This Really Isn’t Great News for Mitch McConnell

    Superficially, a poll that has McConnell leading Matt Bevin 53% to 31% looks good for Mitch McConnell. In fact, the National Republican Senatorial Committee has tweeted out the link to the poll as good news for Mitch McConnell.But this past summer there was a 50 point gap in the race. Yeah — FIFTY.Actually, Bevin was down 52 points last summer. So FIFTY-TWO.By December, according to | Read More »

    The “Republican Main Street Partnership” is Democrat Funded

    Steve LaTourette, a former congressman and friend of John Boehner, runs the “Republican Main Street Partnership”. Note the word “Republican.” As the left-wing Talking Points Memo reported a month ago, LaTourette and his Main Street Partnership have created an affiliated SuperPAC called “Defending Main Street PAC.” Along with the Chamber of Commerce and Republican Leaders, the Main Street Partnership wants to take out troublesome conservatives. | Read More »

    Us vs. Them

    Washington at its Best

    Washington is a place filled to the brim with irony and hypocrisy. This week Congress will consider a $1.1 trillion omnibus bill and an extension of dependency-inducing long-term unemployment benefits for the seventh year in a row.  Watch how the irony unfolds. After agreeing to undo part of the sequester for the first two years of the budget frame, as part of the Ryan-Murray agreement, | Read More »

    Thomas Undoubted

    More often than not, I am a pretty relaxed and laid back person. I don’t really dwell on issues, I rarely hold a grudge, and things that probably should get me worked up just don’t. But lately I’ve been fixated on and can’t stop dwelling on an issue that seems to keep cropping up. Most recently it cropped up with the Duck Dynasty issue. There | Read More »

    Pot Politics

    Pot Politics

    Perhaps I am more ambivalent than I should be about the legalization of marijuana. I lean toward letting the law remain as it is, but my hostility toward the nanny state pulls me in the direction of individual responsibility and letting the chips fall where they may. Therein lies my concern, though. Letting the chips fall where they may could lead society to pick up | Read More »

    Does the National Republican Senatorial Committee Turn a Blind Eye to Kiddie Porn?

    We can all agree that it should be a ridiculous question. But given the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s smear attacking radio host Mark Levin today, it is one that should be asked, if only to highlight the absurdity of the NRSC’s attack on Mark Levin.Brad Dayspring of the NRSC alleges Mark Levin entered into a quid pro quo relationship with the Senate Conservatives Fund to | Read More »

    Sen. Mark Udall (D, Colorado) tried to strong-arm CO Division of Insurance into ‘revising’ #obamacare cancellation numbers.

    Executive summary: Back in the beginning of November the Colorado DoI reported that 249,199 Coloradans had received notices indicating that their insurance policies had been canceled. This apparently caused Udall’s office to flat-out freak; they started going after DoI officials to, ah, ‘revise’ those numbers. The DoI was understandably reluctant (read: “refused”) to do so, given that 249,199 Coloradans had in fact received those notices, | Read More »

    Barack Obama Hangs Iraq Out To Dry Like The Wash

    “We will need to retain some forces in Iraq and the region,” Obama said. “We’ll continue to strike at al-Qaeda in Iraq.” Obama made the point repeatedly: “In ending the war, we must act with more wisdom than we started it,” he said a month earlier. “That is why my plan would maintain sufficient forces in the region to target al-Qaeda within Iraq.”

    (Time Magazine)

    The quote above was a strong position held by Candidate Obama during the 2007-2008 Democratic Presidential Primary. We now flash forward to 2014, because President Obama now has a golden opportunity to honor that pledge he made while he sought to establish himself as a credible steward of America’s commitments to the world. You see, Al Qaeda is still very much in Iraq and has taken up dominion over the City of Fallujah.

    This is an Easy Fix by Chris Christie

    First, it actually is pretty brilliant that Christie came out using Barack Obama’s standard excuse of not knowing and being misled. That’s well played.Second, this is such an easy fix. Christie can turn it around quickly. He needs to follow through and see that heads roll. Then he can point out that he has actually fired people, unlike President Obama.This may be the rough and | Read More »

    The Politics of A--holes

    The media that built up Chris Christie as the salvation of the GOP is turning on him in the lead up to Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign announcement. It is what it is.

    The GOP Open Borders Train Revs Up its Engine

    For those of you who thought that our previous warnings about an amnesty push in the near-term were overblown, today’s developments should serve as a wakeup call.  In what was clearly a coordinated effort by the establishment, Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader Cantor issued a call for passing immigration legislation this year during their weekly conference meeting at the same time Chamber of Commerce President | Read More »
