But she has been struggling politically at | Read More »
You may remember, in February of this year, the Obama Administration announced $975 million in grants to help states, doctors and hospitals move from paper to computerized record-keeping. That is almost a billion dollars. That’s ok though because, as AP pointed out then via ABC… Studies show electronic medical records help reduce medical errors and improve the quality of patient care. The grant money comes | Read More »
So, Democrat thug Rep. Etheridge offers the typical non-apology apology after footage of him assaulting a young man was posted on youtube. He says he watched the video and in retrospect was wrong. Sort of. Let’s watch the video again so it is fresh on our minds… Now let’s look at Rep. Bob “The Bully” Etheridge’s apology… “I have seen the video posted on several | Read More »
So, let me set the stage: Jennifer Bendery and John McArdle write an article on Roll Call [subscription required] on the the political dynamics of President Clinton being a campaign proxy for President Obama throughout the 2010 cycle. The article does well in explaining were the public and Obama disagree on policy and how Clinton manages to somewhat close that gap. For example… Clinton is | Read More »
Earlier today, while Aaron was combing through his morning emails, one particular email stood out. Folks, Aaron can’t divulge his sources for the picture he was emailed, but he guarantees its authenticity. In the picture you can clearly see Willy Folks, Larry Marchant, Nikki Haley (in the top hat), and Andre Bauer. Clearly there was an inappropriate relationship. Aaron B. Gardner
There are 11 days left until California voters choose who will challenge Barbara Boxer in the fall.
…Let my people go. Via The Hill A swarm of “thousands of bees” gathered outside the White House this morning. I wonder what the other 9 plagues will look like?
After reading this morning’s post from Erick on the CA Sen Rasmussen poll, I checked out the crosstabs and read a few other interesting articles – one of which is a Poll of Tea Partiers. What I read seems to support the theory that the late movement and momentum is in Chuck DeVore’s favor. First point – The Rasmussen crosstabs. Lets take a peek… Chuck | Read More »

Len, as you should know from Moe’s post, is challenging Patrick Leahy as the presumptive GOP Candidate for US Senate here in Vermont. Len Britton is a good guy and I will be supporting him this fall in his run to defeat Patrick Leahy | Read More »
Today over at the Heritage Foundation Blog, The Foundry, Brian Darling begins exploring SCOTUS Nominee Elena Kagan’s rather poor record on 2nd Amendment rights. The issues arise from statements made by Kagan while she was a law clerk for Thurgood Marshall … Kagan, whom President Barack Obama nominated to the high court this week, made the comment to Justice Thurgood Marshall, urging him in a | Read More »
After the SUSA poll came out, Erick and I both wrote in support of Chuck DeVore. I can’t really speak for Erick, but I am sticking with Chuck because I believe he is the right candidate on the issues and the late movement in this race is all going to Chuck DeVore. As the day progressed and the standard arguments fleshed out, I realized that | Read More »
Although the big news has been that Poizner is now within striking distance of Meg Whitman in the CA Gov Republican Primary, I am going to focus on the CA Senate race poll results via SUSA. As I pointed out here (also at my blog), and is now confirmed by SUSA, Chuck DeVore has jumped 5 points in the polls. This positive movement for Chuck | Read More »
I just watched the video of the May 9th ABC 7 News GOP Primary debate and I must say, Chuck DeVore was excellent. Chuck DeVore rose above his opponents in both knowledge possessed and delivery of that understanding to the California Republican primary voters. His detractors should take notice – this primary ain’t over yet. Here are the highlights of the debate showing why I | Read More »
