The Politics of Shopping and Consumer Decisions
As Americans become more politically polarized will we choose to patronize or avoid a store, brand, product, or restaurant based on that corporation’s political activity? For example, if you are an active Democrat would you avoid Walmart if you knew that their corporate contributions lean towards Republicans? You could go to Target instead, but their contributions also help fill the GOP coffers. If this information leaves you feeling in | Read More »
Portman Come Monday Morning?
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com “Nobody knows nuthin’” to paraphrase Peter Clemenza from Godfather: Part I, Save Jerseyans But all indicators suggest Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate announcement is close. Very close. We just don’t know how close (three days versus three weeks). Or who it will be. A little harmless speculation to keep your brain turning? Exhibit A: U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH), who | Read More »
Republican Brand Hurts Romney While Obama Wins Culture Wars
Currently the Real Clear Politics electoral map shows President Obama in the lead with 221 electoral votes from states that are either solid, likely or leaning. As most of you know 270 is the number needed to win the presidency. Seeing this chart makes me want to tear my hair out and scream, “What is wrong with you people?” How could Obama be leading 221 | Read More »

Your Country Needs You!
*The Supreme Court’s ruling on ObamaCare was definitely not what Conservatives were hoping for. ObamaCare is unconstitutional and even morally wrong in many of its provisions, and even though our Court has ruled it constitutional, I don’t believe it is beneficial if we continue to bask in the disappointment we felt on Thursday (and still feel today). I say this because we have no way | Read More »
[VIDEO] Racism Nonexistent in Fast & Furious
Al Sharpton and other Democrats are denying that AG Eric Holder did anything wrong in connection with the failed Operation Fast & Furious, and are instead suggesting that the investigation is racially motivated. These claims of racism are ridiculous, and this is why I feel that way:
President Obama and Chief Justice Roberts Photo Caption Contest
Re-posted from PJ Media The fact that Supreme Chief Justice Roberts cast the deciding vote upholding Obamacare means it is time for another world famous Tatler Photo Caption Contest. These two leaders have not only made history this week with the Affordable Care Act ruling but they also have a very interesting personal history. First, in 2005 then Senator Obama voted against the Supreme Court nomination of | Read More »
Mr. Obama, you had an option, sir.
The year is 1984. The setting is Ottawa, Canada. The scene is a debate between the top three parties of that nation: the ruling Liberals led by John Turner, the Opposition Progressive Conservatives led by Brian Mulroney, and the New Democrats led by Ed Broadbent. The storyline is a federal election. And now for the background: You see, the United States wasn’t the only nation | Read More »
Today Is The Beginning Of The Rest Of The Campaign
Even though Team Obama and the Democrats are celebrating today’s Supreme Court decision upholding Obamacare, numerous arguments can be made that this decision is actually bad news for President Obama’s re-election prospects. Chief among them is the Supreme Court has re-branded Obamacare as a tax. Harken back to President Obama’s September, 2009 interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos where Obama vehemently denied that the health care | Read More »
ObamaCare: It’s Not a Tax…Oh Wait, It’s a Tax
This morning the Supreme Court ruled that ObamaCare, in its entirety, is indeed constitutional. The individual mandate was ruled constitutional by a 5-4 vote, with Chief Justice John Roberts the swing vote; however, it was ruled constitutional as a tax, not a “mandate”, which clearly goes against what President Obama tried to sell the American people. I do feel that this was a loss not | Read More »
Mr. President, I Salute You
Yep, that’s right Mr. President – today I’m writing to salute you. It’s not because I think that the unelected Supreme Court is going to back Obamacare or anything (I don’t). It’s not because your vision of a world where America leads from behind has strengthened our standing in the international arena (it hasn’t). It’s because every day I wake up, open my computer and see that you have once | Read More »
A New Level of Arrogance
Brian Terry’s family deserves answers. The American people deserve answers. Operation Fast & Furious gave U.S. weapons to drug cartels in Mexico; somehow this was justified because this way, we would “know where the guns were.” They were going to acquire weapons anyway, so someone inside some federal agency (we still don’t know which) got this program approved and running. Now, eighteen months after the | Read More »
Quote for the Day: Illegal Immigration Edition
Just some food for thought in light of Obama’s recent decision to circumvent Congress and grant amnesty to illegal aliens under the age of 30. The quote is long but I do think it’s worth posting: I do not remember one single instance in 30 years where the Immigration service has removed strikebreakers to the extent the workers were helped and the illegal alien workers were removed. The | Read More »
[POLL] Should anyone be given amnesty?
Given President Obama’s recent decision to once again overlook the checks and balances here in America, what do you think: Should amnesty be granted to certain people, or should everyone have to go through the same citizenship process? Should illegals who are minors or who meet “certain criteria” be granted amnesty?
Obama Amnesty not Celebrated by All Illegals
Previously, I’ve highlighted the responses by various Republicans to Obama’s decision to “loosen” deportation rules on illegal immigrants. They have heard, and I’m sure will continue to hear, from their constituents and fed-up Americans across the country. All of these things are generally expected from conservatives and, one would hope, Republicans. But according to one article in the Christian Science Monitor, even some illegals are displeased | Read More »
Will Romney Use Obama’s Economic Gaffe ‘Almost Every Single Day’ Like The 2004 Bush Campaign Used John Kerry’s Infamous Gaffe?
When I first heard Obama say that “the private sector is doing fine” I immediately imagined champagne corks popping off the walls in Romney’s Boston campaign headquarters. There was no doubt from the beginning that Obama’s statement was going to be a game changing gaffe on par with the two other Hall of Fame gaffes committed by the losers of the last two presidential campaigns, | Read More »
