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 [...]

Financial Overhaul Bill Will Move

July 13, 2010

The template is set:  a bad Democrat bill which increases the size and scope of a government without tackling the underlying problem passes the House;  that terrible bill is a few votes short of cloture in the Senate;  suddenly two RINOs from Maine show up, think that they must do something and promise to vote [...]

I’m Glad Scott Brown is on Our Side

March 4, 2010

Some accused Senator Scott Brown of being a RINO when he voted for Reid’s $15 billion jobs bill. Yet isn’t it worth him voting the wrong way a few times if he’s solid on the real important legislation, such as ObamaCare? Nicely said, Senator Brown.  I’m so glad he’s MY United States Senator, and not [...]

So Scott Brown Voted for Reid’s Job’s Bill. Get Over it.

February 22, 2010

So Scott Brown voted to start debate on Harry Reid’s $15 billion scaled-back “jobs bill”.  The original “bi-partisan” bill was supposed to be a lot more – $85 billion.  The bill from the House is even larger still – $154 billion.  Now, this so-called jobs bill won’t do anything, and sure, I’m disappointed that my [...]

Biden Tries to Lecture Scott Brown on Military Tribunals

February 15, 2010

Newly-elected Senator Scott Brown (R-MA; yes, it still feels good to say that) is involved in a war of words with the Obama Administration’s court jester, Vice President Joe Biden.  Joe Biden suggested on Face the Nation this weekend that Brown didn’t know what he was talking about when it came to military tribunals, stating [...]

Senate Blocks Nomination of SEIU Thug Craig Becker

February 9, 2010

What a difference having a Republican in Ted Kennedy’s seat makes.  Earlier today the Senate blocked Barack Obama’s nomination of Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board.  Despite mainstream media headlines to the contrary, Republicans were not alone on this one.  The good news of defeating an SEIU thug cannot be overstated, but I’m [...]

Is Patrick Kennedy’s Seat in Play?

February 5, 2010

Yesterday, Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) got a challenger in his bid for reelection from state representative John Loughlin.  Loughlin may seem like just another ill-fated challenger to Kennedy (there have been many over the years) but this race is one to watch for two reasons: A new poll shows that 60% of voters in his [...]

Scott Brown Sworn in as Senator; Democrats Lose Supermajority

February 4, 2010

Just a few moments ago, Scott Brown was sworn in as a United States Senator, replacing interim Senator Paul Kirk.  Liberal interest groups everywhere (labor unions) are fuming.  Congratulations, Senator Brown.  Do us proud. Stay true to yourself and your principles, and don’t let Washington change you. Note to the Democrats:  your super-majority is over. [...]

William Galvin Certifies Scott Brown’s Election to Senate

February 4, 2010

Sixteen days after the fact, Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin has finally certified Scott Brown’s January 19 election victory over Democrat Martha Coakley.  In doing so, Galvin urged Brown to “respect the rights of the majority.” It would have been nice if Galvin simply followed his own advice.  The majority of voters, in [...]

New Democrat Strategy — Divide Republicans

January 26, 2010

We already know that one 2010 Democrat strategy is to blame Bush for everything, even though the Dems have had more power to yield this past year than any President/Congress combo since the Great Society.  Yet, a memo released today also indicates another prong in the Democrat attack:  divide Republicans ideologically between the weak-kneed moderate [...]

Democrat Leadership to Push ObamaCare Reconcilliation Bill

January 26, 2010

So the Democrat leaders are insistent on trying to drive their party off a cliff by using budget reconciliation as a tactic to try to ram ObamaCare through.  Here’s the situation:  the ObamaCare bill that passed the Senate does not have enough support in the House without significant changes.  Everything from the public option, to [...]

Tea Partying the National Tea Party Convention?

January 23, 2010

Seeing the widespread grassroots power of the amorphous Tea Party Movement it should come as no shock that some have sought to create an exclusive national leadership as an attempt to coalesce the movement around certain people, events, and message.  The catch is trying to be the first ones to do it so that your [...]

January 21, 2010

The new Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Bob McDonnell has been selected to deliver the GOP response to the State of the Union address in February.  While some were hoping for Scott Brown, McDonnell is a solid choice and one of the GOP’s rising stars.  His campaign for Governor was a great example of [...]

