True. That political capital Dubya talked about vanished without much to show for it. This was a dreadful summer for him. The worst part was that he made it easier for his critics, not harder.

Sry I didnt put Paragraphs in here is a better version:

Republicans Ready for a Fight

It has no been almost one year since the Republican Party received a huge mandate in the 2004 elections. The results: NOTHING. Not entirely nothing as some issues have progressed, but in moral and social issues we have gotten nowhere.

By now you are probably either asking your self why or answering that question in you head. For those of you that might be a little bit behind, or are just preoccupied, here is the answer: Republicans in Congress and the White House are playing political games.

With the exception of nominating Judge Roberts, President Bush is not pushing the issues we want to fight for: social security, school vouchers, Medicare and Medicaid cuts, less business restriction and tax reform. And neither are the Republicans in Congress, they are carefully stepping through the mine field not wanting to start a war.

Well it’s time for that to end. We have been sitting hear for almost a year waiting and waiting. Our guns poised to fire and ready to fire, but no command has come down. No leader has taken charge and President Bush seems to be overly busy with other work. The Republican Party has fight in it, it just needs to be put to use, someone needs to light the fuse, and we need to stop wasting the precious months and years. Let’s Roll.

Did Dubya wisely use that political capital he talked about in January? What do we have to show for it besides him alienating much of the electorate?

Call em like they are: Dubya has been a dud for most of 2005.

Stay tuned

There is fight in the grand old party yet.

You have to understand when to pick your fights. How to keep your powder dry. Do not fire till you see the whites of their eyes and all that rot.

There is set up and there is delivery.

Clinton was all about showmanship and getting good press.

George Walker Bush is all about actually doing something and making a difference. If you don't know the difference then you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

To take Dan Rather WAY OUT OF CONTEXT, courage.

Well let's see. We didn't run out of Iraq with our tails between our legs. We didn't sell out to the Euro weenies, the UN, North Korea or Iran. We haven't had a tax hike. The left has gone totally mad an is imploding before our eyes. We won't have 2 new lefty members of the Supreme Court or more leftists federal judges, etc, etc.

Ya right, we got "nothing"

"Republicans Ready for a Fight" ??

THAT I would like to see! Why do I doubt that there even IS a republican party anymore? When was the last time there was a real republican party here in Arkansas?

We do have a couple of TRUE conservatives, but the ones that call themselves republicans (like the rino "right rev guv huckabee") are better suited for their tea parties than political parties.

Speaking of our "Right Rev Guv" Huckabee (aka the Huckster) ...

"Governor Huckabee has renewed his frustrations with FEMA, saying that information was not readily available from federal authorities in the wake of Hurricane Katrina."

He cannot keep his leftist crybaby mouth shut for five minutes without pandering to the jesse jacksons and sheenah bitches of the world. Every day he sounds more and more like john f'n kerry.

Oh man, how this crap gets old.

Unfortunately, I see there is still a contingent of FReepers who believe and pay attention to the MSM. You do yourself a disservice.

It would be nice if once, just once, I could come here and find FReepers reveling in victory, instead of bitching and moaning even though we control EVERY BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT.

It just gets so effin old.

Amen, PD!

I have had it up to the eyeballs with the armchair quarterbacks, who think "nothing" has been accomplished. Did they think that the media and the Rats were going to go away nicely? Anything that President Bush has accomplished is never enough for these people.

And I am fed up to the eyeballs with the pundits (supposedly on our side) who don't have enough nerve to stand up to the leftists in the media. Michael Brown had more gumption in his testimony today than any 10 people writing columns and/or appearing on the news channels.

I am fed up with all of the carpers. I can't be any plainer than that.

Republican Party received a huge mandate in the 2004

Hey Gipper, another recruit for the Mike Pence revolution. Please add him to the Operation Offset ping list.

