Barack Obama has no idea how to create jobs or grow the economy.
This isn’t hyperbole, I really don’t think Barack Obama has any idea how to grow the economy. Obama is so married to his ideology and resentment of corporate wealth that he is unwilling to do what is necessary to get the economy going again. He is a guy with one bullet in his gun — spending and he refuses to use any other methods of | Read More »
Barack Obama has failed black America.
Yesterday, I was listening to Rush, and he was talking about how Barack Obama has let down the black community in America. Once I began thinking about it, Rush is right. When you go back and you hear the interviews with African-Americans prior to Obama’s election about how Obama is going to lower the cost of heating oil and gas and things are going to | Read More »
How to win over independents in 2012.
There is a major fear in the republican party that I want to address. It is scarier than another democratic filibuster-proof Senate, it is more feared than Obama himself. More than anything, Republicans seem to fear . . . . . . Nominating someone who is too conservative to run for president because they think that someone who is too conservative is unelectable and that | Read More »
The case for Ken Cuccinelli: U.S. Senate in 2014.
Ken Cuccinelli, the bold and principled Attorney General of Virginia recently stated that he may seek to run against former Governor and current U.S. Senator Mark Warner. This is huge. This would be the battle of principal and standing up for what you believe in against Mark Warner the yielder that stands for nothing who claims to be a moderate during election season while voting | Read More »
George Allen will continue the status quo on abortion but never fight to ban it.
George Allen is the former republican Governor, Senator and shoe-in republican presidential candidate from Virginia that lost his U.S. Senate seat to now-Senator Jim Webb after running one of the worst campaigns of modern history (Macaca anyone?). George Allen is now running for his old U.S. Senate seat against former Virginia Governor and DNC Chair, Tim Kaine. There are many things to like about George | Read More »
The truth about moderates (and Bob McDonnell).
The truth that no one ever admits about moderate national candidates is that they are unelectable. This is especially true on the right because the right’s coalition needs social and fiscal conservatives so much more than they ever admit yet with moderate candidates, those are the first things to go. Much like right now, moderate republicans promise us a victory (it rhymes with Ritt Momney). | Read More »
Back off of Michele Bachmann
In the past week I have seen Michele Bachmann being attacked from both the left and the right. People are scared that Bachmann could win Iowa and South Carolina and be a true threat to Mitt Romney or another establishment candidate. This fear is well placed. No other candidate on the debate stage tonight lays claim to the strong foundation that Bachmann can bring to | Read More »
U.S. Senate endorsement for Virginia — Part 1 of 2: The Case Against George Allen.
At first glance, George Allen is the logical choice for the open Senate race in 2012. He is a fun-loving former Senator that never would have lost his seat in 2006 were it not for neo-conservatives and un-funded wars. On second glance, George Allen was one of the Republicans that became so focused on “terrorists” in an overseas desert, that he forgot about other principals | Read More »
The Republican brand must be the brand that holds firms on the principle of protecting earned wealth.
As deficits are brought under control an important question is being asked. Should republicans be open to raising taxes? This question could become the relevant question of the next few election cycles as republicans face un-fundable programs, running deficits, and growing debt. As state governors and legislators grapple with getting budgets and deficits under control a decision must be made to either raise taxes on | Read More »
Does the new liberalism stand for a suppression of ideas?
This morning I was watching MSNBC when to my chagrin a certain wooden, yankee, politician reappeared without notice — Senator John Kerry (D-MA). Seeing John Kerry return in a sound bite is worse than seeing the trailer for a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie. But John Kerry had an interesting exchange this morning on Morning Joe. He said that the media has a responsibility | Read More »
