Pre-SC polls opening Open

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
Voting takes place 7-7 tomorrow in S.C. We’ll have updates throughout the day starting at noon, and then coverage beginning at around 6:30 until the results are final.  Will probably handle it similar to N.H., with resultes posted as they come in, rather than a Live Event. In the meantime, for what it’s…

Hell hath no fury like a blogger scorned

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
From the kind folks at BuzzFeed Politics, A Message For Mitt Romney  (bold in original): Today Mitt Romney left reporters from online outlets (The Huffington Post, Politico, and BuzzFeed) off of his campaign plane. We thought we’d provide a friendly reminder to Governor Romney and his staff. Word of advice — don’t make them…

It’s a part of his plan

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
You’ve been warned before. The devil in Obamacare is not in the 2000 pages, its in the regulations to be promulgated.  For every page, expect several regulations.  It will push up the cost of health insurance and suffocate the private insurance markets as a result. When cost of private insurance becomes prohibitive, consumers…

Rick Santorum failed the debate character test

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
Rick Santorum disqualified himself last night at the debate by his response to John King’s question to Newt about the ABC News interview with Newt’s ex-wife. The issue was more than just another issue, whether it was the Newt-Freddie consulting, Romney’s tax returns, or Santorum’s election loss in PA.  The ABC assault on…

Dirty SC politics alert – Fake CNN e-mail

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
If there is a place which has more tawdry political practices, I’m willing to be convinced. But until further notice, South Carolina still is in lead, as reported by FITS News : Double irony alert:  FITS News is the publication which claimed Nikki Haley had an affair. Update:  It continues - More here.

Stuffed

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
Things going down (not in the depraved freak sense): Newt’s tax returns show 32% rate. Tim Scott not happy with Romney position on tax returns. Left-wing blogger says Newt “understands the Republican id perfectly,” which is why he’s feared, in my opinion. Mitt defends … Newt defends …. And this is the guy we let moderate…

Of course Colbert is out to marginalize the Republican Party

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
Be careful, very careful, about embracing anything Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart or Saturday Night Live or any of the other liberal entertainment media types do. Sometimes it is very, very funny.  Stewart in particular is an equal opportunity mocker, and seems the least malicious of the bunch. But Chuck Todd is right…

Via WaPo: All told, Obama held four fundraisers in New York on Thursday, flying here after unveiling a new proposal in Orlando, related to boosting tourism. While his four remaining Republican rivals held another televised debate in South Carolina, Obama was filling his war chest by talking with influential Jewish voters, yukking it…

ABC News’ textbook lesson in media hackery

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
Last night ABC News aired the much ballyhooed interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s ex-wife. The ballyhoo was not warranted.  The “interview” was not so much an interview as an 8-minute ABC News attempt to portray Newt in an unfavorable light interspersed with very short clips of Marianne. A prime example was Brian Ross…

Electra-fying

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
More thanks to reader Danelle in Electra, Texas: Ronnie Wilson opened up his print shop over 30 years ago. He mostly prints signage for the locally owned oil field operations and trucking companies. He’s also known to put out bumper stickers and signage reflecting current political sentiments, local, state or national! The sticker…

Charleston Debate – Newt took 1st question about ex-wife, wrapped question around John King’s neck, and tightened

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
John King started the night with a question about Newt’s ex-wife’s interview in which she alleged Newt sought an “open marriage.” Newt answered the question eventually with a denial, but used the oppoturnity to give King a smackdown which will be remembered for a long time. It was classic Newt, and will…

Charleston South Carolina Debate

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
Endgame assessment: Newt stole the buzz with the opening smackdown of John King over the issue of his ex-wife. After that Santorum was very aggressive, going after both Romney and Newt time and again; people either will like it or hate it. After a while he became grating. Romney has a…

Pre-debate prediction: Get Newt

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
My predictions: Rick Santorum is angry, and as I have said before, Rick Santorum does angry much better than even Newt does angry. He’s in a no win situation — if he scores enough points to damage Newt, he hands the SC election to Romney and the race could be over; if…

It’s a mad mad

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
Some things which got pushed aside for the breaking breaking news: When Mitt’s lost National Review on releasing tax returns now. Ann Coulter is sounding more and more like Marianne Gingrich. Hezbollah receiving more powerful, longer range missiles from Syria. Hyperbole in defense of Bain is a vice, don’t let them tell you otherwise. Bibi denies…
