Dear Republicans – STFU and Let’s Get This Done

September 18, 2012 at 7:44 pm (2012 Election, 47%, Alexa Shrugged, Andrew Breitbart, Conservatives, Mitt Romney, President Obama, Republicans)

As we sit here watching a President who ignores a world and a U.S. economy burning in chaos, while instead doing photo shoots for the Hispanic version of People Magazine, or spending the weekend watching football, or holding fundraisers with Jay-Z, the media is dictating to us what is truly important – Mitt Romney caught on video telling his wealthy donor audience that 47% of the Obama-era electorate are dependent on government.

In other words, *gasp* the truth.

The incident has led to in-fighting on the right, with beltway Republicans choosing to take up the fight for the President’s campaign and excoriate Romney for his candid remarks.

Why?

When the Weekly Standard tried to convince people that all conservatives agreed that Romney was wrong with his remarks, it prompted Erick Erikson of RedState to respond, “Like hell.

And now, Alexa Shrugged has penned the single best response to the ‘secret tape’ argument, with her own argument that represents a majority of the thinking on the right side of the blogosphere.  She has been kind enough to allow us to re-post the piece here.

I’ve gotta get blatantly partisan and maybe ruffle a few feathers, but hopefully wake some people up.  We are 48 days away from the election.  This is do or die, the fate of our country is at stake.  The infighting is over, the circular fire-squad must end, the criticisms of our candidate must be held until after the election, the Reagan 11th commandment must be adhered to – this may be controversial to say, but it must be said and must be done if we are to win.  

President Obama has been an utter failure and the focus right now should be on the Middle East which is on fire – and a US ambassador was ASSASSINATED!!!! for the first time since the Iran hostage crisis – plus the economy is in the toilet.  If you have concerns about the optics of things Romney says – his press conference on Egypt was too early, it shouldn’t have blamed Obama, the 47% quote is bad – even if you truly believe this stuff, even if you think these issues are of Romney’s own making and he is a bad candidate, I must say to you right now: STFU!!!!!  

You are being a useful idiot by providing cover for the left and MSM to make this into a huge story instead of the actual things going on in the world that matter you are giving Obama further campaign ads – “Romney sucks – even X conservative says so!”  The fact that you have qualms about Romney “gaffes” ONLY hurt us, there is no possible positive outcome for you saying it.  Don’t give me the “I’m just being objective, I’m maintaining my independence and integrity,” etc. I don’t care about your self-centered righteous indignation – forget you and your personal vanity – this isn’t about YOU, we have a country to save.  So, STFU!!!!!  

You can easily find things in what Romney has said to agree with – if you can’t get over the 47% number of people who don’t pay income taxes, then turn the discussion into a broader point of big government dependence vs. individual independence and the American creed – what kind of country do we really want to be?  Or focus on his truth on Israel and the Palestinians not wanting peace from that same donor video.  Or attack Obama and his administration for ignoring warnings about the September 11th embassy attacks. Or the fact that Brownshirts took in a film maker in the middle of the night because he exercised his free speech rights to criticize a religion.

There is so much material, you should not be wasting one second going after Romney for supposed “gaffes.”

Get in line, defend Romney, or at the very least focus every breath on attacking Obama as if your life depended on it – because it does, if not literally, then at least the quality of your life and all future generations.  This is desperation time, do or die, leave it all on the field.

“Let’s get this done. We can do this.” – Paul Ryan.  WE MUST DO THIS!

Thank you.

Signed, 

A die-hard conservative who cannot live under another 4 years of Obama and will do ANYTHING to win in November

You know who would have whole-heartedly agreed, and been supremely proud of Alexa’s words?  Andrew Breitbart.

At his CPAC 2012 speech, Breitbart made this incredibly important point:

I don’t care who our candidate is and I haven’t since the beginning of this. I haven’t! Ask not what the candidate can do for you, ask what you can do for the candidate! …

When I walk through CPAC or a I travel the United States to meet people in the Tea Party who care – black, white, gay, and straight – anyone that’s willing to stand next to me to fight the progressive left, I will be in that bunker.

And if you’re not in that bunker because you’re not satisfied with [a certain] candidate, more than shame on you! You’re on the other side!

The choice is clear.  You’re either in that bunker with Alexa and Andrew, supporting and fighting for Mitt Romney … or you’re on the other side.

Which is it?

Obama Snubs Netanyahu, Meets with Jay-Z Instead

September 18, 2012 at 11:00 am (Benjamin Netanyahu, Beyonce, Ed Cox, Jay-Z, New York, President Obama)

Today, New York GOP Chairman Ed Cox released the following stattement:

“Once again, we’re happy to welcome President Obama back to New York State, where our unemployment rate (9.1%) is a full point above the national average.

America and the world are in crisis: unemployment is still high, our national debt has topped $16 trillion, our embassies are burning and Iran is closer than ever to becoming a nuclear nation.

Against this backdrop, Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu asked Barack Obama for a meeting.

Obama turned down the request from the leader of America’s closes ally in the Middle East.

Instead, the President of the United States will be hobnobbing with Jay-Z and Beyonce at a $40,000-per-person, 100-person fundraiser at the swank 40/40 Club – that’s a cash haul of $4 million for the President.

Put another way, Obama will leave New York with $4.68 for every one of our state’s unemployed workers.

America needs a President more interested in the status of our allies abroad and our unemployed at home than in partying with celebrities: America needs Mitt Romney in the White House.”

E-Mails Reveal Justice Department Coordinating With Media to Spin Scandals

September 18, 2012 at 9:00 am (Eric Holder, Hans von Spakovsky, J. Christian Adams, Justice Department, Media Bias, Media Matters, New Black Panther Party, Scandal)

They do this over in state-run media loving China, don’t they?

Via the Daily Caller:

Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by The Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.
Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. 
(RELATED: Complete coverage of Media Matters for America)
Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal.
Holden attacked former DOJ Civil Rights Division attorneys J. Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky on Sept. 20, 2010 for what he called an attempt “to reignite the phony New Black Panther Party scandal.”

Read the rest here… 

This story should be a bombshell to the American people, but let’s see how the Obama-friendly media spins it.  The reason any government official coordinating with the media is big news is because this is what they do in Communist countries.  It’s propoganda.

The fact that they coordinated with Media Matters is even more troublesome, because in another Daily Caller investigation, the group had bragged about writing the ‘prime time’ news for other media outlets.

Coordinated, undeniable, media bias.
