I watched JEB!’s announcement yesterday (June 15), which started off, at least in my opinion . . . weak, shaky and not at all self-assured. But, as his speech progressed, so did his confidence, and so did the enthusiasm of his audience.
In all . . . the speech was REALLY GOOD. He hit the main points with an aura of believability. BUT, HE ALSO “COUCHED” SOME VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES:
1 – JEB! Glossed-over COMMON-CORE, which is as LEFTIST a policy as they come, which he fully endorses.
2 – JEB! Hardly dealt with AMNESTY for Illegal Immigrants, which in one way or another, he also supports.
3 – And the last I looked, the United States of America is an English speaking country that OBLIGATES immigrants who want to become citizens, to take their OATH OF ALLEGIANCE IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.
So, what was with the segment of his speech that was in Spanish?
How many times have we heard from President Obama and LEFTISTS like Obama, who are pushing for AMNESTY, that if immigrants want to stay in the USA and become citizens of the country, they must FIRST learn how to speak English?
THAT’S OBVIOUSLY NOT TRUE, because government services throughout the USA are available in Spanish, INCLUDING how to vote, whom to vote for, and on many ballots.
So . . . when JEB! spoke in Spanish, what message was he sending to the American people?
When comparing the HONEST-TO-GOODNESS excitement and enthusiasm in the room for JEB! and his speech . . . to how controlled and bland Clinton’s SECOND launch was, there was no comparison.
JEB! spoke glowingly about the future, the greatness of America, the opportunities of Americans, and that his first jobs will be to rebuild America’s Military, Global Strength, and repair the broken and fractured international confidence amongst America’s historical ALLIES like Israel that have been damaged as a result of Obama, Clinton, Kerry and company.
AND HOW HE WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO CREATE JOBS.
To the contrary . . . Clinton’s FIRST job will be to go after the Middle Class and TAX them until it hurts.
JEB! . . . who by his LOGO as is expressed by his first name ONLY, finished with an exclamation point, is making a conscientious effort to distance himself from his family name, and from his more famous brother, said a whole number of things I fully agree with.
And if he were to win the Republican nomination, he would have all the support this BLOG can muster for him, in spite of his three issues that bother me most.
1 – I still prefer Carly Fiorina, Scott Walker and Ben Carson, amongst several others before JEB!.
2 – The more I hear and see Hillary Clinton, the more it becomes painfully apparent to me how thin and insulting the LEFT’S vision is for a SOCIALIST USA, and how they are determinedly contrary to the American Dream.
3 – And if Hillary Clinton is the BEST the LEFT has . . . and that she actually has a chance to become President – that says all that needs to be said about the decline of the American Empire.
I just watched an hour of BRAGGADOCIO courtesy of Donald Trump, who might be a bigger narcissist than Obama . . . the Narcissist-In-Chief – with one exception:
LIKE HIM OR NOT . . . TRUMP IS IN THE FIGHT IN EVERY ASPECT against all odds, without a fawning media and LEFTIST or RIGHTIST Cabal, backstopping him in every way.
And as much as I think Trump is somewhat of a JOKE, what he said at his most unusual launch, had me saying YES – YES – YES to every point he brought up. And I’m not the only one. I will bet you that a huge swath of Americans watching and listening to his speech, were also shaking their heads while also saying YES – YES – YES.
Where the Republican campaign was going to be pretty robust because of the nature and quality of the candidates, it is now going to be a WAR, forcing all the candidates to lay it all out.
And where I thought we were going to see and hear some bold new ideas and positions . . . NOW I IMAGINE WE WILL SEE IT ALL COME OUT – TAKING NO PRISONERS.
By the time the election actually rolls around, because of the quality of the Republican candidates, AND BECAUSE OF TRUMP, all of America will be focused on Republicans, and their vision of an entirely robust rebirth of the American Dream.
THANK YOU DONALD.
