“Winning is only the precusor; what you do afterwards is more important”; which is more important, Jeb Bush?

by Skip February 15, 2015

I’ve been busy all day (you know, that “balance” thing) so blogging has been light.  Pretty much most Sundays, I do watch the talking head shows.  On today’s This Week, “Republican strategist” Anna Navarro who never seems to lose an opportunity to “sniff” at conservatives did exactly that.  Donna Brazille talked about the conservatives she knew […]

2016 Presidential Primary: speaking of guns, Rick Perry just shot himself in the foot.

by Skip February 8, 2015

In the Texas Tribune, former Texas Governor Rick Perry took a shot at his fellow Texan, US Senator Ted Cruz, who may be vying with him in the 2016 Presidential Primary: “It’s one of the selling points, if you will, to the American people as they decide who’s going to follow Barack Obama,” he said.

Wherein NH Democrat Party Chair Ray Buckley makes a fool of himself on national TV

by Skip February 5, 2015

“On Tuesday’s airing of MSNBC’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews tried several times to get New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Raymond Buckley to commit to holding presidential primary debates in his state. Matthews asked many times, trying to get the chairman to guarantee that there will be debates and not just a coronation of Hillary Clinton.” […]

Speaking of Flip Flops, here’ssss Jeb Bush!

by Skip January 27, 2015

First and foremost we need to control our border.  A great nation needs to control its border.  Not just at the border, which is hugely important, but also the 40 percent of the people that have come here illegally came with a legal visa and overstayed their bounds.  We ought to be able to figure […]

First David Corn and now…..Nancy Pelosi????

by Skip January 27, 2015

When David Corn, a far Left Progressive writing at  Mother Jones, said that Mitt Romney was (in so many words) a closet Progressive, it left me rather unenthused. After all, a Progressive wanting Mitt – this is what I as a “base” Conservatarian, wants to hear about a guy that I resignedly voted for in the […]

However, I bet that Presidents Dole, McCain, and Romney disagree with Senator Ted Cruz

by Skip January 13, 2015

I just don’t understand why, though… Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, reiterated Tuesday that he believes the GOP has a track record of failure when the party nominates a presidential candidate from the “mushy middle.” “There are a lot of folks in Washington who argue that the way Republicans should win is that they should […]

Jeb Bush, may I introduce you to two NH candidates…

by Skip December 16, 2014

No, seriously, with each passing day this sounds more like Huntsman II. But with lots, lots, lotsmore money involved. But before pursuing the presidency, Mr. Bush is grappling with the central question of whether he can prevail in a grueling primary battle without shifting his positions or altering his persona to satisfy his party’s hard-liners. In conversations […]

More Bushisms – this time, from Jeb Bush

by Skip December 4, 2014

Yes, with the 2014 elections now over here in NH, the Presidential Primary now starts to rear its multiple heads (like Hydra, uglier but carrying around more money).  One of the wannabees is the next in line in the Bush Dynasty, Jeb Bush, who had this to say: “I kinda know how a Republican can […]

GrokTV: Rockingham Repub Dinner – Intro Ceremonies

by Skip May 11, 2014

As I said here, the Rockingham County Republicans held their annual Washington / Lincoln / Reagan Dinner at the gorgeously restored Wentworth By the Sea (a project that Bill Binnie undertook when everyone said couldn’t be done given the absolute state of disrepair it had become).  The big draw for the night was US Senator […]

Mike Pence Looking Strong For 2016

by Mike April 27, 2014

I’ve written about Mike Pence before: About how I’ve admired his humility and his principled voting record, about his gravitas and speaking ability, and how he carries himself with the dignity becoming of a Presidential contender. In my prior article, I mentioned his stellar record with the Center for Individual Freedom (CFIF), and, it turns […]

Even THESE Lefty talking heads don’t know what Hillary’s done

by Skip April 14, 2014

Sorry, but putting up with Bill’s philandering doesn’t make one a Presidential quality candidate.  Either does being an activist First Lady.  Haven’t heard of her singular accomplishments as a US Senator after she just “dropped into” New York either (although I have heard she was a hard worker – but I couldn’t tell you what […]

2016 Presidential Poll – TEA Party style

by Skip February 11, 2014

Ok, ok, it’s early and this poll may mean absolutely zero for results.  But in a way, it is interesting to see WHO gets put into the mix: The poll provided 11 different matchups. From there, the support for each were totaled. Texan Cruz was at the top with 84 percent supporting his candidacy, followed […]

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s Gun Double-Bind

by Rick Olson January 1, 2014

“Principles have no real force except when one is well-fed.”  —Mark Twain   New Jersey has some of the toughest gun laws in America. Citizens in New Jersey are virtually unarmed. Issuance of licenses or permits to carry a pistol concealed are the exception, not the rule. In order to do so, one must have a […]

“Do you know who I am?” vs “The Big Guy sent me”

by Skip November 8, 2013

Interesting question at Pindell’s Political Scoop – but he missed the even more important question.  He did ask:   How is the first meeting between Matt Mowers and David Chesley going to go?   Chesley is Chesley only because he’s been riding on Horn’s skirt train (well, coattails would have been chauvinist, right (Lord Political […]

Let me see if I have this right – if we don’t fall in line with Rubio’s comprehensive amnesty bill, we get Obama’s

Executive order?  Oh, so you want us to help you rearrange your deck chairs on your own personal amnesty Titanic? “I believe that this president will be tempted, if nothing happens in Congress, he will be tempted to issue an executive order like he did for the DREAM Act kids a year ago, where he […]

Notable Quote – George Will

by Skip August 4, 2013

On the on-going fight between Chris Christie and Rand Paul as a proxy for the widening rift between the Establishment Republicans and the more independent grassroots on Libertarianism in the Republican Party: “Let’s be clear what libertarianism is and what it isn’t: it is not anarchism, it has a role for government,” he said. “What […]

Competency counts

by Skip May 4, 2013

Exhibit A.  Barack Obama.  My, he looks so uncomfortable “skeet” shooting (one of those photo-ops trying to show him trying to “be one of the guys”). Then there is a guy who actually knows how to shoot a long gun; of course, it’s the guy from Texas: It was unfortunate how his run for President […]

Well, NH has a law for the First-In-The-Nation Primary so why SHOULDN’T South Carolina make it law for the First-In-The-South-Primary?

by Skip March 27, 2012

And the jumping escapades just got a tad more pro-active.  Everyone knows (even if they won’t admit it) that NH Republicans have no choice as to when the NH Primary is held – by LAW, it must be the first in the nation.  Methinks that South Carolinians have done this just to slam down the […]
