“The Sunday Morning Bray”, by Bray!

Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” John 6:29

Barring a meltdown of some sort, Mitt Romney won the election Thursday night as he gave the undecided voters a reason to vote for him. Not only did he give them a reason they heard the reason to be excited about the candidate as well as the future of this Country. If after four long years as President the best you have is that you are not George Bush, you have given your boss a reason to send you a pink slip. Most adults have given up on the pointing the finger at the other guy in Junior High which explains why it is still so popular in the DNC.

In any Presidential race the challenger has to prove that he is capable of handling the Presidency. Not only did Romney show he is capable he showed that he is a more experienced and competent executive than the commie agitator. His speech was flawless as he told how he lived a very blessed life to the point of saying in America we celebrate success rather than impugn it. This nullifies the entire Bozo Biden campaign of vilification and dehumanization of the successful of this Country. For anybody who likes or loves America the Beautiful, Romney earned their vote as the race made a giant step towards completion.

We are now going to have to endure a week of snarky speeches by one of the angriest men to ever occupy the White House compound. My source inside the White House said the entire campaign was there expecting and rooting for the giant gaff or stiltedness Mitt has been known for and after the speech one actually mumbled the race was over. The voice couldn’t be identify but as the balloons dropped Michelle left the room knocking a hole in the door with her fist on her way out. Barak wadded up his speech and missed the trashcan then began rewriting the dronefest adding how much he loves the Country and added at least ten more versions of the Middle Class workers against the greedy bankers. My source walked out mumbling, “Yeah, something fresh and new.”

Mitt Romney’s speech came down to one line, “When President Obama was elected he promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet, my promise is to help you and your family.” This covers the entire Obama plan by enslaving America with the global warming cult to accomplish it. If a few brilliant people hadn’t exposed and destroyed the corporate hoax he would have gotten his Cap & Trade legislation which would have transferred trillions of dollars from energy to Goldman Sachs to be redistributed to the energy producing dictators. Rather than $4/gal we would now have $6-8/gal which is what he would prefer. Rather than just 30% higher energy prices we would have 100% and you would then be their slaves. By fooling the people into Dirt Worshiping they would be using more and more of their budget to feed Cap & Trade while the Inner Circle lived their lives as the Plantation Owners.

Mitt’s plan will be to eliminate that burden. He is not going to push global warming, rather will begin to free our abundant energy reserves. This is going to be the first step to helping our families and the second is to get the gummit off of your necks. To begin to manage our resources he will have to eliminate the moratoriums and draconian laws which lock up oil and coal. He and a new congress will set about the task of allowing the usage of our abundant resources which have been vilified like every other resource to success we have seen over the past forty years. Once that happens we will begin to see the start of a new and vibrant economy which leads to more and more jobs.

The world has never seen an America with the chains off her ankles. We for the past forty years have been shackled and enslaved by the commie libs both in and outside of DC to use our energy usage as a pipeline of redistribution for the impoverished countries. What those community organizers ignored was the pipeline of cash naturally went to corrupt dictators who built lavish homes and compounds while their subjects continued to live in poverty forcing the Greenpeace commies to feel the need to lock up more of our energy to expand the pipeline to these dictators. It is time to cut that pipeline of corruption and unleash the energy for American families.

We need to relax our regulations and allow our businesses to begin to regulate themselves. Rather than corrupt politicians deciding everybody should be driving a tuna can to get 55 mph or an electric cart, let the market decide. If we can produce the oil or gas, who cares what the car gets per mile if we have the resources to make it work. The market will decide which is best and why. We don’t need some pencil pusher in DC dictating if we have one part per billion of a certain chemical in our water when he has no clue if it helps or hurts humans but will drive your cost up either way. And we don’t need some agenda driven professor deciding for you whether what is the right temperature for the planet based on how much he can restrict America from becoming the greatest economy in the histoir of mankind.

The main message from the Romney speech was, being successful doesn’t disqualify you from being an American. We have allowed the people who hate this country the most to decide who is good or bad and who needs to be punished. They of course have said everybody who wants to destroy America is good, such as the media, academia and communists….redundancy alert! Since these people are declared good by their own consensus, everyone who loves this country are declared bad and uninformed. This has allowed them to manipulate the discussion to the point now where only certain industries such as computer, media and gangsta rap are allowed to succeed and every other business is evil. It is time to change this equation and celebrate success.

