On my little rant vlog last night I discussed the left's tactic of destroying and eliminating every effective Republican. Clearly a critical victory for the hate America crowd was eliminating Delay from the House Republican leadership. I can not, for the life of me, understand why the Republicans passed a law that said if any of the members of the House Republican leadership are ever indicted, they are to resign immediately. The Democrats would never agree to or enact such a rule. Think about it. All the Democrats have to do is get you indicted (in Delay's case with some hack Democrat prosecutor) and you must resign. Talk about giving the enemy the weapon in which to kill you.
I am reading Delay's new book No Retreat, No Surrender. Considering the stakes, I wish there had been more politics and less personal stuff but I gotta tell you I really like this guy. Always have. I backed him during the worst of the smear merchants' campaign here and here (and still more here) and the leftards went berserk on me . They can stand behind a crooked thief that hides 90g in his freezer, but I am impugned because I back up an honorable, decent guy. That's America!
One Jerusalem.Org put together a blogger interview an.d it was riveting
Delay: We are at a critical crossroads in the 2008 Presidential election.....It frightens me to think of it everyday.
When I heard Delay say that, I said he totally gets it. You must listen to this download of Delay. It is compelling. Download delay322-0001.mp3
I am going to have Delay on my radio show Atlas on the Air - date to be determined. But it sickens me that this man was removed from the fight.
Certain things he said stuck in my head;
He criticizes Israel for not cleaning out "that rats nest called Hezb'Allah."
It's critical ......The opposition is more powerful than I have ever witnessed in my lifetime -- in my career. They have put together then most powerful political coalition, more powerful, that I have ever seen --- well financed well coordinated . For the first time in my career coordinated with the media whether directly or indirectly.
Read that again
And this coalition is available to Hilary Clinton because it was basically put together by the Clintonistas........It's an awesome machine we have to defeat.
You gotta listen to Delay.
If we don't come together and come together note, I hope it's already not to late, Hillary Clinton is going to be the next President of the United States.
The whole thing is riveting. I expect his appearance on my radio show to be explosive. He ias organizing a number of real grass roots organizations
We desperately need a national communication strategy that is comprehensive can stand toe to toe to the opposition media. My participation in that is I started a new blog Tom Delay.com ..... We need more movies with our world view, we need documentaries with our world view, we need to bring the radio talk show hosts together, we need to be on the cutting ege of the blogosphere. There is so much we need to be doing that we are not doing.
I asked Delay how Evan Coyne Maloney gets publicity for his movie Indoctrinate U, click here.. He said he had just met with "this billionaire that started doing movies (Narnia and the Ray Charles story) Philip Anschutz and we'd have to put them together.." Evan are you listening?
[...] The conservatives need to unite.
More to come. But check out www.ccmajority.org and learn more about Delay's new effort to put together a Coalition for a Conservative Majority. Sign up.
The current fight over the firing of those 8 US Attorneys is very important. If the president looks weak he will have the worst two years of his life. We have a scandal that is not real. And, today the media is taking Schumer's lead. Reid made several accusations and has absolutely no proof. The president looked weak when he let Rumsfeld go. If Bush doesn't stand up to the democrats... Its over
This is the most emboldened democratic onslaught I have seen. It is different than the onslaught during Clinton years. Democrats "Win Without War" is a good example. Here you have abortionists and unionists and others working hard together against the war. They all are working together. The best we have is a Grover Norquist luncheon. When the Clintonistas left the White House, they started organizing. The democrats are organized. We Republicans have nothing like that.
I called him out on Norquist and said Norquist was the enemy.
UPDATE: Jim at Gateway has a great post on the interview here
UPDATE:TEL CHAI NATION: Participated in bloggers conference with Tom...
