Democrats Get A Taste Of Obama’s Arrogance

  Hat/Tip to Jonah Goldberg at Right Wing News. Even the slow to realize Liberals are finally beginning to get the idea that our President is a monumental asshole…to everyone.   These are not good times for the Republic (and if you laughed or scratched your head at me calling America a republic, I rest my case). – Jonah Goldberg But they are amusing times, at least for those of us capable of extracting some measure of mirth and schadenfreude from the president’s predicament. With the sand running out on the Obama presidency, it’s finally dawning on the president’s friends […]

Who ‘Da Best Prez?

Which President Did The Best Job During His First Six Years In The White House?   Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and imperfectamerica at Red State. . . .

Former Arkansas Gov. Turned Fox Talk Show Host, Mike Huckabee Just Launched His White House Bid

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. So the tally of GOP nominee-hopefuls grows longer with nearly each passing day. We’re up to a half dozen already and it’s not even summer time, yet. At least it cannot be said that the GOP has shallow bench this time… POTUS: For the GOP: Ted Cruz Marco Rubio Rand Paul Dr. Ben Carson Carly Fiorina Mike Huckabee For the Dems: Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders Will Huckabee get the nomination this time? If so, can he beat Hillary? Mike Huckabee on Tuesday told Americans he wants to take the country from hope to higher ground as he […]

GOP Rep Introduces Bill To Gut EPA

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal and Timothy Cama at The Hill. It may pass, but it’ll never get signed by Obama. A House Republican wants to cut 13 programs at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), including all of its grants and its ability to regulate ground-level ozone and carbon dioxide. Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) introduced a bill, the Wasteful EPA Programs Elimination Act, which he said is a money-saving measure, citing a Heritage Foundation forecast that it would save $7.5 billion over 10 years. “As a fiscal conservative, I believe Washington should be respectful of taxpayers’ dollars and live […]

Carly Fiorina: ‘Yes, I Am Running For President’

    Hat/Tip to Newsmax. Once again, to recap who is officially running for POTUS: For the GOP: Ted Cruz Marco Rubio Rand Paul Dr. Ben Carson For the Dems: Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders   Fiorina ran an unsuccessful campaign to unseat California Democrat Barbara Boxer. Carson gained political fame when he criticized President Barack Obama at the 2013 National Prayer Breakfast while the president was sitting a few feet away. Fiorina served as an executive at AT&T and Lucent before assuming the leadership role at HP, then America’s largest computer maker, in 1999. That business experience, along with her […]

Ben Carson Is Running For President

Hat/Tip to Newsmax. So officially it’s now: For the GOP: Ted Cruz Marco Rubio Rand Paul Dr. Ben Carson For the Dems: Hillary Clinton Bernie Sanders He made a splash on the national scene when he politely, but effectively ripped Obama’s nanny state policies to shreds. Now he’s asking you to vote for him for POTUS. Retired surgeon Ben Carson declared his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination Monday, resting his longshot bid on his vision of the nation as “a place of dreams” where people can thrive when freed from an overbearing government. Carson, the only African-American in the race, […]

Straw Poll: Sarah – 79%, Hillary – 7%

Hat/Tip to Lance Thate at Of course this is a very unscientific poll, but it makes you wonder what a head-to-head match up between the two of them would be like, huh? Hillary Decimated by Palin in Today’s Poll The media and party polls continue to play each other off with this candidate or that one being beaten by Hillary. When another candidate beats Hillary, there is the proverbial declaration of “within the margin of error too close to call”. This is a never ending theme to fill airtime. The Town Criers ask you to consider their random poll. […]

Why Democrats Are The Party Of Slavery And Victimization

Hat/Tip to Alfonzo Rachel at PJ Media. Alfonzo Rachel speaks truth to power and lays it on the line. He isn’t afraid to call a spade a spade, and he can back up all his words with facts. Take the time to watch this video, you’ll be glad you did. . . .

Is There A Universe Where The GOP “Leaders” Aren’t Morons? I Want To Live In That One

    Once upon a time I naively thought that electing a Republican congress would put the brakes on Obama’s lawless destruction of our once-great nation. Silly me. Why did these bozos just vote to confirm Loretta Lynch as Attorney General? Do they want more gun control? Do they like seeing unlimited late-term abortions? Do they enjoy it when “law enforcement” seizes private property without due process? I suppose that they do. Which makes Mitch McConnell no better than Dingy Harry. Need more proof of that? OK, Ole Mitch is gonna bail out ObamaCare’s subsidies if SCOTUS strikes them down. […]