Making Mitt Romney president changes that equation and will explode their heads as they see an end to their corrupt equation. To proclaim every business is valuable to the overall economy to complete the complex puzzle which is the essence of capitalism makes first step towards freedom. They have done a good job of brainwashing America into hating itself and now is the time to reveal the truth to America. It will take decades to change this equation but as we do we will see milepost after milepost passed as one of the truly ingenious economies ever devised begins to unleash the power and dynamics of its freedom.

Our Founding Fathers invented a system that had never been tried in the history of mankind and was shelved for political power. The commie libs would and do call George Washington, Ben Franklin and Tomas Paine, rightwing extremists, when they were the true freedom fighters of history. These same haters consider Stalin, Mao, Castro and Lenin as moderates who should be revered. A free and unfettered America like our Founders envisioned can be the lighthouse of the world both economically and politically changing people’s minds and hearts, Romney is the first step in that direction and his success points the way. He can begin to rebuild the foundation of our Shining City on the Hill.

Pray for America

I got polled by Rassmusen Saturday!

The voice asked if I was registered as a Republican, a democrat, didn’t know, or Independent. I’m not registered in any party, they don’t even have that requirement in my state, so I chose Independent. In any case, I hope the numbers saying democrat fall to an all time low.

Just think, after Obama’s election less than 4 short years ago, the driveby media were writing all kinds of articles and hosting talking head shows on the “Death of the Republican Party” and the democrats being on top for 50 years... Now, here we are.

It started with Rush saying he wished Obama failed, and then the TEA party rose up in righteous indignation, flaming spendthrift democrats at town halls across the country, the November 2010 EARTHQUAKE, and now, perhaps it is the beginning of the death of the democratic party!

We’ve come a long way, baby!

Sergeant Major, I misscounted the Republicans on the shows but I do have an excuse!

Too much beer and football:

Bama plays with a purpose.

Pre-game, everyone was saying (outside my Sweet Home Alabama) that Alabama has had too many good players go on to the NFL, and they weren't as strong as the once were, and that Michigan was hungry and Denard Robinson was going to confound and outplay them. Huh?

So I'm happy, but I crawled out of bed this morning, and have a headache.

Nice digest of the past four years.

I'm rather looking forward to seeing Rhambo, Mayor of Massacres.

Will Rhambo get things in order before Obambi and his family move back home in January?

Oh, I think it is.

And they will have only themselves to blame. They don't realize that it's not just Obama going down. Liberalism has morphed into socialism, and the people will reject it this November in a massive repudiation.

If Romney/Ryan manage to free up our lands and shores for drilling as they say they will do, and get Obamacare and Dodd-Frank off the private-sector's back, then a very rapid economic revival is in the offing. I don't think the American people will ever let liberals back in power once that happens.

The new Dem party will have to coalesce around someone like Evan Bayh or Mark Warner in order to survive. If they stay the course, they will become as relevant as the Socialist Party has been.

Obama will become reviled even by the left as time goes by, is my prediction.

The mainstream media's going down too.

Those ‘death of the party’ claims have been around since Clinton was impeached.

If X wins, it will be the end of Y’s party. It has been said of both the Democratic and Republican parties. Dems were dead after Clinton. Now, Clinton is more popular than Obama. Dems were dead after Kerry. Pubbies were dead after Bush.

Ironically, the majority party seems to be so bad that other party wins the next time: 2006; 2008; 2010.

Good Morning All. Thanks as usual AB for the thread. And another homerun by our resident editorial writer Bray. Speaking of Bray. Was on his website the other day looking at the nice wood products he sells. I think he should imprint every product with “FR’. Let the buyers figure out what it is. We are leaving the Charlotte are for good Tuesday headed for our next assignment in Marshfield, WI. Getting out just in time. Looking forward to brats, beer and good cheese.

Morning AB, All…..

As always, thank you AB for doing this thread. Gotta couple comments this morn, nothing major but to get things off.

First, what's this weekend?

Labor Day!

It's like Christmas around these parts because the tourists shall go home.

Choir began anew last week so I shall be singing on some Sundays but I like choir so another change I like.

Even my daughter came down this weekend all like a tourist. She, husband and grandkid stopped by, mowed my lawn then went down to daughter's mother-in-law, who lives downey ocean on the Merryland side. Her MIL is in Cancun, right in the middle of hurricane season, man that's brave. So daughter and a bunch of her friends have entire place to themselves, all acting like tourists, I want to smack them silly.

