Brokering the Convention – Tea Party Nation

Brokering the Convention – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Larry Sabato is a popular guest on political talk shows.  Yesterday he wrote a blog about all the things that would be wrong with a brokered convention.   He just left one thing out.

What was it?

 Sabato, in an interview on Newsmax said a brokered convention would be a disaster.  Specifically it would be a press disaster.

He is right about the press.  The left wing media will be all over the convention.  They will emphasize every fight, every disagreement and every time Ron Paul supporters try to imitate Occupy Wall Street.

However, Sabato missed the biggest disaster of all.

That disaster would be a Mitt Romney nomination.

For all the flaws a brokered convention would bring, they pale in comparison to the idea of nominating a candidate whose campaign will end up looking like Custer’s last stand, except for the certainty that Custer fared better than Romney’s campaign will.

The simple truth is we do not have a great candidate in the GOP race right now.  As a Newt Gingrich supporter, this pains me to say it, as I believe Gingrich would be a great President, but he has not been able to close the deal.   Santorum has a singular ability to turn the campaign from the points that would make it victorious for the Republicans and turn it to the Democrat’s advantage.  

Then there is Mitt Romney.   He is the flip-flopping liberal who will say whatever it takes to be elected. The champion of the Republican Establishment. 

The truth that the Republican Party must accept is we need someone else. 

A brokered convention will not be a simple affair.  But it is necessary this time. 

The Establishment does not want a brokered convention.  If we conservatives have a majority of the delegates, even if they are split between Gingrich and Santorum, we will take the power away from them.

We need a new candidate who can come out of the convention and take the battle to Obama.

Who could that be?

How about Allen West?

The Florida Congressman and retired Army Officer is the kind of man who can fire up the base.  The Tea Party loves West.

Allen West is the kind of man who calls it likes he sees it.  Anyone remember him telling Nancy Pelosi and her ilk to get the hell out of this country?

Does anyone think Mitt Romney would say anything remotely like that?  How about Santorum?  Even Gingrich?  Who else speaks with that kind of passion?  There are few that do.
 

West understands that politics is a battlefield.  West has been under fire in Iraq.  West understands loyalty to America and to Americans.  That is such a refreshing change from Barack Obama.

West is a man of conviction and principles, which is such a refreshing, change from Mitt Romney.

We have to have a brokered convention to stop Romney and if we do, we need a good candidate.

Allen West might just be the man.

Four More Years. – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Are you ready for four more years of Barack Obama and the Party of Treason in charge of the White House?  If not, you need to get ready.  We are only one step away from that and there is only one thing we can do to stop it.

 What is it?

 If you are in Illinois tomorrow, vote for Newt Gingrich

 Some folks are going, oh no not again.  Some others are asking, “didn’t you get the memo.  Gingrich cannot win.”

 You are right.  Newt cannot win.  He is all but mathematically eliminated in the delegate race.  Even Newt knows this. 

 Newt’s strategy is now simple.  Deny Romney the nomination. 

 This needs to be the strategy of the conservative movement.  We need to deny Romney the nomination by getting as many conservatives picked as Delegates for the Republican Convention in Tampa this August. 

 If Romney is nominated, Obama will almost certainly win.   Romney can only win in areas where he massively outspends his opponents.   He won’t be able to outspend Obama.  His best-case scenario is close to parity.  More than likely Obama will be able to out spend him significantly.

 Plus Obama will have an energized base.  Conservatives will be out there voting for Romney but we won’t be out there doing the boots on the groundwork that has to be done.

 Romney is a disaster for the GOP and the sooner we embrace the idea of an open convention that denies Romney the nomination, the better off we are. 

 Who can come out of the Convention as a nominee?  If we get enough conservatives as delegates we have a chance for someone who can excite the base and win.   I still believe Newt Gingrich is the best candidate out there, but if he has not been able to close the deal in the primary, the chances of him being chosen by a deadlocked convention are remote.

 We need someone who will take Newt’s ideas forward. Unlike Romney, Newt is talking about $2.50 a gallon gas.  That’s something that looks pretty good as we head into the third summer of the Great Obama Depression and gas prices spike towards $5 a gallon.   Newt is talking about cutting taxes.  Romney is simply talking about managing big government. 

