Hello, my fellow Americans. This is Patrick Flynn and I am LIVE from New Orleans at the Republican Leadership Conference!
I will be updating this in various pieces. It was a great trip to New Orleans this morning with Jeff and our new writer, Catfish Thomas. We got to the Hilton around noon and after a bit of a confusing setup, we find ourselves in the Grand Ballroom. Want to know what’s cool? My man, Mike Huckabee, will be speaking here shortly.
The place is fairly packed as of this writing, and the energy is high. Referring back to the debate, I find it impressive how unified the candidates are against Obama as opposed to attacking each other. Will it last? Probably not; but the image presented is one of a unified Republican party to defeat our failing President Barack Obama. However, Newt Gingrich gave words of wisdom at the debate; we have something bigger than just a Presidential Election. If we want to make a real difference and be able to accomplish what we have in mind, we have to capture another dozen Senate seats and thrice that in the House.
As I sit here in the back of this gorgeous ballroom at the media tables, the more minor speakers are coming through – and Huckabee is up! Stay tuned!
