Democrats Need to Heed the Wisdom of Darrell K. Royal
It was Darrell K. Royal who originally said, “When you get to the end zone, act like you’ve been there before” In the past few weeks we’ve seen Charlie Crist attack Marco Rubio for not being Hispanic enough. Serously. Earl Perlmutter refused to shake hands with his opponent in Colorado. Jim Marshall in Georgia had an oppo researcher obtain the divorce records of his opponent’s | Read More »
Enabling identity theft, the Organizing for America way!
Executive summary: the Democrats are handing out people’s phone numbers to anybody who feels like phone banking for them. Specifically, they’re handing out people’s full names, city and state, gender, age, political affiliation, and phone number. Presumably, these would be people who contributed to either OfA or the Democrats generally – which means that these are people with credit cards. In other words, this is | Read More »
Democratic Death Panel Watch: October 15, 2010.
The DCCC confirmed to Politico that WI-08′s Steve Kagen had his ad buys canceled; the usual face-saving excuses were made, but the two-term Congressman is a dead man walking (with some help from Reid Ribble). Also, it looks like AR-02′s Joyce Elliott has been likewise abandoned: I don’t think that that one’s really hit the radar yet, probably because it was an open seat and | Read More »
If Democrat Marcy Kaptur can’t tell the difference between Islamic terrorists and our Founding Fathers…
Just one question for the voters in Toledo, Ohio: Which would you rather have: A Congressman who has dressed up for war re-enactments (see Hogan’s Heroes), OR… A Congresswomen that compares terrorists to America’s Founding Fathers? It’s a pretty simple question, but it is the choice you have to make on November 2nd. Last week’s ridiculous attempt by Marcy Kaptur and her surrogates to assassinate Republican | Read More »
Just when they thought it was safe
Just when the Democrats thought it was safe to go back into the election waters, the thing they feared most has awakened, and it isn’t happy.
Yes, candidate Obama told us he was going to “fundamentally transform” America. He knew what he meant by that phrase, but Americans didn’t. What he didn’t know, however, was that his attempts to transform America would trigger an awakening throughout the nation.

Good Mourning, Democrats.
Citizens For The Republic would like to take this opportunity to remind the American people that elections have consequences: Andrew Malcolm calls the “Mourning in America” ad “powerful,” and it is: it’s a deliberate updating of the classic “Morning in America” ad, and as Kathleen Parker notes its power lies in how… sad… it is, compared to the original. It is, indeed, sad: it is | Read More »
Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D) Embraces the Race Card
That was like a double whammy race card. “Vote for me because I am Hispanic and I support immigration. P.S. My opponent is from Vietnam and he’s coming to take our jobs.” Her opponent? Van Tran. As luck would have it, Tran is trying to reach a fundraising goal of $8k by Sept 30th. [hint hint] For more information on this race check out Neil’s | Read More »
Who are you calling extreme, Dems?
Incumbent Democrats are desperate — increasingly aware the public’s taste for their brand of change has waned. Some, in generally conservative districts and states, are reaching for the mantle of the moderate; others, like those in reliably Democratic areas, have not yet begun backsliding on the president on the issues of health care reform and spending. But all — no matter how comfortable their lead | Read More »
Non-Voting Delegate To Congress Demands Lobbyists Pony Up
If there is one sure thing next year it is that Delegate Eleanor Norton Holmes, the Delegate to the U.S. House of Representatives from the District of Columbia, will get re-elected. Ms. Holmes, who calls herself a Congresswoman despite not being elected to Congress to vote on anything, gets to sit on committees in the House of Representatives along with delegates from other territories of | Read More »
Obama’s Iraq Speech: One Page Left Unturned
The Iraq War did not just fade away. It ended with a qualitative result: a spectacular victory for America in the face of long odds and complete vindication for the leaders who decided to stick it out instead of tuck tail and run when Democrats wanted to. Americans have largely forgotten about Iraq and have long since tired of hearing about it. That is in large part | Read More »
A RedState Mission: Get the Dems on Video
The other day in Ohio, House Republican Leader John Boehner said Mr. Obama should fire Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and economy adviser Larry Summers. I agree. But what do Democrats in Congress think? Back in 2006, Democrats were demanding to get Republicans on the record about whether President Bush should keep Donald Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense. It’s time to turn the tables. Go get | Read More »
Actually it looks like the Democrats will be the ones destroying social security
A headline at CNN back on August 13th proclaimed “Democrats to use Social Security against GOP this fall”. There is just one problem. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that it is Barack Obama’s own debt commission that intends to destroy social security as we know it. In addition to raising the retirement age, which is now set to reach age 67 in 2027, specific | Read More »
Obama Blames Democrats For Economic Stall
Andrew Malcolm notes that prior to King Louis Mr. Obama heading off on his ninth vacation he blamed Congressional Democrats for the economic stall. The jobs bill that is stalled in Congress would completely eliminate taxes on key investments in small businesses. It would allow small business owners to write off more expenses. And it would make it easier for community banks to do more | Read More »
Democrats Told To Stop Campaigning On Obamacare
The Politico headline is actually New Dem message: ‘Improve’ health care, don’t talk cost , but that is not wholly what is going on. What is going on is a recognition from the Democrats that after a year of trying to sell Obamacare as a panacea of right thinking and improvement, the voters headed to the polls in November disagree and are angry. Consequently, the | Read More »
90th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage and Dems Work to Repeal the 19th Amendment
90 years after the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was ratified, giving women the vote, Democrats are actively seeking to figuratively repeal the amendment. They are striving for a form of reverse-suffrage, wherein every woman must walk in lockstep with their ideology, or you are not a “real” woman. How dare women step off the gender-baiting, Democrat plantation and vote based on their own beliefs | Read More »
