The West Wing Predicted the 2008 Election……
Laugh at me if you will, but I watched the last season and a half of The West Wing. Mainly because I wanted to see if all of the rumors were true that a Republican would win the White House on the show. Of course Hollywood didn’t let that happen, but it was pretty intersting to say the least. The brief synopsis is this: The | Read More »
Yes, President-Elect Obama. I want someone who does virtually nothing to combat illegal immigration to run Homeland Security!
Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano will head the Department of Homeland Security. This is like having the fox guard the hen house. This is quite possibly the worst appointment Barack Obama can make, unless he taps Chuck Hagel to run the DoD. Here we have a governor who does practically nothing to defend the border with Mexico, and our great leader wants her to help come | Read More »
The Republican Party CAN Appeal to Everyone
Guess what? The Republican Party (as well as conservatism) is dead. The death occured on November 4th, and the funeral was on November 5th. Not only is this hogwash, but it’s served as a rallying cry for me. I know conservatism is alive and well, and I still know that the United States is a center-right country. Anyone else who tells me otherwise gets a | Read More »
So, What if Ted Stevens Wins then Goes to Jail?
How Ted Stevens is in a position to win his Senate seat in Alaska is beyond me. The man was convicted on multiple counts almost two weeks ago on not reporting gifts to turn (at least from what I’ve heard) a simple cabin into something like the White House. I understand he has gotten a lot, and I mean a lot of stuff for Alaska | Read More »
What is the Republican Solution to Health Care?
I thought John McCain’s healthcare plan was a pretty good start. A $5000 tax credit so you can buy the coverage you need to get from whoever and wherever has the best plan to fit your needs. I thought this was a very good way to promote free market solutions to the cost of health coverage, but it wasn’t enough. In the past few elections, | Read More »
How the Presidential Election Looked from Omaha
The Republican party is in trouble. Big trouble. And this is from a state that is supposed to be redder than blood, if there’s such a thing. Barack Obama had a huge advantage in money. Ignore the fact that he backed out on his promise to accept public financing. The money gave him serious advantages in the swing states, and it’s one reason that Indiana, | Read More »
Sarah Palin, Welcome to “Under the Bus”
It seems there are a lot of bitter feelings towards Sarah Palin from certain McCain staffers. Palin denies there was any type of rift, and maybe she honestly believes that, but it’s pretty obvious that she, like President Bush, is getting tossed under the proverbeal bus. Carl Cameron reported earlier this afternoon on FOX some wild stories; she refused preparation for the interviews with Charlie | Read More »
Dick Durbin’s Daughter Passes Away
Sometimes we get so caught up in politcis that we put aside the fact that the people we either support strongly or oppose with every last breath are human beings just like us. I just saw on CNN.com that Dick Durbin’s daughter passed away earlier today. Even though we disagree with Durbin on pretty much all of the political issues, no parent should have to | Read More »
My Opinion: MSM will Call Key Battleground States for Obama Right After Polls Close
According to the McCain campaign e-mail update I got last night, they are very excited about their chances in possibly winning Iowa and Colorado on Tuesday. I don’t know if I am as optimistic, but then again we were supposed to believe that Obama should already appoint his cabinet and start working on his agenda with Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. I said in another | Read More »
URGENT: In One Day Polling, McCain Leads Obama 48%-47%
I know it’s only a one-point lead, and the experts are predicting a pretty blue electoral map next Tuesday, but should we be getting excited? I’ve let you guys and gals know that I had a period where I was getting down a month ago or so about the polls, and I apologized. And another thanks to all of you here at RedState (my new | Read More »
