The goal is to replace Obama next November and at this point there is not one GOP candidate who can do nearly as bad or worse than Obama has done for this nation.
There is no perfect candidate for any one of us. For me, Paul fails hugely on foreign policy; Perry’s immigration policy is hardly what I would agree with; Romney has that suitcase on his back called RomneyCare; Bachmann is just a little too strident. But I’ll take any one of them over Obama, any day. And I’m betting that most Conservatives agree with me – no matter what differences we might have with these candidates, they are head and shoulders better than the man in the Oval right now.
Right now, the democrats (now known as Marxists) are targeting the Tea party and from polling results, it appears it’s working for them. Fewer people are viewing the Tea party in favorable terms. Fewer people agree with the Tea party message. This is old news to most of you. But the fact is that the message is being stolen and perverted by the Marxists (once known as democrats) and we need to get that back. The Tea party are the freedom fighters for all and we have to make that message known. Concentrating on the differences between candidates and not on the president and his Marxist party is to our peril.
I want to see the GOP candidates stop beating each other up and start showing us what they will do differently than Obama. They need to stop sniping at each other and focus on Obama’s failed administration. We’ve got to be unified against the creeping socialism that is overtaking us or we will be doomed after November ’12.
As Levin said today on his radio show, the Obama Regime is suing Arizona for asking proof of citizenship when arresting individuals, but they are trying to stop Texas from killing a monster because they never asked for proof.
So, I ask these communists, which is it? How do you want it, because you can’t have it both ways.
And who speaks for this little girl who he raped and killed? We have female – FEMALE – Supreme Court justices who would be screaming for abortion rights but will not speak for this little girl?
Where is the so-called compassion from the left now? They aren’t speaking for the rights of this girl or her family. They are, as they always do, speaking for killers and monsters: like cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who I’ve written about before.
It would be nice to see the outrage that has been all over the news over the verdict in the Casey Anthony case, instead all over the news over this. How dare any nation or organization interfere with a sovereign state, within this country? The United Nations are the first to be trashing America for imposing ourselves on other nations but they are not only investigating Arizona for human rights violations (can you believe that?), now trying to tell the state of Texas how to adjudicate and carry out their laws!
We need a president Perry or someone like him who will tell the UN to go to hell and go to hell in a BIG way!
There are 2 little girls who are dead. One who no one will ever be held to account for but another who’s killer has been convicted and sentenced. His sentence was carried out today.
At this man, and anyone who supports him, is where our rage should really be directed.
It’s true that the November elections brought prominent winners in both parties, but the contrast between Democratic and Republican victors is highly revealing.
The biggest Democratic success stories involved re-elected Sens. Barbara Boxer and Harry Reid, and new California governor Jerry Brown – all age 70 or above! The GOP, meanwhile, hailed breakthrough victories for 39-year-old Sen. Marco Rubio in Florida, 43-year old Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin, 38-year old Governor Nikki Haley in South Carolina, 42-year- old Sen. Kelly Ayotte in New Hampshire, 47-year-old Sen. Rand Paul in Kentucky, and many other youthful candidates bringing fresh, conservative perspectives to high office. Moreover, with Hillary Clinton ruling out a future presidential race, Joe Biden reaching age 74 by 2016, and John Edwards utterly unthinkable, what younger generation Democratic star could plausibly succeed Obama?
The Democrats, in other words, have become a party of shop-worn retreads while the GOP bench is full of next-generation leaders of potential national stature, including Governors Chris Christie of New Jersey, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, Rick Perry of Texas, Mitch Daniels of Indiana, Senators John Thune of South Dakota, Scott Brown of Massachusetts, and many more.
Looking toward the future, the rising stars of the GOP not only look more vibrant and dynamic than the Pelosi/Reid Democrats, they also count as increasingly diverse.
After the recent elections, skeptics can no longer deride the GOP as an all-white party of grumpy old men. Marco Rubio, 39, became the new Senator from Florida while fellow Latino Republicans Bryan Sandoval in Nevada and Susana Martinez in New Mexico became the nation’s only two Hispanic Governors. Jaime Herrera, age 31, captured a Democratic Congressional seat in Washington State, while Raul Labrador did the same in Idaho. Two more Hispanic Republicans– Bill Flores and Quico Canseco—knocked out incumbent Democrats in Texas. In South Carolina, Indian-American Nikki Haley won for Governor while black conservative Tim Scott beat Strom Thurmond’s son (among others) for a Congressional seat. Alan West, an African-American Iraq War hero, trounced an incumbent white Florida Democrat.
In the new Republican House of Representatives, eight members of the GOP majority will proudly qualify for a potential “Republican Hispanic Caucus.” Geraldo Rivera may dismiss such victories as “window dressing,” (as he did recently on Fox News) but they have changed both image and substance of the GOP.
from the WSJ story - Huckabee and Quijas in a Mexican prison.
Mexico is torturing and falsely imprisoning our citizens and our government just doesn’t care. The consulate tells the family of these men (in the WSJ story) that they can’t and won’t do anything to help, although there are claims of torture by the authorities. This would never happen in America. Accusations of torture by prisoners in America, usually end with someone being fired, tried and thrown in jail. (If the victim is a minority, riots also ensue.) These men, in Mexican jail, must feel totally forsaken and hopeless. They can’t even get an attorney who can speak English, for cryin’ out loud!
The American government is so consumed with a law in Arizona that mirrors federal law that they ignore what’s happening to our citizens in Mexico. The bleeding heart left and its government can’t be concerned with the allegations of torture from American citizens who have been arrested and are being tried in Mexico. They are too busy screaming racism in Arizona.
I hope Americans stop going to Mexico. I have friends who go there to purchase medication or for very cheap dental work, others who go there for vacation. This is a dangerous place and our government doesn’t care what happens there. They especially don’t care what happens to our citizens if they are arrested and then tortured.
This government is giving Mexico over $1billion (which we really don’t have) to fight drug cartels. That’s in addition to the over $20billion of US money a year that legal and illegal workers send home to Mexico. They get plenty of our money. Americans should not be spending a single dime in that country.
And they seem to get plenty of respect from our politicians, too. Remember this:
A standing OVATION? I am still outraged when I see this.
Until there is a fair judicial and legal system in Mexico (hey! did you see those pigs fly by?) Americans are obligated to avoid business with Mexico. We owe it to our fellow citizens – Huckabee, Quijas and all others – to stand firm against Mexico.