 Who could we get as a nominee?  Certainly not a Bush nor a northeastern liberal like Chris Christie

 Paul Ryan’s name has popped up some in the discussions.  He would be a good choice or perhaps we could get the convention to go really outside of the box and get someone we are not even thinking of. 

 The RINOs are screaming about how a brokered convention would be a disaster.   A disaster for who?  The establishment?  Certainly, it would be a disaster for them.   For rank and file Republicans and for real Americans, a brokered convention offers the opportunity for a conservative candidate to emerge. 

 Who is our next Reagan?

 It certainly is not liberal Mitt Romney

 We need to start looking for him or her and we need to keep fighting to make certain Mitt Romney does not win the nomination. 

 The best way we can stop Romney is by getting our friends and family to vote for Newt.  If you are in Illinois, help save America.  In the GOP primary tomorrow, vote for Newt!

The ‘Inevitability’ Vote – Thomas Sowell – Townhall Conservative Columnists

The ‘Inevitability’ Vote – Thomas Sowell – Townhall Conservative Columnists.

Many people may be voting for Mitt Romney because of the view in some quarters that he is the inevitable Republican candidate for President of the United States and the candidate with the best chance of beating Barack Obama, rather than because they actually prefer Romney to the other candidates.

Inevitability has a very unreliable track record. Within living memory, totalitarianism was considered to be “the wave of the future.” During the primary season, people should vote for whomever they prefer, on their own merits, not because pundits have pronounced them inevitable.

Regardless of what the polls or the pundits say about Mitt Romney’s chances of winning the Republican nomination, the conditions that made him the front runner in the primaries are the direct opposite of the conditions for the general election.

The biggest single reason why Governor Romney is the front runner is that he has had the overwhelming advantage in money spent and in “boots on the ground” running his campaign in states across the country.

Romney has outspent each of his rivals — and all of his rivals put together. His campaign organization has been operating for years, and it has put his name on the ballot everywhere, while neither Santorum nor Gingrich had a big enough organization to get on the ballot in an important state like Virginia.

In the general election, President Obama will have all the advantages against Romney that Romney currently has against his Republican rivals. Barack Obama will have boots on the ground everywhere — not just members of the Democratic Party organization but thousands of labor union members as well.

Incumbency alone guarantees the president plenty of money to finance his campaign, not only from enthusiastic supporters but also from businesses regulated by the government, who know that holders of political power demand tribute. And the mainstream media will give Obama more publicity than Romney can buy.

How does anyone ever defeat a sitting president then? They do it because they have a message that rings and resonates. The last Republican to defeat a sitting president was Ronald Reagan. He was the only Republican to do so in the 20th century.

He didn’t do it with polls. At one point during the election campaign, President Jimmy Carter led Ronald Reagan with 58 percent to 40 percent in the polls. So much for the polls that so many are relying on so heavily today.

The question is not which Republican looks better against Barack Obama in the polls today, before the general election campaign begins. The question is which Republican can take the fight to Barack Obama, as Reagan took the fight to Carter, and win the poll that ultimately matters, the vote on election day.

The biggest fighting issue for Republicans is ObamaCare. Can the author of RomneyCare as governor of Massachusetts make that an effective issue by splitting hairs over state versus federal mandates? Can a man who has been defensive about his own wealth fight off the standard class warfare of Barack Obama, who can push all the demagogic buttons against Mitt Romney as one of the one-percenters?

Rick Santorum, and especially Newt Gingrich, are fighters — and this election is going to be a fight to the finish, with the fate of this country in the balance. Mitt Romney has depended on massive character assassination advertising campaigns to undermine his rivals. That will not work against Barack Obama.

Even a truthful account of the Obama administration’s many disastrous failures, at home and abroad, will be automatically countered by the mainstream media, 90 percent of whom voted for Obama in the 2008 election.

It is truer in this election than in most that “it takes a candidate to beat a candidate.” And that candidate has to offer both himself and his vision. Massive ad campaigns against rivals is not a vision.

