Is it time to give up?
The entire election has changed tones since recent events in the financialworld have gotten the public’s attention. At least, in my view it has. Untilthe last week, I have believed that regardless of the Congressional outlookthis year, the Presidential race would be close, with a slight advantage tous, the same as the last two Presidential elections. Not anymore, though. I think we have given up | Read More »
What Would a Third Party Be Like?
If things are as they appear (and of course they seldom are), we were all treated today to the spectacle of the American equivalent of what a third Party would be like. We had the Democrats and the Senatorial Republicans, with the House Republicans (perhaps joined by some House Democrats) as the Third Party. What remains to be seen is whether they plan to use | Read More »
I challenge democrat Pelosi!
Sept. 28, 2008 Pelosi’ Progress Report Before the Vote Pelosi made herself look bad. Pelosi, making herself look bad, offered many sound bits attacking Bush and the Administration for the economic mess our country is in. She stated: “The party is over” for Wall Street Execs and CEO’s. Gave misleading kudos to the democrats for tossing the pork out of the Bill; and wrongfully insinuating | Read More »
Barney Frank just stepped up to defend Pelosi
She was asked about her stupid comments about Republicans and how her mouth hurt the passage of the bailout. Barney took the question for her. Can someone point out the stupidity of slandering the Administration and Republicans with 8 years of failure, but from the other side of your mouth saying that everyone has to get behind the Administration’s bill? Can the House Republicans step | Read More »
Thrown Under the Bus Again
Under the Bus Again? Thank goodness, John McCain cares about his country and refuses to listen to a fallen Republican and Democratic government – those who are spending all their idle time pointing a finger at this great man might consider joining him and being a part of the group who will restore our Nation. The Republicans and the Democratics have placed the welfare of | Read More »
Who Exactly Wanted to Invest Social Security in Stock Market?
The Democrats are hoping to use the turmoil in the stock market to scare seniors in a typical election year smear. They’re charging that if Republicans had their way, all their Social Security would be “tied up” in the stock market. Of course, it is simply not true, as this article in The Politico shows. However, there is one politician who promoted investing Social Security | Read More »
Why I got a haircut and became a Republican
(Me, circa 1997) I used to be a left-wing Democrat. I was an intern for Carol Moseley-Braun. I studied with Cornel West. I voted for John Kerry and Al Gore–and in 1996 I even wrote in Ralph Nader rather than vote for Clinton, who was too centrist for me. Then I grew up.

The Halo Is Tarnished
Abraham Lincoln once said, “You may fool all the peoplesome of the time, you can even fool some of the people all of the time, but youcannot fool all of the people all the time.” Until a couple of weeks ago, itappeared as if Barack Obama had proved Lincoln wrong. No one can forget the”messiah-like” speeches that Obama gave to swooning crowds justmonths ago. Now | Read More »
Democrats Ignore Need for More American Energy
High gas prices are hard to ignore, but somehow Democratic leaders in the House and Senate are doing just that. For months the American people have been calling on Congress to do something about energy costs that are straining American families’ budgets and driving up the price of everything from food to airline tickets. Republicans have been listening. Senate Republicans have spent the past several | Read More »
That is the only word for this trend of government bailouts and buyouts. I will concede that these companies are important to the stability of our economy, but tell me why the Federal Reserve has to wait all weekend to decide to bail out AIG? If it had been done on Friday, the cost to the American Tax Payer would have been substantially lower. Yet | Read More »
Why Aren’t The Candidates Talking About “The Issues”?
Over the last few weeks, in between devoting untold column-inches and airtime to anything and everything but actual issues, the mainstream media and liberal commentators (to the extent one can distinguish the two) have been complaining – as has the Obama campaign itself – that we have not had a discussion of “the issues” or “the real issues.” To understand why this is happening, we | Read More »
Holy [EXPLETIVE DELETED]
I would be surprised if Republicans take Congress this November but perhaps my surprise should be diminished. After all, looky here. Key passage: With only 18% of Americans in August saying they approve of the job Congress is doing, similar to the average 20% approval rating for Congress all year, the Democrats in Congress have additional cause for concern. This scant level of approval could | Read More »
Gallup: If These Numbers Are Sustained Through Election Day Republicans Could Be Expected To Regain Control of the U.S. House of Representatives
Gallup has breathed the unthinkable. Republicans have a shot a retaking the House. Of course, one has to presume that such a result would mean the White House is thrown in for good measure. The positive impact of the GOP convention on polling indicators of Republican strength is further seen in the operation of Gallup’s “likely voter” model in this survey. Republicans, who are now | Read More »
