“Blast” from the past: Mother Nature ends John V. Lindsay’s political career. Now, Sandy takes down Bloomberg,
Mayor Bloomberg couldn’t get elected dogcatcher now. His political future, such as it was, is OVER. Sandy has seen to that. And rest assured, Bloomberg had harbored hopes of a presidential run, as an Independent-Democrat in 2016. There was a plausible scenario for him, like this: Obama wins a second term (hence, the mayor’s late endorsement) The economy continues to tank, because of Obama’s policies. | Read More »
Someone’s gonna have some serious ‘splainin’ to do, next Wednesday. OK, let’s see if we have this straight. In Indiana, which will comfortably vote for Mitt Romney, and which will overwhelmingly elect social conservative Mike Pence to the statehouse, the Howey Politics poll gives Democrat Joe Donnelly an ELEVEN POINT lead over Richard Mourdock. This is supposedly because of comments that Mourdock made 10 days | Read More »
Sandy has already produced one clear political winner.
Politics, like nature, abhors a vacuum. Events occur, and individuals find themselves unexpectedly front and center. A select few rise to the occasion, indeed, some succeed beyond all expectations, and others are found lacking, and disappear into the dustbin of history. Pop quiz for all you political junkies out there: Name the governor of Louisiana during Katrina. See, told you so. Most can remember the | Read More »
Q: What’s the difference between “Al-Qaeda is on the run,” and “Mission Accomplished”
The prize for thesnarkiest answer is a one year subscription to the print edition of Newsweek.
What will the Democrats do with three ( count ‘em…. THREE!!! ) former presidents running amok with conflicting agendas?
Whatever one thinks of George Bush, when his term was up he went home to Texas, wrote his book, and has pretty much stayed out of the political limelight. A very classy end to a career of public service. I was just reading that Jimmy Carter, a few hours before tonight’s presidential debate on foreign affairs begins, has arrived in Jerusalem, and immediately stepped in | Read More »
Will Joe Manchin cross the aisle to give the GOP control of the Senate?
Like many here on RS, I’ve been very happy with Mitt’s recent surge in the polls. And like many more here, I’ve been sweating out what will happen in the Senate. I’m optimistic, and think that a mini-wave of sorts is forming, and we will see the GOP end up with the majority, possible 52-53 seats. For control, the GOP needs 50 seats ( Ryan’s | Read More »
No reasonably sane person would want to ask a question at Tuesday’s debate; so then, why are we letting “idiots” question the candidates?
I’m going to make a bold prediction here; that tomorrow night will be the last time we see the Town Hall format used in a presidential debate. George Will correctly states that debates have become a “quasi-constitutional” electoral requirement. As well they should be. But NOT this Town Hall format. It’s a recipe for disaster, and we are likely to witness this tomorrow night. The | Read More »
Does anyone have information on Ambassador Stevens’ funeral?
It suddenly struck me that I have seen absolutely nothing in the media about a funeral service for Ambassador Stevens. Not even an announcement. Has one occurred. We all witnessed the four caskets returning home, accompanied by speeches from Obama and Clinton ( yet again attempting to lay blame for their deaths on the YouTube video.) Since then, absolute silence. I would have expected that | Read More »
Joe Biden channels “Hogan’s Heroes” Sgt. Schultz on Benghazi: “I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!”
Some Red Staters will recall “Hogan’s Heroes,” the 60’s TV comedy set in a German POW camp during WW II. The bumbling, stumbling, fumbling guard, Sgt. Hanz Schultz is the most iconic character from the series, and during the VP debate, Joe Biden channeled the good sergeant in an effort to distance himself, and Obama, from the fast growing scandal about the utter lack of | Read More »
The upcoming Democrat “war on women”, or, parceling out the blame for Obama’s impending defeat
The day after the election, expect to see a real “war on women” break out in the MSM and the liberal chattering classes. Somebody has to take the blame, to be the fall-guys ( oopsie, my bad…but “fall-girls” doesn’t work, and “fall-persons” sounds like people who like to take weekend drives in New England to watch the leaves change colors.) and it appears that this | Read More »
