Obama solves America’s Energy crises

    Obama has a game plan to solve USA’s energy problem.It is called the 240% solution.Obama will rely heavily on solar power and wind which are currently very expensive generators of energy. The brand new Solar One plant southwest of Las Vegas produces energy at 240% times the current market price of energy. It is the most efficient solar power plant in the world. I guess | Read More »

    Gravitas? (Part Deux)

    In the world of former Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Joe Biden, the Constitution doesn’t mean what it explicitly and clearly says it means.

    Still think that Joe Biden is a serious student of foreign and national security policy?

    Frank Rich Doesn’t Deserve A Job Writing For A Major Newspaper

    LATimes Brooks Thinks Russia/Georgia War is Funny

    The L.A. Times’ Rosa Brooks has done it again, taken a serious subject and made an uninformed romp of it.

    Forced Unionism at UPS Being Fought

    The Biden Factor

    Miscellaneous Morning Tidbits

    Now that the Dem Veepstakes are resolved, on to the Republicans. Here’s what I can tell you.Joe Lieberman’s (I-CN) star has burned out on the veep spot.

Expect Lieberman to be a member of the Cabinet, letting Republican Governor Jodi Rell appoint his successor.Mitt Romney’s | Read More »

    A Very Good Introduction Video for John Kasich

    I found a great introduction video for John Kasich as a professional speaker that only had 107 views, so I thought I would share it on Redstate.I don’t think there’s a better way to introduce John Kasich as a possible Vice Presidential candidate than this video.

    The Psychology and Timing of McCain’s pick

    McCain has gone on record that he will announce his VP the day after Obama’s big speech. To me, this implies he is not going to make a convetional choice (sorry Mitt Romney). He wants to steal Obama’s spotlight but he has to be careful about throwing away what should be a big newday for him. If he makes a generic safe choice the media | Read More »
