This South Carolina Voter Nails the Trump Phenomenon
There’s almost nothing I hate worse than the “man on the street” interview, because they always confirm my generally dim view of my fellow man. Occasionally, though, the media finds an average person on the street who’s really clued in to what’s going on and has something insightful to say. Today, CNN found one of these diamonds in the rough. This guy, whose name is | Read More »
Here is One Thing Hillary Clinton Has Tried to be Honest About
The American people do not believe that Hillary Clinton is honest or trustworthy. Poll after poll has shown it. It is the number one thing that is dragging down her campaign. Here CBS Anchor Scott Pelley tries to throw her a lifeline and get her to say that she would never lie to the American people. It doesn’t really go very well, to the obvious | Read More »

Every attack on Ted Cruz bolsters my support for him
I’ve never hidden who I like in the 2016 Presidential race. I was thrilled to enter this cycle because there were so many candidates I could support fully, including guys like Bobby Jindal and Rick Perry. Two of my favorites are still in the race: Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. My reasons for supporting Rubio I will discuss in a future post, but here’s why | Read More »
The Season of Humiliation Continues for Hillary Clinton
2008 had to be a brutally embarrassing year for Hillary Clinton. She entered the year as the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination and become the nation’s first female President. Instead, she was swept away by newcomer Barack Obama and forced to wait another 8 years for her turn. Occasionally during the campaign, both Hillary and Bill would let slip their personal bitterness at | Read More »
Donald Trump Says He Supports the ObamaCare Mandate
Anderson Cooper acted like Mika Brzezinski last night and let Trump get away without answering any serious questions. Trump did volunteer that he likes the ObamaCare individual mandate.

An Ugly Campaign Comes to a Head in South Carolina
Perhaps it was naive of me, but I had high hopes for this campaign season. Unlike 2012, when a pathetically thin bench was unable to muster a serious challenger to the uninspiring Mitt Romney, we had a whole host of accomplished and popular governors who had thrown their hat in the ring. We had firebrands from the Senate to keep us ideologically on track. The | Read More »
The Real Story Behind Rubio’s No Show at Conservative Review Convention
This evening 5,000 conservative activists and voters descended on a South Carolina venue in Columbia organized by Conservative Review, to hear various political speakers and candidates leading up to the long awaited presidential primary. With the polls fluctuating and the state seemingly up for grabs, talking to 5,000 motivated people who might knock on doors on your behalf seems like a great idea. Ted Cruz | Read More »
Four Pro-Gun Senate Democrats Silent on Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee
All four Senate Democrats voted against portions of the 2013 gun-control package. All have A letter grades with the NRA. All are running for reelection in red states in 2018. But none will say if they’ll support a gun-control nominee to the Supreme Court.

Kasich’s Nice Guy Routine Is Destroyed When You Learn What He Did in 2014
Today I was seeing something flying about on social media about John Kasich. He hugged it out with a crying supporter and said “We don’t have enough people who sit down and cry with that young man.” Here’s some video if you can stomach it: .@JohnKasich: “We don’t have enough people that sit down and cry with that young man.” #SCPrimaryhttps://t.co/4YsAkfXUj6 — CSPAN (@cspan) February | Read More »
CNN GOP Town Hall Open Thread
Well, for the second time in a row, Donald Trump will field questions in a town hall format, only this time he will do so with an actual media host, instead of an unabashed pair of fans. Jeb and Kasich will also be there. Open thread in the comments.
The One Time Donald Trump Uses Notes
Let’s say this: I think this Pope ought to butt out of American politics forever. Instead of lecturing Donald Trump about it being non-Christian to build a wall, he should maybe lecture Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders on how it’s not Christian to support abortion on demand. I know our Catholic readers are not going to want to hear this, and I normally steer very clear of | Read More »
Governor Walker Defunds Planned Parenthood, and Governor Kasich May Do So Next
Today, Governor Scott Walker continued to take a stand for life as he signed two bills into law which essentially defund Planned Parenthood in his state. Walker has been an unapologetic defender of unborn life in the Badger State. In July of 2015, the then-presidential hopeful signed a 20 week abortion ban into law. This morning he signed AB 310/SB 237 and SB 238/AB 311, both of which direct | Read More »