Beck on the Progressives Post-Brown

January 20, 2010

Yesterday, I was watching Beck when he made an interesting point about moving forward from Scott Brown’s glorious election in Massachusetts yesterday.  Run-of-the-mill Democrats would know how to react to Brown’s victory; they’d run to the middle and try to depict themselves as reasonable moderates who went astray and now got the message.  However, we [...]

So Brown Getting Elected Happened Because of Bush?

January 20, 2010

At least that’s Obama’s take on the matter: Here’s my assessment of not just the vote in Massachusetts, but the mood around the country: the same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office,” the president said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “People are angry and they are [...]

Congratulations, Senator Scott Brown!

January 19, 2010

A month ago, MrsSal and I were having a conversation about the upcoming special election.  This was right around the time that ObamaCare was making its way through the Senate, and Conservatives were feeling fairly dejected.  True, we had the victories in Virginia and New Jersey, but while important, neither was earth-shattering.  Anyways, MrsSal and [...]

January 19, 2010

In the spirit of 24′s season 8 premiere (very solid opening, by the way), and before Scott Brown news dominates the political universe even further, I wanted to share a forward a friend sent me spoofing Obama’s handling of the Underwear Bomber.  Enjoy:

Just Cast My Vote for Scott Brown

January 19, 2010

About an hour ago, I cast my vote for Scott Brown.  Anecdotally, it was no busier than previous elections that I have voted in.  MrsSal and I were in and out of the precinct in five minutes, both of us casting our vote for Brown (and feeling pretty damn excited about it).  Outside of the [...]

A Reagan Rallying Cry

January 18, 2010

As the whole nation watches the special election in Massachusetts tomorrow, I think it is worth pointing out and reminding everyone what we are fighting for.  As a resident of the state of Massachusetts, I am looking forward to casting my vote for Scott Brown tomorrow.  And while this blog (along with probably every other [...]

Brown’s Coalition

January 18, 2010

Michelle Malkin has a great article today about Brown’s coalition and what it means in regards to electoral politics.  It seems there are some on the RINO side of the party (David Frum, in this case) who content that Brown is a fellow-RINO, and that he is vindication that RINOs are needed to win elections.  [...]

Coakley Calls Curt Schilling a Yankee Fan

January 16, 2010

I may live in Massachusetts, but as you all know, I’m a Yankee fan. Still, as much as I can’t stand the Sox, as a fan of baseball in general, one has to admire former Sox pitcher Curt Schilling.  His “bloody sock” incident during the 2004 World Series represented a feat that Red Sox fans [...]

Martha Coakley: Practicing Catholics “Shouldn’t Work in an Emergency Room”

January 15, 2010

I told myself I wasn’t going to post anything on the Massachusetts Senate race today.  Yet somehow, Martha Coakley continues to step in it.  Today’s gaffe occurred after Princess was asked whether health care legislation should include a conscience clause to protect  health care workers opposed to abortion on religious grounds.  Coakley responded that “[y]ou [...]

Corrupt Media Desperately Tries to Save Coakley

January 13, 2010

The most obvious enemy to modern conservatism is the Democrat Party because that is the structure liberals use to win enough elections to pass and implement policies that control the lives of productive citizens and in the process undermine American strength and prosperity.  The surprisingly competitive Massachusetts Senate election shows just how important party is [...]

The Bi**h Factor and its Impact in the Massachusetts Senate Race

January 13, 2010

With the polls showing the race tightening and Scott Brown’s victory within reach, Coakley is getting nervous, and she is acting nervous.  This is very bad for her and good for us, as it brings in another factor common to New England Politics that may have an impact on the election.  I’ve written about it [...]

Rasmussen Reports: Scott Brown Within Two

January 12, 2010

Many liberal and conservative blogs love to cherry-pick polls favorable to the candidates they’re rooting for, but I’m proud of the fact that we aren’t one of them.  This website has always recognized reputable organizations such as Rasmussen, Mason-Dixon (the best pollster at the state level) and IBD-TIPP and disregarded the trash.  In following this [...]

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 [...]

Scott Brown Within Single Digits of Coakley

January 5, 2010

There were signs that something is going on in Massachusetts and now we have some empirical evidence.  According to the latest Rasmussen Reports poll, Republican Scott Brown trails Democrat Martha Coakley by single digits in the upcoming special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s old Senate seat.  Nine points is still a significant margin, but this [...]
