In retrospect I think we should all have foreseen an Obama reelection. In 2008 Obama got elected not based on the Democratic platform, Obama got elected as a person. There was a cult of personality around Obama. Though diminished some, that cult of personality remains in 2012. Thus it did not matter that Obama lied about Benghazi or Romney. Thus it did not matter that | Read More »
So Romney is the only guy who can beat BHO?
For all those who claimed a moderate was the way to go and Romney was the ONLY candidate in the field who could beat Obama I will now entertain your excuses for why the only guy who could beat Jimmy Carter Jr. failed to do so…………….
A Constitutional Republic, Not a Democracy
In case anyone needed a lesson in understanding the difference between democracy and a Constitutional Republic a.k.a. Europe and America, tonight’s results should serve as a clear message. This is democracy in full force. Why did we need a constitution? Why are popular elections not a sufficient means of preserving liberty? A pure unbridled democracy is a political system in which the majority enjoys absolute | Read More »
Status Quo Ante
Like when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, we now know what happens when a candidate so weak anybody can beat him meets a candidate so weak he cannot beat anybody. Americans vote for the status quo. $6 billion later, Americans voted for the status quo. Karl Rove, call your donors.Republicans will keep the House. Democrats will keep the Senate. Obama will keep the | Read More »
Today, Finally, Obama is on the Ballot. VOTE.
Today is the day you’ve been waiting YEARS for. Obama is on the ballot. VOTE Remember how you felt when Mr Bipartisanship said “I won.” Today, Obama is on the ballot. VOTE. Recall the guy who said he was a deficit-cutter trying to spend his way out of debt. Today, Obama is on the ballot. VOTE. Remember the town halls expressing anger at Obamacare and | Read More »
As if you needed another reason:
That’s not Samuel L. Jackson on set in Die Hard III. Remember the billy-club bearing New Black Panthers that were the vanguard of democracy in Philadelphia in 2008? Well, the boys are back, albeit in a kinder, gentler 2012 version. No visible weapons, and this fellow by all accounts had a bit of a sunnier disposition. Still, a dude in paramilitary attire affiliated with a | Read More »
Who The Heck Knows?
Republicans are supposed to be “rah-rah” for Romney today.Democrats are supposed to be “rah-rah” for Obama today.I don’t much believe either side at this point. Democrats are supremely confident right now in Washington. The Republican consultants not so much. It is a reversal from just two weeks ago.Here’s what I do know and do believe.I believe Mitt Romney will win Florida, Virginia, and Colorado. If | Read More »
My Election Predictions
Tomorrow is the big election (finally!), and we’re at that point where everything’s been said and re-said, analyzed and turned over and examined again. And what are we being told? “It’s too close to call.” Really? Enthusiasm is sky-high for Republicans. Mitt Romney is packing people in the Red Rocks in Colorado and got 20,000 people to turn out in the cold in Pennsylvania. Early voting | Read More »
Polling Puts Romney Up in OH, even in PA
Mystical polling genius Sate Nilver has obtained Romney campaign internal polling, signed a non-disclosure agreement, utilized a magical, mystical, sophisticated statistical analysis system (known to some colloquially as “Microsoft Excel”), and has uncovered that Romney is up in Ohio, and dead even in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Nilver immediately disclosed these findings to the media, particularly the Daily Mail because, claims Nilver, they are the paper | Read More »
An Election Night Primer on the House Races
There’s been a lot of attention focused on the race for the Senate this year. The House races, on the other hand, have become a forgotten footnote on the 2012 election map. The reason is quite simple: Republicans will retain control of the House, irrespective of the outcome of the presidential election. At present, Republicans control 242 seats and Democrats control 193 seats (a few | Read More »
Benjamin Hodge interview with Paul Ibbetson – Anti-business attitudes of Topeka paper, Democrat Anthony Hensley
The Topeka Capital-Journal joined Democratic Senate leader Anthony Hensley in: Promoting tax and spend policies that damage businesses Insulting a major business after it leaves town Stating clearly that they expect businesses to ask their approval and permission before making decisions Proposing anti-business “solutions” — picking winners and losers by taking money from most businesses, and giving “incentives” to a small number of businesses Sending | Read More »

This Race is Over
We are less than a week from the election.At this point, I just want it over. I want my life back. I’m worn out. I am struggling to still care now that I have cast my absentee ballot.I think most Americans feel that way. The people of Ohio and Florida are begging for a return to TV ads for male enhancement drugs and self-lubricating catheters. | Read More »
Take a moment to enjoy anti-Romney people’s comments
I work at a newspaper that belongs to a media group who recently endorsed Mitt Romney and is running editorials saying such in all its papers. Granted, I’m a lowly sports editor, but those of you who read what I post often enough know politics is my favorite sport. Once one of these goes in the paper, we then put it online. Luckily, some Obama | Read More »
Do you want to repeal Obamacare?
Claire McCaskill. Bob Casey Jr. Sherrod Brown. Bill Nelson. Tammy Baldwin. Tim Kaine. These Senators and Senate candidates all support or even voted for Obamacare. Importantly, they all have Republican opponents who have a chance to win, thanks in part to the growing support for Mitt Romney in their swing states.
If we want to defeat Obamacare, it is critical that we elect Republicans to as many Senate seats as we can. The sad fact is that we can’t just get 50 and hope to win on a reconciliation tiebreak vote cast by Paul Ryan. You never know if the Democrats might find an anti-TEA party Republican who oppose the will of the voters and come to the other side. So we need to elect as many Republicans as we can.
That means no Republican left behind. George Allen, Tommy Thompson, Connie Mack, Josh Mandel, Tom Smith, and yes, Todd Akin are six key anti-Obamacare votes we need to elect, along with of course Mitt Romney.
We can only do this if we knock on doors, contact voters, and get out the vote for this important election. Please help.

Andrew Sullivan’s Tomfoolery about Obama, Race and the Confederacy
Andrew Sullivan is hoping for attention. That’s the best I can assume. Who is Andrew Sullivan? He is a writer for the Daily Beast and a columnist for the (London) Sunday Times. He purports to be a Conservative but at many turns, that appears to be questionable. What’s the deal with Sullivan? He has advanced a theory about the white ‘Mitt’ vote being the new Confederacy, “I think | Read More »
