Can Rick Perry Rebound With a Flat Tax?
The Perry campaign wants to reboot, having retooled and refined its message and tried hard to get back on the jobs message. Okay, fine, but first the Perry camp needs to answer a basic question – why should supporters who went all in for him and wound up feeling burned give him a second shot? I asked him about that and it was, perhaps, a | Read More »
The Rollercoaster goes back down for Herman Cain
We saw last week that Herman Cain was on his way up before the Politico story, and fell off slightly afterward. Friday brought us a new poll which reinforces past conclusions. Yes, he really was on the way down last week, despite raising money in the seven figures.

Cain on the roller coaster
It always pleases me when two polls taken close together have very similar results. Even if they make out to be wrong some speculation of mine. So yes, it’s looking like Herman Cain isn’t exactly being helped this week. And if the new Rasmussen poll is genuinely showing a trend from the previous national poll, then he needs this story done as soon as possible. | Read More »
Cain surging… even before the new story fully broke
Obviously the big story this week in the Republican Presidential race is the story Politico broke discussing sexual harassment allegations, and whether Herman Cain would be helped or hurt by that story. As it turns out, if the new Quinnipiac poll is to be believed, he was already on the way up before the story broke.
Gov. Perry at the Iowa Republican Presidential Forum on Manufacturing.
Texas governor and Republican Presidential candidate Rick Perry participated in a Presidential manufacturing forum today in Pella, Iowa (hosted by the Vermeer Corporation): and it’s pretty interesting viewing. (The entire forum (and transcript) can be seen here.) Governor Perry answered questions from both the moderators and the audience: if I had to sum up fifteen minutes of informed, fairly specific commentary in one sentence it | Read More »

Herman Cain ’12 Iowa caucuses: Obama, 2008? Or Dean, 2004?
Hot Air and Ace of Spades HQ are both contemplating the issue of Herman Cain, whether he can win, and whether he is truly likely to win. Fortunately or unfortunately – depending on your point of view – I take a utilitarian point of view on the matter: what does the Herman Cain Iowa plan look like? Does it look like this? Campaign organizer: We’re | Read More »
Perry’s Positive Outlook for America
Gov. Rick Perry has released his second positive ad this week. First, there was the t.v. ad he started running Wednesday in Iowa simply called “Creating Jobs“. You might have missed that one since people were instead focused on attempts to make an issue out of debates, or the President’s birth certificate. Today he releases an ad titled “Cut, Balance and Grow“. This one highlights | Read More »
Right Now It’s The Message
I got emailed from a few people tonight that I was rather harsh toward Governor Perry’s campaign on CNN tonight. I was. When Rick Perry unveiled his economic plan, he spent the better part of two days talking about Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Now, instead of moving back to the economic plan, we’ve moved on to talking about Rick Perry and debates. Byron York makes | Read More »
Perry had better get Fed Up, fast. This is Herman Cain time.
Rick Perry had better get fed up fast with his polling situation. As I warned on Tuesday, he’s teetering at the brink of irrelevance. This is Herman Cain’s moment. The new Fox News poll only confirms the CBS poll.
Time for the Conservative Movement to Wake Up.
In 2008 Conservatism, and our nation, took a thorough beating. The reigns of power were passed on to a revolutionary cause inspired by Marx. Some may chastise me for such inflammatory rhetoric, but I don’t really feel like mincing words in this post. The current administration is filled with Marxists, this is simple fact. Proof of this was seen mere moments after President Obama finished | Read More »
Rick Perry’s Birtherism
On a day when he should be focused on his 20/20 plan, the press wants Rick Perry to focus on Barack Obama’s ‘birth certificate.” Why? Because a Parade interviewer asked Perry about it and Perry did not flat out say “Obama is an American citizen.” So now the press is after him. John Harwood of the New York Times asked Perry three times about the | Read More »
A Conservative Look at Perry’s Economic Plan
When Herman Cain proposed his 9-9-9 plan, many conservatives became energized, despite their misgivings with the fine print of the plan. It wasn’t so much the details of the proposal that excited the base, as most conservatives intuitively recoiled from a consumption tax; it was the boldness of the plan that resonated with them. Cain’s 9-9-9 brought some excitement to a race that was defined | Read More »
