An Amazing Time

She was amazing. “America needs a commander in chief,” she said, ” not a global community organizer.” Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, Michael Williams, Ken Cuccinelli, Karen Handel, Tom Price, Pat Toomey, Roy Blunt, Jim DeMint, and Rick Perry all joined us in person or via video.

    Kay Bailey Hutchison will resign seat to run for Governor of Texas.

    I find some of the rhetoric going on between Senator Hutchison and Governor Perry to be already a bit harsh, so here are the bare bones of the story: Hutchison told WBAP-AM (820) host Mark Davis that she would officially kick-off her campaign in August. “Formal announcement: I am in.

    TEA Parties, Texas Style

    Palin to back Perry in Texas

    A story on this morning sheds a lot of light, in my opinion, on what Sarah Palin’s plans going forward are likely to be. And let me say that while I thought Sen. Hutchison’s “dissing” of Palin was blown a little out of proportion, I certainly can’t say the senator didn’t bring this upon herself. GOP politics here in Texas may be finally getting | Read More »

He has | Read More »
