He was the figure that defined presidential weakness, misguided intentions, and inept foreign policy. Jimmy Carter was a hard-left Liberal in most aspects of his governance and American suffered for it.
President Reagan’s goal was nothing short of dismantling the Iron Curtain and the Soviet empire. As he said himself, his goal in the Cold War was to ensure that “we win, they lose.”
Ted Cruz (R-TX), has distinguished himself from Paul by adopting Reagan’s foreign policy principles while exposing Paul as the neo-isolationist that he is, the Kentucky Senator is desperate to defend himself.
Rather, I remember how Reagan treated my daughter, Erin. I kept her home from school one day, to go with me to a farewell party (a couple of dozen people attending), honoring a friend when he left Reagan’s White House in the mid-1980s.
Arland could have tied the rope around himself as it dangled near him, but time and again, he passed the rope to another passenger who was still alive.
One of the most endearing parallels between Romney and Reagan are their beautiful marriages. Ronnie and Nancy were forever sweethearts. Like them, Mitt and Ann would be content in a cabin in Wyoming in the dead of winter with a fire and a freezer full of moose enchiladas if they could spend that time together. Theirs is exemplary love, the American model of old-fashioned courtship and marriage. That quality alone is the solution to many of our social and economic ills if more people would adopt it into their lives and value it the way the Reagans and the Romneys do.
I call that a miracle. It captures the American spirit like nothing I’ve heard of in a while. If Tom can resurrect his animation career like he did, we conservatives can certainly lift ourselves from the disappointing morass of Thursday’s Supreme Court decision and take back the White House (and Senate) in November. Do me a favor and think about Tom’s story as we go forward. Yes, sometimes changing from right to left can be a beautiful thing.
Obama stands in opposition to the substance of men who had true grit, the tough justice that won the freedom of people on the American continent as well as distant shores and many lands.
It’s nearly 20 years since Gennifer Flowers (and perhaps scores of abused women) would be summarily crushed by Bill Clinton and his sausage grinder political machine, and the culture war is reaching a fever pitch
Who will be the greatest American President of the 21st century? No one yet knows. But whoever it is they must defeat Barak Obama in 2012.
