Check out the Politico for the best of these, but everyone is out doing it. Here’s the thing — I have a theory that polling is taking longer to respond to events because of the overwhelming flow of information these | Read More »
The Beginning of the End
Today marks the beginning of the end of Campaign 2012. This week, here in Tampa, Republicans will go through a well scripted event designed to make Mitt Romney their nominee. Democrats will reciprocate next week in Charlotte, NC.The GOP’s convention almost became unscripted with a heavy handed move designed to ensure a coronation and shut out the grassroots from nomination fights.

Let’s Put Ron Gould Over the Top
Who in the world is focusing on some little known congressional primaries in the midst of the Republican National Convention? We are. And you should too. Unfortunately, many of those we elected to the House in 2010 were not the Tea Partiers we thought they were. In fact, a number of them have become conduits for leadership instead of stewards of the Constitution. Honestly, we | Read More »
If Only Paul Ryan’s Plan Were as Radical as the Democrats Claim

With one week to go we should not | Read More »
The Establishment’s Near Sexual Advances on Ted Cruz Are About to Begin
“[T]he Perry-Dewhurst shared campaign team spent $50 million in the past year to ruin the reputations of Rick Perry and Ted Cruz. That’s just sad.” It turned into an atrociously nasty runoff. The same crew who failed Governor Rick Perry’s Presidential bid has now also sunk David Dewhurst’s bid for the Senate and spent tens of millions of dollars in the process. Along the way | Read More »
