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


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


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.

Ann Romney Wins the Night … Lights Up the RNC with a Tremendous Speech … “Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point” (VIDEO)


Tonight I want to talk to you from my heart about our hearts.

“I want to talk not about what divides us, but what holds us together as an American family. I want to talk to you tonight about that one great thing that unites us, that one thing that brings us our greatest joy when times are good, and the deepest solace in our dark hours.

“Tonight I want to talk to you about love. …

Ann Romney, the wife of GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, hit her speech out of the park and introduced Mitt to America as a warm loving husband who was a problem solver and who “has helped lift up others.” Ann praised the hard work of her husband at every job he has had and said to America that Mitt will work hard for America to turn the US around and … “THIS MAN  WILL NOT FAIL”, “This man will not let us down”. “This man will lift up America!”

However, one of Ann’s best lines of the night was when she said that “Mitt doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point.”

“This is the man who will wake up every day with the determination to solve the problems that others say can’t be solved, to fix what others say is beyond repair,” she is to say about her husband, according to the excerpts. “This is the man who will work harder than anyone so that we can work a little less hard.”

“I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a ‘storybook marriage,’ ” she is to say. “Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once. And those storybooks never seemed to have chapters called MS or Breast Cancer.”

“I Want To Talk To You About Love” ~ Ann Romney’s RNC Speech 8/28/12

Some excerpts from Ann’s speech:

And I want us to think tonight about the love we all share for those Americans, our brothers and sisters, who are going through difficult times, whose days are never easy, nights are always long, and whose work never seems done.

They are here among us tonight in this hall; they are here in neighborhoods across Tampa and all across America. The parents who lie awake at night side by side, wondering how they’ll be able to pay the mortgage or make the rent; the single dad who’s working extra hours tonight, so that his kids can buy some new clothes to go back to school, can take a school trip or play a sport, so his kids can feel. like the other kids.

And the working moms who love their jobs but would like to work just a little less to spend more time with the kids, but that’s just out of the question with this economy. Or that couple who would like to have another child, but wonder how will they afford it.


But let me say this to every American who is thinking about who should be our next president:

No one will work harder. No one will care more. No one will move heaven and earth like Mitt Romney to make this country a better place to live!

It’s true that Mitt has been successful at each new challenge he has taken on. It amazes me to see his history of success actually being attacked. Are those really the values that made our country great? As a mom of five boys, do we want to raise our children to be afraid of success?

Do we send our children out in the world with the advice, “Try to do… okay?”

Everyone is Speculating Who Is Thursday’s Mystery RNC Speaker? … Sarah Palin, Nancy Reagan?

The media is a buzz as to who Thursday’s mystery speaker at the Republican National Convention might be. Some say Sarah Palin, General David Petraeus or maybe Nancy Reagan. How about VP Ryan’s mom Betty? Could there be a Ron Paul sighting? That would be kind of awesome to have Nancy appear and use her famous line from the 1980′s … Just Say No to Obama.

Republican convention planners appear to have a surprise planned for those tuning in Thursday night.

Buried deep in the convention schedule released Monday is a vague reference to a mystery speaker scheduled for the event’s final evening. “To Be Announced” has a prime speaking slot late in the Thursday program.

Who do you think it might be?

Leftist Moonbat Protester Arrested Outside RNC with Machete, Resisting Arrest with Violence in Tampa, FL

Hey is that a Machete strapped to your leg or are you just glad to see the RNC in town?

As reported at BayNews9, a Leftist protester was arrested outside of the RNC with a machete strapped to his leg. Jason T. Wilson, of Tallahassee, FL was arrested as he walked in the RNC Event Zone carrying a “full size” machete. Because every one needs to be carrying a machete. Wilson was arrested and taken to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on charges of prohibited items in event zone and resisting arrest with violence. Why do I think that this will just be the first of many moonbat arrests over the next couple of days in Tampa?

A Republican National Convention protestor was arrested while he allegedly carried a machete strapped to his leg, according to deputies.

According to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s officials, Jason T. Wilson, of Tallahassee, was arrested as he walked in the RNC Event Zone carrying a “full size” machete.

When deputies approached Wilson, they said he continued to walk away despite orders to stop.

Other anarchist and Leftist actions can be read at the Lonely Conservative.

ABC News:

Police say Wilson of Tallahassee resisted arrest but was subdued and taken to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. He faces charges of carrying a prohibited item in the event zone and resisting arrest.

EXIT QUESTION: Is this what has become of the tingle that ran up Chris Matthews leg?

Tropical Storm Isaac Expected to become Huricane as it Bears Down on Florida and the Gulf Coast

US National Hurricane Center Issues Hurricane Warnings From Louisiana to Florida Panhandle.

Click HERE for current satellite loop.

Tropical Storm ISAAC Public Advisory

Tropical Storm Isaac about to become a hurricane as it crosses the Florida Keys and enters the Gulf of Mexico. As reported at ABC News, Isaac is expected to make landfall somewhere along the Gulf Coast by Tuesday or Wednesday, on the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. However, Isaac does not appear to be as powerful as the devastating Katrina that reeked havoc on New Orleans, Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. Isaac has made the planner of the Republican National Convention cancel the first day of the event on Monday.

