Colin Powell Endorsed Barack Obama
Today General Colin Powell the former Secretary of State endorsed Democratic nominee Barack Obama for president. I completely understand why Gen. Powell did what he did and quite honestly I don’t blame him. You see like me Colin feels the GOP is broken. He feels as if the Republican party refuses to admit mistakes and move forward for the better. Uncompromisable and unwilling to exercise | Read More »
The Party of Weenies Deserves to Be Roasted
By Rose Pedenko and Tanya Simon The party of Ronald Reagan is looking more and more like those persons who stand idly by and watch strangers get mugged. Except the “mugees” are members of their own party. We would be putting it mildly if we said we’re sick and tired of hearing so-called conservatives (are you listening, John McCain?) tossing about docile rhetoric at his | Read More »
Attn: Senator McCain (For the Final Debate)
Senator McCain:I thank you for unleashing Sarah Palin and going after your opponent’s dubious connections (ACORN, Ayers, Raines, etc.). These attacks, however, are not enough. The swing voters and others are focusing on their pockets and the declining value of their investments. They are bombarded constantly with doom and gloom from the mainstream media, who also sing the praises of your opponent, Senator Obama. This | Read More »
RCP now puts Obama at 50% and McCain at 42.2%
Well after earlier posts and being labled a ‘troll’ I guess this will be treated the same way.For the first time ever this election cycle RealClearPolitics.com has Obama at 50%, McCain at 42.2%.
Witness the reasoning powers of our esteemed Democratic opponents.
[Update]: A statement about the hate crime from Katon Dawson, SC GOP Chair: “This cowardly attempt to intimidate our conservative Republican reform team here in South Carolina will motivate our volunteers and activists to work that much harder for our candidates up and down the ballot. The destructive actions of these vandals should be taken as a sign of desperation. They clearly lack the energy, | Read More »
I Want my GOP Back
Denise Velez says it on behalf of her grandparents, I’ll say it on behalf of myself.I was never really a Republican, but I was an Independent arguing forcefully against the stifling liberalism thriving in Canada and threatening the US for most of this decade. The Nanny-Statism and condescending moral superiority of self appointed social watchdogs. I voted for Bush in 2004, though I was pretty | Read More »
Focusing so much on Obama and Ayers instead of Obama and Fannie Mae CEOs Johnson/Raines is a big mistake.
The McCain Campaign and the GOP should be pounding Obama on both associations, but considering the economic turmoil is what is at the top of the headlines, Obama’s connections with Fannie Mae CEOs Johnson and Raines should be receiving a hell of a lot more attention. What’s more, the Ayers issue does nothing for the races down the ballot. The Democrats own this crisis – | Read More »
Ideas Still Have Consequences
When I was a teenager growing up in northern Minnesota in the 80s, I lived in the only state to have voted for Walter Mondale during the Reagan Revolution. So naturally, to rebel against authority, I embraced that revolution. My teachers were most distressed. grins “He’s bright, intellectual, a gifted speaker, and…and crestfallen whisper conservative.” I took a college level class in Econ my senior | Read More »

Is the Bailout the Chance to Revolt?
I won’t call names or down trod those who think this bailout plan is necessary, but I will still remain vehemently against it. I am very proud of the Conservatives in the House who stood up to the Democrats and did not cave into threats of loosing committee seats.I’m rather sad that we are already looking into future plans. Half of the top economists say | Read More »
200 Votes For A New Majority
Dovetailing on my other diary about how to win the rhetorical battle with the Democrats over the Financial Crisis, I want to explain a strategy for winning back the House. Keep in mind, the Democrats hold the exact same number of seats we held in 2006, and if we play our cards right the GOP could regain the majority because of this Bailout.One of the | Read More »
How quickly the GOP has forgotten
They just adopted their darn platform for 2008. You can read it here.Let me pull out the key paragraph for you:We do not support government bailouts of private institutions. Government interference in the markets exacerbates problems in the marketplace and causes the free market to take longer to correct itself. We believe in the free market as the best tool to sustained prosperity and opportunity | Read More »
Racist Dems cost Obama the presidency?
There’s a whole lot to be spun out of this poll and analysis.Appreciate the significant finding that those on this side of the aisle don’t support Obama because of his positions and the content of his character, not the color of his skin. GOP, the party that makes progress, while Sen. Byrd’s and Biden’s remain stuck in the past. *Lots of Republicans harbor prejudices, too, | Read More »
Joke for the day
A Lesson on Human Nature I was talking to my neighbor’s little six-year-old girl the other day. I asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up and she replied, ‘I want to be President!’ Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there and they beamed proudly. I said, ‘That’s wonderful! If you were President, what would be the first thing you | Read More »
Why Aren’t The Candidates Talking About “The Issues”?
Over the last few weeks, in between devoting untold column-inches and airtime to anything and everything but actual issues, the mainstream media and liberal commentators (to the extent one can distinguish the two) have been complaining – as has the Obama campaign itself – that we have not had a discussion of “the issues” or “the real issues.” To understand why this is happening, we | Read More »
