Speech That Should Have Been Given At CPAC


Hello CPAC! It’s great to be here. It’s wonderful to look out there and see so many faces still filled with hope, and patriotism, and optimism for the future of this country we all love so dearly.

It’s been a tough couple of months: believe me, I know. A lot of people have asked me what the election in November really meant. I have to tell you: honestly, I don’t really know what it meant. All I can do is tell you how it felt. Somebody online got it exactly right: the re-election of Barack Obama was like the Titanic hitting the iceberg… then backing up for a mile or two, getting up a full head of steam and then hitting it again!

And it’s heartbreaking. It’s just heartbreaking.

Because even though we opposed this President for his policies right from the beginning, we all hoped for so much more. Even the Democrats are feeling it. Obama said he was going to fundamentally change our country. It’s the one promise he’s tried to keep. What we have seen from this man for the last four years has been change all right – a catastrophic change to the American economy here at home, and a catastrophic loss of prestige and bungled, even deadly foreign policy changes abroad.

It took us awhile to understand who this President really is. Lots of politicians make promises when they are seeking our votes, and we can’t always be sure that they mean what they say. When he was running for office and seeking our votes Barack Obama promised us he would be a uniter, not a divider; a centrist not an extremist; an economic pragmatist rather than a job-destroying ideologue; and most of all, we believed him when he said he would concentrate on getting people back to work… and not just caddies and golf pros but all Americans.

That was more than four years ago. We’ve had four years now to see how those promises worked out: four years to get a measure of the man who is now our leader. And those four years of actual deeds rather than empty words have allowed us to see exactly who this man is. And among the things we have learned about this man – of all the things that define his leadership — there are two that stand out above all others.

This is a president — this is a man — who doesn’t tell the truth.

And just as shocking, this is a president who doesn’t care.

*   *    *   *   *

On September 12 of last year one of the most terrible and shameful incidents in the history of the American presidency took place. Our diplomatic corps in Benghazi was attacked. It was attacked by al-Qaeda, the same terrorist force that had attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, eleven years before.

The shooting began at 9:42 pm, local time, and for the next seven and a half hours the Americans trapped in Benghazi were crying for help. But help never came. Two former Navy seals ran – like the American heroes they were – not from the sound of gunfire but toward it. Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were not at the compound when the shooting started, defied orders and decided to go to the aid of the others. For seven hours these men fought with incredible skill and courage, and saved many American lives that night. They fought for their friends and their colleagues; and they fought for their country; and throughout that awful night they continued to radio their government for help. But their government never answered their call. And help never came.

The White House has put out false claims about what actually happened and denied us information about many of the details. But thanks to the congressional hearings we do know this: The president was informed of the attack in the very first hour. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and General Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told him exactly what was going on, since we had a reconnaissance drone circling overhead.

And we also know this: After the call informing him that Americans were fighting for their lives, President Obama disappeared. Went AWOL. In fact, no one knows where he went. All we know is that he could not be reached. He knew that a battle was raging, and that Americans were in danger. But while the men who served him were fighting for their lives the President of the United States of America hung up the phone and left his post, and disappeared.

He just didn’t care.

The next morning, although his ambassador had been tortured and murdered and his embassy attacked, President Obama flew to Las Vegas to attend a campaign fund-raiser with rapper Jay-Z and singer Beyonce. Before leaving he did take care of one piece of business. He took time to authorize a cover story to hide what he had done the day before.

The cover story is an emblem of Barack Obama’s presidency, an emblem of a man who doesn’t tell the truth. It claimed the attack was the work of civilian protesters, of a spontaneous demonstration that got out of hand over an Internet film that nobody saw but which insulted Mohammed. It was something the president couldn’t control. The president’s spokesperson apologized for the film.

The president promised to hunt down those responsible for the torture and murder of his ambassador Chris Stevens and for the deaths of those American heroes. He didn’t do that. But he did make sure that the filmmaker was put in jail. And then he went to the United Nations and told the delegates that the future must not belong to those who insult the Prophet of Islam. As for the Americans who were killed, they were collateral damage of a film that should not have been shown.

