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 [...]

The Establishment Strikes Back at the RNC

August 28, 2012

The ostensible first day of the RNC isn’t going so well thus far. 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 [...]

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 [...]

TOTUS Revealed!

August 23, 2012

Obama or TOTUS?  From this angle, it definitely seems like TOTUS.  Not entirely sure though… Regardless, it’s definitely a pic worth adding to the echo chamber.  The GOP should have this picture on signs at the convention. In lieu of that, perhaps they could just broadcast Joe Biden squealing down the street in Tampa in [...]

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 [...]

Data: The Road to Recovery Begins with Electing Republicans

July 9, 2012

New unemployment data analysis indicates that all 17 states which elected a Republican governor in 2010 have seen a drop in that state’s unemployment rate, while all eight states who elected Democrats saw slower drops or actual increases in the unemployment rate since January 2011.  These GOP governors have had to make hard (and often [...]

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 [...]

That Old Third Party Buzz

March 13, 2012

On my way home from work tonight, I caught a bit of Hannity on the radio where he, Doug Schoen, and Ed Rollins spoke about the potential for a third party run, possibly by Jon Huntsman (who mentioned that potential and apparently got disinvited from the RNC).  The two Republicans thought a third party would [...]

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 [...]

The New Model for Political Fundraising

January 12, 2010

The NRCC, NRSC, and RNC are experiencing financial issues.  They are not meeting their fund raising targets, and are lagging behind the Democrats in both money raised and cash-on-hand.  Why is this the case, when the political mood seems to sharply favor Republicans and be antagonistic towards Democrats?  The answer is simple.  Conservatives have had [...]

Memo to RNC, NSCC, and NCCC: Enough With The RINOs!

November 2, 2009

Dede Scozzofava is the poster child for the RINO problem that has infiltrated our party.  The pattern is predictable.  The Republican establishment props up and supports a RINO candidate against a Conservative candidate who stands a chance of winning.  The Conservative base makes noise and is told to shut up and support the Republican candidate [...]

And the New RNC Chair is: Michael Steele

January 30, 2009

Republicans elected their new RNC chair today, electing Maryland former Lt. Governor Michael Steele in the sixth ballot, defeating South Carolina RNC Chair Katon Dawson by a vote of  91 to 77.   Michael Steele brings fresh, outsider blood into the RNC.  Not being an RNC chair gives him a fresh perspective at leading our party [...]

Michael Steele and the Art of Communication

November 17, 2008

An indispensable part of the Republican National Committee Chairman’s job is communication.  With Michael Steele being the center of attention in this year’s race for RNC chair, it might be helpful to revisit the last time he needed to put a message together, his 2006 Senate race against Ben Cardin. Steele did not win that [...]

McCain’s Address

September 5, 2008

Last night I watched John McCain give his acceptance speech to the Republican National Convention; watching along with more people than saw The One, himself, a week earlier, discounting PBS (McCain was on fewer networks, however).  With Pain solidifying the Right, and positioning himself in the “non-ideological center,” McCain set himself up well for garnering wide electoral [...]

RNC– Day 3: Sarah, Rudy, Mike and Mitt

September 4, 2008

Last night’s Republican line-up was awesome!  When Republicans fight back and articulate our basic winning principles in such a fashion as last night, we’re very hard to beat.  After 9pm EDT the activities began in earnest: Mitt Romney’s speech was pretty good.  I thought he started slow but really gained momentum when he articulated conservative principles in [...]

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 [...]
