Romney Really Pulling Ahead In Some Polls

Finally, we have real data showing a shift to Romney. Both Quinnipiac and Rasmussen show a clear trend in the data (comparing polls from the same pollsters over time – apples to apples). Prior claims of a shift, as I noted previously, were not correct – just lucky. So it looks like Newt is losing […]

Mitt Blows Florida Debate, Santorum Shines, Newt Expands Momentum

Good lord, Mitt really is in trouble. It is not that Newt did great job (not even close to his performance in the last SC debate), but Romney blew it. He had no spark, no intensity. The best answers actually came from Santorum, who in my mind won the debate technically. He was spot on […]

Newt Has Completely Upended The 2012 Race

For those frustrated voters who sent a wave of new faces to DC in 2010 – to only see them stymied and gagged by the Democrat run Senate and the impotent Super Committee – Newt Gringrich’s campaign represents something important. He is a poke in the eye to the Political Industrial Complex, a signal that […]

Salute To Anderson Cooper – Cain Rises Above The Fray

Published by under 2012 Elections

First off, I am a political animal covering decades of the inside Beltway BS and I tip my hat to Anderson Cooper. For the most part, Anderson tried to give every candidate time on all issues, tried to give each candidate a chance to respond. He was excellent as a moderator (more please). Anderson teed […]

Center Of America Emerging From The Fevered Swamps

Published by under All General Discussions

I am glad to see more and more soul searching in the political chatter box regarding the extremism which has gripped both sides of the political spectrum. After the killing of  Dr. Tiller (the late term abortion doctor) and  that of Pvt William Long (the newly minted Army recruit), we are beginning to see where […]

GOP Self Destructing Over Sotomayor

Published by under 2010 Elections

It is as I feared, the ‘true conservatives’ have no self control, no class and no business trying to lead a reborn conservative movement to oppose Obama. It is beyond their meager skills. Their over the top, childish rhetoric is the problem – they cannot form a serious thought or debate point. It is become […]

Far Right Wants To Go Deeper Into The Political Wilderness

This is too funny: “If the Republicans can’t break out of being the right wing party of big government, then I think you would see a third party movement in 2012,” Gingrich said Tuesday. The speech, to a group of students at the College of the Ozarks in Missouri, was recorded by Springfield TV station […]

Sorry Newt, No More Conservative Retreads

Published by under All General Discussions

Word is out Newt Gingrich and Michael Steele are vying to lead the new GOP. Gingrich leading a ‘new GOP’ is a real oxymoron. We don’t need another tired old conservative standard bearer. We need Michael Steele: A battle to take the reins of the Republican National Committee is taking off between former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former […]
