Place your bets on the Grown-ups
Townhall ^ | 11/3/06 | Mike Gallagher

Posted on 11/04/2006 4:52:13 AM PST by Molly Pitcher

This is it. The final days, the home stretch. We head into the weekend and then to the polls on Tuesday for what might just be one of the most important elections of our lifetime.

I don’t ever remember feeling so tired.

I’m tired of hearing people try to make excuses for people like John Kerry. I’m tired of hearing pollsters and pundits project a big victory for Democrats this Tuesday. I’m tired of hearing the vicious, bitter attacks on our President’s character by the likes of people like Keith Olbermann, a pseudo-intellectual Manhattan elitist who appears to be having the sort of on-air meltdown that the fictitious movie newsman Howard Beale of ‘Network’ had. I’m tired of the mainstream press relishing every bit of bad news out of Iraq or about the economy, while virtually ignoring all the positive stuff.

Most of all, I’m just tired of fighting.

But I’m not close to stopping. The stakes are too high. There might just be enough people on the fence that could be persuaded into doing the right thing on November 7th. And so I’m going to try.

Like it or not, political parties are defined by their most prominent members. We Republicans have had our share of headaches and embarrassments. Neither party is without its gaffes.

But at the end of the day, I’ll put the prominent Republican leaders up against the Democrats of 2006 any time. And we’ll all be able to agree that there is a world of difference between the two.

Just consider the people who help to make up the heart and soul of the Democratic Party: Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John Kerry, Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, Michael Moore, Keith Olbermann, Alcee Hastings, Marion Berry, Rosie O’Donnell, Barbara Boxer, and Barbra Streisand.

Compare that list to some of the more notable Republicans: George W. Bush, Denny Hastert, Bill Frist, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Sean Hannity, Rudy Guiliani, George Allen, Kay Bailey Hutchison, Dick Cheney, John Cornyn, and just about every country music singer in America.

C’mon, it’s not even a close call. Face it, the Democrats are a bunch of angry, bitter, cynical people with no direction, no strategy, and certainly not a whole lot of positive things to say about the USA. The Republicans just feel like, well, the grown-ups.

A war is a very grown-up thing. It might not be as exotic as worrying about what global warming is going to do to snail darters in Antarctica, but terrorism threatens us all. Personally, I’d prefer to take my chances with the ozone over a bunch of angry fanatics who think chopping off my head or blowing up my airplane will send them to heaven.

We have to act like grown-ups. It might seem intriguing to fret about diversity, but our children and our children’s children are counting on us to keep our country safe. And we are in way better shape with the grown-ups in charge than handing over the keys to the car to Ted Kennedy.

I was fascinated by the way Americans reacted to John Kerry’s incredible slur against our troops this week. Sure, there was anger and passion and plenty of hurt feelings. But do you know what didn’t really occur? Hate. That blind, red hot hate that so many Democrats have for honorable people like George W. Bush.

It appears that Democrats made a decision to make our President the focal point of most of their smear campaigns. They figure that if they can attack Bush while running a campaign ad for Congress, voters will be inspired to vote for the Democrat.

Well, as he once famously said: Bring it on. I’ll stack his integrity and guts up against most of these folks on the left any day of the week.

I’m just not willing to believe that voters will be so gullible as to let the Dems win next week.. I can’t accept the possibility that we’ll allow the hateful, vengeful Democrats to gleefully attempt to turn our country into an unholy mess for the next couple of years. No matter what anyone thinks of President Bush’s decisions, I just refuse to think that we’re ready to stomach a party that might just very well try to impeach our commander-in-chief during wartime if they take control of the House and Senate.

Like most Republican leaders in America today, I believe in my country. I have faith that we’ll do the right thing next week. I am proud of our troops, I pray for our President, and I love the United States of America.

We’re a nation that has witnessed a lot of miracles. Maybe, just maybe, we’ll see one more this coming Tuesday.

Yeah, I'm tired too, but the alternative...? How tired must the President be?

But grown-ups don't run from the field....

I'll be watching the day before happen. I really do want to see if the propaganda has worked and that people really are turned inward, as the Democrats want. I hear it sometimes in the street, but I also know how deceptive ad hoc observations are, thought-out or off-the-cuff.

