Congressman Blunt on Democrat changes in House Rules.
A news story which hasnt made any news at all, but is of utmost importance is the Democrats doing away with “prompt” Motion to Recommits. Not only did this motion break with more than a hundred years of tradition in the House of Representatives, but it severly restricts any voice or rights which the minorty has. I asked Congressman Blunt a few questions on the | Read More »
Cantor to Run for Whip
I have just heard from Eric Cantor’s office that Eric will announce at 12:30 p.m. his intention to run for House Republican Whip. Cantor, elected in 2000, won his Richmond-area Congressional seat last night with 64% of the vote and received the highest total vote of any Virginia Congressman—including Democrats. (221,467 votes) Back in August 27, 2008, we endorsed Eric Cantor for Vice President because | Read More »
I just left a message for Roy Blunt…
I did not watch Late Edition yesterday on CNN. If I want to watch something as dishonest as CNN I will do the SciFi channel at least they have plot structures that makes some sense. I read the review from the Sunday morning talk shows and then went to some other sites and confirmed Roy Blunt’s “whip me, beat me” comments. That “if an economic | Read More »

Bill Burton, Obama Spokesman, Caught in Flagrant Lie to Media
Here’s the thing: a lot of the media is not intentionally out to get McCain. They are just damned lazy and their sympathies lie with Obama. So when they get stuff from the Obama campaign, they don’t question it and they report it. That’s why the credible ones have had so many back peddles. And yet, they don’t learn their lesson. Here is the latest: | Read More »
Obama Campaign Purposefully Edits Blunt on McCain
I’m no fan of Congressman Roy Blunt, but purposefully lying about what any Congressman says is pretty low, especially when it’s of the “let’s cut out the first four words and last eight words of this television quote to make it seem like he’s saying the opposite of what he just said” variety. Which happens to be what the Obama campaign just did: REP. ROY | Read More »
‘Why Is Nancy Pelosi Taking Care of Personal Business Rather Than the People’s Business?’
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is in Ann Arbor, Mich., tonight promoting her new book. Next week she’ll make stops in several California cities before swinging through Denver on her way to the Democratic National Convention (view complete schedule). Unfortunately for Pelosi, Americans aren’t buying it — the book has an Amazon sales rank of 1,567. As she talks about her legacy in posh book stores, millions | Read More »
Republican Revolt Resonating Back Home
Today marked the fifth day that Republicans took to the U.S. House floor to talk about their “all of the above” energy strategy. The “Don’t Go Movement,” as conservatives are calling it, shows no sign of slowing down. House GOP Whip Roy Blunt told me he returned to Washington today after constituents in Missouri encouraged him to head back to Capitol Hill to be part | Read More »
