Still Perry-curious

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012
Sure, let’s start the speculation about 2016.  It helps take our minds off of Tuesday. And we need to plan ahead for the race against Hillary.  (It will be Hillary, don’t you know.  Bill didn’t do all that for Obama.) As longtime readers know, we were Perry-curious in the summer of 2011.  We…

Boston Globe already has Elizabeth Warren buyer’s remorse

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012

“Thursday was disrespectful”

Elizabeth Warren continues to treat the press with the same dismissiveness she did during the campaign, similar to how she treated the Cherokee women and Native American DNC delegates who tried to meet with her. But now that she’s elected, even Boston Globe columnists are willing to write about it (emphasis mine): For the…

The civil rights issue of our time

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2012
From Amy: I know you don’t usually address abortion topics on your blog, but in the off-chance you do, here is a car for you. I saw it in a Wendy’s parking lot here in Aurora, CO, a few weeks ago. Also, I know you normally black out the license plate, but I…

Mood

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2012
This was going to be my losing song. But I forgot to play it Tuesday night. Figures. You don’t want to know what my victory song was. (Actually, I think you know, but I can’t embed it because at least one reader emailed in the past that it might trigger epileptic seizures.)

Hope already on the horizon

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2012
I will have more in coming days on the flawed demographic narrative. You know, the one which liberals love to push particularly since Tuesday that because the percentage of non-white people is growing, Republicans are doomed.  Because skin color is destiny to them. Keep at that math.  Please. Democrats now convincing themselves that “math” means they’ll…

Learning lessons from a failed campaign does not a circular firing squad make

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2012
Some amount of firing squad is needed in light of the loss this week of the presidential campaign. Oddly enough, I’m not aiming at Mitt Romney himself. I agree with many commentators who say Romney emerged as a better candidate than expected, someone who came around to articulating a vision worthy of a Republican…

Get ready for a stronger Conservatism

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2012
The election is over, and from the sound of all the major news networks, so is the Conservative movement. Call me an optimist if you wish but I find that to be a laughable proposition. Largely, I think this because everyone is in post-election meltdown mode. Democrats are hailing the victory as the…

Operation Demoralize Post-Election Edition

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2012

Concern trolling on steroids

Introspection and reevaluation — and even a bit of circular firing squad — are necessary after an electoral loss. But I’m not buying the end of conservatism argument immediately being peddled by pro-Obama media types.  It’s just a variation on Operation Demoralize. There is a full blown attempt to cement in the popular consciousness…

“I like a country where people bust their tuchus”

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2012
I’m still gathering my thoughts on the “meaning” of Tuesday.  For now, I’m not seeing half as much meaning as most others. Until my further posts on the subject, this segment below by Dennis Miller (via Hot Air) is worth a listen. Miller makes the point that we are heading, if not already…

Barack Obama Makes History: the Wrong Kind

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2012
Yesterday morning—the morning after—I posted this: Barack Obama is the first two-term president in at least 100 years to get fewer votes in his reelection than he did the first time out. (FDR did less well in both his third and fourth terms.) I’d written those words late on election night, too exhausted…

Viva Italia

From a reader abroad: I live in Italy with my wife. My parents are visiting for a month, and we were in Pisa yesterday. My dad, a Korea vet, loved the stickers on this car. There may be hope yet for Europe. Love your site, though I rarely comment due to concerns about…

Obama supporters in Chicago celebrate expansion of government

Posted by  ▪  November 7, 2012
Last night after news of Obama’s reelection was announced, I headed into downtown Chicago and came across groups of supporters celebrating. The video below was taken of a group that gathered outside the ABC studios. They spoke about how thrilled they were to see that government would be expanding. One man said…

The Rouzer/McIntyre recount in NC-7

As we’ve reported already, Operation Counterweight member, David Rouzer, is heading for a recount in North Carolina’s hotly contested 7th Congressional District. From the News & Observer: Longtime Democratic incumbent Congressman Mike McIntyre and Republican challenger state Sen. David Rouzer are headed to a recount. Merely 507 votes separated the candidates, according to unofficial…
