Youth Featured in New Romney Ad: Obama’s “No, I Can’t?” We Must and Will!

The Romney Campaign has put out a great ad today that seems to sum up the attitudes of today’s Millennial generation.

We have only 42 days left before America votes - Now is the time for advocacy; now is the time to elevate our message of freedom. As a reader of this blog, we encourage and invite you to dig a little deeper and reach out to others - share the message of freedom. Develop an email list, use social media, engage in daily conversations - share the message of freedom and liberty.

Knowledge is power. The more we know and the better informed we are, the more effective we can be. The media is filled with bias and, at times, it is difficult to discern truth. We have witnessed a mainstream media that knows no bounds - they suppress or distort truth and they filter what they report so as to promote and protect the President. The cable news shows, MSNBC, CNN, and others are so far in the tank for the President, it is difficult at best to tolerate their reporting. Further, the current polls are so skewed, they offer little relief in knowing where things really stand. Amidst it all, FoxNews tries its best at fair and balanced. The internet can also provide a plethora of information, some of which is true and some not. So, where can we go for critical and accurate information?

The Drudge Report is a tremendous aggregator of information. Matt Drudge is the bane of the mainstream media and accused by them of bias, which is a testament of Drudge’s integrity!
Real Clear Politics is another aggregator without a perceived bias.
Mitt Romney Central - biased as we may be, we strive for accuracy and integrity in our information.
Hugh Hewitt - Hugh does a tremendous job at providing information with integrity and substance. He has his bias, but clearly delineates what is opinion.
On The Brink FB page - I try to link to substantive information regularly in support of the tenets of On The Brink, America’s Choice 2012
Mitt Romney Central FB - Again, we strive for accuracy and integrity in our posts.
Dennis Prager - an intelligent and cogent source for information.
National Review - Rich Lowry has done an admiral job in trying to distill truth amid the cacophony of news.

There are several others, some of which can be inflammatory in their reporting in an attempt to elevate the debate, such as Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity. Even so, they provide fodder for provocative thought and further study. There are others, but I have found those above to be informative.

The need to be informed has never been greater as we fight for our freedoms and liberties.

As to polls, below is a report card of accuracy and consistency from the 2008 election cycle.

President Obama has Thrown Israel Under the Bus

President Obama gave his anticipated Middle East Speech. This speech was particularly important because the President’s foreign policy stances in regards to the Middle East seem so incoherent and devised on a case-by-case basis. As Governor Romney said at CPAC, “I surely hope that at some point in the near future, the President will finally be able to construct a foreign policy, any foreign policy.” However, Gov. Romney and all of us are horrified by what the President revealed today. Despite warnings that President Obama may be the most anti-Israel President in our nation’s history, this situation is something we’ve hoped we would never have to confront. Many Americans are struggling to make sense of what President Obama said today.

The Drudge Report picked up on The Hill reporting that Gov. Romney led republicans in criticizing the speech:

Romney strongly criticized Obama, who, in a speech at the State Department, called for Israel to return to its border lines as drawn before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.

‘President Obama has thrown Israel under the bus. He has disrespected Israel and undermined its ability to negotiate peace,’ Romney said in a statement.

‘He has also violated a first principle of American foreign policy, which is to stand firm by our friends,’

The timing of this speech by our President is even more despicable. Israel’s Prime Minister is scheduled to address Congress tomorrow and that fact explains why President Obama made this speech when he did. The speech wasn’t scheduled at all until Prime Minister Netanyahu announced he was coming to the U.S. to address Congress. Trying to upstage an American ally like this is unbelievable. President Obama treated Prime Minister Netanyahu horribly on his last visit and this treatment is even worse. Here’s what Netanyahu said when he heard about President Obama’s speech today:

Netanyahu, in keeping with his previous statements, called the proposal militarily ‘indefensible’ in a statement. ‘Israel believes that in order for peace to prevail, the establishment of a Palestinian state cannot come at the expense of the State of Israel’s existence,’ he said. ‘The Palestinians, and not only the United States, must recognize Israel as the Jewish people’s nation-state’.

President Bush signed an agreement with Israel in 2004 that we would never ask Israel to return to pre-1967 borders in return for their concessions. Today, President Obama essentially ripped the agreement up and threw it away. Israel didn’t make this agreement with President Bush. Israel made this agreement with the United States of America.

