“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week. “Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle.”
The only thing lacking for me in Clint's speech was the promise of a 357 Magnum in every pot!
(2) John Boehner presiding over the rule change vote: This video is a must-see and it serves as what may be the most embarrassing moment of the Republican National Convention. It seems clear to me that the "nays" are louder than the "yays" yet Speaker Boehner declares that "the yays have it". I hold the Republican Party to a higher standard so this was truly a disgraceful moment.
3) Conservative Women: I firmly believe that strong, conservative women (and a few good men) will make the difference in this country. While network television refused to broadcast some of these speeches, I would encourage you to take a few minutes to listen to their words. Especially poignant is Mia Love's personal story and speech here. Mrs. Love is the daughter of immigrant parents and a candidate for U.S. Congress from Utah. Susanna Martinez, first female Hispanic governor in the U.S., may have provided the funniest convention moment in describing how she discovered she was a Republican (starts at 5 minutes, 25 seconds). She also has a unique personal story with a record of good governing. Governor Martinez's speech is here. Delegates also heard from South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley who reiterated the "We Built It" theme and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice who recounted everything from September 11th events to growing up in "Jim Crow Alabama".
Strong conservative women scare the bejeebers out of liberals, so much so that all tolerance goes out the window. My friend, Adrienne Ross over at Motivation Truth, documented the vile blowback from hate-filled liberals in her blog entries entitled "Liberals Call Mia Love a "House Nigger" After Her Rousing RNC Speech and Black Liberals Label Condoleezza Rice an "Uncle Tom" After Her RNC Speech; Language Warning. It gives one pause when you consider the glass ceilings these minority women have shattered yet just because they are conservative thinkers and liberals disagree with their ideas about how government should be run, they are viciously attacked with the vilest of words. It's so bad that even a self-professed Democratic gospel singer who provided entertainment at the RNC was not immune to their attacks. See Liberals Heap Hate On Gospel Singer BeBe Winans for Singing at RNC. So much for the "new civility" eh?
1) The Democratic party decided to remove the word "God" from their platform as well as recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Multiple stories are here, here, and here, After a public outcry there was an amendment to the platform and by watching this video you can listen to the language of the amended platform statement. Chair of the Democratic Convention, Antonio Villaraigosa, is clearly stunned that on three different occasions the delegates deny God with their "no vote" and in the end, amid the boos, Villaraigosa declares the vote in the affirmative for the change in platform language even though it is clear that the delegates' voice vote was a resounding "no". Did I just hear a cock crow?
2) Cheering for abortion: Disguised in speeches with terminology such as "pro-choice", the Democratic platform calls for abortion on-demand, for any reason, up to the moment of birth, regardless of ability to pay. I suppose this would otherwise be known as "taxpayer funded abortions". Democratic Platform document here. Mainstream media commentary on the Tuesday night speeches celebrating abortion rights here and here.
3) Cardinal Timothy Dolan: As with the RNC, Cardinal Dolan offered his services to the DNC citing that he did not want to appear partisan; however, he was initially blown off by President Obama. It seems that Dolan's offer was reconsidered by the DNC and he went on to deliver a meaningful closing prayer. Complete text here. The average person would listen to or read Cardinal Dolan's prayer and consider it to be beautiful and uplifting, providing inspiration for an individual to be the best person they can be while being reminded of the blessings this great nation has been afforded. Dolan's prayer was apparently so offensive that NBC decided to immediately cut away which did not go unnoticed, especially on Twitter. Then, there was the "problem" of Cardinal Dolan praying for the unborn which was contradictory to the Democratic Platform (see above).
Thus do we praise you for the gift of life. Grant us the courage to defend it, life, without which no other rights are secure. We ask your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected.
Seems innocent enough, right? Once again, haters took to the internet using the foulest of language to absolutely excoriate Cardinal Dolan for not only his prayer but his mere presence at the DNC.
On more than one occasion I've had conversations with friends and we all tend to agree that what's happening in our country is not merely a political battle but instead, there's a spiritual battle that is being waged. Pray for our leaders daily and pray that your own eyes be open to truth wherever that truth leads you.

