SOTU: Stay The Course Or Give Up

What a powerful speech! Bush knocked this one out of the park, and the Democrats made so many unforced errors it was pathetic. I will leave the detailed analysis to the seasoned bloggers (besides I have a movie date with my wife to finish Star Wars Episode II). But Bush just nailed some issues and […]

Iranian Bravado Backed Ny Nuke?

My biggest concern about the Iranian bravado has been it is a dumb game to play if they did not yet have a nuclear warhead of some kind. They saw how bluffing the US worked for Saddam. The Mullah’s may be mad – but they are not stupid. Now some are saying what I suspected […]

I guess having to shutdown one of their blogs last week finally woke up the Washington Post to the fact the far left liberal base is on the war path – against the democrats.

9-11 and NSA, How To Lose A War

In an excellent opinion piece out today Debra Burlingame, widow of 9-11, illustrates why those against the NSA surveillance of terrorists are wrong – dead wrong: NBC News aired an “exclusive” story in 2004 that dramatically recounted how al-Hazmi and al-Mihdhar, the San Diego terrorists who would later hijack American Airlines flight 77 and fly […]

Dean is a Financial Nightmare

Published by under All General Discussions

For the Dems at least. In this previous post I highlighted the fact the reps were well ahead of the dems financially. It appears Dean can spend it quicker than he can get it – not to mention all the donors are probably deciding their is little to no hope for any return on their […]
