The only thing Ann Coulter loves more than Chris Christie is … Romneycare

Posted by  ▪  February 1, 2012
I warned you.  In order to promote the election of Mitt Romney we would have to go through all sorts of philosophical and policy contortions. And here we have ended up, with Romney’s most bombastic media supporter, who has not spared a foul word for Newt, issuing a full-throttled defense of and…

I feel good

Posted by  ▪  February 1, 2012
I’m feeling better right now than I did last night. The National Review’s Candidate Won’t Stop Digging Romney Drowns Gingrich and Santorum in Toxic Sludge.  Um, how did Rick get in on this act, he’s barely been touched. Mitt Romney and the banks. Someone you don’t like didn’t like Mitt’s speech last night, but that…

The way forward

Posted by  ▪  February 1, 2012
It was a very busy month here. Traffic was up, with almost the highest number of visits I’ve ever had in a month (560k) and the highest page views ever (848k). I haven’t counted comments by month, but at some point during January we went from the usual 10-20 comments per post to…

I though I had lost

my ability to laugh. Then I saw these, the most recent being Santorum. “NEWT GINGRICH” — a Bad Lip Reading Soundbite – watch more funny videos

Romney played class warfare “poorly”

Posted by  ▪  February 1, 2012
Mitt Romney had an interview this morning in which he said the following: Romney says, “I’m not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs a repair , I’ll fix it. I’m not concerned about the very rich…. I’m concerned about the very heart of America,…

Mitt’s positive campaign continues

Posted by  ▪  February 1, 2012
in Nevada with this mailer: Similar mailers have been running for days. I suppose Mitt will tell us that he only is going negative because Newt outspent him in Florida. Who is it that can’t be trusted?

“Romneycare is okay because Romney has the best chance of winning in November”

Posted by  ▪  February 1, 2012
That statement, by a Romney supporter on the Mark Levin show, pretty much sums up the problem with the primary season, and the willing disbelief about the problem we face with Romney as the nominee. Here’s the full segment, if you want to jump in for the quote, click here: (added) If you…

Apathy will be the legacy of Romney’s carpet bombing

Posted by  ▪  February 1, 2012
Mitt Romney had a strong win last night in Florida.  There’s no way to spin it otherwise, just as there was no way to spin Newt’s South Carolina win otherwise. But at what cost? Financially the cost was about $17 million for Romney and his SuperPAC, almost entirely on negative ads.  Of the…

Well aren’t you special

What, our tax dollars aren’t good enough for you?  How ’bout we make you buy one of our Chevy Volts (as soon as we figure out how to stop them from catching fire)? Thanks to Linda, this was taken in the parking lot of the Bass Pro Shop in Nashville, TN:

Allen West switching districts

Posted by  ▪  January 31, 2012
Via Dan Riehl at Big Government, Allen West is escaping the bad redistricting and will be running in another district, in a game of musical chairs with a couple of others: In a deal with several moving parts, Conservative favorite Rep. Allen West will move over and run in Rep. Tom Rooney’s…

Florida primary results

Posted by  ▪  January 31, 2012
Looks like turnout down 200k from 2008.  Notice that when Romney ties/wins (IA, NH, FL) no turnout surge, when Newt won in SC huge turnout surge.  Turnout will be important in November 2012, and while Romney is winning, he’s not motivating new voters to come out.  Bad sign so far. 95% reporting…

Really, just really

Posted by  ▪  January 31, 2012
Really, just really (emphasis mine): Mitt Romney says he was “outgunned” in South Carolina, blaming attacks from Newt Gingrich for his defeat there earlier this month. “I needed to make sure that instead of being outgunned in terms of attacks, that I responded aggressively — and hopefully that will have served me well here,”…

Learn to love Romneycare

Posted by  ▪  January 31, 2012
Of course, it takes a publication like Mother Jones to pull this stuff up, but it hasn’t received a lot of attention since it was published in October. There’s a curious reference to Teddy having to work in Washington in order for Massachusetts to pass Romneycare. It hasn’t come up much, but here is an apparent financial explanation from…
