2012 Election

Mark Steyn on Tuesday’s Election

November 11, 2012

I had been waiting for Mark Steyn’s take on Tuesday’s election.  The author of After America sees America’s problems in their most basic form — our economy is on an unsustainable path and America voted Tuesday to keep trucking down that road.  His point?  We had a chance at a course correction, didn’t take it, [...]

Sal’s 2012 Election Prediction

November 6, 2012

I have a hunch.  I have a hunch that the polls are under-representing the dissatisfaction with the current administration, the lack of enthusiasm for Obama, and the support and enthusiasm for Romney.  Add to that so-called “statisticians” like Nate Silver who muddy the waters even more, and you have most people expecting anything from a narrow to [...]

Ryan’s 2012 Election Prediction

November 5, 2012

It’s almost go-time America!  Tomorrow, there’s a major fork in the road staring at us all.  Neither direction fully solves our problems, but one leads us to the abyss a lot faster.  A President Romney will try to take on the big issues and maybe get us pushed in the right direction.  A re-elected President [...]

My Sandy Experience

November 4, 2012

Well, Hurricane Sandy was one to remember.  The rains came by Monday afternoon at about 4pm.  By 5:30pm the lights were flickering a bit, but my area has underground power lines and I’m a few blocks from a major hospital, so I wasn’t too worried.  By 7:45pm, the lights went off and didn’t come back [...]

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 [...]

How About a Little Optimism!

September 23, 2012

With the polls still tight but consistently leaning Obama’s way, this New York Daily News article puts things into a positive, yet realistic perspective to pump-up the anti-Obama crowd out there.  Enjoy!

Obama Gaffe: “The Private Sector is Doing Fine”

June 9, 2012

In yesterday’s press conference, President Obama made a gaffe that he may never be able to take back: Romney promptly responded that Obama was “out of touch,” and the President quickly clarified his remark.  But given the terrible few months the President has been having and how allegedly brilliant this man is, how could he [...]

Wisconsin Democrats Whining about Voter Suppression

June 5, 2012

I seriously could have posted this story last night — frightened Dems are so predictable.  Which will it be:  voter fraud?  racism?  Diebold at it again?  Dick Cheney’s weather machine?  Ah, how about voter suppression! Some Wisconsin Dems are saying that pro-Walker factions are allegedly telling people who signed the recall petition that they can’t [...]

Romney’s Overall Obama/MSM Strategy a Smart One

May 11, 2012

Romney’s team is getting good at managing the MSM.  Take the recent “bullying” story plaguing the airwaves since yesterday:  the Washington Post ran a massive hit-piece on Romney, timed very well with Obama’s gay marriage endorsement;  a similar blitzkrieg approach was used to destroy past candidates.  The Post had to go back to high school [...]

Obama’s Divisive and Partisan Bin Laden Ad

April 29, 2012

This ad was coming.  I thought it would have emerged later, but then again Obama’s got nothing else to truly run on:  Obama ordered the operation which took out Osama Bin Laden, but would Romney have done so?  Here’s the ad: I have many issues with this ad: Choosing Bill Clinton narrate a Bin Laden-related [...]

Todd Palin Tips Hat to Newt

January 9, 2012

It was reported today that Sarah Palin’s husband Todd spoke with Newt Gingrich this morning, offering his support to the Speaker’s campaign to replace Obama.  Still no word on who Sarah’s going to support.  McCain’s supporting Romney because McCain, for establishmentarian reasons, must.  Sarah will probably go rogue from her former 2008 campaign partner. I [...]

Sal’s Endorsement: Rick Santorum

January 3, 2012

Like Ryan, I am less than thrilled with the 2012 GOP Presidential field.  Four years ago to this very day I endorsed Mitt Romney for President – reluctantly so.  Today, I am as unsure about my choice as I was four years ago.  Throughout this whole campaign, I, along with the rest of the GOP [...]

Ryan’s Endorsement: Newt Gingrich

December 30, 2011

As a long-time conservative recently inspired and motivated by the Tea Party over the past few years, I do not love any of the candidates who have emerged to potentially challenge Barack Obama in next year’s election.  They do not seem to understand the gravity of the problems we face — any endorsement I make [...]

Debbie Wasserman Schultz Entertains on Fox This Morning

December 12, 2011

Here is the DNC chair on Fox this morning trying to spin the Dems potential 2012 message on the economy: I like how Gretchen Carlson stuck to her guns allowing DWS to step in it a few times.  Yet, there is surface truth to DWS’s claim that unemployment has technically dropped from its historic highs [...]

Biden — It’s Our Economy

September 30, 2011

Uh oh!  The gaffe-tastic Vice President Joe Biden has drifted off the reservation once again, this time speaking the truth:  that this economy belongs to the Obama administration and the people have every right to judge them on it going into the 2012 Election. I’m not sure if this is merely a moment of lucidity [...]

Obama 2012: Making His Stand on the Hill of Class Warfare

September 19, 2011

How about soaking $1.5 trillion out of the “rich” in the spirit of “fairness” in order to reduce the deficit and jump start this economy? Silly, right?  Nonetheless, President Obama suggested just that, unveiling his big plan to fix the economy today, drawing the line in the sand and deciding to choose the unabashed class [...]

Romney’s “Bump in the Road” Ad

June 13, 2011

Here’s an ad put out by the Romney campaign which boils down the GOP’s message against reelecting President Obama: The ad is personal, demographically tested, and reflects an uncomfortable reality while demonizing the President’s cavalier attitude towards the plight his policies have created.  While I don’t think Romney’s the best GOP option to get us [...]

Pawlenty Officially Enters the Race

May 23, 2011

We all knew this announcement was coming: Unlike many other candidates already in/out of the GOP hunt, Tim Pawlenty is not flashy, charismatic or a well-known commodity outside the party.  However, he’s articulate, has administrative experience, pretty conservative, and aside from a passing flirtation with cap-and-trade back in the day, has very little baggage that [...]

Newt’s Officially Running for President

May 11, 2011

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has decided to officially put his hat in the ring to unseat President Obama in 2012.  Here’s his announcement video: Just so my fellow conservatives know — I checked and Ronald Reagan is unfortunately still dead and not likely to run in 2012.  Also, I need to see more debates [...]

Schoen and Caddell to Obama: 1 Term is Enough

November 15, 2010

I’ve learned that whenever Dems speak out of step with convention, always read between the lines. Former Clintonista Doug Schoen and recovering Carterite Pat Caddell, both pollsters, have caused quite a stir with their Washington Post op-ed yesterday:  Obama should do the right thing and announce he’s not running in 2012 because they argue he [...]

N’Obama in 2012 is Unrealistic

June 6, 2010

Some believe, including the much-cited article by Peter Ferrara at the American Spectator, that the current political climate surrounding President Obama will ultimately force him to either resign or make him politically unable to run in the 2012 Elections.  Here’s the thought:  Obama’s got the oil spill and the deepening Sestak scandal to deal with, [...]
