Hurricane Sandy victim feels used by Obama

Remember how after mega storm Sandy had devastated the East coast, Obama and New Jersey governor Chris Christie, on Oct. 31, 2012, made a big show of touring the storm-damaged areas?
Obama made this promise to New Jersey: “We are here for you, and we will not forget, we will follow up … until you rebuild. We will not quit until this is done. … We are not going to tolerate red tape.”
That was when RINO Chris Christie fell madly in love with the POS, mere days before the 2012 presidential election, although Christie had delivered a speech introducing (and presumably supporting) Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention.
In Brigantine, N.J., there was a photo-op moment when Obama hugged a storm victim, Donna Vanzant, the owner of North Point Marina that was wiped out by the storm. Official Chief White House Photographer Pete Souza captured the hug in this photo, which was posted on the White House website:

Jim Hoft writes for Gateway Pundit, Nov. 27, 2012, that at the time Obama had promised to get help for Vanzant. But after nearly a month, Vanzant hasn’t received any help. She now feels Obama’s visit and promise were all a show, devoid of substance.

I was very excited and felt warm by the embrace thinking this is really going to happen. I’m going to get the help I need because he promised that. I’ve gotten no help. I’ve gotten nothing but ‘No, you’re not covered for this. No, you’re not covered for that.”


Welcome to the Obama’s Suckas Club, Vanzant!
Meanwhile, NBC4 New York reports that a shocking 800 apartment buildings in New York City are still without heat or power a month after Sandy.

My choice for “Best Empty Chair” award

If there is a “Best Empty Chair” award, this gets my vote! 😀

H/t ObamaReleaseYourRecords

Clint Eastwood told Paul Miller of The Carmel Pine Cone (Eastwood lives in Carmel, CA, and is the scenic town’s former mayor) that the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to.

Eastwood said the POS ” is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people. Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle. I had three points I wanted to make. That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job.”

Romney’s campaign aides had asked for details about what Eastwood would say to the convention, but the actor told them “You can’t do that [vetting] with me, because I don’t know what I’m going to say.”

He hates using a teleprompter, so it was settled in his mind that when he spoke to the 10,000 people in the convention hall, and the millions more watching on television, he would do it extemporaneously. “It was supposed to be a contrast with all the scripted speeches, because I’m Joe Citizen,” Eastwood said. “I’m a movie maker, but I have the same feelings as the average guy out there.”

“I got to the convention site just 15 or 20 minutes before I was scheduled to go on.” Eastwood was taken backstage to wait for his cue. And that was when inspiration struck.

“There was a stool there, and some fella kept asking me if I wanted to sit down. When I saw the stool sitting there, it gave me the idea. I’ll just put the stool out there and I’ll talk to Mr. Obama and ask him why he didn’t keep all of the promises he made to everybody.”

DNC hotels infested with bedbugs

First, fierce storms washed away the right arm of that hideous 16-ft sand sculpture of the POS.

Then, worried about filling the seats at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, they bussed in people from black churches in South Carolina, and some 100 students from Duke University to fill the empty seats. Thousands of convention tickets have been given away as freebies.

Now, it’s the invasion of the bedbugs.

David Hill reports from Charlotte, NC, for The Washington Times, Sept. 3, 2012, that bedbugs are an increasing concern at DNC hotels.

The blood-sucking insects have made a resurgence in recent years, including reports of them at nine of the hotels being used for Democrats’ nominating convention this week in Charlotte.

A search of BedBugRegistry.com brings up more than 30 Charlotte-area hotels where visitors have reported bedbugs, including nine hotels that will host at least 10 of the state delegations attending this week’s convention.

Some of the hotels — such as the DoubleTree by Hilton Charlotte Airport hotel, which will host the Connecticut delegation — have had a single report more than a year ago. But the Drury Inn & Suites Northlake, which will house Ohio delegates, had a report from an anonymous Internet user claiming there were “numerous bugs” during a stay in April.

