-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Anti-conservative Rick Pearson promotes influential Republican Kirk Dillard, again. The Combine wants Obama to be America's next president. Combine members are influential and they do significant things to help elect Obama. People ask who are the "Republican" members of the Combine? Tragically, Dillard seems to want to be viewed a Republican Combine member. Tragically, not only did Dillard help Obama win the Democrat Party presidential nomination by doing a television ad for him, he continues to blast Republicans who criticize him for doing that.

http://www.suntimes.com/news/elections/rnc/1138805,delegates090108.article
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois’ Republicans have been washed out of every statewide office in recent years following former Gov. George Ryan’s scandals. The state party’s hope against U.S. Rep. Dick Durbin, Dr. Steven Sauerberg, cheerfully made the rounds at Monday morning’s breakfast, even though the odds look long for him to beat Durbin in Barack Obama’s home state this year. But the party’s new leadership is more hopeful for 2010 when they think voters will be tired of Gov. Blagojevich and ready to elect Republicans statewide again. And the party leaders are also hopeful that John McCain’s choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will help his effort. “She’s an outstanding choice: She’s pro-life. She’s pro-gun. She made some great comments. She has attracted conservatives. And I think she will attract women,” said Demetra DeMonte, the new Republican National Committeewoman from Illinois. Former Gov. Jim Edgar and State sen. Republican leader Frank Watson both said they were initially skeptical about Palin but have come around. “At first blush, I thought it was a mistake -- it took experience off the table as an issue to use against Obama,” Edgar said. “But now that I’ve gotten to know more about her, I think it was a very good decision.” Illinois Republicans will hear from former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton and McCain’s former Vietnam cell mate Bud Day. Bob Michel, former minority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, emerged from the elevator carrying his golf clubs Monday morning. “There’s some dead time here -- we gotta make the most of it,” he said.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
-- FROM THE EDITORIAL: Nearly half of girls between the ages of 15 and 19 have had sex at least once, according to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, and some 750,000 become pregnant every year. The vast majority of teen pregnancies -- 82% -- are unplanned. Of those pregnancies, 29% end in abortion; 14% are miscarriages; and 57% result in live births.

What if in 2000 Bush had set a goal for America to bring the out-of-wedlock birth rate back down to the pre-Great Society level by the end of the decade? - Dave Diersen
www.gopillinois.com
Children born out-of-wedlock are at a tremendous disadvantage -- everyone knows that including those who create children out-of-wedlock. Tragically some 70 percent of African-American children are born out-of-wedlock and tragically, some 40 percent of Hispanic children are born out-of-wedlock. No one disputes the fact that the Democrat Party's failed "Great Society" big push for socialism in the 1960s dramatically increased the African-American out-of-wedlock birth rate. I have had only one conversation with George Will and it was shortly after Bush was elected in 2000. During that conversation, I urged Will to urge Bush to set a goal for America like Kennedy did in the 1960s. The goal Kennedy set was to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. I urged Will to urge Bush to set a new goal for America -- to bring the out-of-wedlock birth rate back down to the pre-Great Society level by the end of the decade. Sadly, Will rejected my suggestion out-of-hand. What if Will and Bush had taken my suggestion?
