Yeah I really can’t add much commentary, but after making some calls to Capitol Hill it was confirmed that our Congress is completely deaf and blind to reality. HT: Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion Does anybody have any aspirin?
According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, the Washington Times reports. President Obama’s economic recovery package will actually hurt the economy more in the long run than if he were to do nothing, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Wednesday. CBO, the official scorekeepers for legislation, said the House and Senate bills will help in […]
David Brody has the video and transcript of President Obama addressing those in attendance at this year’s National Prayer Breakfast so you can watch and read the whole thing there. Some thoughts. After giving a background of the history of the breakfast… which I wonder why they do that like those in attendance don’t know. […]
Well shoot, pass Porkulus now! I mean we’ll lose 160% of our jobs in one month! We’ll lose 6 BILLION in one year. Speaker Pelosi in a classic moment: Nancy Pelosi, the Republicans’ secret weapon… redefining fuzzy math. You know I wish this was made up.
On January 9,2009 then President-Elect Obama said, “There is no disagreement that we need action by our government, a recovery plan that will help to jumpstart the economy.” Mr. President, what exactly do you call the 323 (give or take a couple) economists who signed the CATO Institute letter/ad (so far)? Economists who just haven’t […]
Michelle Malkin shared some nice tidbits received from Senator Colburn’s office from this “stimulus” bill. Here are items that Democrats in Congress feel will help stimulate the economy. Now I’m not saying some of these are not worthy programs or even things that may need funding. Just keep in mind this “stimulus” bill is supposed […]
Governor Mike Huckabee wrote an op/ed for Fox News. What he says about legislation being hurried through is so true, and I like the “Huckabee Plan” for Congress. Too bad it’ll never be enacted. I learned a few tricks and tactics while I was a lieutenant governor and governor for over 13 1/2 years. And […]
President Obama’s decision to overturn the Mexico City policy to allow funding for family planning organizations that provide abortions is his least popular decision according to a recent Gallup poll. Further, Obama’s decision to reverse the prohibition on funding for overseas family-planning providers may be the least popular thing he has done so far. This […]
Important update below! I wanted to respond to something I saw on Fox News on Saturday, and then read on Sunday regarding the stimulus porkulus plan being pushed through Congress. The AP reported (via Fox News) about how Republican Governors were responding to the stimulus porkulus bill. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee, Alaska Gov. […]
Former Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele and Chair of GoPAC was elected the Republican National Committee Chairman this afternoon after a sixth ballot. Congratulations to Chairman Steele. His emphasis of his plan really focuses on grassroots efforts, revitalizing state parties and partnering with them, identifying and unleashing leadership, as well as, attracting new members to […]
In the last eight years evangelicals have been blasted as being beholden to the Republican Party. Some of that criticism has been fair, some has not. I find it curious that for some younger evangelicals and those who align themselves with the emergent church in an effort to “find balance” that the pendulum has swung […]
The Nashville Post is reporting that Chip Saltsman has withdrawn from the race. I had endorsed him when he first announced his candidacy because of his work on Mike Huckabee’s campaign and his leadership of the Tennessee GOP, but felt that his chances were permanently damaged by CD-gate. Apparently it didn’t even look like he […]
The Illinois Senate convicts Rod Blagojevich 59 -0, even after he decided to come give a closing statement in his defense. The former governor had refused to take part in the trial, but he surprised everyone by asking to make a closing statement in which he insisted that he should not be tossed out of […]
Well, not our current president, but President George H.W. Bush and President Bill Clinton hammed it up. Actually President Obama was pretty funny yesterday though, apparently he couldn’t find the door to his office, but we can’t mock him about that. Anyway here is a video of two former presidents sharing the stage. HT: The […]
Call your representatives to urge them to vote no on this piece of garbage (HR 1 – $900,000,000,000 Obama stimulus plan). Some highlights regarding the stimulus plan: • $825 billion total (as of 1/15/09) • $550 billion in new spending, described as thoughtful and carefully targeted priority investments with unprecedented accountability measures built in. • […]
Kind of out of the blue SarahPAC was launched with no fanfare. Some suspected that Governor Palin would do this, and it perhaps it means she’s looking at a 2012 run for President. Perhaps not. One thing it does signal is her desire to stay involved with national politics. From the frontpage: Dedicated to building […]
