It's a Speech Worth a Trillion Words Thing

Dear America,

"I accept the duty to help lead our nation out of a jobs crisis and back to prosperity – and I know we can do this.

I accept the calling of my generation to give our children the America that was given to us, with opportunity for the young and security for the old – and I know that we are ready.

Our nominee is sure ready. His whole life has prepared him for this moment – to meet serious challenges in a serious way, without excuses and idle words.  After four years of getting the run-around, America needs a turnaround, and the man for the job is Governor Mitt Romney."

and so it begins, day two of the convention, with our Vice Presidential candidate taking center stage [full transcript].

"I’m the newcomer to the campaign, so let me share a first impression.  I have never seen opponents so silent about their record, and so desperate to keep their power.

They’ve run out of ideas.  Their moment came and went. Fear and division are all they’ve got left."

it's true.
Do you think we are gonna hear about all those "shovel ready" jobs putting Americans back to work or our precious tax dollars propping up unworthy green energy schemes, like Solyndra?

Are we going to hear about the "Affordable Care Act" double-counting 716 Billion dollars to cover for ObamaCare and Medicare at the same time or how [still] two-thirds of the population wants it repealed, in part or the whole entire thing?

Do you think we are going to hear him promote the "democratic process" of the Arab Spring -- now unraveling into chaos [again] after this administration intervened in Egypt, leaving the region wide open for the Muslim Brotherhood to continue the "caliphate process"?   and don't even get me started on the success rate we are seeing out of Iraq and Afghanistan....Or, bringing in an entirely new subject, how Israel is being surrounded by those who simply hate them -- on the verge of war any day now while America walks by their side, for all intents and purposes, utterly silent...  [See also the Condi Rice Speech of just last night in reference to all of the above...Hold up...Let me get that for you....Go here]

Do you think we are going to hear about that stellar unemployment rate -- which, we were assured, would be held to 8% or lower, if we passed the president's stimulus bill?  An unemployment rate that went to TEN before inching back down again -- an unemployment rate that isn't even adjusting for those of us under-employed or who have simply stopped looking for work; all for a stimulus that began at a cost of 767 BILLION dollars, only to rise to 862 BILLION dollars, only to really be more than that, considering our addiction to freemoney.com these days and costing us at a rate of 40 cents on every dollar.

But I digress.

Let's get back to the speech --

"So here’s the question: Without a change in leadership, why would the next four years be any different from the last four years?"

actually, we can only imagine that things, without a shred of doubt, will only get worse; without the concern to be "liked" -- without the worry of re-election in another four years -- this presidency is set to operate totally unhinged and unchecked.

What fuels this presidency?What is at the root of every presidential action, and sometimes in-action, thus far? What makes this leadership, this presidency, seem so foreign to the great majority of Americans?

It's called four more words:  Dreams FROM My Father.  Here's some background for you.

I really don't want to dwell on Obama's "memoir" -- I only wish to tie the narrative that got Obama elected in the first place to a little bit of what we heard last night from Paul Ryan...

"It all started off with stirring speeches, Greek columns, the thrill of something new.  Now all that’s left is a presidency adrift, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at a moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to sail on yesterday’s wind.

President Obama was asked not long ago to reflect on any mistakes he might have made.  He said, well, “I haven’t communicated enough.”  He said his job is to “tell a story to the American people” – as if that’s the whole problem here? He needs to talk more, and we need to be better listeners?

Ladies and gentlemen, these past four years we have suffered no shortage of words in the White House.  What’s missing is leadership in the White House.  And the story that Barack Obama does tell, forever shifting blame to the last administration, is getting old.  The man assumed office almost four years ago – isn’t it about time he assumed responsibility?"

WORDS have created or saved Barack Hussein Obama.  Lots and lots of words -- either his own or masterminded by like minds for the purpose of propaganda and deception.  And Paul Ryan hit this note more than once last night.

"Maybe the greatest waste of all was time. Here we were, faced with a massive job crisis – so deep that if everyone out of work stood in single file, that unemployment line would stretch the length of the entire American continent.  You would think that any president, whatever his party, would make job creation, and nothing else, his first order of economic business.

But this president didn’t do that.  Instead, we got a long, divisive, all-or-nothing attempt to put the federal government in charge of health care."
yes. this is a good point.

and it's topped off with a whole lot of common sense:

"They have no answer to this simple reality: 
We need to stop spending money we don’t have.

My Dad used to say to me: 
'Son.  You have a choice: 
You can be part of the problem, 
or you can be part of the solution.'

