RE :”Love how you continue to attack conservatives, except the surrender monkey Ron Paul and give Zero a pass.

You are not defending McCain I hope. McCain Conservative??? He pooped in his pants over TARP bailout. It was sickening how cowardly he was. Please dont say you are happy with GWB presidency.

He did say that about his mom being 4 months pregant and he was born here. I cracked up and then he referenced Obama’s Dad being a foreigner.

Well I’d sure as hell feel a lot better tonight with Rudy in the White House, than Obama.

An old Liberal like McLame managed to beat the tough guy Rudy in FL. He finished a distant 3rd after betting the farm on Floriduh.

We’ve got time.

We didn't have time in the latter part of 2008, when we let Bush & Congress pass the first bailout. We didn't have time from 2000 - 2006 when we let a Republican controlled House, Senate & White House go to waste. We didn't have time in 97/98 when we allowed the Senate not to impeach Clinton. Do we honestly, truthfully have time now?

I remember researching him and finding out he basically governed to the left of Clinton. I couldn’t believe that he passed more fees, etc. in 10 years then Clinton did in 12. That spoke volumes!

Couldn’t believe it when he got his program. He is no Conservative. Also didn’t agree with home schooling as Governor.

I like Jindal even more now than I did before. I think he did great! Endless attacks easily backfire; he spoke to those who kicked the GOP out in 06 and 08 and identified the mistakes the party made. I think this will score some serious points. A rational, reasoned approach, instead of the rabid, bug-eyed attack that the libs expected.

I agree totally with your assessment. Jindal did a very appropriate and intelligent speech....and this is the first time I heard him speak. It’s nice to see sincere, honest intelligence...

My support of Rudy is based on one thing. The fact that I believe the world is going to Hell in a hand-basket with Mexico about to dissolve into chaos, Pakistan about to become a Taliban-run country with nukes, South America continuing to fall to despots like Chavez.

I want an SOB in the White House, who is loyal to this country, and Rudy IMHO is the only viable candidate that fits the bill. All of his views on social issues pale in comparison to what we will be facing on the world stage. And Obama is going to leave it as a huge mess when he is done with his first (and hopefully only) term.

"Usually the Mitt people are the Palin bashers."

What are you talking about? That's a boldfaced lie. I haven't encountered a single Mitt supporter who didn't also like Palin, and I communicate with many quite frequently by E-mail, where people are more likely to be honest about their opinions.

“Fred was in the primaries along with Mike to help John McCain win.”

There’s no way McCain would’ve become the nominee without those two.

Right now it is Roy Jenkins “Churchill”. Jenkins was/is a liberal politician, and knew him. So you have to take some things with a grain of salt, but overall it is a good read.

Even better is William Manchesters “Last Lion” series.

"That [game rigged] I blame on McCain."

I wish it were that simple. McCain was merely a patsy. He (or rather his overlords) ordered his entire campaign NOT to lay a glove on 0bama.

"Palin is not too conservative for the GOP. Last I read she had a 90% approval rating among the R's...."

Oh, I agree with you; It's the vibe the GOP is putting out there as they and McCain hung her out to dry. She became an unexpected "accidental" star - much to the GOP's chagrin.

"Romney ran on a pro-life Reagan platform, and while Governor was conservative on 24 of 26 issues, until he became pro-life which made 25. I understand why people perceive it the way you do, but in my opinion it's an inaccurate perception. Additionally, he's a Washington outsider, who's and expert on the economy."

Unfortunately, Romney had to cut some corners to succeed in Mass., and perception becomes reality. I believe he was railroaded during the Primary, as do you. As they say, he "WUZ ROBBED." By the NWO Elites.

To tell you the truth, after 4 years between the Marxist-in-Chief and the Globalist tearing at us from the other end, I'm not sure what'll be left of the America or Constitution by 2012...

Aren't I Mr. Optimism? :-D

Sarah has a long way to go before I'll buy into her. She's charismatic enough, for sure, but she has domestic problems with which she must deal...I have yet to have seen a ring on her single-parent daughter's hand...and she has a long way to go in her performances during interviews.

