Most U.S. voters believe the Democratic congressional agenda is extreme, while a plurality describe the Republican agenda as mainstream. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters think the agenda of Democrats in Congress is extreme.

(Columbia, SC – July 14, 2010) Liberal Democrat Rob Miller’s campaign released a inaccurate and unsourced attack on Representative Joe Wilson this afternoon, trying to link him to lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Joe Wilson has never met Jack Abramoff or taken money from him according to the Federal Election Commission (Source FEC), Wilson sure has met General David Petraeus, who currently commands U.S. Forces in Afghanistan. Just this morning, South Carolina […]
This is one for the “Stating The Obvious” file. White House Press Secretary, Robert Gibbs, appeared on NBC’s “Meet The Press” and acknowledged publicly that Democrats may lose control of the House of Representatives this November. “I think there’s no doubt that enough seats are in play…”, said Gibbs. The statement had several purposes. One was to rally support from the base to become engaged, which has yet to happen […]
Nearly thirty-two African-Americans are running this election season as Republicans. If you only watched the mainstream media, you would think there were only three: South Carolinas’ Tim Scott, Allen West of Florida, and Republican strategist Angela McGlowan of Mississippi. But there are 28 others who are running under the banner of Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the most since reconstruction. Many are running in the deep south and maybe I shouldn’t use this word, but the south appears to be more “progressive” than its northern neighbors.
Many of the candidates have been endorsed by their local teaparties and the always controversial former Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. Maybe that is the reason the media isn’t reporting on these candidates, their endorsements from the tea party movement doesn’t jive with their premise that the movement is racist because of their disagreement with President Obama’s policies. Maybe the real truth is the tea parties descent is about ideology and not the color of Obama’s skin.
The New York Times took a look at the many candidates of African descent who are running under the Republican banner. We have added the names of the candidates and a link to each so one can learn more about each of the candidate running this election season.
PRINCETON, NJ — Americans who believe most members of Congress do not deserve to be re-elected support their position by saying representatives are simply doing a bad job, that they have been in office too long, that they are not making decisions based on what’s best for the country, or that they are too focused on self-interest, special interests, and partisanship. Relatively few cite Congress’ performance on specific issues. More […]

Whats more is that while those who identify themselves as Republican, Democrat or Independent are nearly the same, Independents are more likely to vote Republican in the upcoming election.

Here is a political move, Blame Bush. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is back to the Blame Bush tactics just months from the Congressional Primaries. Now Pelosi says President Bush barred officials from briefing Congress on the impending financial crisis. Why haven’t we heard this before? You really mean Pelosi had no idea that she was spending too much money and that sub-prime mortgages were a problem? Can we […]
