Video: Susana Martinez lays claim to GOP future

posted at 10:41 am on August 30, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

I wrote earlier about the Twitter reaction from the media after Condoleezza Rice’s powerful, moving speech, speculating on her future as a Republican candidate for President or VP.  The conventional wisdom holds that a person who engages in a prime-time effort at a national convention (and especially one who delivers as Rice did) has a burning desire to use the speech as a springboard for a future election.  That was certainly true for Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, but Rice could have had the #2 slot this time, I suspect, if she truly desired it.  She could have run for President this time too, or for the Senate in California against Diane Feinstein.  Rice has never shown any desire for electoral office; I’d bet she might aspire to a place in the Romney administration, but even that might not appeal to Rice a second time around.

The evening did feature a woman who laid claim to the GOP future, though she didn’t get the same speculation as did Rice.  New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, the nation’s first female Hispanic governor,  introduced herself to American voters across the nation last night in an emotional, humorous, and powerful speech.  The most affecting portion came when she told the story of how she came to realize that she was a Republican:

I fear some of our leaders today have lost the courage to stand up.  What we have now are politicians.  They won’t offer real plans, and only stand up when they want to blame someone else.

And I don’t say that just because a Democrat is in the White House, I was a Democrat for many years, so were my parents.

Before I ran for district attorney, two Republicans invited my husband and me to lunch, and I knew a party switch was exactly what they wanted.  So, I told Chuck, “We’ll be polite, enjoy a free lunch, and then say good-bye.”  But we talked about issues — they never used the words Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal.  We talked about many issues, like welfare, is it the way of life or hand up? Talked about size of government, how much should it tax families and small businesses?  And when we left that lunch, we got in the car and I looked over at Chuck and said,  “I’ll be damned. We’re Republicans.”

Martinez’ story plays into one of the compelling themes of the convention, which asks voters to reconsider their partisan affiliation.  That won’t work with the Chris Matthewses of the world, obviously, but they aren’t the audience.  I mean that literally; on the NBC News website, the page that lists the Wednesday night speeches at the convention doesn’t have Martinez mentioned at all.  Martinez spoke to those whose Democratic leanings are more habit than purposeful, who have found themselves dissatisfied by Hope and Change, and whose core values come much closer to the individual empowerment and economic freedom of the GOP.

Her message of Todo es posible will resonate with these voters.  It’s also a good description of Martinez’ future in the GOP.

More seriously, when do we get the point where Martinez is simply introduced as Governor of New Mexico and not as “the nation’s first female Hispanic governor.” In short when do we dispense with such labels?

Happy Nomad on August 30, 2012 at 11:05 AM

Labeling will continue with both parties as long as they perceive it offers an advantage in votes. The unfortunate upshot of that is eventually we end up with many politicians elected because of gender and ethnicity instead of capability and integrity.

And when we left that lunch, we got in the car and I looked over at Chuck and said, “I’ll be damned. We’re Republicans.”

Why does she declare she’ll “be damned”? Weird, crude and just wrong declaration by Martinez. Gave me the creeps to hear it.

Lourdes on August 30, 2012 at 10:52 AM

Actually, it’s exactly the way a former Democrat would respond, if you think about it. That’s certainly what her former Democratic colleagues would be doing(damning).

JimK on August 30, 2012 at 11:21 AM

She sounded far more Leftwing than she did “Republican” as per your insight there, you’re right.

But I don’t think (what you suggest there) was her perspective, I just think she let out her Leftwing speech/state of mind there.

Poor woman is so naive and lacking of self awareness that she is incapable of detecting the boiling racial and ethnic animus and code words being bandied about.

Let’s hear Chris Matthews articulate the subtext and coded language meme he and the left continue to defame both minorities and the GOP.

Another thing: we don’t need “immigration reform.”

Something Martinez tried condemning Obama for not doing, implying she/”we” the GOP should do or would do.

WHY does that demand ALWAYS come up from within the context of “being Hispanic”?

They’ve got ethnicity. Big deal, everyone has ethnicity. But not one ethnicity merits violating our laws and being rewarded for it, unlike this whole “we need immigration reform” mantra. We don’t need “it” — we need better law enforcement and cultural education within people who assume they’re entitled to bypass our laws.

