Did NBC somehow forget to tell MSNBC that they were having a debate tonight?
I’m watching the GOP debate as I type this, and was suddenly struck by the fact that MSNBC, the self-proclaimed “place for politics” is absent. Indeed during the first break, I switched over to MSNBC,a nd here’s Rachel Maddow, ostensibly the biggest star in t hat miniscule firmament..talkign about the Patriots win over the Ravens. Whassup with that? Did MSNBC perhaps lean “too far forward?” | Read More »
Perry should announce his withdrawal, and support of Newt, AT THE START OF THE DEBATE TOMORROW NIGHT
Think about it. Just let your mind contemplate it. It would be without a doubt one of the single greates political moments in American history. Erick has posted today, in a thoughtful and well reasoned piece, the reasons why Gov. Perry should withdraw from the race, and endorse Newt. I agree. I have supported Perry from the day he announced his candidacy. But, for a myriad | Read More »
Reflections on Mitt: Nothing in his (political) life will become him like the leaving of it..
Mitt Romney is very likely to become the GOP nominee, pirmarily because conservatives, who are the overwhelming majority of the party, are unable to coalesce around either Gingrich, Santorum, or Perry. Mitt Romney will also lose to Obama. This will be a bitter pill to swallow. There is no way to sugarcoat that fact. We should have been able to make Obama a “one term | Read More »
Red State :Prophet of the Year” Contest: see if you can predict the events of 2012
Some may recall National Review‘s “Prophet of the Year” contest. I thought it would interesting, and fun, to see what Red Staters think about what’s going to happen in 2012. There are 25 questions…all TRUE or FALSE. We’ll store the responses, tote them up at the end of the year, and announce the results. Maybe we can get Erick to contribute a prize for the | Read More »
Obvious question: Since the “recess” appts are unconstitutional, shouldn’t the GOP Congressional leadership file the lawsuit?
Republicans agree that Obama’s so-called recess apts yesterday are illegal. So, who has standing to file the lawsuit? I’ve read that the US Chamber of Commerce may do so. But shouldn’t the GOP leadership in Congress..especially the Senate, file the suit to challenge it, and also demand that the Supreme Court take it on an expidited basis?
Mitt’s world, or…. Eddie Haskell runs for President
“Leave it to Beaver” was an iconic TV series that ran from 1957-63. It portrayed a kinder, simpler image of Americana, suburbia..white picket fences, a stay at home mom, and a close knit family. It reflected the values that made this country great. The greatest generation, that had won World War II, had served again in Korea, had settled down, put down roots, started families, | Read More »
It is way beyond time for Sarah Palin to endorse a candidate.
The polls are all over the place. Both in Iowa, and nationally, but we can state some obvious facts. Mitt still can’t crack that low 20′s% ceiling. Ron Paul will NOT be the nominee, but he will be in this until the convention. His supporters are fanatical, and his campaign is well financed. I suspect that Iowa will be his high water mark, as more | Read More »
Hey, Mr. “4th greatest President ever”..let’s see how you stack up against another Democrat icon…JFK
Like many here, I was amazed at the blatant narcissism of Obama, when he recently described himself as perhaps the “fourth most successful administration ever ( in recent history..though one could hardly describe Lincoln as “recent”.) And yes, it’s too easy to just ignore it as yet another insipid comment, but I was struck by the fact that while he included FDR and LBJ in | Read More »
They know where the $$$$ from MF Global went..so why aren’t Republicans demanding the information?
Today’s hearing on the MF Global bankruptcybefore a House committee was well, weird. This was Corzine’s third appearance on the Hill, and the man seems to be imploding before our very eyes. He is dull, listless, and oh, yeah, probably once again walked into a perjury trap. Well, he can always call on Joe Biden to be a character witness at his criminal trial. Corzine | Read More »
Perry does have a plausible path to the nomination, if he can get it down to a two man race between himself and Newt
Perry’s poll numbers are disappointing, and troubling. Yes, he had a very good debate on Saturday, and he has one more chance this week with the FOX debate, but he faces an uphill battle for the nomination. However, there is a very viable pathway to victory for the Texan. Let’s look at four fairly consistent poll results: 1. After the bottom dropped out of his campaign, | Read More »
