This year’s CPAC was full of surprises. Every year, the candidate who won the straw poll, usually went on to win the nomination for the party, but this year, Karl Rove has his work cut out for him–it was the libertarian Rand Paul who won—Marco Rubio came in second, probably due to the fact that Ann Coulter ripped him to shreds about his immigration issues. As great as Rubio is: he is on board with amnesty, which would make him a good VP for Jeb Bush, and as Ann pointed out, you get amnesty, you get democrats forever more.
I bet Rubio didn’t see that coming. Nobody can steamroll you like Ann.
Already this morning Karl Rove was on some talk show, telling everyone that Rand Paul just got lucky and took a propitious moment doing the filibuster, because Eric Holder screwed up by not answering his questions on drones, and he ran with it. Karl thought it was smart, but then he went on another one of his famous Rove attacks. Why, nobody knows that Rand Paul would have arrested Anwar Al-Awlaki instead of killing him with a drone. Americans, don’t know how bad Rand Paul would be on protecting us.
I’ve heard Rand Paul talk about this incident, and he has said time and again that he is not against using drones in a war zone..but when the 16-year-old, Abdulrahman Al-Awlaki, was also killed in the attack, Jay Carney had this to say about it, and Rand Paul didn’t like it much:
“I would suggest that you should have a far more responsible father if they are truly concerned about the well being of their children. I don’t think becoming an al Qaeda jihadist terrorist is the best way to go about doing your business.”
I listened to the speakers most of the day while I was cleaning my house.. all of them were good, some were boring. The crowd to me looked very small, and you have to wonder how much it costs to go there, rent a hotel, buy tickets…I know I couldn’t afford it. Republicans don’t bus people in.
Sarah Palin was amazing in her speech and form. She is becoming adept at being a great speaker, and no doubt will make most of her living off of it. She mixed the Big Gulp with the “I got the rack” joke. She was a real hit, but did she put her name in the straw poll?
No. Sarah has no intention of running. And then, after Sarah, came my favorite, Phyllis Schlafly, the grand old lady…walking slow, proud, she almost reminded me of the great Ronald Reagan. I first learned about her through Ann Coulter. To me, this woman is right up there with Margaret Thatcher. No, she never ran for office, but she has done great things for America…
Listen to this speech, it’s a winner! (start at 1.35 and skip the jokes if you like.)
Like the great Ronald Reagan, Mrs. Schlafly is a real fighter, and like Reagan she speaks with a clear, voice of reason.
She, more than anybody there…had it right. (In my Nobody Opinion)
There IS a fight for the heart and soul of the Republican party right now. This last loss was worst than the rest and Phyllis Schlafly hit the Rhino’s where it hurts. It’s probably the reason you can’t find her speech on YouTube. (I couldn’t.)
She called every one of the Republican nominees in the last decade a “bunch of losers.” And then she pointed out, who is keeping those losers at the top. Karl Rove.
“We need to have the grass roots take over these bunch of losers.”
And if there is an Rhino enemy list: in my mind, Karl Rove is right at the top, . Now, when I see Karl Rove on TV, I turn Fox off. If we all did that, sooner or later FOX would get him off of there. According to Phyllis, Karl had 400 millions to spend, on 31 candidates and he only won 7 races.
If CNN and MSNBC, are working for the Democrats, FOX has way too much time given to Karl Rove, who basically lost the last election for us. I don’t think he wanted Romney to win. If he comes out promoting Jeb Bush, then odds are, Romney’s loss was no big deal to him.
Of course the libs are already making fun of CPAC. One guy said it was as if he was watching some old outdated Moose lodge fraternity meeting. And really, that’s how they defeat us. The main points everyone made throughout the day was none of them were good at getting the message across.
The real problem is: The Republican message is very weak.
Nobody Suggests: We give Rand some help. I have been blaming George W. Bush for Obama being elected: It seems, I have been blaming the wrong person: It’s Karl Rove we need to get rid of.
Paul Rand did a good job yesterday filibustering on the Senate floor to make the point— that the fact that the President can use drones on American soil to kill just anybody he wants to, without permission from anyone, is unconstitutional and he is dead right. I didn’t see it, but by all accounts it was wonderful.
So today Nobody Wonders why the whole Senate was not there giving him support…but instead, having dinner with the President?
