Is Ron Paul really finished?
It’s the beginning of a new week and new stories are popping onto my radar. After last week’s primaries, it would seem Mitt Romney has all but locked up the GOP nomination for President. Newt Gingrich is set to leave the race on Wednesday and will probably endorse his former opponent at the same time. That would leave Ron Paul as Romney’s final obstacle to the nomination, which should come as no surprise to anyone. I voted for Ron Paul in the Oklahoma primary and wish he would have won the state. Having said that, Paul isn’t finished, not quite yet.
For weeks, there have been rumblings of how Ron Paul supporters have been quietly, or not so much, working → Read More
Okay, everyone around here knows who Lisa Murkowski is and that she is a Senator from Alaska. You are probably also aware that she lost her Republican primary battle with Joe Miller, who has the backing of the Tea Party. It’s old news that she has decided the Republican voters in Alaska either didn’t know what they were doing when they voted for Joe Miller or that they really didn’t mean it , and she is mounting a write-in campaign to get on the ballot in November. It seems she isn’t ready to give up her Senate seat just yet. In the aftermath of the primary victory by Miller and the announcement by Murkowski that she would be a write-in candidate in November, the Republican → Read More
Okay, just so you know, I am fully aware of what will probably happen after some of you read this post. I do not mean this to be a hit piece on Sarah Palin, but I do think it’s time someone on the right took a hard and close look at the person who many of you believe to be the savior of the Republican Party. So disagree with me all you want, but please read the post in full and try to view it without donning rose colored glasses. The reason I am writing today is because of an article in Politics Daily about this very subject. It started me thinking about the former Governor of Alaska, even more so than I normally do, → Read More
Never let it be said that President Obama doesn’t keep things interesting. I was rather surprised this morning to see this story on CNN. He is set to announce plans today to open up large sections of the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the Virginia coastline to offshore drilling.
“To set America on a path to energy independence, the president believes we must leverage our diverse domestic resources by pursuing a comprehensive energy strategy,” said a statement provided by an administration official, who did not want to comment on the record ahead of the president’s announcement.
“The president will announce today additional measures that will boost domestic energy production and promote clean energy innovation,” the statement said.
In his announcement today, President Obama will also → Read More
I was asked a question by my brother last night. He was wondering why I had not posted an article concerning the announcement by Alaska Governor Sarah Palin that she would be resigning her office at the end of the month. My response to him was that there was so much speculation about her motives that I hated to add more fuel to the fire, especially when no one knows what her intentions are right now.
I have seen a wide range of speculation about what the Governor is up to. Those who support Sarah Palin and any possible move she may make towards running for national office seem to think she may be moving in that direction. Republicans who do not support her are → Read More
There has been quite an uproar over some of the comments Letterman made on his show recently about Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin and her family. While I do not necessarily agree Governor Palin would be the best choice for the Republicans to field as a presidential candidate in 2012, I happen to like the Governor and her family.
I do not own a television and even if I did, I would not watch a show such as The Late Show with David Letterman. Therefore, I am sort of coming onto the scene of this a little late, but after watching the video of these so-called jokes by David Letterman about Sarah Palin and her family, I think there is more to be said.

Now that Barack Obama has been elected as our country’s first African American President, we have a little time to reflect on how this massive change in our country has came about. You see, Obama didn’t do this alone. He managed to excite a lot of new and experienced voters at the same time and he had a lot of help along the way, the media and the Republican Party itself included.
