hey there Jonathan... I couldn't agree with you more.... the Republicans haven't had a large enough majority to get things done in a meaningful way.... but I think that day will be coming... I believe the mid term elections will give b oth houses back to the republicans... and Obama will be totally crippled. As a result the markets will react in a positive way... but it still won't be enough to get O re-elected. Of course we will be paying for O's mistakes for years and years to come.
I think what we need is a republican that will come out and talk directly to the American people and completely circumvent the main stream media.... much like Reagan did. Honestly I think Palin would be the best candidate to do just that. She has an appeal to the American people and I believe she would steam roll right past the reporters, networks, news papers and magazines and make her point directly to the people.

Brian, I agree with you regarding "the Republicans not having a large enough majority to get things done in a meaningful way" We will be paying for generations to come for what Obama and the Democrates have done. While I find Palin a breath of fresh air and a force to be reconed with; I do not see her being ready for 2012. I do see her facilitating the road to getting us there.

Hey Dirty... there's just one problem with your logic there. No one here said YOU'RE ALL THAT UNION GUY. (At least not in my reading... unless I missed it somewhere - entirely possible). But I haven't seen anyone say that.
Here's the weird thing Dirty Hippie Man... you guys ALWAYS have to exaggerate what we say or stretch it or twist it into something we didn't actually say in order to find an argument with us.
It always makes me wonder - if you have to make up something we didn't say - in order to find an argument, then maybe you agree with us in the first place, no!?

Peggy, I agree with you on Palin... unfortunately. She has great raw talent but she needs a lot of polishing up. I wish her well and hope maybe she can do it. My personal choice is Giuliani. I saw him govern this ultra-liberal city and he was AMAZING. He was super tough - he never backed down in fear from all the intimidating liberals. Can you imagine being Giuliani and your home town paper is the NEW YORK TIMES!? He knows how to go over their heads. And that's why I think he'd be so awesome as a Republican candidate. If only he'd just decide to run!
