The Rogue, on the Record by Rich Lowry and Robert Costa on National Review Online

The Rogue, on the Record by Rich Lowry and Robert Costa on National Review Online

Make no mistake about it, Sarah Palin is THE Republican/conservative super star. The Democrats hate her for what she stands for and the elite Republicans envy her for her stardom. And that description reminds me a lot of Reagan. Jim

What would you expect from a Muslim loving administration. This is an insult to every loyal American and especially to our brave men and women who serve in our armed forces. Jim

Anthony R. Dolan: The Power of Reagan's Berlin Wall Speech - WSJ.com

Anthony R. Dolan: The Power of Reagan's Berlin Wall Speech - WSJ.com

Ronald Reagan was an inspiration and perhaps the greatest President of the 20th Century. After all he did bring down the "evil empire" and much to the chagrin of the elitists in both political parties. Obama should read a couple of biographies on Reagan. Maybe the reading of Reagan will install in him a hint of courage. Jim

Gwyeth T. Smith Jr. - Gwyeth T. Smith Jr.: Delaying college for a year benefits students - washingtonpost.com

Interesting article---certainly worth reading. Colleges are over priced. A middle class kid like I was can't work their way through college any more. Now the name of the game is debt, debt and more debt. Frankly, a lot of plumbers make more money that a lot of lawyers.

We may be facing an economy entirely run by the federal government. Remember this--"government can't run anything and it always lies". Hello to "America, a collection of socialist states". Jim

Sane campaigns usually win. I am a conservative--to the core--but as Vince Lombardi once said, "winning isn't everything, it's the only thing". Vince was a damn smart guy. Jim

PostPartisan - How Obama is aiding Ahmadinejad

Of course Obama supports the savages who currently rule Iran. He's also cheering for the thug in Syria and the criminals who call themselves Hamas. They are all 15th century savages---and that includes Obama. Jim

Ed Gillespie - The GOP's Ed Gillespie on election lessons from Virginia - washingtonpost.com

Ed Gillespie is a Washington insider who is still sane. While I can disagree with some of his comments around the edges, what he says is mostly right. The best part of the column is his emphasis on recruiting strong candidates with the candidate using rhetoric that the listener can identify with. This column is worth reading. Jim

GOP wins in NJ and VA - WSJ.com

GOP wins in NJ and VA - WSJ.com

This is a good analysis of yesterday's elections. The GOP wins in 2010 if they run good candidates espousing conservative economic issues. As James Carville famously said during the 1992 Presidential election, "it's the economy, stupid". Republicans should tattoo those four words on their up and down both arms. Jim

And it's even worse than the WSJ says. Thanks to Nancy Bimbosi, Bam Bam Obama and Dirty Little Harry we're getting the worst of all results. Unfortunately the Republicans have been neutered and they're licking their wounds. Jim

I wish the Las Vegas Unified School District would recruit Michele Rhee to be the Superintendent here in Las Vegas. I wouldn't expect a Washington D.C.
