Here is the text.
My favorite portion:
In recent months leaders in our government have told us that, we, the people, have lost confidence in ourselves; that we must regain our spirit and our will to achieve our national goals. Well, it is true there is a lack of confidence, an unease with things the way they are. But the confidence we have lost is confidence in our government's policies. Our unease can almost be called bewilderment at how our defense strength has deteriorated. The great productivity of our industry is now surpassed by virtually all the major nations who compete with us for world markets. And, our currency is no longer the stable measure of value it once was.
But there remains the greatness of our people, our capacity for dreaming up fantastic deeds and bringing them off to the surprise of an unbelieving world. When Washington's men were freezing at Valley Forge, Tom Paine told his fellow Americans: "We have it in our power to begin the world over again," we still have that power.
We--today's living Americans--have in our lifetime fought harder, paid a higher price for freedom and done more to advance the dignity of man than any people who have ever lived on this Earth. The citizens of this great nation want leadership--yes--but not a "man on a white horse" demanding obedience to his commands. They want someone who believes they can "begin the world over again." A leader who will unleash their great strength and remove the roadblocks government has put in their way. I want to do that more than anything I've ever wanted. And it's something that I believe with God's help I can do.
Contrast that optimism with the shit Obama spews on a daily basis. Contrast Reagan's optimism with Obama's clueless fatalism. Contrast Reagan's belief in the things that made and continue to make America great with a fool who bows before anything in front of him. And contrast the hope and change that Reagan promised (and delivered) versus what we have now.
America's best days are ahead of us, and fuck those who disagree. Fuck them with the sonicblasted hurty stick of hurt. Fuck them for pushing the clowns on us who are preventing our best days. Fuck those fuckduckcocks of FAIL. Fuck them because we need people at the helm who are optimistic, not whining fuckwhiners who blame others. And fucking fuck them with the fucksicle of fucking get outta my fucking way for being dead fucking weight holding America back.
We need people willing to dream and accomplish big dreams, not fucking pussies who tell us we should accept less in order to spread the wealth. We need people who refuse to leave a shithole for their children to live in, not clowns who continue to burden and enslave our future to a life of penury and chattelism to the bureaucracy. And we need somebody with the balls to tell the left to fuck off and take their fuckitude with them. And all of this was accomplished with the projection of strength, confidence, intelligence, and a refusal to accept nothing less than the best for all.
So, fuck you lefties. Take a look at how a real man with optimism can save the world. It happened once, and may soon happen again in 2012.

I do not believe that I am capable of articulating how much I miss Pres. Reagan or how much he means to my life. I firmly believe that without him and Mrs. Thatcher, there would have been nuclear war and the Soviet Union would never have collapsed in the manner it did.
Happy Birthday, Mr. President. I know the Moron Horde misses you terribly.

Meanwhile, leftists around the world begin new contest to see who can offer the most ghoulish comments on this breaking news. Not that I'm Outraged!TM by that kind of conduct, you can't be outraged when you know well enough not to expect any better.

Steve Schmidt, former campaign strategist for John McCain, said Friday that nominating former Alaska governor Sarah Palin for president in 2012 would be “catastrophic” for the party.Pardon my French, Steve, but fuck you. The GOP should be taking advice from the guy who ran the oh-so-successful McCain campaign last year? As Bugs Bunny would say, "It is to laugh." Shit, the people who ran the Dole campaign back in '96 look like geniuses compared to a pantload like you.
We. Lost. To. An. Empty. Suit. You. Fucking. Ar-tard.
Go ahead and read the rest, though I'd advise you not to have any liquids in your mouth as you might need a new keyboard upon reading the advice of leading conservatives such as (and I shit you not) David "Pant Crease" Brooks about the direction the party needs to take. Yeah.

Comment of the day, at Hotair,
Heh. Of course, given the deranged reaction liberals have to her, in a socialist hellhole utopia like LA, leftists may just steal all the copies of the book like leftists on college campuses steal conservative newspapers and newsletters.

