“President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans… And to heal the planet… My promise is to help you and your family.” — Mitt Romney
That one line from Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech last night struck me as the most illustrative of the choice we face in November: Oblivion as we pursue more taxpayer-funded moonbat schemes, or dealing with economic reality and fixing it.
I have to admit I have not been a big Romney fan, but I was impressed by his RNC speech. He managed to touch all the salient points on Americans’ minds, hit home with some well-placed barbs directed at Obama, yet maintained a gentlemanly tone the whole time.
My one disappointment is the continuing shunning of Sarah Palin, but overall I felt the convention shredded the Democrats’ lie about a “War on Women” with a long list of strong women speakers who powerfully showed everything women can be: intelligent, successful, strong leaders and devoted wives and mothers.
God, America and family were the real stars of the convention, and Romney put a sharp point on the conservative outlook with everything from his discussion about his family’s struggles in his younger days to his direct challenge to Vladimir Putin: “Mr. Putin will see a little less ‘flexibility’ and more backbone.”
The RNC hammered home the point that President Obama has been an unmitigated disaster for the country. As Clint Eastwood said, “It’s a national disgrace.” Eastwood was talking to an empty chair representing the president. Very fitting.
Unfortunately, it will all just go over the heads of most liberals, whose DNC convention is up next in North Carolina.
The RNC had to deal with the threat of a passing hurricane. The DNC will bring its own hurricane with all the hot air that accompanies Democrats wherever they go.
The Occupy-whatever crowd, the Code Pinkos in their vagina costumes and the entire drug-addled, aged hippie crowd that couldn’t get through security at the RNC will be running the show at the DNC.
Expect endless tirades about a GOP “War on Women” and opposition to gay “marriage” (“The Other War on Women”), accusations of racism, how the GOP is really to blame for everything wrong with the country. Oh, and don’t forget the scheduled two-hour Muslim opening prayer, intended to capture the essence of Obama’s America.
Obama and the DNC really don’t have anything to run on, record-wise, so expect a lot of long-winded explanations about how Obama inherited our current mess and how Romney is rich and you’re not.
The one highlight that might make the DNC bearable is if they let Joe Biden talk off-script. He’s always a hoot.
As Eastwood said, “We all know Biden is the intellect of the Democratic Party. Kind of a grin with a body behind it.”
