The times are a changin’: If it ever hopes to see the White House again, GOP must tap into growing Hispanic demographic

It’s really quite simple. If the Republicans want to win a presidential election, they have to win the support of the only constituency that is large enough to make a significant difference and is actually expanding. The black population is not growing and, even declining, in percentage terms, and white upper-middle class families have so […]

Obama as he makes "revenge" remark.

The better man lost the election

There will be scores of books written and words piled up alongside the mounting American debt to fathom the results and consequences of the 2012 U.S. election. In columns of such limited space as these, one can only suggestively wink at, as I once wrote, the complexity of subjects such as this requiring treatment at […]

Hi Barack!

Good luck, America (you’ll need it)

And here I believed that Obamacare, chronic 8 percent unemployment, stagnant economic growth, crippling spending and the potential for more would sink a sitting president. Boy howdy, was I ever wrong. I take small comfort that people far smarter than I am were much more mistaken than I was – Michael Barone and George Will […]

Ronald Reagan

Good News?! Maybe now conservatives will finally have learned the lesson: Go bold. Not pastel.

It took two candidates, but maybe it will have sunk in this time. Going with that so-called “moderate” and “electable” candidate has failed yet again. It always does.  For those science-loving conservatives like me, it can quite literally be called a scientifically provable fact now, having been tried over again with the same outcome. I’m […]

I Hope This Is The Last Column I Ever Have To Write About Bronco Bamma

This past week a YouTube video of a crying four-year-old little girl named Abigail went viral. In the video Abby’s mom asks her why she’s so sad. Abigail replies through a steady stream of tears and mucus that she’s “tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney.” Well, little sister, I feel your pain. Now, mind […]

Obama, Biden and Economic Patriotism

Perhaps the clearest example that Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has abandoned all hope is their slap-dash effort at articulating an economic agenda for a second term. Specifically, in response to trillion-dollar deficits, an imminent tax cliff, and the largest debt in the history of planet Earth, the president issued an absurd little pamphlet populated with […]

Charles_Krauthammer

A column to read, ponder, and keep: Charles Krauthammer’s Nov 1 2012.

Regular readers know I like Charles Krauthammer’s columns. This latest one is a must-read, and a keeper. Pass it around. Nearly every paragraph has a quotable line or two. Here’s a few paragraphs from the mid-section of “ The Choice “: … Think about that. Health care is one-sixth of the economy. Education is the future. […]

The puzzle in U.S. presidential elections

The role of the electoral college in American politics is unique, indirectly electing the U.S. president every four years. The American constitution provides for each state of the union to have a list of electors chosen by the state legislators equal to the number of elected representatives sent from the states to the U.S. Congress. […]

Powerful Video of Two Objective Analysts Slamming Obama/Mainstream Media Coverup of Benghazi

Just uploaded this to the BoldColors.net YouTube Channel: An investigative reporter, Judith Miller (Pulitzer Prize-awarded former New York Times reporter), and Kirsten Powers, a Democratic Party spokesman, on Fox News Channel, just moments ago, bashed the mainstream media and Obama administration over the Benghazi coverup. Both acknowledge a shared coverup between the media and the […]

The Presidential Race is Over, Cue the Conspiracy Theories

This race is over, but the conspiracy theories are about to begin. And, boy howdy, are things going to get ugly. To wit, Mitt Romney will defeat Barack Obama for the presidency on November 6, after which there will be hysterical blowback. The election result is quantifiable, with Romney consistently leading in national tracking polls, […]

Obama Calls Mitt Romney a BSer? Now That’s Funny!

You know what’s funny? In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Obama called Mitt Romney a “bullsh*tter” … that’s what’s funny. Now, it’s not funny in a ha-ha sense but funny in a you-gotta-be-kidding-me sense of the word. Obama accusing Romney of bunkum? Talk about the putz calling the kettle black. Obama’s entire life and rise […]

Bad egg about to roll out of White House

In less than two weeks, Americans will either elect a new president, or give the incumbent a second term. In following the latest polls, one can observe that since the first debate on Oct. 3, support among likely voters across the country has shifted in favour of Mitt Romney. The Gallup and Rasmussen polls have […]

That’s Barack Obama. And, no BS, we don’t like him.

I’m going to start this on a high horse because I earned it. And it makes me feel good to pretend to be above the rest. Like Barack Obama thinks he actually is. As René Descartes, the great French philosopher said, possibly while riding an actual horse in France, “Cogito ergo sum” or I think, […]

Benghazi: Obama and His Ilk Hung Chris Stevens and Others Out to Dry

This past Friday the State Department released internal docs showing that Chris Stevens, U.S. Ambassador to hell’s corridor in Libya, begged Obama’s boys in D.C. to ramp up security in Benghazi. And, as we all know now, he got nothing from the State Department but was allowed to be tortured and murdered by “democracy seekers” […]
