Now Senator Bennet of Colorado is sending out emails to his supporters with the subject line “Buckeye for a day.” In the email, Bennet writes: If special | Read More »

On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Curtis Dubay to discuss the unfair and inaccurate analysis of Mitt Romney’s tax plan by the left-wing Tax Policy Center, what a tax plan in a Romney administration may actually look like, and whether or not we even need a federal income tax.

If The Election Were Held Today, Mitt Romney Would Win
Just under a month ago, I noted to much criticism that were the election held that day Mitt Romney would lose. The right did not like it, but it was the simple truth. At the time, Romney was flailing about badly without a coherent message. I wrote that he could turn it around, but at that time he had not. Well, who knew Mitt Romney’s | Read More »
RedState Roundtable: The First Debate
Longtime RedStaters might remember the old Roundtables we used to do (although in fairness, that was long before my time on the Front Page). For a while now, we’ve been trying to restart them. This election gives us a perfect opportunity, so we decided to do a Roundtable on the first debate and where we go from here. This covers our discussions before, during, and | Read More »
VMI speech, 10/08/2012: Mitt Romney will promise to arm Syrian rebels, if elected.
From the text of his prepared remarks: In Syria, I will work with our partners to identify and organize those members of the opposition who share our values and ensure they obtain the arms they need to defeat Assad’s tanks, helicopters, and fighter jets. Iran is sending arms to Assad because they know his downfall would be a strategic defeat for them. We should be | Read More »
‘Shell-shocked’ team Obama whines and plays a blame game over debate loss
‘Shell-shocked’ team Obama whines and plays a blame game over debate loss Shell-shocked by Governor Romney’s terrific debate performance, especially juxtaposed to President Obama’s lackadaisical performance in front of a television audience of about 67.5 million, team Obama is flailing around whining and pointing fingers of blame at each other. Failing to convince any fair-minded person that Obama lost the debate because, as the Obama | Read More »
Fact Checking CNN’s Fact Checkers
What is the value of fact checking if the fact-checkers don’t have a clue about the facts they’re checking? CNN’s fact checkers accuse Mitt Romney of playing fast and loose with the data. In reality, he displayed a masterful executive-level command of the issues. It’s President Obama they should worry about.

SECRET ROMNEY CHEAT SHEET REVEALED! MUST CREDIT REDSTATE!
I will admit, when I first saw this superficially insipidly stupid report ‘accusing’ Mitt Romney of being able to fit everything he needed to gut Barack Obama like a fish in Wednesday’s debate on a single sheet of paper (a so-called “cheat sheet”), my first thought was Wow. That’s incredibly insulting… to Barack Obama; surely you’d need at least an eight-page chapbook. But, once I | Read More »
Obama’s Tax Deduction Lie
Obama thinks the American people are stupid. Throughout the debate, Obama regurgitated his talking points about a balanced solution to the debt crisis. In the process he insulted the intelligence of every voter by intimating that the budget can be balanced by eliminating a few tax credits. No, he didn’t commit to tackling the tens of trillions in unfunded liabilities to Medicare and Social Security. | Read More »

More Than 67 Million People Watched Last Night’s Debate
How important was last night’s Romney-Obama debate, which nearly everyone agrees was a lopsided win for Romney? Time will tell. But one thing we can know for sure is that it was, by far, the most-watched event of the 2012 campaign. The importance of debates is itself endlessly debated, and you can’t really tell the role of the debates in a race except with hindsight. | Read More »

We won the debate; now, let’s move on to the next thing.
So, I had the opportunity to talk with Senator Marco Rubio last night, and ask him a question. I’ll spare you the verbal tics and whatnot: what I asked Rubio, effectively, was “What advice did the Romney campaign take heed off, out of all of New Media’s unsolicited offerings along those lines?” This is how Rubio responded: Rubio 10/03/2012 The funny part was: at the | Read More »
Beating an Empty Chair
We’ve all been critical of Mitt Romney from the beginning of the primary and throughout the general election for his lack of core principles, pale-pastel ideas, flaccid attacks on Obama, and lack of specifics. I have not shied away from pointing out that the Romney convention along with his acceptance speech was a disaster. So what about his debate performance? To paraphrase Michele Obama, this | Read More »

There was a surreal moment after the debate last night. On CNN, the polling went overwhelmingly for Mitt Romney among debate watchers. Basically two-thirds of the American public who watched the debate claimed Romney won. A majority claimed Romney was with them on taxes, the economy, healthcare, their views of government, etc. He dominated. A CBS poll of undecided voters who watched the debate mirrored | Read More »
