What do the preening Progressives demand from the multitudinous rubes of the left, right and center?
Jon Stewart’s “Rally to Restore Sanity” and Steven Colbert’s “Rally to Restore Fear” was hilarious, and heartbreaking.
The Democratic operative, James Carville, coined one of the most legendary campaign catchphrases, “it’s the economy, stupid.” Close to two decades later with our federal deficits this year and last, the highest on record since World War II, that phrase should be changed to, “it’s the spending, stupid.”
In Upstate New York lies New York’s 20th Congressional District, a largely rural district currently held by vulnerable freshman Democrat Scott Murphy.
Four days to go until the 2010 midterm elections and already we have seen rampant voter fraud taking place in many states.
Most elections are about particular policies, particular scandals or particular personalities. But these issues don't mean as much this year-- not because they are not important, but because this election is a crossroads election, one that can decide what path this country will take for many years to come.
My military friends have a favorite saying: "If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target."
Amidst the exuberant celebration of Obama’s election in 2008, many liberal talking heads pronounced the death of conservatism. Yet just two short years later, the Republicans are poised to overwhelm the Democrats in the midterm elections. RealClearPolitics predicts that the GOP will gain eight seats in the Senate, six governorships, and approximately fifty seats in the House. What has spurred this reverse of fortunes?
With the political environment turning toxic for Democrats, a Congressional seat in Southern Minnesota is moving towards a GOP pick-up opportunity.
A hearty campaign staff comprised of disaffected Democrats, independents, and even a few Bay State Republicans, has been placing over 5,000 campaign calls per day and processing countless mailers since the primary election. All to campaign against incumbent Barney Frank.
In his final push against Republican Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania Senate race, an advertisement from Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak features a bag of feces collected from his family dog.
Who is the largest single political contributor in the 2010 campaign cycle? The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees.
Don't cry for Juan Williams. Lurking ahead are probably a seven-figure book deal, larger speaking fees, and loads more face time on television. NPR fired him, reconfirming the organization as a taxpayer-supported bastion of biased liberalism masquerading as "nonpartisan."
The great "what-if" looks like it is about to happen. With all of the media attention focused on Tuesday's midterm election, Republicans are faced with a greater task than winning a majority in the House of Representatives or getting at least close enough to a majority that they will be able to halt or slow the Obama agenda.
This year's election will be exciting. Given the disenchantment of voters with President Obama and the Democratic Congress, there is every prospect that your Democratic representative will be shown the door. Given the generally anti-incumbent mood, there is every prospect that your Republican representative will be out on the street.
Tuesday marks the mid-term elections. How will they turn out?
With the media sneering about the Tea Party candidates being a bunch of nuts, how about we take a look at some of the Democrats running this year?
This year, Republicans are doing what it takes to win back a seat in a traditional Republican stronghold.
In my neighborhood of Dallas, not far from where George and Laura Bush moved after he presided over eight years of big-government conservatism, I often see signs that say: "Had Enough? Vote Republican!"
There is one Republican policy he signed into law (besides welfare reform) that he never says anything about and that helped balance the budget.
The growing level of violent crime in the black American community is abhorrent.
Republican Congressional candidate Lou Barletta has a secret weapon: Betty Crocker. A team of bakers have carpet-bombed his campaign with lemon cake and peanut thumbprints.
Assume the polls are correct and Republicans win control of the House, and perhaps even the Senate, in next month's elections.
Riddle me this: How can anyone take Obama seriously when he says he will focus on the deficit in the next two years, seeing as his economic and social philosophies dictate that he continue to spend our money like a drunken floozy?
They finally nabbed Al Capone—but for tax evasion. Legislation to de-fund The Corporation for Public Broadcasting will finally be introduced—but because of Juan Williams’ pink slip. Senator Jim DeMint explained his motivation, “Since 2001, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which funds programming for National Public Radio and the Public Broadcasting Service, has received nearly $4 billion in taxpayer money..there’s simply no reason to force taxpayers to subsidize liberal programming they disagree with.”
NPR CEO Vivian Schiller isn't just a cranky liberal who smacked Juan Williams down. She's one of the key architects of a plan to "reinvent journalism" through government takeover. The FCC's involvement in this got a lot of attention earlier this year, but few people realize the leading role Schiller has taken and how far she has gotten in building a national delivery system to replace for-profit news with government funded "public news."
Will the professorial crowd or the populists prevail? Does San Fran Nancy fall to Ohio John Boehner for Speaker of the House -- and in Colorado races, bookish John Hickenlooper to biker Tom Tancredo for governor, urbane Michael Bennet to bluejeans Ken Buck for senator, faculty-club Hart to gun-club Bosley for regent?
With November midterms—one of the rare opportunities for revolution afforded in democracies—less than two weeks away, President Obama has amped up his smoke-and-mirrors show in addressing voters’ biggest concern: the economy. Time for a bit of unspinning.
The third in a series of weekly interviews with Dr. Paul Kengor, professor of political science and executive director of the Center for Vision and Values
This past Wednesday, October 20, millions of Americans wore purple to show their support for GLBT youth in what has now been dubbed “Spirit Day.”
George Clooney recently returned from a trip to Sudan and brief President Obama on the situation there. It’s wonderful that Americans such as Clooney want to help others, but how well do these Hollywood stars understand their own country?
As one of the few Democrats in America who is actively campaign on their voting record, Democrat Tom Perriello has made his votes for the Pelosi/Obama agenda a cornerstone of his campaign in Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District.
American college student activists, long seen as a bellwether for populist outrage, are missing in action. They are not staging protests concerning political, social and financial issues which affect them more directly and more profoundly than another other generation of Americans.
It is little wonder that polls consistently find that the TSA is the most hated U.S. government agency, even more despised than the Internal Revenue Service.
What's healthcare like for the poor? I've visited low-cost Christian health clinics in New Jersey, Illinois, Florida, Mississippi, and other states, but my experience with big city emergency rooms was mediated through ER, Grey's Anatomy, and similar fantasies—or that's how I saw them.
One of the most hotly contested races in the country lies in the northern plains: North Dakota’s At-large Congressional District.
Obamanomics has put the economy in a state of uncertainty and chaos, and it penalizes hardworking, productive people who play by the rules.
The firing of Juan Williams by National Public Radio (NPR), alleging that he was guilty of bigotry during a recent appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s FoxNews Channel television program, is another case of political correctness mixed with demagoguery run amuck.
An important moral voice in American public life was muzzled in 1954, and we are still paying the price.
