Bush’s GOP and Churchill’s Tories
Winston Churchill had led the British to victory in the Second World War, yet in the first post-war election, he was not reelected prime minister. Victimized by his own success, the British people in peacetime were free to focus on other matters and elected the opposition party instead. Similarly, George W. Bush’s Republican Party will be replaced by its opponents after having successfully kept the | Read More »
Obama Campaign Fraud Allegations Will Not Be Investigated
It looks like the Obama machine is to be given free reign to operate beyond the law–but, I guess that’s not news, is it? During the months leading up to the election, numerous complaints and allegations were filed regarding blatant campaign finance fraud occurring in the Obama campaign with donations from the middle east and other obviously fraudulent sources.
Michael Steele & the Republican “big tent”
The Hotline On Call this morning reports a “Draft Michael Steele” effort to elevate the former Maryland lt. governor to the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee. The online petition is being pushed by Steele friend Tony Marsh and his consulting firm,
What is it with these GOP Congressmen from Georgia?
Last summer, Lynn Westmoreland said the following about Barack Obama: “Just from what little I’ve seen of her and Mr. Obama, Sen. Obama, they’re a member of an elitist-class individual that thinks that they’re uppity.” You don’t need a dog-whistle to hear racial tinging with the word “uppity”. especially for someone who lives in Georgia. Westmoreland was reelected,but the stupid comment lives on. Yesterday, GOP | Read More »
Where should conservatives be?
P.J. O’Rourke offers an acerbic template, and he views a conservative America as a “land of freedom and responsibility, knowledge, opportunity, accomplishment, honor, truth, trust, and one boring hour each week spent in itchy clothes at church, synagogue, or mosque.” His thesis is that we had the opportunity to move the country in that direction and we blew it, and it’s a thesis I agree | Read More »
Sarah Palin And The Future Of The Republican Party
Sarah Palin is the future of the Republican Party. She accomplished in one week, by herself, with sincerity and integrity what it took Barack Obama two years of scheming, dissembling and fraud with the help of a legion of minions financed by rich power brokers to achieve. The week before the convention she was eating a corn dog at the Alaska State Fair chatting with | Read More »
Finding the Soul of the GOP
Before we have the battle for the future of our country, the GOP is going to have a battle for its soul. The GOP has been using conservatives who were upset with the Democrats for some time now, especially in the South. The thing is, though, the party is not run by real conservatives. It is full of moderates, half-liberals, and people cutting deals with | Read More »
Gingrich Says He’d Serve As GOP Chairman
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Newt Gingrich has let it be known that, if Republicans want him, the former U.S House speaker is willing to serve as chairman of the national party and lead it out of the wilderness it’s blundered into.” Any thoughts? http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/shared-blogs/ajc/politicalinsider/entries/2008/11/09/gingrichsayshedserveasgop.html?cxntlid=homepagetab_newstab
History holds for us the hope of a bright future.
We are in a sorry state, friends As of January, the amount of power Republicans hold in Washington will have to be measured using the Kelvin scale. The Republican “brand name” is about as popular right now as the intestinal flu and we are reeling from the presidency of one of the least popular American leaders in history. We lack a strong, well-spoken national Republican | Read More »
Why Sarah Palin Matters.
Since Election Day, an increasing number of conservatives and Republicans have written here and on other sites and publications of the need for a new direction. I believe that for our party to move into a new century, it needs to do so decisively and without hesitation. I believe that Governor Sarah Palin is the person to do that. Whether indifferent or openly hostile towards | Read More »
Time to move Onward and Upward
Seeing how we lost tough races this past election I think it has to do with a few reasons. These reasons include the erosion of the conservative views and lack of trust that our elected officials hold in office. We need to fix these problems in order to get our ideas out in the open. We need to re-energize our base and find out why | Read More »
Request for Proposal: Major Turnaround and Re-organization
This is a look at tactical turnaround strategies for the GOP from the perspective of a management consultant and private equity professional. In today’s marketplace, the turnaround business is growing quickly. Many companies are facing re-organization processes, financial and debt restructuring, and full-scale operational turnarounds, in efforts to implement efficiencies and stay alive through the downturn. The Republican Party must also face a turnaround, one | Read More »
The Need For Organization in ARand Beyond
I live in the “red” state of Arkansas. We are a strong Christian, conservative bunch, who continuously elect folks like Vic Snyder to Congress. It never ceases to amaze me that a state where folks do not believe in abortion, do not believe in same-sex marriage, has only 13 “wet” counties out of 75, etc, etc, etc, cannot find one viable Republican opponent for Blanche | Read More »
Shades of ’93
On a night like tonight, I cannot help but reflect upon my experiences in the summer of 1993. It was at this time that I was an undergraduate living in Pittsburgh, spending my first summer away from home. Bill Clinton had just been elected the previous year, with a sizable Democratic majority in Congress. The honeymoon hadn’t yet worn off from his presidency, and the | Read More »
as Ronald Reagan would say, now is A Time For Choosing
On this day in 1964, Ronald Reagan spoke to a nationwide television audience on behalf of the Republican presidential nominee. Here are the words of Ronaldus Magnus: “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth. And this idea that government is beholden to the people, that it has no other source of power except | Read More »
