    GOP governors press Congress to pass stimulus bill

    Well, I guess there is one good thing this stimulus bill will do for republicans.  It will help us weed out the fake conservatives from the real conservatives.  No, not in Congress.  Rather, it is the republican GOVERNORS who are now pushing for the bill to pass.  You remember the governors, right?  They’re the ones we’re most likely going to have to choose from in | Read More »

    An example of how Bush doesn’t “get” fiscal discipline

    In the joint interview tonight with Bush41 and Bush43, Bush43 apparently tells Fox news that “the GOP should remain anti-tax and pro-military.”  If you read between the lines, you will see the biggest problem with the current administration.  When he says that we should remain “anti-tax” it tells me that the President just doesn’t understand the fiscal philosophy of conservatism.  Anti-tax is not it.  We’re | Read More »

    Sanjay Gupta for Surgeon General?

    Really?    Considering the job description of the Surgeon General is to “oversee the operations of the 6,000-member Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service”, I just don’t see how a neurosurgeon-turned-TV doctor is the best person to have that job.  How about someone with actual experience in the field of public health?   This is not anything against Sanjay Gupta.  I’m sure he’s | Read More »

    Mark Sanford is the future of the GOP

    This week, the republican governors named Mark Sanford the chairman of their association. Kudos to them for recognizing one of the few bright stars in the dark republican sky.

    Time for new leadership at the RNC

    As someone who does not think Newt Gingrich has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning a Presidential election but is a great leader who has a history of reform in the right direction, I believe that now is the time for Gingrich to take the reigns of the RNC. He has the ability to raise money, the talent to run a major organization, and | Read More »

    The opposition starts now

    So you’re disappointed in the election results? What are you going to do about it? We lost. Get over it. At least we don’t have people on our side claiming (falsely) that they are going to move to another country because their guy didn’t get elected. I guess that shows who the grown-ups vote for! So what can you do now that the election is | Read More »

    Government is not the solution to our problems

    As both candidates brag about wanting more regulation for Wall Street, how about a call from “we the people” for more regulation of government. This bailout nonsense has got to stop. I understand why they did it with Fannie and Freddie. It wasn’t because companies can’t be trusted, it was because the government screwed up with these two companies over the course of 75+ years. | Read More »

    According to factcheck.org, McCain DID vote with republicans on 90% of the issues in 2007. However, in 2001 he voted with the party only 67% of the time and in 2005 he voted with President Bush only 77% of the time. Meanwhile, Barack Obama voted with the President 40% of the time and has voted with senate democrats 97% of the time. To sum it | Read More »

    My rebuttal to Senator Obama

    Senator Obama, you gave a great speech tonight. You proved, once again, that you read a teleprompter much better than John McCain. The setting you gave it in proves that you believe you are destined to be president more than anyone has ever believed that about themselves. But when it came down to what you were actually saying, I would like to submit the following | Read More »

    Bill Clinton poses a hypothetical for Dem voters

    Today in Denver, Bill Clinton posed the following hypothetical question that has nothing at all to do with the current election (no, really… it doesn’t have anything to do with it… seriously!)
