Time for every U.S. Conservative to stand solid behind their man

Mitt Romney

Unlike many on both sides of the Atlantic, I was not at all surprised by Mitt Romney’s performance on his first presidential debate. He is a business man who built and managed successful businesses and a governor who turned around his state’s bad economy and left it a success. His opponent on the other hand has never build or managed anything before becoming president and from the debate it was clear that has not changed during his four years in the White House.

Therefore, Romney doing well was not a shock nor was Obama doing poorly without a professionally prepared script and a teleprompter. To me, in that regard, the first debate was a nonevent!

However, what the debate did, which I think was quite significant, is bring to the forefront the true character of the two men. While Romney came across as warm, engaging and welling to answer all questions put to him. The President seemed forced and uneasy, at times even lazy and disengaged. He appeared as if he had to be somewhere else and was held back by the debate.

This debate also exposed the truth about a few media myths; the notion that Romney and his policies will disadvantage the middle classes, the disabled and seniors ……, were all quashed.

That is why I hope and think; Republicans should unashamedly capitalise on these revelations and build on them. They should also 100% rally around their candidate, put to one side all their ‘detailed’ differences (because fundamentally a conservative is a conservative) and focus primarily on winning the presidential election.

And keep in mind, a Romney win is no small potatoes, just as a second term of Obama will have some serious irreversible consequences to the America we all know, love and admire so much.

The cost is too high for Conservatives to squabble amongst themselves and overlook the bigger picture. Therefore, my fellow conservatives, I urge you, use this surge, build on it to put Mitt Romney in the White House this November.

And PS, don’t let the latest jobless figures (drop from 8.1% to 7.8%) distract you, putting aside their opportune timing, the number of people on Food Stamps is still alarmingly high and continuous to rise.

God Bless you all and God Bless America

Still early days, but Romney - Ryan looks like the winning ticket.

Posted 12 Aug 2012 by Walaa Idris

It seems Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney have hit the jackpot picking Paul Ryan as his running mate. And although, in some circles, Ryan’s selection was anticipated, it still came as a surprise. It was a pleasant surprises for those on the right, specially the Tea Party Movement supporters, but unpleasant for the Democrats.

Paul Ryan, a Wisconsin Congressman is a daring choice in more ways than one. He is a policy man, an entitlement reformer, young (only 42 year old) and very bold. His selection has definitely invigorated the US presidential race and as surprises go, his pick could be the last big surprise until the outcome of the election itself. Of course in-between now and then, there will be a few gaffs plus the usual memorable moments here and there. But Obama is unlikely to drop Joe Biden form his ticket just as the Democrats are unlikely to drop him from theirs.

A great sign of things to come is how Republican supporters showed their approval of his pick, by stuffing the Romney – Ryan campaign chest. In less than four hours after the announcement, campaign donations surpassed the one million dollar mark!

Democrats were fast in attacking Ryan as being the entitlement reformer who will trim welfare and pension entitlements. But if their best criticism is he wants to reduce public spending at a time where US spending under President Obama has spiraled out of control; they might as well endorse him.

Despite that, if Paul Ryan energies Middle American, same as Palin did when she was first picked in 2008 and manages to sustain it. The Romney – Ryan ticket will win in November. Because, this time, Obama is the incumbent with the bad economic record, this time there will be no landmark visits to Berlin and no mesmerizing speeches in Cairo. This time, there will be none of that ‘Hopey Changey’ business to fall back on!

The real winner of the Iowa Caucus!

Iowa Flag

Is not Mitt Romney! I am very happy with the result, even though it was a virtual tie; Romney made it to first place and he deserves it. He is what America and the world needs right now, my hope is US voters, in particular Republicans can see that.
However, he is not the true winner of the Iowa Caucus!

Rick Santorum was a real shocker and the star of the night. He came from nowhere and barely lost by 8 votes. Well-done to him but he is not the winner either.

The real winner of the Iowa Caucus is the good people of the Hawkeye State. Iowans won by sending a big and important message from the American Heartland, that no amount of money, airtime, or fancy Ads will beat feet on the street and pressing flesh with folks on the ground, congratulations to Iowa and take note politicians!
