First, Kudos. A nice set of objectives. I would only observe that maybe these should be the objectives of all Americans and not just the Republicans. “Let’s Stand for Something” even makes a great bumper sticker. And I close with a couple of questions:
* You have stated the goals. When do you intend to announce your run for the Presidency?
* Will you consider Rice for VP?p>* Where do I send the campaign check? br> — John McGinnis br> Arlington, Texas /p>
Ben, as usual, is right on. Shortly after losing the 2004 elections and recognizing that they failed to connect with the “values” voters, Democrat leaders vowed to reach out to them. Unfortunately, their strategy consisted of merely using rhetoric with a veneer of evangelical terminology with no intent of altering their liberal policies. I noted at the time that this sham would probably not fool anyone. Now they once again have shown their contempt for conservatives, especially evangelical conservatives, by their smug and arrogant assumption that this important minority can be swayed by their less than clever attempts to manipulate words and pretending to get along with them. It is what I have come to expect from this cabal of leftists.

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?
