Noonan on the DC/America Divide

January 31, 2014

So, how long did it take you to change the channel during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address?  After Obama channeled his inner Paul Harvey with folksy tales of “real” Americans, he started his regular banter not caring about the accuracy of his statements because (let’s face it) most of those watching weren’t going [...]

House GOP to Push Obamacare Defund Vote

September 18, 2013

House Speaker John Boehner finally bent to the pressure within his caucus to push for a vote to defund Obamacare, threatening a showdown with Senate Democrats and the President which could result in a government shutdown October 1.  While I’d love a full repeal, I’ll take the GOP short-term proposal which doesn’t repeal Obamacare (yet), [...]

Not Sure About This Marco Rubio Fellow Anymore

June 1, 2013

The centripetal force of the statist-leaning ruling class in DC is enormous.  It gobbles up new, bright-eyed members all the time and spits out more of the same junk. Unfortunately, a once bright shining star in my eyes, Marco Rubio, has been caught up in it.  Nothing proves that more than how he’s become a [...]

March 11, 2013

Days after McCain called Rand Paul part of the “wacko birds” on Capitol Hill, Bill Kristol from the Weekly Standard chimed in to add his voice to the anti-Paul chorus.  In his condescending piece Kristol cites the opinion of, among others, Newsweek‘s David Frum (one of the left’s favorite RINOs) in his assault on Paul.  [...]

Earlier today, Texas Congressman Ron Paul made an appearance on the floor.  Shouts of praise for Paul and laments about rule changes filled the air.  Then, Maine’s Paul delegation was refused seating and all hell broke loose!  Chaos enveloped the floor as [...]

Please, Bushes, Go Away

February 25, 2012

I wish the Bushes would just go away.  Bush 41′s “conservatism” got us Bill Clinton, while Bush 43′s “conservatism” got us Barack Obama.  Jeb Bush said Thursday that he used to be a conservative, before correcting his Freudian slip, and warned the GOP to stop playing on people’s fears and pivot to the center as [...]

Stretching the Attacks Against Newt

January 27, 2012

If you’ve been paying attention to the politicking down in Florida this week, you may have noticed that Romney’s forces and his Establishment proxies launched a seemingly coordinated attack against Newt from nearly all sides and angles, even dragging Bob Dole out from retirement to hit the former Speaker. Well, today the frenzied pig-pile continued [...]

Establishment Hero, John McCain

July 28, 2011

Over the last day or two, the ruling class elites in the Republican Party establishment have gotten their knives out.  The Tea Party is more of an existential threat to them than the Democrats are, so an aggressive push against them has reared its head now that the GOP’s Tea Party faction is facing maximum [...]
