George W. Bush
A free pass to American citizenship, an American taxpayer-funded education and healthcare and all the privileges and benefits of living in this country legally are about the biggest incentive for coming here illegally that you could offer to people living in Central America, China and other major sources of illegal border crossers.
Obama’s policy makers like President George W. Bush’s before them have failed to grasp the real lesson we should have learned from the rise of the Taliban and al Qaeda in Afghanistan. The enemy is not a nation state or a government, but the idea of Islamic supremacy deeply ingrained in Muslim culture.
Much of the Muslim world is aflame and U.S. policy bears much of the blame. Washington’s relentless attempt to reorder and reshape complex peoples, distant places, and volatile disputes has backfired spectacularly.
It is long past time for our leaders to tell Americans the truth about the war we are in -- the war the radical Islamist jihadis declared on us -- and to mobilize the full weight of our national power and culture for the battles to come.
This is about winning a war and in war incompetence of this magnitude verges on treason. Losing the CIA Station Chief in Afghanistan because his cover has been blown by the Obama White house deprives the US of one our most experienced and valuable assets in the still hot war in one of the major centers of radical Islam.
After fifty years, American skepticism of the Great Society and the big government it created have never been stronger, and the embrace of the Great Society’s big spending and big government by the Republican establishment has never been tighter.

Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint is the de facto leader of the conservative movement because he understands that, while the establishment media and big-government Republicans have done a good job of blaming conservatives for Republican losses, the reality is voters consistently reject big-government, content-free Republicans. The GOP only wins when it draws a clear contrast with the secular liberal big government worldview of the Democrats.
Richard Viguerie's new book TAKEOVER covers Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, William F. Buckley, M. Stanton Evans and Ronald Reagan. He blasts the GOP Estab., The Bushes and consultants, just to name a few. The author is ready to rumble as “civil war” and division rattle the GOP.

In my new book TAKEOVER I knock down the myth of Ronald Reagan's so-called 11th Commandment and show how Reagan took all the discontents within the Republican Party to build a new majority coalition and defeat the “dime store Democrat” leadership of the Republican establishment.
This is not the first time Peter Wehner, Karl Rove’s lackey, has bashed Sarah Palin, but it is the most clear-cut example of an out-of-touch elitist Republican Party snobbery that is turning off voters.
If Tea Party activists are unable to make clear policy demands, then GOP pres. candidates will hire the same old GOP advisers who'll use tired old proposals. A more pragmatic Tea Party movement is still the best hope for limited gov't supporters who want to prevent the GOP from going back to its Bush-era embrace of big gov't.
Common Core lesson plans attack Ronald Reagan, list Abraham Lincoln's religion as 'liberal,' and suggest the 2000 election of George W. Bush was "unfair."
A GOP resolution that renounces NSA spying is an extraordinary document. For over a decade, the GOP dismissed civil-libertarian complaints about the War on Terror. Now the RNC is changing its tune to join the anti-spying chorus, but Bushies are pushing back.
Obama is still blaming Bush for his NSA woes (among other things). But it's time that Congress step up and do their job of keeping executive powers in check.
Google search is an unforgiving mistress, says James V. DeLong and Ed Gillespie's connections with the business establishment, which supports ObamaCare, the immigration cave-in, infrastructure pork, and Common Core, will provide rich themes for attacks from Democrats and questions from limited government constitutional conservatives.
Citing a new survey by a GOP pollster, Boehner told Repubs. that the administration had reached a “turning point” after five years in which Obama had successfully blamed Bush for the US’s economic woes. Repubs, he argued, now have the upper hand when it comes to the economy.
George P. Bush, Jeb's son, is running for Texas' little-known but powerful land commissioner post. But rather than campaigning on the mainstream Republicanism embodied by the family name, Bush says he's "a movement conservative" more in line with the tea party.
"When Obama leaves office, there won't be tens of millions of people newly freed from behind the Iron Curtain, or under the thumb of some third world dictator, as they were under Reagan and Thatcher. Thatcher was responsible for -- along with John Paul II and Ronald Reagan -- the freedom of over a hundred million people.
Colin Powell says he’s not an expert on health care, but thinks America should do single-payer health care because America is wealthy enough to do it.
So far this year Congress has enacted only 52 new laws compared to the 284 laws enacted by the prior Congress. However, some especially pernicious bills are sitting on the calendar just waiting for the year-end rush to allow them to sneak through while the citizenry is asleep with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads.
