2009 GOP Senate-House Dinner

Addressing tonight’s 2009 GOP Senate-House Dinner, Fmr. House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) will likely stress the GOP’s role as a “reform party.” Other speakers at the annual fundraising dinner include Senate Min. Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) and House Min. Leader John Boehner (OH), among others. Actor Jon Voight emcee’s the event.

Jon Voight:

"Certainly, at the outset, the democrats fulfilled their mission to paint President Bush as a war monger. And once they were able to reach out to the youth in colleges, on the internet with this lie, painting him as the evil one, never giving him credit for keeping us safe .. once they established that, then it would be easy to bring in The One, as Oprah Winfrey crowned him.

I’m also ashamed to say that Hollywood was a big part of tearing down President Bush."

Jon Voight's closing remarks - also fabulous

~~~

Actor Jon Voight, who hosted the dinner, delivered a particularly harsh rebuke to Obama, saying he was "embarrassed" by the president and that Obama's leadership would cause the "downfall" of the country.

"We are becoming a weak nation," he said, calling Obama a "false prophet" and his administration the "Obama oppression."

Republican leaders who spoke afterward praised his comments. "You're great. Come back any time," Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky said. Gingrich called Voight's comments a rallying cry until the next elections in 2010.

The pubbies were pathetic compared to Voight in the segment that preceded chow time. It was a shame. While they may be intelligent, they’re depressing to watch knowing what’s at stake.

Jon Voight In 2012?

Contrast and compare. According to the AP, they didn't raise the amount of funds some expected. Good move, GOP. I guess you should have gone with Palin after all.

Listening to his speech, I thought the applause was light ans hesitant for his pithy comments. Later, it was enthusiastic for intros of Senators Hatch and Mcconnell--like they were hesitant to agree out loud by clapping. Am I wrong? or are these Congresscritters mostly too afraid to speak out or may not agree?

Maybe they were afraid the cameras would catch them clapping wildly and then be accused of being a racist on Tuesday morning !

Look how fabulous Rush looks ...he received the Freedom of Speech award from Talkers magazine, pictured with Mark Levin (I think he needs Rush's diet ;) at the steps of EIB1. I always thought Mark was short .. he is not.

Wow! I cannot believe how different Rush looks now in that photo in #18, from the way he looked just a few months ago in February 2009 at CPAC in DC:

Good for Rush! May he live many long, happy years. :o)

Yeah, Mark should lose weight too.

Watched brief coverage of this this AM on CNN.

First, they had a misspelled tag (or whatever it is called) on the screen during the Voight clip. It said “Obama False Profit”. They showed it two different times before someone caught it and replaced “profit” with “prophed”. Idiots.

Then, after the clip, John Roberts (I think that’s his hame— guy that looks like a hammerhead shark) put on an act of being absolutely stunned by Voight’s words, as if oight had said something along the lines of “Obama sneaked into my house and stole my blood in the middle of the night.” I guess for Hammerhead it is just inconceivable that anyone can possibly see Benito Obama for the dictator that he is.

Rush does look great. It's so funny. Right after Rush's speech at the GOP PAC, I told Hubby, Rush is a true Capricorn...he will see himself on TV, replay it and realize he looks huge, and lose weight. We Caps are too proud not to fix a problem--and do it with sheer willpower (we're tough on ourselves that way). AND...sure enough...right after that, he did.

Since I've had my pic taken with Mark Levin, I can attest to the fact that he's about 6 or 6'1" - which I didn't realize either until actually seeing him. MARK STAND TALLER - YOU ARE AN INCREDIBLE PERSON - STAND TALL AND PROUD... He's humble and slumps. Isn't that always the case with those that have the most to stand tall about?

I saw Mr. Voight at the Freedom Concert in San Diego last time around.... I yelled, "Mr. Voight" - He looked over at me and then I said, "You are a GREAT father," and I smiled at him. He looked really touched and said a very genuine thank you to me.

Class act.

He’s lost about 60 lbs in 3-4 months...on a special “diet” that he says he can follow for the rest of his life....briefly mentioned it one day...said it was too hard to explain, other than he’s satisfied, and losing weight....sounded more like a “diet” for HIM and his nutritional needs....
