You Lie, Mr. President!
Vladimir Lenin once said, “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” In the electronic age, the left has hammered this theory home harder than ‘ol Vlad could have ever imagined. Every day for two weeks, Team Obama and their media cronies repeatedly told the story of the anti-Muslim video inciting a riot in Benghazi causing the death of our Libyan ambassador and three other | Read More »
Calling All Undecided and Unenthusiastic Conservative Voters!
You know who you are. You didn’t vote for Mitt Romney in the primary – he’s a moderate, was governor of a liberal state, isn’t consistently pro-life, etc. He’s not your guy. You’re a Conservative – down to your bones. You believe in free markets, liberty, as small a federal government as possible, less taxes, less government spending, less focus on foreign interests and more focus | Read More »
Like a Day at the Spa!
A few weeks back, in the heat of the “skewed polls” debate which erupted when it was learned that pollsters were weighting the democrat components of their polls to give the incumbent an edge and create the appearance that the President had the election in the bag, Dick Morris suggested conservatives visit www.unskewedpolls.com. Of course, I did so immediately and was delighted to see what | Read More »
Obama’s Deficit Reduction Plan
In an interview with the Des Moines Register that was originally off-the-record, the President revealed his plan for deficit reduction in a second term. He said, “So when you combine the Bush tax cuts expiring, the sequester in place [...] we’re going to be in a position where I believe in the first six months we are going to solve that big piece of business.” | Read More »
Election Outcome Results
Ladies and Gentlemen, I already know the outcome of this presidential race. Barack Obama will not be reelected. In fact, the gap is going to be a lot bigger than you expect in Romney’s favor. I successfully predicted long before anyone that Paul Ryan would be chosen as Mitt Romney’s running mate. It’s just a knack I have. The backlash, anger, and justifiable outrage that | Read More »
Muckraking Reaches New Low
Today’s headlines make me hang my head in shame. On one hand we have Gloria Allred and her Democrat clients trying to un-seal court documents relating to a contentious child custody matter in which Mitt Romney testified and, on the other, we have The Donald revealing that Michelle Obama once wanted to be shed of Barack. So what do these things have to do with | Read More »
Election Officials Who Work for Key Obama Surrogate Ignore State Law in Wisconsin
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett is the Obama campaign point man in Wisconsin. The three-time Democratic candidate for Governor (who lost to Republican Governor Scott Walker in 2010 and again in this Summer’s failed recall election) routinely acts as a local surrogate for the President. Barrett enven flew down to the Republican National Convention in Tampa earlier this year to hold a press conference on the | Read More »
At Lynn, Mitt Wins Safe Debate
Governor Romney played it safe, but did enough to secure the win in the final debate at Lynn University. In playing it safe, however, Governor Romney did leave some notable issues on the table. For example, Romney had opportunities to attack the incumbent president’s position with respect to the tragic and preventable deaths in Libya and the faux video excuse propagated to the American people | Read More »
The Taxes Are Coming! The Taxes Are Coming!
Since before they were passed, the “Bush tax cuts” were demonized by the media and the Democrats (redundant?) as being solely for the wealthy. Like so much leftist rhetoric, it simply isn’t so. The tax cuts enacted under President Bush (43) created a 10 per cent bracket, increased child tax credits, and eliminated the marriage penalty, among other things. This writer must be wealthy because | Read More »
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 »
Young Voter Enthusiasm for Romney High While Young Support for Obama Declines
Young U.S. voters back President Obama by a slimmer margin than they did in the presidential election of 2008. At the same time, a surge in enthusiasm can be seen among young voters who support Republican challenger Mitt Romney. This is according to a poll conducted by the Institute of Politics at President Obama’s alma mater, Harvard University. Among likely voters under the age of | Read More »
The Town Hall Tie That Wasn’t
So, here we are, fresh after debate number two. Twitter actually stopped me from tweeting. Apparently, I went too hardcore. It is clear to me that this debate was a tie, if only because both sides are trumpeting the victory of their candidate. I did hear a lot about how rude Romney was, but these same people were silent during Biden’s relentless interruptions, and Biden | Read More »
Small President Clings to Big Bird
Barack Obama, 2008: “If you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things.” Barack Obama, 2012: Big Bird! Big Bird! Big Bird! Today’s lesson in campaign implosions brought to you by | Read More »
The Impeachment Remedy
There is nothing unusual about mere mortals revealing their fatal flaws. We’ve been doing it since the Greeks wrote plays about human tragedy. In my lifetime, Richard Nixon had his Watergate. He used his office to uncover secrets he might have used to get re-elected had he not been caught red-handed. As it is, he left office a defeated man. Bill Clinton had his fling | Read More »
