Some Interesting Quotes From Last Night’s RNC Activities

Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Like him or hate him, he made a very profound comment to Alan Colmes on Hannity & Colmes last night. I am certain that the left-leaning media is going to completely ignore it or at best white-wash it so that no one recognizes it, but I caught it and I am going to pass it along to you.

When Alan Colmes asked Mayor Guiliani about what achievements Sarah Palin had as Governor of Alaska, the Mayor responded that Gov. Palin stood up to corruption in her own party and further went on to note that she has no counterpart in the Democrat Party. Not satisfied with that answer, Mayor Giuliani also noted how Barack Obama came from Chicago and yet made no effort to clean up the corruption there which meant either Obama was blind or there was no corruption in Chicago at all. Most rationally thinking people who know something about the politics in that region of Illinois can see that Obama must be blind.

Sean Hannity himself noted a few other things that were very important in helping us understand how Old Media has marginalized itself. He noted that many aggressive and belligerent questions have been thrown at Gov. Palin concerning the pregnancy of her teenaged daughter, but not one major media outlet has ever questioned Barack Obama on his relationship with domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Such is a prime example of the irresponsibility of Old Media.

But, I would like to have a look at Sen. Fred Thompson’s speech. Certain items stood out either because they were humorous, humorously true or just plain truth. Let’s look at a few of them.

On Gov. Sarah Palin:

Now, she’s from a small town with small-town values, but apparently that’s not good enough for some of the folks who are out there now attacking her and her family. Some Washington pundits and media big-shots are in a frenzy over the selection of a woman who has actually governed rather than just talked a good game on the Sunday talk shows and hit the Washington cocktail circuit.

I say give me a tough Alaskan governor who has taken on the political establishment in the largest state of the union and won over the Beltway business-as-usual crowd any day of the week.

But it’s pretty clear the selection of Governor Palin has got the other side and their friends in the media in a state of panic. And no wonder: She’s a courageous, successful, reformer who’s not afraid to take on the establishment.

She has run a municipality, and she’s run a state. And I think I can say without fear of contradiction she’s the only nominee in the history of either party who knows how to properly field dress a moose … with the possible exception of Teddy Roosevelt. OK.

And as Mayor Giuliani noted, Gov. Palin does not have a corruption-fighting counterpart in the Democrats.

Sen. Thompson also said something that the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, William Jefferson and many other corrupt members of Congress should be terrified of:

When she and John McCain get to Washington, they’re not going to care how much the alligators get irritated. They’re going to drain that swamp.

We all know about Nancy Pelosi’s deal with T. Boone Pickens and how she has direct influence on legislation that could funnel money in the form of Federal subsidies to the North Texas Wind Farms. Something like that is exactly what the McCain/Palin Administration would go after. If Pelosi were smart, she would be afraid … very afraid.

On Sen. McCain:

Strength, courage, humility, wisdom, duty, honor. It’s pretty clear there are two questions that we’ll never have to ask ourselves: Who is this man? And can we trust this man with the presidency?

He’s been to — he’s been to Iraq eight times since 2003. He went seeking truth, not publicity. When he travels abroad, he prefers quietly speaking to the troops amidst the heat and hardships of their daily lives. And the same character that marked John McCain’s military career has also marked his political career. This man, John McCain, is not intimidated by what the polls say or by what is politically safe or popular.

At a point in time when the war in Iraq was going badly and the public lost confidence, John stood up and called for more troops. And now we’re winning.

For years, members of Congress, Republican and Democrat alike, have gouged the taxpayer with secret earmark spending. Well, he has never sought an earmark.

When Barack Obama was taking criticism for not visiting the troops, he finally went to Iraq, but only to those places where the cameras were rolling for him. When he discovered that reporters and cameras would not be allowed into the hospital, he cancelled a visit with wounded troops. Just not enough attention for him there.

And we see a comment about Fiscal Conservatism. That is a major issue for us Republicans. We will finally get someone in the White House who will truly fight for economic sanity.

This is key too:

Now, our opponents tell us not to worry about their tax increases. They tell you they’re not going to tax your family. No, they’re just going to tax businesses. So unless you buy something from a business, like groceries or clothes or gasoline, or unless you get a paycheck from a business, a big business or a small business, don’t worry, it’s not going to affect you.

They say they’re not going to take any water out of your side of the bucket, just the other side of the bucket.

The Republicans understand that it is the consumer who ultimately pays taxes. The Democrats think that money is magically created by businesses and therefore can be confiscated at any time for any reason.

It was a fantastic speech by an exceptional man. Feel free to read the entire transcript on-line here:
