Are all the scandals finally starting to catch up with Obama?
There was an interesting comment made by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show today: RUSH: I know. In a way I’m conflicted, because you say — and I know what you mean — that he’s getting away with it. And, yeah, where we are certainly means he’s gotten away with it. I have to catch myself sometimes and grab myself before I get too far | Read More »
Why Republicans in the House should not cave.
“The Senate will be more likely to be corrupt than the House of Representatives and should therefore have less to do with money matters.”This statement by Edmund Randolph during the Constitutional Convention expresses one of the major reasons that the men of that convention chose to give the power of the purse to the House of Representatives. They came to realize that this was one | Read More »

New NSA Bombshell raises new questions about Domestic Surveillence
Courtesy of the Washington Post: The Obama administration secretly won permission from a surveillance court in 2011 to reverse restrictions on the National Security Agency’s use of intercepted phone calls and e-mails, permitting the agency to search deliberately for Americans’ communications in its massive databases, according to interviews with government officials and recently declassified material. In addition, the court extended the length of time that | Read More »
Obama slammed by Mitch McConnell?!?!
Well, as much as I don’t like Mitch McConnell, credit should be given where credit is due. To lead into this I’m posting an exerpt from a hotair.com article by Erika Johnson. …I suppose it’s possible they’ll be able to drum the votes up as time goes on, if they still move to go through with the exercise, but Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is officially | Read More »
Why more debates in a Republican Primary is actually a good thing.
Okay folks, I’m going to go against the grain and say the number of debates wasn’t the problem. Romney would have won the nomination by default in 2012 simply because of all the money. Romney spent a total of $76.6 million, far more than any other campaign. That total is, for example, more than the combined spending of Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. | Read More »
Suggestion for Changes to Primaries
Okay, we all know Romney managed to win the primary was because we weren’t able to consolidate behind a particular candidate. The conservative vote was split so many different ways that Romney with the unlimited resources managed to win things by default. I think something needs to be done in the primaries to help make sure something like that doesn’t happen again. Okay in | Read More »
Why Replacing Boehner would be rather pointless

Okay I this may be a little out of order in reference to Article I, but the answer as to why replacing Boehner won’t do anything except shooting ourselves in the proverbial foot. While section 7 shows | Read More »
My Theory to how we lost
I know how people are blaming this group and that group, I think it was a culmination of factors, I do not believe social conservatives are to blame. As everyone well knows Obama’s political experience comes from Chicago, they are masters of demonizing people. 1. Most of the Republican voters let themselves get manipulated in the primary, so the Democrats got the candidate they wanted | Read More »
Mount Obama washes away
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A torrential downpour that struck Charlotte Saturday afternoon damaged the Mount Rushmore-style sand sculpture bust of President Obama — an ominous beginning to what many fear is a plagued convention. Workers were trying Saturday afternoon to reform the base of the sculpture, built from sand brought in from Myrtle Beach, S.C., pounding and smoothing out the sand that had washed off the | Read More »
