That's what kind of takes the wind out of my sails, too. We haven't had a clear leader who could unite conservatives announce just yet. I mean, Hunter has announced, but he hasn't been any more effective at getting his points out than President Bush. The problem with that is for me, he'd be just as effective as President Bush at defending himself against liberal attacks. We all know how President Bush has done...nothing but silence in response. It's just maddening.
We need a leader who can actually reach the people. I respect and support President Bush. Sadly, he has proven he is simply incapable of defeating the liberal propaganda machine. Fortunately, the results of his actions go a long way in his favor. So in the long run, history will favor him but for now? His administration is getting eaten alive by the liberal propaganda machine.
We need better than this. We need a leader who can promote his message.
Sorry for the rant...
It's Okay, sometimes we all need to rant. In the end I think I will be for Thompson or Brownback. Neither likely to get the nomination, but I'll be able to sleep at night.

As a Bush supporter, Bush's silence has been absolutely maddening, and I think that his silence will be a big factor in the 2008 election, we will be looking for a ripper and a brawler, not another "above the fray" Frist wannabe.
That, in a nut shell, is why George W. Bush will go down in History as a mediocre President at best or a failed President at worst.
Lincoln and Churchill saved their respective nations by inspiring the Home Front in spite of numerous early military defeats.
Bush has almost lost a war that is of vital strategic interest to America by yielding the Bully Pulpit to Copperheads and by waging a war designed not to displease Copperheads in any way in spite of stunning early military victories.
American political dynamics being what they are, with the Sheeple of the Center tipping the balance in Presidential elections, makes the election of a true Conservative possible only after the unmitigated disaster of a liberal such as Jimmy Carter.
Likewise, the election of a Hillary is only possible after the disaster of a Home Front that has been allowed to be thoroughly demoralized during war time.
Because of the Sheeple of the Center, a Conservative cannot and will not be elected President in 2008.
Hoping to get Hillary in the White house so that a Conservative is elected in 2012 after a disasterous Hillary Presidency is playing games with America's very survival as America cannot afford to abandon 70% of the World's known oil reserves to a nuclear armed Iran. In addition, for those who use abortion as a litmus test, a Hillary White House would pack every vacancy in the Supreme Court with Ruth Ginsburg clones and keep late term abortion as the U.S. law of the land for decades to come.
Come November 2008, I would be extremely surprised if Giuliani is not the Republican candidate. At that time, I will not stay home and I will vote for Giuliani to ensure that the next President will not surrender America's vital interests in the Persian Gulf and will not pack the Supreme Court with Ruth Ginsburg clones.
Those who want to stay home or throw their vote away in a protest vote have a First Amendment right to do so but they will have hurt America with their political irrelevance just as Bush has hurt America by choosing to be politically irrelevant.
