A Poorer Man Than Dick Cheney Might’ve Died if ObamaCare was in Full Effect
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Tomorrow is it, Save Jerseyans! Three full days of ObamaCare hearings will commence before the U.S. Supreme Court just days after the second anniversary of the bill’s passage. Another big story out there today, as I’m sure you’ve heard by now, is former Vice President Dick Cheney who underwent a heart transplant this weekend at age 71. This interesting coincidence compels | Read More »
Mitt Romney’s Birthday by the Numbers
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Governor Romney is 65 years old today, Save Jerseyans. We hope he enjoys it (or at least as much as a candidate for national office possibly can). His first act as an official “senior citizen?” Deciding to NOT sign up for Social Security and Medicare, too. But I’m interested in other numbers tonight… the price of gas, specifically, which | Read More »
President Obama is Lying to You; It’s Time to Start Caring!
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com I really, truly don’t like saying this, Save Jerseyans. He’s my president, too. Even when our chief executives are wrong or morally inappropriate, we still like to think their intentions are originating from a pure place. This is probably the reason why so many Americans are reluctant to ponder Barack Obama’s numerous and disturbing past affiliations. They don’t | Read More »
“Shouting Match” in Context: Governor Christie and Former Navy Seal Have Some History
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com You may’ve heard about Governor Christie’s “shouting match” with a “former Navy Seal” yesterday afternoon in Roebling, New Jersey (click here to watch the video). It was all over the news last night. The Governor often is, and it’s not unusual for a emotionally-charged town hall verbal encounter to be the impetus of the coverage. But the “Navy | Read More »
Breitbart’s Mission Wasn’t Really to “Vet” Obama So Much as to Hold the Media Accountable
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Following the tragic passing of Andrew Breitbart, we heard a lot about a video (or series of videos) which he had planned to release. The Happy Warrior had promised to vet President Obama in 2012 in a way that the mainstream media had failed to do in 2008. Excited interest pulsated throughout the conservative community. Anxious anticipation might’ve been a | Read More »
New Jersey’s Primary May Be Relevant After All!
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Last year, New Jersey’s legislature voted to return to a “unified” primary in June (as opposed to a separate presidential contest in the winter). The reported reason was to save money. The real reason was to aid party bosses with turnout in otherwise uninteresting June contests for down-ballot offices. Go figure. And the anticipated effect? That New Jersey | Read More »
Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems: The Myth Surrounding Obama, Romney and the Partisan Money Gap
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com It’s like the more money we come across, the more problems we see. “We” being the Republican Party. I’ve heard the refrain in recent days leading up to Super Tuesday Ohio showdown from Romney critics; paraphrasing, they’re complaining that “Mitt’s money can help him fool primary voters but it won’t work on Obama in the general because he’s going to | Read More »
Let Breitbart’s Critics Debase Themselves… He Would’ve Wanted It That Way!
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Andrew Breitbart was more than a man, Save Jerseyans. He was a walking, talking, snarking visionary. An elemental catalyst of reaction. What kind of reactions? The jaw-hits-the-floor and you’re saying “wow, so THAT’s what that person/organization that he filmed is all about” kind of reactions. He knew how to get bad people to out themselves; in another life, he | Read More »
Romney Defeats Rick Santorum/Lib Media/Talk Radio/Labor Unions/National Dems in Michigan Primary
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Mitt Romney won BIG last night against the odds, Save Jerseyans. Yes, he has more money and better organization than his primary opponents. We’ve the heard the refrain. But the “establishment” working against him up there is far more formidable than the “establishment” to which he allegedly belongs; it wasn’t called by its proper name on the ballot | Read More »
Exploiting Suffering, Flag-Burning Father is Low Even for the Media
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Have you heard about this, Save Jerseyans? A man from Michigan actually burned a New Jersey state flag to protest Governor Christie’s controversial decision to honor Newark native Whitney Houston by ordering the lowering of flags across the Garden State. You can watch portions of the interview here. An important fact to help understand the Michigan development of | Read More »
