Am I the only conservative who finds it surprising that, today, I have NO idea whom I’m inclined to support for the GOP nomination?
Most of us at Red State are political junkies to an extent, some more so than others. All of us are deeply interested in the unfolding contest for the GOP nomination. Erick has already started to handicap the race, giving us his take in the weekly “Morning Line.” In looking at recent polling, which appears to suggest that a majority of Republicans aren’t happy with the candidates | Read More »
Every time Obama said “Taliban” tonight, he sounded like Harry Belafonte
What can I possibly say? “Day O – day ay ay O Election come – time to bring the troops home One battalion, two battalion, three battalion. GONE My polls stinlk- time to bring the troops home Day O- day ay ay ay ay O Bin Laden gone, time to bring the troops home” Ah, geez….
GOP dare not become the “Wimpy” caucus” in the debt ceiling fight..(“I’ll pay you on Tuesday for a hamburger today..”)
The House GOP has already wimped out once, in a failed effort to control government spending. The hundreds of billions in spending cuts we were told had been achieved..the ”great” victory..turned out to be less than the amount Michelle Obama is currently spending on her latest vacation; this time to South Africa. And after we conservatives had yelled and screamed, we were told by the | Read More »
Shaping the debate? Messaging? McCain AND Graham dominate Sunday talk shows..r
Interesting. It appears that we have TWO separate and distinct GOP policy groups. One consists of the large, and growing field of WH contenders who are starting to give voice to a well reasoned critique of Obama’s adminitration and its policies. Then there’s the second GOP caucus, consisting of McCain and Graham, who spent most of Sunday telling the first group..how dare they question Obama’s policies | Read More »
Why the “great one,” Mark Levin, is finally wrong about something ( Hatch..and Lugar, Snowe MUST be beaten in primaries)
Daily Caller has two very interesting stories today. First one reports that Dick Armey’s FREEDOMWORKS has targeted Orrin Hatch for defeat next year. They hope to replicate beating Bob Bennett, and electing Mike Lee. The other piece presents Levin’s semi-scathing indictment of Armey’s motives and reasoning. Far be it from me to differ with Levin, but in this case, he’s dead wrong. It’s absolutely imperative | Read More »
Memo to the GOP field:Keep on attacking Obama, wait at least 6 months before attacking each other
Confession: I just finished watching Hardball. I was curious to hear what the lunatic fringe of the MSM had to say about last night’s debate. And the Three Smirkers ( Chris Matthews, Eugene Robinson - who must sleep in the MSNBC studios, and Howard Fineman) did not disappoint. They voiced their collective displeasure that the participants did not turn on each other. Palenty was said | Read More »
Who knew? Even Bill Maher has standards…( and limits?)
RealClearPolitics has the clip of Bill Maher reading the actual texts of Weiner’s emails with the Las Vegas blackjack dealer, on his HBO show. Typical for Maher, and for his audience…about what one would expect from those who for whatever reason, find him funny, or even relevant. Having read the texts, and diaried about them on RS, I watched the clip. I was curious to | Read More »
MSM having a collective orgasm over Palin’s emails, but Weiner’s ACTUAL online orgasms, well, no big deal, nothing to see here, let’s just move on…
It is actually, too, too delicious. The MSM is devolving into a parody of itself, right before our eyes. And they really don’t even have a clue. They are blinded by their own political prejudice. This election cycle will finally be the one that completely ends any pretense that the MSM has to objectivity in news gathering. Up in Alaska, a whole forest has been | Read More »
Huma is far from being the innocent victim here……and, BTW, did Hillary know about this for some time?
OK. First, upp front, I feel very sorry for the lady now. She’s pregnant, and in what should be among the most joyous of times in her life, she has to deal with the mess her husband has made. But amazingly, everyone is ignoring obvious facts right in the open that belie any claim that she is somehow an innocent victim in all this. Here’s the money | Read More »
Whither the Dems? Why NO call for Weiner to resign?
The behavior of the Democrat leadership after Weiner’s presser yesterday afternoon is probably MORE bizarre that the congressman’s risky behavior…sending lewd pics of himself to women in cyberspace. If you think about it, it makes absolutely NO sense whatsoever. It is a LOSE/LOSE proposition for them. And thus, it’s reasonable to inquire if there is indeed something in the Dem/liberal DNA, psyche, ethos, whatever, that | Read More »