This is the Super Bowl for political fans as well as the junkies. I'll be the one with the popcorn.

I am wondering if Bush apprval numbers will go up as he campaigns. The last number was 46% and if he goes over 50%, he may pull peop;le like Allen and Talent up with him. One thing I know for sure. Oberman gets way too much attention and too much commentary is on what the media is doing, not the voters.

Mark Foley, Terry Dolan, David Drier, James (Jeff Gannon) Guckert, Ken Mehlman, Armstrong Williams, Don Wildmon, Robert Traynham (Rick Santorums “Friend“), Bob Packwood, Strom Thurmond, Bob Barr, Dan Burton, Henry Hyde, Newt Gingrich, Ted Haggard, all of them sodomites and adulterers and my list is hardly complete.

I’m a values voter. How can I, or any Christian of good conscience go out and vote? These people DO NOT represent my values. My party has lied to me. I am NOT voting. I have been lied to by these sinners once too many times. They have the house-thanks to us. They have the senate-thanks to us. They have the supreme court - thanks to us. Have they passed any of our agenda? Is marriage protected? Is abortion banned? Have punishments for adulterers and sodomites been put in place? They don’t deserve my vote.
They don’t represent Biblical truth and traditional family values. They are lieing vipers.

I’m not voting.

Your party (and mine) may have let us down on some issues (or some people) but it is unrealistic to think that you can have it all. The "values" of the Republican Party are noble, where the alternative is detrimental to our society.
I did my duty the other day and voted (we have early voting in my state) Republican all the way down to circuit court judges. Always consider that the alternative (a DummiecRat Congress) will put our very existence in jeopardy.

Well take a good look in the mirror Mr. Self-Righteous, because you, me ALL of us are sinners so get your ass to a voting booth and pull the 'R' levers unless you want to wake up Wednesday morning with an impending 'Rat takeover which will make any disappointments you may have right now seem like a minor headache.

And should the day ever come when the 'Rats abdicate their responsibility from waging the war on terror, remember your whining as the Islamic blade comes down on your neck.

Now quit yur b*tchin' and bellyachin and do your duty as an American.

Maybe if the Republicans would purge all the sodomites from our party who are pressing the homosexual agenda, or actually cut off all RNC support for candidates who are adulterers, or at least take responsibility for their lack of legislative action on Christian and Biblical issues. I'm not voting and I'm putting my faith in the ALMIGHTY.

Huge mistake! Bush has delivered to you two excellent and conservative Supreme Court judges -- which will carry you for the next 30 years or more -- and possibly a 3rd one. You get DEMs is power and that 3rd one will be a liberal moonbat.

You are never going to get everything that you want but don't destroy the only party that is trying to steer the boat in your direction.

This isn't about rewarding anybody, it is about voting in the best interest of America's security, and for all their faults, Republicans are far and away the better choice than the Democrats, which you are helping elect by your childish non-participation.

They keep talking the talk, but they refuse to walk the walk.

But they're trying, which is more than can be said for you, who plans to sit on your ass come Election Day.

Maybe if the Republicans would purge all the sodomites from our party who are pressing the homosexual agenda

Hello? have you seen Congressman Mark Foley lately? He resigned because he KNEW he would be expelled if he didn't get out, as opposed to Democrat Jerry Studds of Massachusetts, who not only stayed around for years after his public depravity was revealed, but he recently died and was praised by the 'Rat party elders. Think about that.

or actually cut off all RNC support for candidates who are adulterers

Why don't you let God worry about the adulterers? He has it all under control.

or at least take responsibility for their lack of legislative action on Christian and Biblical issues.


They've done more than you would have seen from an Al Gore Administration.

I'm not voting and I'm putting my faith in the ALMIGHTY.


And one Day the Almighty is going to ask you what you thought you were trying to prove by allowing 'Rats (who are generally, across-the-board opposed to Him) to seize power thanks in part due to your Election Day temper tantrum.

Better work on your excuse. You're gonna need it.

Let me see now. David committed adultery and murder, Moses killed an Egyptain, the Apostle Paul persecuted Christians, and Peter denied Christ three times. Are you saying that we should give up on Christianity? Why bother to go to church on Sunday? Your logic is flawed. You take the best alternative offered and you vote.

