The GOP to pass Patriot Act extension tonight

February 14, 2011 politisite 3

By Albert N. Milliron Republicans will tell you that the 2010 election was a referendum on Nancy Pelosi and the  Democrats pushing unpopular bills through the House like a Freight train.  The GOP complained that the Democrats passed bills with late night votes that has  little debate and no provision for Amendments. This same party, who said they would restore the process to the people, are now going to push […]

Democrats Launch Ad Blitz to "Target" 19 Republicans

January 31, 2011 politisite 0

Thats right, the DNC said “Target”.  Here is a fine example of  Democrats, elitist as they are, expect a different set of standards for Republicans than for  themselves.  Their rationale?  Democrats don’t kill people because of a campaign ad or an article and certainly  don’t equate the word “Target” with guns.  Only a right wing nut job would do that.  Like  Jared Loughner  as we all know, no matter what […]

More Democrats voted for Bush Tax Cuts than Republicans: Passes House 277 to 148, Goes to Obama for Signature

December 17, 2010 politisite 0

After weeks of political posturing, more Democrats ended up voting to extend the Bush Tax Cuts than did Republicans. The provision extends the current tax rates for two years. The Measure also included an extension of unemployment benefits as unemployment remains at a high 9.8 percent. Democrats already have their talking points loaded and ready to go, “Republicans held us hostage and used blackmail”. Democrats rhetoric sounds more each day like the terrorists they are fighting are not members of al-qaeda but rather those in the Republican Party.

Ten days to Mid-Term Elections, where does your State Senate race Stand?

October 23, 2010 politisite 0

It’s always been unlikely that Republicans will pick up the 10 seats needed to take control of the Senate, but a gain of seven or eight seats would be enough for the GOP to effectively block any Democratic proposal and perhaps even move some pieces of legislation. In fact, getting to 48 or 49 members might put Republicans in position to woo enough party switchers to make a majority, depending […]

GOP out to biggest generic ballot leads in history

August 16, 2010 politisite 0

The most amazing thing about this? When Democrats tell people that voters hate the GOP as much as they hate them, they’re not blowing smoke. That’s basically true. In fact, in many polls, the Republican Party’s favorables are still lower than the Democrats’. And even so: Biggest generic ballot lead … in history. That’s how popular Hopenchange is. The flip side of that calculus, of course: Imagine what the lead […]

Is It Enough for the GOP To Just Say No?

July 21, 2010 politisite 0

Over the past year, the Democrats fixed on what they thought was a devastating four-word slogan to defeat Republicans in 2010: “The Party of No.” Unlike many campaign slogans, it was fair enough. After all, the Republicans had opposed almost unanimously all of President Obama’s major bills (socialized health care, stimulus, nationalization of GM and Chrysler, “cap and trade,” financial overregulation, multitrillion-dollar yearly deficits, tax increases, etc.) But the Democrats […]

RNC proposes key changes to 2012 presidential primaries

July 3, 2010 politisite 0

Call it the end of the era of early-win pre-emption.  After the 2008 Republican primaries produced an early and insurmountable lead for John McCain and effectively cinched the nomination before the arrival of February, the GOP has been looking for a way to reduce the impact of early primaries and keep states overloading the early schedule to compete with it.  Reid Wilson reports at Hotline that the RNC has quietly […]

From NOLA: House members who had planned to travel to Louisiana next week for a tour and meetings on the Gulf of Mexico oil spill being organized by Rep. Steve Scalise won’t be able to tap their member accounts to cover the costs, the Republican congressman said he was told Tuesday. The travel would appear to be to in the category of “general oversight” into an issue in which several […]
