FORWARD! 4 July 2012, Wolfeboro, New Hampshire

Dedicated to all the tough-minded, purposive, workaday conservatives who, like me, have had it with the "nattering nabobs of negativism"* among the self-appointed conservative elites in Washington, DC, and Manhattan, New York.

*Memorable phrase written by William Safire for Spiro T. Agnew: "In the United States today, we have more than our share of nattering nabobs of negativism. They have formed their own 4-H club – the hopeless, hysterical hypochondriacs of history."

Thank you, Areté! I have seen SO MANY negative nellies. I'm tired of it.

A very pretty picture, and a nifty play on Bama’s coded catchword. The prez and his apparatchiki had to look backward to steal “Forward” from the Soviet-era Marxists (Вперед к коммунизму = “Forward to Communism”). You “rightly” turn the word around: Forward to a Romney Presidency! Иди, Mitt!

Agnew's "nattering nabobs of negativism" was a jab at the liberal news media who were constantly criticizing & attacking the Nixon Administration.

A very memorable line indeed, but not quite as memorable as Clarence Thomas's "high-tech lynching" during Senate confirmation hearings for his nomination to the Supreme Court, or former Labor Secretary Ray Donovan's "Where do I go to get my reputation back?" after being acquitted of larceny & fraud charges in a Bronx County, New York courtroom.

It sure wouldn't hurt Romney's election chances if he too took an occasional well-worded, well-timed jab at the widely despised liberal news media.

Newark hawk at 1:49am: It's hard to tell Romney where to begin with the "media." These quasi-political celebrities, Right and Left, are all in "make up" together, prepping for their coveted appearances on sound-bite-driven shows that most American voters never watch. From the beginning of his 2012 run for the Presidency till today, Romney has been targeted for criticism in almost equal measure by the liberal news media (you are very right there) AND by the righteous, ever-offended, conservative intelligentsia (or what passes for it on Fox, the Weekly Standard, the Wall Street Journal, etc.). A pox on both their houses, I say. If as I hope and believe Romney is elected President in November, the criticisms against him by both Left and Right will continue unabated. We better get used to it.
