Republicans Worst-Case Scenario?

Things are getting bad for Hillary. I hear she’s losing a lot of support from Democrat Party insiders, at least in private. The DNC is meeting this week, and talk will likely surround an alternative Democrats can vote for. While Republicans enjoy the Clinton meltdown, we might want to be careful what we wish for. One of the GOP’s best hopes for the White House is voter enthusiasm. Republicans can’t wait to vote, Democrats dread it. Read more →

3 Crystal-Clear Images From The Republican Primary De-Cantor

“Shellacked!” That was the word that stuck out to me. Eric Cantor, the Republican House Majority Leader led by 34 points according to his pollster. He lost by 10. That’s a shellacking.

Is Glenn Beck Helping?

For (at least) the past two nights, Glenn Beck’s program has been spell-bindingly depressing and eye-gougingly infuriating. He’s chronicled the Obama administration’s anti-Constitutional transfer of power and wealth from private Americans to other countries. He’s shown that the administration has no concern over the 2010 election because it has no intention of obeying the laws passed by Congress. For example, the newly appointed Consumer Protection Czar, a hard-line communist, Elizabeth Warren, is funded directly from the U. Read more →