Well, that’d be better than what she did say.

She could have said a myriad of decent and uplifting, encouraging things, like “this is wonderful, we’re Republicans” or “wow, you know what, we’re Republicans” or any number of far more decent things than what she did say.

Referring to onesself and mate as being “damned” in regards to the moment you become Republicans is just utterly bad speech.

Maybe she IS damned, who knows, but her speech within the context and from the context that she made it, it was just wrong, stupid, careless speech.

I don’t like her after hearing that. It’s like opening a plane’s forward cabin door and finding a pilot sleeping on the floor or having a drunken jag.

I’m not sure why you use the word “creepy”. She told her story with humor and honesty in a way people appreciate and respect it. It was extremely effective in that she probably gave some diehard liberals “permission” to cross the line as she did. That was not only effective, it was brilliant.

Yes, the head poof, that hair bump she plumps on top her head, somewhat unreasonably. It’s weird, not like you see many people walking around with that head-poof thing except among Puerto Ricans in New York and a few ladies in New Jersey.

Certainly not “envious” of her hair poof, wouldn’t wear such a thing, anywhere.

Don’t be so quick to follow the irrational claims of psychos.

Steebo77 is projecting his/her own poor state of mind. If he/she wasn’t, they’d never presume to declare what other people (me, in this case) “feel” and “think.”

Steebo77 is a cad, male or female, obsessed with a politician and assumes strangers have qualities that almost certainly Steebo77 has (otherwise, why her/his projection about things they can’t know about others).

Steebo77 is a psycho. I don’t often think about “Sarah Palin” and when I do, there’s nothing even approaching “hate” about her or any other female or male on the “Conservative” side of things.

Steebo77 just needs to assert the name and the lies and do what psychos do and that is act out.

I have no “feelings” about Martinez except what I heard her say last night and about which I have already, abundantly expressed one salient point.

And I don’t say that just because a Democrat is in the White House, I was a Democrat for many years, so were my parents.

Before I ran for district attorney, two Republicans invited my husband and me to lunch, and I knew a party switch was exactly what they wanted. So, I told Chuck

Then apologize for doing so and try to forgive yourself afterward. Until you do, you’re slinking around in your lies and bad character. Writing links to youtube videos week in and week out on comments here won’t change your situation, and that is, you’re a liar, and destructive.

Lourdes, discovering you are a Republican after being a lifelong democrat evokes the phrase “I’ll be damned”.

Which is absurd, since the work in question was both witnessed by others when it was done by me and it’s very well known by those for whom I did the work that I did the work.

You’re jealous and petty and making statements in public about my work and me to wrongly state that my work isn’t mine.

Meanwhile, you’re not involved in my work, have never been involved in my work, and otherwise don’t know what the heck you’re even talking about when you opine about my work. Except that you seem to have some compulsion to lie about me on the internet, for whatever your petty, unhappy condition may be cause.

We can talk all we want about how good she was … and she was very good.

Low-information voters don’t watch CSPAN, PBS, and Fox News. Only these stations carried her speech (when I checked).

NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC all carried commercials and/or their talking-heads as they “previewed” the Ryan speech. MSNBC set up their viewers for the lies they were about to hear.

They are likely not to carry Clint Eastwood tonight. Only a few will cover the waning moments of Rubio’s speech if he is still talking at 10:10PM. Otherwise they’ll only preview Romney’s speech with the meme that it will be a complete failure if he comes off as an unenthusiastic speaker.

No matter what the outcome of Romney’s actual speech, they will inform their viewers that it, and he, were/was boring, vague, and packed with more lies.

I really enjoyed her speech, certainly more that I enjoyed half of the others and I personally howled when she said “I’ll be damned. We’re Republicans.”

Her point was that as many people do she had always been told she was a democrat and never questioned it but once she really started voicing her beliefs she discovered she was a Republican! LOVED IT.

I have a granddaughter that calls herself a Republican and I always smile about it. She does this because our entire family is Republican and she just assumes she is one of us. The rest of us all know that inside she is a Liberal!

Anyway, she told him no but he was about to get a view of her concealed handgun. Gotta love a woman who is packing!
