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.

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? What if this person also possesses twice the executive governing experience as the GOP’s current front-runner, Mitt Romney, and is broadly considered the best Republican governor in recent decades? Finally, […]

Romney campaign dragged down by big boatload of delegates

Mitt Romney won more than twice as many delegates on Super Tuesday as Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum. The Non-Fox Media’s take-away is that Romney suffered a major setback Tuesday night. No matter what happens, Barack Obama’s boosters in the NFM portray it as a debilitating blow to Romney. On Nov. 7, The New York […]

The Problem With Santorum

Even when I agree with Rick Santorum, listening to him argue the point almost makes me change my mind.I also wonder why he’s running for president, rather than governor, when the issues closest to his heart are family-oriented matters about which the federal government can, and should, do very little. 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 […]

A Naughty Newt, A Bitter Ex and Misplaced Rage

As a Christian, I will neither defend nor excuse Newt’s past adultery. That said, after watching his ex-wife Marianne go off on him on ABC, as a man, I now get why he supposedly wanted an “open marriage.” Holy crikey. That chick is scary! Hell hath no fury like a furry woman. That’s one angry, […]

Strongest case against Romney a few sheets short of a ream

Mitt Romney has spent more than 20 years in private enterprise, making thousands of business decisions affecting hundreds of companies that led to more than 100,000 new jobs and billions of dollars for employees and investors. So you can see why the left despises him. Among Romney’s thousands of business decisions, the one I gather […]
