Mike Castle Ain’t Backbone
“For those who think getting a Republican majority back in the Senate is the solution to our problems, you miss the naked reality that we had a sizable majority and it was liberal[s] … like Castle, and the supposed conservatives who empowered them, who drove the Party and the nation into a ditch, handing the reins to nutjob leftists in the process.” Much has been | Read More »
A Vote for Kagan is a Vote Against the Constitution
If you don’t believe that, then you are simply ignoring reality and you are part of the problem. Elena Kagan is an avowed leftist who, while Dean of the Harvard Law School, refused to extend to the U.S. Military the kind of recruiting facilities offered to others in direct contradiction of the federal law – all because she disagreed with the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t | Read More »
Rick Perry – Saying the Right Things
There is a great deal of angst about the state of affairs in Washington these days – and more books, websites, posts, tweets and opinions generally about what to do about it. But for the most part, for a host of reasons, most of those opinions focus on Washington itself. But not – at least not for today – those of Texas Governor Rick Perry. | Read More »
Some Republicans Still Don’t Get It
Some Republicans continue to fumble the clearest, most concise, easiest-to-sell message in recent memory – the simple notion that the recently enacted Healthcare law, already having negative effects on our lives, is unacceptable and must be fully repealed. That’s not hard, is it? Some Senators get it. Senator DeMint has 15 Senate co-sponsors and growing for his full-repeal bill. And then there’s the almost always | Read More »
You Know Your Enemies And They Stand Before You
There simply are no words to describe the damage inflicted yesterday by Democrats upon America, her citizens, and the millions around the globe who look to America for hope – as the land of the free and the home of the brave. Make no mistake about it – what happened yesterday was not brave, it was cowardly. It was not the best of America, it | Read More »
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 »
Like a Thief in the Night
The grand Republican strategy to have a vote on Christmas Eve was accomplished at 7:15AM (Eastern) this morning, while most Americans slept – and just like a thief in the night, the Senate has slipped in to your home to steal away your freedom and your right to care for your family as you see fit. 60-39. Merry Christmas.
Establishment Republicans Don’t Get It
While numerous hurdles remain to be cleared by House Democrats for the current healthcare bill to become law – the postgame analysis for the Senate has begun and is important. Erick made a few simple but important points a little earlier, here, and below. In short, Senate Republicans thought they could win this on message – and they failed. Hard to argue, really. But what | Read More »
What Constitutes a Fight?
When someone says the word “fight,” most of us see images of Ali and Frazier, or perhaps scenes from the movie Rocky. Certainly the fighting of soldiers at Normandy or Iwo Jima come to mind, maybe even a simple fight among high school boys where someone walks away with a bloody nose – or if even talking only about rhetoric, something akin to Patton’s famous | Read More »
All I Want for Christmas?
It is becoming increasingly likely – indeed, possibly inevitable without either massive public outcry, a little luck, or both – that Americans will get a massive lump of coal in their stocking for Christmas this year – in the form of Washington-run healthcare. Sure, it is possible that Democrats will fail to pull together 60 votes – getting trapped between watering down the public option | Read More »
