Tea Party Turns Five

February 27, 2014

From September 2008 to February 2009 nearly $1.6 trillion America didn’t have had been spent by our government: TARP to bailout Wall Street ($700 billion), plus the auto bailouts ($80 billion), plus the Stimulus to bailout Democrat constituencies ($787 billion).  When would it stop?  Who would end up paying for it?  Anyone paying attention was [...]

Ryan’s 2012 Election Prediction

November 5, 2012

It’s almost go-time America!  Tomorrow, there’s a major fork in the road staring at us all.  Neither direction fully solves our problems, but one leads us to the abyss a lot faster.  A President Romney will try to take on the big issues and maybe get us pushed in the right direction.  A re-elected President [...]

My Sandy Experience

November 4, 2012

Well, Hurricane Sandy was one to remember.  The rains came by Monday afternoon at about 4pm.  By 5:30pm the lights were flickering a bit, but my area has underground power lines and I’m a few blocks from a major hospital, so I wasn’t too worried.  By 7:45pm, the lights went off and didn’t come back [...]

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 [...]

The Final Presidential Debate of 2012

October 23, 2012

The final Presidential Debate of the 2012 election season took place last night.  The topic was foreign policy and the affair was moderated by Bob Schieffer of CBS News. Honestly, I didn’t watch it (I was a bit under the weather and barely made it through the Monday Night Football kickoff), nor have I watched [...]

Romney Gets Laughs at Al Smith Dinner

October 19, 2012

Last night was the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner where both Romney and Obama showed up to roast themselves and each other a bit and cheer the Foundation.  Knowing that the candidates don’t write their own material, delivery is key.  Romney was great — I even laughed out loud a few times!  Here was [...]

Clinton Hits Obama Record at Campaign Event

October 18, 2012

Campaigning for Romney Obama with Bruce Springsteen in Ohio today, Bill Clinton said this: Here’s the text, just in case you needed to experience that in another medium: Governor Romney’s argument is ‘we’re not fixed, so fire him and put me in.’ It is true, we’re not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes [...]

The Town Hall Debate Toss-up

October 17, 2012

Last night, President Obama and Governor Romney faced off in their second Presidential debate.  This town hall-style debate format was moderated by CNN’s Candy Crowley and featured questions she selected from Gallup’s idea of “uncommitted voters.“  When it was over both sides seemed to have accomplished their goals:  no sluggish Obama and Romney held serve. [...]

Second Presidential Debate Preview

October 15, 2012

Regarding tomorrow night’s second Presidential debate, the headlines in the MSM are likely already written : “Obama’s Big Comeback!” or something like that.  Obama’s first debate performance was so awful based on expectations that anything is apt to be an improvement.  They’ll talk about how Obama connected with the people much better than Romney in [...]

Obama Team — Denied by Big Bird

October 9, 2012

The Obama team rolled out a new campaign ad which features (no joke) Big Bird: Wow.  Terrible use of sarcasm, silly imagery, and most shockingly this amateur-style ad actually has the President endorsing it.  Plus, Sesame Workshop has asked for the ad to be pulled since Big Bird is non-partisan. How weak can one possibly [...]

Romney on Foreign Policy

October 8, 2012

Giving a major foreign policy speech at the Virginia Military Institute today, Mitt Romney took it to President Obama, saying amongst other things that “Hope is not a strategy” while calling Obama out on the 9/11 Libya attack and Obama’s foreign policy drift. Predictably, the Obamabots in the MSM immediately panned it, calling it vague.  [...]

Did You Get Your Obamaphone Yet?

September 27, 2012

This SEIU-sponsored anti-Romney rally in Cleveland yesterday was very…um… telling and I’m sure by adding this piece to the echo chamber it’ll be considered the height of racism to many of our friends in the race business.  But rest assured, there are no “code words” and “dog whistles” here.  Enjoy: Alas!  Did you pick up [...]

Romney’s Taxes Released

September 21, 2012

Given the media-driven tumultuous ten days for Mitt Romney, the GOP Presidential candidate decided to take one issue away from the libs this cycle by releasing his 2011 tax returns and getting PWC to vouch that Romney’s been a loyal taxpayer for the entire period in question.  Not only have the Romney’s paid more than [...]

Romney Gaffe Rorschach Test

September 18, 2012

Yesterday, a liberal blog revealed part of a video from a last May where Mitt Romney said this: So, in full damage-control mode Romney gave a 10pm news conference last night to deal with this issue: I don’t think this gaffe will shake things up too much — gaffes haven’t changed much anyway in this [...]

Romney Should Be Worried

September 17, 2012

We are 50 days out from the most important election of our lifetimes.  The contrast is about as stark as any since 1984, with two futures staring us in the face:  a future toward inevitable bankruptcy and decline or a future where we try to avoid that.  Obama has the worst jobs record since the [...]