Comedian Louis CK Apologizes To Sarah Palin: Fear And The Far Left

  In 2010 comedian Louis CK took it upon himself to publish some pretty nasty, and some would say vile tweets about Tea Party favorite, Sarah Palin. Five years later he meets her at the 40th Anniversary of Saturday Night Live and no one could have predicted the results. Actually, she approached him. She didn’t do so to take him to task over his past verbal attacks, but to simply tell him that she thought he was funny and admired his work. “I’ve never in a million years apologized for anything I’ve said,” C.K. told Howard Stern in a recent interview. […]

James Carville Says Romney Will ‘Get Back In The Race’ After Jeb Drops Out

Hat/Tip to Karen Tumulty and Robert Costa at The Washington Post. With only Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio on the Republican side and Hillary Clinton on the Democratic side OFFICIALLY in the race for the 2016 Presidential Election, speculation still abounds. Saint Anselm College has been a required stop on the pilgrimage for presidential aspirants, going at least as far back as John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon more than a half-century ago. When former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R) made his first speech here on Friday, he pointed to the historic photos on the wall. “I’m […]

Second Amendment? Ted Cruz Smacks Down A Reporter – Hard

Hat/Tip to Mike Miller at Doug Ross @ Journal. On the 2nd Amendment Ted Cruz Mops The Floor With Reporter’s Attempt At A “Gotcha Question.” You’ve gotta love how he so Reaganesguely deconstructs, and thus takes the power away from the typical far left ‘gotcha’ question.   At a recent event, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz was asked the following question: “In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, a statistic surfaced putting support for background checks at 90%. Did you go against the want of the nation with your vote against Manchin-Toomey (a bill that would have required background […]

Run Rubio, Run!: The Florida Senator Bets It All On Becoming POTUS

Hat/Tip to Ken McIntyre at The Daily Signal. Marco Rubio said that if he ran for President, that he wouldn’t seek reelection to the United States Senate. You have to admire that type of integrity. There’s a great piece at The Daily Signal, by Ken McIntyre. It’s a very thorough article, covering everything from Rubio’s family to his stance on foreign policy. Here it is, in its entirety: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Marco Rubio, little more than four years into his first term in the Senate, is back home in Miami today. The Republican is scheduled to announce for higher office again, this time […]

Ted Cruz Is Serious…And So Is His Fundraising Machine

Hat/Tip to Rebecca Berg at The Washington Examiner. Maybe Senator Cruz should give a hat/tip to Jeb Bush… In his first week as a presidential candidate, the Texas senator raked in more than $4 million for his campaign account, including $1.5 million from major donors, and he has already brought in hundreds of thousands more dollars since. A herd of super PACs supporting Cruz brought in another $31 million, Bloomberg reported Wednesday — an eye-popping sum that has stunned more than a few competing Republicans. Bush, a former Florida governor whose powerful family has deep roots in Texas, has factored […]

Ever Look At Ted Cruz’s Resume?

Hat/Tip to The Reaganite Republican. There’s an old saying about knowing you’re over the target when you start taking flak. Well Ted Cruz must be all over that target because he’s being attacked from the Left AND the Right. From that tired old meme about him not being a natural born citizen to the argument that we can’t elect another freshman Senator without any experience. Well, hopefully this article from The Reaganite Republican in 2013 will help quell the ‘lack of experience’ crowd a bit. Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 – May 2008, Cruz was the first Hispanic Solicitor […]

No, George Washington DIDN’T Say America Should Stay Out Of Foreign Affairs

Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. A great piece on the Father of our Country. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ With the talk of how bad Islam is for civilization and the question of just what to do about it, we are seeing those lightly informed about American history claiming that our founders–in particular George Washington–warned us to stay out of “foreign entanglements.” In fact, however, Washington neither said this, nor meant for such a policy to be enacted. Many on the left and the isolationist right try to use the father of our country to support their ideas against the GOP […]

After Obama Slobbers All Over The Mullahs, Ayatollah Calls On U.S. Youth To Join Jihad

  Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. So despite all the brown-nosing, sucking up, and general, all around ass kissing President Obama has done to the Ayatollah of Iran, he still urges our own kids to join his jihad. Way to go, Obama. On Friday, President Barack Obama slobbered all over himself to come to the aide of the Iranian Mullahs–mostly to spite our Israeli allies. But on the very same day Obama gave the Mullahs his undying love, the Ayatollah urged our own kids to join the world wide movement of violent, Islamist jihad. On Friday, Obama disgorged […]

Five Reactions To The Announcement That Ted Cruz Will Campaign For The Republican Presidential Nomination

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Whether you’re a Ted Cruz fan or not, this is an excellent piece from over at Doug Ross Journal. Honestly, I’m sick and tired of the establishment (both the Democrat-Media Complex and the old, bloated, sputtering GOP crony capitalists) telling us who our candidates should be. I support Ted Cruz for President. Steve Deace: Traditionally if you want to win the GOP nomination you have to be one of the three tickets punched out of Iowa, and there is no doubt Ted Cruz is a serious threat to be one of those three. He […]
