I would if it weren’t for his foreign policy. I’m done with nation building.
New tag line!
Fair enough. I agree with you on that.
Did you see the interview? Cheney is living on borrowed time.
I'm not so sure about that. Turnout is key. Consider 2008; until Sarah stepped into the picture, McCain was driving a huge portion of the electorate to stay home. Without Palin as his running mate, McCain's loss would have been epic. If we get another Dole or another McCain as the candidate, state and local races will suffer.
Thanks for that - I’m already sold on Cain. It’ll be useful to share around in the coming weeks and months!
The team isn't very good.
Of course, we have to deal with the cards we're dealt. I have no idea what the ballot will look like when my state finally votes in March (the defacto nominee will likely have been decided long before my state votes).
But looking at the candidates we have now, I've grouped them into three categories:
WOULD BE PLEASED TO VOTE FOR:
The Republican field is uninspired and I’m not committed to any one candidate. I may find myself casting a protest vote in the primary.
Little known fact is that Bush's Medicare D plan saved Medicare $90 billion a year by introducing free market aspects to the plan and allowing generics instead of brand names. He enlisted Wal*Mart and the other large drug retailers to make special deals for Medicare customers. At Wal*Mart they can get just about anything they need for four bucks.
TARP was imposed upon him by the world situation. In the middle of the night someone was electronically withdrawing billions of dollars an hour from money market accounts and if not stopped immediately it would have crashed the world's banks.
He had no stimulus and was not involved with the auto industry. That was Obama. Yet, so many are eager to join the Democrats and media in bashing Bush erroneously. The media blamed him for everything except polio for eight years and reported noting good that he did. They even made the good sound bad. Therefore, I guess it is normal that many conservatives would accept some of the lies as truth.
That makes more sense than one list in descending order - and would pretty-much agree with your choices.
Hard to believe in a nation of 300 million with more than half leaning right that this is the cream of the crop - we surely have our work cut out for us.
