That 130 Million Dollar NH Budget Surplus?

by Steve MacDonald January 18, 2017

We brought in revenue above projections but someone already spent it. A projected end-of-year surplus, previously estimated as high as $130 million, does not exist, [Sununu] said. “I’m not sure if it ever existed. When we got in and started looking at the numbers, it’s just not there. We have had some favorable numbers on […]

We submit another account into evidence regarding Hillary’s temperament. We also ask why Republican candidates are responsible for everything Trump says but Democrats skate on all of Hillary’s dirty deeds, the lying, ruining other nations, the lackadaisical handling of national secrets, and the trail of dead bodies. Then it’s on to some local liars who […]

They. Chose. Poorly: Kasich Annoys EVERYBODY!

by Mike November 14, 2015

We discovered, during the summer, that team Sununu had picked Kasich as their moderate Republican standard-bearer for 2016, and further, that Kasich had bet his entire campaign on New Hampshire. Those of us who had watched Kasich on Fox from time to time already weren’t very impressed with either his claims of conservatism or his […]

Shawn Jasper’s Greatest Achievement – UNITY… For O’Brien

by Mike December 3, 2014

Before the GOP caucus voted for Speaker last month, the current NHGOP leadership, and “governors from the last century” weighed in with a letter endorsing Gene Chandler for the job, in the name of “civility”, and “getting along” with Democrats (why??).

With This Bunch Failure Is Always An Option

by Steve MacDonald November 29, 2012

I’m torn between thinking this is just sad or that it’s just funny.  Maybe ironic is a better word? First, the NHGOP establishment power brokers (who forced Jack Kimball out) just cleared the field to make sure that the preferred, groomed, in-debted (and in debt) to them, moderate insider was the only candidate left running […]
