RedState's Dear Leader.


    Last Night, President Obama Sowed the Seeds of His Own Destruction

    Consider, objectively, some of the points of Barack Obama’s plan.He wants to extend unemployment benefits again. He wants to extend a payroll tax holiday. He wants to give tax credits to small businesses to hire people. He wants more government pork for more roads and bridges.These are all things Republicans have gone along with in the past.

    I’ll be on radio breaking down this ridiculous farce tonight

    I’ll be on the radio tonight starting at 9pm to break down this ridiculous farce of a speech. You can listen live at and call in to vent at 1-800-WSB-TALK.Consider this an open thread.

    The Obligatory Word Cloud For Tired Old Rhetoric

    This speech sounds pretty much exactly like all his other failed speeches. Pretty much every job he talks about, just like in 2009, 2010, and 2011 are government jobs or jobs dependent on government.The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple: to put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working. It will create more jobs | Read More »

    All You Need To Know About the President’s Speech

    (1) The President will take Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO with him to Congress tonight. Trumka’s union saw 500 of its members storm a business last night, take hostages, and destroy property. The President will also take Jeffrey Immelt of GE with him. General Electric is a prime example of a business that has profited lately not through the free market, but through the government | Read More »

    Alarm Bells at the White House Over David Weprin’s Race in NY-9

    Unlike the other New York special election races where the Democrats batted a thousand and the media covered them as prognosticators of doom and gloom for the GOP, there’s been radio silence for the most part on the special election to replace Anthony Weiner in NY-9.But there are alarm bells going on at the White House and the DNC. The DCCC just dropped a half-million | Read More »

    The Horserace for September 8, 2011

    Mitt Romney won the NBC-Politico debate on points and Newt Gingrich won on rhetoric. But Rick Perry held his own and, consequently, locks in front runner status for now. If, however, Perry can’t improve his debate performances, he may be a short-lived front runner.Michele Bachmann is fading from view. Newt Gingrich reminds us he is a good debater. Even the folks on MSNBC say Jon | Read More »


    Deja Vu All Over Again: The White House Talking Points for the Speech

    The White House has begun sending out talking points on Stimulus II to left wing groups. I’ve obtained a copy. I think we need Bill Murray to speak tonight, because I feel like I’m living in Ground Hog’s Day.The American Jobs Act is:based on bi-partisan ideas;it is fully paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes and asking the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share; | Read More »


    I realize we’re all supposed to be in the tank for Mitt Romney, but when the heck did we suddenly love social security? It’s nuts.We’ve got Karl Rove out denying it is a ponzi scheme solely because he hates Rick Perry. It’s all politics, not principle.Mitt Romney says that millions of Americans being dependent on government for their retirement is the definition of a successful | Read More »

    Perry vs. Romney

    Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. I gave MSNBC ratings. But in doing so I can say this is a two man race — Perry vs. Romney. It is also clear in this first debate that Perry is the front runner now. I would still prefer to have a few more debates on this before declaring it, but below I’ll explain why it is | Read More »

    The Flags for Bureaucrats Act

    Congress will soon take up the “Civilian Service Recognition Act of 2011″, an act to make military service to our country no more significant than stamping a passport. Conservatives should oppose it.Under the Civilian Service Recognition Act of 2011, it will no longer just be the bereaved families of soldiers killed in action who get the flag properly folded in grateful recognition for their service | Read More »


    “[A]t some point, Sarah Palin has to take some responsibility for her supporters as Ron Paul must for his. Palin’s dragging out the tease on her decision has compounded the problem and we’ve reached a breaking point.”On Fox News, Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham had the best discussion on Sarah Palin I have seen. And Ann said something I have said. But I have not | Read More »

    Job Creation vs. Career Politician: The Romney Path to Victory

    “Romney has the money and manpower to walk this tight rope carefully. If he pulls it off, he is going to be a far better general election candidate than even Romney supporters can imagine.”I have written that I thought the better attack for Mitt Romney would be to go after Rick Perry for being a career politician rather than try to discredit, as the Democrats | Read More »
