The Democrat “Bush Tax Cuts” trap REDUX

Mr: Scott:  There's an old old saying on Earth Mr Sulu, fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

Mitt Romney bravely follows behind Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin!

Last week I had a meeting with a pol who will remain nameless. We talked for a while on a lot of subjects and election 2012 came up. He is an unabashed backer of Mitt Romney, called him one of the smartest guys he ever met, said he understood economics like few others, and said … Continue reading Mitt Romney bravely follows behind Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin!

It's not often that I disagree with Rush Limbaugh AND Sarah Palin but it is my opinion that the Obama Tax deal is an excellent deal for the GOP and the right, particularly on the political side. 1.

Sometimes Joe Scarborough just NAILS it!

I'm very hard on Joe Scarborough mostly because I like him (I'm always harder on people I like because I expect more from them) but today he said something that is incredibly important. He was going on about the hypocrisy of both right and left on deficits and said this: "There are a couple of … Continue reading Sometimes Joe Scarborough just NAILS it!

Democrats shoot themselves in the foot! Reject Deal!

As I've already said the idea of extending the Bush Tax cuts rates on a temporary basis is a trap. By doing it in a temporary way the democrats are given a stark choice on raising taxes again in two years. There is only one thing they could do that would be worse politically; and … Continue reading Democrats shoot themselves in the foot! Reject Deal!

The “I am a sucker ad” by Move on.

Take a look at this ad that Moveon has produced by merging youtube videos together: What do you have here? A group of self identified dupes who actually believed the hype that we conservatives and some liberals saw in 2008. It is like a political Darwin award. Oh and to the woman who says she … Continue reading The “I am a sucker ad” by Move on.

This is the best deal I could get and it’s not my fault

When I left this morning the MSM media was groaning and complaining about the president's compromise of taxes but Wall Street was delighted and stock shares were going up.

The Lonely Conservative explains why Morning Joe didn’t quote Bob Scheiffer

Via this tweet the Lonely Conservative shows why Morning Joe didn't have any clips of Bob Scheiffer this morning It looks to me that this is a conversation really doesn't help advance their template today so I guess Scheiffer is off the table, we'll leave it to Breitbart TV.

Morning Joe is in mourning this morning…

...over the White House compromising over the Bush Tax Cuts™ Mika looks like she is going to throw up.  Joe can't believe it, you'd never know he was a republican, and Jon "I ran Newsweek so well that it sold for less than a Whopper Jr." Meacham is now re-evaluating Barack Obama. Well you know … Continue reading Morning Joe is in mourning this morning…

The Tax Cut Trap for the Democrats

When the initial Bush tax cuts were proposed the making of the tax cuts temporary was a compromise that democrats and liberal republicans managed to forge to keep their constituents happy.

The Tax Cut misconception

As I was going door to door yesterday I stopped at a book store that absolutely screams "progressive" but is a mostly cool place with a fair amount of Anime and some wonderful used old volumes. At the store I asked the question I ask at almost every business, what would you do to stimulate … Continue reading The Tax Cut misconception

I have a question for those who say Christine O’Donnell is losing big in Del

You know the folks who spend all their time laughing.
