Lame Ducks And Sour Grapes

“Nancy Pelosi claimed Thursday she didn’t know who ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber is, after several tapes surfaced showing him gloating about how the law was written to take advantage of the stupidity of the American voter. Problem is, Gruber’s analysis of the law was cited extensively by her office back in 2009. Pelosi, the House Democratic leader, tried to downplay Gruber’s role during a press conference on Thursday. She claimed she doesn’t know who he is, and that he didn’t help write the law. ‘Let’s put him aside,’ she said.” – Fox News “Ye have taken my silver and my […]

America: She Loves Him Not

“With votes still being counted in more than a dozen congressional districts, Democrats were on track to shed 13 to 16 seats, an outcome that would leave the party with as few as 185 of the chamber’s 435 seats. The last time Democrats had such a small House delegation, Herbert Hoover was president, Charlie Chaplin was making movies, and Alka Seltzer was just hitting the shelves.”– Politico “Shellacked and thumped by an angry electorate, President Obama declared to every American who voted in Tuesday’s elections—and to those who’ve checked out of the political process—”I hear you.”  And then he ignored […]

Election Day: Two Ruthless Politicians From American History

  With the gridlocked Congress’ approval rating consistently staying in the single digits more than the wind chill at Lambeau Field, it’s only natural for people to look back lovingly at years gone by when politicians supposedly knew how to get things done. Usually these screeds of nostalgia focus more on days when bipartisanship was popular. You know, the days when hard drinking men in smoky backrooms scratched each other’s backs and reached across the aisle and employed various other vaguely sexual metaphors to pass some legislation. But there’s another way to view the bygone era of politicians doing more […]

Quarantining Obama

“White House officials are preemptively spinning a midterm defeat, and they’re using their own fantasies to do it. They’re starting to blame candidates for not supporting President Obama enough.” – Josh Kraushaar “In a land as philosophically and politically divided as our country is, any time 64 percent agree on anything it’s time to take notice. Sixty-four percent of people polled by Politico say America is ‘out of control.’ Given the ever-growing list of crises piling up on us, it’s a wonder that 64 percent isn’t higher.” – Steve Tefft “We are witnessing the total collapse of a bad idea. […]

CNN Poll: 70% Of Voters Are Angry At Direction The Country Is Headed…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and CNN. The “Hope and Change” that Barack Obama rode into Washington DC on seems to have evaporated, leaving him to face a fully GOP controlled Congress for the last two years of his tenure as President. Poll after poll is showing that all Americans are getting fed up with Obama’s globalization tendencies and his socialization schemes. Not a poll Democrats want to see with the November elections right around the corner… Via CNN: Washington (CNN) — Nearly 7 in 10 Americans are angry at the direction the country is headed and 53% of Americans disapprove of […]

Allen West Comes Forward With Evidence of Voter Fraud

What voter fraud? For another, in what looks to become a series of stories here at CH 2.0, we turn to former Representative from Florida, Colonel Allen West. The Conservative Tribune reports that voter fraud is more widespread than the left or the MSM would want us to believe.  No matter how hard you try to convince them, liberals are convinced that voter fraud is just some bogey man created in the minds of racist conservatives to justify implementing voter ID laws that disenfranchise black people. Of course, these people are out of touch with reality, as voter fraud is […]

ObamaCare: The Best Thing For The Conservative Movement Since Ronald Reagan

ObamaCare may accomplish what Republicans and Tea Party members could not. It may reverse the Road to Socialism that this country has been on for the better part of a century. (Source: Monty Pelerin’s World) With all due respect for one of my favorite pundits, Pelerin my be a tad optimistic to think the failure of ObamaCare could reverse this country’s journey down the Road to Socialism. But, I do agree that Obama’s legacy is going to take a serious hit as more and more young adults become aware of how badly they are being screwed by ObamaCare. Unfortunately, most […]

Democratic Party Government Shut Down Autopsy: Lies, Deception, and Did I Mention Lies?

