Occasionally something comes along that you feel kinda passionate about. For some that might be a car. For others maybe a sports team or a certain band or singer who sings some crazy tune called " Love Song" ( that is you me).

We all have though, some lil niche or thing that we love to do or participate in. Politics is one of the things I like to dabble in. Listening to music is another of the things that get's me jazzed up. Well back in February these two things were melded together when Radio for Conservatives was born.

A simple brilliant idea that was the brain child of three people Andrew Riley, Elizabeth Crum and Duane Lester. The radio station has talk shows that run the gambit of conservative and libertarian views from hosts across the good ole U.S.A. The music selection is not what the stuffed shirts of the Republican Party of old would probably recommend. The music actually has people playing guitar...and LOUD.

If I may use a term that jumped the shark LONG AGO, it has a different vibe.

Being that they are just a new station and not yet established we need your help. To play the music that is played, royalties and fees must be paid.

So I'm asking two things here today. 1. Tune into and check out the schedule and take a listen to the product that has been put together for the discerning conservative listener.

2. PLEASE DONATE to the station. Just go to the front page of and go to the top of the page to donate. Any amount is greatly appreciated $1, $5, $10 whatever you feel you can afford. The liberal media is out to knock our blocks off and people like George Soros and his ilk would like to see us all have kidney failure just like Wanda Sykes hoped for Rush. You can help stem this tide by keeping a homegrown conservative grassroots radio station on the AIR.

I thank you in advance and wish you a GREAT damn day!!!

Gove Kennedy errrrr Schwarzenegger learns his lesson. Maybe

The People of Caliiiiiifornia have spoken.

They don't like the idea of their taxes going up anymore than they are currently. Who can blame them? The unemployment rate in the state is now hovering above 11% the current tax burden of the people of the left coast is higher than most other states and they are currently running a projected 21 billion dollar deficit.

Thank God they have Gov Arnie Terminator to ride in to save the day right?
From RTT news.........

In responding to the results, California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who had been a strong proponent of all six measures, said, "Tonight, we have heard from the voters, and I respect the will of the people who are frustrated with the dysfunction in our budget system."

"We face a staggering $21.3 billion deficit," he added, "and in order to prevent a fiscal disaster, Democrats and Republicans must collaborate and work together to address this shortfall. The longer we wait, the worse the problem becomes and the more limited our choices will be."

Sounds great. Only problem is Gov Meat Head here is one of the problems. His idea of compromise has been spend more money and than the state is taking in and borrow from the future.Sounds like a lil city out east on the Potomac that is doing the same things eh?

Which means that the majority of the compromise proposals he speaks of doing and has done have been more of the same liberal spend and burn tactics that have failed in the past. If Gov Kennedy had not lost that spine of his when he gave up his Hummer and and put his foot down on spending, maybe people were not be fleeing California like the " BIG ONE" just hit.

This is a prime example of what happens when the politician has a R after his name but it should be a D. Hopefully other Republicans are looking and learning the lessons from Gov girly man!!!

It's offical were broke, or something close to that

Don't you believe it. Don't you believe it at all. The government has given a report that says Social Security and Medicare are going broke faster than expected.

So am I saying don't believe that they are going broke? No. I'm saying don't believe their report in terms of years, it will be sooner. From Washington AP...

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Social Security and Medicare are fading even faster under the weight of the recession, heading for insolvency years sooner than previously expected, the government warned Tuesday. Social Security will start paying out more in benefits than it collects in taxes in 2016, a year sooner than projected last year, and the giant trust fund will be depleted by 2037, four years sooner, trustees reported.

The Federal government has constantly revised their numbers DOWNWARD for when it goes cash negative since the last major overhaul of the Social Security trust fund was done in 1983. This whole damn thing has been a ponzi scheme for years and those of us who are still in our 30's will NEVER receive the full benefits that we are owed from the system. If you don't believe me, read this oh so cheerful article from the people in the know over at the Heritage Foundation.

