Queens Village Lincoln Dinner with Guests Speakers
The Queens Village Lincoln Dinner for the Republican Club was in many ways a rejuvenated political party. The City Council just had a major influx of republicans unseat 5 democrats. Now a year ago nobody would have saw that coming. One of the 5 that attended was Dan Halloran who blew us all away with his rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Dan who ran a great campaign against a democratic machine that used all its’ influence to try and claim district 19 was propelled to victory by the superhuman efforts of his voters. This win over a very strong Kevin Kim who had Chuck Schumer stumping for him was very telling about the mood of the people. It was elections like this that made the Scott Brown victory in Massachusetts happen. The main speaker of the event was Ms. Betsy McCaughey. Betsy is featured regularly on the political talk show circut and her knowledge in medicine and health care is beyond question even by the most harshest of critics. Pile on top of that her P.h. D in constitutional history and you have a powerhouse of credibility giving supporters of this Obamacare Nightmare headaches beyond medicine.
Another notable award was given to Candace de Russy, P.h.D. An expert on education and cultural issues. After the talk of the lefts relentless pursuit of a socialist agenda they promptly spoke of National Security and the Administrations obsession with attacking the ones’ that protect us (C.I.A.)and protecting the ones that attacks us.(KSM and co.) Well the people at this dinner most definately had a problem with that.
These recent victories across the country by the GOP or the chosen candidate of the Tea Party has all the pundits scratching their collective heads. Virginia and New Jersey both have newly elected republican governors and the real stake through the heart of the DNC was the loss of Ted Kennedy’s Senate seat in Massachussets. Stunning how a young President with the whole world behind him and a loving media has managed to completely polarize almost everybody and as it stands now people who are up for the 2010 elections are opting not to have Obama speak for them on their behalf. How is it the man who told us about the healing of our world and nation was about to occur suddenly with super majorities in both houses cannot pass his holy grail of a Health Care Bill.
As much as they hem and haw about us being the party of no and being the obstructionist ones we all know they are using this charade to mask the fact that the bill is so costly and government-controlling that the dems will pay serverely come November. BTW there was an ammendment 28 that stated if you vote for this H.C. bill you will automatically be put onto one of the government regulated health plans immediately. Do you know how many voted for that provision…………..Zero! That should tell you something.
GOP Tea Party is watching you better be good. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtZacrTh-H4
