe in ourselves. Our greatest days are still ahead. We are, after all, Americans!

God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.

Michael Reagan: "Obama Lying About My Father" ~ He Sure Is!






saying President Barack Obama is “lying about my father to try and pass his piece of legislation.” Reagan said Obama is trying to “dress himself up as Ronald Reagan,” even though he is not doing what Reagan did.

Reagan was trying to close loopholes for the wealthy, but actually lower tax rates for all income levels – not raise the tax rate on the wealthy. Obama is trying to raise tax rates on the very people who have the capital to start businesses and create jobs.

Michael Reagan also said his father “would be applauding” the Paul Ryan budget plan.

This is a video of Mitt Romney where he described the “very different path” he represents for the country compared to Barack Obama. Romney went after Obama for his cronyism, and mocked his “all of the above” energy policy as meaning only for what is “above ground – wind and solar,” but not for coal, oil, and natural gas. Romney said he is genuinely for “all of the above” to make America energy independent.

CNBC - Rick Santelli - Taxing the Rich will not Offset the Deficit








On CNBC’s broadcast of “Squawk on the Street,” CME Group floor reporter Rick Santelli went through the numbers and explained why President Barack Obama’s so-called “Buffett rule” would do little to remedy federal deficit woes.

Santelli projected new government revenue that would be earned by imposing the rule, taking the number of millionaires and billionaires and applying the tax hike to their earnings.

At the end of the scenario, even with the rosiest projection of the number of millionaires and billionaires used, the new revenue falls significantly short of correcting the deficits the government is accumulating, according to Santelli.

“If you look at total public debt held, it has increased $792 billion in this time to a grand total of $15.6 trillion,” Santelli said. “You see what the problem is? We can bash people. We can drag people that used to be called successful and drag them down. But is it going to cure a problem? No. We cannot collect enough taxes to catch up with spending. Do I know a solution? Not really. Does your politicians know a solution? Does our commander-in-chief offer a solution? Absolutely not.”


Santelli added that he wasn’t clear on how making people pay their so-called “fair share” would result in better opportunities for his children.


“I have solutions but you know what? It will take a long time to go there,” he said. “People don’t really want to hear solutions. They want to change the dialogue, bait and switch so we get more worried about what people pay, what’s fair. How are my kids’ opportunities affected by how many millionaires there are? I don’t see that opportunities are affected. You know what I see will affect their opportunity? $15.6 Trillion.”

Scalia Likens Reading Obamacare to Cruel and Unusual Punishment

The Washington Free Beacon

Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia humorously invoked the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution, which forbids cruel and unusual punishments, when discussing the Obamacare legislation during oral argument today at the Supreme Court.

JUSTICE SCALIA: Mr. Kneedler, what happened to the Eighth Amendment? You really want us to go through these 2,700 pages?

(Laughter.)

JUSTICE SCALIA: And do you really expect the Court to do that? Or do you expect us to — to give this function to our law clerks?

Is this not totally unrealistic? That we are going to go through this enormous bill item by item and decide each one?

Sen. Marco Rubio Endorses Mitt Romney ~ This is a HUGE Endorsement for Mitt Romney




Sen. Marco Rubio last night on “Hannity” publicly endorsed Gov. Mitt Romney for President.

Rubio argued that both Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum have now admitted that the only way they can win the GOP Nomination is by denying Romney a majority at the end of the primary season and “having a floor fight in Tampa.” Rubio said there is no way that a “floor fight in Tampa in August” is a “recipe for victory.” Instead, Rubio called that a “recipe for disaster,” and a “recipe to deliver four more years to Barack Obama.”

“I am going to endorse Mitt Romney. The reason why is not only because he’s going to be the Republican Nominee, but he also offers at this point such a stark contrast to the President’s record. . .”

Former Vice President Dick Cheney had a heart transplant Saturday






FOX News


Former GOP Vice President Dick Cheney is recovering from heart transplant surgery at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Northern Virginia, a spokeswoman said Saturday evening.

In 2010, Cheney had a left ventricular assist device implanted for treatment of end-stage heart failure. The former vice president has been on the cardiac transplant list for more than 20 months.

Though he and his family do not know the identity of the donor, they will be forever grateful for this lifesaving gift, the spokeswoman also said.

Cheney, who is in intensive care, expressed his thanks to the teams of doctors and other medical professionals at Inova Fairfax and at George Washington University Hospital, where he also has been treated, for their "continued outstanding care.


Cheney, 71, served under George W. Bush from 2001 to 2009. He has a long history of cardio-vascular disease, having had five heart attacks since age 37.

Cheney was born in Lincoln, Neb., and served in the Nixon, then the Ford administration, for which he was chief of staff. He was elected to the House in 1978 as a Wyoming congressman and won reelected five times.

Cheney was secretary of Defense under much of George H.W. Bush’s administration, overseeing Operation Desert Storm. He was also chief executive officer for the Halliburton Co. from 1995 to 2000.

Cheney has remained a strong voice in the Republican party and has been an outspoken critic of President Obama.

He has undergone several bypass surgeries and other procedures, including the one two years ago. Cheney also had a mild heart attack in June 2010.

More than 3,100 Americans currently are on the national waiting list for a heart transplant. Just over 2,300 heart transplants were performed last year, according to the United Network for Organ Sharing. And 330 people died while waiting.

The group also reports 332 people over age 65 received a heart transplant last year.

The majority of transplants occur in 50- to 64-year-olds.

More than 70 percent of heart transplant recipients live at least five years, although survival is a bit lower for people over age 65.

Prayers for Dick Cheney and a speedy recovery and for his family.

Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania: Republicans Can Trust Romney to Govern as a Conservative


Toomey: Republicans Can Trust Romney to Govern as a Conservative

National Journal


HARRISBURG, Pa.--Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, who has said he won't endorse anyone in the Republican presidential race, on Friday praised front-runner Mitt Romney as a true conservative whom Republicans can trust as their nominee.

“I think Mitt Romney is a conservative, and I think if elected, he’ll govern as a conservative,” Toomey told reporters during a press conference at the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference, an annual gathering of conservative activists in the Keystone State.


“I think Governor Romney is absolutely committed to the principles of limited government,” Toomey said. “I think he knows the free-enterprise system is a source of prosperity and opportunity and personal fulfillment, and elevating people out of poverty. He’s been a practitioner, so he understands from a very concrete sense how markets work and create opportunities.”


Toomey's remarks came during a week in which prominent Republicans have been urging their party to unite behind a presidential candidate. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush endorsed Romney on Wednesday. On Thursday, Sen. Jim DeMint of South Carolina--like Toomey--praised Romney without endorsing him.

The praise from DeMint and Toomey is significant because of their standing with parts of the GOP base. DeMint is a leading tea party figure, and Toomey is a former president of the antitax Club For Growth.

As he has previously, Toomey declined to explicitly declare his preference for Romney. But he made it clear that he thinks highly of the former Massachusetts governor and would be satisfied with him as the nominee.


Wild Thing's comment...........

I think more and more people will see how bad Santorum truly is and not what we need to be President. Also the same with Newt. Romney has little by little been getting more conservative, Not anywhere close to what Gov. Perry is or my Gov. Scott here in Florida. But at least he is moving to the right like Ronald Reagan did so there is hope at least.

Mitt Romney Wins Puerto Rico!!!! Congratulations!




Romney sweeps Puerto Rico primary contest

In order to vote in the GOP presidential primary in Puerto Rico, voters must sign a "Republican Party of Puerto Rico Affiliation Form" pledging commitment to the ideological principles of the Party.


Romney’s campaign was endorsed by just about every prominent Republican on the Spanish-speaking island, and Santorum angered many Puerto Ricans with comments last week that they needed to make English their primary language if they wanted to pursue statehood.

“You can’t impose English on people. My sense is that he (Santorum) was very poorly advised or he would not have said what he said,” Ana Lydia Porrata-Doria, 69, who voted for Romney, told Reuters.


Puerto Ricans, who recognize both English and Spanish as their official languages, will vote in November in a statehood referendum.

With Puerto Rico's unemployment rate running at 15.1 percent, many voters said they supported Romney because they believed he was best positioned among the Republican candidates to deliver on pledges about job creation on the island.

Puerto Rico, about 1,200 miles from the U.S. mainland, has about 3.8 million people. Its population can vote in partisan primaries but not in presidential elections. Puerto Ricans within the United States have the same voting rights as other U.S. citizens.



Wild Thing's comment.........

I am glad they voted for Romney. Santorum was absolutely horrible to them and should have known better or perhaps he was just being himself and he is the jerk he comes off as most of the time anyway. LOL Sorry to anyone that likes Santorum, but my gosh he is in no way presidential imo and keeps having to backtrack on things he says so much of the time.

Mitt Romney Has Proven His Support For Our Troops and Veterans ~ Generals Support Romney





General Marks, United States Army....
“General Marks said, "Governor Romney has been outspoken in his commitment to our men and women in the military. Our troops need more support from Washington and Governor Romney will ensure that they have the resources they need to defend this country. I am proud to be joining Governor Romney's campaign. On national security issues, the Governor has distinguished himself as a true leader ready to invest in our national defense." ”

"Major General James Marks Retired From Active Duty In October 2004 After More Than 30 Years Of Service To Our Country. A graduate of the United States Military Academy, General Marks has more than three decades of experience in the Intelligence field. During his career, he held command and staff assignments from infantry platoon leader and infantry company commander in the 101st Airborne Division to senior intelligence officer for the Coalition Land Forces during combat operations in Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He concluded his career as the Commanding General of the United States Army Intelligence Center and Fort Huachuca, Arizona. Currently, he resides in Virginia and is the President and CEO of Global Linguist Solutions, Falls Church, Virginia. He is a contributor to the BBC and was also a military analyst for CNN.

"His awards and decorations include: the Distinguished Service Medal, the Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit with one Oak Leaf Cluster, Bronze Star, Defense Meritorious Service Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal with four Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Commendation Medal, the Army Achievement Medal with one Oak Leaf Cluster, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary and Service Medals, the Korean Defense Service Medal, and the NATO Medal."


.

“Brigadier General Mikolajcik said, "Governor Romney's record on veterans' issues is very strong. He firmly believes that the commitment to our troops doesn't end when their service is finished and that we must take care of those who have sacrificed to protect us. I look forward to telling my fellow veterans in South Carolina of his plans to keep America secure." ”


"Brigadier General Thomas R. Mikolajcik Is An Air Force Academy Graduate With 27 Years Of Military Service. General Mikolajcik served in the Air Force as a pilot, staff officer and held numerous command positions. He retired in 1996 as United States Air Force Director of Transportation and is a consultant in logistics and transportation. The General is an adviser to the Metro Chambers Military Relations Policy Council and was awarded the South Carolina Order of the Palmetto in 1994."

"Lieutenant General Claudius "Bud" Elmer Watts III Served As Comptroller Of The U.S. Air Force And President Of The Citadel. General Watts' Air Force career spanned 31 years during which he served in numerous flying positions, amassing more than 7,000 flying hours and commanding various units up to wing level. He also held numerous staff positions, culminating as Comptroller of the United States Air Force in 1986. General Watts was named the 17th President of The Citadel in 1989 and served in that position until his retirement in 1996."

“Romney best suited for commander-in-chief...

“Gov. Romney is the only candidate to offer a detailed plan to restore our military and provide the weapons and equipment our troops need to win wars decisively and come home safely. He will reverse President Obama’s dramatic defense cuts and increase our naval shipbuilding rate. Rather than reducing the defense budget, he will reduce the duplication of efforts and apply those savings to strengthening our military posture. And he will restore as a top priority the deployment of a multilayered national ballistic-missile defense system.”

“Mitt Romney has been a strong advocate for veterans and will work to ensure that those who have heroically sacrificed for our country receive the care that they deserve,” said Lt. General Bud Watts, former President of the Citadel. “We need a Commander-in-Chief who will support our veterans and troops, strengthen our military, and strengthen our national defense. Mitt Romney believes in America and in the founding principles that make our country great, and he is the kind of steadfast leader we need during these challenging times.”

Mitt Romney on ............MILITARY AND VETRANS BENEFITS:

“In February 2005, Romney filed legislation to increase benefits for Massachusetts National Guard members. Working with the state legislature, Romney developed the "Welcome Home Bill" which provides guardsman with reduced life-insurance premiums and free tuition and fees at Massachusetts universities and community colleges. The bill also increases daily state active-duty pay rate from $75 to $100, and increases the death benefit paid to families of Guard members killed in the line of duty from $5,000 to $100,000. Additionally, the "Welcome Home Bill" creates a $1,000 bonus for Guardsman and reservists called to active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan since the September 11, 2001 attacks and a $500 bonus for those who were activated for duty elsewhere. The legislation provides a $2,000 benefit for Gold Star spouses and increases the Gold Star parents' benefit from $1,500 to $2,000.

“High school diplomas will also be granted to veterans who dropped out to enlist in World War II, Korea or Vietnam wars. Romney signed the bill into law on Veterans Day 2005.

“In a November 3, 2006 press release, Romney stated that the account that funds the insurance benefits created in the "Welcome Home Bill" faced a deficit of $64,000. The Massachusetts legislature was out of session at the time of the shortfall. According to the press release, Romney transferred money from the governor's office budget to cover the deficit.

“Working with the legislature, Romney developed legislation to provide tax exemptions to disabled veterans and benefits to families of fallen and missing soldiers. Romney signed the Massachusetts Military Enhanced Relief Individual Tax (MERIT) Plan into law on August 14, 2006. The bill increases property tax exemptions for disabled veterans and grants spouses of veterans killed or missing in action since September 11, 2001 full property tax exemptions for five years. After five years the spouses receive an annual $2,500 exemption under the legislation.

“Romney was also the first governor in Massachusetts history to appoint a secretary of veteran's affairs to his cabinet.

“Romney's efforts to assist Massachusetts servicemen were recognized by the Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve, which presented him with the Pro Patria Award and the 2006 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.



The Best Ally of Peace is a Strong America - Funny home videos are a click away


Mitt Romney: Grow military spending, build new ships, planes - Oct 6, 2011


“HILLSDALE, Mich. - In a speech to Hillsdale College graduates yesterday about confronting a world filled with evil, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said America should combat radical Islam by bulking up its military.

“ "There is no safe place if evil is unrestrained," the former Massachusetts governor said during his address at the campus 80 miles northwest of Toledo.

“ "The weak may hide, but they become weaker still, until at last they are discovered and easily conquered. History teaches us this: The best ally of peace is a strong America."

“Mr. Romney proposed adding 100,000 troops and keeping defense spending at 4 percent or more of America's gross domestic product, a remark that garnered applause from the families and friends of Hillsdale's 306 listed graduates. With $580 billion projected to cover the U.S. military and Iraq war this year, defense spending already is above the 4 percent mark.”

Charles Krauthammer:" I actually like Romney, I think he's a very good man and he would make a great president."







Charles Krauthammer critiques the 2012 candidates in interview with O'Reilly. Bill starts out questioning Charles by saying, "you're not a big fan of Romney, am I wrong?" Charles says, "you're wrong, I actually like Romney, I think he's a very good man and he would make a great president." Bill replies, you're a conservative, why would you not support Santorum over Romney?" Krauthammer brings up the 'Buckley rule' and says, "In my analysis, Santorum has no chance of winning the White House and general election"


Wild Thing's comment.......

O'Reilly is such a jerk so much of the time. He likes to tell people what they are thinking just as he tried to do with Charles. I am glad Charles corrected him.

Andrew Breitbart Patriot Warrior Dead at 43 ~ Shock To All That Love Him and America




An emotional Jonah Goldberg, a close friend of Breitbart’s, joined America’s Newsroom to react to the loss. He explained that they’d known each other for a dozen years from when they were among the first people developing conservative web c...ontent. Goldberg said, “He was one of the most fearless people I ever knew. It’s hard news to take.”

“He truly loved the fight … One of his favorite pastimes was to retweet all of the hate that people threw at him because he considered it a badge of honor.”


.

FOX News


Widely read conservative Internet publisher Andrew Breitbart, whose flare for battle with politicians and the mainstream media earned him a reputation as one of the nation's most influential commentators, died Thursday.

The websites he founded ran a statement Thursday morning announcing that Breitbart, 43, died "unexpectedly from natural causes" in Los Angeles shortly after midnight. His attorney and editor-in-chief of those sites confirmed his death to Fox News.

"We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior," the statement said. "Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love."


The statement on his sites quoted the concluding passage from his book, Righteous Indignation.

"I love my job. I love fighting for what I believe in. I love having fun while doing it. I love reporting stories that the Complex refuses to report. I love fighting back, I love finding allies, and -- famously -- I enjoy making enemies. Three years ago, I was mostly a behind-the-scenes guy who linked to stuff on a very popular website. I always wondered what it would be like to enter the public realm to fight for what I believe in. I've lost friends, perhaps dozens. But I've gained hundreds, thousands -- who knows? -- of allies. At the end of the day, I can look at myself in the mirror, and I sleep very well at night," Breitbart wrote.


The statement ended: "Andrew is at rest, yet the happy warrior lives on, in each of us."


Breitbart was walking near his house in the Brentwood neighborhood shortly after midnight Thursday when he collapsed, his father-in-law Orson Bean said.


Someone saw him fall and called paramedics, who tried to revive him. They rushed him to the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center, Bean said. Breitbart had suffered heart problems a year earlier, but Bean said he could not pinpoint what happened.


"I don't know what to say. It's devastating," Bean told The Associated Press.

Those who knew and worked with him described Breitbart almost uniformly as "fearless," sharply intelligent, witty and devoted to his work.

"He was the modern conservative iteration of a 1960's radical," conservative commentator Jonah Goldberg told Fox News, minutes after Breitbart's death was reported.

"When I say he was the most fearless guy I ever knew, it really is true. I mean, he truly loved the fight," he said.

Breitbart considered his charge to expose corruption, hypocrisy and media bias, and leveraged his network of websites to reach for that goal.

He was on the forefront of reporting several controversies, notably the salacious tweets former Rep. Anthony Weiner had sent to young women before his resignation.

Breitbart became embroiled in a controversy of his own, though, for his reporting on a web video of Agriculture Department employee Shirley Sherrod. The edited video appeared to show Sherrod making a racist comment, but the full tape later put the remark in context and made clear that Sherrod was actually talking about bridging racial differences. Sherrod was fired after the edited video surfaced, and later filed suit against Breitbart.

Breitbart, though, went on to report on one of the biggest congressional scandals of 2011 -- the tweets sent by Weiner to young women he met online. The former New York congressman, who is married, adamantly denied the reports at first, before admitting to them in a tearful press conference and resigning.

One of Breitbart's most memorable moments came when he commandeered the podium before Weiner's final New York conference, holding court with reporters and demanding an apology from Weiner -- while Weiner waited to attend his own press conference.

Goldberg recalled how one of Breitbart's favorite pastimes was to retweet the nasty things other people said about him. "He considered it a badge of honor," Goldberg said.

Breitbart's final tweet, posted shortly before he was reported to have died, typified the combative and blunt tone he took with his online debaters. "I called you a putz cause I thought you were being intentionally disingenuous. If not I apologize," he wrote to the individual he had been arguing with.

News of Breitbart's death reverberated on Capitol Hill and on the presidential campaign trail. Rick Santorum said he was "crestfallen."

"What a powerful force," Santorum said. "What a huge loss, in my opinion, for our country and certainly for the conservative movement."

Breitbart is survived by his wife Susannah Bean Breitbart, 41, and four children.

RINO Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe Won’t Seek Reelection



Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe Won’t Seek Reelection

Three-term Senator Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine) issued the following statement today with regard to her re-election campaign:

“After an extraordinary amount of reflection and consideration, I am announcing today that I will not be a candidate for re-election to the United States Senate.

“After 33 years in the Congress this was not an easy decision. My husband and I are in good health. We have laid an exceptionally strong foundation for the campaign, and I have no doubt I would have won re-election. It has been an indescribable honor and immeasurable privilege to serve the people of Maine, first in both houses of Maine’s legislature and later in both houses of Congress. To this day, I remain deeply passionate about public service, and I cherish the opportunity I have been given for nearly four decades to help improve the lives of my fellow Mainers.

“As I have long said, what motivates me is producing results for those who have entrusted me to be their voice and their champion, and I am filled with that same sense of responsibility today as I was on my first day in the Maine House of Representatives. I do find it frustrating, however, that an atmosphere of polarization and ‘my way or the highway’ ideologies has become pervasive in campaigns and in our governing institutions.

“With my Spartan ancestry I am a fighter at heart; and I am well prepared for the electoral battle, so that is not the issue. However, what I have had to consider is how productive an additional term would be. Unfortunately, I do not realistically expect the partisanship of recent years in the Senate to change over the short term. So at this stage of my tenure in public service, I have concluded that I am not prepared to commit myself to an additional six years in the Senate, which is what a fourth term would entail.

“As I enter a new chapter, I see a vital need for the political center in order for our democracy to flourish and to find solutions that unite rather than divide us. It is time for change in the way we govern, and I believe there are unique opportunities to build support for that change from outside the United States Senate. I intend to help give voice to my fellow citizens who believe, as I do, that we must return to an era of civility in government driven by a common purpose to fulfill the promise that is unique to America.

“In the meantime, as I complete my third term, I look forward to continuing to fight for the people of Maine and the future of our nation. And I will be forever and unyieldingly grateful for the trust that the people of Maine have placed in me, and for the phenomenal friendship and assistance I have received over the years from my colleagues, my supporters, and my staff, both in Maine and in Washington.” Senator Snowe will be scheduling a news conference in Portland, Maine, in order to further discuss her decision when she returns to her home state on Friday.

Mitt Romney's Search For Melissa ~ A Must Read If You Are A Voter



Mitt’s Search For Melissa

Editor's Note: This is an update to the story we originally ran last year about Mitt Romney's involvement in the search for 14-year old Melissa Gay, the daughter of his colleague, Robert Gay.

An Excerpt from “Romney to the Rescue,” by Ronald Kessler (NewsMax Magazine)


Mitt Romney was faced with a crisis in July 1996. The 14-year-old daughter of Robert Gay, a partner in Romney’s new venture capital firm, Bain Capital, had disappeared. As it turned out, she had attended a rave party in New York City and had become high on ecstasy. Three days later, her distraught father had no idea where she was.

Romney took immediate action. He closed down the entire firm and asked all 30 partners and employees to fly to New York to try to find Gay’s daughter.

Romney set up a command center in a conference room at the LaGuardia Marriott just outside Manhattan. He hired a private detective firm to assist with the search and established a toll-free number for tips, coordinating the effort with the New York City Police Department, but he still wasn’t satisfied. He raced through his Rolodex and called everyone Bain did business with in New York. He asked them to help his company find their friend’s missing daughter.

The company’s accounting firm, Price-Waterhouse Cooper, and its law firm, put up posters on street poles with a photo of the missing teenager. Cashiers at Duane Reade Pharmacies, which was owned by Bain Capital, put fliers in the bag of each shopper.

Romney and others from the Bain Capital posse trudged through every part of New York, even scouring Central Park, and talked with everyone they could – prostitutes, drug addicts – anyone who may have seen her. They also made rounds at the local nightclubs at 3 a.m., hoping someone somewhere could identify her.

The same day the Romney team came to New York, the hunt made the evening news. Television cameras showed photos of the girl and video of investment banker types prowling through Central Park.

The next day, a teenage boy she was with phoned in. He asked if there was a reward. But the boy got nervous and quickly hung up. Luckily, the police traced the call to a home in Montville Township, N.J.

Gay’s daughter, when they found her in the basement of that home, was shivering through detox after a massive dose of ecstasy. Doctors later told Gay that he was indeed fortunate – his daughter probably would not have lasted another day.

“It was the most amazing thing, and I’ll never forget this to the day I die,” Gay says, adding of Romney’s intervention, “I’m not sure we would have gotten her back without him.”

It is often during a crisis that we gain insight into a person’s real character. Romney’s action demonstrated leadership, loyalty, and selflessness – attributes that Americans just might like to see in a president of the United States.

More from newsmax.....

People say that Mitt Romney lights up a room. But there are all kinds of ways to light up a room - fluorescent, neon, sunlight, strobe. Romney alternates between sparkle and a warm, steady glow. He is not in your face. He is low-key, self-assured, and self-contained, with a sunny, positive disposition. On his desk he has a desk plate that states "America Is Never Stuck."

Sounding like a television character from the 1950s, he is not self-conscious about saying "gosh" or "my goodness."

Wild Thing's comment........

This stroy impressed me about Romney and I thought you might like to read it as well. The way he handled the situation about the man's daughter speaks volumes about Romney's character.

Good For Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval




CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Don't mistake Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval's invitations to the Republican presidential contenders as anything more than a hospitable gesture. The governor is staying out of the nomination fight despite his rising stature in the GOP – or perhaps because of it.

Sandoval has invited the candidates to his office this week as they campaign ahead of Saturday's caucuses. If they make the trip to Carson City, the four – Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum – can count on a smile and a firm handshake but no public stamp of approval.

"There isn't a candidate that wouldn't love to have his support, that's for sure," said Bob List, state Republican committeeman and a former Nevada governor who endorsed Ronald Reagan in 1980.

Sandoval was quick to endorse Texas Gov. Rick Perry in this year's presidential race, only to see him drop out last month after dismal showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Now, Sandoval is pledging his "full support" to whomever wins the party nomination. And he has recorded an automated phone message urging Nevada Republicans to vote in the caucuses – for any of the candidates.


.


Wild Thing's comment........

Gov. Sandoval had endorsed Rick Perry for President back in September. He has chosen not to endorse anyone that is left in the campaign. Good for himl, Our Gov. Rick Scott did no tendorse anyone either and I was glad. Gov. Scott is friends with Perry so I iimagine after Perry got out of the race Gov. Scott probably thought it better not to endorse anyone. Maybe the same thing with Nevada Gov. Sandoval.

Rep. Allen West - "Obama, Reid, Pelosi, get the hell out of the USA" ~ Applause for West!




"I will not stand back and watch anyone defame, degrade or destroy that which my father fought for." Allen West at the Lincoln Day Dinner in West Palm Beach for the Palm Beach County GOP blasts the liberal left. This is just awesome.


We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain't on the table," West said.

"Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America"

Awesome Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) Delivered the Republican Weekly Address



Here’s the transcript:

“Hello, I’m Marco Rubio, a Senator from Florida. Right now all eyes are focused on my home state ahead of next week’s Republican presidential primary. It’s an exciting contest and I know that passions are high. So I wanted to take a moment to explain to the rest of the country why Republicans in Florida are so excited about this primary: Because we believe our country is in big trouble.

“As you know, earlier this week, President Obama delivered his fourth annual address to Congress. It was an opportunity for the President to talk about his accomplishments over the last three years and to lay out his plans for the year ahead.

“And he missed on both counts.

“You didn’t hear much talk about the success of his Administration—and that’s because there isn’t much.

“Yes, this President inherited a significant national debt, but over the last three years he’s made it worse. Our national debt has grown by nearly 50 percent since he took over, and now, for the first time since World War II, our national debt is larger than our country’s economy.

“Yes, this President inherited an economy where unemployment was too high, but over the last three years he’s made it worse. Today our unemployment rate is higher than the day he took office. In fact, since he took over, it’s been stuck over 8 percent every single month.

“This President didn’t talk about his record for one simple reason; he doesn’t want you to know about it. But you do know about it, because you feel the failure of his leadership every single day of your life.

“The bottom line is this President inherited a country with serious problems. He asked the Congress to give him the stimulus and Obamacare to fix it. The Democrats in Congress gave it to him. And not only did it not work, it made everything worse.

“President Obama has a year left in the White House. So what are his plans now to make things better? What does he plan to do now, that he didn’t do before? Well we got our answer Tuesday night. He plans to divide us against each other. To pit Americans against other Americans in the hopes of generating enough votes to get re-elected.

“He tells Americans worried about their jobs that the way to help them is to raise their bosses’ taxes.

“He tells those who are hurting that the only way they can be better off, is for others to be worse off.

“He tells all of us that the only way for some of us to climb up the economic ladder is for others to be pulled down.

“This divisive rhetoric, this effort to gain political support by convincing some that they will be better off if we punish others, this stuff has never worked anywhere it’s been tried.

“People end up fleeing countries who adopt economic policies based on these flawed principles. And more often than not, they come here.

“They come here because this is not who we are.

“Americans have always believed that all of us can succeed.

“That those who have made it fairly, can stay there. And those who are trying to make it will have a real chance to join them.

“This is what has made us different. This is what has made us prosperous. This is what makes us exceptional.

“And now, for the first time in my adult life, we have a President who’s asking us to abandon our economic heritage.

“To become like the countries people come here to get away from.

“To become like everybody else.

“Yes, people are hurting. Yes, there is a growing gap between the rich and the poor.

“But the way to solve it is not to embrace the ‘trickle up poverty’ economics of other nations.

“The way to solve it is to embrace the American Free Enterprise system.

“No economic system is perfect. But the American Free Enterprise system has empowered millions of people in the past. I know, because I saw it with my own eyes.

“My father was a bartender. And I thank God every night that there was someone willing to risk their money to build a hotel on Miami Beach and later in Las Vegas where he could work.

“I thank God that there was enough prosperity in America so people could go on vacation to Miami or Las Vegas. Where people felt prosperous enough to have weddings or Bar Mitzvahs and, by the way, could leave tips in my Dad’s little tip jar. Because with that money he raised us. And he gave me the opportunity to do things he never had a chance to do.

“Now, we had help along the way. I had student loans and grants from the government to help me get my education. And I went to our public school system.

“That’s an important role for government to play. And so I also thank God that we had an economy prosperous enough to afford to pay for these things as well.

“So, I’ll just close by saying, I hope this year will be the beginning of our work towards a new and prosperous American century.

“Because I know that this idea of a nation where anyone from anywhere can accomplish anything, it’s not just something I read about in history books. I’ve seen it in my own life. And there’s no reason why we cannot continue it here, if only we do the right things.

“May God bless all of you, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.”

Gov. Mitch Daniels Delivers GOP Response to Obama’s “State of the Union” Address ( video )







Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels delivering the GOP response to President Obama’s “State of the Union” address tonight. Daniels tore down Obama’s economic house of cards, making it clear that the State of the Union is “grave,” and saying President Obama “has to know in his heart.” He focused on the massive debt and lack of jobs that have characterized the Obama Presidency, and said America has a small window of time to turn things around, but that it can’t be done with the current course being set by Barack Obama.

Marco Rubio Responds to The President's State Of The Union Address on Hannity







Rubio Responds to The President's State Of The Union Address on Hannity




.


Earlier yesterday Newt was attacking Ronney because he hired some of the Charlie Crist people to work for him in Florida. So because Marco Rubio knows first hand about how awful Charlie Crist was for Florida he spoke out about his opinion about Romney.

Marco Rubio: Mitt Romney is no Charlie Crist

Newt Gingrich's decision today to bash Mitt Romney for hiring former Charlie Crist loyalists and employees doesn't seem to be sitting well with Sen. Marco Rubio, who drove Crist out of the Republican Party before beating him at the polls in 2010.

Said Rubio: "Mitt Romney is no Charlie Crist. Romney he was one of the first national Republican leaders to endorse me. He came to Florida, campaigned hard for me, and made a real difference in my race."


.

Wild Thing's comment........

Marco is always good and I thank God that he is our guy here in Florida. I pray for him that he can stay strong he has done so great so far. Regarding his comment about Romney and being upset by what Newt said, I can't blame him for that. He is just respecting Romney because of what he stated that Romney was the first to endorse him.

Allen West Says Harry Reid: “He Stands for Fiscal Insanity





“We saw Senator Harry Reid talk about people being obstructionists. We saw him blame the tea party, we saw him blame senate Republicans. Hes even blamed House Freshman on the Republican side.

But what Harry Reid does not understand simply, the constitutional conservative grassroots movement called the Tea Party stands for this, they stand for fiscal responsibility, they stand for fiscal sanity. And the American people have to balance budgets in their homes. Our small business owners have to balance budgets to run their businesses. So obviously what Harry Reid calls obstructionism. I look at it, he stands for fiscal irresponsibilty. He stands for fiscal insanity!”

The Meeting That Won't Change The World ~ Important Read About Electoin!!




THE MEETING THAT WON’T CHANGE THE WORLD

To The Point news

by Dr. Jack Wheeler (The Wall Street Journal called Wheeler "the originator of the Reagan Doctrine". The Washington Post called him "The Indiana Jones of the Right")

At least it was cordial.

But the 150 or so "movement conservatives" gathered at Paul Pressler's this weekend (1/13-14) were a fractured lot.

Maybe 10% were for Perry. Almost all of them were against Romney. Well, sort of. Caveat below.

There was an official Romney guy there who explained that "You'll either work with us now or work with us later, but you'll all have to get on Mitt's train, because we have the money and the organization, so there's no stopping us."

This did not go over well. It just made everyone more determined than ever to do whatever it takes to stop Mittens. How to do so is what the group could not agree on.

I'm not going to name names, as I was asked not to. Just about every big name conservative you've heard of was there. A number of them didn't come out for any particular candidate. Others said they were all in for Perry at the start, and just couldn't overcome his blunders.

When the case was made that Perry was the only candidate who actually understood the Constitution and the power of the 10th Amendment, the only one who was not a big government guy, the most successful governor in the country who has a rock solid record of job creation and conservative judicial appointments - they just didn't care. I want that to sink in.

These conservative leaders really do not care about jobs, people hurting like the Great Depression, America's economy falling into an abyss. All they care about is "the family as the fabric of society," and other Rick Santorum social conservative platitudes. So a majority of them voted for Santorum. They could care less that Santorum would not do anything to reduce metastasizing government, much less castrate it (like Perry would), or has not the slightest trace of executive experience of any kind, government or private.

When asked one-on-one why they were going for Santorum when they knew he had no money, no organization, and stood not a ghost of a chance to win the nomination, the truth came out:

"If we unify behind Santorum, it will force Romney to pick him as his running mate - for he'll know that's the only way to get our support in the general (election in November)."

That's the slimy deal behind this. They'll go for Romney if he goes for Santorum on his ticket. Should we call them Judas Conservatives?

We suspected this all along: Santorum is a stalking horse for Romney. A vote for Santorum is a vote for Romney. Folks in South Carolina need to know this.

The cynical ploy, however, will not work - and not just because the Romney guy rolled his eyes when told about it (Romney has his heart set on Marco Rubio). It's because there was no unity at this meeting.

The Drudge headline "Social conservatives back Santorum," is a lie. A majority of the folks there chose Santorum - but there was no agreement that everyone would now get behind their choice. Some will continue backing Perry. A much larger number are now committed to Gingrich as the Not Romney. Others are going to focus on doing whatever they can to see no candidate gets a majority of delegates for a brokered convention.

A brokered convention, by the way, is how Sarah Palin could get the nomination. Or Rick Perry.

So there you have it.

This was a meeting that won't change the world, that won't change anything, except to marginalize these "movement" conservative leaders who really don't care about the fate of America.

They say Perry blew his chance. They have blown theirs.




Wild Thing's comment........

Perry is the only candidate that has current experience in creating an environment for job growth in a bad economy and plans to do so. * Cut, Balance, and Grow • Energizing American Jobs & Security.Supports a flat tax, a balanced budget, job creation, domestic energy, a secure border and get America working again, He is a conservative of conviction, not of convenience. Has signed 6 balanced budget during his term as governor and the only one to do so since WW11.

Republican House Freshmen: ‘Harry Reid Is Holding The Jobs Agenda Hostage, It’s Time To Grow Up’







During a speech urging the Senate to pass a year long extension of the pay roll tax cut, Freshman Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), said that Harry Reid (D-NV) is holding the Jobs Agenda hostage and that it’s time to grow up, be adults and to get ‘this’ done.


Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and several of his freshman colleagues (Reps. West, Lankford, Gardner, Womack, Nugent, Farenthold, Reed, Buerkle and Heck) called on the Senate to pass a full year extension of the payroll tax cuts.


Wild Thing's comment......

Thank you GOP freshmen!!! If Harry Reid had one ounce of respect even for himself he should be ashamed of what he has been doing. But that would mean he was not Harry Reid. Why on earth they keep voting him in is beyond me.

Limbaugh Letting Newt Know How Wrong Newt Was To Say.." the era of Reagan is over"





Back in March 2009... Newt Gingrich had put down Ronald Reagan saying" the era of Reagan is over"...... and when Rush Limbaugh spoke at CPAC he had some things to say about Newt! God bless Rush Limbaugh and the hell with Newt Gingrich!!!


Wild Thing's comment......

Newt may know history, but he has more history of his own that will bite him back with his campaign. Foro such a smart man he sure says and does a lot of stupid things. Things no one forces him to say or do.

It might even be Newt's ego the size of a blimp that will be his worst enemy.

LTC Rep.Allen West: Illegal Immigration Could Be Considered An “Invasion”…




I think that illegal immigration – the operative word is ‘illegal’. It also says here in Article 1 Section 8 [reading from Constitution] that you have to repel invasions. I think that anytime someone is coming across your border and they haven’t been invited, that can be considered what the founding fathers wrote as an invasion into your country.



Wild Thing's comment........


I listened carefully and I heard West say like Perry does, that the fence cannot be done the entire way, it has to be broken up with other things. I agree so much. I love Perry's plan for the border fence and securing our border and it would be done now if Obama had done as Perry kept asking to be done.

Thank you LTC Allen West and I hope one day you run for President. But for sure stay in politics we need you and your sound conservative thinking.

Allen West Weighs in on the Waterboarding Debate




Wild Thing's comment.......

Of course the limp wristed Obamam said he was against it.

LTC Allen West knows what he is talking about, thank you.

For those that missed the debate Saturday night. The candidates were asked about waterboarding. So on Sunday Obama was asked about their replies and he said he was agaisnt it.

Thank God for Allen West and for Rick Perry!

This was Rick Perry's reply at the debate .


..."Where there are people who would kill them (American soldiers) in a heartbeat, under any circumstances and use any technique that they can… For us not to have the ability to try to extract information from them, to save our young people’s lives, is a travesty. This is war! That’s what happens in war! And I am for using the techniques, not toruture, but using those techniques that we know will extract the information to save young American lives and I will be for it until I die.

Liz Cheney: Talk About The Issues People Care About







Wild Thing's comment........


