Romney, peace thru strength and the death of neo-occupationalism
Republican nominee would restore a foreign policy informed by a commitment to American exceptionalism, albeit one that would not entail interventions abroad absent vital American interests nor any long-term occupations of foreign lands. It wasn’t necessary for Mitt Romney to play Dostoevsky’s Grand Inquisitor to Barack Obama as Shakespeare’s King Lear in the last presidential election debate, especially with Bob Scheiffer as an older Candy Crowley on | Read More »
This Race is Over
We are less than a week from the election.At this point, I just want it over. I want my life back. I’m worn out. I am struggling to still care now that I have cast my absentee ballot.I think most Americans feel that way. The people of Ohio and Florida are begging for a return to TV ads for male enhancement drugs and self-lubricating catheters. | Read More »
A Pre-Election Post-Mortem
With each passing day, it appears that Barack Obama will be rendered a one-term President. His agenda, such that one exists, may not be the death of liberalism in this country, but it certainly will be death of his brand of liberalism which skirts the boundary with European-style socialism. After the concession speech and rally before a tired and losing battle-weary crowd, the Obama team | Read More »
Committed: Romney Sacrificed $2 Billion in His Run for the Presidency
Nathan Vardi’s Forbes magazine article, “Mitt Romney: The Most Expensive Political Career in American History” makes the observation that, “lots of people pay a high price for getting into politics, but no one has likely given up more, at least financially, than Mitt Romney.” Forbes has estimated that Romney would be worth approximately $2 billion had he remained at Bain Capital instead of running for | Read More »
One of the most portentous comments ever made by a candidate concerning his own campaign prospects was Romney’s off-the-record remark about Obama having an automatic 47% floor of support. The media attack dogs lambasted him for his “out of touch” sentiments. The reality is that Romney hit the nail on the head months before the pollsters would coalesce around that number. Let’s confront an inconvenient | Read More »
Dispatch from the Ohio Front
Just over a week ago, I along with fifty other Tennesseans boarded a charter bus and began a five hour trek to the front lines of the 2012 fight for the Presidency. We arrived in southwestern Ohio at roughly 10 PM EST that Friday night. Upon our arrival to our hotel, we received our room assignments and initial instructions. Then we bedded down for the | Read More »

Mitt Romney as Alexander the Great!
Sadly, this summer Andy Griffith died. Growing up in the 1970’s, watching the Andy Griffith show was simply part of our day. Between episodes of Howdy Doody, The Brady Bunch and Gilligan’s Island, the Andy Griffith Show was just another show where life lessons played out on TV. Together these shows were “Americana” incarnate, where stories about honesty, hard work and community were on display | Read More »
Comparing the instincts of Mitt Romney to those of Barack Obama.
This is what Romney-Ryan thinks is important enough to mention in the last two weeks of the campaign. It is the latest email that I have received from the campaign. Stay safe, give to the Red Cross, and GET THOSE ROMNEY-RYAN SIGNS INSIDE! High winds will turn them into deathtraps! This is what Obama for America thinks is important enough to mention in the last | Read More »
WaPo poll: Republicans ready to elect Mitt Romney!
There are two things that I would like you to understand about this graphic from the latest WaPo/ABC tracking poll (the Sunday 49/48 Romney/Obama, if I understand it correctly): For those who can’t see the picture, the WaPo has been asking Republicans why they were going to vote for Romney. In July 2012 only 36% of respondents said that they were voting for Romney, while | Read More »
Tech at Night: Ajit Pai comes to RedState on IP Transformation, FCC Reform Needed, Copyright Reform Needed Too?
Regulation must keep up with the needs of modernization. That’s a point new FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai came to RedState to make, particularly with respect to the Internet transformation going on in telecommunications. As the world “goes IP,” and puts everything on the Internet, regulators must adapt. Make sure to read it. Ajit Pai would have a particularly important role as a reformist regulator should Mitt Romney win.
Regulation today just doesn’t make much sense sometimes, a point Broadband for America makes. The point about ‘edge’ vs ‘core’ of the Internet is important. The firm that sits between you and Google is as important to you as Google. They’re all pieces of the puzzle.

A Wide Electoral/Popular Vote Split Won’t Happen
There is an emerging narrative percolating throughout the political world; the prospect that Romney could win the popular vote but lose the Electoral College. The theory is predicated on the seemingly contradictory data between state and national polls. National polls seem to show Romney with a consistent 2-4% lead, while state polls show the candidates tied or Obama slightly ahead in Ohio, Iowa, and Wisconsin. | Read More »
Swingometer: Gallup Party ID figures predict solid Romney win
We always talk about the independent, swing vote in elections because those tend to be the persuadables. But party ID numbers matter as well, because those partisan voters tend to split better than 90/10 for their party.
It is for that reason that Gallup’s new partisan ID split, one that mimics what Rasmussen has been saying all along, predicts nothing less than doom for the Democrats, and a solid, national win for Mitt Romney this year.

The MSM Hit Job on Richard Mourdock and Useful Idiots in the Republican Party
Republican Senatorial Candidate Richard Mourdock made national news in a debate on October 23, 2012. In response to an abortion question asked of all the candidates, Mourdock made the following statement: “I too certainly stand for life. I know there are some who disagree and I respect their point of view but I believe that life begins at conception. The only exception I have for, | Read More »

Lila Rose, of the Live Action Advocate, has released a video exposing Planned Parenthood’s negligence in the death of Tonya Reaves, who bled to death in a botched abortion at one of their clinics. Additionally, the video contains recorded phone conversations with Planned Parenthood employees lying to would-be visitors about the health risks involved with an abortion procedure at clinics that have had medical emergencies | Read More »
