Dem U.S. Senate Candidate Tried to Block Funding for Body Armor
As a congresswoman, Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) backed legislation to block funding for body armor and medical supplies for U.S. troops. The current Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate co-sponsored legislation in every session of Congress from 2003 until 2009 to allow taxpayers opposed to the military, Department of Defense, and various intelligence agencies to withhold their tax dollars from being spent in support of those entities. | Read More »
Nobody Messes With Joe Biden (Except Iran & Muslim Terrorists)
The Vice President of the United States was allowed in public yesterday. His face frozen by multiple injections of Botox, his eyes rapidly blinking like one just released from a darkened room and into the light after months of seclusion, and his scalp covered with freshly planted artificial hair, Mr. Biden is the living embodiment of dishonesty and falsehood. His interview on Meet The Press | Read More »
Crossing Over To The Dark Side: How I Became A Conservative Republican
Note: This three-part series originally appeared on my blog Zoominac.com on January 14-16, 2009 (Part I, Part II, Part III). I wanted to include this on my RS blog to give my readers a more personal sense of my own political journey. Part I I think the most lacking part of political discourse is that people don’t explain what principles they stand for and why. Sure, | Read More »
Pelosi Travels to Iraq, Rewrites History
Nancy Pelosi made a surprise trip to Baghdad yesterday. And according to Alsumaria, she tried to rewrite the history of the debate over the U.S. role in Iraq: “The SOFA agreement is one that agreed between our two countries and as many of you know, I’m very opposed to the initiation of hostilities in Iraq and to this war in general. But when … once | Read More »
Defense Secretary Robert Gates: Change You Can Believe In?
Seriously? President-elect Obama is keeping Robert Gates as the Secretary of Defense. How are you feeling moveon.org? Do you really think it was a good idea to overthrow Hillary in the primary now? “Change you can believe in” has transformed into some sort of television show plot twist. “Don’t miss the next all-new press conference from President-elect Obama. A former rival will make a dramatic | Read More »
Proud American … Still. Always.
This country is the best place on earth for so many reasons, but one of my favorites is that the strength of our people will always persevere through anything that the world may throw at us. Terrorist attacks? We’ll come back stronger. Recession? We’ll build a better economy. War? We’ll win and live on. Nothing is going to stop this country from being the best | Read More »
Why the Democrats need to win.
While watching the Sunday talk shows today, it suddenly became very clear to me why the Democrats need to win this election. First, we are finally winning in Iraq. That is unacceptable. We need to immediately pull the troops out so that we can send them into Darfur, Afghanistan and Pakistan, to rebuild those countries and create Democracies there. We simply chose the wrong war. | Read More »
The Atlantic article “The Wars of John McCain” is actually worth reading
From the Atlantic’s lack of editorial judgment in providing a platform for Andrew Sullivan’s vile rants and its hiring Jill Greenberg to shoot the accompanying magazine cover photograph of Senator John McCain, I expected the Atlantic article “The Wars of John McCain” would be an anti-McCain hit piece. Instead, the article was surprisingly good, aside from the assertion that the Swift Boat Veterans [and POWs] | Read More »
20/20 Hindsight Can Be Rather Hazy For Lazy Minds
I don’t really mean for the title to sound as insulting as it may but please stick with me… I periodically come across conversations among coworkers, bloggers, and radio personalities where hindsight on Iraq is interpreted as so crystal clear that we should have originally gone in with 250 or 450 thousand troops or that, if President Bush had only listened to certain individuals, a | Read More »
And This Debate is OVER
ormer congressman and Colorado Republican Senate candidate Bob Schaffer had a debate with congressman and Democrat Senate candidate Mark Udall this past week. I was unable to attend, but there was quite a lively crowd. Mark Udall was blindsided by Bob Schaffer during the debate with his response to a question from the channel 9 News moderator. This is one that’s best seen, rather than | Read More »
A Winning Strategy for Republicans…Umm…Wait…
OK…So, We’re a month away from the Republican Convention and here’s my take on where we are! Gas is over $4.00 a gallon and I’m paying $65 dollars to fill up my Mercury Villager, (It’s a Mini Van. Forget buying a tin can that get’s 40 mpg since I have a wife and 3 kids). I’m reading polls approaching 70 % of the American People | Read More »
