The Sunday Morning Bray, by Bray!
We know that we ave passed from death to life, because we LOVE our brothers. Anyone who does not LOVE remains in death. 1 John 3:14
Its not worth getting angry about! This may have been the line that sank the largest Gladiator to ever run for the Republican nomination. This came from his subconscious and was a statement of war against the Tea Party and any freedom loving patriots who are spitting mad at the thought of having their lives being run by an inefficient gummit bureaucracy. Yes Mitt, it is worth getting angry about as is the need to stopping your establishment coronation since the Tea Party wants to clean up the corruption and socialism out of our Party before cleaning it out of the Dems. We want to bring down this entire Roman Coliseum and that starts with you.
You get a real look into a mans character when the going gets tough and Ricks attacks showed us Mitt Rinos lack thereof. Nobody resents his wealth and he has an admirable success story but does anybody really believe he would be worth what he is if his last name was Roberts rather than Romney. He may not have inherited any money from his father but he did inherit his name and that was worth millions. As the head of American Motors and Governor of Michigan who ran for President during the heyday; giving Mitt a giant head start in both business and politics. He represents another political/financial dynasty like the Kennedys, the Rockefellers and Bushes. Nobody resents his success but he hardly did it by himself like Newt, Rick, Bachmann or Cain and he knows as well as anybody he is the poster boy for Crony Capitalism.
So he plays by a set of rules that is very dirty and nasty from lessons he learned in the lowest of business practices as well as having more funding than the rest of the candidates combined. He plays to destroy his competition through character assassination leaving him as the only one standing. We are seeing with the Newt attacks he plays by his own set of rules and so does the establishment. This is following the same pattern we saw destroy Michelle, Cain and the same thug tactics that were used against Palin. We are watching the worst form of political attacks to hide his commie lib record so he goes about destroying everybody else with lies and distortion.
This is not so much an attack on Newt but an attack on what is right and fair in an open democracy. We have seen enough of the personal destruction of our spokesmen over that past 15-20 years from the Democrats and we dont need to see the game played that way by our side. We need to have Romney explain his history of supporting liberal legislation and let the truth reveal who is the right person to save this country. Lets find out what kind of business practices this great capitalist used to amass his fortune or did he use these types of thug tactics to acquire his wealth?
We had a peek behind the curtain when he said, Its not worth getting upset about healthcare. This statement told us he was not going to fight for the people or the elimination of healthcare. He is going to manage the program and trim a few things around the edges rather than try to reverse it as the first step to reversing all the oppressive gummit controls. In one statement when he was cornered with no way out we got a look inside his mind and it is not one who is willing to fight for his Presidency let alone for the basic rights of the common man and disqualified himself as a candidate. When the going got tough Mitt quit. In the end he would be worse than Obama since he would be fighting the Tea Party just as hard from our side of the battlefield.
All of the establishmedia roared and raved how their golden boy beat that common Conservative loudmouth that they dont want to vote for let alone defend against their echo chamber which is what they fear. They want to have an elitist like they are, who is a Rockefeller Republican that is not really all that stuck on messy issues like abortion, gun control, homosexual marriage or God. They want someone who looks like a President who would be in the in crowd and if he wins the White House their lives would just continue and get better. Newt however would be forcing them to have to defend and rub elbows with those yucky Tea People who really dont understand the nuances of the culture of DC. After all, they just spent eight years defending a hick from Texas; they dont want to have to defend a Newt. They know exactly who they want and Newt is their worst nightmare since he would declare War on the beltway and they never hired on to try to explain that, again.
So the moderate establishmedia just turns their head when their Golden Boy makes a mistake of monumental measure and declares him the winner and frontrunner again. Meanwhile the people saw what he is made of and the glass jaw he p-p-p-possesses as well as his lack of will to eliminate Obamacare. We will continue the mandate to buy healthcare, no underwriting for insurance companies, and the bankruptcy of those companies followed by single payer and of course death panels, but those are nothing to get angry about. We will have a lukewarm conservative when the fight isnt too hard but mostly we will have GW without the backbone to stand by his convictions or the ability to articulate conservatism. The main thing the establishmedia is hoping is the end of the Tea Party and their messy influence on politics.
We have a candidate with a flood of money who is likely funneling it both through the front door and the back who has the entire GOP establishment pulling his campaign like six charging horses around the Coliseum. As their gladiator kills victim after victim Newt climbed down from the crowd with a large sword and a fortress of books who is now standing in their path yelling Live Free or Die! Will the crowd give him the thumbs up or the thumbs down and another kill? What the Floridians and America have to ask themselves is if they are going to allow the Republican Party to continue to mirror the Democrat Party or are they going to demand standards?
