Mitt Romney’s Unserious 3rd Party Recruitment Drive
Mitt Romney was not serious about finding a 3rd Party candidate. Or maybe he is still afflicted with the same terminal lack of imagination and audacity that doomed his 2012 Presidential run. Because there is no way a serious examination of the prospect would lead anyone to conclude that the three best options for a third party run are Mitt Romney, an until recently cancer-stricken | Read More »
Need Someone Pre-Vetted, Automatically Credible and Ready on Day One? Then We Need A General or Admiral.
The Republican National Convention begins on July 18, 2016. I’m with Jim Geraghty here in imagining this scenario, Picture it: It’s July, and Republicans are gathering in Cleveland. The polls still look more like the most recent CNN one – Hillary ahead by 13 – than the most recent Rasmussen one – Trump ahead by 2. Trump remains the same man he’s been all along | Read More »

The aim is to have as many people as possible, especially registered Republicans to print, sign, get others to sign and forward | Read More »
#CharacterMatters: A Petition Drive To Deny Trump The Nomination – No Matter What.
Anyone with any small amount of common sense – which neatly excludes Trump supporters – knows that having Donald Trump at the top of the ticket means wholesale carnage in downballot races across the country as millions of previously disengaged voters would go to the polls to make sure his little fingers never get close to the nuclear launch codes. This means a President Hillary | Read More »
Trump Voters Should Be Disrespected. They Deserve It.
We have heard the refrain numerous times from Trump supporting idiots (pardon the redundancy); if he gets to the convention with the highest number of delegates, he should be given the nomination … or we would be disrespecting the decision of the voters. My response is two-fold. First, the delegates have no obligation to vote for Trump – on the contrary, as representatives, their first | Read More »
TO: Jay Cost – YouTubify your Storify
Dear Jay, Leon brought your excellent Twitter rant on Storify to our attention here at RedState. And as often happens, he is absolutely right – it is an absolute must read. Here’s the problem; a miniscule number of people are going to see it, when it needs to be seen by far more people. Which is why I am hoping you would consider putting it | Read More »
Dear Senator Cruz: It’s Time To Put On The Brass Knuckles
A few days ago, you had what has been termed a “throw down” with the once Conservative but now Trump fanboy Sean Hannity on his radio show. As usual, one can’t fault your performance on a forensic battle ground; you more than held your own – you got some good shots in at Donald Trump, and you were relentlessly on message all through, all while | Read More »
A Letter to Trump Supporters
Dear Trump Supporter, If you think your support for Donald Trump is “wiping the slate clean” or “punishing the establishment” and you think it is worth losing not just the Presidency, but the hard won majorities in the House, Senate, State Legislatures and Governors’ offices that we would certainly lose with Donald Trump at the top of the ticket, then you are beyond stupid.
