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 »
In my post yesterday I struck a cord. I was bombarded with comments; some enlightening, some negative. But I meant no harm in my overall message; and to those who think I’m some covert lefty troll; you’re dead wrong, dead wrong. I do no align myself with the left, in fact I’ve been rejected by them. Truth is moderates aren’t welcome anywhere because we aren’t | Read More »
SHOCK! Macomb County, MI: Vote GOP and Lose Your Dog
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. In a shocking twist on their traditional efforts at disenfranchisement the Chairman of the Democratic Party in Macomb County, Michigan has announced plans to take conservative voter suppression to an unprecedented and shocking level this November. Speaking exclusively with RightMichigan.com, Macomb County Commissioner and Dem Party Boss Ed Bruley announced plans by the local organization’s volunteers to use dog | Read More »
Follow Up Post
I want to follow up on my previous post about the Conservative Movement. I didn’t mean to say that Conservative views should be left at the front door; and I never said we should rethink our free market system or our foreign policy. In fact I’m probably more hawkish than most RedState members. My views overall have been one of a more centrist approach. I | Read More »
The Death Of The Conservative Movement
Like Clinton and the Democratic party John McCain will rewrite the meaning of Republican if he’s so lucky as to take the oath of office. Many Conservatives, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingram, and the ever mouthy Sean Hannity have openly objected to McCain as their party’s nominee. They say he’s not Conservative enough but that hasn’t stopped the Maverick from cleaning house; and rightfully so. Now, | Read More »
How Republicans Spent Their Summer
House Republicans welcomed their Democrat colleagues back to work yesterday. Today they reiterated their calls for an “all-of-the-above” energy plan, the recurring theme of their their five-week protest on the House floor.
Republicans: More Trusted On National Security Issues
So sayeth this poll. The “Greenberg” in Greenberg, Quinlan Rosner is Stan Greenberg, who is no one’s idea of a Republican pollster. This ought to terrify the Obama campaign.
Larry Kudlow: There’s Something Missing in St. Paul
Larry Kudlow nails it, again. As much as I love Palin’s speech Kudlow correctly points out that it failed to connect our current economic slump to rising energy costs which are as a direct result of failed Democrat policy. In fact, Democrats want higher energy prices and seek to tax our companies through cap and trade which would crush our economy.
We’re Getting the Brand Back Together!
Rasmussen reports that the percentage of Americans who consider themselves Republicans continued to climb in August — just as it did in July: During August, the number of Americans who consider themselves to be Republicans increased two percentage points to 33.2% while the number of Democrats was little changed at 38.9%. That gives the Democrats a net advantage of 5.7 percentage points, down two points | Read More »
Another Day at the Office for the Democrat Attack Machine
As Hurricane Gustav is ravaging the coast of the Louisiana and the news media is breathlessly reporting flooding in the 9th Ward of New Orleans, exactly how are politicos responding? John McCain has ordered all negative statements about the Obama campaign stripped from the speeches at the convention. Tom Daschle is out attacking Sarah Palin saying she has “no experienced” and “are we ready . | Read More »
Why I Hate The GOP and Conservatives
I want to say, to all these Neo-Con, religious wackos out here; how dare you unite behind this ticket and become energized. How dare you. You are not suppose to show up to this election. You’re not suppose to have a fighting chance against our lord and savior Barack Obama. Did you not hear his speech? Did you not see the teary eyes in the | Read More »
The Accomplished Sarah Palin
Thursday night/Friday morning, on the eve of John McCain’s announcement of who his running mate would be, was an all-nighter for this scribe. I really was tired and sleepy, but I just couldn’t make myself go to bed. Instead I was following this thread of comments on the Draft Sarah Palin For Vice President website. Adam Brickley, who created the site in February of 2007, | Read More »
