Crimea Secedes, Russia Succeeds, Ukraine Pleads, America Won’t Lead

March 18, 2014

The last week or so has seen an acceleration of events between Russia, Crimea, and Ukraine which seemingly could spiral anywhere. Russian-occupied Crimea voted the other day to secede — I’m not sure how “legal” the vote was until one thinks, of course, that there is no such thing as international law, just international norms [...]

Mitt Romney May Be Considering a 2016 Run.

March 9, 2014

I can’t say this is an absolute, but I am going to do my best to avoid trying predicting the future on this site because it is impossible for human beings to predict how other human beings will exercise their free will.  It’s hard enough to make sense of what people are doing in the [...]

Russia to Invade Ukraine

March 1, 2014

Events are moving fast in Ukraine:  violent protests, parliament removing their leader, an interim government trying to catch its breath, etc.  Complicating the situation is the ethnic makeup of Ukraine — 17.3% are Russian, most of whom live in the eastern part of the country. After making plenty of noise about possibly sending troops, the [...]

Slow Jam with Mitt

January 25, 2014

Mitt Romney recently appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to “Slow Jam the News.”  It’s pretty good, with a few good zings and tons of innuendo.  Check it out: H/T: The Blaze

Romney Opposed to Defunding Obamacare

August 7, 2013

Speaking to a large group of GOP fundraisers in New Hampshire yesterday, former Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney sent the message that the GOP should give up any fight to defund Obamacare that would risk a government shutdown. In Romney’s words: I badly want Obamacare to go away, and stripping it of funds has appeal.  [...]

ORCA – A Failure Of Epic Proportions

November 9, 2012

While everyone in the Conservative Movement and Republican party are looking introspectively at Tuesday’s loss, one new piece of information has surfaced that may be more heartbreaking than anything else – Tuesday’s election just may have been lost by bad software.  As a Software Engineer myself, I can attest to the importance of quality control, [...]

Obama Redux

November 7, 2012

At about 11:14pm last evening, Fox News called Ohio for Obama.  Only being a matter of time before the gig was up and Obama’s reelection was official, I subsequently went to bed with a splitting headache and a deep sense of foreboding about the direction the American people are choosing to go.  I’ve spent the [...]

George Will on the Perils of Our Entitlement Culture

October 29, 2012

Occasionally, staunch Republican establishment-types like George Will get it right.  In his latest OpEd, Will makes the case that our entitlement culture is out of control because it is essentially “mugging” our descendants to pay for the debts we compile now.  In fact, he blames both parties, particularly those Republican administrations after the Great Society [...]

Dueling “Surprises” Fall Flat

October 25, 2012

Obama shill and liberal hack Gloria Allred has done her best to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney in the run-up to November 6. Unfortunately for her a few things got in the way:  1) Mitt Romney’s squeaky clean, and 2) the apparent dirt is an 18-year-old charge which first appeared in Mitt’s 1994 run [...]

Romney Rocks the First Debate

October 4, 2012

I hope you had a chance to watch last night’s Presidential Debate because personally I thought it was awesome!  The candidates both came prepared, both are good on the stump, and both outlined a stark contrast about how they would deal with the issues facing America today.  Plus, the debate’s format both encouraged a conversation [...]

RNC Speeches Day 3: Smitten by Mitt

August 31, 2012

The final evening of speeches at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa capped a solid three days of a pro-American, pro-free market, pro-opportunity political festival.  Hurricane Isaac forced the convention into a three-day affair, but in truth packing all the speeches and events into three days instead of four allowed the message to come [...]

RNC Speeches Day 1: Ann and Christie Have Arrived

August 29, 2012

After yesterday afternoon’s debacle on the RNC floor, I was feeling much less enthusiastic going into last night’s prime time RNC speeches.  I started watching around 7:30pm EDT only to see Reince Priebus, Establishment tool, trying to excite the crowd.  It wasn’t working beyond the token uttering of “Mitt Romney” which consistently elicited obligatory applause [...]