The facts were quite different. The President knew that Benghazi was a hotbed of al-Qaeda activity. Al-Qaeda had attacked the Benghazi compound twice – twice! – only one month before. The al-Qaeda attacks were so serious that Ambassador Stevens put in calls to his government for additional security – security that might have saved his life and the lives of the American heroes who died with him. But his calls went unanswered and his requests were denied.

Why? His government just didn’t care.

 *   *   *   *   *

Meanwhile, here at home, our nation is facing what will likely be the biggest non-military crisis in its history. In the last four years, President Obama has given us our first trillion dollar annual deficits. In four years, we have piled up six trillion dollars in additional debt. That’s six thousand billion dollars.

We are spending ourselves into bankruptcy. We are crippling our great nation. We are borrowing the money from our global adversaries. We are conducting a war on the young.

It is the young who are going to pay the bills that Obama is running up so recklessly. This is a generational injustice of epic proportions. This is the greatest transfer of wealth in human history… not from the rich to the poor, but from the young (who are struggling to begin their lives) to older people (who have had time to accumulate their nest eggs). Barack Obama is buying votes: not with his money. Not even so much with your money. He’s doing it with your children’s money. And they will be paying for his policies, long, long after he has packed up his golf clubs and gone home.

Do you know how much money you would owe if you were born today… just tonight, let’s say? Well, as a result of President Obama’s reckless spending, if you were born today, you would come into the world owing one million, five hundred and thirty-two thousand dollars. That’s how deep the hole he’s dug.

From the beginning of his presidency – actually from the beginning of his first presidential campaign – Barack Obama has repeatedly told the American people that he would not add a dime to the nation’s debt. He did not tell the truth. He has added six trillion dollars to the nation’s debt. And as far as he is concerned, he has only just begun.

Why is Obama spending us into oblivion? Because spending taxpayer dollars is a way of lining the pockets of his political friends – the government unions who got him elected; the government bureaucracies who feed off his programs; the Wall Street banks who underwrite his loans, and fill his campaign coffers. Obama is borrowing trillions of your children’s dollars – dollars they don’t even have yet — and is giving them to union and government bureaucrats and Wall Street bankers.

How could he do this? He just doesn’t care.

Federal bureaucrats earn higher salaries and get bigger pensions than the average working Jane and Joe. When Obama says we need to raise taxes, what he really means is the working Janes and Joes have to pay his political friends in government. Seventy cents of every dollar that’s supposed to go to the poor actually goes to Washington bureaucrats instead.  Seventy percent! That’s how Obama’s government programs work in practice: three dollars in food stamps for the needy, and seven dollars in salaries and pensions for the bureaucrats who are supposed to take care of them.

Are the poor still with us? Yes. Are their numbers increasing? Yes. Are record numbers of Americans getting food stamps on Obama’s watch? Yes! Are those numbers growing every day? YES!!

Does the president care?

((PAUSE FOR AUDIENCE))

*   *   *   *   *

I’ll tell you who’s not looking for work these days: Tiger Wood’s golf coach. Barack Obama paid him a lot of money for lessons so that he could play a few rounds with Tiger. That golf session costs you and your children several hundreds of thousands of dollars. But that’s your kids’ problem, not his. In four years, the president has spent more time on the golf links than he has spent meeting with congressional leaders trying to solve the debt problem, or with the Simpson-Bowles committee he appointed to reduce the deficit. He just doesn’t care.

You know who else is doing just swell? The people running the finest hotels in Aspen, and Spain, and the South of France, or in Hawaii, where Michele vacations – apart from her husband. All the security details, all the protocol, all the travel – your kids not only pay for that… they pay for it twice.

