RedState's Dear Leader.


    Huntsman & Foreign Affairs

    Someone just put this on YouTube:I guess they are going to try to make the case that I was for Huntsman before I was against him. Actually no, both prior to and after that I dismissed him as a candidate, but I stand by the statement.Foreign policy is going to be a huge issue and by virtue of being an ambassador, Huntsman will have a | Read More »

    The Huntsman Team Responds With Obamaton Precision

    It is stunning that Jon Huntsman is going to run against Barack Obama when, in responding to me, his campaign behaves exactly as someone close to Obama, or at least close to the left, would. They cite Media Matters and, in the process, defend Obamacare. Not kidding. Someone close to Huntsman tells Ben Smith Ironic that someone who suggested sending President Obama to the death | Read More »

    Herman Cain Joins Me On the Radio #EERS

    Craig Becker is a Natural Fit in a Socialist Administration

    Last night in the Luntz panel after the Fox debate, Luntz seemed taken aback that his panel of voters largely viewed the Obama Administration as socialist.Only effete intellectuals keen on nuancing socialism could disagree at this point. As socialism is commonly understood, i.e. spreading the wealth around through government intervention, Barack Obama is a socialist and his administration is a socialist administration.So it is no | Read More »

    More House Republican Amateurishness

    Geez. They showed up to work this week after a bunch of time off and Mike Flynn over at Big Government notes the House GOP failed to do one thing they very much should have was no surprise that the United States Senate took time on Tuesday to honor these men and women by discussing and passing a resolution expressing the nation’s thanks for | Read More »


    It’s Not Just Amateur Hour at the White House

    There are two stories out today that suggest it is not just amateur hour at the White House where five days after Osama Bin Laden went to sleep with Davy Jones there are still more questions than answers. No, it is also amateur hour in the House of Representatives. Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI) is declaring the fight to repeal Obamacare over. That’s right. He’s giving | Read More »

    An Interesting Coincidence?

    A week ago, the Wall Street Journal ran a big story about major hedge fund managers jumping to the GOP from Barack Obama. One of the big jumpers is Steve Cohen. Business Insider notes Cohen … has “previously been a big Democratic supporter, regularly giving the maximum allowable to Democratic legislators in his home state of Connecticut,” and spent $500,000 on Democrats in 2008. But | Read More »

    Show Us The Budget, Senator Conrad

    Senator Kent Conrad is about to release the Senate Democrats’ budget. What we know so far is that Senate Democrats are aghast at what might be in it.Now, I can’t actually tell you what is in Senator Conrad’s budget because only Senate Democrats have actually seen it. It is not released to the public. Even Senate Republicans have not seen it.Based on what Senator Conrad | Read More »

    Yet Again Politifact Shows Itself to be Leftist Propaganda Masquerading as an Agent of Truth

    Politifact continues to masquerade as an agent of truth when it is, in fact, a mouthpiece for the left. It took great pains to slowly establish itself as something resembling a ref on a field, but once that reputation was established it has gone out of its way to peddle lefty talking points.Consider it labeling as “a lie” the accurate Republican claim that the Democrats | Read More »
