If the Gipper were facing off against Obama: What would Reagan say?
(Page 5 of 5)
And as I leave the city of Tampa to begin the final stages of this campaign, a final word to my fellow Americans.
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.
The time is now, my fellow Americans, to recapture our destiny, to take it into our own hands. But, to do this will take many of us, working together. I ask you tonight to volunteer your help in this cause so we can carry our message throughout the land.
I have thought of something that is not part of my speech and I’m worried over whether I should do it.
Can we doubt that only a Divine Providence placed this land, this island of freedom, here as a refuge for all those people in the world who yearn to breathe freely? Over the centuries this has included Jews and Christians and Muslims, the refugees from Russian pogroms, the Iron Curtain, Nazi Germany, the boat people of Southeast Asia, of Cuba and Haiti, and Latin America, the victims of drought and famine in Africa, the freedom fighters of Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan.
I’ll confess that I’ve been a little afraid to suggest what I’m going to suggest — I’m more afraid not to — that we begin our crusade for 2012 joined together in a moment of silent prayer. (Moment of silence.)
God bless America.
As the inevitable deluge of 2012 begins, perhaps it’s time to pause for a moment and ask:
What would Reagan say?
Then, just as Reagan did, take the gloves off and fight like hell.
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?
