    This is arguably the most crucial Presidential election of this generation. In fact, a win for Republicans this time around may have more of an effect on the country than Ronald Reagan’s in 1980 or Bill Clinton’s in 1992. Both caused dramatic changes to the way that America operated, but neither will be as important as what happens next year. Ted Cruz is a man of seconds. He’s viewed by many as the most conservative overall candidate, but that’s the extent of his polarization. Otherwise, he’s the right combination of being the second most this or the second most that....

    "No offense meant to the honored former governor of Massachusetts. I mean, he may have been a horrible candidate, but he was a decent man. Of course, after Dukakis, Democrats determined that decency didn't win presidential elections. Massachusetts ceded to Arkansas and the rest, as they say, is history." Source_____________________________________________________ Mitt Romney and his family are decent people - hard working Americans who love this country. They sought and won the primary baton - tirelessly campaigned to the bitter end of the campaign. I'll boil my post-election analysis down to this: We need to elect a candidate that, besides running...

    Over the last few days, since Romney clinched the GOP nomination for President by going over the 1,144 committed delegates needed with his win in the Texas Primary on Tuesday, May 29, 2012, a number of new endorsements have come in for Romney's bid for the Presidency. These include George Shultz, former Secretary of State; Condoliza Rice, former Secretrary of State and National Security Advisor; Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate; and Nancy Reagan, wife of President Ronald Reagan. Here's what each of them had to say on the date they endorsed Romney: NANCY REAGAN endorses Mitt...

    Welcome home, Mr. Governor. You have fought the good fight. You have earned a few scars, gained a few wrinkles, and absorbed a few blows. And you have nudged the country, ever so slightly, in the right direction. For that we are grateful. You brought the straightforwardness of Texas to the national limelight. You captured the resoluteness of Texans and reminded us that unambiguity and resolve are qualities that all Americans should employ. You showed us that slow talk can be straight talk, that truth is simple, that reality is easily explained. No, you can't add regulation and jobs at...

    Once again a rival attorney general candidate is blaming Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown for the city spiraling homicide rate -- and offering to help local officials fight crime. This time it's Republican state Sen. Chuck Poochigian, who traveled to Oakland from Fresno last week to criticize Brown's inability to put the brakes on violent crime. Poochigian also offered to help support state Sen. Don Perata's plan to fight crime and noted that Brown was not invited to Perata's summit last week that including 40 public officials and community activists. "I commend Sen. Perata for acknowledging that Oakland is in the...

    Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is leaving open the possibility of backing Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein for re-election, despite an impassioned appeal from her GOP rival, former state Sen. Dick Mountjoy. Schwarzenegger surprised his Republican backers shortly after the primary when he said he would have no problem endorsing a Democrat for office this year. "If I like someone, absolutely,'' he said at a June 8 campaign stop in Antioch. While the governor didn't name any names, Steve Schmidt, his campaign manager, wasn't quite so circumspect. "Like most Californians, (Schwarzenegger) thinks Dianne Feinstein is a great senator,'' Schmidt said. While Schwarzenegger...

    Although his political account bulges with $4.7 million in cash and he has no opponent in sight, US Senator Edward M. Kennedy is on a fund-raising rampage from coast to coast, a campaign that Democratic supporters say is designed to leave him without a Republican opponent for the first election in his four decades in the Senate. The Kennedy fund-raising bandwagon comes to Boston March 4, when the senator and his family are throwing a birthday party for him expected to raise at least $500,000. Kennedy, who is turning 73, is pressing the state's Democratic establishment for the event that...

    Re: Your Favorite Presidential Candidate (GOP)? davidd on Friday, August 02 @ 13:08:08 MDT Tom Tancredo is one of the most patriotic members of Congress. He sincerely cares about the U.S. and he believes in the rule of law. Tom Tancredo is 100% opposed to illegal immigration and he understands the damage that it is doing to the U.S. President Bush is in favor of illegal immigration and he is not carrying out his sworn duty to uphold the Constitution and to protect the U.S. from invasion of huge masses of illegal aliens. The time has come to replace Bush...
