President Obama’s Biggest Mistake
The Silvered, Fork-tongued One skates through electoral mayhem with the grace of Johnny Weir, but this time, he falls and fails badly. It will come back to haunt him. I refer to President Obama siding with the public sector unions across the country while the Governors, both Republican and Democrat, try to balance state budgets and ask the unions to make less-aggressive concessions than private | Read More »
WEAC Publishes Home Addresses of Wisconsin Legislators
The Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC) has stepped up their protest efforts in Madison, WI in an attempt to stop Governor Scott Walker’s efforts to close his state’s projected $3.6 Billion budget shortfall over the next two years. Gov Walker has proposed that public employee unions pay a larger portion of their health benefits & pension plans as well as limiting their collective bargaining rights | Read More »
Democrats start clearing out OfA deadwood.
Well, that didn’t take long. I mean, when I wrote this post indicating that Tim Kaine’s retention as DNC chair meant that the Democratic leadership had decided to concentrate solely on the President’s re-election*, I did not expect that I would receive some sort of confirmation of this within minutes. But, thanks to Doug Heye, I see this report that the DNC is laying off… | Read More »
Shocker: IL-08 Pledge-hater also OfA drone.
A follow-up to yesterday’s post on the Pledge scandal in IL-08: it turns out that the League of Women Voters moderator (one Kathy Tate-Bradish) just happened to be a hardcore OfA member and Obama supporter. Everybody shocked, raise your hands… no, me neither. Admit it: you didn’t even think that she was anything except a typical Democratic elitist, right? And, oddly enough, you were clearly | Read More »
Unorganized for America
That was then: Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, | Read More »
NBC/MSNBC & YouTube teamed with progressive orgs with financial ties to ACORN in 2008
Well folks, looks like I could be “peeling off” a few more here. Not only do conservatives have to contend with Obama’s OFA (Organizing for America), progressive orgs like MoveOn, SEIU, et al in massive Get Out the Vote (GOTV) efforts but now I’ve discovered to my chagrin that NBC, MSNBC and YouTube are in the mix. How did I get here? I’m not going | Read More »

PotUS November strategy: fighting where they REALLY ain’t.
This article in the New York Times on the awkward disconnect between the President of the United States and the political party that he’s presumably in charge of is actually… not too bad, really. This, for example, is pretty clear-headed: In 2006 and 2008, Democrats did something that had not been done in American politics since the Great Depression, which is to string together two | Read More »
