2010 Election

Two (Possibly Nonsensical) Observations on SCOTUS and Romney

April 4, 2012

Two things dawned on me that I think no one’s really talking about (possibly because they may make little sense): First, what if Obama did get a tip from someone about how the Supreme Court is going to rule on Obamacare?  His actions of late indicate that he knows it doesn’t look good.  But, what [...]

House Passes Obama Care Repeal

January 19, 2011

The vote was 245 to 189 — every Republican and three Democrats just voted to repeal the Obama Care monstrosity.  In contrast, the vote to pass Obama Care last year was 219-212, with no Republican support and with over thirty Democrats voting against its passage. Given Harry Reid’s dominion over the Senate and with Obama [...]

The Story of 2010

December 31, 2010

2010 seems to have flown by, but for many reasons I’m glad it’s just about gone.  As far as pinpointing the Story of the Year, I’m pretty sure the general consensus would be the President signing Obama Care into law for its contemporary weight and future implications. After the failed near trillion dollar stimulus coupled [...]

Omnibus Disaster Looms

December 14, 2010

Just when you thought the 2010 Election made your wallet a little more safe, there’s a new 1924-page spending bill lurking in the lame duck Congress, ready to pounce upon the Senate.  Why the rush?  Well, this Saturday the federal government will shutdown if not funded through the end of the fiscal year (part of [...]

Voting Like It’s 1773!

November 1, 2010

Tomorrow is Election Day and I’m an enthused voter!  It’s the only poll that really counts, and one that you can truly affect! Here’s a prediction:  if the Republicans pick up less than 50 seats, I’ll be disappointed — a message needs to be sent.  I also think that the Senate will end up 53-47 [...]

Nicky, Meg, Jerry and the Future of California

October 3, 2010

At the second California gubernatorial debate between Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown, the issue of illegal alien housekeeper Nicky Diaz came up early and often.  Since Univision sponsored the debate, Whitman should have known this was coming and should have prepared for Jerry Brown to tie every single issue he could back to it. As [...]

Paul Ryan’s “Two Futures”

February 2, 2010

Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan is a budget wizard.  You don’t mess with him.  As the ranking member of the House Budget Committee, he’s got the numbers, the intellect and the talent to flatten many opponents.  In a way he’s the 2000s version of Jon Kasich, who back in the 1990s was the major contributor to [...]

New Democrat Strategy — Divide Republicans

January 26, 2010

We already know that one 2010 Democrat strategy is to blame Bush for everything, even though the Dems have had more power to yield this past year than any President/Congress combo since the Great Society.  Yet, a memo released today also indicates another prong in the Democrat attack:  divide Republicans ideologically between the weak-kneed moderate [...]

A Warning from Peggy Noonan

January 8, 2010

We could all sense over the last year or two that Peggy Noonan has wandered a bit from the reservation.  She caught a touch of Obama fever a year ago and began sounding like the perfect example of the kind of Republican who was getting ready to drift in the glorious minority for a generation [...]

2010 Optimism Unclear

July 15, 2009

It’s early, but our government is staunchly liberal and the public’s patience is wearing thin with the Democrat’s bald-faced tax-and-spend impulse.  Being intellectually honest with myself, I have to ask:  is the conservative optimism out there simply an emotional response against a dangerous government’s increasingly unpopular policies or is there evidence, both historical and otherwise substantive, that [...]
