Obama campaign unveils “Forward” slogan

Posted by  ▪  April 30, 2012
Today the Obama campaign unveiled “Forward,” a seven-minute video highlighting his campaign strategy for the election: Similar to the 2008 concept, “Change,” this one-word slogan captures a vague sense of movement without articulating a strategy, end, or principle. The movement this terms evokes is no more than a different state than we’re currently…

“a campus atmosphere that is unwelcoming” … to men

Posted by  ▪  April 30, 2012
It should be obvious to anyone who has attended almost any liberal arts college in the past 40 years that there is no War on Women on campuses.  Just the opposite is true; by almost all measures women have achieved numerical and political superiority on campus, yet the grievance studies and victim narrative…

Posted by  ▪  April 30, 2012
The Young Guns Network, and its YG Action Fund, were started by two former aides to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. The Young Guns have infuriated supporters of Richard Mourdock in the Indiana Senate primary race, as well as many conservatives who had no stake in the race, by spending over $100,000…

Dick Lugar to target cell phones near Mourdock events

Posted by  ▪  April 29, 2012
Dick Lugar has announced that his campaign will target cell phone users browsing the internet in zip codes where Richard Mourdock events are taking place. The targeted ads will repeat the misleading claim, already debunked by FactCheck.org, that Mourdock cheated on taxes.  This is yet another sign of Lugar desperation. Here’s the pertinent part…

It’s what I’m best at (19 years of schooling down the drain): Noted race relations expert Touré has thoughts on the racist mind based on a conversation he had with someone. In case you were wondering, the “isolated incidents of violence against whites by blacks, in which Trayvon Martin’s name has been reportedly invoked as a…

Reuters analysis of Obama failures abroad pretty much as expected

Posted by  ▪  April 29, 2012
It was those damn meteoric expectations, and the failure of those around him, such as the Secret Service agents who visited prostitutes in Colombia, and soldiers in Afghanistan who killed civilians and burned Korans. And that damn Congress: Karl Lemberg, one of thousands who thronged a Berlin park in July 2008 for a pre-election…

Pulling Romney across the finish line

Posted by  ▪  April 29, 2012
My sense of the talk shows this morning (which I usually don’t listen to but did today) is that the War on Women nonsense is completely dominating the current cycle and will for a long time. It’s complete and total AxelPlouffe BS, but it’s all the media talks about. The War on…

Maine Senate race – help!

Posted by  ▪  April 29, 2012
With Olympia Snowe retiring, this race seems particularly unpredictable with a strong third party showing from the former Governor, via The Hill: Democrats looking to replace retiring Sen. Olympia Snowe (R) in Maine have a delicate decision to make. If they back independent former Gov. Angus King, who stands the best chance at…

Dick Lugar’s Iran problem, Part 2: 2001 – one of only two Senators to oppose Iran-Libya Sanctions Act

Posted by  ▪  April 29, 2012
Dick Lugar’s record on Iran (and Middle East policy in general) has not received as much attention as other Lugar failures, such as his vouching for Obama’s foreign policy credentials just three weeks before the 2008 election. Lugar consistently has shown what generously could be characterized as wishful thinking about negotiations with the Iranian regime.  Lugar’s Iran history deserves the…
