The Obama Implosion – Updated

Published by under All General Discussions

Final Update: Jennifer Rubin has probably summarized the result of the stimulus bill the best today: The president seems likely to win the battle but lose the argument — and the war. The battle is the stimulus bill which passed the Senate on Tuesday and will clear the conference committee this week. But the argument […]

Moderate Man Of Steele Takes RNC Helm, New GOP Emerging

  There is hope for the GOP, it has turned another corner and is back on a positive track. The GOP has begun the necessary process of ‘purifying’ itself from the unreliable far right (or ‘true conservatives’) who spend more time insulting fellow conservatives who don’t toe their line than making conservative progress in manageable […]

The Conservative Implosion

Published by under All General Discussions

All you need to know about how badly the purity wars crippled the GOP is to look at this graph: The chart shows how the far right was able to run off those nasty moderate RINOs and push them into the Democrat camp. That includes some serious conservatives like the Anchoress, and keeps conservative independents […]

The Obidiot Arises, Opinion Polls Start Falling

Published by under All General Discussions

It has not taken Obama long to destroy the image of hope and change he presented the American People. As Pew just noted yesterday the top issues for this country – per the voters – is the Economy, Jobs and Terrorism. To date all of Obama’s actions have been irrelevant or undermining to these issues. […]

US Hispanics Up For Grabs

Hispanics are learning a harsh lesson. I have two interesting reads about how the left and right are blowing it with this key demographic group. Let’s begin with the GOP’s issues with Hispanics: Many in the Republican Party are addicted to the divisive practice of exploiting nativist fears to scare up votes. 
As with any […]

GOP As The Party Of “American Families”

Published by under All General Discussions

Sorry for the light posting, but there has been little real news and a lot of boring chatter from the Political Industrial Complex recently. Really had nothing to say about the echo chamber echoes. That and an increased work load pretty much stopped the posting briefly. I have been thinking about what the GOP could […]

The Day After

It looks like the state polls were more accurate than I had hoped (which brings me to my retirement as a cynic on polls). Drudge has the national popular vote tally as: OBAMA: 59,524,759 MCCAIN: 53,553,241 I am sure this is not a complete tally, there were a lot of close states, but it is […]

Drill, Baby Drill! – GOP Wins A Big One

Finally, the do-nothing  Congress did something good by ….  doing nothing! Democrats have decided to allow a quarter-century ban on drilling for oil off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts to expire next week, conceding defeat in a months-long battle with the White House and Republicans set off by $4 a gallon gasoline prices this summer. House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey, […]

Do-nothing Democrat Congress Plans To Deal With Financial Crisis By Doing … Nothing

Boy, oh boy. If you ever wanted to underscore how bad the Democrat Congress is just look at their plan to adjourn and leave the economic mess unaddressed: The Democratic-controlled Congress, acknowledging that it isn’t equipped to lead the way to a solution for the financial crisis and can’t agree on a path to follow, […]

GOP Need Not Fear Moderate And Independent Conservatives

For some reason there are those on the right still trying to enforce purity of thought on the conservative coalition, and are willing to throw John McCain under the bus to ensure the GOP is rid of what some folks love to disparagingly refer to as RINOs (Republicans In Name Only). Being an Independent Conservative […]