Some, like President Bush 41, disdained “the vision thing” — and he lost the presidency that he had inherited from Ronald Reagan, lost it to a virtual unknown from Arkansas.

The vision matters, more than the polls and even more than incumbency in the White House.

The DEMS &Chevy Volt – Something in Common – Tea Party Nation

The DEMS &Chevy Volt – Something in Common – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Marcia Wood

We’re at a point in time that the Democrat’s and Liberal News Media have just flat run out of new ammo.  Their political rhetoric resembles the malfunctioning Chevy Volt that blew up after a few crash tests.   The more they keep repeating the same ole, same ole the less credibility they have and the quicker they crash.

They’ve used the race card, Bush Card, the God card, women’s right card and even the ATM card to no avail.  They’ll tell a big whopper and all their little bros and sisters will jump on their stumps and swear to it.  Example of this is the contraceptive mandate in the Obamacare bill – Pelosi used her muscle and planted Sandra Fluke as a decoy; Sandra’s assignment was to change the contraceptive mandate from a malicious Religious Freedom issue to a women’s right issue. 

Well, as usual their scheme backfired when Sandra Fluke realized they’d used her good name to promote an illegal Obamacare mandate.  But, the buck pretty much stops here – Fluke just slam dunked Pelosi and DEMS.  Fluke a political activist isn’t really worrying about women’s rights; Fluke is fighting for sex change or gender reassignment.

In an article that Fluke co –authored with Karen Hu she said, “Transgender persons wishing to undergo the gender reassignment process frequently face heterosexist employer health insurance policies that label the surgery as cosmetic or medically unnecessary and therefore uncovered.” 

Sandra is scrambling now to regain any minute bit of credibility she might have and like Anthony Weiner her story seems to be changing daily. Now, Fluke says she really didn’t want Americans to think they should buy contraceptives for her – I guess she was just speaking in behalf of her friends with voracious sex appetites.  FYI Ms. Fluke – for about 9.95 you can get all the contraceptives for a month that your little heart desires and our Constitution gives all women the right to use or not to use contraceptives.

In 2012 the Democrats and Liberal News Media are accelerating their race bating, Republican bashing, class warfare and character assassinations because Obama 2012 Presidential Campaign along with their viewer rating is basically in the “gutter.” 

Here’s a rundown on the Cable News Media:

  • Total      day: FNC: 1.265 | MSNBC: 577 | CNN:      508 | HLN: 261
  • Primetime:      FNC: 2.361 | MSNBC: 1.105 | CNN: 1.038 | HLN: 450

FOX is far ahead of the pack because viewers have grown weary of the blatant lies and malicious character attacks on people like Hermann Cain, Sarah Palin, Michelle Backmann, Lora Ingraham, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Scott Walker and the list just keeps rolling on…  

Many Democrats are angry with their Commander in Chief because of the rapidly rising gas prices and the scuttlebutt on the street is Joe Biden has probably started the “impeachment “process against Obama.  Here’s what VP Biden said, “I made it clear to the President,” a furious Biden declared, “that if he takes this nation to war without Congressional approval, I will make it my business to impeach him. That is a fact.” 

Americans have a duty to correct or refute the misinformation that the Democrats and Liberal News Media are blasting across cable news, radio, Twitter, Facebook 24/7.  Here’s a quote from Ronald Reagan, “A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Jimmy Carter loses his.” 

To paraphrase this a bit, let’s say our recovery in 2012 is when “Obama” loses his job.  

Obama’s Covert Plan To Raise Gas Prices – Chuck Norris – Townhall Conservative Columnists

Obama’s Covert Plan To Raise Gas Prices – Chuck Norris – Townhall Conservative Columnists.

President Barack Obama’s energy plan involves radically increasing gas prices to the European rate of about $10 a gallon. And he’s well on his way, as gas prices have more than doubled since he took office in January 2009, when gasoline was only $1.79 per gallon. And he’s scheming to double prices again in his second term, with you footing the bill.

