A weak flip-flopper wins the presidency
During the presidential primary campaign of 1928, Franklin D. Roosevelt wasn’t doing so great. He was more of an uncommitted and moderate democrat compared to his frenemy and fellow New York pol, Al Smith. Compared with the hugely successful Smith, Roosevelt was panned as the “weak-willed” “corkscrew candidate”. The problem with FDR was that he was out-of-line with his base. He was a flip-flopper. He | Read More »
Shoring up the base at my alma mater, Liberty University
Barack Obama has spent significant time that could have been spent dealing with the economy, shoring up his base over the last few years. After the mandate election of 2010, he pushed through repeal of DADT for gays, he half heartedly looked toward the DREAM Act for Hispanics, this year he mandated that Church organizations pay for contraceptives and chemical abortions and is currently pushing | Read More »
What does the GOP plan to run on – to win in 2012?
This weekend, the GOP presidential nominee went to the NRA convention and attacked Obama on his gun control record. The GOP nominee said that we need a president who will enforce the gun laws we have rather than create new ones. The only problem is that Obama has a better gun control record than the GOP nominee. It is the GOP nominee who said, “I | Read More »
Why is Mitt Romney risking it?
In what will only become a story with a life of its own, the GOP presidential candidate, Mitt Romney is going forward with building a four-story house. That house is being built on a California beach and is being built over a location where Romney already tore down a beautiful home only to build a bigger one in its place. Romney’s new third vacation home | Read More »
Perry: The ONLY candidate that can beat Obama
As conservatives look over the field of candidates we have been provided this election cycle, one thing becomes abundantly clear: most of these candidates will lose to Obama in 2012. But Rick Perry is the only guy that can show why he is the one you want to have a beer with while Obama is the one upset that the price of arugula is has | 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 »
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 »
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 take-away’s from Saturday’s Debate.
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 »
I will NOT automatically vote for the guy with an “R” next to his name in 2012. Will you?
Recently, a fellow redstate.com diarist wrote an article titled, “I will vote for the Republican nominee in the 2012 Presidential Election. Will you?” NO, I won’t. My vote is not guaranteed to any idiot running for president because he has an “R” behind his name. The reason why is because I am: First, a Christian, Second, an American, Third, a conservative, & FOURTH, a Republican. | Read More »
