Mr. Neumayr, unsurprisingly, speaks truth when he questions why “rank and file Republicans” should support a party that exists “only to raise a white flag.” I trust Mr. Neumayr implicitly to enlighten and inform me as a California conservative — that’s why I’d like some further analysis.
Arnold didn’t “do” it to the GOP. No, he’s not conservative. But, as Ann Coulter points out this week, he’s not Gray Davis, either.
In my last letter to the Prowler months ago I bemoaned the rise of “Kindergarten Cop” and his new after-school entitlement. I want McClintock — I just don’t know why no one in the party speaks for him, donates to him, promotes him. He has an articulately expressed, common sense plan.
After all, McClintock voted against the budget Senate Minority leader Brulte “negotiated,” raising my car tax in a very un-Republican way; that, after threatening each and every Republican in the legislature with censure and active anti-campaigning should they vote for a budget that — well - raised the car tax. And increased spending last year by more than $2 billion.p>My question, then, Mr. Neumayr — how did we get this way, and how do we fix it? Do we shun Arnold, support the 4%-ers in the polls, then lose to Mr. Bustamante, a genuine leftist with $8 billion in new taxes he’ll admit to? While my boss packs the plant for Arizona? br> — Lee A. Tichenor /p>
So what if Schwarzenegger reaches out to Tinsel Town? Are we to wait for the grassroots populists to figure out who to champion? Don’t hold your breath.
McClintock has better credentials than anybody — but where’s the support?
Ronald Reagan was the people’s candidate. But he damn well didn’t turn down the money and influence of the Hollywood machine.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
