Portman Introduces Kick-the-Can-Down-the-Road-Until-January Act
If you had any doubt that our national leaders are more concerned about preserving their jobs than with preserving our Republic, Sen. Rob Portman’s (R-OH) End Government Shutdowns Act should quickly dispel those doubts. Portman, joined by Senators Tester (D-MT), Barrasso (R-WY), Boozman (R-AR), Coats (R-IN), Cornyn (R-TX), Enzi (R-WY), Hoeven (R-ND), Lee (R-UT) and McCain (R-AZ) introduced a bill today that will attempt to insulate | Read More »

Pruning the Republican Establishment
Let’s face it, our 50 years of laxness was unable to get us a true conservative nominee for the White House in 2012. We woke up 5 or 6 years ago, but were asleep for generations. One of my favorite quotes goes something like this: “It took a long time to get this way; it ain’t gonna change overnight.” And I’ve also learned that everything of value is expensive–in time, in effort, in blood, sweat and tears.

So we have a nominee that is not Reaganesque. Let’s surround him with true conservatives. We need one as a VP running mate and we need to stack the Congress with genuine conservatives. Radical liberals must be voted out and help RINOS follow suit. If Romney is surrounded by true conservatives, I’m not stupid enough to believe he’ll become one, but my contention is that were this the case, Romney will be forced to move to the right. Even Clinton shifted to the center.
Why the ‘Anybody-but-Mitt’ attitude is going to bring us….Mitt
I am firmly in the camp of ‘Anybody but Mitt’. However, my preferred candidate is not in the race so I am left squarely undecided. I am researching and listening to everyone in the field, yes everyone. I haven’t made up my mind yet, and won’t until the primary gets to Georgia. My concern is that we are all so apoplectic about NOT choosing Mitt | Read More »

Huntsman vs. Perry on Global Warming: Recipe for Epic Huntsman/Gore Disaster
There’s an old adage that liberals spotlight what they fear the most by striking back as hard as they can at that particular fear. Case in point in the last several days is what GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry said about scientists who are skeptical of human activity causing global warming. Simply put, he sides with the growing numbers of such skeptics. Truth is, liberals | Read More »

The Wimpy-est Generation
“I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.” – Wimpy; The Democratic Party; Us “The Greatest Generation” is a term coined by Tom Brokaw in his book by the same name. He details the sacrifice and determination the World War II generation endured to help free the world from dictatorial oppression. While there are certainly weaknesses in his argument, that generation understood giving, sharing, | Read More »
There was a strategy the Conservatives could’ve used in ’08 that would’ve led to victory which is a must-know for 2012.
No, it does not involve recreating history such as pretending that a different candidate other than McCain would’ve won the primary, or that the country’s economic situation wasn’t heading towards collapse. Nor is it necessary to alter the fact that his campaign came after eight years of an unpopular president, George W. Bush, which created an entire new class of Republican haters. Obama remains | Read More »
Obama Shellacks Another Senator
First, there was Byron Dorgan of North Dakota. Like every other Democrat in the Senate, he rubber stamped the Obama agenda, loading future generations with unnecessary debt. Then 2010 came along….and he saw the handwriting on the wall. After multiple terms as a Senator, why waste the money and be humiliated? Instead, bow out and begin to enjoy a fabulous retirement, courtesy the taxpayers (after | Read More »

Barack Obama – Post Partisan? Purgamentum Init, Exit Purgamentum.
Due to other work commitments we have been unable to produce an article today. The article that follows was written by Skip on December 24, 2009. It includes a very accurate prediction! The Latin word for truth is veritas. It’s something with which Mr Post Partisan has very little intercourse with. There was the truth and it knew him not. A lot of people who | Read More »

Bush v. Palin; Manufactured Fictional Turmoil
I knew the leftwing mainstream media would come out of this election cycle with their knives drawn, but I guess I was naive enough to believe they’d try to report with at least a modicum of truth trapped deeply within the web of their lies. The New York Daily Worker News decided that it would play fast and loose with the truth in a bizarro | Read More »
John McCain as Senate Majority Leader?
As much as it would pain me, it looks like the GOP’s best possibility on Tuesday would give them 50 seats in the Senate, with the dems having 48 seats, plus 2 independents that caucus with them. So… if the GOP keeps their current power structure, they are assured of remaining in the minority with a 50-50 vote and Biden being the tiebreaker. HOWEVER, if | Read More »
McCain: Not Now, Not for the Future
It is amazing that Arizona, so embroiled in a fight against the U.S. Government over the status of immigration and their borders, could even be contemplating supporting a non-starter like John McCain. As the Republican candidate for the last Presidential election, John had shown his true colors. He is a non-starter. Not once did he campaign against the Democratic candidate. He never once put issues | Read More »
John McCain Should Be President. He Has Some Explaining To Do.
Today I again wish Barack Obama had lost the election of 2008. Again, I wish that John McCain were the president. Ironically, today at least, this has nothing to do with any particular disagreement I have with how President Obama is handling his duties. Today, at least, it has nothing to do with the fact that I admired the courage and grace shown by Sarah | Read More »
Is Anyone Awake in Arizona?
Okay, how many of y’all caught John McCain on Sean Hannity’s show this evening? Anyone? Anyone? The words of the segment were “Terrible”, “Awful”, to everything that Sean asked John. Do you think the leaking and release of the 90,000+ military secrets should be labeled treason?, asked Sean. All McCain was missing as he intoned “Terrible….Awful” was the hand-wringing that went with his facial expression | Read More »
Why is John McCain Spending so Much Campaign Cash?
For some reason, many here at Red State and elsewhere seem to feel that JD Hayworth’s challenge to John McCain is a lost cause, and are determined to jump on McCain’s bandwagon while simultaneously disregarding his penchant for turning on the very folks who support him. Their reasoning leaves me significantly puzzeled, but they are welcome to their opinions. I am curious about other considerations than | Read More »
