Not reinventing the conservative message. Just making it spicier.

Stephan Dinan of The Washington Times reported a post-debate surge in Bachmann’s poll numbers. As more Americans see and hear Bachmann, the more they gravitate to her:
Fresh off her well-received performance in last week’s GOP presidential debate, Rep. Michele Bachmann now tops the field of candidates in a new Zogby poll of Republican primary voters.
The poll found Mrs. Bachmann garnering 24 percent of the vote, well-ahead of businessman Herman Cain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who each received 15 percent support.
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., who officially announced his candidacy on Tuesday, scored just 2 percent support.

Conservatives, Libertarians, Republicans, independents, and blue dog Democrats are coming to a consensus: American voters must oust President Obama from office in 2012.
With countless attacks on the Constitution, an exorbitant debt, a blatant disregard for laws in place, a third war in Libya, appeasement to our enemies, fabricated class warfare, posing roadblocks to fixing the budget, and prompting a host of other problems, Barack Obama has proven to be one of the worst Presidents in our nation’s history..
It is obvious that President Barack Obama has had his eyes glued to a second term from the beginning, so his bid for reelection was expected. However, rather than “hope and change,” he has arguably brought us “doom and gloom.” With this in mind, many signs point to Obama’s possible defeat in 2012.
In the coming months Republicans will have a pool of candidates to select from, but they must select one who will successfully challenge and defeat Obama.
A profile of prospective Republican candidates is outlined below:
Rick Santorum: A former Pennsylvania congressman and senator, Rick Santorum would be a candidate who brings legislative experience to the table. A strong fiscal and social conservative, Santorum would garner favorability among stalwarts on the Right. He is known for his opinionated and equally controversial remarks. Yet, his lack of name recognition could weaken his chances.
Newt Gingrich: As a former Speaker of the House, Gingrich has the political acumen to lead. He co-authored the Contract with America in 1994 during the Republican Revolution, and helped usher in a balanced budget amendment to the 1999 federal budget. Nevertheless, his three marriages, collaboration with Nancy Pelosi to combat climate change, and embrace of the Republican establishment will make it difficult for him to secure the nomination.
Sarah Palin: Former Alaska governor and 2008 Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin is slated to run for President. Her whit, beauty, and intelligence have resonated with conservatives and Tea Party activists. If she decides to run, she will have an advantage with her name, her likeability, and her firebrand speeches. Unfortunately, Palin will be scrutinized for her celebrity status and will be subject to vicious attacks from the liberal media if she decides to run.
Tim Pawlenty: As a popular two-term Minnesota governor, Tim Pawlenty has the executive experience needed in a candidate. He is a fiscal and social conservative liked by many. Unlike many prospective candidates in the GOP field, Pawlenty is adept in his extensive use of social media—a skill that is needed in order to win the White House in 2012. Challenges include his anonymity among Americans and his perceived blandness.
Mitt Romney: Dubbed the GOP “frontrunner”, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is undoubtedly running for President. Romney is known for his economic prowess and for managing the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Although he has a colorful record, Romney will have difficulty garnering the nomination due to RomneyCare, his religious affiliation, and his tendency to flip-flop on critical issues.
Mike Huckabee: A popular favorite among conservatives, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is likely to run in 2012. Huckabee could easily succeed with appeal from social and fiscal conservatives. He is an ardent supporter of Israel, and maintains the Fox News Channel Show Huckabee each weekend. Nevertheless, he will be challenged on his record for giving clemency to criminals during his tenure as Governor.
Herman Cain: A popular radio talk show host and well-known businessman, Herman Cain is seen as a “wild card” candidate. Cain is a straight forward, yet equally polished orator. He is a popular speaker at events nationwide. He previously served in the Federal Reserve and ran for the Georgia U.S. Senate race in 2004.
Donald Trump: Real estate tycoon and Celebrity Apprentice star Donald Trump is expected to run in 2012. Lately, Trump openly challenged Obama over his birthplace. However President Obama discredited The Donald’s attack when Obama released his long form birth certificate in late April. In addition, there is substantial evidence to discredit his conservatism: exorbitant donations to Democrats, praise of universal healthcare, and his three marriages.
Ron Paul: Seasoned Texas Congressman Ron Paul is a perennial candidate known for his libertarian beliefs. His most notable positions include disbanding the Federal Reserve and ending American occupation abroad. Paul is also an important Tea Party favorite. His shortcomings rest in his age and his remarks on a non-interventionist foreign policy that have irritated some Republicans and conservatives.
Michele Bachmann: House Tea Party Caucus founder and lawyer Michele Bachmann has expressed interest in running in 2012. She has already traveled to many key states, including Iowa and New Hampshire, which hints a likely presidential run. Additionally, Bachmann is very conservative in her beliefs and has served as a foster parent.
Mitch Daniels: Hailing from the Hooiser state, Governor Mitch Daniels is considering a bid for the presidency. He is responsible for balancing Indiana’s budget and has been praised as a fiscal hawk. This trait will be attractive to Republicans, with the deficit being the most pressing issue today. Nevertheless, his “truce” on social issues will possibly turn off some social conservative voters.
Gary Johnson: Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson is slated to jump into the 2012 race. Like Ron Paul, Johnson has a pronounced libertarian streak. He is a proponent of marijuana decriminalization and school voucher programs. During his tenure as governor, Johnson slashed the size of New Mexico’s government and produced a budget surplus estimated at $1 billion dollars.