The Charlotte-Center City Holiday Inn, which will welcome the Illinois delegation, has been reported three times since March by Web users whose complaints included finding bugs “in clear sight” and ending up “covered in bites” after a one-night stay.

Of the hotels expected to host convention delegates, the most complaints were aimed at the Charlotte Marriott City Center, where five reports have been posted since July 2011. Visitors reported finding bites days after their stays, and at least two said they ended up bringing bugs home. Another said the hotel refused to provide reimbursement for a laundry bill after the visitor had to dry-clean clothes.

Hotels contacted by The Washington Times about bedbug reports either referred calls to their corporate headquarters or didn’t return messages.

A study released this March by pest control company Orkin rated Charlotte as having the 33rd-most bedbug reports of any city in 2011. The list was topped by Cincinnati, Chicago and Detroit. By contrast, the GOP’s choice for its convention last week, Tampa, Fla., didn’t make the list of the 50 most-infested cities.

Jung W. Kim, environmental senior specialist for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, said upon checking into a hotel, guests should inspect their mattress, box spring and the back of their headboard for bedbug fecal matter in the form of tiny black dots. Guests should request a new room if they suspect bedbugs, and could take other steps such as keeping their luggage in the bathroom or putting washable items in the dryer immediately after returning home.

“You may get bites, but you’re not going to bring any bedbugs to your home,” he said. “As long as you don’t bring bedbugs to your home, you should be fine.”

Mitt Romney, a man who believes in America

Last night, speaking from his heart with humility and conviction, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney reminded us that the America we once knew and still love is not lost.

Tears streamed down my face as I watched and listened to his faith in and appeal to the best in Americans. The hope that had died in me these last  four years leapt anew, revived by Romney’s confidence that we can remake and rebuild our beloved country for our children and grandchildren to inherit.

At the end of his speech, Romney confirmed his commitment to the sanctity of human life and, with sincerity, invoked the Creator God and called for His blessing.

Even if someone other than Romney was your candidate of choice in the GOP primaries, one thing is clear:

Both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan truly, sincerely, dearly love America.

All rancor aside, I do not believe that Barack Obama loves America. In every way, he and the bitter ideologues of the Left show that they loathe this country and everything America stands for. Good grief, Obama’s Department of Homeland Security identifies Americans who love liberty as “domestic terrorists”!

For Obama and the Left, the Founding Fathers are domestic terrorists.

One of the measures of a good leader is his/her ability to choose good people for the job. Romney already has demonstrated that with his selection of Paul Ryan, reputed to be “the smartest man in Congress,” as his VP running-mate; of Senator Marco Rubio to introduce him; and of Clint Eastwood to deliver a funny but the sharpest rebuke to the squatter in the White House.

If you didn’t catch Romney’s acceptance speech to be the GOP’s 2012 nominee for the President of the United States of America, here it is!
The full transcript of the speech follows.

On November 6th, the choice before us cannot be clearer or starker.

Vote for Jobs! Vote for Liberty! Vote for America!

Transcript of Mitt Romney’s speech at the 2012 RNC

FoxNews.com – August 30, 2012

Thank you.  Mr. Chairman, and delegates, I accept your nomination for president of the United States. I do so with humility, deeply moved by the trust you’ve placed in me.  It’s a great honor.  It’s an even greater responsibility.  I ask you to walk together to a better future.

By my side I have chosen a man with a big heart from a small town. He represents the best of America.  A man who will always make us very proud.  My friend and America’s next vice-president, Paul Ryan.
In the days ahead, you will get to know Paul and Janna better. But, last night America got to see what I saw in Paul Ryan, a strong and caring leader who is down to earth and confidence in the challenge this moment demands.  I love the way he lights up around his kids. And how he’s not embarrassed to show the world how much he loves his mom. But Paul, I still like the playlist on my Ipod better than yours.

