Three crucial primaries that will clearly define both the GOP and the US Senate
Aside from the presidential contest, there are a great many other races around the nation that have conservatives excited about the prospects of victory. Be it for governor, senator, or representative, the GOP can reasonably anticipate gains across the board. But before we get to the general election, there are THREE Republican primaries for senate contests that are crucial to determining the future of both | Read More »
2012 is starting to look a lot like 1996, and if the GOP establishment has its way, Mitt will be the next Bob Dole
Coming into the 1996 election, the GOP was excited, energized, and fready to take complete control of the federal government. In 1996, the voters, disgusted in part by Clinton’s policies ( including the first attempt to have the federal government take over health care ) and the many emerging Clinton scandals ( which is what happens when the Dem candidate gets a pass from the | Read More »
OWS..Allen Drury wrote about it decades ago.
As I’ve been following the OWS story these last few weeks, as the movement both grows and evolves, I’ve had a recurrent sense that I’ve heard it all before. And yesterday it hit me: Allen Drury had chronicled this years ago. Drury’s “Washington series” of novels beginning with “Advise and Consent”, were the political and social equivalent of Tom Clancy’s cold war technothrillers. He was | Read More »
Can anyone explain the GOP congressional strategy for Obama’s jobs bill?
This has been aggravating me for some time. I’m trying to understand what the GOP is doing with Obama’s jobs bill, and for the life of me, I have no clue. I think it’s important, because it gives considerable insight into House GOP leadership…or rather, the lack of it. As we all know, a few weeks ago, after much ballyhooing and pormotion, Obama finally produced | Read More »
In case you missed it, there’s an election tomorrow for governor of West Virginia…
Tomorrow in W. Virginia, there is a special election for governor. Because neither candidate has Tweeted pics of his nether regions, the race has garnered very little national attention. Yet in many ways, it is potentially very significant, and could be an indicator of next November’s results. The acting governor, Earl Ray Tomblin ( who came into office when Manchin ran, and won, the Senate | Read More »
One good thing to result from Solyndra: no longer do the Dems talk about the need for government to “invest” in America.
Prior to the Solyndra scandal breaking, you could guarantee, with the same predictability that the sun rose each morning, that every time Obama ( along with every other elected Democrat official) spoke, included in the ritual mantra of “saving Social Security and Medicare” was the chorus about the importance of government “investing in our future.” Despite the fact that “government investing” is NOT among the powers | Read More »
Is it time for Herman Cain to release complete detailed medical information and allow his doctors to speak to the media?
We witnessed two amazing events this weekend. Cain easily won the Florida straw poll, trouncing the two presumptive favorites, Perry and Romney. In Michigan, Cain finished second, to Mitt, but for Romey, Michigan, and NH are almost favorite-son states..so it’s an equally significant finish for Cain. And he did finish ahead of Perry. Obviously, the GOP base hasn’t made up its mind..not even as to | Read More »
Should the RNC just allow the several states to hold primaries whenever they choose?
We’re fast approaching either a resolution or a confrontation as to the final schedule for GOP presidential primaries. Arizona has already moved up its date, Michigan wants to go earlier, as does Florida. The RNC supposedly will penalize ANY state that goes out of turn with a loss of votes at the convention. Since the convention is in Tampa next year..well, the odds that Florida | Read More »
Now that Qadafi is gone, we need to find, and return home, the remains of Capt. Paul F. Lorence USAF; kia 4/15/1986 – operation “El Dorado Canyon”- lest we forget
During the 1980′s there were mulitple terrorists acts across western Europe, for which the Libyan regime bore much of the responsibility. After the April 5, 1986 bombing of a West Berlin nghtclub, which injured several American servicemen, President Reagan had had enough. He ordered a military strike on Qadaifi’s HQ, hoping to decapitate the regime. I am not going to recount in detail the specifics of the | Read More »
Biden, Hillary, Warner, Bennet, Cuomo. REJOICE!! These are your likely Democrat WH candidates for 2016.
Obama has succeeded in ONE thing. He has managed to drag the national Democrat party further to the left than anytime since WW II. And given us the opportunity for at least a decade of conservative Republican governance. Whether Obama wins or not next year, one thing is for certain. The race for the Democrat nomination begins the day after Election Day. Like it or not, | Read More »
