I am trying to get a theme going across blogs, facebook and twitter. Post your own "dear Obama" message warning him that the Muslim Brotherhood is doing some trivial thing democrats waste time accusing Republicans or the Tea Party of doing. Here are some I've already thought up:
Dear President Obama: the Muslim Brotherhood does not provide women with free contraception. Please send Sandra Fluke to negotiate.
Dear President Obama: the Muslim Brotherhood has over a billion dollars of taxpayer money, and some of it might be invested in a Swiss bank. You should check that out while you are investigating Mitt Romney's tax returns.
Dear President Obama: I heard the Muslim Brotherhood might require members to have a photo ID. You should look into that.
Dear President Obama: children of the Muslim Brotherhood are eating more and more high fructose corn syrup. Please, think of the children!
Dear President Obama: I hear the Muslim Brotherhood is bitterly clinging to guns and religion. You may want Eric Holder to look into that.
Dear President Obama: I hear the Muslim Brotherhood may be supporting a War on Women. How about cutting their funding and donating it to breast cancer research instead?
Dear President Obama: I think the Muslim Brotherhood may not have all their tires properly inflated. They may be contributing to global warming. Please look into this!
Dear President Obama: I don't think the Muslim Brotherhood has enough Latino members. Maybe you should ask your Diversity Czar to check into that?
Dear President Obama, I think that some members of the Muslim Brotherhood actually believe in "legitimate rape." Please check into that.
Dear President Obama: I saw your allies, if that's what you think they are today, in the Muslim Brotherhood driving large, gas guzzling SUVs. Maybe you should buy them Chevy Volts instead!
That's enough to get you started. Share these, post your own to blogs, facebook and twitter, make them go viral!
Today is NATIONAL EMPTY CHAIR DAY!
I met a traveler from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is OBAMANDIAS, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
So last night, FOX News token liberal commenter Juan Williams attacked Ann Romney, calling her just a "corporate wife" and implying she can't possibly relate to real women. I guess he thinks she can't be a First Lady. But what about the ultimate liberal ideal of the White House, the ideal President and First Lady, what about Camelot? Let's compare and contrast, shall we?
Went to BYU and finished her education at Harvard - while living in a basement and raising a son as her husband finished graduate school. Taught Sunday School. Active in the PTA and League of Women Voters. Survivor of breast cancer. Continues to suffer from multiple sclerosis, but still manages to campaign for husband despite this summer's relapse. Director of teen assistance charity Best Friends, United Way volunteer, and Director of Massachusetts Faith Based Initiatives. Full time mother of five. And yes, stood by and supported her husband as he made his own way in business. Guilty.
Born into wealth and priviledge. Raised by oil money. Well known equestrienne. Named "debutante of the year" at her "coming out." Storybook wedding named "social event of the season." Best known for her fashion sense and Chanel dresses. After her husband's death, married a billionaire.
This is not meant to denigrate Jackie. I am sure she was a charming woman and loving wife and mother. But rather, this is to show that Ann Romney shares many qualities of Jackie, but also grew up much more humbly and did far more as a wife and mother, including her own selfless accomplishments in education, political, and charitable work. Ann Romney has far more in common with working moms and average women than Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis ever had. But to a liberal like Juan, Ann Romney is just a corporate wife - while Jackie remains the liberal icon, the ideal First Lady.
I just don't understand the liberal mindset. They are simply not like us.
Folks, this here is what we call a "tipping point."
Yes, that is the actual cover of Newsweek - NEWSWEEK! - that hits stands tomorrow. You can read it online here.
This marks the first time I can think of that a major establishment news source has printed anything remotely like this - even though millions of readers and viewers agree. The mainstream press has been completely in the tank for Obama - and suffering nightmarish declines in ratings and readership as more and more regular people recognize the partisan cheerleading for what it is and tune out.
It starts with Newsweek. This will be a big selling issue. And now that the dam has started to crack, other news media sources will start to publish their own hit pieces on Obama, in order to keep up and remain relevant. Thanks to Newsweek, now other sources can run critical pieces without sticking their necks out to be first. And this comes on the eve of the Republican National Convention, which will provide plenty of fodder.
Momentum has shifted - big time. Write this day down in your history books. This is the moment that Obama's fate became sealed. He will lose. Now the question is no longer "will Obama get re-elected?", because he won't. Instead, the question becomes "how big a victory will the Republicans have?"
Well, there you have it:
As you can see from my earlier post, I was wrong. Romney, however, was right. Ryan is an unbelievably great candidate. In my earlier prediction, I didn't consider Ryan simply because I didn't believe Romney would be bold enough to choose him. I am glad to be wrong!
Ryan is the best possible choice for transforming government. I don't just mean reforming. I mean TRANSFORMING. Government has grown so much and is so far from what the Founders intended, mere reformation is not enough.
Ryan is a man of policy and ideas, not simply someone who fills in important boxes on a checksheet. I was afraid Romney would bow to pressure from certain demographics, and think he had to choose a running mate in order to appeal to "the Hispanics" or "the women" or "the evangelicals" or "the South" or "Ohio." Nope. Romney chose a man based on principles of policy and ideas. This signals two important things:
1) Romney is a man who will govern according to the principles of policy and ideas, and,
2) Romney is confident he can win with these principles, instead of needing to rely on "the Hispanics" or "the women" or "the evangelicals" or "the South" or "Ohio."
In other words, this choice exudes both principle and confidence in principle.
This is a good day for America. A VERY good day. Up until now, I was only hopeful that Romney could beat Obama because people dislike Obama more, and then Romney would simply not be as bad. Now, I am hopeful Romney and Ryan can beat beat Obama and Biden because America WANTS Romney and Ryan, and that together they will repair our nation.