Romney vs. Obama on 9/11 Embassy Attacks

September 12, 2012

Yesterday, the US embassy in Egypt and the US consulate in Libya were attacked, leaving four dead including our ambassador, and tarnishing American prestige even more in the region. These events are still in flux as more information seems to be coming out by the hour.  The catalyst for the violence is a 14-minute film [...]

The Fall Campaign Begins with Slight Obama Edge

September 8, 2012

There are now less than 60 days left until Election Day and the polls are very tight with Obama having a slight lead over Mitt Romney in the RCP average.  Rasmussen shows a discernible Obama bounce from his convention;  after being down by two to Romney last week, Obama’s up by two today.  In both [...]

Obnoxious New Spending Revealed in DNC Platform

September 6, 2012

Bill Clinton tried to help Obama’s prospects for November last night at the DNC, giving a near 50-minute speech.  Even though I agree with some that Clinton’s voting for Romney, he needs credibility supporting Obama, so he’s not to be blamed for a potential Obama loss.  It’s no coincidence that Hillary’s on the other side [...]

US Debt Tops $16 Trillion as DNC Gets Under Way

September 4, 2012

On the first full day of the 2012 Democrat National Convention, the Treasury Department says that our national debt will eclipse the $16 trillion mark today. That number looks like this: $16,000,000,000,000.00 That’s fitting since Obama has added roughly $5.4 trillion to that number — more than any President ever.  He inherited TARP, passed the [...]

Blue Moon for Armstrong

August 31, 2012

Neil Armstrong was laid to rest today, which happens to be a blue moon, when a full moon occurs twice within the same calender month.  There won’t be another one until July 2015.  Armstrong’s family wants people to look out at the moon tonight and give Neil a wink. Armstrong’s passing was even mentioned in [...]

A Lucid Moment at Newsweek

August 21, 2012

By now, you may have heard about Newsweek‘s latest cover article by Niall Ferguson which makes a strong case for replacing Obama.  In short, Ferguson believes that Obama has not kept his promises, has not demonstrated the ability to lead us through these tough times, and really doesn’t have a clue regarding foreign policy.  Thus, [...]

Erskine Bowles Hearts Paul Ryan

August 14, 2012

I need to add this video to the echo chamber!  It’s a clip of former Clinton Chief of Staff Erskine Bowles, who was also part of the Obama-appointed then thoroughly ignored Simpson-Bowles deficit commission, lauding Paul Ryan back in September 2011.  If Romney continues the campaign strategy of using Democrats in their own words, this [...]

It’s Paul Ryan

August 11, 2012

Wisconsin Representative Paul Ryan will become the Vice Presidential nominee for the GOP in 2012.  Mitt Romney apparently narrowed down the choice by August 1 when Romney returned from Poland. I’ve loved Paul Ryan’s politics for years now.  Why not?  He’s an unabashed bold articulate conservative who’s unafraid of the left because he’s got facts on his [...]

Obama vs. Democrats on Welfare Reform

August 8, 2012

I’m glad that the Romney team has continued to use Obama’s own words against him in TV and Internet ads.  Here’s the latest ad, which pits Clinton, Kerry, Carl Levin, and his own Vice President Biden against Obama’s latest gutting of the landmark 1996 welfare reform: I wonder if Clinton will bring this up during his marquis [...]

Obama Super PAC Crosses a Line

August 7, 2012

“Priorities USA Action,” an Obama super PAC, produced this ad which clearly crosses a line: The gist:  Mitt Romney is somehow responsible for the death of this man’s wife. Is the left already going there?  I figured they eventually would, but this is backbench, desperation-type stuff in early August.  On top of it all, the [...]

August Not Likely to Be Quiet

August 4, 2012

It’s August 4, which means as of today (President Obama’s 51st birthday) there are 94 days left until the election.  Usually, August is a quiet month in politics — Congress is in recess, Presidents usually go on “working” vacations, and the polls tend to chip away slightly at incumbents before settling one way or another [...]

Carney Stumbles on Naming Israeli Capital

July 28, 2012

Question:  What is the capital of Israel?  Answer:  Jerusalem Simple, right?  Not in an election year with a Democrat administration in office! President Obama just authorized the transfer of $70 million to Israel saying:  “I have made it a top priority for my administration to deepen cooperation with Israel across a whole spectrum of security [...]

While presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney tours a number of countries over the next few weeks, he’s currently in London for tomorrow night’s 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremonies.  In the meantime, he met with Prime Minister David Cameron and others to talk about the games, etc., which offered a small moment of tension — Romney [...]

Blitzer Comments on Obama’s NAACP Dodge

July 13, 2012

President Obama decided that he was just too busy to attend this years NAACP convention in Houston, so he sent Eric Holder, a taped video, and Joe Biden instead.  Mitt Romney, of course, showed up knowing his reception would not be overly warm.  Romney earned a lot of respect for doing that.  Obama, however, has been criticized by some for [...]
