5 Things Newt Would Rather Florida Voters Forget

(1) Comments | Posted January 27, 2012 | 2:54 PM

Don't bet on Newt if beating Obama is the goal.

Just recently I made up my mind to vote for Mitt Romney for president. In assessing the rather weak field of GOP candidates, I believe Romney is the only one who has the experience, temperament, steady hand...

Fellow black Republican perpetuates stereotypes of blacks

I received the following Facebook posting from Eddie Adams of Tampa earlier this morning:

Why Herman Cain Won, and Why You Might See Rick Perry in Mickey Mouse Slippers Next Week

(6) Comments | Posted September 26, 2011 | 7:44 PM

Herman Cain's upset victory in the Republican Party of Florida's straw poll has political watchers wondering what happened; but the explanation is rather simple.

Before explaining the Cain factor, back up a few weeks to the Iowa straw poll where soon-to-be-former candidate Michele Bachmann won that state's less meaningful poll....

Handicapping the Likely GOP Presidential Candidates

(3) Comments | Posted February 9, 2011 | 4:00 PM

Expect a bruising campaign season. And brace yourself. It has already started.

With 2010 elections now well behind us, jockeying for the Republican nomination for president begins in earnest. GOP control of Congress and the White House will largely hinge upon how well Republicans manage their new majority in the...

So-Called 'Conservatives' Should Find Something Else to Bellyache About

Obama's speech to kids is hardly an important issue worth getting worked up over

Slap me silly and call me Norton, but I just don't get the "outrage" over Obama speaking to a bunch of school children. This was front-page news in my local paper this morning -- top of...

More Reckless Spending on the Way

Democrats prepare to saddle future generations with nearly a trillion dollars in additional debt

Barack Obama is our new president calling for change, but nothing has changed other than Washington politicians leaving nothing but change in the pockets of our children.

The Democrats' "economic stimulus" package is nothing more than...

McCain Brings Out NFL Two Minute Offense

(1) Comments | Posted October 17, 2008 | 4:35 PM

Is a desperate Hail Mary pass enough? And what's up with ticking off the Dallas Cowboys fans?

My friend Ron Danner e-mailed me this afternoon asking if I thought tonight was "do or die for McCain?" I gave him my short and hard analysis: it's already over and the...

Republican's View: Not McCain's Night

(0) Comments | Posted October 8, 2008 | 6:36 AM

Style matters, and McCain doesn't have it.

If you were looking for political theater at last night's presidential "debate," you were sorely disappointed. And if you were a McCain supporter looking for the maverick to land a knock-out punch as I was, it was a double-dose of disappointment.

Simply put,...

McCain's Debate Ploy Backfires

(0) Comments | Posted September 25, 2008 | 3:49 PM

What happened to the Straight Talk?

In politics, there are no good political ploys, only stupid political ploys. The good ones you never know even existed because they are so good you can't tell it's a ploy. The bad ones you know about because the stooge who did it ends...

Regardless of Who Wins the Election, Start Teaching Your Kids Mandarin

(Note to Joe Six-pack: that's Chinese to you and me.)

With less than six weeks until Election Day, presidential campaign activity is heating up. John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin gave him a nice bounce in the polls following the GOP convention, but after ten days of the media's anti-Palin...

What the Democrats are Afraid Of

(0) Comments | Posted September 4, 2008 | 1:03 PM

Sarah Palin delivered an out of the park speech last night. And John McCain can be proud of his selection and ignore the personal and political attacks the media and the Obama campaign have smeared her with over the last week.

Palin introduced herself to voters by giving a speech...

GOP nominee's pick is the best since Kennedy picked LBJ - but for totally different reasons

Slap me silly and call me stupid, but John McCain is on his way to being the 44th President of the United States of America.

George W. Bush Has Left Our Economy in Shambles

(14) Comments | Posted July 30, 2008 | 1:06 PM

Reckless spending by the G.O.P. is the cause of our fiscal woes

Make no mistake George W. Bush is no conservative. Sure, under the tutelage of Karl Rove, Bush managed to fool a significant number of voters into believing he shared their conservative values. But you can't argue with his...

McCain's Veepstakes Dilemma

(25) Comments | Posted June 12, 2008 | 7:26 AM

GOP nominee must decide which void his running mate should fill.

The "veepstakes" talk has begun to heat up in earnest now that both parties' presumptive nominees for president have been picked. While pundits focus their short attention spans on the current discussion of "Will Obama pick Hillary Clinton?"...

Post-Implosion Politics

Shortly after it became obvious Senator John McCain was going to get the Republican nomination for President of the United States, self-proclaimed "conservatives" and blow-hards like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Anne Coulter, and Laura Ingraham began to trash McCain, pronounce he wasn't conservative, and say they wouldn't vote for him....

With less than a week to go before the first in the nation Iowa Caucuses and the New Hampshire Primary to follow just days later, it's a fitting time to assess the Democrat field of candidates running for president. You can read my assessment of the Republican field here....
