Out of Ignorance or Out of Spite?
On more than one occasion in the last couple of weeks (the most vital couple of weeks as we near election day), President Barack Obama has said things that are, simply put, strategically dumb. It’s more than likely that Republicans, barring a tremendous disaster, will take a majority in the Senate this year. The Democrats, even House ones, are struggling in key races, and groups | Read More »
Harry Reid’s Ebolan Roulette.
Specifically, the Surgeon General nomination. Why is Vivek Murthy’s nomination stalled, again? Well, as Byron York reminds us it’s primarily because wants it stalled: It would take just 51 of the Senate’s 55 Democrats to confirm Murthy. But that confirmation has not happened. “There is bipartisan opposition, so [Reid] hasn’t even tried to bring him to a vote,” says another senior Senate GOP aide. Consider this the | Read More »
David Perdue and a Georgia Runoff
A few weeks ago, Republican Senate candidate David Perdue had a Senate win within his reach with no runoff. Now, it seems the best he can hope for is an overtime victory. Reporters nationally, since the 1970’s, have warned of a demographic tide building, making it more difficult for Republicans to win. Pollsters, statisticians, and others claim that is happening now in Georgia. That is | Read More »
Liberal Website Deadspin Pushes Out a Democrat Lie Against Cory Gardner. Blows Itself Up.
Look, this is just the latest bit of desperation sweat to drip from the Colorado Democrats’ sulfuric pores. The blind partisans at Deadspin crafted a nice narrative but didn’t bother to fact check it. Predictably, every Democrat partisan hack in the state dutifully jumped on the issue and promoted it as if it were their October surprise. Seriously, you can go look at the #cosen | Read More »
John Boehner and Mitch McConnell Need to Lead on Ebola
Barack Obama and his administration are refusing to impose a travel ban from West Africa into the United States. Meanwhile, the CDC is freaking out because a nurse who now has Ebola flew on a commercial jet. A solid majority of Americans want a travel ban from West African countries. There are, in fact, direct flights from those countries to the United States. If Barack | Read More »
New O’Keefe Video: Mark Pryor is Lying about his Marriage Equality Stance
The Arkansas Senate race is one of the closest ones this election season. As a Democrat in a conservative state, incumbent has tried to present himself as a moderate in tune with his state’s more conservative leanings, especially on social issues. He has emphasized repeatedly that he does not support same-sex marriage, but how does he really feel when the cameras and microphones are off? A bombshell | Read More »
The Georgia Senate Polling
No, Michelle Nunn is not suddenly ahead of David Perdue. Truth be told, polling in Georgia is terrible. The bulk of the polling has been done by political consulting shops that are trying to diversify and have suddenly become pollsters. Most all the polling has been bad. Historically, SurveyUSA has been used as an outside pollster and its polling has always managed to capture trends, | Read More »
Been in DC too long, @MaryLandrieu?
U.S. spends approximately all of her time in Washington D.C., which is odd because she is supposed to represent Louisiana. Makes sense that she should live here and not simply claim a home co-owned by her and the rest of her family. Now, when it comes to Louisiana, there are some differences in our civics lessons vs. the rest of the nation’s. For one thing, | Read More »
NC Senator Kay Hagan no longer embarrassed by Bill Clinton
What a difference flopsweat makes. Democrat Senator Kay Hagan is feeling the heat and has enlisted aging horndog and former president Bill Clinton in an effort to stave off defeat: Former President Bill Clinton is coming to North Carolina to help raise money for U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan’s re-election campaign. Clinton was slated to be in Chapel Hill on Tuesday to headline a fundraising luncheon | Read More »
Sen. Mark Udall Has an Honesty Problem
The news continues to be bad for Democrat incumbent Colorado Senator Mark Udall. While knowledge of his arrest for marijuana possession has long been in the public sphere, the few details offered by the embattled Senator have now been challenged by a look back at news reports from the incident. As Senator Mark Udall tells it, he was just cruising around town back in the | Read More »
Colorado Democrats are Stumbling, Beauprez and Gardner are Reaping the Benefits
Colorado’s incumbent Democrat Senator and Governor have not had a good summer. Both are now down in the polls to their Republican challengers, Gardner and Beauprez. While Governor Hickenlooper once again fumbled the gun issue in a recent debate, Senator Udall decided to speak for the beheaded victims of ISIS, offending many Colorado voters, to whom Udall was forced to apologize. Shortly after these events | Read More »
Sen. @KayHagan’s husband directly benefited from the Stimulus she voted for
I miss the good old days. You know, the days where honest, hardworking Democrats tried like hell to keep stories like this hidden until after major election cycles: When Kay Hagan voted for President Barack Obama’s 2009 economic stimulus package, the Democratic senator hailed it as “the best way forward for working families across North Carolina.” One of the families that later benefited is her | Read More »
Clearest Sign Yet the GOP Will Take the Senate: Eric Holder to Resign
Eric Holder is going to resign his position as Attorney General News is just coming across the wire. Holder has been Obama’s friend and companion for six years. He has relentlessly screwed up most everything he has touched. He has overseen a Department of Justice that has been complicit in killing American border patrol agents and covering up abusive government. In the vernacular of the | Read More »