If you ever want to make your eyes bleed, try reading pretty much any section of the US Code. Seriously, do it. It's next to impossible to comprehend what the hell the statutes mean most of the time. I've actually had to sit down and make a chart to attempt to understand just what the hell happened when SCHIP passed and the amendments to the Medicare Secondary Payer provisions went through. (My life is so freaking interesting, let me tell you) Hell, there's still a huge fight as to what precisely all of it means and what, exactly, was amended. Then there's the implementing regulations and oh I have an enormous rant about how Congress is punting legislative authority off to the administrative process.
Actually reading the damn bills may, possibly, prevent some of the worst of this. No law should leave a person scratching his/her head and saying "But what does it mean?" It shouldn't.
Reason 12,384,287,003 that people hate lawyers is because lawyers make the simplest sentence complex. "Don't bang a 12 year old" turns into "In the instance when a child (see 99 USCA 231.99(b)(4)(C)(iv) for definition of "child")[term to be used to mean both male, female, intersexed and/or transgendered] is touched in a sexual manner (see 188 USCA 213.862(a)(4)(D)(ii) for the definition of "touched" and 163 USCA 74.23(b)(ii)) for the definition of "sexual") by a person who exceeds the age of majority for the jurisdiction in which said touching occurred, then such person shall be subject to penalites as set out in 176 USCA 34.53(c)(3)(DD)(ii)(a)."*
There's no need for all of this complexity. There's not. Maybe, possibly, reading the damn bills will prevent that.
*If it's not obvious, that example and all citations there in are totally made up.

WASHINGTON – Talk-show host Sean Hannity, a vocal opponent of Barack Obama's policies, said today he would not rule out a bid for the presidency in 2012.
Hannity would make a formidable candidate, with the likability of Reagan, good looks and strong convictions. He's also a polished communicator and knows the issues inside out.
And he can debate.
Really? I've listened to his show and hollering "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" doesn't really strike me as debating.
Maybe I'm wrong maybe that is what the GOP needs to counter the likes of Biden and Franks. I have never thought that Hannity has shown a particularly good grasp of issues but maybe that doesn't matter either. At least he isn't a consistently grumpy guy like McCain and he may have more energy than Fred Thompson exhibited.

That right there says what I feel.
One taste but if you want the cone you're gonna have to click.
Republican candidates must recognize the Obama disaster as a unique opportunity to explain the fundamental flaws in the statist model our nation has pursued for generations....snip...
We’ve had enough of people like Obama trying to use the government to change us. We’re tired of being slammed with thousand-page bills that tell us what we have to sacrifice, and what we’re not allowed to do. We want to see some one-page bills that list things the government is not allowed to do.
Go. Read. Bring a sock.

Instapundit is needlessly confused:
“Despite the results of the 2008 presidential election, Americans, by a 2-to-1 margin, say their political views in recent years have become more conservative rather than more liberal, 39% to 18%, with 42% saying they have not changed. While independents and Democrats most often say their views haven’t changed, more members of all three major partisan groups indicate that their views have shifted to the right rather than to the left.” Hmm. Can this be true?
Of course it's true. Everyone knows that people become more conservative as they get older. Maybe not everyone but I can easily see a two to one margin. This doesn't mean that the country is getting more conservative overall, just that people move to the right as they accumulate life experiences and the utopian promises and platitudes of the left run against the cold rejection of reality.
Remember, there are millions of young people that are already liberal because of youth and indoctrination coming along behind any increasingly conservative group of adults.

All that said, I'm sorry, but people should have known what this guy was long before Crap&Trade went down, and shouldn't be surprised by his betrayal. He's a RINO's RINO (frankly, I think the guy is fascist, or fascist-leaning, certainly statist), it has been long known that the guy drank the global warming Kool-Aid.
To my knowledge, he's also the ONLY GOPer in Congress to be both endorsed by the ghouls in the Brady Campaign and Planned Parenthood. Anyone with that much disregard for the right to self-defense and life should be held suspect from day one, I don't know how he flew under so many conservative radars for so damn long.

Boycotts work, and I'm going to go back to examples of Second Amendment activist success to show that this works. During the 90's, one of the things the Democrats were going to do to try and destroy the Second in the US was team up with cities and individuals to file suit against firearms manufacturers. Unless those manufacturers agreed to a bunch of abusive limitations, nanny restrictions and and other Orwellian obscenities, individuals and cities, backed by the Feds would sue manufacturers into oblivion.
The industry agreed as a whole to tell the Administration to get bent, and they'd fight the extortion tooth and nail. Except Smith & Wesson, then owned by a British firm (and as we all know, the Brits are unwilling to stand up to authoritarians), they caved and signed the agreement in 2000, what is known as S&W's Deal With The Devil.
Consumers and activists were furious, and almost immediately demand for S&Ws collapsed and the market was flooded with used ones. In about a year, S&W was sold to a US firm at a huge loss, the US firm immediately rejected the Deal With The Devil, and S&W has since recovered quite nicely, though it took years to regain consumer trust.
The good news is that Bush signed legislature passed by Congress afterwards to try and prevent that sort of extortion scheme from being enacted again. The Democrats are afraid to try and roll that back too, because they know they lose elections when they piss off the NRA and activists.
If we stand firm, and make it known that what is happening is unacceptable to us, and we do refuse to buy new GM and Chryslers, or even go so far as to sell our current ones in protest, a strong message will be sent, and they will have to listen.
I can assure you, my next vehicle won't be a GM or Chrysler.
