The debates and what Mitt Romney must do … enough already!
Whether one reads The Wall Street Journal, Politico, The National Review, the local newspaper, or watches the MSM or cable news, “what Mitt Romney must do” Wednesday night has itself been debated ad nauseum. Enough already! I’ve been on record that I don’t think Mitt Romney has run a barnstormer of a campaign, and emotion doesn’t appear to be his strong suit thus far, but | Read More »
The Debates: The Obama Campaign Has Already Been Given The Questions … And Other Things Romney Should Keep In Mind
1. The Debate Moderators are going to do all they feasibly can to help President Obama. The Debate on Wednesday October 3rd is not going to be Mitt Romney versus Barack Obama, but really Mitt Romney versus Barack Obama and Jim Lehrer. The Vice-Presidential debate between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden on October 11th is going to be Paul Ryan versus Joe Biden and Martha | Read More »
Tech at Night: Potentially promising FCC moves on Spectrum and the Spectrum Screen
Top story: the FCC is moving forward with spectrum auctions, providing incentives for television stations to auction off their spectrum for wireless Internet use. We could see the auctions completed by the end of 2014.
Everyone admits there’s a spectrum crunch, and on the right and left of the FCC they say it’s a difficult question of how to transfer spectrum to alleviate it. Greg Walden is right though that this is good “if implemented well.” Bruce Mehlman of iia calls it “a terrific start” and that’s also true.

If Romney wins in Nov, it will be in spite of himself and his campaign
The homestretch of the campaign season has now been reduced to waiting for the real Mitt to show up, and more to point, if the real Mitt shows up. The number of wasted opportunities for Romney to have made strong statements about the Middle East debacle, the recent economic numbers, and frame each in the context of an overall picture, will haunt his campaign long | Read More »
The Marriage Question, Romney’s Polling, and Bibi’s Red Sharpie
You know that 50% of marriages in the United States end in divorce right? Every time gay marriage comes up, that data point comes up. Fifty percent of married couples get divorced. If heterosexual couples value marriage so little, why should they stand in the way of gay couples who really will value it as a civil right?You know that evangelical Christians in the United | Read More »
Tech at …. Night? : Racist spectrum? ; How to undo the Obama damage
Oops. Went to bed before putting up Tech at Night last night. Sorry about that! Special morning edition instead!
Even as House extremists are effectively calling it racist to free up spectrum in America, the IIA has it right that we need the FCC to be serious about this.
So here’s an action point for anyone interested: tell Mitt Romney that he needs to appoint strong, reformist regulators not just to stop the bleeding in all regulatory agencies, but actually to roll back the disastrous Obama years. Repeal and replace. It’s not just for Obamacare anymore.

Doom, Gloom, and Polls
Both sides in Campaign 2012 have a very unhealthy fixation on daily tracking polls. The media is using the polls as an excuse to not cover the growing disaster in Libya and instead focus on Romney. The right is using the polls as a tool to reinforce their disgust with the media. It is getting so bad, some are even now accusing RealClearPolitics of gaming | Read More »
Help Save the Country: GET OUT THE VOTE!
Back in May when it became apparent that our GOP nominee for President was going to be Governor Mitt Romney, I wrote this diary What Are You Doing the Summer of 2012? (I’ll be trying to save the country.) explaining how I had come around to support Mitt and why. Not much has changed for me since then except my activism has increased, and I’m | Read More »
Romney Winning 301 Electoral Votes Projected By UnSkewed Polling Data – Photo Caption Contest
Am I dreaming? Maybe or maybe not, but either way this Electoral College map from Examiner.com is based largely on projected results from UnSkewed Polls.com and some other astute analysis. Upon seeing this map, I immediately knew it was time for another world famous RedState Photo Caption Contest. This is because since this past Sunday when Charlie Martin wrote about UnSkewed Polls.com on PJ | Read More »
Before the Rooster Crows
Here is the most profound insight of the week I can give you — in American politics, if a Republican candidate loses, the media blames it on the candidate being too conservative. If a Republican candidate wins, the media credits the candidate drifting toward the center. The only sure fire loser in American politics is the conservative movement, which is remarkable given the amazing success | Read More »
A Missed Opportunity on Housing Policy
There’s nothing that exemplifies the deleterious effects of government intervention into the private sector than the housing market. Bill Clinton’s National Homeownership Strategy did to the housing sector what Obamacare will do for the healthcare sector. His administration created entire offices and programs dedicated to forcing banks to underwrite risky mortgages under the dubious goal of universal home ownership. Concurrently, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac | Read More »

Riding the Romney roller coaster
Earlier last week, I wrote a column, “Tell us what you really think, Mitt, and you’ll have your 10-pt lead in the polls.” Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be happening, at least not to any great extent, yet. With 45 days to November 6, it is deeply troubling. This morning on Fox News Sunday, Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI), called upon Romney to “show | Read More »
Obama Embraces Keeping Blacks Stuck on the Democrat Plantation
Hate, fear and smear!! “Shame on you Barack Obama!!” – Feb 23, 2008 This is the legacy of the Democrat party and one which President Obama embraces and actually appears to relish. He is quite familiar with the hate, fear and smear art form practiced by his fellow democratic leaders. He uses it with adept frequency. The president flies into crucial swing states like Ohio, | Read More »
