“The White House’s media management practices have drawn quiet criticism from journalists in the past few weeks.”
Today is the 298th day since Opansy’ last unscripted attempt at a real press conference at the White House. And this has “drawn quiet criticism from journalists”! Wow! Such courage from the Fourth Estate. Go here for the “BIG SCOOP” from the The Washington Post. Make sure you read the first comment. For background, go here. Oh, and if you can, please get inside the | Read More »

In the end, 2,101 registered Republicans (60 per cent plus 1 of the 3,500 delegates at the nominating convention) decided whether incumbent Republican Sen. Bob Bennett would enjoy the privilege of a chance to be elected on the primary or general election ballot. It’s been reported in the press by one of the Utah Republican Party nominating convention delegates that about 75,000 registered Republicans bothered | Read More »

J.D. Hayworth “gets it” re the real battle for the soul of the Party
I just received the following e-mail from J.D. Hayworth’s campaign for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sen. John McCain (I have added some bolding): JD Urges His Supporters to Become Precinct Committeemen You have worked so hard for my campaign…I want to say “thank you!” Thousands of volunteers have shown their support in time, efforts and donations to the J.D. Hayworth campaign to | Read More »
April 27, 2010: Day 279 of Opansy’s ducking the White House Press Corps
April 27, 2010 — Opansy has not had a press conference since last July 22. That is 279 days since he said the Cambridge police “acted stupidly.” Which lead to the ridiculous “Beer Summit.” 279 days since the man who supposedly represents all the people has made himself available for questions from a press corps that, theoretically, is supposed to represent the interests of all | Read More »
Missing from Sen. McCain’s strategy to defeat the Dems: the word “fight”
April 24, 2010 – Today at a town hall meeting in Casa Grande, Arizona, where John McCain was unveiling his and Sen. Kyl’s ten-point plan (better late than never) for securing the Arizona/Mexico border, I got to ask him the first question, which went something like this: Sen. McCain, you said yesterday at a press conference, in response to President Obama’s criticism of the enactment | Read More »
Utah Tea Party: We’ve Taken Over the State GOP
Hat tip to Be John Galt: Newsmax reports that the “tea partiers” and grass roots conservatives in Utah claim to have enough delegates within the Republican Party to effectively “take it over” at the upcoming May 8 convention. In a surprising development that sets the stage for a dramatic political showdown, tea party and grass-roots conservatives tell Newsmax they have seized control of Utah’s GOP | Read More »
Boxer’s primary challenger: “Obama to Save Boxer Like He Saved Corzine!”
If you enjoy watching Debtocrats bad mouth each other, you’ll enjoy this from Mickey Kaus, who is challenging Sen. Babs Boxer in the Debtocrat primary in California (hat tip to RealClearPolitics): Obama to Save Boxer Like He Saved Corzine! And, again, yesterday Opansy had to deal with, perhaps, REAL “tea baggers” at a DNC fundraiser for Babs: Oh, the horror of having to deal with | Read More »
Ohio Tea Partiers shaking up the Ohio GOP by getting INSIDE it.
As I’ve advocated here occasionally (;-)), conservatives become politically relevant when they venture INTO the Republican Party and become “card carrying members” of it — precinct committeemen — so they can actually vote for the Party leadership and, by attending their monthly local Party committee meetings, be in the BEST position to evaluate the various candidates running in primary elections. Well, it appears many conservatives | Read More »
Hostile Tea Bagger crowd heckles Obama over and over and over
No, wait, it was a DNC fundraiser for Sen. Barbara Boxer. You will enjoy the video (hat tip to Drudge and Real Clear Politics): www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2010/04/19/pro-gay_hecklers_repeatedly_interrupt_obama_at_dnc_fundraiser.html All that darn “hollering.” Didn’t Opansy look “presidential” through it all? Especially when he had to run away from the microphones to get Babs to help him? Pathetic. Things are starting to unravel for the man child president. Thank you. | Read More »
The Conservative Grievance Industry almost gets it right.
I have written here a few times about what a good friend of mine has called “The Conservative Grievance Industry.” Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, even Sen. Jim DeMint, and others, have written books ostensibly for the purpose of “saving America.” Indeed, that was the title of DeMint’s book. I’ve scoured those books, looking for concrete “how to” guides relating to the actual internal | Read More »
Meet Karen Cooper: “And you are my people!”
Prediction: Kelly O’Donnell will not be seeking out Karen Cooper for an interview, and this video clip will not be broadcast on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC or CNN. Challenge to you Redstaters who think you can make a video go “viral”: can you make this one go viral? I sure hope so! Thank you. ColdWarrior, PC Conservatives, UNITE! CHANGE the Party and the world by | Read More »
What’s the [precinct committeeman] count?
As you may know, I’ve been banging the drum here at Redstate (and elsewhere) for almost a year and half to get conservatives to get into the Republican Party as precinct committeemen. Thankfully, many of you have taken the necessary steps — you’ve found your local GOP committee meeting, have gone to the meetings, and have done what’s necessary in your state to become a | Read More »
The tea partiers in Tempe, AZ seem ready to do more
April 15, 2010 — I was at Tempe Diablo stadium this afternoon from 3 to 8 pm for the Tea Party sponsored by the Arizona chapter of Americans for Prosperity. The speakers at the Tea Party did not begin until 6 pm. I had three or four fellow conservative precinct committeemen helping and we were busy — even before the official start time — because | Read More »
Andrew Brietbart to SRLC: Get in the fight!
Andrew Breitbart delivered a good, short speech to the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. It’s just under 18 minutes long and well worth the time. He points out a few obvious things. The mainstream media is on the side of the Leftists. The Leftists declared war on America (“us”), America did not declare war on the Leftists. The Leftists accuse “us” of what they, actually, are | Read More »
What to DO? Asking the right question. (Hint: has something to do with being a PC.)
I watched Sean Hannity’s show tonight on Fox. There he was on the stage at the Minneapolis Convention Center with a crowd in the background. On stage with him were Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. He threw out a question to the crowd: “How many of you here are in the ‘Tea Party movement?’” The crowd roared. As some say, “Whoopdee effing doo.” Holding a | Read More »
“Asked how she feels about having voted for the president, Lewis said ‘I feel lied to, cheated and raped.’”
Gosh, some accurate, objective reporting for a change from CNN. Enjoy!: Disgruntled Democrats join the Tea Party Thank you. ColdWarrior Conservatives of the U.S., UNITE! Become Republican precinct committeemen. NOW! ——— American first, conservative second, Republican precinct committeeman by necessity. www.theprecinctproject.wordpress.com, so you can say, “I became a precinct committeeman before it was cool.” “[Primary e]lections have consequences, my friends.” — John McCain
Ode to a “high and mighty” Independent
My dad used to say, “You can attract more bees with a drop of honey than all the vinegar in the world.” Damn, I wish I had followed that advice more often. I’m going to try to do so here. That’s why I won’t name names. Someone posted here at Redstate recently, “Right now, independents appear to be increasingly disenchanted with the Dem’s job since | Read More »
Whew! Just finished getting my signatures to stand for election as a PC.
I am just worn out. Soaking in sweat. I really wore out the shoe leather. And my vocal cords are sore from all that talking, not to mention my fingers sore from pushing door bells and my knuckles sore from rapping on doors. No, not really. It took me 45 minutes to get the 15 signatures I needed for my Nomination Petition. (Actually, only 10 | Read More »
