1) So long as it's in the opposition, where should the Republican Party focus its energy?

I think the constitution is a good place to start Over the years judicial interpretations have overstepped their authority. Legislating from the bench leaves the congress an out so they can tell their constituents they had no recourse when of course they have it. The original intent of representatives was to be in Congress a short period of time and then to return home to a real job. This way they do not lose sight of who they represent. Limiting the increase of taxes in a time of troubled economic times is rediculous. I would like to see more common sense in our representatives. The Senate in particular seems more of a fraternity than individuals representing their state.

2) What is the most worrisome part of Barack Obama's presidency?

Obama's socalist tendencies and his constant campaigning away from Washington are very troubling. If he really cares for energy savings, he should stay home, talk to his Generals, read legislation and learn the job. He relies on the fringe for information and is either naive or has great disregard for the unique and can do qualities of the American people. How about a little encouragement. He is no Reagan.

3)There's been a lot of debate about the role that talk radio and cable news hosts should play on the right. Particularly controversial are Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly and Mark Levin. What do you think about these folks? Do they help the right or hurt it (or is it more complicated than that?) How should Republicans interact with them?

If it were not for talk radio and the limited TV channels and magazines honest enough to argue both sides, we would not get the whole story. It took weeks for any of the main media to even remark about Mr. Jones and other czars. I listen to NPR as well as talk radio and it is interesting what major stories NPR either leaves out or under reports.

4) One particularly fraught controversy pertains to race in America -- with the first black president in the White House, some conservatives have been criticized as racists for opposing him, and some on the right have accused the Obama Administration or its allies of racism or anti-white sentiments (for example, Sonja Sottomayor's "wise Latina" comment drew fire, as did the Skip Gates incident). As the right thinks about political strategy and policy, how should it approach matters of race?

Those are totally ad hominem abusive arguments. There are a number of conservative blacks I would be delighted to support. Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Allen West running for Congress, Alan Keyes, Michael Steele. How about Marco Rubio running for the Senate in Fla.
Dont forget it was the Republican Congress that passed Civil Rights when Al Gore's father and Bill Clinton's mentor Fulbright voted against it. This is a totally shameful and dishonest criticism.

5) Is there anything you observe locally, or that Republicans in your area of the country care about, that doesn't get sufficient attention in the national media conversation? If so tell me a bit about the issue, and the approach you think the right ought to take.

The double standard on reporting and criticism of Republicans and conservatives has become unbelievable. It seems that the majority of the media is state run, socailistic and has lost its objectivity-

6) Traditionally the Republican Party has been a coalition of religious conservatives, libertarians, fiscal conservatives, and national security conservatives. Is that alliance viable going forward? If so, what must be done to hold it together? If not, what alliance should the GOP try to build?

I think it is a viable coalition. We appreciate our individuality, liberty, and our willingness to debate issues. Unlike the present Democratic agenda, one is not allowed to waver or they will be punished. This is not the Democratic party of the past. I worked for conservative Democrats years ago and there is little resemblance to them (of course a few of them were those who voted against Civil rights as I said before) If the Democrats try to get votes by making folks dependent on you, rather than encouraging their independence, that is a sad state of affairs- I was not raised that way. I supported my mother when my dad died, went to work and night school as Geo Washington University and still had a good time.

I suggest you watch Fox, listen to Rush and others and appreciate their research and intelligence. Wake up America, we have a great country, a loyal military and unfortunately a number of soft, spoiled folks.

7) Is there anything I didn't ask about that you'd like the media or the country as a whole to know?
