Speaker Boehner’s Electile Dysfunction
For the first time in years, House Speaker John Boehner has a serious primary challenger. JD Winteregg is a self-described Tea Party candidate. The Speaker is worried enough to be running TV ads in the district, something he has seldom done in the past. Winteregg has an ad of his own, and it’s sure to raise a few, er, eyebrows. Why Boehner is worried Winteregg | Read More »
Why Libertarian Kids, Not Drones, Scare McCain and Graham
Jennifer Rubin—WaPo’s token conservative—said it perfectly: McCain lost his cool with Rand Paul and sounded like the old man down the street screaming to the new kids on the block, “Get off my lawn!” The real reason McCain and Lindsey Graham embarrassed themselves on the floor of Senate had nothing to do with what Rand Paul said. Rand Paul’s ideas terrify McCain, Graham, and most of | Read More »
Lynn Westmoreland has fallen in love with the marble
Do you remember those four staunch fiscal conservatives — Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI), Tim Huelskamp (R-KS), Walter Jones (R-NC), and David Schweikert (R-AZ) – who were unceremoniously booted off from their committees assignments? Republican leadership insisted that they were removed based on some yet-to-be-seen “scorecard.” House Speaker John Boehner later denied that, telling the affected members that “there is no scorecard” and that Steering Committee, | Read More »
Romney… Stand Up, Or Stand Down!
I’m seriously conflicted. I’m beginning to have flashbacks to the presidential race of 2008. There are some disturbing parallels between the candidacy of the hapless John “you can’t do it my friend” McCain and the present candidate, the anointed of the Washington Republican Establishment. It’s akin to the feeling I got when I realized that George Bush was anything but the conservative he positioned himself | Read More »
Wasted Opportunity – Who Pulled the Plug on the TEA Party ?
Wasted Opportunity Who Pulled the Plug on the Conservative Revival ? An Analysis by Scott Rohter, June 2012 Republicans never had a better chance to put a solid conservative onto the ballot and into the White House than we did in this year’s Republican Primary Elections. We had all of the pent up energy from the TEA Party Movement that has been building for the | Read More »
America Needs Heroes
Edited by Mr. Jordan Torres The new Marvel superhero movie, “The Avengers” is out this weekend. People are waiting in long lines and trying to buy tickets to sold out shows. They don’t just want to be entertained. They’re not simply looking for an escape from their daily lives. I believe that Americans are hungry for a hero. In a time when our leaders | Read More »
Is There a Republican Establishment calling the Shots?
While over at ricochet, I came across an interesting piece by Troy Senik about the so-called Republican establishment. Senik quoted a Time Magazine article where Jeb Bush contends there is no Republican establishment. Jeb Bush told Time Magazine “I don’t know what the Republican establishment is. I haven’t learned the secret handshake, and I don’t know where to go for a membership card.” Of all | Read More »
The Republican Establishment Haunts Newt: the Dangers of Political Payback
Like many people who comprise the Republican voting base, I do not know Newt personally. We only know what we’ve read, heard, and recently seen in the debates. The twice resurgence of Newt during this primary season can either be attributed to the adage, America loves an underdog, or, as mentioned in another post, he articulates the scars of life, which most Americans have experienced | Read More »
Now Is The Time.
I know now how our patriot forefathers, good British subjects all, could have been forced into acts of civil disobedience followed by open rebellion against what they saw as a government out of control and committing illegal acts against the citizens of the colonies. Freshman members of the 112th Congress I, and many other patriots, have been experiencing these same emotions. It’s not easy to | Read More »
Party Cry Babies Bigger Problem Than O’Donnell
I thought this was about the will of the people. Apparently only if that will follows the party line. Who knew that establishment Republicans would be as territorial as a mama bear? Well, actually anybody who has been paying attention. The DC establishment is made up of both D’s and R’s neither of which like it when control slips from their grasp. Christine O’Donnell’s primary | Read More »
