Sarah Palin’s Record On Economics

November 15th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Palin the Fiscal Conservative Reformer. It’s not that Palin isn’t a social conservative (she is), but as governor, her social positions did not define her. It is very obvious that the media has sought to define her as a social conservative, in an effort to pigeon-hole her — and to diminish her reputation. What is […]

If I Were In Charge of the Padres

November 14th, 2008 · No Comments

It is outrageous what is occuring with the Padres.  Trading Jake Peavy and Khalil Greene is stupid.  Peavy is one of the top five starters in baseball and trading Greene while his market value is low.  Both of these are salary dumps and Padre fans don’t deserve this.  The whole Trevor Hoffman things stinks.  He’s […]

November 11th, 2008 · No Comments

FOX Sports on MSN – Ken Rosenthal – Big Unit’s days with D-backs could be numbered. Hoffman, 41, was the face of the franchise, a pillar of the San Diego community, a Padre since 1993. Yet, according to sources, the team pulled its offer — and reduction in salary from $7 million to $4 million […]

Hewitt: The Don’t Drill Democrats Plan Their Don’t Drill Strategy

November 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Hewitt: The Don’t Drill Democrats Plan Their Don’t Drill Strategy. Yesterday’s announcement that the president-elect would almost certainly use his executive order power to curtail previously authorized drilling on some public lands signals that the Obama Administration will be a friend of rising oil prices. I don’t think it is a coincidence that the price […]

Carol Platt Liebau: Worth Keeping In Mind

November 7th, 2008 · No Comments

Carol Platt Liebau: Worth Keeping In Mind. First, kudos to Roy Blunt for stepping down. John Boehner needs to join him. It is time for a newer, fresher crop of Republican leaders — some who can talk to young people as contemporaries and who have limited association with the various embarrassments of the past few […]

Leave Sarah Palin Alone

November 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

It truly amazes me the hate out there for Sarah Palin.  The mainstream media (MSM) has done nothing but do all they can to bury her and now some idiots from the McCain campaign are smearing her.  I’m fine with the election but am truly pissed off at what people are doing to a great […]

Hope Amid the Ruins by The Editors on National Review Online

November 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Hope Amid the Ruins by The Editors on National Review Online. But the most urgent task for conservatives is not to second-guess what decisions should have been made in 2003, 2005, or 2008. It is to devise an agenda — on health care, on taxes, on transportation, on energy — that Americans in the middle […]

Sympathies for Barack Obama’s Family

November 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

In what looks like a very historic day for Barack Obama tomorrow his grandmother passed away today.  Although I will not cast my vote for Barack Obama I hope he and his family will somehow be comforted through this loss.  There are many things more important than politics.  Madelyn Dunham sounded like an amazing person.
