During Rudy Giuliani’s speech at the Republican National Convention tonight, the crowd got so stirred up on the oil drilling issue, they interrupted his speech for a couple of minutes while they chanted (I believe):
“Drill, Baby, Drill!”
It was another inspiring moment produced spontaneously by a group who clearly believe we should use and manage the resources that we own to take care of our country, instead of allowing other foreign interests squeeze us and manipulate us as they control the flow of energy that we need.
Drill, Baby, Drill!!!…
Tonight’s speech by Sarah Palin was a smashing hit!
It was truly inspiring and gave me, and clearly the convention delegates, an even stronger sense of confidence that we will win in November.
Palin hit hard against the liberal media and Democrats who have been attacking her since Friday.
She provided an excellent case for the McCain/Palin ticket.
And she showed that she’s not the naive backwater girl that many would like you to think she is.
Following Rudy Giuliani’s speech, which itself was solid and inspiring, Palin brought what looked to me like the perfect politician: sensitive, knowledgeable, kind, and yet strong, agressive, and ready to strike where needed.
As Bithead states this evening, it’s no wonder the left is scared that they …
This had been a disconcerting election year so far, and certainly we still have a long road ahead, but the state of the Democratic Party, and the latest Gallup Poll, are giving me reason to smile today.
Democrats really don’t know what they want any longer. They’ve found themselves stuck with either a chronic liar, or worse yet, a huge unknown.
Hillary has now found herself in the position where many party leaders are finding it difficult to back her up on her “misstatement” about running from sniper fire while visiting Bosnia as First Lady (Peggy Noonan has a great assessment of Clinton’s current political state of affairs). It’s interesting to watch the party suddenly stare in shell-shocked disbelief.
And although Obama is …
… by announcing he won’t run for President.
What a non-announcement. I think I should probably announce that I’m not running for president as well. How about you? Have you announced yet?
Bloomberg said in a New York Times op-ed piece, titled “I’m Not Running for President, but …,” that he has listened carefully to those who encouraged him to make a bid for the White House but that he is not and will not be a candidate for president.
I know he’s an independent, but what can he really add? He’s always living in Giuliani’s shadow, and running for president would be one more example of that.
Oh well, nice of him to let us know.
And I appreciate the update from my …
It’s been a busy day in politics…
John Edwards has apparently been paying attention to our suggestions. He has decided to drop out of the race leaving no endorsement (yet). Any bets on who that helps?
Rudy Giuliani also has departed, providing an endorsement to John McCain. Nice. Most people seem to agree that McCain is not as conservative as Romney, just like the Easter Bunny isn’t as real as Santa Claus (most people can at least say they’ve had a conversation with Santa, not with the Bunny). Hucklebee is apparently the only one waiting for an official invitation to leave (Ron Paul hasn’t spent all his money yet, so we may be stuck with him longer than Nader).
Speaking of Ralph Nader, it …
John McCain appears to have won the Florida Primary. The good news is that Ron Paul only got 3 percent of the vote… still too high, but an improvement on prior states.
What’s funny is that Giuliani (15 percent) did considerably better than Paul, and yet Rudy will likely step aside tomorrow, while who knows hold long Paul will clutch his millions of campaign money to carry on with his ridiculous positions (on most things) and the continued weight of his past making him look like a messed-up Monroe/Hitler wanna-be.
McCain takes a lead in the delegate count, but there’s still a long way to go. I’m still not ready to express support post-Fred, but I won’t wait until it’s inevitable (or, as at least …
