Obama tells us that the Republican Party is the challenge because it is mired in the past. If by the past Obama means America’s wealth and greatness, then he is correct. If he is given another four years, America’s greatness will be lost and a superpower will be eviscerated.
Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul is gaining ground in his uphill battle to making his voice heard at the Republican National Convention despite being written off by the Party establishment. Last weekend in Nevada and in Maine, Paul’s ardent supporters were able to secure delegate blocs.
President Barack Obama feels emboldened. He’s sensing victory in November, so he’s beginning to telegraph the way “Forward.” Obama’s freshly revealed campaign slogan is a word with strong ties to Marxism and socialism.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R-Tea Party sellout) donned his big-boy britches Wednesday and unveiled a hawkish foreign policy that surely endeared him to the military-industrial complex. Rubio unveiled “new proposals on foreign policy” at the Brookings Institution that sound like more of the same empire building and interventionism.
Conservatives have repeatedly been forced to hold their noses and cast ballots for candidates who are only marginally better than the shrieking liberals whom they oppose. As a result of our own excessive flexibility, we have unwittingly played a part in allowing an incremental shift in the Republican Party away from its conservative roots and toward the sort of monster-government espoused by the Democrats and their hordes of dependent minions.
Some conservatives have expressed concerns that a second term for President Barack Obama means a chance for the President, who will no longer face reelection, to force radical, unpopular “change” upon the United States. A statement the President made on Monday may fuel those concerns.
Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul is continuing to battle the establishment and moving along through the primary season despite efforts to quiet his message of liberty. During his appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” on Tuesday, Paul said he is counting on a brokered convention to gain some extra delegates from Mitt Romney.
The evidence is in: Ron Paul has almost no chance of becoming the Republican Presidential nominee. But the way in which the candidate has shaped the primary season is much more of a story than his campaign’s failure to win Republican beauty contest popular votes throughout the Nation. A vote for Paul, even this late in the game, is not a throwaway.
Ron Paul’s Presidential campaign has responded to media speculation that Paul has built an alliance with Mitt Romney and that his son, Senator Rand Paul, may be under consideration for a Romney Vice Presidential pick. The answers are no and no.
Earlier this month via a video message, Obama announced the 2012 launch of African Americans for Obama, saying he didn’t believe there is a better time than Black History Month to kick off the initiative.