Bob Schieffer is a jerk. He was doing his whole show about the Cain bimbogate whatever it is called and also about the video of Rick Perry where the media took clips from an long speech he made for a dinner of donors where he was applauded big time and made to look like he was drunk or something. Which was untrue.

So Liz had enough of the direction of the show and let Schieffer have it. Yippee!!!


Thank you Liz Chaney. I LOVE how she responds. Right before she replies she was asked how she felt about the video that has been debunked about Rick Perry where some freak has put together clips mind you from a long speech Perry made and GOT STANDING APPLAUSE FOR. The left media and others are trying to make people think Perry was drunk or on pain pills for his back. More slander of Rick Perry that is NOT true.

Wake Up America - Jon McNaughton



Wake Up America - by artist Jon McNaughton


We are enslaved to our debt. Wake up, America! Before it is too late...

Every man, woman and child in America is enslaved to the national debt. As an artist, I have painted my vision of the dire circumstances that surround us. Now, more than ever, each American must make a choice: we must unlock the shackles that enslave us, or will we lose our freedom. It is my hope and prayer that America will "wake up" before it is too late.

Those who are familiar with my work know that I like to use symbolism and metaphor to engage the viewer. See if you can find and decipher the many symbols in this image by visiting

http://www.jonmcnaughton.com


In the painting I have intentionally hidden six keys that represent solutions that will release us from the chains of economic and political bondage. Find these keys and share them with as many Americans as you can. If we don't "wake up" future generations may not know what it means to be free.

-Jon McNaughton, political artist

Reporters Put Romney on the Couch..."Anderson Anderson" LOL



Reporters Put Romney on the Couch


The Atlantic Wire


Conservative voters don't like Mitt Romney because he seems insufficiently committed to their ideals, but reporters like that he offers them an opportunity to play psychologist. Bow-tie-wearing conservative columnist George Will is so outraged that Romney is a "recidivist reviser of his principles" that he's moved to write in all caps in his next column. But what really gets under non-movement journalists's skin is how lame the candidate is, and periodically a psychoanalytical profile of the former Massachusetts governor is written to explain why he can't inspire passion from anyone.

The New York Times' Ashley Parker writes Friday that Romney's problem is that he likes rules too much. While some pundits cheered Romney's rare aggressive moments this year -- shouting down an angry voter, making fun of Rick Perry at the debate -- Parker says those moments reveal Romney's "inner gendarme." When Perry interrupted Romney's 30-second response at the most recent debate, Romney appealed to the CNN debate moderator, Anderson Cooper. Parker confides, "it has become something of a running joke among the traveling press corps to call out 'Anderson? Anderson?' when things go awry." Other examples of Romney's dorky love of rules: when his campaign says no reporter questions at an event, he won't take reporter questions. And he and his wife were observant Mormon teenagers, they never shared a bed when they went to a lakehouse together. "Secretly bunking up, of course, would have been breaking the rules," Parker concludes.



Newsweek's Andrew Romano says Romney's great on paper, but when "real human beings aren't kept at a respectful distance," Romney doesn't shine. He sets this scene at the Iowa state fair in which Romney is munching on a pork-chop-on-a-stick the whole time, transcribing a long and excruciating bit of small talk with a voter. ("[Romney] took a bite, and then, still chewing, struck up a conversation with the nearest retiree, if 'conversation' is the right word for what Romney does with voters, which usually involves repeating whatever they say to him immediately after they say it. ... 'That’s the best thing at the fair," the retiree said ... 'Is that the best thing at the fair?' Romney repled."). Given that all small talk is unbearable and embarrassing and looks stupid when transcribed, this isn't quite fair. But Romano goes on to diagnose Romney's problem -- he's "not very good at winning votes" -- as a symptom of his lame personality and inability to be like his dad. He talks to social science researchers who say Romney's too introverted and conscientious to be liked by voters. Romano say it's a "cliché" that Romney seems like a clone of his dad. George Romney headed American Motor Company before being twice elected governor of Michigan in the 1960s; he ran for president, lost, and was appointed secretary of Housing and Urban Development. "There is one detail, however, that no one ever bothers to mention: personality-wise, George and Mitt didn’t have all that much in common," Romano writes. (Actually, a lot of people mention this.)


The contrast between father and son couldn’t be clearer. George barreled impulsively ahead, confident that he could convince anyone of anything because he’d always convinced them before; Mitt, on the other hand, behaves like a man who was born on third base but worries that he’s about to make a mistake that will send him back to second. ... “George was a Horatio Alger figure,” says Walter DeVries, who oversaw the elder Romney’s campaigns and served as a close adviser in Lansing. “He turned those blue eyes on you and you did what he wanted. Mitt is different. He’s been given the world, and he seems afraid of losing it.”


Politico's Ben Smith, too, says Romney's operating in "George Romney's shadow," Smith reports. Smith points to a New York Times' profile from 2007 that argues the candidate's problem is that he wants to be like his risk-taking dad but he's really more like his cautious mom. Smith spoke to the elder Romney's former aides, who said "George was much more willing to take risks than Mitt seems to be." George was "brash," "gutsy," while Mitt isn't "the kind of person who takes a lot of chances," but instead is "gun shy." And why is he gun shy? Because George's presidential chances were destroyed when he said he'd been brainwashed on the Vietnam war in 1968. The lesson both Romano and Smith draw is that while the elder Romney was a gifted politician who didn't become president because of one off-the-cuff remark, Romney is a terrible politician because he's afraid to say anything off the cuff. But George Romney won only one more election than Mitt Romney has so far.

Report: ‘Romneycare’ a jobs killer Study finds Bay State lost thousands of jobs




Report: ‘Romneycare’ a jobs killer Study finds Bay State lost thousands of jobs


Boston Herald

The Bay State’s controversial 2006 universal health-care plan — also known as “Romneycare” — has cost Massachusetts more than 18,000 jobs, according to an exclusive blockbuster study that could provide ammo to GOP rivals of former Gov. Mitt Romney as he touts his job-creating chops on the campaign trail.

“Mandating health insurance coverage and expanding the demand for health services without increasing supply drove up costs. Economics 101 tells us that,” said Paul Bachman, research director at Suffolk University’s Beacon Hill Institute, the conservative think tank that conducted the study. The Herald obtained an exclusive copy of the findings.

“The ‘shared sacrifice’ needed to provide universal health care includes a net loss of jobs, which is attributable to the higher costs that the measure imposed,” said David Tuerck, the institute’s executive director.




Wild Thing's comment......

And yet the GOP wants this guy?? sheesh! And unless people wake up and really start to support Rick Perry and see that he is light years better then Romney then we will end up with Romney for sure.

Why 'Occupy Wall Street' Is No Tea Party Movement



Why 'Occupy Wall Street' Is No Tea Party Movement


The FOX Nation

I'm a Tea Party Activist and 'Occupy Wall Street' Is No Tea Party

By Deneen Borelli


In a recent Washington Post article, Occupy Wall Street protestors were called a diverse group with “no single leader and no organized agenda.

Just like the tea party movement.

Organizers are “drawing inspiration from the Arab Spring” and “hope the New York protests can plant the seeds of a permanent national movement.”

Just like Tea Party, activists draw inspiration from America’s Founding Fathers and fostered a national movement.

Wall Street protesters heeded the call from a web site called Adbusters just like tea party rallies sprung up after CNBC editor Rick Santelli called for action during a live report in February of 2009.

Wall Street’s occupiers want job creation and sometimes dress like zombies. Tea partiers want job creation and sometimes dress like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

If only the Tea Party could get such dispassionate and objective coverage.

One aspect of the Occupy Wall Street and other leftist activism that is a definitive divergence with the tea party movement is disruptive behavior.


On October 1, over 700 Occupy Wall Street protesters were arrested — mostly for disorderly conduct — during a march across the Brooklyn Bridge. Despite two other peaceful marches across the bridge by other groups earlier that day, the Occupy Wall Street crowd couldn’t resist blocking traffic and scuffling with police.

When not under arrest (approximately 100 other arrests occurred over the weeks of the protest), the Occupy Wall Street crowd is actually occupying the privately-owned Zuccotti Park, whose owners are working with city officials on plans to return it “to its intended purpose.”

This rowdy attitude of the radical left is something that, by mistake or design, is grossly unreported in the media. As the Tea Party must fend off allegations of being violent and racist, leftist protests that are unruly don’t get similar coverage.

I’ve been active in the Tea Party movement since 2009. As a black woman, I define the movement’s political diversity and have always been quick to defend its inclusiveness against those who would try to slur it with racist accusations.

Allen West to Samuel Jackson: Stick to Movies, Not Politics, After Racist Jab at Tea Party



Jackson took a swipe at the tea party saying their opposition to the President pretty much comes down to race. West responds on Fox News

Actor Samuel L. Jackson echoed fellow film star Morgan Freeman in calling the tea party racist this week. Florida GOP Rep. Allen West, a card-carrying member of the tea party who is black, took issue with the comments.

“I think Samuel Jackson needs to pay more attention to the upcoming release of the movie ‘Avengers’ next summer and not [get] concerned with the politics and policies of the failed administration,” West told Fox News Wednesday.

Jackson, discussing the tea party, told New York magazine, “I think everything right now is geared toward getting that guy out of office, whatever that means. It’s not politics. It is not economics. It all boils down to pretty much to race. It is a shame.”

West retorted: “Samuel L. Jackson, I guess, disregards the 16.7 percent unemployment rate in the black community, a 20 percent unemployment rate for black adult males and a 45-46 percent unemployment rate for black teenagers. I think the racism that he is talking about is coming out of the White House and this administration.”



Wild Thing's comment........

Allen West is wonderful!! Thank you to West for speaking up about this. And he is right too. Samuel Jackson and Morgan Freeman are both excellent actors, but they need to get back to acting.

Years ago the major studios would sign a star and the star ( celeb) was never allowed to do anything like we have been seeing. The studios actually were controlling their stars but for a good reason. They knew if some of them spoke out like these men have done and Sean Penn etc. the films they did might not get good attendence and it would hurt the studio as well. Then Independent studios became popular and the whole watching over the stars actions etc. was gone.

2 More Top Aides Flee Michele Bachmann Campaign




2 Top Aides Flee Bachmann Campaign

SFGate


We’ll avoid referencing the Titanic here. Two more top aides fled Republican candidate Michele Bachmann’s campaign team Monday. Pollster Ed Goeas and senior adviser Andy Parrish are the latest to depart, suggesting that Bachmann’s dreams of winning the GOP nomination may be coming to an end. The source of the news was an anonymous adviser.

The two aides join Bachmann’s former campaign manager Ed Rollins, who quit last month. Bachmann has recently been fading in polls and campaign funds.

Bachmann's standing in the race suffered when Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced his candidacy. She fell further in opinion polls after suggesting an unproven link between vaccines and mental retardation while trying to criticize Perry's executive order requiring young girls to get immunized for the human papillomavirus, a sexually spread virus that can cause cervical cancer.




Wild Thing's comment......

I am not surprised to see people leaving her campaign.

She still has never proven who the woman was that she "talked" to that night after the debate. And the interesting thing too is that the ghost woman has never come forward. It is all too obvious it is an all out lie Michele came up with.

She became emotional and obsessive about Perry, even screaching ( which Sarah does too and I can't stand that ) and showed big time she is not suited in dealing with high stress situations like world leaders . She would not be able to speak rationally, calmly and professionally to world leaders.

Herman Cain's Communications Director Resigns

FOX News


Herman Cain's campaign communications director has announced her resignation, Fox News confirms.

Ellen Carmichael, who has spent over a year working for Cain, said that her departure is a personal decision about her career.

"I think my leaving now is a reflection on my earnestness to leave rather than a reflection of the campaign," she said.

"I'm still very fond of him," said Carmichael, adding that there is no tension or disagreement over the departure.

"I'm honored to have worked for someone with such character and decency," said Carmichael.

Following the news of her departure Cain's campaign issued the following statement, "Ms. Carmichael decided to pursue other opportunities. We appreciate her service to the campaign."

Her departure comes just as a recent Fox News poll shows Cain jumping into the top tier of GOP presidential candidates.

Carmichael's assistant Francis Boustany is also leaving, and J.D. Gordon will take over as campaign spokesman.

According to a massive class action lawsuit against Aquila’s board of directors – including Cain – he allegedly steered employees into heavily investing their retirement savings in company stock, while at the same time shifting their business model from straightforward energy generation to risky energy trading – the kind of corporate greed that infamously brought down Enron. In the suit, it claims that Cain and other top officials violated a 37-year-old federal law that requires employers to responsibly manage the retirement programs for their employees. Their pensions and life savings were lost.

Unfortunately or on purpose, "scrubbed from Cain’s official story is his long tenure as a director at a Midwest energy corporation named Aquila that, like the infamous Enron Corporation, recklessly drove into the wild west of energy trading and speculation – and ultimately screwed its employees out of tens of millions of dollars,”

Wild Thing's comment......


This about Cain and Aquila is information that needs to be known, the left sure as heck knows this information and they have already been posting about it. I would even feel better about Cain if he had been honest and put this information at his website, facts and nothing more. But the truth all the same. That bothers me more that what happened and it being like ENRON. Just be honest with us, and no surprises. Why hide it, that is not right.


Perry's life is an open book for all to know about his decisions good or bad and it is left up to us to decide.

Chris Christie and Obama More Alike Than They Appear



The Fat Guy and the Skinny Guy: More Alike Than They Appear


By James V Capua

American Thinker


For all their contrasting looks, Chris Christie and Barack Obama are alike in one critical respect: both are the kind of politician endangered elites offer up when they correctly perceive their power threatened. To preserve their dominance, establishments seek above all to protect the orthodoxies they have enshrined and the trends they have fostered. By doing so, they maintain the interests of those they depend upon critically for support, and they limit the damage that challengers can cause. This stasis is sold by wrapping it artfully in the bright colors and shimmering bows of novelty.

Barack Obama has been a perfect example. He looked different, but his Hope and Change never challenged an elite orthodoxy. For all his wife's assurances that our lives "as usual" were over, Obama presumed to place himself at the front of Democrat-approved social and cultural trends, all the while never challenging one. He dutifully followed the rules of Democrat discourse: he regularly called out "Wall Street" and "special interests," but his friends at Goldman Sachs, the Green lobby, GE, NEA, SEIU, AARP, AFSCME, AFL-CIO, etc. understood the game and knew they had nothing to fear.


Even as he has become unhinged of late, Obama has restricted his petulant flailing to relatively low-risk targets like the leeches of the Congressional Black Caucus, who have to take it because they have nowhere else to go. He and Chu and Geithner and Summers are brilliant -- but Pelosi and Reid were allowed to run the business.


Obama's eloquence, of course, has been celebrated extravagantly -- particularly by a chorus of what the Brits accurately used to call "news readers," who don't even write their own commonplaces and who would not recognize a memorable phrase if it bit them. Nevertheless, the language that counts in the Obama administration has been that of legislators like Frank, Dodd, and Schumer, and regulators like Warren and Lee.


What does all this have to do with the governor of New Jersey? Like the originals, each of the Abama and Christello 2012 team looks very different from the other, but their shtick is the same. The advocates for Christie are selling him in exactly the same way Obama's did, and for exactly the same reason -- Obama did not, and Christie does not, threaten their respective party orthodoxies, and both promise a comfortable working relationship with party elites.


While, like Obama's before 2008, the Christie balloon has been inflating for some time, the excuse for his current prominence was a talk he gave recently at the Reagan Library. While one could take exception to certain assumptions and emphases, there is nothing wrong with this speech. But like with every speech of Obama's, there is also nothing remarkable about it -- not one phrase, not one image that rises above current Republican convention. Unite us rather than divide us; "when there is a problem you fix it"; we are all in this together; demand sacrifice from all; a healthy American economy reinforces our influence abroad; and, of course, "leadership is compromise."


In this year of infinite promise, why is this banal utterance celebrated in Republican circles? It's safe. In his California oration, Christie waddled as fast as he could to get in front of trends conventional Republicans endorse: the contest in 2012 needs to be all about the economy and jobs and efficiency -- just fix the GDP, and Americans' faith in who and what we are will miraculously follow. Christie never threatened to get anywhere near some of those philosophical, regional, or cultural issues that make NRC Republicans uncomfortable, nor did he evidence any sympathy for libertarian notions. On foreign policy, he embraced neither adventurism nor isolation, and he never questioned the wisdom of our decade-long struggle to introduce assorted barbarians to the glories of democracy. No matter how the decidedly non-disinterested observers try to sell it, it was just a generally angry-looking guy saying things we have heard many times before from mainstream Republicans. Though theoretically an homage to Reagan, Christie's speech could have been delivered by John McCain.


Savants will respond that it was really the give-and-take after the formal speech that marked Christie as The Man of Destiny. Clearly he is a better debater than, say, Rick Perry, and less likely to step into hyperbolic traps than, say, Herman Cain or Michele Bachmann.


The contrast with Perry, Cain, and Bachmann is, of course, the real point of all this for mainstream Republicans, and it incorporates a lot more than Christie's debating skills. Whether by luck or design, Christie's perfectly timed speech provided the opening for a last-ditch attempt by a Republican establishment, worried about a faltering Romney, to head off trends they do not like represented by the Tea Party, Jim DeMint, strong alternative conservative and libertarian voices in the New Media, and other unsettling influences on the right.

Indeed, for all of the "Christie hurts Romney more than Perry" conventional wisdom, if Mitt Romney misses his assigned turn, Christie -- with no extravagant notions about gun rights, definite "Islam is a peaceful religion" credentials, etc. -- is clearly positioned to replace him.


.


Five Things Conservative Voters Need To Know About Christie


1. Illegal Immigration

The biggest chink in Rick Perry's armor so far has been his record on illegal immigration — specifically, the legislation he passed as governor to allow illegal immigrants to pay the in-state tuition rate when attending state colleges and universities. It's this policy that has led many Republicans to question whether Perry really gets illegal immigration at all.

But Chris Christie is hardly the ally that illegal-immigration foes are looking for. In 2010, Christie told Politico that America needs to come up with a "clear path to citizenship." He didn't say "for illegal immigrants," but since America already has a clear path to citizenship for legal immigrants, that's what he meant. This is an entirely reasonable and mainstream position, but in much of the GOP, they call it "amnesty."


Christie's opponents could also point to the time he insisted that being in the country illegally is not a crime but an "administrative matter." He's right — simply overstaying your visa, for example, can get you deported but can't land you in jail. But to impassioned illegal-immigration warriors, we're not sure the nuance will be appreciated.

Then there's Christie's record on illegal immigration as a U.S. Attorney in New Jersey, the job he held before he became governor. Back in 2008, Bill Tucker, a producer on Lou Dobbs's now-deceased CNN show, could only find thirteen illegal-immigration cases prosecuted by Christie's office between 2002 and 2007. Tucker compared that to the U.S. Attorney's office in Kansas, which, despite a much smaller population, prosecuted 597 cases in the same time period. "This man is an utter embarrassment," Dobbs wailed.


2. Gun Control

In an October 2009 appearance on Sean Hannity's Fox News show, Christie voiced support for some gun-control laws:

HANNITY: Are there any issues where you are, quote, moderate to left as a Republican?

CHRISTIE: Listen, I favor some of the gun-control measures we have in New Jersey.

HANNITY: Bad idea.

CHRISTIE: Listen, we have a densely-populated state, and there's a big hand gun problem in New Jersey. Now, I don't support all the things that the governor supports by a long stretch. But I think on guns — certain gun control issues, looking at it from a law-enforcement perspective, seeing how many police officers were killed, we have an illegal gun problem in New Jersey.

HANNITY: Should every — should every citizen in the state be allowed to get a licensed weapon if they want one?

CHRISTIE: In New Jersey, that's not going to happen, Sean.

HANNITY: Why?

CHRISTIE: Listen, the Democratic legislature we have, there's no way those type of things — listen, at the end of the day, what I support are common sense laws that will allow people to protect themselves, but I also am very concerned about the safety of our police officers on the streets, very concerned. And I want to make sure that we don't have an abundance of guns out there.


Again, most people believe in having some "common sense" gun-control laws. But when politicians say "common sense gun-control laws," conservatives hear "seize all weapons and ban hunting and make everyone eat tofu." Compare Christie's even-handedness on guns to Perry, who literally goes jogging with a laser-sighted pistol in case he needs to shoot any coyotes.

When Perry was asked earlier this month whether the supports gun control, he responded, "I am actually for gun control. Use both hands."


3. Climate Change


Rick Perry claims that climate change is a hoax that scientists have concocted as a way to get more funding. Chris Christie, after going back and forth on the issue a bit, said just this August that "climate change is real" and "human activity plays a role in these changes." As for those scheming scientists, Christie said that "when you have over 90 percent of the world’s scientists who have studied this stating that climate change is occurring and that humans play a contributing role, it’s time to defer to the experts."

4. Race to the Top

Race to the Top, the federal program created by President Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan in which large grants are offered to states that reform their education systems, shouldn't necessarily be a problem for conservatives. After all, some of the reforms Race to the Top hopes to incentivize, such as measuring teachers based on the success of their students, are goals shared by Republicans. But apparently it's a sin these days to support anything the Obama administration does. In the last GOP debate, Rick Perry proclaimed that "there is one person on this stage that is for Obama's Race to the Top and that is Governor Romney," adding, "[T]hat is not conservative." Mitt Romney then tied himself up in knots trying to deny the accusation. "I'm not sure exactly what he's saying," Romney claimed. "I don't support any particular program that he's describing."

Well, we know Chris Christie supports Race to the Top, because as governor, he applied for its funds. Christie also called Obama a "great ally" in education reform and praised Duncan as an "extraordinary leader on this issue."

5. Muslims

Remember when people pretended, for a little while, that the ground-zero mosque was a slap in the face of the victims of 9/11? In the heat of the controversy, as Republican politicians demagogued the issue to death, Christie claimed that the mosque was "being used as a political football by both parties." He added that while we must "give some measure of deference to the feelings" of 9/11 families, "it would be wrong to so overreact to that, that we paint Islam with a brush of radical Muslim extremists that just want to kill Americans because we are Americans."

And while we're talking about Muslims, Christie came under fire by some anti-Islam hysterics this summer for his appointment of Sohail Mohammed to New Jersey Superior Court. Mohammed, a Muslim lawyer, at one point represented Mohammed Qatanani, a New Jersey imam facing deportation who had alleged past ties to Hamas. The ties were never proven and Qatanani wasn't deported, partly owing to the support he received from Jewish leaders, politicians, and law-enforcement officials like Chris Christie, who called Qatanani "a man of great goodwill." As for the outcry over his nomination of Mohammed, Christie said, "It's just crazy, and I'm tired of dealing with the crazies."



Wild Thing's comment.......


Christie's speech at the Reagan Library was nothing more than a McCain-ish "we need to cross the isle" speech...talk about "leadership is compromise." Blehhhh

Is anyone else wondering just who is so urgently begging Christie to run? And why?


I liked Christie’s handling of the unions and the budget, BUT that is all there is. Christie is great for NJ, but not great for the country. We need the next prez to come and really shake things up, like getting oil fracking going, drilling in ANWAR, really cutting small bussiness taxes etc. that is not Christie, that is Rick Perry.

One other thing, Romney is not cutting it so they the Republican left and rinos want to send in the second string. Murdoch has been proping up Romney for months, that debate was a set up to destroy Perry (look at the soft ball questions given to Romney, they allowed him to talk way after the bell rang, and everyone on the stage plus the moderators piled on Perry).

I am glad Jay has the various candidates on his show. I am not sure if he has had all of them yet or not. I know he had Michele Bachmann and it was horrible even Jay was disgusted in how she kept up with the story about the mysterious woman. hahaha

Mitt Romney Aide...Said In Cockiness: “It’s over. Perry is toast.”




Romney: Same Candidate, Different Positions



Source:


Romney addressed a gathering of GOP activists at this island resort several hours after Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has assumed Romney’s former role as a fragile front-runner for the GOP nomination, suggested in a speech to the same crowd that Romney was a slick campaigner who “blurs lines” between Romney’s position’s and Obama’s.

A Michigan native, Romney used his keynote address to look beyond the nomination fight and focus his venom on Obama. Emboldened by Perry’s poor debate performances and a weak third-place finish in a Florida straw poll Saturday, Romney advisers privately expressed renewed confidence in their strategy to keep the focus on the economy and the president.

One Romney aide, speaking on condition of anonymity, overstated Romney’s strength but underscored the team’s cockiness when he said, “It’s over. Perry is toast.”

Gossip Monger Or Liar Have Your Pick, Michele Bachmann Goes On Jay Leno To Push Her Unfounded LIE






.


Wild Thing's comment.......

This sicko was on Jay Leno last night. Sorry but she has crossed the line and keeps crossing it.

Bachmann is a real piece of work!!! SCUM! What you are seeing is a woman that either makes things up or IF she was told what she said from 'some woman about her child".....Michele does not check it out, does not BOTHER to get a name. Michele is thus into passing on gossip. If that is not the case then Michele Bachmann is a freaking LIAR! Are you listening Bachmann you are a disgrace!!!!!!!!!!

The thing is it is not about who she is attacking, this goes way beyond that. It is about what she is doing, how she is doing it and that she will not stop. NO facts, only gossip and or lies. She disgusting!!!


She is hurting our party by doing this. Conservatives/ Republicans are supposed to be better then lies and pushing gossip like this. That is what the left does.

Neil Cavuto, Hannity and others and now Jay Leno have all asked her about this mysterious woman that she talked to after the debate. Each person that has asked her never gets a good answer and they all give the same look, like what is going on here. Bachmann is not stupid and she has to know that ( IF) then the woman spoke to her to at least get her name for referrence later. Bachmann has to realize this is not some accusation to just throw around without being able to back it up. Because of all of these things I can only think it is a lie or half truth at least and she needs to either admit it or move on and stop discussing it and let it die out. She has done the damage but not to Perry she has done it to herself.

I feel badly about it because I have posted in the past of the many wonderful things she has done and this is so stupid on her part to do this now just to try and take down the candidate at the top.

Jim DeMint: Obama jobs plan ‘venture socialism’





DeMint: Obama jobs plan ‘venture socialism’

The Daily Caller


Calling President Barack Obama a “socialist” used to be considered taboo by left-wing critics of the right. But the president has not done much to alter that perception, at least according to South Carolina Republican Sen. Jim DeMint.

In an appearance on Wednesday’s “On the Record,” host Greta van Sustren asked DeMint if there was anywhere he could find common ground with Obama

“I would love to be able to work with the president on something,” DeMint said. “But he’s practicing what we call ‘venture socialism.’ I mean, he basically has taken an approach where it’s the government that needs to stimulate jobs, and I know as an employer… you don’t hire someone because the payroll tax is a little lower or you get a $4,000 tax credit. And you certainly don’t hire anyone if they’re going to tax you more, which the president says — everybody making over $200,000 got to pay more of their fair share. They already pay 50 percent of all federal taxes now and 40 percent of that income is small business.”

Wild Thing's comment........


I love how bold DeMint has become with this president. Obama is a socialist and our representatives should be screaming it from the mountains .

Romney: "There's a Good Shot" I Can Be In The White House




Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is escorted by business leader Jim Click Jr. after arriving in Tucson for a round table discussion at a local car dealership. (Ross D. Franklin / Associated Press)

Romney predicts Obama will be a one-term president, and said he would probably replace him


Romney: "There's a Good Shot" I Can Be In The White House

Los Angeles Times

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney seized on Wednesday's news that the income of the average American family has declined to what it was in 1996 to argue that President Obama has proven himself unable to fix the nation's economy.

"That is an indication of failure and the policies of this president have not worked," Romney told a few dozen business leaders at an economic roundtable at a car dealership. "The economy was in trouble when he became president. Everything he did, almost without exception, made things worse. His policies have failed."


Romney asked the gathered businessmen and women to share their concerns, which ranged from onerous regulations that created uncertainty, the rising cost of healthcare and the tax code. Romney reiterated his positions, arguing that regulatory relief, an overhaul of the tax code and a change in how consumers purchase health insurance were key to fixing the nation's economy.

"We keep thinking a little stimulus will get things going. What's wrong in America right now cannot be cured by a little cup of gasoline on the fire," Romney said. "We need to fundamentally reshape the foundation of our economy and its relationship with government so businesses are once again and individuals are once again incentivized to invest in America."


He predicted that Obama would be a one-term president, and said he would probably replace him.

"There's a good shot I can be in the White House some day," Romney said


.

Romney Won't Use The Word Socialist

CNN


Romney used the interview Thursday to put some distance between himself and Texas Gov. Rick Perry when asked if he would use the word “socialist” to describe the Obama White House.

“Well, you know, words have a lot of unintended meanings and calling people socialists probably goes on the fact that it is true that President Obama’s team and the president himself seem to believe that government has a better approach to our economy than the private sector, and I disagree with that approach,” Romney said.


Romney continued, “I don’t use the word socialist, or I haven’t so far, but I do agree the president’s approach is government heavy, government intensive and not working.”




.



Wild Thing's comment......

Yeowie, I would not say that. hahaha


What a difference, others call it like it is.......DeMint and Perry and others saying socialist, or socialism regarding Obamoa. But Mitt Romney just won't do it. Sorry Mitt, we need leadership with a spine and you lost yours a long time ago.

GOP Sweep, Republicans Win Special Elections In Nevada and New York




Republicans are trying to sweep the two Special Congressional Elections being held tonight. Right now, Republican Bob Turner is leading Democrat David Weprin in New York’s 9th Congressional District by 2,500 votes, 53%-47%. This district has been in Democrat hands since 1923. So, it would send shockwaves throughout the country if Turner can pull out a win in Anthony Weiner’s old district. Barack Obama is not polling well in this district, and a loss there by the Democrats would signal just how weak he is around the country.

In Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District, Republican Mark Amodei is way ahead of Democrat Kate Marshall in early vote returns. Here are links to the Associated Press vote returns for the two districts:

New York CD-9

Nevada CD-2

UPDATE 9/14/11 12:05 AM - The Associated Press has called the New York CD-9 race for Republican Bob Turner!


UPDATE 9/14/11 12:11 AM - The Associated Press has now called the Nevada CD-2 race for Republican Mark Amodei!

Blacks Sue Obama & Democrats For Racial Discrimination



Blacks Sue Obama & Democrats For Racial Discrimination

Black Republican Association

By Frances Rice


Courageous aptly describes Rev. Wayne Perryman who has just filed a historic and landmark lawsuit in federal district court demanding an apology from the Democratic Party for centuries of racist oppression. This is Rev. Perryman's second attempt to seek long overdue justice. His first lawsuit in 2005 went all the way to the United States Supreme Court. In that case, the Democrats hired an army of lawyers, admitted their racist past, but refused to apologize. The Democrats were let off the hook by the Court on the legal technicality of "standing," since Rev. Perryman had not suffered personally from the Democratic Party's horrendous racism. Different this time are two factors. First, President Barack Obama is a named defendant. Second, this writer has joined Rev. Perryman as a plaintiff since I did suffer personally at the hands of the racist Democrats during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.

Blacks File Class Action Racial Discrimination Suit Against Obama & Democrats


Seattle, WA. On September 11, 2011, blacks from the West Coast and the East Coast joined together and signed one of the most comprehensive legal briefs ever prepared on racial discrimination, then filed their brief today, September 12th, at 9:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time in US District Court in Seattle (Case No. C11 - 1503). The plaintiffs, who refer to the defendants as "Father of Racism," allege that as an organization, the Democratic Party has consistently refused to apologize for the role they played in slavery and Jim Crow laws and for other subsequent racist practices from 1792 to 2011.

Rev. Wayne Perryman, a former Democrat himself and the lead plaintiff in this class action lawsuit, said he was inspired to file this action after seeing the recent movie The Help. The movie takes place in the region that was exclusively controlled by Democrats for more than 150 years (the South). Mrs. Frances P. Rice, the Chair of the National Black Republican Association is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit. Mrs. Rice is a resident of Sarasota, Florida and has lived in the South most of her life.

The case cites the collective work of over 350 legal scholars and includes Congressional records, case law, research from our nation's top history professors, racist statements from Democratic elected officials, citations from the Democrat's National Platforms regarding their support of slavery, excepts of speeches from Senator Obama, individual testimonies from blacks who lived in the Jim Crow South and opinions from the NAACP.


Perryman said President Obama was named as a defendant not only because he is the official leader of the Democratic Party, but because of certain statements he made about his own party in his book, Dreams from My Father. In 2009, the President was asked to issue an apology to blacks on behalf of his party, but he refused. Unlike other reparations lawsuits, this lawsuit merely asks for a public apology, but no monetary damages.


In the 40-page brief, Rev. Perryman tells the court that the Democratic Party, (the party that is quick to call the Tea Party and Republicans racist), is the same party that refuses to confess and/or acknowledge (in public and on their website) that they are the party that supported the institution that packed millions of black men, women and children in the deep dark hulls of slave ships with just barely enough food and water to keep them alive, and forced them to lie in their own urine, feces, and vomit for the duration of a long trip across the Atlantic.

And after arriving in America, it was the members of their party that forced these poor souls to work from sunup to sundown for the next 70 years and never paid them one dime. And when the black victims were fortunate enough to escape, it was the Democratic Party that passed Fugitive Slave laws to return them to their brutal slave masters. When their inhumane institution of slavery was challenged by the opposing party, Democrats countered by placing threats in their political platforms (1844-1856), - threatening anyone who dared to interfere with what they called, "the sectional issue of Domestic Slavery."

In May 21, 1856, they carried out their threats when they attacked their opposition, Senator Charles Sumner with a walking cane on the Senate floor and when they attacked with guns, freed blacks and abolitionists on the streets of Lawrence, Kansas. Six years later, Democrats called themselves 'Confederates" and went to war killing thousands to defend and protect their racist institution of slavery.

After losing the war, they fought against constitutional amendments and civil rights legislation for blacks, and chose instead to form terrorist organizations, legislate Black Codes and Jim Crow Laws and support every landmark case that was designed to deny blacks their constitutional rights including the Slaughterhouse Case, Plessy v Ferguson, the Civil Rights Cases of 1881 to overturn the 1875 Civil Rights Act, and Brown v. the Board of Education. While many of these cases were pending, Democrats proudly adopted the name "The Party of White Supremacy" and committed every inhumane violent act known to mankind (from 1867 to 1977) to keep blacks in "their place." And to add insult to injury, after killing millions of blacks through their racist institutions, they hired powerful attorneys to keep this information from blacks and to avoid apologizing to blacks.

Perryman said, "Any organization that has such a racist history and receives 97% of the African American vote (after doing all they could to deny blacks the right to vote), should willingly apologize without being forced do so through a lawsuit. He said, "I guess they feel they have nothing to apologize for." Perryman went on to say that he is "convinced that Democrats will only apologize if the media, or the courts (with public pressure) will force them to do so. The man who authored the book: The Audacity of Hope, now has the "audacity" to refuse to apologize for his political party and their racist institutions, that took the lives of millions of his own people.
Apologies for Racism – Precedent Set

In the 40-page brief covering a period from 1792 to 2011, Perryman makes the following claims regarding past apologies for racism and racial injustices. Perryman said history reveals that an apology or reparation for blacks would not be an issue today had the Democratic President Andrew Johnson chosen to sign Senate Bill 60. Since Johnson's veto of Senate Bill 60, the door for reparations involving racial injustices remained closed for over 120 years.

In 1988, Congress opened that door with the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. Under that new bill, Japanese internment victims received an apology plus $20,000 each in reparation pay. In 1993, the victims of the Rosewood, Florida Massacre received an apology and reparations from the State of Florida. On May 16, 1997, President Clinton issued an apology to the victims of the Tuskegee Experiment and paid the African American victims a total of $10,000,000 in reparations.


On February 7, 2005, the 109th Congress issued Senate Resolution 39 and apologized for not enacting lynching laws to protect those who were victims of lynching. In that resolution, Congress stopped short of acknowledging that all of the lynchings took place in regions controlled by Democrats.

And finally on January 20, 2007, the Executive Committee of the Democratic Party of North Carolina apologized for the 1898 riot and massacre that killed several black Republicans and drove them out of office.

Who is Rev. Perryman?


Rev. Perryman is the same Seattle minister who used his biblical research in 1994 to persuade the world's two largest Christian publishers and the Encyclopedia Britannica to apologize and remove the "Curse of Ham" theory from all of their publications. The curse theory had existed for over 500 years and was used by Southern Christians and Democrats to justify slavery and their mistreatment of blacks.

Thank God for these brave people, Frances Rice and Wayne Perryman. They know the truth and the real history and have been working hard to educate and get the word out telling blacks how they have been lied to.

Statement by Texas Gov. Rick Perry on President Obama’s Speech

Rick Perry's website


Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding President Barack Obama’s speech to Congress:

“President Obama’s call for nearly a half-trillion dollars in more government stimulus when America has more than $14 trillion in debt is guided by his mistaken belief that we can spend our way to prosperity.

“Like the president’s earlier $800 billion stimulus program, this proposal offers little hope for millions of Americans who have lost jobs on his watch, and taxpayers who are rightly concerned that their children will inherit a mountain of debt.

“America needs jobs, smaller government, less spending and a president with the courage to offer more than yet another speech.”

.


Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is running for president, filled the void with a press conference in which she ripped the president’s plan to pieces.

“Tonight, the president under the veil of one of the most sacred, deliberative forms -- a joint session of Congress -- delivered yet one more political speech where he doubled down on more of the same policies that are killing the United States economy,” she said, later calling the president “politically paralyzed” and “philosophically incapable of doing what needs to be done.”




.


Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney released a web video titled “960 Days” that highlights what his campaign calls Obama's three years of failure to turn around the economy.

The video shows a clip of the president’s speech Thursday on the 961th day.

“Mr. President. You are 960 days late,” the narrator says.


.

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, who worked in the Obama administration as ambassador to China until earlier this year, said Americans are “tired of President Obama’s empty rhetoric and failed policies; they’re desperately searching for leadership and, above all, results.”

“Tonight’s list of regurgitated half-measures demonstrates that President Obama fundamentally doesn’t understand how to turn our economy around,” he said.




.


