Why Romney REALLY lost, and how to win in the future

There is a dangerous myth circulating around the Net that Mitt Romney lost because he was not “conservative enough”, that millions of Republican voters supposedly stayed home on Election Day, and that the way to win future elections is to nominate “the most conservative candidate”. Any GOP problems with women, youngsters, and minorities are being explained away by claiming that ...

Vindication for Romney? Jeeps to Be Built in China Come 2014.

Gratuitous Jeep

In case you’ve forgotten last Fall’s election (and, really, who can blame you if you’ve wanted to), Mitt Romney was called a liar for nearly every statement he made, this one included.  Last October, the former governor from Massachusetts said he’d read a story claiming that Chrysler might move production of Jeeps from the U.S. to China.  At the time, ...

Republicans Advocate Surrender After Defeat


Evidently Romney campaign consultants were paying way too much attention to Michelle Obama’s War on Cafeteria Lunch Ladies. Consequently, when her husband offered a campaign built around Bread & Circuses; they countered with healthy eating and free–range elephants. A role reversal that proved fatal. More than once I’ve heard discouraged conservatives complain that ignorant voters were responsible for re–electing Obama, ...

America You Really Blew It

America had the perfect opportunity to turn this country around and get it back on the road to prosperity, but America, you blew it. We had standing in front of us, the perfect man to get us out of the situation we find ourselves in. A leader, a successful businessman, a successful Governor, a good man, an honest man, a ...

The GOP Got Punk’d


It’s over. So far, I have seen the media, libertarians and independent voters, fraud, and liberal thuggery blamed for the GOP loss last night. None of these, individually or collectively, is to blame for the fact that Obama was re-elected. The blame lies in our own inability to combat the culture of dependency and present a vision that combats the ...

One Last Word to the Troops Before the Election


As President Obama ends his bitter and petty campaign of character assassination against his challenger Mitt Romney, one is struck by just how low the lofty orator has fallen from his 2008 bid. The erstwhile freshman Senator rode into office on a wave of disingenuous half-truths and outright lies promising “hope and change.” But at least Obama sounded vaguely optimistic ...

For Love of Country

love of country

Speaking in Springfield Ohio, Barack Obama mentioned Mitt Romney.  As soon as he mentioned Romney’s name, the crowd began to boo. Obama responded, “No, no, no. Don’t boo, vote. Voting is the best revenge.” Mitt Romney questioned the President’s rhetoric  at a campaign stop in New Hampshire. “Vote for revenge?  Let me tell you what I’d like to tell you: ...

Chocolate-Covered Pretzels


It can be argued that one of the most important and treasured cultural aspects in the Black community is our faith. We are overwhelmingly  Christian. The church has played a key role in our cultural and spiritual development almost from the time our ancestors were first dragged here in chains. At times, God and His church were all Black Americans ...

Four More Days


In the latest jobs report, American unemployment rose to 7.9 percent. The unemployed number increased by 170,000, to 12.3 million. That rate is higher than the day Barack Obama took office. Were workers unemployed long enough to have been dropped from Labor Department statistics added back in, the rate of unemployment would be closer to 14 percent. According to Keith ...

Still Undecided? Maybe This Will Help.

I do not understand how anyone can be undecided at this stage of the game. The two candidates, Romney and Obama are the complete opposites of one another, Romney for less government and Obama for big government. It should be a no brainer, either you want more government intrusion in your life, or you do not. It is so simple ...

Out of the Mouths of (Political) Babes

Election Letter B 002

Parenting is hard. Good parenting, even harder. But there are moments during the decades we commit to our children that we see real return on that investment. This past week, while discussing the election and events in Benghazi with my 10 year old daughter, I have experienced countless numbers of those moments. She is finally getting it. If you’ve read ...

Romney Rising


In Ohio, voting machines are changing a vote cast for Mitt Romney to Barack Obama. Maybe that is what the “progressive” Democratic Party needs to combat lower voter turnout for the Democratic ticket. For “progressive” Democrats and their much heralded ground game, which in early voting has not been as effective as advertised, perhaps their real problem is that more ...

Reasons and numbers


When compared to 2008, Barack Obama’s early vote advantage has dropped by 22 points.  That is according to Gallup, one of if not the most respected American poll. In this year’s early voting Mitt Romney leads Obama by seven points, 52-45 percent.  Four years ago, Obama led John McCain among early voters by fifteen-points, 55-40 percent. The latest National Public ...

Romney Gains, Obama Faithful Throw Fits


The Battleground Poll, a bipartisan poll taken last week, in addition to showing that Mitt Romney has a 52 percent to 45 percent advantage among middle class voters, is projecting Romney will defeat Barack Obama by a 52 percent to 47 percent margin. Pollster Ed Goeas said that while a strong voter turnout effort might help Obama close the gap ...
