I am afraid that the Republican Party division is more than merely one between two factions. I was and continue to be a staunch supporter of President George W. Bush. I believe that history will record him as a truly compassionate conservative, a distinctly high honor. I believe he lives happily knowing that he governed morally and effectively. Had opposing factions of the party given him the support he earned by espousing conservative and compassionate programs, we would not now have to cope with a devastating immigration problem. Had the Party supported him when he proposed a solution for easing the cost of public entitlements, we would not be hoping that President Obama will offer such a program tonight. (continued next)

I've said it before and I'll now repeat it. All persons in this country must have a fool-proof ID card on the person at all times. Jail, fine or deport anyone who is found without it.

You forgot the worst of the bunch: Joe Scarborough.
John Hawkins did an injustice to former President G.W Bush in this column and should be ashamed for that. He should apologize. GWB served the country valiantly and with great affection for the nation during his terms in office. He recognized the fact that we had an ongoing serious problem in the Middle East what with an unfinished 20th century war which provided opportunities for evil forces to plot internal physical harm to our nation undetected; and the territory in the region to train their army of terrorists. If Republicans in legislative office had supported him when he offered programs to help find solutions for the problems of immigration and social security, we could have avoided the quandary we now find ourselves in.
Mr. Lambro really did not say anything. I kept reading hoping there was a punch line but I read in vain. The real problem is that the Republican Party does not have an identifiable spokesperson. Many say or write that we need another Ronald Reagan. There was only one, there will never be another. Acknowledge that truth and proceed from there. Like Mr. Lambro, I also did not say anything. Who has an answer?

Some Republicans think that to win over the Latino vote, we must nominate a person of Hispanic origin. The Democrats too will need a new candidate. Remember the young skinny guy who spoke in Boston at the Democratic Convention five years ago? Young, dark-skinned, well spoken; and unknown. He is now in the White House. Remember the 2012 Democratic Convention? A young skinny guy spoke there. Young, dark-skinned, well spoken and unknown. His name: Julian Castro, Mayor of the city of San Antonio. Think.

Republicans seem to be obsessed with the memory of President Reagan. It is silly to think that he can be cloned from the grave. Let any future candidate be himself, express himself, espouse his vision and work hard. See my next comment relative to Carl Thomas article.
