“To me, it’s always seemed as if Kennedy was assasinated precisely so Johnson could create the “Great Society.””

You said a mouthful there. Even members of the left wing media will admit JFK’s assassination was a left wing plot, not a right wing deal (as they first suspected in the hours after the assassination). JFK was anti-communist. Go listen to vintage audio of his old speeches, esp. the one in Berlin. He sounds like Reagan! Obama has nothing in common with JFK politically.

As for Bush, one would have to be blind not to see that he has enabled socialism to grow in this country but NOT standing up to the Democrats. Right from the beginning he was compromising with them, like on the Kennedy education bill. Bush’s words when Obama was elected, gushing about how awesome it was, made me physically ill.

Until the Republican Party has the balls to cast out every RINO in its party we will continue to lose elections. People have no respect for hypocrites. Stand for Reagan conservatism and you have my vote, not otherwise.

Typo: I meant to write by not standing up

Read David Horowitz's article Scheer Lunacy at The Los Angeles Times for the inside story on this old commie bastard, Robert Scheer.

Robert Scheer is a 72 year old lifelong Socialist Pimp that was fired from the LA Times within the past few years IIRC.

Usually I see his name as author of an article, I skip over to the next, and go on as he’s a glorious waste of precious time to read.

I refer to him as “The sick unit”.

This article is a great example as to why I don’t read anything by the man. I only read the first sentence of the excerpt of this article.

I agree with that, my biggest complaint against Bush is his refusal to pardon the Border Patrol agents. He has a deal with the Mexican government.

"George W. Bush, the rich Texas Republican, who brought socialism to America"

Well, if that's true, how come all you Socialists hate him so much?

Well after 8 years, I think it was pretty darn clear that Mr. Bush was never about "reaching across the isle" or a "new tone" in politics. Like his pops, W really is a One Worlder, for whatever reason. The "new tone" and all that was cover for enacting his socialistic views.

Until the Republican Party has the balls to cast out every RINO in its party we will continue to lose elections. People have no respect for hypocrites. Stand for Reagan conservatism and you have my vote, not otherwise.

Like many, I held my nose and voted McCrazy, and I'm still conflicted about him losing. But the key was, like many others, I wasn't energized and didn't do anything to help his campaign like I did with W and the results of so much apathy is now smaking us in the face. So, like you, I'll not compromse again. Why waste the time?

Mr. “We’re not independent, we’re interdependent” Bush just kept implementing the socilaism Clinton started. Globalism begets socialism you know.

I didn't say politicians made bad loans, I said they made them possible.
