Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


We swagger in Texas

I love this man.

Cowboy hats from the Texas delegation.

Best quote to me:
In the last four years, you and I have come to know each other. Even when we don't agree, at least you know what I believe and where I stand. You may have noticed I have a few flaws, too. People sometimes have to correct my English -- I knew I had a problem when Arnold Schwarzenegger started doing it. Some folks look at me and see a certain swagger, which in Texas is called "walking." Now and then I come across as a little too blunt -- and for that we can all thank the white-haired lady sitting right up there.

He has integrity. You could see his chin quiver as he talked about comforting victims of 9-11 or those who lost military family members. He sincerely cares about his country.

There aren't many left in this world. Here is his speech if you'd like to read it.

I do wish he'd quit the compassionate conservativism crap. Army of Dad hates the way he tries to pander to different groups. I tend to agree with that. I think he tries to pacify people and he should just hitch up his pants and do what he feels is right. That is one thing I love about this man.

The first time I met him, I ambushed him at the Petroleum Club in Midland. He was so gracious to me. I asked for his autograph at that time and he even spelled my name right, which NO ONE ever does. That alone, to me, indicated he had a few brain cells firing.

I love this man. Honorable - the best word I have for him.

    I agree AOM, there is nothing phony about "W". He is the real deal. I know he loves this country and will fight for what he believes no matter the polling data. But I also agree with AOD, he plays into the notion of pandering to the left a little too much. Giving opportunity and giving hand-outs are vastly different goals, sometimes he's too eager to lean on the hand-outs. But he is the second best president in my lifetime, with Reagan being the best.

    I don't do politics, but I watched last night and it just plain rocked. Put me and Mrs Bane in the mood, and the evening ended with a bang.

    That bit about his mom, is absolutely right on. I thought she was going to put me over her knee for being late one night. That’s what she said she had “a mind to”. The look in the Secret Service guys eye lead me to believe that she must have tried recently and that I better let her if she did.
