Election Year Craziness
As we come down to the wire in this election season. I have noticed something, and perhaps you have too: Conspiracy theorists on both sides of this fracas have been working overtime. Never in my life have I ever seen such a level of goofiness. On one hand, it’s entertaining, and yet, on another, it makes me wonder just what is going on in this | Read More »
Bibi vs. Obama
In Florida, a new ad is playing highlighting just how badly President Obama has bungled things with Israel and with Iran. The ad uses Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s words and makes for a pretty sharp message.The same group doing that ad, Secure America Now, has up another ad also playing in Florida. It highlights U.S. Government funding of the Muslim Brotherhood.Want to know why | Read More »
We’ve Come 180 Degrees in the Attack of the Polls
For the past couple of months I’ve been under attack from users here and conservatives elsewhere for refusing to believe the polls were rigged. I’ve certainly agreed they’ve been weighted too much for the Democrats and were, consequently, wrong, but I have never thought it was intentional. I saw no sense whining about it as it just makes conservatives sound unhinged and detached from reality. | Read More »
At Best a Fleeting Tie for Obama. The Reality is a Cancer on His Campaign
I think Mitt Romney won the debate, but not by much. He flubbed a few good opportunities to really score decisive blows on the President, but definitely drew more blood. The CNN polling and CBS News polling confirm it. While more thought Barack Obama won the debate, largely because his last performance was so bad, clear majorities outside the margin of error thought Mitt Romney | Read More »
Thomas Peterffy and the Freedom to Succeed
Thomas Peterffy is the founder of Interactive Brokers, an online brokerage firm. But he wasn’t always. In 1956, Thomas Peterffy, unable to speak English, fled Hungary as the Iron Curtain was lowering on Eastern Europe. By the time Peterffy left Hungary, the communists were in charge. Around 350,000 people, many intellectuals and politicians, were purged by the communists. In 1956, Hungary went through a revolution | Read More »
The American Political Press’s Psycho Moment
I was too hard on Chuck Todd in my earlier post. I apologize to him for it. My point was not to brow beat Chuck Todd, but many people took it as such. I have to conclude I failed to convey the extent of my point because in focusing as I did on Chuck Todd and his remark, I overshadowed the substance of his remark. | Read More »
The Conservative Movement Needs an Amazon.com for What’s Next. We’ve Built It.
If President Obama inherited the way unemployment was measured from the Bush Administration, the unemployment rate today would be reported as almost 15% instead of under 8%. Gas prices have broken $5 per gallon. Our economy has grown at an anemic rate of under 2% over the last 4 years. I am confident that Mitt Romney will win in November. I don’t believe that there | Read More »
Joe Walsh For Congress
Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-08) is the real deal. He is a true conservative of principle. And he will not back down. He not just votes right on these issues, as a freshman member of Congress he has led on numerous Conservative priorities including leading our balanced Budget Amendment fight. Yes there are other Conservative Members like Joe who fight the good fight, and fortunately for | Read More »
If The Election Were Held Today, Mitt Romney Would Win
Just under a month ago, I noted to much criticism that were the election held that day Mitt Romney would lose. The right did not like it, but it was the simple truth. At the time, Romney was flailing about badly without a coherent message. I wrote that he could turn it around, but at that time he had not. Well, who knew Mitt Romney’s | Read More »
Mitt Romney Dominates, Stops President Obama in Four
Leading up to last night the narrative within the media realm was that Mitt Romney needed a flawless, not near flawless, a flawless performance; a game changer if you will. I suspect, given his performance the president and his team arrogantly thought Romney was there to just as we say in the boxing world, “make up the numbers”. This was Tyson v Douglas, Holyfield v | Read More »
Does Obamacare Cover Butt-Kickings?
Ouch. I don’t know how there can still be undecideds out there, but after debate #1, I think there are less of you.

Beating an Empty Chair
We’ve all been critical of Mitt Romney from the beginning of the primary and throughout the general election for his lack of core principles, pale-pastel ideas, flaccid attacks on Obama, and lack of specifics. I have not shied away from pointing out that the Romney convention along with his acceptance speech was a disaster. So what about his debate performance? To paraphrase Michele Obama, this | Read More »
Bam! Slam! Pow! Crash! BOOM!
There was a surreal moment after the debate last night. On CNN, the polling went overwhelmingly for Mitt Romney among debate watchers. Basically two-thirds of the American public who watched the debate claimed Romney won. A majority claimed Romney was with them on taxes, the economy, healthcare, their views of government, etc. He dominated. A CBS poll of undecided voters who watched the debate mirrored | Read More »
Mitt Romney’s operating system has clearly been updated to ass kicker mode. He drew out Barack Obama’s thin skin and petulant side. He wouldn’t look at Romney. He stumbled. He took more time than Romney because he stumbled over his uh’s and um’s. The professor got beat by the Governor. Where the heck did that come from?! James Carville says Romney looked like he wanted | Read More »
Romney needs to do the work that no other American can do
Tonight is the much ballyhooed and expected first debate between Governor Romney and President Obama. Tonight – Mitt Romney needs to do the work that no other American CAN do. None of us in this country has the physical ability to directly confront the man that has led this country to her decline. We can march in the street. We can send emails to the | Read More »
