The question we must ask ourselves: are the majority of GOP women in fact secretly pro-choice?
All during this campaign, those of us on the right snickered at, and even dismissed the Democrats “war-on-women” campaign. Sandra Fluke? Are they kidding? Yet the numbers may suggest that in direct refutation of what we have been told, that nationwide the pro-life movement is gaining strength; it may well be that in the innermost depths of their souls, and in the voting booths, a | Read More »
Open thread: Where do we go now with sequestration, the debt ceiling limit, and Obamacare?
So, what happens next? Is Obamacare now inevitable? What should the GOP do in the lame duck? Since the make-up of the next Congress is basically the same, why kick the can down the road with another “temporary fix?” Let’s have the debate now. What do others here think should happen?
Note sure what is means, but this year, not ONE famous person threatened ( promised?) to move to Europe if Obama loses
It may not be as significant as the “Redskin rule,” but it surely must mean something. I just realized that this election, for the first time as far back as I can remember, not one famously liberal person publicly vowed to leave the country if Obama loses. The left has long been noted for publicly displaying its disconnect from reality, ever since Pauline Kael remarked | Read More »
Not that we need it, but here’s one more really important reason to defeat Obama on Tuesday.
The Baroness Thatcher, beloved of conservatives worldwide as “The Iron Lady”, celebrated her 87th birthday on Oct. 13th. Frail, and in declining health, one must consider the likelihood that this will be the last US presidential election that she witnesses. The idea of Joe Biden representing the United States at her funeral is, at best, unpalatable, at worst…. And while speaking of the “special relationship” | Read More »
“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 »
