CINCINNATI, Ohio (CNN) -- Warning of war but expressing hope for peace, President Bush outlined his case Monday night against Saddam Hussein's "arsenal of terror," saying the Iraqi leader must disarm or face a possible military strike. Continues.

There he goes again.

Dick Morris said tonight on Fox that the Repub. party is heading for extinction due to the increase in minorities in the U.S., that more and more states are now "blue" Dem. ones. I thought the trend was going the other way since Sept. 11 and the leadership of Pres. Bush. What do you think?

Saddam, McDermott assures us, can be -- and should be -- taken at his word, at "face value."

Fascinating how in our time we get someone who embodies Nevile Chamberlain, Benedict Arnold and Alfred E. Newman, all in one sentence.

Morris is a realist, not an idealist. He cannot see that minorities are not necessarily doomed to craven self-interest, but can be enlightened to God and country above self.

After Nixon, the demise of the Repubican Party was also predicted. But, like the Marines, we just needed a few good men, ...like Reagan and Bush...and here we are kicking again.

You will have to get the minorities to give up God and family before they will be safe from becoming Republicans.

Yes, Hollywood, schools, universities, TV are working hard to make this a nation of atheists who put their selfish interests before morality and family, but there are still many of us to pray and work to reverse their damage.

Dick Morris doesn't believe in God...yet. Saul didn't either, until he had a vision. You never know. I think I'll add Dick Morris to my prayers tonight.

He is correct. However his analysis is off. The Black population is static. It has been 12-13% for at least 4 decade of years. It votes Democratic 90%. There are signs that it might become more conservative in the future but it is not likely to change that much. For the Repubs to run Condi Rice or Powell in 2008, as Morris suggest is a desperate move that will insure a Dem win. When Roe vs Wade found a constitutional right to abortion in the penumbra of the constitution the Black population has remained static ever since. It will also remain heavily dem for at least the next generation or two. The pain a prominent Black goes through if he becomes conservative is horrendous.

The Hispanic population on the other hand is exploding in our country. I saw a government projection that believes the Hispanics will constitute greater than 50% of our population by 2050. More than all other peoples combined.

The Hispanic votes 70-80% Dem. This is an abomonation that will probably change if the Repubs make room for them. They, as a group are family oriented, Christian, Pro life (or close to a majority are) hard working etc. They are natural conservatives.

If the repubs could get them to vote conservative our borders would be shut down overnight. The Dems would be shouting from the housetop.

The Cuban contingent of the Hispanic people vote majority Repub. It can be done. I believe Bush as governor received close to a majority of the hispanic vote. (someone clarify)

The other thing that needs to be done is for the Evangelical Christian to get out and vote pro life. In a House contest here in Ohio we calculated that 12% voted pro life. (Albeit the main reason is that they were not registered or didn't bother to vote.)

The reproductive figures of the whites in our country is below replacement rates. How does this make sense?

<< [Baghdad Babs and the] Bagdad Three deserve to be ridiculed and shunned forever more. >>

Perhaps not.

Perhaps, as we now see the USSR's Afghanistan Expedition for its having revealed the psychpathologically-criminalized, abjectly-corrupt and profoundly rotten ineffectuality of the Evil Empire to the crystal clarity of the light and magnifying glass held over it by Our Beloved President Ronald Reagan -- and the megalomaniacal mass-murdering of Osama bin Ladin and spit-flecked hatred of Schroeder's crime-family 'cabinet' and Jack Straw's squalidly-amoral 'moral equivilency' as having woken US to the depth of the rest of the world's hesperophobia -- and hatred, specifically of Our Beloved FRaternal Republic -- we will come to see Baghdad Babs, Yasser Daschle and his Baghdad Three for what they are:

But an indication of the enormity of their own Evil and of the depth of the hatred of Our Nation and of every last FRee Man that drives them and with which their "political party" seeks to use to infect and to incite those among US who suffer the envy-motivated and hatred and-rage-engined pschopathology the rest of US, in this country, have so far permitted them to get away with calling "liberalism."

Good one John. Our Nation's Judo President is King and the DNC's Emperor looking decidedly naked, eh?