I absolutely loved the Republican convention, every minute of it. Loved Clint Eastwood though at first I was averting my eyes for fear he would be a geezer and embarrass himself.

I thought Romney's speech was terrific. He matter-of-factly dealt with Bain Capital and his Mormonism. I got only one comment about Romney's Mormonism…..he's probably known since a child that this is viewed as an odd religion by many and, indeed, one time my daughter got involved with a bunch of Mormons. To this day she considers them a cult.

I'm also quite sure that Romney's had big ambitions for much of his life. As such, if he thought his faith would harm him in pursuit of the presidency, for example, he could have changed his religion, or completely dropped out from it. But he's still a faithful Mormon and my guess is he's devout. Like he so matter-of-factly said, most times those around him wanted to know his sports affiliation rather than his religion.

Loved, loved, loved Paul Ryan's speech.

None of them took it easy on President Obama. There were rumors all around that the "consultants" are advising all GOP convention attendees to "talk about the future"-code for don't talk bad about Obama. Bill Kristol advised this and right there you have it right from the mouths of the Democrats, as is his wont.

Anyway, more to come. Below a couple of my Blog posts in case anyone is interested.

Brilliant expose bray.Here's a post I made Friday on the Limbaugh thread here which goes along with what you are saying.We will have anew President and his name will be Mitt Romney!

From a broadcast standpoint lead-ins can often make or break what you are about to say. If you have a poor lead-in it falls on you to revive the audience, perk them up and invigorate them to hear your message. ON the other hand if you have a Clint Eastwood,a legend, who is fearless, not afraid to say the things the many people are thinking and ends with the audience yelling Make my Day, no one in their right mind would want to follow that!! Its almost sheer broadcast self destruction!! Enter Marco Rubio. He accomplishes the impossible, follows Eastwood, equals his performance, exudes charisma and then introduces Mitt Romney. At that moment the entire Presidency is on the line!! If Mitt blows it, its over. If he is successful after following two of the most dynamic speakers of our time he's a shoe in the next Rockstar President. Slowly but surely we see that Mitt Romney was up to the task. And he did it in his own way. He drove the nail in the dear leader time and again and still was able to pay homage to other pubbies always the sign of a great leader. In the end he refers to zero saying "he will lower the sea level", Mitt closes with I will help your family just so good you want to wipe the tears away because you know we will have a new President!!The country is saved!

Well...isn't this a remarkable coincidence. HillBuzz is reporting the Obamas are planning to purchase a swanky home in Hawaii, selling their Chicago home, rather than move back there in January.

I guess this frees up Rhambo to discuss everything but his dangerous city.

And here’s Snidely Whiplash saying, with a straight face...”We’ve had 29 straight months of job growth,” and now I know what the Democrats will do during their convention.

To Chris Wallace’s credit, he responded...”You keep talking about Romney, I want you to talk about the Obama record”. Wallace then shows a bunch of damning stats, gas prices soar, unemployment still high.

Axelrod says it will take some time to get through these tough times.

Heh.

Those Dems are going down so bad, so very bad.

Did y’all hear how many Dems are NOT showing up for the Dem convention?

I think the saddest moments last week amidst a rising sea of capitalism, free markets and a return to a USA that we all recognize, were all seen on mslsd. Those clowns went nuts over and over and over.Leading the melee was Capt. Tingly himself.Toward the end Matthews was ready to brawl on the final day when he got heckled again.He’s over the hill and ready for the farm,either retirement or funny, jury is still out.

So that’s what they’re going to do at the Dem convention....just get up and lie and lie and lie and lie and lie.

They sent out the meme this morning so let’s see how many of yon Freepers hear the term.

Chris Matthews gets paid to throw his soul into the stinker for the source of his tingly legs. I will always believe this.

Did y’all hear that MSNBC got millions in stimulus money for advertising “green jobs” for the Van Jones group?

Come on people, we got to shed sunlight on all this corruption.

Chris Matthews, there’s a place in hell for you. They have lots of booze and meds for you, keep you calm.

Romney did a good job by staying “inside himself” as the sports guys like to say.

He presented himself to America as a skilled executive with much experience if an otherwise bland personality, the classic “ordinary person capable of extraordinary things” often referred to at the core of American exceptionalism.

