Election Day: “Forth, and fear no darkness!”

Posted by: Phineas on November 6, 2012 at 11:00 am » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas Today is it, folks. The day of decision. After four years of being governed by the most left-wing administration in US History, as well as the most feckless since James Buchanan; after four years of suffering under incompetent boobs (save for their outstanding competence at corruption and cronyism) who treat the Constitution […]


#Decision2012: Random Election Night Eve Thoughts

Posted by: ST on November 5, 2012 at 7:41 pm » 10 Comments

Can’t believe tomorrow is the day. If you’re like me, you didn’t early vote and will line up at the polls first thing in the morning. Here in NC, the polls open at 6:30 and I plan on being at mine at 6, to get it out of the way … and to hopefully avoid […]


Romney in West Chester, OH: Vote for love of country, not “revenge”

Posted by: ST on November 3, 2012 at 11:52 am » 11 Comments

I watched this rally on C-SPAN last night and it was pretty danged epic, with a GOP all-star supporting cast and tons of people. Romney’s biggest crowd to date. The article says 30,000, other reports say between 15,000 and 18,000 per local law enforcement and the Secret Service. However, I read multiple sources say the […]


QOTD: VP Biden “never been proud” to be Obama’s veep? (VIDEO)

LOLOL (via my co-blogger). Biden to a crowd of supporters in Beloit, WI: “There’s never been a day in the last four years I’ve been proud to be his vice president, not one single day.” Video: The Hill provides a short write-up of Biden’s remarks, including a timely reminder of Paul Ryan’s jab at Biden […]


Las Vegas Review-Journal: Obama a “narcissistic amateur” and “unworthy”

Posted by: Phineas on November 1, 2012 at 8:39 pm » 8 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Wow. The Review-Journal is Nevada’s biggest paper and, while they endorsed McCain in 2008, I never expected they would go after Obama in such harsh terms. After ripping him (justifiably) for his handling of the Benghazi fiasco, this is how they conclude: This administration is an embarrassment on foreign policy and incompetent […]

Battleground NC: Michelle Obama to visit NC on Monday

Posted by: ST on November 1, 2012 at 12:09 pm » 4 Comments

If I recall correctly, the President himself hasn’t been here since August, but surrogates have visited on his behalf – like the VP and Mrs. Biden, among others. Via the Charlotte Observer: Details of her visit have not been announced. It will be the first lady’s fifth visit to North Carolina since August. Her visit […]


The mindless, predictable politicization of Hurricane #Sandy

Posted by: ST on October 31, 2012 at 11:58 am » 7 Comments

Well said, Wall Street Journal: We know liberals are worried that President Obama might lose next week, but are they so panicky that they want to suggest even before the storm has passed that Mitt Romney and Republicans are against disaster relief? Apparently so. It’s an especially low-rent tactic, akin to blaming the tea party […]


Could next week’s election be postponed due to #Sandy?

Posted by: ST on October 30, 2012 at 7:58 pm » 3 Comments

That’s a question I’ve heard and read quite a bit in the aftermath of the widespread, massive devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. The answer is: Technically with Congressional approval it could happen, but it’s not likely: WASHINGTON (AP) — Could superstorm Sandy postpone the presidential election? The question has come up now because it could take […]


Hurricane #Sandy and a tale of two campaigns

Posted by: Phineas on October 30, 2012 at 1:01 pm » 2 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Call it a study in character, where actions speak louder than words: As Sandy slammed into the East Coast, the Romney campaign in Virginia asked supporters to bring relief supplies to its campaign offices, which it would then distribute on one of its own buses: Having canceled campaign events in the area, […]
