The best and worst Republican leader – a little humor

    Borrowing from an old joke about the European Union, Jindal’s poor performance in the Obama response but great performance on TV the following day inspired me.  (Let me know how well it holds up or add to it!) In a Perfect World…. The punditry/interviews are handled by Bobby Jindal, The speeches are done by Sarah Palin, The principles are championed by Newt Gingrich, and it’s | Read More »

    Gingrich is only stating the obvious … but obviously the GOP is deaf

    I ran across the following essay by New Gingrich in the February 11, 2009 issue of The Washington Times. It offers a very succinct yet practical — and in my opinion, except for a lack of mention of the social issues, a very correct view — of Where Does the Conservative Movement Go from here? His advise basically is summed up in three steps he | Read More »

    BHAG’s for the 2012 GOP Contenders

    “BHAG’s”…or, “Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals” each of the early 2012 GOP Presidential prospects must do to significantly advance their cause:1) Mike Huckabee: Win over the Club for Growth.2) Sarah Palin: Somehow, through self-appointment or the 2010 election, become one of Alaska’s senators providing her with more exposure and involvement in national and international political issues.3) Mitt Romney: Donate 80% of his fortune to the National | Read More »

    Gingrich to the RNC

    Robert Novak suggested today that Newt should run for President in 12. I’m not buying this, for the reasons I state in my comment.At this point, Gingrich has too many self-inflicted wounds, too much dirt, and has real past personal issues that will not play well with much of the base. He’s a loyal soldier, a great leader, and we need him to be more | Read More »

    There are no illegals

    The recent killing of three members of the Bologna family in San Francisco, allegedly by an illegal Salvadoran immigrant who had been shielded from deportation on at least one occasion has now become the tarnished example of what happens when cities choose not to enforce the law: Law abiding citizens pay the price.
