OH-15: Stivers widens lead
First the good news:: The final vote tallies from Madison County were released this morning, and they continue to build the small lead that Republican congressional candidate Steve Stivers has over his Democratic rival, Mary Jo Kilroy. With provisional and late-absentee ballots added to the total, Stivers picked up 373 votes from Madison County and Kilroy gained 258. That enlarges Stivers’ overall lead by 115 | Read More »
What would YOU spend your $3,271 Bailout Check on? A “Bailout” to “Believe in”
As discussions go on and on over whom to Bailout next, and with how much Taxpayer money to add directly to the National Debt, the Pay-Go crowd (what Democrats mean by that is, Pay for Votes and Go unaccountable) prepares a new Stimulus plan. AP: The latest federal moves raised U.S. commitments to contain the financial crisis to nearly $7 trillion. With $700 Billion (TARP) | Read More »
Stealing Minnesota: If at first you don’t succeed, change the rules
What is it about guys named Al trying to change election rules after the election is over? Geez. Franekn has filed suit with a favorable judge in a favorable county demanding the right to dig through rejected absentee ballots. It’s against the rules, mind you, so Franken is demanding the rules be changed. Opening up the rejected-ballot question is also a recipe for potential fraud. | Read More »
Eric Holder (Obama AG) puts Elian Gonzalez back in the MSM (as well as other “judgement” issues)
Discussion of Holder bio (Fox news: Eric Holder being Vetted for Obama AG) involves the Bill Clinton Pardons (including Marc Rich), but for some reason I’ve seen more coverage regarding the Elian Gonzalez situation (all elements can be part of this thread discussion). To start off this discussion I wanted to recap the Gonzalez “situation,” but instead I decided I would just bring forth [with | Read More »

Yes, President-Elect Obama. I want someone who does virtually nothing to combat illegal immigration to run Homeland Security!
Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano will head the Department of Homeland Security. This is like having the fox guard the hen house. This is quite possibly the worst appointment Barack Obama can make, unless he taps Chuck Hagel to run the DoD. Here we have a governor who does practically nothing to defend the border with Mexico, and our great leader wants her to help come | Read More »
Victory in Iraq Day: November 22, 2008
Zombietime.com has decided to declare this Saturday, November 22, 2008 to be Victory in Iraq Day: We won. The Iraq War is over. I declare November 22, 2008 to be “Victory in Iraq Day.” (Hereafter known as “VI Day.”) By every measure, The United States and coalition forces have conclusively defeated all enemies in Iraq, pacified the country, deposed the previous regime, successfully helped to | Read More »
Let us be Republicans again!
Why are the moderates of the party still talking about what it takes to win elections?!? These are the folks that kept saying the entire election cycle, we need to run to the middle; we need to be more moderate; we need to add some liberal platforms to our party (Global Warming). I think it goes without saying unless you have been living under a | Read More »
This is shocking, but not surprising: The video was prepared by John Ziegler, who also commissioned a poll to see what the average voter learned during the 2008 campaign. The result: 57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing) 81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing) 82.6% could | Read More »
Has the world changed?
After 12 years of nearly complete control of Florida politics, Republicans lost the state to Obama. But, although Obama won Florida, the Democrats didn’t. While Obama was carrying Florida by over 3%, Democrats were picking up only one seat in both houses of the Legislature, which remain overwhelmingly Republican.
5 Myths Of The 2008 Presidential Campaign
Discussed here. Myth Number 3 deserves to be excerpted, since it will cause the netroots some serious heartburn: 3. Now that they control the White House and Congress, Democrats will usher in a new progressive era. Not likely. At first glance, the numbers do look encouraging for proponents of a new New Deal era in government: Obama claimed at least 364 electoral votes and more | Read More »
You pick the lier…candidate Obama or terrorist Ayers?
Okay, I’m officially confused. President-Elect Obama, as presidential candidate Obama, repeatedly told all that Bill Ayers was a guy who lived in his neighborhood, someone who he served on a board with. He denied any friendship beyond that and said it was all made up that his political career was launched from Ayers livingroom. So is one of them lying? Maybe it’s just convenient that | Read More »
Florida “protected” marriage, too!
Thanks to “new” voters, Obama turned Florida blue. McCain received only 48.4% in Florida, or 3,938,166 votes. Obama won 50.9%, or 4,142,174 votes, and took this swingiest of swing states. However, the Florida Marriage Protection Amendment did better than either. In a state which requires constitutional amendments to obtain 60% to pass, “Yes” for “marriage protection” received 62.1%, or 4,758,737 votes. “No” received only 37.9%, | Read More »
A Look At a “New” GOP
I reject the whole proposition that anything is wrong with the Republican Party. other than we need to gt back to being… Republicans. (Sen McCain: Thanks for everything. Now go home, and leave the rest of us alone) There are things that as a group we need to do better. We need to:
Voter turnout truth
The revised national turnout rate for those eligible to vote was 61.2% or 130.4 million ballots cast for president, an increase of 1.1 percentage points over the 60.1% turnout rate of 2004, but less than the 1968 turnout rate of 62.5%. Sorry, no record blowout. Of course, there are still outstanding ballots to be counted (including absentee, provisional, and write-in ballots). But, earlier estimates of | Read More »