But than again maybe I'm just being negative, I'm sure we could just print more money like President Obama is doing now. I'm sure that will work ......right?!?!?!

Fancy Nancy on lying,hating the CIA, George Bush and pissing off Hitler

So Nancy Pelosi goes out in front of the camera's and reporters yesterday and tells another version of what she knew and when she knew it. She upped the ante though when she accused the CIA of not only lying to her but in general lying to the congress as a whole.

OOPS. That was probably a mistake. I mean unless of course they actually have lied. If that were the case though I think the members of Congress who were lied to would have had the agency and those who had lied dragged through the public wringer of humiliation. Especially being that lying to a member of Congress is against the law and members have big enough ego's that they would not put up with being lied to.

Nancy has put herself into this position because she didn't want the heat from the loons on the left who think playing Ted Nugent songs at all hours in a terrorist cell in Club Gitmo is torture. She has tried to play both sides of the fence saying that she was ALWAYS against the Bush Admin policies of waterboarding when the record is coming out that she was not. Now she has accused said agency that is in charge of said technique of lying to her about when she was told and who told her. I can only imagine how she will try to spin this one on the Evil Bush Admin

She is in deep poo poo now. This is akin to telling the IRS that they suck on national TV. IF you do that how long before you think you get a audit? The CIA is mailing out more notes taken on this to reporters probably as we speak JUST in time for the Sun morning news programs.

Meanwhile Republicans are smelling blood and are trying to find a way not to blow this. Let's hope they get their act together and push this loon out of the top spot in the house.

To watch one Republican who so far has nailed Fancy Nancy ,here is Sen Kit Bond from MO. Skip ahead to the 6:45 minute mark for the money qoute that brings down the house

Also from the streets of Washington to the Bunkers of Berlin...Nancy Pelosi can get people MAD. Even dead dictators

Meltdown ( or not??) with Keith Olberman

So I'm minding my own business today surfing through the "internets" when I come across a juicy lil gem of a story about my all time favorite journalist hack...Keith Olberman.

From City Life New York....

If you regularly tune in to Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC, you may remember that Olbermann was mysteriously absent from the show for three days at the end of April. But Olbermann didn't just "have the night off," as David Shuster, his fill-in, said on the air three evenings in a row. According to a source inside MSNBC, it was a bizarre temper tantrum on Olbermann's part that led him to storm off the set in protest. Even stranger: The drama was all Ben Affleck's fault.

It seems our lil slugger was a lil perturbed that Bob Costas....errr Rachel Maddow booked a certain Guest that Olby wanted.

Ben Affleck.

When Keith threw his considerable weight around which is mostly his ego and DEMANDED that Matt Damon's best friend ( Ben Affleck) do his show instead of Rachel's and was denied he stormed out of MSNBC and pouted for 3 days.Thank the stars he's not really a journalist or he might have gone on a hunger strike.

All was right in my world, but alas the plot thickens. City life called MSNBC for a response to the story that they had. When they first went to post they had received no response from MSNBC. Than Olby got wind of the story and this is what the not so great one said....

Olbermann has issued an official statement on the matter: "That was my first opportunity to take even a long weekend to mourn my mother's death and deal with the many sad logistics subsequent to her sudden passing. The source of this story is a liar and those who spread it without seeking confirmation or reputation are beneath contempt."

WOW, all of a sudden I felt kinda bad. I'm sure through all that hate filled rhetoric that Keith spews everyday, he must have a heart and be mourning his Mom right? Hopefully?

One can never truly know what is in another's heart. If I'm betting though........I bet Rachel Maddow is the unnamed source for this story.

GPS was not made for this was it?

From the George Orwell, 1984 is really here file.

The Chicago Tribune had this little gem last week......

MADISON, Wis. - Wisconsin police can attach GPS to cars to secretly track anybody's movements without obtaining search warrants, an appeals court ruled Thursday.

However, the District 4 Court of Appeals said it was "more than a little troubled" by that conclusion and asked Wisconsin lawmakers to regulate GPS use to protect against abuse by police and private individuals.

