Who should deliver the GOP response to Obama's speech?
one man's opinion...

Posted on 08/31/2011 6:59:33 PM PDT by ken5050

OK, now that the scheduling issues have been resolved, Obama will address a Joint Session of Congress next Thursday, Sept 8th, not to mention that small segment of Americans NOT watching the opening game of he NFL season. The question before us is..who should be selected to deliver the GOP response?

We're forunate to have several excellent choices. One person, who could do a fine job, won't want the gig. That's Wisconsin's freshman senator, who'll no doubt be watching his Packers instead of a recycled Obama campaign speech.

I don't want Boehner....that would make it seem a personal issue.

Ryan's a possibility..but he may be watching the Packers as well.

Marco Rubio would be a superb choice...if you haven't seen it..just watch his speech last week at the Reagan Library. He's a superb orator, and he will make Obama see like a 5th grade debate society participant.

SC has a few possibilities to offer. Tim Scott ( or is that TOOOOO obvious) or Nikki Haley..any doubts..just watch her speech last Saturday to RedState..the same meeting where Perry announced he's running.

Thoughts?

I’d just run a loop of Obama’s 2010 “jobs” presser and put some graphics on the screen pointing out that things are worse now.

Ridicule is the only way to crush a narcissist, and this clown Obama is what we used to call “all hat, no cattle” in Montana when I grew up there.

I suggest either a note taped to a brick thrown through the White Hut,

Or 10,000 armed citizens on the front steps delivering the People’s response to all of Obama’s speeches.

Joe Wilson.

Just make sure he ends the speech with “And that’s no lie”.

Roger Goodell, Brett Favre, whoever, take your pick because nobody will give a hoot anyway. Now the question is will the White Hut ask the NFL to delay the start of the game?

Dick Cheney! Okay, I know it is a long shot.

How about somebody that has actually run a business, knows what it takes to "create" a real job, and understands how the policies of the Obama Administration negatively affect the job market.

How about a business person from the Gulf Coast that has been affected more negatively by the drilling ban than by the Deepwater Horizon spill.

To be accurate as an Army Lieutenant Colonel it should be LTC West or Colonel West (as in addressing him) but in general military terms Lt. Col. West.

In my case I answer to all of the above. But...

Ok, it doesn’t matter. He’s awesome.

LOL our (Old Dominion) basketball coach is from Montana and used the same phrase when describing Virginia Tech coach Seth Greenberg campaigning for a NCAA bid, except he said, “all hat, no horse”. Good stuff... you are the second person I’ve heard use that.
