No Direct Word From Romney RE Michele Bachman Muslim Brotherhood Flap

July 29, 2012

Republican Rejection of Romney is Easy to Understand If You Know What A Republican IS These Days

October 13, 2011


The Economist has checked in with a statement of the obvious:  Romney is a front-runner without a Republican majority behind him: But the party simply does not want to nominate Mitt Romney.How else to explain the brief flirtation with the ridiculous Donald Trump? The overheated infatuation with a modestly interesting but hardly world-beating Mitch Daniels? […]

BEWARE: CNN Crown’s Republican Candidate as Future Direction of Party

September 14, 2011


They always do it.  The media always love to provide the answers before Americans have even asked the question.

DNC and RNC on the WEB. Who Has The Most Inviting “Front Door” to Membership?

May 9, 2011


It all boils down to this: Above, the top half of the first page of the Republican National Committee’s website.  Inviting?  Intriguing?  Want to know more?  Do you know who they are or what they do?  SamHenry thinks it looks like a basic grid page rendered by someone without a sense of design or message.  […]

The State of the Union Speech spectacular is now being called “Date Night.”  The proposal that was made for Republicans and Democrats to sit together in a way that would encourage a more civilized tone in their discourse has been taken to heart.  One congresswoman even laughed and said she would love a wrist corsage.

“She’s outstayed her welcome.”   That’s really the thesis of Gloria Borger’s recent essay on why Palin is passe and down in the polls.  “America is tired of her.”    Now I am  not a great Palin fan but I have stood in admiration of what she has been able to achieve in spite of, well, […]

DC Dems Like Crocs in a Swamp

November 15, 2010
