Boston Globe already has Elizabeth Warren buyer’s remorse

Boston Globe already has Elizabeth Warren buyer’s remorse

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…

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…

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.)

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

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

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
11/8/2012 at 2:11pm
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

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’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
11/8/2012 at 8:15am
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…

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…

Operation Counterweight 2012 is over.  I reported the results in an earlier post, here is my assessment. The first thing you need to understand is that by definition we chose difficult races, not easy ones.  The goal was to try to flip Democratic seats or protect vulnerable Republicans in races which (with…

Yet this, Tammy Baldwin tops Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin and this: Theory.  Wisconsin voters…

This headline at DEBKAfile is spot on, Barack Obama wins reelection: Mid East faces nuclear Iran, Brotherhood grip: The prospect of another four years of Obama in the White House fills some Middle East nations, including the Persian Gulf and Israel, with trepidation. They envisage a foreign policy that continues to focus on hitching…