And like everything else he touches, when it comes to vacations, President Obama not only cannot stop spending – that would be bad enough. The fact is, he can’t stop increasing the rate of his spending. His 2010 Hawaii vacation cost 1.7 million dollars. In 2011 it more than doubled, to 4 million. The next year, it nearly doubled again: 7 million dollars for just the Hawaii vacation alone.

And as I said, this is a couple that actually seems to like to vacation apart from one another – and I can’t say I blame either one of them. In 2010 the First Lady went to Spain on vacation, and she took a BIG entourage of friends with her, too… cost to your kids: almost half a million dollars. In 2011 she went to visit Africa: another half-million.

Oh, by the way: when the First Family’s dog, Bo, needs something from Petco, he travels by motorcade – not too shabby. I’m not making this up! I wish I were. When your children ask you how they inherited a million and a half dollars in debt, you can tell them they have to pay for the limo for President Obama’s DOG.

In the midst of a national economic crisis, while the nation suffers, Barack and Michelle cavort like a latter day Louis the XVI and Marie Antoinette. Their attitude is, “Let them eat food stamps.”

Raise your hand if you’ve seen more than three pictures of Barack on a golf course or Michelle on tour.

((PAUSE))

Now raise your hand if you’ve seen more than three pictures of Barack Obama behind the desk of the Oval Office, doing – you know – the work he was elected to do?

((PAUSE))

A lot of people have noticed that. The First Couple is fond of the good life. Well of course they are. They don’t have to pay for it – you do. And for every dollar in taxes you pay, they borrow another 46 cents from your kids.

You’d be embarrassed to do that to someone else’s kids. But they’re not. You know why?

((PAUSE))

That’s right! THEY DON’T CARE!!

*  *   *   *  *

But the president does care about your health, doesn’t he? After all his most expensive bill is called “Obamacare.” Well, don’t be too sure. Remember this is a president who doesn’t tell the truth.

He didn’t tell the truth when he told you that you could keep your health care plan if you wanted to. The Congressional Budget office just issued a report saying that 7 million Americans will lose their employer-based health coverage because Obamacare makes private plans too expensive for employers to provide.

He told you his plan wouldn’t add a dime to the deficit. Well, he’s right about that. It doesn’t add a dime. It adds EIGHT TRILLION dimes – over 800 billion dollars. And that’s just for starters. The bill for Obamacare is already twice as big as he said it would be when he signed it into law. On the other hand, it’s another victory in his war on the young. Because they’re the ones who will get the bill.

The president didn’t tell the truth when he said Obamacare will cut your premiums by up to $2,500 per year. In fact, Obamacare will add about $4,000 per family per year. And that’s with its cheapest option.

And it just gets worse and worse. But guess what?

((PAUSE))

He doesn’t care.

*  *  *  *  *

Well, what about minorities, and the poor? Of course he cares about them, right? Obama is a Democrat and Democrats talk a good line about compassion. But when it comes to actually doing something about compassion, they just don’t care.

Washington, DC, Chicago, Illinois and Detroit, Michigan have been controlled by Democrats since Moses was just a tiny little boy, about this high…

Washington, Chicago and Detroit voted overwhelmingly for Obama. They just didn’t realize the two big things about him that he has revealed again and again since being elected: he doesn’t tell the truth, and he doesn’t care.

In Washington, DC, one in every three children, mainly African American children, live under the poverty line. In Chicago, Obama’s hometown, the rate is even higher, thirty-six percent. In Detroit, the poverty rate for children — again, mainly African American children — is twice that high: sixty percent. In all three cities, almost half the children in the Democrat-run public schools fail to graduate, and many of those who do graduate are functionally illiterate. That means they will never get a decent job or a shot at the American dream. But the Democrat teacher unions are happy. Their members have lifetime jobs and their pensions are good. It’s just the kids who suffer. But nobody cares.

The homicide rates in all three of these Democrat-run cities are off the charts. In Chicago they are referring to the mayhem as a “youth homicide epidemic.” But the president’s attention is not on the bloodshed in the inner city streets where homicide is the number one cause of death among young black males. Instead his eyes are focused on one school in Connecticut where a certified lunatic attacked a classroom of kids who otherwise would have never experienced a violent act in their young lives.