Four years ago, I know that many Americans felt a fresh excitement about the possibilities of a new president.  That choice was not the choice of our party, but Americans always come together after elections.  We’re a good and generous people, and we are united by so much more than what divides us.

When that election was over, when the yard signs came down and the television commercials finally came off the air, Americans were eager to go back to work, to live our lives the way Americans always have, optimistic and positive and confident in the future. That very optimism is uniquely American.  It’s what brought us to America.  We’re a nation of immigrants, we’re the children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the ones who wanted a better life.  The driven ones.  The ones who woke up at night, hearing that voice telling them that life in a place called America could be better.

They came, not just in pursuit of the riches of this world, but for the richness of this life.  Freedom, freedom of religion, freedom to speak their mind, freedom to build a life and, yes, freedom to build a business with their own hands.

This is the essence of the American experience.  We Americans have always felt a special kinship with the future. When every new wave of immigrants looked up and saw the Statue of Liberty, or knelt down and kissed the shores of freedom, just 90 miles from Castro’s tyranny, these new Americans sure had many questions, but none doubted that here in America they could build a better life.  That in America, their children would be blessed more than they.

But, today, four years from the excitement of that last election, for the first time the majority of Americans now doubt that our children will have a better future.  That is not what we were promised.

Every family in America wanted this to be a time when they could get a little ahead, put aside a little more for college, do more for the elderly mom that’s now living alone.  Or give a little more to their church or their charity.  Every small business wants to have this be their best year ever, when they could hire more, do more for those who had stuck with them through hard times.  Open a new store, sponsor that little league team.   Every new college graduate thought they’d have a good job by now. A place for their own.  They could start paying back some of their loans and build for the future.  This is what our nation was supposed to start paying down the national debt, and rolling back massive deficits.  This was the hope and change America voted for.  It is not just what we wanted, it is not just what we expected, it is what Americans deserved.

You deserved it because you worked harder than ever before during these years.  You deserved it because, when it cost more to fill up your car, you cut out moving lights, and put in longer hours.  Or when you lost that job that paid $22.50 an hour, benefits, you took two jobs at $9 an hour. You deserve it because your family depended on you.  And you did it because you are an American, and you don’t quit.  You did it because that was because it was because you had to do. The driving home late from that second job, or standing there and watching the gas pump hit $50 and still going.  When the realtor told you that to sell your house you’d have to take a big loss on your house.  In those moments, you knew that this just was not right.  But what could you do except work harder, do with less, try to stay optimistic, hug your kids a little longer, maybe spend more time praying tomorrow would be a better day.

I wish President Obama had succeeded, because I want America to succeed. But his promises gave way to disappointment and division. This isn’t something we have to accept.  Now is the moment when we can do something.  And with your help, we will do something.

Now is the moment where we can stand up and say, “I am an American, I make my destiny, we deserve better, my children deserve better, my family deserves better, my country deserves better.”

So here we stand.  Americans have a choice, a decision.  To make that choice, you need to know more about me and where I’d lead at our country.  I was born in the middle of the century, in the middle of the country, the classic baby boomer.  It was a time when Americans were returning from war and eager to work.

To be an American was to assume that all things were possible.  When President Kennedy challenged Americans to go to the moon, the challenge was not whether we would get there, it was only when we’d get there. The soles of Neil Armstrong’s on the moon made permanent impressions on our souls. And I watched those steps together on her parents sofa. Like all American is, we went to bed at night knowing we lived in the greatest country in the history of the world.

God bless Neil Armstrong.

Tonight, that American flag is still there on the Moon. and I don’t doubt for a second that Neil Armstrong’s spirit is still with us.  That unique blend of optimism, humility, and the utter confidence that, when the world needs someone to do that, you need an American.

