VMI speech, 10/08/2012: Mitt Romney will promise to arm Syrian rebels, if elected.
From the text of his prepared remarks: In Syria, I will work with our partners to identify and organize those members of the opposition who share our values and ensure they obtain the arms they need to defeat Assad’s tanks, helicopters, and fighter jets. Iran is sending arms to Assad because they know his downfall would be a strategic defeat for them. We should be | Read More »
Welcome to the new Media paradigm, Mister Gibbs.
It’s one where you get interrupted when you try to spin the stupid things that your candidates say. For those without video, it shows: George Stephanopoulos (!) playing a clip of Joe Biden’s infamous ‘buried’ gaffe*; asking Robert Gibbs whether gaffes like this will hurt the Vice President in his upcoming debate with Paul Ryan**; and stopping Gibbs cold when Gibbs tried to claim that | Read More »
“The Dinner Table.”
No spoken dialog in this ad. No spoken dialog needed, either. This is where we are, right now. And this is where we’re going to stay, because the people running things right now don’t think that they need to change. Mitt Romney for President.
SECRET ROMNEY CHEAT SHEET REVEALED! MUST CREDIT REDSTATE!
I will admit, when I first saw this superficially insipidly stupid report ‘accusing’ Mitt Romney of being able to fit everything he needed to gut Barack Obama like a fish in Wednesday’s debate on a single sheet of paper (a so-called “cheat sheet”), my first thought was Wow. That’s incredibly insulting… to Barack Obama; surely you’d need at least an eight-page chapbook. But, once I | Read More »
Joe Biden touts the fiscally progressive ideals of his Delaware homeland.
While I understand that it’s absolutely fascinating to watch Joe Biden campaign on the unique message Let’s have a trillion dollar tax hike! BIDEN: “On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask – yes – we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more. My heart breaks, come on man. You know the phrase they always use? | Read More »
We won the debate; now, let’s move on to the next thing.
So, I had the opportunity to talk with Senator Marco Rubio last night, and ask him a question. I’ll spare you the verbal tics and whatnot: what I asked Rubio, effectively, was “What advice did the Romney campaign take heed off, out of all of New Media’s unsolicited offerings along those lines?” This is how Rubio responded: Rubio 10/03/2012 The funny part was: at the | Read More »
What the Obamaphone Woman Video ACTUALLY teaches us.
So, via Erick I see that the Atlantic is having a tizzy – or possibly an episode – over this Obamaphone Woman video… Oh, dear: wrong video. Can’t imagine how that got in there. Here’s the real one.
Obama: ‘protecting’ American lady-parts. Egyptian ones? …Well, not so much.
Let’s connect the dots: One. This is from the official Tumblr of the Obama re-election campaign (click it fast, because it won’t be there soon): [UPDATE: Well, that was fast.] Two. We are giving aid to Egypt. Which is to say, we are giving Egypt $450 million of your tax money. Three. Egypt, of course, is run by the Muslim Brotherhood. This is what | Read More »
RS Interview: Vernon Parker (R CAND, AZ-09).
Arizona’s Ninth District is a new one created because of redistricting, and it’s shaping up to be one of the interesting races* this cycle: not least of which is because the Democrat tapped for it is, well, nuts. I spoke with Vernon Parker – the non-crazy one – about the race: Vernon’s site is here. Moe Lane (crosspost) *Also possibly one of the nastier ones, | Read More »
RS Interview: Jeff Landry (R, R-CAND, LA-03).
This one is a little late, thanks to various annoying, yet dull, technical difficulties. The race in question is Louisiana’s Third District: the loss of a House seat in redistricting has caused two incumbent Republican Congressmen to face each other in this November’s… “Election Day primary” is probably the best way to describe it: everybody runs at once, and if no candidate gets above 50% | Read More »
New Heritage video: “Our Choice.”
Heritage has a new video up on school choice (short version: they like it, and so should you):
A look at the horrific, graphic Univision Fast & Furious excerpt.
The below is not the entire Univision Operation Fast & Furious expose: it’s merely about ten minutes of it. Ten very graphic, very infuriating, and very embarrassing ten minutes of it. Don’t watch it if you have a physical/mental problem with seeing people being murdered on-screen, and for real: (see also this ABC article) It’s a useful primer for what happened: which is to say, | Read More »
Washington Post recounts assassination of Ambassador Stevens.
You know, you read this Washington Post article on the assassination of Ambassador Stevens, and you keep telling yourself This movie is completely unbelievable. On the eve of his death, U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was ebullient as he returned for the first time in his new role to Benghazi, the eastern Libyan city that embraced him as a savior during last year’s civil war. | Read More »
More details about tomorrow’s Univision expose of Operation Fast & Furious.
I’ve looked at that second paragraph three times and I don’t know which is the worst revelation. That the Obama administration enabled the murder of innocent children? That it indirectly participated in a targeted assassination of the family of a Mexican law enforcement official? That it’s going to be pointed out that the Obama administration was in full Ugly American mode when it came to the Mexican government? Or that our actions emboldened Mexican narco-terrorists to continue their destabilization campaign against our southern neighbor? Any one of those would be a scandal; taken collectively, and you have to wonder just how many more people have to die before Barack Obama and Eric Holder will take any kind of accountability for their actions.

Rep. Ed Perlmutter’s (D, CO-07) INCOMPETENT, xenophobic race-baiting.
Here’s a quick question: what do you see, when you see this picture? There are two answers. (Via Colorado Observer) If you’re a regular person, you see Eun Cha, war veteran, businessman, and naturalized citizen. This is one of those guys who we’re thinking about when we talk about the American Dream, and how it can transform people’s lives; Mr. Cha emigrated to this country | Read More »