It goes on, and on, and on… and things get worse, and worse. If anybody else were bankrupting the country and putting millions on food stamps, and cavorting in fancy resorts while 23 million Americans were unemployed, they would be run out of the White House on a rail. And rightfully so.

But the president is good at telling stories and too many Americans still don’t get it: this is a president who doesn’t tell the truth, and a president who just doesn’t care.

My friends, it’s not easy for people who love their country as much as we do to watch these things happen before our very eyes. And it’s even harder for me, as a member of Congress, to be the one to have to come here and spell out all of this national disgrace to you in plain language.

And to be honest, our Republican friends have been too slow to bring these truths to the American people. Why aren’t Republicans pointing out that these large inner cities in America — Washington, Chicago, Detroit, and so many others – have been literally run into the ground by the Democrats for fifty or even a hundred years now? It’s time for the Republican Party to begin to plainly say, again and again, that everything that is wrong with these inner cities that public policy can affect, Democrats are responsible for. Every public school that doesn’t educate its children; every city council that doesn’t protect its citizens or create economic environments that produce jobs – have one thing in common: Democrats control them 100%. Democrats are responsible for them and should be made to answer for suffering they preside over.

Republicans must begin to tell the American people this basic truth. Just as Democrats are bankrupting our country, Democrats also have their boot heels on the necks of millions of poor black and Hispanic children in our inner cities, and are crushing the life opportunities out of them. And this generational catastrophe goes on year in and year out, while Democrats on school boards and in government bureaucracies spend billions on themselves and their pensions and their pet projects that require more and more of your money and your children’s money and show smaller and smaller and smaller results.

Some of us in Washington still care about things bigger than our golf games and our campaign coffers. Some of us still care about the poor, about inner city children who are not getting educated while teacher’s unions grow rich, and about the nation’s debt that grows larger and larger every day… a debt that has the newborn entering life as if they were pack animals, with millions of dollars of debt strapped to their backs. Some of us still care about the brave men and women who sacrifice their lives so that others may live. And some of us still care enough about the American people to stand up and tell them the truth.

Now you have to go out there and tell them the truth too! God bless you all, and God Bless our United States of America.

    So where is the chapter and verse movie that lays out the Benghazi story as truthfully told?. Where are the rich conservatives who would produce such a movie?. Where is the talented scriptwriter who would write it?

    • Mirjam

      It should be called "The truth about Benghazi!"

    • Questions

      You don't just "make a movie" within a few weeks. Do you have any idea how much time, effort and money it takes to produce a movie from scratch to official release? It takes several years to do it right. And yes, check out Kathryn Bigelow's fantastic "Zero Dark Thirty." It's out on DVD today.

      The purpose of film is to entertain and enlighten, not to provide ready-made agitprop at one's beck and call, reinforcing preexisting political beliefs.

    No, Horowitz, it is not at all the speech That Should Have Been Given At CPAC. As Captain Neil Turner brilliantly wrote http://beforeitsnews.com/u-s-politics/2013/03/rhe

    … Who (or what) is it that has the power to turn our parties, Media, our Courts, and our elected and appointed 'leaders' into deaf, dumb, and blind 'blithering idiots' when it comes to the question of who Obama/Soetoro/Soebaraka/Bounell is, his obvious ineligibility for the Office of President, and his obvious acts of treason?

    … Who (or what) has the power to take the issue of Obama's INELIGIBILITY and acts of TREASON off the table?

    … You must look yourself in the mirror each morning wondering "who (or what) has the power to make me lose my way … and my mind … and my shame … and my conscience?" For you too have been obfuscating or suppressing Obama's INELIGIBILITY and acts of TREASON for the last 5 years.

