Who IS this guy? I want to vote for him. I want to listen to his show. I want him on his own show on Fox! Bravo! He said everything I've been saying for years!
Actually Progressives made Bush uncool, and Conservatives, like the perpetual high school "Wannabes" joined in on bashing anything Bush and thru him, the GOP. Ironically and sadly, those of us who value loyalty left the GOP tent.. America got Obama not once, but twice. And the blame lands squarely on conservatives and their demand for perfection from politicians of all people. That demand showed more than a lack of realism, it showed a complete lack of maturity. Have they learned their lesson and grown up? I doubt it, they'll keep demanding an Conservative Obama who will ignore the other side and push a conservative agenda forgetting that there are other Americans in this country.
Racism will NEVER go away until the race card is retired. Let us say there are 100 White kids applying for college. 90 do not get in. Of the 90, half may blame the economic status of their family, none will blame the color of their skin. 100 Asian/Oriental kids also apply, again 90 do not make it. Almost all will blame their inability to measure up (not having good enough grades, scores on tests etc.). None will blame the color of their skin. 90 of 100 Blacks don't make it. Almost all will look first to the color of their skin. And THAT is why racism will never end.

Actually the "con" was helped by a Conservative media who joined their Liberal counter part in telling the world how bad Bush and the only other viable party (GOP) was. The voter saw conservatives turn on their own and RAN to a party that at least LIKED their people. Even now conservatives are demanding someone "new and fresh" instead of steady, grown up "establishment " candidate. Haven't we "done that" , "been there", with a new and fresh Obama? The only way that things can change is for America to wise up, it has to begin with Conservatives learning the difference between "brainwashing " and "loyalty " and the knowledge that no one wants to join a group that won't have their back.

Healing The Racial Divide

Want to "heal" the racial divide? REALLY?? Well, let me suggest we start with taking race out of the discussion. Poverty doesn't have a race. It is the result of poor choices; the stupidity of throwing away "first chances". The America of today doesn't "see" the color of a person's skin; it has to be pointed out and frequently is by Blacks and those who never want an equality of races. Let us be honest, "racial divide" is the code word for "give me". ENOUGH, let us be equal already.

Obama Versus America

I find this enormously sad. The Republican In Name Only (aka Libertarians) have only themselves to blame. They spent the last 3 years of the Bush administration DEMANDING a conservative state, forgetting that GW was president of ALL Americans not just those of his party. So they helped the Dems elect a president that was EXACTLY the kind of president they thought Bush should be, not "light" but solidly one sided. And spent the next 6 (going on 8) screaming about a president that did not listen to them, push his party's agenda and gave real AMENSTY. How they treat the next GOP presidential candidate will show if they've learned the difference between brain washing and loyalty. As for getting someone "new", haven't we been there, done that? Now is the time for a grown up, steady, EXPERIENCED executive who can walk the walk, not talk it.
What a lot of Republicans In Name Only (aka LIbertarians pretending to be the base of the Republican party) don't get is that a lot of people LIKE GW. They loved his "cowboy" persona when the world respected America. They appreciated his non-judgmental attitude toward the rest of non-going church people who were just as American as their church attending neighbors. Being a Bush helps Jeb. And if he can convince Condi to run on the ticket...check...and mate. That trillion dollar debt, that illegal immigration over reach, and lack of military respect...that wasn't just Obama's fault, it was the fault of all those who forgot that there can be no principles without loyalty. The "true" conservatives told America that Republicans weren't worthy of their votes and helped a no experience guy who could talk a good talk walk right in the WH and Dems take over Congress. Let's see if they've finally learned their lesson and how much they really love this country.
Let's be fair: conservatives have their share of extremes and media that really should know better. I listened for months as Laura Ingraham complain about her Liberal counterparts attack a "war time" president, only to do so herself when that same war time president nominated someone to the SCOTUS she didn't like, Hugh Hewitt warned his listeners about a law that conservatives pushed in California that tried to deny benefits to illegal children and how after that, Republicans couldn't be elected dog catcher only to join the no "amnesty" group that lost Congress and the WH. Fortunately for America, the majority is neither extremely Left or Right. Voters DO keep both parties in check and rewards the sane people who understands that America belongs to ALL her citizens, not just those who agree with them.

Liberals' Use of Black People

I've always wondered if Blacks realized that when they blame Whites, they give to them the power to decide their fate and their future. How demeaning--and un-American. My kids are neither Black nor White; they are officially "other" and their mixed racial background would allow them to blame a whole host of people. But they understand that their lives are theirs and with power comes responsibility. Blacks will never be "free" until they get that.