"Tonight we witnessed the end of a Presidency. To say the speech was a rehash of failed ideas is an insult to failed ideas. Even the Democrats seemed bored. The media will squander whatever shred of credibility they have to prop up Obama, but it is now beyond them. The speech was petty, petulant and highly arrogant. Worse, it revealed, for the entire nation to see, that Obama has no clue what to do. The GOP should pick their nominee carefully, because that person WILL be President."--Mike Flynn,BigGovernment.com editor-in-chief

Shakeup in Michele Bachmann's Campaign.... Manager Ed Rollins and Her Campaign’s Number Two Man David Polyansky....




Big shakeup in the Michele Bachmann Campaign last night.

Bachmann’s Campaign Manager Ed Rollins is stepping down and will continue in an advisory role. But he will no longer be part of the day-to-day management of the campaign. In the video above, Rollins cited his age and health as reasons why he cannot continue.

However, Bachmann is also losing her campaign’s number two man in David Polyansky:


Rollins is now 68 years old, and served as National Campaign Director for President Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election campaign that won 49 out of 50 states.

Rollins said Bachmann is “still in this thing” and is now the “third” candidate. “Legitimately, it’s a Romney-Perry Race.”


Politico


On the heels of our report that Michele Bachmann campaign manager Ed Rollins is stepping back into an advisory role, citing health concerns, comes word that his deputy, David Polyansky, is leaving the campaign.


"I wish Michele nothing but the best, and anyone who underestimates her as a candidate does so at their own peril," Polyansky told POLITICO.


But a GOP source familiar with the situation said that Polyansky had "strategic differences on the path forward" with the candidate, who has struggled to gain traction in the last few weeks.

Polyansky and Rollins led the team that brought Bachmann to her Ames Straw Poll win in Iowa, along with a handful of others like veteran pollster Ed Goeas. It wasn't immediately clear who was taking over the top two day-to-day slots.

Bachmann is known for having had an unusually large number of staffers from her congressional office depart in a short time frame, although a campaign spokeswoman said they'd always planned on restructuring.


.


Wild Thing's comment.........

Wows! Ed Rollins really stabbed her in the back with his comment. It speaks to the kind of person that Ed Rollins is that he would dump on her both in terms of compensatory support as well as badmouthing her chances in public on the same day.

Michele is a good person and does not deserve that.

Presidential Candidate Forum (hosted by DeMint) Set For Monday In Columbia .... 3 pm EDT on CNN

7 On Your Side

Half of a dozen Presidential candidates will make their way to South Carolina Monday, for a GOP forum hosted by Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina).

According to CNN, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman, Herman Cain, Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich have agreed to attend the “Palmetto Freedom Forum” in Columbia.

On ABC’s “This Week,” Senator DeMint said he's not going to endorse any candidate for months, and he's waiting to see what they have to say at the forum.

“This forum's going to be very helpful to me and others, because instead of forcing them to answer my questions, we are going to encourage them to define the issues on their own terms,” said DeMint. “This will give us a little bit deeper understanding on how they view the Constitution and their role as President.”

The "Palmetto Freedom Forum" starts at 3:00pm.......CNN and ETV will broadcast the event.

George W. Bush in the National Geographic interview says his decision to return to the White House on September 11Th for the presidential address to the nation was over the objections of just about everybody.


Bush: I made the decision to go back to Washington on the objections of just about everybody else, I'd had it, I said I needed to get home. A lot had developed and it was important to wrap the day up with a presidential speech...I damn sure wasn't gonna give it from a bunker in Nebraska, I wanted to give it from the Oval Office, I didn't want to give the enemy a psychological victory"

Perry, Romney To Speak In San Antonio This Week For The Veterans of Foreign Wars National Convention BUT This Is First Time In 112 Year History No One From WH Wants To Be There




Perry, Romney to speak in S.A.

For the first time in 112 years, no one from the White House will appear at the VFW convention.


SA News

Republican presidential hopefuls Gov. Rick Perry and Mitt Romney will be in San Antonio this week for the Veterans of Foreign Wars national convention, but for the first time in its 112-year history, no one from the White House has committed to making an appearance.

Officials with the nation's largest combat veterans association said they have about 8,000 registrants, many of whom are battling airport cancellations from Hurricane Irene to make it to the downtown Convention Center for Monday's kickoff.

That's when Perry is scheduled to take the stage. By custom, he was invited as governor of the host state. Conference leaders said they have asked him to appear as state governor — not as a presidential candidate — because his invitation went out before he announced he was seeking the GOP nomination.

On Tuesday, Romney is set to speak. Several months ago, when invitations went out for speakers, the former governor of Massachusetts was at the time the lone presidential candidate to have announced, VFW officials said. The group's policy is to invite only announced presidential candidates.

“No matter what, we take heat for it,” said VFW spokesman Jerry Newberry. “When President Clinton spoke one year, we caught heat from members. When President Bush did, we took heat. Same with President Obama. But we're a diverse organization, and we don't care what party (speakers) come from.”


Adding to the frustration is not having Obama or any of his representatives accept the group's invitation. The organization is noted for its advocacy of veterans' rights, especially health care and military benefits, both of which are on the chopping block in talks about reducing the federal budget.

“When the President is unable to attend, it has always been customary for the White House to choose a high-level administration official as an alternative speaker,” wrote Richard Eubank, the group's national commander, in a statement.


“It is an insult of the highest magnitude that for the first time in the history of the VFW, the White House has apparently decided that this great and iconic organization of combat veterans and all of its members are not worthy of its notice by not at least offering a first-tier speaker from the administration.”


Obama is scheduled to speak to another veterans organization, the American Legion, on Aug. 30 in Minneapolis for its annual national convention. It has an estimated 2.4 million members and is made up of both combat and noncombat veterans.

The VFW's national gathering will last four days, concluding Thursday after a series of seminars and business meetings designed to prioritize issues for its estimated 2 million members.

Wild Thing's comment.....

Obama should not be anywhere near our Veterans or our troops and that is my first reaction.


I do realize how it is something that is supposed to be done and like the article says each time someone is not happy with the president.


My second reaction is what a slap in the face it is for him not to go or send someeone for him.

Sen. Marco Rubio on Sean Hannity's show


"The fact that America exists is an inspiration to the rest of the world," Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in an interview with Sean Hannity from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.


"Ronald Reagan and the things he stood for defined so much of what I experienced growing up and to be here today just brought all that back and to have a chance to talk about the two major issues during Ronald Reagan's presidency.


"One, what would America's role in the world be -- and that, of course, led to the end of the Cold War.

"And the other is what is the role of government and what the role of government should be in America. And he fought that battle to try to get us back to the right place. And because we are not there now, we are facing this day of reckoning. We have basically, the way to understand it is we have a government. America has built for itself a government that not only we, the richest country in the history of the world, can continue to fund," Rubio said.

Wild Thing's comment.....

OMG this man, that America is blessed with is so awesome. Thank you God for his life, his passion and his love for America.

I promise you if you have the time, you will not be disappointed if you can watch the speech at the top video and the Q & A he does especially. I recommend all the videos but I know it takes time.


This is from an email I got from Marco Rubiio.

I was born and raised in Ronald Reagan's America, a time marked by the defeat of communism and the redefinition of the proper role of government.


The debates going on in Washington today are not much different than the challenges Ronald Reagan confronted and overcame. We can overcome them again, but we'll need to start by electing more conservative leaders to the United States Senate.


We're approaching a critical election that won't just decide the balance of power in Washington, but the kind of country we leave to our children and grandchildren.

“Daily Caller” Survey Finds Gov. Rick Perry the “Top Choice” Among “Politically Active Conservatives”






The Daily Caller

Newly declared presidential candidate Rick Perry is now the undisputed GOP frontrunner, while Michele Bachmann’s star has started to fall, according to the latest Daily Caller/ConservativeHome national presidential primary tracking poll.

Perry now leads the field in all five categories polled this month: first choice, most electable, second choice, best at dealing with the economy, and best at keeping Washington spending under control — often by a large margin.

Perry is the top choice for 29.3 percent of Republicans, handily trouncing Michele Bachmann’s 17.0 percent and Mitt Romney’s 11.1 percent.

But Perry has not just captured the hearts of Republicans; he has also captured the minds of those who are pragmatically looking not just for a nominee they like, but for one who can beat President Barack Obama.


Asked who would do the best job with the economy, Perry is the leader with 27.1 percent of the vote, while Romney is a distant second with 14.5 percent.


The survey was e-mailed to 2,500 participants nationwide who identify as conservative Republicans and are considered likely primary voters. The majority of the panel is politically active, with 70 percent having contributed money to a campaign or worked on a campaign. Thirty-five percent of the members on the panel self-identify as part of the tea party, while 58 percent say they sympathize with the movement.

The results are based on a sample of 726 respondents surveyed from August 18 to August 21.

Four GOP Candidates Sign Up For DeMint Presidential Forum




Four GOP candidates sign up for DeMint presidential forum

CNN

Four presidential candidates have accepted invitations to participate in a Labor Day forum in South Carolina being organized by Sen. Jim DeMint, a conservative kingmaker who has yet to pick a horse in the 2012 race.


Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and businessman Herman Cain have agreed to take part in the Palmetto Freedom Forum, to be held on Sept. 5 at a convention center in downtown Columbia.

Invitations to the event went out to eight candidates Monday, a Republican source told CNN.

Also invited were former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, along with two Republicans still flirting with a bid: former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

But event organizers - a small group of well-connected DeMint supporters calling themselves the "Keep Your Powder Dry Caucus" as they search for a 2012 candidate to get behind - did not invite to two declared candidates, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman.


Organizers said early on that to be invited, a candidate must surpass the 5 percent threshold in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls. Santorum and Huntsman have yet to do so.


The forum, officially titled the "American Principles Project Palmetto Freedom Forum," will be fronted by DeMint, Iowa Rep. Steve King and Robert George, a conservative legal scholar and the founder of the American Principles Project.

Candidates will take turns fielding questions from the trio of panelists for roughly 20 minutes at a time.

According to organizers, candidates will be asked to "engage in a thoughtful, substantive discussion of their stances on critical issues facing our country."

GOP Candidate Herman Cain: "If ObamaCare had been Implemented when I got Cancer, I'd be Dead"






GOP Presidential Candidate Herman Cain speaking in South Carolina where he said “if ObamaCare had been fully implemented when i caught cancer, I’d be dead.” Cain explained that his cancer was growing so rapidly that if he had had to wait for months to get needed tests and treatment – as is often true in nations with socialized medicine – he would not have survived. Cain has been in complete remission now for years.

This single issue – the need to repeal ObamaCare – is enough of a reason to vote Obama out of office before we all are forced to live that nightmare.

Rick Perry: “And if I hurt the president’s feelings, well, with all due respect, I love my country and I love future generations more than I care about his feelings"






“And if I hurt the president’s feelings, well, with all due respect, I love my country and I love future generations more than I care about his feelings,” the 61-year-old governor added.

The Boston Herald

The rhetoric will probably get heated. I’m going to be outspoken, I’m going to be passionate, I’m going to be calling it like I see it,” Perry told the Herald in a one-on-one interview, as he shrugged off Obama’s recent scolding that he should be “more careful” about what he says.

“And if I hurt the president’s feelings, well, with all due respect, I love my country and I love future generations more than I care about his feelings,” the 61-year-old governor added.

Perry, who embraced the Tea Party even before GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann, also brushed off Democratic attempts to paint him as a marginal candidate.

“It’s the height of hypocrisy for this president to call anyone a marginal performer. If anyone is a marginal performer, it’s him. He has downgraded the good name and credit of this country,” Perry said. “Talk about someone who has marginalized America.”

" Come and Take It "



"Come and Take It" reads the white-on-black lettering across the top of Texas Gov. Rick Perry's boots, a slogan ostensibly about the 1835 Texas War of Independence but one that could easily apply to his 2010 Republican primary challenge from Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

More about 'Come and Take it':

“Come and take it” was a slogan used in the Texas Revolution in 1835. In March 1831, Lt. Juan Gomez of the Mexican army gave a small bronze cannon to the colony of San Antonio. It was later transported to Gonzales. There it was used during the minor skirmish known as the Battle of Gonzales, when a small group of Texans resisted Mexican forces who had orders to take back the cannon. As a symbol of defiance, the Texans hastily fashioned a flag with a black star and an image of the cannon along with the taunt “Come and take it!”

Wikipedia claims the slogan and symbol has also been adopted by modern day gun rights' advocates.

Gov. Rick Perry says Obama is hell bent on making America socialist ~ Perry Is Absolutely Correct!!!








This is from November of 2009

Texas GOP Gov. Rick Perry accused President Barack Obama on Wednesday of punishing Texas and being hell-bent on turning the United States into a socialist country.

Speaking at a luncheon for a Midland County Republican Womens group, Perry said that this is an administration hell-bent toward taking American towards a socialist country. And we all dont need to be afraid to say that because thats what it is.

Perry praised the tea party movement to the Republican activists in attendance, crediting the grassroots groups with discouraging some Democrats in Washington from pushing for a public option in the health care bill.

If you all think those tea parties didnt work, then let me tell you something, Perry said. When they all came home in August for those town hall meetings, they got an earful. Then they went back to Washington, D.C. and the Senate voted that public option down in committee with a majority of Democrats in the Senate.

Perry also accused the Obama administration of intentionally dumping illegal immigrants from other western states in Texas, recalling a conversation he had with local officials notifying him that illegal aliens that were caught in Nogales, Arizona were being dropped off by federal authorities in Presidio, Texas.

Friday a week ago, I got not a phone call from Washington, not a letter from Washington and as a matter of fact, I dont think any member of our congressional delegation was even notified. The first time we were contacted was by the superintendent of the school and the county judge of Presidio County, Perry said.

They said, do you all know whats fixin to happen? I said, well, no. Whats going on? They said the government has just called us and said for us to get ready for an influx of illegal aliens who were captured illegally crossing the border.

Its called the alien transfer-and-exit program, Perry told the crowd, trucking them from Nogales, past El Paso down to our western border in Presidio.

The Texas governor said he sees the action as punishing this state and urged the assembled Republicans to stand up to Washington.

I say its time to make tea parties twice as big as what they were, Perry declared. I think its time for us to stand up and say to Washington, D.C. that we are no longer going to accept that kind of stuff sitting down and being quiet.

Perry Tells N.H. Audience He's a Global-Warming Skeptic ~ He Is Correct!!!





GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry told New Hampshire voters Wednesday that he does not believe in manmade global warming


Perry Tells N.H. Audience He's a Global-Warming Skeptic

National Journal


Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Wednesday told a New Hampshire business crowd that he harbors major doubts about human contributions to global warming, questioning the motives of scientists who have warned about accelerating climate change and arguing against expensive “anti-carbon programs.”

Fielding audience questions after brief remarks that dwelled largely on fiscal and economic issues, Perry encountered one skeptic who said he was quoting from Perry’s 2010 book, Fed Up!: Our Fight to Save America From Washington, then asked whether misgivings about climate science fueled distrust of federal research in general.

“I do believe that the issue of global warming has been politicized,” Perry answered. “I think there are a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects. I think we’re seeing it almost weekly or even daily, scientists who are coming forward and questioning the original idea that man-made global warming is what is causing the climate to change. Yes, our climates change. They’ve been changing ever since the earth was formed.”


Pegging the global cost of implementing “anti-carbon programs” in the billions or trillions of dollars, Perry said, “I don’t think from my perspective that I want America to be engaged in spending that much money on [what is] still a scientific theory that has not been proven, and from my perspective, is more and more being put into question.”


Perry’s skepticism on modernity’s role in evolving weather patterns is of a piece with his strongly anti-regulation message, and fits with the tea party’s push for limited government. And he is not alone in the GOP field in doubting scientific assertions. But it puts him at odds with his top rival for the GOP nomination.

In June, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney told a New Hampshire audience that humans had played a part in global warming.

Wild Thing's comment.......

Some of those giving their opinions in the video are idiots. One man sais Perry sounds like Bush about global warming. But the thing is anyone that says it is man made will sound like anyone else that says it is man made it sure as heck does not mean we nor Perry are not thinking for ourselves. sheesh.

Perry did good and I am so glad he is not in agreement with Mitt Romney or anyone else that want to kiss up to the fake global warming baloney.

Rick Perry Admits Mistake on Gardasil-HPV Vaccine Decision ~ Name Even One Other Politician That Admits He was Wrong! God Bless Perry!



Rick Perry Admits Mistake on Gardasil-HPV Vaccine Decision


Life News


On his first day on the campaign trail, Texas Gov. Rick Perry admitted he made a mistake on the sole issue some pro-life advocates bring up as a concern despite his sterling pro-life record.
Perry, in a conversation with a New Hampshire voter, walked back his decision to mandate the vaccine Gardasil to 11-year old girls. According to a Politico report, a voter confronted him on the issue — explaining his remorse for the decision and indicating he put an opt-out provision in place allowing parents to decide not to have their young girls receive the vaccine.

Perry explained that, in his zeal to protect children, he went too far.

“I signed an executive order that allowed for an opt-out, but the fact of the matter is I didn’t do my research well enough to understand that we needed to have a substantial conversation with our citizenry,” he said. “I hate cancer. Let me tell you, as a son who has a mother and father who are both cancer survivors.”


“I hate cancer. And this HPV, we were seeing young ladies die at the early age. What we should have done was a program that frankly should have allowed them to opt in, or some type of program like that, but here’s what I learned — when you get too far out in front of the parade they will let you know. And that’s exactly what our legislature did.”


UPDATE: “I made a mistake on that,” Perry told Iowa Radio later in the day Monday, calling it “an error in not having a conversation with the people of the state of Texas.”

“I agreed with their decision. I don’t always get it right, but I darn sure listen,” he said of the legislature responding to his decision.


“One of the things I do pride myself on, I listen. When the electorate says, ‘Hey, that’s not what we want to do,’” Perry told Houston’s ABC affiliate on Monday. “We backed up, took a look at what we did. I understand I work for the people, not the other way around. There was a better way to do that, I realize that now.”

Wild Thing's comment.........

Has Romney admitted he made a mistake with Romneycare. NO Have any other politicans admitted they made a mistake about anything? Not that I can remember. BUT Perry has admitted he made a mistake.


Let me point out one other thing about the individual that wrote the POISON Pen article. Malkin December 2008 wrote a scathing article called " Truthers to the left of me, truthers to the right". It was a hit piece attacking those of us that are called "birthers" and Malkin said we were the same as the Truthers.


But she was not done with her horrible rant and comparison, no, she had to bring it up again in April of this year with yet another article titled " The birth certificate circus". That was written because Obama showed his FAKE birth certificate and Malkin felt the fake was enough and should satisfy the 'Birthers". Now she writes a hit piece about Perry and knowing all along that he has said he made a mistake.

Very disappointing indeed to see this happening.


And they say Democrats eat their own! Eat your own much Michelle???

Conservatives Need to Stop The Bilderberg Conspiracy Theory Nonsense




Conservatives Need to Stop The Bilderberg Conspiracy Theory Nonsense

Texas Fred

By: Gregg Hilton

Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) spoke to the 2007 Bilderberg Conference about energy security and policies which resulted in his state being responsible for 37% of all private sector job growth in America. The Governor is not a traitor, he is not controlled by the Bilderbergers, and has done nothing to jeopardize America’s sovereignty.

The three day annual meeting of the Bilderberg Group is now being held in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Today’s Alex Jones radio program denounced the gathering for attempting to destroy America’s sovereignty and plotting to create a single global currency.

Similar to most accusations made by Jones, the claims have no merit and there is no evidence to support them. Since 1945 the world has had a single reserve currency, and it is the American dollar.

An article today on Infowars.com claims Bill Clinton “is a prime example of a candidate selected and run by Bilderberg. Bilderberg is also responsible for selecting British Prime Ministers Tony Blair and David Cameron.”

It goes on to say Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX):

"is another pawn. . . Veteran Bilderberg sleuth Jim Tucker wrote last week about Perry’s likely entry into the 2012 field, pointing out that he may be Bilderberg’s ‘Ace in the Hole’ . . . Perry keeps pushing himself as a Bilderberg wild card. . . Bilderberg, true to form, wants the U.S. recession to continue throughout 2012 and for oil prices to remain high and increase further.”


This is complete nonsense and it makes conservatives appear foolish. I sent four messages to Mary Borrego yesterday when she said “George Bush is a traitor!!!!!” and went on to praise Ron Paul who wants America to give up its veto power in the UN Security Council. As I told her, the Bilderberg Group is not an advocacy organization and does not take official positions on any issue. They have never reached a conclusion on any subject, nor have they attempted to do so.

In 57 years they have never issued a policy statement or resolution. They have never taken a vote on any issue. The guests are both liberals and conservatives, and every gathering features debates. In 2004, there was a debate between then Sen. John Edwards (D-NC) and Ralph Reed of the Christian Coalition. No one accused them of working together.

Bilderberg primarily serves as a networking group for the well connected. The motivation in forming the organization in 1954 was to stop anti-American sentiments in Europe.

Most of the nonsense surrounding Bilderberg comes from the John Birch Society, Alex Jones, Infowars, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and other radical libertarians. Cuban leader Fidel Castro agrees with their conspiracy claims. An episode of Jesse Ventura’s TV program “Conspiracy Theory” was devoted to the Bilderberg Group.

George W. Bush, UK Prime Minister David Cameron of the Conservative Party, former Prime Ministers Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Condoleezza Rice and Richard Perle are not traitors. They did not participate in any plot to steal America’s sovereignty. Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) attended a 2007 Bilderberg Conference and Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) said he should be investigated for a criminal violation of the Logan Act which prevents our foreign policy from being undermined. Congressman Paul said Perry’s attendance was “A sign that he’s involved in the international conspiracy.” Other comments about the Bilderberg Conference include:


● Ann Liber of Prosper, Texas said Perry “Gets his marching orders from the Bilderbergers. He is a huge globalist and supports the North American Union (NAU).” Not only does the Governor disagree with her, but a NAU has never existed and no lawmaker has ever proposed it.


● Jeffrey Wimmer of Biloxi, Mississippi says “Gov. Perry has issues with conservatives like myself . .I’m very wary of guys the Bilderbergers pull into their New World Order circle.”


● Deb Stickley of Lexington, Kentucky: “They are developing a one world government. Don’t let anyone kid you on this one.”


● Ted Day of Tenino, Washington believes the Bilderbergers “are the true enemy, the rest are diversions.”


● Libertarian Mark Hamilton of Clifton, Virginia says “These meetings are where the billionaires purchase politicians.”


● Sally Linderman of Washington, D.C. says “They are meeting to totally collapse world economies and create a new currency under the New World Order.”


● Caroline Cowan Conger believes “They are about control, greed, power, and America’s breakdown as the country as we knew and loved.”


● Torey Dawn Hodges of Las Vegas is the only person I agreed with: “I think it’s another boondoggle conference that select people attend. Do I think it’s some nefarious conspiracy–heck no. I think the New World Order people have built this strange case around central bankers, Jews, the Council of Foreign Relations, Jews, Bilderberg, Jews, the Federal Reserve, Jews, etc. They don’t come out and say Jews, but start talking with them and Israel always emerges as a central planner of the New World Order. Seriously, I think Bilderberg is an event. It’s an intellectual exchange of ideas; likely a lot of stupid ideas. I don’t think the group has much influence.”

Congressman Paul is again seeking the GOP presidential nomination but continues to say there is little difference between Republicans and Democrats. In a 2009 interview the lawmaker said:

"The people who surround Obama or Bush generally come from the same philosophic viewpoint and they have their organizations – the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations and the Bilderbergers, and they’ve been around a long time. My biggest concern is what they preach: Keynesian economics and interventionism and world planning.”

These organizations do not pick presidents or other world leaders, they had nothing to with the creation of the European Union or any military action, and they have never called for a New World Order or a global currency.

They are similar to numerous think tanks, and the only difference is that the attendees are high profile. The Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission have both opened their proceedings to public scrutiny, maintain websites and have long listed their members.

If the Bilderberg Group is trying to establish a new currency or a one world government, then for 57 years they have been spectacular failures.

Wild Thing's comment.......


I thought this was an excellent write up and for those that might not have known a lot about the Bilderberg's and what it is and what they do. It is also a good article to forward to anyone that has questions about Perry regarding this.

So that should be it. The only complaints I have seen have been about this topic and the Gardasil injections. Both as you can see from the various posting on here pretty much debunk them.

No politican is going to be perfect, some are worse then others.But to accuse a person of something that has been answered or is not true then we are doing the work of the DNC and they do enough bashing and lies ias it is.

Gov. Rick Perry Refuses To Back Down On Bernanke Comment ~ Thank You Gov.!!!




Perry Refuses To Back Down On Bernanke Comment: “I’m Passionate About The Issue, I Stand By What I Said"

The Washington Post


Twelve hours removed from a controversy about his suggestion that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke was engaging in “treasonous” behavior Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s presidential campaign didn’t try to walk back the remark. In fact, they doubled down on it.


“I am passionate about the issue but I stand by what I said,” Perry told reporters in Iowa today.

Although Perry’s campaign is only a few days old, the episode provides a telling insight into the Texas governor: he is brash, bold and unapologetic about being so.

And that just might make him a perfect fit for the current Republican primary electorate who is mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.

A look back across Perry’s rhetorical history suggests that this latest controversy is nothing new.

Perry famously floated the idea of Texas seceding from the United States if the federal government kept trampling on states’ rights in 2009



Obama: Perry “Needs To Be More Careful” What He Says


Reuters

The White House denounced Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry on Tuesday for his threatening remarks toward the head of the U.S. Federal Reserve that represented some of the most inflammatory rhetoric of the 2012 election campaign.

At a campaign event on Monday, Perry was asked if Obama loved the country, and replied, “You need to ask him.”
Campaigning in Iowa on Monday, the Texas governor said he would consider it "treasonous" if Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke "prints more money between now and the election" in November 2012 -- a fresh sign of the political heat the central bank faces as it tries to right the stumbling U.S. economy.


"If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I don't know what y'all will do to him in Iowa, but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas," Perry said to laughter from supporters in Iowa.


"Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous, treasonous in my opinion," he said.

Asked whether Perry’s remarks were disrespectful, Obama said he would “cut him some slack” as a new candidate.

“Everybody who runs for president, it probably takes them a little bit of time before they start realizing that this isn’t like running for governor or running for senator or running for Congress, and you’ve got to be a little more careful about what you say,” Obama said on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.”

Wild Thing's comment......

This all reminds me soooo much of the last presidential campaign. When Sarah Palin was speaking the truth about Obama, things about William Ayers, about his other associations, so many things. And she was attacked for it, BUT not by any of us, we cheered her on as did all the other conservatives that wanted people to know the truth about Obama. She did not back down either. Only RINO MCCain was running around saying Obama was a man of honor....BARF!

Thank God that Perry stands his ground on what he said. IMO conservatives should all be very glad about this.


And what arrogance Obama has once again to even give a warning to Perry sheesh!


Read my lips Obama. Perry is right and I will add that YOU Obama are treasonous to our country. With your socialized medicine and the rest of your agenda.

Texas Navy SEAL nabs 2 in dog killing

Governor Rick Perry and Marcus Luttrell are a couple of friends that frequent our shop and ride with us on a regular basis. If you are not familiar with Marcus Luttrell, please read on;

Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell was born in Huntsville, Texas in 1975. A graduate of BUD/S Class 228, he was the only survivor of the fateful events of June 28, 2005 in Afghanistan. Luttrell and three teammates from SEAL Team TEN were assigned to a reconnaissance mission, operation RED WING, in the Hindu-Kush mountain region of Afghanistan. Their objective was to gather intelligence on Taliban movement in the area. Luttrell’s team was eventually discovered and outnumbered by over 200 Taliban fighters.

Petty Officer Luttrell was the only one to survive enemy contact. In the rescue mission that ensued, 16 Special Forces personnel, including 8 SEALs, died when their helicopter was shot down by Taliban fighters. It was the largest single-day loss of life in the SEALs’ history. In 2006, Petty Officer Luttrell was awarded the Navy Cross for combat heroism.

His full story is documented in his heroic account of the operation, entitled: Lone Survivor.

When Retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell's dog was taken and shot and Marcus tracked them down . The police arrested the punks and the next day Marcus Luttrell went to stay with Gov. Perry and Anita's home.


Perry said that Luttrell came to stay with him and his wife, Anita, the next day to decompress.

"He is doing fine, he has lost his best friend, but he processed that it was just some totally irresponsible punks that have no understanding of principles or values," Perry said.

Ryan's Office Denies Report He's Considering Presidential Bid





Ryan's Office Denies Report He's Considering Presidential Bid

National Journal

Rep. Paul Ryan’s office is denying a report by the Weekly Standard that the Wisconsin Republican is seriously reconsidering a presidential campaign.

“While grateful for the continued support and encouragement, Chairman Ryan has not changed his mind," Ryan spokesman Kevin Seifert said.

The Weekly Standard, whose editors have been encouraging a Ryan candidacy, quoted an anonymous Republican source saying he was “coming around” and that he currently was on vacation in Colorado mulling over a presidential bid and its effect on his family.

Ryan has previously disavowed any interest in the White House, saying, "My ego isn't big enough, and my children aren't old enough."

Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, has represented Wisconsin's First District since 1999. He's emerged as a polarizing figure this year, after unveiling a controversial budget proposal that revamps Medicare. But he remains very popular with conservatives, who applaud his efforts to reform longstanding entitlement programs.




Wild Thing's comment........

Ryan has an amazing ability to see all angles of a problem and then come up with ways to solve it . This ability isn’t limited to economics so maybe one day he will run for President, it would be historical. It is my understanding that Congressmen don’t ever become President. In all our years as a country only one won and that was in the 18th century. The same with Michele Bachmann, but she is doing really well o who knows.

I really like and respect Paul Ryan.He was absolutely awesome when he took on Obama about his obamacare and he did it all with facts. Awesome!

Gov. Perry Speaks About Wanting To Restore Military Respect






by Ben Smith ( Ben is a LIBERAL ~ Wild Thing)


Politico


Rick Perry strayed from a tribute to military service to tell an audience in Waterloo, Iowa, that he’s running in part to restore the respect of the military to its civilian leaders.

“One of the reasons that I’m running for president is I want to make sure that every young man and woman who puts on the uniform of the United States respects highly the president of the United States,” he said.


The line is a reversal of the usual pledges of respect for the military from politicians, and Perry seemed to suggest that Obama lacks the qualities of a commander-in-chief in being able to command the troops.


The line could be taken either as a slur on the military — they’re pretty much obligated to respect the president, or at least the presidency; or as a sort of validation of military doubts about civilian leadership, which isn’t exactly standard issue politics in the developed world.

But if the line is close to the edge, it may also resonate, capturing discontent with Obama that’s common among soldiers, and serving as a reminder that Perry’s the only leading Republican to have served.




From DECEMBER 2008


President Elect Barack Obama gets no respect as the incoming Commander in Chief from a poll conducted by The Army Times. 6 out of 10 active-duty service members say they are uncertain or pessimistic, according to a Military Times survey.

A lance corporal who asked not to be identified said, “Being that the Marine Corps can be sent anywhere in the world with the snap of his fingers, nobody has confidence in this guy as commander in chief,”

During Christmas, Obama visited Marines in Pearl Harbor, while they were eating their Christmas dinner.


Anecdotal reports say Obama was not greeted with any enthusiastic applause in fact it was pretty silent.




.



Wild Thing's comment.....

Rick Perry is a veteran and his reference was with regards to the military personnel who are having to serve under a President they do not respect. Loose lips sink ships and if our current administration had not outed Seal Team 6 those brave young soldiers would still be alive today.

Michele Bachmann Wins Iowa Straw Poll






AP


Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), an Iowa native, won the Iowa Republican Straw Poll today in Ames, Iowa. Ron Paul was second and former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty placed third.


Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann won a test vote of Iowans on Saturday, a show of popularity and organizational strength for the tea party favorite five months before the state’s caucuses kick off the GOP presidential nominating season.

The result is the first indication of what Iowans think of the field of Republicans competing for the chance to challenge President Barack Obama next fall. But it’s hardly predictive of who will win the winter Iowa contest, much less the party nod or the White House.

Rather, Saturday’s outcome suggests that Bachmann has a certain level of support and, perhaps even more important, the strongest get-out-the-vote operation and widest volunteer base in a state whose caucuses require those elements.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul finished a close second while former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty placed a distant third.



Wild Thing's comment.......

Congratulations and well deserved. She has worked very hard in Iowa.

I like Michele, I just don't think she can get enough support to get Obama out of office. If she would keep with facts too is important. Her love for America is great and I will always remember how she took on Geithner about the Dollar that time.

Perry Wins Straw Poll … In Alabama



The Daily Caller

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is the winner of today’s Alabama — that’s Alabama – straw poll, according to party officials there.

Perry, who announced his candidacy for president as a Republican on Saturday, won with 46 percent of the vote. He was the keynote speaker at state GOP party’s annual summer dinner this weekend.

Herman Cain placed second with 21 percent, followed by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who attracted 16 percent of the vote, according to a release.


New GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry wins Alabama straw poll

FOX News


Texas Governor Rick Perry, who announced Saturday his intention to run for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, was selected the winner of a presidential preference straw poll held Saturday by the Alabama Republican Party.

The party, in a statement Saturday to FOX6 News, said 46 percent of the state GOP executive committee picked Perry as a write-in candidate during their meeting at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex.

"Let me be clear that this is not an endorsement by the Alabama Republican Party," said Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party, in the statement. "We were interested to see how the current field stands with Republican voters in Alabama. We are thankful for all of the candidates who participated by submitting videos and campaign materials for us to review."

Businessman Herman Cain received 21% and former Governor Mitt Romney received 16% of the vote. All declared candidates who had received at least 2% in three national polls were included. Listed on the ballot were Michelle Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. The only names receiving write-in votes were Rick Perry and Sarah Palin.


Perry was in Birmingham Friday night and spoke to Republicans.

"The entire weekend was a rousing success. We had 1,500 activists at our Annual Summer Dinner on Friday night to hear Texas Governor Rick Perry," continued Armistead. "Governor Perry gave a stirring, conservative speech that obviously resonated very well with the attendees."


The vote comes on the same day as the far better-publicized Iowa Straw Poll in Ames, Iowa.

Perry: 101
Cain: 47
Romney: 36
Gingrich: 11
Bachmann, Paul, Pawlenty, Santorum, Johnson, Palin: All in single digits

Texas Governor Rick Perry Announces 2012 Bid for President of United States ~ FULL SPEECH Videos


Rick Perry "I Declare My Candidacy For President Of The United States" PART 1


Texas Governor Rick Perry Announces 2012 Bid for President of United States



.


Rick Perry "I Declare My Candidacy For President Of The United States" pt.2


In a rousing speech in Charleston, South Carolina today, Texas Gov. Rick Perry declared his candidacy for President of the United States.


Governor Perry asks for a moment of silence to honor the members of our Armed Forces who bravely put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms.

"America is not broken, Washington is broken"

"The change we seek will never emanate out of Washington. It will come from the windswept prairies of middle America; the farms and factories across this great land; the hearts and minds of God-fearing Americans -- who will not accept a future that is less than our past, who will not be consigned a fate of LESS freedom in exchange for MORE government. We do not have to accept our current circumstances. We will change them. We're Americans. That's what we do. WE roll up our sleeves, WE get to work, WE make things better."

“I will work every day to make Washington, D.C. as inconsequential in your lives as I can.”


“Revitalizing the economy is our country’s most urgent need. Stopping the generational theft posed by record debt is our long-term mission.”


“It’s time to get America working again. It’s time to give a pink slip to the current residents of the White House.”

“We don’t need a President who apologizes for America.”

“Our President has insulted our friends.”....... yes like Israel, our greatest friend in the Middle East.~ Wild Thing


“At age 8, I was blessed to meet my future wife, Anita Thigpen, at a piano recital. We had our first date eight years later. And she finally agreed to marry me 16 years after that I'm persistent.”

“I am also the product of a place called Paint Creek, a community too small to be called a town along the rolling plains of West Texas.”


"It's time to get America working again," Perry said, arguing that "Recovery is a meaningless word if the bank has foreclosed on your home."

While Perry spent some of his speech discussing his own record, he spent most of his time attacking the current occupant of the White House. He criticized Mr. Obama's "unbridled fixation" on spending and suggested the president's economic policies have "prolonged our national misery, not alleviated it."

"You cannot win the future by selling America off to foreign creditors," he said. "We cannot afford four more years of this rudderless leadership." The time had come, he added, to "stop the generational theft."

Change in America, Perry said, begins not with Washington but with the American people, "patriots who will not be consigned to a fate of less freedom in exchange for more government."


He said people object to an administration “that sees its role as spending our children’s inheritance on failed economic theories that have given us record debt and left far too many unemployed, threatening not only our economy, but our security. Our reliance on foreign creditors and sources of energy not only compromises our national sovereignty, but jeopardizes our national future.”

"We are indignant about leaders that do not listen and spend money faster than they can print it," Perry said, complaining of "central planners" who "downgrade our future and micromanage our lives."

"I'll work every day to try to make Washington, D.C., as inconsequential in your life as I can," he added.


Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s Presidential Website has gone “Live” this morning, with a written message from Perry explaining why he is running for President of the United States. Perry will speak shortly in South Carolina and announce he’s in the race:


Wild Thing's comment......

I love it when Sarah does this and in Gov. Perry's speech he did it too. He really took Obama Obama to the woodshed. In fact he also took Obama's entire administration to task.

Perry like Sarah has charisma and that is also what Reagan had. IMO that is important during a campaign and as President. Obama never had that and never will, he had a media as his bride, the bride of frankenstein and they promoted himi as a Mesiah that was supposed to be a great speaker. WE ALL KNOW he was NOT and could not even rate being a good speaker, he only read his teleprompter that is not being a good speaker. He only had passion in his hate for our country and his hate for all things American.


One of Gov. Perry's biggest endorsement is from my Texas brother and his wife who are dyed in the wool Democrats. They are fed up with “No-bama” (their words) .

I love texas as you all know. One of the many things about Texas is Texans never get just pissed...they fight back.
Perry will give payback in spades. Remember G.W. Bush after 9-11 he went after the terrorists, unlike what Clinton did after the first attack on the Towers during his presidency.


We have a few awesome people running now. And I will only be counting those that have put their hat in the ring. That have stepped forward.


Here are my favorites;


Gov. Rick Perry gets a yes from me.


