Stu Rothenberg now projecting GOP to take over the House
+44 I think this estimate is very conservative when I look at Rothenberg’s list of seats in play. Stu Rothenberg is trying to on the best face for the Democrats but it looks like it is really going to be a lot worse for the Democrats this election cycle and Sean Trende over at Real Clear Politics agrees. The comments in parentheses are my humble | Read More »
The latest desperate Democratic attempt at framing the Tea Partiers…terrified of the big smackdown coming in November
Yeah, we can expect more and more of this up until the mid-terms. We have already been seeing some potential GOP congressional candidates email campaigns being blackballed as well. Red State’s Neil Stevens has also been blackballed by Google. Wear that badge with honor Neil Sean Trende over at RCP believes that the Democratic losses could approach 100 seats in the House come fall | Read More »
Important…please fill out your census form and turn it in.
The consequences? Few things make will make Nancy Pelosi happier than large numbers of conservatives failing to respond to the census. If we do not respond, we will not be counted and if we are not counted, then we effectively will not exist. That would reduce conservatives’ power in elections, allow Democrats to draw more favorable congressional boundaries and help put more tax-hiking politicians in | Read More »
Obama still irked: To try to end-around Supreme Court again with campaign finance reform push
The GOP Senate would be well advised to slow everything down to a crawl until the mid-term elections. I’m pretty confident they will given how miffed they are in regards to Obamacare. If there is one thing that has really ruffled Obama and the White House, it is the Citizens United vs. FEC case. The striking down of the ban on corporations running campaign ads | Read More »
The Democratic frantic effort to blunt the point of the spear — Obamacare repeal
As was pointed out earlier, Barack Obama has begun this damage control tour of trying to sell the American people on Obamacare. Aren’t you as a salesperson supposed to get somebody’s agreement (that would be the public) to buy (pass Obamacare) before you decide to go ahead and give them the product? Ramming down someone’s throat never turns out well. Just food for thought. I | Read More »
If you can’t repeal it right away, starve it until you can repeal it — The coming budget wars for 2011 and 2012
Another reason why winning the House back in 2010 is so important. John Boehner (he is going to be one heck of a Speaker) alluded to this yesterday and emphasizes why this fall’s midterm elections are going to be really that important. A GOP majority in the House would allow for a GOP friendly appropriations panel to defund Obamacare for the next coming fiscal year. | Read More »
The People send a message to McConnell, Cornyn or any other GOP congressmen who doesn’t have the spine to fight
(H/T Hot Air) Take note of this CBS poll. CBS polls are not exactly weighted properly. The samples are usually loaded heavily on the Democratic side. 62% believe it is the GOP’s duty to fight Obamacare. That includes 41% of Democrats in this sample. Uh, hello RINO GOP members. Now isn’t the time to crawl away. If there are congressmen in blue states who are | Read More »
Who destroys the greatest economic engine, the American private sector, piece by piece thus eliminating jobs? Democrats do Who mandates and forces this free country’s citizens into purchasing a service? Democrats do Who believes that money or passing socialistic legislation is better and more important than unborn human life? Democrats do Who engages in back room deals, writes legislation in the shadows that pays government | Read More »
State Legislature races are just as important as the federal races this year
Whoa boy. Earlier I was loving the Article 5 convention option in repealing Obamacare. Problem is, Democrats have control of 27 state legislatures, the Republicans 14 and eight states have split houses. Yikes. The option looks great as the states can rise up and challenge the federal government by calling for a Constitution Convention. Problem is, 2/3 of the state legislatures would need to send | Read More »
The Three Roads to Repeal
All is not lost. However, the clock is ticking for our nation. I have very recently doing some research on the repeal options. So it looks like there are three options and one that should particularly frighten those congressmen in Washington. State lawsuits challenging on the grounds of sovereignty and constitutionality of the law in question. As I write this, there are 14 states that | Read More »

Paul Ryan’s Roadmap to financial solvency.
I alluded to getting this information earlier in my previous post. Here is Paul Ryan’s plan and CBO scoring. This would work and put us on a sure path to certain financial solvency. It is a long road and a lot of hard, independent work by Americans would have to be done. But, in the end it would restore our country’s prosperity and give us | Read More »
The 321 Renewal and Repeal — The Entire Battle Plan — What you can do
No entitlement has ever been repealed in this nation’s history. News media are already trying to play up that repeal is impossible (Krauthammer most notably) and it is a new day for America. They don’t realize that it is a new day, but not of what they are imagining. Well, this nation and every generation has overcome their share of insurmountable obstacles. Repeal of an | Read More »
Worth a shot. Motion to Recommit poison pill?
(H/T redneck_hippie) This according to The Hill: Democrats are worried about holding their members together on a GOP motion that could kill the healthcare bill. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) said House leaders are specifically concerned about a Republican motion to recommit that would contain only language on abortion that Stupak originally had wanted to include in the Senate bill. The concern is based on the | Read More »
The mask has been ripped off
There will never again be such a thing as a Blue Dog or moderate Democrat. They are all posers. Anybody who represents the Democratic Party is now a liberal, pro-choice, socialist, freedom robbing politician. Anyone who thinks otherwise, just look at what has happened today. The only way for the Blue Dog and “pro-life” Democratic congressmen to demonstrate their true colors would have been: To | Read More »
Per the Hill, Evidently the unions are furious with Jason Altmire, Michael Acuri, and Steven Lynch in opposing this bill. Now if the unions are that adamant in pressing these congressmen to reconsider, that isn’t exactly a show of confidence that the bill will pass. Just food for thought. Now for the main juicy stuff of the Stupak coalition. If Stupak was a man of | Read More »
Detonate the pro-life congressmen phones: Stupak about to fall for the useless Executive Order (He and the other pro-lifers won’t get any cover from this)
From the Hill: I alluded to this many times last night and either he is the dumbest congressmen on the face of the planet or this was a great big charade all along. This guy is crazy to accept an executive order. Executive orders have to be enforced by the executive branch, can be rescinded at any time and CANNOT OVERRIDE FEDERAL LAW. IT IS | Read More »
Time to really focus in — Encourage Stupak and the pro-lifers to hold. Tennesseans, keep working on Davis and Tanner
Turn up the heat. (H/T redneck_hippie) It looks like Loretta Sanchez is going to be a no. At least that is what FireDogLake thinks and they cite Roll Call as well. Even Eva Langoria is trying to get a hold of Sanchez apparently. Sanchez has a very tough Vietnamese challenger who will score a large Asian vote and might be concerned with losing her seat. | Read More »
Direct vote on the Senate bill starting to turn some Democratic House members’ stomachs again? Also, pro-life groups cutting off Obama and Pelosi at every pass.
There is some interesting things that have happened today. The bogus”Glenn Nye is a yes” story from the AP. Obama, Pelosi, and Hoyer trying to for the umpteenth time trying to fool Stupak with empty promises. The latest being getting a presidential executive order that would ban public funding of abortions. Of course we know this is a useless offer as this would have to | Read More »
Lincoln Davis insurance policy for Pelosi?? Call up his office and demand a public statement declaring he is a NO.
Crafty little weasels. I think I see what is going on here. His staffers have been telling callers for days he is a no vote but will not come out and say so in public. Ask his staffers that if he is a no vote, why will he not publicly say so? The reasons you get should be a lot of fun. Time to upset | Read More »
