Dear Republicans…no one elected you to work with Democrats. If voters really wanted people who would work closely with Obama and other Democrats to “get things done,” they would have just voted for more Democrats. After all, virtually every elected Democrat has “worked with” Obama (in the sense of doing exactly everything he asked) for the […]

Just a reminder about the Democrat screed on the Surgeon General …

by Skip October 23, 2014

From Betsy’s Page: Don’t buy the Democratic accusations that it is the Republicans’ fault that there is no Surgeon General.

In the second segment of yesterday’s GrokTALK!, Matt Murphy from Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire was opining on the mysteries of SB120, the NH Incumbent protection Act.  SB120 would skew speech rights in favor of politicians (just search SB120 on the Grok for ample details if you are unfamiliar).  He was wondering why the […]

Thumbnail image for Selective Disservice on VA Accountability

The US House overwhelmingly passed a bill on VA accountability that would make it easier to remove incompetent Veterans Administration bureaucrats, but Harry “Road-Block” Reid’s  Senate managed to just barely block the measure as 33 Senate Democrats opposed the Bill. It’s not remarkable unless you note that none of the dissenting Democrats appear to be […]
