I’d rather see a pit viper with an “R” behind the name than ANYONE OR ANYTHING with a “D.” This is no time to adhere to purity of hypothetical ideals. The reality is, Davis recently won with the message that his opponent is a RIGHT WING REPUBLICAN. Get it? Putting Arnold in charge can ONLY help the GOP, both in CA and its spillover effect on the rest of the nation. Give the guy a break. He has a real chance to win, and maybe to illustrate to the rest of the way left CA electorate that maybe the “R” can be a good thing.
I gaze in wonder upon the ideological purists who would rather lose this election than put in a Republican who doesn’t adhere to the correct litmus tests. The fact is, the Republican organization in California has served as an example of how NOT to do anything. We now have a real opportunity to take control there and change the equation with the only “R” candidate who can win.p>Come on, people. Let’s get behind Arnold, win that election, and build upon that victory in the real world in which all of us live and breathe, as opposed to sabotaging our opportunity to change things in CA because he isn’t a PURE “R.” br> — Craig Wallace br> Boca Raton, FL /p>
I am a registered Republican — have been since I was 21 years old, many years ago. I am getting more and more frustrated by this party. Instead of using money available to put out commercials to vote YES on the recall in California, this party is spending money battling between McClintock and Arnold (sorry, can’t spell his last name). This is sheer stupidity! Why can’t the Republicans be organized, with a plan — like the Democrats. That party has the whole scheme planned out and it seems to be working very well.
This is one Republican family, that in the Spring and Summer of 2004, will be traveling to Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington to find another place to live. We can’t take it here in California anymore! And we are both native Californians. The sooner we are out of here, the better off we will be. I hope other middle-class, fixed income folk do the same.p>We are the population that is hurting the most. I don’t know if any Republican in the U.S. Congress or the California Congress knows what is happening to the people in our situation. My husband and I are angry, frustrated, and ready to call it quits being political activists. Voting is becoming a travesty! In California, if a proposition passes, it is taken to court immediately and overturned by some dumb judge. The voice of the people means absolutely nothing anymore! You can bet your sweet bippy that this family is ANGRY! br> —
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?
