His tough and boisterous demeanor is getting old fast now when once it was refreshing. It is surprising to see he is more and more falling into the Obama fan club. There are too many conservatives across the country where his mouth and tough guy stance would go over like a lead balloon. If he has aspirations to run for office, he needs to get Rasmussen to do early polling because he will find out he is not a man for all the people. He's a big disappointment to me.
Excellent closing Benediction. Cardinal Dolan made an appeal in part to true Christians and Catholics throughout the nation to honor sacred law. Catholics voted in droves for Obama in 2008. There is plenty going on in the Dem party that is against God, nature and religious freedom. Hopefully, their conscience if not wisdom will guide them this time to make the right choice in November.... Dolan slapped them good last night on these issues.

It would seem that Pat has lost the fight for his vision of America even though what he says in many of his articles ring true. While I am a steadfast and loyal fan of Pat for many years, it seems that he has thrown in the towel. It would be nice to get an uplifting article from time to time, just to mask the dire circumstances that could be ahead. But then, he wouldn't be fooling anyone, sadly.
Clint may be a little wobbly at 82, but his thoughts are clear and he can still point a gun a shoot straight. He summed it up with a very sensible line when he appealed to all Americans regardless of political persuasion........... "When somebody does not do the job, we've got to let him go."

Matthews: Obama Is The Perfect Man

Matthews is a sick individual obsessed with Obama. He loves his marxist ideology. Here is a clip from an article... On December 23, 2009, Matthews, during an interview with the openly socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (D - Vermont), spoke in glowing terms about the famed radical organizer and communist fellow-traveler Saul Alinsky. Matthews referred to Alinsky as "one of our heroes from the past, from the Sixties," and added: "I always try to remind myself of Saul Alinsky when I get confused." In another interview he basically mentioned that if you did not cry at the Obama speech he heard, you were not an American. He's just plain sick.

McCain commented that in viewing the tax returns of Mitt Romney, there was nothing remarkable about them. From a political standpoint, I can understand why Romney doesn't want to give fodder to the Dems because they will try and nitpick his returns and steer people away from the real issues and non achievements of a failed Obama presidency. This is all the Dems have, and it's nothing.
I think long time followers of Pat Buchanan know that his not being PC on this issue was just a part of the reason of his being let go by MSNBC. His position on foreign policy was also a factor to certain segments of political groups which employed this "demographic" controversy to their advantage. Nuff said.
In my opinion, not all "Hollywooders" have experienced O's bright halo shining light on them. I truly believe that many in that arena are afraid to voice their true opinions like Lovitz. They know that any step away from the liberal majority could mean ostracism and loss of futue financial and societal benefits. Kudos to Jon Voight and Clint Eastwood who seem to be far beyond worrying about "punishment" from their peers. I often think that guilt feelings for being so successful and wealthy is another reason why so many support economic policies of the Dems. At least many are big on charity giving financially or with their time....and a big tax deduction as well.