Herman Cain is nothing less then awesome. I LOVE to hear him speak. Reality says he cannot win, but gosh I would love for him to be in a Republican administration maybe something dealing with the Treasury or something. He should not be pushed aside when he has soooo much to offer. He too has has charisma and I love his personality, his smile lights up a room.


Michele Bachmann is good but too much of the time she misquotes information that can so easily be checked out. Not only facts but also about other candidates. I wish she would stop doing that, it makes it hard to trust a person that does this kind of thing. Argue with the other candidates is fine, but use actual facts about that person that are true not made up along the way. I am NO fan of Pawlenty at all not even a little and Michele said some things about his bills he passed or was for that were not true.

Romney no way, Romney care etc.

Pawlenty no thank you very much.

Santorum he won't win, a good man and a conservative to be sure but he would make an awesome Senator if he would only do that instead.

Ron Paul forgetabout it. ( said with best Mafia accent ) haha

Newt, no thanks.


Huntsman, nope for many reasons.


FULL Transcript of his speech.......... CONTINUE HERE

It’s sure good to be back in the Palmetto State, in South Carolina. I enjoy coming to places where people elect folks like Nikki Haley, true conservatives. And also where they love the greatest fighting force on the face of the earth…the United States Military.

And I want to take a moment and ask you to just take a silence, think about those young Navy SEALs and the other special operators who gave it all in the service of their country. Just take a moment to say Thank you, Lord, that we have those kind of selfless, sacrificial men and women. Their sacrifice was immeasurable, their dedication profound, and we will never, ever forget them.

I stand before you today as the governor of Texas. But I also stand before you the son of two tenant farmers, Ray Perry, who came home after 35 bombing missions over Europe to work his little corner of land out there, and Amelia who made sure my sister Milla and I had everything that we needed, including hand-sewing my clothes until I went off to college.

I am also the product of a place called Paint Creek. Doesn’t have a zip code. It’s too small to be called a town along the rolling plains of Texas. We grew dryland cotton and wheat, and when I wasn’t farming or attending Paint Creek Rural School, I was generally over at Troop 48 working on my Eagle Scout award.

Around the age of 8, I was blessed – didn’t realize it, but I was blessed to meet my future wife, Anita Thigpen, at a piano recital. We had our first date eight years later. And she finally agreed to marry me 16 years after that. Nobody says I am not persistent.

There is no greater way to live life than with someone you love, and my first love is with us today, my lovely wife Anita. We’re also blessed to have two incredible children, Griffin and Sydney, and they are also with us today, and our wonderful daughter-in-law Meredith. I’d just like to introduce those two. Thank you.

What I learned growing up on the farm was a way of life that was centered on hard work, and on faith and on thrift. Those values have stuck with me my whole life. But it wasn’t until I graduated from Texas A&M University and joined the United States Air Force, flying C-130’s all around the globe, that I truly appreciated the blessings of freedom.

To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan, I realized that the United States of America really is the last great hope of mankind. What I saw was systems of government that elevated rulers at the expense of the people. Socialist systems cloaked maybe in good intentions but were delivering misery and stagnation. And I learned that not everyone values life like we do in America, or the rights that are endowed to every human being by a loving God.

You see, as Americans we’re not defined by class, and we will never be told our place. What makes our nation exceptional is that anyone, from any background, can climb the highest of heights. As Americans, we don’t see the role of government as guaranteeing outcomes, but allowing free men and women to flourish based on their own vision, their hard work and their personal responsibility. And as Americans, we realize there is no taxpayer money that wasn’t first earned by the sweat and toil of one of our citizens.

That’s why we reject this President’s unbridled fixation on taking more money out of the wallets and pocketbooks of American families and employers and giving it to a central government. “Spreading the wealth” punishes success while setting America on course to greater dependency on government. Washington’s insatiable desire to spend our children’s inheritance on failed “stimulus” plans and other misguided economic theories have given us record debt and left us with far too many unemployed.

But of course, now we’re told we are in recovery. Yeah.

But this sure doesn’t feel like a recovery to more than nine percent of Americans out there who are unemployed, or the sixteen percent of African Americans and 11 percent of Hispanics in the same position, or the millions more who can only find part-time work, or those who have stopped even looking for a job.

One in six work-eligible Americans cannot find a full-time job. That is not a recovery. That is an economic disaster.

If you think about it, for those Americans who do have full-time jobs, they aren’t experiencing economic recovery with the rising fuel costs and the food prices that are going up. Recovery is a meaningless word if the bank has foreclosed on your home, if you are under water on your mortgage, or if you are up to the max on your credit card debt. Those Americans know that this President and his big-spending, big-government policies have prolonged our national misery, not alleviated it.

And what do we say to our children? Y’all figure it out? Don’t worry, Washington’s created 17 debt and entitlement commissions in 30 years, but the fact of the matter is they just didn’t have the courage to make the decisions to allow you to have the future that you actually deserve? That Washington wouldn’t even make modest entitlement program reforms in this last debate? And the President even refused to lay out a plan, for fear of the next election? How can the wealthiest nation in the history of civilization fail so miserably to pay its bills? How does that happen?

Well, Mr. President, let us tell you something: you can’t win the future by selling America off to foreign creditors.

We cannot afford four more years of this rudderless leadership. Last week, that leadership failed, and the tax and spend and borrow agenda of this President led to the first ever downgrade of the credit rating of the United States of America.

In reality though, this is just the most recent downgrade. The fact is for nearly three years President Obama has been downgrading American jobs. He’s been downgrading our standing in the world. He’s been downgrading our financial stability. He’s been downgrading our confidence, and downgrading the hope for a better future for our children. That’s a fact.

His policies are not only a threat to this economy, so are his appointees – a threat. You see he stacked the National Labor Relations Board with anti-business cronies who want to dictate to a private company, Boeing, where they can build a plant. No president, no president should kill jobs in South Carolina, or any other state for that matter, simply because they choose to go to a right-to-work state.

You see, when the Obama Administration is not stifling economic growth with over-regulation, they are achieving the same through their reckless spending. Debt is not only a threat to our economy, but also to our security.

America’s standing in the world is in peril, not only because of disastrous economic policies, but from the incoherent muddle that they call foreign policy. Our president has insulted our friends and he’s encouraged our enemies, thumbing his nose at traditional allies like Israel. He seeks to dictate new borders for the Middle East and the oldest democracy there, Israel, while he is an abject failure in his constitutional duty to protect our borders in the United States.

His foreign policy seems to be based on alienating our traditional allies, while basing our domestic agenda on importing those failed Western European social values. We don’t need a president who apologizes for America. We need a president who protects and projects those values.

Look, it’s pretty simple: we’re going to stand with those who stand with us, and we will vigorously defend our interests. And those who threaten our interests, harm our citizens – we will simply not be scolding you, we will defeat you.

Our nation cannot and it must not endure four more years of aimless foreign policy. We cannot and must not endure four more years of rising unemployment, rising taxes, rising debt, rising energy dependence on nations that intend us harm.

It is time to get America working again. To get citizens – to get our citizens working in good jobs and getting the government to working for the people again.

Page one of any economic plan to get America working is to give a pink slip to the current resident in the White House.

Listen, we just got to get back to the basic truths of economic success. As Governor, I’ve had to deal with the consequences of this national recession. In 2003, and again this year, my state faced billions of dollars in budget shortfalls. But we worked hard, we made tough decisions, we balanced our budget. Not by raising taxes, but by setting priorities and cutting government spending. It can and it must be done in Washington, DC.

Dr. Schwertner (State Representative, R-Williamson County, TX), we have led Texas based on some just really pretty simple guiding principles. One is don’t spend all of the money. Two is keeping the taxes low and under control. Three is you have your regulatory climate fair and predictable. Four is reform the legal system so frivolous lawsuits don’t paralyze employers that are trying to create jobs.

Over the years, we have followed this recipe to produce the strongest economy in the nation. Since June of 2009, Texas is responsible for more than 40 percent of all of the new jobs created in America.

Now think about that. We’re home to less than 10 percent of the population in America, but forty percent of all the new jobs were created in that state.

I’ve cut taxes. I have delivered historic property tax reductions. I was the first governor since World War II to cut general revenue spending in our state budget. We passed lawsuit reform, including just this last session a “loser pays” law to stop the frivolous lawsuits that were happening.

And I know I’ve talked a lot about Texas here in the last little bit. I’m a Texan and proud of it. But first, and foremost, I’m an incredibly proud American.

And I know something: America is not broken. Washington, D.C., is broken!

We need balanced budgets. We need lower taxes. We need less regulation. And we need civil justice reform – those same four principles. Our country’s most urgent need is to revitalize our economy, stop the generational theft that is going on with this record debt.

I come to South Carolina because I will not sit back and accept the path that America is on. Because a great country requires a better direction. Because a renewed nation needs a new president.

It is time to get America working again. And that’s why, with the support of my family, and an unwavering belief in the goodness of America, I declare to you today as a candidate for President of the United States.

It’s time for America to believe again. It’s time to believe that the promise of our future is far greater than even our best days behind us. It’s time to believe again in the potential of private enterprise, set free from the shackles of overbearing federal government. And it’s time to truly restore our standing in the world, and renew our faith in freedom as the best hope for peace in this world that’s beset with strife.

The change we seek will never emanate out of Washington, D.C. It will come from the windswept prairies of Middle America, the farms and factories across this great land, from the hearts and minds of the goodhearted Americans who will accept not a future that is less than our past, patriots – patriots who will not be consigned to a fate of less freedom in exchange for more government.

We do not have to accept our current circumstances. We will change them. We are Americans. That’s what we do. We roll up our sleeves. We go to work. We fix things.

We stand up and proudly proclaim that Washington is not our caretaker and we reject the state that, in Margaret Thatcher’s words, she said a state that takes too much from us in order to do too much for us. We will not stand for that any longer.

We’re dismayed at the injustice that nearly half of all Americans don’t even pay any income tax. And you know the liberals out there are saying that we need to pay more. We are indignant about leaders who do not listen and spend money faster than they can print it.

In America, the people are not subjects of government. The government is subject to the people. And it is up to us, to this present generation of Americans, to take a stand for freedom, to send a message to Washington that we’re taking our future back from the grips of central planners who would control our healthcare, who would spend our treasure, who downgrade our future and micro-manage our lives.

It is time to limit and simplify the taxes in this country. We have to quit spending money we don’t have. We need to get our fiscal house in order and restore our good credit. And we will repeal this President’s misguided, one-size-fits-all government healthcare plan immediately.

We’ll create jobs. We’ll get America working again. We’ll create jobs and we’ll build wealth, we’ll truly educate and innovate in science, and in technology, engineering and math. We’ll create the jobs and the progress needed to get America working again.

And I’ll promise you this: I’ll work every day to make Washington, D.C. as inconsequential in your life as I can. And at the same time, we’ll be freeing our families and small businesses and states from the burdensome and costly federal government so those groups can create, innovate and succeed.

I believe in America. I believe in Her purpose and Her promise. I believe Her best days have not yet been lived. I believe Her greatest deeds are reserved for the generations to come. With the help and the courage of the American people, we will get our country working again. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.

Newt Gingrich Tells Off Fox News’ Chris Wallace for “Mickey Mouse” Gotcha Questions



Newt Gingrich Slams Fox News’ Chris Wallace for “Mickey Mouse” Gotcha Questions During GOP Presidential Debate in Iowa

Newt Gingrich gave a fiery response to a “gotcha” question from Fox News’ Chris Wallace about his campaign difficulties. Gingrich lowered the boom on him.



.


Wild Thing's comment.......

LOL he really let Chris have it.



Also here are the names Pelosi added to the list for the Super Committee.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi named three Democrats to the new deficit-cutting committee on Thursday, finalizing the list of 12 lawmakers who will try this fall to find ways to reduce the budget deficit by at least $1.2 trillion.

Ms. Pelosi (D., Calif.) tapped three lawmakers known for protecting entitlement programs: Reps. Xavier Becerra (D., Calif.), Chris Van Hollen (D., Md.), and James Clyburn (D., S.C.).


"We must achieve a 'grand bargain' that reduces the deficit by addressing our entire budget, while strengthening Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security," Ms. Pelosi said in a statement. The group should "make decisions regarding investments, cuts and revenues and their timing to stimulate growth while reducing the deficit."

Eight Things You Ought To Know Before You Start Writing Stories About Rick Perry



Eight things you ought to know before you start writing stories about Rick Perry.


Texas Monthly


Here we go again. As you know, Rick Perry, the governor of Texas, is contemplating a presidential run, which means that any day now, your boss will be sending you down here to take the measure of the man. Though he managed to avoid the 2012 spotlight longer than any other candidate, Perry, the nation’s longest-serving governor, has lately become, in the words of a recent NPR report, “the eight-hundred-pound gorilla on the sidelines of this race.” The trickle of stories about him has become a stream, and the minute Perry declares his candidacy, that stream will become a flood, a flood that will carry you straight to Austin. I am writing you this note in the hope that it will help you avoid the political and sociological clichés that Texas is subjected to every time one of our politicians seeks the national stage.


It’s an experience we’re all too familiar with. A Texan has occupied the White House in 17 of the past 48 years—just over a third of the time. Texas has become an incubator for presidents, as Virginia and Ohio were in America’s distant past. I’ll grant you that the presidents we have sent to Washington, from LBJ to 
George W. Bush, have not always served as the best advertisements for Texas. Nevertheless, we have endured a disproportionate amount of bad writing about our state from journalists who don’t know very much about the place, and I for one can’t bear to suffer through another campaign of it.


So please, heed this advice. Rick Perry, as you have no doubt already discovered, is not the easiest man to write about. He is secretive and leery of the media (sometimes to the point of hostility), and he has a strategically valuable knack for being underestimated by his critics. I have been writing about him since the eighties, when he began his career in the Texas Legislature. Along the way I have learned a few things, which I have arranged in this handy list of Eight Points to Keep in Mind When Writing About Rick Perry.


1. Perry is not George Bush. Don’t assume that because Bush and Perry served together in the Capitol, or because they’re both Republican Texans who wear boots, the two men have a lot in common. They don’t. As governor, Bush positioned himself as “a uniter, not a divider,” championing education as one of his main priorities. Perry has been the opposite kind of chief executive: dismissive of Democrats and fond of political maneuvers that put the heat on moderates within his own party. And in the legislative session that just wrapped up, he presided over a budget that cut $4 billion from public schools. The cultural differences are striking too. Perry, the son of a Big Country cotton farmer, is at ease with a populist tea party message; W., the scion of a political dynasty, always seemed more comfortable with the country club set. They have followed starkly different paths. When W. began his political career, he had a famous name, access to his father’s huge national fund-raising base, and the backing of the establishment wing of the Republican party. As a late arrival in the Republican ranks, Perry had no fund-raising base and little name identification. He had no choice but to gravitate to the conservative wing of the GOP, where he could prove up his conservative bona fides. Nor is there any love lost between the two men. When Perry ran for lieutenant governor, in 1998, Bush’s camp wanted everyone on the ticket to run positive races; the Perry team defied the order, and ever since, relations have been frosty. There is one other critical difference. Bush lost his first race, for Congress. Perry has won every race he’s ever run.


2. It’s not a big deal that Perry was once a Democrat. To suggest otherwise will make you look foolish. When Perry was elected to the statehouse, in 1985, conservative Democrats ran the Legislature. In 1989, realizing that a conservative had little future in the party, Perry switched to the GOP. He has been a rock-solid Republican ever since and has driven the state party further to the right. Only twice has he made strategic errors that brought him into conflict with his hard-right base. One was an edict that twelve-year-old girls be inoculated against cervical cancer (it was quickly overturned); another was his promotion of a giant system of toll roads called the Trans-Texas Corridor, which stirred up significant opposition from landowners. These two bobbles aside, Perry has a genius for sensing where his base is on any given issue.


3. Perry is cannier than you think he is. Perry revels in political plays that are initially misunderstood by the press and his critics. Take his secession “gaffe” on tax day 2009, when he responded to a TV reporter’s question with an acknowledgment that if the federal government continued to interfere with Texas, the state might have to leave the union someday. His response may have repelled Democrats and independents, but it hit a nerve among conservatives and led to his shellacking of Kay Bailey Hutchison in the 2010 Republican primary for governor.


4. Texas is not a “weak governor” state. A common misconception. It used to be true, but during his historic governorship, Perry has reinvented the office as a power center. This may be his greatest accomplishment. Yes, our state constitution, written the year before Reconstruction ended, created a weak governor’s office (as did most constitutions of the states of the former Confederacy). We had two-year terms (the Legislature changed it to four-year terms beginning with the 1974 election) and a fragmented executive department with power divided among the governor, the lieutenant governor, the comptroller, the land and agriculture commissioners, the attorney general, and the railroad commission. But Perry has used his appointment power to install political allies in every state agency, effectively establishing a Cabinet form of government and making him vastly more powerful than any of his predecessors. In this regard, the Texas politician he most resembles is LBJ, who, Robert Caro reports, once told an assistant, “I do understand power, whatever else may be said about me. I know where to look for it and how to use it.” Rick Perry, to a tee.


5. Perry is not a male hair model. The late Molly Ivins coined the nickname Governor Goodhair, and it has stuck, especially with ­liberals and journalists from up north. It is true that Perry has a much-remarked-upon coif, but don’t let this lead you to assume that he’s soft, or feckless, like that other recent walking shampoo ad, John Edwards. Perry is a hard man. He is the kind of politician who would rather be feared than loved—or respected. And he has gotten his wish. Perry does not have many friends in the ­Legislature.


6. Perry is from the middle of nowhere. The first place you need to go to understand Perry is Paint Creek, where he grew up. Paint Creek is not a town. It’s a watercourse that runs through the cotton fields of southern Haskell County. Perry’s parents were tenant farmers, and not just tenant farmers but dryland farmers, which is as hard as farming gets. In a June 2010 interview with TEXAS MONTHLY editor Jake Silverstein, Perry described an incident involving a new couch that his parents, who “rarely ever bought anything,” had just purchased. “There were places in our house that you could see outside through the cracks by the windows,” the governor recalled, “and this dust storm came in and there was a layer of dust all over that new couch. And it just, you know, kind of—it was a hard life for them.” In the interview, Perry also described taking baths in the number two washtub and using an outhouse until his father built indoor plumbing in his early years. “We were rich,” Perry said, “but not in material things. I had miles and miles of pasture, a Shetland pony, and a dog. . . . I spent a lot of time just alone with my dog. A lot.”


7. Perry is an Aggie. Like many Texans with rural roots and sympathies, Perry attended Texas A&M University. This is the other place you need to go to understand him. Of course, it has changed dramatically, so you’ll have to envision it as it was when Perry was there, around 1970. A&M was uncompromising in those days. There was a saying, regarding the road to College Station, that was directed at students who resisted the A&M military culture: “Highway 6 runs both ways.” You either bought into the school’s traditions or you didn’t. Perry bought all the way in, becoming a yell leader. To this day, Perry’s style on the stump is that of the Aggie yell leader (“Are you fired up?”).


8. Don’t discount the luck factor. It is uncanny how often good fortune has been in ­Perry’s corner throughout his political career. His opponents self-destruct, as Jim High­­tower did in 1990, when Perry, a big underdog, won his first statewide race, for agriculture commissioner, and as Kay Bailey Hutchison did in 2010. In 2006, when he was at his most vulnerable, Hutchison opted not to challenge him. Perry got only 39 percent of the vote, but because there were four major candidates in the race, he won with a plurality. This spring, he lost two top aides to the Gingrich-for-president campaign, only to see Gingrich self-destruct and the aides return with national campaign experience. The list goes on and on. If you look at Perry’s career, it seems that fate is always arranging the universe so that its favorite son will be in the right place at the right time.


So there you have it. In closing, I would like to request that you please do your best to avoid tin-ear clichés about barbecue, cattle, oil, football, and the Alamo. Remember, this is an urban state of 25 million people. We don’t go to sleep at night dreaming of William Barret Travis drawing a line in the sand. We do admire our rural history, as this month’s cover attests, but our vitality is in the cities. Enjoy your visit, best of luck, and please get it right this time.


Yours truly,

Paul Burka

Wild Thing's comment........

I thought this was a really good write up about Gov. Rick Perry and has a ton of information in it that I did not know before.

We know a lot about Sarah and I thought it would be good to learn more about Gov. Perry.


We will see if they both run for President or only one of them. As of today neither Sarah nor Rick Perry has entered.

CNBC's Rick Santelli: ‘If It Wasn’t for the Tea Party We Would Have Been Rated BBB!’



CNBC's Rick Santelli: ‘If It Wasn’t for the Tea Party We Would Have Been Rated BBB!’

CNBC’s Rick Santelli gives a fiery reaction to Obama and the Democrats’ attempts to blame the U.S. credit downgrade on the Tea Party:

Rick Santelli reacts to President Obama's blame game when it comes to the downgrade of the United States of America's credit rating. Santelli says that if it wasn't for the tea party movement, America's credit would have been downgraded to BBB.

He also responds to the argument that we have a revenue problem by comparing it to if his wife spending 30% more money then telling him to get 2 more jobs.


“Blame the Tea Party? Geez, no wonder Kerry did so well in an election. If it wasn’t for the Tea Party, they would have passed the debt ceiling thumbs up. We would have been rated triple B!”




Wild Thing's comment......

LOL I LOVE Santelli and his passion, he is awesome!

May GOD BLESS RICK SANTELLI!!! He has been a True American Hero!

If this were the days of the American Revolution I bet the liberal Dems would be supporting and feeling sorry for old King George. They would be ranting and blaming the discontents for the sufferings of the war fought to make us free from the bondage of serfdom and taxation. And, after our success they would be faulting the Revolutionary Army and George Washington for having saved this country from tyranny and freeing it for our people, our independence, our growth, and our future.

Small Business Owner Says Obama Should Apologize for Economy ~ A Must See Video!





From Neil Cavuto's program on FoxNews


"The definition of confidence means, 'I can rely'. I can't rely on anything. Everything so far has been a myriad of lies and manipulation and none of it's been true. This is what the business community has been saying for over a year."

Cavuto asks, what are small businesses going to do?: "Why (as a small businessperson) should I take the risk when no one else is taking the risk?...We pay most of the taxes, and you call us what? Why not a 'thank you' note. You want me to hire, you want me to take more risk, you want me to go farther into debt...why should I do that?"

Cavuto asks, what should Obama say if he were to address the nation?: "I apologize! I apologize because I did not lead this country to success. He's the first (president) that I known of to have this (downgrade). He's not going to be known as the first black president. He's going to be known as the president who had a downgrade."

Cavuto says, Obama would argue that he inherited a mess: "He did. Doesn't matter. I inhireit a mess every day as the CEO of a company! That is my job title: to fix problems and get people to work in harmony for one common goal...the common goal is that this country be a safe and secure country...this is the American Dream! What are you doing...get people together, not vacation!"

Fantastic and a huge thank you to this woman for speaking out.

Rush Limbaugh: "As Far As 2012 Goes, Obama Is Now Debt Man Walking"




"You may not want to admit that this is being done on purpose, but if you sit down and spend just 15 minutes analysing what has happened in the last 2 1/2 years, I don't know how you can come to any other conclusion...As far as 2012 goes, Obama is debt-man walking"


The rest of what he said is here in the COMPLETE TRANSCRIPT:

Obamageddon, Barackalypse Now! Bam is "Debt Man Walking" in 2012


"BEGIN TRANSCRIPT



RUSH: Does anybody now doubt that this is on purpose? I mean, after all, Barack Obama inherits a AAA credit rating from George W. Bush, and look what he does to it. Obama is always running around complaining and whining and moaning about all that he inherited from George W. Bush. Well, he inherited a AAA credit rating, an unemployment rate of 5.7%. Does anybody doubt that this is on purpose? Well, look, my credit rating doesn't suck. There are a lot of individual Americans whose credit ratings aren't in trouble. The United States has never been in this position -- and the next thing that's gonna happen is that Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and others are going to be downgraded.

What are the Democrats doing? Blaming the referees! Blaming Standard & Poor's! That always changes the outcome, doesn't it? Blame the refs. You people in Seattle? The Seahawks, Super Bowl, 2005, Steelers? Blame the refs. Last time I looked the Steelers still won the game. So go ahead and blame Standard & Poor's all you want, Democrats. Now they're blaming the military! Barney Frank's blaming the military. Rumsfeld was on our DC affiliate this morning, WMAL. You know our military spending is 4% of GDP right now? Military spending is 4% of GDP. During the Eisenhower administration in the fifties, post WWII, defense spending was 10% of GDP. Today it's 4% of GDP, and Barney Frank and the Democrats are trying to say it's the military's fault that we've been downgraded.

This is the fault of the Democrat Party. Greetings, my friends, I am Rush Limbaugh: America's Anchorman fighting the rising forces of socialism. They want us to believe now that France is better than we are? And of course you can talk about S&P all you want, folks, but the real problem that we've got and the real referee we're dealing with are the loan sharks, and that's the ChiComs. The ChiComs are dictating the terms of this. They are our number one lender; and, you know, ask the banks about what happened when Trump was having trouble paying them back. What did they have to do? If Trump went down, they went down. Well, the ChiComs are in much the similar situation.

This is just so outrageous. Even my old buddy Pete Wehner who worked for Rove in the White House and who has been reluctant... Pete's the epitome of fairness and evenhandedness and so forth. Even Pete, at his Commentary magazine blog today, said this: "It reinforces, perhaps, like nothing else has the impression that Obama is overseeing -- and some respects engineering -- the decline of the American republic." There can be no doubt! It now just takes the courage to admit it. This is why I said, "I hope he fails," because I didn't want to see this happen to our country. I am mad and I am depressed at the same time over what happened to the SEALs in Afghanistan.

Folks, this is not who we are.

This country today, as constituted, is not who we are. Now, sometimes that phrase is incorporated when some actor or Hollywood type will get caught in an embarrassing situation, and while being caught in the act of whatever it is, say, "This is not who I am." Yes, it is who you are. You were doing it! Well, this is not who we are. This legitimately is not who we are. We are not, we were never intended to be a nation in decline. We have a president that's overseeing -- and Pete's right here: Engineering -- the decline of the American republic. I'm glad that somebody is finally starting to echo this. Just like... Snerdley, what year did I do my April Fool's thing, "tax the poor"? That was 1990 some odd, right?

It was the early 1990s, and the whole point -- even though it was an April Fool's joke, the whole point of it -- was that a rising percentage of Americans were not paying taxes, not just the poor, and now we're up to 48% of the American people have no skin in the game, not paying taxes. In 1993, 1994, I, El Rushbo, got the ball rolling with this whole notion of tax the poor -- and even though I did it on April Fool's and as a partial April Fool's joke, of course people fell for it. It was almost as effective as when I endorsed Bill Clinton that day for ten minutes, and then denied it to every caller thereafter. I said, "No, I didn't endorse Clinton." "I just heard you!" "That was in my youth. You can't hold me accountable for things I did in my youth," to try to illustrate what a liar the guy was.


So I'm simply trying to point out here that this is all being done on purpose, and it's tragic, and it just ticks me off. When Barney Frank sits over there and starts talking about how we need to cut defense, he is singing from the ChiCom hymnal. They want us to cut our defense spending, too! Now, contrary to what the Democrats are saying, Standard & Poor's is not saying we're not taxed enough; they're saying we're spending too much -- and I'll tell you something else, and I have written this to a bunch of people over the weekend. Another thing I'm ticked off about is this stupid debt deal. Remember last week on Wednesday, after Obama received the new spending authority in that debt deal we spent $259 billion in one day.

We went $259 billion in debt in one day which was more than the cuts over ten years are gonna end up being in the debt deal. Now, before the debt deal started, before it was signed, I told you the Republicans were operating out of fear.We were told that if we did not sign that debt deal, what? What were we told? Let me ask you. We were told that our credit would be downgraded, that we might go into default, and that the Republicans would be blamed for it. Okay, so we did the debt deal. What happened? Our credit has been downgraded, we haven't gone into default, but the Republicans are being blamed for it, and the military is being blamed for it! So an opportunity to sit there and do the right thing, once again, was squandered because of fear. George Patton wrote a poem in 1945 entitled, "(I am) Fear."

I have it here, and at some point during the program today I'm gonna read it to you as only I, America's Anchorman, can. He was paid $250 by Cosmopolitan magazine, I think it was, to write this poem -- 250 bucks back in the forties -- and it is perfect. Tax the Poor was April 1st, 1991. That's what being on the cutting edge of societal evolution is all about. Taxing the poor. I suggested it in April 1st of 1991, and of course the whole point of it was that a rising tide of Americans were not paying for what they were getting. And of course I was castigated from coast to coast for it. And here we are 20 years later. (interruption) It did make the news! Oh, yeah, it made the national news. Taxing the poor made national news, of course it did.

Now, 20 years comes along and goes by and I understand there are other people out there claiming they are responsible for all the attention to do it now. Fine and dandy, but folks, (long sigh) I can't tell you as a proud, patriotic, heartfelt, God-do-I-love-this-country American, how mad I am at what is being done while everybody sits around and watches it. You may not want to admit that this is being done on purpose, but if you sit down and you spend just 15 minutes analyzing what has happened in the last two and a half years, I don't know how you can come to any other conclusion. In the last two and a half years we've had plenty of time to assess what hasn't been working and change it. Instead, we have doubled down in what hasn't been working.

We have doubled and tripled what hasn't been working. We piled what doesn't work on top of what doesn't work, on top of what doesn't work. The old definition of "insanity" is "doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result." We've got it! We have insanity at the upper levels of our government. So now we know what Obama got for his birthday: A downgrade of our credit rating, probably exactly what he wanted in his heart of hearts. Has he said anything about it? No. What's the market today? Ha! We're down just a measly 304 today. The futures last night had us down 290 at the opening bell. So we're down a measly 304.


So Democrats, let me ask you: Are you happy now? You've finally got your hope and change. I said that I hoped he would fail, and this is exactly what I meant. But, from your perspective, from Obama's perspective, he hasn't failed. He's succeeded beyond his wildest dreams -- and now look where we are. How many of you saw the movie Planet of the Apes? Do you remember how that movie ended? Colonel George Taylor on a beach, Statue of Liberty halfway buried. New York City doesn't exist. Charlton Heston is Colonel George Taylor, "You did it. You finally did it! Damn you all to hell, you did it." That's how I feel today. That's how I felt all weekend long.

Damn it to hell, they did it!


Obamageddon. That's what we have witnessed since Friday. Obamageddon. Barackalypse Now. The only silver lining I can find is that as far as 2012 goes, Obama's a "Debt Man Walking." Anybody want to tell me he's not landslidable now? Let me repeat this as the Media Tweak of the Day: "What we have witnessed since Friday is Obamageddon, Barackalypse Now; and the only silver lining out there is that as far as 2012 goes, Obama's now Debt Man Walking." What's he gonna say? He's gonna make a speech at one o'clock. "We gotta all work together! Construction workers, go out there and rebuild America." Balanced approach? Yeah, balanced approach: Tax increases!

Where has Obama been hiding over the weekend? I know he's been playing golf. Our problem is he hasn't been playing enough golf as it turns out. But how come he's refusing to go on TV and talk about this? Shouldn't he be talking about it, maybe taking a victory lap, spiking the ball in the end zone? The NFL's back; he said he was hoping that would happen. Well, go out there. Go to some team's training camp and spike the ball in the end zone. Obama's managed to accomplish something else that's completely "unprecedented," which is one of his favorite words. This is unprecedented. Our credit rating started in 1917.

This is unprecedented. Instead, the White House is saying Obama won't dignify S&P's downgrade with a response, which just means they haven't been able to come up with one. Christina Romer has, though. She said we've been intercoursed. Our economy's intercoursed. Christina Romer, yeah. I got the sound bite. Grab audio sound bite number five. This Friday night, HBO's Real Time, that idiot, Bill Maher, talking to former chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisors Christina Romer about the economy, and Bill Maher says, "How intercoursed are we? I mean, right before the show S&P downgraded our credit rating."


ROMER: Pretty darn (bleep).

MAHER: Ooh.

AUDIENCE: (applause and laughter)

ROMER: I've been hanging around Tim Geithner too long.

AUDIENCE: (laughter)

MAHER: Why? Does he swear like a sailor?

ROMER: Oh, like a seventh grade boy.

RUSH: So our former head of the Council of Economic Advisors is going on a comedy show on
HBO to talk about how our economy is now "intercoursed," and she was one of the former economic team that helped introduce policies that led us to the point where now we're intercoursed. (interruption) What did...? (interruption) Who, Biden did? (interruption) Gore? Oh, I said Gore over the edge? I haven't heard anything about what Gore did, haven't paid any... (interruption) What did Gore do? Cursed us out? Cursed...? (interruption) Who? Cursed us, when you say...? (interruption) Oh, oh, that. Oh, that, oh, that. He's ticked off because we can't talk about the G-D climate anymore. Yeah, well, we beat that back. That's one moment of progress. We've had a AAA credit rating since 1917, all the way through World War I. The Great Depression, we had a AAA credit rating.

World War II, we had a AAA credit rating, and we lose it now, and for what? For what great purpose did we lose it? Except an ideological hatred of American capitalism and a love of class warfare, what did we lose our AAA rating for? A naked effort to get still more and more money to buy votes. A never-ending quest for power, that's why we lost our AAA credit rating. Think about it: Obama's finally managed another major accomplishment on that list he told us he had, that list that he said he'd only done about 70% so far. At long last, Obama and his fellow Democrats have finally been able to convince the world that we are just another country, after all. There's nothing exceptional about us or our economy. For crying out loud, France has a higher credit rating than we do. France! They produce cheese and perfume, for crying out loud.

Senator Marco Rubio: "This Debate Will Continue."






Wild Thing's comment......


Marco Rubio offers his parting thoughts before the Senate’s August recess. He insists this debate of the last few weeks has just begun. It’s about nine minutes long, but worth every second.

Notice how Marco can speak so beautifully, so emotionally while barely referring to notes, but our Commander In Chief, once called the greatest speaker of all time, can’t get through a sentence without his Teleprompter?

Rubio is scheduled to speak at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California during the recess.

A Must See Video Of Sen. Marco Rubio Speaking On Senate Floor Regarding Debt and No Plan From Obama and Dems For 2 1/2 Years!





Sen. Marco Rubio: "Save the Whole House or It Will All Burn Down"


On the Senate Floor Sen. Rubio discusses the debt and engages in a debate with Sen. John Kerry.

“I would love nothing more than compromise — but compromise that’s not a solution is a waste of time.."

Rubio also allowed Democrat Sen. John Kerry to interrupt him with some questions, which he handled with great ease

Rubio hit Kerry’s questions out of the park.

TRANSCRIPT:


Sen. Rubio: “Thank you, Mr. President.

“I rise here on the Senate floor today to speak on the tremendous issue that's captivated, and rightfully so, the attention of our country.

“Let me start by saying that I do not enjoy nor relish the partisan role of attack dog. I never found any fun in that. I don’t think it’s constructive. I don't intend to become that here in the Senate.

“I also have only been here for seven months, which means I haven't been here long enough to think any of the stuff that's going on is normal. And I certainly don't think any of the stuff that goes on around here too often is normal. So I think the fact that I've been here seven months has served me well in that regard.

“Let me begin if I can. One of the things that I’ve noticed this week is that Washington is full of people from all over the world and all over the country that have traveled here this week to come and watch their government at work and see the monuments of the city and found themselves in the middle of this debate.

“So I think it’s important to remind people what we're debating because although it is a difficult and important issue, it is not a complicated one to understand. It’s pretty straight forward.

“And here’s the way I would describe it the United States of America more or less -- these are rough numbers but they’re accurate – spends about $300 billion a month. It has $180 billion a month that comes to the federal government through taxes and other sources of revenue and that means that in order to meet its bills at the end of every month it needs to borrow $120 billion.

“Now, for much of the history of this country, there have been increases in the debt limit and the ability to borrow money. But what has happened over the last few years is that it's no longer a routine vote because the people who give us our credit rating are saying too much of the money that you spend every month is borrowed and we want you to show us how over the next ten years you are going to borrow less as a percentage of what you spend.

“And so that's why, for years, where the debt limit was routine vote, it no longer can be. It’s not something that was made up in some conservative think tank. But the reality that we cannot continue to borrow 40% to 41% of every penny that the government spends has brought us to this point.

“So you would think that seeing that, our government and our leaders here in both parties would react to that immediately and work on it.

“And I've heard lot of talk today about delaying tactics and delaying votes. I would argue to you that this issue has been delayed at least for the last two and a half years.

“In the two years before I even came here, this chamber neither proposed nor passed a budget. It is a startling figure that for the last two years this government has operated without a budget. So think about that. Two years have gone by without a budget. The first two years that the President was the president, no budgets.

“Some people would say, well, that's because of partisanship in Washington. Well, that's not true. In the two years before I got here, both the House and Senate were controlled by members of the Democratic Party, which are the President's party. In fact, in this chamber for at least one of those two years, 60 votes, 60 out of the 100 members here caucused with the Democrats. And as you recall, on Christmas Eve of the year 2009, they were able to pass a health care bill that was very controversial because they had the 60 votes in the President’s party.


“Over two years, no budget. In fact you know how long it has been since this chamber proposed a budget? Forget passed a budget, proposed a budget? 822 days. That’s a long time. A lot of things have happened in the last 822 days, but proposing a budget is not one of them out of this chamber.

“So then I got here – and we got here in January, seven months have passed, still no budget. Again, not budget passed, proposed, offered. Here's our budget. Still no budget. 822 Days and every single day that I've been here.

“Now, in the last seven days on this debt debate, we have finally seen a proposal from the esteemed senator from Nevada, the majority leader. You would think, has he brought it to the floor to vote? Not until last night. So, again, offered a proposal over the weekend and still for six days we sat around and what did we do around here? Nothing. It was never brought to a vote.

“You would think these issues would have been worked on in January, February, March -- nothing. This chamber has done nothing. You talk about delay tactics? They've been delaying for two and a half years.

“Now the President doesn't have the luxury of some of these things. He has to propose a budget by law, and he did. Let me tell you how ridiculous the budget was. Not a single member of this Senate voted for it, including the Democrats. It is a budget that didn't lead with the debt limit; in fact, it increased the debt. That's how absurd the budget was.

