Dems’ worst nightmare gets off to great start

Via Hot Air, the pride of Florida demonstrates why Clinton and the Dems put so much pressure on Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race. As with Florida Congressional District 22’s Allen West, Rubio instills fear in the hearts of progressive, identity politics  players everywhere, laying to rest the misguided notion that all minorities are enthralled by the nanny state.

Making Rubio even more formidable is his own compelling life story as the son of Cuban exiles who fled tyranny and embraced freedom in the United States of America. And they didn’t ask for handouts — as Rubio explains, their dream became a better life for their children, and they weren’t above working hard as a bartender and a maid to ensure that outcome. Thus, a child of immigrants attains the office of United States Senator, all the while espousing and upholding the commonsense, conservative principles that made it all possible, thanks to our Founding Fathers and a watershed document known as the United States Constitution.

I am so proud to call Marco Rubio my United States Senator and Lt.Col. Allen West my congressman!

Pam Bondi top vote-getter in Florida

Pam Bondi, Florida's new AG-Elect.

Seems the Sunshine State has a formidable conservative female force of its own in Palin-endorsed Pam Bondi, who not only won her AG race handily, but garnered the most votes of all Florida candidates. The Conservative Divas and other South Florida patriots caught up with Pam on election eve at the Boca Raton Airport, just before she left to return to Tampa.

Congratulations to a real superstar with a proven record of accomplishment as a prosecutor and legal analyst. With Bondi as AG, Florida’s fight against Obamacare will continue.  Keep up the great work, Pam!

Scenes from the Allen West Victory Party

Lt. Col. (RET) Allen West poses with my brother Ralph after an event in Deerfield Beach, Florida in August, 2009.

Aside from the euphoria of a decisive Allen West victory over progressive, incumbent mud-slinger Ron Klein, I had the pleasure of bumping into Robert Stacy McCain, one of my favorite bloggers last night. Saw the fedora racing from the ballroom area to the lobby of the Boca Marriott and just had to follow. Strangely, the first thing he asked after I offered him and his blog glowing, sincere praise was, “Can you buy me a beer?”

Unfortunately for RS McCain, I’d quickly changed purses after a long day of poll watching and had left my cash behind. He did eventually end up with a beer, so all is well (not sure who bought). And it was pretty cool to meet him. Not as cool as an Allen West victory, but memorable nonetheless. 😉

So thrilled that Florida Congressional District 22  “de-Kleined” in favor of a constitutionally conservative war hero after an acrimonious, repugnant campaign in which the incumbent Democrat with the 98% pro-Pelosi/Obama record threw as many false accusations and character assassinations he could at a decorated war hero. Apparently, the hundreds of “racist rednecks” in attendance last night agreed with me as they cheered on their new congressional representative and showered him with hugs, kisses and high praise. It’s an honor to call West my representative, and I can only imagine how poor, pitiful Obama felt listening to his inspirational, unapologetically American victory speech, if indeed, he did.

Be afraid, Barry. Be very afraid.

Anyway, here’s some raw footage of one of the most uplifting, high-energy events in recent memory.

More videos coming soon.

Update: I should have clarified (though this post was written in good humor) that McCain was having trouble with the hotel’s ATM, which wouldn’t read his card. Problem was eventually resolved. And yeah, it was an awesome night all the way around, even though Ron Klein refused to show any class by calling Allen to congratulate him. Sore loser.

Update 2: Found this on YouTube:

Rally for Allen West and All FL Conservative Republican Candidates

Lt. Col. (RET) Allen West poses with my brother Ralph after an event in Deerfield Beach, Florida in August, 2009.

Spent a good portion of yesterday and today rallying with other like-minded patriots in Boca Raton, at the corner of Glades and  St. Andrews, by the Town Center Mall. It’s always comforting, reassuring and uplifting to spend time  among grassroots Americans who love their God, country and constitution, even more so now that we’re less than 48 hours away from the most consequential midterm elections in modern history.

We got many approving honks and thumbs-up from passing  cars, though we were also subjected to the occasional angry liberal flipping the bird and shouting obscenities and epithets,  not just at us, but — quite shamefully — a true American war hero. Voting for Lt. Col. Allen  West was a great honor for me; I’ve met him on many occasions and have nothing but respect and admiration for his character, his distinguished Army career and his many accomplishments.

That know-nothing Obama zombies of all ages would spew such drive-by venom and vitriol toward West is hardly surprising, though no less outrageous. After all, his incumbent Democrat  opponent Ron Klein has based his entire re-election bid on mudslinging and character assassination.  As previously noted, when you have a 98% pro-Obama/Pelosi voting record, the last thing you want to do is run on your record of support for odious and unpopular legislation like Obamacare, Cap and Trade and stimulus.

Readers of my blog may be surprised to know I am also a “fu^%$ing redneck”. Well at least that’s what some guy who looked to be around my age yelled out to me from his Range Rover as he sped by. I’ll take it as a compliment — the redneck part, anyway. After all, if loving my freedom, country, national security and creator make me a redneck, I am guilty as charged.

Here’s the first video from yesterday’s gathering; I will upload the second one soon.

Go West, Rubio, Bondi, Scott/Carroll, Putnam and all great Florida conservative Republican candidates!

Update: Here’s a video from Sunday’s rally. Not sure why I am swaying from side to side during my interview, but it’s probably because  the wooden sign I am holding was very heavy!

Jennifer Carroll: Our Girl for Florida

Great new video from our friend Tom Trento of the Florida Security Council.

I was very proud to cast my vote on Monday for Rick Scott and Jennifer Carroll, along with Marco Rubio, Lt. Col. Allen West, Pam Bondi, George Moraitis and Ellyn Bogdanoff. Early voting runs until October 31; for information on early voting locations, click here.

Coming Soon: The Conservative Divas on voter turnout and precinct walking in the final weeks leading up to November 2.

Update: Just checked the Palm Beach County Elections site, and voter turnout for Monday and Tuesday of  this week totals 8, 276. Of the eight early voting locations, Hagen Ranch Library in West Delray has the highest voter turnout thus far at 1, 643. West Boca Branch Library comes in second with 1,305, followed by Lantana Library at 935.

Not sure what to make of the numbers since West Boca and West Delray are heavily Democratic areas. Considering that they also have a significant senior population, I’m hoping it’s a sign that they’ve realized Obamacare is quite literally a threat to their lives and limited incomes, thus inciting massive turnout to cross party lines and vote out incumbents who supported this onerous bill. Unfortunately, many are also  hopelessly enthralled with what they perceive as the honorable legacy of FDR — like the woman I blogged about the other day — so it’s hard to tell.

Update: C-SPAN coverage of tonight’s Rick Scott – Alex Sink debate.

Update: At last, my video has uploaded to YouTube!
