What I like about Romney….
This is not an easy post for me to write and actually one I had hoped to avoid. Any regular reader of Red State knows that I am vehemently anti-Obomney (Obama and Romney) primarily because I see so many similarities in the two. I will spare you the detailed reasoning for that statement as it is counterproductive to my purpose here. However with Rick Santorum | Read More »
SAW XXX (2012 Primary)
For conservative’s the 2012 primaries are beginning to resemble another installment of the infamous SAW horror franchise. You wake up in a brightly lit room surrounded by garbage and filth. Your ankle chained to a thick iron pipe. As you scan your surroundings and try and figure out just how you ended up here. You notice a large metal door slightly ajar. You pull on | Read More »
Houston we have a problem!!!!
I think we can all agree this primary season has been a disaster. Our A list chose to sit out the contest or stumbled early committing ‘ritual seppaku’ in full view of the electorate. The remaining candidates are terribly flawed each in his own way and the conservative base is bitterly divided against itself. The ramifications of this are potentially more devastating than we yet | Read More »
Hypocrisy on display?
Alot has been made here at redstate by Romney supporters regarding Rick Santorums introduction of social issues into the campaign. However I wonder how many of these same supporters realize that Mitt Romney ran on a very similar platform? Mitt Romney in 2007 cut a campaign ad called “Ocean,” where he vowed to “clean up the water in which our kids are swimming. I’d like | Read More »
Gingrich / Perry ticket?
According to posts on hotair and fox political blogs Gingrich maybe looking to form a ticket with Perry. Sources close to the Gingrich campaign say preliminary “what-if” conversations are underway that could lead to a Gingrich-Perry ticket being announced prior to the Republican National Convention at the end of August. Gingrich insiders hope forming a predetermined ticket with Perry will unite the evangelical, Tea Party | Read More »
Mitt Romney and the Capitalists of DOOM…..
What an interesting couple of days it has been. The long promised Newtagedon finally arrived when Newt Gingrich dropped a hydrogen bomb on Romney’s electability argument. Attacking directly Mitt Romeny’s tenure at Bain Capitol. Reinforced by Rick Perry’s attack’s on Romney’s character, the conservative world has exploded. The talking heads at Faux News have roundly condemned Rick Perry with Meagan Kelly calling his attacks “dishonest | Read More »
One of the leading debates of this primary cycle has been whether or not Mitt Romney is actually a conservative. You here from supporters of Perry, Newt and Santorum daily the sins of Willard’s past that disqualifes Mitt as a conservative. This is then attacked by his faithful supporters and the fur fly’s. So I have an idea that perhaps will actually bring some closure | Read More »
My email to Governor Perry
Governor, In moments like these we find out a lot about ourselves. It is truly our failures that teach us character. It is in defeat that we learn determination. Iowa was a failure to be sure. The question now is how do we move forward? You can certainly choose to end your campaign, no one would blame you. In fact many expect you to and | Read More »
