Americans willing to pay higher taxes if spending cuts made

tax form

A new Rasmussen Reports poll shows that a portion of respondents feel that higher taxes are acceptable, but only if real spending cuts are also made. President Obama wants Congress to hike tax rates right now and have Congress discuss spending cuts at some later time. The reality being that the federal government will get more money to spend and will likely never ...

The Day After…

Screen Shot 2012-11-08 at 12.50.27 AM

Well, we lost.  Mitt Romney didn’t win comfortably.  BUT, Republicans maintained control of the House of Representatives.  In one of the most ignominious highlights of the night, the GOP lost two senate seats – increasing the Democratic majority by two.  The current makeup is 55 Democrats to 45 Republicans.  In a milestone for the ladies, 20% of the U.S. Senate ...

After casting my ballot for Mitt Romney, I tuned into Julie Mason’s The Press Pool on Sirius XM during my three hour trek back to Maryland.  Mason’s guest was Pittsburgh-Tribune Review staff writer and editorial page columnist Salena Zito, who detailed how Romney could win Pennsylvania tonight.  One indicator was Romney’s rally in Bucks County, which drew 30,000 people.  She ...

My Prediction: Romney Wins Comfortably

The day has arrived.  In about twenty-four hours, the stains of Barack Obama will be wiped clean and honor and dignity will be restored to The White House under President-elect Mitt Romney.  It hasn’t been an easy road.  Conservatives waged a brutal primary battle that left us with a scarred nominee – Romney – coming out of the gate to ...

Mitt Romney Is Wrong On Defense Department Cuts

Pentagon

Mitt Romney has made the prevention of President Barack Obama’s sequestration plan one of his primary campaign talking points. He’s probably done this for two reasons: it plays well with voters in Virginia and veterans, but it also helps with those who want the U.S. to have the strongest military possible. There’s nothing wrong with the U.S. having a strong ...

Is It ‘Revenge of the Soccer Moms?’

Screen Shot 2012-10-24 at 12.58.03 AM

This election will be decided by women.  That’s what the experts say, which is why the left-wing and the Obama campaign were so adamant in driving the wedge issues of abortion and contraception to consolidate their support.  During the Democratic National Convention, abortion was front and center.  As I’ve said ad nauseum, it was Abortion Fest 2012.  The only thing ...

Yes, budget cuts can help the economy

The left tells us that there is no way to keep the economy going if federal spending is reduced – they are wrong. On a simplistic and illogical level sure, taking any money out of the economy might shrink it, but that is the same short-term thinking that has led to a non-recovery from the prior recession, lackluster employment and ...

Biden Unhinged in VP Debate, while Ryan exuded self-control

Screen Shot 2012-10-12 at 9.56.46 AM

  Last night’s Vice Presidential debate did put more pressure on Vice President Biden, who was tasked with delivering the same old progressive talking points about taxes, foreign policy, abortion, and health care – albeit with a little more spiritedness.  However, the pervasive grinning, smiling, and interrupting came off as egregiously arrogant and condescending.  Biden conveyed a “I’m gonna kill ...

Six Trillion Dollar Man: A Lyrical Evisceration of Obama

Screen Shot 2012-10-09 at 11.29.05 AM

Justen Charters, co-founder of Resistance 44, is sick of Obamanomics.  After all, President Obama  is “the six trillion dollar man” who “doesn’t have a budget plan”  and “basic economics is something he doesn’t understand.”  Enjoy! #obamastyle P.S. Justen, you didn’t make this song – somebody else made this happen.

Romney Destroys Obama in First Debate, Left-wingers Go Nuts

Screen Shot 2012-10-04 at 4.43.56 AM

We all got a shot of life Wednesday night from Mitt Romney.  I received a lot of flak, and some insults, for my previous post castigating Romney for lacking joie de vivre, but he came out swinging and left the president looking for his teleprompter.  While some posted polls in the comment section to show Romney’s campaign wasn’t in trouble since we’re ...
