Voters Want Less Government. Will GOP Communicate to Them?
Amidst the torrent of polling data on an array of political races and policy issues, it is easy to lose focus on the central point of contention in today’s world of politics. The fundamental disagreement between the right and the left is over the proper role of government. The left feels that government should control virtually every aspect of our economy and our lives – | Read More »
How did the party let itself get hijacked by abortion warriors?
Hold your fire. Did you think I was talking about Republicans? Oh, no. I’m talking about the Democrats. That party has been hijacked by the radical feminist fringe. In a way that mimics the imagined trend of the Tea party, the feminists are pushing losing candidates on the Democrats, and forcing them to pick up losing issues in the elections.
This goes from Barack Obama on down. In a jobs election, he’s talking abortion.

Elizabeth Warren’s Occupiers to attack Tampa’s EMS during GOP convention?
“EMS” standing for “Emergency Medical Services,” of course. Anyway, that’s the claim – and let us not pretend that the Occupy Movement has not been fully converted into a front for the blackshirt anarchists, shall we? The following will be familiar to anyone who watched how the antiwar movement got hijacked by the exact same people: So people have to remember, this isn’t a bunch | Read More »
The Fanciful Political Cross Dressing of Charlie Crist
As the GOP head to Florida, the literal poster boy for trial lawyers in Florida is endorsing Obama. It is not a surprise. Charlie Crist was Barack Obama’s favorite Republican for the longest time. They stood shoulder to shoulder in support of the stimulus. RedState played a great role in helping beat Charlie Crist. Marco Rubio is such an improvement But I do hope Charlie | Read More »
RIP Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)
America lost one of its true icons today, when Neil Armstrong, simultaneously taking for the last time both small step and giant leap, departed this world at the age of 82. The former Navy pilot and astronaut, who left the first human footprints – as well as messages of goodwill and prayers to the Almighty from U.S. presidents and world leaders alike – on our moon, inspired generations of Americans and citizens of the world with both word and deed.

Alan Rusbridger and the UK’s Guardian Do What British Leftists Do Best: Capitulate
A week ago the UK’s left leaning Guardian hired RedState co-founder Joshua Trevino to be a regular columnist about American conservatives. Unlike many American publications, the Guardian hired an actual conservative instead of a poseur. But that was too much. The Guardian, you see, is the left’s property. Immediately, some virulently anti-Semitic leftwing activists began an organized campaign against the Guardian because Josh Trevino has | Read More »
On Lance Armstrong
If you haven’t heard yet, Lance Armstrong has given up on fighting the US Anti-Doping Agency. He’s throwing in the towel. I don’t really have a dog in the fight. I’m never cared much for competitive cycling. But it really does seem horrendous and un-American to me that a quasi-government agency, mostly funded by the government, gets to pretend it is not a part of | Read More »
Not the Behavior of a Winning Campaign
The media keeps showing its rear end. Let me just make that clear. If you are a competent reporter, I’m not sure how you cannot be embarrassed by the majority of those in your profession right now covering politics. From Mark Halperin, to Jake Tapper, to Chuck Todd, more journalists are actually now admitting just how pliable the media is when it comes to Barack | Read More »
The First Likely Voter Poll from Fox News Portends Mostly Good News
Earlier this afternoon Fox News posted their first likely voter poll of the campaign, which shows Mitt Romney leading Barack Obama 45%-44%. Many of us were wondering how the polling would look once the pollsters switch to a likely voter screen – a model which is almost always more favorable to Republicans than a poll of registered voters. This poll of 1,007 likely voters is | Read More »
This, This, A Thousand Times This
Finally, someone has seized upon what I think is THE winning narrative in this election cycle. It used to be that if you worked hard enough you could be successful in America. But in Barack Obama’s America, you have to work hard and give to Barack Obama. It’s all about the team you are on, not the work you do. The website Crony Chronicles has | Read More »
Cayman Islands Based Gawker Media Attacks Mitt Romney for Cayman Island Assets
This is actually pretty hilarious. Gawker, the site that has spent lots of time also ridiculing Sarah Palin and Trig Palin and pretty much writing every other offensive thing you can think of, is now attacking Mitt Romney for having assets based in the Cayman Islands. The Romney camp is gleefully pointing out that Gawker, you may not know, is based in the Cayman Islands. | Read More »
