Ranking the GOP Candidates by their Ability to Win the General Election
If you look on the surface, one might think that the polls indicate that Donald Trump is the best candidate to go up against the Democrats in the general election. As history has shown, the ability to get support within one’s own party is not always an indicator of ability to win in the general election. In fact, one can argue that either Rick Santorum | Read More »
Donald Trump is Solidifying a Democratic Victory in 2016
Let’s eliminate the possible third reason for Donald Trump’s candidacy. He’s not an idiot. He’s an extremely intelligent and skilled man who has seen much more success than failure in his life. As much as I would love to think that stupidity is the reason that he’s running, we all have to assume that it’s not really the case. That leaves two options. The first | Read More »
Donald Trump: The Weapon of Choice for Liberals
Supporters of Donald Trump for President find an appeal in his willingness to speak his mind as a DC-outsider. He speaks without fear and is charming in an obnoxious way. Many are even starting to believe that he has a chance to win the nomination.
The Silver Lining: Republicans can Call Marriage Equality a Non-Issue
It doesn’t matter what the Supreme Court ruled. We can expect mainstream media to ask the question of every GOP candidate whenever they get the chance. Whether it’s about the ruling, gay marriage in general, or what a candidate would do about marriage equality if they’re elected, they have an optional out. “The law of the land has been set and as President, I cannot | Read More »
Jeb isn’t Bush 3. He’s Romney 2.
I like Jeb Bush. I like Mitt Romney. I believe both men want what’s best for the country and they could really bridge gaps if they were ever given a chance in the White House. Unfortunately, neither has the ability to win for the very reason that many Republicans believe they can. Both are too moderate. The Republican Establishment continues to try to win by | Read More »
Why the Establishment Needs to Get Out of the Way this Time
It’s an endless cycle. Every election year, I preach the same message. It used to be through letters to the editor. Then, the blogosphere and social media came around and made things easier. Regardless of the venue, I can’t seem to get over the hump that the Republican establishment mounts every 2-4 years, but that won’t deter me from trying. We cannot put up another | Read More »
Even in Bi-Partisan Deal, Obama Botches it with Ego
The campaign is over. Barack Obama has already won the last election he will ever run. Why, then, did he use his speech about the potential for a fiscal cliff deal to take jabs at Congress in general and the Republicans in particular?
There Are Only Two Possibilities: Either the President was Incompetent or he Intentionally Misled America
There’s simply no way around it now. The Obama administration was aware early on that there were heavy weapons used and had no indication that the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneous protests gone awry. According to accounts provided by intelligence officials listening to the testimony of former CIA Director David Petraeus, “the CIA concluded early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack by definition, because | Read More »
The Two Stages of Obamacare Layoffs
…and so it begins. Reports are starting to flow in of employers laying off or planning to lay off employees. The mathematics behind ObamaCare is seen by many to be cost-prohibitive for business growth. For others, it’s downright dangerous and could cause businesses to shut down entirely. Las Vegas CEO Reportedly Fired 22 Workers Because Of Obama’s Reelection Applebee’s CEO Threatens To Fire Employees And | Read More »
Most Americans Seem Okay with Raising Taxes as Long as it’s Not Their Taxes
There seems to be a growing sentiment in the population that taxes are okay. The thought of raising taxes on the rich is arguably one of the primary reasons President Obama won re-election. Today’s America tends to accept an anti-business, semi-socialist mentality of redistribution of wealth in a way that is truly terrifying. Buzzwords like “fair share” filled the campaign and apparently made sense to | Read More »