My dad had been born in Mexico.  And his family had to leave during the Mexican revolution.  I grew up with stories of his family being fed by the U.S. government as war refugees. My dad never made it through college, and he apprenticed as a and plaster carpenter.  He had big dreams.  He convinced my mom, a beautiful young actress, to give up Hollywood to marry him. And moved to Detroit. He led a great automobile company and became governor of the great state of Michigan.

We were — we were Mormons .  And growing up in Michigan, that might have seemed unusual or out of place, but I do not remember it that way. My friends cared more about what sports teams we followed that what church went to.

My mom and dad gave their kids the greatest gift of all. The gift of unconditional love.  They cared deeply about who we would be and much less about what we would do.  Unconditional love is a gift that Ann and I have tried to to pass on to our sons and now to our children. All the laws and legislation is in the world will never heal the world like the loving hearts and arms of loving mothers and fathers. You know, if every child could go to sleep … in the love of their family and God’s love, this world would be a far more gentle place.

My mom and dad were married for 64 years.  And if you wondered what their secret was, you could have asked the local florist. Because every day, dad gave mom a Rose, which he put on the bedside table.  That is how she found that the day my father died. She went looking for him because, that morning, there was no rose.

My mom and dad were two partners.  A life lesson that shaped me by everyday example.  When my mom ran for the Senate, my dad was there for her every step of the way.  I can still see her as saying in her beautiful voice, “Why should women have any less safe than men about the great decisions facing our nation? — great decisions facing our nation?”

Don’t you wish you could have been here at this convention and heard leaders like Governor Mary Fallin, Governor Nikki Haley, Governor Susana Martinez, Senator Kay Alieanos (ph), Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice? As governor of Massachusetts, I chose a woman lieutenant governor, a woman chief of staff.  Half of my cabinet and senior officials were women.  And in business, and mentored and supported great women leaders who went on to run great companies.

I grew up in Detroit, in love with cars.  And wanted to be a car guy like my dad.  But, by the time I was out of school I realized that I had to go out on my own.  That if I stayed around Michigan in the same business I’d never really now if I was getting a break because of my dad.  I wanted to go someplace new and prove myself.

Those weren’t the easiest of days.  Many long hours, and weekends working.  Five young sons who seemed to have a need to reenact a different world war every night. But if you ask Ann and I, what we’d give to break up just one more fight between the boys, or wake up in the morning and discover a pile of kids asleep in a room — well every mom and dad knows the answer to that.

Those days were the tough days on Ann, particularly.  She was heroic through it all.  Five boys with our families a long way away.  I had to travel a lot for my job then, and I’d call and try to offer support.  But  every mom knows that that does not help did the homework done or get the kids out the door to school.  I knew that her job as a mom was harder than mine.  I knew without question that her job as a mom was a lot more important than mine. And as America saw Tuesday night, Ann would have succeed at anything she wanted to do.

Like a lot of families in a new place with no family, we found kinship with a wide circle of friends through our church. When we were new to the community, it was welcoming, and as the years went by, it was a joy to help others who had just moved into town or just joined our church. We had remarkably vibrant endeavors congregations from all walks of life, and many who were new to America.  We prayed together, our kids played together, and we always stood ready to help each other out in different ways.

That’s how it is in America.  We look to our communities, our faiths, our families, for our joy and support, in good times and bad.  It’s both how we live our lives and why we live our lives.  The strength and power and goodness of America has always been based on the strength and power and goodness of our communities, our families, and our faiths.

That’s the bedrock of what makes America America.  In our best days, we can feel the vibrancy of America’s communities, large and small.  It’s when we see that new business opening up downtown.  It’s when we go to work in the morning and see everybody else in the block doing the same thing to read when our son or daughter calls from college to talk about which job offer they should take, and you try not to choke up when you hear that the one they like best is not too far from home. It’s that good feeling when you have more time to volunteer to coach for you kids soccer team or help out on school trips.

