Senator Rand Paul R-KY) Wows Them at CPAC 2013 … “The GOP Of Old Has Grown Stale And Moss-Covered”

Why we love Rand Paul and why it’s about time we start seriously start considering him for the GOP Presidential candidate for 2016 …

Fresh off his 13 hour Senate filibuster, Kentucky Conservative Senator Rand Paul lit up the room at CPAC as he reminded the Republican party about conservatism and the principles on which the GOP was founded upon. Much to the CPAC crowds approval, Rand Paul stated  that “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.” A less than vale slap back at John McCain and the establishment Republicans that have all but destroyed and watered down the Republican party. It is a fight for the soul of the Republican party and it is time the fossils of old, John McCain, need to go away and make way for the new, principled party GOP.

“The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered,” Mr. Paul said. “The new GOP, the GOP that will win again, will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and personal sphere. If we are going to have a Republican Party that can win, liberty needs to be the backbone of the GOP.”

Like the Republican Party as a whole, the 8,000 conservative activists gathered at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, just outside the Capitol Beltway in Maryland, are debating which direction the GOP should go after a second consecutive presidential defeat.

 Rand Paul Calls the GOP Like it Is … “the GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered.”

 

The GOP of old has grown stale and moss-covered. I don’t think we need to name any names, do we? Our party is encumbered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. The new GOP will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and the personal sphere. If we’re going to have a Republican party that can win, liberty needs to be the backbone of the GOP. We must have a message that is broad, our vision must be broad, and that vision must be based on freedom.

Any body who references liberty as a core principle of the party gets my attention.

GOP light and a gutless party has delivered us John McCain and Mitt Romney. Enough said. How Romney could have lost to an incumbent president with an economy in shambles and an unpopular Obamacare is head scratching to say the least. Is it any wonder why Romney is considered a B-lister at this year’s CPAC? What, does the MSM think he is a superstar for the GOP? Sorry, those honors are given to Ted Cruz. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul.

Its a 2012 Presidential Election GOP, Romney Omen … First Week of NFL, Tampa Bay Defeats Carolina 16 -10

Hey, could the opening weekend of the NFL season be an omen for the 2012 Presidential election?

The past couple of weeks have felt like political conventionpalooza. First the GOP had the positive message, America cannot afford another 4 more years of Obama RNC convention in Tampa Bay, FL. That was followed up by the DNC “Godless” convention in Charlotte, NC. President Barack Obama was supposed to give his convention speech in Bank of America stadium, the home of the Carolina Panthers. That was until the bad weather, the hail, the tornadoes, the clouds … no, the fact really was that the stadium was “too big to fill”. Obama could not fill the 70,000 seat stadium so they moved the speech indoors to the 15K arena.

Although it appears that Barack Obama has received a convention bounce, there is a long way to go before this story is over. Also, in all of the battleground states, Obama does not have a 50% or greater polling number. Something which is usually considered a must for an incumbent. Add to the election that the Democrats decided to do it against God.

Also, the full first weekend and the true start of the NFL season began today and as fate would have it Tampa Bay defeated the Carolina today 16 – 10. Hmm, I sense a metaphor here. Its a sign of things to come. Carolina [Obama] was a 3 point favorite over Carolina [Romney]. Guess what, Tampa Bay won by 6. Hmm … more to come.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio Introduces Mitt Romney at the RNC in Tampa, FL …” Our Problem Isn’t that Barack Obama is a Bad Person, Our Problem is he is a Bad President”

Another GOP superstar hits it out of the park …

Senator Marco Rubio (FL-R) rocked the house in Tampa, FL at the RNC convention as the home town hero and GOP rock star inspired the Republican faithful. Tonight Rubio introduced GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney. But before he did, Rubio took the opportunity to talk about Romney’s past and blasted Barack Obama’s failed presidency. As reported at the WSJ, In a rousing speech infused with the theme of American exceptionalism, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio introduced Mitt Romney to those gathered for the Republican National Convention’s culminating moment. Rubio had line after line of American exceptionalism and Obama’s lack there of.

“Our problem with President Obama isn’t that he’s a bad person. By all accounts, he too is a good husband, and a good father — and thanks to lots of practice, a pretty good golfer.”

“Our problem is he’s a bad president.”

The full text of Rubio’s speech can be read at RCP. Here are some excerpts from Rubio’s speech:

 The new slogan for the president’s campaign is “Forward.”

A government that spends $1 trillion more than it takes in.

An $800 billion stimulus that created more debt than jobs.

A government intervention into health care paid for with higher taxes and cuts to Medicare.

Then Rubio discussed Obama’s change from 2008 to 2012, what happened to any positive message?

