Who Are The Real Conservatives ?

Jack Kerwick George W. Bush left the White House with an approval rating hovering around 30%. Courtesy of his tenure, and his second term specifically, by 2008 large numbers of conservatives ceased to identify themselves as “Republican,” such was their shame. At least one million of them refused to vote for John McCain. But two […] Continue reading →

Ted Cruz Rising? 2016 Poll Puts Him in Top Tier

How quickly things change. Not much more than a year ago conservatives were pleading with Mitt Romney to select Marco Rubio as his vice-presidential running-mate, Rand Paul was a 2010-winner footnote, and Ted Cruz was heading into a primary runoff election after placing a distant second in the first round of ballots for the Senate […] Continue reading →

How Mitt Romney Won My Vote

Back in May of 1999, I made a decision to leave the Democratic Party. It was an easy decision. I had been a Democrat for 11 years. I voted for Dukakis when I was a committed leftist. But, later, when I became a pro-life conservative, there was no room for me in the party. So […] Continue reading →

Team Obama Blames John Kerry for Debate Loss

While Rasmussen will be a little more volatile, Romney has surged into the […] Continue reading →

How the Liberal Media Ruined Obama

It’s not an “Incumbent Curse,” as MSNBC would call Obama’s performance at Wednesday’s first presidential debate.

And it was not that Mitt Romney […] Continue reading →

A Historic Debate Failure

By the time of Thursday night’s debate between Vice President Biden and Congressman Ryan, the polls will reflect the early consequences of President Obama’s disastrous debate performance from Wednesday night.

He tried ignoring his base in the primary when it was rallying behind marriage in North Carolina and rallying behind Chick-fil-a when it was under attack, and that didnt work. Then he tried just scaring people into voting against Obama, and that didnt work. Finally, Mitt Romney tried conservatism at Wednesday nights debateand that did. […] Continue reading →

A Wise and Frugal King

Wednesday night, Americans witnessed the first debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. By all accounts, Governor Romney soundly bested the failed president both on his command of the facts and in his demeanor. While seeing Governor Romney dominate the debate is very encouraging, it does not change the reality that America is […] Continue reading →

Obamacare and Romneycare Are Not Identical

There are a lot of differences between Obamacare and Romneycare, even though President Barack Obama said that the two plans were based on an “identical model” during the first presidential debate in Denver on Wednesday night. “We’ve seen this model work very well,” Obama said, “in Massachusetts.” Wrong, countered Mitt Romney. As Massachusetts governor, he […] Continue reading →