The present administration 
has made its choices.  
And Mitt Romney and I have made ours: 
Before the math and the momentum 
overwhelm us all, 
we are going to solve 
this nation’s economic problems.  

And I’m going to level with you: 
We don’t have that much time.  
But if we are serious, and smart, and we lead, we can do this.

After four years 
of government trying to divide up the wealth, 
we will get America creating wealth again. 
With tax fairness and regulatory reform, 
we’ll put government 
back on the side of the men and women 
who create jobs, 
and the men and women who need jobs."  

 Dividing things -- whether it be economics or demographics -- wealth, special interests or people -- is all Obama knows.   Obama never really got Dreams FROM his father -- that was pure illusion, pure spectacle, pure narrative, pure fraud.  Obama was -- and still is -- mentored and misguided mostly by his own love of self, getting major assists by suspect influences over the years:  Frank Marshall Davis, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, his stepfather Lolo Soetoro, Bill Ayers, Saul Alinsky...and the list can go on.

[Revision:   For more background on Obama's background, simply read today's post by Mark Alexander.  Located at one of a few of my favorite things: The Patriot Post -- Mark says so much more and so much better than me, but just gotta love the synchronized patriot spirits colliding.] 

What kind of an American president has these radical associations to back him up?

It was a good speech last night.  There is a whole lot more that can be said for it.

But all I really need to know [besides what I learned in kindergarten] is that I want the guy who got his best advice from his mom, who didn't become a small business owner until after going back to school in her fifties and ultimately creating a brand new life for herself following the American way ---- and from his dad, who said things like, "Son.  You have a choice: You can be part of the problem, or you can be part of the solution."

"I learned a good deal about economics, and about America, from the author of the Reagan tax reforms – the great Jack Kemp.  What gave Jack that incredible enthusiasm was his belief in the possibilities of free people, in the power of free enterprise and strong communities to overcome poverty and despair.   We need that same optimism right now.  And in our dealings with other nations, a Romney-Ryan administration will speak with confidence and clarity.  Wherever men and women rise up for their own freedom, they will know that the American president is on their side.  Instead of managing American decline, leaving allies to doubt us and adversaries to test us, we will act in the conviction that the United States is still the greatest force for peace and liberty that this world has ever known...
...None of us have to settle for the best this administration offers – a dull, adventureless journey from one entitlement to the next, a government-planned life, a country where everything is free but us.

Listen to the way we’re spoken to already, as if everyone is stuck in some class or station in life, victims of circumstances beyond our control, with government there to help us cope with our fate.

It’s the exact opposite of everything I learned growing up....
...When I was waiting tables, washing dishes, or mowing lawns for money, I never thought of myself as stuck in some station in life.  I was on my own path, my own journey, an American journey where I could think for myself, decide for myself, define happiness for myself.  That’s what we do in this country.  That’s the American Dream.  That’s freedom, and I’ll take it any day over the supervision and sanctimony of the central planners. " 

Central planners, central banking, central redistribution of wealth, central economic divide between the haves and the have-nots, central engineering of a false racial divide, central control and over-regulation in places where there should be none...this speaks of the dreams of Barack Obama.

Paul Ryan spelled it all out like a polished politician -- adding in his natural, boy-next-door, common man 'I drive a truck' fashion -- he propelled his entire audience from its shaky beginning, through jubilant fits and spurts, to moments feeling a surge of unexpected relief, all building to a rather raucous ending [because, after all WE BUILT IT! is the theme] saying:

"So here is our pledge.

We will not duck the tough issues, we will lead.

We will not spend four years blaming others, we will take responsibility.

We will not try to replace our founding principles, we will reapply our founding principles.

The work ahead will be hard.  These times demand the best of us – all of us, but we can do this.  Together, we can do this.

We can get this country working again.  We can get this economy growing again.  We can make the safety net safe again.  We can do this.

Whatever your political party, let’s come together for the sake of our country.  Join Mitt Romney and me.  Let’s give this effort everything we have.  Let’s see this through all the way.  Let’s get this done.

Thank you, and God bless."

We can do this -- oh yes we can.

Make it a Good Day, G

But my personal favorite-- and totally having nothing to do with anything important:

"We’re a full generation apart, Governor Romney and I.  And, in some ways, we’re a little different.  There are the songs on his iPod, which I’ve heard on the campaign bus     and on many hotel elevators....[laughter]   He actually urged me to play some of these songs at campaign rallies.  I said, I hope it’s not a deal-breaker Mitt, but my playlist starts with AC/DC, and ends with Zeppelin.[heavy metal laughter]"
