I have been following the Republican candidates for President. I am not impressed, overall. May people ahve their favorites, of course, but there is no passion for any of them. There is always "He is great!....but". Usually in the social area. Today my favorite, Fred Thompson ducked the Washington Press corps. I thought "Big deal. He wasn't going to get a fair shake from these folks." Then I got to thinking (always dangerous) WWRD(What Would Ronnie Do?). He would take the bull by the horns and gave a question and answer session that would have changed minds an made front pages. He was the "Great Communicator" Our curren president would not be in so much trouble if he would communicat more often. You dont have to be great.
But Ronnie was.
He was the best with quick quips "There He Goes Again!" was a favorite of mine. He was honest and sincere. He spoke from the heart and you knew it. He went toe to toe wiht the 'evil empire' and they blink, then imploded!
I like Fred, will send him money. But he isn't Ronald Reagan. No matter how much I wish he was. No one is. I sure do miss him. And John Wayne... but he deserves his own tread!
Where have all the cowboys gone? (Rush has a GREAT parody to that tune, lamenting the same theme)
Did you make that up yourself, or is that an actual poster that I can buy? I would really like to buy that ASAP. It would make a great stocking stuffer. Also I would like to commission it painted on the side of my house.
It would be nice, then, if we could all get behind Duncan Hunter who may just happen to be more like Reagan than Reagan was.
“Today my favorite, Fred Thompson ducked the Washington Press corps.”
If John Wayne was alive today he would dodge seving his country as he did in WWII, hero my ass.
“Duncan Hunter who may just happen to be more like Reagan than Reagan was”
I met Governor Reagan at a campaign rally in Fountain Valley, CA's Mile Square Park when he was campaigning for president and I met John Wayne at the boat parade in Newport Beach, CA.
I'm generally not star-struck and have met many celebrities but I was on both occaisions.
We'll do better sticking to actual people.
I did not get your picture. could you resend it?
Hate to be the bearer of bad news but only pygmies who might be able to tie his shoe laces will be seen far into the foreseeable future.
John Wayne was a deeply patriotic American in real life. That’s a fact, not Hollywood BS.
There should not be a comma after “heathen.”
I dont blame FDT skipping the wash.piss corpse.They were alot more civil back then as opposed to now.He just needs to talk to the people and screw the wash. insiders.
Do you want your ass kicked verbally on this website?Why dont you check the facts before you let your alligator mouth overload your hummingbird behind OK?
