    Reagan’s Response to 1976 Loss


    http://www.conservative.org/pressroo...reagan1975.asp
    REAGAN at CPAC: “Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?”

    “A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers.”

    “I do not believe I have proposed anything that is contrary to what has been considered Republican principle. It is at the same time the very basis of conservatism. It is time to reassert that principle and raise it to full view. And if there are those who cannot subscribe to these principles, then let them go their way.”

    If only we can find another Ronald Reagan.

    And the Big 3 need to find another Lee Iaccoca.

    We do have another Reagan in or midst and after two years of Obama he just might get disgusted enough to run and when he does it will be a dark day for the leftwing nuts that got Obama elected.

    Old Texan!
    Come on John, try to keep up!

    I firmly believe that this election, and the following term (however long it turns out) will be studied and taught as one of the biggest blunders in this country's history. A lesson in influence, false "Hope" and voter manipulation.
    In hindsight, it will be almost unbelievably ridiculous.
    An opportunist, grossly unqualified, with a very sharp campaign strategy and weak opponent, pandering to a desperate nation. A mistake not to be repeated.
    That's how it will be remembered.

    If I am wrong, I will be the first to say so, and will be happy I was wrong. But I don't think so.

    And I believe that when these times are in the history books, it will be Bush's 8 years in office that will be viewed as biggest downfall our country ever experienced.

    I have confidence, that you don't have, that the next 8 years wlll be better.


    BTW, I like the OT for Pres movement

    The next 4 years at least, I won't be hurt. The country may be in a shambles, but that can be fixed hopefully. When I hit whatever taxation mark O finally sets, I'll be in Mexico for the rest of that year.
    I am VERY, VERY fortunate to be in this position and I know it. I know most of the population will face hardship.
    My start up corp., and expansion I had planned on is gone, but I will be fine personally.
    Bush's term will be taught for sure, no argument. But it will also teach the handcuffing endured by non-partisan congress.
    BUT, You ain't seen nothing yet.
    The upcoming term will illustrate the damage done when there is no buffer. (For lack of proper terminology)
    O's appointments reads like a freaking weakling on the playground trying to pick players when he doesn't even know the game.

    As you said, you hope you are wrong and I believe that will be.

    Still glad to know that you will be OK regardless.

    A president is handed a recession. Less than eight months after taking office has his country attacked due to the negligence of the previous President. At the same time his leadership in the war on terror liberates 50+ million people a Hurricane named Katrina hits the gulf coast. At the same time the economy roars on with growth at its highest levels in history and unemployment rates Clinton could only dream of.

    This President through his policies protects our country from further attacks for over seven years and according to a historian on this site will be remembered as the worst in history.

    Guess you already forgot who Bill (Slick Willy) Clinton is.

    Forgot?
    Heck no.

    According to ultra, Bill could be president again, if he'd just take up position as Speaker Of The House and then the Pres & VP both died.

    Ain't that right ultra?

    Apparently you missed the Carter era.

    My favorite event was when we lost 8 military lives without even
    meeting the enemy. And that era left us with prime interest rates
    in the 20's.

    I anticipate the O era to be similar in nature.
