Democrats, primarily, caused the recession and prevent a real recovery

    But didn’t Democrat Obama inherit “the mess” from Republican Bush and haven’t congressional Republicans obstructed Obama’s recovery agenda? This is how a Democratic Party, with no Gene McCarthy (pictured), feels compelled to frame re-election issues given a failed incumbent with no record of popular achievements to run on. At least LBJ declined to run and Ted Kennedy challenged Carter in 1980, but I digress. It | Read More »

    The Democrats Going To Charlotte

    The Republican Party lost the White House to a vastly different Democratic Party in 1992 than the lost it to in 2008. The Democratic Party of 1992 represented an effort by the Democrats to communicate with poorer families, living in what are termed “working class neighborhoods.” The modern Democratic Party views these people as a legacy population that the state will just have to support. The difference in composition between the previous Democratic Party championed by Bill Clinton and the newer Democratic Party represented by Barack Obama has led to a situation that has put Barack Obama squarely on the defensive for the past three years of his Presidency. It may well have been the final impetus for The Jacksonian uprising that dubbed itself The Tea Party.

    Joel Kotkin writes in the Daily Beast about this phenomenon. He opines that “Barack Obama’s New Chicago Politics Abandon Bill Clinton’s Winning Coalition.” He makes some particularly valid points about the Democratic Party and its new coalition that properly address the New Left gravamen of the Democratic Party. This explains well the policy choices this organization would make if they were given unlimited power.

    National Debt To Reach $16 Trilllion During The DNC — But No Debt Clock Inside Their Arena

    There will be something missing from the Time Warner Cable Arena during the Democratic National Convention (DNC) being held this week in Charlotte, NC.

It was the real time running of the National Debt Clock, and as | Read More »

    Abortion is NOT a Women Issue

    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 »

    RNC: People v. Obamacare. [UPDATED.]

    Commendably fast of the RNC: Also, Mitt Romney just finished his press conference. He understands the basics: this is a 500 billion dollar tax hike* on the American people, it will not stand, and so if elected President Mitt Romney will KILL IT WITH FIRE on day one.

    If the Presidential Election were to take place tomorrow, Barack Obama would win a 2nd term by a razor-thin margin. He has basically led Mitt Romney from wire-to-wire thus far, but has failed to put him away.

But don’t worry: the ceremonial anointing of The One will still be taking place at the Bank of America Stadium.
