    I've long said that a socially moderate but fiscally conservative party in the image of Goldwater would totally annihilate the Democrats. Few seem to listen though.

    LOL.

    McCain had the weakest, most flawed socialist candidate in the history of the country and he didn't exploit his weaknesses. Ferraro was right when she said the he got to where he was because of his skin color.

    Ayers, Wright, Rezko, Michelle, Khalidi and Pfleger. That is some list of associations that spout poison, or act deviously.

    On some issues McCain couldn't smack Obama because he was as liberal as the most left wing member of the senate. On others he was just plain stupid. His pandering remarks about illegal immigration were offensive to Republicans because they were BS.

    McCain was flawed because he's a lib, but not tragically flawed like Obama.

    That's what Republicans get for letting libs and I's nominate the candidate.

    Now this blarney about Blago-ObamaRhama. McCain's an OK guy but he is politically a lost soul.

    Reagan wasn't socially moderate, and he walked all over the leftists, who are more nutso today than ever.

    They R's need somebody that can articulate conservatism and help rebuild the conservative movement. Bush didn't and isn't a conservative.

    The proof is all the special elections were won by conservatives.

    LOL. Do we have a choice?

    We can fight and educate. That's all we have left.
    That's OK, we learned a huge lesson. Defeat does that.
    We need to rebuild conservatism.

    After Carter came Reagan.
    After Obama... Palin?

    Regardless, Obama will be semi-lame in 24 months as the election cycle gears up to clean up the doo doo that leaked out of Obama's diapers.

    It will be interesting to watch the second coming of Carter... Big teeth, socialist, naive world and economic views. Only difference is skin tone.

    Problem for Libs is the luster of Obama will wear off.
    People will have buyer's remorse.
    We do not take it well being told we are the problem.
    We aren't.
    Government is.
    60 years of socialism to be precise.
    The country still has a conservative soul.
    Tax cuts always appeal, because it is central to Freedom.
    Independence.
    The American Spirit.

    That's why we have greater prospects over the long haul.

    Just think of how you guys won the last elections:
    1. Foley.
    2. Voting for and then pissing on the war.
    3. A candidate with no record, and a hollow message.

    Not the foundation for future domination.
    Reagan built ours. We have to go back to it and explain it.
    "It" being American exceptionalism. Freedom from government. Individual rights.

    Yes, God Forbid a party listen to what the majority of Americans believe... Lets let the small group of people who have it figured out run things... now where have I seen that before...

    Anyways, I read in a sociology book, I believe it was 101, that as moderates and parties move away from each other it allows the more extreme agendas to be set on both sides, left and right... be careful what you wish for. Disassociation with the moderates of society is the cause of the far-left/right controlling our most sacred of offices.

    That is the words of a Liberal and the mainstream drive-by media.

    McCain's version of Conservatism is a Washington insider view of the word. His views were not that much more distinguishable from Obama's. The amusing thing about Obama's campaign is he was sounding just like a Conservative with his populist message about giving 97% of Americans, which is a lie, tax deductions.

    The issue for the Republican Party is to get back on message; limited Government, lower taxes and fiscal responsibility with a strong military for defense and protecting our allies.

    America is not lurching to Socialism. Americans, in their lemming like way as predicted by Osama Bin Laden, have no stomach for war and commitment. This is why any new platform for the Republicans must also include never committing forces for anyone unless it is a direct threat to American lives.

    By the way, this was one of your best posts and very different from stuff I have seen from the past; kudos.
    Rush Much?

    LOL. No one said Reagan was. And if you think that leftists today are more nutso, you clearly need to hit the books. I wonder how you think protests are the same as open terrorism.

    And Reagan was a massive fiscal liberal who promoted dictatorships around the world as well as state sponsored terrorism
