Home.... and Herman Cain

The Caffienated Conservatives are home... well, technically, we arrived home early this morning (we're talking like, first thirty minutes of the day), but we went to bed almost immediately, then it was up and to church in the morning.

Yesterday morning, we heard Herman Cain speak during the general session. For the majority of his time, he spoke on saving the savable in the Liberal movement. To close, he spoke of the bumblebee. By all scientific theories, the bumblebee should not be able to fly. you can input the measurements in a computer, and it will tell you that the bee cannot fly. It is an entirely un-aerodynamic, short, fat, fuzzy creature with ridiculously small wings. finally, he asked the delegation why the bumble bee can fly.

After a short pause, he said. "The bumblebee can fly, because it BELIEVES it can fly. I BELIEVE we will win in our fight. I BELIEVE we will fly." with tears forming in his eyes, he continued, "BELIEVE! BELIEVE that we will win! BELIEVE!" he raised his arms above his head, fists clenched. With a final cry of "BELIEVE!" Mr Cain strode off the stage, arms held high.

The auditorium erupted in cheers and applause, and a cry of "HERMAN CAIN FOR PRESIDENT!" came from the back of the room. after a full minute of full-throated accolade, the crowd quieted, inspired by Mr. Cain's words.

Thank you, Mr. Cain, for your work for our cause, and for inspiring the delegations attending the 2009 Americans for Prosperity Defending the American Dream Summit.

Watch it Now

C-Span recorded the General Session this morning and is replaying that recording right now.

Three Important Words

This a.m. Dallas Woodhouse, North Carolina Director for AFP spoke to the Summit, "You are the embodyment of three of the most important words ever put together in the English language, and no, North Carolina, it is not 'Start your engines.'" It is "We the People."

A Good One

Larry Kudlow says his mantra is "If you tax more, you get less. If you tax less, you get more."

Kudlow, after having dinner with them president-elect Obama in January of this year says, "He's charming, good sense of humor, an attractive young man (I'm 62, so I can say he's a young man.), but he did not know a bloody thing about the way our economy works."

One of Us

The spokeswoman for Patients United Now is a stay-at-home mother homeschooling five children.

A Challenge

John Fund, of the Wall Street Journal:

"I have good news.I am one of the few speakers standing between you and lunch."

"This bill won't take effect for four years. Why must it be voted on in the next seven weeks."

"Your parents, or maybe yourselves, beat back liberalism and Jimmy Carter in 1977. You and your predecessors beat back liberalism and Bill Clinton in 1993... I say we have won the first two rounds, let's win the third!.