For too many Americans, those kind of good days are harder to come by.  How many days have you woken up feeling that something really special was happening in America?  Many of you thought the way on election day four years ago.  Hope and change had a powerful appeal.  But tonight I would ask a simple question: if you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t feel that way now, that he is President Obama? You know there is something wrong with the kind of job he has done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.

The president has not disappointed you because he wanted to.  The president has disappointed America because he hasn’t lead America in the right direction.  He took office without the basic qualification that most Americans have, and one that was essential to the task at hand.  He had almost no experience working in a business.  Jobs to him are about government.

I learned the real lessons from how America works from experience.  When I was 37, I helped to start a small company. My partners and I had been working for a company that was in the business of helping other businesses.  So some of us have the idea that, if we really believe our advice was helping companies, we should invest in companies. We should bet on ourselves and our advice.  So we started a new business called Bain Capital.  The only problem was, while we believed in ourselves, not many other people did.  We were young and had never done this before, and We almost did not get off the ground. In those days, sometimes I wondered if I had made a really big mistake. By the way, I thought about asking my church’s pension fund to invest, but I didm’t. I figured it was bad enough that I might lose my investors’ money, but I did not want to go to hell, too. Shows what I know.  Another of my partners got the Episcopal church Pension Fund to invest.  And today there are a lot of happy retired priests who should thank him.

That business we started with 10 people has now grown into a great American success story.  Some of the companies we helped start are names you know you’ve have heard from tonight.  An office company called Staples, where I’m pleased to see the Obama campaign has been shopping. The Sports Authority, which of course became a favorite of my boys.  We helped start an early childhood learning company called Bright Horizons that First Lady Michelle Obama rightly praised.  And at a time when nobody thought we’d ever see a new steel mill built in America, we took a chance and build one in the cornfield in Indiana. Today, Steel Dynamics is one of the largest steel producers in the United States.

These are American success stories. And yet the centerpiece of the president’s entire reelection campaign is attacking success.  Is it any wonder that someone who attacks success has led the worst economic recovery since the Great Depression? In America, we celebrate success.  We don’t apologize for success.

Now we weren’t always successful at Bain, but no one ever is in the real world of business.  That’s what this president does not seem to understand.  Business and growing jobs is about taking risk, sometimes failing, sometimes succeeding, but always striving.  It’s about dreams.  Usually it doesn’t work out exactly as you might have imagined.  Steve Jobs was fired at Apple, and then he came back and changed the world.  It’s the genius of the American free enterprise system to harness the extraordinary creativity, and talent and industry of the American people with a system that’s dedicated to creating tomorrow’s prosperity, not trying to redistribute today’s.

That’s why every president since the Great Depression who came before the American people asking for a second term could look back at the last four years and say with satisfaction, “You’re are better off than you were four years ago.”  Except Jimmy Carter. And except this president.

This president can ask us to be patient.  This president can tell us it was someone else’s fault.  This president can tell us that the next four years will get it right.  But this president cannot tell us that you’re better off today than when he took office.

America has been patient. Americans have supported this president in good faith, but today the time has come the time to turn the page.  Today the time has come for us to put the disappointments of the last four years behind us, to put aside the divisiveness and the recriminations, to forget about what might have been, and to look ahead to what can be.  Now is the time to restore the promise of America.

Many Americans have given up on this president, but they haven’t ever thought of giving up, not on themselves, not on each other, and not on America. What is needed in our country is not complicated or profound.  It doesn’t take a special government commission to tell us what America needs. What America needs is jobs, lots of jobs.

