It’s catchup time at DaTechGuy blog.
A quick reminder that last week’s Under the Fedora Column is available at Conservatively Speaking.net, The Minority Report, Zilla of the Resistance, NACBU & The Conservative Commune. A Peek
On the same subject Morning Joe argued Tuesday that Rush Limbaugh had hurt republicans because Democrats had won 4 of the last six presidential elections. Actually republicans are 3 for seven in elections since Rush was syndicated but here is a better measure.
Both Joe Scarborough and I are going to be fifty this year. From the day we were born till Rush Limbaugh went on the air happens to be 25 years, half our lives. During that time GOP controlled the House of Representatives exactly 0 years and the senate 6 years. At no time did the GOP control both houses of congress.
During the 25 years since Rush came on the air the GOP has controlled the house for 14 years and the senate for 10 years and for the first time in our lifetimes controlled both house and senate for 10 of them.
I’ll make that trade any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
Keep an eye out for this week’s on Wednesday or Thursday at all those sites.
Meanwhile if you didn’t Catch Robert Stacy McCain on DaTechGuy on DaRadio via the Money Matters Radio Network or FTR Radio Saturday, you don’t have to panic you can listen to it here.
This week we have scheduled CNN’s Newest and best acquisition Jake Tapper and in the second hour comedian Jim Labriola
Selective Outrage, DOMA and my Dad …is up at the Minority Report and at the Conservatory, a peek:
Speaking of Romney he has flipped flopped on Climate Change to my position. I think Moe Lane is exactly right on Romney, Conservatives aren’t afraid that they can’t force Mitt Romney to take conservative positions, we are afraid we can’t force him to Keep them.
I have had very little good to say about Jon Huntsman as a Republican candidate but his statement on Mitt Romney is exactly right “Mitt is a perfectly lubricated weather-vane.”
I’ll say this; a Romney Presidency would be interesting in the sense that during a second term with no more elections necessary to win we might find out what he actually believes.
You can find Under the Fedora twice a week at both of these fine sites.
