Elbert Guillory’s Party Switch

June 23, 2013

I know the story of Louisiana State Senator Elbert Guillory’s transition from the Democrat “plantation” to the Republican Party is old news this week, but I still wanted to add it to the echo chamber: Unfortunately, the GOP Establishment wants to get in the Democrat demographic dependency game and open its own ill-fated “plantation” with [...]

Bad Day for O: Bill Clinton and Unemployment Sting

June 1, 2012

Anti-growth, over-regulated government engineering and fear-mongering doesn’t work in a free market system — it never has over the long-run.  Keeping the business community wondering what’s going to happen next also doesn’t help. As such, unemployment rose to in May to 8.2%, with the U6 underemployment figure moving up to 14.8%, reinforcing that the economy’s [...]

“Gentry Liberalism” Exposed

July 18, 2011

Here’s an article I read today which exposes what the author calls “gentry liberalism”:  the movement over the last 40 years of the Democrat Party away from the regular guy towards specific corporate interests.  The date bears this out — in a period of Democrat political dominance Wall Street has done very well, while Main [...]

Unions Strike Back, Dems Take Sides

February 22, 2011

We all know that through their proxies in the Democrat Party the public employee unions have halted legislative action in Wisconsin.  But now Indiana can’t move similar legislation either!  In both cases, a specific number of Democrat legislators have literally fled their respective states to those controlled by Democrat governors to postpone their inevitable fetching [...]

Dems Likely Planning Lame-Duck Legislative Deluge

July 9, 2010

The buzz coming from the Wall Street Journal‘s John Fund this morning is that the Democrats seem poised to ram through their progressive/liberal wish list after the November 2 elections and before the new Congress is sworn in — a.k.a. the “Lame Duck” period to those of you unfamiliar with the political lingo. This signals [...]

Obama Proposes Takeover of America’s Health Care System

February 23, 2010

Barack Obama put forth his health care proposal yesterday, a nearly $1 trillion budget-busting takeover of 1/6 of the U.S. Economy.  Now, usually, American Presidents typically propose legislation before both houses of Congress pass their own versions, but I digress.  The plan is very similar to the Senate plan, but imposes new taxes, weakens the [...]

Liberalism Fails Every Time it’s Tried

February 17, 2010

Liberalism fails every time it’s tried.  In an editorial today, the Wall Street Journal outlines the utter failure of Democrat liberal governance every time the American people have granted them one-party rule.  Since the 1960s, the Democrats have had control over both houses of Congress and the Presidency four times – in the late 1960s [...]

New Debt Limit – $14.3 Trillion

January 28, 2010

The Debt Limit has been raised by Congress to $14.3 trillion dollars.  The Senate voted to raise it $1.9 Trillion on a strictly partisan basis, 60-40 (no wonder they delayed the swearing in of Scott Brown).  The amount that they are raising it is unprecedented in our nation’s history.  Some perspective: In 2001 when Bush [...]

Blue-Dog Democrat Switches to GOP

December 22, 2009

Much is often made by the state-run media along with the Democrats of how the GOP is made up of right-wing nuts who force moderates and others out of the party.  When a Republican such as Jim Jeffords and Arlen Specter switch to the Democrat party, much is made of about how the GOP doesn’t [...]

The Case Against Third Party Politics

December 8, 2009

Since the start of the Tea Party movement, talk of a Conservative third party has peculated on Twitter, around the blogosphere, and even making it into news punditry, advocated by such media heavyweights as Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, and Lou Dobbs.  While the idea of a ideological Conservative party seems like a good one intuitively, [...]

Republican Revolution II?

August 25, 2009

Things are starting to point towards a shifting tide in the mood of the electorate.  With the economy still floundering and the American People’s lack of enthusiasm about ObamaCare, Democrats should start to get worried.  Dick Morris was on Hannity last night, discussing the Democrat’s problems, and predicted that Republicans could very well pick up [...]

Harry Reid Hanging By A Thread

August 23, 2009

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) is hanging by a thread in his home state.  Like his predecessor, Sen. Tom Daschle (D-SD), Harry Reid has the problem of being the leader of the lefty-loons in the United States Senate, while representing a relatively conservative state in Nevada.  In a recent poll, Dusty Harry trailed both potential Republicans [...]

GOP Looks to Gains in Governorships

July 28, 2009

The ever-brilliant electoral analyst Michael Barone had a column in last week’s Washington Examiner which outlined how many formerly-popular Democrat Governors are in trouble.  In both of this year’s gubernatorial races, New Jersey and Virginia, the Democrat is behind in the polls.  In New Jersey, incumbent Gov. Corzine trails Republican challenger Chris Christie by a [...]

Democrat Culture of Corruption

March 13, 2009

For the two years leading up to the 2006 mid-term elections, Democrats lambasted Republicans for the culture of corruption.  Yet whatever corrupt elements existed within the GOP (and there indeed were some), they pale in comparison to those being uncovered in the current Democrat Party.  To name just a few, let’s take three examples: Sen.

Republicans Supporting Earmarks Are Republicans Why?

March 3, 2009

The Senate rejected an amendment offered by John McCain earlier today that would have enacted a spending freeze for the rest of the fiscal year and eliminated over eight thousand earmarks from the President’s most recent Spend Other People’s Money That We Don’t Have Act.  The outrage is not that the Amendment was defeated, though [...]

Dems Launch Petition Against Rush

January 27, 2009

The Democrats via the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DSCC) have foolishly launched an online petition drive against Rush Limbaugh, asking readers to email in their outrage to Rush over his comments that he doesn’t want the President to succeed.  Rush’s reaction, via his website: I am greatly puzzled. Why would the Democrats petition against me [...]

Blue-Dogs Seek Leadership

November 8, 2008

One of the reasons that the Democrats won the Congress in 2006 is that they ran moderate-sounding Democrats in Red states.  The trend continued in 2008 as they picked up another 20 seats.  Now the Blue-Dogs are asserting themselves by demanding a seat at the leadership table in the House. Says Rep. Allen Boyd (D-Fla.), [...]

Obama Voter Fraud

October 9, 2008

The Democrat Party has a long tradition of Voter Fraud, and this year is no exception.  Much of the current controversy has surrounded groups like ACORN, which is a “community organizing” group that has a history of supporting Voter Fraud.  ACORN is particularly interesting this year due to Obama’s long-standing connections with ACORN.  In fact, the Obama [...]

How McCain Can Win

October 6, 2008

bJohn McCain is currently behind in Presidential election by three to eight points, depending on the poll.  With only a month less to go, McCain’s current strategy is obviously not working.  During the last two weeks, the Obama campaign has succeeded in defining the narrative of the day.  McCain needs aggressively to go on the offensive [...]

Cuntry Roads: She Who Must Not Be Named Wins West Virginia Primary

May 13, 2008

She Who Must Not Be Named won tonight’s West Virginia Democrat Primary by a landslide. Despite tonight’s lopsided result, little has changed in the race for the other party’s nomination. As was the case before tonight, the primary is essentially over. I mean, she was singing months ago. (I wonder if Barack Obama could name [...]
