Leadership in the New Congress
The most important thing that will happen when a split congress comes together in 2011 is the selection of leadership positions. It’s easy to shift your attention from the Senate and Congressional races that just concluded to the Presidential election of 2012. Not so fast! The most important vote that the new congress will begin with is the selection of leadership positions. With Mike Pence | Read More »
George was killed the other day.
George was killed the other day. Ambushed in his front yard, standing next to the woman he loved and the boy whom he called his own. One shot to the heart. This took place not in Iraq or a tough ghetto in Detroit or even in West Palm Beach. This murder took place in Palm Beach Gardens in a quiet suburban neighborhood made up of | Read More »
Go West America!
Down here in Florida we have a congressional race that epitomizes the battle in the fight to take back America. Ron Klein is the Democrat incumbant in C.D. 22.

I don’t hear anyone mention Kelly Ayotte
She defeated a candidate who attempted to paint her as a liberal and tried to destroy her by distorting the truth. That’s exactly the type of candidate I can’t stand. (See Mike Castle) When Rick Scott was successful in that tactic against a true conservative Republican, I was told to shut up and support him because he’s now our candidate. (I have to add, when | Read More »
It appears that Obama believes that his sagging economy needs a boost.
Of course, his ridiculous story line is that the stimulus is working, (just not as good as it should, because of George W. Bush.) No really, the economy is not really that bad. (never mind that unemployment is at nearly 10% nationally, and almost 15% in several states including Harry Reid’s, never mind that forclosures are continuing to flood the housing market at unsustainable rates.) | Read More »
Harry Reid is the Leader of Delusional Democrats
In the fight of his politcal life Harry Reid once again has stepped up to show he is truly the Democrat’s leader. In a show of that leadership he has broken with the President taking a position against the building of a mosque near ground zero in New York. In doing so Sharron Angle welcomed Harry to the correct side of the issue. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2010/08/17/religion_again_takes_center_stage_in_nevada_senate_race_106782.html However, Sharron | Read More »
Get off your buts…
This is the most important congressional election in our lifetime. Carl Rove (I am not a big fan of his) said today on Hanity that he projects a gain of 37 seats in the U.S. House this year. That would leave the Republicans as the minority party. http://innovation.cqpolitics.com/atlas/house2010_rr Congressional Quarterly has worse numbers (what else would you expect from CQ?) than that. But what is | Read More »

In two of those states, Missouri and Kansas, they will select new Senatorial Candidates, with the retirement of Sam Brownback (R) KS, and “Kit” Bond (R) MO.

The Eyes of Texas on Congress
