NE Journal of Medicine: RomneyCare: 18% increase in Administrators–No Significant Increase in Doctors/Nurses
This is a repost, but given the recent discovery that Romney urged Obama to institute RomneyCare Nationwide, I believe it is important revisit the problems associated with RomneyCare… The Health Care reforms instituted by Governor Romney increased administrators by 18.4% compared to 8% for country but non-administrative positions grew at same rate as states without health reform. according to a report in the New England | Read More »
Chattanooga Tea Party Goofs–Santorum Cut Short
I went to hear Senator Santorum speak today in Chattanooga, TN. I am on the fence about Gingrich or Santorum so I thought it would be good to hear both in person. (I’ve heard Gingrich before) Santorum’s speach was good and well-delivered. He is more impressive in person than on TV (which is the opposite of Gingrich). Athough he needs to incoroporate more applause/attack lines | Read More »
Fox Moving Left?
Last month, I wrote about my belief that Fox News has moved left. Today, Politico wrote about this subject and, in addition to quoting yours truely, they provided some interesting insight: The grumblers were picking up on a strategy that has been under way for some time — a “course correction,” as Fox chief Roger Ailes put it last fall — with the network distancing | Read More »
Is Santorum Right? Should We Pick Manufacturing Over Other Industries? (UPDATE)
Countries frequently believe that they can achieve prosperity by government aiding one particular promising industry over others. They promise increased growth and greater employment if only the government aids the chosen industry. But as the government supports one industry, it does so at the expense of other industries that might have been created. Money that would have flowed to a variety of potentially beneficial projects | Read More »
Romney is Done.
Romney voters support him because they think he has the best chance of winning. N O T A N Y M O R E ! Rasmussen shows Santorum down by 4 to Obama but Romney DOWN BY 10! I stated in earlier diary that Romney would be done if Republicans ever thought he did not have best chance to win. I will therefore stick with | Read More »
2005: Romney Flip-Flopped, Forced Catholic Hospitals to Distribute Morning-After Pill
This is a transcript regarding Romney’s actions as governor discussed by Rush: Before reading, in fairness to Mr. Romney, he did oppose this provision originally and his veto was overridden. However, he overturned a ruling by the Department of Health that would have protected the Catholic institutions from being forced to violate their personal convictions. I believe you will agree that what is described below | Read More »
Romney Voters Care about One Thing: Winning
I love winning. But what does winning mean in a political sense? Is winning just getting someone with an (R) next to their name? Does winning mean just getting rid of Obama? We know we do not want to go down the direction Obama wants us to go. We know Obama believes in state control and this creates a lot of fear in common sense | Read More »
How the Gingrich Saved the Reagan Revolution
Duplicate Post. Please See this post in the Recommended Diaries section: “Oh MY! Gingrich Really Did Save the Reagan Revolution!!!”
Oh MY!! Gingrich Really Did Save Reagan Revolution!
Brian Domitrovic author of econoclasts who claims to be “the only professional historian ever to have written on the topic (Enactment of Reagan’s Supply-Side tax cuts) writes “by the summer of 1981, the supply-side revolution was no sure thing.” His article in Forbes states: “In his first months in office, in early 1981, Reagan actually dithered on moving on his tax cut. He conceded to | Read More »
Gingrich and Santorum Agree: Whoever Wins Fewer Delegates in Next 5 Weeks Will Drop Out
(NOT REALLY. But..well they should agree. This would create excitement for both men. Those who want Gingrich out would not have to vote for Romney. They could simply vote for Santorum. (and vice-versa) The states included in this drop-out bet will be: Nevada Maine Colorado Minnesota Missouri Arizona Michigan Washington At the end, whomever has the fewest delegates from these states would drop out. This | Read More »
Romney Voted for a Democrat. So What??? (Update: OOOPS. Perry Record Not Recongnized–Satire Failed.)
UPDATE: I apologize. I thought posters here at RedState would recognize Governor Perry’s record and would recognize my sarcasm regarding Romney’s lack of conservative record (and in fact his liberal Record) Each of the following are NOT ROMNEY’s but in fact the record for Governor Perry. Romney did create a government run health system, did increase regulations, did NOT create jobs (47th of 50 states) | Read More »
70% of Manufacturers Pay Income Taxes at Individual Rates: Do You Understand this Obama? Romney?
Yes. According to the National Association of Manufacturers: > 70 percent of manufacturers pay income taxes at individual rates. Therefore, any tax increase on individuals is a tax increase on manufacturers. This means every time Obama talks about raising individual rates he would be increasing taxes on manufacturers and killing jobs. In addition, since so many manufacturers are paying at the individual rate, inheritance taxes | Read More »
#1. Require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply to Congress
President Obama last night supported prohibiting inside trading by members of Congress (Congress is currently exempt from insider trading laws) Gee, if only someone had proposed making Congress live under the same laws as they expect us to live under. Oh wait, someone did: REPUBLICAN CONTRACT WITH AMERICA FIRST, require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply equally to the | Read More »
How Many People Did You Add to Food Stamps, Mr. Gingrich?
None. Well, actually 7.7 million FEWER people needed food stamps when Gingrich and Republicans took over house in 1994 and the time he left in 1998. When Bill Clinton entered office 20 million people were on food stamps. By 1994, that number had risen to 27.5 million. By 1998, after 4 years of Republican control of house only 19.8 million needed food stamps–a decrease of | Read More »
Fox News Moves Left: Are We About to See the Birth of Another CNN?
Something is happening at Fox News. More often these days I hear the language of the Left entering their news programs. Conservative points of view are becoming more rare on Fox and/or are treated with scorn. I have not made a log of these events to document these claims, but as someone who is sensitive not only what is said but how it is said, | Read More »
Unbelievable: Is Romney Really Conceding Florida?
The Romney campaign has not yet committed to Monday’s NBC debate. This week, Romney strategist Stuart Stevens told the Washington Examiner that the campaign was becoming wary of debates. The Tampa debate would be the 18th major debate of the primary season, though just the second among the four remaining candidates — Romney, Gingrich, Texas Rep. Ron Paul and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum. “There | Read More »
Why Should I Stay in This Party?
I am tired. Very Tired. Over the years I have watched my party nominate Bob Dole and John McCain. This year they seem to want to nominate Romney. Romney opposed Reagan. Opposed Forbe’s Flat tax and proposes virtually nothing on taxes. Supports Washington directing health care. The Republican party has left me. I want to know why I should stay in this party?
Huntsman to Drop Out: Romney is in Deep Trouble
Why would a man who just got two big newspaper endorsements including the largest paper in SC decide to drop his presidential bid? Well, I give credit to these moderates— they stick together. This is a clear sign that Romney is in trouble in SC. Huntsman’s support is coming from Romney and the man who worked for Obama has again shown his true colors. I | Read More »
Colbert Video: If Corporations are People, Romney is a Serial Killer
This is an example of what will be run against Romney in general. Some may wish to defend Romney. It will be a difficult task. Surveys show Republicans have become the representatives of the working class (Isn’t that funny considering what Democrats talk about) But how will Romney play to the Republican working class worker?

Bud Selig for President
We need someone for President who believes in capitalism. Who will not seek to criticize or regulate the free market. Individuals should be allowed to make decisions that are in their own best interest. If a company’s stock is undervalued because they are not leveraged enough to earn high returns for their stock holders, then it only makes sense that a venture capital firm come | Read More »
