Collectivist Trick or Treating

October 31, 2012

Except for our friends in New Jersey, where I think Ryan is still without power, tonight is Halloween.  That means kids will be going door-to-door to collect candy from their neighbors.  On the surface, it sounds like a perfect day to train our little ones to be liberal, what with the going around with your [...]

George Will on the Perils of Our Entitlement Culture

October 29, 2012

Occasionally, staunch Republican establishment-types like George Will get it right.  In his latest OpEd, Will makes the case that our entitlement culture is out of control because it is essentially “mugging” our descendants to pay for the debts we compile now.  In fact, he blames both parties, particularly those Republican administrations after the Great Society [...]

Here Comes Sandy!

October 28, 2012

Hurricane Sandy is forecast to nail the Jersey Shore sometime tomorrow night.  As you can imagine, the supermarket shelves are bare, many stores are closed, and a general sense of excited panic has gripped the Garden State.  Governor Christie is on TV every few hours telling us to use common sense and not to be [...]

Movie Review — Cloud Atlas

October 27, 2012

The buzz over the film Cloud Atlas is that you will have a love-hate attitude towards this book-to-film adaptation by the Wachowski’s (the brain children of the Matrix).  Some even considered the source book “unfilmable.”  Nonetheless, Cloud Atlas has an all-star cast and seems to have a novel and ambitious plot line.  So, I had [...]

Hey Lena Dunham, If This Is Where Your Head Is At, Maybe It’s Better to Wait

October 26, 2012

Maybe it’s my love of cringe and shock comedy, but I’m not really as offended by the latest Obama for America ad as many conservatives in the blogosphere.  I suppose I should be a bit more troubled; after all, the fact that propaganda arm of the most powerful man in the world thought it would [...]

Dueling “Surprises” Fall Flat

October 25, 2012

Obama shill and liberal hack Gloria Allred has done her best to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney in the run-up to November 6. Unfortunately for her a few things got in the way:  1) Mitt Romney’s squeaky clean, and 2) the apparent dirt is an 18-year-old charge which first appeared in Mitt’s 1994 run [...]

The Final Presidential Debate of 2012

October 23, 2012

The final Presidential Debate of the 2012 election season took place last night.  The topic was foreign policy and the affair was moderated by Bob Schieffer of CBS News. Honestly, I didn’t watch it (I was a bit under the weather and barely made it through the Monday Night Football kickoff), nor have I watched [...]

Polls I Like are Professional Because I Like Them; Polls You Like Are Unprofessional Because You Like Them

October 22, 2012

It’s that maddening time of year when about 312 political polls a day are released.  Although a properly conducted poll can be a useful tool to gauge the mood of the electorate at a specific point in time, most of those who think they follow political news closely usually react depending on the results they [...]

It’s Getting Late in October… Get Ready for a Surprise!

October 20, 2012

The October Surprise:  sudden game-changing event or charge which occurs so close to an election that the targeted candidate doesn’t have time to respond, and therefore changes the election’s dynamic within days of voting.  It’s a real d-bag move, no matter which side is doing it. Today is October 20, seventeen days left until we [...]

Romney Gets Laughs at Al Smith Dinner

October 19, 2012

Last night was the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner where both Romney and Obama showed up to roast themselves and each other a bit and cheer the Foundation.  Knowing that the candidates don’t write their own material, delivery is key.  Romney was great — I even laughed out loud a few times!  Here was [...]

Clinton Hits Obama Record at Campaign Event

October 18, 2012

Campaigning for Romney Obama with Bruce Springsteen in Ohio today, Bill Clinton said this: Here’s the text, just in case you needed to experience that in another medium: Governor Romney’s argument is ‘we’re not fixed, so fire him and put me in.’ It is true, we’re not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes [...]

The Town Hall Debate Toss-up

October 17, 2012

Last night, President Obama and Governor Romney faced off in their second Presidential debate.  This town hall-style debate format was moderated by CNN’s Candy Crowley and featured questions she selected from Gallup’s idea of “uncommitted voters.“  When it was over both sides seemed to have accomplished their goals:  no sluggish Obama and Romney held serve. [...]

Second Presidential Debate Preview

October 15, 2012

Regarding tomorrow night’s second Presidential debate, the headlines in the MSM are likely already written : “Obama’s Big Comeback!” or something like that.  Obama’s first debate performance was so awful based on expectations that anything is apt to be an improvement.  They’ll talk about how Obama connected with the people much better than Romney in [...]

Ryan Battles Biden Laughs on Way to VP Debate Draw

October 12, 2012

Last night’s Vice Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan turned out to be an inkblot debate — when people with a political inclination watched it, they pretty much saw what they wanted to see:  Biden was strong and aggressive… or was he inappropriately arrogant and rude?  Ryan was articulate and competent… or was [...]

Biden vs. Ryan Preview

October 11, 2012

Honestly, I’m not sure what to expect in tonight’s Vice Presidential debate in Danville, Kentucky, between Paul Ryan and Joe Biden.  I suppose Joe Biden was coached all week to avoid gaffes, and take the fight to Ryan.  I suppose Ryan worked on beating back Biden’s inevitable accusations while not coming off as too wonkish. [...]

Benghazi-gate Hearings: “I Want to Know Why We were Lied To”

October 10, 2012

The House Oversight Committee heard testimony today about the September 11th debacle in Benghazi.  The Blaze has robust coverage of the details, so check out their links and timeline including Rep. Trey Gowdy’s warranted outrage which includes this post’s title quote. How’d we get here?  Four Americans died on September 11 as a result of [...]

Obama Team — Denied by Big Bird

October 9, 2012

The Obama team rolled out a new campaign ad which features (no joke) Big Bird: Wow.  Terrible use of sarcasm, silly imagery, and most shockingly this amateur-style ad actually has the President endorsing it.  Plus, Sesame Workshop has asked for the ad to be pulled since Big Bird is non-partisan. How weak can one possibly [...]

Romney on Foreign Policy

October 8, 2012

Giving a major foreign policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute today, Mitt Romney took it to President Obama, saying amongst other things that “Hope is not a strategy” while calling Obama out on the 9/11 Libya attack and Obama’s foreign policy drift. Predictably, the Obamabots in the MSM immediately panned it, calling it vague.  [...]

Surprise! Unemployment Drops to 7.8%

October 5, 2012

This morning the Bureau of Labor Statistics released their numbers showing a drop in the unemployment rate to 7.8% for the month of September.  The U6 figure, however stayed put at 14.7%.  Given the data that BLS released, many are shocked by the numbers.  Some say that they don’t make sense, while some go further [...]

Romney Rocks the First Debate

October 4, 2012

I hope you had a chance to watch last night’s Presidential Debate because personally I thought it was awesome!  The candidates both came prepared, both are good on the stump, and both outlined a stark contrast about how they would deal with the issues facing America today.  Plus, the debate’s format both encouraged a conversation [...]

Obama’s “Take the Bullet Out” Speech

October 2, 2012

Here’s a nine-minute clip of then Senator Obama in 2007 at Hampton University.  In this “Take the Bullet Out” speech, Obama’s pretty feisty and very different than the polished public celebrity we all know: The buzz is that the whole video apparently lasts forty minutes, some of which may be aired tonight and likely dominate [...]
