“They fear him with a great fear, and with extremely good reason”

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

Great analysis of Nancy Pelosi’s threatened blackmail of Newt Gingrich, from Bill Quick of Daily Pundit (via The Other McCain).  It sure does feel good to read and imagine: You know what, though?  She’s got bupkus that will make any

We know how they would be treated. Another one from Jason, who writes: Whenever I see the “coexisters” I always wonder how they would be treated on the streets of Cairo…taken a couple of weeks ago in Greenville, NC

Posted by  ▪  December 6, 2011

Today it seems like it’s all about Newt

Q.  Who was the last person to actually cut government? As pointed out at C4P: Rush is correct. Newt was indeed the last person to substantially cut Government and execute reform. However; what folks seem to confuse that with is

Message received

Posted by  ▪  December 6, 2011

Someone got the message that the current “hide and don’t seek me” strategy was not working. Now when Romney goes on Glenn Beck like Newt just did, then I’ll really be impressed.  But until then, this will have to do:

Wow, just wow. Republican Mark Reed is running for Congress in California’s 30th District against Democratic Congressmen Brad Sherman and Howard Berman in a new district resulting from redistricting.  Reed is a conservative, Tea Party backer. Reed is making a big deal

If Newt survives the next two weeks

Posted by  ▪  December 6, 2011

The latest polling has caused an avalanche of attacks on Newt from just about every corner: Newt had an extensive interview with Glenn Beck (audio and transcript).  Beck hammered Newt on all the known Newt policy issues, and all of the

Romney’s unknown unknowns

Posted by  ▪  December 6, 2011

I’ve posted about “unknown unknowns” before, as it is a structure I use in class to discuss how to build a case.  At a press conference about Iraq Donald Rumsfeld famously said: “[T]here are known knowns; there are things we know

The case for Rick Perry remains the same (Reader Poll)

Posted by  ▪  December 6, 2011

Prior to Rick Perry announcing he would run for President I brought on Katie Thompson to make the case for Perry.  Katie now is a leader of Students for Perry, and I predict, a future mover and shaker in Republican circles.

Romney’s “hide and hope they don’t seek me” media strategy

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011

LI reader and blogger Jeff Dobbs has a post up about Romney’s media strategy, which can be termed “hide and hope they don’t seek me” (that’s my term).  Jeff compares it to Obama’s strategy in 2008 of carefully controlling his

Defending Iran is where credibility goes to die

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011

When someone finds himself so in need of criticizing the U.S. that he ends up defending the brutal Iranian regime which for over 30 years has funded anti-U.S. and anti-Israel groups around the globe and sought to export Islamist fundamentalism, then

The delusion continues

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011

I previously have highlighted the treatment of the “Arab Street” by NY Times columnist Roger Cohen in the midst of the Arab Spring protests, many of which revealed an open and ugly anti-Semitic side: In the Middle East you expect the worst.
