Here we go

Oh please…oh please…oh please.


Uh oh?


Donate to Mitt Romney here.

I really, really, really want Mitt Romney to win this election.

Mitt Romney knows the difference between a tragedy, and a “bump in the road”:

“Look, the world looks at the events going on. They don’t see these events as bumps in the road. These are lives. This is humanity. This is freedom. Freedom must be on the march. We must stand for freedom. I see these extraordinary aircraft here and know that behind them are men and women who’ve flown them in peace, in times of danger. They fly them to protect us. They fly to make sure the world is a safer place. American leadership is derived from a strong military, which, by the way, is derived from a strong economy, which is derived from strong values and principles. I will strengthen America by restoring the principles that made us the hope of the earth!”

I loved this statement from Mitt Romney; it almost made me want to cry, mostly because it’s so simple, and such a departure from Obama’s posturing and soaring rhetoric. The simplicity of it is poignant: freedom, pride, love. These are the things that should define our humanity.

These are the things that the Obama administration has abandoned.

This Week in “Progressivism”…

From the party of tolerance this week:

1. Called Mia Love a house nig*er
2. Deliberately cut away from *every* minority-given speech at the RNC
3. Accused Ann Romney of faking MS and cancer
4. Accused ME of “playing the pity card” for exposing actual hatred in the form of threats against my body (which resulted in a Facebook de-friending, something I never bother to do)
5. Couldn’t think of anything awful to say about Mitt Romney’s sons, so started speculation that one of them must be gay (which would apparently be a bad thing that we should mock him for?)
6. Sexually degraded Ann Romney and Janna Ryan
7. Lambasted BeBe for singing at the RNC.
8. Played the #FuckRomney hashtag game, which spiraled into yet more hate and death threats
9. #NegroSpotting (I didn’t think we were allowed to say that…)
10. Dressed up like vaginas and accused thousands of people en masse of advocating for rape and degradation.

So, basically, you guys can shut up with your “tolerance” and your “NOH8” now, because if this is what tolerance looks like, I’ll pass.

Has President Obama earned your vote?

Americans for Prosperity rolled out their newest Expressed Advocacy ad on Tuesday:

I love this. I love its direct tone, and I love its decisive message: No. No, Barack Obama has not earned reelection in 2012.

AFP gets it, people. I’ve harped on this before, and I’ll harp on it again, because it bears repeating: elections are not about reaching a demographic, or a target base, or a specific slice of independent voters. Elections are about speaking to people, and that’s exactly why this ad hits home. The people in the ad aren’t actors; they’re very real, very brave voters who stopped “thinking” with their hearts and finally recognized that everything Barack Obama is selling is based 100% in emotion, rhetoric, and “the way it should be.” This sort of breakthrough is huge for 2012; this sort of breakthrough is what every conservative with a voice should be working day and night for.

This is the battle we can win.

DISCLOSE ALL THE THINGS: This ad run cost $7MM for a week, starting on August 15, and is not part of any individual field campaign. The ad will run in Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico.

Insight into the Occupation: CPAC 2012

And so it starts:

Occupy DC plans mayhem for major conservative conference:

The protesters suggested pulling fire alarms in the hotel where the conference will take place, screaming “fire” during conference activities, “glitter-bombing” participants, cutting electrical power, and barricading entrances to the hotel, according to the source, who requested anonymity.

“Speakers will be physically assaulted, not just verbally confronted,” the source told Scribe in an email. Two Occupiers, who the source also identified as members of the New Black Panther Party, “said they would be disappointed if they didn’t get arrested and planned to ‘make it count.’”

The source quoted another protester as saying, “Mitt [Romney] has Secret Service now, but [Newt] Gingrich and [Andrew] Breitbart don’t,” seemingly suggesting that the latter two would not be as heavily guarded.

Protesters planned to conduct most of these activities on Saturday, the last day of the conference, so as not to overlap with the recently announced protests by labor groups on Thursday and Friday. [Emphasis mine]

This is what a challenge looks like. They’re daring us to make the first move. I have no doubt that these people are going to come out in full force and do as much damage as possible, but it’s important to remember who these people are. Occupy DC is not comprised of your typical, smelly “occupiers”; these people are backed extensively by the AFL-CIO, have a ton of funding, and are used to being coddled by the authorities in the District.

I’m not your mother. I’m not going to tell you to not engage these people, because I think you should engage these people: call them out on their hypocrisy (and lack of hygiene.) But keep in mind what the purpose of this statement is: to draw out the conservative grassroots.

Keep this in mind: with every blog post, tweet, and video upload, emphasize the fact that these people aren’t grassroots. These people are 100% in the pockets of the unions, and there isn’t much a union shill won’t do for 15 minutes of fame.
