Thanks for Your Support
July 27, 2010
Ever since I asked for “a show of hands” a few weeks ago when I wasn’t sure how many people were reading BobGrantOnline.com, I am buoyed by the response showing there are many more of you than I had hoped.
I will try to live up to your words of praise and your loyalty and am very appreciative of your support.
Although I appreciate you “old timers,” I wonder if there are any of you out there who are reading me for the first time.
One of the reasons the management of my radio station did not see fit to put me on the air more than just this once a week Sunday program, is they feel I attract only an “old” audience. I know that is not true because throughout my career on the air I have attracted a cross section of listeners.
Why am I being so open about this? First of all, I have always been open with my audience.
Secondly, I do wish I could get an e-mail from people that does not begin this way, “Bob, I want to tell you that ever since my grandpa told me about you and ever since I started listening to you in 1970, I have been a big fan of your show. You have shaped my political thinking and inspired my love of history and this country!”
Please do not misunderstand me, I love letters like that. But, every time the listener writes to the management of the station and says that, it only confirms in their mind that I have an old audience.
Please forgive me if I have offended any of you. That surely is not my intent. My intent is only to communicate with you because I love you folks who read BobGrantOnline.com, and who listen to the Bob Grant program every Sunday at 12 noon.
Now that I got that off my chest, I don’t have to remind you that we must get rid of this Democrat Congress in this fall’s election.’
Most Republicans mean well and share our solid conservative values, but the Republicans are not the skillful campaigners the Democrats are.
For example, the Dems know you folks are sick and tired of that failure of a so-called president, Barack Obama. They are also aware of the fact that the Democrat House of Representatives, headed by Nancy Pelosi, is a big spending, high taxing group.
They also have no respect for the leader of the Democrat Senate, Harry Reid. But if you read their public statements and listen to what they say in their interviews, you can’t help but notice how many of them are trying to sound like Republicans.
In my congressional district, which is the 3rd district in the state of New Jersey, the incumbent Democrat is trying to sound like the Republican who had to retire because of ill health.
I resent what this scoundrel is doing and hope to call attention to the fact he perpetrating a fraud. But, we have a long time until November 2. Anything can happen between now and then.
That is why the voter must be vigilant and pay attention to the facts — not Harry Reid’s hot air!