    As Mr. Spencer wrote, "it IS time for a new conservative movement, a genuine movement of freedom, one that is not compromised, not beholden, and not corrupted". And here is the Platform for this movement: http://www.resonoelusono.com/Platform.htm Is there enough patriots to gather under it?

    It ain't Obama that's the problem.

      Very astute. IT's the Orwellilan ignoramus voters who know nothing, read nothing, cannot even tell you who is their Senator or Representative……these are the dummies making "democracy" what it is….a pile of garbage.

      I believe we have crossed that line. the genie is already out of the bottle, and no one has the nerve to put it back in. That genie is lack of voter qualification. That is the biggest source of this problem, everyone gets to vote. And that should simply not be the case.

    A combination of Demsters – thugs-in-suits – and a gaggle of RINOS are ruling the roost, and this is why CPAC is incapable of fielding the harshest indictments against a regime gone wild, as well as a true way forward.

    In fact, CPAC holds to the Repub party platform, one in which the "Arab Spring" was feted as a democratic movement. You get that? So, why in the world would anyone at CPAC expect these same appeasers to step it up, thus allowing true conservative leaders to have their say – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/29/republican-na

    You guys are just nuts .. Honestly I'm dumbfounded at the utter stupidity of the GOP and their base .. Do yourselves a favour and stop watching Fox News and read some real impartial news and reporting … If you can't see that the reason why the great country of the US is in the disasterous state it's in is purely because of NeoCon ideologues , insane GOP in the house of reps who are all owned by the banks and Wall Street , the current state of politics in the US is utterly insane on both sides left and right .. Until you people understand that this whole left and right position is just smoke and mirrors … Both sides are evil and corrupt to the core … Picking a side means absolutely nothing .. But if you had any brains at all you wouldn't be listening to the insane ramblings of the GOP and especially The Tea Party ha ha ha unbelievable

      Like ummm….CNN? And MSNBC? How about your favorite MoveOn.org? Unfortunately, I read the NYT, WaPol, the BBC and many more foreign media outlets and guess what? Through my own assembling of the known information, I still think Mr.Obama is the worst president to ever hold the office.
      Democrats such as Pelosi, Reid, McCain and Luger before them are examples of what is wrong with congress. Waffling on issues is one thing I can barely tolerate, but outright lying on a regular basis is not and Obama and his admin have been doing so since day one.

      So Jaz, what is your answer to solve the problem, keeping in mind that those who are cemented in their powerful positions are not going to easily give it up to a bunch of libertarians who only seem interested in shutting down the narcotics laws and anarchists? What is it you support?

    During George W's time in the White House he had a name for Carl Rove, but I forget what it was, but Carl Rove is trying to rule the Republican Party and their AGENDA. He, Rove, criticized Sara Palin for speaking out. I believe Sarah Palin is right on the money. Carl Rove has turned me off, and a lot of other Republicans too. He, Rove, hand picked Romney, and Romney didn't win. Let us stop listening to Carl Rove, he is steering us down a wrong path.

  • Guest

    The speech is too long, too pathetic and not Conservative enough. It is sort of Dem-Light, Blue-dog-dem. Where is the defense of the Bill of Rights? Where in the speech is mentioned the continuos appeasement of the Sharia compliant countries that the administration is practicing? Where in the speech is mentioned that the new socio/economic policies pouring out of the WH are the result of the Democratic party far-left contingent's power grab? Where in the speech is exposed the fact that the administration is pressing for more and more executive and regulative power in its hands and by continuing the curtailing of the power of the states, actions that will lead ultimately to one-party-dictatorship? The speech gives gory details of the botched Benghazi mission but never asks the one question that would explain the need for the cover-up: Whi leaked the story to the media in the first place, for who ever did that was not aware of the amount of damage that the disclosure of a covert cia operation may cause? IMHO

    • Guest

      I wonder why people voted you down. You are correct. It was democrat lite and that seems to be the idea Karl Rove wants to push for. Why do we want to lean further left to grab more voters? We may as well vote democrat.

