On Sunday, while being interviewed by Democratic operative Candy Crowley on CNN’s State of the Union, Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY) – Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was happy enough to enlighten us of his belief – no doubt shared by his fellow Democrats on Capitol Hill, that a “significant extent” of the Republican party base is “animated by racism.” Of course, he made | Read More »
Why Democrats Really Oppose Voter ID …
The Left’s arguments against voter ID are fundamentally dishonest, and at their core, intensely racist. At the core of it, the risible implicit argument the NAACP and every single liberal is presenting here – and they are largely getting away with it – is that it is unreasonable to expect an African American, simply by virtue of the color of his or her skin, to | Read More »
Another Reason Mitt Romney Lost: He Had A Full Blown Idiot (Stuart Stevens) Running His Campaign.
Sometime before Election Day, before the debates, people already knew Stuart Stevens and his team were in over their heads. From the utter fiasco of Romney’s convention speech, which he stripped down to a thin gruel of bland forgettable pablum (and of course, stripped of any mention of America’s servicemen and women abroad), throwing aside Bush’s micro-targetting programmed wholesale, allowing his Hollywood aspirations to make | Read More »
It’s January 26th, 2013 – And I’m The New Chairman of the Republican National Committee (I)

Two Mistakes The Romney Campaign Made.
I understand everyone is upset about last night, and therefore I understand the lashing out. However, we need to keep things in perspective and not throw blame willy-nilly simply to vent our frustrations. Personally, I believe Romney ran a credible race. But his Campaign made two major mistakes – one in the last week, and one from the very beginning of his campaign. In the | Read More »
Romney Can Wrap This Race Up Right Now … And Most Importantly, Help People In Need.
Remember all the chortling and eye-rolling at Romney on MSNBC for collecting food, clothing and other stuff in Ohio for victims of Sandy? Andrea Mitchell, Martin Bashir and their guests were all agog at Romney’s classlessness for not restricting himself to just blood and money for the Red Cross. Apparently, the only aid agency in America is the American Red Cross. Well, as it turns | Read More »
The Debates: The Obama Campaign Has Already Been Given The Questions … And Other Things Romney Should Keep In Mind

Facts, Figures, Graphs & Charts: Romney is a Businessman … He should run like one.
The conventional wisdom is that the Romney Campaign squandered the opportunity presented by the National Convention by going the anodyne punch-pulling route, not to mention the scheduling error of putting Clint Eastwood in prime time instead of the numerous men and women who took to the podium and told their stories about the Mitt Romney they knew that is quite different from the Mitt Romney | Read More »
