Martha Zoller: Let’s Get Her To Congress
Georgia’s 9th Congressional District runoff presents the two faces of the Republican Party and asks voters to choose. On one hand is Doug Collins. Collins would fit right in with the Congressional Republicans who raised the debt ceiling on the promise of spending cuts and then weaseled out of the cuts. He’d fit right in with a GOP that gives lip to repealing Obamacare, but | Read More »
Election Day in Wisconsin: Go Vote for Mark Neumann
It’s time Wisconsin. Heck, it has been a long time coming. Today, please go vote for Mark Neumann for the United States Senate. Polls in Wisconsin have the race incredibly close. There is a real chance for Wisconsin to send a man to the Senate who will join Ted Cruz, Richard Mourdock, Deb Fischer, and the conservatives already there to bring back fiscal sanity to | Read More »

Rick Allen for Congress in GA-12
The12th Congressional District of Georgia is routinely cursed with less than stellar candidates for Congress on the Republican side trying to take out John Barrow, the play it safe liberal who has cat like lives. There is a runoff for the 12th District between Rick Allen and Lee Anderson. I’m going with Rick Allen. Naturally, Lee Anderson would have you believe that Allen, a small | Read More »
Blowing Up the “Paul Ryan Will Turn Off Women” Meme
I have always thought it was both vapid and shallow for the left and a whole lot of the supposedly objective media to claim that women voters vote with their uterus, or more specifically whether or not they get to kill kids. All this talk about “Republicans will defund Planned Parenthood so women won’t vote for them” is ridiculous, not borne out in polling, and | Read More »
Michelle Obama Poisons America’s Food Supply. Gives Kids Listeria.
Michelle Obama has poisoned the nation’s food supply and potentially given listeria to America’s children, according to press reports. Food inspectors have discovered listeria in packaged apple slices destined for McDonald’s, Burger King, and various grocery stores. It was Michelle Obama’s push for healthier eating that led fast food restaurants to begin including apple slices in their kids’ meals. Now, you and I may think | Read More »
If Only Paul Ryan’s Plan Were as Radical as the Democrats Claim
“Choice for Republicans involves trusting the American people to handle their affairs and retirement. Choice for Democrats involves only the option to kill children, with everything else pre-packaged in one size fits all government bureaucracy.” It is mathematically indisputable that should President Barack Obama obtain his legislative desire and increase taxes on those making $250,000.00 a year or more the nation would not close even | Read More »
More on the Winning Argument
In USA Today, Instapundit Glenn Reynolds quotes Iowahawk: “Paul Ryan represents Obama’s most horrifying nightmare: Math.” Let me break the math down for you. If Barack Obama gets his way and raises taxes on everyone making $250,000.00 a year or more, the amount of money he brings in will not close his own budget deficit. Nevermind the national debt — he won’t close this year’s | Read More »
Saturday on Twitter, my buddy Tom Crowe summed up what the two Presidential campaigns are all about: So #2012election comes down to GOP: “We trust you.” vs. Dems: “Trust us.” — Tom Crowe (@TomCrowe) August 11, 2012 This should not be a hard sell.
Greater Risk. Greater Reward.
I expected Mitt Romney to pick Bob McDonnell as his running mate. I’ve said repeatedly that my two choices were either Bobby Jindal or Paul Ryan, but I expected Bob McDonnell. I’m delighted I got who I wanted and not who I expected. Paul Ryan is a daring choice. I’ve talked to a lot of Republicans over the weekend and 48 hours after Paul Ryan | Read More »

Just under a month ago, I wrote Of all the people to not be beating up Mitt Romney for his present not quite stellar campaign, I find myself in that position. I’m genuinely not that worried. I am still not worried, but I am getting concerned. This election is trending away from Romney as the economy deteriorates and more Americans believe the economy is getting | Read More »
Paul Ryan: Where Things Stand
Paul Ryan is not a safe pick. In fact, it is a pick that suggests Mitt Romney knows he needs to shift momentum in the race. When the GOP is winning on all the major polling questions of debt, deficit, and economy and still losing overall — the polling can’t all be wrong, including Fox News — the Romney camp needs a new direction and | Read More »
Mitt to Announce Veep Tomorrow [UPDATED]
No offense, but I intend to be sleeping at 9am tomorrow when Mitt Romney makes his Vice Presidential announcement at the USS Wisconsin. The buzz tonight is that it is Paul Ryan (R-WI, HAFA 75%), but none of us will know until the morning. Greta Van Sustren, several people told me, put online that the Secret Service was at Paul Ryan’s home, though the post | Read More »
