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. Conservatives don’t like him. Moderates don’t trust him. The only people who …

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. For a Republican victory, it’s easy to see that Santorum would have an easier road to the …

The Broken System: Santorum Leads Nationally But Everything Hinges On Michigan

It’s an antiquated system designed before the internet and with the intention of allowing voters and delegates to see their nominees in person. It harkens to a day when trains crossed from sea to sea with candidates waving at people who were lining up just for a glimpse. Those days are behind us. The system should be as well. 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 …

Santorum Pulls Ahead of Romney in Latest National Poll

The latest CBS News/NY Times Poll among Republican Primary Voters shows Rick Santorum taking his first nationwide lead against Mitt Romney, 30%-27%. New Gingrich, who led this poll just 5 weeks ago, fell to 4th with 10% behind Ron Paul’s 12%. This, the most volatile primary season in recent history, has shown that there really is no true front runner. …

Should Gingrich Step Aside to Spite Romney with Santorum?

In 1996, many conservatives were asking Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to step aside in light of his admission of violating ethics rules. He obliged back then. Today, many of the same conservatives (and a lot of newer ones) are wondering if the same thing should happen. This time, it’s not about what he did wrong but about what …

Santorum is Strengthening Obama’s Chances for Re-Election

Read the conservative response (which sort of agrees with me!) in this open letter to Rick Santorum. The only candidate who truly scares me is looking more and more likely to lose the Florida primary and therefore the GOP candidacy thanks in part to Rick Santorum. Despite Mitt Romney’s strong poll numbers against Obama, it’s easy to see that he …

Newt Gingrich is the Only Candidate that can Beat Obama

South Carolina Republicans, take note before the upcoming primary. Newt Gingrich is the only candidate that can beat Barack Obama. This isn’t a statement that has been building up based upon continuous, unwavering approval from a passionate supporter. This comes from someone who has been studying every debate, as many speaking engagements as possible, previous history, Obama’s campaign strategies, and …

3 Reasons Why Democrats Are Drooling Over the Santorum Rise in Iowa

While it’s still likely that Romney or Paul will win Iowa, Rick Santorum has made a statement by surging at the right moment in the polls. He has put nearly all of his efforts into winning Iowa, spending 101 days there. Michele Bachmann is a distant second with 79 days in the Buckeye state. Democrats are loving it. There are …
