Texas Conservatives: Here’s an idea; run Rafael Cruz in the primary against Cornyn
John Cornyn seems to be getting nervous. Perhaps he’s watching the challenges being mounted against Lindsey Graham, and noting the retirement of several GOP senators, who decided to forgo very difficult primary races. In any case, Cornyn is attempting to convince the good people of Texas that he is, in fact, a staunch, strong, reliable conservative. Good luck with that. He has yet to draw | Read More »
FYI, Politico profiles Dana Loesch: “Not Afraid to Fire Away”
I thought Red Staters might find Politico’s profile of our own regular contributor, Dana Loesch of interest: http://www.politico.com/story/2013/10/dana-loesch-profile-97915.html I guess she’s starting to: a) make a name for herself b) piss off people BTW, I learned that she studied ballet for 17 years. So maybe she and Rahm Emanuel should sit down and figure out how to end the shutdown?
A winning strategy for the shutdown: just “rebrand it” call; it something else.
The worlds of advertising and public relations have shown that there are several strategies that the GOP can employ to challenge the constant opprobrium they are receiving in the MSM due to the shutdown. The first is “rebranding.” If you have a product or name that isn’t doing well in the marketplace, just give it a new name. One successful example can be found in | Read More »
There are not enough “pinocchios” in the entire universe to do justice to Obama’s comments today. Goebbels and Hitler would be proud.
I watched Obama’s comments today about the government shutdown, and it is absolutely staggering, the sheer depth of the lying, the arrogance that oozes through the screen. There are not enough pinocchios in the entire universe to begin to dissect his remarks. I will l leave that to others. But one comment especially jumped out, and it is valuable to analyze, and understand, for it | Read More »
Sign up here to be Lindsey Graham’s “enemy for life.” ( Trey Gowdy..are you paying attention??)
Well, well, well……. Seems like old Lindsey’s getting his knickers all twisted up. Faced with growing opposition at home, including three already announced primary opponents, the senator is instead doubling-down; blasting Ted Cruz and Mike Lee, and saying that anyone who causes a government shutdown will be his “enemy for life.” His use of the word “enemy” is rather curious, BTW…but that’s for another time. | Read More »
It is time for Trey Gowdy to step up, do the “right” thing, and enter the primary against Lindsey Graham. It is time to “cleanse the temple.”
The battle for the hearts and minds of the Republican Party in Congress is heating up. The just-completed shameless display staged by RINOs and so-called establishment Republicans; their total failure to support the efforts of Ted Cruz to defund Obamacare; their willingness, nay, eagerness, to attack conservatives, as opposed to fighting Obama’s agenda – it clearly shows that we have a truly Herculean task ahead | Read More »
What’s the story with the lone House Republican, VA’s Scott Rigell, who voted against defunding Obamacare?
The House just voted to defund Obamacare, by a nearly straight-line party vote. Two Democrats voted with the GOP majority. One of those is Utah’s Jim Matheson. There are two words that readily explain his vote: MIA LOVE. He narrowly beat her in 2012, and she’s running hard again for the seat. I assume that the other Democrat apostate, NC’s Mike McIntyre, is attempting to | Read More »
A Tale of Two Comments: Obama on Benghazi, and on the Navy Yard shooting..
Wow!! Talk about a tone-deaf White House. Apparently nobody realized the dissonance that can be created. But I guess it’s harder and harder to pen trite, banal phrases bereft of any semblance of the truth. Obama, 9/16/2012: As the remains of the 4 Americans killed at Benghazi returned home: “…We will bring to justice those who took them from us…..” Obama, 9/16/2013: comments | Read More »
The implications of the GOP failure to defund Obamacare: long term, it could be a really good thing
It appears now that the GOP leadership in Congress lacks the cojones to defund Obamacare if it requires shutting down the government to do so. They are paralyzed by the fear that the voters will blame them for the shutdown, and then toss them out of office. Erick describes their behavior as “head pats and seal slaps.” True, but for me it’s a far more | Read More »
Who will remain in power longer: Assad or Boehner?
Events in and around Syria, and the proposed strike continue to unfold like a classic British farce. It’s going somewhere, but right now the audience hasn’t a clue as to the denouement. But if we pick at a few threads among multitude, there are indeed some interesting data points to examine: 1. Assad is evil. After happily slaughtering over a hundred thousand Syrians, including many | Read More »
