The Toomey-Manchin Compromise Would Not Stop Another Newtown or Columbine
Pat Toomey and Joe Manchin are going to release their compromise at 11:00 a.m. Arlen Specter would be so proud of Pat Toomey giving the Republicans cover to go left. Toomey and Manchin will spend some time making sure everyone knows what their proposal will not do. For example, they are going to be pushing hard that the proposal won’t ban any guns, won’t take | Read More »
‘Fracknation’ Seeks the Fracking Truth
If you’re a “low-information voter” whose opinions are shaped solely by the mainstream press, you’ll find the Fracknation story shocking indeed!

GOP fights for a fair election in Pennsylvania
As we reported earlier this morning, Obama supporters muscled Republican Election Inspectors in Philadelphia, But the GOP fought and won this initial battle to keep the election fair.
In a written statement, Pennsylvania Republican Party Chairman Rob Gleason announced that the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas issued an order to seat Republican Minority Inspectors in Philadelphia Polling places:
“This was a shameless attempt from the Obama campaign to suppress our legally appointed Republican poll watchers in Philadelphia and they got caught.”

More Dem playbook in action, stealing Pennsylvania
As we reported here, here and here, the Democrats have dusted off their 2004 playbook and are trying to steal the election.
It is happening in Philadelphia now.
The Philadelphia GOP reports that court appointed Minority (read Republican) Inspectors are being thrown out of polling locations in several Wards.

More Dem playbook in action, shredding GOP registrations
Sunday we warned that the Democrats would dust off their 2004 Election Playbook and engage in all kinds of shenanigans in an all out effort to do whatever it takes to ensure President Obama is reelected.
No sooner had the warning been published, than did the Des Moines Register and ABC News report about absentee ballot irregularities in Iowa.
Somehow a Democrat campaign worker gave his 75-year-old mother the impression that it was OK for her to sign his name on an absentee ballot request form when he wasn’t home. In addition, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation was looking into unauthorized absentee ballot paperwork in which someone allegedly requested paperwork for an absentee ballot without the voter’s consent or knowledge:
“The DCI has approached paid Democratic Party staff to ask questions about allegations of unauthorized requests for absentee ballots in Floyd County, a party official confirmed. Norm Sterzenbach, the party’s executive director, said a DCI agent spoke briefly to three workers at the Organizing for America office in Charles City. The party’s attorneys then contacted the agent “and said if you need to talk to … any of our employees, have those conversations with our attorneys,” Sterzenbach said…”
Now, Monday evening, we learn that a so-called non-partisan organization was caught shredding Republican voter registrations:

A Call to Our Brothers and Sisters in Coal Country
Americans often exude an apathetic attitude regarding the importance of elections. Many people feel as if their lives will be the same the day after the elections, irrespective of the outcome. As such, they are not enthusiastic about voting. Well, in this case, if Obama is reelected, our country will never again resemble the Constitutional Republic that it once was and should continue to be. | Read More »
Do you want to repeal Obamacare?
Claire McCaskill. Bob Casey Jr. Sherrod Brown. Bill Nelson. Tammy Baldwin. Tim Kaine. These Senators and Senate candidates all support or even voted for Obamacare. Importantly, they all have Republican opponents who have a chance to win, thanks in part to the growing support for Mitt Romney in their swing states.
If we want to defeat Obamacare, it is critical that we elect Republicans to as many Senate seats as we can. The sad fact is that we can’t just get 50 and hope to win on a reconciliation tiebreak vote cast by Paul Ryan. You never know if the Democrats might find an anti-TEA party Republican who oppose the will of the voters and come to the other side. So we need to elect as many Republicans as we can.
That means no Republican left behind. George Allen, Tommy Thompson, Connie Mack, Josh Mandel, Tom Smith, and yes, Todd Akin are six key anti-Obamacare votes we need to elect, along with of course Mitt Romney.
We can only do this if we knock on doors, contact voters, and get out the vote for this important election. Please help.

RS Interview: Tom Smith (R CAND, PA-SEN).
This is a race that has recently hit the radar, largely because Tom has seriously narrowed the gap between him and incumbent Senator Bob Casey – and if you don’t like a Republican-leaning pollster’s +2, well, there’s always Quinnipiac’s -3, or Morning Call’s -2. Heck, even the Democratic-leaning PPP had to struggle to get Casey at 50: amazing what you can get with a D+11 | Read More »
Big Bird vs. Coal
“If you don’t have a record to run on… you make a big election about small things.” – Barack Obama, 2008. In 2008, Barack Obama made the above comment. In 2012, he is proving it to be true, attempting to refocus this year’s presidential election on the weighty topic of… Big Bird. But while Obama attempts to eke out a win by spotlighting a muppet, | Read More »

Tech at Night: More on Republican support of the Marketplace Fairness Act
Governors Robert Bentley, Mitch Daniels, Dennis Daugaard, Bill Haslam, Paul LePage, Rick Snyder, and Tom Corbett are part of push for the Marketplace Fairness act. I’ve come across a July letter to John Boehner, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, and Nancy Pelosi. I find it odd they’d do so now, unless they think they have no chance under a potential Republican Congress. Could that be the case? I wonder.
And yes, those are all Republican governors, some of whom were part of the 2010 landslide. It’s only Republicans I’m seeing back MFA, not Democrats. Democrats are fine with just passing new taxes or raising old ones. They aren’t as hard up to maximize collections of old taxes as Republicans are.

Another businessman for the Senate: Tom Smith
One upside of President Obama’s hostility to business is that business leaders like Senator Ron Johnson from Wisconsin have come forward to share their experience. Tom Smith, the Republican Senate nominee in Pennsylvania is one of them. He is endorsed by Pat Toomey. He is up against Bobby Casey, a career politician son of a career politician. But at least his dad was willing to | Read More »
Obama takes another excursion in taxpayer-funded million dollar buses
President Obama is off on another campaign tour utilizing his two $1.1 million buses he had us buy for him so his campaign, unlike the Romney campaign, wouldn’t have to pay the bus fare. Along with a scheduled stop for ice cream on Thursday and attending a full fledged ice cream social on Friday, Obama intends to hype his taxpayer-funded so-called investment in manufacturing. Unfortunately, | Read More »
RS Interview: Joe Rooney (R CAND, PA-13).
PA-13 is, of course, the district of Allyson Schwartz. It’s been considered safe in the past, largely because the district hasn’t changed hands since 1988 – despite being only about D+7. Speaking frankly: I like districts like that. They’re more fun to take away from the Other Side. Particularly when we’re talking about a cipher like Schwartz. And doubly particularly when Pennsylvania is going to | Read More »
Energy Policy *IS* Grassroots Politics
Compare and contrast these maps. First, the “undervote” by county in the recent Pennsylvania Democratic Presidential primary. The numbers in each county represent the proportion of voters in a Democratic primary who selected “no candidate” rather than vote for the incumbent, Barack Obama. Now, the distribution map of the Marcellus Shale:
Electoral implications of the Obama Administration’s War on Coal.
Will this be the 2012 election map? If the Obama administration keeps up their War on Coal (literally: they consider coal more dangerous than terrorism), quite possibly. And it may be at least partially because of coal.
