God got the last laugh over Sarah and Abraham’s firstborn. Republicans will get the last laugh in Tampa.
Before the formation of the patriarchal tropical storm supposedly headed for bays near Tampa, the broadcast network television branch of the Democratic Party made Ann Romney the latest victim of their real war on women. Her speech, originally scheduled for the first night of the Republican National Convention there on Monday, would not be covered due to reduced network coverage of both major party conventions.
No problem. The wife of the man to be nominated to take on President Barack Obama on Election Day will speak tonight. ABC, NBC and CBS collectively laughed and discovered the next possible Katrina II and employed him, despite his Jewish name meaning “laughter”, as the latest device to divert attention from the empty spaces in voters’ wallets and any possible connection to the liberal economic policies of their fellow liberal Democrats.
The first Isaac-related line of defense against the appearance of modern Republican women bemoaning their non-free contraception suffering under Obama was the threat that Ishmael’s younger brother would hit Tampa Bay. When, “all of a sudden”, TS Isaac “changed” course and headed for the Crescent City (seriously, do political appointees populate those that issue press releases for NOAA?, but I digress), Plan B (sex-change) Isaac-as-Katrina kicked in.
The problem for the MSM: Then Governor Mitt Romney protected the Bay State from any 2005 Katrina-related casualties and damage; his name is not Bush and New Orleans is no wheres near Nantucket.
Meanwhile, Hurricane Obama (this conservative favors Rep. Maxine Waters’ demand for natural disasters with African names) continues to wreak havoc on men and women alike, that even a non-Bush and Brownie-led FEMA can’t fix. In the private quarters of the White House, the havoc being wrecked is called transformational Hope&Change aka Mission Accomplished. The problem is that the “natural” business cycle didn’t cooperate with the Stimulus, Obamacare and War on Coal to produce a favorable economy, stupid.
Hence, the warnings to America of Bain Capital, un-eaten dogs on car tops that live long lives, and Line 47 of unreleased tax returns. Anything to divert attention from what you haven’t been allowed to build for the last 45 months unless you contributed to Hope&Change 2008 or 2012 and named your LLC after Solyndra. Anything to divert your attention form the infamous Obama “You didn’t build that” speech lest you realize that not only didn’t this Democrat President not build that “America system…that allowed you to thrive”, but that his whole goal has been to tear down that private property and profit system that created the Shining City and its middle class.
Plan C to try and convince American voters that President Obama, Democrats, and their liberal policies are not responsible for the worst economic malaise since the 1930s is in the works, but no matter what gets talked about on the MSM or even Fox News (Rep. Akin included) will be able to crack the din of poverty and despair authored by President Obama and his super-majority Democrats. And if the DNC thinks Charlotte is safe from hurricanes, they never met Hugo (pictured).