As the law currently stands, the court said police can mount GPS on cars to track people without violating their constitutional rights -- even if the drivers aren't suspects.

Attaching GPS devices without a search warrant. What country do I live in again? This is such a abuse of power I can't even find the damn words for it.

Hopefully some tech wiz will find a way to make a device to block the signal and send the cops off chasing their own tails. I'm not for breaking the law mind you but doing this without a search warrant is such a gross abuse of power I'm surprised the press hasn't blasted this all over.

Ok I'm not surprised!!!

California dreaming of bankruptcy and Michigan may follow

The warning has been sounded.

The state of California is going broke and if we in Michigan don't do something quick we are going to be right behind it. The article I have linked to below from the Blog Prof via our friends over at is a very interesting article about the looming crisis in California of running about 23 billion short in their budget and what they will do to scare the public.

Click to read The Blog Prof right here.

Now a lot of what the politicians in Cali will propose I'm sure the Michigan pols will try to do and scare the public.

I find it not a coincidence that California has the highest paid state legislature and Michigan is the second highest in the nation. Both states are in huge fiscal trouble.

Some might say that Michigan is easy to figure out because of the trouble in the automotive industry. Or the weather is nicer in 20 other states. Why is California in trouble than? California has a highly educated work force, beautiful weather in most of the state and has always been a destination state to live and visit.

The answer is because both state legislatures and Governors are tax and spend junkies. Which goes to show that a Republican and Democrat Governor can fail equally as bad. Bad policies can transcend either party and destroy the business climate and quality of life for it's citizens.

Hopefully we in Michigan learn from our fellow state out to the west and correct the mistakes we have made and not follow California into the abyss.

Code Pink...Every day putting the ASS in CLASS

From one of my new fav blogs a lil story about the Code Pink haggies getting all riled up on Mommies day. I really hope to go to one of these code pink rallies one day dressed up as a degenerate and start yelling some dumb ass slogan that they won't be able to figure out for year's.

That's just how I roll

Image over substance...President Barack Obama

This article from Friday's Wall St Journal shows why The President of the United States should be more interested in results than image. This administration is concerned how they are perceived in the world and not if people who are truly evil are kept behind bars. The war on terror cannot be fought in a U.S. courtroom, it can only be waged on the enemy's soil. Military tribunals NOT the U.S. court system are the way to handle these thugs.

Hopefully the President will realize this before another attack on American interests by one of these terrorists takes place.

Detroit has a new Mayor

Kinda hope this is the change we were promised by some politicians in the last election.

Dave Bing won the special election last Tues to fill out the remainder of everyone's favorite hip hop mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Today he will be sworn in as Detroit's new Mayor. He won't have much time to settle in though being the next election is in November but I hope this is a new start for my hometown.

Arlen Specter for the Cure...or maybe not

It's official, Arlen Specter is a total Jackass. Most people in the Republican party knew this but now the Dem's get a up close look at this ass.

From Politico......

Sen. Arlen Specter’s campaign team has changed the layout of its Web site to make it clear that the site is aimed at promoting Specter’s reelection to the Senate.

The move follows criticism that the site – and Specter’s description of it on “Meet the Press” and “Face the Nation” last week – could leave visitors confused into thinking it was raising money to promote medical research.

As POLITICO reported earlier this week, visitors to the earlier version of the site were greeted with a banner promising “A Giant Leap in Turning Cancer into Cures.” While the homepage of most campaign websites feature a photo of the candidate, this one offered a picture of a woman with red tape over her mouth. The caption: “Red tape leaves medical research gasping for breath. It’s time we let loose the winds of a cure.”

The only reason he bailed the Republican party was to save his ass in the senate race next year. Great principal Senator.

He accused the Rep party in a backhanded way of being responsible for Jack Kemp's death. Nice form Arlen.

And now setting up your re-election site to mislead people to think it's a cancer fundraising site. You are the creme ala creme of slimy politicians Mr Specter.

