…a letter that should be read in all corners.

As a Veteran, I will never support any of the douche-bag sell outs that are running the GOP or voted for this bill.

Your failure is complete.

This letter says it all.

To Congressman Paul RyanToday

Congressman Ryan,

Please note that this request by you for a cash donation from me is extremely unfortunate and very ill-timed. You see sir, I am one of the military retirees your “bipartisan” budget just impacted. You and every Republican both in the House and Senate that voted to pass this travesty betrayed and broke trust with me and everyone like me. You may not know us by name, but we’re the people, Congressman, who answered our Nation’s call, some of us at a very early age to willingly serve YOU and others LIKE YOU so you could safely attend college and pursue your personal ambitions without fear of harm.

You might also want to note that for at least 20 years, my brothers-in-arms answered that call of duty EVERY SINGLE DAY, without fail, without complaint, without enough money to sustain our loved ones we had to leave behind while we DID OUR JOB in every corner of the Earth. And for that service, we were given absolute assurance our so-called retirement benefits would be protected by law. The very law you shattered in your zeal to impress your Democratic cohorts in your back room deal–with the enemy. Yes, I said it. The liberal Democrats are an enemy to the American people and our Nation. Your lack of judgement and eagerness to compromise on the backs of us who protected you is sickening. Congressman, you and every Republican that voted for injuring military retirees have engaged in a complicit, sordid affair with the Democrats who’s objective has always been to dismantle the military. By climbing into their bed on this issue, you have confirmed you are absolutely no better than they and have proven it with your vote.

Congressman Ryan, the audacity which you display is noteworthy, but to unceremoniously snatch earned money from a small group that has added so much more value than the paltry $6B you looked to “save” which is all smoke and mirrors and you know it, is reprehensible and insulting.

We have, despite the hardships, meager salaries and harsh conditions, have performed with honor and excellence…in silence, which is something most members of Congress have no idea about doing. Our job approval was, is and always be better than yours. We knew our mission and we got it done, then handed it off to a new generation in better shape than we found it.

Your ability to look us in the eye, take money from us apparently there was ZERO, other source of waste within the federal government that you could have recovered this money from…right, got it, while simultaneously holding your hand out to beg with passion for our cash is stunning. Your actions have proven you do not have the tremendous intellect you’ve sold the American people on. I say, with all seriousness, Congressman, what you lack in intellect and spinal rigidity, you make up for in cajones.

I hope you and your cowardly, Republican “colleagues” hear a message from me loud and clear. You will NEVER receive another cent of financial support from me. Further, if you happen to be at a Capitol Hill dinner or at a K Street cocktail party with RNC Chair Reince Priebus, Rep. Ron Barber, Sen. Jeff Flake or Sen. John McCain, I would be honored if you communicate with them that I am launching an effort to ensure NONE of you traitorous “representatives of the people” ever receive another vote from a military retiree. Remove me from your contact lists.

…comes from Michelle Malkin’s piece The Amnesty Mob vs. America.

The whole article is a good read.

Here’s the quote:

Rubio, Ryan and other Republicans who’ve made common cause with these welfare-state goons have betrayed fundamental principles of limited government and the rule of law. They’ve allied themselves with the mob. There’s nothing, not one thing, “conservative” about mass illegal alien amnesty. It’s the complete Chicago-ization of America.

…up front. I’m easily amused.

Here’s the latest Romney ad:

Founding principles.

…that hits Biden’s stupid grin and laughter during the debate.
Pretty damn quick.

I did. And I was appalled at the conduct of the Vice President and the moderator was in the tank for the Dems. It was that obvious.
Biden interrupted Ryan 82 times during the debate and Raddatz interrupted Ryan 31 times. That was one of the worst debate showings I’ve ever seen.
Raddatz started out well, but quickly changed her tact in the middle of the debate and seemed to become a third debater, but not an equal debater. She yammered at Ryan and wouldn’t do the same to Biden.
Biden’s joker grimace was something to behold as well. He must be proud of those veneers.

When with fools, be sure to answer their foolish arguments, or they will become wise in their own estimation.

…of Paul Ryan’s speech. I enjoyed the speech a lot. He hit a lot of points that will definitely hurt the Obama campaign’s efforts. Those that are just now starting to pay attention to politics will look at this and wonder what the hell the MSM has been doing these last four years. They obviously weren’t doing their job.

Over at Townhall.com there’s a good analysis of the speech, with highlights from it that you should go take a look at.

Wednesday Night Grand Slam
Guy Benson

GOP Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan delivered exceptionally strong remarks in Tampa tonight, capping off an incredible hour of nationally-televised speeches from Republican headliners.  The construction and tone of Ryan’s address was masterful.  He was serious, earnest, likeable — and he took apart President Obama’s record with great skill and relish.  The Congressman opened with a stark assessment of the dismal campaign President Obama has been forced to run, due to his failed record in office:

I’m the newcomer to the campaign, so let me share a first impression.  I have never seen opponents so silent about their record, and so desperate to keep their power.  They’ve run out of ideas.  Their moment came and went. Fear and division are all they’ve got left.  With all their attack ads, the president is just throwing away money – and he’s pretty experienced at that.  You see, some people can’t be dragged down by the usual cheap tactics, because their ability, character, and plain decency are so obvious – and ladies and gentlemen, that is Mitt Romney.