Sock it to 'em Sock it to 'em Sock it to 'em Sock it to 'em Sock it to 'em Sock it to 'em Sock it to 'em Sock it to 'em .... HehHehHEh [Little Rowan & Martin's Laugh In humor for yah there!]

Don't underestimate the monorities. There are many bright and educated people with influence in the minority groups, who have the same beliefs and ideals as most republicans.

The road to Baghdad has been paved.

Will it be a freeway or a toll road? The answer depends on whether Saddam is completely insane or not. After the last Gulf war, no rational human being could suffer from any remaining delusions regarding Iraq's chances for military equivalence or Saddam's chances of survival once a shooting war has begun and blood spilled. If Saddamn has any contact with reality, he will take his money leaving Iraq to successors under the guidance of the US or UN. On the other hand if Saddam has completely lost contact with reality, there is still hope that somone on his staff will punch Saddam's ticket saving us the toll fee.

Someone who has spent his country's huge income on new forts, euphemisticaly known as palaces, while 'thousands of children die each month' as a result of the 'sanctions' isn't considering giving it up. He does not see himself as vulnerable.

The more I hear liberals these days, the more they remind me of Democrats during the Monica mess.

They pulled out all the stops for Clinton then, now they're sparing no effort to save Saddam.

You have revealed the actual thought processes of the democrat party! Well done, JH!

This should get wide distribution - all the conservative talk shows should discuss it.

If the (hated by Dims) Republicans think anything is a good idea, the (obstructionist) Dimocrats will fight it, even it it means national disaster.

As for tonight's speech, the bottom line: The President, yet again, out-flanks his enemies, leaving the Democrats a smoldering heap, more decimated than Iraq's army after their rout from Kuwait.

I always love reading your two cents worth, John. Thanks for the ping!

There he goes again.

The straight-talking, no-nonsense, tell-it-like-it-is-and-let-the-chips-fall-where-they-may Texan hits another one straight into the bleachers.

Yep, he sure did ! And you followed up nicely with one of your own. Good Job, JH2 !!

Sorry to break the news to ya, Tommy, ol' chum, but I'll tell the real reason your party's stock is as strong as Enron's.

For openers, here's three reasons: Jim McDermott, David Bonior, Mike Thompson.




Oh! Wiseguy!

Yep.

Never missed a show!

AND I remember when the same gentleman knew by 0100 Hrs on the morning after the 1960 Presidential Election that he had won the election and that the fraud by way of which the "DemocRATS" were in the process of stealing it had been exposed and that the "DemocRATS" and other criminals involved had been caught red handed. And that "Tricky" American, Mr Nixon, opted, "for the good of the Nation," to not pursue a review of the matter.

Quite a tricky feller, that one.

And: Here come d' judge Here come d' judge Here come d' judge Here come d' judge Here come d' judge!

I hope I didn't come across as underestimating the minorities. But consider: Justice Thomas is still pretty much a pariah within the Black community even after a decade. He should be one of their heroes.

Harry Bellafonte has just released a horrible screed against Sec Powell. A prominent black and conservative person is crucified daily. To this day the conservative Black is under full blown attack continuously.

The Hispanic community is more balanced even though the ledger is skewed way to the left.

It is not that I underestimate the minorities it is just that I hope that I have a reasoable view of their enormous problems.

Their problems are not unlike the problems of the moral opposition to Hitler in the 1930's in face of the brown shirts.

Godspeed, The Dilg

The leaflet campaign is already well underway. Millions of Iraqi's know the bombs are coming. And they will figure out that there is only one way to keep the bombs from dropping or to make them stop after they begin falling. Saddam may be very deranged, but if he has any grasp on reality or any trusted advisor there is always a chance for persuasion.

If not, everyone around him becomes a potential assassin capable of preventing or ending the bombing. There is more to the "war of words" than just attempting to persuade the powers that be. Close counts in hand grenades; so it is with the "war of words".

Wouldn't you just love to see the egg all over the faces of our President's opponents when the Iraq regime falls, like Romania, without Iraqi lives being lost.
