Positive, energetic, upbeat. Focused.
Republicans are exuding smart leadership, featuring a platoon of successful governors and other leaders. Very impressive.
For example, Martinez and Haley were sharp, humorous, lovable, and aggressive, all while pulling that combination off with class. Without being stuffy!
And, they featured Scott Walker, a true champion.
In clammy, ugly contrast, the Democrats are coming off as old, tired, yammering politicians-as-usual, mouthing the same old crap, utterly unwilling even to acknowledge the hard reality of $16 trillion in debt. I’ll add, “bitchy” in the case of Wasserman-Schultz.
It is lots of fun to watch PBS’s commentators. Judy Woodruff stammers and sits back, petulant. The ever-polite Gwen Ifill I swear will go home to her husband and say, “Well, I’ll be damned! We’re Republicans!” (A quote from Governor Martinez) If Mark Shields gets any more sullen, he will implode. It’s hilarious.
Anne Romney is a star. I had no idea her grandfather was a Welsh coal miner.
The mere inclusion of Rand Paul speaks volumes about the Tea Party influence on the otherwise watered-down-Democrat Republican Party of the past.
Paul Ryan (and Mitt Romney) exude economic competence. In contrast, what do Barack Obama and Joe Biden exude? Whatever, it is not economic competence.
I wish we could simply win on the idea of life under liberty, in a republic respectful of natural rights. But, I understand that bragging to the country about our leaders who are not Anglo-Saxon men sends a powerful message.
Barack Obama surely is kicking himself for that “You didn’t build that!” insult.
The extra $6 trillion in debt: “He did build that!”
“Staring up at faded Obama posters…!”
I’d like to have heard support for the right to keep and bear arms, but only about five dolts in the whole country now disagree with the Second Amendment! It’s lonely out there in Bloomberg land.
MJM is energized. Maybe, just maybe, the spirit of Lexington, Concord, and the Boston Tea Party has possessed the Party that for so long has disappointed, scorned, and even betrayed the Spirit of ’76. We’ll, see, because the Democrats have lost this election. And, they know it.
I will watch the Democrat convention. It will be nauseating, but I will watch. But, it will be like attending the last strategy session of General Cornwallis’s staff officers the night we took their fortifications at Yorktown. No, strike that. It will be worse listening to Reid, Pelosi, some loony actors. Oh, yes, and Charlie Crist. Remember him? Probably not. He is the very forgettable former Republican who lost the Florida U.S. senatorial primary to Marco Rubio. At this point, MJM laughs and laughs and laughs.
Democrat readers: This is the year for you to consider which party is actually serious about curbing Blob-like government growth and debt, and then look at each other to exclaim: “Well, I’ll be damned! We’re Republicans!”
But, you Republicans, don’t forget who propelled you to power, don’t forget your lofty promises, and don’t forget just how bad off we now are under the watered-down socialism you have whored with for the last 50 years.
