A Vote For Romney / Ryan - A Vote For Austerity

A Vote For Romney / Ryan - A Vote For Austerity
GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney went bold with his running mate selection but in the final analysis may have given the election back to the incumbent.

Political Robocalls Annoying But Did Help Me Decide - To Skip Illinois Primary
I don’t know about you, but robocalls annoy me and that is why registered with the Do Not Call Registry. Unfortunately, the brains behind the Act excluded political robocalls. And now that Illinois is in play for the GOP, well, let’s just say the number of calls per day have left me even more annoyed... Read more »

2012 Super Tuesday: Much Ado Over Nothing

2012 Super Tuesday: Much Ado Over Nothing
Generally Super Tuesday marks an awakening to the many who, up until now, have not paid as much attention to the National Political scene as perhaps they should have. Yet I get sense that this year will be much different. Let’s face it, President Obama is just biding his time, while collecting obscene campaign contributions,... Read more »

Politicians Resemble Costa Concordia's Francesco Schettino

Politicians Resemble Costa Concordia's Francesco Schettino
I have always found it amusing whenever spin doctors begin wagging the dog in favor of their ideological beliefs. However after a top Republican official, Reince Priebus, sparked a political uproar on Sunday by comparing President Barack Obama to disgraced Italian ship captain Francesco Schettino it got even more amusing.

Mr. President - Who's Paying For Air Force One, Two and Marine One Today?

Mr. President - Who's Paying For Air Force One, Two and Marine One Today?
Ah how nice – President Barack Obama has come home, albeit for a very short trip and the news media is abuzz. However, as Air Force One was taxing down the runway it didn’t dawn on any of our evening newscasters to ask the obvious question regarding his travel arrangements. I mean, this is after...

Priceless Debate Moment: Obamacare Modeled On Romneycare and Actually Suggested By Newt

Priceless Debate Moment: Obamacare Modeled On Romneycare and Actually Suggested By Newt
Perhaps the most hilarious moment in the so-called “Far West GOP Debate” was when former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum provoked Mitt Romney by saying he had no credibility in vowing to repeal Obamacare because President Obama modeled his program, in part, after Romney’s Massachusetts program. After Romney gave his standard debate answer, Newt Gingrich appeared... Read more »

Hoffa Statements And A Tea Party Calling The Kettle Black
Amy Kremer of the Tea Party Express called on President Barack Obama to “condemn this inappropriate and uncivil rhetoric” after Teamsters Union President James Hoffa said the Tea Party had launched a “war on workers” and “let’s take these son-of-a-bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong.” Well, I certainly understand...

Americans Can End Whore House Politics By Demanding An "Everybody In Open Primary"

Americans Can End Whore House Politics By Demanding An "Everybody In Open Primary"
As the rancor and dysfunction in politics increases, more and more Americans have become less inclined to favor either party. According to a Mickey Edwards article written for the Atlantic, some 40% of voters now describe themselves as “Independents.” Hopefully that number will continues to grow since it would finally offer voters the power to...

Illinois Remap Showdown: Federal Lawsuit Filed Alleging Voting Rights Act Violation
As expected the Illinois GOP has filed the first in a series of many Federal Lawsuits challenging the Democratic-drawn remap of the Illinois Senate districts alleging that the Voting Rights Act of 1965 has been violated because it unfairly discriminates against African-Americans and Hispanics. Of course that isn’t the only reason – let’s face these... Read more »