  • alkidya

    I hope Bill Whittle puts this speech in one of his Virtual Speeches.

  • DemetriusMinneapolis

    To be honest, I don't think this speech is that bad at all. The message is planted that Obama really doesn't care and they show examples of that. It targets those who are fence sitters and soft-core liberals who cannot see through the trees (and pop-culture-oriented liberal media).
    They cannot just go off spouting personal feelings in a speech, that leads to disaster. If you want hardcore, pull-no-punches conservative, tea party and free market loving speeches, just come over to my house for Sunday dinner. It's all there – plus a moist cottage roll.

    • Dave, NYS

      Watch Dr. Carsons speech. It was the best there. It touched on much that this FPM "speech" does.

  • STEVEN CHAVEZ

    I WOULD HAVE SAID: "Obama was born of COMMUNISTS. He was mentored by a COMMUNIST. He admitted to seeking out COMMUNIST professors. An article he wrote in Columbia's Sundial in 1983 on COMMUNIST student front groups with direct ties to the Soviet KGB, proves he also sought out COMMUNIST students. He found Chicago's COMMUNISTS and domestic terrorists. He has appointed COMMUNISTS in every department including the State Department, CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, and this on top of his COMMUNIST Czars. All these people are Obama's "CIRCLE OF COMMUNISTS."

    QUESTION: Since he is a magnate to COMMUNISTS, what does that make him? A COMMUNIST!!! Now does his whispering to Medvedev and relayed to Putin, and his cancelling Europe's Missile Defense, and inaction against Iran and Syria, both allies of Putin, make more sense now???

    • Judenlieber

      Steven,
      I agree with most of what you said, but the word "Communist" has been demonized for so long that a great percentage of the low information voter public will stop reading(or listening)the first time it is uttered. On the other hand "He doesn't care" is something I've never heard said about a sitting president before. (Although I had that thought myself many times during the Clinton Administration.)

      • STEVEN CHAVEZ

        "Communist" is a bad word because "Communists" want to make it so. "You're a Red-Baiter! Reeks of McCarthyism! Didn't you hear, Communism is over! Still looking for Communists under your bed?" On and on and they win the argument that never starts.

        What is the role of the Communist Party USA today? It's fun to go to their website at cpusa dot org and link to their People's World because their topic of day and articles ARE EXACTLY LIKE WHAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE FOCUSED ON! Why is that? Who writes these talking points first? The CPUSA is professional and learned from the best propagandists and writers of disinformation the world has ever seen: THE SOVIET KGB. The 1980's was the CPUSA and KGB most important era where university students were recruited to their "activism" and if you research Obama, and his "Circle of Communists," (I forgot the DOJ/Eric Holder), their "activism" can be traced to a CPUSA/KGB FRONT GROUP.

        I posed this question to David Horowitz back in 1989 when I heard him giving a speech here in Albuquerque. (Still have the article.) He kept calling everyone on the opposite side "Liberals." He eventually labeled them "Leftists." I called them "COMMUNISTS" due to their 80's "activism." He even wrote me to not call people "Communists" since that would discredit me. About a few months ago, he labeled them "Communists." Was David a Communist, Liberal, or a Leftist? He labeled himself as a "Communist" and yet he called the same type of people "liberals and leftists?"

        QUESTION TO HOROWITZ: "Are Communists liberals? Are liberals Communists."

  • Johnconrad

    The speech is right on.

    It illustrates the simple emotional argument of what has happened to the people the Democrats claim to be helping.

  • http://www.clarespark.com clarespark

    Somewhere there must be a conservative or Republican who sees what I see in the propaganda offensive of this administration. I summed it all up here: http://clarespark.com/2011/01/26/obama-and-the-rh…. "Obama and the rhetoric of the political family." This omnipresent rhetoric (used by both parties, I might add) is a form of strategic regression that infantiizes the electorate and keeps us dependent on the State or the Leader for everything.