Are they going to judge our candidates by their actions, ideas, their history as well as character rather than how much mud their opposition research can dig up or twist? Are we going to let the Establishmedia decide our candidate or are we? This is exactly how we got Obama and to allow this form of politics to succeed in our Party will be the death of the dream our Forefathers had when they envisioned this grand experiment. They believed God shed his grace on Thee and to accept this form of corruption is not what he shed it for. We as Americans have to say no to this, which will open the door for candidates like Cain, Bachmann and Palin to fight with their records and ideas rather than away from the slime merchants who run the Coliseum. Newt and we are fighting to the death against the entire Roman Empire and when this battle is over only one walks out.
Pray for America
Note: The above opinion is not necessarily mine, but FReeper Brays. If you wish to discuss this, please ping Bray.
Looks like some pretty good speakers today.
I don't know how many here got to watch Newt's speech last night in West Palm but it was tremendous.A true work of art.
Newt stuck it to everyone on the left and right who had blasted him about going to the moon and creating a base instead of giving the moon to the Chinese which is what would happen. It's not as far fetched as you think once you figure out that private money could be used instead of govt. funds.
Good morning AB and thanks once again for the thread. Looks like FNS will be the one to watch because of Paul Ryan and Newt.
Truth is the left/rinos are once again trying to pick our candidates.
I guess the theory is that if the left should lose to Romney he's so close to zero that they won't get hurt as much as if a true patriot like Newt won.
In addition the left wants to run against Romney since he takes obamcare off the table.Obamcare is huge. It's socializing 1/6 of the economy forever.Obamacare will put millions of Americans into poverty,under govt. control paving the road to socialism.
In addition there is the NBC issue with Mitts father being born in Mexico and then the big one class warfare.
The regime is not going all out on class warfare just out of the blue. With Romney as a candidate it can be a huge issue.
If they can demagogue Mitt for his association with Bain and dig up what is already out there, the times that Bain destroyed companies and looted funds which were then paid out in dividends to investors merely to show a high return for investors while tanking the company in the process. They have a huge class warfare argument that will be tough to counter.
We face an enemy that can not run on their record.
They have created enormous debt,have no energy plans,destroyed housing,created massive unemployment, and now claim everything is OK and getting better.!!
They have to create issues, let us fall into them, and then slam the door on us and that's exactly what is happening.
Let's hope we don't fall for it.
ALways read the thread when home from church and you are long gone. Thanks for it. Miss bah bah, she always gave more details knowing I’d be reading later...BTW contributed a bit in her honor on the Freeathon..Keep in touch with the girls, They are doing well.
Santorum showed up as the adult in the room at the FL debate, while Gingrich and Romney sniped at each other over minutia.
According to some polls, Romney has moved ahead.
According to other polls, Gingrich has moved ahead.
My candidate is better than yours. [I still haven’t decided on one yet, however.]
Last night’s new PPP poll is very bad news for Newt. He’s going to need a miracle in FL. :(
PPP polls should be dismissed out of hand as PPP is a RAT outfit.
Which one is Mitt on?
Morning AB, All
As always AB, thank you for doing this thread so dependably every Sunday.
The Florida primaries coming up this week. The Blue Bloods doing their best to destroy Newt and should Santorum make a rise to replace, he too will be on their radar.
I have said many times yon ladies and gems that which y’all should be learning as truth for my wisdom
The GOP Blue Blood Elites will reach across the aisle with perfectly polished fingernails but will rip off the heads of their protesting base and crap down their bloody necks.
So we have, proving that they don’t have a clue, first Juan McCain, then .heh, Bob Dole, on to Tom Delay.
THESE ARE EXACTLY THE SORTS THE BASE IS SICK OF!!
So they trot them out with their endorsements of Romney, excoriation of Newt, and this is supposed to appease us and calm our troubled souls?
They simply do not have a clue.
Got a real insight via something I heard this past week, about the so-called establishment GOP and even with my huge bucket of wisdom, I learned something quite intriguing.
Will share later as the thread unfolds.
Thanks for the thread AB.
Mitt Romney = BAWK, BAWK, BAWK, BAWK
Florida isn’t the last stop but it is a big one we need to win. He had a great speech last night and hopefully a lot of late deciders saw it.
Pray for Newt
Santorum will be a no show on account of his baby daughter's being hospitalized.
Newt will have a couple opportunities to distinguish himself over his competition, Romney, the GOP establishment, and that minor extension of the GOP establishment, Obama.
I don’t trust ANY polls, really, but they often turn out to be accurate. PPP has Newt dropping 6 points and seniors going strongly for Romney. It’s here: http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/
He inherited plenty of his wealth, just not all of it. Romney is where he is largely on account of his father's political and business efforts.
Newt up on FNS.
They will be discussing the Jan Brewer/Obongo flap.
Per Newt: Gov. Romney carpetbombing to win in Fla. like he always has done in past campaigns
New NBC poll in FL showing Romney leading 15 points over Gingrich.
Santorum does better against Obama than Gingrich. Romney does best, but still 5 points under Obama.
Gregory turns to McCain and Thompson. I turn to another news program.
Newt admits that Santorum is splitting the conservative vote. Mentions all the endorsements. A not so subtle message to Rick.
