Common Core: a PRAGMATIC observation for politicians.
The more astute ones will only need this to get my point… Stop #commoncore #refusethetest #edreform pic.twitter.com/OOlsRil9QC — Heather Poland (@TeachrPerspctve) February 13, 2014 …but let’s walk it through anyway.
What Happend to the Conservative Movement?
What Happened to the Conservative Movement? I’m sitting back today disillusioned. It’s amazing to me where the GOP and the Conservative movement are today. Recently the GOP was on the verge of a generational shift, the Republican party held both chambers of Congress, and the White house, in a now self-defining ‘center right’ nation. Only we, the conservative movement, didn’t hold our elected leaders | Read More »
DISCLOSE: Does It Mean Getting Naked?
The DISCLOSE Act is an excellent example of Democrat “transparency”, and is pure, naked political aggression being waged against all Americans. There used to be laws that protected political speech from government’s selective censorship, laws that both the people & the government respected. The Supreme Court’s recent decision in “Citizens United” nullified as unconstitutional Campaign Finance Law restricting free political speech. The DISCLOSE Act was | Read More »

The Boston Tea Party Was One Great Step In The Birth Of Our Nation
It’s Time To Invest In The Next Great Step In Regaining Our Nation’s Bright Future It has been marvelous to watch the Tea Party Movement that’s grown up across the U.S. this year. For me, it’s been a bit like being able to step into the pages of a U.S. History Book. Probably like most of you, I first heard the stories of the | Read More »
The Opposition Party ALWAYS Wants The Other Party To Fail
In 2001, E. J. Dionne had the following to say to Democrats: The lesson to Democrats? They need to combine greater boldness (on, for example, work-and-family issues, political and voting-rights reform, the global economy, child poverty and health care) with a rhetoric that emphasizes practical and achievable goals. Simply waiting for Bush to fail would not only be uninspiring politics. It would also amount to a concession by | Read More »
[BREAKING] Boehner to House GOP: Vote against the stimulus.
Or, as Heritage put it, “The Pelosi-Reid-Obama Debt Plan”. Anyway, Politico reports: President Barack Obama is coming to the Capitol this afternoon to curry favor with congressional Republicans. But it appears GOP leaders have already made up their minds to oppose his $825 billion stimulus plan. House Republican Leader John A. Boehner and his No. 2, Whip Eric Cantor, told their rank-and-file members Tuesday morning | Read More »
GOP needs to become “Lyonized”
“Obama is too measured and polite to say so, so I’ll say it for him,” Lynne K. Varner, a columnist for the Seattle Times, recently wrote. “Come mid-January, Republicans and Democrats ought to follow the president’s lead or simply get out of his way.” Another commentator, Joy Behar, has called Barack Obama’s critics “unpatriotic.”
If we just copied the left…
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I actually understand better now how Michelle Obama felt with the whole “for the first time in my life, I’m really proud of my country” moment. I remember the week after Election Day 2004, and just feeling so incredibly proud of the country, and particularly Ohio, for re-electing President Bush. I knew I could count on the Buckeye | Read More »
A Note to the GOP Senators- Some Backbone Please
It CAN be done. Just ask Bob! It looks as if the new Congress will have 44 or 45 Republican senators. I understand the temptation they might have to cry in their beer over the election results. But the people have spoken, and it’s time to move on. The GOP Senate minority has the strength it needs to mount an effective opposition. If they need | Read More »
Obama Now or Obama Later
Alas the election is over and Barack Obama should be congratulated as the 44th POTUS. Though it looks pretty glum around camp GOP there are some positive things to consider in McCain’s defeat. Faced with massive Democratic majorities in Congress, McCain would have had to track to the center just to get anything done. Out of a sense of obligation to their president, the Republicans | Read More »
