Readers React to Connecticut GOP Rally

A Connecticut rally aimed at strengthening unity in the Republican Party elicited responses from various political leanings.


Republicans in Connecticut prepared for the November elections with a “Rally for Republican Unity” at a home in Monroe on Saturday. Patch account holders offered their thoughts on the rally and upcoming elections.

Connecticut Republicans Rally to Turn State Red 

“Connecticut has already crossed the threshold to nanny state. It's no longer a blue state, it's a welfare state. It will be a real challenge to turn the state around. My God, we have our tax dollars paying for diapers!” –

“The simple fact is that, for Connecticut to be "in-play" on the Presidential level, the GOP is going to have to return to being a party of fiscal prudence and leave social issues aside. I don't see that happening for a very, very long time.” –

“State democrats raised taxes on everyone and the state is still in the red.” -

“I just watched that video and it's not something I'd get excited about. Sounds like maybe 50 people with others talking in the background. Not even considerate to their own party. Stop with the fear of socialism. It's getting old.” –

“Republicans, across the board, need a review of where they are. They need democratic meetings not just pep rallies. We have to ensure the right candidates are promoted and selected for office, that means a strong state party chair and strong local committees.” -

“PLEASE...PLEASE...PLEASE do something to get the people in this state to wake up! Dems got us in this mess and their solution is the usual...'Tax and Spend'...yet, the people don't get it!” -

"2016: Obama's America" is a must-see for those not wanting to be part of the "moron vote" in November. "2016: Obama's America" is showing this weekend in Bridgeport at the Showcase Cinemas, Rave and Bow Tie Criterion in New Haven, and at about a dozen other theaters around the state as found below: http://www.2016themovie.com/theaters/?state=CT "Mr. Obama is casting his net for the moron vote. I do not believe there are enough morons out there to re-elect him." Read more: TYRRELL: Obama's looking for the moron vote - Washington Times I agree with R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. that "there are [not] enough morons out there to re-elect him," because of what the poor Dem turnout for the recent CT Primary reveals about the great lack of enthusiasm now for their candidates, after their blatant failures with employment and the Economy. Also, Millions of Americans are 'waking up' and realizing their grave mistake in voting for Obama in 2008. This is affirmed by 1) Romney's huge fundraising success compared to Obama's desperation over his donations being way down. 2) The size of the crowds at their appearances, which are now embarrassingly SMALL for "the one" 3) People are apologizing for their votes for Obama to their better informed friends, and to luminaries such as Rush Limbaugh and Mayor Giuliani--both of which I heard on WABC just this afternoon.

"2016: Obama's America" is now the #1 box office movie in the U.S.! Don't miss it folks. It might be a "limited engagement," but is showing this weekend at the theaters found in this link: http://www.2016themovie.com/theaters/?state=CT We saw it last night--and the movie is riveting! I knew much of what is in it from reading Dinesh D'Souza's book "The Roots of Obama's Rage." In "2016: Obama's America" you will see not only Obama's unique background revealed, and his mentoring by communists and other radicals, but how he USED Americans' desire for fairness and to prove they were not racist, to hoodwink them into electing him to the most powerful office in the world. D'Souza also has a new book out: "Obama's America: Unmaking the American Dream." "America as we know it—wealthy, powerful, assertive—is not what Obama wants. "He wants a smaller America, a poorer America, an America unable to exert its will, an America happy to be one power among many, an America in decline so that other nations might rise—all in the name of global fairness. To Obama, the hated 'one percent' isn’t just wealthy Americans; it is America itself. In Obama’s view, America needs to be taken down a notch."... http://www.dineshdsouza.com/books/obamas-america/ Btw, Obama has been endorsed by the Communist Party USA.
