The GOP and the Storm: Can the Establishment Get This Right?

The GOP has cancelled the scheduled Monday opening of its national convention in Tampa, Florida. As it turns out, Tampa seems to be in the clear. Looking at the projected Isaac storm track, it now appears the storm will be close to making landfall in the New Orleans to Gulfport area about prime time Tuesday night. All emergency services are really to give necessary help as soon as necessary. Last time there was a storm in this area, there were lots broken trees, so I needed to look for tree service near me to cope with storm damage.

What now? If the GOP goes ahead, the Democrats and the malignant media will blister them to try to make them look uncaring. It seems the GOP must go ahead Tuesday or possibly lose the whole convention. There is just too much at stake to risk damaging the chances of removing from office the worst president in American history. Our prayers must be not just for the people in the path of Isaac but for returning the country to governance that respects the Constitution.

One thing the GOP could do to thwart the criticism is turn part of the first day into a telethon of sorts to raise money for storm victims, assuming the storm actually does some damage. Silly idea? What if Isaac turns out to do a lot of damage? The press is already playing Isaac as the second coming of Katrina. They are loving every minute of this and anything that interrupts the GOP message because their guy has nothing.

What do you think the GOP Establishment will do? This calls for tactical thinking. What are the chances?

You can bet the Democrats will charge ahead with their convention, less than a week after Isaac’s landfall. And there will be crickets about their insensitivity.

The GOP convention must go on. RNC Chair Reince Priebus said so on the 23rd. He should stick with that.

They need to acknowledge the storm in some big speeches, pointing out that our entire country is suffering from a storm centred at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. It would be irresponsible to delay the RNC for a storm that will do its damage in a few days and lose the focus on a storm that has been doing damage since 2006, when the Democrats took over both houses of Congress and set the Federal Government debt rocket on overdrive.

I agree with the Generallist in that we proceed on schedule, give some proper acknowledgements to the storm……

….. and the first fricking peep out of the media where they hold up the Repubs for being “insensitive”, then we put out a million dollar ad campaign in all 50 states showing this video right here from Caleb Howe:

And I think we should tell them today, them being the commie media and the DNC, “I dare you”.

I taught Sunday school for many years and always taught my students that we can’t always see God’s master plan, it is many times a puzzle that comes together later. God recognizes this country is in crisis and needs help. I truly believe that and possibly some how these events are part of His master plan to save us. I think that is why I am not freaking out about this, we have to trust He knows what He is doing.

What Generalist said. Remind folks that there isn’t a Democrat leader within 500 miles of this storm this time–TX-LA-AL-MI-FL, and if Obama will let the GOP leaders run the show without trying to hog the glory they will no doubt earn (he really did well on the BP oil spill on that account) then all will be fine.

Even my dog Spot can see the trap they’re trying to lay.
