Michele Bachmann Rocks Florida

Pages: 1 2

After expending their last bullet, came more heroics. Living under a daily firing squad sentence for almost two years the men who cheered Michelle Bachmann this week refused to sign the confession damning the “U.S. Imperialists” (the very nation whose commander-in-chief betrayed them on that beachhead) thinking it would probably save their lives. Many spat on the document in front of their Communist torturers, thinking it would doom them to death by firing squad. “We will die with dignity!” responded their second-in-command Erneido Oliva to his furious Communist captors, again and again and again.

To a Castroite such an attitude not only enrages, but baffles, speaking of which:

“These Cuban exiles are really just a bunch of wimps! That’s right—WIMPS!” writes Michael Moore in his book “Downsize This.” His smear singles out the Bay of Pigs invaders for particular scorn. “Ex-Cubans with a yellow stripe down their backs, and crybabies” is how the Democratic Party’s keynote attraction at its 2004 convention — where he sat humongous cheek to shriveled cheek with Democratic elder statesman Jimmy Carter — refers to the men who Michele Bachmann honored this week.

Fifty years ago when the smoke cleared and their ammo had been expended to the very last bullet, when a hundred of them lay dead and hundreds more wounded, after three days of relentless battle, barely 1,400 of them — without air support (from the U.S. carriers just offshore) and without a single supporting shot by naval artillery (from U.S. cruisers and destroyers poised just offshore) — had squared off against 31,000 Castro troops, his entire air force and squadrons of Soviet tanks. The Cuban freedom fighters inflicted casualties of 20 to 1 against their Soviet-armed and led enemies. Their feat of arms still amazes professional military men.

“They fought magnificently and were not defeated,” stressed Marine Col. Jack Hawkins a multi-decorated WWII and Korea vet who helped train them. “They were abandoned on the beach without the supplies and support promised by their sponsor, the Government of the United States.”

“We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty!” proclaimed Hawkins’ commander-in-chief just three months earlier. The words were actually the late JFK speechwriter Theodore Sorensen’s, later an Obama campaign advisor.

    "Marco Rubio​ has the hallmarks of, I think, everything that a person would look for in a potential candidate"

    Everything except eligibility. Neither Rubio or Jindal is eligible to be our POTUS.

    Neither man's parents were U.S. citizens therefore they are NOT eligible to be POTUS or VEEP ; the exact same problem Obama has. If Rubio and Jindal are true patriots and supporters of the Constitution, one or both of them will immediately call a press conference and announce that he is not a ‘natural born citizen’ because his parents were not U.S. citizens and that he cannot accept any invitation to join a presidential ticket. For more eligibility info, see: http://naturalborncitizen.wordpress.com/2011/06/2….

    Help me make that happen. Go to http://rubio.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/contact or http://www.gov.la.gov/index.cfm?md=form&tmp=e…. Tell Rubio and Jindal that you expect them to do the right thing so that we can both fix the constitutional crisis we currently face and forever prevent another from occurring. This problem should have been resolved following Chester A. Arthur’s administration when it was discovered that his father was not a U.S. citizen when Chester was born – but it wasn’t. Let's finally put this question to rest.

    If Rubio or Jindal will stand tall and make that announcement, it would immediately shine a spotlight on Barry's ineligibility and force the SCOTUS/Congress to act. Help me make that happen! It will only take a couple minutes – please do it now!
