Rubio’s Two Faces on Immigration

June 11, 2013

I’ve been very critical of Senator Marco Rubio lately, and for good reason — his “evolving” position on immigration “reform” now includes changing his point of view based upon his audience. On the Rush Limbaugh program in January Rubio believed: First of all, legalization does not begin automatically. We don’t want to wait on legalizing [...]

Covering Injuries in the 2012 NFL Season

September 9, 2012

Today the 2012 NFL season kicks off its opening weekend.  A game has already been played — the Cowboys defeated the Super Bowl-winning Giants 24-17 on Wednesday, playing opposite Bill Clinton‘s DNC speech, in fact.  For me football equals Fall, and I love the Fall, so I’m excited.  Go Pats! However, the game will be [...]

The Fall Campaign Begins with Slight Obama Edge

September 8, 2012

There are now less than 60 days left until Election Day and the polls are very tight with Obama having a slight lead over Mitt Romney in the RCP average.  Rasmussen shows a discernible Obama bounce from his convention;  after being down by two to Romney last week, Obama’s up by two today.  In both [...]

Obama Speaks — Unemployment Drops

September 7, 2012

Last night President Obama gave his big speech to the DNC accepting their nomination for President.  Not everyone was impressed.  Many thought it was small, filled with straw men. One angle I was monitoring dealt with this morning’s unemployment report. Because nearly 368,000 dropped out of the job hunt, the unemployment rate actually lowered to [...]

Obnoxious New Spending Revealed in DNC Platform

September 6, 2012

Bill Clinton tried to help Obama’s prospects for November last night at the DNC, giving a near 50-minute speech.  Even though I agree with some that Clinton’s voting for Romney, he needs credibility supporting Obama, so he’s not to be blamed for a potential Obama loss.  It’s no coincidence that Hillary’s on the other side [...]

God Returns to Democrat Platform

September 5, 2012

After yesterday’s crazy exchange between Senator Dick Durbin and Fox’s Bret Baier, the Dems must have thought about the political fallout from the DNC’s exorcism of the word “God” and omitting the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from their official platform. So, God’s been resurrected by the delegates, eliciting boos from a crowd that [...]

US Debt Tops $16 Trillion as DNC Gets Under Way

September 4, 2012

On the first full day of the 2012 Democrat National Convention, the Treasury Department says that our national debt will eclipse the $16 trillion mark today. That number looks like this: $16,000,000,000,000.00 That’s fitting since Obama has added roughly $5.4 trillion to that number — more than any President ever.  He inherited TARP, passed the [...]

DNC Speakers Revealed

September 1, 2012

The DNC has released a list of speakers at their convention next week. ***If I could ask a favor of you, PLEASE paste this URL into another window before reading the subsequent “highlight” list: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWO5Ai_a80M&feature=related OK, now go: Debbie Wasserman Schultz, shrill voice of the DNC Elizabeth Warren, an Indian woman running against Scott Brown [...]

Feminist Malaise at the DNC (and Outside the RNC!)

August 27, 2012

Unless you are a child with “credentials,” you are not to be allowed on the Democratic National Convention floor, even if all you are doing is being breastfed.  I thought that hippie/granola public breastfeeding thing would be cool with the free-spirited Lib elite, but alas no. Oddly, some feminazis are upset by this, citing the [...]

McCaskill on Key DNC Speaker Bill Clinton

August 24, 2012

Todd Akin is a national distraction, sustaining a huge swing in the polls against him since making a ridiculous statement about rape last weekend — he had been beating incumbent Claire McCaskill in Missouri, but is now getting trounced.  By remaining in the race, Akin is putting himself above the cause and will continue to [...]

Obama Endorses Gay Marriage

May 9, 2012

One day after the people of North Carolina adopted a ban on gay marriage, President Obama goes on the record supporting it (by the way, Charlotte happens to be where the Democratic National Convention is being held this summer… oops, slight oversight). Of course, this is ultimately where Obama wanted to go on the issue [...]

“War on Women” Charge Backfiring

April 12, 2012

In an early January debate, George Stephanopoulos asked Mitt Romney a totally irrelevant question about the issue of birth control which the Supreme Court settled in 1965 and whose proposal was not on any state ballot.  Then, within a month or so the Catholic outcry over Obamacare and whole Sandra Fluke-thing broke commencing the Dems [...]

Occupy Wall Street Needs Cash

March 11, 2012

Occupy Wall Street has around three weeks left before they potentially run out of bail, kitchen, and medical money.  So, a sporadically violent group of otherwise privileged unemployed useful-idiot agitators is running out of cash?  I’m shocked! Perhaps there are a lessons in all of this:  when people live beyond their means, times get tough [...]

Now It’s Romney Targeting the “1%”

February 22, 2012

I have been resigned the last month or so that Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee.  Here’s a scenario:  if Romney does well in Arizona and outright wins Michigan, no one will be able to compete with him on Super Tuesday.  As a result, money for Rick and Newt will begin to dry-up, while [...]

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 [...]

Dem Strategy in NJ — Blame Bush!

September 22, 2009

Apparently, DNC Chair Tim Kaine is floating an old liberal favorite for the New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial races this Fall – blame Bush!  Even “pollster” John Zogby, a self-identified Democrat, [figures, doesn't it] said:  “A good fallback for Democrats is to remind the nation of the George W. Bush presidency.”  Frankly, that’s really really weak.  Benchmarks [...]

In Love with Gustav

August 31, 2008

Reason #314 why I will not be voting for a Democrat any time soon:  former DNC Chairman, Don Fowler was giddy with the notion that the deadly Category 4 Hurricane Gustav (as of this writing anyway– it could go up to Cat 5 by landfall) is timed so well with the Republican National Convention that it just [...]

Day 3–The Truly Historic Moment in Denver

August 27, 2008

There was a major historical moment tonight at the Democrat National Convention… You guessed it!  At 6:49pm EDT the Democrat Party nominated a Presidential candidate with less experience than anyone in living memory! (see below)  He’s never really done anything of note, had to make a serious executive decision with true consequences, has no major legislation with his [...]

McCain Up 5 in Latest Zogby Poll

August 20, 2008

Up 46%-41% over The One, John McCain finally has the lead in a national poll!  What’s special about this poll is not simply that McCain is up, but unlike many of the polls which have this race tied, the new Reuters-Zogby poll is of 1,089 “likely voters”, rather than the weaker “registered voters” or the [...]

John Kerry… For Vice President?

August 15, 2008

The Veepstakes game is not a precise science, but some today are seriously thinking that John F’in Kerry, Lurch himself, could be on Obama’s short list for his “foreign policy credentials:”  like Kerry’s famous ”global test” debacle of 2004, or his Vietnam War service, complete with lying about our troop’s behavior to Congress once he got home?    I’m sure the Obama [...]

Is Colin Powell a Turncoat?

August 13, 2008

Some inside info from Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard indicates that not only will Colin Powell eventually endorse Obama, but may even speak at the Convention!  Powell denies all of this to ABC and “Roll Call”, but in today’s crazy political environment where you have Republicans for Obama (maybe they’re still awash in his saintly [...]

Obama’s FISA Flip-Flop

July 9, 2008

It’s been really entertaining lately watching Barack Obama pretend that he’s a moderate and hasn’t changed any of his positions despite all the YouTube and print-media evidence to the contrary.  Today’s FISA reauthorization/clarification bill is a great example: Here’s an Obama spokesman’s remarks from a talking-points memo from October 2007 on the issue of the FISA [...]
