Big T Pic of the Day

A Unified and Energized Convention!!!

RNC Coverage Day 3

The Base of this Party is Energized! What a night! This was just awesome! The convention hall was already filled with energy from Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani, who gave great speeches, and then Sarah Palin came out and blew the rafters off!

It was a great night to be a Republican, better night to be a conservative. Sarah Palin has brought Reagan conservatism back to the party! She made a connection with the base of this party that has not been felt since Reagan and for the first time in my life I am fully energized, excited and 100 percent behind the Republican ticket!

Yes, it is true, I have voted Republican in every presidential election since Bob Dole, but it was always a vote against the other candidate more than it was a vote for a candidate. As most of you know I have had major problems with the Republican Party and John McCain for a while now. I didn’t even vote in the last midterm elections I was so upset. It was the first time in my life I have not voted in an election, and I was seriously considering voting for Libertarian Bob Parr out of protest to Republicans. Not anymore…Sarah Palin has changed that for me.

Sarah Palin is Bringing Reagan Conservatism Back!

44 years ago a Hollywood actor named Ronald Reagan walked up to the podium of the Republican National Convention and delivered a speech forever known as “the speech” in support of Barry Goldwater rejuvenating a dieing party and launching his political career that would lead him to the White House for 8 years.

For years the base of the Republican Party has waited in frustration for someone to bring back the platform of Reagan conservative values to the party that were abandoned in favor of the republican elitists moving the party to the middle leaving the party split, divided and dieing.

A lot of conservatives had given up on their fruitless search for a new Reagan to emerge and fight against the elitist of their own party, the media and liberals, realizing the likes of Reagan was one of a kind never to be seen again.

We were wrong! Wednesday night at the RNC Alaska Governor Sarah Palin brought Reagan conservatism back in an electrifying speech, once again solidifying and energizing a dieing party. She sent a wave of Reagan’s spirit through the convention floor, addressing her critics in the media and attacking the Washington elitists in a humorous and inspiring rhetoric not seen since Reagan.

After John McCain announced Palin as his choice for VP running mate, a humorous frenzy spread across newsrooms across America. The sophisticated establishment of the media claimed disaster for McCain. A woman with five children, a lifetime NRA member gun toting moose hunter, clinging to Jesus, married to a snowmobile championship racer/fisherman and a pregnant 17-year-old daughter resonated the phrases “white trash” or “trailer park trash” in their minds.

The media then set out to destroy her trying to define Palin to the public as a dangerous religious fanatic from the back woods with little experience incapable of being a heartbeat away from the presidency.

It is the same media and liberal elitists who laugh and attack Sarah Palin as trailer trash that categorized Ronald Reagan as an amiable dunce more than 20 years ago. They labeled him as a mere simpleton, a Hollywood actor with a performance that fooled America. They were never able to believe or accept a graduate of Eureka College and not one of their Ivy League colleagues was representing America on the world stage.

Ronald Reagan never let the contempt of the cultural, literary and journalistic elites bother him. He simply spoke over their heads directly to the American people. In Sarah Palin, we have a figure that showed us the capability of doing the same as she addressed her critics from the convention podium.

"I'm not a member of the permanent political establishment. And I've learned quickly, these past few days, that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone.

"But here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion; I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country."

The one thing Americans noticed the most from Palin was authenticity, something that goes right over the heads of the elitist beltway boys and media. Palin’s qualities of being a beauty queen, gun toting, moose hunting, mother of five, member of the Assembly of God Church and a serious reformer of corrupt politics baffles the ivy league sophisticated. They just can’t comprehend ordinary Americans, never have.

Palin is the ultimate All-American girl with an All-American family. She is powerful, but down to Earth, a reformer not afraid to rock the boat, and just like Reagan, she was able to communicate, connect and capture the minds and hearts of Americans and rejuvenate a dieing party Wednesday night.

Peggy Noonan Caught Bashing Palin on Hot Mic

It was just recently the Rev. Jesse Jackson was caught saying harsh words of Obama, on a hot mic now we have a conservative victim to a hot mic.

Don’t these people know every mic is supposed to be treated as hot or live?
Anyways, after an interview, Republican consultant Mike Murphy and Wall Street Journalist columnist Peggy Noonan were caught on a hot mic bashing Sarah Palin.

“It’s over,” Noonan said. The most qualified? (talking about Palin) No. I think they went for this — excuse me— political bullsh** about narratives," she said. "Every time Republicans do that... because that's not where they live and it's not what they're good at and they blow it." Murphy then addded: "The greatness of McCain is no cynicism, and this is cynical."

Wow…that really makes me think differently about Peggy Noonan. Not because of her opinion on Palin, but because she writes the exact opposite in her columns…Hypocrite…and shameful.

Liberman Puts Country First Over Political Career

No surprise here. Joe Lieberman is under fire from his Democrat colleagues after giving a prime time speech at the Republican National Convention. The Obama campaign stated after the speech that Liberman “proved a long time ago he’s not a Democrat any longer, and last night he reminded everyone he’s not even a man of his word any longer.”

Lieberman is an independent, but still caucuses with the Democrats and is the chairman of Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, but now finds those positions in jeopardy. A spokesman for Harry Reid says that “it’s likely” the Democrats will caucus after the election to decide the fate of Joe Lieberman in the Senate.

“He has every right to make a partisan speech at the Republican National Convention if that is what he wants to do…Having said that, that doesn’t give him the right to question Obama’s role and record in the Senate in the speech,” said the spokesman.

I guess just by mere disagreement with Obama makes you a liar, and how dare he question the “messiah,” this is no doubt blasphemy. Perhaps they will burn Lieberman at the stake.
Maybe Lieberman has no right to bring up his record, but how about duty to expose Obama as the leftist he is? Lieberman put his country first in front of his political future. I hope McCain rewards him with a cabinet seat in his administration if he wins.

Big T's Suggested Reading and Viewing from around the Web

Ronald Reagan’s son Michael Reagan says his dad was reborn Wednesday night only this time he is a she. That would be Sarah Palin.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson was hospitalized for stomach pains last night. If I were a Democrat, I would have stomach pains too after watching Sarah Palin’s speech.
Here is an article from a fellow Alaskan about how Sarah Palin handled corruption in her state.
This just in: Peggy Noonan tries to explain her remarks, and says that what's "over" is not McCain's campaign, but that what's over is the truth to the belief that "whatever the base of the Republican party thinks is what America thinks." OK…maybe, but I still have my doubts.
Islamic Jihadists have placed a 50,000-dollar bounty on John McCain’s spiritual advisor, Pastor Rod Parsley’s head.
Isn’t this nice…Joe Biden promises if they win they’ll go through the Bush administration with “a fine tooth comb” and pursue criminal charges.
The Iraqis are planning to re-open the infamous Abu-Ghrahib…as a museum
Hollywood actor John Voight says MSNBC is “just a platform for…the left of the Democrat Party.” He also claims there are more conservatives in Hollywood than one might think.
Here is a photo of a new voting block for the Democrat Party…priceless.
