Thumbnail image for Donald Trump Can Say Anything

William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection writes, My point with any big government person, be it Trump, Obama or Hillary, is that once you give them the power, it’s hard to get it back and you lose control over your own lives. You end up putting your faith that they will not abuse that power. If […]

Oh, She’s Back – Donor Class Beware

by Ed Naile January 21, 2016

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump for President yesterday and the usual crowd again proclaimed, “big deal.” I asked myself why she might needlessly jump into a primary where she knows and is friendly with several of the combatants. Very little of what I heard Rush Limbaugh refer to is easily found on […]

Christie Endorsement Fist Bump or “Missed” Bump

by Steve MacDonald December 3, 2015
Thumbnail image for Christie Endorsement Fist Bump or “Missed” Bump

The Union Leader has endorsed Gov. Chris Christie for the Republican nomination as have Jeff Chidester and Donna Sytek, suggesting, if nothing else, and interesting range of “appeal.” While we are fans of what has come to be known as Chris Christie Porn–the videos of town-hall style meetings where Gov. Christie straight talks his way through […]

The SEIU has a reputation.  Mean, ranting, left-wing, all-Obama, and did we mention left-wing?  The NH-SEA (SEIU) is the big government union around New Hampshire and their leadership whiles away their time and effort keeping Democrats in power.  Spending always goes up and your taxes with them. If you want less money in your pocket […]

Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran: Is he the example Scott Brown is following for the Primary?

by Skip June 8, 2014

Mississippi just had a primary on the Republican side where State Senator Chris McDaniels, a TEA Party candidate, out edged long term US Senator Thad Cochran (76 and in the US Senate since 1972) but not by enough to forestall a runoff (in three weeks).  From NYT via Hot Air: Senator Thad Cochran’s supporters opened Mississippi’s […]

Like many of us in Liberal Bob Odell’s State Senate District 8, I am disappointed that our Senator is devoting so much time trying to find new ways to raise taxes on the hard-working people in New Hampshire.  You’d have thought that voting to expand Obamacare was enough. It was not. In his never-ending quest […]