It’s no secret that we’re being gouged at the pumps. The reason for soaring gas prices? According to Obama, it’s not because of anything he has done — not his devaluing the dollar via his disastrous economic decisions, his closing federal lands for oil production opened by his predecessor, his passing cap-and-trade legislation in the middle of the worst economy since the Great Depression or his refusing to stand strong against the regime in Iran, which controls 20 percent of the world’s oil supply via the Strait of Hormuz.

President Obama would do well to take his own advice; in regard to the possibility of $3-a-gallon gas in 2006, the then senator said, “The time for excuses is over.”

To add insult to injury, Obama has appointed some petroleum-pillaging politicians, such as Energy Secretary Steven Chu, who, according to The Wall Street Journal, said in 2008 that in order to wean Americans off gasoline, the administration should make them punitively pay at the pump: “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

And just two weeks ago, as reported by Politico, Chu told Congress that Obama’s Department of Energy “isn’t working to lower gasoline prices directly” but “is working to promote alternatives such as biofuels and electric vehicles.”

When Rep. Alan Nunnelee, R-Miss., specifically asked Chu whether the Obama administration’s goal is to lower gas prices, he emphatically replied, “No.” (Out of the horse’s mouth!)

But I suppose the views of Obama-appointed officials such as Chu don’t have any bearing on soaring gas prices, right?

Chu again embraced the strategy to raise gas prices in order to increase green alternatives to Chris Wallace, host of “Fox News Sunday,” in February 2011, when he said: “The price of gasoline over the long haul should be expected to go up just because of supply and demand issues. And so we see this in the buying habits of Americans as they make choices for the next car they buy.”

Increasing gas prices in order to wean us off gasoline and onto biofuel alternatives is a ruse — a deceptive strategy laid on the backs of American citizens.

This is what Obama meant two weeks ago when he repackaged and re-pitched his “new energy policy” from a gas station in Indianapolis. The words on his podium were “Investing in Energy Independence.” Notice he didn’t say who is doing the investing or with whose money he is investing. It might seem as if spending — I mean investing — your money is Obama’s forte, but to me, it smells like more capitalism-crushing B.O. (See http://www.spreadingbo.com.)

This president has mastered cloaking the truth in oratory rhetoric. In last Saturday’s presidential address, Obama hailed his oft-repeated petroleum apologetic: “While we consume 20 percent of the world’s oil, we only have 2 percent of the world’s oil reserves.” The problem is that 2 percent to which he refers is extant reserves, not what we could produce. That’s deceptive!

Speaking of misleading, this past week, Chu was at it again as he testified before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Energy and Power. Dodging a question about whether he practices what he preaches by owning an electric car, Chu replied sheepishly, “No, I don’t own a car at the moment.” (Before you commend him for his bio-walking, it should be noted that he’s chauffeured in U.S. government Cadillac Esplanades, which, of course, run on fossil fuels like his wife’s BMW.)

If you are ready for real hope and change, then I have the option for you.

I believe we can continue to seek alternative energy solutions while lowering gas prices by implementing a super energy solution, the one that former speaker of the House and current GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has proposed.

Gingrich’s plan? As I noted last week, it is the polar opposite of Obama’s. Newt is ready on day one of his presidency to begin to implement his plan to expand leasing of federal lands for oil and gas development, condense regulations to make it easier for companies to build new extraction sites, tap shale reservoirs, start building the Keystone XL pipeline, replace the Environmental Protection Agency with a new, economically rational Environmental Solutions Agency, and, as a result of these bold solutions, end our dependency on foreign oil, reduce the cost of gas (to $2.50 per gallon), create millions of domestic American jobs, and bring in billions of dollars of new revenue for the U.S. by making us one of the largest global exporters of various fuels.

You can get many more details of Newt’s energy- and job-building plan by watching his 30-minute address at http://bit.ly/xcKGuT.

Newt and I, as well as millions of other American patriots, believe in aggressively pursuing renewable energy alternatives and development, but not at the risk of losing our petroleum and economic shorts while we’re doing it. As is often the case in life and politics, the answer is “both… and…”

It bears repeating that Bloomberg Businessweek reported in November that “unlocking vast reserves of shale gas could solve the energy crisis, the jobs crisis, and the deficit.”