I hope Pennsylvania in 2010 sees you for what you truly are.

Is anyone noticing a pattern here?

Nancy is just all discombobulated about what she knew and when she alleges she didn't know it. I don't know if anyone else is noticing a pattern here.

Air Force Jets..... " We never made any special requests"

OOOOPS you lied about that didn't ya

Than Nancy the Theologian, lied about Catholic doctrine on when the debate " Ended " on when human life begins.

Ahhhh just minor things you say?

Well now she is graduating up to the really big leagues on lying.This time about when she knew the CIA was gonna waterboard those fuzzy terrorist members that Nancy and her ilk love so well.

But finally someone from my home state is getting something right. Rep Pete Hoekstra is calling for all the memos to be released on who in Congress was told what and when.

From the Hill via Sister Toldjah's blog site ......

Rep. Pete Hoekstra (Mich.), the top Republican on House Intelligence, in an interview Friday said the document proves that Pelosi knew waterboarding occurred but has denied is because of political pressure from the liberal base of her party.

“Clearly her left wing is outraged that waterboarding was used,” Hoekstra said. “The bottom line is she and her key staff, they all knew about it.”

So what is the big deal you say? The woman is a pathological liar. One who would sell out the interests of this country to gain a lil political advantage. You can have a honest debate about interrogation methods all day long, but to LIE and say she was never told about this by America's intelligence organizations to save face with the NUTBAGS on the left is despicable.

And while I won't be as warm and fuzzy as Wanda Sykes was at last night's Press correspondence dinner talking about someone she doesn't like and hope your kidney's fail and you die Ms Pelosi, I will say this.

I hope your face falls off after those botox injections wear off. I know you have a spare one laying around being you are a two faced back stabbing politician of the worst kind.

Another fine example of a American Solider

I don't care how many times you watch this, if you don't get a lump in your throat you aren't a human with a soul.

That's not OPINION either that's just a damn FACT.

Another example of the courageous spirit that each and every one of the men and women who wear our country's uniform have. The next time you see one of these heroes make sure to thank them, it only takes a minute and it's the least you can do.

Lies are hard to keep straight, Just ask Nancy Pelosi

Someone SHOULD be in trouble for this.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has recently denied that she knew of the water boarding or any other EIT ( enhanced interrogation techniques) done to the those fuzzy Islamic terrorists currently vacationing down at Guantanamo Bay , Cuba.

Uh Oh. That might not be entirely true.

In fact according to former house member and CIA chief Porter Goss it is a flat out lie. From Mr Goss's letter to theWashington Post last Sat.....

Today, I am slack-jawed to read that members claim to have not understood that the techniques on which they were briefed were to actually be employed; or that specific techniques such as "waterboarding" were never mentioned. It must be hard for most Americans of common sense to imagine how a member of Congress can forget being told about the interrogations of Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed. In that case, though, perhaps it is not amnesia but political expedience.

OOOOOPS, sounds like someone should have some splanin to do.

Of course Speaker of the world Nancy Pelosi knew about this and wholeheartedly approved. She never dreamed of the day where she would be in the position she is and have to backpedal on being rough to terrorists or nice to them.

I'm not shocked though. This is the same woman who famously said in late 2008 on Meet The Press that the Catholic Church had only RECENTLY made a firm decision on abortion.I'm sure Pope Benedict XVI did not bring that up at their meeting earlier this year because the Speaker is so much more knowledgeable on church doctrine than he.

I truly hope that some in the media start to put the screws to this louse and start to speed her exit from the national scene. The nation needs more HONEST leadership right now.

Need to raise money in the state that leads in Unemployment..RAISE TAXES

Oh boy.

Just when you thought maybe Gov Granholm had maybe studied her economic theory book a little and MAYBE had learned a lesson about tax increases a warning comes from Michigan State Senator Michelle McManus via our friends over at

In the coming weeks and months, you will hear our governor yet again make dire statements about Michigan's financial woes and how state government is slipping further and further into the red. She is even talking about tinkering with the income tax. Anyone else think that sounds like Democrat-speak for raising taxes? Be ready.

