President Obama promises to be incompetently nasty at next debate.
I’m paraphrasing: the exact line from the ABC article was “President Obama says he was “just too polite” and that voters should expect “a little more activity” next week in round two.” How is this funny? Let me count the ways: ‘Too polite’ is not actually semantically equivalent to ‘walked into an ambush fat, dumb, and happy.’ Which is what happened. And while ‘a little | Read More »
The “It’s Party Time, Chumps” Tuesday Memorial Open Thread.
This may be the single best Bad Lip Reading video EVER. Particularly since there may be just the faintest sound of grinding teeth from the people who put it together. Admittedly; it’s pretty much impossibly hard for them to have made Mitt Romney look worse than Barack Obama, given that Romney spent pretty much the entire debate looking remarkably better. Open thread. Eye of the | Read More »
I’ve made no attempts to hide my former Democrat self, as anyone who knows me can attest. I enjoy connecting with other reformed Democrats and sharing stories of the group-think we were a part of, unbeknownst to us at the time of course. That there are so many of us is a large part of why I find it hard to resist debating Democrats today; | Read More »
We won the debate; now, let’s move on to the next thing.
So, I had the opportunity to talk with Senator Marco Rubio last night, and ask him a question. I’ll spare you the verbal tics and whatnot: what I asked Rubio, effectively, was “What advice did the Romney campaign take heed off, out of all of New Media’s unsolicited offerings along those lines?” This is how Rubio responded: Rubio 10/03/2012 The funny part was: at the | Read More »
Vernon Parker (R CAND, AZ-09) to deliver this week’s Republican Address.
The national party is kind of excited about this particular race and candidate: “This week brought more disappointing economic news, and more reminders that President Obama’s weak leadership and failed policies have hurt small businesses and driven jobs overseas,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said. “We need principled leaders who will come to Congress and join Republicans in the fight to help create a better | Read More »

Meet West Virginia Attorney General Darrell McGraw (D).
Say hi to the nice people of West Virginia, Attorney General – NO! NO! BAD TOUCH! BAD TOUCH! That’s a still from the YouTube video below, which shows Attorney General McGraw assaulting an opposition cameraman in that way that we have grown to associate with Democrats with entitlement issues: Apparently, McGraw is being kind of touchy that Republican challenger Patrick Morrisey keeps calling for debates; | Read More »
Republicans Beclown Themselves With Sequester
Last week, I was watching the House debate over the sequester replacement bill, and was struck by the effectiveness of Chris Van Hollen’s attacks against the Republicans. Their absurd gyrations of ideological inconsistency have exposed them to pungent attacks from Democrats. Honestly it’s hard to defend them against those attacks. Pursuant to the Budget Control Act – the absurd debt ceiling agreement from last year | Read More »
NRCC’s New Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04) ad: “This is Our America.”
The NRCC has a new campaign ad out for Mia Love, Republican candidate for Utah’s Fourth District: It’s part of the NRCC’s Our America campaign (you can see the trailer for said campaign here), and we’re getting it to our readers hot off of the presses, as it were. Mia, of course, should be familiar to RedState readers (here and here for interviews, and here | Read More »
Sal Pace (D CAND, CO-03) refuses to admit that he’s voting for Obama (VIDEO).
Tell me again how… puissant… Barack Obama’s name is in Colorado. For those without video, the person on the left is CO-03′s freshman Rep. Scott Tipton (R); the person on the right is state representative Sal Pace, the Democrat trying to replace him (the person on the middle is largely irrelevant*). In the video, presumably of a debate, Rep. Tipton is perfectly happy to state | Read More »
Bread and Butter Issues: Free Markets, Monetary Stimulus, Purchase Power and Savings
So the Producer Price Index (PPP) increased at the highest rate since June 2009 (the “end” of the recession), but fear not, inflation hasn’t trickled down to the consumer end yet, say the wizards of smart. Except that it has. You can use all the data you want, American consumers know they are paying much more for virtually everything at stores, supermarkets, and retailers. And | Read More »
Mitt Romney’s remarks (link to video, including questions).
I personally would have been a good deal more cutting, but then I personally would never make it past the tryouts for the auditions for the contest to be President of the United States. The man understands the problem, which is not “Free speech is provocative,” and never mind what those racists in the progressive antiwar movement think.

Barack Obama does the Mother Of All Punchings Down.
The President went after 2016: Obama’s America. Perhaps the president was hoping 2016: Obama’s America would come and go unnoticed like so many other political documentaries. But seven weeks after its opening, the film is still going strong, prompting Barack Obama to finally respond, which he has done through a lengthy entry at his campaign’s website that calls the movie “a deliberate distortion” of his | Read More »
The Definition of Stupid: Another Legislative Surrender
Get ready for another weak ground out into a double play in the upcoming budget battle. Shortly before the August recess, we reported that Republicans planned to pass a clean 6-month CR which funds Obamacare and appropriates $1.047 trillion in spending – commensurate with Obama’s request instead of the House budget. The idea behind the “deferment” strategy was twofold; to delay the major battles to | Read More »
