Mitt Romney: A Severe Conservative Who Just Won’t Go Away
When conservative candidates lose their bid for elected office, they tend to fade away from public life and are never heard from again. But for Rockefeller Republicans, losing an election is evidently a resume enhancer for them to continue advising and interfering with Republican politics and policy. Mitt Romney ran as a “severely” conservative Republican in the primary. He pulverized his opponents with an expensive | Read More »
Natalie Tennant’s Election Shenanigans in West Virginia
Recently Natalie Tennant, West Virginia’s Secretary of State and a Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate, accused a third party of sending out misleading election mailings. Perhaps this third party was just doing her job for her. Americans for Prosperity, which recently started a West Virginia chapter, sent out mailings alerting voters in eight counties to update their voter registration. This caused the Secretary of State’s | Read More »
WaPo uses the dread number ‘2006’ when discussing Barack Obama.
I know that the election is in six months, and six months is an eternity in politics – but so is *nine* months.

Absent Factor X, the Democrats are not going to get back the House this year.
The Democrats have to hope for one heck of an X-factor to take the House back in 2014.

The TEA Party Turns Five Today
Today marks the fifth anniversary of the Santinelli Rant on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, which spawned the infamous Tea Party (Taxed Enough Already?). Even if you heard it then, it’s definitely worthwhile listening to once more: The first Tea Party protests subsequently followed on February 27th to protest the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus bill signed by President Barack Obama | Read More »
Mitch McConnell, the Farm Bill and the Power of Logrolling
Earlier today, the House passed the Farm/Food Stamp bill boondoggle. Sadly, only 63 Republicans opposed it. The bill locks in Obama’s food stamp regime, creates and expands numerous Soviet-style agriculture subsidies and conservation regulations, and authorizes more spending on the biofuels fiasco. House Republicans got rolled in the conference committee by Senate Democrats, yet almost 75% of the conference dutifully followed leadership. Click here for | Read More »
Is the Electoral Strength of the Tea Party Waning?
The Tea Party originated in response to bank bail-outs, government stimuli, growing debt, and, of course Obamacare. As a result, there was an electoral backlash against the administration and its policies in 2010 when Republicans made gains in the Senate and surged to majority status in the House. However, it is important that we look at the 2010 midterm elections and Tea Party performance in | Read More »
Former Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D, MT) wants us to ‘cozy up’ to Iran.
His words, not mine. That first link is to the video: text below. “What’s interesting is not that we are going to have a treaty with Iran, it’s going to tip the balance away from the Saudis and the Egyptians to the Persians, the enemies for the last 3,000 years to the Arabs,” he said, pointing out that he had lived in the Middle East | Read More »
Virginia no longer for lovers…of conservatives
The Hunger Games have been pushed too far outside of the Capitol City for the Old Dominion to maintain its former conservative ways. No one should be shocked that Democrats nominate and that eligible American voters elect liberal rogues, even in supposed red Southern states or the nation writ large. Given the successful election and re-election of a community organizer that uses the IRS to disorganize | Read More »

Dear Congress, Your Bosses Are Calling And They Are Pissed.
Dear Members of Congress, Please remember you are NOT at the top of the org chart, WE THE PEOPLE are at the top. You are not there to dictate to us, you are there to serve on our behalf. You are there at the people’s will. You are there because enough people in your districts and states believed in you enough to elect you. When | Read More »
Project Red Leaf – Growing Conservative Voters on US College Campuses
Project Red Leaf’s objective is to grow a conservative voter base on college campuses across the United States. It is based on the belief that increasing the number of registered conservative voters on college campuses will positively impact local, state, and national elections, giving conservatives a better chance of winning or retaining seats. Project Red Leaf (PRL) is a national network of certified Third Party | Read More »
I… do not care if the Iowa GOP is unhappy that it may lose influence in the 2016 election.
You should have seen what I wrote originally. Swear words were involved. Anyway, Iowa’s worried that it may not have the influence that it once had over the Republican primaries: On the surface, Iowa’s Republican presidential caucuses seem healthier than ever: would-be candidates are flocking here mere months after the last White House race ended, drawing sizable crowds and ample news coverage. Senator Ted Cruz | Read More »
Birfer = Retard.
Occasionally the Left is so pathetic in their hypocritical blindness that they simply step into my wheelhouse and all but yell out “Skeet” as they fly down range. I didn’t even have to yell “Haul.” Don’t blink. Otherwise the newest stupid could whack you right between the eyes. According to The Dallas Morning News, Ted Cruz is one of them. Here’s how freakin’ scary it could get.
That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy — the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag — pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.
You see the Cruz was born in Canada to an American Mother and a Canadian Dad. This automatically gives Senator Cruz two legal options for citizenship. He could personally choose to be American or Canadian. And you won’t even need a birth certificate generator to prove it! Actually, Cruz released it.

Preparation, Selection, Election and Governance
Our republic is built on the idea that we, the people, voluntarily elect leaders to make a large number of decisions for us so that we have the time and energy to pursue our own ideas of success and prosperity. We grant these leaders power through our orderly process of elections, and it works well – even with its shortcomings. Our country has developed a | Read More »
No, the 2016 election cycle has *not* started…
…at least on the Republican side. It has on the Democratic side, because the Democrats already know their (and I use the term loosely) talent pool: it’s Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley, Andrew Cuomo, and that’s it*. No, seriously, that’s it: nobody in the Senate or about to be in the Senate is going to be the Democratic nominee in 2016. Even the Democratic | Read More »
