Deliver Us From RINOs

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

H/T: Race42008: According to the American Spectator, Senator Tom Coburn, aka Senator Trainwreck, is considering entering the 2008 Presidential race.  This is blockbuster news.  Unlike any candidate currently in the field, Sen. Tom Coburn would not only placate all conservatives, but would excite conservatives of every stripe.
A former OBGYN, Coburn has delivered thousands of babies […]

Schumer Whifs Again

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

Adding to DSCC Chairman Chuck Schumer’s recruiting failures in Minnesota and Oregon, Rep. Nick Lampson said through a spokesman Monday that he will not challenge Sen. Jon Cornyn.  Lampson emerged as a star in the Democrat Party when he took the seat vacated by former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay.  Many Democrats hoped that he […]

I’m having some tech issues.  Please be patient as I work to resolve them.

Republicans for Amnesty

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Yesterday, a majority of the Republican caucus voted against stripping the amnesty portion of the immigration bill.  Among those supporting amnesty were several Senators who are up next year, including Senators Coleman, Collins, and Smith.  This is perhaps the most troubling development so far.  A majority of Senate Republicans oppose enforcing the laws of the […]

Democrat Disharmony

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

The far left was elated when Rep. Mark Udall announced his Senate bid, thinking that it offered them a great chance to pick up an open Republican seat.  Now, though, they may be having buyer’s remorse.  Udall signed on to a war funding bill that would not set deadlines, thus turning on the Democrat base, with […]

Two More Oregon Dems Say No

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Rep. David Wu and former Rep. Les AuCoin both announced that they will not challenge Sen. Gordon Smith.  Secretary of State Bill Bradbury is also out of the picture.  Sen. Smith had been a top target for Democrats this cycle, but Democrats are nearing the point where they should be happy to win 40% of the […]

Immigration Deform

Monday, May 21st, 2007

The immigration bill on which several Senators agreed last week is a disgrace.  It is unfair to both Americans and immigrants, and it fails to address the real problem of open borders.  Instead, it simply serves the Senators’ interests by allowing them to return to their respective states and say, “Look, I supported an immigration […]

Game, Set, Match Smith

Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

Rep. Earl Blumenauer announced today that he will not challenge Sen. Gordon Smith.  He was the third and final chance for Democrats to recruit a viable challenger to Sen. Smith, who can now be put on the safe list.  Former Gov. Kitzhaber and Rep. Peter DeFazio would have been stronger candidates, but both had already […]

Franken a Laughing Matter

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

Democrats consider Sen. Norm Coleman one of the most vulnerable Republicans in the country, but you’d never know it by the poll numbers.  Coleman is drubbing the Democrat frontrunner 54-32.  While normally an incumbent with that kind of a lead would not look completely safe, Franken’s name recognition is over 80%, and his negatives are already […]

Schaffer Makes It Official

Monday, May 14th, 2007

Former Rep. Bob Schaffer Saturday night announced that he will challenge Rep. Tom Udall to replace retiring Sen. Wayne Allard.  The announcement comes after a misstep with the Teller County GOP, many of whose members already said that Schaffer was running.  Now, though, that is behind him and he’s moving full speed ahead at the […]
