We need to stop apologizing about stemming the tide of entitlement mind-set that’s out there. We ought to be proud of our efforts to give local parents and communities a say on how their children are educated, protecting that fundamental right of private property ownership. Our party cannot be all things to all people. It can’t be. And our loudest opponents on the left are never gonna like us so let’s quit trying to curry favor with ’em!
-Governor Rick Perry at the American Conservative Conference in New Orleans-
It is amazing how the liberal media is totally baffled at what Governor Perry said there in New Orleans. They felt like they were aliens to what Perry was talking about. In other words, Rick Perry is not of this world. He doesn’t speak the way we do. The media is saying that we do not want another person from Texas, because they are too close to President Bush. We do not want another Bush.
This is the silly season going into orgasms. This quote above is from this weekend from Governor Rick Perry of Texas, talking about what the Republican party needs to do. And the liberals do not like this. This is not all Governor Perry said either. He was on fire.
GOV. PERRY: Let’s speak with pride about our morals and our values and redouble our effort to elect more conservative Republicans. Let’s stop this American downward spiral!
This administration in Washington that’s in power now clearly believes that government is not only the answer to every need, but it’s the most qualified to make essential decisions for every American in every area. That mix of arrogance and audacity that guides the Obama administration is an affront to every freedom loving American and a threat to every private sector job in this country.
Will history view us as the generation of Americans that kinda collectively shrugged their shoulders and said, “I guess there’s nothing that I can do? Will we just watch our nation continue this slow backwards slide? Will future generations of Americans living a life without any direction or decision that’s not made by some bureaucrat wonder: “Why didn’t somebody do something?” I’ve got more confidence in America’s energy and character. I totally believe it’s time to reconnect with the greatest attributes of our nation, to regain that resiliant spirit and recapture that love of freedom, remembering its true price. We’re all facing the same challenges in America. I stand before you today a disciplined conservative Texan — a committed Republican and a proud American — united with you in the desire to restore our nation and revive the American dream.
Remember a few weeks ago how the left was talking about American exceptionalism, and how it is something that makes us arrogant and bad? Read this. More of what Governor Perry said:
PERRY: I see a stronger America, built on the solid foundation of spiritual strength, of individual liberty, of self-determination. We must recapture that vision and begin the hard work of lighting the way for millions of Americans who are adrift in the sea of economic misery. Let’s lead ’em to the safe harbor of American renewal and the shores of American exceptionalism. (applause.)
And you can hear the left going insane over this. The ‘audacity of Perry to say American exceptionalism is good!’ Here is a montage of the left media going crazy over this:
F. CHUCK TODD: I’ve had, quietly, some Republicans say Rick Perry is just a little too Texan —
F. CHUCK TODD: — this close to Bush.
SCARBOROUGH: That’s Rick Perry doing George W. Bush.
BURTON: Rick Perry is a pretty extreme version of George W. Bush.
GIGOT: Is the country, particularly those northern suburbs, ready for another Texan after eight years of George W. Bush?
Bush has been gone for almost two years now and he is all the media can talk about. What Conservative would get away with doing that to a former Democrat after two years of a Republican if things weren’t going good? I can tell you this, no one would. No one on the left would allow this. They only allow it when they feel it may help their cause. But this time it won’t, mainly because of the fact that the mainstream media is no longer the mainstream media but the lamestream media. The mainstream media has changed hands and is now in the hands of things like Breitbart TV, Big Government.com, Rush Limbaugh and other Conservative outlets. Thanks be to God for that.
But the lamestream media just doesn’t get it. They continue on with their mantra no matter how out of touch everyone knows they are.
From the Scarbourough morning show on MSNBC came this between Mika Brzenzinski, co-host Willie Geist and Mark Halperin, the TIME Magazine editor-at-large having this conversation about Rick Perry:
BRZEZINSKI: I watched this, I felt like an alien watching this —
BRZEZINSKI: — from the audience —
SCARBOROUGH: Felt like an alien?
BRZEZINSKI: I did. I felt like an alien.
REPORTER: What do you mean? I don’t get it.
BRZEZINSKI: Well, this was the Republican leadership conference in New Orleans.
BRZEZINSKI: The crowd was chanting, “Ruuuun, Rick, run!”
SCARBOROUGH: You know, I — I think I saw this guy on Broadway.
GEIST: One man show.
SCARBOROUGH: What was it called?
HALPERIN: Uhhh, “Thank you, America?”
GEIST: You’re welcome.
HALPERIN: You’re welcome.
SCARBOROUGH: That’s right, Will Ferrell doing George W. Bush.
Now to me, and I know to most “mainstream” Americans this is hilarious. Hilarious that the media is this far out of touch with what the American people really want. They really have no clue as to what is really on the minds of the American people.
One of things that shows just how out of touch the left and the media is, Gannett Papers are laying off thousands of people this week because of the lethargic advertising that they have had. That in itself should show just how out of touch the left in this country is.
As for Rick Perry being an alien? I know I’d vote for him.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans. And Bless us to start using more common sense.
