    Syndicated columnist and ABC contributor George Will gave an amazing speech to CPAC Thursday.

    In it, he outlined the differences between liberalism and conservatism, and explained why the latter is once again on the rise in our nation.

    For George Will fans, this was one of the best speeches he has ever given.

    ...was the 1000 young pilots that stopped the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain.

    "Perhaps without even realizing it, in mid-September 1940 Hitler lost the war, defeated by the efforts of perhaps 1,000 young men. Unable to invade and conquer Britain, he would turn against the Soviet Union, sacrificing the Germans army, and thereby prolonging his war until, at last, the Americans were dragged into it by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, pitting Germany against three of the most powerful industrial countries in the world.
    All this was to come, and nobody, not even Churchill, could foretell it in the autumn of 1940, when Britain still stood alone. But Dowding (the Air Chief Marshal of the RAF) and "his chicks" had prefailed, and it is perfectly fitting that September 15 should be celebrated every year as "Battle of Britain Day."

    George Will has to tell Republicans "how to think about things". Odd that.

    I love the way he talks to everyone like little children. Draw a picture of Gawd.

    Liberals are for spreading dependency? That is he "liberal" agenda? Why do you people say such nonsense?

    At least he admits Bush and the Republicans as behind this recession.

    Republicans complain about insurance for children. No surprise there.

    Drive all private providers out of health care? Does the US mail drive UPS and FED EX out of business? or does it give the public a, get this, "public option"? God, I get so tired of you guys lying. Just so tired of Republican lies.

    Health care companies made 12 billion dollars this year by cutting over two million people. Why don't Republicans ever talk about that? Why?

    It's so hard listening to this guy because he is so full of shit.

    He talks about the ability to sue. We know Republicans are trying to limit that. Why doesn't he mention that?

    He complains about stimulus money being used to keep police and firemen employed. We we really want no police or firemen? Those are the "public persons" he is talking about.

    Why doesn't he mention the 50s and 60s when the tax rate for the top 5% was 75 to 90% and the economy was exploding? And CEOs only made 20 to 30 times the lowest paid person. Now, you have a health care company CEO making over 70 MILLION. Why? Why so much? What are they doing to skim so much money off insurance policies.

    I love the fact that he attacks schools. 6% of scientists admit to being Republican. College professors voted for Obama 12 to 1. George Will is once again playing on the fears of the Republican Party. They love to make decisions based on fear.

    He, just like most Republcians, is calling climate change a lie. Yea, those awful scientists, of which Republicans are so few.

    I love a Republican, who is part of a party that voted against MLK day, is more than 90% white, QUOTES Martin Luther King. It's a "hoot".

    So recap.

    George Will is against:

    Insurance for children

    the Public option

    Education

    Stimulus money being used to keep policemen and firemen employed.

    Science.

    Yep, he is most definitely a Republican.

    And not a single word about foreign policy.

    One of the worst speeches I have ever heard. Lied about Democrats and gave not a single new idea. Do Republicans have ANY ideas? ANY at all?
