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 »
Now that Obama’s at the Vineyard, I can ask, why didn’t he vacation in Florida?
I’ve been wondering about this ever since the vacation plans were announced. Martha’s Vineyard? It made NO sense whatsoever, for all the reasons that have been mentioned. I hesitated to post this before, lest someone actually suggest this to the WH (g) If Obama is serious about getting re-elected, then he HAS to win Florida. There is NO realistic electoral vote path to victory without | Read More »
Contemplating a scenario in which Obama decides NOT to run again
It’s been a bad few weeks for Obama, ending with his first drop BELOW 40% in the approval ratings. He’s been taking hits from the left wing for months, of late with increased frequency and vitriol. Worse, he’s been the butt of jokes from the left wing. There’s even been some talk that he needs to have a primary opponent. Well, that’s just not going | Read More »
Should Rick Perry resign as governor of Texas to run for president?
Watching Perry’s speech at the RedState gathering, I noticed that one of his biggest lines, the one that he seemed to really throw himself into, with a big grin, was “..when I decide to really do something, I go all in..” OK Governor, if we take you at your word, then why not resign as governor to run full time for the WH? I’m not | Read More »
Watch the clip of Nikki Haley speaking at RedState, and ask yourselves,right now, if your choice was between Palin and Haley, who would it be?
First of all, let’s get one thing out of the way. If the GOP manages to once again shoot itself in the foot, be the Stupid Party one more time, and lose the WH, then Nikki Haley should be the odds on morning-line favorite for 2016. I am NOT suggesting that she should run now. No way. She has made a promise, a committment to | Read More »
What would we be saying today if Ron Paul had managed to bring two more busloads (153 voters) to Ames?
I’m thrilled that Michelle Bachmann won the Iowa straw poll yesterday. Not because I’m already committed to her candidacy ( I’m not); rather, it’s because Ron Paul didn’t win. Think about it. Had Paul’s loyalists managed to drag 153 MORE supporters to Ames, it would be Ron Paul today doing the “Ginsburg tour” of all the Sunday talk shows, and we’d be seeing ad nauseum | Read More »