Inspiring and motivating grassroots activists, Sarah Palin took to the stage as keynote speaker for the 2012 CPAC Convention where she was not only heckled by Occupy Wall Street members but was also given at least twelve standing ovations by convention attendees. Palin, in her own unique way, took care of the hecklers along with a little help from the audience.
Like no other conservative, Palin gives the kind of speech that makes the listener want to hang on every word. Never one to sugarcoat the problems our nation faces, Palin offers time-tested conservative truths to solve these problems along with a dose of much-needed optimism for the future. Her evident love of country is clearly articulated in her impassioned words.
I was part of that 2012 CPAC audience and you can view my initial impressions here.
Remember the cheers, the electricity in the air? What about the pride that radiated in the faces of her parents,Chuck and Sally Heath? Remember finding out after the fact that Palin's teleprompter screen went black at which time she was forced to continue delivering that acceptance speech and did so without missing a beat? Following is the video of Governor Sarah Palin's acceptance speech from 4 years ago. Watch it and you'll fondly remember why you started supporting Sarah Palin and still do so today.

I’m sorry Fox cancelled all my scheduled interviews tonight because I sure wanted to take the opportunity on the air to highlight Senator John McCain’s positive contributions to America, to honor him, and to reflect on what a biased media unfairly put him through four years ago tonight. Granted, our honored and esteemed war hero has gone through much more than the liberal media can ever do to him in their efforts to harm this patriot. I look forward to hearing his words to his fellow Americans tonight more than any of the other convention speeches. God bless John McCain. Thank you for everything. And happy birthday, my friend.

From Hannity's website:
Sean is live from Tampa! Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. Michele Bachmann, Sen. Rob Portman and Sarah Palin talk Romney-Ryan ticket, GOP convention and more tonight on 'Hannity'
According to the conference schedule, Palin will be giving the keynote address to the conference attendees on Saturday, October 27th at 7:20 p.m.
From the Jefferson Companies Investment Conference website:
The speakers we have assembled for the 2012 New Orleans Investment Conference continue our long tradition of assembling the best and the brightest from the worlds of finance, economics and politics.
True to the principles of our founder, Jim Blanchard, our chosen speakers share a common belief in the power of free markets, sound money and personal freedom. They are people who have reached the pinnacles of their professions and on whom institutional and private investors willingly lavish millions of dollars in consulting and advisory fees.
Sarah Palin first made history on December 4, 2006 when she was sworn in as the first female governor of Alaska. In August 2008, Senator John McCain tapped Palin to serve as his vicepresidential running mate in his presidential campaign, making her the first woman to run on the Republican Party's presidential ticket.
In Alaska, her top priorities included fiscal restraint, limiting the size of government, resource development, education, equitable oil valuation as well as transportation and infrastructure development. Palin fought for ethics reform and transparency in government.
Under her leadership as Governor, Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding and protected Alaska's natural resources. She created Alaska's Petroleum Systems Integrity Office to provide oversight and maintenance of oil and gas equipment, facilities and infrastructure and the Climate Change Subcabinet to prepare a climate change strategy for Alaska.
During Governor Palin's first year in office, three of her administration's major proposed pieces of legislation passed—an overhaul of the state's ethics laws, a competitive process to construct a natural gas pipeline and a restructuring of Alaska's oil valuation formula.
Sarah Heath Palin arrived in Alaska with her family in 1964, when her parents came to teach school in Skagway. She received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communications-Journalism from the University of Idaho in 1987.
Palin is a contributor for FOX News where she offers her political commentary and analysis across all FOX News platforms, including FOX Business Channel, FOXNews.com and FOX News Radio. She also participates in special event political programming for FOX Broadcasting.
She is the author of The New York Times best-selling books, Going Rogue: An American Life (November 2009) and America by Heart (November 2010) and was named to TIME magazine's 2010 "100 Most Influential People" list and to Forbes magazine's 2011 "The World's 100 Most Powerful Women" list. She was the host of Sarah Palin's Alaska on TLC.
