What McCain Is Being Asked To Do Now

    Working bipartisan is something that was demanded of people this election. People claimed McCain, being a clone of Bush, couldn’t do it.


    Third Parties in Swing States Make a Difference, So Don’t Do It!

    I understand why some folks voted Libertarian. I was confronted this year with a US House race (FL-15) where a qualified independent candidate was running. I feared that the Democrat Dr. Blythe, a Planned Parenthood supporter, could win without my vote for the GOP Posey (who won). Consider these cases from this 2008 election yesterday: If 90% of those 29,000 who voted for Barr (L) | Read More »

    Why McCain Lost

    p class=”MsoNormal” style=”0in 0in 0pt;”>John McCain ran an honorable campaign, but still came up short. Any Republican would have trouble in this environment, with the state of the economy, the President’s approval rating, the inter-party battle for the nomination, and the lack of major domestic achievements in President Bush’s second term all were millstones around McCain’s neck. Were this 2000 or 2004, Senator McCain arguably | Read More »


    The End of the Bell Curve Theory of Politics

    Back when I was a student of political science, we spent a lot of time discussing the bell curve theory of American politics. The idea was simple. Americans are supposedly arrayed along an ideological spectrum. The vast majority of voters are in the center, while small numbers lurk out at the edges. So, the theory goes, the winning party will be the one that finds | Read More »

    Thank you, John S. McCain.

    Though I would have preferred a more conservative candidate, I have nothing but admiration now for John S. McCain. I have been following politics since 1960, and rarely if ever have I seen a man put more energy into his campaign – even campaigning until the polls closed on election day. I have quibbles with the campaign of course, but in summary I think we | Read More »

    The Universe Shares Our Pain

    We are not alone in our sadness.

    Reflections on the Election

    The election is over, and the American people have spoken; the results are clear. As expected, Obama is the President-Elect by a fairly significant margin. Now that we have completed this election cycle, it is time to reflect. As many of you have done, I have come to several conclusions about the election and its result. We need to consider where we go from here, | Read More »

    We have one president at a time

    Originally published by Mike “gamecock” DeVine as Charlotte Law and Civil Rights Examiner for Examiner.com The American people have chosen a new Chief Magistrate. Congratulations to President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama. All Americans of faith should pray for him and his family despite any political differences. He defeated a true American hero and worthy opponent in John McCain. My candidate lost, but We the People have | Read More »

    With change comes opportunity

    The electorate voted for change yesterday. Now we will see what kind of change they will get. We will also see that with change comes opportunity. First, a mea culpa…

    MI Morning Update 11-5-2008

    726 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY November 5, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: MICHIGAN REPUBLICANS made a valiant effort to fend off a national ‘anti-Republican’ tsunami. I can’t say strongly enough how proud I am of the individual efforts by so many of our Republican grass-root supporters. As I traveled the state this last week on our ‘Fight to the Finish Tour,’ there was story after story of | Read More »

    What Indiana???

    Another election over and another tough year for Republicans. Indiana one of the most reliable Republican states in the past has just given its 11 electoral votes to Obama, but why and how? I have been coming to this site now for years and after every election I see the exact same entries, but no one seems to understand. Indiana itself is not a Republican | Read More »

    The Great “Republican Moderate” Experiment Is Over

    Democrats, read it and rejoice. Americans, who love our Constitution and freedoms–disaster. George Bush was criticized for instituting a police state by wire tapping in foreign nations and for a prison in Cuba. Obama now proclaims that he will create a brown-shirt style police force right here on American soil–but no one cares. Shall we expect the Black Panthers to even change their uniforms? The | Read More »

    Obama Now or Obama Later

    Alas the election is over and Barack Obama should be congratulated as the 44th POTUS. Though it looks pretty glum around camp GOP there are some positive things to consider in McCain’s defeat. Faced with massive Democratic majorities in Congress, McCain would have had to track to the center just to get anything done. Out of a sense of obligation to their president, the Republicans | Read More »

    If Republicans Want to Keep Losing Elections…

    Keep this centrist-moderate thing that totally alienates the base going Continue to Nominate Uninspiring Elderly Bob Dole Clones Continue to Run Away from Critical Social Issues that Resonate with Working Class Americans Like Abortion, Gay Marriage, and Gun Control. Keep Treating the Liberal Media like they don’t work for the DNC Continue to Empower and Laud RINO politicians Never Actually RUN on a Winning Platform | Read More »
