Ryan’s economic creds.
Gonna need popcorn.

Random Thoughts

Encouraging news over the weekend: Romney/Ryan packed events with huge crowds, long lines and even traffic jams, the team saw a big uptick in contributions and Romney executed a deft take-down of a heckler using a positive message and a challenge to the President to get his campaign out of the gutter.

And while Romney is drawing overflow crowds, Obama has trouble half-filling a room.

As the left begins to realize there’s blood in the water, how long do you think it will be before we hear a Hollywood celebrity say they’re moving to Canada, New Zealand, etc. if Obama loses? And who will be first? Baldwin? Barr? Glover? Robbins? Penn?

About Ryan’s Medicare reform and how it “will end Medicare as we know it,” someone should remind all of the progressives trying to scare Americans that President Obama said this:

And what I’ve tried to explain to them [Democrats] is, number one, if you look at the numbers, then Medicare in particular will run out of money and we will not be able to sustain that program no matter how much taxes go up. I mean, it’s not an option for us to just sit by and do nothing.

Does that fall into the category of inconvenient truth?

Wow. William Saletan at Slate:

Ryan is a real fiscal conservative. He isn’t just another Tea-Party ideologue spouting dogma about less government and the magic of free enterprise. He has actually crunched the numbers and laid out long-term budget proposals. My liberal friends point out that Ryan’s plan leaves many details unclear. That’s true. But show me another Republican who has addressed the nation’s fiscal problems as candidly and precisely as Ryan has. He’s got the least detailed budget proposal out there, except for all the others.


Did you know that according to GLAAD, the use of the term “Homosexual” is offensive? Seriously. The left doesn’t just use political correctness to silence opposition, now they literally shape the narrative through vocabulary and repressive tolerance.

Have You Cancelled Your Reservations? (Updated)

I have. H/T Empire of Jeff:

The Presidency is bigger than one man, and it’s not just the candidates I’m talking about, it’s us.  If you’re still complaining about the nominee, then go vote for Obama.  Or stay home.  But if you do either of those, keep your mouth shut about it

He’s right. This isn’t about my desire for another candidate instead of Romney. The only alternative is Obama. Simple. From Breitbart’s CPAC 2012 speech:

I don’t care who our candidate is. And I haven’t since the beginning of this. I haven’t. Ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate. And that’s what the Tea Party is. We are there to confront them on behalf of our candidate. I will march behind whoever our candidate is because if we don’t we lose.

There are two paths. There are two paths. One is America. And the other one is Occupy. One is America. The other one is Occupy.


Black, white, gay, and straight, anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker. And if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with this candidate? More than shame on you. You’re on the other side.

It’s not as if I wasn’t on board. But my reservations are cancelled.

[Added:] I’m pretty excited about Ryan as the VP pick. The economic credibility he brings is irrefutable and he’s already been tested by fire.

Bonus Quote

I’ve seen reliable data indicating that as many as 30 million eligible conservatives do not vote. If Barack Obama is reelected, it will not be because of the progressives who come out for him in sufficient numbers to destroy what’s left of the spirit of our country. It will be because we didn’t.Bill Whittle, Afterburner

Quote of the Day


Posted in Quotes | Tagged , | Comments Off on Quote of the Day


I received some mail regarding my “Dear Governor Romney” post yesterday that made two points:

  1. The Country elected Obama to remove warmonger Bush. Why would I push for Romney to be a tough guy with foreign leaders? It’s a losing strategy.
  2. Who cares about my measly $100 bucks, much less an impotent threat to withhold “more”? Romney will focus on big fish and doesn’t care.

1. Obama’s conciliatory attitude towards the world had weakened America’s position. Countries that used to look to us for leadership or at least partnership now understand that they’re on their own as America devolves into self-loathing within, bowing to foreign leaders without and a complete absence of leadership on the domestic or World economic stages. The world no longer believes in America. That is Obama’s legacy.

2. Yes, you’re correct: $100 bucks is measly. But it’s the first donation I’ve ever made to a Presidential Campaign. And correct again, $250 additional dollars is meaningless in the big picture and the threat to withhold it is impotent… from a certain perspective. But think about this: Even if I’m a fringe outlier, there are 311 million Americans. So, let’s say there are only a limited few people who feel like I do, a rare few, say 1 person in every 300 Americans, or .03% of the entire US population. Just doing the math, that’s a paltry 93 thousand Americans, nation-wide, the population of one little city… A little city whose residents won’t be writing checks to Romney totaling just under $25 million dollars.
