The Life and Times of Dick Nixon

The Style of Ronald Reagan

George Bush Still Doesn't Get It 11/24/10
Former President George H.W. Bush's appearance on Larry King live last night reminds one why the man was twice rejected as an candidate for the US Senate, defeated in his campaign for President in 1980 and then, once elevated to office by the good graces of Ronald Reagan, is unable to get himself re-elected. Without Ronald Reagan, Bush would be a retired oil executive in Houston. The man is likeable but his political tin-ear endures. Asked about the Tea Party, Bush says he doesn't know what they stand for and cant therefore say whether the movement is good for the country. Can the man not read?

Who Killed JFK? 11/24/10
Every November 22nd brings a wave of new conspiracy theories regarding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Indeed, former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura airs a TV special this week claiming George H.W. Bush was involved in the conspiracy to kill JFK- ludicrous in view of the fact that Bush was not yet a Congressman or CIA Director and was just of the verge of losing his first US Senate race in 1964. Real power alluded Bush until Nixon sent him the CIA in and significant power alluded him until Reagan selected him for Vice President in 1980.

Governor Gary Johnson of New Mexico 11/11/10
A week before the Election I had occasion to be on the hot Fox Business show Money Rocks, hosted by Eric Bolling. Also on the panel was former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. In the brief discussion Johnson impressed me deeply. A Libertarian Republican in the Ron Paul tradition, Johnson is an outspoken and articulate critic of our failed war on drugs and a proponent of legalizing Marijuana.

Pee Wee's Redemption 11/11/10

Client #9 - A Movie Review 11/11/10
The only thing worse than the survival of Nevada Senator Harry Reid on election night was seeing serial criminal and abuser of women Eliot Spitzer opining on election results for CNN. Make no mistake about it; if Spitzer was a Republican he's be making license plates at an upstate New York prison. Spitzer violated the Mann Act, that is, taking a woman across five state lines for the purposes of prostitution. When a Republican New York Supreme Court justice did the same thing in 2009 he was prosecuted and sent to prison. Why does Spitzer walk the streets?

Moynihan The Pol 11/4/10
Former New York Timesman Steve Weissman has pulled together a terrific book of the letters of Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. I always admired Moynihan who was witty, mischievous, brilliant and versatile. While Weissman does a fine job, I find he leaves one key aspect of Moynihan's talents unexamined - that of political operator and courtier.

LeMieux in 2010? No thanks 11/4/10
Appointed Florida Senator George Lemieux, who described himself as a "Charlie Crist Republican" when appointed to the Senate announced the day after the election that he was considering running for the seat of Senator Bill Nelson in 2012. LeMieux was the promoter, defender and protector of the corrupt Republican Party of Florida Chairman and took $350,000 in party funds from Greer to line his pockets. LeMieux in 2012? No thanks.

Dicker Busted Again 10/14/10
After New York Post curmudgeon Fred Dicker provoked Republican Candidate for Governor Carl Paladino in a chest poking rant seen around the world, Dicker took to the airwaves to claim he was pushed around and nearly knocked to the ground by "3" goons from the Paladino campaign.

Dicking Fred Dicker 10/12/10
The New York Post's Fred Dicker is a self-styled latter day Walter Winchell, using his old media perch at the Post to promote his (temporary) friends and attack their enemies. Dicker was once a booster of Governor George Pataki only to turn viciously on him in his last term. Dicker also bought into Governor Eliot Spitzer's "Day One-everything changes" campaign pledge before he almost single-handedly laid the Troopergate scandal in which Spitzer used the New York State Police to smear his political opponents at Spitzer's door.

Daily News Smear 10/12/10
The New York Governors' took on an even Kafkaesque quality this week when The New York Daily News attacked New York Republican Gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino for adhering to New York State election law. Under the election law, when a candidate utilizes anything of value from a commercial company he or she owns, they must either declare the value of those items as an in-kind contribution, or they must pay for them. The only crime exists if the candidate utilizes, say, computers, office space, office personnel, or office supplies, and neither reports nor pays for them.

Is Obama the New Jimmy Carter? 8/17/10
President Barrack Obama maybe our most incompetent President since Jimmy Carter. Both Carter and Obama share the same high opinion of themselves and both are now revealed to be bunglers without a clue. Obama's 12 hour support for the Ground Zero Mosque before he mounted a full and hasty retreat is the single worst misstep since Carter blamed a national malaise for the nation's problems.

FOX: Roger Stone on the Nevada Showdown 8/2/10

Will Someone Save Angle? 8/2/10
Republican US Senate candidate Sharon Angle can still win the seat of U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid despite an expensive early summer negative TV pounding of Angle by Reid's Special Interest-fueled campaign and a so-called 527 committee organized by Reid cronies. A recent Rasmussen Poll show 41 % of voters now viewed Angle unfavorably while 48 % Reid's negatives still outweighs Angle's. Reid is under 50% at 45% and Angle is at 43%. High unemployment is hurting Reid who is trying to depict Angle as a dangerous nut.