Christians delivered the Congress, the Senate, and the George Bush presidency. George Bush didn't get them appointed to the Supreme Court. Traditional family values voters did! So, What has been our reward? Republicans have IGNORED us. They are incapable of passing any legislation that would advance Biblical truth for our country. They laugh at us behind our backs and then go to their gay or swingers clubs with the tax dollars we pay them.

Be on your guard against false prophets; they come to you looking like sheep on the outside, but on the inside they are really like wild wolves.

Note to DU lurkers:

A highly placed source has informed us that, with Democrat control of the House and Senate now in the bag, trucks from the Government will begin delivering the Free Stuff it owes you early Tuesday morning. You must be at home to get your Free Stuff. Because of the large number of deliveries and the small number of drivers, it will probably be a long time before they can deliver to your neighborhood again. Don't leave home Tuesday until you get your Free Government Stuff! Don't listen to the neighbors if they 'dis you about this . . . they probably think you're stoopid and plan to rip you off.

I can understand that. I guess my problem is that I'm so cynical about media coverage I've come to trust only one poll or one report, the results showing the next day. Too many times the media has attempted to manipulate the vote, IMHO. I won't give them any attention towards that end any more. They can all go pound sand because I don't believe a word they say.

The 2004 election with their "exit poll" fiasco was just the tip of the iceberg as far as I'm concerned. I just don't want to deal with their bias, even FOX, any more.

Many of those you named in your list of "sinners" never held elective office and many others are no longer part of our government.

So what's your point? That you'd rather have 'honorable' people like Alcee Hastings (impeached as a judge but now serving in the House!); Charles Rangel; Henry Waxman; and John Conyers as chairmen of important committees in the House?

I pray that you don't get your wish because I love my country too much to want it turned over to the control of those who champion abortion rights; gay 'marriage'; and other values abhorrent to the Lord!

I wish I could change your mind. You are right. I can't suggest for one minute that the GOP has done a great job--they haven't even done a good job--at best the last few years have been mediocre--and Iraq? Perhaps we didn't see as aggressive hands-off strategy employed to defeat the Muslim fascists as we needed to. It's not the troops fault. This sinner prays for them every day. Many democrats hate them. I know.
When Foley was revealed, at least he was summarily sent home.
Pelosi has voted for abortion including partial birth and she has also voted for fedrally funding for the killing--at least the GOP kept that from happening.
Many in the GOP don't deserve to be sent back. I pray that should they still be gifted with power, they will do a good job. But they must hear from us. I have and will continue to write and call--democrats will do far worse. That's what I know and why I chose to vote straight GOP. But they will not be let off, ever. They have to step up and do the right things.
The democrats will do the wrong things. They gave us Ginsberg on the supreme court for one example.
God speed to you. I hope you and yours prosper and enjoy good health.

Just what I was thinking. I've observed this tactic on numerous Talk Radio shows in recent weeks trying to demoralize the base. Poor Richard what a shortsighted and craven piece of work you are. What will you get from a Rat takeover?

1) More dead babies.
2) Gun control
3) Amnesty for illegal aliens
4) Surrender to the terrorists
5) Higher taxes
6) No possibility of conservative SCJs
7) Impeachment 24/7

If he can't see that then good prudence. We ask not for his service or sacrifice,he can bow down and lick the boots of his new masters.

Poor Richard, you appear to be a Democratic hyena costumed in Republican fleece. Baa-baa

***I’m a values voter. How can I, or any Christian of good conscience go out and vote? These people DO NOT represent my values. My party has lied to me. I am NOT voting. I have been lied to by these sinners once too many times. They have the house-thanks to us. They have the senate-thanks to us. They have the supreme court - thanks to us. Have they passed any of our agenda? Is marriage protected? Is abortion banned? Have punishments for adulterers and sodomites been put in place? They don’t deserve my vote. They don’t represent Biblical truth and traditional family values. They are lieing vipers. I’m not voting.****
  1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
  2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
  3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
  4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
  5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

....And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more....


So don't vote. And I'm glad you are 'perfect'. Most of 'us' are not.

I'm not voting and I'm putting my faith in the ALMIGHTY.

You're an idiot.