DNC Dave opens with ChUck the schmuck Todd from Mostly stupid NBC trying to show mitt ahead 42-27 and pulling further away.Then chuck tries to show that the pubbie election is taking a toll on pubbies.So biased you can’t even comment on it.<p.
NOw I go back to other sites since McCain is on.....
Newt describing Romney’s carpet bombing (his opponent)with money raised from his Wall Street buddies.
Newt ahead in national polls.
Wallace referencing both campaigns running negative ads.
Newt accusing Romney of lying and refuting the claims of ethics violations and his resignation as speaker.
Newt says he doesn’t know how you are supposed to debate a lying opponent like Romney.
CBS could be interesting, as it is GOP establishment, with an appearance by Bachmann. Which way will she go, if any?
ABC likewise, with Boehner being the one to look for a read from.
What’s with Wallace clearing his throat while Newt is speaking???
I’m not sure “we” need to win Florida, assuming the we is for Newt. I admit I might be saying this as for now it looks good for Romney.
HOWEVER, what looks like a “prolonged” primary season, much to the Blue Blood dismay, will allow states like....well Delaware comes to mind, to have primaries and perhaps be counted in.
Thus Florida’s alleged importance dims in that the base, with bloody stumps for necks all filled with crap, are not going gently into the Mittens good night.
Chris is lying his head off. He brings up a clip from 5 yrs ago and puts words in his mouth that wasn’t there. This is nothing more than an attack ad.
Pretty much by calling out the lies, which he is doing. What Newt should do is put the onus on the media to protect its own credibility (haha) by also noticing the lies, and he can use CNN's Blitzer's example of pointing out the "Newt said Spanish is a ghetto language" claim as false; and also pointing out that Romney's claim to be unaware seemed false too, as Romney's voice appeared at the end of the ad as approving the message.
Hey, Bob Dull is still alive; who knew? Now he is a great spokesman.
Wallace trying to trap Newt on the “Spanish language” non-issue. Ticked off over Romney’s mischaracterization of the issue.
He claims Romney was for total immersion in English.
Newt going after the GOP establishment, Wallace asking him how they are hurting the country. Washington seems incapable of doing an investigation of the Dodd/Frank bill debacle.
Being asked about Bob Dole’s allegations of Newt being a “one man band” Slams moderates of being unable to debate and successfully run against democrat presidential candidates.
I see absolutely nothing wrong with what Newt said in that ad. The word “ghetto” was not used disparagingly. This interview might actually help Newt. He was able to set straight the lies Romney barraged him with at the debate the other night.
And too, that Florida's primary has diluted influence at the convention, with half of its delegates being stripped by the party for "going earlier than allowed" by party rules.
Not that the GOP establishment has a proper respect for the spirit of its own rules.
I'm hopeful that Newt will win FL - that is, I think he has a much better chance than the news reports and fudged polls would lead a gullible person to believe.
Pam Bondi is on Fox National news now talking about Romney’s new healthcare plan.
Funny thing is, he doesn't even do that very well.
Should be a hoot with Wallace & Gingrich. Wallace, the Mittens lacky vs the anti-elite.
No offense to Boehner, I like him, but I hope more tea party candidates win across the country and that he’s replaced as Speaker.
Always remember, our problem is not just Democrats. It includes many establishment Republicans, RINO’s and the media as well.
Ryan, stop subsidizing crony capitalism and stop penalizing small businesses and other producers.
Ryan: Senate hasn’t passed a budget in now 1005 days.
I live in an area that has a large Hispanic population and I get very frustrated when I hear that children in my son’s kindergarten class are holding others back because they have no concept of the English language. My Hungarian immigrant grandmother would not allow my father to speak Hungarian because they were American and they would speak English. That desire to assimilate, to become a proud American has been replaced by a sense entitlement.
“Pam Bondi is on Fox National news now talking about Romneys new healthcare plan.”
Missed it ... details please.
Whether he is on the ticket as VP or not, the GOP nominee MUST find some way to get Ryan in the forefront in addressing the economy and challenging Obama.
Ryan knows economic issues intimately and knows how to explain the problems in understandable language. [Contrast with 2008 John ‘I don’t know much about economics’ McCain.]
-——Florida’s primary has diluted influence at the convention-——
Did this not happen at the last convention as well but the state eventually prevailed and all delegates were seated?
If you’re not part of the solution, then you’re part of the problem.
I think it’s apparent to all but the most partisan hacks that Washington DC isn’t working in the best interests of the country; rather, the leaders and legislators are working for their own best interest, whether feathering their nests with ill gotten gain or working to remain in power, that is, win the next election.
So, we have to take them on in two ways:
1. Tighten up the laws that lets them make money off of insider trading, for example, and among other things, just whack them over making money beyond their salaries when it’s clear the gain was because they have the elected/appointed power.
2. Term limits.
Everyone opposed is exposed as a establishment hack.
Ryan interview was great.
It seems it is Ryan’s birthday and they brought out a white frosted cake with a green dollar sign on it representing the budget.
Wallace had him cut it for a FNS photo-op.
