School Prayer Shelved In FL, Where’s the Outrage?

    By Tom Tillison Florida Political Press A bill to permit school prayers at sporting events and graduation ceremonies was temporarily postponed in the Florida Senate on Tuesday. The Anti-Defamation League and the ACLU, the usual suspects, said the bill could violate federal and state constitutional prohibitions of the endorsement of religion by schools.

    Tim Kaine running for VA-SEN, because God loves me.

    Jim Geraghty has the report. And it is my devout hope that Tim Kaine brings the same competence and drive to the upcoming Senate election in Virginia that Tim Kaine previously brought to the Chris Christie, Bob McDonnell, Scott Brown, Martha Roby, Mo Brooks, Rick Crawford, Tim Griffin, Steve Womack, Paul Gosar, Ben Quayle, David Schweikert, Jeff Denham, Scott Tipton, Cory Gardner, Steve Southerland, Rich | Read More »

    Senate Wants to Punt Constitutional Duty to Advise and Consent

    Does anyone in Washington understand the concept of reading your job description and then doing your job? Apparently the esteemed members of the U.S. Senate – including both Republican and Democrat leadership – do not. You see, they would rather have time to meddle further in the lives of Americans than in performing their constitutionally prescribed duty to advise and consent to Presidential nominees.

    We Need Conservative Leaders Like Josh Mandel in the Senate

    Yesterday, The Columbus Dispatch reported that Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel is leaning towards a run for Senate in 2012.  Josh Mandel is precisely the person to take out left-wing kook and famed Nazi hunter, Sherrod Brown.  We need Josh in the Senate. Conservatives worked assiduously in 2012 to elect Republicans who would not only oppose Obama’s proposals, but would also stem the tide of 80 | Read More »

    ClaireAir Crash Lands in Missouri

    Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill reminds me of the Seinfeld episode “The Opposite“, where George decides that in order to succeed, he must do the opposite of every instinct he ever had.  For years now, just like George Castanza, Claire McCaskill has said one thing and done the opposite.  Missouri GOP executive director Lloyd Smith notes: “Time after time, Missourians have watched as Claire McCaskill says | Read More »

    We as a people own our leadership’s decisions too

    I have a friend who blogs the scripture behind a Bible study he wrote on pride. Today’s entry, while short and found here makes those who are governed just as accountable for the failures of their leaders as the leaders are for their own failures. Given the current Republican leadership decisions that are appearing to once again head down the path of failure, I thought | Read More »

    Joe Manchin: The Cowardly Faux Moderate

    Perhaps no politician is more willing to engage in political acrobatics than Joe Manchin.  There is no degree to which he will not contort his political statements and ideological alignment in order to obtain and retain power in West Virginia.  Manchin aired an infamous TV ad depicting himself taking aim at the cap and trade bill while campaigning to join the anti-gun, pro-‘cap and trade’ | Read More »

    Now is the Time to Pass an ANWR Bill

    In 1995, the Republican-controlled House and Senate passed a balanced budget act, which contained a provision to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) for oil drilling and exploration.  On December 6th of that year, President Bill Clinton vetoed the bill, ensuring that not a drop of oil would be extracted from the barren land of this 20 million acre area.  We have literally been | Read More »
