Dems Pick Fight Over Early Voting for Military in Ohio

August 5, 2012

The Obama campaign and the Ohio Democrats are filing a lawsuit against an Ohio law allowing members of the military to cast an early-voting ballot until the day before Election Day.  Granted, the cut-off day for everyone else is three days before the election, but due to the erratic schedules of some military personnel the [...]

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).

Given the cover of the big oil spill in the Gulf Coast, I believe that it isn’t going to take long for the Obama Administration to conclude that their anemic offshore drilling policy is just to risky to continue.  The Administration is already throwing BP under the bus as cover for the government’s inaction.  BP [...]

Obama’s Media Blues

March 4, 2008

The voting hasn’t yet wrapped in Texas, Ohio, Vermont or Rhode Island, but it is likely that Obama will win enough delegates tonight to turn the establishment against She Who Must Not Be Named by the time Pennsylvania comes around.  I hope not — I love watching the Democrat in-fighting! However, at the same time it’s been [...]
