Jim Rubens should actually be relieved: “State Rep. Ladd moves from Rubens to Brown camp”

by Skip June 17, 2014

Why?  When I circulated this around to the other Groksters, Steve immediately replied: “Guy who barely voted with Republicans 6 out of 10 times supports Scott Brown who voted with Democrats 6 out of 10 times.”  Indeed!   NH Rep. Rick Ladd, Grafton 4, had an HRA score of 64.2% – FAR less in line with the […]

I always have answers for WMUR Political Scoop (no matter its inanities)!

by Skip May 23, 2014

Well, it’s Friday and once again WMUR Political Scoop has questions and lots of softballs were served up.  So I have answers…and in a couple of cases, I question the question or perceived observation: If you watched Marilinda Garcia, the national Latino rising star, on CNN en Español to check out her Spanish speaking skills… well […]

Manchester Union Leader At a public hearing on House Bill 1400 Tuesday, Norelli told the House Election Law Committee the state’s first-in-the-nation primary is a source of great pride and has put New Hampshire at the center of many historic events. “The formation of this commission is an important step to position our state to […]

How Much Mileage Can We Get Out Of This? (Updated & Bumped)

by Steve MacDonald May 23, 2013

Update! – The Democrats claim they needed the Monday Caucus so that both sides could give their views on the Casino Bill, and that this was a legitimate purpose for which they could exact a mileage reimbursement on a Monday, but Wednesday morning of the same week, before the session and vote on the Casino Bill,  the […]

Facebook Doodlings…How To Treat Your “Republicans”

by Steve MacDonald May 14, 2013

If you are a Republican in New Hampshire the official party response to Stella Tremblay’s “opinion” (regardless of your opinion about her opinion) is a stark reminder of how you will be treated by them, regardless of your value to the parties so-called political goals (the platform). I mention it only because of a relatively recent […]

NH GOP RINO’s, State Representative Stella Tremblay, and the Destructive Democrats….

by Tim Condon May 10, 2013

High-level NH RINO’s (“Republicans In Name Only”) are at it again: Jennifer Horn, Gene Chandler, Steve Duprey, and Fergus Cullen are all in a tizzy over state Rep. Stella Tremblay’s recent thoughts on whether the Boston bombing might have elements of an “inside job.” In the Union Leader today, Cullen called Rep. Tremblay “delusional.” Well, […]

Well, NH Constitution Article 10 does provide for a Revolution, doesn’t it? Was HB617 the flashpoint? Part 1

by Skip March 10, 2013

[Art.] 10. [Right of Revolution.] Government being instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security, of the whole community, and not for the private interest or emolument of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress […]

Steve? Here’s the Republican names that voted for the HB617 Gas Tax:

by Skip March 6, 2013

Yeah Steve, the figure I’ve seen is up to $1 Billion in new taxes embedded in HB617 over the next few years – and YOU get to help pay for them each and every time you put the gas nozzle into tank for a fill-up (that is, if you can afford the 83% rise in […]

A correction on the Republican vote on HB617 (the gas tax hike)

by Skip February 27, 2013

I was just sent this by a loyal reader (emphasis mine): Skip, you had a fact wrong in your blog about Jennifer and the stupid committee vote. You included the minority leader. Chandler did not vote; he had to be elsewhere. Two days earlier he had signed in opposition to the bill. Your larger point […]

Update: Email Doodlings – “Who for NH House Minority Leader”

by Skip November 11, 2012

As the saga continues – two updates on who will be the face of the NH GOP in the NH House: At a gathering this weekend, the consensus was that the Party would be ill served; given how Obama and Dems have characterized the GOP, methinks he’d be called by the Dems and the Media […]

Email Doodlings – “Who for NH House Minority Leader”

by Skip November 8, 2012

“I have a question for RLCNH legislators. Gene Chandler, or Pam Tucker? What are your thoughts? They seem to be the only two running…” That was the question posed in an email list I’m in.  It was kinda interesting, as I had a phone conversation earlier this afternoon on this very subject and I spoke […]

Elephant Innards

by Steve MacDonald November 23, 2010

Any migration of Republicans away from a vote for “Speaker O’Brien” might say more about Gene Chandler than it does Bill. It might mean that Gene was either insincere in his request for unity–and I am on the record both commending him and taking him at his word for that stance–or it demonstrates his inability to control even those who would have chosen him as their House Speaker.

The Three Amigo’s

by Steve MacDonald November 13, 2010

So three of the four candidates have arranged a lunch (those three seem to do everything together now) at 11:30 the day of the vote for speaker–which happens at 1pm–to do a meet and greet, and have purposefully excluded William O’Brien.

What Was He Thinking?

by Steve MacDonald November 12, 2010

Gene Chandler has been taking a good deal of heat lately.  He deserves it in my opinion.  He knows full well the Democrats will make the same hay over the trumped up corn roast scandal, just like they did back then.  That means if he wins he’s on the defensive every single day instead of […]

Can Gene Chandler Salvage The Liberal Agenda?

by Steve MacDonald November 10, 2010

Provocative title, yes?  Well before you complain about it ask yourself a question.  Why does Dean "Bob" Barker, and the leftistas prefer Chandler over O’Brien?  "That the Dems, if unified, can play a role in preventing him [O'Brien]from being House Speaker, is good news. Dean is part and parcel to the entire Buckley/Sullivan progressive fringe […]

HB 1693 – Time To Roast Some Weenies

by Steve MacDonald March 8, 2010

The best course of policy for a any liberal is to use the law to disadvantage law abiders at the expense of law breakers.  Speech, choice, rights, and even self defense should be filtered, tempered, or simply prohibited to people inclined to follow the rules.  This makes you beholden to the state for everything, including […]
