So What Could Possibly Go Wrong
American Thinker, by C. Edmund Wright

Original Article

Posted By:Passion, 11/9/2012 8:41:51 AM

The story of the 2012 election is that voters still blame Republicans for systemic problems caused by liberalism, and yet they credit Obama for victories brought about by applied conservatism. Now how does this happen? The answer is both a short story and part of a longer festering narrative. Consider: during the Republican primary season, half of Mitt Romney's consultants told him to call Newt Gingrich the devil. The other half told him to merely to claim that the devil worshiped Gingrich. Then these same sorcerers all told Mitt to call Barack Obama "a nice guy."

So so so much money left on the table by the campaign, thanks to the consultant class and their squishy strategies.

Funny....the Dems never worry about running the most extreme leftists possible but are constantly advising us to put up more moderate Republicans.

Perhaps we should coach our own team.

Just a thought.

Hope everyone who is happy with the election is enjoying obama's stock market. If the tea party can't become mainstream after whats coming in the next two years we should all just apply for welfare. Sappy republicans who would call obama a nice guy are not welcome.

And I say, "Why do you believe the polls about this, when you already know these people are in the tank for Obama?" We are living in a constant Propaganda War. One of the fundamental rules of Propaganda is make sure your opponent has bad information. I don't believe any of it.

I find Mr. Wright's suggestions that the right needs to move more aggressively to "correct the record" and that "the truth matters" interesting, but in the wake of November 6, somewhat ridiculous. For more than 50 years, the left has been working and has had considerable success at taking over our education system. The result is that a majority of our population is not only uneducated, but essentially ineducable. Keeping in mind that, in the 60s, the Jesuits took a hard left and never looked back, it is still useful to remember one of their most cherished maxims, Give me a child until the age of six and I will give you the man."

Correction: maxim should have read "until the age of seven."

C. Edmund Wright's thinking parallels my own.

No overall strategy, combined with the traditional Moderate GOP "Kick Me" signs worn proudly on Moderate GOP behinds. Sheesh.

No More 'Electable' moderates!

We need someone who will fight for conservatives. Remember Ronald Reagan was considered an easy candidate for the Dems to defeat.

I have been a California 'decline to state' for at least 20 years. I actually registered as a Republican, proudly, this election. I cringed at the campaign sometimes, was immensely proud we could put up a good man as a candidate, I seethed at the vulgarity and crassness and lies of the left and was so frustrated with the media. But sad to say, if the 'campaign' can't figure out what do to to GOTV, and can't figure out how to challenge the other side's behavior and call a spade a space (no racial inference intended), and calls Obama 'a good man', and can't elucidate policies, I'm going back to being an independent.

Can we fire the advisors to the Republican Party?
Please?
Karl Rove: fire him.
Reince Priebus: fire him.
John Boehner: fire him.
"Not a choice, but an echo."
What we wanted was a choice.
What we got was "socialism lite."
What we saw was a savage and unprincipled war, practiced by the left, on everything which is good and decent and honorable in this country. No attack was too scurrilous. No incident was too petty. Every honest observation was treated as an attack.

No remark by any Democrat was ever pounced on, magnified, and blown up to a billboard. None of Zippy's gaffes became the talk of comedy shows. demonRats say stupid stuff all the time; their remarks are never thrown back in their faces; they are regarded as honorable despite their dishonor.

But the Republicans: they cannot fight. They just sit by, passively, while they are savaged.
You can't win that way. Once Romney had obtained sufficient delegates to win the nomination, ALL the other candidates should have banded together to back him, and run ads blasting the WH attack machine. But no, this did not happen. Instead the pubbies just let the Dems divide them, and conservatives stayed home. In droves.

What a pathetic excuse for a party!

The only way to get your message out to the braindead masses that vote for Demon-RATS is through the MSM.

The MSM is a fully owned subsidiary of the DNC.

Not that it matters any more. As soon as NØbama makes about 20,000,000 illegals into citizens before the 2014 elections, every red state will permanently turn blue. And you know every one of them will vote Demon-RAT from now on.

Game over. The Demon-RATS won. Just hope that NØbamacare provides free KY Jelly for all the times we are going to have to just bend over and take it from now on...

My only joy is knowing that we at least know what is coming. Imagine the shock on all the people who actually voted for NØbama who don't have a clue what they are in for...

The recent Twitter kerfuffle between Matt Drudge and the Obama/media/academic complex over the ObamaCare tax demonstrates in plain view and without question something many of us have known for years: while the organized left insist that they are the only ones smart enough to run the world, they remain astonishingly ignorant of how it works. They’re even ignorant of how the most fundamental parts of laws that they champion operate.

Reince´s Solutions Miss the Mark

Posted By: Passion- 1/27/2014 8:33:20 AM     Post Reply
In typical establishment fashion, Reince Priebus and the wizards at the RNC have looked at the last presidential nomination cycle and learned the wrong lessons. They have concluded that not allowing Mitt Romney a smooth coronation was the problem, and they are out to make sure their anointed one never has to face that again. As such, the prescriptions for change recently announced by Priebus will only make things worse. This is what happens when a national party is isolated from -- and igorant of -- its nation.

Sports offers teachable insights into the leftist mindset, and even cursory observations verify that everything is political with these folks. This is unavoidable, I suppose, when your power is derived from electoral or public relation successes of the grievance industry. Thus, we know for sure liberals could not simply enjoy Monday´s BCS Title Game the way normal folks did.

Barone Report: Base Instinctively

While the Republican establishment was obsessing over the government shutdown, the evils of Ted Cruz, and the latest Jurassic media poll designed specifically to fool them, they remained blind to the massive iceberg that was about to nearly destroy the McAuliffe money machine campaign. As such, they missed a golden opportunity to nudge Ken Cuccinelli across the finish line -- an opportunity the GOP base understood. While Michael Barone did not say this in so many words, these are the inescapable conclusions of his Virginia race analysis.

In contemplating the bizarre, incompetent, and feckless behavior of House Speaker John Boehner over the years, I am reminded of the signature scene from the 1969 Western comedy Support Your Local Sheriff: In it,the sheriff (James Garner) ridicules dim-witted prisoner Joe Dandy (Bruce Dern), deriding him and maintaining full control even though his jail has no bars. The money scene is from 2:40 through 3:30: The cell on the right is yours. We don't have any bars yet...but we're gonna operate just as if the bars are there...so while you're in this jail, you stay on that side of the line,

Mandate Delay Shames Roberts,

There has been a lot of conversation, and rightfully so, about the ramifications of the Obama administration´s potentially illegal delay of the employer mandate portion of the train wreck known as ObamaCare. Many are saying that this proves that ObamaCare will fail and go down as one of the all-time "told you so" moments in political history -- while others insist that the delay is a stroke of political brilliance and/or exemplary caution needed for such an undertaking.

Did Bill Maher Just Trump Bush on Islam?
American Thinker, by C. Edmund Wright    Original Article

As you probably have heard, a few days ago Bill Maher shocked his liberal guest -- and much of the world -- by stating very correctly and succinctly that it is "liberal bullsh_t" to equate Christianity and Islam with respect to terror. The bluntness, not to mention the shocking accuracy of the statement from this particular source, had the social media universe all lit up over the weekend. It was surely my first "fist pump" ever in response to Maher.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results. President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.
