Well the answer to that question is We don’t! The government takes its’ cut of our earnings before we even see it or get to deposit it in our bank account! The impact this has | Read More »
Moderates circle the wagons…for Charlie Crist. What are they afraid of?
The putative leaders of the Senate Republicans, Senators McConnell, McCain and Cornyn will be in Florida soon to raise money for Charlie Crist. “Florida’s Republican Governor Charlie Crist is getting a big boost for his U.S. Senate bid from a bevy of GOP A-listers. Helping to raise money for Crist in Washington are Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) chairman Sen. | Read More »
“Imagine reading a news report that “U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi resigned this morning,”…
and it is expected that more than half of the members of Congress will either resign, choose not to run again or be defeated in next year’s election.” Sound too good to be true? Well not quite. Senior fellow at the Cato Institute and chairman of the Institute for Global Economic Growth, Richard Rahn, explains in a piece at the Washington Times yesterday the revolution that is | Read More »
This is not your father’s politics! (The very real threat is to our way of life!)
I have been following the conservative/moderate debate here and eslewhere for the last several weeks and have come to the conclusion that some here and many of our fellow Americans do not fully grasp the existential nature of the threat posed to our way of life by the Obama administration and the Democrat controlled Congress as well as the threat posed by the tepid reaction to these threats being advocated by many in the GOP leadership | Read More »
You’ll just have to make do with what you’ve got!
If you can’t afford it, you’ll just have to do without!! What is so freakin’ hard to understand here?! Common sense dictates that we cannot borrow our way out of this mess. Our current budget methodology is akin to the gambler that increases his bets in a futile attempt to recoup his already mounting losses! You’ll just have to make do with what you’ve got! | Read More »
Honoring The Original Contract with America.
Many conservatives here, myself included, supported Fred Thompson early in the campaign for President because of his positions on our foundational documents and the paramount role they should occupy in the governance of our country. That said, I think a lot of folks missed the point, possibly with some justification, that the battle wasn’t about him or the other candidates but about whether or not | Read More »
Is this the *test* Joe Biden was referring to?

AP probably thinks this will *help*.
How could we possibly ignore “El Presidente”? HAVANA (AP) — Fidel Castro says a “profound racism” in the United States will stop millions from voting for Barack Obama in next month’s presidential election. Read the article here. h/t to PageTurner at Lucianne.com So this is where the Obama camp has been getting their talking points from. Now I get it! “We must hate — hatred | Read More »
Obama/Ayers makes the bigs!
Dick Morris tells it like it is at RCP. Even apart from the details of the Obama/Ayers connection, two key points emerge: a) Obama lied and misled the American people in his description of his relationship with Ayers as casual and arm’s-length; and b) Obama was consciously guided by Ayers’s radical philosophy, rooted in the teachings of leftist Saul Alinksy, in his distribution of CAC | Read More »
The choice we faced was between pursuing an informed response, or panic. I think we chose panic.”
See the full article here. The money quote: He blamed his colleagues for rushing to another unexamined policy decision that could lead to further unintended consequences. Emphasis mine “To the extent other options exist, however, I believe we failed the American people by not examining them. And we are doing something in haste,” he said. “Many around here find comfort in the notion that something | Read More »
To Mike Pence and the House Republicans; When are you people gonna learn?
So the Democrats screwed you and the American people again? I’m shocked, shocked, to see you guys played like fiddles by the Democrats (again). The problem is evident in your statement here. “Bring a full and fair debate to this floor, and we will achieve a bipartisan result,” Pence said. What on earth could possibly make you think that the Democrats are interested in a | Read More »
Breaking News! Foxes to investigate Henhouse thefts!
Not that I’m suprised or anything, but could there be a more lucid example of the complete and utter fecklessness that has become the hallmark of Pelosi and the House Democrats. Please pardon the barnyard analogy but this is like locking the barn after the horse is already out. Pelosi orders wide Wall Street probe House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has ordered a broad, swift investigation | Read More »
Open Letter to House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) et al.
Dear Congressman Boehner, My sincere thanks to you and the rest of the House Republicans who have resisted efforts by Speaker Pelosi to squelch the long overdue and much needed debate about America’s current and future energy needs. Thanks to your collective efforts, the day of that debate is drawing near. It will have been nearly two months since you began your quest to open | Read More »
Moby/Troll debate tactics by the numbers.
Given the recent, disruptive infux of Moby/Trolls, trash talkers and DKos operatives, and the high probablity that they will continue their attempts to debate with us here at RS, I thought we could use some help in sorting them out. “There is an old joke about prisoners in a penitentiary who have heard each other’s jokes so many times, they assigned numbers to them and | Read More »
The experience meme is a red herring.
The questions about the experience of Governor Sarah Palin are already being parroted by the idiots in the Left Wing Media and even by some here. Experience alone does not a leader make. Much has been written about leadership over the years and I think it would be safe to say that a couple of themes that have emerged as a common traits of all | Read More »
