Newt Gingrich is a friend to Dred Scott
I was recently debating a friend over the merits of Newt Gingrich’s recent comments that the Supreme Court’s power should be reigned in. We sparred over a Boston Globe article that quoted Abraham Lincoln as stating, “If the policy of the government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court the instant they are made | Read More »
Iowa Debate Tonight: Can Perry show he is the anti-Newt/Romney?
As we have been predicting, Gingrich is on his way down in Iowa. Once he gets past a certain point, he doesn’t have the charisma to come back. Gingrich is taking it from every side in Iowa ad buys. Everyone, Romney, Paul and Perry are hitting him from the right. Gingrich has replied with no negative ads and hardly any positive ones. How noble, but | Read More »
Voting for Newt Gingrich is worst than fighting with your wife
Voting for Newt in the Iowa Caucus or any primary would be akin to yelling at your wife. When you fight with your spouse, stray and undisciplined statements come into your head that you want to say to her, even though you know you shouldn’t. As the first word leaves your mouth you feel energized, righteous and even vindicated, but as the last word leaves | 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 »
Dear Newt: Please dismount your high horse.
Newt, I have grown very tiresome of the act. Every debate you attack the moderators with or without cause. Much to my surprise this election cycle, you have become the keeper of the conservative flame. Last week you declared that you would be the nominee. You stated that while you once thought the race would be between Romney and the “anti-Romney”, you now thought the | 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 »
