The Democrats heat up some leftovers for the 2016 Senate races.
Before we get into the meat of this story from the National Journal, let me just note that this – “One of the most underappreciated stories in recent years is the deterioration of the Democratic bench under President Obama’s tenure in office” – has always been properly appreciated by me. I noticed this issue a while back. Sorry, but I felt the need to establish | Read More »
The Jacksonville Panic
Several consultants, Democrat and Republican, clued me in last year on a race that has sailed under the radar in the United States: the Jacksonville, FL mayoral race. Democrats and Republicans alike tell me that Barack Obama used Jacksonville as a testing ground for his campaign strategy and technology in helping Democrats take the city. Registered Democrats outnumber their Republican counterparts, but the city has | Read More »
Russ Feingold Refuses to Decline Super PAC Money for 2016
Russ Feingold is throwing his hat into Wisconsin’s 2016 Senate race against the man who beat him in 2010, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) 47%. Feingold is, if you will recall, a champion of so-called campaign finance reform (McCain-Feingold, anyone?) and a vocal critic of money in politics (or at least the kinds of money Democrats don’t like). So, it should go without | Read More »
Hawaii’s Obamacare Exchange is Going Under
At some point, we have to ask ourselves, “Is there an Obamacare exchange that isn’t an utter failure?” The latest news regarding the Hawaii Health Connector, Hawaii’s Obamacare exchange, might be the worst faced by any state-run exchange in the country. It’s more than just glitches in the system or being millions upon millions in debt. No, the Hawaii Health Connector is in danger of | Read More »
California’s Obamacare Exchange is Running out of Money
It looks like we can add California to the list of states that set up Obamacare exchanges and now are having huge problems with them (alongside places like Oregon and Maryland). Covered California, the Golden State’s exchange was in theory supposed to become self-sustaining this year, but as anyone who has followed the Obamacare rollout knows, it’s not even close to meeting this goal. Things | Read More »
Obama to Americans in Yemen: You’re on Your Own
As we all should know by now, the official government of Yemen fell earlier this year. Among those caught in the chaos that has ensued are a number of American citizens living in the country. The United States has evacuated its troops stationed at an air base in the country, but the fate of those not working for our government are locked in limbo. Writing | Read More »

Democrats, the Party of Jim Crow, Want Their “House Rubio” to Fetch Them Water
The Democratic Party has decided it is okay to let out their inner racist against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%. The New Yorker referred to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% as “uppity” and MSNBC referred to Rubio as “boy.” Now the DNC has prepared a set of graphics about Rubio | Read More »
Harry Reid Unapologetic over Lying about Romney, Because Obama Won
The activist Left has given us ample evidence over the last several months that the narrative is more important than the truth, and Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) 14% all but confirms this in his latest interview. Reid, if you will remember, said the following from the Senate floor prior to the 2012 Presidential election: “So the word’s out that he hasn’t paid | Read More »

Harry Reid won’t seek re-election
This is probably wise on the part of the apparently recently-turned-blues-musician. WASHINGTON — Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to a three-decade congressional career that culminated with his push of President Obama’s ambitious agenda against fierce Republican resistance. Mr. Reid, 75, who suffered serious eye and facial injuries in a Jan. | Read More »
The Hill: Yeah, the Democrats Empowering Boehner Now
After caving to the Obama administration as well as the Democrats in Congress and the media by bringing a “clean” DHS funding bill up for a vote, we here at RedState admitted the fact that Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% now essentially owes his job to the Democrats. Now, the Democrats themselves are willing to go on record as wanting to | Read More »
Reminder: Democrats still lust after taking away people’s ammunition.
The Democrats still don’t want people to have any ammunition, because they don’t want them to have guns. They’re just less open and honest about it now.

Sen. Klobuchar (D-MN) Admits Her Staff To Blame for Scuttling of Trafficking Bill
Last Friday, I wrote about how the Democrats were putting abortion before helping victims of human trafficking. The Democrats incredible defense was that they had not read the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act to find the language inserted by the GOP relating to abortion. Now, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) 6%, a Democrat from Minnesota and the bill’s leading Democratic sponsor, admits | Read More »
