Will Joe Manchin cross the aisle to give the GOP control of the Senate?
Like many here on RS, I’ve been very happy with Mitt’s recent surge in the polls. And like many more here, I’ve been sweating out what will happen in the Senate. I’m optimistic, and think that a mini-wave of sorts is forming, and we will see the GOP end up with the majority, possible 52-53 seats. For control, the GOP needs 50 seats ( Ryan’s | Read More »
No reasonably sane person would want to ask a question at Tuesday’s debate; so then, why are we letting “idiots” question the candidates?
I’m going to make a bold prediction here; that tomorrow night will be the last time we see the Town Hall format used in a presidential debate. George Will correctly states that debates have become a “quasi-constitutional” electoral requirement. As well they should be. But NOT this Town Hall format. It’s a recipe for disaster, and we are likely to witness this tomorrow night. The | Read More »
Does anyone have information on Ambassador Stevens’ funeral?
It suddenly struck me that I have seen absolutely nothing in the media about a funeral service for Ambassador Stevens. Not even an announcement. Has one occurred. We all witnessed the four caskets returning home, accompanied by speeches from Obama and Clinton ( yet again attempting to lay blame for their deaths on the YouTube video.) Since then, absolute silence. I would have expected that | Read More »
Joe Biden channels “Hogan’s Heroes” Sgt. Schultz on Benghazi: “I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing!”
Some Red Staters will recall “Hogan’s Heroes,” the 60′s TV comedy set in a German POW camp during WW II. The bumbling, stumbling, fumbling guard, Sgt. Hanz Schultz is the most iconic character from the series, and during the VP debate, Joe Biden channeled the good sergeant in an effort to distance himself, and Obama, from the fast growing scandal about the utter lack of | Read More »
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 »
