(NEW YORK)(February 20, 2011) Republican Presidential Candidate Andy Martin holds a New York news conference today, Sunday February 20th at 12:45 P.M. to announce the theme of his Monday evening speech in Manchester, New Hampshire and the overall theme of his presidential campaign: The New Ronald Reagan Revolution.
“On this hundredth anniversary of the birth of President Ronald Reagan almost every Republican organization has tried to glom on to some of Reagan’s later glory. They focus on the “balloons” but not the burdens Reagan faced in seeking the White House. We have largely overlooked the facts of Reagan’s life, the challenges he overcame and the unusual manner in which he ascended to the presidency. Ronald Reagan had a profound impact on my life as a young law graduate.
“I start by reminding my party that Reagan was opposed by the Republican establishment in 1975-1976. After he lost in 1976, Republican leaders said Reagan was finished, ‘too old’ to run again, washed up. In 1979-80, Republican leaders again opposed Reagan. He triumphed.
“Reagan had perseverance. Most of all he had faith in his ideas. His own staff told him not to deliver the ‘Tear down this wall’ speech. Reagan stood his ground. As a labor leader he had the guts to stand up to communists in labor unions when the polite thing to do would have been to turn a blind eye.
“Today Republican leaders are again trying to take the easy way out. They criticize other Republicans, and over one hundred million Americans, who challenge Barack Obama’s mysterious origins. Karl Rove says people who have doubts about Obama’s birth are ‘unfit’ to be Republicans. In other words, the same Washington elitists that were against Reagan are now against fighting for the facts and trying to find the truth about Obama.
“There is a parallel here. The party establishment, once again, is wrong. Only a free and open and fair Republican Party can recapture the White House. Karl Rove’s ‘closed club’ of Washington insiders is doomed to defeat. I am proud to stand with Tea Party activists who are trying to ‘wake up’ Republicans and end ‘business as usual’ in the capital.
“As a young law student I faced a similar challenge to Reagan. I looked to then-Governor Reagan for inspiration, and he has made all the difference in my life. Monday evening I will detail my views and explain how my campaign is going to exemplify and lead the New Ronald Reagan Revolution. And, yes, like Reagan before me, the Republican Party establishment and the liberal media establishment are trying to undermine my campaign. Nothing changes.
“Due to some unforeseen confusion on the part of misinformed Republican leaders we have had to change the location of the New Hampshire speech Monday evening. Details will be available Monday for those wanting to attend. All are welcome, even protesters. Pity them. Reagan always had lots of protesters and detractors assailing him. I stand in good company.
“In the meantime I am proud to announce today that I will launch the New Ronald Reagan Revolution in Manchester, New Hampshire on President’s Day, February 21, 2011,” Martin will state at his Sunday news conference. Martin flies to New Hampshire on Monday morning for a three-day round of speeches, interviews and TV advertising production. Martin’s TV ads should begin airing in New Hampshire on Wednesday, February 23rd.
