Is Joe Scarborough Out of Touch With The Conservative Ascendancy?
I have been a big fan of Morning Joe and Joe Scarborough for the last 18 months. Not so much lately. It seems like ever since Joe moved to the Upper West Side in New York, he seems a bit to cozy with all of his liberal friends. He appears to be a bit to eager for their approval. Joe initially was the Conservative willing to criticize Bush | Read More »
Why Do Pundits Assume TeaPartiers Support Dem Financial Reform Bill?
It seems that most Political pundits assume that the country hates Wall Street and therefore supports the Democrats Financial Reform Bill. Today on Morning Joe, even Joe Scarborough said he thought this bill would have the support from many in the Tea Party. Republican Senators also seem worried about being on the wrong side of public opinion and want to make a deal and move | Read More »
Hidden Danger in Dodd Financial “Reform” Bill
I was reading an article about the financial reform bill on OpenMarket.org tonight and I found this comment that got me thinking: And the bill’s definition of “nonbank financial company” is so broad that it could cover manufacturers only tangentially involved in extending credit, such as those that lease equipment to their customers. So, I decided to check it out. I went to Senator Dodd’s web-site | Read More »
How to Repeal ObamaCare Before 2012
It’s time for our first ever Constitutional Convention since the approval of the U.S. Constitution. Congress has strayed too far off the path and we just can’t wait through two election cycles to replace Congress and the President. We need to get busy these next 6-1/2 months and elect good, solid, conservatives to our state legislatures. If two-thirds of our states (34) vote for a Constitutional Convention | Read More »
One Big Reason the MSM Would Rather Blame Wall Street Greed vs. Congress and Fannie Mae for the Meltdown
Today on Meet the Press, David Gregory issued a disclaimer when interviewing Senator Jeff Sessions about potential SCOTUS nominees. It seems his wife, Beth Wilkinson had worked for one of the “short list” names being shopped around, Judge Merrick Garland. Not only had his wife worked for this guy, but he had performed the Gregory marriage ceremony. That, however, is not the big deal. I googled Beth | Read More »
Open Thread: “Had Enough?”
I read an excellent analysis by Michael Barone yesterday comparing the 2010 election to 1946. It was extremely detailed and technical (like Barone usually is), but the thing that stood out the most was the slogan the Republican Party used in 1946. I find it extremely appropriate for this election: HAD ENOUGH? This is an open thread…..
Next Attack — Tie the Tea Party to Timothy McVeigh
Just saw a commercial on Morning Joe where MSNBC is planning on running a special on Timothy McVeigh. It’s called, “The McVeigh Tapes”. One of the quotes it is using from McVeigh is, “I felt absolute rage”. It is referring to him as a domestic terrorist, which by itself is OK, but who else does MSNBC consider to be anti-government extremists? Why do I suspect | Read More »
Obama is Going to Get Us All Killed
Erick’s question is accurate: “How many Americans are going to die because of the Obama administration’s incompetent handling of our national security?” The answer: All of us! Most historians agree that while JFK responded admirably to the Cuban Missile Crisis, it would have never occurred in the first place had he not projected weakness to the point where the Soviets and Nikita Khrushchev thought that | Read More »
Does the Health Care Bill’s Penalty for the Individual Mandate Have Any Teeth?
Lawrence O’Donnell is a liberal that is usually so obnoxious that he is almost unbearable to watch on MSNBC. However, for the last several months, he has been a major critic of this gargantuan mess that has been called saving Obama’s Presidency the Health Care Bill. During this time, he has actually seemed very knowledgeable about what was in the bill and couldn’t imagine why | Read More »
