We pray that Gustav downgrades, turns, disappears, does not hit American soil, does not cause any injuries or loss of life for Americans and does not cause any property damage. But it does look like Gustav will make landfall somewhere near New Orleans as Katrina did. In this case, we pray for everyone in the path of this storm. But ...
Gustav will be good news for Republicans, even if the convention is interrupted or even canceled. Americans will see that lessons were learned after Katrina. They will see Republican governors do a fantastic job of preparations, evacuations, and everything else involved with protecting the citizens of their states, whether it's Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, or Texas.
Remember the problems that occurred with Katrina in Louisiana and specifically New Orleans, were directly the fault of Mayor Ray Nagan and Governor Kathleen Blanco. Now we have Gov. Bobby Jindal in charge. We also have new leadership at Homeland Security and FIMA. I think Americans will be proud of the leadership during Gustav. I also think that the Democrats/Liberals will be put to shame for their glee at potential disaster on American soil for possible political gain on their parts.
Mandatory evacuations have been instigated ahead of Gustav.
President Bush has suspended plans to travel to the Republican National Convention and Sen. John McCain is considering plans for restructuring the convention entirely.
In Obamaland a CAT 4 hurricane is funny and they are praying it will hit and hit hard.
Check this out over at RedState. The news couldn’t be better! We may have a major disaster on the way! All we need now is a few thousand troops to get killed just before the election and Obama’s ascension will be a slam dunk.

Twin Cities Conservative is Live from St. Paul:
Wow, I'm starting to sound like a liberal: arrogant, condescending, smug, patronizing, elitist, etc. (in other words, true to its racist roots).
It's hard not to be a tad bitter when 1.) an anarchist group operating under the moniker, "RNC Welcoming Committee" was on the verge of causing a riot; 2.) certain community activists automatically assumed, when the local police stormed the group's secret location, WITH search warrant, that the group was harmless and police overstepped its bound.

PUMAS are for Sarah Palin, which means they are for John McCain. Pumas, in case you don't know, are "Party Unity My A$$", upset with the Dems because of their treatment of Hillary Clinton.
If you have any questions about Sarah Palin's experience, go here. John McCain's choice of Sarah Palin has destroyed Barack Obama's one day bump from the Democrats convention last week. The latest Zogby poll , a/k/a nationwide survey, which begun Friday afternoon after the McCain announcement of Palin as running mate and completed mid-afternoon today, shows McCain/Palin at 47%, compared to 45% support for Obama/Biden. In other words, the race is a dead heat.
The Zogby poll is not the only good news either. As Susan Duclos says, "No wonder the left is going into desperate panic attack mode!!":
The Rasmussen poll finds that 53% have a favorable opinion of Palin, compared to 43% for Delaware Senator Joseph Biden on the day he was chosen. This poll ... coming two days after the end of Obama mania, is huge. (American Interests) The Democrats are worried:
Senator Obama and his new style of politics have acted very "Old Style" during the first 36 hours since John McCain announced Sarah Palin as his VP choice. In fact they have been downright nasty.(continue reading)
Small town Palin scares the Socialists:
Proof that Palin is the right choice is becoming irrefutable: the left hates her.
My theory is that the more dismissive and vitriolic the response to these kinds of things, the more the responder is scared. Bill Kristol puts a nice spin on why the emergence of Gov. Palin has the Soros Sophisticates heading to the Meltdown Cafe. (continue reading)
Obama as an "elder statesman"? PULLEEEAASSSEE !!!
Palin's got another key asset: She's faced harsh criticism of inexperience previously, when she ran for governor in 2006. She not only emerged victorious, but she crushed two veterans of Alaskan politics in the process: in the primary she beat incumbent Governor Frank Murkowski, who had been a member of the U.S. Senate for 22 years, and she defeated former Democratic Governor Tony Knowles in the general election, who had served previously in the Alaska statehouse for eight years.

And the "sexist pigs" are out.
Adam Brickley was one of the forces behind Sarah Palin being chosen by McCain for V.P., and he received a phone call from Todd and Sarah Palin thanking him for being an integral part of Sarah Palin being chosen as McCain's VP. (more here) Politicians with manners and consideration, what a concept.
The media does not respect any right of privacy when it comes to Sarah Palin or her family, but they keep Edwards affair and illigitimate child a secret so he can continue running for President.
Recent comments on my 10 Reasons post about Sarah Palin are, how shall I put this, appalling. Some of these Moonbats just don’t seem to understand that most Americans live in polite society. I may go as far as to say most Americans would find the comments disgusting. (continue reading at Standing Guard Over Liberty)
The crowds love Palin. Smart Girl Politics, who got to meet Palin, says:
The theme of this 2008 election should be "The Maverick And The Baracuda vs The Whiner And The Bloviator".
On current events: Sen. Obama’s call for oil independence sounded strong in the speech. But the reality is it could just end up shifting America’s oil addiction from one supplier to another. (WSJ)
The Wall Street Journal is calling for Obama to come clean on Ayers, Rezko, and the Iraqi Billionaire
Bill Kristol and Danial Pipes both believe that President George W. Bush will 'do something' about Iran's nuclear program before he leaves office 'if Barack Obama is elected'. The resulting opinion is that if John McCain is elected, Bush will wait and let McCain take care of the situation. Now with Sarah Palin on the ticket, there is no question that McCain and Palin will stand strong together against Iran and for Israel.
Only more reasons to vote McCain - Palin.
