Will someone tell Restore Our Future PAC to stop the anti-Santorum ads

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2012
I have tweeted about this before, but tonight there were at least two anti-Santorum ads run on Fox News by Restore our Future, the pro-Romney PAC. It’s the Big Spender ad which now has been taken down from YouTube, but still plays on national television: Will you stop already. I realize you probably made the…

Providence update – big union concessions prevent bankruptcy

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2012
I’ve written numerous times over the past two years about the horrible fiscal mess David Cicilline (D-RI01) left behind in Providence when he was Mayor, and how he concealed the problem from voters during his 2010 congressional race. The city has been teetering on the verge of bankruptcy, but a tentative deal…

Big corporations are not your friend (Wal-Mart caves to Color of Change on ALEC edition)

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2012
Because large corporations are under continual attack from the left, there is a tendency for the right to think of big corporations as ideological compatriots. They are not, at least not if they are public.  By and large they are large entities run by politically weak people who will cave into the…

Anger at Elizabeth Warren spreads to non-Cherokee American Indians

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2012
The objections of Cherokees to Elizabeth Warren’s false claims of Cherokee ancestry have made the news for weeks, first when genealogist Twila Barnes demanded that Warren tell the truth, and just yesterday with the formation of a new group of Cherokees demanding that Warren stop claiming Cherokee ancestry. Warren’s response has been…

It’s Elizabeth Warren’s and Harvard’s federal filings, stupid

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2012
Elizabeth Warren has played hard to get on the issue of her supposed Cherokee ancestry. Warren only admits to information after someone has the documents to prove her story wrong, and then her story changes.  She originally denied having any idea why Harvard touted her as Native American, and denied using that…

Bring it home, Wisconsin

Posted by  ▪  May 31, 2012
Remember that next Tuesday is the recall election in Wisconsin. A good Marquette poll yesterday deflated hopes on the left that the recall race was tightening.  But Walker is not taking any chances, releasing this ad against Barrett: More devastating news for the recall effort is that public employee union enrollment has dropped by…

Gov. Deval Patrick runs interference for Elizabeth Warren on false Cherokee claim

Posted by  ▪  May 30, 2012
This is beyond bizarre.  I had heard about Deval Patrick saying something about how the people of Massachusetts don’t care about Elizabeth Warren’s false claim of Cherokee heritage, but until I saw this video (via Michael Patrick Leahy), I didn’t realize just how bad the press conference was. There is something seriously wrong…

New Marquette poll shows Walker up 7

Posted by  ▪  May 30, 2012
Don’t get cocky, as he says, but a new Marquette poll shows Scott Walker up 7 over Tom Barrett: A new Marquette Law School poll finds Governor Scott Walker with 52 percent to Mayor Tom Barrett with 45 percent among 600 likely voters in next week’s recall election. That lead falls slightly…

Elizabeth Warren’s biggest whopper of them all

Posted by  ▪  May 30, 2012
There is something frighteningly Obama-like in Elizabeth Warren’s self-descriptions.  Warren paints a personal narrative of rising from poverty and being the descendant of the brutalized Cherokee tribe, when in reality neither was true (and irony of ironies, she’s the descendant of someone who likely brutalized the Cherokee). Her academic work carried forward the victim…

How does Cruz win over some Dewhurst supporters

Posted by  ▪  May 30, 2012
Despite being vastly outspent and having the Republican establishment in Texas against him, Ted Cruz lost to David Dewhurst by only 10 points.  That’s a far closer match-up than most polls were predicting.  Just a couple of months ago Dewhurst was up by a factor of 2-3 times the ultimate margin. That’s…
