50 years ago today: Ronald Reagan, A Time for Choosing

Posted by  ▪  October 27, 2014

Whatever happened to the IRS targeting scandal investigation?

Posted by  ▪  October 27, 2014

Another reason taking back the Senate is so important.

It seems like it has fallen off the media radar completely. Because Ebola. Because ISIS. Because 2014 Midterms. Because Obama. Because the Imperial Bureaucracy. This video just released by the House Oversight Committee provides a good timeline of events: After the midterms, time to ramp up the investigation. Which is why taking back control of the Senate is so…

How bad a candidate is Martha Coakley? Boston Globe endorses Republican for Gov

Posted by  ▪  October 27, 2014

May a thousand Martha Coakleys bloom in the Democratic Party.

Pigs flying? Hell freezing over? Yup. Boston Globe endorses Republican Charlie Baker over Democrat Martha Coakley. Effective activist government isn’t built on good intentions. To provide consistently good results, especially for the state’s most vulnerable and troubled residents, agencies need to focus on outcomes, learn from their errors, and preserve and replicate approaches…

Gallup: Americans Still Don’t Like Congress

Posted by  ▪  October 27, 2014

What does it mean for midterms?

Candidates have been criss-crossing their respective districts for well over a year now, laying out their platforms and making promises about how they’ll bring change to the offices they hope to hold.

Do Republicans have enough momentum heading into midterms?

Posted by  ▪  October 26, 2014

Now, to beat the margin of error.

With just 9 days to go until Election Day, consultants and pollsters are busy running the numbers and developing eleventh hour strategies for candidates running for Senate in key swing states.

Don’t worry, there’s always Hillary. Oh, wait.

(I’m just going to post an excerpt of this. There is nothing I could add that would make it any more satisfying to read. So I will not put my own thoughts between Thomas Frank at Salon.com playing the sad trombone and the readers.) Thomas Frank: “We are such losers”: ….Barack Obama…

Democrats’ failures open doors for Republican candidates.

Working in the Texas campaign world over the past few years has given me a good idea about how conservatives across the political spectrum feel about GOP candidates wading into the complicated world of multicultural outreach. Much of the work I’ve done since last September has been working toward the goal of…
