    So Lugar is probably not the only one ready to throw Iraq over:

    Bush tried - but both sides had the yellow streak down their back and failed to do anything about it

    So how important is this amnesty thing to Bush? More important than Iraq:

    I agree about the amnesty thing. You do understand what this means to the WOT? To the elections coming up in about a year and a half? This was foolhardy of the Republican leadership and almost seems contrived to break the GOP.

    I agree with you. Perhaps the current Republicans are paying attention. If not there are plenty of Reagan conservatives who, I hope, will step up, and take them on in the primaries

    I think you are misunderstanding. No one can 'revive' twenty years ago. Might their be someone that can communicate ideas as well as Reagan? I'm not seeing anyone IN THE RACE yet that can. Thompson? So far he says all the right things on his own blog and in editorials-but hasn't faced questioning from the media, the people, or any opponents.

    He would have to 'walk on water' to save what is going to be left if this bill should fail. Impossible if it were to pass.

    Kathy, NOBODY could ever be another Ronald Reagan. I have many pictures of him in my home. He was the best President in my lifetime, and there will never be another Reagan

    Now, can someone come along and stand by the conservative principals of Reagan - yes

    Fred Thompson could be that man. The liberal media is starting their attacks -which should tell you something
