Van Hollen Dodges Constitutional Question on Pelosi Strategy to Pass ObamaCare
On FOX News Sunday, Assistant to the Speaker of the House Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) followed his own advise contained in a memo leaked to Politico that advises silence on unconstitutional ObamaCare procedure. The Constitution clearly states that bills have to be voted upon in the House before being presented to the President. Leaders in the House are considering a complicated procedure to pass ObamaCare | Read More »
A Tale Of Two Republican Parties.
On one side we have the party Conservatives. On the other we have the RINOs. You’ll notice there is no middle category here. I think that all but the densest, tunnel-visioned and hide-bound ‘old guard’ Republicans have figured out that the Patriot Movement (what they and the lame-stream press love to call ‘the Tea Baggers’) is no flash in the pan, and has just grown | Read More »

Obama, What’s Next?
Obama is like a twelve year old whose skateboard and video game privileges have been taken away. His petulant attitude was in full bloom at the health care summit this week. Eric Cantor and John Boehner, along with John McCain and other Republicans, made the Democrats look pretty silly at times. Every Democrat that spoke had to come out with the obligatory sad health care | Read More »
Humbug – Obama Dog And Pony Phony.
Humbug is quaint Americana for something false, phony or underhanded. President Obama was his usual arrogant self as he demonstrated bi-partisanship to the seventeen Congressional Republicans who attended his health care extravaganza. Repeatedly interrupting Republican speakers and refuting factual representations made to him, the President’s idea of bi-partisanship comprised of one hundred and nineteen minutes of Obama-dominated campaign mode lecturing. The Washington Times stated he | Read More »
The GOP/White House ‘discussion’ on health care, simplified.
I’m going to sum this entire thing up, because the sooner we move past this the happier everybody’s going to be. Republican Party* (in the person of House Republican Leader John Boehner & House Republican Whip Eric Cantor): Mr. President, you claim that you want bipartisan health care talks. Do you have the moral courage to commit to junking this existing unpopular, hyper-partisan health care | Read More »
Demarxists Fear For Obamacare? Opposition Grows.
As if in sync with the cautionary statements coming from various quarters of the leftists’ Clown College, His Anointedness, Madame Pelosi and Dingy Harry emerged from another secretive closeted meeting at the once White House, to proclaim ’significant’ progress towards melding the House and Senate versions of the bill. This three pony carnival doesn’t ring true with what we’re hearing and the herrings being trailed | Read More »

The memo specifically targets vulnerable Democrats and highlights how people in their districts will be negatively impacted.Cantor writes If we can convince enough of these 37 Members (along with the 39 Democrats who already voted no) to reconsider and switch their position on the bill, I know that we | Read More »
I wanted to share this video with you, which focuses on the health care debate and outlines the Republican plan for health care reform.
10 Republican Leaders Who Could Be President
I have enjoyed the recent top ten lists for Republican leaders, Senate races, and the like published by smart observers like Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post and have occasionally ventured forth my own. Most of us who pay any attention to politics have a pretty good sense of the most influential Republican leaders today; and they include impressive people such as Romney, Pawlenty, Barbour, McConnell, | Read More »

Who is Ed Schultz?
I’ve never heard of the guy, but apparently Ed Schultz is an MSNBC host. It should come as no surprise that he is engaging in a level of hyperbole that MSNBC, CNN, and the rest of the MSM gang would be blowing up as the lead story had a Republican done it.Look, if you will, at what they do every time Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, | Read More »
Clarifying Cantor’s Position
Apparently some folks have encountered an intern in Eric Cantor’s office who is doing the man no favors articulating his position on Joe Wilson.Eric Cantor was the first member of Leadership to stand with Rep. Wilson. On Sunday, he said that Rep. Wilson has already apologized, that the President accepted, and it was time to move on.Second, earlier today, at the House GOP Conference meeting | Read More »
Democratic National Committee Accuses Eric Cantor of Stoking Nazism
The Democrats just can’t get their talking points right on Eric Cantor (R-VA). It was only last year when Cantor’s name was mentioned as a possible Vice Presidential pick that the Democrats wanted everyone to know he’s a Jew. They didn’t mention the religion of any of the other potential candidates. Now, however, they are accusing Eric Cantor, who is Jewish, of fostering Nazism in | Read More »
GOP All Stars?
George Will said that Sara Palin was a distraction from a burgeoning group of young, GOP, all-stars. Who was he talking about? Amy Holmes makes some guesses with Will Cain on Off the Page. Watch here: http://tv.nationalreview.com/offthepage/post/?q=NGM1NjMzNjAwZTRkM2ZhNTYwN2Y1MTRjYWJjMzg2ZDM=
Doesn’t Anyone Here Know How to Play This Game?
This is a time of great opportunity for conservatives. Americans are beginning to render a verdict on the ‘stimulus,’ the economy, and the Obama administration’s approach. The nation continues to shed jobs, and unemployment shows no signs of leveling off any time soon. The American people are growing more and more concerned about the deficit. And the Obama administration seems split on whether another ‘stimulus’ | Read More »
Is Eric Cantor About to Fail? Better Hope Not
GET ON THE PHONE NOW According to the online left, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is whipping Republican votes for H.R. 2346, the 2009 Supplemental Appropriations Act. You need to get your members of Congress to toe the line on this. We need to defeat this bill. The GOP had been signaling it would vote en masse against the legislation. That Hoyer is getting Republican | Read More »
