GOP “retreat” on Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood

Following an election where the American people gave the repugnant (oops, I mean Republican) party full control of Washington, D.C., the invertebrate GOP held their annual “retreat”–a word that has historically carried more than one meaning when discussing the party…

Greta predicts King v. Burwell

During Tuesday night’s Off the Record segment, Greta van Susteren made a rare prediction: Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com Here’s what she said: GRETA: First, some Law 101. When 2 parties dispute a statute, here Obamacare, the Court must first decide who’s right. The Court first looks at the plain wording of the statute. […]

Mitch McConnell’s lead expands

There’s an unmistakable trend in the McConnell-Grimes race, a trend best illustrated by this morning’s RCP average of polls: That’s what a consistently growing lead looks like. None of these polls show Lundergan-Grimes leading. In fact, none of these polls shows Sen. McConnell’s lead inside the polls’ margin of error. There’s nothing in this graphic […]

2014 establishment Republicans just as poisonous as the 2010 version

When groups like the T.E.A. Party were on the rise leading up to the mid-term elections of 2010, Barry Goldwater Jr. recalled how similar they were to the conservative movement his father stood for. He was particularly impressed with how it reminded him “…of the conservative movement in 1960 and 1964,” and he concluded that they were “…people who are sick and tired of the country moving to the left.” While the final results were mixed, T.E.A. Party candidates represented the Republican party in several key races where the party establishment candidate was seen as being just as bad as the Democrats they were running against. In an article I wrote in September that year, Even a little poison is deadly, I provided several observations about how similar the Republican party had become to the poisonous Democrats. As I noted then: Suppose I put two glasses in front of you. The first glass is filled to the top with a lethal poison. The second one is filled to the top with your favorite beverage mixed with just a small amount of the same lethal poison. Which one would you drink from? I’m guessing that you wouldn’t drink from the first […]

I agree with Sen. Landrieu–Getting rid of Mary(s) would not be good

In December, 2013, we found ourselves in full agreement with Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) when she encouraged Louisiana citizens to “unelect” her for being the deciding vote—a vote that she takes 100% responsibility for—that passed Obamacare. Today, we find ourselves once again in full agreement with the flip-flopping Democrat. In a recent interview with the gang at “Morning Joe” on MSNBC—a Democrat in trouble doing an interview on MSNBC . . . what are the odds?—Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) made her case for reelection stating she was one of a dying breed of Democrats who are willing to compromise. “I think we need senators that will find a common ground and compromise,” Landrieu said. I’m one of the few that’s left. So getting rid of me and a few other people would not be good for the country and its future.” I guess in Mary’s little imaginary world, when you vote with Obama 96% of the time—even though she’s had a “come to Jesus”moment regarding Obama’s energy policies conveniently timed for her re-election—that makes you bipartisan. Apparently, attacking voters whose experiences are contrary to your talking points is too! When Christopher Schiff, a Marine Corp veteran—the “p” is silent, Mr. Obama—with private insurance, appeared in an […]

It’s time for Louisiana voters to heed the words of Mary Landrieu

In October of this year, Mary Landrieu (D-LA) stood on the Senate floor and told her constituents that her upcoming election should be a referendum on her vote for ObamaCare. Talking about voters and ObamaCare, the embattled Senator said: “We did not wake up one morning and declare this the law. The people of the United States declared this through us as their Representatives. If they do not like it, they can unelect us. Believe me, they will have a great chance because I am up for reelection right now. They will be able to do that. But that is the way you do it. I am going to run for reelection. I am standing in this election as a supporter of the Affordable Care Act–not because it is a perfect law but because it is much better for all the people I represent than what we had before–the wealthiest people, the middle-class people, and the poor people.” I’m pretty sure that she regrets making such a declaration, since it turns out that in Louisiana, a July 2013 poll indicates that 60% of voters are less likely to vote for Landrieu based on her “deciding vote in support of ObamaCare.” In fact, her regret appeared […] . . . → Read More: It’s time for Louisiana voters to heed the words of Mary Landrieu . . . → Read More: It’s time for Louisiana voters to heed the words of Mary Landrieu
