    A bonus in the Ryan pick by the name of Scott Garrett

    Romney’s pick of Rep Paul Ryan has pleased most conservatives looking for ‘spine’, articuation of conservative principles and an election of consequence which, if we win, will be a mandate for the knds of consrevative reform we all believe in. However, some have raised a concern about the vacuum Paul Ryan will leave in the House. I too was wondering who would take the helm | Read More »

    Obama destroys retirement for 20,000 auto industry workers

    In yet another example of Obama administration corruption, malfeasance and meddling, Human Events and Daily Caller are reporting: Emails obtained by The Daily Caller show that the U.S. Treasury Department, led by Timothy Geithner, was the driving force behind terminating the pensions of 20,000 salaried retirees at the Delphi auto parts manufacturing company. The move, made in 2009 while the Obama administration implemented its auto | Read More »

    Four more years of the Obama Depression

    Some people are finally waking up. We are in a depression: There is nothing more depressing than hearing about a new recession when you haven’t fully recovered from the last one. I take heart in suspecting that in a still-distant future, historians will look back with clarity and call this whole rotten period a depression. Our lousy economy needs a name: The Obama Depression. Tomorrow | Read More »

    Ted Cruz – Texas Senate race PPP poll coming up

    I just got off the phone from a robo-pollster. I was expecting it to be a candidate-based poll but was surprised at the end to hear it was Public Policy Polling (PPP). They are polling the Texas Senate runoff races. Since I had just early-voted for Ted Cruz yesterday, the last day of early voting for the Texas runoff, I was able to put myself | Read More »

    Democrat convention will be held at “New Black Panther Stadium”

    Political euphemisms are always ripe for parody and cynicism. So, in their brilliance, the DNC decided to hold the 2012 DNC convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, a state that will swing Republican this fall and decided to vote against gay marriage right when Obama decided to be for it. Oh, and they are holding the convention at the Bank of America stadium.  What a fitting | Read More »

    Romney’s Olympic-Sized Opportunity

    The Obama campaign attacks on Romney for what he did or did not do from 1999 to 2002 has put Romney on the defensive. However, Mitt Romney has a massive Olympic-sized Opportunity to turn his current weakness into a trump card and power through the Bain of Obama attacks.  The epiphany for me came in a factcheck review that debunked the Obama attacks on Romney | Read More »

    Media Tries to Bait Boehner, Fails

    One of the arts of political performance is expressed in the saying – “Stay on Message”. When the unstoppable force of a Media That Has a Narrative to Write meets the unmovable resolution of an public official That Stays On Message, the result can be a comedic act of verbal cat-and-mouse. Witness Speaker Boehner, resisting the catcalls from the media to pontificate on Obama’s most | Read More »


    So Team Obama offers as their campaign theme “Forward”. The word has been much used in the history of socialist sloganeering.  The Forward video is a pathetic attempt to rewrite the last four years of failure and give the best account they can for the Obama accomplishments. The goods news is this: After watching it, my reaction was: “That’s all they’ve got?” They wrapped it | Read More »

    Obama is the Only Candidate Standing Up for the Middle Class

    That’s Right… I know it’s true because I saw a web ad on yahoo. Obama is not content to spend billions of taxpayer money buying support from unions, government workers. Now he’s got his campaign machine going after the MIDDLE. The internet ads are here. Yikes. The family is all smiles, angry Michelle and dyspeptic Barack put that aside for a pic: The same | Read More »

    Romney Wins … It’s a Wrap

    Erick E and other Redstate wishful thinkers may want to pretend its not really over, but Romney’s lopsided win in Florida and his sweep of the delegates is exaclty the win he wanted to have to get him closer to wrapping up the nomination. Some of the odd statements made by Erick:  If I were a national Republican operative, I’d be very worried about tonight. | Read More »
