The Democrat Obamacare lock-step talking points are already out there: Uncertainty

by Skip July 19, 2017

You have to hand it to the Democrats – when somebody says “Speak”, they do.  Just like their followers that send in the exact same email or letter when urged.  I know this because I get the Democrat emails that say to send an email.  And Guess Who has fallen right into line? US Senator […]

CloseUP: Rich Ashooh in CD1 and an even crappier transcript from WMUR

by Skip April 3, 2016

In the second third of CloseUP, Rich Ashooh did his pre-announcement announcement for US Congress in CD-1 and challenging Frank Guinta, the incumbent.  We covered Rich back in 2010 when he ran the first time and I guess the interactions I had with him were favorable – I started calling him “Gentleman Rich” as he was […]

by Skip March 6, 2014

This will be the gift that will keep on giving – the Kiss of Death, that is.  To the Republicans, that is.  They just didn’t realize it, all those Smart People in the NH State Senate with Rs after their names that voted to implement Obamacare’s Medicaid Expansion (even though they tried to call it […]
