No, Newt did not endorse the Obamacare mandate

Posted by  ▪  January 30, 2012
The blog Verum Serum claims to have found an audio recording showing that Newt Gingrich supported Obama’s federal mandate, in a post titled Gingrich Called for ObamaCare Mandate in May 2009…. Breitbart TV picked up on that theme, asserting “this is the first example of Gingrich specifically endorsing President Barack Obama’s federally mandated version which…

Time to turn the page

or better yet, write the epilogue. Another from Cathy, who writes: At Wasabi in Eustis, Fl.  I really like this one.
 

I just needed

to watch this again. I was a student in Moscow at the time, and it was overwhelming.  No one thought it was possible.  And it wasn’t, it just happened.
 

Romney starts war in Republican Balkans

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
I have been trying, as best I can, to sound the alarm about the damage being done by the scorched earth tactics of the Romney campaign and its supporters in the Republican political and media establishments. The effort long ago left the political realm and has devolved into a collective settling of decades-old communal scores.  Romney…

Previewing the blame game

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
The latest polls in Florida point to a significant Romney victory on Tuesday, possibly double digits. If Romney does win by a double digit margin in Florida, the pressure will be for those who do not support Romney to stop criticizing Romney in the name of defeating Obama.  A Romney defe…

The Face of Peace

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
With the Republican primary taking up all the oxygen, other issues of importance have been flying under the radar. One such issue is our peace initiative in Afghanistan. The Obama administration has decided to engage Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef as a conduit to the Taliban in order to peacefully resolve the conflict….

Last call for Tea Party in 2012?

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
It’s not looking good in Florida. The polls show Romney surging as a result of the Romney plan exposed by The NY Times to overwhelm Newt via Romney’s close ties to Drudge and a collective effort of the Republican establishment to go after Newt in what The Wall Street Journal reported as “unlike…

Buycott, Buycott, Buycott

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
I have featured the vile (I’m being restrained here) anti-Israel Boycott Divest Sanction movement before, including their attempts to disrupt businesses owned by Israelis or doing business with Israel.  The BDS movement is an iteration of the Islamist-Leftist Anti-Israel Coalition. IsraellyCool has come up with a great Buycott poster highlighting companies which…

Bain’s Domino’s Pizza model looks a lot like the Obama model

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
I have told you that Bain would be our undoing in a general election. But whenever someone questions Bain, they are accused of being anti-capitalist. Wishing it away will not make it go away, as an article in The Boston Globe about Domino’s Pizza shows, Domino’s Delivered For Bain: Romney’s Bain made…

Allen West being redistricted out of existence in effort led by Romney Florida spokesman

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
The establishment is fighting back, alright. This has not received a lot of national attention, but the Republican legislature in Florida is about to push through a plan which puts Allen West at serious risk, and the person leading the effort is one of Mitt Romney’s spokemen.  As reported by The Shark…

Mike Huckabee did not say this, either

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
Two days ago Mike Huckabee denied calling Mitt Romney dishonest because of the negative attacks run by Romney, and asked Newt to take down an ad featuring Huckabee calling Romney dishonest because Huckabee denied what was on the video even though it was on the video. So remember, this also did not…

Hope and change some didn’t believe in

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
Thanks to reader Doug, who writes: Spotted today near Point Of Rocks, (Peoples Democratic Republic of) Maryland. I think we know where this person stands. I especially like the greeting to the ACLU. Personally, this is my favorite, a reminder of those who stood with him and those who stood against him:
 

Saturday Night Card Game (Republican debate was racist before they said a word)

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
Haven’t had much time to devote to the card game because I’m too busy trying to save the Republican Party from itself. But links are being saved, and I don’t want this one to grow stale. It speaks for itself:
 

Romney is winning his battles, but losing our war

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
If you asked me even a couple of weeks ago whether the Republican Party could heal from the wounds of this election cycle in time to unite against Obama, I would have said “Yes.” I’m not so sure anymore.  After the South Carolina primary the Republican establishment, and media supporters like Matt Drudge, launched…
