Thanks beez, I want you to know that I sent this video out
on my email list!

This was one of the best I have ever seen, the look on Obama's face was
kind of scary, though.

He presents a more conservative, Constitutionalist side of things. Naturally the Progressives don't like his message. I'm glad to see people like him stand up and present the alternative to Progressive Socialism. Both parties have been moving leftward over the decades in spite of the lying bs coming out of MSM telling us otherwise.

The best Part about Mr. Carson

The liberals cant call him racist!!! We might actually get our point across now!!!! I know its a little tongue in cheek but its totally true, Carson is saying the same thing we all have been for the last five years, but because of the color of his skin, the Hate group liberals cant call us racists

hurray!!!!


yah but they beat up Herman Cain and Allen West and even fabricated stories with trumped up charges to attack them. What conservative black person hasn't been attacked by the liberal media? Even Star Parker has taken her lumps.

Like undo said, it's totally a waste of energy trying to convince you. I'm not going to engage in frivolous word games with you. It's you who doesn't understand what is going on with the parties. Both parties are moving leftward, only the conservatives are finally putting up a fight, but in general most Republicans are either RINO or moderate at best. In fact I just heard almost the same thing said at a big Tea Party dinner tonight. It was a speaker on Agenda 21, Dan Happel who said it, I just rephrased it a bit. Glenn Beck also said something similar. It's not like it's a totally new idea.

rc.mt.gov...

polymontana.com...

And although this isn't the particular reference of Glenn Beck I was thinking of, it will do


GLENN: You were pretty outspoken about John Boehner here in the last week or so and the Republicans, the progressive Republicans are trying to tell the Republican Party that they’ve got to move left and they have to compromise all of their values, et cetera, et cetera.



The exact reference I was thinking of that Glenn Beck said involved his infamous blackboard and a diagram.

So the Tea Party and Glenn Beck told you everyone is moving Left?
Or could it be shifting blame, refusing to accept responsibility for the failures of the Republican Party so shift it to the favorite demon, even if that 'demon' barely exists.

Or could it be they just want to keep moving further Right?

This was one of the best speeches I have heard in a very, very, long time.

Anyone who doesn't watch this in it's entirety is doing themselves a disservice.

I felt that way as well. I have attention deficit (
) but even I sat through it.

You know, the saddest thing about all of this is the absolutely blatant fawning that the conservative sect does over any minority that espouses their principles. There is nothing that this man is saying that hasn't been said thousands of times of over by thousands of other conservatives (in the public forum). Nothing. In this instance, a speech was given, in a public forum, by a smart, self-made black man that challenged the president. Again, this has happened many, many times over by many others. The only difference, at all, is that he is black. That's it. Please tell me the part of the speech where he gave the conservatives a new idea. The exact same ideas have been previously given with the same candor, or with harsher words, or even in a softer approach…

There seems to be a constant (and this being self admitted on their part) misconception among the conservatives that it's not the message… if we could only package it differently. Whether it be through Palin, Cain, Rubio, Bachman, or maybe we need to be try a big bully, perhaps Christie… eh, perhaps not, he ended up doing something we didn't like. The problem is the message, not the packaging.

And before you get all hot and bothered about Ben Carson, you may want to research a little more. He may not be quite as conservative as you would think (or want?). He's for banning semi-automatic weapons, was against the wars, appears to be for affirmative action of some sort (in his recent interview with Greta Van Susteren), he, oddly enough, called for considerably more regulation in the health insurance industry, and really seems overall like a bit of a compassionate conservative. My guess is that he'll say something soon that the far right won't like, and all of these insanely predictable fawning conservatives will move on to the next minority who can maybe, just maybe, repackage, and sell that same old message that fewer and fewer americans are buying. Stand by for the moving on.
