Why are Republican supposed to provide detailed plans for healthcare reform, but it’s somehow OK for Democrats to run on “mend it, don’t end it?”
Gawd, we really are the stupid party. Once again, Republicans are attempting to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory; responding to artificial bleats from the MSM, and Democrats over what the GOP will do about Obamacare. Obamacare IS the central, dominant issue in this campaign, as it was in 2010, when voters handed Democrats an electoral bitch-slap for ramming Obamacare through Congress.

Fecklessness has its rewards: Barack Obama will be the next UN Secretary General
Reading the news that the US was preparing to cede control of the internet to “the world community,” a.k.a. Red China, Russia, Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, et al, was at first a head-scratcher. Why? What’s Obama doing? It makes no sense. He’ll piss off even a lot of Democrats. He’s not THAT stupid. That was soon followed by the “AHA!!!!” moment. Now it | Read More »
The “Gimli Glider”: Lessons applicable to both Malaysian Air and Obamacare
We continue to wonder how, in this day and age, a modern commercial airplane could just somehow vanish? 30 years ago, an Air Canada 767 managed to somehow run out of fuel at 41,000 feet. Only the superb skill of the pilot, who was able to glide the plane to a safe landing at an abandoned Canadian forces base, averted disaster. For those interested in | Read More »
Kathleen Sebelius: “Lies, damned lies, and statistics”
Mark Twain would have just loved Obamacare, and likely swooned over Kathleen Sebelius. If anything would have proved the accuracy of his observation that “there are three kinds of lies: ‘lies, damned dies, and statistics,’ ” it’s the delusional numbers that occasionally emanate from her office regarding the “progress” of Obamacare enrollments to date. We’ve just been told that “enrollments” in Obamacare “surged” to 4.2 | Read More »
Whoa!! Pat Caddell channels Erick Erickson at CPAC, and other observations.
Don’t know how many of you caught Pat Caddell’s address at CPAC, but it was fascinating. He excoritated the GOPe, the money men, the Roves in our midst. And then he went after Boehner. He all but called for the House GOP caucus to toss him overboard. Powerful stuff. Note: I’ve looked for a video of Caddell’s talk, but couldn’t find a link. If anyone | Read More »
If she runs, how does Hillary avoid the Obamacare quagmire in 2016? Is she doomed?
Obama continues to kick the Obamacare can down the road, in a last ditch effort to save control of the Senate. It probably won’t work, and he’ll be forced to spend the last two years of his administration dealing with a GOP controlled Congress, who, if they’re smart, ( I know, I know, spare me the snide comments) will send him a bill every week to | Read More »
If Hillary is the Democrat nominee, who might her VP be? And would it have to be a black or Latino?
The speculation about Hillary continues. Her supporters are attempting to make her nomination seem inevitable ( again) And we all know how that turned out last time. She’s raising gazillions for the campaign, yet she hasn’t announced. Many think she won’t run, for a variety of reasons. I’m of that persuasion, and laid out my reasons why in an earlier diary: http://www.redstate.com/gawken/2014/01/17/what-if-hillary-doesnt-run/ For a great | Read More »
The Supreme Court is failing to uphold the Constitution: Have Obama and the left found a near fatal flaw in the Framer’s blueprint?
Note: I am not a lawyer, let alone a constitutional scholar. I am, however, an avid student of our nation’s history, and I do not understand what is happening within the federal court system today. I post this diary more to pose questions, and in the hope that those here more learned in these matters will comment. In early 1952, the United Steelworkers of America | Read More »
Senate Conservatives Fund calls for Boehner’s ouster next year. WHY WAIT? ( and exactly how does one take down the Speaker?)
In the wake of yesterday’s complete cave to the Democrats, in passing a clean debt-ceiling bill, the Senate Conservatives Funds has said that Boehner must go. Matt Hoskins, the groups’ executive director, said that Republicans should block him from the position at the beginning of the next Congress. To which point I would like to ask: WHY WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT CONGRESS? The reasons for | Read More »
OK, let’s pass immigration reform now, but delay implementing it until Chuckie Schumer leaves office
When I first heard this absurd proposal, I thought that some news outlet had somehow picked up a piece from the Onion, and thinking it was for real, ran with it. After all, we’d just spent the past week pondering Tom Sizemore’s “revelation” of a year-long affair between Bill Clinton and Elizabeth Hurley, so Schumer’s idea, by comparison, had a ring of plausibility. The fact | Read More »