Christina Hoff Summers stresses the need for strong men with the following quote:
“We are turning against boys and forgetting a simple truth: that the energy, competitiveness, and corporal daring of normal, decent males is responsible for much of what is right in the world.”
Feminists want to abolish patriarchy in exchange for total female domination as retribution for “many years of oppression.” Additionally, culture has capitalized on wimpy boobs and oversexed males to sell products while undermining fathers, husbands, and providers. Although this problem is deeply rooted in many factors, the latest perpetrator against the male sex is one of its own, albeit inept, members: Levi Johnston.
Levi Johnston recently unveiled the cover of his book, Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs, slated for release on September 27th, 2011. This tell-all tripe details how the opportunist was “exploited” by the Palin family.
Amazon provides a description of the book below:
Levi Johnston sets out to clear his name, shed light on the Palins, and take us all up to Wasilla to see what it is like to grow up in Alaska.
The cover epitomizes the danger with effeminacy in males today. Men have become weak, incompetent beings that beckon no respect from society. For one thing, Johnston looks like a goose-stepping fool caught in a criminal act. It evidences that boys are willing to degrade themselves for attention in lieu of upholding manliness.
What man would jeopardize their virility in exchange for joining the new castrati males club?
21-year-old Levi Johnston is no stranger to glitz and media attention. The narcissist impregnated Bristol Palin, later became a father to their child Tripp, and left her to raise the boy alone. After his failed relationship with Bristol Palin, Johnston went on an anti-Palin bashing spree, hung out with crass comedian Kathy Griffin, and shamelessly posed nude for PlayGirl magazine. Now, he is living off of his notorious “achievements”. Not exactly the venerable route for an American male.
The question beckons: where are Mr. Johnston’s parents?
Young adult males need the guidance of their parents in order to avoid becoming leeches like Levi Johnston. A father teaches his son how to fend for himself, how to be a man, how to respect others, and how to avoid falling prey to effeminacy. Additionally, a strong maternal influence on a young adult male will ensure his respect for women, his observance of chivalry, and his self-respect. Sadly, Mr. Johnston’s parents are failures because they raised an incompetent, low-life jerk who spreads the seed, breaks girls’ hearts, and reluctantly adds more to his 15 minutes of fame.
Doug Giles wrote the following about the problem with emasculate men in a 2004 column:
Parent, if you have a young son and you want him to grow up to be a man, then you need to keep him away from pop culture, public school and a lot of Nancy Boy churches. If metrosexual pop culture, feminized public schools and the effeminate branches of evanjellycalism lay their sissy hands on him, you can kiss his masculinity good-bye—because they will morph him into a dandy.
It should come as no surprise if Levi Johnston ends up on Celebrity Rehab or in jail.
Nevertheless, there is hope for Generation Y with several guys that are moving America in the right direction. HUMAN EVENTS editor and Obama Zombies author Jason Mattera is on the forefront combating liberals by speaking on college campuses and at media outlets nationwide. Similarly, ACORN nutcracker and journalist James O’Keefe is exposing liars and cheats, and has arguably done more to save the American taxpayer money than our elected officials. While Mattera and O’Keefe are the most recognizable examples, there are plenty of young men in the Conservative Movement that are working tirelessly to save America instead of twiddling their thumbs, drawing unwanted attention to themselves, and destroying their manhood.
Our nation cannot afford to have guys like Mr. Johnston making important decisions. He is an example of what the Obama Administration wants in young adult males: feckless wimps unable to function properly. In order to prevent more Levi Johnston’s from emerging, parents need to raise their boys right, teach them practical skills, and be pivotal figures in their lives.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin gave a great, resounding speech in Wisconsin on April 16th, 2011, with Americans for Prosperity. This nicely coincided with TEA Party “Tax Day” celebrations all over the country.
Watch this epic speech below:
