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 »
The Return of the Politics of Personal Destruction
During the Clinton years, Newt Gingrich and Ken Starr were household names vilified as Republican Torquemadas. During the Bush years, the Democrats turned the Republicans into the party of Trent Lott, Tom DeLay, Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, and Mark Foley. It was this type of politics that candidate Barack Obama campaigned to end. In fact, Obama was often quoted saying we need to get away | Read More »
Cantor asking questions about our IMF money.
So. Last week, Representatives Cantor and Hoyer had a bit of an exchange over where the money we’re giving the International Monetary Fund is going. Cantor wants to know why we’re going to be giving countries that don’t like us at all the opportunity to take our money, and Hoyer wants to know why Cantor is ignoring the way that Hoyer is brandishing Reagan’s name | Read More »
Ten for the Road: Which Republican Leaders Will Lead Us on Our Road to Recovery?
Thanks to my chairmanship of the Executive Roundtable for the Republican Governor’s Association, I have had the privilege of knowing some of the party’s most influential leaders. This, plus concerns on the current Administration’s direction (think assault on free enterprise and march toward socialism) have led me to some early thoughts on who might both lead our party back and who might be our nominee | Read More »
The National Council for a New America Launches — Conference Call Report
This morning I listened in on Eric Cantor’s conference call concerning the launch of the National Council for a New America (NCNA) hosted by Congressman Cantor and Senator John McCain. One of the main points that the two men stressed is that this is “not a contract with America,” but a “conversation” with her. The GOP leaders also stressed that this is an “inclusive” effort | Read More »

Limbaugh is Not Our Leader. He is Our Benchmark…
Limbaugh seems to be enjoying the ride as his sturdy little craft is being carried along by the swift current called the daily news cycles. And the fact that millions more are now tuning in to his talk show hasn’t hurt his Arbitron rating, either. Rush is being touted by friend and foe alike as the leader or de facto leader of either the Conservative Movement, | Read More »

Nancy Pelosi’s Enemies List
Detailed here. Note the reason why Pelosi dislikes House Republican Whip Eric Cantor: Pelosi has good personal relationship with House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio). But members of her leadership cadre are starting to really dislike Cantor, despite their public pose of studied indifference. Part of the reason: Cantor is employing many of the same techniques Pelosi used so successfully to torture former House | Read More »
Its The “F***ing” Economy You Morons!!!!!!!!
I am astounded at watching these idiotic children who are referrect to as leaders of the Republican Party in their hissy fit fight. First of all my five year old grand daughter fights tougher then Eric Cantor, Michael Steele, and Rush Limbaugh fight. OK I know you three are not the brightest bulbs in the circuit but do try to wrap your minds around this. | Read More »
The Orchestrated Effort to Start Limbaugh vs. Cantor
I told you yesterday that the ABC News story saying Cantor rebuked Limbaugh was an organized effort on the left. Today we find out why. The Politico publishes a list of the people Nancy Pelosi hates. Rush Limbaugh and Eric Cantor are the top two guys on the right that she hates. It’s kind of sad Boehner and McConnell aren’t up there. But Cantor and | Read More »
Congratulations to Eric Cantor and John Boehner
If there ever were a time that we needed effective Republican leadership, it would be in this Porkulus bill effort. Even the “pared down” seven hundred billion dollars ($700,000,000,000) is a ridiculous amount of money, and will pave the way for a try at a tax hike, so it’s been essential that we Republicans step back and force the Democrats alone to own that bill. | Read More »
How is this a rounding error?
I mentioned earlier that the Democrats’ math does not add up when it came to jobs numbers. Congressman Eric Cantor has prepared a chart that shows just how screwed up the White House’s numbers are. The White House attributes the error to a rounding error. That doesn’t quite add up though. Small states have significant deviations from totals by the state versus total by the | Read More »
He’s what you might call…a strategerist…and a fine one at that
A good subtitle would be “In Which I gush about House Republican Whip Eric Cantor (R-VA)“. I read a nice tidbit about Rep. Cantor that I got via The New Ledger h/t Erick Erickson. The Ambinder article is about Rep. Cantor’s counter to the DCCC’s assualt on, private citizen, Rush Limbaugh. Rep. Cantor is calling the President’s and his party’s bluff. The people voted for | Read More »
