"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Senator Elect Marco Rubio's 'Exceptional America' versus Obama's 'Decline of US Dominance'

The contrast between Marco Rubio and Barack Obama is nothing short of astounding. While Marco Rubio talks about American Exceptionalism and how we have to protect it for our children and grandchildren, Obama is in India saying we are no longer a dominant country:

MUMBAI: Implicitly acknowledging the decline of American dominance, Barack Obama on Sunday said the US was no longer in a position to "meet the rest of the world economically on our terms". Speaking at a town hall meeting in Mumbai, he said, "I do think that one of the challenges that we are going face in the US, at a time when we are still recovering from the financial crisis is, how do we respond to some of the challenges of globalisation?" (Times of India)
Senator-Elect Rubio talks about American Exceptionalism and is ready to roll up his sleeves to get to work in the US Senate to help turn the Country around from failed policies of the last few years and the trek toward socialism that Obama and his progressive Democrats under Pelosi have been taking America. Obama continues to trash America on foreign soil. Has he made one visit where he has not trashed America? 

An absolute contrast which reminds of Ronald Reagaon with his positive outlook on America running against Jimmy Carter who was as negative as you could get about America.  Cannot feature being a pessimist and not looking at every day as new day that is going to get better. These Democrat apologists for America need to get a clue about what a great Country we have had the privilege of living, some of us by birth and others by choice. That remarkable statute which sits in the New York Harbor has welcomed so many coming to America who have come to find a better place to live.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Emma Lazarus, 1883
With all that is great about America that is pointed out by Marco Rubio, we have Democrats like Obama trashing America at every turn.  How can a person not be moved looking at the Statute of Liberty and realize that America is an Exceptional Country who has opened its doors to citizens from the around world who over the years have made America great.  Now we have a leader who doesn't understand much about America, our faith, our love of Country, our core values, or our hope for a better tomorrow so he trashes our beliefs and our Country on foreign soil not just in America.

Even with the huge defeat of Democrats in the House and Republicans taking six new Senate seats when Republicans had the most at stake in the Senate, a lot of the progressives like Pelosi don't understand Americans and the message we were sending. They think Americans are saying they didn't go far enough.  About went through the roof when that became the reason they think they lost the election -- they still are not listening to the American people.  Pelosi wants to be Minority Leader and try to ram more of her agenda through but it is not going to happen as this time any Blue Dogs who survived will vote against her and her agenda along with the Republicans.

Remember when President Bush on September 14, 2001, took the bullhorn at the site of 911 and said "I can hear you! I can hear you! The rest of the world hears you! And the people—and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!"

Maybe John Boehner needs a bullhorn on behalf of the American people to ask Pelosi and her Progressive stupporters in Congress -- "Do You Hear Us Now?" We have to wonder if Obama and the Progressives like Pelosi actually believe the defeat they just suffered in the mid-terms was because they lunged to the left or do they honestly think going farther left is the answer.  If so, they are delusional beyond anything we have seen.

We want to make perfectly clear we were not happy with the economic situation during the last six months of the Bush Administration or with the Republican Congress in 2005-2006 as they started spending tax dollars like there was no end. That said, they cannot hold a candle to what has happened since the Democrats took control of Congress in 2006 and overwhelmingly took control in 2008 when Obama became President. Spending and takeover of private enterprise has created a nightmare in the march of the Progressive Democrats toward socialism, but they are saying they haven't completed the takeover while the American people said very loudly on November 2nd -- NO MORE LIBERAL AGENDA!

We have never witnessed a President who goes overseas and trashes America like Obama. Frankly we wish that Congress would clip his wings so he had to stay in the White House and quit making a fool of him and this Country in foreign nations. Does the White House even have a travel budget?

We must admit are going to enjoy seeing Pelosi have to say good bye to her plane. Thought she was going to retire if she lost the Speaker's Gavel -- that didn't last long. Next she will want a plane as Minority Leader. Going to be great seeing her in the audience not in the Speaker's Chair during the State of the Union.

While Rubio thinks America is the greatest Country in the World with the most opportunities, Obama goes around criticizing what he perceives is wrong with America while he is on foreign soil. He has done everything possible to tank our economy and then continues to blame America.

We go back to the original premise that Obama no matter where he was born was not raised like the average American. His bending over backwards for Islam is a perfect example trying to rewrite history of this Country. Then we have him speaking to Hispanics telling them to vote against their enemy (Republicans) or how Republicans need to go to the back of the bus but now wants Republicans to work with him? Of course he does as long as they go along with what he wants.

Will the media report fairly on what is happening in Congress starting on January 3rd or will they continue to spin and cover for the Progressive Democrats. The jury is still out on that one.

Obama besides being lazy has no real experience of any kind and it shows more all the time. Add to his thin skin and it is a prescription for disaster. He has no idea of the greatness of America and doesn't seem like he wants to learn. Maybe after his one term, he will get it but we have our doubts.

We leave you with this THANK YOU from Marco Rubio with the task that lies ahead as he goes to the Senate on January 3rd as the voice of the people of Florida and frankly a lot of the rest of us who agree with his vision of 'American Exceptionlism' which we find refreshing!

We want to say Thank You to Senator-Elect Rubio for daring to dream big in his run for the United States Senate by spending countless hours to win this election and never giving up.  He is an example to every American on what you can accomplish through hard work and dedication to getting the job done.