“Where is the President plan? We haven't seen it. We haven't seen it. Here's the President's plan: a blank sheet of paper. He doesn't have a plan. He hasn't offered a plan. Again, if this were a Republican president, I would say the same thing.

“I do not understand how an issue of this magnitude, of generational importance, the President of the United States has not offered a plan. If someone has seen the president's plan, please send it to me because no one else has seen it. It does not exist.


“So this has been the plan all along, by the way. The plan all along was not to take a position, to let the days count down until we got to this point with 72 hours to go and then force a vote on something that they wanted. I believe that that has been the plan the entire time. And you can see it carrying itself out.


“You want to know why people all across America get grossed out about politics? It’s by watching this kind of stuff happen.


“And instead let me tell you what we’ve seen for the last few days. First of all, for today and for much of this time I have heard all these attacks and name-calling. If we had $1 billion for every time I heard the words "tea party extremist," we could solve this debt problem.

“So all this name-calling, so I said let me read some quotes about this debt limit and I found some pretty extremist quotes.

“Here's one.


“It says, "The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I, therefore, intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt.” A quote from a tea party extremist, right? No. This is a quote from March 16 of 2006 from Senator Barack Obama of Illinois.


“I found another extremist quote. This one says,

"Because this massive of accumulation of debt was predicted, because it was foreseeable, because it was unnecessary, because it was the result of willful and reckless disregard for the warnings that were given and for the fundamentals of economic management, I am voting against a debt limit increase.” Well, that must be from a tea party extremist member of the House, right? No. This is March 16, 2006, from Senator Joe Biden of Delaware.


“And last but not least, here's a quote from September 27 of 2007. It says,

"I find it distasteful and disturbing to increase the debt limit yet again. Clearly we need to change course and this debt limit bill is just another reminder of that." And that is from the distinguished Senator from Nevada, the majority leader. On that date in 2007.


“And yet now these same quotes in this context, what we're talking about raising the debt limit more than has ever been raised in one vote, is extremism? This name-calling is absurd and it sets this process back.


“The other thing I hear -- oh, it is not reasonable. This is a waste of time. This bill can't pass the Senate when they talk about the House bill. So now it disqualifies the bill the fact that it can't pass in the Senate.

“Well, guess what? The Senate bill can't pass in the Senate -- the Senate bill can't pass in the Senate.”

Sen. John Kerry (D-MA): “Will the Senator yield for a question?”

Sen. Rubio: “Yes, I'll yield.”

Sen. John Kerry: “I thank the Senator for doing that. That's become somewhat unusual in the Senate today. So I truly appreciate it.

“I would ask the Senator, as ironic as it may be that on occasion people in the past have indeed voted against a debt limit -- both Republicans and Democrats alike -- is it not true that in those situations those votes did not hold the nation hostage, did not come at a moment of enormous economic fragility as we are in today, and did not run the risk of default because it was going to pass overwhelmingly every time?


“Is that not true?”


Sen. Rubio: “To the Senator from Massachusetts, I would say two things.

“The first is that those votes -- put it to you this way. If the Senator from Illinois at the time, Senator Obama, had had his way, we'd be in the same position we are in now. Because he had voted against the debt – and I recognize the President has now said that the debt limit is -- he made a mistake and he wouldn't have said that were he here today.

“My point, I would say to the Senator from Massachusetts, is that rhetoric two years ago was not considered extremist language and now that rhetoric, which by the way I have not found. I think it is a myth. There may be a handful of people in the building both in the House and Senate perhaps that believe that the nation doesn't have to raise the debt limit. But by and large everyone recognizes that something must be done about the debt limit.

“What we have also said – I speak for myself. Let me not speak for any other member of this chamber or the next.

“What I have also said is that it would be a terrible mistake to lose this opportunity to do something meaningful about the debt. And that the debt limit gives us an opportunity to do something meaningful about the debt, because the crisis that America faces is not one that I have defined.

“But one that has been defined by the rating houses and rating agencies who have said if you do not get your spending in order, we don't care whether you raise your debt limit or not, we will downgrade you.

“And what that means for every American is an increase in their interest payments.”

Sen. John Kerry: “Will the Senator further yield for a question?”

Sen. Rubio: “Yes.”


Sen. Kerry:

“Mr. President I appreciate what the Senator is saying. I would just say first of all that everybody understands the danger of the rating agencies right now.
“The problem is, we got to reach across the aisle and negotiate. We've got to come to agreement. Right now there's not a lot of negotiating going on.


“I would ask the Senator, if he doesn't agree that there is an enormous difference between -- the Senator a moment ago said if he had gotten his way. But the whole point is, everybody knew he wasn't about to get his way. That was a truly symbolic vote.


“Today, however, is it not true we are on the brink of a default and the absence of negotiation or the absence of a settlement presents us with a far more serious consequence to the unwillingness to raise the debt ceiling today?”


Sen. Rubio: “To the Senator from Massachusetts I would say it's impossible to negotiate with someone who doesn't offer a plan. How do you negotiate with someone who will not offer a plan and will not put it on the table?

“But the finger pointing of who has a plan and who doesn't have a plan is relevant, but it's not the central issue here.

“I would also say that in March of this year, March 30 to be exact of this year, I wrote an op-ed piece that ran in The Wall Street Journal and it outlined the things I was looking for to be a part of this debate. And I was told on March of this year that we didn't have enough time to do all those things. Although later on we found out perhaps we did, this grand bargain and I am prepared, as I stand here today, if there is a meeting going on right after this, I'd love to be a part of it.

“I am prepared to discuss the things that I believe we need to do not just to raise the debt limit. Raising the debt limit is the easiest thing. That's one vote away. The hard thing is to show the world we are serious about putting our spending in order so we can show people we'll able to pay our bills down the road.

“And that is a combination of things that I have outlined very clearly, not just on March of this year in The Wall Street Journal, but in repeated speeches on this floor.

“And those are the things, we need to do two things.

“Number one is we need to grow our economy because while the debt is the biggest issue in Washington, jobs are the biggest issue facing America. And if we could get more people back to work, we would have more people paying taxes, and if we had more people paying taxes, we'd have more revenue for government.

“And so that is the first thing we need to do, is figure out how to create jobs in America and I think there is bipartisan agreement on things we can do to do that.

“The President himself mentioned regulatory reform as a necessity in the State of the Union. Let's do it.

“We've all talked about tax reform. Flattening and simplifying our tax code. And if there are things in that tax code that do not belong there because they are the product of good lobbying instead of good policy, then let's go after those things. We’ve talked about that. Let's talk about that.

“I think we all agree that there has to be some changes in discretionary spending, but we also agree that doesn't solve the problem. That's a small piece of our overall budget. That we have to save Medicare because it goes bankrupt if we leave it the way it is. That we have to save Medicaid because it goes bankrupt if we leave it the way it is.

“And I can tell you that history will back up what I'm about to say and that is that there is no government run by conservatives, Republicans, put whoever you want there, if you give government the opportunity to spend more money than it has, it will do it. It will do it every time.

“That's why I believe there are at least 20 members of the Senate in the other party who have supported some version of the balanced budget amendment and yet it's something we cannot even get a vote on much less discuss in the Senate.


“So I believe there can be compromise on those outlines but here's the last thing I would say.

“I believe my time is about to expire so let me close with this.


“Compromise is fantastic.


“I would love nothing more than to leave this building tomorrow night having said the republic still works. I was able to stand shoulder to shoulder with people from states far from mine with views different from mine but who love their country so much that we were able to come together and save it when it faced this catastrophe.


“I would love nothing more than compromise. But I would say to you that compromise that's not a solution is a waste of time.


“If my house was on fire, I can't compromise about which part of the house I'm going to save. You save the whole house or it will all burn down.


“We either save this country or we do not.

“And to save it, we must seek solutions.”



Wild Thing's comment.........

If you can be sure to watch to all the way to the end of the video. John Kerry stands up and trys to put pressure on Rubiio. Hahahahha

Impressive and to the point. Rubio is a helluva sharp guy....WOW! Rubio was excellent: Compromise that is NOT a solutions a waste of time.

Democrats can’t handle it when someone dares speak up and just tell the facts.

President G.W.Bush To Be In NYC To Mark 10th Anniversary Of 9/11

Bush to be in NYC to mark 10th anniversary of 9/11

NEW YORK


AP


The ceremony at the World Trade Center site marking the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks will be a solemn but stately event that will include former President George W. Bush and a chance for victims' families to view the names of loved ones etched into the memorial, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.

President Barack Obama and Bloomberg will be joined by the leaders in charge during the 2001 attacks, including Bush, former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and former New York Gov. George Pataki. Current New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will also be there, he said.

Speaking on his weekly radio show Friday on WOR-AM, Bloomberg said the lawmakers will read short poems or quotes. No speeches will be given.

"This cannot be political," he said. "So that's why there's a poem or a quote or something that each of the readers will read. No speeches whatsoever. That's not an appropriate thing."

The mayor also revealed a few more details for the ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 11. It will be held on the highway to the west of the site, and only relatives will be allowed inside the memorial to look for the names of their loved ones, etched into the railings at two huge waterfalls built in the footprint of the World Trade Center.

I wish Obama was not going to be there. ( deep sigh)

Rep.Paul Ryan Responds To Defense ‘Cuts’: ‘Let’s Pass A Bill To Cover The Moon With Yogurt’ ~ Good One!



Conservative star Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) ripped Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for the fantasy savings in his budget plan.

Let’s pass a bill to cover the moon with yogurt that will cost $5 trillion today. and then let’s pass a bill the next day to cancel that bill. We could save $5 trillion.”

Transcript:


Rep. Paul Ryan took the House floor today to rail against what he considered “accounting tricks and budget gimmicks” by those attempting to carve out a budget that reduced spending. Among those, he explained, were the supposed “cuts” to defense spending that cut from predicted future spending in Iraq and Afghanistan, which he argued were not any different than repealing a bill proposing to “cover the moon with yogurt.”
Introducing to the debt crisis lexicon what is perhaps its catchiest potential meme yet, Rep. Ryan explained that much of the “spending” cuts proposed were counting money not yet necessary to spend. Many of the assumptions, Rep. Ryan explained, in the proposed cuts were, to him, complete fiction:

“We assume we’re going to be fighting this war for 10 more years, with over 100,000 troops in Afghanistan and oh, gosh, wait, we’re going to withdraw our troops in 2014. $1 trillion in savings. I’ve got a better idea. Let’s pass a bill to cover the moon with yogurt that will cost $5 trillion today. and then let’s pass a bill the next day to cancel that bill. We could save $5 trillion. Wait, I’ve got a better idea. Our debt is $14 trillion. Let’s come up with a new plan to spend $14 trillion, then rescind it the next day and let’s save $14 trillion. This stuff is fiscal fantasy. You can’t make this stuff up, Mr. Speaker.”


“We can’t keep spending money we can’t have,” he continued, emphasizing that the money that the proposal on the floor claimed to save was not money that anyone should expect to be spent at any time. “Why on earth do we want to give the President a blank check to keep doing that, giving our sovereignty and self-determination to other countries to loan us money to fund our government? Those days have got to end,” he concluded. The point may be a serious one of Congressional contention, but expect that “cover the moon with yogurt” analogy to take the express route into GOP talking points.


Wild Thing's comment.......

LOL love how he put this.

We really do have a lot of awesome conservatives in office. And we will get rid of the RINO's each time they come up for their next election. I pray this happens!!!

Speaker John Boehner's AWESOME Speech He Gave Just Before The Vote On His Debt Limit Bill






Speaker Boehner gave a passionate awesome speech. I LOVE his being on fire and he needs to know we want this fire and not only once and awhile but all the time. He was telling off the freak in the WH and Reid and the rest of the dems and was great!


The House passed Speaker of the House John Boehner’s bill.The vote fell along party lines at 218-210, with 22 Republicans voting against the bill.




.




Rush Limbaugh today telling conservatives, “I want to tell you how damn proud I am of you,” for putting pressure on the “inside the beltway” conservative leadership in Congress, resulting in the addition of a “Balanced Budget Amendment” provision to the “Boehner Plan.” Limbaugh has led the charge – along with Mark Levin and Sean Hannity – to not accept the “Boehner Plan as put forward yesterday. Boehner has now revamped the plan to gain additional votes by adding a provision for a Balanced Budget Amendment.


.


Wild Thing's comment.......

Thank you Rush and thank you Speaker Boehner. I LOVE that speech he gave so much, full of passion and fire. He has done this before but way too long in between. The last time was during the freaking obamaDEATHcare he held up the huge stack of pages and gave an awesome speech then too.

GOP Watches Ben Affleck's "The Town" to Rally Behind Debt Plan Then Schumer Becomes Cry Baby!




GOP watches Ben Affleck's "The Town" to rally behind debt plan

CBS News


Even before the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said House Speaker John Boehner’s debt plan may cut less in spending than it initially promised, selling the plan to conservative Republicans was proving to be a challenge.

In an attempt to rally their Tea Party-backed conservative members, Republican leaders opened a Tuesday morning meeting with a clip of the movie “The Town,” the Washington Post first reported.

The 2010 flick is about Boston bank robbers, and the scene that House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., played to the House GOP caucus depicts two characters about to go beat people up.

In that scene, Ben Affleck’s character says, “I need your help. I can’t tell you what it is. You can never ask me about it later.” In its reporting, the Post left out Affleck’s next line: “We’re gonna hurt some people.”

The character played by Jeremy Lee Renner replies, “Whose car we takin’?”

After viewing the clip, Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., replied, “I’m ready to drive the car.”


West’s office confirms that the Tea Party-backed congressman did give that spirited reply and still backs Boehner’s deficit reduction plan.


.



LOL Schumer is all upset. hahaha ~ Wiild Thing

"In the scene they chose to inspire their House freshmen, one of the crooks gives a pep talk to the other, right before they both put on hockey masks, bludgeon two men with sticks, an shoot a man in the leg!" Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said today. "Literally, in the movie the protagonists say, "people are going to get hurt," but they have to go ahead and do it anyway. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your House majority."




.

Wild Thing's comment.........

I do have to say I really admire and love the way Allen West gets how much we need strong people to save our country. I love his take no prisoner attitude he has on the things he believes in. He really stood up for Israel and I was so proud of him. and he has stood up for a lot of other things that needed to be said too.


One more thing I guess we are not alllowed to take breath without permission from the democrats. I have had it with them all of them including their president.

Bring on the movies like this and let the democrats wet their pants in fear, I could care less. They continue to bash, slander, lie about Republicans and their idiot brain dead voters believe their lies.

I have to tell you, when I bought my first computer it was during the Bill Clinton regime. I wanted to be able to go to varioius forms online and post information about Clinton I could find and stand up for America. So I have been in my own very small way fighting back against Democrats for a long time and I have hit the wall when it comes to having enough of their crap. They are defending a man ( obama) that is out to destroy our country and all of us.

GOP Rep. Paul Ryan and Rep. Allen West Supporting Boehner's Bill




GOP Rep. Paul Ryan making the case for supporting House Speaker John Boehner’s bill to raise the U.S. Debt Limit, and cutting spending by more than the Debt Limit is being raised.

Ryan said the bill is not all he or other GOP leaders want it to be, but it is far better than anything envisioned when they started the process. It does not have tax increases, and it requires spending cuts that more than equal the amount the Debt Limit is being increased.

Ryan thinks the Democrats are blustering about the Boehner Bill being dead on arrival in the Senate because they don’t want any House Democrats to vote for it. Ryan believes if the House passes the Boehner bill in an expected vote tomorrow, it does have a good chance of passing in the Senate, and that Obama would have to sign it.

Rep. Allen West Supports Boehner’s Plan; Calls It the “70-75% Solution”


Congressman Allen West tells Neil Cavuto that he supports John Boehner’s plan even though it’s not 100%. West said, “We can sit around and we can kvetch about coming up with the 100% plan, but we’re wasting time. I believe this is the plan that gives us the 70-75% solution.”




.

This is taken from Speaker Boehner's website


BOEHNER SAYS NO BLANK CHECK FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA:

“Listen, it’s time to do what is doable, and this bill isn’t perfect. … That’s what happens when you have a Democrat-controlled Senate and a Democrat in the white House. This bill was agreed to by the bipartisan Senate leadership, and we believe we can get this on the president’s desk, and make it law. Listen, we’re not going to give him a $2.5 trillion blank check that lets him continue his spending binge through the next election. That’s not going to happen.”

BOEHNER: THIS IS OUR BEST OPPORTUNITY TO HOLD THE PRESIDENT’S FEET TO THE FIRE:

“I think what people want is Cut, Cap, and Balance. It’s what I want. The House passed it last week. The Senate demonstrated they can’t pass it. At this point in time we’ve got to find a vehicle that will pass that will insist the cuts in spending are bigger than the increase in the debt limit. … The path we’ve been on here for the last four days I think is a reasonable path that will solve the problem, that will begin the process of the making the tough decisions that need to be made to cut spending here in Washington. … The plan we have got on the table is the best opportunity we have to hold the president’s feet to the fire. He wants a $2.4 trillion blank check that lets him continue his spending binge through the next election. This is the time to say no.”

Wild Thing's comment........

On FOX News on TV someone was saying that no one has seen Reid's plan... except maybe Reid himself. LOL

This is all so embarassing as a country besides everything else about it. For other nations to see us going through this and obama being what and the kind of person he is.....damn obama and his spending and taxing us into such weakness and debt. And damn the voters that put him in power.

Texas Congressman: Obama Administration Continue To Ban The Word God At Funerals Of Heroes



FOX News Radio

Texas lawmaker is calling for a Congressional investigation of the Houston National Cemetery after he went undercover and determined that cemetery officials are still preventing Christian prayers at the funerals of military veterans.


“The Obama administration continues to try to prevent the word ‘God’ from being used at the funerals of our heroes,” said. Rep. John Culberson (R-TX). “It’s unacceptable and I’m going to put a stop to it as fast as humanly possible.”

Culberson told Fox News Radio he attended a burial service at the cemetery under cover on July 8 where he said volunteer members of the honor guard from the Veterans of Foreign Wars were prohibited from using any references to God.


“The Obama administration had told the nation and me they were not interfering with the prayer said over the graves of veterans,” he said. “And I went undercover to personally verify that claim.”

V.A. officials have strongly denied they’ve banned any religious speech — and have offered support for Arleen Ocasio, the cemetery’s director.


Culberson said the commander of the honor guard was told to by cemetery officials to approach a grieving widow to reconfirm that she wanted the word God mentioned at her husband’s graveside service.

“He quite correctly said as a Texan and a man of honor and integrity, ‘I’m not bothering that poor woman at this most terrible time of her life. We’re going to do the ritual,’” Culberson said. “Right in front of me, the V.A. directly and deliberately attempted to prevent the VFW from doing their magnificent, spiritual ritual over the grave of this fallen hero.


The cemetery is already the focus of a lawsuit filed on behalf of the VFW, an American Legion post and Houston’s National Memorial Ladies. They claim the V.A. banned members of the organizations from using the words “God” or “Jesus” at burial services. They also allege they were banned from reciting prayers or using religious language during services unless families approved the text in advance.

Culberson, who oversees the sub-committee responsible for funding the cemetery, said that he wants the cemetery director fired – and he’s willing to do whatever possible to make sure that happens.

“The cemetery director has to leave,” he said. “I will zero out her salary. If she attempts to work for the VA anywhere in the state of Texas her salary will be zero.”


“It makes my skin crawl that liberals are attempting to drive prayer out of a funeral ceremony for our heroes,” Culberson said. “We’re going to fix this so that no Obama liberal bureaucrat will interfere with the funeral of a hero.”


Culberson said he hopes to hold hearings on the cemetery in the fall.

“It makes my skin crawl that liberals are attempting to drive prayer out of a funeral ceremony for our heroes,” he said. “They will bury 10 to 20 American heroes today and the Obama administration is preventing prayers from being said over their gravesites – today.”



Wild Thing's comment........

Very glad to see Culberson going after this cemetery director like he is and anyone else caught lying about this should be fired. And I hope Rep. Culberson gets Arleen Ocasio fired asap!!


“I will zero out her salary. If she attempts to work for the VA anywhere in the state of Texas her salary will be zero.”

Culberson's good idea to stop paying Arleen Ocasio's salary she is vile and on direct orders from obama.

Thank God for Republicans, I am so sick of democrats destroying everything in our country.

“Stop your policies in Washington that are wrecking the American economy… We know the spending is the problem here. Let’s focus on that and not try to score political points and not worry about the election for the presidential campaign… He believes that government is in place to promulgate rules and regulations to somehow settle scores.”

Another one of the good guys on the side of America speaking out. Obama has made it very clear he has a special hate for Eric Cantor so I would bet he ( obama) will be a tad ticked off by what he has said. Good for Eric!

Response From House Speaker John Boehner





House Speaker John Boehner responding to Obama’s address to the nation on the Debt Limit.

Boehner spoke briefly, but effectively. He made it clear there would be no increase in the Debt Limit without accompanying spending cuts. Boehner explained that Obama rejected the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” bill passed by the House, saying Obama has been unwilling to “take yes for an answer.” Obama wants a “balanced approach,” Boehner said, which means, “We spend more, and you pay more.”

Obama “wants a blank check today,” Boehner said. “This is just not going to happen,” he stated.


Boehner made it clear that Obama is desperately trying to keep from dealing with the nation’s debt, and that it is on him if no debt limit increase is signed.



Wild Thing's comment........

For the life of me I can't understand how anyone would still think Obama is a good president or would want him to stay in power.

Obama blamed Bush, tax cuts and “unpaid for” wars in his presidential address. It was the same speech we’ve heard a hundred times

Boehner gave a good response. I just want him be as strong as he knows we all keep asking him to be and not give in.

Obama is the one keeping this whole thing going. Obama is the one that will NOT to any cuts in spending. This is all at the feet of Obama!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rep. LTC Allen West Gives A Great Speech About Leadership




Allen West called out the Republican Party for demonstrating years of passive leadership to its constituents and submissive behavior towards the Democrat Party.

Congressman Allen West has challenged the GOP establishment and openly stated that the Republican Party needs to regain its credibility and take an affirmative stand for core principles. The 2012 Republican National Convention will be held in Tampa, Florida, and Congressman West also challenged Florida Republicans to also take a stand and show the country,“how it’s gonna be done."

Republicans Have Passed A Budget, and Passed a Plan to Raise the Nation’s Debit Ceiling Also Cutting Spending – Only to be Rejected by Obama






House Speaker John Boehner speaking forcefully on Fox News Sunday, where he blasted Obama and the Democrats for not having yet put forward any kind of plan to deal with the nation’s debt. He said Republicans have passed a budget, and passed a plan to raise the nation’s Debit Ceiling while also cutting spending – only to be rejected by Democrats.

John Boehner Blasts Obama for not presenting any plan on debt limit; “The House has Done Its Work. We’ve Passed a Budget. We’ve Passed a Plan”

“The GOP must protect the country from what the president is trying to orchestrate… GOP must stop him.”


“There was never any plan from the White House. The whole plan came from us. We laid out the framework. At some point, they’ve got to lay their cards on the table.”


.


FOX News


Obama invited Minority Leader Pelosi and Harry Reid to the White House for meetings Sunday night. Democrats have still not released their own debt plan.

Unable to find common ground, Republicans and Democrats worked Sunday to prepare separate fallback plans for raising the debt ceiling as they tried to provide some assurance to the global financial markets that the country will not default on its obligations.

Party leaders were huddling in their respective camps late Sunday as they weighed what can reasonably be accomplished before an Aug. 2 deadline.

“This is about what is doable at the 11th hour,” House Speaker John Boehner told “Fox News Sunday.”

As Boehner hosted a conference call with House Republicans, the White House invited House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid to the Oval Office for a meeting Sunday evening.

Back-channel talks have been rocky all day, and a Senate Democratic aide told Fox News that while those talks continue, Reid is now working on a separate fallback proposal. The plan would call for at least $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction — without revenue increases — and would extend U.S. borrowing authority until 2013. This would fulfill a White House demand that the debt ceiling be increased to last through the next election.

However, Boehner said Sunday that he wants a two-stage process. While he would not publicly detail what that entails, others have said it involves roughly a $1 trillion debt-ceiling increase now, coupled with commensurate spending cuts, and another set of votes early next year.



Wild Thing's comment........

I just keep thinking if we had a conservative as president even with only one of the Houses majority Republican, this whole mess would not be happening. It would have been done correctly back when it was supposed to be done.

And of course there would not be any Geithner (no tax payer) in charge of anything.

GOP Readies New Debt Ceiling Plan; Bill Set For Sunday ~ Community Organizer Obama On His Own Has NO Plan He Can Think Of




House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is set to call the Democratic Party’s bluff on the debt ceiling. The Ohio Republican, in a briefing with his conference on Saturday, announced that he would press for a short-term deal, with major spending cuts paired with longer-term deficit-reduction strategies, as a way around the current impasse.


That strategy puts the speaker directly at odds with the White House and allied Democrats, who have insisted for weeks that they would not support a short-term extension of the debt ceiling. The president went so far as to dare House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to test his opposition to a temporary deal during a tense meeting more than a week ago.

GOP Readies New Debt Ceiling Plan; Bill Set For Sunday

Washington Examiner


House Republicans are set to release their two-part plan tomorrow.( Sunday)

House Republicans are finishing work on a new proposal to resolve the standoff over the debt ceiling. The proposal, set to be finished and crafted into the form of a bill by Sunday, will be in two parts. The first will combine a short-term increase in the debt ceiling with spending cuts. The second will lay the groundwork for a longer-term increase in the debt ceiling coupled with far-reaching deficit reduction.

“Senator Reid said on Friday that he is going to wait for us to move,” says a well-informed GOP House aide. “So we’ll move.” Another well-informed aide confirmed the basic outline of what’s happening.

Staff of the House Rules Committee is involved in the work, which is an indication that the process is nearing completion. Before any bill can be considered on the House floor, the Rules Committee must first pass a rule setting out the process for its consideration. Once the proposal is finished, it would likely be posted on the Rules Committee website, probably no later than Monday, so the committee could meet to consider it on Tuesday and it could be on the House floor by Wednesday.

Work on the new proposal was underway before negotiations with the White House blew up on Friday. Sources say the plan was being created last week, even as the House leadership devoted considerable time to passing the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” proposal. Once the Senate Democratic leadership blocked “Cut, Cap, and Balance,” House leaders stepped up work on the new proposal. Right now, the new direction is believed to be the only way forward. “McConnell-Reid is just not a viable option in the House,” the aide says, referring to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s complicated proposal to allow the president to increase the debt ceiling.

Rush Limbaugh On Rep. LTC Allen West: "he is a brilliant man, and he's a good and decent man......"



This video is Rep. Allen West on FOX : "Not A Chance" I'll Apologize, Wasserman Schultz Is Still A Liar & Not A Lady



.



And this from Rush Limbaugh:


...."the House does have that understanding that members are not to be called out. She did it, and West replied. You know, West is a tough guy, and he is a brilliant man, and he's a good and decent man, and he has served in the US military. He's gone up against people far tougher than Debbie "Blabbermouth" Schultz, and so he fired back. This is not the first time she said this stuff about Allen West. She says it all the time in south Florida. It's the first time she said it on the floor of the House. So what did she do? She ran like a little crybaby to all these other left-wing women of the Democrat Party to help her out, and they start returning fire that West is the racist and West is the sexist and so forth. "

Rep. Wasserman Schultz 'vile...despicable...not a Lady'



After Rep. Allen West left the House floor yesterday , lying leftist hack Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz attacked him and lied about the Republican plan. A disgruntled Allen West sent out this response to the vile DNC chair.


Politico:

Florida GOP Congressman Allen West yesterday dispatched an email to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, calling her "vile, unprofessional ,and despicable," "a coward," "characterless," and "not a Lady."


Wasserman-Schultz, in whose neighboring South Florida district West lives, provoked his tirade with remarks after he left the House floor today, in which she responded -- without naming him -- to the Tea Party freshman's support for "Cut, Cap, and Balance" legislation to raise the debt ceiling.

"The gentleman from Florida. who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries, unbelievable from a Member from South Florida," Wasserman-Schultz said, saying the legislation "slashes Medicaid and critical investments essential to winning the future in favor of protecting tax breaks for Big Oil, millionaires, and companies who ship American jobs overseas."


Allen West's email:

From: Z112 West, Allen
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!


I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.


You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

Gosh, he is so awesome. Bewteen Allen West and Marco Rubio and some others America just might have a chance to recover from Obama and the left's destruction.

West just drew the line in the sand....good for him!..And he sent this to the Democrates..Pelosi and the whole bunch! Wonderful to see one of ours take the lead and hopefully the softer Republicans will take the hint.


Thanks, Congressman West...you speak for REAL Americans.

Here is something else he said the other day:


his website


In his latest weekly update to constituents, U.S. Rep. Allen West, calls the debate over the federal government’s debt limit “the ultimate ideological clash in America…between those who believe in principled fiscal policies and those desiring the socialist bureaucratic nanny-state.”

He rips President Obama‘s handling of fiscal affairs and the economy and offers this critique of Obama’s supporters:
“I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.”

Fantastic! GOP Sen. Marco Rubio Is Outstanding on Sunday's CBS News’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer ~ A MUST SEE VIDEO!!



“OK, so where’s the plan? Where’s the president’s plan? I’ve never seen a piece of paper with the president’s name on it that’s his plan to solve this crisis. I’ve seen press conferences. I’ve seen lectures that he’s given to the Congress. I’ve seen these press avails where the camera comes in and takes a bunch of pictures. I haven’t seen a plan. Where is the president’s plan?“

Marco was just too much for Obama-apologist Bob Schieffer.

Wow this is outstanding GOP Sen. Marco Rubio getting into a testy back and forth with CBS News’s “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer today. Rubio was taking it to Barack Obama for his failure to lead on the Debt Ceiling issue, and for his failure to turn the U.S. Economy around. Schieffer then began defending the Obama Administration, sounding much more like a Democrat shill than the anchor of a major Sunday Interview Program. Schieffer blamed the current economy “on the previous administration,” to which Rubio responded, “When does it start getting better, Bob?” Rubio made it clear Obama has offered no plan of his own, and has seemed to want this “crisis” to unfold. Schieffer repeatedly sought to defend Obama, and was clearly frustrated by Rubio.

Rubio said he would not support Sen. Mitch McConnell’s plan to give President Obama authority to raise the Debt Limit. He said the problem is not “the debt limit” – it’s the debt.”

Marco Rubio is soooo good. Rubio absolutely blew him away.

House Turns Off Incandescent “ban” By Voice Vote ~ God Bless Them! Stay Strong Against The Environmentalists Nazi's!





Politico


House democrats on Tuesday blocked Republican efforts to repeal their job-killing light bulb ban. The democrats’ plan was to ban 100 watt incandescent bulbs in the US markets in January 2012, with bans on lower wattage bulbs to follow.

The democrats didn’t care that their plan would give hundreds of US jobs to China.

Republicans came back on Friday morning and blocked federal light bulb efficiency standards without even a roll call vote.


An amendment from Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) defunding the Energy Department’s standards for traditional incandescent light bulbs to be 30 percent more energy efficient starting next year was approved by voice vote.

The move by Republicans wasn’t just wise, it was popular. 67% of American voters oppose the bulb ban and support Republicans on this issue.


.


Wild Thing's comment........

I am thrilled at what our side did. THRILLED!!

The day the light bulb nazis decided it was THEIR right to tell us how to light our homes, rather than ours was the day this country went from being in trouble to being in danger.

If our side can stay strong on this and somehow get the Senate to pass it iand then keep obama from doing his veto crap on it, maybe they can finish putting it through the rest of the way when we get a Conservative in power and more elected in the Houses.


Our government needs to at least give we the people the freedom to have a choice in what we want to use, not this dictatorship coming from the enviro's. GRRRRRR!!! Only the government would force people to purchase light bulbs with poisonous material in them.

Allen West Speaks On Obama Using Intimidation and Scare Tactics






Allen West on Obama: Real leaders don’t use intimidation and scare tactics


Allen West says that Obama does not have the moral high ground on these debt limit negotiations because every one of his economic policies have failed and that it’s only because he has run up record deficits that we are now at this critical point. He says that Obama needs to understand that it’s his job to prioritize spending so that Social Security checks will go out and we don’t default.

House Speaker John Boehner Says “No Deal” to Obama’s Higher Taxes Debt-Limit Push



House Speaker John Boehner Says “No Deal” to Obama’s Higher Taxes Debt-Limit Push

The Daily Caller


News is out tonight that Speaker of the House John Boehner has essentially said “No Deal” to President Obama tonight on negotiations that would increase taxes as part of plan to raise the nation’s debt-ceiling and lower the deficit. Obama has been pushing for raising taxes, and Boehner has apparently told him he won’t be part of such a deal:

House Speaker John Boehner essentially walked out of debt limit negotiations with President Obama Saturday night. He cited an impasse with the White House on the size of the debt reduction package.

After abandoning talks, Boehner issued a statement saying:


“Despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the White House will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. I believe the best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure, based on the cuts identified in the Biden-led negotiations, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of any debt limit increase.”

A bipartisan group of lawmakers is scheduled to meet at the White House Sunday to further discuss a deal to raise the debt ceiling to avoid defaulting on the nation’s debt. (Obama puts Medicare, Social Security cuts on the table)

Senator Marco Rubio:"We don’t need new taxes. We need new taxpayers, people that are gainfully employed" ~ Marco Is Great!


“We don’t need new taxes. We need new taxpayers, people that are gainfully employed, making money and paying into the tax system. Then we need a government that has the discipline to take that additional revenue and use it to pay down the debt and never grow it again,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said on the Senate floor.





Here’s the actual clip from Rubio in full, queued at 5:32 to start where he begins to give this speech which ends at the 11:00 mark:

Rush says that Republican leadership is talking about loop holes and revenues when they should be urging the President to live within a Congressional budget by not raising the debt limit and asking the President to make the needed cuts as painless as possible. But then he plays a clip by Marco Rubio which to date must be his best moment in the Senate. Rubio quickly gets to the root of the problem by saying that the real problem is jobs and that by fixing that problem we begin to fix everything else including debt and revenues. He adds that if the President wants to raise revenues, Republicans agree and they should move to help create an environment where people will create jobs. That’s how you solve the problem and that’s how you frame the argument.




Wild Thing's comment......

Marco has been doing such a good job. Being one of the many freshman in D.C. He is stood out and thank God for Marco and Allen West for talking a stand when they could just sit back and take it all in being freshmen they are not letting any of that intimidate them. They went to D.C. to speak for we the people and I am grateful!

Rep. Allen West and his Weekly Wrap-Up




Rep. Allen West lists 15 potential grievances against the Criminal in Chief.


Rep. Allen West and his Weekly Wrap-Up 7-4


Dear Patriot,

Greetings to our constituents, fellow Floridians, and to all Americans. It is once again time for our weekly update.

During this time period I have done some extensive traveling. I returned from a 72-hour visit to Doha Qatar (Combined Air Operations Center) and Afghanistan this past Tuesday evening, 26 June. I can humbly state that in my first six months of being in Congress, I have spent more time in Afghanistan than our Commander-In-Chief in his first three years.

We released our Afghanistan summary report which you can link to by clicking here. Feel free to review and share with others. Ours was the first CODEL (Congressional Delegation) visit after the President's speech on Afghanistan troop reductions.

As I sit here typing this missive, I am pondering the 235th birthday of the longest running Constitutional Republic the world has ever known; the United States of America. I went back and re-read the Declaration of Independence, which was written 235 years ago by a young Thomas Jefferson. What many perhaps do not realize, is that the Declaration of Independence not only set forth a new ideal for government and challenged the status quo of aristocratic and sometimes autocratic monarchies, it contained a list of grievances justifying why, "in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another... that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation."

Here are examples of some of these grievances from the Declaration of Independence:

"He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspended in their Operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them."

"He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harass our People and eat out their Substance."

"For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments."

"For imposing Taxes upon us without our Consent."

Now, I just started to consider, what if Thomas Jefferson were sitting with me right now this weekend and assessed what our Constitutional Republic has become under this Obama administration. What would he outline as the potential "grievances" as he did 235 years ago?

Since Mr. Jefferson cannot use Microsoft Word, he dictated these grievances to me:

He has enacted a fiscal disaster called the stimulus package of some $900B which increased the national debt and did not keep unemployment in America under 8%. It resulted in a reported unemployment topping at 9.8%. For the black community, which supported him by overwhelming numbers, an unemployment rate between 14-16%.

He has proposed raising taxes during a weak economic recovery which would adversely affect long term sustainable growth. He has proceeded to seek increase of capital gains, dividends, and estate taxes. He has not considered reducing the corporate/business tax rate of 35% in order to incentivize private sector growth. He has promoted a widening chasm and divisiveness in America due to his incessant class warfare rhetoric.

He has nationalized several aspects of free market production in the automotive, financial, and healthcare industries in violation of the principles of capitalism and free enterprise.

He has signed into law a healthcare vision which creates 11 new taxes (one of these taxes to be a tanning tax), 16,000 new IRS agents, $500B in cuts to the MEDICARE program, 159 new government agencies and bureaucracies (to include a 15 member panel of bureaucrats which shall regulate the expenditures of MEDICARE), mandated individual American citizens to purchase a private sector commodity (which is not supported by the Commerce Clause), and has provided nearly 1400 exemptions to political cronies from adhering to the law he signed.

He has increased the federal debt by some $5T since taking office and due to historic levels of excessive spending, created record deficits of $1.42T, $1.29T, and $1.65T in just three years. He has seen 41 cents of every dollar being borrowed and 47% of the federal debt owned by foreign nations.

His proposed FY 2012 budget was voted down in the Unites States Senate, 0-97.

He has expanded a "dependency" class in America reflected in a 41% increase in food stamp recipients.

He has failed to produce a full spectrum energy independence resource development program while seeing average gas prices during his tenure go from $1.89 to a high water mark of approximately $3.81. He has inappropriately commanded the release of strategic oil reserves and provided the country of Brazil $2B for its offshore oil exploration.

He has created a shadow government of some 35+ individuals termed "Czars" who are not confirmed by the United States Senate and respond only to him, yet have overarching regulatory powers- a clear violation of our separation of powers concept.

He has increased the regulatory burden on American business through bypassing the legislative process with his executive branch agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency and the Food and Drug Administration.

