  • Rasmussen: 59% think Obama is more liberal than themselves (How does this translate in November?)

    Rasmussen has two polls out today, but neither have anything to do with Alabama or Mississippi. In surveys conducted last week and released today, 59% of likely voters nationwide consider Barack Obama more liberal than themselves — and only 37% identify more closely with Obama than with his Republican rivals. Let’s start with ideology: The number of voters who consider President Obama more liberal than they are has risen this month to its highest level since last October.The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters now think, in political terms, that the president is...

After you are finished...send CNN a note at this link: To demand that Soledad be removed from the air or that a disclaimer be shown that she is a member of the Democratic Party every single time her face appears on the screen.

  • Rush Brings Out Stunning Hypocrisy of the Left

    Because it is so predictable, by now we should not be stunned by the stunning hypocrisy of the Left, but it is still tough not to be. One way to get your mind around it is to remember that the whole ideology and political existence of members of the communist Left are based on lies. They not only live on lies, lies are essential for their political survival. Let me explain why I call these people the communist Left or communist Democrats (and this also includes some who are fake Republicans). The very foundation of the Lefts platform is an...

    New York Slimes ^ | 03/05/2012 | NEIL GROSS
    THE Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum recently called President Obama a snob for supporting higher education for all Americans. There are good, decent men and women, he said, who go out and work hard every day and put their skills to test that arent taught by some liberal college professor trying to indoctrinate them. He also called colleges and universities indoctrination mills for godless liberalism. But is this true? Does attending college actually make you more liberal and less religious? Research indicates that the answer is: not so much. Its certainly true that professors are a liberal lot and that...

    Rick Santorum was defending himself when he responded to George Stephonopoulus on ABC’s This Week: “To say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes (me) throw up.”Stephonopoulus had given Santorum an opportunity to renounce an old statement about Kennedy; instead Santorum doubled down. It was the culmination of a week of media scrutiny of religious statements made throughout his political career.On election night, tongue-wagging pundits suggested that Santorum’s attack on Kennedy caused him to lose the Catholic vote to Mitt Romney in Michigan.“Rick Santorum has to be wondering where he would be...

    Stupid Videos ^ | March 4, 2012 | Pinkbell
    An angry, liberal comedian goes before the Seattle City Council, and he is angry because he was arrested for cursing out a woman in public. He mentions that he was part of the protests but wasn't arrested for that. I take that to mean he's an Occupy Wall Street member. He goes on a long rant insulting the officer who arrested him. He believes the officer is conservative so he rants about conservatives, corporatism, and insults Ann Rand, Rush Limbaugh, and Ronald Reagan. The audience, who I'm certain is filled with fellow Occupiers, applauds as he storms out.

    "Liberals love to think of themselves as intellectual and nuanced, but liberalism is incredibly simplistic. It's nothing more than ‘childlike emotionalism applied to adult issues.’ Very seldom does any issue that doesn't involve pandering to their supporters boil down at its core level to more than feeling ‘nice’ or ‘mean’ to liberals. This makes liberals ill equipped to deal with complex issues." -- John Hawkins, September 21, 2007   Liberals are actually worse than children, not just because it's so appalling to see adults who view themselves as highly intelligent and sophisticated thinking like little kids, but because in...

    The New Republic ^ | February 23, 2012 | 1:40 pm | Alec MacGillis
    Heres one of the overriding ironies of the strange, strange 2012 Republican nominating season: as damaging as the primaries have been to Mitt Romneys standing in the public eye, he hasnt actually taken that many hits for his exceedingly moderate record in Massachusetts. Rick Santorum has been the only candidate to make a half-decent attempt to go after Romneycare. Other candidates have halfheartedly nicked Romney for raising revenues in the state by closing some business tax loopholes. But there has been so, so much that has gone untouched. Romneys rivals have barely mentioned his claim, on the eve of the...

