If you ever read my blog before you know I would rather camp out on an anthill then link to a Democrat. But since it is the GOP that is trying to destroy the GOP I have no choice: http://dailycaller.com/2013/06/11/wake-up/
I never trusted Marco Rubio, and boy have I been proven right. Embracing amnesty will drive the rank and file GOP voter away, while bringing not one new voter to the GOP ranks. The Gang of Eight will be the end of the GOP. Remember the 4 million Republican voters who didn’t turn out to vote for Gov. Romney. If the Gang of Eight bill passes it will be 40 million GOP voters
As Mickey Kaus points out in this post, this is failed politicians creating more failure.
For another, the Republican consultants–e.g. Gillespie, Rove–who helped Mitt Romney lose the 2012 election have taken their own failure as an excuse to push what they’ve wanted all along–a business-pleasing immigration policy guaranteeing a supply of inexpensive labor from abroad and a stream of campaign donations to pay Republican consultants.
Rove has failed us and failed us and now he will destroy us. Tweet, call, write! Don’t let that turncoat Rubio have a moment’s peace. The Gang of Eight are all our Benedicts, they win, we are done.
First off I don’t deserve to be in the vast right wing conspiracy. I so needed a camera today and a notebook and I had neither, just my phone, so the pictures are lousy and my recollections incomplete, but I will do my best.
Today the BurkeanSon and I attended the ceremony on Mt. Soledad dedicating two plaques to the 2 former Navy Seals Glen Doherty Ty Woods who gave their lives defending the US compound in Benghazi. It was as moving an event as I ever attended. But with all the emotional moments and inspiring speeches Ty Woods widow Dorothy gave a speech that no could ever forgot.
Mrs Woods: “a few months ago we were asked the cruel question what difference does it make, Ty, Glen, their brother Mike Monsoor and the many great men and women memorialized in the walls around me have in effect answered that question with the far more important one: how can I make a difference now.”
She said last Sept her husband and Doherty responded to the “cruel and ignorant question” what difference does it make, by asking what difference can I make, running toward the sound of gunfire and saving lives at the cost of their own.
The local news said Mrs. Woods drew “gasps” from the crowd. But it was more like ooooos and aaaaas from people who have been lied to for so long they thought they would never hear the truth. When she finished speaking the audience rose as one and gave her a loud and sustained standing ovation.
If the GOP doesn’t put this amazing, brave woman on the podium at the 2016 convention we so deserve President Clinton.
I sent a donation to Ty Woods memorial fund today. I ask you all to do so as well.

Last time the south was wrong. This time the south will be Right.
Miss Ann Thrope is not very political. She would, for instance, never let her conservatism get in the way of watching The West Wing, no matter how many times I razzed her about it. She even once stupidly said it doesn’t even matter much who wins the Presidency. (Don’t worry I never let her live that one down.)
When Obama was re-elected she was more enraged than I had ever seen her about politics. She un-friended 30 people on facebook. I’ve rarely ever seen her even fight about politics let alone end friendships. I asked her why this time was so different than all the other times liberals have won. “He left them to die, he left them to die,” was all she could say.
Mark Steyn paints as desperate a picture of Benghazi as Ann agonizingly exclaimed. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/347980/benghazi-lie
Back in Benghazi, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty held off numerically superior forces for hours before dying on a rooftop waiting for back-up from a government that had switched the answering machine on and gone to Vegas.
Those words could well be the beginning of America’s eulogy.
But was Obama and Benghazi really worse that FDR at Yalta? Yes Obama left 4 men to die in Benghazi. How many soldiers died in Vietnam because of LBJ’s obsessive rules of engagement that forbade fighting back. You see my point. Life is always cheap to Democrats. Always has been, always will be. We can defeat Obama, we can defeat that witch Hilary. The left will bounce back in an even more homicidal form.
I just saw a comment at the Daily Beast, some liberal dismissing Benghazi as “nothing” just meant to destroy Hilary! There was a time I could not think badly enough of any of my fellow Americans to imagine that even liberals would dismiss leaving Navy Seals and an Ambassador to die was “nothing.”
But that time was very long ago.
I don’t think I am writing about the attempts to save America anymore. I think I am writing an eyewitness account of the last days of mankind’s last, best hope on earth. If I didn’t have a son, I wouldn’t even mind. After Benghazi, followed by Obama’s re-election, what is now called the USA doesn’t deserve to be.
