Herman Cain finally signs Pro-Life Pledge
After initially refusing to sign the pledge, republican presidential hopeful Herman Cain has decided that it would be in his political best interest to side with pro-life advocates by signing the Susan B. Anthony’s List SBA Pledge. The Pledge asks declared presidential candidates to commit to four key pro-life goals if elected to the presidency in 2012: FIRST, to nominate to the U.S. federal bench | Read More »
Do-or-Die tonight: Perry, Santorum, Newt & Huntsman.
Tonight is the final debate that will take place before people gear up for the Christmas season. It is a big deal for two reasons. First, the Iowa Caucuses are five weeks away. Whoever wins Iowa will be the lone candidate with a chance to take on Romney after his New Hampshire win. Second, this debate is do-or-die for every candidate that isn’t named Newt | Read More »
As the Super Committee fails, America wins.
Last week, the so called “Super Committee” created earlier this year by Democrats and cowardly Republicans afraid to hold firm on the spending cuts they promised on the campaign trail, fell short of doing its job as most casual observers knew would happen. The Committee was tasked with finding one trillion dollars in cuts from the annual budget. If the Committee failed, forced budget cuts | Read More »
Where Jon Huntsman went wrong
The current reality of the political scene is that republicans are looking at an imminently vulnerable President Obama and yet we have on one to beat him. With the fall of Bachmann, Perry, Cain and eventually Gingrich we will be left with no real candidates that have the appeal or war chest to take on Romney in the primaries. I have often found myself wondering, | Read More »
Why not Rick Santorum?
There are only forty-five days until the Iowa Caucuses. Conservatives are going to need a champion to face off against Romney after he wins the New Hampshire primary. That guy may be Rick Santorum. It won’t be Cain. Cain is fading and he won’t be back. 9-9-9 was a loser, these sexual harassment allegations have not been rebutted with tangible evidence and he himself (not | Read More »

The point of contention for 26 states, is that individuals will be forced to buy health insurance against their will. Justice Elena Kagan, was Obama’s Solicitor General at the time the bill passed. She is said to have had exposure to the bill | Read More »
Do this one thing, and you can win.
Do this one thing, and you can win. We are 48 days out from the Iowa Caucuses where a frontrunner is decided upon. The only thing for sure is that the race is still open. On this path, it is Romney’s to lose, but if one single candidate could step forward and overcome his one weakness, that person could win the nomination and become the | Read More »

6. Herman Cain. As if we didn’t know it already, Herman Cain isn’t ready for prime time and he showed it through his lack of foreign policy knowledge. 5. Pakistan. Pakistan was a major topic in this weekend’s debate. At the end of the day, Pakistan is not a friend to the U.S. They harbored Osama Bin Laden for years and fund “terrorists” behind our | Read More »
