Larry Kudlow interviews former Vice President Dick Cheney

So, Dick Cheney backs off his comments about General Colin Powell and the Republican Party. But, Powell has never been a particularly good GOP party man and everyone knows it. This aspect of his career has nothing to do with his moderate social views on abortion or whatever.

If General Powell was so interested in promoting the big tent in the Republican Party why hasn’t he recruited a whole bunch of moderate Republicans and used his celebrity status to raise tons of money for them so they could win Congressional or Senate seats? How about mentoring some African-American Republican candidates?

No, General Powell is a great American but a good Republican Party activist he has not been.

The GOP is happy to have Colin Powell as a member but how about some reciprocation General?

Comments Comments Off on Dick Cheney: “We’re Happy to Have General Colin Powell in the Republican Party”


So says the latest Gallup Poll.
Americans’ views on same-sex marriage have essentially stayed the same in the past year, with a majority of 57% opposed to granting such marriages legal status and 40% in favor of doing so. Though support for legal same-sex marriage is significantly higher now than when Gallup first asked about it in 1996, in recent years support has appeared to stall, peaking at 46% in 2007.

Now, you know why the politicans, including President Obama, are not rushing to jump on the pro-gay marriage bandwagon. When talking about the institution of marriage Americans are not easily persuaded away from one man and one woman.

Judge Sonia Sotomayor speaking at Duke University Law School in 2005 – Appeals Court where Policy is Made

How quickly can you say out of the mainstream?

With Judge Sonia Sotomayor already facing questions over her 60 percent reversal rate, the Supreme Court could dump another problem into her lap next month if, as many legal analysts predict, the court overturns one of her rulings upholding a race-based employment decision.

Three of the five majority opinions written by Judge Sotomayor for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals and reviewed by the Supreme Court were reversed, providing a potent line of attack raised by opponents Tuesday after President Obama announced he will nominate the 54-year-old Hispanic woman to the high court.

“Her high reversal rate alone should be enough for us to pause and take a good look at her record. Frankly, it is the Senates duty to do so,” said Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America.

Judge Sotomayor will likely be confirmed by the U.S. Senate but make no mistake – She is a left-wing activist judge who will “MAKE LAW” from the bench.

Elections have consequences and the GOP will have the opportunity to use this appointment to campaign for more GOP Senators that would temper any further Obama appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court.