If you are ready for real change — if you want to stabilize our economy, increase jobs, lower gas prices and restore our republic simultaneously — then shout it out to Washington and the nation: “Get off your gas! Drill, and vote Newt Gingrich!”

Gas pains – Tea Party Nation

Gas pains – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

There is a ticking time bomb that is slowly exploding over the American electorate.  This is the time bomb that will be one of the primary causes for Barack Obama being a one-term blunder.

 What is it?

 It is the rising gas prices we are all seeing.

 Gas prices started this year at $3.13 a gallon.  Today they are $3.67 a gallon.   Predictions are we will see $5 a gallon by this summer.  All over real America, rising gas prices are causing Americans real pain.  Higher gas prices not only cost Americans more money at the pump, but the ripple effect will push up prices, such as food.

 I was on MSNBC today and Martin Bashir and I discussed this.  Bashir, like all of the hosts on MSNBC is a liberal and he was shocked that Newt Gingrich’s $2.50 a gallon gas plan is resonating with real Americans.

 While the Obama regime pushes high gas prices, Americans want lower gas prices. 

 From the Los Angeles Times:

 President Obama’s approval rating has taken a hit in a new poll that shows a growing frustration with the president’s handling of the economy.

 The Washington Post/ABC poll found that 46% of people approve of the Obama’s job performance, while 50% disapprove. That’s a reversal of the president’s ratings just last month, when his approval hit 50% for the first time in that survey in nearly a year.

 The quick drop coincides with a spike in gas prices and an increase in criticism from Obama’s Republican rivals on the issue, even as the economy has shown noticeable signs of growth.

 But the poll underscored how rising gas prices – always a political peril for presidents — threaten to keep Obama from reaping the rewards of the good economic news. Obama’s top rivals, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, were running roughly even with the president.

 The poll found 65% of those surveyed disapproved of Obama’s handling of gas prices.

 Newt Gingrich has the right idea when he says we can push the price down to $2.50 a gallon.   If anything, Newt’s plan lacks some ambition.  Based on history, there is no reason to doubt that if we tried; the price of gas could be pushed down much further.

 Obama is never going to do this.  He does not believe in America nor does he believe that Americans should have cheap energy.

 The bad news is America is suffering under the policies of the Obama regime and is having to pay for the high gas prices he wants us to have.   The good news is, they higher the gas prices go, the chances of Obama’s reelection go down.

WOLF: Mitt beat Rick, but Newt beat Barack – Washington Times.

Only one Republican has made Obama squirm

By Dr. Milton R. Wolf – The Washington Times

This wouldn’t be the first time the media missed the real story. In the wake of a split Super Tuesday, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum scored wins against each other, but it was former Speaker Newt Gingrich who single-handedly drove President Obama into panic mode.

Mr. Romney deserves enormous credit for his success in the early primaries, but the undeniable fact remains that he has not demonstrated the ability to win a race without vastly outspending his opponents, often by 5-to-1 and even 12-to-1. He will not enjoy this luxury against the sitting president and the billion-dollar Obama machine. Veteran political writer John Fund says Republicans are “fooling themselves” if they ignore this sobering reality.

Mr. Santorum has outperformed expectations but continues to make himself an easy target for Democrats. Eagerly taking the bait, the former senator declared of birth control, “It’s not OK.”

Mr. Santorum offered up the verbal equivalent of former President Lyndon B. Johnson showing off his gallbladder surgical scar by doubling down on his prior assertion that former president John F. Kennedy’s speech on the separation of church and state makes him want to “throw up.” Sigh. The commercials write themselves.

And Ron Paul. Few love our Constitution as much as Mr. Paul, and for that, many of us love him dearly. If only we could convince him that a nuclear Iran poses as much of a threat to our Constitution as does the Federal Reserve. Should Mahmoud Ahmadinejad successfully launch a strike against Israel, or worse yet, America, brace yourself for a beefed-up Patriot Act 2.0 and a military budget that expands faster than Terry Bradshaw’s waistline before Nutrisystem.

And then there was Newt Gingrich, the Lazarus of the presidential campaign, as the Drudge Report recently called him, ready to rise once again. While the mainstream media stayed focused on the game of checkers between Mr. Romney and Mr. Santorum, Mr. Gingrich forced President Obama into an astonishing game of chess.

