Was Mitt Romney Designed to Lose?

Those who follow this blog know that I’ve never been a fan of Mitt Romney. I predicted that he was mathematically incapable of winning when Herman Cain was hot on his tail. When Cain fell from grace and Newt Gingrich rose, there was finally a remnant of true conservatism possible, but that was squashed as well. Then, Rick Santorum emerged …

I am the Problem with the Republican Party

Ever since the GOP primary season started, I’ve been very displeased with Mitt Romney as the Republican Establishment’s anointed choice. He is not a conservative, but perhaps more importantly his health care record with Romneycare will absolutely prohibit him from being able to defeat Barack Obama in November.

General Election Scenarios Favor @RickSantorum

With 22 states very likely to vote for the Republican candidate and 19 states plus Washington DC very likely to vote for President Obama, there are 9 states that will be at the center of each campaign once the Republican nominee is selected.

Democratic National Committee Invokes John McCain to Attack Romney’s Olympic Record

When an enemy attacks a candidate, it can be dismissed as biased. When someone on the same side of the fence challenges the decisions of a candidate, it’s newsworthy. That’s the hope of the Democratic National Committee who released their first advertisement of the election season. In it, they negatively depict one of the aspects of Romney’s past that the …

Romney is Declawed in Time for Santorum to Remain the Front Runner

It has been a whirlwind of a primary season as five candidates have held the top spot in national polling amongst likely Republican voters over the last several months. The only constant has been that Mitt Romney has never fallen below #2 and has fought of Rick Perry, Herman Cain, and Newt Gingrich through their surges. He was recently eclipsed …

Mitt Romney is not a Conservative

American politicians are supposed to be guided by the will of the people through an electorate that decides who will best represent their goals and fill the needs required of office. It can be said that going with what the people want is an asset and should be considered a strength. There are times, however, when personal passion and unwavering …
