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 »
What I learned from the debate: Diane Sawyer is probably the most annoying person in America. ( And oh yeah..Mitt lost..BIG TIME!)
“My Week With Marilyn,” the just released film, purports to document the interaction between Marilyn Monrow and Sir Laurence Olivier, while the two were filming “The Prince and the Showgirl.” Forget the Trump debate. Last night , ABC showed us what it might look like were Marilyn Monroe to host a GOP debate. As I tuned in, I realized that it’s probably been at least | Read More »
Barmey Frank throws in the towel: admits that the GOP will keep the House
Today’s surprise announcement by Barney Frank that he will NOT run for re-election in 2012 is important because it is the first overt admission that the Democrats will NOT retake the House next year. Make no mistake. Frank is ALL about power in Washington. Having it, and more importantly, using it, to promote the far left agenda. If he thought that there were even | Read More »
The GOP MUST make plans now to thin the debate field.
This week’s debate on CNN was the best one to date. Focused on one area, and blessed with intelligent questions from Heritage and AEI fellows, it provided those watching with a solid basis to compare the candidates. And unlike previous debates, where we were treated to the spectacle a candidates complaing about not being asked sufficent questions, or squabbling about an extra 30 seconds to | Read More »
Memo to Rand Paul: Time to take the cars keys away from your father
Ron Paul will NOT be the Republican nominee. Ron Paul will, however, be in this race until the very end. He has a solid core of support, some 5-10%, depending on which state you poll, and is well financed. Ron Paul is far beyond just being the crazy old uncle that nobody wants to get stuck next to at the Thanksgiving table. Paul’s view of | Read More »