He tells Americans they’re worse off because others are better off. That people got rich by making others poor.

Hope and Change has become Divide and Conquer.

Rubio questions Obama’s forward these as individuals come to America to get away from these types of ideas.

These ideas don’t move us “Forward,” they take us “Backwards.”

These are tired and old big government ideas. Ideas that people come to America to get away from. Ideas that threaten to make America more like the rest of the world, instead of helping the world become more like America.

What a personal touch Rubio added talking of his father’s sacrifice so that his son could do better.

He stood behind a bar in the back of the room all those years, so one day I could stand behind a podium in the front of a room.

That journey, from behind that bar to behind this podium, goes to the essence of the American miracle — that we’re exceptional not because we have more rich people here.

So Do You Feel Lucky? Clinto Eastwood Looks to Go Ahead, Make My Day … The Mystery RNC Speaker is Revealed

The mystery guest speaking at the RNC tonight has finally been confirmed and it promises to “Make our Day”.

There has been much speculation as to who the “mystery speaker” might be at tonight’s RNC Convention. So do you feel lucky? Hollywood Oscar winning actor and director Clint Eastwood will address the RNC and make a “Sudden Impact”.

Clint Eastwood will be the “mystery guest” at the Republican National Convention’s final night, a GOP source confirmed Thursday.

Eastwood, a longtime Republican, is expected to walk through the convention floor in the afternoon for a brief rundown of the night’s events.

The actor endorsed Romney at an Idaho fund-raiser at the beginning of August, where he told reporters beforehand he was backing the Republican presidential candidate “because I think the country needs a boost somewhere.”

Mitt Romney pulled even with President Barack Obama in a Reuters/Ipsos poll at 43%

Don’t look now, but the polls are shifting. According to a Reuters new poll, Mitt Romney, the GOP nominee, and President Barack Obama are now tied at 43% a piece. These are worrisome numbers for an incumbent polling so far under 50%. Romney has the opportunity to wow the crowd and after Paul Ryan’s and Condi’s speech last night the Romney numbers will only increase. In next week’s Democrat National Convention Obama is going to have to explain the poor economy and another week of poor first time unemployment filing up 370,000.  The prior week’s figure was revised up to show 2,000 more applications than previously reported.

Republican Mitt Romney pulled even with President Barack Obama in a Reuters/Ipsos poll on Wednesday, getting a boost from his party’s nominating convention in Tampa this week.

In a four-day rolling poll, Romney and Obama were deadlocked among likely voters at 43 percent each. That was an improvement for Romney from Obama’s two-point lead on Tuesday and four-point lead on Monday.

“There is movement toward Romney, which is traditional for a convention,” Ipsos pollster Julia Clark said. “It’s small and the change is incremental, but it’s been moving the last couple of days.”

As reported at The American Thinker, Mitt Romney’s speech tonight is expected to draw 40 million viewers. If he does reasonably well, he might end up getting a nice 6-8 point bounce in the polls and put pressure on the Democrats to match or do better. That is hard to believe seeing that it is going to be a negative anti-Romney Convention, far from the Hope & Change” of 2008. Also, the August 2012 unemployment numbers are due out the Friday following the DNC Convention.

Romney Gets 5% Bounce in Wilson Perkins Allen Opinion Research Poll in 9 Battle Ground States

One Day RNC Romney Bounce …

One day after the beginning of the Republican National Convention and it appears that Mitt Romney has received a convention bounce. Romney received a 5 point bounce in his favorable rating according to data presented at a Wednesday breakfast sponsored by The Hill at the law offices of Holland & Knight.

Romney had a 43-percent favorable and 44-percent unfavorable rating in nine battleground states heading into the convention, according to an average compiled by Real Clear Politics.

A survey conducted by Wilson Perkins Allen Opinion Research in nine battle ground states Tuesday evening found Romney’s favorable rating among likely voters had jumped to 48 percent. His unfavorable rating dipped to 39.

Wilson said the polling data indicated Romney’s image has improved after a day of action at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s speech had the biggest impact of the convention so far, and was more than twice as popular as Ann Romney’s remarks on Tuesday, according to the poll.

Twelve percent of respondents rated Christie’s speech as their favorite, compared to five percent who favored Romney’s, according to the poll.

What would one expect but a bump when the Ann Romney and Chris Christie speeches drew 23 million viewers.It was not just Ann and Christie, the GOP governors were awesome last night and Mia Love became an over night Republican rack star.

An estimated 22.3 million people tuned in to watch the first full night of the GOP convention last night, according to Nielsen, the ratings company. That was an increase of 800,000 viewers on the same night of coverage four years ago in St. Paul, Nielsen said.

