Mitt Romney still doesn’t understand why he lost the election
Mitt Romeny is still totally clueless when it comes to the issue of understanding just exactly how and why he lost the election. The Romney campaign was a combination of the same old RINO loser campaign consultants that managed all the other losing GOP campaigns as well as some other amateurs he brought in that understood little more than his inside-the-beltway RINO consultants. The result | Read More »
They That Are Fated To Be Fools Have One Consolation
Marco Rubio told Sean Hannity yesterday that he had wanted border security before amnesty, but now thinks we need amnesty first so, in paying the government for their amnesty, we can use the illegal aliens’ to pay for securing the border. After all, the border will take several years to secure, so we should encourage people to cross the border illegally and forge documents to | Read More »
Tech at Night: Republicans right on broadband. An anti-anarchist, pro-America online gang emerges.
Normally in Tech at Night I try to find the big trends that can be pieced together from all the little stories we see going on. Right now the trend continues to be that Republicans are trying to make American Internet access even better than it already is, while the rest of the world is going in the wrong direction.
Don’t believe me? Europe wants to regulate the Internet even more. Meanwhile, Congressional Republicans are hard at work looking to protect us online from China, and to make sure wireless spectrum is allocated efficiently, rather than set aside for Obama’s preferred vendors.

Go Big or Go Home
In 1960, Barry Goldwater published The Conscience of a Conservative. In it, he noted Conservatism is not an economic theory, though it has economic implications. The shoe is precisely on the other foot: it is Socialism that subordinates all other considerations to man’s material well-being. It is Conservatism that puts material things in their proper place — that has a structured view of the human | Read More »
A rabbit hole that began with a wrestler
You may be one of the, like, two people who read this post about a professional wrestler who called a politician out about his lies concerning the Internet Sales Tax. Well, after that story broke, people started circulating the rumor that Glenn Jacobs – better known to wrestling fans as Kane – was considering a bid for the Tennessee senate. While I really, really hoped this | Read More »
Don’t Make it About Barack Obama
I have to agree with Ben Domenech from the Transom this morning. Republicans will lose if they try to make the IRS scandal about Barack Obama. We are not going to convince a majority of Americans who voted for him that they were wrong. We spent the last four years trying that.As Domenech noted this morning:Here’s the hard thing Republicans have to do if they | Read More »
Republicans & GOP Donors Should Focus Here
We are all — all of us — attracted to shiny objects. Oftentimes we fixate on the shiny object and never see past the shine to what the object actually is or what it can actually do for us or whether it is even a distraction. The IRS scandal is the latest shiny object on which the GOP will fixate. But if, instead of fixating, | Read More »
The Waste of Republican Donors
The GOP needs to stop acting like because it lost the battle of 2012, it lost the war. The war continues and Barack Obama’s side just gave the GOP some major new weapons to use against his destructive policies. How many hundreds of millions of dollars were wasted by Republican donors in 2012 to prop up Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum or Mitt Romney? How | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh and the Need for Spine
The Politico is reporting (read: let’s wait for a second source to confirm it) that the RNC, well, “[t]he Republican National Committee has chosen a Karl Rove-linked voter data project called Liberty Works to help it compete with Democrats in the digital arena. Liberty Works will team up with Data Trust, whose chairman of the board is former RNC Chairman Mike Duncan, committee spokeswoman Kirsten | Read More »
We Can Win. But Only if We Fight to Win.
“Instead of these three Senators backing down, we should be sending them reinforcements. Until then, you might want to pick up the phone, dial (202) 224-5922, and tell Ted Cruz thanks for standing up for America.”I’ve been on the road the last two days. In finally getting to emails this morning, I see a lot of people have emailed about Joe Scarborough taking on Ted | Read More »
NRCC & GOP About to Give Labor Unions a Huge Win
It is an amazing testament to how bad the other candidates were that Mark Sanford ran away with the race in South Carolina’s first congressional district. A deeply flawed man, he was the one guy the primary voters knew wouldn’t go wobbly in Washington. But they, and I, presumed he was over the issues with his ex-wife. Unfortunately, a couple of weeks ago we learned | Read More »
Senator Jeff Flake Sets Record for Drowning in the Potomac Waters
I’ll try to remain respectful toward the office, but it’ll be hard. After all, the man is either lying to our faces or under the influence of Potomac Fever. He went from conservative Congressman to fellow-traveler in about three months. My statement is provoked by a column, supposedly written by Senator Jeff Flake, which appeared April 20 in the National Review Online, titled “The Conservative Case | Read More »
Kermit Gosnell: Feminists Deny Abortion Doctor Cover Up and Blame Conservatives
As the Kermit Gosnell case proceeds, the grand jury report was released this week detailing the abortion doctor’s house of horrors. Yet, as conservatives slam media outlets for their lack of coverage, the left reacted by saying that they had reported on Gosnell since his arrest in 2011, and how the pro-life movement is somehow responsible for the “underground” operation he set up in Philadelphia. While it’s great | Read More »
Income tax rates…what is “fair”?
As we wrap up the annual waste-of-lives-endeavor (the federal income tax system), a poll again seems relevant. The poll reported in the Wall Street Journal asked what would be a “fair” tax, not on hard-earned, everything-at-risk, rags-to-riches American success story individuals but rather, for a lottery windfall. The results revealed that less than one-fourth chose a rate for the mega-million lottery winners of over 30% | Read More »