    Why didn't someone let Orly Taitz speak at CPAC about the lies our President has told about his identity? CPAC, Breitbart, Pam Geller threw her out of the hall. It's a sad day for the truth among "conservatives", isn't it!

    Benghazi is to Obama what Chappiquiddik was to Ted Kennedy. Regarding the latter: Chappiquiddik revealed character problems that Teddy already had for a long time. The Benghazi tragedy likewise reveals character issues Obama has had all along.

  • RebeccaJean

    I think Obama cares. I think he cares about bankrupting our country and bringing us to our knees so that he can remake the government and America into a socialistic/marxist utopian leftwing fantasy. I believe it has been said many times before that the only thing standing in the way of Marxist countries success is America.

  • samnlranch

    I don't think "not caring" is really his problem. It's more sinister than that. He does it intentionally, he wants to bring down this republic, and fundamentally change this country. He doesn't work for us even though he pretends he does; he works for some other group of people who want to fundamentally change the USA. It's totally heart breaking. How could so many people be duped into destroying their own country?

      While I agree with you, this is a losing electoral message.

      People don't want to think they voted for someone like that – so they'll go into denial.

    Please look-back to learn what was / is ahead if the U.S. remains on the current course and to think about who will be at the controls of the Ship of State if major corrections are not made soon.

    Sarah Palin had plenty of good things to say in her speech. She is the best.

    • BS77

      Sarah Palin is a great conservative and role model. Unfortunately, the leftist media attacked her relentlessly ….and still does.

  • Jeff Ludwig

    This speech is so painfully true that the anguish I now feel prevents me from writing more. I am suffering greatly since November.

    • Dennis

      Hey Jeff – Don't let the bastards get you down.

      Please take note:

      1. Back in the '70s, I met a little old Jewish man who worked as a Busboy at a Deli.
      He had a number tattooed on his arm. The waitresses told me what that number was and that he had outlived the one who had placed it there. He survived.

      2. Back in the '80s we were invited to a Vietnamese wedding. A middle age Vietnamese man sat at the same table. He did not speak English, but the daughter of the Bride acted as the translator for both sides of our discussion. This man had been a captive of the NVA and spent 2 years in a TIGER CAGE. He survived.

      JEFF, YOU WILL SURVIVE! BE A HERO AND KEEP WRITING YOUR COMMENTS.

      AMERICANS ARE SEEKING EVERYDAY HEROES…..LADY LIBERTY COULD BE THE SINGER OF THIS SONG:….YOU CAN BE THE HERO FOR HER…..TAKE PEN IN HAND AND WRITE!

    Actuall;y, he cares a great deal.

    Unfortunately, it's WHAT he cares ABOUT that is the problem. He cares mostly about himself and expanding his own power so he can rule. He cares a little about his supporters, so he uses that power to help them, but his supporters are not his voters, his supporters are his mega wealthy donors, celebrities and media allies.

    Barry is a sick man.

    • Lady_Dr

      Actually all Leftest are sick. They are like 12 year old girls, full of themselves, emotionally, easily angered, immature, demanding, irrational, and incapable of thinking of anything but themselves and their delusions etc., etc., etc.

  • drivesguy

    The best speech given at CPAC was by Dr. Benjamin Carson. The funniest one was be Sarah Palin.

    Dr. Carson was the one who clearly articulated how Obama plans to destroy America.

    What really Bites me is the fact that we have such spineless leaders for Congressmen. I have repeated called for Articles of Impeachment to be drawn up against Obama for Fast and Furious, Benghazi, and the suppression of freedom of conscience against Catholic Charitable institutions.

    • guest

      Where was Carson in 2008? Backing Obama.

