An Odd Assumption
I’m looking for help here this morning. I understand that wise and wonderful election wizards like Karl Rove begin the process of predicting election wins by making the (goofy, IMHO) assumption that the incumbent will win all the same states he/she did in the last race. I know they have to start somewhere, but is this a reasonable assumption in this particular race? | Read More »
Mr. Romney – Get Busy, Sir!
Mr. Romney, you were not the first choice of all conservative Tea Partiers and Republicans, but all have come to embrace your candidacy. We were not all happy when you attacked good people like Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich but, realizing that our Republican candidate would have to go up against a street fighter, we were encouraged that you seemed to posses these skills. Yet | Read More »
Election Integrity – An Obama Strategy?
Today, I learn that in Michigan there are over 4,000 non US citizens registered to vote in that state. The Secretary of State there, Ruth Johnson, sees this as evidence which makes voter identification in Michigan critical in order to protect the integrity of this and future elections. Naturally, the very question of voter ID makes United States Attorney Eric Holder’s eyes bulge. Some say, | Read More »
Casting a Wider Net: Regaining Some of the Black Vote
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 »
The downticket implications of Obama losing the suburbs.
You probably have heard already that the McMahon/Murphy Connecticut Senate race is getting interesting: Rasmussen and Quinnipac both came out with McMahon ahead in the polling at this point. Even the Democratic-controlled PPP couldn’t get more than a 48/44 lead for Murphy… and if you look at the trend there you’ll see that this is a steady erosion of Murphy’s lead over the course of the election season. When a candidate is getting at or above 50 and then steadily loses it – which is what happened in PPP & Quinnipac – that candidate is not in a good position. Meanwhile, over in New Jersey: the Menendez/Kyrillos Senate race is not showing the same drift. It’s in fact pretty static (if you look at the 2006 polling, Menendez is in a much better place now than he was then). Menendez is not consistently hitting 50%, but that happens a lot in NJ polling.

The uber-delusion of the Democrats: “The government is the only thing that we all belong to.”
… it shows various Democratic convention attendees’ reactions to the DNC’s infamous statement “The government is the only thing that we all belong to.” As you might suspect (or even fear), the attendees featured largely showed support for a political philosophy that wishes to essentially beat to death one of the basic operating principles of the American Republic, then urinate on its corpse.

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 »
Politico: We hate politics! …Especially now, since it looks like we’re losing.
So, via Jammie Wearing Fools comes this refreshing article where members of the Media whine about how awful this Presidential campaign is, and how they hate everything about it. So why is it refreshing? Well, aside from Jeff Emanuel’s take on the subject, you should also look at sample articles written by the people who were quoted and/or referenced in it:

Join Madison Project’s Code Red Ground Game for Victory
So what are you willing to do in order to save our Republic from Obama and his minions? Despite our historic electoral gains during the 2010 midterm elections, we left a number of seats on the table and squandered even bigger gains. Many Republican insiders blame our losses in some statewide races on the sub par performance of the selected candidates. While in some cases | Read More »
A Map to the Future
I can’t wait until next week. Now that the Republican National Convention has unfolded before us – now that real leaders have showed us the map to prosperity and told us about the journey their individual states have taken toward the goal of more and better – after the nominees showed us the plan and bid us come along for the ride, I just | Read More »
Presidential Panacea – Humility
I learned a lot about a man this week, and what I learned about him brought back memories of another man I knew many years ago. On Tuesday evening, after New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie delivered his speech at the Republican National Convention, I heard a television political pundits talking about Mitt Romney’s facial reaction, or lack of such, when Governor Christie was praising | Read More »
There be dragons…

Not everybody in my household is as committed to a Republican victory as I am. My ancient mother, who shares my life and my home, | Read More »

Operation Swing State
TEAParty911.com just sent out a newsletter announcing “Operation Swing State” that is definitely worth taking a look at. Their plan, Operation Swing State, is so simple that anyone and any group can easily get in the fight to help Mitt Romney win in November over Obama. The plan is simply arranging phone calling “parties” for the Romney campaign targeting voters in the key swing states. | Read More »
On that potentially troublesome Cook County poll.
The Daily Caller reported on a poll today that gave a rather remarkable result: it showed Barack Obama ahead of Mitt Romney 49 to 37… in Cook County, Illinois: which of course includes the City of Chicago. Being under 50% in what can be considered the ultimate Democratic stronghold is not good news for the President. In 2008 Cook County went for Obama over McCain | Read More »