I read her warning three times to let it sink in. I personally think their is no way that this Governor could possible propose ANY TAX INCREASE of any kind. I also thought that she would be a mildly bad Governor. She proved me wrong there by being a terrible Governor beyond my wildest dreams.If Senator McManus is hearing some chatter in Lansing about a tax increase I'm glad she is sounding the alarm so that we can BE READY.

If one penny more is proposed to be raised on the backs of the citizens and the business left in this state in tax increases, I would hope all of us that still care about Michigan would turn out in greater numbers than we did at the TEA party and let our elected representatives know that it is not ACCEPTABLE.

I'm going to go bang my head into a wall now!!!

Happy Birhtday Dad

In a small lil village called Detroit on May 6, 1937 my Dad, Edward George LaDuke was born. Today he would have been 72 yrs of age. On Feb 19 1995 he passed away from a massive heart attack and my life changed forever.

I used to get real shitty about the Feb 19 th day every year. I guess you can't help it at first, but a couple of years ago I started to focus more on his birthday and less on the day the Lord called him home. I had waddled for too long in the despair of what if's and why's that I will never be able to answer.Plus it's not the way he would have wanted to be remembered. Not to dwell on the way he died but what he gave us for when he lived.

I usually would have kept all this bottled up but the one thing I have learned as I have grown older is that if you keep everything bottled up, you soon will explode.

I don't think of my Dad every single minute of every day but inevitably 7 ,10, 30 times through out the day something will pop up and it will link me back to him just for a second. Even on my most shit filled day at least for a moment I will grin & relax. I kinda like to think it's his way of saying " Hey , it could be a lot worse".

My Dad was the one who introduced me to the world of politics. I would sit and watch the evening news with him and listen to the political discussions with my Mom in the living room as a child. Because of my Dad's strong views as a baby I was dubbed the Republican. But as I grew up and listened to him he always stressed that you " vote for the person not the party."

He was so right.

When I joined the Republican party in 1990 he told me to prepare to be disappointed and not to waiver from what I believed. When President Bush 41 broke his no new taxes pledge and I was told by members in the Rep party to be a good party member and not criticize I told them I was a good American first and left the organization before the 1992 election. I never told my Dad that but I hope he would have been happy I took his advice.

I still salute the flag every once in a while just like he taught me when I was 3.

I'm still in absolute AWE of the men and women who serve this country every day in the armed forces just as he served. On many more occasions than I can count, he made sure I understood that these people serve this country to allow us to do what we choose to do every single day, and the least we can do is thank them whenever we see them.

I'm still a Lions fan even though he told me it would never change in his lifetime or mine that they suck. I still remember the times sitting on the couch and watching those football games with him and both of us shaking our heads.

My Dad was born in Detroit and lived there until he and my Mom were married in the late 60's. He didn't agree with what was happening in the city but he loved that city. I can recall a time he called a talk show about the debate at the time of whether Joe Louis Arena should be named after the great boxer or someone else. Dad launched into a story about what Louis meant not only to the black community in a segregated country at the time but what he meant to the whole USA at the time he beat the German champ Max Schmelling before WWII broke out. " He was not only a great person who was black but a GREAT American" I have never forgotten that.

In 1999 the Tigers moved from Tiger stadium to their new home in Comerica park. I never was able to see a game with Dad at the ole ballpark, but he used to tell stories about going their as a kid and with his 3 older brothers at different times in his life.
I went to at least 20 to 25 games that final season just walking around imagining the old stories coming to life in my mind in the place that they had happened so long ago. At the final game there, I walked around for almost a hour and a half after the festivities not wanting to let go of a place he had loved so much. When they finally kicked me out, I felt as though he was taken away again from me in some sort of weird way.

He wasn't though. Since my Dad has physically passed he has been in my heart and mind and he has never left.