Tropical Storm Isaac barely stirred some Florida Keys residents from their fabled nonchalance Sunday, while the Gulf Coast braced for the possibility that the sprawling storm will strengthen into a dangerous hurricane by the time it makes landfall there.

Isaac was expected to cross the Keys by late afternoon, then turn northwest and strike as a Category 2 hurricane somewhere between the New Orleans area to the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

The storm was predicted to pass west of Tampa, the site of the Republican National Convention, but it had already disrupted the schedule there because of the likelihood of heavy rain and strong winds.

Even before reaching hurricane strength, Isaac caused considerable inconvenience, with hundreds of flights canceled at airports in Miami and Fort Lauderdale. There were scattered power outages from Key West to Fort Lauderdale affecting more than 6,000 customers, and flooding occurred in low-lying areas.

Florida Governor Scott Brown says that Florida is preparing for Isaac. The Florida Keys are going to be hot with tropical force wind and rain. Brown stated that he has canceled his plans to attend the Republican National Convention on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to deal with issues for the state of Florida and the potential for Isaac to turn into a hurricane.

RNC Slams Barack Obama for Avoiding White House Press Corps in New Attack Ad

Barack Obama, Lost in Smallness …

One might think that the below ad is a spoof from Saturday Night Live. Sadly, it is not. The RNC has come out with an ad of President Barack Obama for avoiding the White House Press corps. It has been over two months since Obama have taken serious questions during a White House presser, but that has not stopped him from doing some of the most “lost in smallness” interviews ever.

The Republican National Convention has released a scathing new ad, blasting President Obama for seemingly avoiding the White House Press Corps while doing interviews with soft outlets like “People” magazine and “Entertainment Tonight.”

Serious Questions from the RNC

Why would Obama have a presser with the White House Press corps? Instead of being asked about his favorite color, the Obamamessiah might actually be asked questions about the tensions with Iran, the deadliest month in 2012 in Afghanistan for US troops, the escalating gas prices, and of course the big one … where are the jobs?

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to Deliver Key Note Speech at Republican National Convention … Senator Marco Rubio (FL-R) to Introduce Mitt Romney

Sarah Palin may not be speaking at this years Republican National Convention, but don’t miss the sure fire, energetic, engaging and never dull stylings of Chris Christie.  The NJ Gov. is never at a loss for words, this should be truly inspiring and entertaining.

That is correct, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be providing the Keynote speech at the Republican National Convention. This is a fantastic choice as he is sure to bring down the house. Chris Christie is never at a loss for words and is known for saying exactly what he thinks. A quite refreshing manner as compared to the PC and focus group approved talk that has become common place for politicians today. Look for Christie to bring the crowds at the GOP National Convention to their feet and jazz the even to new highs. This is going to be must see TV. Christie stated, he “ill cite his experience as New Jersey governor in demonstrating that “the American people are ready to confront those problems head-on and endure some sacrifice.”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will deliver the keynote address that launches the Republican National Convention in two weeks, telling USA TODAY he plans to make an “emphatic” argument on behalf of GOP approaches and shared sacrifice to face the nation’s biggest challenges.

In an interview Monday, Christie said his 20-minute speech will focus more on making the case for electing Mitt Romney than the one against re-electing President Obama. And he promises the words will be his own: He’s already on the fourth draft of the speech, “grinding away on it” over the past few days since Romney asked him to fill the high-profile role.

Florida US Senator Marco Rubio will be the individual tapped to introduce Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention.

In a showcase role on his party’s biggest stage, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will introduce Mitt Romney for his speech to accept the nomination for president on the last night of the Republican National Convention.

It is an introduction aimed at giving Romney a boost from a rising star in a must-win state, but it will almost certainly further enhance Rubio’s standing, too.

Republican Chairman Reince Priebus Calls Harry Reid a “Dirty Liar” in Response to Dingy Harry’s Tax Accusations (Video)

This weekend on ABC News ‘This Week.’ the Republican Chairman Reince Priebus called Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid a “Dirty Liar”. The comment was made in response to Reid’s shameful and unsubstantiated comments that Mitt Romney had not paid taxes in the last 10 years.  This is what it has come to for Democrats. They cannot run on the number one issue in America, the economy, so they look to divert and distract with nonsense and silliness. Barack Obama cannot run on his record so Democrats must lower themselves and just throw out accusations with no proof. Sadly, they don’t even care to find out whether such accusations are truthful or not. In 2008 Barack Obama ran as the candidate of hope and change and who would change the way business is done in Washington, DC. Four years later, Obama is running one of the most negative campaigns through his campaign, minions and surrogates.

Previously, Romney told Harry Reid that “it’s time to put up or shut up”. I wonder how willing Reid would be to produce his tax returns? Better yet, I wonder how Reid would act and respond if some one said something damning about him through an unnamed and unknown source?