    Oklahoma's Tom Coburn is the most conservative member of the Senate, while New Yorker Kirsten Gillibrand and Oregon's Jeff Merkley share the title of top liberals, according to National Journal's 2011 Congressional Vote Ratings. Coburn jumped eight spots to snag the most conservative label this year, and it's Gillibrand's second consecutive appearance in the list of top ten most liberal members. For the past three decades, National Journal has rated members of Congress based on selected roll-call votes from the previous year to create an ideological scale for Congress. This year, National Journal examined all 949 roll call votes in...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 02/27/2012 | Fred Barnes
    President Obamas budget for 2013 is pure Obama. How do we know? Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman, was once asked how to become a budget expert. You have to read the budget, he said. To know Obama, its similar. You have to read the speeches and look over the budgets. For the past year, theyve told the same story. No, the real Obama is not a pragmatist or a frustrated moderate or a well-intentioned but weak politician forced by political circumstances to take positions hed rather not. Only sympathizers, notably media types, believe any of those notions. The...

    Still a myth. (Politico) Well-known public radio host Garrison Keillor is hosting a fundraiser for President Obama in his home state of Minnesota. Obama campaign manager Jim Messina will be in the North Star state this week for several events, including a fundraiser at the home of Keillor, Minnesota Public Radio reports. Keillor is best known for the radio variety program A Prairie Home Companion, a show that features dispatches from the fictional Minnesota town Lake Wobegon. His show is produced by Minnesota Public Radio and airs on public radio stations across the country.

    National Review ^ | 02/20/2012 | George Weigel
    It was not surprising that ill-educated Catholics in Congress rushed to embrace President Obamas accommodation on the HHS mandate on sterilization and contraception (including possible abortifacients), or that the faux accommodation was defended, if risibly, by another embodiment of Catholic Lite, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. One does not look to Senator Patty Murray, or to Representative Rose DeLauro or Nancy Pelosi, or to Secretary Sebelius, to learn anything about Catholic doctrine or the history of the Churchs teaching on moral issues. Nemo dat quod non habet, as the scholastic philosophers used to say: No one gives what (s)he does not...

    There are two kinds of Arabs in this world. Those who hate Jews, and those who dont. And in my life, I have met more of the former than the latter. I am not proud to say that. Arabs will not like me for admitting it. But it is true. And it is something I wish the Obama administration understood. It is something Americans should know as the Arab Spring enters its second year. (snip) The fact is, Arabs dont all look alike or think alike. But we are often pushed into a kind of groupthink, a kind of self-censorship...

    Taking Aim at Santorum: The Romney Campaign Misfires. FEB 20, 2012, VOL. 17, NO. 22 BY JONATHAN V. LAST On Saturday, February 4, a national poll from Rasmussen Reports showed Rick Santorum as the only Republican to lead President Obama in a head-to-head matchup. The next morning, a PPP poll showed Santorum suddenly leading Mitt Romney in Minnesota. So the Romney campaign responded with what are becoming its trademark tactics. Having completely ignored Santorum since New Hampshire, on Sunday afternoon the Romney team sent out a press release calling him a proud defender of earmarks and pork-barrel spending. The...

    And we're the ones, the old-fashioned conservatives, we want to deny people a good time, we want to deny people fun, we want to deny people all these things in life. So we have yet another example of life in America under the thumb of an ever-expanding state with central planning, otherwise known as "well-intentioned liberalism." From violating religious rights where there is no power permitted to do so, to mandating the purchase of products, to now mandating insurance companies sell certain products at a price that's also mandated, from czars, to denying the right to travel, it's all here....

    Dear friend, We are just two days away from the 2012 Democratic Party of Virginia's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner and I could not be more excited. We throw a pretty good party in Montana so I can't wait to see how Democrats get together in the Commonwealth. I am honored to have the opportunity to give the keynote speech and I'm looking forward to exchanging ideas with people from across the state about how Democrats can win in 2012 and continue moving this country forward together. This year's JJ Dinner is going to be one for the ages and I don't want...

    American Thinker ^ | 2-6-2012 | Bruce Walker
    Over the last decade, conservatives have enjoyed Fox News, a national news network which has given conservatives a fair shake and which has been willing to expose the bigotry of the establishment media towards conservatism. Yet there is the chance that Fox News, when owner Rupert Murdoch dies, may drift towards the lockstep leftism so characteristic of other news networks. Fortunately, for a couple of reasons, we need not fret too much if this does happen.

I believe the establishment figures 'hey where ya gonna go'? Well the have a point to a degree, and I am about on the verge of saying "screw the Republican Party" lets vote 3rd party (conservative). Of course our system of being in nature a representative republic, as well as not a parliamentary system, and the monopoly of...
