-- Who will speak at the Illinois Republican Party (IRP) luncheon on Saturday, December 13 in Bolingbrook -- McCain, Palin, Sauerberg, Biggert, Johnson, Kirk, Manzullo, Schock, Shimkus, Roskam? It seems that if Jim Thompson, Jim Edgar, George Ryan, Jim Ryan, Judy Baar Topinka, Bob Kjellander, etc. speak, they would denounce conservatives and denounce conservatism and call for taking all the social planks out of the IRP platform. But wait, conservatives are the base of the IRP and the those social planks are what distinguish the IRP from the Illinois Democrat Party. Will those who want to return to direct election of IRP State Central Committee members be allowed to speak? - Dave Diersen

-- Congressman Peter Roskam puts auto executives on the spot - Josh Singer (DIERSEN: To some extent, all countries, all organizations, all companies, all groups, and all individuals are guilty of creating their own problems. However, it is a tremendously strong action to take to publicly charge someone with creating their own problems. By calling for the Big Three auto executives to "cut their salaries to $1," Roskam publicly charged them with being 99+% guilty of creating the Big Three's problems. Of course, sadly, all the others who are guilty of creating the Big Three's problems, including all those who hate America and want to turn America's auto industry over to foreigners, were overjoyed that Roskam did that. Who advised Roskam to demonize and denigrate the Big Three auto executives by calling for them to "cut their salaries to $1?" Was it the same advisor who told Roskam's predecessor, Henry Hyde, to say that his extramarital affair when he was 41 years old was a "youthful indiscretion?" Was it Japanese auto executives who say that they would "fall on their sword" before asking for a loan guarantee?)

(THE ARTICLE: Garnering national media attention for questioning Big Three automobile executives during a meeting about a proposed government bailout, U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, R-6th, said that he just asked a "simple question." Roskam, who sits on the House Financial Services Committee, asked Big Three auto executives if they would be willing to cut their salaries to $1 given their request for taxpayer assistance. While many representatives grilled the CEOs during the Nov. 19 hearing about a proposed $25 billion auto industry bailout, responses to Roskam's question -- only Chrysler CEO Robert Nardelli answered yes -- were picked up by television stations and newspapers across the country. General consensus held that the auto executives lacked a clear plan of how to use the government aid, so Congress delayed a vote on the bailout. Roskam said other issues, such as a lack of transparency, contributed to the decision. "Part of it was the cavalier nature of the auto industry," said the Wheaton Republican, adding executives were not forthcoming with fourth-quarter projections and based forecasts that the auto market would rebound on the assumption that it has already bottomed. The government has already approved $700 billion to rescue the finance industry. Roskam, who opposed both bailout packages, said leaders have used "audible plays" to decide how to use those funds, instead of a steady plan. He acknowledged problems caused by giving large amounts of taxpayer money to corporations at a time when many are struggling. "It becomes a situation of who do you say no to," Roskam said.)
-- Why did locals go for Obama? - Nancy J. Thorner, Lake Bluff
http://www.pioneerlocal.com/lakeforest/news/forum/1300531,Lf-letters-112608-s1.article
(THE LETTER: As Chicago's "favorite son", it was not surprising that Barack Obama received 62 percent of the vote in Illinois to McCain's 37 percent. Nevertheless, it was disconcerting to discover that 13 of the 21 precincts in Shields Township, which covers all of Lake Bluff and most of Lake Forest, went for Obama, including my own Precinct 240 in Lake Bluff. Only in Lake Forest did voters residing in Precincts 248 through 255 favor McCain over Obama. How did this happen? This is not a center-left country. Republicans in Congress did stray during their six years as Majority Party from 2000-2006. They forgot about limited government and went on a spending spree with taxpayers money. Democrats, however, during the same time period wanted to spend millions more. Damaging to the Republican Party was that for eight long years the Bush Administration was branded by the mainstream media and sold to the public as an administration that couldn't shoot straight and whose policies made other nations hate us. Also undermining the Bush Administration were powerful, unelected liberal bureaucrats in the Departments of Defense and State and the CIA who interfered with the Administration's defense and security policies (The Failure Factory by Bill Gertz is a must read.). But it was the October surprise, the economic meltdown, that made defense a non-issue, McCain's strong point, and the economy the dominant issue. Little credit was given to President Bush for keeping this nation safe and well along the road toward victory in Iraq. The public placed blame for the economic meltdown on Republicans, despite the role of prominent Democrats in creating the sub-prime mortgage crisis by their refusal to reform Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Meanwhile Obama was packaged and presented to the public as a centrist, despite his leftist background and lack of experience, without vetting and with little criticism, as one who could save this nation after eight years of a failed George W. Bush presidency. Although it is impossible to foretell what will happen in an Obama Administration, it is a given that it will bring Americans more government, debt and taxation. Democrats seem to forget that government doesn't know how to make money, it can only spend it, and that wealth is created from the top down. Already announced is that president-elect Obama plans to rescind on Day One many of Bush's executive orders, replacing them with job-and-growth killing environmental executive orders which would bankrupt the coal industry and cause domestic energy production to shrivel away. Front and center over the next several years is whether this nation will remain a beacon of hope and freedom for people the world over or will it go the way of Socialistic Europe where culture has been eroded by high tax burdens, big government control, welfare rolls exploding, churches becoming empty, and national defense as an after thought? Future generations of Americans will have to live with whatever Obama's "change we can believe in" might prove to be, voted in by a majority of Americans on Nov. 4, 2008, even here in Shields Township. May history be kind and may God look favorably upon America as Americans usher in "Obamaland" on Jan. 20.)
