It’s Crawl Over Broken Glass Day!

leave a comment »

Vote!

The day is upon us, and it is time to vote out the failed Obama experiment. In truth, I'm not certain he thinks he's failed, since part of me still thinks that this is what he and his Alinskyite allies planned all along.

But, for the rest of us, this is abject failure. And four more years would only make it worse. Possibly unfixably worse.

More debt, more spending, more regulation, more government control, more environmental restrictions, more division, more failed foreign policy, more bowing, more dead Mexicans, more dead Americans, more tyranny!

Less jobs, less economic growth, less energy independence, less household income, less healthcare, less purchasing power, less military power, less international respect, less unity, less freedom!

Romney has made the case for a brighter future. He's got the experience and the vision to bring this country back to greatness. He gets it. Cut spending. Cut taxes. Cut regulation. Get government out of the way, and watch the innate resilience of America roar back. Keep our national defense strong, and bow to no one.

MartiniPundit proudly endorses Mitt Romney for president. Now go out and vote for him. And while you're at it, vote straight Republican down ticket. President Romney is going to need a congress willing to work with him to get the job done.

Vote! Crawl over broken glass but vote!

Messing With the Unemployment Number

leave a comment »

7.8%.

Piffle.

I have all along expected the unemployment number to magically decrease just before the election. The BLS has been cooking the books all along. Is it really credible that people have “stopped looking for work?” There is a difference between being discouraged and throwing in the towel.

I would have been disappointed if Obama and his BLS didn't try to buffalo us at this point. 23 million+ fewer people (according to Obama) in the workforce. Add back a few hundred thousand in part-time jobs and hey, the “private sector is doing just fine.”

Really? Job recovery begins as soon as Obama loses his.

Enjoyed Some Pizza Last Night

leave a comment »

After hearing that Michelle Obama wanted people to skip pizza and send the money to Barack, we promptly changed our dinner plans at Villa MartiniPundit and ordered in a couple of pies from Domino's. Pepperoni and mushroom and a Hawaiian. Tipped the driver well too – people need the work.

Drunkblogging the RNC – Day Three IV

10:32 – And here comes Romney!

10:33 – Romney’s coming in like a President does for the State of the Union address. Brilliant!

10:42 – Solid beginning. You were promised change, but it didn’t happen. You’re working harder. He wants America to succeed, so he wished President Obama had succeeded, but he didn’t.

10:45 – Neil Armstrong’s boots made a permanent impression on the moon and on our souls. Nice.

10:46 – The confidence to know that when the world needs someone to do the really big stuff, you need an American. Can anyone imagine Obama saying something like that?

10:54 – You know there’s something wrong when the best feeling you have for Barack Obama was the day you voted for him.

10:58 – In America we celebrate success, we don’t apologize for success.

11:00 – Now turning to the future. What can be. Just what he needs to do.

11:04 – Energy independence. Yes, jobs, and kicking our enemies to the curb.

11:08 – No, Mr. President, America takes out dictators.

11:09 – Hitting hard on foreign policy. “Our friends will see more loyalty, and Mr. Putin a little less flexibility.”

11:11 – Looks like the peroration is coming.

11:12 – A military so strong that no nation will dare test it.

11:13 – Done and one. Romney did what he needed to do in this speech.

A glass raised to the 45th President of the United States!

10:02 – Clint Eastwood!

10:03 – Save a little for Mitt. Heh.

10:06 – Eastwood is talking to an empty chair in which he’s having an imaginary dialogue with Obama. That’s fantastic! And Obama told him to shut up!

10:08 – “I’m not gonna shut up. It’s my turn.”

10:09 – “You’re getting as bad as Biden.” This is vicious. I love it.

10:11 – Apparently Obama is suggesting Romney and Eastwood do something to themselves which is anatomically improbable.

10:12 – We own this country. Politicians are our employees. That is the truth.

10:14 – OK, Eastwood stole the show. Can’t say I’m surprised.

10:15 – And here comes Rubio. Tough act to follow.

10:19 – The problem with Obama is not that he’s a bad person. He’s a bad president.

10:22 – Fourth Martini.

10:24 – “To whom much is given, much will be required.” St. Benedict not Karl Marx.

9:02 – The founder of Staples is speaking. The Obama campaign wants us to focus on one closed steel mill, and ignore the success that Bain made of Staples. How many people are employed by Staples? How many businesses are empowered by Staples? I'm thinking a lot.

9:43 – The Olympians are speaking. Kinda slow. I think it’s time for the third Martini!

10:01 – The obligatory slickly produced video on the candidate. Nicely done. Cute kids.

Drunkblogging the RNC – Day Three

So, the third and last day of the RNC. Martini in hand, I await the big moment – Romney's acceptance speech.

7:52 pm – Newt and Callista Gingrich are tag-teaming. Not the best time slot, but good in the interest of party unity.

8:00 – Good video by elected Hispanics. Best part was the other party taking them for granted. Needs to be said early and often.

8:05 – Jeb Bush takes the podium. His brother “kept us safe.” All too true, and Obama has not.

8:07 – Time to stop blaming your predecessor. A real leader would take responsibility.

8:09 – Segueing to education. Good. A critical area in our country which has too long been in the iron grip of unions and lefties. Our public education performance is abysmal.

8:38 – Two old folks are at the podium. A retired firefighter and his wife from Medford, MA. The race to prove Romney isn’t a vulcan is on.

8:46 – Powerful story by a mother who nearly lost her daughter of three months. Mitt was there for her family.

8:50 – Second Martini.

8:51 – Bain Capital has been spoken out loud! Let the true story come out.
