I would suggest that if Mitt Romney avoids shooting himself in foot he will win this election, and will win by somewhere around 10 points. That’s good news. The bad news however is that he will likely have to win by double digits in order to survive the Obama campaign’s plan to employ a phalanx of lawyers to somehow wrest factory out of the jaws | Read More »
…and even they have to buy gasoline at the President’s preferred pumped up prices The Liberal Case against the re-election of President Barack Obama Reality started mugging this future former liberal Democrat early in my adult political life. It occurred after months of exhilarating 1980 campaign work with Young Democrats for Carter when the President’s Republican opponent asked a simple question in his closing statement of | Read More »
Back in July, ACORN-aficionado James O’Keefe exposed New York union bosses caught on tape showing their appreciation for the concept of taxpayer-funded “shovel ready” jobs–that is the idea of digging holes only to fill them back in and getting the government (taxpayers) to fund the make-work project. Well, Mr. O’Keefe and his hidden camera team have been at it again–this time exposing how how beholden | Read More »
With all the talk of polling and issues that are important to voters, Caleb Bonham at Revealing Politics decided to ask some people in Colorado why they support their Democrat congressman, Ed Perlmutter. The answers varied but all boiled down to one thing: they have no idea why they support him, they just do. Perhaps it’s time for Ed to worry less about how | Read More »
During recent campaigning, Obama has continuously exhorted the value of the auto industry. He went so far as to use their success as an example for bailing out other industries. During his famous “You Didn’t Build That” Speech, Obama said something that has been somewhat overlooked by his other immortalized phrase: “I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and | Read More »
This year, there are 33 Senate seats up for election with 23 of them currently held by Democrats or independents who caucus with Democrats (Lieberman in Connecticut and Sanders in Vermont). Currently, the Democrats control the Senate by a 53-47 margin. Of the 23 Democratic seats, seven incumbents are not running while of the ten Republican held seats, four incumbents are not running. One of | Read More »
There was a time when the Republican Party was associated with civil rights for blacks in this country. Of course, the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, had fought a war over ending slavery and issued the Emancipation Proclamation. It was a Republican Administration that ruled over Reconstruction and passed the Civil War Amendments to the Constitution that granted ex-slaves citizenship and voting rights. Conversely, it | Read More »
I live in a town where there seems to be a church on every corner. My town is also populated by a majority of people of color. Because I know my neighbors to be God-fearing people and governed by Biblical principles, it never ceases to amaze me that they still cling to the myth that they are Democrats. (I was even told recently that it | Read More »
Now that both conventions are completed and we have passed the magical date of Labor Day, the campaign for President begins in earnest with the next big dates coming in October with the debates. Before looking ahead, we should look at the recent past, specifically these conventions. One is left with the impression that when all is said and done despite the spin from both | Read More »
Mark the day down. It’s my birthday – I won’t forget. Yesterday we saw the underbelly of the Democrat Party. Rush Limbaugh said before this DNC gathering began it would resemble the Star War’s film bar scene. He was accurate. But it is dubious Rush knew the level of stupidity Democrats could and would display – on camera – before the nation and reporters who | Read More »
That is such a foreign concept. To me Saying you belong to the government is like saying you are a subject of some monarch, or worse enslaved.
You can’t say it any better than Mitt Romney did:
“We don’t belong to government, the government belongs to us.”
It is not surprising to me that the Obama campaign is already trying to distance itself from the ill-conceived tag line by claiming it was neither an OFA nor a DNC video.
What is surprising is that Democrats actually do believe we all belong to the government. Watch the following video put together by the good folks at Revealing Politics after Caleb Bonham and Kelly Maher interviewed convention-goers about the we belong to the government tag line.
Whether liberal drivel in my local newspapers or on the national news outlets, a disturbingly amusing trend has developed with regards to the Democratic Party’s “message.” The final straw was an interview with Charles Schumer (D-NY) on a morning news show with Charlie Rose. Before getting into it, one needs to understand that the Democrats almost to a person are demonstrating a psychological process that | Read More »
Am I the only one who gets a little creeped-out over this stuff? I read yesterday about the vendors outside the DNC hawking souvenirs which have Barack Obama depicted in Holy and Divine ways. Ewwww. If ever there was a President less holy than Barack Obama it would have to be Bill Clinton. Oh. Yeah. He’s on deck this week too. Double ewwww. | Read More »
Let me summarize this NRO article by Deroy Murdock: Democratic (specifically, Barack Obama’s) rhetoric about Bain Capital has not particularly stopped Democratic-aligned organizations from investing with it. This includes groups like government employee pension funds ($1.56 billion since 2008), universities ($at least 425 million between 1998-2008), ‘center-left foundations and cultural establishments’… and my personal favorite: the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CSTRS), which has invested $1.25 billion with Bain Capital.
Seizing upon the Akin controversy, the Democratic Convention- a/k/a Obama Lovefest ’12- will feature some, um, interesting speakers. Besides the likely inclusion of First Lady and First Stumpjumper, Michelle Obama, they have former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm whose achievements as Governor are dubious at best, yet she continues to be mentioned as a possible Supreme Court nominee should a vacancy occur. Then there is Congresswoman | Read More »
