Santorum’s attack-free honeymoon may end soon

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
Rick Santorum clearly is a social conservative, but not so clearly a fiscal conservative or smaller government conservative. One of Santorum’s selling points is how he has conducted himself this campaign season.  While he attacks hard, he has not gotten personal or rattled. We’ll see. Santorum did not have several million dollars in attack ads…

Things from weekend

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
Just a few things you may want to take a look at: The Legal Insurrection Daily - new daily service. When did you decide to become politically active? And how have you been reacting to this election season? Another Pallywood hoax exposed, again.  It never stops.

Chrysler commercial, or Obama campaign ad?

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
I didn’t watch the Halftime show yesterday, but I did notice Twitter light up like a Christmas Holiday tree, with shouts of Et tu Clint! Now I know why: It pretty much was an Obama commercial supporting the government bailout of Chrysler: Apparently the ad was pulled from YouTube and Chrysler’s own website based on an…

Nevada, finally

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
Sometime late last night or early this morning Eastern time, the final results in Nevada were released. Romney came in with a 1% lower percentage of the vote than in 2008, but more significantly, both Romney’s actual number of votes and Republican participation in the caucuses was way down from 2008. Over 44,000…

Memories

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
From reader and frequent commenter DINORightMarie: I have been collecting these for a while, but finally got them downloaded off my iPhone. I believe the picture quality is good enough to read them and zoom in, if needed. All were taken in Winchester, VA, of parked cars – no driving while…

Super Open

Posted by  ▪  February 5, 2012
Some links I’ve been collecting: You’ll get yours, my Ricky, and your little campaign too. Battle of the GOP blondes. Obama helps create jobs about as well as he golfs, although he tries harder at golf. Smearing Newt as racist.  But of course. [link fixed] Conservative is what Ann Coulter says it is, you bombastic toothless Tea…

It’s more than just an assault on our religious freedoms

Posted by  ▪  February 5, 2012
Government entanglement in our lives is increasing exponentially. Nowhere is this more evident than the recent assault on religious freedoms from varying governmental entities. As Rick Santorum would put it, “It is a top down approach” and it truly is. From the top, we have the Obama administration’s new health care mandate…

When did you decide to become politically active?

Posted by  ▪  February 5, 2012
I had the pleasure a couple of weeks ago of meeting with Anne Sorock and Yvonne Ralsky, co-founders of The Fontier Lab. The Frontier Lab, among other things, utilizes “deep values research” common in consumer products marketing analysis (Anne is a Cornell Business School graduate who concentrated in the field) and applies those principles…

Nevada Caucuses Results – The fantastic not actually so great night for Romney

Posted by  ▪  February 5, 2012
What is going on in Nevada?  As of this morning, I cannot find any source reporting more than 71% of the results? Did they count the votes and decide to go home for the night before releasing them?  Apparently Clark County (Las Vegas) is the cause of the delay. Anyway, by the…

We’ve got some of those

Posted by  ▪  February 5, 2012
in Ithaca, too. Thanks to reader Bob, who writes: This was taken in Ann Arbor Michigan on the way to a football game. I had my grand daughter take it since I was driving (safety first). Love your blog, it’s a daily read.

Romney tries to cut off Newt’s SuperPAC funding

Posted by  ▪  February 4, 2012
I’ll post the Nevada results later.  Romney won big there in 2008  (51.1%) because of the heavy Mormon turnout at the caucuses and is expected to do so again. The big story was the revelation in The NY Times that the Romney campaign, both directly and through Jewish emissaries, has been trying…

Saturday Night Card Game (If calling Juan Juan is a racial code word, what is calling Wolf Wolf?)

Posted by  ▪  February 4, 2012
We have been here before.  The accusation that harsh criticism of Barack Obama or his policies constitutes the use of “racially tinged” code words. Invariably, the code word problem is defined in such a way that the accusation is self-fulfilling; the lack of an actual racial reference is used as proof of…

Santorum’s Big Government Problem

Posted by  ▪  February 4, 2012
Rick Santorum recently released  an attack ad on Newt Gingrich criticizing him as a big government conservative touting the line, “Rick Santorum for President. He doesn’t just talk a good conservative game, he lives it.” Why is Santorum drawing attention to his fellow candidates’ records of big government, when Santorum is so…

No prosecution of Lance Armstrong

Posted by  ▪  February 4, 2012
I have followed cycling for many years, and at one point was a pretty good cyclist myself. The family went to Paris in 2005 to watch Lance Armstrong’s last victory ride down the Champs-Élysées (as it turned out it was not his last ride, as he made a comeback but never won…
