Well mirror mirror on the wall who's the most conservative of them all.
It seems as if candidates on the Republican side spend a whole lot of time attempting to prove their conservative modifies.
While disparaging and questioning the authenticity.
Of the other Republicans.
Look I personally know all of the candidates vying for the nomination.
And let me simply stipulate that compared to President Obama they are all True Blue conservatives.
Oh sure each other and have some strengths and weaknesses and the voters can and should sort all that stuff out.
The pay little attention to the notion that any of these guys are liberals.
Look that's nonsense.
Osama gonna have to answer for statements made relationships forged laws that -- past personal failures -- financial gains or losses.
But none of them are even close to being liberals.
Four years ago Rush Limbaugh love Mitt Romney and he supported him as the true conservative.
Four years later he's criticizing the same Mitt Romney for not being conservative enough.
-- Mitt Romney really hasn't changed in four years but maybe Rush Limbaugh is the one doing the flip flopping.
Newt Gingrich has been relentlessly ripped is not being a conservative because he worked with Democrats in congress.
But one of the things that he worked with him to do is to have a balanced budget and get people off welfare rolls and on the payrolls.
Rick Santorum who you'll meet in a moment.
Is being called an extremist because he believes that marriage still means when it's always -- one man one woman a lifetime relationship.
Only in the past few years would that position be considered out of -- mainstream and in fact.
That position was to position a spouse just four years ago by Hillary Clinton Joseph Biden.
And yes then candidate Barack Obama.
So what does matter what here's what I'm looking for a candidate.
My candidate has to believe that we are a nation of law not a personality.
Being president isn't being team and president should except the power.
But also the limitations of being one of three equal branches of government.
My candidate needs to honor all human life and not because he's against the surgical procedure of abortion.
But because he believes that every human being has value and worse.
My candidate ought to believe that lower taxes are better than higher taxes but you know what keeping taxes low on your running up debts on future generations that's not conservative and it's not responsible.
My candidate needs to believe that the best government is the most local government because it's closest to the people being governed.
And you ought to believe that one of the few purposes of government is to secure and protect our borders.
And have a military strong enough that we don't have to use it because potential enemies are afraid that we might.
And my candidate ought to believe that mothers and fathers raise better kids than governments do.
Now could I support any of the candidates on the GOP side of course.
Because my mirror on the wall says the compared to Obama.
They are conservatives.
Each and all.
I also want to say a salute to Michelle Bachmann who we exited the race.
After Iowa but not without exhibiting extraordinary class and dignity and the way that she did it.
Throughout her campaign she was a tough and Smart competitor but she showed one of her finest moments in the gracious and graceful way.
That she handled a tough loss and I think.
I once you get your point yeah.
