Roll Call Reports “GOP Considering Throwing in Towel in Health Fight” [UPDATED]
I reject the premise of this article. From my vantage point, the GOP threw in the towel in the beginning.They chose to message, not to fight. And now they want to go home before Christmas.What they should do is stay until the final vote begins and walk out without a single vote cast.There is no reason for any Republican in the United States Senate to | Read More »
Senators, Run For Cover – The Americans Are Coming, The Americans Are Coming!!
There are a lot of self-important and self-aggrandizing ‘power brokers’ in Washington that won’t be there come this time next year. It’s not just the tunnel-visioned hypocrites in the Senate that are in the cross-hairs either. The House of Representatives has MUCH to answer to the American voters for also. Look for the DeMarxists to try to drive a wedge between the GOP and the | Read More »
2010 And How To Win….
The dimocrats are finally going to have all of their wishes come true. They are going to pass Health Care and later in the Spring they will pass Cap and trade. I am very dismayed at what I hear from the NRSC and RCCC. They are both stating they will campaign on “get us elect and we will roll back SOME of the provisions of | Read More »

Seven Score and Four Years Ago
The United States emerged from the Civil War a vastly different county. No longer could Democrats hinder economic progress so as to protect the slave system. Once most Democrats in Congress had gone with the Confederacy, Republicans met little opposition in enacting their pro-growth economic agenda: a national banking system and a national currency, free land for farmers in the Plains states, land-grant colleges, the | Read More »

Hey, Harry! The supporters of slavery were DEMOCRATS
Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) says that people who oppose socialized medicine are comparable to those opposed freeing the slaves. Another outrageous lie from the Democrats! Just as outrageous is that, by ignoring their party’s heritage, the Republican Party has allowed Democrats and their lefty media allies to mislead millions of Americans about the true history of the Grand Old Party. Every Republican, and I mean every Republican, should | Read More »
What the EPA Ruling Should Mean to the GOP
About the EPA ruling: If it wasn’t apparent in February, or May, it should now be crystal clear now what the purposes of this administration, and certain elements in the House and Senate are. For one, there is a unified plan…from health care, to cap and trade, to banking regulation, to card check. Neither the Congress nor czars are acting randomly. If key GOP operatives | Read More »
“Rule by the Best and Brightest”
Huh? In an otherwise excellent article on perhaps the fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives, William McGurn continues to make the same mistake so many on their side and the Brooks/Frum Axis of Stupid on our side has made all along; Obama and his cabinet/czars/advisors are not the "best and the brightest". They are, maybe, relatively more ‘intelligent’ than the average IQ but to a | Read More »
Winning Issues for 2010 and Beyond: Joe Scarborough
Joe Scarborough’s political philosophy and his brand of conservatism won in 2009 and will continue to win in 2010 and beyond. Focusing on solutions to the big problems and taking a federalist view on social matters wins. Conservatism means conserving our resources, a cautious foreign policy, and a sustainable budget. These are principles Scarborough discusses everyday on Morning Joe. Conservatives would be wise to listen up.

The Worst Kind Of Republican
I wrote a while back about the direction the GOP needs to take going forward. As a former Democrat and former progressive I laid the foundation based on my experiences long ago and the danger I saw whenever principles and integrity were compromised in the name of party and power. Right now in the GOP we have talking heads, who sit on their self righteous | Read More »
The GOP’s Women Deficit
Today I did my end of the week round of the beltway Sunday shows because I like to analyze the comments made by not only the guests on these shows but the shows’ regulars or Sunday panel if you will. On “This Week” with George Stephenoupolus they were talking about Sarah Palin and her upcoming book ‘Going Rogue’. Now, before I proceed, yes I am | Read More »
Beck vs. Scarborough and the Future of the GOP
Two paths forward have emerged for Republicans and they are characterized by the politically similar, Glenn Beck and Joe Scarborough. Beck’s style has the ability to win over red states but that alone isn’t enough to win national elections. Scarborough has the voting record to win over red states and his policy focus can appeal to moderate blue and red states as well. This practical application of conservative principles represents the best chance for the revitalization of the movement.

A Plea to the GOP
It’s been almost a week since the cowardly vote by the Marxists (that’s right I said it….) in the House on the single most dangerous and totalitarian bill ever to be voted on in Congressional history. And yet save for comments from a few reliable conservatives on the Sunday morning circuit and in the beginning of the week, the RNC and GOP leadership is curiously | Read More »

Michael Steele’s Strange Promotion of the GOP
Michael Steele is once again on his strange apology tour for all ‘us’ racist Republicans. If Steele believes this is the way to promote and garner support from Tea Partiers and grassroot activists he is failing. We all know those that live and work in the Beltway of DC have strange and distorted views on those of us who live in flyover land and constitute | Read More »