It just shows how wrong and skewed the liberal media is as the Politico reported that Chris Cristie’s speech was a flop. Really? Sorry Politico, you have no idea what you are talking about. I am sorry if it was not a typical Christie town hall type meeting where he is screaming at the media or calling someone an idiot. The Keynote speech was intended to speak to the Independents. Screaming and brow beating Obama, who Christie never once mentioned his name, would have accomplished nothing. we know Obama is a failure, Christie’s job was to convince Indies why they should vote for Mitt Romney.

There is no mistaking what a successful keynote speech for Chris Christie would have looked and sounded like. There would have been an electric reaction from the crowd in the convention hall. It would have been followed by waves of effusive media commentary about how people had just heard the future of the Republican Party.

Judged by these standards, there is also no mistaking what the New Jersey governor delivered instead: A prime-time belly-flop, one that notably failed to clear either of those two high bars

How Small of Obama on the RNC, ‘It should be a pretty entertaining show’ … As the GOP Governors Beat Obama Up with Barack’s “You Did Not Build It” Comment and Wowed the Crowd

Barack Obama, Lost in smallness yet again, add in some snark and a dash of sarcasm as he commented on the RNC, ‘It should be a pretty entertaining show’. Just how petty could this president get?

Dear Mr. President, it may have been truthfully entertaining; however, it was more enlightening, inspiring and invigorating! Let me inform Barack Obama and the Democrats, don’t look now but the GOP has a young, deep, diverse bench.

The GOP trotted out rock star after rock star governors that took Obama’s failed economic polices apart. Governors Nikki Haley (SC), Scott Walker (WI), John Kasich (OH) to name a few took to the stage and politically beat Obama upside his head with his ridiculous and foolish comment to small business owners that “you did not build it”.  Then there was Keynote speaker New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who reminded Obama, “real leaders do not follow polls, real leaders change polls.”

As stated at Hot Air,  “a whole gamut of Republican governors did indeed take to the stage to refute your erroneous “top-down” baloney this evening, in the knowledge that a huge, meddlesome bureaucracy that thinks it knows best and taxes success is the real definition of “top-down.” The GOP governors told the success stories of their own states recoveries that were polar opposites of Obama’s failed bottom up, middle out, government dependent nanny state agenda.

Ohio Gov. Kasich like I have never heard hims before, “We need a new partner in Washington. This relationship is just not working”

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker got some of the biggest applause of the night … Wisconsin now a swing state

Nikki Haley’s RNC Speech 8/28/12, “President Obama. with all due respect, don’t tell me my parents did not build their business.”

We said in South Carolina that if you have to show a picture ID to buy Sudafed, if you have to show a picture ID to set foot on an airplane. Then you should have to show picture ID to protect one of the most valuable, sacred rights in America, the right to vote.”

Governor Chris Christie Speech at Republican National Convention RNC

Transcript can be read HERE.

We need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something.

Believe me, if we can do this in a blue state with a conservative Republican Governor, Washington is out of excuses.

Leadership delivers.

Leadership counts.

Leadership matters.

We have this leader for America.

We have a nominee who will tell us the truth and who will lead with conviction.  And now he has a running mate who will do the same.

We have Governor Mitt Romney and Congressman Paul Ryan, and we must make them our next President and Vice President.

Mitt Romney will tell us the hard truths we need to hear to put us back on the path to growth and create good paying private sector jobs again in America.

Former Democrat Congressman Artur Davis & Man Who Seconded Obama’s Nomination in 2008 Speaks at the 2012 RNC Supporting Mitt Romney

WHAT A DIFFERENCE 4 YEARS MAKES …

In 2008 Rep. Artur Davis (AL-D), the four term Democrat Congressman, seconded the nomination of Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention and served as an Obama campaign co-chairman. However, four years later and too many extreme and far Left policies,Artur Davis has left the Democrat part and is speaking at the 2012 Republican National Convention. Artur Davis asked for a second chance that was the parallel to the theme of his speech, asking to “Let’s Take This Country Back”. The only thing missing was The Who’s music playing in the background, ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’.

There are Americans who voted for the president, but who are searching right now, because they know that their votes didn’t build the country they wanted.

To those Democrats and independents whose minds are open to argument: listen closely to the Democratic Party that will gather in Charlotte and ask yourself if you ever hear your voice in the clamor.

Ask yourself if these Democrats still speak for you.

When they say we have a duty to grow government even when we can’t afford it, does it sound like compassion to you — or recklessness?

Thank you for Welcoming me to where I belong …

The full transcript can be read HERE.

