As much as the Democrats/liberals/progressives/greens/socialists/communists (calling them what they are makes them mad) would love to drive a wedge between the Republican Party and its patriot components, the newly activated grass roots Independents and ‘Tea Baggers’, it looks like they will be disappointed again.
As usual, the statists took exactly the wrong message from the Tea Party Convention. What they reported on was Sarah Palin’s crib notes, ignoring the fact that she delivered a near flawless address of 40 minutes to universal acclaim, both at the convention and across the nation, with six words scribbled on her hand, while Barack Obama can’t speak to sixth grade students without his teleprompters and has trouble delivering two cogent sentences extemporaneously. Further, they isolated the presentation of featured speakers to make the messages appear as divisive as theirs is. What they missed in their eagerness to trash people like Sarah Palin, Tom Tancredo, Andrew Breitbart and others, was the UNANIMITY of purpose and the consistency of the message.
Unlike the mental and philosophical lockstep demanded by liberal dogma, Conservatives can and do disagree… sometimes vociferously. But they have one thing in common that the statist lacks and furthermore, cannot comprehend. It’s the PRINCIPLE of Patriotism, a deep and abiding love of the country and the freedoms that have been gained and maintained for us at so great a cost. It’s a love for the wisdom of the founders and those most miraculous of all documents, inspired by God and given to the hand of these wise and Godly men. Our Constitution, our Declaration of Independence and our Bill of Rights. read more »
Recently the mainstream media was howling with derision over the fact that Sarah Palin had written a few words on the inside of her hand to remind herself of the key themes she wanted to address in her speech at the Tea Party Convention in Nashville last week.
Admittedly, one would have expected subjects such as Energy, Tax Cuts, and Lift American Spirits to be top-of-mind for Palin, who has consistently and admirably embodied these stances throughout her career, including her 2008 vice-presidential run.
What the MSM did not explain was how Obama’s ubiquitous reliance on his TelePrompTer, including at a recent pep talk with sixth-graders in Falls Church, Virginia, somehow reflected a greater skill at extemporizing or a more masterful command of facts on his part.
The Associated Press chided Palin for relying on a memory aid after having mocked Obama’s use of his TelePrompTer. It’s true: Palin did jot down a few notes to help her stay focused during her 40-minute Tea Party Convention keynote address, the second-most important speech of her career. Was Obama’s five-minute chat with 11-year-olds at Graham Road Elementary School so important to his legacy that it required twin, six-foot-tall TelePrompTer monitors to help him get every word right?
Meanwhile, Joe “Gaffe-tastic” Biden has continued to demonstrate his propensity for committing more blunders in any given week than Palin has made in her entire life. Appearing on Larry King last week, Biden stated that the Iraq War “could be one of the great achievements of this administration.” read more »