What makes this even more disappointing to the Jewish community is that President Obama is scheduled to deliver an address at the AIPAC Policy Conference this weekend. The group sent out an e-mail to attendees before the President threw Israel under the bus today urging members to applaud the President and essentially not boo. That is going to be even harder to accomplish now.

OneNewsNow is conducting an online poll asking “How would you rate Barack Obama’s treatment of Israel since he took office?” Feel free to make your opinion known by voting in that poll.

If you’re still confused by this whole ordeal, Dr. Charles Krauthammer explains “What Obama’s MENA Speech Means“.

UPDATE
Democratic senior statesman Ed Koch says Israel is facing its “most dangerous and critical period” and he is ready to break with his party in the next presidential election over President Obama’s policies on the Middle East. the former New York City mayor said, “Mitt Romney correctly summed it up when he said that President Obama has once again thrown Israel under the bus.

Add Ed Koch to the growing list of people who regret voting for President Obama in 2012 and who will likely vote for Gov. Romney in 2012!

In Case You Missed It: Video of Mitt Romney's Facebook Town Hall + Romney Headlines Drudge



Mitt knocked it out of the park today!

This footage was streamed live to Mitt Romney’s Facebook page during his National Call Day event in Nevada earlier today. The 8-hour fundraiser garnered a whopping $10.25 Million for Romney’s Presidential Exploratory Committee.

~Update from Ross
Even though some of the media isn’t giving Mitt’s fund-raising achievement the attention it deserves, Drudge is doing his part.

UPDATE by Jayde – Headline on Drudge: Did Mitt Romney Mention That He Can Raise $10.25 Million in Eight Hours?

[…]…we continue to maintain that Massachusetts’s health-care reform will not be the be-all-end-all for Republican primary voters that political commentators make it seem. The economy will be the most important issue in 2012, and Romney is seen as a successful businessman. As a reminder, he’s also the only person actually running (unlike Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump) to lead a poll this entire year, and upcoming polls without Huckabee and Trump will probably show him with a big lead over the rest of the field. In addition, not incidentally, he can raise a ton of money.

Exhibit A: Yesterday, Romney and over 700 of his closest friends (and Cindy Crawford, for unexplained reasons) filled the Las Vegas Convention Center in a dialing-for-dollars event that brought in $10.25 million in eight hours. It would probably take Tim Pawlenty about a month to raise that much, especially with all the time his phone-bank volunteers would spend explaining to potential donors who Tim Pawlenty is. It was a display of fund-raising muscle-flexing that should remind both his opponents and his media doubters that, far from a longshot, Romney is still the front-runner.


Romney Tops Drudge - Today is the Mitt Romney Health Care Speech

Guess what today’s top story is according the Drudge Report!? This is a great way to start what should end up being a great day!

The following is the release from the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center:

Tomorrow, former Massachusetts governor and possible presidential candidate Mitt Romney will speak to an audience of invited guests and news media at our Cardiovascular Center, beginning at 2 p.m.

The speech, which is open by invitation only, is being sponsored by the College Republicans, a U-M student organization.

The use of our facility by Gov. Romney does not constitute endorsement of the content of his speech nor of his potential candidacy by the U-M Health System or the University of Michigan. As a public institution, the University of Michigan cannot endorse candidates.

Anyone with an appointment or a loved one at the Cardiovascular Center on Thursday should rest assured that this event will not interfere with patient care, or the ability of patients and visitors to park at the CVC. Staff and faculty will be able to travel through the CVC as always.

The facility is being used in accordance with guidelines for official student groups that wish to hold events in university facilities. All costs associated with the event will be billed to the College Republicans.

How do we know the democrats are worried about the possibility of Mitt hitting a home run today? Besides the huge increase in hit pieces we’ve seen in the last 48 hours, check out Dems go on attack against Romney ahead of healthcare speech.

Giuliani is left of Al Gore on Global Warming

From Pajamas Media:

Rudy Giuliani criticizes Al Gore for being soft on global warming. This is very good news for Mitt Romney. Apparently Giuliani’s strategy is to not try and win the conservative vote.

Here are a few global warming links you won’t find in the mainstream press:
A Canadian climatologist with Ph.D. says global warming is not man made.

Oregon wants to strip state climatologist of title. Donald Trump to defend?

The sun has greater role than man in global warming.

Drudge recently had a flash about the President of the Czech Republic questioning Gore’s sanity. Drudge’s flashes tend to roll off so Mick at Sad Bastards captured the post
