Look at this title and subtitle: great news for Democrats, right? 2012 U.S. Electorate Looks Like 2008 Composition of electorate by race, age, gender essentially the same Yup, horrible news… wait a second. Notice what’s missing from that subtitle? As in, what rather important category? For an election? You know… political affiliation? Yeah, well, there’s a reason for that. In 2008, Gallup had the electorate | Read More »
Left-wing groups have gone to international organizations in the run up to this election, seeking to apply global governance to the United States. The results of this is that the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE, not the UN as is often reported) has announced it will send election observers, with the implication that Voter ID laws are a problem.
Now, the reason they’re only investigating Republican-run areas is that Republicans would never run to the OSCE or anyone else to interfere with American elections. But that said, we must not let the OSCE observers think they are above the law. The OSCE is a voluntary organization and it has no binding authority over anyone, which is why Texas Attorney General Grag Abbott has warned the OSCE that Texas laws will apply, including bars on unlawful entry of polling places.
I find it terribly entertaining to watch talking man-heads wax eloquent about what motivates female voters. I suppose they have stacks of data about how women select candidates. I’m even sure those data reflect that some women choose the “handsome” candidate. To my everlasting shame, my mother voted for Bill Clinton. Twice. Not because he was particularly gifted in foreign policy or economics, but | Read More »
With the second of three debates between the Presidential candidates in the history books this morning, I can’t help but feel optimistic about Mitt Romney’s performance and – more importantly – his prospects for the big win in November. I’m becoming more confident every day that this President will be living in a different house come mid-January. Wahoo! Of course, thoughts of what Barack | Read More »
Two women from two different perspectives have divergent points of view on why the attack of the US Embassy in Benghazi, Libya has remained news. One woman, Obama’s Mouth of Sauron, Stephanie Cutter, approaches the issue from altitude and distance. Another woman, the mother of the now departed Sean Smith, wants to know how her son died, and why the US Government doesn’t give her answers. The contrast is telling. It tells us just how far away the Obama Administration is from the actual concerns of the Little Guy they so piously claim to serve and defend.
Jeff Emanuel gave Red State readers a good description of Stephanie Cutter’s spin. The spin shows an obdurate lack of basic human empathy for the dead. It shows just how utterly self-preservationist the administration has been concerning the events of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi Libya. Cutter is shown below claiming the issue only has traction because Mitt Romney is exploiting it.
I’ll raise some hackles this fine morning, but if you speak the truth, have one foot in the stirrup. So here goes. Joe Biden may have looked like a jerk, an ignoramus and a garrulous, intoxicated blowhard; but he almost had to. It was his job to be obnoxious. It was a professional foul, and he succeeded in making The Romney/Ryan ticket shoot foul shots instead of tearing the rim off with an easy slam-dunk.
There was more positive news for Paul Ryan than I initially believed after I listened to the debate on the radio. I’ll get to Ryan’s positives later. Let’s start off with our friend™ VP Joe Bidenopolis.*, **
For the past few days I’ve heard more than a little grousing from the Democrats about the way in which Republicans seem to be making the horrors of Benghazi, Libya “political.” It makes me cranky. First of all, let us say that lives were lost. That’s tragic and is made even more so when we learn, as we did yesterday, that the loss of | Read More »
Actress Stacey Dash just dropped a bombshell. She has shocked the world. She has peed voluminously upon the pieties of the Tinseltown Apostates. She has audaciously and egregiously thought for herself, and endorsed Mitt Romney for President.
In Hollywood, they like their creativity vapidly unoriginal and their diversity homogenous. There must be blood. (Or at least a gaggle of idiots auto-beclowning on Twitter). Piers Morgan of CNN samples some of the idiots below.
No spoken dialog in this ad. No spoken dialog needed, either. This is where we are, right now. And this is where we’re going to stay, because the people running things right now don’t think that they need to change. Mitt Romney for President.
So, I had the opportunity to talk with Senator Marco Rubio last night, and ask him a question. I’ll spare you the verbal tics and whatnot: what I asked Rubio, effectively, was “What advice did the Romney campaign take heed off, out of all of New Media’s unsolicited offerings along those lines?” This is how Rubio responded: Rubio 10/03/2012 The funny part was: at the | Read More »
Dr. Campbell has stated “I oppose Obamacare and will make every effort to create a firewall against the unconstitutional encroachment on our great state”. It is true that Obamacare is unconstitutional and for that reason alone it should not be law in Texas. The Supreme Court ruled that the individual mandate was constitutional and some of the funding provisions were unconstitutional however the totality of | Read More »
When I was a little girl, I usually spent half my time at Saturday movie matinees with my hands covering my eyes. To this day, I’m apt to cover my eyes when there is a graphic scene in a movie, or even when the background music of the program I’m watching begins to sound sinister. I have hated violence and blood all of my life. | Read More »
FEARLESS LEADER? The Despondent Correspondent Dr. Jim Gschwind Remember “Fearless Leader” from the old Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon? (Yes I know I just dated myself or I could say I couldn’t avoid watching it because my kids were watching it like most of you would argue). We have “fearless Leader” today of course and we could substitute “Boris” as our Vice President and | Read More »
Global Warming News? To Whom? The Despondent Correspondent Dr. Jim Gschwind I’ll make this short and sweet. The same quasi-scientists who warned us of an ice age in the 70s keep trying to make things “fit” their scheme of things. Only because political correctness, grants and offers of big money dictate that they do so. I’ve been saying for at least two years | Read More »
In my morning reading, I learned that – at long last – there has been done a truly informative televised interview with the President of the United States. Perhaps not surprisingly, it wasn’t done by the main stream media. The interview was a forum at the University of Miami televised by Univision in which Obama was given no quarter. Interviewers pressed the President on | Read More »