I know I can't physically talk to him about the last historic election or the Tigers getting to the series again in 2006. We can't laugh about how bad the Lions sucked last year or watch him tease his two granddaughters like he would have loved to do.

But he is here, and it took me a while to realize that. I am blessed to have had him as a Father and I'm even more blessed that I have my Mom still, my sister and brother, extended family and friends and my nieces who I try to tease in the place of my Dad.

So I ask anyone who reads this take a moment each day and appreciate those that YOU have that are still here with you and keep making those memories that will last a lifetime. Share a laugh, a beer or just a hello. Always let them know that they are important to you.

You never do know when the Lord will call you home!!!

Duke over America's " CAPTION THIS"

( President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are served their burgers as they make an unannounced visit to Ray's Hell Burger in Arlington, Va., to have lunch, Tuesday, May 5, 2009. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)

The President and Crazy Joe went off for a bite to eat today at a local restaurant and " surprised" the local patrons when they dropped in for a bite to eat.

This was " BREAKING NEWS" on MSNBC, I KID YOU NOT. Andrea Mitchell broke the news to the 15 people watching that the President was informed they were out of fries so he had to have potato puffs.

I'm sure they will be closed next week for this injustice.

I think the picture is priceless so if anyone has a caption please send it along. Being I'm hiding all my wealth from the Obama currency detectors I can't offer a monetary prize but I will publish the best ones in a future blog!!!!

President Hope and Change dumps on the Tea Parties

I know I'm getting to this one lil story a lil late but that is what one week in VEGAS will do to ya.

Last week the President of the United States made his most direct comment about those Tea party protests that sprung up a couple of weeks ago that he knew nothing about in advance.........

Those of you who are watching certain news channels on which I'm not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around, Obama said, “let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we are going to stabilize Social Security.”

First off, if he is referring to FOX news they love you Mr President as I'm sure is borne out by the ratings lead they have over CNN and MSNBC.

Second, stop acting as though a plan you implemented is going to create anything but stagflation and devaluation of the U.S. dollar. If this is not so please cite one example of massive SPENDING and BORROWING and PRINTING of money on a never seen before scale has worked.

I'll wait right here........................................................

Thought so.

As for Social Security , the last shot we had at saving that was in 2005 when Pres Bush attempted something but his own party ran under the covers and hid. Just kiss SS goodbye people. The numbers will never line up, no matter how many times you erase them and try again with your etch-a-sketch calculator.

Just please keep the country safe in the meantime Mr President. Hopefully we can start to elect some adults with vision and guts and not so much style with no substance beginning in 2010!!!

This other Mccain just kicked a lil ASS

I'm still a young pup at this here blogging thing. I have only been writing on this site for about 8 months or so. I try to read as many things on both the left and right and some down the center as I can.

One of the people I have read for the past couple of months is Robert Stacy Mccain. He is able to blend information into a style of writing that is not to taxing to read ( I.E. FRICKING BORING).

His latest post is a brilliant read that touches on 7 or 8 different topics and makes you feels as if you were just on a roller coaster of knowledge. His post is a lil like a Dennis Miller rant but on some really strong anabolic steroids. I highly suggest you give it a look.

I hope to write like him when I grow up or sober up whichever comes first!!!!

Unemployment in Michigan is a new industry!!!!!

Here at Duke over America we mostly like to talk about the national and world issues that are taking a hold of the current day's events. Occasionally though we love to turn home and comment on the lunacy that is Detroit City council and Monica Conyers or the abject failure that Governor Jennifer Granholm has been.

Today we focus on Governor Granholm. From the Detroit News on Thurs April 30,2009....

The hole in Michigan's recession-battered budget has nearly doubled to $1.32 billion.

State officials said the deficit -- estimated at $785 million a couple weeks ago -- has increased by half; likely meaning that more federal stimulus money will be needed to balance the books or deeper cuts will have to be made than anticipated only days ago.

WOW, the Governor is blowing us away at a clip that she could not even have imagined. Whenever you double your projected budget deficit in just a couple of weeks you are really working on making history. Not in a good way either.

