It's kind of long, and there is a section where he gets pretty hawkish about Iran, but overall he makes a lot of good points. Makes good points on how Romney should have handled questions about his wealth; and how POTUS could/should have responded to the Benghazi attack.

He basically starts out with trying to understand why conservatives seem to be ashamed of their message. His ending is thought-provoking: he cites how the progressives are so very good at all they do when it comes to promoting their agenda, getting out votes, and using the media. This versus how poorly conservatives do all these things. Yet, in spite of how poorly conservative perform in those areas, the election comes down to just about 50/50. His conclusion: it would take so very little for conservatives to turn the tide in their favor ... just by truly believing their own message and doing just SOME things right.

The whole fiasco in Congress that has been going on could be interpreted to be due to the same reasons. And I also keep thinking of Rand Paul's efforts to rescue the Pakistani doctor who helped located bin Laden falling on deaf ears.

Romney should have hired Whittle to run his campaign, or at least his speechwriter! :-)

Well...lookee here. The FAMOUS phoney Sarge has spoken...like anyone gives a crap. Been in charge of any platoons lately, Sarge? Or are you as military as Algore and that other pathetic gigolo that has intentions of being the new sec of state?

I had no idea who he was either. Just stumbled across the video on YouTube. Here's the intro on Wikipedia:

But, Gerry...don't you KNOW????? That's an afront to the lefties like the Sarge. Since his messiah is in charge, NOBODY has any view worth listening to, other than what the annointed class has to say.

You are completely correct, Stan. This is a typical Minnesooota loon. This IS as conservative as they get. They've lost anything of value in their God-forsaken state, so they will come to sodak and then bitch if we can't supply them with ideal hunting that they long ago destroyed in loonland.

BTW, you SHOULD do some copy and pasting. You may stumble on something worth reading...it certainly isn't coming from your views.

Besides stocked birds, sky carp and Kones what exactly does SD have to offer me that I can't get within a 15 mile drive from my house? :D

I have no clue. I wouldn't be caught dead in the Peoples Republic of Minnesooooota. But hanging out 15 miles from your house sounds like a good plan for you. I'll be sure to never enter into your territory.

Now if I can just get you to stop reading my posts, that would make my day.
