Rubio’s Victory Speech A Real Stemwinder

I began to learn a little about Marco Rubio during the 2008 Florida Primary, when as an influential state legislator, Rubio endorsed Mike Huckabee for President. The more I got to know about Rubio, the more impressed I became.

I also recall a good interview of Rubio by K-Lo over at NRO, shortly before Rick Santelli’s famous rant on CNBC. That rant gave rise to the tea party movement.

Maybe Rubio was just the right guy at the right time. But, not long after that, the groundswell for a Marco Rubio candidacy to oppose the “inevitable” nomination of Charlie Crist began to grow.

Last night’s victory speech for Senator-elect Rubio was outstanding. It is a real pleasure to present it to you.

LTC. Allan West: Honor And Integrity Apply To Him, Not His Opponent

If for some reason you aren’t familiar with LTC. Allan West(ret.), it is time you were.

This gentleman was first put in our nation’s spotlight in 2003, after being relieved of his command with 2nd Battalion 20th Field Artillery. LTC. West had physically assaulted an Iraqi policeman, firing his side arm into a barrel near the detainee and threatened to kill him. The detainee then revealed information about a planned ambush on his convoy. From that time in late August until October 2003 when LTC. West was relieved of his command, there were no further ambushes on U.S. forces in Taji.

When later asked at a hearing by a defense attorney if he would repeat that action, given the circumstances,
LTC. West replied:

“If it’s about the lives of my men and their safety, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can.”

That is the quality of character this man possesses. It is further reflected by ninety five members of Congress signing a letter in support of LTC. West to the Secretary of the Army.

Two videos from a recent town hall meeting, where he is in a very tight race for Florida’s District 22 House race.
Notice the comfort and sincerity in dealing with a questioner and how the audience responds to him.

Currently, the House seat he is running for is considered a toss up. The most recent poll taken several months ago had West leading by two points.

Now, his opponent wants to roll in the mud.

A charity gala scheduled for September, the South Florida Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, had extended an invitation for LTC. West and his wife, Angela, to be honored as South Florida Finest Couple.
That invitation hasn’t been rescinded, instead an executive with the CFF has asked LTC. West to “withdraw” from the event.
A more cowardly act couldn’t be imagined.
The entire story is found at WND.

Knowing what honor and integrity mean; knowing that doing the right thing often has consequences, I can only imagine the anger and frustration LTC. West must have felt when he received that disgraceful phone call.

If LTC. West needed any further evidence, as to how low down and dirty his jackass opponent would play, he certainly knows now.

I’m confident LTC. West is man enough for the challenge and I sincerely hope the voters in Florida can clearly see the high quality candidate he is, versus the low quality of character his Øbummer supporting opponent has.

It’s only one hundred and one days until the mid-term election. Still plenty of time for the left to continue to show us how unfit for high office they truly are, and for us to vote them out for great candidates like LTC. West.

Hope for the Gulf Coast

An all natural, non-toxic oil emulsifier that is completely biodegradable, and has been proven to work on an oil sludge in Wyoming, offers hope to residents of the Gulf Coast.

Update: Video report

The product is the work of an Ocala, Florida company named Global Petroleum Environmental Technologies. It’s called Ecosafe.

From FirstCoastNews ….. ”  the U.S. Department of Energy, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, a congressman, and a leading environmental agency have praised the patented Ecosafe.

But the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has not approved it, and until it does, Ecosafe cannot be used to clean up the Gulf oil spill.

You would think that an Administration that has made a living peddling hope would be all over this. Not this time, however.

Why?

Yesterday, Obama’s Secty of State reminded us of the Obama Mantra, “Never waste a good crisis.”

And, in an email sent out today, President Obama claimed that “… from the beginning, we have worked to deploy every tool at our disposal to respond to this crisis.

Well, not every tool, including one that is called, “most effective method of oil cleanup.”  And not Ecosafe, either.

How do you explain Team Obama’s disregard for the Gulf?  FecklessnessIncompetence? Or is it something else?

Obama has known from the beginning that the gusher would likely last for months. In fact, he was first briefed in April on how bad the spill would be. Some have concluded that Obama has decided to use this crisis to revive cap and trade legislation. Interestingly, the same EPA that is blocking Ecosafe has promised to implement cap and trade through regulatory procedures in the event that Congress fails to pass legislation.

Others have questioned if it is a red state-blue state thing. I’m not that cynical. Not yet, anyway.

Which brings me back to David Clark and Fernando deTorres of Ecosafe. They told FCN,

“There is a public out there without hope.

They think, ‘we can’t remediate our marshes.'”

Ecosafe is offering hope to the Gulf. Hope that is based on proven results, not rhetoric.

Are you listening Mr. President?
