The Reaganite Republican Resistance is political-column-style blog based on original commentary, but I really felt the need to re-post this piece from Pat Buchanan. It's outstanding- and should be read by all conservatives. I don't always agree with everything I hear from this pugnacious isolationist (particularly re. Israel)- this really needed to be said:
So, enough Republican naval-gazing already... let the battle begin. We know who we are, and what we stand for... regardless of attempts on the left to divide and create dissarray in the GOP.
Bedrock Reaganite principles of strong defense and minimized government will provide the ideal antidote for voters looking for a way out of Obama-Land in 2010-2012... all we have to do is resist the most outrageous of Obama's proposals, stand up for our beliefs, and most importantly not provide him any political cover for the consequences of his spending and limp defense posture... time is on our side.
As Bobby Jindal has said regarding Republican setbacks at the polls in 2006 and 2008:
"People need to look at the history of Ronald Reagan when he lost his first attempt at the Presidency (in 1976). He didn’t go back and say, ‘Let’s water down the conservatism. Let’s dilute what we’re saying. He made it even stronger.... he made it EVEN sharper. There’s a lesson there for potential candidates"
It's time to call a lie a lie, a fraud a fraud, and Obama's catastrophic errors for just what they are- and bring the battle to the DNC, MSM, and Team Obama- NOW.
