2012 Republican National Convention: Cairo

Screw Tampa. Cairo is where it’s at. I read Politico’s article, GOP 2012-ers cold on Egypt strategy, and got a kick out of it. Only a select few of those who want to take on Obama in 2012 have been vocal about how we should proceed with Egypt. The others have not.

MITT ROMNEY
“I think what the United States has to do is make it very clear to the people of Egypt that we stand with the voices of democracy and freedom and we also have to communicate — I think as the administration has,” he said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Translation: I have no chance because of the Mormon thing, so here goes nothing. It’s all about Democracy, even if the Muslim guy in the White House thinks so, too.

NEWT GINGRICH
“I don’t think they have a clue. It’s very frightening to watch this administration,” he said on Fox News with Greta Van Susteren Tuesday night. “We should be very frightened of the Muslim Brotherhood. These may be people you can’t dialogue with.”
Translation: Obama bad. Me good. Gingrich 2012.

TIM PAWLENTY
“I think his time is going to come to an end,” Pawlenty told a scrum of reporters accompanying his book tour in Iowa. “It should come to an end. But as that vacuum gets filled, we want to do all we can to make sure it gets filled by institutions and people and leaders that share our principles, and values of freedom and democracy and human rights.”
Translation: See how diplomatic I am? I’m very presidential. Oh, and God bless America!

MIKE HUCKABEE
“I don’t think anybody is trying to defend everything that he did as president, but they would have liked to have seen at least an acknowledgment that he’s been a friend for all these years,” Huckabee said Tuesday morning on Fox News. “So the concern is that if the U.S. will so quickly turn on that friend, how quickly will it turn on its other friends? And that’s the sentiment shared by not only the Israelis, but by the members of the European parliament from several European countries with whom I spoke this morning.”
Translation: Zionists, please vote for me.

Even silence can speak volumes.

SARAH PALIN
“I’m not supposed to say anything until I read The Middle East for Dummies and can find Egypt on the map.”

BOBBY JINDAL
“I’m Indian. They’re Egyptian. I don’t know if Americans can tell the difference, so I’ll sit this one out.”

Republicans always put on a great show. Who knew we’d have a trailer so soon?

    Ridiculous. Just like President Obama had no chance because of the African-American, possibly Muslim thing. It’s absurd.

    Romney in 2012!!!!!!!

    Translation: Obama bad. Me good. Gingrich 2012.

    Gingrich is a pig; I can’t stand him.

    I don’t know why you’re mocking him, considering you’ve been saying the same jazz. How do you know he doesn’t believe it?

    Translation: Zionists, please vote for me.

    Funny. I said the same thing.

    I wouldn’t mind Huckabee in 2012!

    Watching the liberals bash Republicans is rather hilarious. That you would even recognize their presence shows how worried you are.

    President Obummer is inept; anyone of those listed, save Gingrich and Palin, could do a far better job.

    I am reminded of what Winston Churchill once said, “It’s always exhilarating to be shot at without result!”

      I was mocking everyone. That was the point. I hear that a lot – that liberals are worried because we bash them/recognize their presence. Have you ever thought that we’re amused by them (and vice versa)?

      • Terrance H.

        I know you were mocking everyone, which is a bit weird, considering some of them made comments you actually agree with! So, why then would they amuse you?

      • SpinnyLiberal

        I agreed with some, yes. The point was to “translate” what they’re saying to the voters in a light-hearted way. From my posts, I think people can tell that I’m pretty irreverent. 🙂 And I’ll be the first to admit, I get a huge kick out of gaffes from the other side.

  • Terrance H.

    You — irreverent? Noooooo….Never….

    I like to poke at ya, even though you often come back with a response that leaves me dumbfounded – quite literally. I guess I haven’t learned to choose my battles carefully…..Oops.

  • lbwoodgate

    I think you’ve read them all pretty good spinny.

    Hilarious. Pretty much on the money. Yes, republicans are quite entertaining.
