Glenn Beck explains leaving GOP

Last night on Fox News, our old pal Glenn Beck explained what he meant when he announced last week that he was done with the Republican Party to his buddy, Lord Haw-Haw, a.k.a. Bill O′Reilly. I have to say that I was puzzled by this ′announcement′ when I first read about last week. Many of the articles, even Haw-Haw himself begun the interview last, approached the subject as if Beck were leaving the GOP. Like Glenn was a car-carrying member of the RNC or something. This puzzled me since I can clearly recall from years ago, back when Beck had a show on FNC, that he had said, many times, that he was not a Republican. If anything, he′s been leaning more Libertarian for the past few years.

Ted Cruz First To Run for White House in 2016

It′s official! Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz is the first to announce his run for the White House in 2016! Today, Cruz will appear before a packed auditorium at Liberty University in Virginia to declare his candidacy for president. But shortly after midnight, Cruz tweeted his intentions on Twitter. Of course, everybody knew he was going to do so. However, any doubts that he was merely going to announce the formation of an exploratory committee, as other potential GOP candidates have already done so, are now put to rest. Nearly every poll so far shows Cruz near the bottom of the barrel as a primary contender. With less than 5 months to go before the first GOP presidential debate, can Cruz raise enough money and voter support to make a difference?

Phil Robertson at CPAC, Rand Paul Wins Straw Poll

CPAC 2015 ended Saturday with a whimper, not a bang. Rand Paul won the CPAC straw poll for a third time in a row with about 25.7% of the vote. Scott Walker, who probably gave one of the better speeches at the conference, came in second with 21.4%. Ted Cruz and Dr. Ben Carson followed them with 11.5% and 11.4% respectively, and poor Jeb Bush took 5th place with just 8.3%. The rest of the deluge of GOP hopefuls lagged well behind with none above 5%. But it may be the A&E, ′Duck Dynasty′ star, Phil Robertson, who wowed the crowd at CPAC with his remarks about how he blames hippies for STDs and gave John Boehner a verbal ′hot foot′. He also referred to the Barack Obama White House as being full of ′non-Christians′. Needless to say, the Liberal Media is all aghast by this.

Mitt Romney Cancels 2016 Run for White House

A case of ′Mitt-agating′ circumstances? Barely three weeks after floating a trial balloon, Mitt Romney has decided not to run for president in 2016. This would have been his third try to win the White House after losing the GOP primary to John McCain in 2008 and the general election to Barack Obama in 2012. During a conference call to supporters, Romney said it was time to give ″the next generation of Republican leaders″ a chance to serve and defeat a possible run by Hillary Clinton. Friday evening, Romney had dinner with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, whom apparently did not fall out of his chair for a change. I can already see Saturday Night Live having fun with that! Jeb Bush is obviously the big winner with Romney′s decision. But is it enough? Why the sudden reversal?

Joni Ernst Rocks GOP SOTU Response

The newly elected Republican senator from Iowa, Joni Ernst, gave the rebuttal to the State of the Union Address 2015 by Barack Obama. As a fresh face representing the GOP, Joni Ernst scored a 10 out of 10 in delivering the Republican response to the SOTU speech. Unlike those in the past, such as Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal, whom only provide fodder for late night comedians. Not sure what they′ll try to poke fun at Ernst over? Perhaps her personal story about wearing old, plastic bread bags over her one pair of good shoes while a school girl? Ernst assured the American people that the new Republican Congress, controlling both the House and Senate, will act for their benefit. The first order of business is to send to the White House a bill approving the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline which will bring energy and jobs from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

Mitt Romney 2016 Run for White House, Third Time Charm?

Move over Jeb Bush and Chris Christie. A Mitt Romney 2016 run for the White House may be in the cards. The buzz of Mitt seeking to go again and face Hillary Clinton, or whom ever the Democrats nominate, seems more likely in the past week. The Washington Post and other news media outlets are all chatting up a third Romney presidential campaign. In the past two years, several polls do indicate that if a do-over of the 2012 election had been held, Romney might have beaten Barack Obama. But is that enough to inspire the GOP to embrace Mitt?

Back To Work – 114th Congress Starts Today

Its back to work today on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC as the 114th Congress begins its first session. Already, the Liberal Media is in panic mode, warning of how Republicans are ″scary″ and trying to tell GOP Conservatives how to behave and vote. The Media moans and groans about how Barack Obama must now contend with the upstart Republicans whom have been handed the reigns of power in the House and Senate by the American people. As if all of those whom had voted last November were enemy invaders. But, alas, the real question is how will John Boehner and Mitch McConnell satisfy the voters and stop Obama in his tracks from further harming the nation?

Profile in Arrogance – Obama: ‘I Hear You’

Wednesday afternoon, following the massive defeat of Democrats by voters, Barack Obama appeared for a one-hour press conference to talk about the next two years of his presidency. In a display of absolute arrogance, bordering, if not surpassing megalomania, Obama said: ′I hear you′. He first acknowledged that he heard from the one-third of eligible voters who took the time to do their civic duty. But then he focused more on the two-thirds who didn′t bother to vote. Apparently, Obama is a psychic, since he knows what they are thinking as well. Perhaps he believes that two-thirds of the country support his policies and agenda because the NSA is tapping their phones and computers? But I suspect that it is just the sheer narcissism that Obama embodies, causing him to think that he is still relevant. Worse yet, due to this arrogance, Obama is now threatening to use the veto and executive orders to usurp the Congress and the Constitution.
