Will KBH Bow Out For the Good of Texas?
Next Tuesday, Texans will vote in their respective primaries, and all eyes are on the race for the Republican nomination for governor. If no candidate gets 50% of the vote, there will be a run-off between the top two, which will be Governor Perry and Senator Hutchison. Such a run-off will allow Democrat Bill White, who will win the Democrat nomination easily over opponent Farouk | Read More »
Bob Bennett Pledges to Repeal Obamacare – Will He Now Pledge to Kill His Own Healthcare Bill?
As most RedState readers are aware, The Club for Growth launched a great website called www.repealit.org, designed to garner pledges from current office holders, candidates and citizens to make clear their intention to work to repeal ObamaCare (or any variation thereof) should it pass. Senator Bob Bennett (R-UT) has signed the pledge for candidates, the text of which is: I hereby pledge to the people | Read More »
Beyond the Whining, What Did the President Propose?
The President, not too surprisingly, said a lot last night in the State of the Union – and by that, I mean he used a lot of words. But what did the President actually propose? In short – it was the same thing we’ve been hearing from him since his campaign – the government creates jobs, the government needs to control healthcare, and the government | Read More »
Hutchison Reaffirms Support for Roe v. Wade in Texas Debates
Tonight in Texas, the Republican Gubernatorial debate took place at the University of North Texas in Denton. Participating were Governor Perry, Senator Hutchison and Debra Medina. There were a number of highlights and lowlights – but suffice it to say, it was pretty clear that Senator Hutchison is of Washington and Governor Perry is of Texas. The most important, and telling, exchange occurred between the | Read More »
Our Friend Paula Nowakowski
We in the conservative movement are not shy to criticize members of Republican leadership – and by implication (or occasionally, directly) their staff. But those of us who have worked on Capitol Hill know precisely how hard it is to find good staff, how hard those good staff members work, and how important they can be – not just to the members – but to | Read More »
Hume Profession of Faith Follow-Up
As a quick follow-up to the post from yesterday, a friend emailed me a link to a DC radio show in which Brit Hume further explains his “controversial” statement. That is all. http://www.wtopnews.com/?sid=1856307&nid=93
Brit Hume and Public Profession of Faith
We conservatives spend a lot of time – on this website and elsewhere – fighting for freedom and limited government. We do so because we believe ourselves to be right –confident that if government will simply get out of the way, free men will prosper. We therefore will not sit idly by while the world succumbs to tyranny and statism, and instead, we will do | Read More »
Prayers For Rush
News accounts indicate Rush was taken to a hospital in Hawaii while on vacation. Please pray for him.
Whoever that Dude is – Brooks
Say what you want about Sarah Palin – but it’s hard not to like someone who, with respect to David Brooks, says to Bill O’Reilly, “…whoever that dude is… Brooks… out there… still calling me a whatever.” Sorry for the late observation – but I missed the O’Reilly interview til now. That’s all.
40 Republicans May Be a Temporary Blessing
Yesterday, Byron York had an interesting piece over at the Washington Examiner entitled “Republicans deserve blame for Democratic excesses.” In it, he makes the somewhat obvious but important-to-be-said point that Republicans made their own bed. Had Republicans not been so terrible in so many ways during their reign, and in particular, toward its end, then they might have saved a seat or two in the | Read More »