The Democrats’ ads convince me that Governor Romney can’t sing, but his record convinces me he knows how to lead, and I think you know which skill we need more.

Now, America is a land of second chances, and I gather you have room for the estimated 6 million of us who know we got it wrong in 2008 and who want to fix it.

Maybe we should have known that night in Denver that things that begin with plywood Greek columns and artificial smoke typically don’t end well.

Maybe the Hollywood stars and the glamour blinded us a little: you thought it was the glare, some of us thought it was a halo.

But in all seriousness, do you know why so many of us believed? We led with our hearts and our dreams that we could be more inclusive than America had ever been, and no candidate had ever spoken so beautifully.

But dreams meet daybreak: the jobless know what I mean, so do the families who wonder how this Administration could wreck a recovery for three years and counting.

More amazing words from Artur Davis speaking to Independents and open minded Democrats:

To those Democrats and independents whose minds are open to argument: listen closely to the Democratic Party that will gather in Charlotte and ask yourself if you ever hear your voice in the clamor.

Ask yourself if these Democrats still speak for you.

When they say we have a duty to grow government even when we can’t afford it, does it sound like compassion to you — or recklessness?

When you hear the party that glorified Occupy Wall Street blast success; when you hear them minimize the genius of the men and women who make jobs out of nothing, is that what you teach your children about work?

When they tell you America is this unequal place where the powerful trample on the powerless, does that sound like the country your children or your spouse risked their lives for in Iraq or Afghanistan?

Prior to his speech at the RNC, Former Democrat Rep. Artur Davis, one of Barack Obama’s former 2008 campaign co-chairs, explained why he switched parties to CNN’s Wolf Biltzer. For his epiphany, Davis was attacked by the Black Congressional Caucus for leaving the Democrat plantation.

Oh, and by the way MSNBC did not broadcast this speech either.

GOP Utah Candidate for US Congress Mia Love Brings Down the House at RNC Convention Even Though MSNBC Never Showed It

A STAR IS BORN … MIA LOVE!!!

Ann Romney may have won the night and electrified the crowd at the RNC Convention, however, Mia Love was a close, close second. Mia Love, the current Mayor of Saratoga Springs, UT and GOP candidate for U.S. Congress made a splash on the major political scene last night in an inspiring and enthusiastic way. The 36 year old Love is the daughter of Haitian immigrants with $10 and a dream.

Enter Mia Love, the 36-year-old daughter of Haitian immigrants and a Republican congressional candidate in Utah. Should she win, she would be the first-ever black Republican woman to win a seat in Congress.

In a  speech that drew sustained applause at the GOP convention Tuesday night, Ms. Love recounted her parents’ journey to the U.S., saying they arrived with only $10 in their pockets.

She made apparent references to civil-rights icons Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Our story has been told over 200 years, with small steps and giant leaps, from a woman on a bus to a man with a dream,” she said.

“Mr. President I’m here to tell you the American people are awake and we’re not buying what you’re selling in 2012!”

VIDEO Hat Tip: Mediaite:

She hit President Obama for dividing America and failing the nation over the course of his first term. “His policies have failed us. We’re not better off than we were four years ago. And no rhetoric, bumper sticker or Hollywood campaign ad can change that,” Love fired out to the applause of the crowd.

“Mr. President, I’m here to tell you the American people are awake and we’re not buying what you’re selling in 2012,” Love continued to applause.

Love went on to praise the American dream which she called her story and the story of millions of her fellow citizens. “This is the America we know because we built it,” said Love to spontaneous chants of “U.S.A” from the crowd.

However, a sad and disgustingly bias thing happened on the way to this bright, fiery star of the GOP giving her speech … MSNBC decided not to air it. And it was not just Love’s speech they did not show their viewers, they also did not show the speeches of Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black American and  Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American. I am sensing a theme here. MSNBC, the liberal media outlet that is so quick to say that the Republican party is not ethnic enough purposely and willfully with malice and forethought did not air the speeches of Republican minorities. Yea, no media bias there now, is there?

If you were watching MSNBC’s coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Tuesday night, you might believe those assertions, since missing from the coverage was nearly every ethnic minority that spoke during Tuesday’s festivities.

In lieu of airing speeches from former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, a black American; Mia Love, a black candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives from Utah; and Texas senatorial hopeful Ted Cruz, a Latino American, MSNBC opted to show commentary anchored by Rachel Maddow from Rev. Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes and Steve Schmidt.

Sorry, MSNBC is not a media outlet. It is nothing more than a race-baiting, propaganda arm of the Democrat party and namely Barack Obama. Although there is a part of me that is not surprised, another part of me thinks they have sunk to a new low. You should be ashamed of yourself.
