Cruz and Sessions: Read the Bill!

June 24, 2013

This week the Senate will pass an absolutely terrible comprehensive immigration bill which will likely be more harmful to the economy than to the Republican Party (if that’s possible), as well as not solving the problem. “Comprehensive” bills just mean “filled with junk that could never pass on its own.”  The other problem with “comprehensive” [...]

Paul Ryan’s Road Map and Why Republicans Suck

July 24, 2010

I used to call myself a Republican, but haven’t for a number of years now.  The answer is simple:  they suck.  A friend aptly once described our two parties as the Stupid Party (Republicans) and the Evil Party (Democrats):  “stupid” because Republicans never miss an opportunity to jump on their own sword even in the [...]

Tea Party vs NAACP

July 14, 2010

The Tea Partiers across America are a new phenomenon, only organizing early last year.  Though young, it’s very threatening to the typical Washington establishment which is fast approaching its nadir.  As part of that establishment, the NAACP has turned to the “race business” as a way to stay relevant and has unfortunately become mere race-baiting [...]

The GOP Could Have Prevented ObamaCare

April 8, 2010

There’s a debate going on in the blogosphere on whether or not the GOP could have prevented ObamaCare by preempting it with its own health care reform when it had power.  Consider this:  health care reform was a major issue in the 1992 campaign.  After the GOP gained power, they could have pushed more conservative, [...]

The Bi-Partisanship Healthcare Summit

February 11, 2010

The question is being hotly debated across the blogosphere and the D.C. punditry – should the Republicans go to Obama’s bi-partisan health care summit or not?  Ryan, Mike and I discussed the issue in-depth in our latest podcast, but a new story was released today which illustrates the folly of providing the President with a [...]

Reagan’s Birthday

February 6, 2010

Ronald Reagan (February 6, 1911 — June 5, 2004) would have turned 99 today.  As a rallying point to both Conservatives and Republicans, Reagan’s legacy continues to grow as the years go by.  Many historians have had to move on from their original “amiable dunce” interpretation of Reagan to grudgingly admit or contemplate the importance [...]

A Warning from Peggy Noonan

January 8, 2010

We could all sense over the last year or two that Peggy Noonan has wandered a bit from the reservation.  She caught a touch of Obama fever a year ago and began sounding like the perfect example of the kind of Republican who was getting ready to drift in the glorious minority for a generation [...]

Governor and White House Ambitions Go South: Sanford Admits Affair

June 24, 2009

Well, there’s one South Carolina boy who can forget about moving to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in three and a half years.  The story out of South Carolina the last few days has gone from “um, has anybody seen the Governor?  I know his wife doesn’t really care, but we do” to “I think he went [...]

A Little Hope for a Change

February 15, 2009

Though only about a month into the Obama Nation, an early political pattern may be developing:  Obama remains popular, but the Congressional Dems are slipping.  On the eve of Election Day, the generic Congressional ballot gave the Dems a six-point lead in Rasmussen’s poll.  Today they only have a one-point lead, a statistical tie and a consistent downward slide since November 4.  [...]

The Stimulus Vote and the Suspension of Democracy

February 13, 2009

First a bit of reality.  The stimulus is going to pass.  Only two scenarios could prevent that.  First, in the House, if 39 Blue-Dog Democrats (there are 49 in the Blue-Dog caucus) bolt and vote with the Republicans.  Not likely to happen.  Second, now that Kennedy cannot vote due to his health, if one of [...]

First Speedbumps for Obama

January 26, 2009

I always enjoy reading the U.K. papers in relation to events taking place in the U.S., because they put a perspective on things that we don’t get from our own media, despite having their own set of biases.  Today’s U.K. Telegraph paints a picture of an Obama administration slightly shell-shocked by the resistance thet they [...]

Conservative Republicans Back in Opposition

November 5, 2008

Barack Obama is now the President-Elect of the United States.  For that, he deserves to be congratulated and subjected to an honest and spirited opposition.  By “spirited opposition,” I don’t mean the kind of insanity and dishonesty we saw out of the left for the last eight years.  I mean the kind of opposition that [...]

Blame the Democrats for Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac

September 30, 2008

  These are your culprits, America,  The Sub-prime Mortgage Crisis is the fault of the Democrats.  It all started with the Community Redevelopment Act of 1975, which was desinged to force banks to give low-income housing to those who could not afford it.  For the first 20 years of its existence, however, it was not highly enforced.  Author Dan [...]

Democrats Attempt Ohio Voter Suppression

September 24, 2008

Despite all of the talk, it has been well documented that there was no evidence of voter suppression of Democrats, minorities, or others in 2000 by the Republicans or Bush Campaign, although there was a concerted effort to suppress military absentee ballots by the Gore campaign.  Now, in 2008, the Ohio Democrat Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner [...]

Let the Smears Begin!

September 2, 2008

It began today in earnest:  the MSM onslaught against the McCain-Palin ticket is in full force after using the Labor Day holiday to figure out a way to attack McCain-Palin.  It’s been tricky. Drudge has a good balance of the smearing on his site, including McCain’s response to what’s been going on since Friday at around 12:50 pm [...]

New Poll: The Democrat Congress Sucks More Than Ever

July 8, 2008

For the first time in the history of scientific polling, Congress, which happens to be controlled at present by Democrats, has reached a new all-time low of a 9% positive approval rating in the latest Rasmussen poll!  Splitting it up, that’s 2% excellent and 7% good, 36% fair, and 52% poor.  Yet, for some reason on a [...]

Nancy Pelosi on the Price of Gas in Her Own Words

June 27, 2008

Here’s a quote from San Fran Nan on the issue of high gas prices back in the summer of 2006: “With skyrocketing gas prices, it is clear that the American people can no longer afford the Republican rubber-stamp Congress and its failure to stand up to the Republican big oil and gas company cronies…. “Democrats [...]

Dem Oil Bill Goes Down

June 10, 2008

Score one for capitalism today, as the Dem’s “windfall profits” tax bill couldn’t get the sixty votes needed for cloture.  Hence, the bill is dead for now.  This populist, anti-capitalist proposal underscores the success Dems have had in deflecting the issue of energy prices solely onto the producers, not the regulators.  Congress won’t let them [...]

Dems Meet to Discuss Michigan and Florida Today

May 31, 2008

One simple question:  if this is how the Dems run their party, what’ll it be like when they run the country? Of course, we know the answer to that question, so let’s try to prevent that shall we?  The party that picked on Bush and the Republicans for eight years about mysterious “missing votes” in [...]

Gay Marriage in California

May 15, 2008

In a blatant example of judicial activism, the California Supreme Court today voted 4-3 to overturn the will of the people in order to impose gay marriage on the Golden State.  If McCain nor Congressional Republicans won’t jazz up the conservative base, this should!  Marriage issues, cultural issues, judicial activism, court appointments, etc. are all [...]

A Mississippi Massacre Portends a Cold November

May 14, 2008

First Dennis Hastert’s seat in Illinois, then two seats in the Deep South over the past two weeks.  Three House seats historically and reliably Republican have fallen to conservative Dems (Blue Dogs) who have no business winning seats in these historically Republican districts.  Yet, the Dems are winning them.  Mississippi Republican Greg Davis lost to Democrat [...]
