Financial reform legislation in danger — Scott Brown signals he may vote no on conferenced bill of House and Senate.
Don’t let Organizing for America pressure Sen. Brown again into going along with this legislation. Make the calls to his office and encourage him to vote no on cloture. If he votes no, then the bill is likely dead as Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins would likely vote no as well. Politico is assuming that the financial reform bill’s survival has taken a hit with | Read More »
Stuck on Stupid: Obama and Ken Salazar to issue new drilling moratorium after first one is struck down
(H/T Hot Air) Yeah, this pretty much sums it up visually. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar says he will issue a new order imposing a moratorium on deepwater drilling after a federal judge struck down the existing one. Salazar said in a statement Tuesday evening that the new order will contain additional information making clear why the six-month drilling pause was necessary in the wake of | Read More »
The Democratic suicide run for November gains steam.
First, passing legislation that Americans were solidly against. Now via Hot Air, I guess Hillary Clinton wasn’t bluffing after all in regards to the Obama administration suing the state of Arizona over its new immigration law. Americans are even more opposed to illegal immigration and in support for Arizona’s new law than they were opposed against Obamacare. Obviously, this is a play to get the | Read More »
Kristi Noem (R-CAND-SD-AL) shows very simply how GOP congressional candidates can stamp their ticket to Washington
(H/T Hedgehog Report) “Any vote for a Democratic House candidate is a vote to keep Nancy Pelosi as Speaker” Yeah, I’ve said it a few times. Kristi Noem has begun to hammer Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin on her pro-Nancy Pelosi voting record. The result? 53-41 Now it could be argued that Noem is getting a bounce from winning the GOP primary and there is some truth to | Read More »
The liberal, MSM, GOP establishment worst nightmare. Conservative women in the spotlight and coming into power.
Anyone notice a pattern here? This will be just simply a commentary. First, Condolezza Rice. Then Sarah Palin, then Michelle Bachmann. Now, Nikki Haley. Whenever a conservative woman has begun to lead, exert strong influence in the GOP or is campaigning for a position of executive power, guess what this equals? Frenzied, gutter attacks from liberals, the MSM, and even some covert attacks within the | Read More »
Shameless political opportunism — Obama uses oil spill to push cap and trade
Attempting to turn the huge lemon of incompetency that is his presidency into lemonade. Desperation has reached new levels but this doesn’t surprise me.
Confirmation of Democratic Strategy — Democratic pollster Doug Schoen tells Democratic candidates to run on conservative values for November
H/T Hot Air I thought I smelled a rat. Earlier, I felt compelled to remind everyone not to fall for this ruse that Democrats have used in the past, most recently in winning back the House in 2006. I believe Schoen’s article is spot on and is a must-read. The wishy-washy-wimpy GOP leadership better get its act together, embrace conservatives, the Tea Party, and become | Read More »
Lest we forget — Keep our eyes on the prize and the winning strategy for November
Been kind of chewing the results of some primaries and the PA-12 special election. There are some people kind of sour with the NRCC about Tim Burns not being able to win a district where registered Democrats outnumber GOP voters by 2 to 1. I found the results rather heartening. For one, the GOP base and independents in that district really didn’t show up. The | Read More »
Paging South Carolinians and Red Staters, time to turn up the heat on Lindsay Graham
Seems like Senator Graham wants to help Cap and Trade along. You would have thought this thing was dead a few months back but apparently Harry Reid wants to not put this through the committees and fast-track this thing for passage. Amazing that Lindsay is going along with the “global warming” crowd in which we now know that GW is all a bunch of fabricated | Read More »
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 »
