Don’t swallow that hook!
The Left’s Plan Paul Ryan was chosen and yips and yells were heard on the right and on the left. The Democrats and their pundits had a plan. They ripped into the Ryan Budget as the end of Medicare. The Romney campaign was quick to point out that the only one to affect Medicare is Obama’s $716 billion dollar theft to pay for Obamacare. The | Read More »
Lead Lined Lifesaver: Wisconsin Exit Polls
Smarting from the whipping they just took in Wisconsin on Tuesday night, Democrats filled the airwaves clamoring that the silver lining from their loss in Wisconsin’s Recall Vote was that Romney lost to Obama by 12 points in the CNN exit poll. They argued that the results from the exit poll shows that Wisconsin has little chance of being in contention for the 2012 Presidential Election: | Read More »
Clinton Disses Obama Campaign
Add yet another Democrat joining the Bain Mutiny group. Bill Clinton disses Obama’s strategy all together and states: There is no question that in terms of getting up and going to the office and basically performing the essential functions of the office, a man who has been governor and had a sterling business career crosses the qualification threshold… When you try, like anything else you | Read More »
When Ron Paul Wins!!
When Ron Paul wins second place over Newt Gingrich in 4 of the 5 GOP contests tonight, it is time for Gingrich to reassess his campaign. When Ron Paul wins over the Speaker by 3% points in most of those contests, and over 17% in one of those contests, it is time for Speaker Gingrich to close shop. When Speaker Newt Gingrich loses Delaware to | Read More »
Why I support King Newt!
I know many at Redstate have been wondering why I support King Newt. Well wait no longer, I will tell you why: Master Historian, Speaker Extraordinaire, The Last Great Conservative Hope will banish the weeping and wailing of timid supporters called Republicans. He crafts supernal words that cut through the media’s disrespect and insolence. He whispers simple truths that make RINOs cower in fear. He has beaten his baggage | Read More »
Keep your friends close and CNN closer…
I enjoy finding out what the opposition is saying in regards to what I care about. It helps me evaluate the competition. I found it especially interesting tonight that CNN decided to take the night off. Sure enough MSNBC had several articles about the GOP debate, but CNN had ZERO, nada, nothing, big fat Martha’s Vineyard zippo. Searching for “debate” on their front page yielded nothing. | Read More »
I’m an American, Not a Bump in the Road
In 2003 in the aftermath of the tech bubble bursting, I was laid off from HP. That was a stressful time, but since the market was recovering, I figured I would be able to find a job. I looked for a programming job with any company. Yet since many of those jobs were headed to India, I figured a defense contracting job may provide some security. I | Read More »
Just finished clearing off Fox News Sunday off the DVR. Three days ago, Herman Cain was on with Chris Wallace and he did a great job. That is until he revealed his weakness, and I was taken aback. First off, I like Herman Cain. He is currently my number two for the GOP nod, anyone who has tangoed with me in the comments sections over the | Read More »
RomneyCare vs. RomneyReform
Sorry for the tome, but this comes from watching Romney’s speech on Romneycare and Romney’s Reform plan. Soren Dayton listed several good questions earlier today for Romney’s health care speech. Romney did not answer all of them, but I compiled those that he appeared to answer with some additional points I was able to glean from the speech. [My opinions are in brackets]: If you | Read More »
Global Warming bites the Dust
Global Warming, CO2 and Energy Policy A new study by Jasper Kok was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Professor Kok is a climatology researcher with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). You can read the article about his study at the dailytech.com. In summary, the computer models used for calculating Global Warming are wrong. CO2 likely plays a much | Read More »
Why BP should be reading Redstate
10 days ago, one solution to the oil clean up was floated on Redstate (pun intented). I quote from my own post: Take several existing booms in the field and surround the areas with the largest oil flows coming to the surface. Park a BP Suezmax or larger Oil Tanker off to the side of the boom and run a hose with a skimming float on one | Read More »
What Plan B?
The Department of Defense has them. The CIA has them. Yet, Homeland Security, FEMA and other emergency government departments seems to lack them. What are they? Good contingency plans. We obviously don’t have enough think tanks coming up with quality plans for emergencies that happen far too often in our imperfect world. From Katrina to the Gulf Coast oil spill, you’d think we’d have smarter | Read More »
Shame on Cindy
Cindy McCain joins the chorus of those praising the moral decay of our society. Time and time again, the voters in our country choose to support the traditions of a strong society and that of marriage. A racous and loud minority continue to cry foul of the will of most voters. Marriage is not just a name, it’s a foundation for our future and our children’s | Read More »
Don’t Tax My Autistic Child!
My daughter has Autism. She has been a wonderful blessing to my family and teaches us many things while we work with her on her challenges. Now Congress wants to tax me right where it hurts, in caring for my disabled child. I rely on a Flexible Spending Account to cover medical expenses not covered by my Insurance. The amount I am able to set | Read More »
The Right Thing to Do Medically
It’s been a while since I posted, but I thought I’d jump in with the fear, uncertainty and doubt folks and see what you all thought about pushing a different agenda in North and Central America. I lived in Central America during a mission for my church. I lived with the people and got to see day to day life. Back home and in Colorado | Read More »
With the heavy North and Mid-Western flood of blue, I’m dis-spirited and deflated. I’m not surprised, but disheartened at the results. The most liberal senator ran a campaign based on the conservative tradition of a tax cut as he ran to the middle and brainwashed the masses. I’m just astounded that his wife had a better resume for running the country than he did, and | Read More »
Don’t Bring a Mitt to a Knife Fight!
As a consistent reader and sometimes diarist at RedState since June of 2006, I had to role my eyes at Erick’s anti-Romneybot post here. It was amazing how quickly the RomneyRage spread among the commenters. I’m waiting for Dan’s five part series on how Romney was against Palin before he became conveniently Pro-Palin. Erick is right in that there are a few former Romney supporters | Read More »
Give me my Beltway Boys back!
I sat down this last weekend to watch my TIVO’d edition of the Beltway Boys. What to my surprise was Huckabee doing on my TV again?! No, this wasn’t a rerun of the GOP primaries, it was Huckabee’s new FoxNews TV show. Thinking it wasn’t a permanent mistake, I started watching the show. I soon fell into familiar feelings of why I’m not a Huckabee | Read More »
RS 3.0 Search
I enjoy the new 3.0 RS site. It’s had a while to mature and get tweaked in speed and stability. Yet, I tried looking for a Search feature. I was confused when I found none. Did I miss a conversation already posted about the lacking Search feature? I looked through the Archive sections and no Search…, hmm, how can I find a topic I’m interested | Read More »
