When the only tool you have is a hammer….
Somewhere Warren G. Harding and James Buchanan are knocking back a few as they toast their elevation another rung up the ladder. Barack Hussein Obama will almost certainly be viewed by honest historians as the emptiest suit ever to hold the office of President of the United States. Privately, even Jimmy Carter must be all smiles as he anticipates a position upgrade. Obama has but | Read More »
Hypocrisy, Obama be thy name
Over the past few months Barack Obama has scaled new heights of bloviating hypocrisy, joined in this by almost 100% of the political left. We have heard from time immemorial that while the Democrats just want to get the people’s work done, those dithering Republicans only want to focus on “social issues”. That same brand of hokum is pushed by the establishment wing of the | Read More »
Obama’s poll numbers contain a ghastly message of doom.
American’s don’t like to give up on their president. We want the president to succeed in a general way because we know if he fails the nation is harmed to some extent. In many respects Barack Obama is on a path blazed by James Earl Carter over three decades ago. More Americans “liked” Carter than thought he was doing a good job as President. That | Read More »
Obama Campaign’s Misguided Tactics or: Why Romney’s Record Doesn’t Matter
Recent attacks on Mitt Romney’s time at Bain Capital and now his record as Massachusetts Governor reveal the desperation of the Obama Campaign. As is the case with virtually all elections this one will will turn not on the challenger’s record but on the incumbent’s. With President Obama languishing well below 50% in almost every poll, his people know they have to change the direction | Read More »
BREAKING: Obama has lost Peggy Noonan!
Four years ago Peggy Noonan was one of a group of erstwhile Republicans who succumbed in varying degrees to the Cult of Obama. Noonan, who’s claim to fame rests entirely on having written some very good speeches for President Reagan, also saw fit to join in the general trashing of Sarah Palin in her newly assumed position of “thinking conservative”. Now after three years of | Read More »
New Gallup numbers show Obama is weak.
The mass media continues to do a great job of studiously ignoring Barack Obama’s pervasive weakness in this year’s election. Aiding and abetting the media are establishment Republicans who with purple faces and wagging fingers assure us that only Mitt Romney is “electable”. To them I say “Hogwash”. The fact is that President Obama is in a historically weak position. Numbers released by Gallup yesterday | Read More »
Hitting the G Spot or; Gingrich & the Gender Gap (c)
Among the arguments being trotted out to induce fear of a Newt Gingrich nomination, the ghastly and gigantic Gender Gap (c) is being given prominent play in all the usual places. My first exposure to the dreaded Gender Gap (c) was back in the 80′s when the news media (with a little help from their friends in the Democrat Party) discovered that on average women | Read More »
A lot more conservative than Mitt Romney
“I don’t claim to be the perfect candidate I just claim to be a lot more conservative than Mitt Romney.” Newt Gingrich I am supporting Newt Gingrich for president. I have kept my options open till very recently. There were several candidates whom I could have supported enthusiastically. One by one they have either chosen not to run or have performed poorly in doing so. | Read More »
Reassessment from a non-Romney perspective
I’ve been an interested observer of presidential elections for most of my life. As a teenager I laid in bed with an AM radio pressed to my ear listening to the Kansas City Republican Convention as the roll was called and Ronald Reagan narrowly lost to Jerry Ford. The most important words in that paragraph are the last seven: “Ronald Reagan narrowly lost to Jerry | Read More »
Chris Christie shouldn’t emulate Woodrow Wilson
In just a few hours Gov. Christie will apparently make an announcement that he is running for president, or for the umpteenth time that he absolutely is NOT running for president. My prediction is that he will not run. My reasons are as follows: 1. Christie is not a power mad egotist. He has young children and is on the record expressing concern for them | Read More »
