The dovetailing vindication of Herman Cain, the source of the smear’s cunning culprit, and the eye opening reminder that gets us back on track
To every Gingrich, Romney, Perry and Cain supporter on here: Drop your swords and stop fighting each other. It serves no purpose but to distract and deflect attention away from who we should be fighting. You know that to be the current leader of our country that resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. To each of the presidential candidates and their campaigns: YOU CAN STOP THIS | Read More »
Major disappointment in tonight’s debate. I had such high hopes for Rick Perry
B-R-U-T-A-LNot depressed, just flat out disappointed. The Perry campaign is all but over. I just don’t see how he recovers from this. As ardent of a supporter of Perry I have been, I have to call it like it is. So, we’re left with three candidates. A candidate who is the darling of the GOP establishment that is the Republican version of John Kerry. One | Read More »
Voters in Ohio poised to vote for a choice between mass teacher layoffs or higher taxes?
Uh oh Keep in mind that PPP is the pollster for leftist blog Daily Kos. However, their polling tends to be fairly good and accurate on the final few days prior to an election. According to people on the ground in Ohio, the unions have been running some very….emotion evoking ads. You know the type. How the claims like “we have to provide our kids | Read More »
It’s now down to Gingrich or Perry
I just didn’t know about Herman Cain though I really liked him a lot. No matter how slimy and anything but solid journalism by Politico, the way Herman Cain and his campaign reacted to this crisis was downright awful. There was one thing that I learned about Herman Cain from this whole thing, he doesn’t handle a crisis well at all. If he cannot handle | Read More »
Rick Perry comes up with a winner in just unveiled tax plan
Folks, I really hope he starts gaining his feet again. The longer he stays in the race, the better he is going to get. The plans that Perry is putting out are solid and simple to understand. These plans will not be difficult to articulate and sell to the American public. Also, they are simple enough that he will be able to debate effectively without | Read More »
Baggage check: Who is really our best candidate?
As this presidential nomination fight is heading into the election year, the above question really will be the determining factor in whom the GOP voter will cast their vote for to take on Barack Obama.

“I’m running for office, for Pete’s sake, I can’t have illegals.” — Mitt Romney, in a nutshell
DOH! Sometimes it is the most unexpected of moments that can turn the tide and reveal a man’s true character what we all suspected he is. This seemingly unnoticeable slip that was caused by a well prepared attack by Rick Perry is an advertising nuclear bomb waiting to be detonated on the Romney campaign. Mitt Romney is like Barack Obama in a way. Just an | Read More »
The State of The Race: Perry and Romney neck-and-neck…with Herman Cain beginning to get a lot of attention
Watch out for Herman Cain. That straw poll in Florida wasn’t a Ron Paul style hijacking, it was an eye opener. For a man who made some misinformed comments and was left for dead a few months ago, suddenly has new life and people are taking another look at him. Here are some observations: Cain doesn’t have the baggage of Mitt Romney and Rick Perry | Read More »
(Update) Rick Perry vs. Mitt Romney — Courageous Conviction vs. The Pandering Establishment
There are two kinds of public servants. Those whom stick with a core set of principles and beliefs and those whom stick their finger in the pragmatic wind driven by the thoughts of the masses for their own political ambition. The race for the GOP nomination has been a fun ride since Rick Perry entered the race. The last two debates have been excellent with | Read More »
Debate Recap: The Perry pile-on
Anyone have any doubts whom the clear frontrunner for the nomination is now. Rick Perry had a great big bulls-eye targeted on him tonight and every candidate had him in the crosshairs, including non-candidates. A short summation: Michelle Bachmann was actually very good tonight, much more forceful. The problem is that her campaign is fading badly. Rick Perry’s entry into the race completely nuked her | Read More »
Sarah Palin: What was once so promising, has now marginalized herself into a political tease
Harsh? Not really. The ship has already sailed but she has lead her supporters on for too long. Ace pretty much nails it: Remember, she’s going to give you an “adult conversation,” rich in detail, unlike other poltiicians, who speak in “vague generalities.” This speech was said to be two things, and hinted to a third. First, it was supposed to be a “major announcement.” | Read More »
Rick Perry not electable? Latest Rasmussen poll shows Perry only candidate beating Obama
Nothing like a poll that acts as bug spray making the establishment cockroaches scatter. Here’s what GOP “insiders” who lost badly in 2006 and 2008 because they were gutless in sticking with conservative principles are saying: Texas Gov. Rick Perry may be surging in polls of Republican primary voters, but his party’s Insiders aren’t convinced he’d be the best general election candidate. More than two-thirds | Read More »
Washington D.C. against Rick Perry and the ordinary Americans whom encouraged him to run
It has been truly amazing to witness the ferocity of the MSM, Democrats and the establishment GOP trying to take Rick Perry down since he announced his run for the presidency. From activist parents coaching their kids to ask Perry trap questions to GOP congressmen telling Perry to tone down his unabashed rhetoric, to crazy columnists going off the deep end. There is no need | Read More »
Fred Upton needs to take a course in Negotiation 101
Ugh A Republican member of the powerful, deficit-slashing supercommittee vowed this week that the panel won’t touch benefits under Social Security and Medicare. Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said it’s “critical” that current enrollees in those entitlement programs “not see benefit reductions.” “It’s awfully hard to tell someone … who might be 82, that they’ve gotta go back | Read More »
Perry catapults to lead in Iowa caucus with latest poll, Karl Rove and GOP establishment sour grapes attacks actually help Perry.

Political musings of the day: Establishment scheming, telling the truth is not presidential, a bolt from the blue?
Whoa. This Ryan thing is more serious than I thought. I had dismissed this when I heard this but now. If he runs, I will be torn in two since I am 100% all in for Rick Perry. I really wanted Paul Ryan to run but he doesn’t have any type of serious network like Romney or Perry…or so it would seem. Here is the | Read More »
WI recall — Get out and vote today.
Here’s how you can help GOTV in Wisconsin. Simac is looking very good in District 12. Two polls that were released yesterday by the Daily Kos and We Ask America were heavily weighted toward Democrats. Steve Eggleston from the Green Room at Hot Air breaks it down nicely: The big difference is, as is often the case, the partisan weighting. PPP/DKos has the Democrat/Republican/”independent” ratio | Read More »
He’s the man: If the first day in the race is any indication, Rick Perry will win the nomination
New Hampshire doesn’t look like it’s in the bag for Romney any longer: “I feel right at home amongst people whose motto is ‘Live free or die,’ ” Perry told more than 100 Granite State voters last night in N.H. Deputy House Speaker Pam Tucker’s back yard in Greenland. “I intend to compete for every vote in every state. This isn’t a strategy just to | Read More »

The choice our people will have to make in the 2012 elections.
Sometimes a picture is needed, courtesy of Heritage.org is needed to demonstrate how screwed this country is if the status quo of political establishment politics as usual remains unaltered. By 2049, entitlements alone will consume all the country’s tax revenue. All of this was compiled by Ed Morrissey at Hot Air.
