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?

Nobody. A response is a tool they will use against us.

No response at all.

How about somebody that has actually run a business

That is actually a brilliant suggestion.

Folks are used to one politician repeating his talking points to be followed by another politician repeating his talking points.

To have a person with real-life experiences and real-life insights address the nation would be an amazing thing.

And it would not be soon forgotten.

Professor Erwin Corey. Fight fire with fire, I say!

I am embarrased to say I had not seen him for so long that I...
But he's 93 and as sharp as ever, evidently.

A staple of Professor Corey's routine is describing how he procured from the federal government a copy of the Declaration of Independence through the Freedom of Information Act. He pulls out the document, most of which is blacked out with marker.

Priceless!

Who should deliver the GOP response to Obama’s speech?

Hopefully someone who can refute Obama’s proposals & numbers on their feet and in a way that is easily understood by those watching. Ryan, who commands numbers detail, comes to mind or Rubio in a more general sense. Give examples of Obama failures in street sense, not tired old lofty slogans and sound bites.

Not sure if Sen Ron Johnson from Wisconsin is a guy ready for a stage that big, but he would be great as a former businessman who ran last year because of the obama economic failure. If not him, I vote for Rubio. He has not yet done an event like this. Of course, they may want to reserve him for next years state of the union when more people are watching.

Rush would be awesome. He could mention the NFL, say he lost his commentator job when he mentioned that the press was hyping a black quarterback that they wanted to succeed. And then note that the hyping of Obama by the press is 100 times more pronounced.

Obama is going to cancel and just call a few reps to the Whitehouse...just like before. (He's a repeater.)

Object: Then he can comment on "poor Repub behavior"...non cooperative....bad boys...ignorant..don't care....self serving....
