Why Do Conservatives Play Politics so Badly

    From Newsmax: Gov. Jindal to Cheney: Go Easy on Obama Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, frequently mentioned as a leading Republican contender for president, suggested that former Vice President Dick Cheney should back off of criticizing the national-security intentions of President Obama. Speaking on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Jindal said, “I don’t think we should question President Obama’s patriotism or his intentions.” ………………………………… Added Jindal: “At | Read More »

    Jindal Wasn’t There? Prove It.

    Originally written as a response to a comment, expanding this makes pretty good diary material. If there’s one thing I’m getting tired of, it’s people arguing that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) is lying about his trip to Jefferson Parish and helping Sheriff Harry Lee (D-LA) cut through bureaucratic red tape.  The only “evidence” that is offered is that there are no photographs or video | Read More »

    The best and worst Republican leader – a little humor

    Borrowing from an old joke about the European Union, Jindal’s poor performance in the Obama response but great performance on TV the following day inspired me.  (Let me know how well it holds up or add to it!) In a Perfect World…. The punditry/interviews are handled by Bobby Jindal, The speeches are done by Sarah Palin, The principles are championed by Newt Gingrich, and it’s | Read More »

    Jindal will be fine…

    Gov. Jindal’s address to the nation has been getting mixed reviews to say the least.  While the substance of his address far outweighed the substance of Obama’s speech, there has been much criticism of the overall delivery and packaging.  People are saying “he’s not ready” and looking to doom him to failure already and that has to stop.  Let’s recall first that this is February of | Read More »

    When the volcano blows

    Gov. Jindal’s reference to the wastefulness of volcano monitoring has stirred quite a controversy here and in the blogosphere.  The Anchorage Daily News story is here: http://www.adn.com/news/politics/story/702875.html Many, many millions are spent annually watching the tropics and monitoring hurricanes, something that can actually be done by watching a barometer and watching the sky for “mares’ tails and mackeral scales.”  This is obviously an activity of | Read More »

    And the Oscar for best actor goes to…

    Barack Hussein Obama!    Gee, how surprising. Welcome to the Oscars.  American politics. More of the same BS from Obama. No earmarks in the bill? WTF?! What a bold faced liar. I wish Jindal would have challenged him directly on that. I would think he would have had an advanced copy of Obama’s speech. Obama’s first two answers to our problems. Insulating buildings and cap/trade? OMG!! | Read More »

    Bobby Jindal: Selling a Product that Works

    I felt sorry for the President last night.  It is never easy to sell a product that everyone knows does not work and which no one, having thought about it, wants. Gov. Bobby Jindal had an easier time of it.  He was selling a product that everyone who lived through the Carter years and then saw “Morning in America” under the great Ronald Reagan knows | Read More »

    Obama Overbearing, Pelosi Over-the-top, Jindal Over His Head…

      I watched a little of the President’s speech, as much as I could stomach. The bug-eyed plastic-faced Pelosi jack-in-the-box was a huge distraction. She should have been put in the “safe undisclosed place” instead of Holder.   Obama comes across mean and dictatorial. Unlike Bush, I don’t think he could shed a tear unless it was over his own successful squashing of what is | Read More »

    Our new leadership, and I for one am excited

    I had the good fortune of meeting Governer Jindal when he was the Lt. Governor of Louisiana. I also met him once as congressman. I’m sure he doesn’t remember me, but I remember him as someone, that upon hearing him speak, reminded me of what our party is all about. Have a listen here. I’m really looking forward to 2012. Also, this is also worth | Read More »

    First Post

    Here is a letter I submitted to the local newspaper. It appeared in yesterdays paper. Seemed a fitting start. Republicans of the greater York area take heart. Conservatism did not lose this election…..the current Republican Party did. Starting Nov. 5th the rebuilding of the Republican Party begins. We must once again fill our ranks with true (emphasis on true) conservatives. And for the 20% of | Read More »

    BHAG’s for the 2012 GOP Contenders

    “BHAG’s”…or, “Big, Hairy, Audacious Goals” each of the early 2012 GOP Presidential prospects must do to significantly advance their cause: 1) Mike Huckabee: Win over the Club for Growth. 2) Sarah Palin: Somehow, through self-appointment or the 2010 election, become one of Alaska’s senators providing her with more exposure and involvement in national and international political issues. 3) Mitt Romney: Donate 80% of his fortune | Read More »

Remember, according to the polls, there are at least 48 million of us out there. Now what is the best way to create this chaos? Firstly, today is the day | Read More »

    McCain’s Unconventional Pick

    Despite quite a bit of speculation that she would be a good pick beforehand, Democrats claimed that McCain picked Palin at the last minute as an act of desperation, even some on the right characterize it as a Hail Mary pass. As I argued before his pick, McCain was actually going to win whoever he chose and that he should make an unconventional pick to | Read More »
