Do They Part

09Jul10

A new ad attacking Harry Reid’s record for Nevada offers a glimpse of what Democrats will be facing in the fall… a record that can’t be defended. Watch as The Republican National Committee marries Barack Obama to Harry Reid. Republicans launched a new television ad targeting Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) as President Barack […]


Defending Angle

22Jun10

Sharron Angle, the Tea Party candidate who is the Republican nominee against Harry Reid in Nevada, is defending herself against Reid’s attacks.


Pork Power

15Jun10

Most incumbents running for reelection are pretending they’ve never been to Washington. Not Harry Reid – he’s bragging about his Pork Power. The theme of the campaign launch has been “No one can do more,” and is intended to remind Nevada voters how lucky they are to have Reid. Republican Sharron Angle is reminding voters […]


Victory Angle

09Jun10

A Tea Party candidate says  she wants to eliminate the Department of Education and Social Security and get the U.S. out of the UN. How does she do in her campaign to grab the GOP nomination to challenge Harry Reid? Conservative outsider and tea-party pick Sharron Angle handily defeated more established rivals and appeared on […]


Craven Specter

07May10

How much fun would it be to be the Democrat trying to unseat Arlen Specter, a recent convert to the party? Lots of fun, I expect, as it looks like an easy project.


Deliberate Lies

27Apr10

Were they deliberately misleading the media, and the country? A new tape has emerged that offers further evidence that the racist epithets and spitting that congressmen claimed were part of the little health care march never occurred. Writes Andrew Breitbart of BigGovernment.com: When I offered a reward of $100,000 to be donated to the United […]


Demon Pass

20Mar10

Were the Dems ever seriously considering using the dreaded Deem and Pass tactic? They now say they won’t use it, which may mean they’ve got the votes to pass Castro Care without the controversial move. This will be a spectacular weekend as spring is sprung. Don’t waste it watching media counts on health care. It’s […]


The vulgarity of the Obama push for Castro Care has triggered a socialist ally, the Washington Post, to raise its eyebrows. WE UNDERSTAND the administration’s sense of urgency on health-care reform. But what is intended as a final sprint threatens to turn into something unseemly and, more important, contrary to Democrats’ promises of transparency and […]


Baking Bart

09Mar10

Has Bart Stupak’s price been paid? Prospects are good for resolving a dispute over abortion that has led some House Democrats to threaten to withhold support of President Obama’s health-care overhaul, a key Michigan Democrat said Monday. Is he ready to make a deal to get the senate bill through the House? “I’m more optimistic […]


It’s Done

27Feb10

That’s my prediction. The Democrats will give up on health reform. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Friday that President Barack Obama’s historic health care drive was closer to passage after a high-stakes summit with Republicans opposed to the overhaul. Talking nonsense has been a big part of the project for a long time, and […]


No Gonna Happen

25Feb10

Was the health care summit really about trying to pave the road for jamming the legislation through the senate using the reconciliation tool, inappropriately, to circumvent the filibuster in the senate? My answer. No. President Obama has developed a scaled-down version of health care reform that would cost about a quarter of current plans and […]


Endangered Colorado Democrat Michael Bennett has written a letter to Harry Reid asking him to keep the Public Option alive. Dear Leader Reid: We respectfully ask that you bring for a vote before the full Senate a public health insurance option under budget reconciliation rules. The letter is co-signed by Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New […]


Not One Job

17Feb10

The stimulus program was rolled out a year ago today, so lots of people are talking about whether it’s been a success or not. The president, naturally, thinks it’s been a boon. President Obama credits the one-year-old economic stimulus legislation with staving off a second depression. But in remarks a short time ago in Washington, […]


The Albatross

16Feb10

Analysts are suddenly suggesting that a GOP reclaiming of the Senate is not out of the question. President Obama kicks off what might be called his “Save the Senate” tour this week, heading west to campaign for two embattled Democrats trailing badly against Republican challengers – including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada. With […]


Might Judd Gregg provide the bridge to restarting the legislative process on health care? He’s giving it a try. “I’m not on their reach-out list, so nothing may come of this,” Gregg said in an interview Wednesday. “But I’m ready to sit down and try to be helpful.” Would the White House work with Gregg? […]


Buy Order

23Dec09

Will the dirty, arm twisting, backroom politics of the Democrats health care effort be allowed to stand? Believers in the American system of government are making a fight. Looks like the steadily growing list of constitutional, ethical and political outrages that constitute the Harry Reid version of Obamacare is sparking a rebellion in the states, as […]
