Drunkblogging the RNC – Day One IV

10:35 – Chris Christie!

10:36 – A NJ Republican, proud of his state, and proud of his country.

10:37 – Fifth Martini!

10:38 – His mom didn’t suffer fools, and was tough as nails. Sounds like my NJ grandmother.

10:41 – Romney is sitting next to Condi Rice listening to this speech. Some might read into that; I merely note it.

10:43 – Switching to blue state ills. Not like the swing states, of which NJ is not, but the same story. Cuts taxes in a state that raised taxes 115 times in the few years before he became guv.

10:45 – Moving up to the real theme of this election. Are the American people adults, ready for the truth and not politicians who pander? This is the critical question. The ideas of the Dems have failed. It’s time for the truth. It’s time for math.

10:47 – They believe the American people need to be coddled and live the lie.

10:49 – Major theme: Dems believe that every interest group will put themselves before others. Might be true as the Dems have made electoral hay out of this idea for decades. Still, it is worth hoping for the better angels of our nature.

10:51 – “If we can do this in a blue state like NJ with a conservative governor, then Washington DC is out of excuses.” Amen governor.

10:55 – “Real leaders change polls.” Not since Reagan have we had that kind of President.

10:57 – “I want our children to live in a second American century.” Sounds good to me.

10:58 – Literally calls for everyone to stand up. Brilliant!

11:00 – Christie wraps up. Nice job. Red meat and solid American values. We can handle the truth he says, which I think is the critical theme of this election. If we can’t handle the truth, better to know sooner rather than later. Either way, Christie did what keynoters do, he established himself as a major player on the national scale. Thanks for reading, I’m off to finish that last Martini.

Cheers!
