Dems attacking Rush – trying to rob gun stores
Armed robbers are not the sharpest knives in the gene-pool drawer. However, most of them have figured out the basics: don’t try to rob gun stores or karate studios. Stick to convenience stores, gas stations, and other targets unlikely to shoot you or punch your lights out.
Senate Republicans Throw Another Conservative Under the Bus – Jim DeMint
The Politico reported last week that “GOP Pressures Bunning to Quit” and named two “GOP sources” as authority for a story full of false accusations and rumors. These sources implied that Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY) had not made clear his intentions to run for another term and had not raised enough money to win the 2010 Kentucky Senate race. In a story linked on Bluegrass | Read More »
Bartlett to Conservatives – Support Tax Increases and Embrace the Welfare State
Democrat-Light has another cheerleader and his name is Bruce Bartlett. Bartlett, former Reagan and Bush 41 Treasury official, writes in the Politico today in a piece titled “Conservatives Must to Adapt to the Welfare State” that: If conservatives refuse to participate in the debate over how revenues will be raised, then liberals will do it on their own, which will likely give us much higher tax rates and a | Read More »
On the Politico’s Tilt
The Politico would have us believe that they are not in the tank for Obama, rather the coverage of McCain sucking is a reflection of the McCain campaign. The McCain campaign may suck, but the Politico is in the tank for Obama. The problem is that the Politico has a habit of being lazy and running whatever is fed to them on silver spoons. And | Read More »
I want to endorse Barack Obama
These are comments, lightly edited, that I posted as a Contributor to The Arena feature over at the Politico yesterday: I would like to endorse Barack Obama. I really would. Like many Republicans, I’ve been unhappy with my party on many fronts over the past decade. Moreover, given that John McCain has publicly called me “corrupt” and more, there’s not a lot of personal affinity | Read More »
Norquist on McCain and Obama’s Definition of “Change”
Politico has been posting a series of questions lately and the recent one elicited a very common-sense response from and straight to the point kind of guy. The question: Suggest one question for the foreign policy debate and for extra credit, what is McCain thinking? Grover Norquist’s reponse: On what is McCain thinking: Why am I expected to defend the Bush track record? I ran | Read More »
Palin Is Not Backing Off Her “Task From God” Statement. The Media Is Because The Media Got It Wrong.
This is a silly headline from the Politico. Jonathan Martin’s title is “Palin backs off “task from God” statement.” It looks to me like the media is backing off. As characterized by the media, Palin allegedly said the troops to Iraq were on a “task from God.” But that is not what Palin said. And she is not backing off what she said. She is | Read More »
Roger Simon of Politico In A Snit: “Why The Media Should Apologize” To Governor Palin?
I read the Following article at Politico and just had to reply: [url=http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0908/13143.html]Why the media should apologize[/url] I thought this was a joke at the beginning of the column. I thought it was a parody of the Leftist arguments in defense of their despicable treatment of Governor Palin. It turns out it’s a juvenile and amateurish attempt at a serious response to Republican complaints of | Read More »
McCain has won if Obama snubbed Hillary to this extent
If the following report from the Politico is true, and for all we know Obama could disprove it with his announcement, the presidential election is game, set, match: There’s one Democrat who would seem to have little or no chance of being picked by Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) to be his running mate – his former opponent, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.). But it’s not | Read More »
Ben Smith of Politico Admits Obama Supported Infanticide
It’s great that members of the mainstream media are now getting in on the act and admitting that Obama did support infanticide in the Illinois State Senate. Check out Ben’s post here. What? Don’t see the admission from Ben that Obama did support infanticide? Go read it again. That Smith is slinging Obama’s mud against Jill Stanek is proof positive and a total admission that | Read More »
Mike Allen pushes a left wing smear against McCain and treats it as his own
Mike Allen at the Politico has an article that says all of McCain’s gaffes are raising questions about his age. The McCain campaign says Obama has had plenty of flubs of his own, including a reference to “57 states” and a string of misstated place names during the primaries that Republicans gleefully sent around as YouTubes. But the mistakes raise a serious, if uncomfortable question: | Read More »
The GOP, Online Politics, and Internet Regulation
The Politico today has a column penned by David All, a young GOP internet consultant, and Saul Anuzis, Chairman of the Michigan GOP. The column looks at the premise that the GOP is behind its Democratic counterparts online, and suggests one possible reason why – we don’t support the idea of big government intervention in regulating the Internet. As Republicans, we must not only adopt | Read More »
