Keep an Eye on Darrell Issa.
As Governor Moonbeam settles back into the Governor’s office in Sacramento, Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Oceanside, Calif.) will become the Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Let’s not kid ourselves: As bad as Meg Whitman was as a candidate she should have won that damn election and the only reason why she didn’t was because Jerry Brown got Gloria Allred to put a | Read More »
Rep-Elect Tim Scott Should Primary Lindsey Graham in 2014.
Despite the historic victory this past Tuesday, the Republican Party still has two problems: 1) so called moderate Republicans who are more interested in trashing the party than they are helping the cause. 2) communicating our message to minorities effectively with credibility and with out playing racial politics. There’s nothing wrong with being a moderate Republican, nothing at all. Rudy Guiliani is an example of | Read More »
David Cameron: What a Disgrace.
I don’t think any US conservatives expects any UK Conservative Party member to be as conservative as we expect our leaders to be, but David Cameron is an absolute disgrace and an embarrassment to the party that Margaret Thatcher built into a powerhouse and men like Cameron have helped destroy. Cameron is all style, and very little substance. He wants the UK Conservative Party to | Read More »
React, Repeal, Replace
It has been nearly two weeks since the President and Congress passed the historic, and I would argue catastrophic, health care reform legislation. It is a huge political accomplishment for the president, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. But when one looks at the specifics of the law, they begin to see that it 1) doesn’t really accomplish what the President and | Read More »
ABC’s “V” – A Scathing Critique of the Establishment and Obama
I tuned into catch the series premiere of ABC’s new Sci-Fi series “V” and was pleasantly surprised. Not only is the show well written and decently acted with a good amount of action and intrigue leaving the viewers wanting more. It is a not-so-thinly veiled critique of Barack Obama and the cult of personality that surrounds him. One of the biggest points in the series | Read More »
In his weekly New York Times op-ed, columnist Frank Rich declares, “The G.O.P. Stalinists Invade Upstate New York.” Not that Rich would know how to even get to upstate New York, let alone anywhere in New York beyond the John F. Kennedy International Airport. Rich describes, in a manner which I can only describe as “shriek-y” ,the “battle” in upstate New York, the election to | Read More »
The End Game: A Strong GOP.
As we wait in anticipation for the results of NY-23, hopefully in favor of Doug Hoffman, the Conservative Party candidate in the race over DIABLO (Democrat in all but label only –Mark Steyn) Dede Scozzafava and Democrat Bill Owens, we need to ask ourselves a very important question: If we do run third party candidates, what is the end game? In my opinion, Glenn Beck | Read More »
Those of Us in Blue States Who Can Afford It Should Shop at Whole Foods.
Well, Blue States and Austin, Texas. I’m sure there are Whole Foods locations in Red States too. But seriously, with droves of Libs now boycotting Whole Foods because of CEO John Mackey’s opposition to ObamaCare! And what is not to love about Whole Foods? Yes, it’s got that dreary hippy thing going on, but most of the food is organic and if it isn’t certified | Read More »
We Can End President Obama’s Term Early.
Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said recently during a White House Press Briefing that President Obama was willing to be a one-term President if it meant passing Health Care Reform. Would the president be just as obliged to do so if it meant President Obama’s single term in office were cut in half? The fact of the matter is, 2012 isn’t the only election the President | Read More »
Obama’s Choice: The Peanut Farmer or Bubba.
At last week’s horribly boring and long winded Presidential press conference on health care, President Obama laid out a Matrix metaphor, citing that we could choose a red pill or blue pill, one signifying we do nothing about the state of the health care coverage in our country and the other that we buy into his massive, debt ridden, government bureaucrat system. While Congress will | Read More »
Palin Did the Responsible Thing
In the midst of all the speculation about why Palin stepped down, did any one ever think it’s why she said she stepped down? Palin said that her and her staff were spending 80% of their time fighting bogus ethics charges, and it was wasting the tax payers money. Would you want a Governor working 20% of the time and having them go waste your | Read More »
Dear GOP: Defend Yourselves, Dammit.
According to Mike Murphy, A GOP Ice Age is upon us. Apparently, we’re not going to win because we’ve got to change. Murphy believes demographics, the fact that minority populations are growing is going to make us die. What bugs me about this is that Murphy is essentially buying into the bogus premise of this argument. Who says conservatism can’t appeal to minorities? Who says the | Read More »
You know who else took on her critics?
Margaret Thatcher. And she didn’t have a bad political run, did she? 11 years as Prime Minister, and she was forced out by a phony scandal, but her successor John Major and their party, the Conservatives, enjoyed another 7 years of power. A total of 18 years of successful conservative governance. The United Kingdom was much better off as they handed power over to Tony | Read More »
What Does the Obama Admin. Have Against “England”?
First, the president returns the bust of Winston Churchill to the Brits. Then, we gives a wimpy bow to the Queen and Michelle went right in for the handshake without a curtsey (the White House press office insisted she curtsied off camera). Presidents aren’t supposed to royalty, as they represent the sovereign of the United States, which is the People of the United States of | Read More »
To GOP Who Say We Need To Support Sotomayor Because She’s Hispanic….
Why aren’t you supporting Marco Rubio over Charlie Crist for the senate? If this is about race and appealing to Hispanics and proving to Hispanics that we are not anti-Hispanic, Why are you supporting what we supposedly need to rid ourselves of: an old, white, white-haired man over we we supposedly need: a young, attractive minoirity? The reason of course is the whole identity argument | Read More »
My California Dogooder Enviro-nut Nightmare
Ladies and Gentleman, I can now personally attest to the fact that the environmentalists are making the state of California absolutely unbareable to live in. My car registration was due in August of last year, I went and paid it and I was due for a smog. I took my car down to the smog station and when the guy opened my hood, he looked | Read More »
New GOP.com: looks pretty good!
Good branding goes beyond just having a nice logo or website. But it’d defintely a step in the right direction. It looks really good. Simple. To the point. I’m not crazy about us advertising proudly that we’re the “Grand Ol’ Party”, but it’s pretty darn good. What I would say to Chairman Steele is that the Republican Party needs to look at their core principles | Read More »
Obama is Not Spock
I must admit, I am a recent Trekkie convert (and I know Star Trek’s legions of fans would say this is blasphemy because I like Stark Trek now because of the new movie.), but this whole business about Obama being Spock is really ridiculous. This has become the left’s new favorite hobby and learn to love it because it’s going to happen every time a | Read More »
How Much Further to the Left Do We Move Before Becoming Democrats?
Gen. Colin Powell suggested last week that the Republican party moderate in an attempt to expand our tent and attract more voters? To this I say, we have tried this Mr. Powell and the American people hated it. In the midst of an economic crisis the media insists was created by the deregulation and tax relief provided by the Bush administration (which is completely false), | Read More »
Bristol Palin and the Immaturity of the Left
I recently watched the series of interviews Larry King did with the ladies of “The View” and at least twice Larry brought up Bristol Palin and her becoming a spokesperson for The Candie’s Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed at preventing teen pregnancy. Larry brought up the question the left has been buzzing about since it was announced Bristol was doing this, “What right does she | Read More »