He has supported an inept and incompetent Attorney General who has failed to prosecute voter intimidation cases (New Black Panther party), initiated a dangerous gun-smuggling program (Operation Fast and Furious) - which resulted in deaths to our own law enforcement agents, and refused to uphold a law, DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act).

He has failed to take the steps necessary to secure our borders and stem the flow of illegal immigration, termed as "repel invasions" in our United States Constitution in Article 1, Section 8 and Article 4, Section 4; and brought a federal lawsuit against a sovereign state seeking to protect its citizens from this threat.

He has violated the War Powers Act of 1973 and sought to redefine the term "hostilities" to suit his liking.

He has telegraphed troop reductions to our enemies- against the consult of his experienced Field Commanders, while embracing negotiations with our enemy, the Taliban, and recognizing another, the Muslim Brotherhood.

He has placed the security of our most trusted ally in the Middle East, Israel, in danger while increasing funding to the Palestinian Authority (Fatah, just another Islamic terrorist group) whilst they have enjoined a reconciliation pact with long- standing terrorist group, Hamas.

In conclusion, Thomas Jefferson simply stated that, in his humble assessment, the unalienable rights endowed to us by our Creator; life, liberty, and the pursuit (not guarantee) of happiness- are being threatened. He offered his analysis that this current government, the Obama administration, as instituted by the American people, has abridged the consent of the governed and that whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it.

So the 235th anniversary celebration of American Independence message to President Barack Hussein Obama, and his liberal progressive cronies, is simple: "You must go!"

Legislative Update: The House was not in session, therefore, no legislative update.

Highlights of the Week: Besides visiting with our men and women in Afghanistan, I attended the First Baptist Church of Ft. Lauderdale 4th of July celebration services. I was reunited with my former driver in Iraq, SGT Robert Delgado and we discussed the meaning of sacrifice. I participated in several Independence Day celebrations in South Florida, but most important was the "Wade-In" 50- year anniversary on Ft. Lauderdale Beach, reflecting on a period in our community's history when Edna Johnson and a few others challenged the beach segregation policy. And here I am, with the honor, 50 years later, of being the Congressional Representative of Ft. Lauderdale beach. America is exceptional!

Steadfast and Loyal,

Allen

A Statue Honoring President Ronald Reagan In London As A Tribute To His Presidency





This is a video report on a statue of former President Ronald Reagan was dedicated today in London as a tribute to his Presidency, and the role he played with Great Britain’s Margaret Thatcher in bringing down the Iron Curtain, and winning the Cold War. A truly great gesture, and one that is well deserved for President Reagan. Reagan joins Dwight Eisenhower, and Franklin Roosevelt as U.S. Presidents with statues in their honor in London.

A 10-foot bronze figure unveiled outside the US Embassy in London to mark 100 years since his birth.


London AP

Ronald Reagan was hailed as "a great American hero" Monday as his admirers unveiled a 10-foot-tall (3-meter-tall) statue of the former U.S. president near the American embassy in London.

Condoleezza Rice, national security adviser and secretary of state in President George W. Bush's administration, joined British Foreign Secretary William Hague at the morning ceremony in Grosvenor Square.

"Statues bring us to face to face with our heroes long after they are gone," Hague said "Ronald Reagan is without question a great American hero; one of America's finest sons, and a giant of 20th-century history. You may be sure that the people of London will take this statue to their hearts."


Hague also brought a message from former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Reagan's staunch ally, whose frail health has made her public appearances very rare.


"She has asked me to say these words to you: Ronald Reagan was a great president and a great man - a true leader for our times," Hague said.


"He held clear principles and acted upon them with purpose. Through his strength and his conviction he brought millions of people to freedom as the Iron Curtain finally came down."


A few days before Condoleezza Rice was in Prague on Friday as the Czech capital renamed a street in Reagan's honor, and she was in Budapest on Wednesday for the unveiling of a statue of Reagan.

These are among several events this year marking the 100th anniversary of Reagan's birth on Feb. 6, 1911, in Tampico, Illinois.


Wild Thing's comment........

I bet Obama and company are squirming.

God bless Ronald Reagan.

Reagan gets a statue. Obama gives back a bust of Churchill.

That’s really all Americans need to know for 2012,

Rush Limbaugh in Joplin,Mo. Showing Support For Their Rebuilding



.



Here is raw video (you can hear Rush but not really see him in the cell phone video) from Joplin, Missouri last night.


Limbaugh was in Joplin to deliver ice cold bottles of his new line of teas –
Two if by Tea” – in honor of the way they are working together as a community to rebuild following the devastating tornado that hit in May. Limbaugh praised their spirit of rugged individualism and the hard work they are doing to rebuild. Limbaugh chose Joplin as the winner of the contest to receive the tea after receiving many letters from his listeners suggesting Joplin be the winner.

Rush pledged to keep the spotlight on Joplin as they rebuild.


"Those of you from Joplin, Missouri, you are the essence of what the founding fathers had in mind...You represent the best this country has to offer"


Rush Limbaugh in Joplin, Missouri at the 'Freedom Fest' celebration. Joplin also received a giant semi of 'Two if By Tea.'




.

Wiild Thing's comment.......

This is great that Rush did this. He was born in MO. and after the horrible Tornadoes they had there and all the destruction, this July 4th was such a wonderful positive encouraging thing to happen. God bless and give strength to those living there.


More about Rush's Two If By Tea:

Two If By Tea™ is a proud sponsor of the Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation and will donate a minimum of $100,000 to MC-LEF beginning in June 2011.


The Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation is certified as one of America's best charities and provides assistance to the children of United States Marines and federal law enforcement personnel who were killed on duty or died under extraordinary circumstances while serving our country.


This Foundation was formed in February of 1995, under the belief that our nation's most precious resource is its youth. The recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have certainly illuminated America's commitment to freedom. We are reminded that freedom is not free. The price is great. No one knows that better than the left-behind sons and daughters of America's fallen heroes. Through the continuous support of donors, the Marine Corps - Law Enforcement Foundation has distributed aid with a value of more than $50,000,000.00 to eligible children.

Congressman LTC Allen West Talks About Sacrifice




The finale of a church's "Faith, Freedom and Fireworks" celebration on Sunday had the feel of a political convention, with indoor fireworks and a choir belting out "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" as red, white and blue confetti filled the air.

Fort Lauderdale’s First Baptist Church held its annual ‘Patriotic Celebration’ to honor those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. The church invited U.S. Representative Allen West to this year’s event to talk about the sacrifices the men and woman in uniform have made and continue to make as they protect out freedoms abroad. Many of you may be aware of Lt. Colonel Allen West’s own act of heroism and sacrifice when he gave up his body armor to a young soldier who lacked adequate protection during Operation Desert Storm- that particular body armor subsequently saved that soldiers life after he was shot in the chest.


The host of the event cut off Congressman West as he was about to tell the story and surprised him with someone else who could recall the story from his own personal perspective. Great video!

Senator Rubio Talks Budget & Debt On Senate Floor ~ Good For Rubio! Obama Is Mass Destruction!


In fact, Rubio said Obama’s comments amounted to “class warfare,” and was, “the kind of language that you would expect from the leader of a third world country, not the President of the United States.”








GOP Sen. Marco Rubio speaking on the Floor of the U.S. Senate Thursday where he blasted President Obama’s statements at a recent Press Conference as “disappointing.” In fact, Rubio said Obama’s comments amounted to “class warfare,” and was, “the kind of language that you would expect from the leader of a third world country, not the President of the United States.”


Rubio went on:


“The bigger problem, though, is maybe the President fundamentally doesn’t understand how jobs are created. Politicians don’t create jobs. U.S. Senators don’t create jobs. Sen. Johnson pointed out jobs are created by everyday people from all walks of life that start a business or expand an existing one. And our job here in Government is to make it easier for them to do that – not harder. Threatening to raise taxes, threatening to wage class warfare does not accomplish that purpose.

Here’s what I would suggest to the President. I would suggest that we have done this before as a people in America. Things like a simpler tax code – people around here are in favor of tax reform. A simpler tax code, a manageable and sane regulatory environment, and of course, a Government that doesn’t spend money it doesn’t have. These things have worked before, and they will work again. I urge the President to lead us in that direction.”




.


Wild Thing's comment......

Rubio got it EXACTLY right, and I hope he understands that to be a rising star that continues to rise, he’ll have to be this blunt. This is not the time in our country to speak softly no matter how big the stick. It is a time to speak out loud and clear of the destruction of the left and then give an answer to taking our country back.

I know it would never happen, but can you imagine a debate between Marco and Obama. OMG that would be awesome to see Marco and his paasion for America and Obama trying to keep up with all his non-answeres and his threats and arrogance. Marco would leave Obama in the dust.

The same if it were Sarah Palin or Allen West. They would have the same effect on Barack Hussein Obama.

Herman Cain Releases Awesome Ad About Obama Called "A Failure to Lead " ~ A Must See Video,Thank You Herman Cain!!





.


Wilid Thing's comment........


GOP candidate Herman Cain reminds voters what this election is all about. This is three minutes of must see video.

I love Herman Cain's passion, it reminds me of Sarah Paliln and also Allen West. Both of them have passion for saying what has to be said. And Cain is clear about what has to be done and what we need to do.


Of course the left will call him an Uncle Tom , just like that did with Clarence Thomas. The left has been calling Herman Cain names for years, even back when he stood up to Clinton on Hillarycare. He joked that he kept a list in his radio studio wall.


Here is something to go along with the video above:


Herman Cain To Speak At July 4 Philly Tea Party Event


"Herman Cain has chosen to spend Independence Day not in Iowa or New Hampshire but in front of Independence Hall where it all began."


Herman Cain is joining Ambassador John Bolton, talk show host Dom Giordano, businessman Joey Venuto and former Highlands, N.J. Mayor Anna Little as speakers at the 2011 Energy Independence Day Tea Party to be held 1-3 p.m., July 4 at Independence Mall, 5th and Market streets, Philadelphia.


"By joining us at Independence Mall this year, these statesmen are also recognizing the significance of our Tea Party theme," said Teri Adams of the Independence Hall Tea Party Association which is sponsoring the event along with the Cherry Hill Tea Party and the Diamond State Tea Party.

Music will be provided by the 286 Band.
The event is free although an after-party featuring soft drinks and hor dourves will cost $20. Reservations are required. Call 215-690-4043.
He made his name on the political scene by being instrumental in the defeat of the Clinton health care proposal in 1993.


Cain has a Philadelphia connection in that he managed the area's 400 Burger King franchises for Pillsbury in the 1980s taking the region from the least to the most profitable for the parent company within three years.

Texas Republican Congressman Ted Poe Calls For Termination of Obama’s Appointee Houston National Cemetery Director Arleen Ocasio ~ Good For Poe!!



Veterans Allege VA Censoring Prayer: MyFoxHOUSTON.com


Local veterans say the Department of Veterans Affairs is consistently censoring their prayers, banning them from saying the words “God,” and “Jesus” during funeral services at Houston National Cemetery.

Three separate organizations have come forward complaining the cemetery’s director and other government officials are violating the First Amendment. Members from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, The American Legion and the National Memorial Ladies all complain of “religious hostility” at the cemetery.


Arleen Ocasio


A 26-page complaint outlines the allegations. According to the court papers, the cemetery’s director, Arleen Ocasio, bans the word “God” and requires prayers to be submitted for government approval.

“We were told we could no longer say “God bless you” and “God bless your family,” said Marilyn Koepp, a volunteer with the National Memorial Ladies.

The group attends about 60 funerals a week to honor veterans and console families.

Yesterday Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX) called for the termination of Houston National Cemetery Director Arleen Ocasio.

Houston News

Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) on Wednesday, June 29, sent a letter to the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, DC, and issued the following statement in response to recent allegations regarding religious discrimination by the Director of the Houston National Cemetery:

“I am deeply troubled by the allegations that were brought to my attention when I met with members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Houston,” said Poe. The director of the Houston National Cemetery, Arleen Ocasio, allegedly has engaged in aggressive hostile censorship of religion at the second largest cemetery for veterans in the United States.


“The First Amendment is a sacred right of all Americans, especially those who have honorably served — and given their lives — in the name of protecting the United States. Denying their families their constitutional right to the free exercise of religious freedom is disgraceful and shows blatant disrespect for America’s veterans. If these allegations are true, I formally call for the termination of Arleen Ocasio as the director the Houston National Cemetery. This display of authoritarian behavior and religious discrimination should not be tolerated.”


LIST OF ACCUSATIONS

1) Director Ocasio and other Cemetery Officials instructed Veterans of Foreign Wars District 4 to remove prayers from its burial rituals and to no longer utter remarks when handling the discharged shell cases from the rifle salute to the family of deceased veterans.

2) Cemetery Officials instructed American Legion Post 586 to remove prayers from its burial rituals.

3) Director Ocasio told the National Memorial Ladies that it could no longer include “God Bless” in its condolence cards or speak a religious message to veterans’ families.

4) Director Ocascio shut down the Cemetery chapel; it is now a “meeting facility.”

" Actions Speak Louder Than Words, Mr. President " ~ Great Ad From The NRSC





This is the new National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) ad that destroys Obama with his own words. The ad plays audio of Obama’s arrogant attack on Congress for not “leading” and cutting out time off to get a deal done on the debt ceiling crisis. While audio of Obama’s self-righteous words is playing, images of Obama playing ping pong, drinking beer, playing golf etc. are flashed on the screen. It points out that Obama has played 76 rounds of golf during his 2+ years in the White House, taken 48 days of vacation, and held 149 fundraisers.

It concludes with the statement on the screen: “Actions speak louder than words.”

The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is the official political committee established by Republican Members of the United States Senate to help Republican candidates develop the campaign resources they need for the 2012 elections.

News On Republican Candidates Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain





Michele Bachmann Announces 2012 Presidential Bid

Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann announced her presidential candidacy from Waterloo, Iowa. Bachmann says,

"Don't mistake my happy memories of growing up here in Waterloo, Iowa as pining for the past. I recognize, it's impossible to turn the clock back and to go back to a different day. Instead, I want this moment to serve as a reminder of the best of who we are as a nation and of what our values are, and what it is to make America great. To recapture its best for the promise of the future. I want my candidacy for the presidency of the United States to stand for a moment when we the people stand once again for the independence from a government that has gotten too big and spends too much and has taken away too much of our liberties."


Bachmann said she is running because she is “profoundly grateful” for the blessings she has received from God and from living in this great country.

She also said she is running because the nation “cannot afford another four years of Barack Obama” as President. Bachmann declared, “We can win in 2012, and we will win.”

Republican Presidential candidate Herman Cain and liberal FOX News analyst Juan Williams agreed last night that:


“Liberals have a problem with black conservatives… You don’t fit in the box. You are jumping out of the pen.”

Wild Thing's comment.....

At this point I am not going to pick anyone. But I did want to share her official announcement and what went on with Cain and Juan.

Michele and Cain are both conservatives so that I am very pleased about. It is just to early to go all out for anyone yet. All I can feel right now is my anger at Obama and I long for someone to really hit him hard in this election. And then also win against him too of course.

U.S. House and Senate Republican Leave Budget Talks After Dems Insist on Job-Killing Tax Hikes ~ GOOD! The Democrats ONLY Want To Tax More!



The Wall Street Journal


U.S. House and Senate Republican negotiators said they were pulling out of the bipartisan budget talks headed by Vice President Joe Biden for now because the group has reached an impasse over taxes that only President Barack Obama and Speaker John Boehner could resolve.

The breakdown was not entirely surprising because, from the start, Democrats have insisted some form of new revenue or tax increases be part of the eventual solution, given the goal of reducing the projected growth in the federal deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years. At the same time, Republicans have been equally firm in rejecting any tax increases. Both sides had a political incentive to resist compromise as long as possible in talks closely watched by their political base.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R., Va.), in an interview after a negotiating session he described as bitterly contentious, said he would not be attending Thursday’s scheduled meeting of the bipartisan deficit-reduction leadership group. Mr. Cantor said he believed it was time for the negotiations to move to a higher level.


“We’ve reached the point where the dynamic needs to change,” Mr. Cantor said. “It is up to the president to come in and talk to the speaker. We’ve reached the end of this phase. Now is the time for these talks to go into abeyance.”
Journal Community


An aide to Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R., Ariz.) also said the lawmaker was withdrawing from the talks. The two have been the GOP representatives in the negotiations for the last six weeks.

“The White House and Democrats are insisting on job-killing tax hikes and new spending,” Mr. Kyl said in a statement. “That proposal won’t address our fiscal crisis, our jobs crisis, or protect and reform entitlements.”


Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) has been sounding an increasingly strident message of opposition to including any tax increases in the budget deal.

I am so proud of Eric Cantor and any of them that stand against the dems!!! All Obama and the dems want to do is tax and stimulus packages.

President Ronald Reagan Sound Bites from 1980 Resonate Across the Fruited Plain




President Ronald Reagan - Liberty State Park




.



RUSH: I want to revisit one more time, Ronaldus Magnus and his reigniting his campaign against Jimmy Carter in 1980 at the Statue of Liberty on September 1st, and this is important. (I'm gonna leave Jon Huntsman out of this time; it's not the point.) The whole Republican Party needs to wake up and understand what's at stake here and how to go about it. We have enough destruction taking place here. To sit here and simply say, "To be nice about this, under the guise of civility, isn't going to get the job done." When you got somebody that's causing great problems, this is how you campaign against them...


REAGAN: The Carter record is a litany of despair, of broken promises, of sacred trusts abandoned and forgotten. His answer to all this misery? He tries to tell us that we're only in a recession, not a depression, as if definitions -- words -- relieve our suffering. Let it show on the record that when the American people cried out for economic help, Jimmy Carter took refuge behind a dictionary. Well, if it's a definition he wants, I'll give him one: A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his!

SUPPORTERS: (cheers and applause)

RUSH: And finally, sound bite 28. There's this...

REAGAN: I'm looking forward to meeting Mr. Carter in debate, confronting him with the whole sorry record of his administration -- the record he prefers not to mention. If he ever finally agrees to the kind of first debate the American people want, which I'm beginning to doubt, he'll answer to them and to me.

SUPPORTERS: (applause)

REAGAN: This country needs a new administration with a renewed dedication to the dream of America, an administration that will give that dream new life and make America great again.


RUSH: That's how you do it.

The Republican Leadership Conference






The video above is the complete speech by Gov. Perry.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry Speaking to the Republican Leadership Conference

In his speech, Perry spoke soaringly of the ideals that America was founded upon, and what has made America great. He urged the crowd to join him in doing whatever it takes to turn the tide of Barack Obama’s runaway spending, runaway interfering, and runaway unemployment.

Perry described the simple economic principles he has followed during his 10 years as Governor of Texas – principles that have result in Texas leading the way in job creation – creating 48% of all the jobs created in America over the last two years:

1. “Don’t spend all the money.” 2. Keep the tax burden low. 3. Reduce regulation on business, and make needed regulations consistent, fair, and predictable so businesses and job creators know what to expect from quarter to quarter. 4. Reign in frivolous lawsuits through lawsuit reform that protects businesses from devastating attacks. He cited the recent passage of “Loser-Pay” legislation as an example of such reforms.


But Perry did more than just give a 3-point plan on the economy. He got at the fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives, between Democrats and Republicans, between Barack Obama and – Rick Perry. Perry cast the 2012 Election as the great decision of the American people about whether an ever-growing, more centralized and intrusive Federal Government knows best, or whether individual Americans know best.

“Our opponents on the left are never going to like us, so let’s stop trying to curry favor with them,” he said, before imploring the crowd to “stand up. Let’s speak with pride about our values. Let’s stop this American downward spiral.”


He acknowledged later with a smile, “I’m preaching to the choir here."


Perry also warned that unless the “runaway train of ObamaCare” is stopped before 2014, it will break and destroy state budgets around the nation with its burdensome requirements. Perry forcefully called on conservatives to stop apologizing for standing up for the most vulnerable among us – the unborn. He clearly is seeking to bring together strong conservative stands on social issues and fiscal issues.

When he finished, the crowd was on their feet chanting, “Run, Rick, Run!”


.


Rep. Michele Bachmann speaking at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans where she slammed President Obama’s radical Environmental Protection Agency for seeking to tell Americans how to live their lives.
Bachmann particularly underlined a bill she has introduced to allow Americans to buy whatever light bulb they want to buy! She pledged: “President Bachmann will allow you to buy any light bulb you want in the United States of America!”




.


Here is a brief video clip of Herman Cain speaking in New Orleans today at the Republican Leadership Conference. Cain told the cheering crowd, “I have a dream.”

He went on:

“In fact, I have two dreams. The first dream that I have is that in November 2012, conservative Republicans are going take back the House and the Senate. I have a dream. I’ve got another dream for 2012. That dream is that you are looking at the next President of the United States of America!”




.

Wild Thing's comment........

There were many others that spoke and the conference lasted for three days.

Each of these three had a lot of highlights of their speeches and especially Perry who was excellent. His is the only one I could find that had the complete speech.

Ron Paul Wins Straw Poll, Huntsman Places Second ~ Good God No Way!





Ron Paul Wins Straw Poll, Huntsman Places Second

Daily Caller


Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul walked away from the Republican Leadership Conference Saturday with another straw poll victory. Paul received 612 of 1542 votes cast, just under 40 percent.

Paul’s campaign characterized the result as a “shockwave” in a message emailed to supporters after the vote.

That shock was palpable in the ballroom of the Hilton Riverside Hotel when Paul’s numbers were announced, with a wave of boos rippling throughout the crowd. The emcee declared, “I’m just the messenger” as Paul’s remaining backers fought back by cheering and clapping.

By the time the remainder of the results had been read and Paul had been confirmed as the winner, the jeering returned, as Paul’s voters on the floor clapped and cried out their candidate’s name. Although Paul’s supporters overflowed into the hallway Friday, most were absent for Saturday’s proceedings.

One Paul supporter, who declined to provide his name, told The Daily Caller that he was “a little disappointed” by the behavior exhibited by some of the supporters of losing candidates.

Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, who spoke Friday, came in third place with 191 votes. Also at the weekend conference were Herman Cain, who scored 104 votes, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, who received 69 votes, and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who won 30 votes.

Perhaps an even bigger surprise than Paul’s win was the second-place finish by former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. Huntsman placed second with 382 votes despite skipping his scheduled appearance Friday, citing health issues. Gov. Mitt Romney, who beat Paul by one vote in a straw poll held here a year ago, came in fifth with 79 votes.

One potential candidate who was not on the straw ballot, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, spoke to a welcoming crowd. Many present were hoping that Perry would announce his own run for President during his address, but it did not happen.


.



Wild Thing's comment......

These are caucus polls, meaning whoever can stack the most people in an auditorium, will win.

Another useless and irrational RLC poll – none of which has EVER been even CLOSE to predicting the actual candidate.


By again voting for Ron Paul, the RLC attendees disgrace and embarrass the REAL conservative movement, which is committed to having candidates that can actually WIN A NATIONAL ELECTION, yet remain true to conservative principles and ideals.

Last Nights Debate in New Hampshire


Debate in New Hampshire tonight was a study in how not to put on a debate. The way the debate was structured was very disjointed, with questions bouncing all over the place, and only a few candidates getting to respond to any one question. That makes it very difficult to differentiate between the candidates. CNN’s John King, from the moment he asked a question, was often muttering in the background to try and get the candidate to stop talking! It was incredibly annoying.




.




Cain/Romney/Gingrich on muslims in government




Wild Thing's comment.......


The candidates need to continue to hammer away at obama and take on a take no prisoner attitude. This is the survival of our beloved country and there is no time to waste. obama is a steam roller of destruction.

0bama is pure evil and our very lives depend on his ouster.


The moderator was John King and he was beyond horrible, totally impatient and rushed for quick replies, giving more time to the person asking the question then those answering . Also OMG he kept doing a low level grunt that his mic was picking up and he would do it while the candidates were trying to answer his questions. John King’s constant background interruptions were ridiculous as were his stupid choice questions. Unbelievable! Audience bio’s time and stupid questions time, but rush the candidates and grunt into your mike througout their answer.


If the GOP can grow some balls, and continue to make ads using Obama’s words against himself, we might have a chance.But again it depends who the candidate is as well.

New Hampshire Republican Debate Tonight



Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu and former New Hampshire Sen. John Sununu preview the CNN New Hampshire debate.



Airtime is 8pm Eastern time on CNN


Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, businessman Herman Cain, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum will participate in the June 13 debate on the campus of Saint Anselm College.

This is the first time that Bachmann, Gingrich and Romney will appear in a 2012 presidential debate. The event is being sponsored by CNN, WMUR and the New Hampshire Union Leader. CNN Chief National Correspondent/Anchor John King will moderate the debate with journalists from WMUR and the Union Leader participating in the questioning.

Former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson was not invited to the first New Hampshire debate of the Republican primary on June 13.

“I respect the right of CNN and the other sponsors of the June 13 New Hampshire Republican presidential primary debate to apply their own criteria and invite who they choose,” Johnson said in a statement Friday. “It is, however, unfortunate that a significant segment of the Republican Party, and more importantly, millions of independent voters who might be Republican voters, will not have a voice on the stage in Manchester.”

Some that were invited will not be there. Jon Hunrtsman and Sarah Palin was also invited but said no.
Huntsman decided to take a pass on the debate, saying that he is not yet an official candidate and still putting the finishing touches on his potential campaign.



Wild Thing's comment........

LOL I liked how Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu said you need more experience then being a community organizer. heh heh a hit at Obama.......... and then he said about Huntsman he said he only supports Republicans. tah dah ! hahaa

Texas Gov. Rick Perry Invites Governors to Prayer Rally August 6th in Houston

Perry Invites Governors to Prayer Rally


FOX News Dallas, Texas


AUSTIN, Texas - Texas Gov. Rick Perry has invited the nation's governors to join him in a prayer day to seek God's guidance to deal with the problems facing America.

The day for prayer and fasting is planned for Aug. 6 in Houston and is sponsored by the American Family Association, a Christian advocacy group. The organization's website says the event is intended to be a non-denominational, apolitical, Christian prayer service.


Texas Governor Rick Perry is putting together for August 6 at Houston’s Reliant Stadium. It is being called, “The Response,” and it will be a massive rally to call the nation to seek God’s guidance through prayer to deal with the economic and moral crisis facing America. Perry has invited the nation’s 49 other Governors to attend, and is partnering with the American Family Association in organizing the event. Perry said in a statement:


“Fellow Americans,

Right now, America is in crisis: we have been besieged by financial debt, terrorism, and a multitude of natural disasters. As a nation, we must come together and call upon Jesus to guide us through unprecedented struggles, and thank Him for the blessings of freedom we so richly enjoy.

Some problems are beyond our power to solve, and according to the Book of Joel, Chapter 2, this historic hour demands a historic response. Therefore, on August 6, thousands will gather to pray for a historic breakthrough for our country and a renewed sense of moral purpose.

I sincerely hope you’ll join me in Houston on August 6th and take your place in Reliant Stadium with praying people asking God’s forgiveness, wisdom and provision for our state and nation. There is hope for America. It lies in heaven, and we will find it on our knees.

Sincerely,

Rick Perry

Governor

President G.W. Bush Nearly Hit In Head By Foul Ball At Baseball Game





“Obviously, I knew (the former president) was there,” Pierzynski said. “When I saw the ball go up, I actually thought I had a chance to catch it. I was going to reach around. I needed about another foot and then I realized I almost jumped in the president’s lap. It was funny. I had Nolan Ryan and George W. Bush sitting within 5 feet of each other.”

“I told him just ’cause he was the president doesn’t mean I wouldn’t jump on top of him. He and his wife got a good chuckle out of it. It was a light moment.”




Wild Thing's comment.......

That was funny and I loved how George and Laura were laughing about it and having a good time.

An Arrogant Newt Gingrich On Greta van Susteren Show Re: Tiffany’s He Says "not playing Trivial Pursuit" and Then Compares Midwest To N. Korea








Greta van Susteren last night where he was trying to do damage control for his comments about Paul Ryan’s Medicare Plan and his support for at least a “variation” on the “individual mandate” in ObamaCare.

But Greta asks him here about a report that he had a bill of between $250,000 – $500,000 at Tiffany’s in New York. Gingrich refused to answer Greta’s question as to whether he had such a large bill and if he had paid it.


Gingrich said he would only talk about issues that matter to the American People, and would not talk about something like that. “I’m not playing Trivial Pursuit.”


At the very end of the segment, Greta said she would love to come out to Iowa and follow him around on the campaign trail if he would allow it.


Gingrich responded with, “It’s not quite North Korea, but come and see what it’s like in the Midwest.”


Oh my. It might be important to know that Greta just returned from North Korea. That’s the context of why Gingrich made the remark. Otherwise, if people don’t know that, Gingrich just compared the Midwest to North Korea !!


Also Newt Gingrich told Greta Van Susteren that he called Rep. Paul Ryan and apologized.

“I made a mistake. And, I called my friend Paul Ryan today and said that.”


.



Wild Thing's comment.......

We already have arrogance in the White House, we don't need another four years of it. Lecturing Greta on how to do an interview, sheesh!

Newt has become mso full of himself he can't see straight.

Rep. Allen West on Plan to Cut Energy Costs, Create Jobs



Rep. Allen West on Plan to Cut Energy Costs, Create Jobs

The price of gas has more than doubled since President Obama took office, West said the administration isn't doing enough to lease areas for drilling offshore and on land. Today, the Florida Congressman pumped gas for commuters at a station in Palm Beach to promote more drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, saying it would eventually bring down prices.


.


Rush Limbaugh says it is an obama ploy and I agree!!!!

"So you have Obama saying he wants to ramp up US oil production by extending existing leases and holding more frequent lease sales, but then the EPA has to approve 'em. EPA can dillydally, EPA can disapprove them, EPA can not take action, but Obama's gotten himself on the right side of the issue with words. So this does not mean we're gonna get more oil. It just means Obama is out saying things that he knows people want to hear, 'cause I'm telling you: It has to be that the internal White House polling on Obama's reelect is bad. Don't doubt me. I will believe more oil drilling when he removes the moratorium. I will believe more oil drilling when I see rigs come back to the Gulf of Mexico."~ Rush Limbaugh




.


Wild Thing's comment........

Obama knows like Rush said about the EPA and we will see but I doubt anything obama has said now will change anything and he knows it. He probably just wanted to get those two courts off his back that were threatening him if he did nto start to let the oil companies drill again.

Congressman LTC Allen West Responds To Obama's Horrible Remarks In Texas







Allen West on Obama "I can't stand the guy"

This was said by West in his response to what obama had said in Texas.

Obama says

Republicans will "never be satisfied" by the amount of border protection he has ordered, even as the border is more dangerous than ever. "Even though we've answered these concerns, I've got to say i suspect there's still some who are trying to move the goal posts on us one more time. You know, they said 'we needed to triple the border patrol.' Well, now they're going to say we need to quadruple the border patrol, or they'll want a higher fence. Maybe they'll need a moat. Maybe they'll want alligators in the moat. They'll never be satisfied."

Huckabee:" I Will Not Seek the Republican Nomination for President" ~ Thank God!




Mike Huckabee said that he would not be joining the race for 2012. After deep personal reflection over the past few months, he recently realized “All the factors say go, but my heart says no.”


He said that his original concerns about raising the necessary funds to be competitive or being able to win in states outside the South were answered when signs of strong financial support materialized and polls showed him winning in states like Pennsylvania, Maine and New Jersey.

This decision was spiritual, not political for him and he sought clarity from Jesus Christ in order to make it. In the end, Huckabee said, “My answer is clear and firm. I will not seek the Republican nomination for president this year.”


.


Wild Thing's comment........

If you’re a Republican, this is the year to run. Either we win this time, or it doesn’t very much matter what happens in the future. We have to get obamacare repealed. And it is NOT an election for wimps, we need strong, take no prisoner attitude imo, someone that will speak up about what obama really is to the public and not mince words about it.


I am not interested in a man that sat on a bench with Pelosi and said what Newt did about Global warming.

I am not interested in a man that has had his own version of obamacare in his home state ala Mitt Romney.


This is all so scary, because this election will save our country or throw it the rest of the way to the hungry socialist Marxist enemy within.

Awesome!!! Congressman LTC Allen West To Office of Management and Budget Administrator Daniel Gordon: If you can’t answer our questions then why are you here?





Politicizing Procurement: Will President Obama’s Proposal Curb Free Speech and Hurt Small Business?

On Thursday, May 12 at 1:30 pm, the House Small Business Committee and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a joint full committee hearing entitled Politicizing Procurement: Will President Obama’s Proposal Curb Free Speech and Hurt Small Business? The hearing took place in room 2154 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

This hearing examined the proposed Obama Executive Order (“EO”) mandating the disclosure of political donations by government contractors as a prerequisite to receiving a government contract, and evaluate its impact and consequences upon the federal acquisition system. Specifically, the Committees was concerned that this proposed EO will inject politics into the procurement process, violated political free speech rights, and usurp the legislative power of Congress.




Wild Thing's comment.......

The EO under discussion clearly has no other purpose than to identify the political affiliations of gov contractors BEFORE they are hired. Unacceptable! The purpose of this executive order is to force political contributors to reveal their identity so that they can be attacked.


This man Gordon is saying that contributions will not be a criterion - but he is lying through his teeth. And Allen West does such a beautiful job showing the world just how much a liar Gordon truly is.

Lt. Col. Lakin Freed To Focus On Family And Career



Here's the first interview with Lieutenant Colonel Terry Lakin after his early release from Fort Leavenworth prison. The interview aired on America's Web Radio yesterday ( 5/13/2011 )


.

Lakin freed to focus on family and career

wnd


Dr. Terry Lakin was released today from Ft. Leavenworth, where he served almost six months of prison time for refusing orders over his doubts about Barack Obama's eligibility to be president, and told WND that he is going to focus on his family first, then his church and medical career.

In comments via telephone shortly after his release, Lakin, a lieutenant colonel in the military, told WND that he also remains dedicated to the Christian ideals on which the United States was founded.

Lakin declined to respond to military orders because he was denied answers to his questions about the legitimacy of Obama's presidency. He then was court-martialed after the judge decided she would not allow him to present his arguments or his witnesses.


Questions during the brief interview were restricted by Lakin's advisers because of the pending status of an appeal of the military court's decision, as well as a request for clemency that remains unaddressed.

His release came after a standard reduction in time for good behavior.


Lakin's contention was that Obama may be ineligible, and therefore his orders would be illegal. He had pleaded through his chain of command for answers to his questions, but was refused.


After Lakin had served most of his sentence, Obama released an copy of a "Certificate of Live Birth" suggesting a Hawaii birth for the president. But analysts have criticized it as fraudulent and critics noted that the image revealed Barack Obama Sr. as his father, and since he never was American, argue that it simply proves Obama's ineligibility.

They say the American founders were influenced by Emmerich de Vattel's Law of Nations, in which a "natural born citizen" is defined as a citizen born of two citizen parents on the nation's soil.


Under that definition, Obama is disqualified from eligibility for the presidency because of his Kenyan father.

The action fund, which generated support for Lakin's family during his incarceration, also has planned a welcome back for Lakin when he returns to Baltimore.

In a statement on the action fund website, officials described how Lakin was allowed to cash out his $40 prison account today and was taken by van to a park-and-ride in eastern Leavenworth.

"We hand Terry a netbook running Skype so he can talk to his family. The children are home waiting for his call. Pili [Lakin's wife] appears on the screen with a huge smile. 'Come here kids, your dad is on the phone!' Holly, Jack and Andrew rush over. Jack, the 3-year-old, takes over the screen making faces and laughing."

After a call to his parents, Lakin was on the line with WND.

He said getting back to his family is the "most important thing right now." Then is getting established in "a good Christian church near our house."


Then comes "taking care of my medical career."

He said while he was incarcerated, he found a great deal of encouragement from the cards and "uplifting letters" that fans sent, sometimes at the rate of 30-40 per day.

"People were sending me pictures of their families, telling me about their concerns," he said. "I tried to make it the most positive experience I could. It was an experience for self-reflection on my Christian faith."


He said he also read a great deal, starting out with "The 5000 Year Leap," which he found on a shelf the first day he worked in the library.


He also studied "Liberty and Tyranny." He also read the writings of Chuck Colson, Lee Strobel, C.S. Lewis and John Eidsmoe.

He was enlightened by his stay.

"I love medicine and want to remain in medicine," he said. "But I now see another group that needs medical services."

He said he feels he was able to help inmates at the prison, through teaching math and English classes, working with the chapel program and providing a voice of influence that other inmates perhaps might not have.

"I'm just kind of amazed where we lost track in the history lessons I had growing up of how firmly based our Founders were in Christianity," he said. "They wanted to maintain freedom of religion, not freedom from religion."

While he was incarcerated, Lakin remained under the Uniform Code of Military Justice but was allowed to post online a series of observations he's made while serving his time.

Lakin also earned the support of several prominent, high-ranking, retired officers during his battle, including Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely and Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney.


Kerchner had noted that Lakin, before publicly challenging Obama's eligibility to serve as president under the Constitution's "natural born citizen" requirement – an issue that remains unresolved – had gone through every available channel seeking resolution.

"Terry had been questioning Obama's eligibility for over two years, and not only did he go to his elected representatives; he used a formal path available to soldiers, filling out a form or writing a letter, to request a congressional inquiry," Kerchner told The Post & Email at the time.

"If a soldier is having some issue with the military chain of command or for any reason feels that he has been unjustly treated, there is the Article 138 where you can directly ask your senior chain of command about it. He also filed another form or letter to request a congressional inquiry; he requested more than once that an investigation be done about Obama's eligibility because as an officer, he had sworn an oath to the U.S. Constitution. He had great doubts that Obama was eligible, and he wanted them to investigate, and they didn't even answer him," Kerchner explained.

"The Congress did nothing. Terry, as a soldier, had a further right to one, and he didn't even get an answer. For example, if you allege that your commanding officer is mistreating you, Congress investigates those allegations. Terry asked for a congressional inquiry because no one in his chain of command was answering his questions, and they didn't answer him. He felt he was being unjustly treated and ignored by his chain of command in their not addressing or answering his questions about the eligibility of Obama to be the commander-in-chief and president," he said in the lengthy interview with Rondeau.

