Even in Bi-Partisan Deal, Obama Botches it with Ego
The campaign is over. Barack Obama has already won the last election he will ever run. Why, then, did he use his speech about the potential for a fiscal cliff deal to take jabs at Congress in general and the Republicans in particular?
There Are Only Two Possibilities: Either the President was Incompetent or he Intentionally Misled America
There’s simply no way around it now. The Obama administration was aware early on that there were heavy weapons used and had no indication that the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneous protests gone awry. According to accounts provided by intelligence officials listening to the testimony of former CIA Director David Petraeus, “the CIA concluded early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack by definition, because | Read More »
The Two Stages of Obamacare Layoffs
…and so it begins. Reports are starting to flow in of employers laying off or planning to lay off employees. The mathematics behind ObamaCare is seen by many to be cost-prohibitive for business growth. For others, it’s downright dangerous and could cause businesses to shut down entirely. Las Vegas CEO Reportedly Fired 22 Workers Because Of Obama’s Reelection Applebee’s CEO Threatens To Fire Employees And | Read More »
Most Americans Seem Okay with Raising Taxes as Long as it’s Not Their Taxes
There seems to be a growing sentiment in the population that taxes are okay. The thought of raising taxes on the rich is arguably one of the primary reasons President Obama won re-election. Today’s America tends to accept an anti-business, semi-socialist mentality of redistribution of wealth in a way that is truly terrifying. Buzzwords like “fair share” filled the campaign and apparently made sense to | Read More »
The Most Important Debate of Our Generation is Coming Up
Some would argue that Mitt Romney’s victory over President Obama in the first presidential debate was the defining moment of the campaign, the point at which swing voters realized that their personal goals could most easily be achieved under Romney. Others will say that the final debate will be the one that sticks in voters’ minds or that foreign policy is a key separator between | Read More »
Romney should Trade: “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours”
I heard an interesting concept that makes perfect sense. It comes from Wayne Root: Mitt Romney should offer to show everything: school records, tax returns, and medical records. He should do this in exchange for the President doing the same thing. It has been speculated by some that the President is unwilling to show his college and medical records because they may show statuses that | Read More »
It’s Not Insane to Think Mitt Romney Should Drop Out
The calls today from conservatives across the country will be for Newt Gingrich to drop out. They’re right. His ship with the leaky hull officially sank yesterday by failing to win in the area of the country where he still had a chance. It’s time to move out of the way for the sake of the country. What won’t be discussed is the impossible dream | Read More »
Dear Newt: Convince Us You can Win Or Get Out of the Way
Since the debates prior to South Carolina, I’ve been supporting Newt Gingrich. Florida came as a huge blow and a wake up call that the Republican Establishment was simply unwilling to put someone with his history as their champion. They believe that the Dole/McCain moderate strategy is finally going to work. They’re wrong. The challenge isn’t necessarily with Romney. He can be defeated. The challenge | Read More »
Did the Social Media Boat Set Sail Without @RickSantorum and @NewtGingrich?
While researching an article on how poorly Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich have done on social media, one of the primary tools that I believe they haven’t used is the blogosphere. I referenced Red State as one of the few places that both candidates have addressed, but even then it’s clear that they are coming to this site too late. They should have been posting | Read More »
Drilling in America Should Not Be A Left-vs-Right Issue: Just Do It
On the left, drilling is viewed as an abomination against mother nature, an unsafe and damaging road that will hurt the environment and put peoples’ lives at risk. On the right, it is viewed as the only way to keep gas prices low and reduce the country’s dependence on other countries to survive. Both sides are right and wrong from a certain perspective, but that’s | Read More »
Is Cain’s New “Sick of Stimulus” Video Too Over the Top to get the Message Right?
Most Republicans (and some Democrats) were against past and future government stimulus package. Former GOP candidate Herman Cain is one of those who have been critical of the Bush and Obama stimulus packages, but his new website and first video from it may earn them a call from PETA, let alone others who might see it as “over the top.”
Pennsylvania is the Key to Getting the White House
The Republican Establishment is dead-set on Mitt Romney. They have the brainpower and the research investments to come to a proper conclusion in situations like these. That’s at least what we’re told.
Conservatives Stuck in Political Limbo Over Romney
For many conservatives who have supported “anybody but Romney or Paul” for the last several months, their most recent champion’s fall in Michigan will have them wondering if Republicans are better off voting for Mitt Romney. Rick Santorum put up a valiant fight that nearly led to the major upset, but in the end Romney’s money and the perception that he’s more electable prevailed.
