Ted Cruz Files At The State House

by Mike November 12, 2015

There was a heckuva turnout for Ted Cruz’ filing at the State House this week, and a couple of history lessons, too – I like the way Secretary Gardner did not just deliver his usual short history of the First In The Nation primary, but also referenced an earlier visit by Rafael Cruz, talked about […]

Shaheen Ties Her Wagon to Clinton Death Spiral

by Steve MacDonald August 31, 2015
Thumbnail image for Shaheen Ties Her Wagon to Clinton Death Spiral

The Clintons and Shaheens, to borrow a phrase, have always been thick as thieves in the night–so this comes as no surprise, ‘Hillary Clinton coming to Portsmouth to accept Shaheen  endorsement.’ This so called news report fawns over Clinton and Shaheen. Its embarrassing. So it would never ask the question: “If Shaheen were up for reelection […]

Dear Representatives: “There Is No Alternative!”

by Mike December 3, 2014

The Left will always tell you who they fear, and make no mistake, they FEAR Bill O’Brien: They campaigned against him – and lost seats; they fundraised off him – but the GOP did better; they wailed about his potential return – and the GOP caucus voted for Bill anyway! It is that fear, on […]

by Skip December 1, 2014

Kelly Ayotte was on CloseUp yesterday speaking about a number of things and as I noted here. One of those items was her seemingly defending signing the letter (along with last century’s NH GOP luminaries) endorsing Gene Chandler for NH Speaker over Bill O’Brien.  Here’s the video: (H/T: Mike and his Tivo)

“In my mind, my vote is an endorsement”

by Skip November 1, 2014

In my mind, my vote is an endorsement. Puts the act of voting in a whole new light, doesn’t it?  Think about that – we give endorsements here at the ‘Grok because we think those candidates believe as we do.  We want them to win by lending our voices to theirs.  We hope that the folks […]

Local NH Democrat Lucy Edwards is a contributor to People’s World, which is the latest incarnation of The Daily Worker–the American Communist Party paper of record.  They are not shy about the association, and proudly claim 99% (how cute) of their parentage from the Communist party newspaper. Lucy, who is active with the NH Democrat […]

Club For Growth Endorses Marilinda Garcia For CD2

by Mike June 27, 2014

This, as Joe the Gaffe-r would say, is a Big Freaking Deal. From personal experience, I know that Club For Growth does not endorse lightly, and does due diligence on the candidate’s philosophy and voting record. Do not be fooled by the pleasant young lady – she is from the party of “Hell, NO”, when […]

In The Tank With The DC Establishment,
Ayotte Sinks As She Endorses Brown

by Mike May 26, 2014

I get party loyalty, I especially get the Senate code (which is suspiciously like Omerta), whereby one sitting Senator will never attack another of the same party (unless it is the Establishment attacking its TEA party members). What I don’t get is blind loyalty to a FAILED Senator, one who could not even beat LieAwatha […]

Thumbnail image for Paul Mirski Endorses Marilinda Garcia For Congress

  I support Marilinda Garcia for NH’s Second Congressional District seat 110%. She’s a social conservative – but, I would judge, pragmatic on libertarian issues – leans libertarian but only leans. She’s honest, very bright, articulate, attractive in demeanor, very accomplished, a very good speaker, a hard and absolutely reliable worker. She has lot’s of […]

GraniteGrok endorsement – Andrew Hemingway for NH GOP Chair

by Skip January 8, 2013

A few years ago, I got a call out of the blue one evening from a person that I did not know, was very polite (especially to this ordinary schlub blogger), seemed to know me fairly well, and wanted to talk about my thoughts about politics in general. And wanted to know if he were […]

Whose War On Women?

by Tom July 27, 2012

Yesterday, Steve wrote about William Jefferson Clinton coming to Nashua to endorse Maggie Hassan.  In it, he showed Andrew Hemingway’s 4RG video of the endorsement, where Clinton messed up and used Jackie Cilley’s last name (the other candidate!).  There is simply no good explanation or excuse for this. Democrats around the state are now trumpeting the magnificence of […]

Endorsement: Andy Sanborn for New Hampshire State Senate District 9

by Steve MacDonald July 19, 2012

There are fundamental problems with the way the New Hampshire government conducts its business, from the glut of agencies, the redundancy, inefficiency that has grown over the years, and the inability to coordinate information that was built into the system, not out of forethought or malice, but simply because that is how disparate empires grow […]