A 1.5 margin of victory is not a "huge mandate". Ever heard of Mike Pence and Operation Offset? Got any idea how hard the Pres has been fighting for Soc Sec reform all year only to have the weak kneed ed Congressional Leadership bail on him? Read any of the half dozen Immigration Reform plans? Got any idea how important to the future of the Country having Pres Bush pick the next Chief Justice and other SC Justice is? Turn off the Dinosaur Media, spend a lot more time here at Free Republic, listening to Talk Radio and reading the blogs. There is a LOT going on the Dinosaur Media doesn't want you to know about.

You revel in victory when you win, and only for a short time.

Then you get to work enacting the laws your base sent you there to enact. Reveling accomplishes absolutely nothiing.

When you do nothing with what you've won, you've earned whatever crticism you get.

I did ask how he used that political capital he mentioned in january. It's gone now, in case you didn't notice.

So what has he done besides alienate much of the electorate?

The rank and File is ready to fight, but most of the Cowards in Washington DC should be relieved of Command.

We need leaders. Strong ones, one's who are not afraid to get their nose bloodied and who will get back on their feet and charge back in.

Not the spineless bastards that seem to infest the upper echelon of this party.

More votes than any President in history and gaining seats in the House and Senate is a huge mandate

We don't control every branch of government, not yet, the judicial is still fairly liberal

Yes on the Foriegn Affairs side we have made progress but at home, What? sure no tax hike, is that progress. I am sad to see fellow conservatives settling for that. Come on we can get EVERYTHING we want and NOW.

If you are active now in government, than great, but if not you need to be and that is the point of this.

it all boils down to the next SCOTUS nominee and if he gets confirmed, if he is not a true conservative, if the GOPers in the senate don't have the cujones to make sure that he or she is seated, then they will be in trouble not from the moderates but from within in the 2006 election, it is time for all of us to wake up and make sure our elected GOP officials are held accountable (for a variety of reasons, i think they read the nytimes and washpost too much, they are under the impression that the left and the moderates hold the key, not the right).
JMHO

Good. I would like to know if any of these complainers are busy with what I am doing: calling everyone I can think of to express outrage at Blanco, Landrieu, and the rest of the corrupt Louisiana crowd. I managed to help ratchet up Buyer's office today with detailed lists of outrageous things on Mary Landrieu and Gov. Blanco's wish lists. I detailed the corruption that I knew about (probably only a small fraction of the total) and made it plain I wanted the Congress to stand up to the press and the democrats.

We need to be about fighting back instead of wringing our hands and BLAMING BUSH. Honest to God, I wouldn't blame the guy if he resigned and took Cheney with him. Then everyone could try to rally around Denny Hastert.

Ping me when you post your rant. I am loaded for bear!!

Sorry, but I enjoy rubbing victory in the face of my enemies, as it demoralizes them. No need to put a limit on it.

We have as our enemy an opponent that cannot tell the truth about themselves, or risk further defeat. They cant even talk about who they really are. Their media cannot report reality. Their news people make $hit up. Their foot soldiers have to have fake organizational names. They cant do anything truthful and win.

I call that victory.

Now, I just returned from killing lots of wild animals in Alaska and eating them. Every bite was a win against some effed-up liberal. I loved every minute of it.

Then I come back here, and FReepers are bitching again about some trivial crap. We won, people. Get over yourselves.

What a load of Bull Crap.

Bush traveled all over the country trying to get support for his social security reform... and got no where. The public did not support it. The media and the left managed to shape public opinion.

Let me give you a tiny clue about how the real world works. When the economy is good and jobs are plentiful and wages are pretty good .... voters want nothing changed. Propose any sort of economic change and the voters will reject it. And they will let you know that changes will not be tolerated at the polls. Elected officials of both parties are reluctant to do things the voters don't want done. It is dangerous to their political health.

The Democrats socialist pitches did nothing in the 1920s. Times were good and public wanted nothing changed. However, when the depression came the voters wanted things fixed. They wanted change and would vote and support the man who offered change. That man was FDR.

