From reader and frequent photographer Scott, who sent this photo with the subject line “It seems I’m not alone”:

I regret that I’ve been remiss in getting images out to you, especially since Raleigh seems the perfect battleground state again in 2012. I’ll try to do better as we inch toward November.

My wife spotted this one as we sat at a red light earlier this morning on a rainy Saturday in North Carolina. Since Andrew Breitbart’s death on Thursday, I’ve found myself looking for signs that things are going to be alright. I think I’m going to be just fine.

Thanks again for the eloquent work you do, rest assured it does not go unappreciated.

Michael Reagan, in this interview with Mark Levin, shoots down the smears spread by the Romney campaign and its supporters regarding Newt and Ronald Reagan.

Meanwhile, Jeffrey Lord has another great piece, Newt Battles Mush From the Wimps (h/t jiminsocal in the Tip Line):

Thanks to reader Doug, who writes:

Spotted today near Point Of Rocks, (Peoples Democratic Republic of) Maryland.

I think we know where this person stands. I especially like the greeting to the ACLU.


Personally, this is my favorite, a reminder of those who stood with him and those who stood against him:

I have been pounding the keyboard all week about the lies and distortions of the Romney campaign and supporters about Newt’s record of support for Ronald Reagan.

These allegations were played out by the Romney campaign and on Drudge, and did serious damage to Newt, both substantively and by forcing Newt to...

One of the videos linked by Drudge, of Newt supposedly bashing Reagan while talking about George H.W. Bush running in 1980, is misleadingly edited.

Dan Riehl has the details and the more complete video:

There’s a short excerpt of a 1988 C-SPAN video purportedly showing Newt Gingrich bashing Reagan when talking about how...

There is something truly obscene about the full blown assault on Newt Gingrich’s strong Reagan conservative history from and on behalf of Mitt Romney, who unabashedly ran away from the Reagan legacy and conservative principles in his 1994 Senate campaign and 2002 gubernatorial campaign. Truly obscene.

The latest iteration comes from Elliott...

Some of the best YouTube videos are the ones you find when you are looking for something else.

And I think this is a pretty good one for three reasons. 

First, how great is it to see this piece of history?  Second, it highlights the argument over tax cuts as a means...

Hat tip to Sunshine State Sarah for this video of Ronald Reagan’s December 23, 1981 Christmas address to the nation.

There are so many amazing things about this video.  It’s uplifting and depressing at the same time.

When will it be over?

Reader Hope Change in the Tip Line suggests the following caption for this photo:  “That’s right, Mr. President, National Review is trying to elect Mitt Romney.”

I think that’s a good one, although it presumes Reagan would have known who Romney was.  Any other suggestions?

And the timing is good as Citizens United (yes,...

After a week of A Rising Tide angry bumper stickers, it’s nice to get back to basics.

Seen in Danbury CT – looked brand new!

Go back and listen to his farewell speech, not only for his words of hope about that shining city upon a hill but also his warning about the eradication of the American memory.

What a guy.  He not only saved Nancy Reagan when she was falling, he also gave a speech  on the role of government which should be remembered as the kick off of the Marco Rubio for President campaign, we just don’t know what year yet.