President Bush Declines Invite From Community Organizer BC Challenged Obama To Go To Ground Zero ~ Good For Bush!!!!





Bush declines NYC invite


President George W. Bush has turned down President Barack Obama’s invitation to join him at ground zero on Thursday, citing his desire to avoid the media glare.

“President Bush appreciated the invite, but has chosen in his post-presidency to remain largely out of the spotlight,” Bush spokesman David Sherzer told POLITICO in an email Tuesday night. “He continues to celebrate with all Americans this important victory in the war on terror.”

Obama — who has sharply criticized Bush for neglecting the hunt for bin Laden by invading Iraq — made the offer to Bush shortly after he decided on his New York trip, according to two people familiar with the situation.


Obama, who last visited the site as a presidential candidate in 2008!


.


Wild Thing's comment.........


So glad GW said NO. Obama would just use him and especially after all the blame Bush from obama, too much for too long.

What still gets me is how obama goes there now and has not been there since 2008 during his campaign. He is soooooooooooooooo horrible.

Mitt Romney : "... we're going to have to hang the Obama Misery Index around his neck"





ROMNEY: "Ronald Reagan came up with this great thing about the Misery Index? And he hung that around Jimmy Carter's neck and that had a lot to do with Jimmy Carter losing. Well we're going to have to hang the Obama Misery Index around his neck.


And I'll tell you, the fact that you've got people in this country really squeezed with gasoline getting so expensive, with commodities getting so expensive, families are having a hard time making ends meet. So we're going to have to do talk about that, and housing foreclosures and bankruptcies and and hire taxation. We're going to hang him with that so to speak, metaphorically, with, uh, you have to be careful"

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney stumbled into controversial territory Friday night at a forum for potential presidential candidates here, suggesting that Republicans “hang” President Obama with a so-called “Misery Index.”

Romney, an all-but-declared presidential contender, was answering a question at an Americans For Prosperity event about what he would do to curb rising gas prices when he suddenly found his way into -- and then quickly out of -- the verbal gaffe.

“We’re going to hang the Obama Misery Index around his neck,” Romney told a crowd of conservative activists, before saying: “We’re going to hang him with that, so to speak.”
Apparently realizing his choice of words, Romney paused, and added “metaphorically.”
“You have to be careful these days,” he said.Romney's reference to the “Misery Index,” was, as he acknowledged, a throwback to a term that then-presidential candidate Ronald Reagan used to describe public discontent about economic conditions during debates with incumbent President Jimmy Carter during the 1980 election.

"It is not what the governor meant and that was very clear in what he actually said," Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul told ABC News



Wild Thing's comment......

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 stand by for the media to rip up Mitt.


What ticks me off are all the attacks from obama and his threats to we the people and he gets a pass.

Donald Trump in Vegas: 'Our leaders are stupid'






Donald Trump in Vegas: 'Our leaders are stupid'


AP


Real estate developer Donald Trump unleashed a tirade of profanity in a speech at a boisterous Las Vegas casino as he assured a crowd of adoring supporters Thursday night that he is seriously weighing a presidential run and will make a decision soon.

During a 30-minute stump speech focused mostly on foreign affairs, Trump sprinkled in a number of insults directed toward the nation’s leaders.

Donald Trump blasted the stupid people in the Obama Administration last night at an event in Las Vegas. The businessman also said had a few choice words for OPEC and China.


“Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people,” he said. “It’s just very, very sad.”


The setting was fitting for the casino mogul whose moniker is draped across the gold-tinged Trump International Hotel & Tower just off the Las Vegas Strip. An open bar greeted more than 1,000 people, waiters passed hors d’oeuvres and a Trump impersonator entertained the crowd…


…He said he wouldn’t help struggling nations such as South Korea or Libya without payment and promised to use swear words while negotiating with China.


“I’m not interested in protecting none of them unless they pay,” he said.





Wild Thing's comment.......

We may or may not agree with everything Trump says. But what I do like is how he speaks up and I hope the rest of the politicians will see that we reacted VERY positive to Sarah Paliln as well, because she spoke up even while McCain the rino was trying to silence her.

Unlike Photo Op Obama With Our Troops, President Bush Honors Commitment to Wounded War Heroes



.

President Bush Honors Commitment to Wounded War Heroes

News West 9


TERLINGUA--The heroes of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom are trained to never give up until the fighting is done. For the wounded, that fight continues long after they come back home.

As a sign of his commitment to these brave men and women, former President George W. Bush joined them on the Warrior 100 bike ride.

"So I just finished a ride with men and women, who served our country and lost a limb or were seriously injured and decided not to give up, recovered and rode across the desert," President Bush said.

14 U.S. servicemen and women may be been left physically broken, scarred and changed for life by their service in Iraq and Afghanistan. But, it was because of their grit, honor and fortitude that the former president joined them on the Warrior 100, a 100K mountain bike ride through Big Bend.

"I'm riding as hard as I could possibly ride and I look over my shoulder and there's a one legged guy, barely breathing. If you're having a problem out there, just think about some of these guys who had real problems and decided to do something about it," President Bush said.

These heroes were total strangers when they met on Monday. That doesn't mean they didn't already have many things in common.

"(That's) all I can say, really. It's an honor to be out here with him. I respect the man, greatly," Retired U.S. Army SFC Dylan Beard, said, while choking back tears.

According to Retired Army SSgt, Kevin Butler, "I think, what's important about today, we got to show we're not giving up and it could help inspire other people and fellow wounded guys that could be sitting in the hospital bed right now and they see this on the news and say, 'hey, that's going to be me once I get my prosthetic or get out of this hospital bed and get well.'"

"It doesn't matter what branch we are, if someone's fallen behind, they're going to pick them up and help them move on," Retired Army Spc. Jacob Learner, said.

For these war heroes, sharing a bike trail with the former Commander in Chief was exciting enough. But finding out the President brought a guest of his own, that was icing on the cake.

"What is most important is that we support, encourage and absolutely welcome home these brave men and women that served our country," former Tour de France Champ, Lance Armstrong, said.

The Warrior 100 highlights the contributions, made by organizations, that support the troops and their families, while they're deployed and once they come back.

These men and women represent groups like Ride 2 Recovery and The Wounded Warrior Project, among others. The W100 was the inaugural event of the Social Enterprise initiative of the George W. Bush Presidential Center. According to the man himself, it won't be the last.

"I'm going to announce something, next week, another sporting event, not mountain biking but another sport. I might as well tell you, golf," the former president joked.

If given the choice to do it all again or do something differently, what would their answer be, after giving their all on the battle field and even more on the dusty trail?

For Learner, the answer was simple, "If I knew I was going to deploy, step on a land mine and be in this predicament, I would do it all over again."

Former Air America Host Arrested After Heckling Rep. Allen West at Town Hall



The Palm Beach Post has identified former Air America radio host Nicole Sandler as the woman who was arrested and led out of a town hall meeting in handcuffs after she heckled Rep. Allen West and got into a confrontation with the Republican congressman’s wife.


.






A far left heckler was arrested at Rep. Allen West‘s town hall Tuesday Evening in Fort Lauderdale. Several other hecklers were later asked to leave. Of course, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) kept his cool . Love this man!

Immediately after Allen West took the stage at his Town Hall meeting on Tuesday Evening in Fort Lauderdale, several hecklers who were planted in the crowd began to jeer and interrupt his remarks, forcing West to pause several times and then continue once the crowd calmed down. Police were ultimately forced to removed one of the hecklers from the event. When the hecklers refused to stop their harassment, West stated, “You’re not going to intimidate me.”

Minutes later, a woman sitting behind West’s wife , who had been acting in a disruptive and combative manner by yelling at the Congressman and even harrassing his wife, was asked to leave and was escorted out of the event by Fort Lauderdale Police. As this unidentified woman was being removed from the proceedings, she continued her tirade and used an expletive to address a police officer, which resulted in the officer arresting the woman for trespassing.

Unlike YOU Obama Voters These College Kids Love America and Are Smart!



This is a new ad by the College Republican National Committee (CRNC) that challenges President Obama’s claim that his agenda is “winning the future.” It points out that thanks to Obama’s massive spending, the interest alone on the nation’s debt over the next decade will be “$5 Trillion.” Instead of “winning the future,” Obama is “losing the future.”

The ad is set to run in Iowa to urge college-age people to get involved in the political process there.

Rep. Allen West: Obama Displays 'Third World Dictator-like Arrogance' ~ Allen West Speaks The Truth!






FOX Nation

The Laura Ingraham Show, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) compared the president's arrogance to that of a "third world dictator." He also dismissed Michelle Obama's military outreach campaign as nothing more than an effort to pick off conservative voters.

On Michelle Obama's military outreach campaign:


"I think it's part and parcel with the fact that you heard the president announce his campaign, getting that kicked off, and of course you have to try to go out there and garner votes from what is a very conservative group of individuals--that's the United States military."


On Austan Goolsbee's remark that S&P made a "political judgement":


"They don't want to hear the truth. ... They're so used to having the cheering, adoring mainstream media that is nothing more than their own cast of cheerleaders, much the same as an episode of "Glee," and that's what they appreciate more than having real individuals sitting back and assessing this economic situation."


"What you continue to see is a third world dictator-like arrogance, that's what I saw in that speech [by Obama] last week. And look, Laura, to borrow a phrase from Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the chickens are coming home to roost."


"What you continue to see is a third world dictator-like arrogance, that’s what I saw in that speech [by Obama] last week. And look, Laura, to borrow a phrase from Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the chickens are coming home to roost...This whole talk about shared prosperity–that really gives me the goosebumps because I’m starting to believe that a community organizer is nothing but a low-level socialist agitator"



Wild Thing's comment.........

“A community organizer is nothing but a low level socialist agitator”

I LOVE how West speaks the truth. I would love to see debate between West and obama. West would have smoke coming out of all ends of obama. LOL

Gov. Jindal Will Sign 'birther' Bill If It Reaches His Desk



Gov. Bobby Jindal would sign a bill requiring presidential candidates to provide a copy of their birth certificate to qualify for the Louisiana ballot if it reaches his desk, a spokesman said Monday.


NOLA.com


“It’s not part of our package, but if the Legislature passes it we’ll sign it,” press secretary Kyle Plotkin said.


House Bill 561 was filed last week by two Republican lawmakers. President Barack Obama’s citizenship has been challenged by some groups, derisively called “birthers,” despite numerous independent investigations finding that documents and contemporary news reports show that Obama was born in Hawaii.

The bill by state Rep. Alan Seabaugh, R-Shreveport, and Sen. A.G. Crowe, R-Slidell, would require federal candidates who want to appear on Louisiana ballots to file an affidavit attesting to their citizenship, which would have to be accompanied by an “original or certified copy” of their birth certificate.

The requirement also would apply to candidates for U.S. Senate or the House of Representatives.



Wild Thing's comment........

I hope it does get to his desk, I bet Gov. Jindal is still ticked at obama for the NON drilling for oil. obama is totally at fault for the pirce of gas, the lost jobs connected to drilling and Jindal knows it.

President G.W. Bush Honors Wounded Warriors With A Bike Ride In The Desert



Bush honors wounded warriors with a bike ride in the desert


President George W. Bush loves his mountain bike, and later this month he'll hit the road to honor wounded veterans.


From April 25-27, Bush will host the "Warrior 100," a 100-kilometer mountain bike ride in the Big Bend of Texas with 14 service members wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.


"I'll be riding across the deserts of Texas with wounded warriors to show the unbelievable character of our men and women in uniform," Bush said in a statement released by his office. "It's a 100-kilometer ride in the desert, and it's not a leisurely ride; it's a ride to herald people who were dealt a severe blow and said, 'I'm not going to let it tear me down.'"

Congressman Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) Scolds Christiane Amanpour and Media for Not Criticizing Obama More ~ Good For Joe!!!




Republican Joe Walsh tells Christiane "I don't know why your profession hasn't gotten on him more"


Tea Party Congressman Scolds Christiane Amanpour and Media for Not Criticizing Obama More


Newsbusters


Tea Party Congressman Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) had quite an illuminating discussion with Christiane Amanpour Sunday.

As the host of ABC's "This Week" pushed for higher taxes, Walsh correctly pointed out that Barack Obama's first 2012 budget proposed earlier in the year didn't address entitlement programs saying, "The President of the United States ought to be ashamed of himself, and I don't know why your profession hasn't gotten on him more

WALSH:

Christiane, I've said this before. But, and Steve will say this, in the '80s government revenues went up. We didn't cut spending. Revenues went up in the ’80s. Every time we’ve cut taxes revenues have gone up, the economy has grown. Look, Christiane, I've said this before. The President of the United States ought to be ashamed of himself, and I don't know why your profession hasn't gotten on him more. Two months ago he presents a budget and doesn't even talk about entitlement reform. And then all of a sudden last week he gets a redo? The Republicans are leading on this, perfectly prepared to take whatever political hits we have to take, because the crisis is so severe. I wish he’d be a part of this.



Wild Thing's comment........

When I was watching this Sunday morning, I was so surprised to hear someone say this. I am so glad Joe said what he did about the media. Of course Christiane Amanpour did nto even acknowledge what he had said.

We have waited a long time for our Republican leadership to be more bold and where we never saw it before, ever since November we are starting to see more and more of it.

Sarah Palin and Andrew Breitbart At A Tea Party Rally In Wisconsin ~ Fantastic Speech by Sarah!!!




Here’s the FULL 22 min. youtube video which includes James T. Harris introducing Andrew Breitbart and Breitbart’s short intro of Palin

There were between 10,000 and 15,000 patriots in attendance.




This video BELOW is Sarah's speech if you don't want to hear the one above with the added speeches. ~ Wild Thing



Palin Wows Wisconsin Tea Partiers With Blistering Speech; To Obama: 'You Ignored Us in 2010, You Cannot Ignore Us in 2012' from Breitbart on Vimeo.



From yesterday , Andrew Breitbart and Gov. Sarah Palin speaking at a Tea Party Rally in Madison, Wisconsin, at the State Capitol.

Breitbart introduced Palin, and addressed hecklers while he spoke, telling them to “Go to hell,” and also said, “We are witnessing the end of community organizing. The silent majority won.”

Palin then took the stage, and during her remarks was also heckled by protesters on the edge of the crowd. She told the assembled crowd that Madison is the “front line” of the battle for our country. She told the hecklers that Gov. Scott Walker is “trying to save your pensions.”

"You Ignored Us in 2010, You Cannot Ignore Us in 2012′
“We’re here. We’re clear. Get used to it.”


"We didn’t elect you just to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic," Palin said during a rally in front of the Wisconsin statehouse in Madison. "What we need from you, GOP, is to fight." Pointing to the national champion University of Wisconsin women's hockey team, Palin said the GOP could learn from its resolve and “needs to learn how to fight like a girl."

Palin took issue with the GOP leadership for promising $100 billion in cuts from the current budget, trimming that pledge to $60 billion and finally settling for $38 billion in the recent budget battle.


"Then after some politics as usual and accounting gimmicks we found out — ya know that $38 billion? We’re actually borrowing that $38 billion," Palin said. "That is not courage, that is capitulation."

Palin told the crowd that the “2012 Election begins here. . . . We will fight for America, and it starts here in Madison, Wisconsin. . . . Mr. President – Game on!”


Wild Thing's comment.......

GREAT speech by Sarah!!! Fantastic!!! Palin was very energizing and true to the spirit of liberty.


I was cracking up the way she said, Oh-Ba-mah. She strung the name out in a mocking way. And then said, “You lie.”


LOL Karl Rove is going to be very unhappy. He was on Greta Friday night . And in between calling Donald Trump a joke, and Michele Bachmann not serious, he was also defending the $38 billion in cuts.

I also loved what she said about the GOP.

Marco Rubio Handles Heckler at Tea Party with Aplomb


Great response from Marco Rubio at a Tea Party rally at the bandshell in Orlando's Lake Eoloa Park

Marco Rubio To Heckler: "This is the Best Heckler I've Ever Had So Congratuations"

FOX News


Attending a Tea Party rally Friday in Orlando, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio tore into President Barack Obama for giving what he described as a campaign speech earlier this week instead of issuing a genuine budget plan.


"The president the other day didn't offer a budget, he offered a speech, a partisan speech, it was a campaign speech,"


Rubio said to a FOX Orlando reporter after the junior senator spoke to thousands of cheering Florida Tea Partyists. "He has to lead."


"These generational issues that our country faces can't be solved unless the president leads and he doesn't want to lead, he'd rather get re-elected than solve our problems, and I think that's a mistake," Rubio added.

US House Passes Ryan Amendment to Cut $6.2 Trillion Spending Bill



Paul Ryan: Our Generation's Defining Moment


Paul Ryan Closing Statement FY2012 Budget Resolution



The US House passed the Ryan Amendment today by a 235-193 vote.

International Business Times

The US House of Representatives has passed a budget plan for 2012 which seeks to reduce $6.2 trillion in spending by the government over the next decade.

Fiscal 2012 begins on October 1.

The bill passed the Republican-controlled House by 235-193 vote (only four Republicans failed to approve it; and not one Democrat passed it, according to Reuters).

Proposed by Republican Congressman Paul Ryan, the scheme would cut spending on social programs for the poor, for healthcare and would require the elderly to increase their healthcare cost burden.

Rep. LTC Allen West - $39 Billion Deal Struck In Congress






Rep. Allen West will vote no on budget deal

The Hill

Rep. Allen West is against the bipartisan budget deal between Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and the Obama administration.

West (R-Fla.) told The Hill that $39 billion in cuts is insufficient. Asked whether he was pleased with the agreement on policy riders, West responded, "It's all about the money."

West, a freshman who is popular with the Tea Party, said he is a firm "no" on the measure, which will be voted on next week.

Eric Cantor: We Will Not Leave Town Until We Cut Spending & Get Our Fiscal House In Order




Eric Cantor: We Will Not Leave Town Until We Cut Spending & Get Our Fiscal House In Order

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor promised the American people yesterday:


“We will not leave town until we cut spending and get our fiscal house in order.”


The Republicans gave him a standing ovation. The democrats sat on their fannies.



Boehner: 'Far more than one provision' holding up agreement


The Hill

Meanwhile, the House planned to move forward Thursday with a bill extending funding for one week and financing the military for a year. The legislation, which also includes an abortion restriction for the District of Columbia, is designed to pressure Senate Democrats. “There is no policy reason for the Senate to oppose this,” Boehner said. Republicans have dubbed the measure a “troop funding bill,” and the Speaker cited the U.S. involvement in “a third war” in Libya as a reason to pass it.

Obama on Thursday afternoon threatened to veto it. ( Please see my other post about this and what obama is doing ~ Wild Thing ) The sharp rhetoric earlier Thursday contrasted with a sense Wednesday night that the two sides were making slow progress toward a deal. Boehner and Reid made a joint appearance following a White House meeting in which they emphasized their desire to avoid a government shutdown.

They also said their staffs would work through the night in continued talks.

Reid said negotiators have basically agreed to the total level of cuts for the rest of fiscal 2011 but strong disagreement remains over controversial policy riders.

“The numbers are basically there,” Reid said. “But I’m not nearly as optimistic — and that’s an understatement — as I was 11 hours ago. The numbers are extremely close. Our differences are no longer over how much savings we get on government spending.

“The only thing holding up an agreement is an ideology,” Reid told the Senate’s presiding chair. “I’m sorry to say, Mr. President, my friend the Speaker and the Republican leadership have drawn a line in the sand, not dealing with a deficit we know we have to deal with.

“The two main issues holding this matter up are the choice of women, reproductive rights, and clean air,” Reid said. “These matters have no place in a budget bill.”

Reid said the president and Democratic leaders would not give any more ground in the talks.

“We have given everything that we can give,” he said.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) responded immediately by blaming Senate Democrats for the impasse.


“This bill does everything Democrats have previously said they want. It cuts Washington spending by an amount that Democrat leaders believe is reasonable. The policy prescriptions it contains have been previously agreed to by Democrat leaders and signed by the president. And, most importantly, this is the only proposal out there that keeps the government open," he said, according to prepared remarks released by his office.


He pointed out that Democrats haven't released a plan to keep the government running.

"Since they have produced no alternative to the bill that the House is sending over today, this is the only proposal currently on the table that will keep the government open," he said.

“In other words, if a shutdown does occur, our Democrat friends have no one to blame but themselves — because they have done nothing whatsoever to prevent it," he added. "So rather than talking about a shutdown, I hope our Democrat friends join us in actually preventing one. There is one way to do that — by quickly passing the House bill and sending it to the president for his signature before tomorrow night.” Reid on Thursday said the House one-week measure, which Boehner described as a "reasonable troop funding" bill, would not pass the Senate.

“The House is now going to pass a short-term stopgap, it’s a non-starter over here,” Reid said. “Doing that is an assured way to close the government. There are no more short-term extensions.”

Reid said he could agree to a short-term measure to keep government operating as long as it did not include controversial policy riders.

“We’ll be happy to do a clean CR, one that will allow us to work out the details of an agreement,” Reid told reporters Thursday afternoon in reference to a continuing resolution to extend funding.

Senate Democratic Policy Committee Chairman Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) dismissed a question about the possibility of the Senate amending the House's one-week stopgap and putting the ball back in Boehner’s court.

“Our focus right now is to try and get a deal because this short-term, short-term, short-term doesn’t work,” he said “Let’s wait and see what happens at the [1 p.m.] White House meeting.”

In his own floor remarks on Thursday, Boehner rejected assertions that the House bill is bound to go nowhere.


"There's no policy reason for the Senate to oppose this responsible troop funding bill that keeps the government running," he said. "It reflects a bicameral, bipartisan agreement that was reached in December regarding the troop funding bill, and no Senator has objected to the policy in this bill."


Boehner added that "no one" wants a government shutdown, and called on the Senate to "follow the House in taking these responsible steps to support our troops and keep our government open."


Obama, in a rare late-night appearance in the White House briefing room Wednesday, said it would "inexcusable" to shut down the government over political issues.

Liberal PBS Reporter Judy Woodruff Interviews Rep. Paul Ryan on Proposed Cuts: 'Our Budget Literally Pays Off the Debt'






GOP Rep. Paul Ryan talking with PBS reporter Judy Woodruff about his proposed 2012 Federal Budget that was unveiled yesterday.

This video shows just how effective Paul Ryan is in thinking on his feet and handling the attacks from the Left. Woodruff tries everything she can to make Ryan and the plan look bad. Again and again she asks leading questions designed to cast the plan in a negative light – “So your plan would end Medicare as we know it?” – but Ryan would have none of it. At every point, he was able to refute the insinuations and negative characterizations of what the GOP approach will accomplish.


Ryan flatly told Woodruff that President Obama’s direction for the buget would double the debt by the end of his first term and triple the debt in the following years. In contrast, what he and the GOP are proposing would “literally pay down the debt.” Essentially, the choice being set before the nation is unending, burgeoning debt or solvency.

Paul Ryan is really impressive in both his grasp of the budget issues, and his ability to communicate on the topic in a way that makes sense.



Wild Thing's comment........


We really do have some great people in the Republican party. I pray every day for them to stay strong and know we support their efforts.

We have to get more conservatives elected and then also get rid of the rino's.

Rep LTC Allen West ~ Greatness In This Hero!!!




Transcript from The Right Scoop

Speech given April 1, 2011

Thank you for being here because this shows your commitment to your country. This shows your commitment to the principles and values upon which this country was established. And you know some of the things that people continue to ask me, they continue to ask me “well, why won’t you compromise, why won’t you negotiate?”. We’ll let me tell you something. Abraham Lincoln said very succinctly, he said “plant your feet in the right place and then stand firm”, and so I’m gonna be standing firm.


When I was a young Lieutenant and I was going through airborne school, the sergeant black hat said very simply:
If you set the bar low you jump low. ” You did not send us up here to set the bar low. You sent us up here with some expectations. You sent us with a mandate. You sent us up here believing that we were here to do the things, to turn around this great ship of state called the United States of America. Because right now, this leaderless, rudderless ship is out in the maelstrom about to get tossed on the rocks.


And I’m sick and tired of hearing everyone talk about this great constitutional, conservative grass roots movement called the Tea Party. I am sick and tired of them trying to blame you, I am sick and tired of them trying to castigate you in a negative manner. No one says anything about Moveon.org; no one says anything about Organizing for America. You are what this country was founded upon and I am glad to be standing her with you.


We are not here to talk about shutting down the government. But if you want to know about shutting down the government, go right over there and talk to Chuck Schumer, go talk to Harry Reid, go down to 1600 Pennsylvania and talk to the President. We’re here to talk about the incredible fiscal irresponsibility.

And I gotta tell you something. Why would I want to sit down and compromise with people who enhanced this problem we have in America with the three years of deficit spending – 1.42 trillion, 1.29 trillion, 1.65 trillion. The debt in the past four years has gone up 5 trillion dollars. Why do I want to listen to people like that. Because I don’t think that they are going to give me any good solutions.


The bottom line is this: we have got to turn this ship around. I am not going to lower my standards, I am not going to do anything but stand upon the values you sent me up her for!

For twenty two years you asked me to do one simple thing. You asked me to always protect your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. You asked me to guard the great symbols of this country. In November of 2010 you gave me the privilege and honor of to take off a uniform, put on a suit and tie and continue to serve you.

I will continue to protect you. I will continue to protect your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. I will not let you down!

God bless you all, God bless America, and thank you to the tea party.

To Republican Politicians WATCH This Video and LEARN As President Reagan Takes On Obama, Rino McCain, Pelosi





Reagan beats up on Obama, McCain, Pelosi...and Clooney.




Wild Thing's comment.........


Excellent video! We still have too few elected Republicans that are strong against the left in office. They need to be reminded we meant what we said at the Tea Parties and Townhalls. Why we have to keep at them is a big disappointment but we do. John Boehner for example has his moments of doing and saying the right thing, being strong, then he will turn around and show weakness........NOT Good! It has to be consistent or it won't help.
Not only Speaker Boehner but many others as well.


The left is good at wearing people down, they never stop, and it does get more then tiresome, more stress every day at their crap they dish out. What I wish is that those we elected would FINALLY realize that we are maxed out with the stress of obama and the rest of the progressives BS, to a breaking point many of us and we have had ENOUGH! There is a limit to how much a person can stand and if they can't be strong for us, be our voice and do what has to be done without the slide into RINOville they then are cowards and we do not want them. PERIOD!

They get hate mail, trolls at their facebook pages, ( Boehner has tons of trolls from the left at his) but they need to realize we get this too and we can't even call a press conference to tell of obama and the left, or push a bill through or any of the things they can do to keep the left from getting what they want. And that is frustrating for us.

One last thing, all of this makes it even more upsetting when so many have served our country and see all this happening. Our Veterans deserve better, they deserve to have the awesome America it can be and has been so much in the past.

Get rid of obamacare it is already costing us money right now in our insurance going up.
Get rid of the freaking stupid light bulb BS, the enviro detergents that do NOT clean and leave a gray color to white clothes, towels, sheets etc.
Let us DRILL FOR OIL, we have more then enough, much more then enough.
NO TO Cap and Trade
NO to insane R.O.E.'S that get our troops killed and injured.

Speak out about Obama's birth certificate it is not right that he get away with what he has done on this. His guilt screams out to the world when he has paid over $2 Million to fight this in courts. How much more guilty does a person have to look to do something like that. And where is the $2 Million coming from????? Out tax dollars??????

And all of THIS is not even all the things that need attention.

Senator Marco Rubio: America Can't Survive Another Obama Term





Why I Won't Vote to Raise the Debt Limit

The Wall Street Journal

Everyone in Washington knows how to cut spending. The time to start is now. .

CLICK HERE TO READ ARTICLE BY MARCO RUBIO

Excellent article written by Marco at the Wall Street Journal ~ Wild Thing



Below is a write up from Liberty Action Report about Marco and his stand.


Today, ALG ( Americans for Limited Government ) President Bill Wilson praised Senator Marco Rubio for his "courageous stand" against increasing the $14.294 trillion federal debt ceiling


Senator Rubio outlined his conditions for approving any increase in the ceiling, which will be hit between April 15th and May 31st according to U.S. Treasury estimates.

"I will vote to defeat an increase in the debt limit unless it is the last one we ever authorize and is accompanied by a plan for fundamental tax reform, an overhaul of our regulatory structure, a cut to discretionary spending, a balanced-budget amendment, and reforms to save Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid," wrote Senator Rubio.

Wilson said Rubio's conditions were "reasonable." He explained, "Look, with a national debt that has already soared above $14 trillion that will become larger than the entire economy, soon the debt will become too large to even refinance, let alone ever be repaid." By 2021, the Office of Management and Budget projects the national debt will soar to over $25 trillion.

"If Senate Republicans cannot use their leverage on the debt ceiling vote to achieve significant concessions, including a Balanced Budget Amendment, to turn the Ship of State around now, will assuredly sink into the Abyss in the not-so-distant future," Wilson warned.

Currently, the $14.2 trillion national debt already stands at 95.5 percent of the nation's $14.8 trillion Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Wilson said it was unclear at what percentage of debt-to-GDP that the debt becomes too large to refinance, but that "the warning signs are already there that we cannot even meet our current obligations honestly."

"Right now, we're currently meeting our financing obligations by having the Federal Reserve simply print money to buy debt. Anyone ever heard of the Weimar Republic? How'd that work out for them?" Wilson asked.

The Weimar Republic experienced hyperinflation in 1920's as it attempted to print money to honor its war debts and reparations, destabilizing the country and leading directly to its fall.

Pimco reports that in 2009, 80 percent of treasuries were purchased by the Federal Reserve, and in 2010, it had to buy 70 percent, bringing its current U.S. debt holdings to $1.3 trillion. "The Fed is the largest lender to the U.S. government in the world, more than China or Japan. When the Fed ends QE2 in June, it will likely keep a high water mark of $1.5 trillion in treasuries holdings. That means it will still be buying U.S. debt to aid in refinancing," Wilson explained.

"Republicans need to do a better job of explaining the fiscal catastrophe we face, and what will happen if the debt is allowed to become too large to even refinance," Wilson noted.

"If the GOP cannot articulate what will happen to this country, specifically, if Congress fails to act and the debt soars to over $25 trillion in a decade, it will undercut their case for real fiscal reform," Wilson explained. "Either the debt will become too large to service, or it can continue to grow forever with no danger. If members truly believe that indeed it can get too large, then Senate Republicans' time to act is now."

Wilson concluded, "This is not just about getting an up-or-down vote on a Balanced Budget Amendment. This is about actually making certain that the debt ceiling never needs to be increased again. Senator Rubio's stand is an example all members should emulate. He's trying to save his country before it's too late, and we applaud him for that."

Rep. LTC Allen West on Libya: "Serious problems..."





Rep. Allen West talking about U.S. involvement in Libya. West said Obama waited to long to act in helping opposition rebel forces, allowing Gadhafi to seize the momentum. Having waited too long, West said there is now no clearly defined mission for what we are doing in Libya. Since Obama has said there will be no ground troops in Libya, it is unlikely Gadhafi will be forced from power any time soon. West said, “you are not going to protect civilians” or get rid og Gadhafi “from 30,000 ft. in the air.”

West does not favor use of ground troops in Libya, but doubts the current military action will be able to oust Gadhafi – meaning there is no clearly defined purpose for the action. West pointed out that if the purpose is to protect civilians, does that mean we will intervene in Yemen, Bahrain, etc.? He called what Obama has done “a dangerous precedent.”



.



TWO years ago, Barack Obama made this little dig on Bush during remarks to service members at the Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida in October 2009.

“I Promise I will never rush the decision to send you in harms way.”


Obama fails to grasp the gravity of going to war.


Washington Examiner


“I am completely mystified,” says former top Bush aide Karl Rove, who supports the Libya intervention, “that this administration, of all administrations, makes a decision on a Tuesday night and does not bother to call anybody in Congress until Friday morning, 90 minutes before the policy is going to be executed, to tell them what is going to happen. Can you imagine what would have happened if we had tried to do that? We’d have been barbecued!”


There’s also the question of why Obama did not explain his decision to the public in a forum that conveyed the gravity of the situation. After ordering troops into action, the president headed off to South America with his wife, daughters, mother-in-law, and mother-in-law’s friend in tow. There was no solemn, reasoned speech to explain why the U.S. was going to war.



.





When Bush was president angry Obama in 2007: Americans ‘Have a Right to Know’ When We Debate and Engage in Major Foreign Policy Actions


SENATOR OBAMA: "But the fact of the matter is that when we don’t talk to the American people, we’re debating the most important foreign policy issues that we face, and the American people have a right to know. It is not just Washington insiders that — are part of the debate that has to take place with respect to how we’re going to shift our foreign policy. This is a seminal question.

Rep. Allen West ~ A Real Leader





At the 2nd annual 9/12 Project picnic with Allen West in Lake Worth FL, Congressman Allen West stated that while he is humbled by the support he has received from people across the country who believe he is a viable Senatorial and/or Presidential candidate, but nonetheless, he is staying put in the U.S. House of Representatives.

West then went off to call out Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) by way of a pretty good impersonation- regarding the video in which Reid says that the Tea Party would not survive.

Marco Rubio: “I Will No Longer Support Short-Term Budget Plans...We Can No Longer Afford To Nickel and Dime Our Way Out of Dangerous Debt"




Marco Rubio: “I Will No Longer Support Short-Term Budget Plans...We Can No Longer Afford To Nickel and Dime Our Way Out of Dangerous Debt"

The Daily Caller


Only a few months into his first Senate term, Florida Republican Marco Rubio took a stand against his party’s leadership with a promise to vote against any short-term proposal to fund the government, and said members of Congress should feel “ashamed” if they fail to reach a deal on long-term spending cuts.

“I will no longer support short-term budget plans. While attempts at new spending reductions are commendable, we simply can no longer afford to nickel-and-dime our way out of the dangerous debt America has amassed,” Rubio wrote in an op-ed published on the conservative blog RedState.com Monday.


“With Congress set to begin another week-long recess next week, every senator and representative should feel ashamed if they have to go home again, look their constituents in the eye, and explain why nothing is being done about our debt crisis.”


Congress has not passed a federal budget since 2009, instead choosing to fund the government through a string of short term continuing resolutions (CRs).


Republicans, who took control of the House in January, have demanded that each new CR contain spending reductions. Earlier this month, Democrats and Republicans agreed to a two-week extension with about $4 billion in cuts and House Republicans last week introduced a measure to fund the government another three weeks with $6 billion in spending reductions.


Rubio let loose on the whole process, calling it “short-sighted and dangerous.”


“Running our government on the fumes of borrowed spending is unacceptable, short-sighted and dangerous,” Rubio wrote. “I commend the efforts of House and Senate Republican leaders to deal with this, but I did not come to the U.S. Senate to be part of some absurd political theater


Rubio joins a short list of Tea Party senators, including Rand Paul of Kentucky, Jim DeMint of South Carolina and Mike Lee of Utah, who already have expressed their discontent with the stopgap budgets. He said he would “no longer” back short-term budget bills, adding that Congress cannot “nickel-and-dime our way” out of the debt crisis.

Resistance on the Senate side is being matched by conservative ire in the House, where spending bills originate.

Fox News has learned that Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, chairman of the influential Republican Study Committee, will oppose the short-term bill, scheduled to hit the floor Tuesday or Wednesday. The study committee represents the bloc of the most conservative voices in the House — Jordan’s stance could open the door for others to follow suit in voting against the bill.

In a Tweet last week, freshman Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., already announced: “I will NOT be voting for another short term CR. There is a confrontation coming on this budget and the sooner we get to it the better.”

West added:


Rep. Allen West of Florida said it isn’t playing well back home and that constituents “are tired of half-measures.”

Speaker Boehner calls out Obama: ‘Talk is cheap, actions speak louder than words’ ~ Thank You John Boehner!!!




Boehner calls out Obama: ‘Talk is cheap, actions speak louder than words’


The Daily Caller


With the new appointment of banker Bill Daley as President Barack Obama’s chief of staff, some have wondered if the White House is attempting to change the perception it is an anti-business administration.

But on Monday night’s “The Kudlow Report” on CNBC, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner said it was going to take more than just that appointment to convince him the Obama administration has changed its attitude toward the business community.

“I’ve talked to the president a lot over the last couple of months and talked to Mr. Daley a number of times,” Boehner said. “Talk is cheap, actions speak louder than words. I haven’t seen any new actions, yet.”


Boehner even offered some suggestions.


“Send the free-trade agreements to Congress for our consideration,” Boehner said. “Let’s put a real moratorium on new regulations coming out of his administration, which he’s also called for.”

Another pro-business gesture, Boehner said, could come through tax reform, which Obama has hinted at over the past few months. Host Larry Kudlow asked if new Republican House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan was up to the task.


“If we want to make America more competitive we’ve got to reform our corporate tax code,” Boehner said. “It’s in the way of job creation in America. Dave Camp is a great chairman. We came to Congress together 21 years ago. He is working on that reform. There’s a number of hearings that are already set up. The administration appears to have some interest in wanting to pursue this and I’m optimistic.”


That tax reform could come this year, Boehner added.


Wild Thing's comment........

If only we could send obama off to prison for being a traitor and then get a conservative as president. All these things the conservatives want to do would be so huge to get America back and business doing good again.

GOP Senators Introduce National 'Right-to-Work' Bill to Restrict Unions





GOP Senators Introduce National 'Right-to-Work' Bill to Restrict Unions

FOX News

A group of conservative U.S. senators has introduced a bill to restrict unions from forcing workers to join and pay dues as a condition of employment.

The move on Capitol Hill comes as several states consider what’s known as “right-to-work” legislation — proposals that have met stiff resistance. Indiana Republicans recently shelved their right-to-work bill after it sparked protests at the capital and after Democrats fled the state to block it, mimicking the tactic used by Wisconsin lawmakers holding up Gov. Scott Walker’s anti-union proposal.

But GOP senators in Washington said national legislation is needed to stop the “strong-arm political tactics” they claim labor bosses are using to compel new employees into joining their ranks. They introduced the National Right to Work Act Tuesday.


“No American should be forced to join a union and pay dues to get a job in this country,” Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., said in a statement. “Many Americans are already struggling just to put food on the table, and they shouldn’t have to fear losing their jobs or face discrimination if they don’t want to join a union. Forced-unionism shields unions from member accountability and has a detrimental effect on the economy.”


