In Support of Jeb Bush for the United States Senate

    On Friday, when we first gave voice to the idea of Jeb Bush for United States Senate, a number of readers and others opined against the idea. The general refrain was “We’re tired of Bushes.” There were some additional “amnesty” and “offshore drilling” chants thrown in, as well. Let’s address these. “We’re Tired of Bushes.” It is a rather noxious notion in a democracy that | Read More »

    Speaker Pelosi Should Be Nervous

    From the diaries by Erick Speaker Pelosi could very well be playing with a ticking time bomb. I am not saying that the House Democrats are likely to blow but the possibility is certainly there. Lets take a look at some things that have transpired since the election… I must say that following the most recent election I was impressed with the way in which | Read More »

    Remember “Senator Anonymous”?

    Mark Kilmer wrote about him here. Mark noted: Unnamed Senator talks to Roger Simon of Politico.com: “I don’t think we have learned much from the election in terms of what people want to see,” he says. “We have the same gridlock.”By the “same gridlock,” he means that party hard-liners, both Democrats and Republicans, will remain in control of the machinery of Congress. And that means | Read More »

    Jeb Bush to Run for Senate!!!

    OK, so technically, he’s only “Considering” a Senate run, as you can see here: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1208/16155.html But there is no way in hell he would ever say he was “considering” a run a mere few hours after Martinez announced he wasn’t seeking re-election if he weren’t virtually 100% certain he was going to run. I’m guessing this was planned. I know he’s gotten some flack around | Read More »

    Today is a great day

    What a great day. One of the chief rino’s, Mel Martinez, announced he is retiring from the Senate. Goodbye Mel you were never a republican anyway Mr. amnesty for illegals. With this great news Floridians have reason to hope for a positive outcome as we have some strong conservatives who could run for the seat. Jeb’s name has to be mentioned, he was the best | Read More »

    Great News For Florida

    Martinez, running hard and fast towards the left despite claiming to be a Republican (good solid record on National Defense – turned left on immigration and the socialization of risk by bailout) has decided to retire from the Senate at the end of his term in 2010. This is good news. Now we will have a long vetting process for primary challengers to display their | Read More »

    Martinez Retiring

    Though no official announcement has been made, Chris Cilliza reports that the Sunshine State’s lone Republican US Senator, Mel Martinez, has decided to not seek a second term in 2010. According to sources close to Martinez – the former beleaguered General Chairman of the Republican National Committee who resigned amid the comprehensive immigration debate – the retirement was prompted by a desire for “more free | Read More »

    Crist Is Not The Future Of The Republican Party

    True, he is popular in the liberal cities in the southeast and along I-4. That is because the Liberals have no one to challenge him and he is a liberal in many respects. But the rest of us in the state (strongly conservative) are seeing the softer side of Charlie reveal itself (along with the liberal ideas and milquetoast leadership). He actually pulled back from | Read More »

    Florida “protected” marriage, too!

    Thanks to “new” voters, Obama turned Florida blue. McCain received only 48.4% in Florida, or 3,938,166 votes. Obama won 50.9%, or 4,142,174 votes, and took this swingiest of swing states. However, the Florida Marriage Protection Amendment did better than either. In a state which requires constitutional amendments to obtain 60% to pass, “Yes” for “marriage protection” received 62.1%, or 4,758,737 votes. “No” received only 37.9%, | Read More »
