Good Enough for the Gipper

I have heard from a few over the past few days, mostly callers on talk radio, but also on internet blogs, who proclaim that they just can’t bring themselves to vote for a Mormon. I know, its not a large group, but where there are few, perhaps there are others who are less bold, but [...]

Rick Santorum’s Best Friends Love Mitt Romney

A quick look at the list of congressman and senators who have formally endorsed a republican presidential candidate leads to some interesting observations. According to Roll Call, the house blog page, 91 house members have formally endorsed Mitt Romney. Rick Santorum has 6. One has to wonder…why do so few of these former team members [...]

What Every Romney Supporter Can Do Today

As one peruses the internet this am, one finds a hodge podge of bloggers and others who either want to make the Republican primary continue into oblivion, or who want to coalesce around Team Romney. I have a suggestion for those of the second group, who want to see Mitt as the nominee. It won’t [...]

Getting Beyond the Messenger

With Romney’s overwhelming Illinois victory, many pundits and voters are now apparently beginning to recognize that Romney, in fact, does possess the knowledge, skills and abilities to be the president. Thank you, Illinois. And among a host of good signs, one of the messages the media is spreading today is that Romney is becoming more [...]

Obama’s Pending Right Turn

As Mitt Romney begins to lock down the nomination, and the political discourse shifts to the Donkeys versus Elephants, attentive voters from across the spectrum will want to be on the lookout. As the poll numbers begin to show Mitt Romney more and more taking it to the leftists, Obama will, in my estimation, implement [...]

Politics Isn’t a Team Sport After All

My blog entry here yesterday, No Honor Among Politicians, highlighted the irony and hypocrisy which is evident in Rick Santorum’s campaign in recent days. He spends his time of late labeling other candidates as “dishonest” and “unable to tell the truth” to the American people, but he himself cannot be honest with voters or himself, [...]

No Honor Among Politicians

There is a time honored practice among American political office seekers, particularly conservatives. It is that during the course of selecting a party’s nominee, when it becomes evident that one cannot, in fact, acquire enough delegate support to actually enter the convention with the needed support, one withdraws or suspends their campaign, and allows the [...]

The Myth of Romney’s Scorched Earth Attack Ads

We have been told by numerous pundits and talking heads that Romney has won a number of primary and caucus contests, particularly Florida and Michigan, due to some super PAC’s attack ads against Gingrich and Santorum. Gingrich and Santorum have both whinned incessantly about this. These stories have been told and repeated mindlessly for weeks [...]

Romney’s Quiet Tea Party

  I’ve had little time of late for blogging, but as Santorum and Gingrich continue to misrepresent themselves to voters as “the most conservative” candidates, I had to comment on one observation. It occurred to me that a number of avid Tea Party adherents, and other likeminded voters have recently endorsed Mitt Romney. I speak [...]

America’s Mechanic in Chief

Do you remember the presidential campaign of 2008? The Obama team effectively used the metaphor of the automobile–American Economy’s car, being driven off the road and into the ditch. They blamed Bush and some pre Pelosi congress (when was that, by the way?) for the bloody incident whereby our beloved sedan (economy) ended up stuck. [...]
