Quick Correction to Georgia House Primaries
In the previous article regarding the Georgia US House primary races for the GOP, I inadvertently hit the “publish” button too soon. In the 9th District race, Doug Collins was incorrectly endorsed. In a district rated +30 Republican by Cook and likewise by this writer, a review of the congressional record of Doug Collins indicates that for such a GOP/conservative district, Collins does not meet | Read More »
Georgia Republican Primary Endorsements- Part 1
This is the first of a two-part series on the Republican primary in Georgia. This state is split into a two part treatment because the resignation of Saxby Chambliss has created a domino effect where three sitting congressmen are vying to be the Republican candidate for his seat thus creating three open Republican-held seats in the House out of Georgia in addition to the other | Read More »
Kentucky Republican Primary Endorsements
Since there are no challengers to any of the five of six Republican members of the House from Kentucky and since Michael Mcfarlane will challenge the only Democrat- John Yarmuth- in the Third Congressional District, the only primary drama in the state and perhaps the country is the primary battle for the Republican-held seat of Mitch McConnell. There are two decent websites this writer consults | Read More »
Pennsylvania Republican Primary Endorsements
Next Tuesday,Pennsylvania will hold their primaries. The gubernatorial election originally played large in Pennsylvania on the GOP side until all of embattled incumbent Republican Governor Tom Corbett’s opposition dropped by the wayside. Therefore, all the drama in that race will played out on the Democratic side. Originally, Allyson Schwartz was the favorite, but that has changed of late and it appears Tom Wolfe is set | Read More »
West Virginia Republican Primary Endorsements
Besides their three House seats- one vacant and a Democratic held, but vulnerable seat- West Virginia has an open Democratic Senate seat up for grabs this year. There are three Republicans in the mix for that Senate seat- Larry Butcher, who was a 2006 state senate candidate, Matthew Dodrill, a candidate for Wood County assessor in 2012, and 2nd District Congresswoman Shelley Moore-Capito. In reality, | Read More »
On My Endorsements and Congressional Districts
Recently, in anticipation of primaries to determine Republican candidates in the midterm elections, I have published a few articles. In some, I have been taken to task. Without responding in the comments section, I feel it necessary to explain how I come to certain conclusions. The first is determining the relative strength of the district for the Republican or Democratic Party. The obvious starting point is the | Read More »
Onward Christian Soldiers!
As our friend Matt Drudge would say… developing. Sorry, Matt, I don’t have that kind of patience. Somewhere between 60 and 76 per cent of Americans identify themselves as ‘Christian’. There’s another 2.1 per cent of the population that are Jewish. Together, we comprise the largest Judeo-Christian nation in the world. We also represent the largest voting demographic in the nation. You wouldn’t know it | Read More »
Where’s The Tea Party? Try South Carolina.
If I were psychic I couldn’t have made a better call. I make no metaphysical claims… quite the contrary. Ever since the 2010 elections, the Republicrats and the Lame Stream lap dogs of the Obama regime have been at great pains to convince us, convince you, that we were an aberration, a momentary phenomenon, a freak of nature. We would soon be absorbed into the | Read More »
To Newt, Or Not To Newt.
I really hesitated to write this article now, because the field for the Republican nomination remains fluid. As a matter of record, I will support whoever we eventually bring forth to do battle with MaoBama. I think that as things stand right now, any Republican candidate can defeat Barack Hussein Obama, except Ron Paul. Ron Paul, though he has a small organization of dedicated fanatics, | Read More »
Newt Gingrich’s (Unlikely) Path to the Nomination
Former House speaker Newt Gingrich has emerged as the most formidable of non-Romney candidates in the Republican Party presidential primary contest. His chances of winning the conservative Iowa caucuses and South Carolina election in January seem high now but he could struggle to convince right wing voters that he best represents an alternative vision to Barack Obama’s. Gingrich has polled at roughly 27 percent in | Read More »
