Advice to the GOP Leadership from a recovering Democrat & Twofer Tuesday: Come As You Are/It’s So Easy
I need to rant a bit. The GOP leadership needs to embrace the passion and patriotism of the American people, and absolutely must ignore the race baiting tom-toms of the lamestream media and politicians..it is the last refuge of scoundrels, throwing the race card at Americans exercising their God-given rights to assemble, freedom of speech, and especially redress of grievances to our government.
Team Obama continues to replay their primary campaign, we are in the phase where anyone objecting to the incredible overreach and intrusion into our lives is branded racist, ignorant, uneducated, lampooned, etc etc.
Sadly in 2008 millions of Democratic voters were floored at this treatment, by our own party, people who KNEW DAMNED WELL the things they were saying were slanderous lies.
Maybe it is because I have been a Democrat for 24 years that I feel absolutely no compunction about my passion for the country and the cause of rolling back the travesty these people have foisted upon us and our children. I have been dragging crates over to serve as a soapbox and stood upon them to lecture my fellow nursery school attendees upon proper treatment of fellow classmates time out of mind, maybe it’s genetic, lol.
HillBuzz spoke about this a good year ago or more, but I see a plethora of articles hitting blogs and MSM in re the ‘racism!” or ‘radical!” (POT-KETTLE!) nature of the Tea Party Patriots and now more broadly, all who dare to oppose the ‘gift’ of Obamacare.
Get your ya yas out as The Stones used to say. Flags, families, friends, passionate patriots expressing their will. The evolution of conservative and GOP patriots, to the point where they felt compelled to do what Democrats have done for generations, and step outside into the public sphere to express their will, the evolution into Tea Party Patriots, joined by Independents and Democrats like hubby and I, is precisely BECAUSE of the machinations and biases of the lamestream media.
Their refusal to report the true expression of the majority of Americans’ will with regard to deficit spending, taxation, cap and trade, and lately health care, left most Americans feeling completely cutoff from each other. We were cast out of the collective consciousness of America as reported and reflected by our media each night in evening news broadcasts.
It is not going to be possible for the Axelrasputian Brigade to push we moderate Democrats away from the tea parties. We have always loved America and never bought into the neoprog hard left anti American BS to begin with. Now that we have lived our primary ‘trial by race card fire’, we will not be deterred.
The Indies I meet at Tea Parties have zero problem expressing their wishes for the Freedoms we cherish to be upheld, and I wager the conservatives and GOP have had enough of the race card shenanigans also. We don’t care what you call us, we know who we are.
The GOP leadership needs to reflect that same thick skin if you will. If the GOP Leadership fails to embrace the righteous, yes frakkin totally righteous anger of Americans over the healthcare debacle then it will be ‘So Fxxkin’ Easy’ for the Dems to hold power (h.t Axl Rose).
Obama must’ve laughed himself through the entire Democratic primary as Hillary was forced to apologize for an everlasting chain of imagined, purported ‘slights’ and aspersions involving race. She couldn’t say ‘Good Morning’ without issuing an apology after SC. Learn from our mistakes.
These people throwing the race card know damn well it is baseless. Do not try to mollify the arsonists throwing gasoline onto the burning house. Just get in touch with the American people, we are out here standing for the Constitution, stand with us.
We are the people, party down and vote!! Primary votes now, November will be awesome… Come as you are Americans!
(and hey trollin Obots, ignore Kurt’s gun lyrics, they arent a secret code, lol. It is just a great tune we Gen X-ers like to listen to. ..)
Update: PPP: Rubio has 32 point primary lead over Crist; Our Charlie Crist numbers tomorrow will be ‘absolutely brutal’
Update: WOW! PPP wasn’t kidding, Sorry Charlie! Expect him to run as an Indy or Dem, I have long suspected he and O had a ‘gentlemans’ agreement that he not push for a revote in the Dem primaries for FL..frakkers…
…Rubio now leads Crist 60-28, including a staggering 71-17 lead with conservatives. Crist has a 49-36 advantage with party moderates, but they account for just 31% of likely primary voters compared to 65% who describe themselves as conservative….
From the PPP blog. I would add emphasis, but the whole thing could be in bold:
We are going to have absolutely brutal numbers out on Charlie Crist tomorrow.
Here’s a little preview: among Republican primary voters 19% would like to see him as Governor a year from now, 14% want him in the Senate, and 56% want him out of elected office.
If there is any path to his winning office in Florida again- and there may not be- it’s as something other than a Republican.
Marco on the health care bills in the House and Senate:
Marco Rubio at The Corner:
(…) How many bipartisan, Massachusetts-like pushbacks is it going to take for President Obama to understand the American people want to reform health care without changing and abandoning all the things that have made our system great?
How many town halls, tea parties and elections will it take for the American people to finally convey to Washington that we need to scrap this flawed proposal and process, and start anew on step-by-step reforms?
I join the American people in opposing this proposal on policy grounds as well as the procedural approach being considered to ram it through.
If President Obama and congressional Democrats go down the road of reconciliation, they will leave no doubt in the American people’s minds that Washington is broken and 2008’s promise of “Change” was little more than a campaign slogan that should not have been believed in the first place.
The health-care proposal is a deeply flawed plan that should be scrapped entirely in favor of a truly bipartisan approach that pursues step-by-step reforms….
MiM- Marco Rubio is the first conservative we have given money to as recovering Dems. Yeah he is that good, he makes me want to be fiscally responsible, ooooh! Marco-Marco-Marco- GOP needs to get that calendar together cough, cough..
For NYC and Chicago, crank it up…to eleven…..
Finally, 17 years, and a new album from GnR..
Premiering via MySpace tomorrow and appearing in certain retail outlets November 23rd..
Chinese Democracy” has aroused interest because of its notoriety; it is the first album of new Guns N’ Roses material in more than 17 years, and has taken nearly as long to finish.
The band built its reputation on its hit debut “Appetite for Destruction” and “Use Your Illusion I” and “Use Your Illusion II,” but tension among members led to all of the original members but Rose, 46, leaving…
Members of News Corp-owned MySpace will be able to play the songs on the bands’ MySpace pages, but they will not be able to download them onto their computers.
Geffen Records plans to exclusively release “Chinese Democracy” on November 23 in the United States at consumer electronics chain Best Buy Co Inc. Most of its tracks have already shown up in various forms, including pirated versions on the Internet…..