  • Rob

    Let us stop whining about the president's shortcomings that we can do nothing to change. Let us rise above the things he does that infuriate us. Let us focus on actionable items that we can influence, change or repeal. As for Benghazi…why are we trying to continue to nail BHO–He is a lame duck…we have to begin thinking about 2016…Hillary (who is at least equally responsible) seems to have gotten a free pass, if we don't rightfully attach Clinton to Benghazi now I can assure you it will not happen in 2016. As for some of the domestic cultural issues our Conservative leaders tend to constantly get nailed to…let them go! I like J Behner, but please, we don't need him pontificating on national news where his postion is shaped and presented as representing all republicans and personifies intolerance. Gay marriage, gay civil union what really is the difference? They are just words….and words have many definitions…some we like, some we don't. Let the church decide to sanctify the union–or not. Let's focus on issues with hard and fast facts, presented honestly and simply. Present plans, programs and bills that are actionable. If they are good and true their value will be self evident and the independent voters will buy into them. Own the agenda! Put BHO and those who would replace him on the defensive.

  • Ghostwriter

    I've got to admit. That was pretty good.

  • Mrs. Rene O'Riordan

    It's quite logical to come to the conclusion Obama doesn't care but I've moved on a little bit from that, I think he does care, he cares a lot about how to destroy America and he has been amazingly successful in this. Why would he do such a daft thing? Perhaps he hates America, perhaps he hates the freedoms in America, perhaps he would like to see a dictator in place – after all he has encouraged islamic dictators all over the ME and has so often pulled the rug out from under the only true democracy in the ME – Throwing away American money would also help to destroy America – yep I think he cares all right – Rene

  • Nancy Mersereau

    We need Senator Rand Paul (M.D.)and Ben Carson, M.D. They are brilliant logical thinkers and love America. Old guard Republicans need to step down. Support new Republicans that "get it".

  • Western Spirit

    The Republicans are a pitiful opposition party. If they weren't Obama would have gone the way of Carter before him nor would we have millions of foreigners voting in our elections.

    We have no leadership from either party all we have is an eternal campaigner playing the public for all he's worth as the country goes to hell.

  • Dana Brigham

    Please forgive me but that reads like Michelle's good speech. However, David you of all people, know that Obama never lies for the simple reason that a Communist always tells the truth according to Communist standards.
    When Obama took the constitutional oath of office he swore to preserve, protect ,and defend it. Instead everything he has done is an intentional attack to destroy it. The Communist persuasion is still one of only two persuasions of faith identified by Whittaker Chambers in his book Witness.
    Obama's single eyed focus is to tell the Communist truth. In a world of blind people, a one eyed man is king. No nation has defeated the Communist truth by ignoring it and we are ignoring it after fighting it across the world to date under different names and manifesto's.
    It is time we come home where charity begins at the doorway of the Constitution where Art IV §4 promises to every state a Republican Form of Government and protection against invasion by illegal persons.

  • zsqpwxxeh

    Great speech! Lacks just one thing: "The conservative leader who will fight to remove every vestige of this disgraceful regime and restore sane, constitutional government to the United States is___________."

    Without leadership, with more Romneys and McCains and Bushes, the Democrats will continue to laugh at us and control the federal government for decades to come. We need a fighter. No smiling, no compromise on immigration or budget cuts, no sucking up to the media, no reaching across the aisle. Political war until the arrogance of Obama and his hacks is crushed.

  • Omar

    I wouldn't compare our opponents in the administration to King Louis XVI of France. Louis XVI was an American ally who supported our struggle for independence against the British. Louis was overthrown by the French Revolution (which was secretly supported and financed by King George III of Britain) which created Communist totalitarianism. A more accurate analogy for our opponents would be to compare them to Maxwell Robespierre, the leader of the Communist Jacobins who instigated the Reign of Terror in France after the Revolution.

  • santababy

    First, I believe that Obama and his wife are purposefully spending as much as they can on themselves while they can, and second, I believe they think they are owed those "free" gifts. I believe they want to "stick it" to the American citizens of all income groups. Both are morally corrupt and both do NOT want to see The United States of America succeed. They want it to collapse and they are going at warp speed to get us there. Just like the article says, "They do not care". It is a picture of perfected crony capitalism!