In the richest country in the history of the world, this Obama economy has crushed the middle class.  Family income has fallen by $4,000 , but health insurance premiums are higher. Food prices are higher.  Utility bills are higher, and gasoline prices, they’ve doubled.  Today more Americans wake up in poverty than ever before. Nearly one out of six Americans is living in poverty.  Look around you — these aren’t strangers. These are our brothers and sisters, our fellow Americans.  His policies have not helped create jobs.  They’ve depressed them, and this I can tell you about where President Obama would take America.  His plan to put taxes on small businesses won’t not add jobs.  It will eliminate them. His assault on coal and gas and oil will send energy and manufacturing jobs to China. His trillion dollar cuts to our military will eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs and also put our security at greater risk. His $716 billion cut to Medicare to finance Obamacare will hurt today’s seniors and depress innovation in jobs and medicines.  And his trillion dollar deficits, they slow our economy, restrain employment, and cause wages to stall.  To the majority of Americans who now believe the future will not be better than the past, I can guarantee you this — if Barack Obama is reelected, you will be right.

I am running for president to help create a better future, a future where everyone who wants a job can find a job, where no senior fears for the security of their retirement, an America where every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon, and unlike the president, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs.

Paul Ryan and I have five steps.  First, by 2020, North America will be an energy independent by taking invented of our oil, are coal, our gas, our nuclear, and renewables.

Second, we will give our fellow citizens the skills they need for the jobs of today and the careers of tomorrow.  When it comes to the school your child will attend, every parent should have a choice, and every child should have a chance.

Third, we will make trade work for America by forging new trade agreements, and when nations cheat in trade, there will be unmistakable consequences.

And fourth, to assure every entrepreneur and every job creator that their investments in America will not vanish, as have those in Greece.  We will cut the deficit and put America on track to a balanced budget.

And fifth, we will champion small businesses, America’s engine of job growth.  That means reducing taxes on business, not raising them.  It means simplifying and modernizing the regulations that hurt small businesses the most, and it means we must rein in skyrocketing cost of health care by repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Today women are more likely than men to start of business. They need a president who respect and understand what they do. And let me make this clear.  Unlike President Obama, I will not raise taxes on the middle class of America.

As president, I’ll respect the sanctity of life. I’ll honor the institution of marriage. And I will guarantee America’s first liberty, the freedom of religion.

President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans. And to heal the planet. My promises to help you and your family.

I will begin my presidency with the jobs tour.  President Obama began his with an apology from America he said had dictated to other nations.  No, Mr. President America has feed other nations from dictators.

Every American was relieved the day President Obama I gave the order and SEAL Team 6 took out Osama Bin Laden. On another front, every American is less secure today because he has failed to slow Iran’s nuclear threat.  In his first TV interview as president, he said we should talk to Iran. We are still talking, and Iran’s centrifuges are still spinning. President Obama has thrown allies like Israel under the bus even as he has relaxed sanctions on Castor’s Cuba.  He abandoned our friends in Poland by walking away from missile defense commitments. But he’s eager to give Russia’s president Putin the flexibility he desires after the election.

Under my presidency our friends will see more loyalty and Mr. Putin will see a little less flexibility and more backbone. We will honor America’s Democratic ideals because a free world is a more peaceful world.  This is the bipartisan foreign legacy of Truman and Reagan, and under presidency we will return to it once again.

You might have asked yourselves if these last years were really the America we want, the America that was won for us by the greatest generation.  Does the America we want borrow a trillion dollars from China? Does it fail to find the jobs that are needed for 23 million and for half the kids graduating from college? Are those schools lagging behind the rest of the develolped world? And does America that we want succumb to resentment and division among Americans?

The America we all know has been a story of many becoming one. United to preserve liberty, uniting to build the greatest the economy in the world, uniting to save the world from unspeakable darkness. Everywhere I go there are monuments and now for those who have given their lives for America.  There is no mention of their race, their party affiliation, or what they did for a living. They lived and died under a single flag, fighting for a single purpose.  They’ve pledged allegiance to the United States of America. Taht America, that united America can unleash an economy that will put Americans back to work, that will once again lead the world with innovation and productivity, and will restore every father and mother’s confidence that their children’s future is brighter even than the past.  That American, that united America will preserve a military that’s so strong no nation will ever dare to test it.

