Learning not to play a losing hand

An admitted liberal gun nut shooting sports enthusiast realizes that gun control is a losing hand for the Democrats, but can’t figure out why. When it comes to gun violence, though, the conversation often stops at the tool, because it is more comfortable to blame it than to examine ourselves. The temptation at times like • Read More »

It’s a Miracle!

This is an appropriate follow-up to my post from yesterday about Obama’s “You Didn’t Build That” comment.  As Bill Whittle describes in his latest video, its appropos for the current President’s life… Glad we have an independent media that is willing to actually examine political candidates and their backgrounds.  The Main Stream Media (MSM) no • Read More »

On Colorado

More than a dozen people are dead more than 4 times that number are wounded.  Me? I grieve for the loss and demand justice for the shooter, as do the conservatives I follow on Twitter. Tragedies are not opportunities.  The professional left and the media (but I repeat myself) have no hesitations about capitalizing on • Read More »

I Didn’t Write This

I stumbled across this gem by Bill Whittle over at HotAir.  Enjoy…   I’ll echo what exKevin wrote about this being a long, hot summer for the Obama campaign.  His attacks on Romney aren’t sticking and its only a matter of time before more attention gets directed at Obama’s actual record. It could get ugly • Read More »

Bain the bomb

It’s so sad to see the professional left throw in the towel and admit defeat.  And by “sad”, I mean so very wonderful.  In the eyes of the media and most political observers, the past week has been a large negative for Mitt Romney. After all, they say, each day spent talking about Romney’s record • Read More »

Punching back fast and furiously

Keep it up, Mitt, and we just might love you after all. “If we want to talk about transparency, the real issue is, why has this president used his presidential power and executive privilege to keep the information about the Fast and Furious program from being explained to the American people?”  This line of attack • Read More »
