The Ron Paul Newsletter and His Jeremiah Wright Moment
If you’ve been under a rock somewhere recently you may not know that Ron Paul published a bunch of crazy, racist newsletters in the late 80′s and early 90′s. Ron Paul, ten years ago, took responsibility for the content, even admitted at one point that he had written some of them. Today, Ron Paul claims he knew nothing about them even though they generated around | Read More »

Commending the Perry Campaign
I risk being accused of endorsing Rick Perry by saying nice things about his campaign two days in a row, but this is genuinely worth commenting on and is not an endorsement. Yesterday, I wrote a post that started with Perry as one of the best candidates to beat Barack Obama, but commented on what I perceive to be one of the flaws in his | Read More »

I will not be endorsing any time soon. I have made clear my reasons here. I am, however, continually surprised that anyone in the GOP thinks Mitt Romney is a really viable candidate. Should he be the nominee, the American public will be treated to interviews and commercials with every person ever fired or laid off because of Bain Capital, an organization from which MItt | Read More »
The Strategic Incompetence of Mitch McConnell
Mitch McConnell‘s minion are in full on spin mode trying to blame Speaker of the House John Boehner for botching the payroll tax cut extension. The only person who deserves any blame is Mitch McConnell. In this, the first deal he pretty much single handedly negotiated with the Democrats, he not only screwed up, but proved he has no freaking clue how to get the | Read More »

The Republican Party has gone insane. For the better part of the last three years the Republican Party has exercised itself into a frenzy over the need to repeal Obamacare. For the two years leading up to November of 2010, mostly middle aged working white people took to the streets in sizes rivaling a NASCAR race to protest the socialization of the American health care | Read More »

Bad News for Barack Obama’s Re-Election
He is still the favorite to win. He is the incumbent President of the United States. He flies on a big blue airplane that gives him free media exposure whenever he lands. He gets to bring along politicians with whom he can curry favor. It is hard to pick off an incumbent President. But there are warning signs on the horizon for Mr. Obama. It | Read More »
Perry & Bachmann in Iowa
They had to do well in Iowa and they did. Mitt Romney had a better debate performance than this past Saturday. The software upgrade must have worked. Newt Gingrich held his own. But Michele Bachmann got to Newt. She got the better of him on the issue of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and he treated her so dismissively on the issue of abortion I | Read More »

Paging Conservatives In Kentucky
One of the most pathetic excuses of a Republican in Congress has finally decided to go away into anonymity. Geoff Davis is retiring. Davis famously whined to the media that those awful conservatives at Heritage Action for America and other groups were “worthless,” which was more a reflection on him than them. Davis has a 63% score from Heritage Action for America. Sure conservatives can | Read More »

National Review: “they lived long enough for us to see them become the villain.”
One of our co-founders, Ben Domenech, produces one of the best daily reads in my inbox. It’s the Transom. If you do not subscribe, you should. And if you do subscribe, today you got Ben’s thoughts on the two big conservative endorsements for Mitt Romney. I think he hits the nail on the head and it is very much worth sharing.
Work for Obama, Get a Federal Contract, and Watch Left-Wing Pseudo-Journalists Roll Over and Purr
Solyndra, Lightsquared, and now Solayzme are all companies that are closely connected to the Obama campaign and all got government money. While the Obama Administration has been attacking Republicans as “crony capitalists” and using an army of left-wing pseudo-journalists to make the attacks, the Obama Administration has been rewarding campaign friends with government contracts. In Barack Obama’s America, he, not the marketplace, picks the winners | Read More »