In a 30-minute video titled “$2.50 per Gallon Gasoline, Energy Independence and Jobs,” Mr. Gingrich unveiled his vision for renewed American prosperity centered around oil and natural-gas production. He demonstrated his unparalleled insight into the intersection of energy, security and prosperity. Mr. Gingrich rightly declared that never again should an American president bow before a Saudi king. Meanwhile, Mr. Obama, stung by his recent half-billion-dollar failed Solyndra boondoggle, began floating his latest green fantasy of harvesting algae to cure the pain at the pump.

Panicked by Mr. Gingrich, Mr. Obama was forced off his game and repeatedly tried to respond, only making matters worse for himself. He stayed true to the Democrats’ anti-energy agenda and mocked Republicans for wanting to drill for new oil. This made the president the butt of a joke for Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show”: Democrats claim that new drilling for oil won’t help us for at least 10 years, but haven’t they been saying that now for more than 10 years?

Mr. Obama boasts that oil production is up under his administration. True, but only because the president hasn’t yet stopped production on privately owned land. Mr. Gingrich cut right through his profound dishonesty: “Under President Obama, because he is so anti-American-energy, we have actually had a 40 percent reduction in development of oil offshore, and we have had a 40 percent reduction in the development of oil on federal lands,” Mr. Gingrich pounced. “So in the area he controls, production is down and the area that is hard at the free enterprise stuff where people get rich, production is up. So he is now claiming credit for the area he can’t control in order to have us think he is actually for what he opposes.”

Mr. Gingrich reduced the once-confident “Yes, we can!” 2008 version of Mr. Obama into the backpedaling “It’s not my fault” 2012 version right before our eyes. A defensive Mr. Obama dissembled: “We know there’s no silver bullet that will bring down gas prices or reduce our dependence on foreign oil overnight.” Wait, what about that algae?

Newt had Barack right where he wanted him.

“A presidential pen could today sign approval of the Keystone pipeline. That’s 700,000 barrels a day. A presidential pen could today sign approval to go back to the Gulf of Mexico. That’s about 400,000 barrels a day. A presidential pen could today approve areas of Alaska that we know have oil.” With three signatures, Mr. Gingrich instructed the president, “you would have 2.3 million barrels a day of additional energy in the United States. So I would say, we’re not looking for silver bullets. We’re looking for presidential leadership.” Check and checkmate.

With this, Peter Ferrara, former adviser to President Reagan, declared that Mr. Obama had just lost his first debate. The GOP race remains open. So ask yourself this: Which Republican candidate beside Newt Gingrich has demonstrated the ability to make Barack Obama squirm?

Obama: Honor Ms Fluke & All Women by Giving Back Maher’s Money – Tea Party Nation

Obama: Honor Ms Fluke & All Women by Giving Back Maher’s Money – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Lloyd Marcus

Obama: Honor Ms Fluke & All Women by Giving Back Maher's Money - Tea Party Nation

MILF is an acronym used in pornography for “Mother I’d Like to F—“. Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a MILF. Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a “dumb twat”. Bill Maher joked that Sarah Palin’s Down Syndrome baby was the result of Palin having sex with John Edwards. Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a C-word. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2OUJ8ZUTiI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGE3G5kfzps

President Obama phoned Ms Fluke to find out if she was OK regarding the Limbaugh comment. To be consistent in his concern for women, shouldn’t President Obama give back the million dollar contribution to his super PAC from Bill Maher, a serial vitriolic abuser of Sarah Palin, who to the best of my recollection is a “woman”?

The liberal media is ignoring Obama’s blatant hypocrisy in accepting campaign money from Bill Maher who has a history of down in the gutter disrespectful remarks about conservative women.

The truth of the matter is the democrats and liberal media do not give a rat’s rear end about any of the voting blocs they claim to champion; blacks, women and etc. To the left “people” are just media props to be used to increase their power and further their socialistic agenda.

