I thought Romney gave an excellent speech. It had a good mix of soaring rhetoric without veering into Greek columns territory. Clearly the speech was intended to help neutralize the “war on women” theme, and I think it was effective.  I also was glad that the speech included a frontal assault on Obama’s…

They’re still just JournoLists

Posted by
8/31/2012 at 9:24am
The media moved with stunning symmetry this week is seeking any and every means of tearing down the Republican National Convention, and particularly Paul Ryan. To borrow their favorite metaphor, it was as if someone blew a dog whistle that only the liberal media could hear. National Journal, which until now I have…

From reader Henry: I’ve always told my kids that any vehicle sporting more than 3 bumper stickers is probably owned by a “wacko”. Here are a couple of photos of such a car that I spotted this morning in Santa Fe, NM. I note that I regard Santa Fe as similar to Berkeley, except…

All you need to know about the media reaction can be summed up in one word:  JournoList. Same players still, just in more influential positions.  But that’s for another day, maybe even tomorrow. Tonight I’m going to try not to let the stuck pigs distract me from listening to the next President of…

Dan Bongino video – We Will Rise

Posted by
8/30/2012 at 5:05pm
A few days ago, Operation Counterweight member Dan Bongino released a new web ad. Much like his previous ads, this one again channels a positive message centered around the promise of America. It’s a refreshing change of pace from the mudslinging that generally accompanies the vast majority political campaigns these days. The entire…

Faded Poster

The line in Paul Ryan’s speech about college grads living at home staring at a faded Obama poster was brilliant: College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life. I’m not sure…

Fact checkers self-destructing over Ryan speech

Posted by
8/30/2012 at 10:59am
If you have been following the internets, you can see an anaphylactic reaction among supposed “fact checkers” over Paul Ryan’s brilliantly effective speech last night. The section about the closing of a GM plant in Janesville during the Obama administration has been a particular area of attention (emphasis mine): President Barack Obama, came to…

I posted the other day the video of someone in the Warren campaign group assaulting a videographer. The Warren campaign said he was just a cab driver who had no connection to the campaign.  It then turned out that a photograph was found by Patrick Howley of The Washington Free Beacon on…

Couple of thoughts before the big Ryan speech. This always was going to be a multi-stage fight.  The first and highest priority is removing Obama from office and Democrats from control of the Senate. But after that, and assuming it happens, there will be the Republican establishment to deal with, as was seen…

I first wrote back in June that Missouri Senator Claire MacAskill’s effort to distance herself from the President by skipping out on the DNC was “not a bad strategy.” In July, I reported that Nancy Pelosi had essentially endorsed it as the “official strategy” of Congressional Democrats. Now, it appears to be that…

The title isn’t about the Middle East, although it could be. It’s John Nolte’s persuasive analysis of the mainstream media in light of the hot mic comment initially thought to come from an ABC News staff member that the Romneys are “happy to party while black people drown”: The media cannot be reasoned…
