14Jul10

Why do the American people want congress to change hands to Republican control? It might have something to do with the fact that 55% of voters consider the president to be a socialist. And press secretary Robert Gibbs is right – it has tons to do with the economy, and the perception that Obama’s socialist […]

Who’s Extreme

14Jun10

Not Swayed

12May10

The American people have faced the full force of liberal propaganda – it’s hard to imagine anyone not getting the message – the new immigration crackdown in Arizona is bigoted, racist and hateful. After this barrage, support must have dropped to single digits! Fully 73% say they approve of requiring people to produce documents verifying […]

Even after all the media excitement over the passage of Castro Care, and a week of an intensive sales pitch by President Obama, the country is still not impressed with his health reform plan.

In Fidel ity

19Mar10

Remember when Barack Obama descended into office under the soft landing of angels wings. Ah, how Axelrod, Plouffe et al must long for the good old days, when people were fooled by the media hype and the power of pillow talk. Now, the president’s opinion on matters of great import is of little consequence. QUESTION: […]


As the Democrats ponder pursuing the “Screw the People Strategy,” they may want to take a look at the new Gallup Poll, which confirms what we already know. The STPS is really a Screw the Democrats Strategy… just another clever way to alienate independent voters. Democrats support passing the bill by reconciliation by a margin […]

Every Breath

22Jan10

Scott Brown breathes, Dems collapse. Now, with independent voters souring on Obama, vulnerable lawmakers are likely to be reluctant about casting votes on other controversial issues such as caps on carbon emissions, tax reform, and a revamp of entitlement programs ahead of November’s midterm elections. The White House may have to pare this year’s legislative […]


Depressing Race

14Jan10

Taking polls, and trusting them, is dangerous work in an election like the one coming up Tuesday in Massachusetts. As a special election, the race between Scott Brown and Martha Coakley is the only election being decided on that day. Either you’re very excited about going to vote to replace Ted Kennedy, or, the day […]


Believing Scott

12Jan10

Pollster Scott Rasmussen is regularly attacked by Democrats as a biased, or technically flawed, pollster. Judging from the new attack ad the state Democratic Committee is running against Scott Brown, it seems that when push comes to shove, they are believers. It was a Rasmussen poll released a week ago that showed Scott Brown closing […]
