  • FR, the pro-God "purist" site that RINOs love to hate

    Well, folks, it happens every four years or so. The presidential election cycle really brings out the RINOS. I have to state and restate FR's positions more and more frequently, because the true blue RINO types simply cannot stand that a conservative site will not support a gun grabbing, abortionist, homosexualist, big government statist. Last cycle it was Rudy McRomney. Boy, did we ever catch hell for not supporting the big RINOs of the day. Hundreds of true blue RINO supporters fled grassroots conservative FR in disgust when they couldn't get their way and called us every name in the...
  • The rhyme and reason of Sarah Palin's endorsements

    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | June 4, 2010 | Chris Cillizza
    After a stretch in which an endorsement from Sarah Palin was considered a rarity, the former Alaska governor has become something of an endorsement machine as of late. In the past week alone, she has endorsed four candidates, ranging from a tea party contender for Senate in her home state of Alaska to the GOP establishment favorite for Iowa governor. Palin has backed both clear winners and decided long-shots; she's weighed in on behalf of "mama grizzlies," but an extra X chromosome doesn't necessarily mean an automatic endorsement (see Hutchison, Kay Bailey). Some candidates (such as former Redskins tight end...

    The RNC ^ | December 4, 2009 | Michael Steele
    The head weasel at the RNC tells that I have a choice to make. To whit: 'Will Barack Obama continue to have Nancy Pelosi/Harry Reid majorities in Concress to ram through his radical leftist agenda of curtailed freedoms and government expansion, or... ...will our Party's commonsense conservative candidates prevail next November and roll back the left-wing gains that are threatening our prosperity and liberty?' Well, you have to admire their sheer nerve and effrontery in making this sort of play for my wallet. The letter mentions New Jersey and Virginia as signal victories, but they somehow forgot to mention their...

    Wondering how all the anti-Republican "I'm not gonna vote for McCain" folks think about about what they got? What do these same . . . true believers . . . believe is in store for us during the mid-term elections?

    ... If there's a single thread that runs through the e-mails I receive from peevish Republicans, it's that none of the current candidates possesses the conservative purity of Ronald Reagan. One could almost get the idea that Dutch was betrayed by Pontius Pilate and crucified on Calvary. But that wasn't exactly the case. The fact of the matter is that Gov. Reagan gave Gov. Jerry Brown a run for his money – or should I say our money? – when it came to raising taxes here in California. But, in spite of the additional revenue, he was responsible in large...

    Red State ^ | March 04, 2008 | by Alexham
    Barring a political miracle, Senator John McCain will win the GOP primaries in Texas and Ohio today, and most likely garner enough delegates to lock up our party's presidential nomination. I know many of you aren't thrilled about supporting McCain, and some of y'all have even made blood oaths that you will never vote for "that man." And trust me. I get it. I know exactly where y'all are coming from. For some, it was McCain's opposition to President Bush's tax cuts. For others, it was McCain's cheerleading for patently unconstitutional campaign-finance legislation. For social conservatives, it was McCain's support...
  • Bush: happy for Cheney's gay daughter pregnancy

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Dick Cheney's pregnant lesbian daughter Mary will make a "fine mom," President George W. Bush said, sidestepping his past comment that a child ideally would be raised by a mother and father. Mary Cheney, 37, and her longtime partner, Heather Poe, are expecting their first child, which would be the sixth grandchild for the vice president. Cheney was hired last year as an executive for America Online. "I think Mary is going to be a loving soul to her child. And I'm happy for her," Bush said in an interview with People magazine.

    <p>From reading Steven Greenhut's last column ["RINOplasty," Commentary, Feb. 22], I could only surmise that he enjoys the minority status that Republicans are currently confronted with in both houses of the state Legislature. He must also like knowing that San Francisco liberals can put just about any silly piece of legislation on the governor's desk, where, up until a few months ago, there was a Democrat there to sign it.</p>

    February 8, 2004 TEN REASONS FOR REPUBLICANS TO SIT OUT THE 2004 ELECTION: Conservatives are in a lather over various domestic policies of the Bush administration, and many are threatening to sit out the 2004 election and not vote at all. And who can blame them? After all, it’s been a decade since New Gingrich and his merry band of reformers won control of the House from the democrats who dominated that body for the previous 40 years. In the decade that republicans have controlled the House (and most of that time, the Senate also), our federal government has grown...
  • Note to Arnie-bots: If Arnold is a "Fiscal Conservative", so is Howard Dean

    The self-delusion of some star-struck conservatives here is stunning. In the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, they insisted Arnold was a fiscal conservative, just because he said so. This arrogant proclamation, with no evidence to back it up, was enough for these Arnold-bots. Then today, he dropped a bomb-shell and declared tax-loving, Hillary Clinton supporter Warren Buffett as his economic advisor. When faced with such repudiation of their fantasy, one expects most people to concede their mistake. But not the Arnie-bots. They still insist Arnold is a conservative, just because he has chosen a billionaire to head his...
