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.
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 »
With all the focus on the presidential race and some of the congressional elections, there are a number of important state ballot questions that we must not overlook. Many of us claim that conservatism is not on the ballot in many states where the candidates for Congress are underwhelming. However, there are a plethora of ballot questions that deal with taxes, marriage, and Obamacare – | Read More »
One of the most portentous comments ever made by a candidate concerning his own campaign prospects was Romney’s off-the-record remark about Obama having an automatic 47% floor of support. The media attack dogs lambasted him for his “out of touch” sentiments. The reality is that Romney hit the nail on the head months before the pollsters would coalesce around that number. Let’s confront an inconvenient | Read More »
Just over a week ago, I along with fifty other Tennesseans boarded a charter bus and began a five hour trek to the front lines of the 2012 fight for the Presidency. We arrived in southwestern Ohio at roughly 10 PM EST that Friday night. Upon our arrival to our hotel, we received our room assignments and initial instructions. Then we bedded down for the | Read More »
Vladimir Lenin once said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” In the electronic age, the left has hammered this theory home harder than ‘ol Vlad could have ever imagined. Every day for two weeks, Team Obama and their media cronies repeatedly told the story of the anti-Muslim video inciting a riot in Benghazi causing the death of our Libyan ambassador and three other | Read More »
There is an emerging narrative percolating throughout the political world; the prospect that Romney could win the popular vote but lose the Electoral College. The theory is predicated on the seemingly contradictory data between state and national polls. National polls seem to show Romney with a consistent 2-4% lead, while state polls show the candidates tied or Obama slightly ahead in Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. | Read More »
We always talk about the independent, swing vote in elections because those tend to be the persuadables. But party ID numbers matter as well, because those partisan voters tend to split better than 90/10 for their party.
It is for that reason that Gallup’s new partisan ID split, one that mimics what Rasmussen has been saying all along, predicts nothing less than doom for the Democrats, and a solid, national win for Mitt Romney this year.
Let’s see what shiny object the Obama administration comes up with TODAY to try to distract people from both of those inconvenient truths. I’m betting Full Metal Mormonism: nothing like a little casual religious bigotry to keep up the Online Left’s spirits as the hammer continues to descend. Moe Lane (crosspost) PS: Via email, prepared to be shocked by CNN’s Erin Burnett: Executive summary: | Read More »
The second part of Obama’s plan – which I am still trying to figure out why he didn’t release until two weeks before the election – is focused on achieving energy independence. His overall goal is to pursue an “all of the above” energy strategy. (Hasn’t he been saying this during his first term – before he started campaigning for re-election?) To do this, Obama | Read More »
Ladies and Gentlemen, I already know the outcome of this presidential race. Barack Obama will not be reelected. In fact, the gap is going to be a lot bigger than you expect in Romney’s favor. I successfully predicted long before anyone that Paul Ryan would be chosen as Mitt Romney’s running mate. It’s just a knack I have. The backlash, anger, and justifiable outrage that | Read More »
Barack Obama has lost North Carolina and Florida. His ground game is at near parity in early voting with the GOP, the GOP is more energized, and he is going to lose both. But he will not stop spending money in those two states and redirect the resources to Ohio, which is now a must win state for him. He will not do it because | Read More »
With all due respect to the office and to the person occupying that office I must say that yes in fact President Obama essentially lied throughout much of the debate and did so unchallenged by Mitt Romney or the moderator. There were moments when my mouth dropped open and I just could not comprehend the level at which Mr. Obama was willing to climb in | Read More »
Barack Obama and Mitt Romney meet to discuss and debate foreign policy tonight. Will Romney pull his Libya punches again tonight? Probably not, but the Obama team has worked overtime pushing a false narrative about Al Qaeda in Libya. The Romney Team has put together a debate widget so you can follow along. Consider this as well an open thread.
We’re two weeks away and signs point to the Obama campaign flailing about like a chicken with its head cut off — or more precisely Florida, North Carolina, and, of all things, Virginia cut off. Colorado too seems to be slipping out of Obama’s reach making Ohio more and more necessary. Paul Ryan has begun making incursions into Western Pennsylvania, which gets Ohio media markets, | Read More »
