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 »
Dear President Obama: Waterboarding Is Not Torture.
Dear President Obama, I understand you’ve got a bit of a PR problem on your hands in regards to what you call “torture,” while you promised in your campaign that you would end the so called “torture” techniques the CIA used to protect American lives during the campaign, you realize they have worked. First of all, Mr. President, let me say, I don’t believe in | Read More »
President Obama and the Democrats must be stopped….
We didn’t like the big government policies of George W. Bush and we didn’t really want another big government Republican in John McCain. But President Obama and co have shown they have no desire to be bi-partisan, their desire is power and they’re doing all they can to make sure they have a firm grip on it before there’s any chance of them being thrown | Read More »
And Obama Though McCain would Just Roll Over…
Sworn adversary of conservatives (such as myself), John McCain, has become one of the chief opponents of President Barack Obama’s stimulus plan. And the President thought McCain would just roll over for him in the name of bi-partisanship. Appearing on Hannity tonight, Sen. McCain urged the American people to call their senators and oppose this stimulus on the grounds that it doesn’t really stimulate the economy. There | Read More »
Media Reaction to a Palin Presidency.
What if Sarah Palin became the first female President of the United States? How do you think the media would react to her inauguration? Seperating the historical significance from the people, it would be quite the historic moment as America would have effectively elected the first female President of the United States, just as Obama’s inauguration is a historical moment as he is the first | Read More »
Why We Need to Win
AOL political reporter Mark Impomeni is reporting that Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) Is proposing legislation that would abolish the 22nd Amendment, which prevents presidents from seeking more than two terms. He is doing this of course, because Barack Obama is taking the oath of office and the left is absolutely convinced that Obama is going to solve all of their problems. In the last two | Read More »
American Exceptionalism and Where to Go From Here
I, like most Americans, have been appreciating the historic nature of President-elect Barack Obama’s ascendency to become the first black President of the United States. It is a terrific achievement on the part of the former junior senator from Illinois, and one that all Americans can be proud of no matter who they voted for two Tuesdays ago. Like many conservatives though, I have been | Read More »
The Republican ticket in 2012: Sarah Palin for President Condoleeza Rice for Vice-President Think it’s crazy? Why shouldn’t Sarah Palin consider Condi for VP should she win the Republican nomination in 2012? Condoleeza Rice is a foreign policy expert, she’s served the first four years in the Bush administration as the National Security adviser and the next four as Secretary of State. Because she’s a | Read More »
Will Barack Awaken a Conservative Army? You Betcha!
Are we headed for trouble? Yes. Is it because Psuedo-conservatives led by President George W. Bush invaded the Republican Party and grew government out of control? Absolutely. Does this mean Conservatism and “The Age of Reagan” is over as some media pundits are putting it? I don’t think so.
Can a Terrorist Be Rehibilitated?
On unreptenant weatherman terrorist William Ayers of the University of Chicago, Barack Obama said, “Ultimately, I ended up learning about the fact that he had engaged in this reprehensible act 40 years ago, but I was eight years old at the time and I assumed that he had been rehabilitated.”
…..because they want Obama to win of course! Yes that’s obvious, but I posed the question to one of my liberal (a self-described moderate, but liberal) friends, Why is the media ignoring the blatant sexism being directed toward Gov. Sarah Palin. who told me that “The attacks on Palin speak to their disagreements on their issues, whereas the attacks on Obama have to do with | Read More »
I don’t remember exactly what she said, so I’ll paraphrase it for you, “So I was reading the “quote of the day” on my mocha cup this morning from Starbucks” said a folksy as usual Sarah Palin on the campaign trail at a rally in Carson. I was there with one of my great friends who’s a poli-sci major at my university. “It was a | Read More »

Win By Loosing.
I don’t mind when people disagree with me. I really don’t. Diversity of opinion is what makes this country great, one can learn a great deal from their ideological opponents even if it is just trying to figure out how they think. However dreary of hyperbolic their diagnosis of the ills of our country are, I can live with people who have a liberal opinion. | Read More »
