Someone to watch: Ryan Frazier

Ryan Frazier is a city councilman for Aurora, a large Denver suburb. He is a Navy veteran, has an intelligence background, and he's done an excellent job of balancing public service with staying involved and in touch with the private sector. He's a supporter of small business and a champion of personal liberties.  Ryan's also an inspiring public speaker - the video I'm posting here doesn't even begin to convey the energy he brings into a room when he speaks.


Ryan announced he has filed an exploratory committee to run for Senate on his Twitter feed.  He'll be running against Michael Bennet, who was nominated in place of Ken Salazar when Salazar was sucked into the Obama administration.  While I don't find Bennet personally offensive, I don't consider him trustworthy - he made a commitment to superintend Denver Public Schools for five years but left after just three.  Many people in DPS feel that Bennet used the district as a stepping stone.

Ryan Frazier is qualified, knowledgeable, and inspiring. I've considered him one of the fresh faces to watch in the new GOP since I heard him speak several months ago, and I'm excited that he's decided to make the plunge to run for Senate.  He's someone we can trust to watch out for us.

The criminalization of conservatism

We've let the left define conservatism far too much, and now they're moving toward criminalizing it, and of course, much of the GOP leadership is either complicit or too cowardly to oppose them.  This has become a fight that regular folks are going to have to fight.  I'm actually pretty confident we can turn things around, but it's going to take a long, long time and a lot of work.

Also, a good roundup of photos and other goodies from the demonstrations today.

I disagree with the Magnificent Bastard

I don't often have reason to say this, but I'm in disagreement with Karl Rove and his recent statements regarding the divisiveness of President Obama's presidency.

The same poll also found that 76% of independents worry that government will spend too much to help the economy; only 12% worry it will spend too little. Independents oppose Mr. Obama's proposed budget by a 55%-37% margin.

If independents continue looking more like Republicans, especially on deficits, spending and the economy, Mr. Obama and congressional Democrats could be in for a rough ride.

Independents aren't starting to look like Republicans, Mr. Rove. The Democratic party has moved so far to the left with the election and subsequent blind support of President Obama that it is becoming harder and harder for any rational person to continue supporting the Dems. Obama is not polarizing the country - he is giving the majority of the country a common enemy in the socialization of our economy and the "Blame America First" mentality. A few more years of this, as independents begin to recognize that the goal of the far left is the destruction of our country's foundations, and the country may well be nearly as united against the far left as we were after the September 11 attacks.

Obama isn't dividing the country, he's uniting it - but not in the way he hoped. After Carter came Reagan, after Obama will come another era of conservatism.  Obama's greatest gift to our country may end up being the two presidential terms after he leaves office.

A Convergence of Awesome

Here is Dennis Miller's interview of Mark Levin from his Wednesday show.  I haven't heard it yet, but Levin's take on Miller was far different from Hannity's
