August 30, 2012

After many solid speeches throughout Day 1 of the convention, I was interested to see if the message would shift on Day 2.  It did.  Yesterday the was time to take it directly to Obama (finally).  The specific criticism missing from Chris Christie’s speech was on full display in prime time last night!

Campaign endorsement season is finally upon us.  Yesterday, both republican frontrunners in the 2012 race received noteworthy endorsements.  Rick Perry landed an endorsement from Bobby Jindal, the popular Governor of Louisiana while Mitt Romney earned the endorsement of his former rival Tim Pawlenty.  You remember him, the guy who called Romney’s health care plan “Obamneycare?” [...]

T-Paw Runs Empty Podium Ad

August 9, 2011

Before President Downgrade delivered his latest uninspiring speech yesterday, he played a little joke on the plebs.  You see, he told the networks he would speak at one o’clock, but didn’t actually show up until a little before two.  During that hour, many of the cable channels ran images of the Empty Suit’s empty podium.  [...]

Pawlenty Officially Enters the Race

May 23, 2011

We all knew this announcement was coming: Unlike many other candidates already in/out of the GOP hunt, Tim Pawlenty is not flashy, charismatic or a well-known commodity outside the party.  However, he’s articulate, has administrative experience, pretty conservative, and aside from a passing flirtation with cap-and-trade back in the day, has very little baggage that [...]

Pawlenty Forms Exploratory Committee

March 21, 2011

That title is about as energized as I felt when I heard the announcement that former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is likely to run for President.  After a wide “yawn” and long arm stretch I thought, “Well, OK.  The video’s not too bad — Reagan, Lincoln.  OK.  Now, what else you got?” All my negativity [...]

March 2, 2011

Potential 2012 GOP Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee repeatedly told the Steve Malzberg Show audience that Obama grew up in Kenya, rather than Indonesia, but went further by creating a narrative about an anti-British sentiment Obama demonstrates as a result (fyi: Indonesia was under Dutch not British control). Gaffe?  Sure.  Bad gaffe?  Potentially.  In fact, I’m [...]
