    Forget the Dec 6th runoff; Landrieu is running for 2016

    Other than having the same color hair as Cameron Diaz, for Louisiana voters, this year there is definitely NOTHING about Mary that appeals to them. Yet Landrieu is running an aggressive (actually a dirty campaign) in the run-off against . The big question is why? She’s going to lose, and big.  Her one hope was that control of the Senate might hang on the outcome. | Read More »

    Veterans Day open thread

    Today is Veterans Day.  It is celebrated on November 11th, to commemorate the end of WW I. The holiday has changed greatly over the years. Now, there is nary a parade, and the paper poppies are hardly ever seen any more. Yet America does have a new found appreciation, and respect for its Veterans, especially those of the wars in the Middle East. This is | Read More »

    OMG!!! Is McConnell actually going to let a senile old fool, Thad Cochran, chair the Appropriations committee?

    With Republicans taking control of the Senate, and increasing the size of their caucus by 20%, the biannual game of musical committee chairs ( and membership) just got a whole lot more interesting. Let’s take a close look at the Senate Appropriations committee. The current GOP members are: ( ranking member) Lindsay Graham Dan Coats   Shelby will take the chair of the Banking Committee, | Read More »

    A question for Dem senators: Why must Obama get congressional approval for 1,500 more troops to Iraq, but it’s OK for him to amnesty millions by executive order?

    Friday afternoon, when Washington was still digesting the shellacking the Democrats had received on Tuesday, came word that Obama was sending 1,500 more troops to Iraq. It’s obvious why he is doing this. The news from Iraq is bad, and getting worse. Obama was told months ago by his generals that about 10,000 more troops were needed to stabilize the situation. He refused to send | Read More »

    Congratulations to Ken Buck: Nice guys DO finish first!!!

    Amid all the really good news from Tuesday, one happy result hasn’t gotten all that much attention: Ken Buck is the newly elected Representative from the 4th District of Colorado! Nice guys do finish first! And there’s an extra special joy in Buck’s win. Buck, who is a solid conservative, a strong voice for the unborn,  and a Tea Party favorite, entered the GOP primary | Read More »

    Three obvious, and effective strategies the GOP can use to oppose Obama’s executive orders on amnesty

    Obama made it clear at his press conference Wednesday, the day after he received his “ass-whupping” from the voters, that he intends to proceed with his plan to circumvent the Constitution and amnesty millions of illegals. But not until sometime in December. Could it be he won’t issue the EO until after December 6th, which coincidentally just happens to be the date of the Louisiana | Read More »

    If Obama pushes ahead with amnesty via executive order, it will make it impossible for Hillary ( or any Democrat) to win in 2016

    I was really looking forward to savoring last night’s BIG win..but two stories this morning have started the wheels turning: “No Obama pivot after  midterms..” Obama will push forward with unilateral amnesty. http://www.politico.com/story/2014/11/2014-elections-barack-obama-112564.html?hp=f3 And  (D-Mexico) says that Obama must enact immigration reform…Latinos won’t wait any longer. Several Democrat myths were exploded last night: 1. They said that Obama wasn’t on the ballot. He was. Big time. | Read More »

    What do Barack Obama and Sammy Davis, Jr have in common, and how does it impact Hillary?

    The great Frank Sinatra  headlined at the  old Sands Hotel in Las Vegas for many years, during the heyday  of the “Rat Pack.” In 1966, “Sinatra at the Sands,” a LIVE recording was released. It is, simply put, superb. If you’ve never heard it, and enjoy the old standards, you’re in for a rare treat. One of the tracks is a twelve minute monologue by | Read More »

    Did Hillary just step into it , BIG TIME….. up to her cankles…

    Wonder why this little gem hasn’t gotten much more attention? BE PATIENT. IT WILL, SOON. BIG TIME!!! Breitbart has the video: Appearing Friday at a rally for Martha Coakley, (she who, not Wendy David, is running  THE ABSOLUTELY WORST CAMPAIGN EVER) Hillary dropped this little nugget: “Don’t let anybody tell you that businesses create jobs..” Oh, really? Pray tell us, m’lady..then who does? http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-TV/2014/10/24/Hillary-Dont-Let-Anybody-Tell-You-That-Businesses-Create-Jobs Hillary | Read More »

    Wendy Davis is NOT running the worst campaign ever.

    Many wise persons here at Red State have suggested often that Wendy Davis is running the WORST CAMPAIGN EVER.  And yes, it’s true, she’s doing an admirably good (bad?) job of it.  From the wheelchair bicycle ad, to the now-last-minute act of desperation “hail Mary”: the all-out embrace of the increasingly unpopular Obama; Davis and her campaign staff are truly putting on a how-not-to-do-it clinic. | Read More »
