The Nominee speaks, courtesy www.MittRomney.com:

Boston, MA – Today, Mitt Romney released the following statement on clinching the required number of delegates for the Republican nomination.

“I am honored that Americans across the country have given their support to my candidacy and I am humbled to have won enough delegates to become the Republican Party’s 2012 presidential nominee. Our party has come together with the goal of putting the failures of the last three and a half years behind us. I have no illusions about the difficulties of the task before us.

The Sentinel’s Creed

My dedication to this sacred duty

is total and whole-hearted.

In the responsibility bestowed on me

never will I falter.

And with dignity and perseverance

my standard will remain perfection.

Through the years of diligence and praise

and the discomfort of the elements,

I will walk my tour in humble reverence

to the best of my ability.

It is he who commands the respect I protect,

his bravery that made us so proud.

Surrounded by well meaning crowds by day,

alone in the thoughtful peace of night,

this soldier will in honored glory rest

under my eternal vigilance.

Barack Obama Struggles to Defeat a Felon in West Virginia Primary Election

by Jim Mullen 

Pundits are apoplectic, Democratic Party officials flabbergasted, and giggles still echo over the nations’Jim Mullen airways over last Tuesday’s Democratic Presidential primary in West Virginia. 

It looks as if 41% of all the Democrats voting in the West Virginia presidential primary election preferred a man as their President, who is currently serving a 17-year sentence in a federal prison in Texas, over; you guessed it, Barack Obama. 

Some wail this is a disgrace and an embarrassment to the people and the State of West Virginia. They lament that it feeds the stereotypical view of West Virginians as back woodsy, ill-informed, and unsophisticated. To which Mountaineers should reply, Balderdash! 

It’s about time that Democrats from around the nation awaken from the nightmarish hijacking of their Fathers’ and Grandfathers’ Democratic Party by the Marxist, Barack Obama, and his far-left extremists. 

The Mountain State became fed up watching their coal-fired economy being systematically dismantled by a President claiming to represent middleclass Americans. We have a President so determined to feed his leftist base that he is keeping his promise to destroy coal and every other form of carbon-based fuel and drive the cost of energy to levels that will make his dreams of “green energy” seem cheap by comparison. 

West Virginians’ from the hills of the dying coal mines to the already dead steel mills, and the farmland in between, are in full retaliatory mode to the declaration of war declared by Barack Obama and the leaders of the Democratic Party. Two of those party leaders are U.S. Senators Jay Rockefeller and Joe Manchin. Rockefeller is overtly abetting Obama in his war on coal while lying about his treachery to the voters. Now a Senator, Joe Manchin was such a disciple of Obama’s Cap-and-Trade scheme that he led the passage of his own version when he was the Governor. He apparently believed the lies of the left, and began his process of betrayal for the double-dealing promises of billions of dollars in federal money for clean coal technologies.  

One must wonder was Manchin really duped by the slick-talking “Barack” as he called him while openly endorsing him for President, or whether he actually believed a war on coal would be good for West Virginians. Either way, it was an amazing transformation from a “We need Barack” Governor to an “I’m not sure if I’ll vote for Obama” Senator in a little over three years. One thing is sure, Obama’s war on coal is a war on all Americans – not just West Virginians. 

West Virginia Secretary of State, Natalie Tennant, another Democrat, is catching much of the criticism for allowing Keith Judd, the felon that gave Obama a good fight for President from behind bars, on the ballot. She explained that Judd met the federal qualifications, and she had no authority to exclude him from the ballot. Others point out that she could have denied his application and forced him to take his complaint to court. The point would be; I assume, to accuse Tennant of incompetence, which is an easy case to make considering her abysmal record. Nonetheless, for a state official to deny a federally qualified person a spot on the ballot for a federal office is legally questionable. 

Accusations, blame, and angst naturally abound in West Virginia and the media, when a state that’s been perennially and steadfastly in the Democratic Party’s pocket, holds such utter contempt for the party chief and President of the United States. A convicted felon incarcerated in a Texas prison polling 41% of the Democratic vote against Obama leaves  an eerie pall hanging over the Democratic Party, the Obama administration, and the entire far-left culture. 

One must also remember; political theater is never lasting but political chicanery is everlasting. The huffing and puffing promises of most politicians are nearly always overridden by their lying, deceitful, nature. 

However, Obama did announce his intentions in off-the-cuff remarks without the benefit of his Tele Prompter. His proclamations about bankrupting anyone trying to build a coal-fired power plant, and making electricity prices skyrocket were plainly understood by some but ignored by most. People were either not paying attention, or used the old “I know what you said, but I thought what you really meant was…” excuse.     

Perhaps the great state of West Virginia is a harbinger of grand things to come and not merely the protestation of a tyrant. The people could be living up to their state motto, Montani semper liberi (Mountaineers are always free). The other 49 states should take notice and send the oppressor back to community organizing in Chicago.

Obama: Most Dangerous ‘Bait and Switch’ in American History

by Jim Mullen 

In the storied history of our nation, in times of crises, the cream of the American populace blessed ourJim Mullen country by rising to the top. When great leadership was required, honorable men stepped forward out of a sense of duty and service to lead our Republic with strength, honor, bravery, and wisdom. 

Unfortunately, however, there were times it seemed we picked our leaders from the squalid backwaters of society and discovered that pond scum also rises to the top. 

