Former Apollo 17 Astronaut: “how either ignorant or devious can our President be!?” And a simple question.
(Hat tip to TheRealRevo.)
Dr. H. Harrison Schmitt, former Apollo 17 astronaut and geologist, has asked, based upon Opuppet’s “response” to stop the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and subsequent decision to halt all off-shore oil exploration in U.S. waters, “how either ignorant or devious can our President be!?”
Dr. Schmitt goes on:
President Obama has shown repeatedly that the best interests of the American people are a lower priority than his ideological goal of changing America from what it has been, to some mystical, socialist utopia with a renewable-energy-based standard of living equivalent to that of the late 1800s. As if the Administration could not make its ineffective, disjointed response to the Deepwater Horizon accident any worse, it did not even use previously established sea surface burn-off and dispersant procedures to minimize the effects of the spill.
In addition, it has inexcusably delayed approving and assisting in Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s request to protect the state’s shores and wildlife habitats, by building offshore sand barriers – as unnecessary as having to make that request should have been. And this is the government that Congress and the President want to run healthcare, immigration, banking, carbon emissions, auto manufacturing, and everything else in American life?
So, what are YOU doing to CHANGE the clowns we have running our federal government? What are YOU going to DO to make sure we change out the Congressional overseers? In this election cycle and beyond? To get out the vote (“GOTV”)?
We MUST organize. Locally. To GOTV for candidates with common sense who will enforce the Constitution, not ignore it.
What are you DOING to accomplish this? Writing another blog article like the above about the travails of Opuppet’s administration doesn’t count. Your local GOP committee needs you at a meeting, not at the keyboard writing another blog entry. What actual “roll up the shirt sleeves and get into the ball game of party politics” actions are you going to take to help GOTV? What phone calls will you be making? What meetings will you be attending locally to obtain a walking sheet for your precinct to go door-to-door to identified Republican and independent voters to make sure they get to the polls armed with information about the good and bad candidates? The rest of us conservatives already INSIDE the Republican Party need more conservative bodies to join us.
Meet the real ball players in the game of politics. They’re the conservatives already attending your local GOP committee meetings. And they need YOU! (Oh, and you can’t cast a vote for the Party leaders unless you become a precinct committeeman. Sorry.)
152 days until Nov. 2.
ColdWarrior, PC (that’s “precinct committeeman,” not “political child!”)
Conservatives, UNITE! CHANGE the Republican Party and save the world by UNITING INSIDE the Party as precinct committeemen. NOW!
American first, conservative second, Republican precinct committeeman BY NECESSITY!
ThePrecinctProject, so you can say, “I became a precinct committeeman before it was cool.”
