Honesty Is The Best Policy
During the debate last Wednesday, Perry stood by his Ponzi scheme statement, and much to the chagrin of beltway pundits everywhere, he was not struck down by a liberal lightning bolt. It turns out that although Americans want the jobs situation to get better, and they want to see our debt come under control, the most important thing they are looking for in a candidate, | Read More »
Say It Ain’t So
Last night we heard from the president. He had a jobs bill that needed to be passed immediately. The bill has a cost of 450 billion dollars, or 1,350 dollars for every man woman and child in America. This bill would cost more than the entire deficit of the worst year (2004) of deficit spending under Bush. No need to worry. The president says it | Read More »
Does Obama Live On My Couch?
We all know him. He lives large. He has never held a steady job. He is charming, but ever needy. He has grand plans that will put him on the fast track to permanent success. Those plans never quite materialize. He has hit you up for loans before, and you always, always, want to give him the benefit of the doubt. After all, his plans | Read More »
10 Things About Perry That Will Make Liberals Foam at the Mouth
I was speaking to my liberal friend yesterday, and as I was describing Rick Perry, I warned her that he did not have a single redeeming quality that a liberal could get behind. Indeed, I think that Rick is the absolute antithesis of our current president. I thought that just ten differences would highlight the comparison, but in fact everywhere I looked, Perry was the | Read More »
Presenting Perry, the New Official Frontrunner
The Real Clear Politics average now has Rick Perry leading the pack by 1.7 percentage. Amazing since it includes polls from the beginning of the month when Perry wasn’t running. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2012/president/us/republican_presidential_nomination-1452.html Intrade agrees, with Perry almost 5 points higher than Romney.
I’m Melting!…I’m Melting!
It seems as though the New York based media has declared Rick Perry a “Flat Earther” for his skepticism about man-made global warming. The day after he made that declaration a democratic operative “Jane the ventriloquist” (Kristin Bunce) force fed her child questions in a stage whisper, such as “How old is the Earth?” in the belief that somehow Rick Perry would not hear her | Read More »
A Conversation About Taxes
My liberal friend showed up today with a Cheshire cat smile. She could not wait to have me explain why in this cruel world a super billionaire like Warren Buffet should pay a mere 17% in income taxes. Even Buffet himself said that his taxes were too low! So I asked her a question. ”Is the income tax for people that pay over 6 million | Read More »
A Bunch of Weird, Extremist Whackadoos
I am seeing it all over the place now. The Tea Party is Extremist. Perry is weird, Bachmann is a weird extremist. The Republican Party is held hostage by inflexible, bible thumping whackadoos. We are in virgin territory here! We have tax payers that do not want to pay off small, out of the way airports for flights that never happen. We have politicians that | Read More »
An Open Letter to Rick Perry
Dear Mr. Perry, Thank you for joining the race for president. Your country needs you. Also thank you for announcing at Red State. That said, you will quickly feel like you have walked under a bucket of Bat Guano. In the day or so that you have announced I have already heard that The Texas Miracle is no miracle at all. Although Texas has done | Read More »
We Are Now a Second Rate Power
Today, a little before 6am, we became a second rate power. It had been coming for a couple of years now. The Senate has not passed a budget in 813 days. We cannot figure out how to pay our bills, and we borrow forty three cents for every dollar that the government spends. We seem to couch our international interests in the interests of others, | Read More »
