Conyers and the Rove Subpoena; What, Again?!?
Congressman John Conyers, Democrat of Michigan. With the start of every session of Congress for the last God knows how many sessions, he puts in a bill to fund a study to investigate the benefits of reparations for African-Americans whose ancestors were slaves. It’s never gone anywhere; but there’s Conyers filing it session after session after session (it’s there again for the 111th Congress). Along | Read More »
John Conyers: The Wannabe Congressional Bully
How much more bad news can you absorb? Every week another corporation is laying off or going under. Another bank is tanking or buying private jets and remodeling executive bathrooms with TARP money. Congress approves a tax cheat to be in charge of our money and our income tax filings. The same Congress can’t seem to track where any of our money has gone. Every | Read More »
And Here I Thought George W. Bush Was Retarded. At Least That’s What MSNBC Would Have Us Believe
Maybe Karl Rove just took time out of his busy schedule to pen a lie about the President. Yes, that must be it. It couldn’t be the truth. It all started on New Year’s Eve in 2005. President Bush asked what my New Year’s resolutions were. I told him that as a regular reader who’d gotten out of the habit, my goal was to read | Read More »
Karl Rove tells them: This is continuity, not change.
Perhaps we did not purchase the bill of goods, but 68,588,471 American voters, most still alive and voting only once, were sold the campaign schtick – hopeCHANGEhope – and now they’re learning about it from Karl Rove. On their home turf, NBC’s Today program, Karl Rove reviews their messiah’s national security & foreign policy team and tells them this: The team represents, to a substantial | Read More »
Enter Rove, Stage Right
Let me be clear, I have no idea how you become Chair of the Republican National Committee. I don’t know if you write a letter or let certain people behind the scenes know you could be tempted or send up smoke signals. But it seems logical to me that one thing you might do is write a detailed proposal of how the party can come | Read More »
Karl Rove on Immigration and Hispanics
Jennifer Rubin writes of Rove in her Flotsam and Jetsom blog feature: Karl Rove has plenty of savvy advice for Republicans including this (which won’t be greeted warmly in some conservative corners): “Republicans must find a way to support secure borders, a guest-worker program and comprehensive immigration reform that strengthens citizenship, grows our economy and keeps America a welcoming nation. An anti-Hispanic attitude is suicidal. | Read More »
MI Morning Update 10-1-08
34 Days until Election Day October 1, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: GARY PETERS NEW ADS…In his new TV ad, Gary Peters is trying to introduce himself to Oakland County’s families as someone he’s really not. His ad cloaks him in a mantle of fiscal responsibility, but his real record shows a love affair with job-killing tax hikes. At a time when Michigan voters are worried | Read More »
MI Morning Update
35 Days until Election Day September 30, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: COMPROMISE…FINANCIAL BAILOUT/WORK OUT FAILS…House Republicans in particular, worked to get a package that not only helped provide liquidity on Wall Street, but reflected the concerns of Main Street and taxpayers. Republicans are pushing for suspension of "mark to market" accounting. Democrats played politics with this bill. Speaker Pelosi tried to play both sides. This is | Read More »
McCain/Palin Troops beware
Crossposted at OpinionTimes.com The recently converted McCain supporters (once disaffected members of the Republican base) should be excited about the current McCain bump. But it will be all for naught if the McCain campaign doesn’t focus that energy on a strong effort to get like-minded voters to the polls. Just kiss it all goodbye without a grassroots effort which eclipses 2004. And Karl Rove (love | Read More »
Karl Rove’s Electoral Map (09/14/08): McCain Gets Florida and The Lead. Is New York Next?
Rove talked about this chart on Fox News Sunday (transcript at the link) yesterday, but the chart was not put online until today. John McCain now leads in the Electoral College for the first time since early June, with 227 electoral votes to Barack Obama’s 226 votes and 85 votes as a toss-up. Florida (27 EV) switched from toss-up to McCain to give the Republican | Read More »
Listen to the Architect: McCain Should Go with Romney
Once again, I find myself at odds with the Directors. I like Cantor and I personally think he’d be great as a VP, but I don’t know if he’s got enough of the resources or name-recognition that people are looking for. Same for Pawlenty. Romney, though a staunch rival of McCain in the primaries, was rather gracious in his CPAC concession, which is something McCain | Read More »
Rove Wants McCain to Pick Lieberman
What’s that, you say? You heard the opposite? Well, then you don’t know Karl Rove. “Rove called Lieberman,” recounted a second source. “Lieberman told him he would not make that call.” … “Rove is pushing Romney so aggressively some folks are beginning to wonder what’s going on,” grumbled one veteran Republican strategist. Rove is very astute about the way his public persona is perceived. So | Read More »
Barack Jennings Obama
A young, inexperienced orator captures the Democratic presidential nomination and squares off against the war hero and senior statesman nominated by the Republicans. Speaking as if from a pulpit, in a style learned from fiery preachers, the magnetic newcomer had the crowds swooning. I’m referring, of course, to the presidential election of 1896. That year, the Democratic Party was sharply divided between an establishment faction | Read More »
