I called the RNC in DC today and gave them my take on their spineless, gutless stand on the destruction of our country. I added my thoughts on the AuschwitzCare aka DeathCare.

Please call and give Mr. Steele and Company your thoughts at:

J V giving a recap of how The One ascended to power. I will be listening carefully to see if any acknowledgment is made of McCain’s execrable campaign.

I LOVE how he just characterized the rise of The One and how Pres. Bush was demonized in spite of keeping us safe.

“My most pressing issue at this moment is the safety of Israel.”

Go Jon!

He’s giving red meat to the pubbies ... pray they have the spine to pick up his passion and rally against this “Obama Oppression.”

.... “false prophet, Obaba”

Waiting to hear the WH response.

*will they say he’s over the hill ?

*will they call on Angie to rein in her father ?

*will they try to personally destroy him ?

An RNC Dinner, eh? That ought to bring in a crowd of a couple dozen, I would guess. And only because Jon Voigt is the featured speaker.

John Voight gave conservatives plenty of red meat; unfortunately the GOP members of Congress are treating Obama like they will dead meat with the MSM if they do not kowtow to Obama.

OK. It was an obscenity laden tirade on free markets and where to find their cajones. Here's what I told them verbatim....

With a few exceptions, most politicians are unprincipled. Most are self-serving, interested in being re-elected and being in power first and the health of the Nation a distant second. In fact, their actions (votes) in many cases are un-American. If it is good politically, chances are it is bad policy for the Country. Just review where we are today. ‘Another day older and deeper in debt and owe my soul to the company store’. as the song goes.

Sarah was terrific! As usual she responded in clear, unambiguous terms. This grand lady feels the exact same way about the American people as Reagan, and even Thomas Jefferson, did. And their love for our country is, or was, in the case of the late former Presidents, pure and unabashed.

That's great news. Did she stop the populist schtick and start espousing conservatism? I have to see this. I'll check it out in a few minutes.

From everything I have read about Sarah Palin I believe her to be one of the few who put her principles first and did the right thing for her state and her country.

Don’t go. If you leave, everyone will. : ) At least come back when they’re through with dinner. Aren’t you curious about what gingrich is going to say? I’m hoping he heard what Rush said to him today.

When Newt was introduced, he received a lukewarm reception.

Newt then thanked Sarah and Todd for coming and the crowd went wild.

She is a once in a lifetime figure with the power to change the world. I hear she is a voracious reader. Please tell me she read the work of Milton Friedman in the last 8 months.

He does well when speaking to Republicans. Not so much when he’s trying to curry favor with the left. He has that need to be liked by the State Media.