That America, that America, that united America will of uphold the constitution of rights that were endowed by our creator and codified in our Constitution. That united America will care for the poor and sick, will honor and respect the elderly and will giving a helping hand to those in need.  That America is the best within each of us. That America we want for our children.

If I am elected president of these United States I will work with all my energy and soul to restore that America, to lift our eyes to a better future. That future is our destiny. That future is out there. It is waiting for us.  Our children deserve it.  Our nation depends on it.  The peace and freedom of  the world require it.  And with your help we will deliver it. Let us the begin that future for Amreica tonight.

Thank you so very much.  May God bless you! May God bless the American people, and may God bless the United States of America!

The U.S. senator whom Obama contemptuously calls “a boy”

At the Republican National Convention last night, son of humble Cuban immigrants Marco Rubio, 41, newly elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, was given the distinct honor of introducing former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney as the GOP’s 2012 nominee to the presidency of the United States of America.

Tears were streaming down my face as Rubio described and paid homage to his hardworking blue-collar parents and their belief that America held the promise of a better life for their children. I, too, am an immigrant and a naturalized U.S. citizen who came to this country with not a penny. I, too, worked in menial jobs to put myself through college — washing dishes, waitressing in a tenderloin restaurant, selling Avon door-to-door, working in the fast food A&W. I, too, with a Ph.D. and a Full Professorship (emerita), am a living testimony to the American dream.

If you didn’t watch Rubio’s speech, here’s your chance! As you watch and listen to Rubio, ask yourself this question:

Does Marco Rubio look and behave like “a boy” to you?

I’ll explain the question below the video.

So, did you watch Rubio’s speech?

Do you think this impressive, articulate, and intelligent man is “a boy”?

But that’s exactly what Barack Obama calls Marco Rubio.

Glenn Thrust writes for Politico, Aug. 20, 2012, that Obama’s Last Stand, an e-book published last Monday in a collaboration between Politico and Random House, reports that Obama has a trait that has never been revealed to the American people. The book is the culmination of a two-month reporting project that included interviews with two dozen current and former members of Obama’s team

In Thrust’s words, Obama has a “trash-talking competitiveness, a trait that has defined him since his days on the court as a basketball-obsessed teenager in Hawaii.”

According to the e-book, one night last February, Obama spotted a woman he knew was close to Sen. Marco Rubio in a Florida hotel lobby. This is what Obama, a sitting President of the United States, said to the woman:

“Is your boy going to go for [vice president]?”

The woman declined to answer.

Well,” Obama said, chuckling, according to a person who witnessed the encounter:

“Tell your boy to watch it. He might get his ass kicked.”

Born in 1961, Obama is 51 years old. Marco Rubio was born in 1971 and at age 41 is 10 years younger — hardly “a boy”. If anyone were to call Obama “a boy,” the cries of “RAAAAACISM” would be deafening.

Now you know why I call him a Piece of Sh*t.

NJ Gov. Chris Christie’s rousing speech at 2012 RNC

New Jersey’s bold bulldog of a governor, Chris Christie, delivered the keynote speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, FL, last night.

The MSM snipers and carpers are trying to make a brouhaha out of Christie mentioning Mitt Romney 17 minutes into the speech. So what?

Here are Christie’s key points, from my memory watching it last night and paraphrased in my words:

  • Always seek and tell the truth.
  • It’s better to be respected, than to be loved.
  • Politicians pander to the people for selfish reasons (votes) and because they want to be “loved.”
  • Real leaders don’t pander and tell the American people what we want to hear. Real leaders tell the truth about our nation’s real problems. Mitt Romney is this leader who will speak truth to us on Thursday.
  • Americans are a people who take charge of our lives and our future. We are not victims, nor are we solely selfish.
  • Our generation is now called to tackle huge problems, from which we will not shirk, because we do not want our children and grandchildren to live in an America in decline.
  • If we meet this challenge, the American Century will not be consigned to the past century. The 21st century will also be an American Century.
