GOP Wave Is Here – How Big Is It?

I almost titled this post the “Anti-Democrat, Anti-BigGovernment, Anti-Obama Wave is Here”, because this election is not about wild support for the GOP and their brand of big government. It is clearly a referendum on the Activist Government Bungling produced by Obama, Reid and Pelosi since 2008. A historic bungling covered up by the liberal […]

Dems-GOP Tied For Control Of Senate

While I tend to watch the RCP senate map to see where the November elections are heading, I think the Pollster.com senate picture is actually more accurate. The snapshot below (click to enlarge) is from today, and it represents the current state of play in the Senate much better in my opinion. Pollster.com shows the […]

Crystal Ball Turning GOP Red

Larry Sabato is out with updated projections for the 2010 election cycle and things keeping getting worse for the Dems. In the House, Sabato has moved 10 races from ‘toss up‘ to ‘leans GOP‘ – all of them Dems. Long time incumbent: 13 term Kanjorski of PA 11 is on this list, as is long […]

White House Finally Awakes From Fantasyland

It has been a long time since President Obama promised in 2009 that: … this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the […]

There Is An Anti-Dem, Anti-Big Gov Wave Out There

The Gallup poll that came out yesterday showing a historic lead for the GOP in the generic ballot test is not the only indication that the Democrats are in the cross hairs of the American public. In fact, sitting next to a commentary by Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight fame was an interesting graph, which I […]

RIP Senator Byrd

While I did not agree with Senator Byrd on a lot of things, you have to admire the man for his tenacity and his understanding of the Senate rules (and his occasional twisting of them).  Mitch McConnell actually said it well of Byrd: The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, said Byrd “combined a […]

Writing On The Wall For Dems This Fall

Democrats, you folks screwed up. You went too far left, you focused on the wrong issues (you may recall people need good jobs or everything else goes to crap).

Will Democrats Heed The MA Wake Up Call?

America is a centrist nation. It some areas it leans center left and in others center right. In strange pockets knitted together by gerrymandering there are instances of far right and far left cults.