Romney Makes Birth Certificate Joke; Left Flips Out

August 25, 2012

Yesterday, Mitt Romney was giving a speech in Michigan and said this: Subsequently, the left erupted in apoplectic fits and bouts filled with the most supreme indignant outrage.  The Obama campaign even cut an ad within hours slamming the statement! The odd thing is… it was a joke.  It was clearly a joke.  Slate‘s Dave [...]

Who’s In and Out at the Republican National Convention

August 14, 2012

Some new speakers have been named to the list of those speaking at the Republican National Convention in two weeks. Notable ins:  Chris Christie, who will  be giving the keynote address, and Marco Rubio, who will be introducing Mitt Romney on the final night.  Christie and Rubio are GOP superstars who undoubtedly will do a [...]

Initial Impact of Paul Ryan’s Speech

August 12, 2012

In case you missed Paul Ryan’s speech yesterday, he sounded like every Republican should — conservative.  More importantly he gets it (watch from around 13:15 especially).  Check out the whole speech here: It must have had an impact:  the left didn’t seem too ready today to deal with the fact that Obamacare itself plans to [...]

Harry Reid Spouts Tax Rumor on Senate Floor

August 2, 2012

Harry Reid took to the Senate floor today to accuse Mitt Romney of not paying his taxes for ten years. How does he know?  Apparently, the “word is out.” Seriously?  Megyn Kelly had a guest on today which dealt with this charge perfectly!  The Dems merely want Romney to release his tax records to find [...]

Romney Defends American Business

July 18, 2012

Yesterday, Mitt Romney finally struck back against Obama’s diminution of American business last Friday.  Here is a clip from Romney’s rebuttal: Solid defense (be it four days too late!). Dovetailing that, the Romney campaign exposed the Obama Team’s hypocrisy on Bain Capital noting that: “President Obama has based his entire reelection campaign on a vicious, [...]

Unemployment Remains Stuck at 8.2%

July 6, 2012

Today’s June jobs report seemed redundant:  only 80,000 jobs added (a full one-third of those are temporary) as the unemployment rate held steady at 8.2%.  The infamous U6 number went up a tenth of a percent to 14.9%.  It takes about 150,000 new jobs per month just to keep pace with population growth.  Plus, the [...]

An Energized Romney Vote?

June 29, 2012

After yesterday’s mind-boggling SCOTUS decision, Mitt Romney made these remarks about it: Romney’s campaign raised over $4 million since then and I’m sure I speak for many conservatives when I express this notion:  I woke up yesterday with the intention of merely holding my nose to vote for Romney in November, and went to bed [...]

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 [...]

Romney Clinches the GOP Nomination

May 30, 2012

Making it official, Mitt Romney crossed the 1,144 delegate threshold last night with his win of at least 88 delegates in Texas, ostensibly becoming the GOP nominee to battle Obama in the Fall.  Apparently, this is the latest a Republican shored up the nomination since conventions mattered, yet still about a week sooner than Obama [...]

Ron Paul Essentially Calls It Quits

May 14, 2012

Texas Congressman Ron Paul announced today in an email that he will not be spending money in states where primaries have not yet been held.  Essentially, if he’s stopped campaigning, it’s pretty much over.  By not officially “suspending” his campaign, Ron Paul gets to potentially amass more delegates and possibly make some noise at the [...]

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 [...]

Romney Ready for the Nomination

April 25, 2012

Last night was a big one.  With only low-polling Newt and Ron Paul to combat Romney for the Republican nomination, Romney swept five Northeastern states last night:  New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Delaware.  Afterwards, Romney gave a speech in New Hampshire that I think was his best to date: This morning word came [...]

“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 [...]

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 [...]

Romney Resignation

March 7, 2012

“Super Tuesday” has come and gone.  This morning, after seeing that Romney won Ohio, I could finally articulate what that sinking feeling I’ve been having for a few weeks was:  “Romney resignation.”  In other words, I have come to unconsciously accept that barring an act of God the inescapable reality of the 2012 GOP race [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

State of the Union — What You Won’t Hear Tonight

January 24, 2012

The President will give his third State of the Union address tonight at 9pm EST.  It will be filled with poll-tested decisive-sounding promises of new entitlements, he may take a shot at his prospective opponents, he’ll definitely hit Congress and remind us of his order to kill Osama Bin Laden, and he’ll lie about his [...]
