Ceci Velasquez Exposed as Not Ready For Elected Office

This from the Aaron Borders campaign. Watch as Ceci Velasquez explains why she is the most unqualified candidate running in LD-29.

The Democrat Party should be ashamed of itself for putting her up as a candidate without any grooming or training. They have embarrassed her and themselves.

Rep. Artur Davis Endorses Vernon Parker for Arizona CD9

Artur Davis is a former Democrat Congressman from Alabama. He caused quite a stir when he changed his registration to the Republican Party, and he delivered an outstanding speech at the Republican National Convention.  Davis is an eloquent spokesman for conservative priniciples that used to be held by all Americans, but which Democrats have largely abandoned.  You can hear more about his inspiring story at this link.

In the video below, recorded October 23rd, Rep. Davis endorses Vernon Parker, former mayor of Paradise Valley, for Arizona Congressional District 9 Representative.  Parker is another rising star within the Republican Party who is running against a self-described “Prada Socialist” with many questionable ties.  CD9 voters could hardly have a clearer choice.

More than just an endorsement, Davis’ remarks also deliver some important messages about the need to change the view that minorities have about the Republican Party.

It’s the Morning After the First Debate, and I’m Giddy

Wow!  I’m giddy.  I was surprised and thrilled by Gov. Romney’s performance in last night’s debate (Oct. 3).  I watched the debate with 7 other Conservatives, time-delayed by a Tivo box so that we could halt the action and toss in our own comments.

Several of us were apprehensive at the outset, but by the end of the debate we had worked ourselves into a frenzy of excitement, shouting “Yes! Yes! Yes!” as he pounded home those key points that free-market, limited-government, fiscal-responsibility Conservatives have been trumpeting for years.

Now I have to confess.  I had no idea that Gov. Romney had this in him.  Sure, he’d had some brief flashes on the campaign trail, and his style turned for the better after naming Paul Ryan as his VP.  But like many Conservatives, I feared the Governor was just the next-in-line Establishment Republican candidate — doomed to be another gracious loser.

I’m still absorbing what I saw & heard, and I’ll have to go through the whole debate again, but I do remember Romney’s first home run of the evening (for me) when he pointed out the immorality of the debt we are piling on the backs of our children.  As I’ve written in the past (herehere, and here for example), we are effectively selling them into a modern-day version of debt bondage.  At last we have a candidate who leads with that point against all those “compassionate” Democrats, the people who supposedly “care”.

As for Obama’s own performance, a repeated interjection among my friends was “He’s flailing, he’s flailing!”.  Time and again he reached back for his standard campaign talking points, sometimes well off-topic, and he was visibly shell-shocked when Romney put them down emphatically, with compelling refutation points, nicely bulleted and driven home like nails in a coffin (puns intended).

If you can watch the debate again, keep an eye on Obama’s upper jaw near his left ear as he stares down at his podium.  One of our friends spotted it first.  You’ll see a light spot come and go as he visibly clenches and unclenches his teeth. This man is used to adulation and acquiescence, not reasoned confrontation.  Bound up in his Leftist ideology and surrounded 24/7 by sycophants and a fawning, collaborative media, he was totally unprepared to defend his indefensible record. He spent much of the evening staring down at that podium as if being scolded by his school master.

Obama will be better prepared at the next debate, and Romney will have to guard against over-confidence.  But I’m no longer worried.  Obama’s hand is incredibly weak — almost everywhere, he’s holding a pair of deuces against Romney’s full house.  And Romney’s better at the game — much better.

Of course, the election ain’t over ’til it’s over, and the Obama machine, the Great American Left, and the Democrat Media Complex won’t go gently into the night.  But we have ourselves a candidate in Mitt Romney, and I have a new-found confidence that he and his staff might just run this campaign right across the finish line going away, and leading by several lengths.

Then, the long hard path to recovery begins.

State Leaders Join the Fight Against Prop 121

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                

October 4, 2012

State Leaders Join the Fight Against Prop 121

 

PHOENIX, Ariz. – State Senator Steve Gallardo, and Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox have joined with Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery to co-chair the fight against Proposition 121.

Proposition 121 is an election system that would completely eliminate Arizona’s current system.  Under Proposition 121, party primaries would no longer exist.  Instead, Arizona would have one primary ballot in each district with the names of everyone running for an office in that district.  In this “jungle primary,” the two candidates that get the most votes would then move on to the general election, regardless of party.

“I am proud to be part of a strong bipartisan group of people who are concerned about the future of Arizona,” said County Attorney Bill Montgomery.  “Proposition 121 is simply an attempt by special interests to control our elections.”

“This proposition will result in a loss of choices for the voters.  We must not allow our elections to become a place for political schemes and corruption,” said Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox.

“Money spent on elections will double here in Arizona if this proposition passes,” said Senator Steve Gallardo.  “More money in politics means less of a voice for the voter, which is what the special interests pushing this issue want.”

Honest Elections, Not Political $chemes

Vote NO on Prop 121

Are the Democrats Sensing Defeat? Ask Chris Matthews.

Are any of you Conservative news junkies sensing what I’m sensing?

Namely —

It seems the Leftist media are finally sensing defeat in November.  And I mean really sensing it. The willful self-deception that they’ve cultivated for so long is crumbling.  Their messiah is false.  He’s failed.  And rather miserably at that.  And he may well take the party down with him in just a few weeks.

Why do I think they’re sensing defeat?

One of their media princelings, Chris Matthews, the bloviating, spittle-spewing host of MSNBC’s Hardball, shifted rather abruptly into defensive alibi mode on the August 31 edition of his show, less than 24 hours after Mitt Romney’s RNC acceptance speech.  Matthews began slathering blame on “Republican opposition” for Obama’s failure, this time including a freshly announced conspiracy, ostensibly hatched “in secret” back in 2009, to oppose the President’s policies.

Short memo to Chris:  The opposition opposes.  That’s what they do.  Especially when your messiah sets about to do what he’s done. And every minority party seeks to regain the majority.  It’s nothing personal, okay?

But more importantly —

What Obama failure are you talking about?  So now Obama has failures?  Are you now implying he’ll lose the upcoming election?  Are you seeking to lay off the blame for that in advance?

Sheesh.  This is quite a shift for a mawkishly liberal, self-delusional, sycophantic, Obama camp follower like you, no?  Has that 2008 tingle up your leg migrated to a 2012 chill up your spine?

What happened?  Did you watch the RNC speeches that your network wouldn’t air?  Were you frightened by the depth of the Republican bench?  (If so, eat your heart out, pal.)    Did you mentally compare Paul Ryan to Joe Biden and suffer a panic attack?

I occasionally enjoy your show for its unintentional humor, but the sea change in your August 31 show was positively delightful.  Please do it again on your next show.  Please.  As the RNC mystery guest said: Go ahead. Make my day.