Opponents of right-to-work legislation say the proposals would lower pay and hurt workers.

The American Federation of Government Employees, which represents federal workers, said in a statement Wednesday it would oppose the bill “in solidarity” with other unions, while noting it would not affect federal employees.

For years, the country has been split about 50-50 between states that allow employees to decide whether to join a union and states that allow unions to require membership. Most southern and central Midwestern states are right-to-work states, while the West Coast, New England and the northern Midwest comprise what critics call “forced-unionism” states.

Currently 22 states have right-to-work laws, according to the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation. Research by the National Conference of State Legislatures shows that several states in New England and in the northern Midwest are now considering right-to-work proposals.

Right-to-work advocates say states with those laws on the books are more conducive to economic growth.

DeMint was joined by seven other co-sponsors, including Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Orrin Hatch, R-Utah; Mike Lee, R-Utah; Rand Paul, R-Ky.; James Risch, R-Idaho; Pat Toomey, R-Pa.; and David Vitter, R-La.


In February ( last month) Mitch Daniels: Indiana Republicans Should Drop the Right to Work Bill

Gov. Mitch Daniels signaled this afternoon that Republicans should to drop the right-to-work bill that has brought the Indiana House to a standstill for two days and imperiled other measures.


Daniels told reporters this afternoon that he expects House Democrats will return to work if the bill dies. The Democrat minority has right to express its views, he added.

Good for othe GOP Senators for introducing this bill.

Bye Bye Gov. Mitch RINO Daniels for your wanting a truce with the Demcorats in your State on so many things. Glad he is NOT a Senator. Thank God for Gov.s like Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Senate Passes Unioin Bill ~ Democrats MIA





The Wisconsin Senate passed their union tonight 18-1.


The Senate democrats were still hiding in Illinois when the bill was passed.


The outraged leftists are pounding on the chamber door – they’re honking their horns outside the capitol building.

AP

Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate voted Wednesday night to strip nearly all collective bargaining rights from public workers after discovering a way to bypass the chamber’s missing Democrats.

All 14 Senate Democrats fled to Illinois nearly three weeks ago, preventing the chamber from having enough members present to consider Gov. Scott Walker’s so-called “budget repair bill” – a proposal introduced to plug a $137 million budget shortfall.

The Senate requires a quorum to take up any measures that spend money. But Republicans on Wednesday split from the legislation the proposal to curtail union rights, which spends no money, and a special conference committee of state lawmakers approved the bill a short time later.


Governor Scott Walker praised Republicans

Walker said: “In order to move the state forward, I applaud the Legislature’s action today to stand up to the status quo and take a step in the right direction to balance the budget and reform government.”


“The Senate Democrats have had three weeks to debate this bill and were offered repeated opportunities to come home, which they refused. In order to move the state forward, I applaud the Legislature’s action today to stand up to the status quo and take a step in the right direction to balance the budget and reform government. The action today will help ensure Wisconsin has a business climate that allows the private sector to create 250,000 new jobs.”

Here is a video of the guy hollering it’s a violation of the meetings law.An d also the voting for the bill.

Wild Thing's comment........

They needed a quorum of 20 to pass financial bills so they stripped all financial/budgetary portions.

Sen. Dale Schultz (R-Richland Center) casting the no vote.

Gov Walker and the Senate GOP bent over backwards to get the rats to return. They were obviously not planning to return any time soon so the GOP said..."TIMES UP" and made the necessary changes to move ahead without needing the rats to be present.

Democrats have nothing to complain about but they will of course and they will lie as they always do. They had their chance to be present and accounted for which they preferred to run off to Illinois.

Americans will save this country yet! To hell with the commie ‘RATS. We love our country and will not let them destroy it!

Very Impressive Michele Bachmann on Meet the Press





GOP Congresswoman Michele Bachmann appearing of Meet the Press with David Gregory.


Meet The Press: David Gregory Irked by Michelle Bachmann Emphasis on Secret $105 Billion ObamaCare Funding


Newsbusters

Bachmann said she is “hopeful” that an agreement can be reached with Democrats to avert a shutdown of the Government. But Bachmann said revelations of funding to implement ObamaCare slipped into the ObamaCare Bill make it difficult to take the Obama Administration seriously. Gregory told Bachmann he wanted to stick to a narrow discussion of budget issues. But Bachmann would not stop talking about the $105 Billion already appropriated in the ObamaCare Bill. She said the money “has to be given back before we can start any other discussions.”

Bachmann said she would NOT support raising the debt ceiling, saying that would only give Congress a license to spend more money.

Bachmann said Obama’s handling of the Libyan Crisis has been “lacking.”

She said she has made no decision about a 2012 run for President. Bachmann stood by her remarks saying Obama actions are that of a “gangster government.”


REP. MICHELE BACHMANN: ...There was a Congressional Research Service report that just was issued in February, and we discovered that secretly, unbeknownst to members of Congress, over $105 billion was hidden in the Obamacare legislation to fund the implementation of Obamacare. This is something that wasn't known. This money was broken up, hidden in various parts of the bills. And we have worked very hard to discover $61 billion in cuts that we could put forward, get to the president. So, in effect, David, we've taken one step forward and two steps back because we've found now that $105 billion had already been implemented.


MR. GREGORY: All right. But that--but, Congresswoman, you heard the president this week offer...

Notice how often during the interview that Ms Bachmann keeps returning to the topic of the $105 billion of ObamaCare funding during the interview which is countered in each instance by David Gregory desperately trying to change the subject.


MR. GREGORY: We are back, joined now by the head of the tea party caucus in the House of Representatives, Republican Congresswoman from Minnesota Michele Bachmann. Welcome to MEET THE PRESS.

REP. MICHELE BACHMANN (R-MN): Thank you, David.

MR. GREGORY: Nice to have you. You heard the chief of staff, Bill Daley, say that he's optimistic that it's possible to avert a government shutdown. Are you as optimistic as he is?

REP. BACHMANN: Well, I'm hopeful. I don't think anyone wants to see the government shut down, but it is shocking the revelations of all the money that's been spent. There was a Congressional Research Service report that just was issued in February, and we discovered that secretly, unbeknownst to members of Congress, over $105 billion was hidden in the Obamacare legislation to fund the implementation of Obamacare. This is something that wasn't known. This money was broken up, hidden in various parts of the bills. And we have worked very hard to discover $61 billion in cuts that we could put forward, get to the president. So, in effect, David, we've taken one step forward and two steps back because we've found now that $105 billion had already been implemented.


MR. GREGORY: All right. But that--but, Congresswoman, you heard the president this week offer...

REP. BACHMANN: Or appropriated.

MR. GREGORY: ...an accommodation to the states to opt out of the individual mandate, where necessary, to tailor it toward their own states.

REP. BACHMANN: Well, David...

MR. GREGORY: Why isn't that the sort of--the give that Republicans wanted?

REP. BACHMANN: David, that's not a give at all. In effect, all that is, is a pretext for implementing a single-payer plan. If you--if you recall, the president's entire statement, he said the states can opt out as long as they stay within the, the requirements of all of Obamacare unless they want to go with a single payer--again, from the very beginning it has been said that Obamacare is a crime against democracy. It has been a deception from the beginning. Remember, the president told us it was a mandate, not a tax. Now in the federal court he's arguing it's a tax, not a Band-Aid.

MR. GREGORY: Will you--I want to stick with the...

REP. BACHMANN: We were also told that our premiums would go down $2,500 and instead, they're spiking up by 20 and 40 percent.

MR. GREGORY: Let me get in here, Congresswoman.

REP. BACHMANN: This has been a fraud.

MR. GREGORY: Let me get in here. I want to stick with the, the narrow budget questions. Are you willing to vote to shut down the government over some of these add-ons to these spending bills, to defund funding for the healthcare legislation, for Planned Parenthood, for the EPA?

REP. BACHMANN: I think this deception that the president and Pelosi and Reid put forward with, with appropriating over $105 billion needs to be given back to the people. There was no debate. There was no discussion. $105 billion is a lot of money. You can't just slip that into a bill and not tell members of the House and not tell members of the Senate, and then when they go to vote for the bill, did it just slip Harry Reid's mind to not tell the senators that this was in the bill?

MR. GREGORY: Congresswoman, my question is a very, is a very direct one: Will you vote to shut down the government over those riders?

REP. BACHMANN: I think that President Obama needs to give back that $105 billion that they already appropriated. They have tied the hands of Congress for the next eight years, David. They already appropriated this money. Members of Congress didn't even know this money was in the bill because we couldn't read the bill before it was passed because it wasn't given to us but hours before we had to vote for it. That's why Speaker Pelosi famously said we have to pass the bill to know what's in it. Members of Congress weren't even given the courtesy of time to read the bill. This $105 billion has to be given back before we can start any other discussions.

MR. GREGORY: Let me ask, let me ask you about some tea party criticism of Speaker Boehner over how far the cuts have gone. The USA Today reported on this on Friday, I'll put it up. "Tea Party leader blasts Boehner over cuts. The founder of one of the largest Tea Party groups said House Speaker Boehner looks like a `fool' ... because he has not cut enough from the budget.

"Judson Phillips ... [the] founder of the Tea Party Nation, Boehner's inability to negotiate," he said, "larger cuts should prompt the Tea Party movement to run a candidate against [him] in 2012 in a GOP primary.

"`The Tea Party movement sprang up in '09 as a reaction to insane government spending,' Phillips wrote on his blog on Wednesday. `In 2010, the American people spoke, demanding change. Everyone realizes that the level of spending cannot be sustained. John Boehner did not get that message.'" Has Boehner failed the tea party?

REP. BACHMANN: The main message that's going across the Internet today among members of the tea party, they are outraged about this $105 billion that was deceptively put in the Obamacare bill.

MR. GREGORY: Congresswoman, you've made, you've made your point.

REP. BACHMANN: That's what they're focused on.

MR. GREGORY: I'm asking you a direct question here about whether you think, as head of the tea party caucus, whether Boehner has failed to live up to the tea party's expectations.

REP. BACHMANN: I think what we're--we--what we're trying to do as Republicans in the House is look for every place we possibly can to cut spending. We've identified $100 billion in cuts off of the president's proposed budget, $60 billion if you compare it to the 2010 budget. So we have done our part to look for cuts. But we can't be--we can't end there. We have to also demand that we claw back the $105 billion that was deceptively already appropriated by President Obama.

MR. GREGORY: The, the speaker has said that it would be irresponsible not to raise the debt limit, as will be called for soon. Will you agree with him on that and do that?

REP. BACHMANN: I am not in favor of raising the debt ceiling. In the last 10 years we have raised the debt ceiling 10 times. We are just giving the Congress a license to keep on spending. And one thing the American people are demanding because they want to see jobs created, they want to see the economy get on a back--good footing. In order to do that, government has to take less so that the American people can keep more.

MR. GREGORY: The issue of the tea party and backlash among voters against the tea party is an interesting area because conservatives and certainly leaders and tea party folks have said, "Look, there was a mandate from the 2010 election, and that was to cut spending." And yet, you have this from--analysis from our Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, written by the Wall Street Journal on Thursday: "Among those most fearing spending cuts," they reported, "were younger voters, independents, seniors, and suburban women--groups that include many swing voters in national elections, who potentially could turn against the GOP.

"`It may be hard to understand why someone would try to jump off a cliff' to solve the debt crisis, [pollster] Mr. [Bill] McInturff said of his fellow Republicans, `unless you understand that they are being chased by a tiger, and that tiger is the tea party.'" Is the tea party chasing the broader GOP off the cliff?

REP. BACHMANN: You know, I think that the political left has been very afraid of the tea party movement because it is not necessarily political. It's not Democrats or Republicans. It's made up of a very broad-based coalition. It's made up of people who want the country to work again. They believe that we're taxed enough already, the government shouldn't spend more money than what its taking in, and that each of the three branches of government should act within the jurisdictional limitations of the Constitution. That's a broad-based group of people. They just want our country to work again. And I think that that coalition is hanging together more strongly now than ever.

So now that Congress is searching for ways to cut the budget, a very good place to start would be with the 105 BILLION dollars in secret ObamaCare funding, However, David Gregory would rather stubbornly stick to his script about supposed dissension between Tea Party members and the GOP as well other relatively trivial matters.

Perhaps someday David Gregory can bring himself to actually say the words: $105 BILLION.

Sen. Mitch McConnell Followed John Kerry On CBS' Bob Schieffer Show and Gave a Great Response





Sen. Mitch McConnell tells CBS’ Bob Schieffer he does not believe Obama is serious about addressing the budget. McConnell said he has had a number of private conversations with the President and Vice President and saw no willingness from them to do anything difficult.


"Where's the president? Where's the leadership," the Republican Senator from Kentucky asks, along with another question for John Kerry: "What planet is he living on?"



Wild Thing's comment........


The longer version of the interview Schieffer tried to get McConnell to agree with Kerry or at least to show weakness, but he didn't. This is something I got so sick of the last several years how when Republicans have a chance to speak up they wimp out. I wanted to share this clip with you where McConnell actually did stay strong and he told the truth too. Obama is horrible as a president and for many more reasons that were even stated in this interview, but at least it is a start when we hear those elected on our side speak up.

Speaker Boehner Shoots Down Dem Plan To Cut $6.5B and Boehner Also Promises Obama GOP Cover On Entitlement Reform ~ Good One!!!



Boehner shoots down Dem plan to cut $6.5B as 'indefensible'


The Hill

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Friday called the Democratic plan to trim $6.5 billion from last year's spending "indefensible and unacceptable."


"Yesterday, the White House and congressional Democrats finally announced their position. Unfortunately, it is little more than the status quo, and the status quo is indefensible and unacceptable,” Boehner said in a statement Friday morning.


“The American people spoke loudly and clearly last November. They want to cut spending to help create a better environment for job creation. Americans have a right to know: When will Democrats get serious about cutting spending?"

House Majority Leader Cantor (R-Va.) also said the Democratic plan "falls short" and is "not a serious attempt to get our fiscal house in order.

Less government spending equals more private sector jobs, and House Republicans applied that principle to our long-term funding measure, H.R. 1," he said in a statement.

The cuts in the Democratic plan come from a wide variety of programs including disaster preparedness, nonproliferation, job training, transportation and wildfire prevention.

They are culled from areas cut in the House seven-month CR that have been identified by the White House as acceptable.



Boehner promises Obama GOP cover if he takes first step on entitlement reform

The Hill

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has privately assured President Obama that House Republicans will not attack him if he makes a proposal to reform entitlement spending, according to sources familiar with the offer.


Moreover, Boehner has personally promised Obama that he will stand side by side with him to weather the strong political backlash expected from any proposal to cut entitlement costs.

So far, Obama has not taken Boehner up on the deal, as Democratic strategists have warned the White House not to cut payments from the Social Security trust fund or to reopen the acrimonious debate over healthcare.


Social Security reform has been prominent in behind-the-scenes talks about entitlement spending because it is relatively easy to reduce its cost projections — at least, compared to the complex morass of healthcare policy reform.

Social Security has been known traditionally as the “third rail” of politics, because grappling with the issue is considered as deadly as touching an electrified subway rail.

President George W. Bush saw his post-election political capital plummet in 2005 after Democrats led by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) excoriated his administration’s proposal to divert a portion of Social Security revenues into private retirement accounts.

Boehner has promised that Republicans will not exploit entitlement reform for political gain if Obama shows leadership on curbing the cost of Social Security and other mandatory spending programs, according to sources familiar with the offer.
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), who is in the midst of negotiating a deficit-reduction package with a bipartisan group of senators, said Republicans would not bite Obama for endorsing entitlement reforms.


“He’s been told by the Speaker that if he stands up to do that, the Speaker will stand up with him,” Coburn said. “The Speaker will go out there with him and say we’ve got to do these things.”


Coburn is in talks with five other senators — two Republicans and three Democrats — to craft a deficit-reduction plan that might include reforms to Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) said entitlement reform won’t happen this year unless Obama takes a leading role on the issue.
“With regard to our long-term unfunded liabilities — the entitlements — we are waiting for presidential leadership,” McConnell said. “We know, and we’ll say again, that entitlement reform will not be done except on a bipartisan basis with presidential leadership.”


The president might be concerned about getting vilified by his own party and its allies.

Labor unions and liberal advocacy groups have waged a blistering lobbying campaign directed at the White House to steer the president away from reform proposals that would cut benefits.

Boehner has now established that he invited the President's leadership on the matter and offered his full support. Boehner’s just boxed Obama up again.


.


Wild Thing's comment........

Good for Boehner, he didn't fall for the cheap parlor tricks. It really is ridiculous that in this time that instead of offering meaningful spending cuts democrats choose to be deceptive and deceitful.


And regarding Boehner promises Obama GOP cover if he takes first step on entitlement reform. Obama will NEVER reform entitlement spending.... it’s literally the bread and butter of his constituency. Boehner did the smart thing, here: now he can go out and say that even though he promised Obama that the GOP would assist in entitlement reform, Obama didn’t have the guts to tackle a big issue like that. Good move on Boehner's part.


Boehner's offer is an invitation for Obama to commit political suicide.

Brilliant move.

Senate GOP in Wisconsin Orders Police to Take AWOL Dems Into Custody



State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald


Senate GOP in Wisconsin Orders Police to Take AWOL Dems Into Custody

FOX News


Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate passed a resolution Thursday calling for police to take 14 Democrats into custody for contempt after they fled to Illinois to avoid voting on a bill that would strip public-sector unions of nearly all their collective bargaining rights.

On the same day, Republicans in the Indiana House agreed to impose fines of $250 per day on Democrats who are also in Illinois, boycotting the legislature over labor and education bills they oppose.

In Wisconsin, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald signed the orders after Republicans voted 19-0 calling for the action unless Democrats returned to the chamber by 4 p.m. Thursday.

None of the Democrats did, prompting Fitzgerald to sign 14 orders of detainment in dramatic fashion in the center of the Senate chamber. State patrol officers watched silently from the gallery.

"We had not exhausted everything available to us to compel the senators back to the body," Fitzgerald said in an interview with Greta Van Susteren during On The Record. "If one of these senators is identified or about to come into Wisconsin they could be picked up by law enforcement and brought back to the senate chamber."


Fitzgerald added that he heard a media report that one of the missing Democratic senators didn't think he was serious.

"Bring it on, lets try it," he said. "If that senator wants to step foot in Wisconsin, he’ll see."


The move comes two weeks after the Democrats left, effectively delaying the vote on Gov. Scott Walker's proposal that he says will help him address a $3.6 billion budget shortfall. Walker said Thursday that he will start issuing layoff notices to state workers on Friday if his bill isn't passed by then.

Fitzgerald said the resolution is legally different from an arrest, but "definitely a shift from asking them politely."

The resolution gives the sergeant at arms the authority to take any and all steps, with or without force and assistance from police, to bring the senators back.

The state Constitution prohibits the arrest of lawmakers while in session unless they're accused of committing felonies, treason or breach of peace.

But James Troupis, a private attorney hired by Fitzgerald, argued Thursday that the move is legal, because the state Constitution allows each house to "compel the attendance of absent members," the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

In Indiana, most House Democrats skipped Thursday's floor sessions, extending their stay at an Urbana, Ill., hotel to a 10th day and preventing action on the bills because too few members are present.

The fines would start being assessed on Monday and be deducted from the salaries or expense allowances of the absent members.

Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma said he decided to seek the fines because the Democratic boycott had reached "the point of absurdity."

"We've tried every other means other than conceding to a list of demands and this is one of the few items that we have as options," Bosma said.


Republicans calculate that the absence of the Democrats has cost more than $250,000 in taxpayer money for the salaries and expenses of running the House during the walkout, which Bosma called "a very expensive temper tantrum."



Wild Thing's comment........


Kudos to Fitzgerald, good for him and the rest of the Republicans that followed through and voted to do something about this.

What a mess this is and it isn’t going to be resolved soon. I can imagine the games which will be played once they do return...you can expect they’ll have something up their sleves .

Obama warns public workers are being 'vilified'


The Hill


Obama warned Monday against vilifying public workers, making his first allusion to the labor dispute in Wisconsin in a week and a half.

The president, speaking Monday to a group of governors at the White House, warned against using public servants as scapegoats, a not-so-subtle reference to Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) pursuit of legislation that would eliminate collective bargaining rights for public workers.

“I don’t think it does anybody any good when public servants are denigrated, or vilified, or have their rights infringed upon,” Obama said.

Gov. Scott Walker on Monday afternoon responded to comments Barack Obama made earlier in the day about the protests in Madison:

Reuters

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday warned the 14 Democrat State Senators who have fled to Illinois that they must return and vote on the Governor’s “Budget Repair Bill” or there will be “dire consequences.”

Those consequences are layoffs of state workers, which Walker said would be necessary if they are unable to move forward with the budget bill. Walker said layoffs are the last thing he wants to do. But it will be unavoidable if the Democrats refuse to allow the budget process to move forward in order to deal with the state’s $3.6 Billion deficit.

Friday morning after the Assembly vote to approve Governor Scott Walker’s budget repair bill Democrat State Rep. Gordon Hintz turned to Republican Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: “You are F***king dead!”

620 WTMJ

State Rep. Gordon Hintz was issued a municipal citation in Appleton earlier this month for violating a city sexual misconduct ordinance.

Appleton police said the citation was issued Feb. 10 in conjunction with an ongoing investigation of Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor, 342 W. Wisconsin Ave., in Appleton. Police searched the business and a nearby residence in the 1300 block of North Division Street Jan. 28, after investigators had staked out the properties for several days after receiving a tip.

Last Friday…. after the Assembly voted to engross the Budget Repair Bill, Hintz turned to a female colleague, Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: “You are F***king dead!”

Hintz was arrested for sexual misconduct earlier in the week – in a prostitution sting.

If the legislatures don’t want to work, then fire them and get some who do.

God Bless Gov. Walker for calling this union-puppet clown out. I sure hope he continues to be strong about this.


“I’m sure that President Obama simply misunderstands the issues in Wisconsin, and isn’t acting like the union bosses in saying one thing and doing another.”

SSSSSSSMACK!!!!.........Great one! Walker damns obama with faint praise. Better put some ice on that, 0bama!
In boxing this would be a knock down for a 10 count.

I'm sure Obama knows...

I can hear the sarcasm in the statements loud and clear.


Walker is standing up and telling people the truth, even if it is not a pleasant truth. Then he offers SOLUTIONS, while Obama leaves it to others to find the solutions. Walker’s budget plan?... Tough choices, realistic assumptions. Obama’s budget plan?.....Even the Democrats said Obama’s budget is a bad joke, phony ‘savings’ and unrealistic projections.

Cornstalked: As the 14 Wisconsin Democrats run, meet the numerous Illinois Tea Party activists giving chase




Free market capitalism at its finist. Go Rockford! LOL ~ Wild Thing

"In the video you never find anyone who's a senator but you do find people getting away from the work place world" says John Groh, President of the Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.

It's meant to highlight "getaway spots" and deals at restaurants, sporting events.
And of course, the clock tower where the senators first arrived.

"It’s very very cute, a way of turning lemons into lemonade." says Dwight Hophauf, GM of Clock Tower Resort.

Even Rockford’s own “Cheap Trick" guitarist Rick Nielsen showed off a hiding spot.

"I’ve been hiding out here 40 or 50; I don't even remember how many years.” says Nielsen.

And while one state continues to search for them, another nearby city is just glad they stopped by.

Cornstalked: As the 14 Wisconsin Democrats run, meet the numerous Illinois Tea Party activists giving chase

The Daily Caller

To say that 14 Wisconsin Democrats are “on the lam” in Illinois is an understatement. Relentlessly hounded by Illinois Tea Party members, they are truly, on the run.


No matter which podunk border town the senators try to hide in, they are running all the time thanks to highly effective efforts of conservative activists who have streamlined their “search party” by utilizing Facebook, email blasts and quick video posts. Who knew the Tea Party would be so good at bounty hunting 2.0?

On Thursday, The Missing 14 unsubtly crashing the Clock Tower Resort’s Choloholic Frolic in Rockford, Ill. David Hale, the Rockford Tea Party, and his camera began stalking the resort pestering the senators. By Saturday, some of the Missing 14 had skipped over to the city’s Holiday Inn — and were reportedly seen at Hooters having a last supper of sorts — when Hale waltzed into the hotel’s lobby and confronted them with his camera and questions like, “Senators! Why won’t go home and do your job.”

Probably aware that a posse of 14 pasty bureaucrats will stick out in a crowd, the senators did what any fugitive chain gang would do: They cut the links and went in separate directions. One did the smart thing and disappeared into the polished back alleys of the Windy City, where only the New York Times could find him.

By the following Monday, eight of the 14 had gone 30 miles northeast to the two-hotel town of Harvard (Pop. 9,000ish) thinking it might be a good place to “hide.” It took just one tip from a “concerned citizen,” however, before a few amateurs Illinois activist descended upon the hotel, causing enough trouble commotion for the senators to quickly pack it up.

Mary Alger, the coordinator of the McHenry County Tea Party was was grocery shopping when she got the tip. Dropping off the produce, making a quick sign and skirting 15mins Northwest to Harvard, she met up with “Doc,” a member of the Northern Illinois Tea Party who holds down a full-time job when he’s not hunting Democrats. Lori White, a Spring Grove resident, showed up after responding to a Facebook post on the Rockford Tea Party site asking if anyone near Harvard was willing to drop by the hotel, preferably with a video camera.

The hotel called the cops on “Doc” and Mary because they were trespassing, so Doc skedaddled and at a nearby McDonald’s Mary waited for White to arrive into town. Unfortunately, White got there just in time to see four senators piled into a tiny Mazda behind her — the make, model and license plate she’d gotten after responding to the Facebook post. As she fumbled for her video camera, the senators sped off, up Highway 23. Though she tried to follow, White eventually lost them. Not that she’ll stop helping out in the other bounty hunters.

Meanwhile, a local paper published a picture of one of them Democrats. Northern Ill Tea Party board member Joe Terrell had not only set up a “Flee Party Tracker” Facebook page but was able to do some magic thanks to information sharing and basic internet research.

“Based on that picture, a list of Democratic donors and Google Earth we were able to identify where it was taken,” said Terrell. And with that, he posted the citizens equivalent to what the police like to refer to as an APB — an All Points Bulletin.

For the past week and a half, this has been the regular rhyme and flow of both the Wisconsin state senators and the amateur bounty hunters tracking them down. Each time the senators find a place to hide, some local resident sends a quick Facebook note or records a few minutes of footage so that tea party members around Northern Illinois can coordinate confrontations no more dangerous than a slightly pushy reporter asking, “Why are you running?”

One local Tea Party group claims to have 80-100 people attending it’s monthly meeting. Multiply that by several Northern Illinois counties as well as tea party supporters networking online and the number of vigilant citizens looking for the 14 Democrats is in the hundreds, if not thousands. Everyone already knows why The Missing 14 refuse to go home (something about unions, right?), so why exactly are they hiding? Gov. Walker hasn’t issued any warrants for their arrest and Illinois doesn’t legally recognize bounty hunters. The truth is, the Missing 14 are running from bad publicity and an army of tea party enthusiasts almost serving as citizen journalists. So who exactly are these people doing all the chasing, and how are they doing it?


~ snipet ~

Meanwhile, the Illinois Tea Party is only getting better and better at keeping the spotlight on the elusive ones. There’s still the constant phone calls and emails and Facebook posts between activists. But now, even the entire city of Rockford is drawing attention to the Wisconsin 14. The city’s promotional organization just launched a “Hideaway in Rockford” campaign. Soundbite: “Here in Rockford, ( see VIDEO ABOVE ) our doors are wide open, we want people to come here and hideaway, from whatever they’re trying to get away from.”

Unrelenting public mockery, though, that’s tough to hide from.

Good for the Tea Party for tracking them down and keeping them nervous. Fantastic!!! As Rush noted the other day, this used to be the job of news media.

Hopefully, the taxpayers aren’t paying for this ridiculous charade by the rats, their food, and hotel bills etc.

Great ad! Mocking the cowardice of Wisconsin Democrats has entered a new phase!

‘Defending Liberty’: Defiant Clarence Thomas Slams Critics for ‘Undermining’ High Court ~ Thank You Judge Thomas!





‘Defending Liberty’: Defiant Clarence Thomas Slams Critics for ‘Undermining’ High Court


Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas – his impartiality under attack from liberals because of his attendance at a meeting of conservative donors sponsored by the Koch brothers and his wife’s tea party activism – struck a defiant tone in a Saturday night speech in Charlottesville, Va., telling a friendly audience that he and his wife “believe in the same things” and “are focused on defending liberty.”

Delivering the keynote speech at an annual symposium for conservative law students, Thomas spoke in vague, but ominous, terms about the direction of the country and urged his listeners to “redouble your efforts to learn about our country so that you’re in a position to defend it.”
He also lashed out at his critics, without naming them, asserting they “seem bent on undermining” the High Court as an institution. Such criticism, Thomas warned, could erode the ability of American citizens to fend off threats to their way of life.


“You all are going to be, unfortunately, the recipients of the fallout from that – that there’s going to be a day when you need these institutions to be credible and to be fully functioning to protect your liberties,” he said, according to a partial recording of the speech provided to POLITICO by someone who was at the meeting.

“And that’s long after I’m gone, and that could be either a short or a long time, but you’re younger, and it’s still going to be a necessity to protect the liberties that you enjoy now in this country.”

Thomas spoke at the closing banquet for the symposium, which was sponsored by the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group.


It was the first time Thomas has spoken out – at least in a semi-public setting – about the mounting controversies that have swirled around him and his wife, Virginia Thomas, who goes by “Ginni” and who was in Charlottesville with her husband.

The justice’s critics have argued that his attendance at, and speech to, a private January 2008 gathering of major conservative donors sponsored by the billionaire industrialist Koch brothers in Palm Springs, Calif. and his wife’s political activism have compromised his position on the court.

God Love and Protect this stellar American.


I have immense respect for Clarence Thomas. I highly recommend his autobiography My Grandfather’s Son and am amazed and humbled by how hard he worked, both physically and academically, from a young age into manhood, unlike a large percentage of American kids today who have never experienced a hard day’s labor. God bless Justice Thomas and his family, and God help those who perpetuate evil against them.


A genuine decent, honest patriotic American - which is precisely why obama and his pals want him destroyed.

Emphasizing the importance of the Supreme Court, Thomas said “It’s not a game with me. It doesn’t deal with any ego stuff with me. This is about our country. And one of the things I want to do is I want to go to my grave knowing that I gave everything I had to trying to get it right.”

God Bless Justice Thomas.

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) Not Ruling Out VP Bid: " I'm always willing to serve my country"


West speaking last November at one of the Tea Party events.


Allen West not ruling out VP bid: 'I'm always willing to serve my country'

The Hill

Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is not closing the door to being considered for the vice presidential spot, despite only having served in Congress for less than three months.

Speculation over West was sparked Friday when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), who is considering a presidential bid, said that a number of Florida GOP politicians would do well as vice president, including West.

When asked about Gingrich's comments by WPTV-TV, West asked, "He said that?"


"I have to pray about it and I have to clear it with my wife and two daughters," he added. "I never thought that seven years ago when I retired here I'd be a United States congressman, and that I'd be standing in front of your news camera. So we don't know what the future holds, but I'm always willing to serve my country."

West, 50, is one of two black Republicans elected to Congress in the 2010 midterm elections, which saw the GOP take control of the House with the backing of Tea Party activists. Florida has never had a candidate on a national ticket, according to WPTV.




Wild Thing's comment........


Talk about heads exploding on the left if he was on a ticket for President or VP one day. America’s Armed Forces need to be led by a warrior , not by gaggles of liberal lawyers .They deserve it and I just thank God that he won his eledtion last Nov. and he is in Florida. Whatever he does I feel it will be the best for America.

Colonel West, I would vote for you in a heartbeat, but please, please stay away from RINO Gingrich.


Allen West: West is a patriot, he reveres the U.S. Constitution and he talks about it. He reveres our Republic and our democracy, and he talks about it.


Palin and West....sounds good. heh heh

Just thinking of West telling Biden.... not to blow sunshine up his butt. LOL! hahahha


Infamously, if you are a Liberal, and famously if you are a Conservative, West gave a belligerent Iraqi civilian police office the opportunity to tell him who was killing soldiers:


Lt. Col. Allen B. West was told the policeman was uncooperative, so he took a few of his men to the interrogation area to see for himself, where he found the prisoner being questioned by two female officers. They told him the man was belligerent, and wasn't giving them any information. (Surprise, surprise. The idiocy of having women question male Arab prisoners is apparent to everyone except the army commanders.) West entered the room, sat across from the man, drew his pistol, and placed it in his lap.

West told him he had come to either get information, or to kill him. The prisoner responded by smiling and saying, "I love you."


After about 20 more minutes of useless questioning, West then had his men take the prisoner outside. West grabbed the man, held him down near a box full of sand used to discharge jammed weapons, and said something like, "This is it. I'm going to count to five again, and if you don't give me what I want, I'm going to kill you." West held the man down, counted to five, and then fired his pistol into the discharging box about a foot from the Iraqi's head. He began talking. Over the next few minutes, the prisoner gave very specific information about the plot. He named the conspirators, gave times and dates of the assassination plan, and even described how attacks would be made.

After the Iraqi talked, there were no more attacks on U.S. forces. For this, Lt. Col. West was relieved of this campaign:

He was told he would go through an Article 32, which is about the same as a Grand Jury hearing. At the hearing he was asked if he would do the same thing again.


West replied "if it's about the lives of my men and their safety, I'd go through hell with a gasoline can."

Congress sent a letter to the Secretary of the Army in support of him with 95 signatories.

RNC: Stop Obama And His Union Bosses



Democrats and public employee unions continue to obstruct Republican reforms to tackle the debt at all levels of government and move the country forward. Stop Obama and his union bosses today.



Wild Thing's comment.......

Corrupt Democrats have succeeded in forcing all of us , as a Conservative American, to pay for their party. Our founding fathers would be rolling over in their graves.


Discontinuing the forced support of union employees by taxpayers would be a sound first step.

Wisconsin Assembly Passes Walker's Bill!!!!




Shouting "Shame!" on Wisconsin Assembly floor before "union-busting" budget bill vote

This is video from the gallery of the WI Assembly past 1 AM in the morning on 2/25/2011. The Democrats have just been told by the speaker pro tempore there will be no more debate before the vote, even though there were more than a dozen Democrats in the queue to speak. They shout "Shame! Shame! Shame!"

Wisconsin Assembly Charges Toward Vote on Budget Bill, Senate Remains Stuck


FOX News

Wisconsin Republicans in the state Assembly charged toward a vote on their controversial budget bill Thursday after compelling Democrats to limit debate, though the Senate remained stuck on account of 14 boycotting lawmakers.

The modest breakthrough on the Assembly side was announced at dawn following more than 42 hours of debate which began Tuesday morning. Under the plan, the Republican majority will allow another 38 amendments to be considered, for no more than 10 minutes apiece. That puts the Assembly on track for a vote perhaps as early as midday.

Though the announcement was pitched as a deal, state Democrats said Republicans were unilaterally bringing the debate to a close. One aide in Minority Leader Peter Barca's office said Republicans gave the Democrats two options: debate 38 additional amendments or end debate immediately.

Democrats, who are in the minority, don't have the votes to stop the bill once the vote occurs.

The movement on the Assembly side, though, stood in contrast to the situation in the Senate, where 14 Democratic lawmakers were still absent, blocking a vote on Gov. Scott Walker's plan to curb union benefits and collective-bargaining rights.

Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald's office confirmed to Fox News that state patrol officers had once again been dispatched to the homes of Democratic senators in the hope of persuading them to return. However, one of the 14 absent lawmakers said the caucus is still out of state and will not be swayed by police showing up at their doors. Democratic Sen. Jon Erpenbach said the senators will not be returning Thursday.

Passage of the bill in the Assembly would be a victory for Republicans and Walker, but the measure must still clear the Senate.


The battle over labor rights has been heating up across the country, as new Republican majorities tackle budget woes in several states. The GOP efforts have sparked huge protests from unions and their supporters and led Democrats in Wisconsin and Indiana to flee their states to block measures.


Walker reiterated Wednesday that public workers must make concessions to avoid thousands of government layoffs as the state grapples with a $137 million shortfall in its current budget and a projected $3.6 billion hole in the next two-year budget.

The marathon session in the Assembly was grand political theater, with exhausted lawmakers limping around the chamber, rubbing their eyes and yawning as Wednesday night dragged on.


Around midnight, Rep. Dean Kaufert, R-Neenah, accused Democrats of putting on a show for the protesters. Democrats leapt up and started shouting.

"I'm sorry if democracy is a little inconvenient and you had to stay up two nights in a row," Pocan said. "Is this inconvenient? Hell, yeah! It's inconvenient. But we're going to be heard!"

It passed It Passed!

Just saw the 2:30 am ET breaking news update on Fox News... the Wisconsin Assembly did indeed pass Gov. Walker's bill! WOO HOO!!!

The Dems would have walked out but GOP Stopped Debate and took the vote, Quick and sweet! Dems yelling shame, shame, shame, over and over, while Elvis(GOP) left the building!


This was the first huddle! Now the Senate still must pass the bill. This was just the Assembly. It has to go to the
Senate and then on to the Gov. But the way it passed was awesome! They may be voting on the bill later today.


This is a great move forward for freedom and liberty. Congratulations Wisconsin, and may the rest of the states emulate you!

West not only is a military commander who has a proved record of not bowing down to anyone when it comes to what is right - but he knows Islam backwards and forwards, up and down.

CAIR Confronts Congressman Lt Col Allen West At Townhall Meeting Hosted By West






At a townhall meeting hosted by Congressman Allen West on Monday evening in Pompano Beach, the Q&A segment of the meeting featured a Koran wielding Nezar Hamze, Executive Director of the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Hamze confronted Congressman West and asked him to point out where in the Koran does it give marching orders to Muslims “to carry out attacks against Americans and innocent people”. West quickly pointed out that the Koran was written long before America even existed and that it does indeed tell believers to kill infidels, and then proceeded to chronicle a lengthy list of historical Muslim acts of aggression. Congressman West closed his retort by referencing the Fort Hood shootings and 9-11 attacks, saying that his first hand experiences on the battlefield has given him insight into the tactics that Islamists use.

The diolague continues and an exasperated West finally retorts,
