Gov. Nikki Haley

Love and Change in Tampa
Yesterday was something of a love fest at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Ann Romney ascended the stage wanting to “talk about love” and her life with Mitt Romney — not the founder of Bain Capital but the “tall, kind of charming young man” who brought her home from a dance 47 years ago and who still has the power to make her laugh.

Chris Christie told a rapt audience that conservatives had become “paralyzed by our desire to be loved,” pointing out that today’s leaders have often “decided it is more important to be popular, to do what is easy and say ‘yes,’ rather than to say no when ‘no’ is what’s required.”  
And then there was the rising star Mia Love, the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, who is running for Congress and who recounted her parents’ journey from poverty and squalor in Haiti to America, a land of opportunity. It’s not clear that Ms. Love’s endorsement of Mitt Romney and the traditional American values he espouses will do much to move the statistical needle of African-American support for Romney from near zero, but if any speech could, she delivered it.

Ann Romney's Speech = AWESOME

Continuing the Liberal Racism Theme

Did Businessweek’s Joshua Green Just call Artur Davis a “minstrel”? Yes in this tweet here. Holy crap, have they no shame?!?

In Case You Missed Mia Love

Because the mainstream media and NBC are such bastards.

Video: Mia Love Rocks GOP Convention, MSNBC Ignores

See for yourself - NBC didn't post either Mia Love's speech (video above) OR Artur Davis's speech (video below). How very racist of NBC and the Mainstream Media to suppress the voices of people of color simply because they do not agree with their views. A terrible thing to do to these conservative African-Americans. Update - it wasn't just NBC who skipped the African-American speeches, so did MSNBC. Way to keep an open mind, uberliberal scumbags. MSNBC abandons GOP convention during every speech by a minority

Why Jan Brewer Is Awesome

I got the following from an email this morning and thought it was a near perfect response on Gov. Jan Brewer. I couldn't verify it on but as a response to the pro-immigration idiots, it is still excellent. Enjoy.
The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team,Robert Sarver, came out strongly opposing AZ's new immigration laws.

Arizona 's Governor, Jan Brewer,released the following statement in response to Sarver's criticism of the new law:  
"What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the gate-crashers are but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to ask these folks to produce their ticket stubs, thus non-paying attendees couldn't be ejected.  
Furthermore, what if Suns' ownership was expected to provide those who sneaked in with complimentary eats and drink? And what if, on those days when a gate-crasher became ill or injured, the Suns had to provide free medical care and shelter?"
