Obama’s tax promise shattered with ObamaCare.

“If you make less than $250,000 your taxes will not go up. Not one dime.” — Barack Obama. Not one dime, that is, as long as you’re not married. If you’re married the ObamaCare bill would hit couples making as little as $25,000 each. From the Wall Street Journal: WASHINGTON — Some married couples would […]

This is unity? post-racial?

Wow. I cannot recall an inauguration treated with such disrespect. Obama can’t choose his supporters, I guess, but it’s going to be hard for him to unify as he promised when he’s backed by persons who clearly have no interest in unifying. They just want their pound of flesh. American elections are founded on the […]

Minnesota’s Election 2000.

Here’s Mike Paulson: You would think people would learn. The recount in the contest between Norm Coleman and Al Franken for a seat in the U.S. Senate isn’t just embarrassing. It is unconstitutional. This is Florida 2000 all over again, but with colder weather. Like that fiasco, Minnesota’s muck of a process violates the Equal […]

Strange bedfellows.

Senate Maj. Leader Harry Reid is adamant that he will block any nomination for Obama’s former Senate seat put up by Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Adamant he may be but the strategy of keeping Blago in the media limelight is just a bad one for Democrats. What’s really interesting is that some conservatives, while no fans […]

Stealing Minnesota.

They tried in 2000 and came close to theft. They appear to be doing so in Minnesota. What’s really interesting (i.e., fraudulent) is that 25 precincts now have more ballots than voters who signed in to vote. Here’s gateway pundit: More… The Wall Street Journal reported today that 25 precincts now have more ballots than […]

McCainiacs finally get it.

The McCain camp finally starts to realize what fiscal conservatives knew years ago — McCain’s lack of fiscally conservative economic principles would hamstring his election chances. [Business & Media Institute] As it turns out, swaying from conservative principles doesn’t always pay off for a Republican presidential candidate. Sen. John McCain learned that lesson that hard […]

What “recount” means to Democrats.

To Democrats, “recount” means stacking the deck with liberal activists. BRECKENRIDGE, Minn. — A woman who worked for Al Franken earlier this week during the Senate recount in one county ended up counting ballots as a nonpartisan volunteer here Saturday in a recount that grew heated at times. No shananigans there. Move along, move along.

Lieberman flexes for now.

[Washington Post] Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) easily won a vote yesterday to remain chairman of a key committee and will stay in the Senate Democratic caucus despite his high-profile criticism of President-elect Barack Obama and his support of Sen. John McCain during the presidential campaign. Lieberman surrendered his position on the Environment and Public […]

No more RINOs.

Several years ago Christie Todd Whitman, former governor of New Jersey and EPA administrator, wrote a book called “It’s My Party Too.” She used that treatise to argue for the party to abandon its conservative roots. Even after two serious GOP drubbings at the polls, she has found no takers. Likewise, Lincoln Chaffee, the former […]

O-Bam-A voters display their NPR/PBS/Jon Stewart intellectual prowess.

A few points: It really gets funny about 5 minutes into it. Voter Erika was by far the most sensible, and bubbly cute. The rest were morons… Albeit, PBS-/NPR-/New York Times-educated morons. Along those lines, it really underscores the power of the mainstream media, no matter how archaic conventional wisdom says they’ve become in our […]