Most Americans recoil in disgust when shameful and corrupt  politicians use the sacred trust of the people for their own self-gratifying ideology or enrichment. Inversely, the nation reveres the heroes who answer the clarion call of leadership when we face hardship or peril. Since the birth of our republic, men were always there to lead the country to extraordinary victories in times of the most trying adversities. 

Likewise, when the nation was afflicted with thieves, crooks, liars, and wannabe tyrants, good men repaired much of the damage inflicted by political scumbags and restored the country to reasonable health. 

The leftwing media and Democrats foisted Barack Obama upon America, promising a President to make Lincoln proud. As it turned out, we got a charlatan masterfully trained in the art of misdirection and deception by the words of Saul Alinsky and Karl Marx. A man with a personal agenda so radically anti-American, that he surely would not be President if properly vetted. 

Just when the country needed a man trained and skilled in economics to lead us to a proven and self-sustaining, free enterprise system, we got a Marxist that believes in a redistributive economy controlled by an all-powerful, centralized federal government. We needed a man to create an atmosphere conducive to job creation by private business, but we got a sworn enemy of capitalism and the free enterprise system who believes in the failed premise that government must create jobs and control commerce. 

When Americans needed a CEO, we got a community-organizing activist. When we needed a General, we got an apologist. Promised a Statesman, we got a President who alienated our friends, encouraged and gave comfort to our enemies from his first day in office. We need a Churchill – we got Neville Chamberlain. 

The media assured us he was a President who would heal and unite the country. We got a man who looks under every rock for racism and turns up every corner of every issue looking for insensitivity and political correctness. Obama fans the flames of divisiveness like none other in the history of the presidency. He fails in all that is important to a free people and blames his failures on others. Dividing everyone by class, race, gender, religion, and national origin is his only hope for reelection. He offers excuses, blame, and bravado – none of which solves problems, creates jobs or furthers the national interest. 

When we needed straight talk, we chose a man who parses every word and speaks in riddles and talking points driven by daily polling. Obama is a man who reinvents the language and can’t call anything by its proper name. “War on terror” is now “overseas contingency operations,” “terrorist attacks” became “man caused disasters,” “war” is now defined as “kinetic military action,” and, of course, “illegal alien” is “undocumented immigrant.” He commits gaffe after gaffe when unable to use his teleprompter or textbook talking points from Alinsky and his leftists. When asked a simple question he often rambles on and on with incoherent, babble. 

They promised a man who would show the country, especially its young people, thrift and “hope” for the future. We elected a man who will pile an unimaginable additional debt on the nation and its youth by the end of his first term of nearly 5 trillion dollars. The same young people to whom he preaches conservation will find crushing obligations to enable Obama and his idealistic dictatorship. 

Welfare rolls skyrocketed over 40 percent and reached numbers never before witnessed in America. Obama changed the old middle class into the new welfare class. The more he implements his Marxist ideas the greater numbers he adds to permanent government dependency. 

We needed a President to surround himself with knowledgeable, ethical experts, and true American Patriots. We got Barack Obama, a wholly owned subsidiary of the radical left-wing of this country. His list of friends, acquaintances, cabinet members, czars, and White House staff reads like the Who’s Who of radical 60’s terrorists, and modern-day revolutionaries. Bombers, rioters, Communists, Marxists, Maoists, Socialists and myriads of other misfits, permeate, not only his inner circle, but unfortunately work tirelessly, pulling the strings of government and remaking the country into Obama’s perverted delusion of America. 

He appointed an Attorney General with a racial agenda, a Treasury Secretary that had problems paying his own taxes, and a Secretary of State who believes in One World Government and works with the United Nations to usurp constitutional rights of Americans. 

When we needed a man who had overcome the experiences and trials of life, we got a dysfunctional product of a nanny state government, obsessed with “fairness” and “Social Justice.” He believes in a system where the hammocks and featherbeds of big government softens failures and is always there to protect people from themselves and from life. Leftists never understand the need for failure in providing guidance in the pursuit of life’s goals and the building of character. Protected from real-life experiences like meeting payrolls, and disappointing failure, they never build quality leadership abilities. Neither can they develop the proper circuitry in their brains for critical thinking. 

Barack Obama is a cold, calculating, Marxist, consumed by bitterness. He spends every waking moment ranting about the unfairness of America and disparaging American exceptionalism. He is hitched to the rail of progressive group-thinking and incapable of offering unbridled leadership in a free republic. In all of his arrogance, he consistently compares himself to the strong, individualistic pioneer, Abraham Lincoln; while he’s more aptly an ideologically driven, more deadly version of Jimmy Carter. 

In Obama’s latest class warfare jab at Mitt Romney, he smirked that he wasn’t born with a “silver spoon” in his mouth. Obama has grown and thrived, however, with a “golden-government spoon” in his mouth and a feeding tube connected directly to taxpayers. 

He rails against the rich jet setters flying around the world, while he and his family’s intricate, massive spider webs of jet contrails fill the sky. He crisscrosses the country running his progressive-Marxist flag up the “elect Obama” pole trying to find the political winds to make it fly. He knows the winds increase as the welfare rolls swell. 

Disillusionment, turmoil, fear, and discontent are prevalent at times within any group of people or country. Politicians feed and thrive on these facts of life just as all predators feed on the fear of their prey. With Barack Obama in the White House, the federal government is a predator, and the American people are the prey. If Americans scatter, out of fear and helplessness, we will surely become victims and the nation that our founders gave us will fall. Freedom lovers in this country must unite and stand to fight this tyrant before he devours all of our liberty!