The inflation and economic stagnation of the Carter years allowed Reagan to make changes. But once things were going good after 1984 the public would not support Reagan's proposed changes.

Things were good during the Clinton administration and Hillary care could not get off the ground. It matters not which party is in power. If the economy is good the public will not allow change.

It takes bad or unsettled times to make changes in our economic programs. When things are going good voters will not support economic policy changes. Both Democratic and Republican congressmen and senators can read the polls and they do listen to voters. They will not do what the public does not want done.

So many people just don't understand that we have a government " of the people, by the people, and for the people." Some of us have a great deal of trouble understanding how voters react to stimulus.

Got a "gimme money" letter from RNC today wanting to know why I'm not "contributing like I used to" ... wrote across the form to be sent back ... "because you guys aren't the ones I bought the last time, and I'm going to be a little more careful in what I purchase ... so I'll see what you do about borders, judges and the like, then maybe I'll send you another check. Otherwise, my money goes to those who are looking out for ME."

I am working to let our elected leaders know what we want. I am not blaming Bush that is the farthest thing from my mind. Why he seems to be not very active I dont know, but that is not his job. That is our job, but we need to someone to lead us. Someone to tell us where to direct our fire, and I dont see that person right now. If someone does let me know so I can research and probably support him/her.

Old and counterproductive.

Constructive criticism is one thing. Bitching and moaning just to prove how smart and independent you are is another. I wish someone would take the time to list all the things that have gone our way in the last 20 years.

We are on the cusp of actually settling in for the long haul...and there are impatient people who are willing to just toss it away, because they started to see the trees instead of the forest. To mix about fifty metaphors.

Micheal Brown earned my respect today. It was nice to see a man go down fighting.

He did an especially good job of slapping the press around.

BTW, after your Fair Weather Soldiers vanity, I had not had a chance to listen to Laura Ingram. I did this morning. Your disappointment with her is well placed. Pandering comes to mind.

We don't need a leader to tell us what to do! We are Republicans, not simple-minded democrats!

Are you outraged at the press? I am!! Call talk radio! Write letters! Call your congressman! Call the RNC and tell them to cut Chris Shays off from any campaign money!

Put a bumper sticker on your car if you don't have one! Do not apologize...berate the democrats for their corruption and incompetence!!

There, is that enough? Will that keep you busy for a while? We do not need a leader! We HAVE a leader, and he is called the President of the United States, and it is our job to defend him! The man puts in long days, is under threat of death every damn day, has given up his privacy and simple pleasures, is under attack constantly from the vilest members of our society, and still he soldiers on. And YOU think we need a leader? For shame!!!

Get off your butt and follow the leader you have!

Its one thing for the president to stick his neck out on Social Security which was absolutely the right thing to do and quite another if he doesn't here us over the Dem'rats and the MSM media to let him know we agree with him.

If the president lost this one, then we lost it for him.

We failed.

--You revel in victory when you win, and only for a short time.--

"Spoken like a loser."

Speak for yourself.

You win, you celebrate. Then you WORK.

'Rubbing noses in it' accomplishes jack squat. That is the talk of the loser - like the end zone celebrations in football. Act like you've been there before, and do what you you need to stay there.

Work matters. Accomplishments matter. Those are lasting things. Celebrating is temporary.

If you concentrate on the latter to the detriment of the former, you will soon have nothing to celebrate.

But hey, go on throwing out tough talk about how 'rubbing noses in it' really matters. Then enjoy it as your opponents do the same to you because you failed to do the actual work.

Clearly you think of politics as some kind of sporting event wherein you have chosen, for whatever reason, to root for the Washington Elephants vs. the Washington Jackasses, and the election is all that matters to you.

Many of us, though, are not that shallow. We support the party only because we have specific, substantive policy objectives and ideological stances in mind, such a desire to return to Constitutional governance. And we haven't seen many successes on that front -- more surrenders than advances, in fact.

Sorry if our petty national interests get in the way of you enjoying the Big Game every other November.