As it had been breaking over the last 48 hours, we learned that the government shut down was planned for months in advance. In addition, we have some insights into who was working on it, and the motivation for it… Jarret is called “the night stalker” by some White House staffers because she is the only aide who regularly goes upstairs to the White House residence and “hangs” with the entire Obama family. It was Jarrett who advised Obama that voters would mostly blame Republicans if the federal government ground to a halt, providing a golden opportunity to swing back […]

How Republicans Can Win: Some Thoughts

Via Powerlineblog comes this excerpt from David Horowitz’s pamphlet “Go For the Heart: How Republicans Can Win”, which gives some good advice to those who would advance the protection of life, liberty, and property because out of the two parties only the Republican Party right now contains a sizable portion of people that are fighting for these values. From the pamphlet: …After voters re-elected an administration that added five trillion dollars to the nation’s debt, left 23 million Americans unemployed, surrendered Iraq to America’s enemy Iran, and enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to gain control of the largest country in the […]

Americans Wake with Lower Pay Checks: Obama to Blame

Elections have consequences kids, and one of them is apparently a lower pay check.  For all of Obama’s promises to never raise taxes on the middle class, something went wrong.  What went wrong, you ask?  Well, people believed Obama, that’s what went wrong! Wyblog has more… Apparently a lot of people were complaining about their paychecks being unexpectedly smaller. Here’s the explanation from ADP: The reduced 4.2% rate for employee Social Security taxes that was in effect for 2011 and 2012 has expired. The employee Social Security tax rate will return to 6.2% for 2013 wages up to the taxable […]

Eric Holder Speaks to NAACP Against Voter ID: Media had to Show Picture ID to Enter

In our modern society, picture ID is needed for quite a few things, like driving, for instance.  However, when it interferes with voter fraud (which clearly does not happen-not ever), it’s the most racist thing ever!  However, labor unions must have an exception from this… Apparently, it’s OK when the unions do it.  But what if the NAACP did it themselves?  GateWay Pundit has the answer… Via the Joe Pags Show : *******MEDIA ADVISORY******* ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER TO DELIVER REMARKS TOMORROW TO NAACP NATIONAL CONVENTION WASHINGTON – Attorney General Eric Holder will deliver remarks at the NAACP National Convention during the […]

Obama Campaign Cries About Being Outspent When Unions Have Spent Billions Since 2005

Yes friends, that’s billions with a “b.”  I regularly receive emails from the Obama propaganda squad (the official one, not MSNBC).  And, for my own amusement, I read them.  The latest theme is that they are going to be outspent by Romney.  However, ironically, it wasn’t unfair or tragic when Obama outspend McCain in 2008. At any rate, it appears that the evil rich are easily outstripped in spending by those perennial democrat allies, the union goons.  Doug Ross (no relation), has the details… The executive summary: political spending by labor unions blows away private contributions by the rich, the poor, and everyone in between: Organized […]

Unions Contributions Expected to Exceed 450 Million Dollars in the Coming Election

And, it’s really an opportunity.  But, before I explain that tidbit, let’s get some details on the spending, from the Politico… Top labor leaders say they expect to spend more than ever on both state and federal contests this year. And if recent elections are any indicator, unions could drop more than $450 million, which they reportedly doled out in the 2008 election. … The union playbook: safeguard Democratic governors’ seats, flip state legislatures and hamstring anti-union ballot initiatives. Kindly give the article a read, as it appears to be factual. So, what are we to take from this? 1.  The unions […]

The MSM is not Biased; The MSM is not Biased

Just keep saying it long enough, and the MSM really won’t be biased…right? I don’t think so. Isn’t it great when all the talking heads come out saying almost the exact same thing as the POTUS?   Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters has this video… It’s just a coincidence?  Yeah, and I have some magic beans to sell you. As for the claim itself, it reminded me of the recent “let’s reform Jimmy Carter’s image by saying he was productive.” effort.  Sadly, for this Congress, no amount of lying will repair their image.  Let’s take a quick look at their “accomplishments:” The […]