This makes for a perfect contrast to the soaring rhetoric and inane promises of Heaven’s own Comrade Baryosha al Obamsky, messiah and king of the roller derby, aka His Haughtiness.

Romney will roll up his sleeves but keep the tie on, Mr. Fix It, Ward Cleaver, the same Mormon casino floor worker whose simple honesty and morality saved Las Vegas from the wrath of employee skimming and other corruption long ago.

He really did save the Olympics and he has the references to show for it. Boy does he ever. And like Paul Ryan said, “What does that remind you of?”

That’s right, the 2002 Olympics were a foreshadowing of today’s crony ridden American corruptocracy. Find me another man who can put the names Mike Eruzione, Scott Hamilton and Derk Parra on the last page of the same resume. Wow.

You see what a good politician Romney is, what a good campaigner. He brought out Clint Eastwood to leave unsaid but certain that “a man’s got to know his limitations.”

Romney really does. He was perfectly himself and that was as close to perfect as it gets in this ruthless business.

Great stuff,as the major cities begin to go bankrupt and the new union jobs start at minimum wage,the welfare moms with 17 kids come to the office and find the cookie jar is bare,the enviro wackos discover that laws and budgets have ruled their side out,its all gonna fall apart.We will have a resurgence of capitalism not seen in years.

Axehead says Romney has no plan when he gave a 5 step plan. This will be the talking points of all the speeches.

In the end you are right. It is THE talk after one party wins over another. However...

The REAL dynamics are such: The people of this country are still mostly conservative, and the media is mostly liberal. So we have a media that talks and shouts over the heads of their listeners, and knowing that so many do not agree with them, the media thinks the great unwashed are stupid.

Now to an extent they are stupid. People too busy to learn the facts, and just fed lies from kindergarten on up so often that they belly-feel the liberal way. And Television, owned and run by the Left mostly keeps them there. But due to the new media and really a remarkable resurgence of conservative thought and pampleteering their Leftist choke-hold is loosing its grip. So they MUST propagandize and spin, tell lies, hide truths, etc, etc, to get us to think they're right and we're wrong. The idea that the Republicans are dead is something I see written a lot about after every even minor democrat victory, and when the Republicans win the media writes the “death of the democrats” stories with sadness and as a way to rally their troops.

Nowadays the media and especially the democrats are not just liberal, but socialist, anti-war, anti-Americans Leftists. The makers and shakers in both camps (or is it truly only one camp?) are right out of the upper-echelons 1960’s Counter-Culture intelligentsia. And the rest of the country, the REAL makers and shakers, are looking at theses past four years thinking, WTF????!!!!???

Where are the Blue Dogs? Where are even the moderates in the democratic party? Where in the media are the REPORTERS of old, the who, what, where, when and how functionalists? Gone. The socialist editorials-in-every-story functionalists have taken over and have become the Journ-O-lists listserv propagandists. If the democrats lose big this year not only do they take the media down with them, but there are no replacements in their ranks to remake their party, and they'll just repeat the same old tired Leftist policies that always fail. Now, that's not to say the Republicans won't screw it up once in charge, but the democrats aren't capable of rebuilding a better cadre with a focus of representing the people.

The Commurats have been hitting some of the local bars giving tickets away for The One’s speech. They are really concerned about attendance.

Grab as many as you can and get them to the TEApartiers, Protest Warriors, Paulistinians.

I was getting donuts at a little shop here in town this morning (yes,they built it). They had a television in the lobby tuned in to CNN’s Morning show.

I heard the announcer previewing the DNC convention this way:
“ The banners are hung and the teleprompters are ready to roll...”

I almost fell onto the floor laughing... in a public place.

And it was CNN saying that!

Wow great catch NN. Also thanks very much for being there again for this last storm,you did a terrific job as usual.

Looks like those internals from the candidate polls referenced here and there may be telling the truth.

Some internals give Mitt a ten point advantage among indys,more than enough to win.

Wonder what got into Wallace? Not only did ne make Axelface look like a fool now he’s after the DNC Convention guy and Mayor of LA. I’m really enjoying FNS for a change.

Amazingly the same line stood out even though I never go on that thread. It was the line of the speech.

If Newt-ered brings Calista, I won’t be watching. Their little “frick and frack” show at the convention was the worst presentation of the whole event, a total embarrassment for him.

She’s bringing down a great guy for her 15 minutes of “fame”.
