  • Reagan and Obama: How to Write a Campaign Speech if You're a Fraud

    The heart of the political campaign is your claim to be a great leader. If you’re honest, writing the stump speech is simple; articulate the challenges confronting the community or country and explain how your ideas and skills will improve the lives of constituents. But what do you do if, when the cameras are gone, the auditorium empty and you’re all alone, you face the terrible secret that you’re a fake. A phony. A charlatan. A true politician? What if, instead of running for office because you have solutions and character, you ran because you love attention, power, money, nice...

    Republican operatives in Washington are praising Scott Brown's latest campaign ad. The ad, a contrast spot being run by the Republican Massachusetts senator, shows that Brown's Democratic opponent, Elizabeth Warren, is to the left on economic issues of John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Lyndon B. Johnson, Gerald Ford, and Ronald Reagan. Instead of being in the mainstream, Warren, along with President Barack Obama, is shown to be an opponent of free enterprise. The ad is called, "Let America Be America Again." "Devastating," says one Republican operative. "Long--but does a really good job of showing how radical the Obama/Warren view of...

    Between December 1983 and February 1984, U.S. battleships retaliated against combatants who had targeted the MNF. The USS New Jersey undertook a relentless counterattack against Syrian and Druze forces, shooting its 16-inch guns for the first time since the Vietnam War. By April, the entire MNF, which the United Kingdom had joined, had left Lebanon. The civil war continued until 1990. President Reagan supported Secretary of State George Shultz's arguments in favor of U.S. diplomacy and peacekeeping in Lebanon. But in Weinberger's view, Lebanon was the wrong fight for the United States. In a speech on November 28, 1984,...

    “I don’t believe my speeches took me as far as they did merely because of my rhetoric or delivery, but because there were certain basic truths in them that the average American citizen recognized. When I first began speaking of political things, I could feel that people were as frustrated about the government as I was. What I said simply made sense to the guy on the the street and it’s the guy on the street who elects presidents of the United States. And that’s exactly what happened to me.” Ronald Reagan The staring contest with the stump speech I...

    “It’s not that liberals are ignorant, it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.” Day one- Check out An American Life by Ronald Reagan from the library. I started reading this last year, but had to stop when school started and I was too busy memorizing all the states in China for Geography 101. That was useful…but then again, you never know. I may be shipped there to work in a Gulag and, being an American, I can work my way up and start a business as a tour guide. It might come in handy to know those...

    Address to the Nation on Independence Day July 4, 1986 My fellow Americans: In a few moments the celebration will begin here in New York Harbor. It's going to be quite a show. I was just looking over the preparations and thinking about a saying that we had back in Hollywood about never doing a scene with kids or animals because they'd steal the scene every time. So, you can rest assured I wouldn't even think about trying to compete with a fireworks display, especially on the Fourth of July. My remarks tonight will be brief, but it's worth remembering...

    David Bahnsen of Newport Beach, California is a Senior Vice President of Morgan Stanley, and also serves on the Board of Advisers of the California Recovery Project with Dr. Arthur Laffer. Bahnsen has abandoned his earlier support of the Ron Paul crusade, and now describes himself as an "economically literate Republican." He is the author of "The Undiscerning and Dangerous Appreciation of Ron Paul." Bahnsen says "It is the ironic that Ron Paul's alleged praiseworthiness comes from his devotion to the Constitution, when in fact, he has emphatically rejected it." Bahnsen has many family and business connections with libertarians. His...

    The government is the problemBy Julio Severo Thirty years ago, President Ronald Reagan said in his memorable first inaugural address, “The government is the problem”. (Watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wteMdwFo0Pw) Not that the government in his time was doing what it is doing today, by promoting sodomy, abortion and even Islam. Government was already the problem because it did not cease to intrude and to mutilate the natural rights and freedoms of people. Government, which has the responsibility to control criminality, was busy controlling the non-criminal affairs of people. This Problem was so big that Reagan, as a president, was...

    Last Friday, an attaché of important gay people from Philadelphia made a trip to Washington D.C. as invited guests of President Barack Obama for the White House’s first-ever gay pride reception. There, they danced to the sounds of a Marine Corps band; they dined on crab cakes and canapés; they hand-delivered letters from concerned citizens like this 18-year old who has had four people close to him gunned down, and noted rhyming raconteur CA Conrad; and some of them took advantage of photo opportunities to give the late President Ronald Reagan the middle finger.

    Mideast: As Moscow tests a new ballistic missile, our secretary of state expresses concern that Moscow is sending attack helicopters to the murderous regime in Syria. The only thing changed is the degree of our naivete. On June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan spoke to the people of West Berlin at the base of the Brandenburg Gate, near the Berlin Wall, and uttered this famous demand: "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" A quarter-century later to the day, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the U.S. was "concerned about the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on...

    Scott Walker beat the spread. Sometime politics is like betting on football. It's not just about whether your team wins. It's about whether you beat the spread. The rough calculation going into Tuesday's recall election in Wisconsin was that if Governor Scott Walker won by less than five percentage points, the race would not have any clear national-level implications, but if he won by five points or more, it would. The final result, 53.2% to 46.3%, is a margin of 6.9 percentage points. He beat the spread... --snip-- But we are finally reaching the Thatcher Line: the point at which...

In a statement issued after the Romneys' visit, Mrs. Reagan said she believes that Romney has the experience and leadership skills that, in her words, "our country so desperately needs."

    Leadership: The president's narcissistic self-insertion into official presidential biographies would have us believe the Great Communicator would agree with the Great Teleprompter Reader on taxes. Well, there he goes again. Not willing to wait until his visage is enshrined next to actor and donor George Clooney on Mt. Rushmore, President Obama's helpers have notoriously inserted their fearless leader into the official White House biographies of virtually every former president back to Calvin Coolidge, except for Gerald Ford. The White House defended the practice of appending presidential biographies by saying it is common Web practice to provide links to ease navigation...

    UNITED NATIONS — A former Nicaraguan foreign minister who once called President Ronald Reagan “the butcher of my people” has been appointed to represent Libya at the United Nations after its delegate was denied a visa, the Nicaraguan government said on Wednesday. Nicaragua said the former minister, Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann, 78, an outspoken critic of the United States and a Catholic priest, would replace the Libyan diplomat Ali Abdussalam Treki, who had been unable to obtain a visa to enter the United States. Libya’s ambassador to the United Nations, Abdurrahman Mohamed Shalgam, defected in late February after denouncing Col. Muammar...

    We’ve decided on a new feature at Conservative Outcry – a daily (meaning as often as we get to it) response to a randomly chosen Wonkette article.Although we pay very little attention to Wonkette, many liberals seem to enjoy their musings.It is a known fact, however, that liberals are frequently incapable of discerning fact from fiction; especially, when fiction is presented in the form of a “left-leaning American online magazine of topical satire and political gossip”. While there is nothing wrong with satire, satire should always be based in fact. There is nothing funny about…hmmm…how do liberals say is...oh yes, non-truths (as opposed...
