I want you to make a list if you can of your non-negotiables when it comes to someone you will vote for; stances you take in life that you expect to be supported by your elected representatives.

Do you already have a list?

Can you come up with one if you do not have one?

If not, how come?

Steve Deace

Steve Deace of Newsradio 1040 WHO in Des Moines, Iowa asks Michael Reagan what are his non-negotiables.

Notice Michael’s pause and the rough start getting out of the gate.

Michael Reagan Explaining His Non-Negotiables

Michael did not tell Steve what is non-negotiables are because he doesn’t have any. He lives by the 80/20 rule.

I suppose one of his non-negotiables is that he will never not vote Republican regardless how bad the candidate.

Is it an accident that both Michael Reagan and Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour are in Iowa espousing the same thing?

Steve doesn’t think so and he is onto something.

Steve Is Onto Something

In the last couple of days I’ve come across two pieces of evidence to back up Steve’s claim.

Exhibit A – The new and improved GOP website. Two glaring things are missing from the website that jumped out at me.

    1. There is no link to the 2008 GOP Party Platform.
    2. There is no mention anywhere on the website of social or sanctity of life issues.

If you can find either two on the GOP website, please send me the link. I did a search on the GOP website for “life” and the only thing that got close to anything on pro-life issues are comments posted by Republican voters on “Why Are You Republican.”

Exhibit B – This dandy piece of information from Michelle Malkin’s blog.

I’m not going to repost anything Michelle has already written; just read it.

The leftist, pro-baby killing Margaret Sanger Award winning ACORN-loving Dede Scozzafava is who presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich endorses as a “responsible and principled” leader?!!!!

Guess what Newt? You just eliminated yourself from any serious consideration by SERIOUS values voters. If you consider yourself a values voters and you can seriously, with a straight face excuse Newt for this endorsement or vote for him after his endorsement of a leftist with an “R” behind her name, then you are not a SERIOUS values voter. You don’t get to wear that button, sorry.

Michael Steele, Newt Gingrich, and NRCC Chairman Pete Sessions you three better get your collective acts together and wake up and listen to the rumble.

That sucking sound is Republicans who consider themselves values voters leaving the party in droves.

That clicking sound is Republicans who consider themselves values voters hanging up on your fundraising phone calls.

That laughing sound will be Republicans who consider themselves values voters laughing in your faces the next time you try to give a speech to values voters on how pro-life/family you are.

You three are a disgrace and should resign immediately.

Well in Newt’s case, just go away.


This makes me more nauseous then what I’ve been suffering from for the last two days with my vertigo.

Lord Jesus helps this nation.

Heaven knows the Republican leadership surely will not do it.