Democrats and media campaigning for Limbaugh to be forced off the radio have completely ignored, and in many cases joined in, the high tech lynching of black conservatives and the verbal raping of the dignity of conservative women. As far as the left is concerned, no attack is too much or comment too viscous/disrespectful when the subject is a conservative black or woman. Their glaring hypocrisy is outrageous.

Bill Maher received zero rebuke from the mainstream media for vulgarly calling Palin a MILF, dumb twat and c-word. Sarah Palin received zero sympathy from the mainstream media for Maher calling her a MILF, dumb twat and c-word.

What is the left’s response to racist comments about black conservatives and sexual insulting comments about conservative women? They laugh!

Conservative presidential candidate Michele Bachmann appeared on the NBC Jimmy Fallon TV show and the band played “Lyin’ A– B—-”. For the most part, the mainstream media simply laughed.

So please forgive my uncontrollable gag response every time I hear mainstream media and democrats claiming to be defenders of minorities and women. If you are a black who rebels against your media assigned democrat massas and black plantation overseers, you are a “stupid n—–”, which I have been called on several occasions.

In essence, the mainstream media and democrats told black former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, Boy, you had better get your black a– back on our liberal plantation where you belong. Who do you think you are running as a Republican? You’re due for a severe whippin’!

If you are a truly liberated woman who loves God, your husband and kids while also achieving success outside of the home, according to Bill Maher, you are a stupid, slut and a c—. And what is the media’s response to these attacks on conservative blacks and women? Silence or laughter.

Folks, can you imagine what the media and democrats would do to a conservative repeating any of Bill Maher’s comments referring to a “liberal” woman? Think about it – MILF, dumb twat and c-word.

Meanwhile, President Obama holds the telephone consoling Ms Fluke with one hand while accepting a million dollar super PAC check from Bill Maher, an unrepentant brutal abuser of conservative women with his other hand.

From David Gregory’s interview with Newt Gingrich in which Gregory attempts to make the Limbaugh/ Fluke controversy the most important issue in America to the mainstream media’s extremely loud silence about Obama accepting campaign funds from a serial abuser of women – the media bias is blatant, shameless, unpatriotic, characterless and just plain evil. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=PYrCF5jPsVM

Mainstream media how dare you ever again insult the intelligence of the American people telling us you care about women. You are nothing more than an arm of the Democrat National Committee and Obama Reelection Campaign. You sold-out your country to make a deal with the devil who promised you a Socialistic/Progressive hostile takeover of America. Shame. Shame. Shame.

The Myth of Romney – Tea Party Nation

The Myth of Romney – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Myths have this habit of hanging around, growing and even be repeated and believed.  Mitt Romney is the center of one of the biggest myths going around.

 What is the myth of Romney?

 The myth of Romney is that he is electable.  It is right up there with the myth he is a conservative. 

 The headlines for today by the Romney friendly media are that Romney one two states.   As always the drive by media does not go into the story the way it should be delved into. 

 Romney won Arizona handily.   He took 47% to Santorum’s 26%, Gingrich’s 16% and Paul’s 8%.  That sounds impressive until you realize the other three did not challenge Romney in Arizona.   Romney had the endorsement of the sitting governor, was not really contested by the other candidates and he still could not break 50% of the vote. 

 In Michigan, even though Romney won, the results can only be called a disaster.  Romney calls Michigan his home state.   He was raised there and his father was a popular governor there.  He went in, as always out spending his opponents.  In this case, he only had one real opponent, Rick Santorum.   Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul both passed on Michigan to concentrate on other contests.  Once again, Romney one but he only won by three percent and while this time his vote total exceeded what he had four years ago, this is the first contest in a while where that has happened.  Even with two candidates basically sitting Michigan out, Romney could only barely break 40%.  Almost 60% of the voters of what is allegedly Romney’s home state do not want him. 

 That says something.

 There is a trend here that even Myth Romney should be able to figure out. 

 When Romney wins he must outspend his opponents five or ten to one and he is depressing the Republican voting base.  If Romney cannot, even with a huge financial lead, draw more voters than he did four years ago in the primary, what is he going to do this fall when he is the one being outspent five to one? 

 It is time for the Republican Party to act.   It is time for the Party hierarchy to sit down with not only the establishment but with Tea Party and conservative activists to find a consensus candidate who can in fact beat Barack Obama this fall. 

