Did Lloyd Smith and Jo Ann Emerson Plan This All Along?

In an open Republican primary in Missouri’s 8th Congressional District, a solid conservative would beat an establishment “my turn” Republican, hands down. And the Missouri GOP would hate it. That’s why I smell a rat. Would you be surprised to learn that Jo Ann Emerson and Lloyd Smith had this switcheroo planned months ago?  You…

Don’t Expect Boehner To Play The Black Knight

The GOP didn’t really have a plan in place in case it lost. It certainly didn’t have a plan for getting snotclobbered. And if you try to spin Tuesday’s results as anything less than a good old-fashioned ass-kicking, you’re deluding yourself. Republicans Got Creamed I know Michelle Malkin found 20 things that went right on…

Here’s My Electoral Map Prediction

Yes, I’m feeling a wave toward Romney. My gut tells me this year is a lot like 1980. 1980 Was A Dead Heat The final Gallup poll that year had a dead heat. Time Magazine’s November 3, 1980, called the race a dead heat. So did Newsweek. The press was hoping John B. Anderson, a…

Here are the four principles of presence that Romney knocked out of the park. Command of the Facts When it came to facts—and to how those facts…

This Sums Up Everything I Believe Better Than I Ever Could

The Liberal Kirsten Powers (my favorite liberal at times) described the leftist media’s mania as “absolutely, utterly insane.” What triggered the maniacal insanity from MSNBC and The New York Times (among others) was Mitt Romney’s public dismay over the way Barack Obama’s State Department responded to terror attacks on US embassies in Egypt and Libya.…

Is the Romney Campaign Serious About Winning?

The Romney Campaign today reminded me of the McCain Campaign of 2008. I’m pretty good at ignoring bogus, fraudulent polls like the one CNN released tonight. In that poll, CNN announced a massive 52-46 national lead for Obama. If true, the race would be all but over. CNN, of course, cooked the books on this…

Here’s seven more warning signs that Obama’s 6-year campaign is about to implode:…

Romney-Ryan Have a Vision They Can Talk About

Why did murder skyrocket in Chicago as soon as Rahm Emanuel became mayor? Why have Americans become nastier and meaner since Barack Obama became president? As Michael Dukakis told us, a fish rots from the head down. Obama surrounds himself with people who thrive on decay and death. After four years, Obama has nothing to…