She bombed on during Gibson's interview and Couric's interview and was only competitive in her debate with Biden-and that should have been a cake-walk for any capable Conservative candidate.

She has yet to have demonstrated that she has the depth of knowledge and seriousness of attitude to garner my support.

It is absolute madness to jump on anyone's bandwagon yet. To do so would be making an irrational and emotional decision.

Whomever I support will have to earn it over the next two years.

"Obama is in a league of his own as was Reagan."

I just don't see it, never have. When I listen to Obama, I see an arrogant, preachy, narcissist, who is not nearly as brilliant as everyone says, and who looks like a goofy, big-eared 13-year-old on the way to his first dance. The alleged charisma totally escapes me. He's a bit like Al Gore, talking down to the audience as if they're children, but in a baritone instead of that semi-lispy, retardo Gore voice.

He is CLEVER, which is not the same as brilliant, and it is easy to be clever - and deceptive (lying) and get away with it when the media is covering for you and is in your hip pocket.

I am with you — his speech style is one of I am above all and he NEVER looks at the camera but at his teleprompters the whole time. I bet ZERO couldn’t wing a speech like Sarah and Rudy did at the Convention when their teleprompters messed up.

Have never gotten where they say ZERO is a good speaker. He rambles and rambles and when you reflect on what he said, you have a hard time figuring it out. To me a good speaker is one who can speak without using a teleprompter.

One of the best speeches I have ever heard was George Allen when he spoke to the OK GOP Convention the other year. He never looked down but look at the audience, spoke from the heart and no teleprompter. He was AWESOME to hear speak in person and probably why the MSM spent so much time going after him.

Bill Clinton didn’t appear to have “it” in 1988. Jindal isn’t running in 2012 because he is running for re-election as governor in late 2011. He is 37, young, very bright, and has room and time to grow. Don’t discount Jindal 8, 12, or even 16 years down the road.

I was at five of his events in OK and he specifically said over and over again he would not turn back the ban on government funds to international organizations on abortion. He did not believe that taxpayer money should go to fund abortions. He also was very big on adoptions.

Lot of people didn’t like him but he didn’t put a finger in the wind to see which way it was blowing. It was this is who I am and you knew where he stood on the issues.

Figure he will most likely be the next Governor of NY which would be AWESOME!

“It remains to be seen if Governor Palin will recover enough in four years to be able to win the general. But certainly she’ll be recovered in eight.”

I am thinking Romney is the best candidate for 2012. Sarah should serve two full terms as governor and then run in 2016 (if Romney doesn’t win).

0bama is a pathological liar and metrosexual. I can't figure out why Big Media swoons when pics turn up of Zero in swimming trunks. His torso looks like a 12 year old boy. Not the least bit masculine but that's what all the Leftists are about. Emasculate American men and the Amazon women can take over. Big Media took out George Allen with their over hyped phony story about ‘macaca’. Big Media will do their best to take out any rising Republican star.

Yes, we have a couple years to deal with it but I can’t agree with the rest.

Who among us can’t say we haven’t had a “pre-marriage” situation in our families? I think it just puts her among the normal people. I know she’ll get the vote of the midwest because it happens. Having a family member become pregnant before marriage has happened since time immorial. It’s unfortunate they didn’t get married before the baby was born but has no bearing in her political career.

I hadn’t thought of Rudy for awhile, but maybe he might be a viable candidate in ‘12. Remember how Dinkins failed after he was hailed as the 1st black mayor of NYC. The problem w/Rudy though is that he has been out of office too long and can only talk about 9/11.

"Rudy is not running again and neither should any other person who ran in the primary run again — they all had their faults."

I'd like to use your tactics and say the above means Sarah Palin shouldn't run according to you, but I know you're referring to those who ran for president. : )

If we employed YOUR rule, Reagan would never have run in 1980, and we would have missed out on his two glorious presidential terms, to the great detriment of our nation.