Governor Granholm's administration has never really been much on substance but more on style. She has now run up against the harsh reality of that lack of substance, the budget MUST BE CUT. The stimulus money will be used I'm sure, but if the legislatures in Lansing want to make this right they should CUT at least 75% of the projected deficit out of the current budget instead of using the stimulus for a one time fix. Granholm has done this before and it has done nothing to prepare this state for the inevitable which we now face. The one time fixes of the Gimmick Governor have to end and the realities of the new Michigan must begin TODAY.

While you kids are at it in Lansing why not try something that the Governor has toyed with that has brought interest to the state. TAX CUTS across the board for individuals and companies instead of targeting them just for the film or some other pet project industry.

If you do that and the Gimmick Governor were to sign such a bill, at least she could leave Michigan next year on the path to recovery, instead of the complete ruin she seems hell bent on achieving.

And while the State BURNS... Lt Governor John Cherry prepares to run for the seat his boss has so aptly destroyed.

From our Friends at a lil video showing how serious our FRIENDS on the D side of the aisle take this problem.

Hope they didn't water down the punch folks!!!!

Time to leave Reagan behind so say a BUSH and a SPECTER

Let's file these two stories under the " Ahhhh this is why I left the Republican party category"

First off we have former Governor Jeb Bush of Florida saying it's time to leave the Reagan era behind. Jeb had this to say.......

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said Saturday that it's time for the Republican Party to give up its "nostalgia" for the heyday of the Reagan era and look forward, even if it means stealing the winning strategy deployed by Democrats in the 2008 election.

"You can't beat something with nothing, and the other side has something. I don't like it, but they have it, and we have to be respectful and mindful of that," Mr. Bush said.

I wonder if what the other side had was the name George W Bush to run against for all ills imagined and real.

He followed up with this....

"From the conservative side, it's time for us to listen first, to learn a little bit, to upgrade our message a little bit, to not be nostalgic about the past because, you know, things do ebb and flow."

I hope on this listening tour they really do listen. With all due respect to the former Governor the reason why the Republicans got clobbered with Hope and Change was because another guy named Bush was the sitting President and was perceived to FUBAR everything up for the past 8 years.

Candidate Bush RAN on the Reagan mantra of tax cuts and LOWER spending. President Bush on the other hand did lower taxes but increased spending way beyond the increases of tax revenues and thus caused some pretty healthy deficits. He spent like a democrat and the people decided why not just elect a democrat.

I really don't get what the hell these party leaders are looking at. John Mccain was a MODERATE Republican on most issues. He was WIPED off the face of the electoral map. When one of these Guys can win a 1984 LANDSLIDE type election like Reagan did I will put stock in forgetting the principals that Reagan stood for, until than stop with this forget Reagan talk.

Sen Arlen Specter pops on on the weakest of the Sunday talk shows now to blow these bubbles of wisdom at David Gregory on the state of the Republican party.....

“There’s more than being reelected here. There’s the factor of principle. The Republican Party has gone far to the right since I joined it under Reagan’s big tent. … In recent times, I have diverged materially from the Republican line … As the picture has evolved, I felt a lot more comfortable — as a matter of principle — with Democrats than Republicans.”

President Reagan had a " BIG TENT"? My Lord, from what I remember of what the democrats and libs like Specter used to say about Reagan he was the cause of every damn ill the world had ever known. AIDS, CANCER, HOMELESSNESS, that big mark on Mikael Gorbachev head.

This of course is just a smoke screen, he was gonna get his ASS handed to him in the GOP primary and his self worth only is validated if he is a Senator.He had to switch parties for a shot at retaining the only thing that matters to him. How pathetic!!!! If he was anywhere near as honorable as he says he is why not resign the seat ala Phil Graham from Texas in 1983 and run again as a democrat?

Because this man has not a shred of decency left in him. I really hope the people of Pennsylvania throw this spineless fool out on his ear and that he may spend the rest of his days pondering all the havoc he has brought upon this country he so claims to love.
