The upcoming Democrat “war on women”, or, parceling out the blame for Obama’s impending defeat
The day after the election, expect to see a real “war on women” break out in the MSM and the liberal chattering classes. Somebody has to take the blame, to be the fall-guys ( oopsie, my bad…but “fall-girls” doesn’t work, and “fall-persons” sounds like people who like to take weekend drives in New England to watch the leaves change colors.) and it appears that this | Read More »
The REAL reason why liberals are frantic to find out the details of Mitt’s tax plan..
Dem politicians and the MSM are complaining endlessly that Romney’s tax plan won’t work, and are incessantly demanding that he provide them with details. Mitt has explained his plan in general details: eliminating some loopholes, capping or ending some popular deductions, and lowering the overall tax rates. He describes his plan as revenue neutral, and correctly states that the details are to be worked out | Read More »
There were TWO big winners in the debate: Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton.
Let’s start with a few basic premises: 1. Hillary Clinton will run for the White House in 2016. ( If you don’t think that’s gospel, then you can stop reading this right now) 2. The 2016 race begins the day after Election Day. It’s now truly a perpetual election cycle. It will either be an open race, or Romney will be seeking a second term. | Read More »
Well, that’s what happens with an affirmative-action debate team.
The first debate’s over. Obama had his hat handed to him by Mitt. James Taranto, in an excellent piece in the WSJ, suggests that Obama’s failure was inevitable, because he’s been coddled, pampered, by the MSM, and thus the first time he faced off with an articulate, prepared, challenger, Obama wasn’t ready. The problem with the normally estimable Mr. Taranto’s thesis is that it suggests | Read More »
Should Romney attempt to force the first debate to focus on foreign policy? It could be a game-changer.
This morning, the news is breaking that contrary to what Susan Rice and other administration figures told the American people ad nauseum about the attack in Benghazi, the Administration knew within 24 hours that it was an organized attack by Al Queda. They even knew the identity of the person responsible for planning the raid. And furthermore, despite multiple bleated promises to seek the facts, | Read More »
American Jews need to “make some noise.” How about blowing a shofar outside the White House?
Well, well..it seems our president won’t be distracted by any “noise” as he ponders and pontificates how to resolve the growing crises in the Middle East. “Noise” must be eubonic-speak for “Bibi,” because the Israeli Prime Minister has of late publicly castigated Obama for continued failures to support Israel, and a strong anti-Iranian, position. Yom Kippur begins tomorrow, the Day of Atonement, the holiest day | Read More »
Does the Muslim worl d want Obama to LOSE the election? (or, why are they rioting NOW, a few weeks before the election)
As we continue to watch the Muslim world degenerate into chaos; the Arab spring heading towards an Arab (nuclear?) winter, with riots all across the would-be Caliphate, there is one question that has yet to be asked: Do the Arabs/Muslims/Islamofascists/terrorists actually WANT Obama to lose the election? Yes, they are fanatics, but they have always displayed a keen understanding of American politics. So now, in | Read More »
How to explain the polls? Is there a “Tom Bradley effect” in play in 2012? Predicting a 54-46 win for Mitt, ( and get ready for endless charges of a “racist” America)
The conventions are over. The post-convention “bounces” ( if indeed they ever existed) have vanished. Polls now show the race as basically a dead heat, well within the margin or error. Ah, the polls, these damned, infernal polls. They also show that Obama remains personally popular, his “likability” above 50%. Yet at the same time, a solid majority of Americans believe that the country is | Read More »
Has anyone noticed?: Clinton’s BIG speech to compete against NFL opener…nobody will watch
Months ago, the NFL announced that it was moving its opening day extravaganza to Wednesday night, so as NOT to detract from Obama’s coronation…er, acceptance speech the same night. Well, the party that has scrubbed all references to God from its platform has now learned WHY people pray….because, well..plans have a funny way of NOT working out. Way back then, it was envisioned that Obama | Read More »
Whither Chuck? Schumer has been AWOL these last few months, and what might it mean?
Way back, when he was just another junior Dem congressman from NY, the standing joke among those who covered the Hill was that the most dangerous place to be in DC was between Chuck Schumer and a TV camera. Well, that strategy has surely payed off for Schumer, helping elevate him to a key Senate leadership spot in the Democrat caucus, and a major player | Read More »
