The Republican primary has become a indicator of what has become of the conservative movement in general. The right wing has moved so far to the right that it has become a delusional cargo cult that worships the fanciful memory of Ronald Reagan. All you have to do is listen to AM radio for ten minutes to hear the most negative, distorted, whining, blather you have ever heard and every 3 minutes some reference to Ronald Reagan is made. Apparently he cut taxes, balanced the budget, brought on world peace, over turned Rove vs Wade, and re instituted prayer in the schools, in this FIRST TERM!

Sadly, mud-slinging works. If you don't do it you lose.

What I really want to hear is a cohesive, comprehensive plan spelled out with supporting numbers that will tell us all EXACTLY how each of these candidates will accomplish what they are promising. I'm very tired of the vague, nebulous, slippery rhetoric they pour forth every day.

Just give us the facts and nothing but the facts. Truthfully.

That would be real leadership.

Unfortunately, we'll never see or hear it.
