When Bud speaks, one ought to listen. I hope any Romney fans who might be lurking out there will stop for a minute and think about what this means; namely, Newt is miles closer to Reagan than Romney ever will be. If you loved Ronald Reagan, you cannot possibly favor Romney over Newt. Please, for the love of God, McFarlane knows what he’s talking about and would not lead conservatives astray.
Brings back good memories!
another one for the Gipper!
Not what I'd call a basis for recommendation. Further, I remember well an interview with Bud McFarlane detailing what a terrific investment developing Pakistan would be. How'd that turn out?
