Laura Ingraham speaks at the RNC

21 Jul

Laura Ingraham was a speech-writer for Ronald Reagan.  Apparently, she’s lost none of that skill.  More, she can’t only write great speeches, she can deliver them as well.  The ability to write and deliver a great speech doesn’t necessarily make her a great person. But she can inspire and she speaks like someone who could be a great leader.

She delivered a speech at the Republican National Convention that makes me wonder if I didn’t just catch a glimpse of America’s first female Vice President or President.  

Too bad Trump didn’t recruit her to be his Vice Presidential nominee.

    Typical political diatribe by a talented lady.

    She, like so many other so-called Christians, advocates NO “respect” for a woman’s private right to life, liberty and choices which are hers, and hers alone, on a very basic natural level, between herself and her God. Today the priorities have become upside down. Which comes first, the mother or the fetus?

    Why is it that this subject of “abortion” has been made a public spectacle—–(even though it is primarily used by black women and girls)——promoted and pushed upon every man, woman and child in this nation? 2/3’s of the people have no business deciding what a woman can do with her own body, just as they have no business deciding if a man should obtain permission to use a condom or not.

    I also find it disconcerting to know that this so-called Christian/Catholic lady, who supposedly stands fully behind a man-woman marriage principle, remains single, yet has adopted three children without a father provided in her home. What does this import to the men in America?

      “. . . private right to life . . .”
      Are you one of those HildaBeast “vagina voters”?
      Hmmmm . . . wondering who would have written said comment if said commentor’s “mother” had exercised said “right”? Fairly confident you would not have been too squimish about those predators so surgically dissecting the parts of the fetus that became YOU while still inside your “mothers” womb. Would like to be there in your last moments to query you about the “ownership” of “your” body. I will agree though, that even in this “soft tyranny”, you still have the “right” to “operate” as chattel property “man (lowercase ‘m’) OR or other animal” in the ubiquitous equity courts. Don’t know the circumstance[s] of Ms. Ingraham’s “private” family life. Perhaps you should research it BEFORE making it an issue.

    “More, she can’t only write great speeches, she can deliver them as well.”

    Yea…sometimes when writers include sentences such as the above, my comprehension is strained. Al, it’s my way to forgive your misprints, partly because you tend to forgive mine. I’m using your sentence, though, to say that Laura Ingraham’s writing sometimes confuses me a bit.

    She’s a successful entertainer, but her attempts at Constitutional conclusions baffle me at times. Maybe she’s a testament to the fact that “law” schools don’t always aid one toward education in Law.

    However, I’m willing to consider the possibility that my comprehension is the issue.

      As I already wrote, being a good speech-writer and a good speaker doesn’t mean you’re a good person. Some of her speech was B.S.–like the crap about the cops risking their lives every day. According to some sources there are at least ten other occupations that are more dangerous than being a cop.

      But some of her speech also almost brought tears to her eyes. If there’s B.S. in her speech, it’s only about 5%. I regard the rest as pretty-much sincere. I don’t imagine that she reached whatever level of success she enjoys by being miss congeniality.

      Still, her speech was strong, inspiring, and–so far as I could tell–teleprompter free. Political careers can be based on such speeches.

      However imperfect Ms. Ingraham may be, as compared to 98% of the rest of America’s politicians, she looks pretty good to me.

      Anyone who’s looking for someone who’s perfect should stick to religion. If you’re going to dabble in politics (if only to comment) you have start by conceding that politics routinely attracts or creates people who are less than perfect and more concerned with their political survival than with right and wrong.

      As potential politicians go, Ms. Ingraham strikes me as a good one.

        Al, have you read the book she wrote about Obama’s diary?

    Yes, what a rousing speech – for such a venue.

    A lady on fire. Terrific.

    Reference: See Wikipedia and a dozen others.

    Is it not wise to gain a sense of equilibrium and further consideration of the source, especially about someone loudly involved in politics in Washington D.C.? For instance, Laura once stood extremely against homosexuality, but then did a turn-around when she discovered her brother and his partner both had AIDS yet maintained an impressive relationship.

    I’d vote Laura for president, over both Trump and Clinton.

    @Moon, No–I haven’t read anything Ingraham has written. I don’t recall even seeing her on TV prior to the RNC. My comments were strictly based on her one RNC speech.

      It’s certainly easy to overlook her blondeness.
