    After explaining why Obama has been a poor President, and why it is the Republican's election to lose, former Bush speechwriter and political commentator Peggy Noonan had this to say.

    did she write for bush too? I thought she was strictly a Reaganite.


    anyway, peggy was taken with obama, and has been pretty flattering or ' very' even handed with him over the last 2 years, so this is interesting tea leaf reading by her.

    And of course shes right, no offense but this isn't rocket science, someone personable and 'apparently' competent, not that the latter is a virtue a amongst pols, if they have to much of the former especially :lol:

    Noonan...........shes an establishment Republican............getting ornery because she used to be a babe and now she's officially lost it. The only place she can get passes now is going to the DC parties where idiots like Karl Rove can hit on her.

    Noonan supported John McCain in the last election.

    Look how well that turned out.

    I am going to write in a fictional character for president in 2012.

    All the real people are ... compromised.

    Is this the same Peggy Noonan who was lavishing Obama with praise throughout the 2008 election? Yeah, I'm sure the GOP is real concerned about her opinion.

    All the Conservative commentators said we need a "moderate, get along with Democrats" sort of nominee. Colin Powell said we need a guy like John McCain, then he endorsed Obama.

    The Republican nominee this time around needs to be a Conservative, if the Left wants to paint him or her as an extremist, well then we just need to deal with that.

    No more McCains!