 Myth Romney is not that candidate.  He has proven that repeatedly.  The GOP electorate has not really fallen in love with any of the candidates this year.  The closest candidate who has excited the GOP base is Newt Gingrich.  This is because where Gingrich has won, the voter turnout was up.  This is something that will be desperately needed this fall.

 Last week I said that I would support the GOP nominee this fall, even if it was Romney because Obama is simply so bad. 

 I am now rethinking that. 

 Obama must be beat.  I am willing to support almost any Republican who can get in there and beat Obama.  But that is the rub.  I am willing to support almost any Republican who has a chance to beat Obama. 

 Romney has no chance. 

 The Republican Party needs to realize this train is going down the rails and off the cliff.

 If the Republican Party wishes to commit ritual political suicide, why should any conservative activist waste their time playing Doctor Kevorkian to the GOP?

 Meanwhile, perhaps we conservative activists should be asking the GOP, if you don’t want to win, could we borrow your party for a little while?

The only good news for the Republicans coming out of the seemingly endless presidential candidate “debates” is that some Republican leaders are now belatedly thinking about how they can avoid a repetition of this debacle in future elections.

What could they possibly have been thinking about, in the first place, when they agreed to a format based on short sound bites for dealing with major complex issues, and with media journalists — 90 percent of them Democrats — picking the topics?

The conduct of the candidates made things worse. In a world with a record-breaking national debt and Iran moving toward creating nuclear weapons, they bickered over earmarks and condoms. I am against earmarks, but earmarks don’t rank among the first hundred most serious problems facing this country.

Mud-slinging has replaced rational discussions of differences on serious issues — not only during the debates themselves, where the moderators sic the candidates on each other, but even more so in the massive television character assassination ads in which Romney supporters seem to specialize.

Groups supporting Mitt Romney have turned character assassination almost into a science. You take something that most people, outside of politics, do not understand and twist it to sound terrible to those who are unaware of the facts.

Blanketing Florida with misleading ads attacking Newt Gingrich won that state for Romney, after Gingrich scored an upset victory in South Carolina. The ads made a big deal out of charges that the former Speaker broke tax laws — charges that the Internal Revenue Service exonerated him of, after a long investigation.

When Rick Santorum suddenly surged after his upset victories in Minnesota, Missouri and Colorado, the Romney character assassination machine attacked him for having voted in the Senate for various things that conservatives don’t like.

But, when it comes to voting in Congress, seldom do you get a pure bill that you can agree with in all its parts. If you never voted for bills containing anything you didn’t like, you might get very little voting done.

But, if it is a bill to provide American soldiers with the equipment they need to fight a war, and somebody has put into it an earmark for a federal boondoggle in his district, are you going to vote against that bill and let American soldiers go into battle without all the equipment and supplies they need?

Taking advantage of the public’s lack of knowledge is something that Barack Obama already does very effectively in his political propaganda. But is that something the Republicans want to imitate?

It has worked during the primary season, when the media are perfectly happy to see Republicans destroying each other. But it will not work in the general election campaign, when even truthful criticisms of the president will have a hard time getting out through the media, which hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil when it comes to Obama.

The pettiness and mud-slinging during the Republican primary campaigns is especially irresponsible during a time when there are very serious problems, at home and abroad, that need to be addressed in a serious way.

Discussions of particular issues, one by one, often miss the larger point that goes beyond the issue at hand — namely, this administration’s steady movement toward arbitrary government that circumvents the restrictions of the Constitution.

Nothing demonstrates this more starkly than the president’s arbitrary power to waive the requirement that employers have to provide ObamaCare coverage for their workers. That can be the difference between paying, or not paying, millions of dollars. What does that mean for anybody’s other rights?

What does freedom of speech mean if criticizing the administration can mean you get no exemption, while your competitor who keeps quiet, or who praises the administration, gets a waiver? The Constitution requires “equal protection of the laws” for a reason.

And what about nuclear weapons in the hands of Iran, the world’s leading sponsor of international terrorism? Is that not worth discussing in something other than sound bites?
