John Hoeven for President 2012 …
If a brokered convention is our only hope … then we need to; Get united around someone. Convince him (or her) to throw his hat in. Help him win some of the Primaries he can still qualify for … … and hopefully he would have gathered the support he’ll need to make him a viable choice for the nomination by the time we get to | Read More »
Rick Perry for President: A Post-Mortem
Why is Rick Perry out of the race for the Republican nomination for President of the United States? Because the man and his Campaign messed up. Bad. He had the opportunity to introduce himself to the nation that any candidate would give his right arm for and he flubbed it. It was like watching a slow-motion trainwreck. Worse is that it was not the media’s | Read More »
It’s 2016, and President Willard Mitt Romney …
I’m curious. There’s a lot of people who are absolutely discombobulated at the thought of Mitt Romney winning the nomination (as it looks like he’s going to do). Some are distressed at the thought because they’re positively convinced that Romney simply cannot win against Obama, and others are even more distraught because they are convinced that he could actually win and end up being inaugurated | Read More »
TO: Gov. John Kasich & The Ohio Republican Party – WATCH THIS.
The Baroness Margaret Thatcher had a saying; “First you win the argument, then you win the vote.” This is how you win the argument. Let me spell it out; get a bunch of your statisticians and Think Tank (e.g. The Buckeye Institute) folks, have them sit down with a bunch of Adobe Flash animators (heck, hire the same folks the MacIver Institute and AFP | Read More »
Rick Perry: Some Debate Advice …
Rick Perry needs to figure out that his problem is not Mitt Romney. If all he’s going to do from now at the debates is attack one particular individual (and that individual is not Obama but a fellow Republican), then it’s all smooth-sailing to also-ran status no matter how many excellent plans he rolls out or how often he makes his fan swoon by raining | Read More »
Rick Perry: The Problem …
Not even Rick Perry’s most passionate supporters can deny that his performance in the last three debates were anything but triumphs – and even if they refuse to admit it, the entire world is seeing it in the polls. The fact of the matter is that he got progressively worse during each debate and from one debate to the next. Frankly, he needs to get | Read More »
Why Rick Perry should be our guy for 2012.
This is not to say that none of the folks currently running have no chance of winning; if you run a good enough campaign – if your campaign is flexible, aggressive, focused, disciplined, anyone can win. One of the many lessons I’ve learned from the fiasco of 2008 is that the a priori declaration that Candidate X and only Candidate X can win an election | Read More »
Why I’d Pick Michael Williams Over Ted Cruz
First of all, both Ted Cruz and Michael Williams would make wonderful Senators and I’ll just as enthusiastically back either one if he wins the nod when the (Primary) votes are counted. That said, and maybe my reasoning for this is not “Conservatively Correct” but I would recommend Michael Williams for everyone’s consideration before Ted Cruz – who is still young enough to go for | Read More »
The Proper Response To Liberal “Blood-Libel” Faux-Outrage UPDATE: Note to Erick
There is an unfortunate tendency by Conservatives, particularly on TV, to acquiesce – sometimes without really being conscious of it – to false premises put to them by liberals, either simply for the sake of argument so they can move on or just simply because they want to get along. An example is Michael Steele nodding along to D.L. Hughley saying the GOP Convention looked | Read More »
What Does Jared Lee Loughner Say About The State Of American Politics?
It must be really frustrating being a liberal journalist and/or blogger today. Increasingly, they’re seeing their chance to politically profit from the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords fade away. First of all, after spending all that time and energy to plant the idea in the minds of the American people that Jared Lee Loughner was specifically instructed by Sarah Palin to pick up a gun and | Read More »
