End of the Week Open Thread: Keep an Eye on John Thune

    A guy I’ve been reading about since the start of the 2008 election is John Thune. We don’t hear much about Thuney but he seems to be a reasonable guy with solid principles and a good track record as a Senator. What do you guys think? You can read more about him on Wikipedia

    If They Won’t Then We Should, and We Will

    Now it’s time for me to come down hard on the Republicans. Simply put: “Cut the Crap!” Where are you Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Eric Cantor, where? These so called leaders have been marginalized by the leftists in the media and in the Congress like neutered dogs, that’s right, dogs without cannons! Come on Paul Ryan, you’ve got to be about what? 6’0-6’4? Stand up | Read More »

    GOP IT Boss Krohn Departs; GOP.com Still Network Illiterate

    So IT Leader Krohn departs the GOP. Too bad, but perhaps it’s for the best. He just wasn’t getting it. Time for jaw, jaw, jaw is over.  TIme for war, war, war.   I actually wrote to Steele in his first 3 days asking him to keep Krohn on board while I pestered Krohn with a few important essential ideas.   Krohn made at least | Read More »

    I Disagree With Rush Limbaugh

    I Disagree With Rush Limbaugh Respectfully, from the viewpoint of a young Republican, Rush Limbaugh made headlines several weeks ago for commenting that he hopes Obama and his policies fail. What could have been spun as an unfortunate slip of the tongue or misunderstanding was instead clarified and repeated beyond any doubt. But, there was a glimmer of hope that the GOP might finally put | Read More »

    Principles Under Fire

    It’s become increasingly clear that in order for Republicans to be successful in any election in the future they must abandon principles for pragmatism, beliefs for political appeasement to demographics and the next generation. But I would argue that while being a liberal myself, I’d rather vote and support someone with principles, than for someone who lacks a foundation or core beliefs. You see principles | Read More »

    Michael Steele’s No Good, Low Down, Rotten, Very Bad Week

    A lot of readers sent me a link to Michelle’s post on Steele, Hughley, and the Nazis. Good Lord did Steele really botch this interview. I thought he was an articulate spokesman. Hughley tells Steele the Republican Convention looked like a Nazi party gathering in Germany. Steele’s response? Well, here’s the unedited transcript from CNN covering that portion of the interview: HUGHLEY: Well, Michael, I | 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 »

    GOP’s Lame Web Effort Still Stinks – Can RedState Do Better?

    I’m afraid Meghan McCain still has it right:  The Republican party isn’t exactly Internet savvy. That’s no secret. This has been a source of personal frustration for me for a very long time. On Feb 1, I posted about the lame effort the GOP had tried at myGOP.com.  18 days later, one can still not log in at elronaldo.gop.com, nor recover a password, nor do | Read More »

    Follow TN’s lead and kick the RINO traitors out

    When I read in my local paper that the House Republicans in Nashville, after having taken control of the House had one of their own band with the Democrats to vote in a RINO for speaker I was not surprised. The plague of Republicans in Name Only is a pox on all our houses in the GOP. When I read that the party voted Kent | Read More »

    A Plea to Anyone at GOP.com

    In my 14+ years of using the internet, I’ve never come across such a problem. I can’t be the only one affected by this. It’s like I’m in the Twilight Zone. I cannot log in to gop.com. I’ve been trying for WEEKS. From different computers even, at home and at work. I enter my email address and password, click “Go” and nothing happens. And I mean NOTHING. The | Read More »
