Not much to say in lead-up to my post…except HERE IS ADRIENNE’S EXCELLENT BLOG, where I saw the video (check it out at her place, just click on the red, please) and wrote this comment to her yesterday: (thanks again to Adrienne…)
It’s pretty clear lately that I’m a less popular blogger in the Conservative world because I have never made secret my distaste for the awful rhetoric of Trump, the name calling, the thin skinned-ness, the…well, enough said. I don’t trust his conservatism, there’s almost nothing I like about him BUT I believe his children are stellar and that says a lot to me about something in his fathering, in him. Also, I like what he says, most of the time, particularly about keeping Americans safe, bringing back jobs, etc. I LOVE THAT….
Having said that, I was nearly in tears listening to Mike Pence through such a long and in-depth interview. I, too, am a first and second generation proud American, whose family came here because they wanted to BE AMERICANS, as he so eloquently pointed out about his family. THIS is a big difference with many immigrants today; we’re not anti immigration, we’re for immigrants coming to participate in working WITH us, not living off of us. I like that, unlike others, he understands this and won’t be called anti-immigrant or racist because he can explain his stance so well.
I love Pence’s “We should have kept the OIL” (YES YES!) and “We are not a country if we have no borders!” YES!
As I HAVE ALWAYS ALWAYS SAID, I WILL VOTE FOR TRUMP… IN SPITE OF MY DISTASTE…but now I FEEL LIKE I CAN HAPPILY………..because if what I just heard from Pence.
Adrienne, I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for having posted the interview with Hannity because I hadn’t seen it and it made me feel SO MUCH BETTER. So much more hopeful.
Not only his stances, but his SOLIDITY…he KNOWS HIS STUFF and can RESPOND tough but ARTICULATE and CALM and POWERFUL. This is what I WISH Trump was…so I think this is a FABULOUS PICK.
I’m a happier girl right now! Okay, everybody, have at me about what I said about Trump; I’m used to it!! :=) (sorry this went on so long….) (end of Comment)
I only posted this here because I SO WANT YOU ALL TO TAKE THE HALF HOUR TO LISTEN TO PENCE…AND SEND IT TO OTHERS! SEND IT TO LIB FAMILY MEMBERS….GO VISIT ADRIENNE’S BLOG, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU DID.
Believe it or not, I have another ‘feel better about Trump’ story scheduled for Tuesday, too!
