Baffling: Bush Admin Covers Up WMDs in Iraq

October 17, 2014

The old WMD story has recently resurfaced and if what I’ve read is true, I’m beyond outraged. The back story:  Back in 2006 the Pentagon feared that the insurgents (particularly Al Qaeda in Iraq, now ISIS) would use remnants of Saddam’s chemical weapon stockpile against US troops particularly for use in IEDs. Of course, that [...]

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 [...]

Rick Santorum Bows Out

April 11, 2012

Rick Santorum suspended his campaign for President yesterday.  His decision was probably a wise move.  Although it was still possible for Santorum to catch up to Romney, it was highly unlikely.  Romney holds a significant lead in the delegate count and most of the states voting on April 24.  Mitt was even competitive in Santorum’s [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Newt Sips Some Tea under the Old Palmetto Tree

January 22, 2012

Though statistically tied about a week ago, the battle for South Carolina shifted dramatically in favor of Newt Gingrich when the votes were finally counted.  Last night’s primary yielded a 40-28% Gingrich victory (thus far) over Mitt Romney.  Rick Santorum came in third place with 17%, with Ron Paul bringing up the rear with 13%. [...]

Santorum Wins Iowa, GOP Establishment Calls it a Tie

January 19, 2012

When Mitt Romney held an eight-vote lead at the end of Iowa caucus night, there was some question as to whether the lead would hold.  Usually, states re-canvass the votes after the actual election night to account for things like mathematical and typographical errors.  This is rarely significant even in the closest of elections because [...]

Rick Perry Heading Back to Texas

January 19, 2012

Texas Governor Rick Perry announced today that he’s dropping out of the GOP race for President, admitting there’s no “viable path” to the nomination.  He then endorsed Newt Gingrich (who happens to be right on the food stamp thing). I happen to agree with Perry’s decision and his campaign assessment.  He peaked last Fall when [...]

Virginia’s GOP Ballot is Kind of Short

January 13, 2012

As in:  Mitt Romney or Ron Paul only! As of this moment a district judge has ruled that Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry and Jon Huntsman failed to complete the paperwork in time and therefore cannot appear on the ballot when votes are taken on March 6.  Obviously, the remaining candidates are not pleased [...]

Mitt Romney Wins Iowa Caucuses; Santorum Now Relevant

January 4, 2012

The first part isn’t as bad it sounds, but it was still a good night for Mitt Romney.  It always is when you win a caucus or a primary, especially if it is the first one.  That said, the vote was remarkably close, with Romney edging out my candidate, Rick Santorum, by just 8 votes [...]

Sal’s Endorsement: Rick Santorum

January 3, 2012

Like Ryan, I am less than thrilled with the 2012 GOP Presidential field.  Four years ago to this very day I endorsed Mitt Romney for President – reluctantly so.  Today, I am as unsure about my choice as I was four years ago.  Throughout this whole campaign, I, along with the rest of the GOP [...]

CNN’s GOP Debate

June 14, 2011

Last night, St. Anselm College in New Hampshire hosted the latest GOP debate run by CNN. As you’d expect, CNN was the story:  they unsuccessfully kept trying to get the Republicans to beat on each other;  moderator John King kept making awkward noises through 90% of the answers;  many of the questions had liberal presuppositions;  [...]

Why Rick Santorum Wants You to Vote For McCain

April 21, 2008

The Philadelphia Inquirer posted this editorial by former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum which articulates as well as I’ve heard thus far the reasons why Conservatives should come out to vote for McCain.  Of course, true conservatives have some reservations about John McCain because of his stands on some of the issues and his obstruction over the [...]
