Romney Doing the Job the Republican Establishment Won’t Do

The actual Republican Establishment –- political consultants, The Wall Street Journal, corporate America, former Bush advisers and television pundits — are exhorting Mitt Romney to flip-flop on his very non-Establishment position on illegal immigration. Both as governor of Massachusetts and as a presidential candidate, Romney has supported a fence on the border, E-Verify to ensure […]

Possibly the best RNC anti-Obama ad so far

I enjoyed this one, which might be the first one which seems to embrace Mitt Romney as the new leader of both the Republic Party and soon, the United States: Of course I haven’t been educated by Frank Luntz yet as to its validity and effectiveness. So. Possibly related posts: Question Obama’s association with anti-American […]

Stick a Fork in Santorum… He’s Done

I think the fog of the campaign war is getting to Santorum because he said last Thursday in San Antone that there is “little difference” between Romney and Obama, and we might as well stick with Barack. “Little” my skinny white backside! Dial down, Richard. I think Santorum should have stayed down in Puerto Rico […]

Send Lizzie Borden to Washington

Any Republican governor of a blue state who manages to balance the budget without raising taxes should be a nominee for Mount Rushmore, to say nothing of president. Mitt Romney was governor of a state so blue, it’s North Korea with more Irish people, and he balanced the budget without raising taxes. Even Ronald Reagan […]

Time to Deploy Jeb

What if the Republican Party could field a presidential nominee able to guarantee victory in the state of Florida, and perhaps across the entire South?

Finally, […]

It’s strange that Santorum doesn’t […]

What’s their problem with Romney?

As governor of one of the most liberal states in the union, Mitt Romney did something even Ronald Reagan didn’t do as governor of California: He balanced the budget without raising taxes. Romney became deeply pro-life as governor of the aforementioned liberal state and vetoed an embryonic stem cell bill. (Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich lobbied President […]

Would Romney and Gingrich like a cookie?

This is about as good a line as I’ve seen if you’re betwixt Romney and Gingrich: The Case For Romney Jonah Goldberg ” … A President Romney would be on a very short leash. A President Gingrich would probably chew through his leash in the first 10 minutes of his presidency and wander off into […]

Three Cheers for Romneycare!

If only the Democrats had decided to socialize the food industry or housing, Romneycare would probably still be viewed as a massive triumph for conservative free-market principles — as it was at the time. It’s not as if we had a beautifully functioning free market in health care until Gov. Mitt Romney came along and […]

Re-elect Obama: Vote Newt!

To talk with Gingrich supporters is to enter a world where words have no meaning. They denounce Mitt Romney as a candidate being pushed on them by “the Establishment” — with “the Establishment” defined as anyone who supports Romney or doesn’t support Newt. Gingrich may have spent his entire life in Washington and be so […]