Old guard Republicans were having dinner with the President. Let that sink in.
Nobody Also Wonders if George W. Bush would be supporting drone attacks on people here on our soil. Would he agree with the old Rhino’s? You bet he would.
Today, the established RHINO’s John McCain and Lindsey Graham have come out to ostracized Paul Rand for pulling such a stunt. They treated him as if he were a mere frat boy pulling a prank.
“The country needs more senators who care about liberty, but if Mr. Paul wants to be taken seriously he needs to do more than pull political stunts that fire up impressionable libertarian kids in their college dorms. He needs to know what he’s talking about,” said Mr. McCain, Republicans’ presidential nominee in 2008.
Well gee…now we’re not even allowed to question. (Oh…term limits…term limits…term limits…term limits….)
And while the Rhino’s in the Senate are busy attacking the last lone guard to the Constitution, today we get the spiffy message that Dennis Rodman just made little Kim Jung Um madder. He is just dying to use his nukes:
“North Korea threatened to launch a preemptive nuclear strike on its “aggressors,” including the U.S., ahead of a United Nations vote on tougher sanctions against the totalitarian state for last month’s atomic A foreign ministry spokesman said: “Since the United States is about to ignite a nuclear war, we will be exercising our right to pre-emptive nuclear attack against the headquarters of the aggressor in order to protect our supreme interest.”
Nobody Wonders how Senators can be so angry at a true patriotic Senator trying to hold back the tyrannical erosion of American liberties, and yet— be so silent about a man who has said he is going to nuke us?
And is the reason they are so bent on having killer drones over America is because they (Being the Rhino’s and the democrats who seem to be now one party) decided long ago to let millions of Mexicans flood the country to “fix our old-age population problem” thereby deciding the risk was worth the cost of letting in dangerous citizens from other countries with nuclear weapons?
Nobody Wonders every single day….if they are already here?
Or do they just want the power to rule as tyrants? And once again, Obama stays silent on a country with nukes threatening every single day to use them. Instead, he is planning another vacation.
Obama is the enemy we know. But John McCain is turning out to be a traitor. Maybe all those years in prison turned John into a sympathizer with his prison guards…a sympathizer with communism..
John McCain is starting to look like Jane Fonda…all he needs…is a boob job.
Why Fox news, or any news outlet for that matter, did NOT post this response to Obama’s State of the Union speech last night.
Obviously, FOX news, who has Dana Perino, Bush’s old press secretary, and Karl Rove, Bush’s old adviser, on every single day, and they are there to promote the established Rhino’s.
Marco Rubio did a fine job last night, and it was obvious that he was setting himself up for the Republican ticket in 2016, but since he had the help of Jeb Bush in Florida, many people including myself, are afraid of the “Will Rubio become a Rhino after election?” because we have been so burned by the Bush family. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Bush/Rubio ticket.
Rand Paul to me, is the most honest….and I’m not sure if he was taking about the TEA PARTY, or the Replication party here… It was a bit confusing since he IS a Republican. But here is not doubt, the party is split. The Rhino’s no longer represent the “people” or the Constitution, and so that is why Karl Rove is fighting along with the liberals to smash them altogether. It’s all about the power.
The speech was worth the watch…so for those who care…here it is.
This weeks winner is Rand Paul…for given Hillary Clinton the most aggravating 5 minutes of her otherwise mostly lovely day in Congress. If you don’t have time to watch any of the proceedings, trust me…this is the only moment worth repeating.
Nobody Thinks it’s very sad that Rand Paul is the only Congressman delivering this message to us…telling us just how far our rights have been taken away, without even much of a peep. And I got this in an email or I would have missed it.
Yes, we are being censored, photographed, spied on, and watched with creepy Big Brother eyes, and we don’t even know it, —-OR think about it much, do we?
Recently I downloaded Google Crome and I couldn’t even put up a post on WordPress. I was thinking it was WordPress…but no…I took off Google Crome and was back in business. I can’t help but wonder if I was being ‘tea party censored’ or it was a computer thing. I suspect, both.
Anyway, I thouight Rand’s message was an important one. So—Rand wins the ‘Nobody’s Fool’ award of the week!
(If I had a lot of money…I’d send him some!)
