Stick Horses in the Gazette

Posted by jbharp on February 15, 2008

My Improv group is AMAZING!!! Of course we ourselves have known that for a while. But now we’re getting a chance to show the local area this fact. We’ve had a few visits from a reporter of Colorado Springs The Gazette. They have featured us in an article, a web video and the cover page for the weekend entertainment section!!!

Read the article here.

Last chance gone for conservatism

Posted by jbharp on February 7, 2008

The country’s choices have dwindled today with Mitt Romney suspending his campaign for the executive branch. Out of all the GOP contenders, I’ve grown to like Romney the most. I think he was the strongest candidate to implement and carry out ALL conservative values (social, economic, foreign affairs, ect).

His speech today at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) highlighted many of the major issues our country faces. And he addressed them with fervor and wisdom. This made it all the more disheartening to hear the end of his address when he announced the suspension of his campaign.

We are now faced to accept John McCain as the next best conservative voice for the White House. And he doesn’t have the best record at this role. His conservative rating was 65 for 2006 (here’s more details). McCain is the now the front runner and undoubtedly will get the GOP nod. Let’s face it – the Huck-a-boom has turned into a Huck-a-bomb (yeah, I thought of that term myself).

Romney’s address today shows his admirable character. He recognizes that America is at war and furthering his campaign would be harmful to the country in this critical issue. By suspending his run, it is clear that Romney truly is more concerned for his country than himself. This is what Huckabee should have done two weeks ago. If he had, then the conservative voice in America might still have a nominee in the race to proudly stand behind – Mitt Romney.

My favorite line today from Romney’s speech is this, “The best ally peace has ever known, and will ever know, is a strong America!”
