The Strange Revival Of Republican America

 

 

 

” For years people have predicted the Republican party’s demise. The decline of whites as a share of the US population and the spread of tolerant values, such as support for gay marriage, would gradually snuff out its appeal. Yet the Grand Old Party has a stubborn way of bouncing back. The coming midterm elections in November are unlikely to be an exception, while the Republican field for the next presidential election looks stronger than at any time since 2000. Tomorrow may indeed arrive at some point. But for the time being, today is going pretty well for the Republicans.

  Take the fast-approaching congressional elections. President Barack Obama is giving everything he has in terms of fundraising to retain Democratic control of the Senate. The remainder of his presidency depends on it. Even diehard optimists doubt Democrats could regain control of the House. Yet the more Mr Obama throws at the Senate, the lower his poll numbers fall. Last week he hit a new low of 41 per cent approval versus 54 per cent disapproval. History says an unpopular president’s party loses ground in midterm elections. This year is unlikely to buck the trend.”

 

     Financial Times has a lengthy piece on GOP chances for the upcoming 2014 midterms and while the article is every bit as condescending as it’s title would suggest there remains much truth that even their writer’s bias cannot hide .

 

 

 

 

 

 

What Do Liberals Say To A Black Conservative?

 

Black Trailblazers

 

 

” A black conservative is a minority of a minority. With American blacks supporting Democrats and president Obama in overwhelming numbers, African Americans who openly identify as conservatives or align themselves with the Republican Party are often viewed as being traitors to the black cause by other members of the black community.

  But, if you attended the RNC’s 2nd Annual Black Republican Trailblazer Awards last week, you wouldn’t know it. “

 

   These are courageous individuals , standing up for their beliefs , deserve much admiration for enduring the “tolerance” that comes their way from the majority of fellow blacks who remain enslaved on the plantation of liberal dependence .

 

” What MRCTV saw at the Trailblazer Awards was not a group of defeated and defensive conservatives -but, rather, a group of conservatives who believe that the tide is turning in their favor and who won’t stop fighting until it does.”

WAR! TRUMP, LEVIN PUMMEL ROVE AS CONSERVATIVE BATTLE ESCALATES

 

 

 

 

 

” Trump and Levin hit Rove where it really hurts.  First Trump criticized Rove’s effectiveness as a campaign strategist by slamming his SuperPAC, American Crossroads’ performance in the 2012 election: “Four hundred million dollars was wasted.  They do the worst ads I have ever seen, ever.”

Levin followed up with what might be the most significant line of attack against Rove:  “I would say to the wealthy donors out there, ‘Why do you keep donating to him?’ why don’t you donate to all these groups who are actually grassroots, who are actually fighting and who are actually effective?” “

Michael Barone: Who Gets Hurt If We Go Off The Cliff?

 

 

 

 

” Voters’ predictions of how they will respond to an event are not always reliable. For that reason I have tended to discount polls that say far more will blame Republicans than Obama for going over the fiscal cliff. Another reason is that individuals are usually more popular than groups, especially Congress. Presidents almost always are more popular than “Republicans in Congress” or “Democrats in Congress.” The inclusion in the Hart/McInturff question of the “equally to blame” option and the fact that a solid majority embrace it suggest to me that going over the fiscal cliff may be more dangerous to Obama than has generally been assumed. Voters focus more on the president than they do on congressional leaders. It seems likely to me that both Obama and congressional leaders would suffer in public opinion if we go off the cliff. That’s what happened after the failure of the grand bargain talks in summer 2011.”

 

 

 

 

   Mike Maharrey on the origins of the Republican party and it’s integral association with state’s rights and nullification .

   Remember who fought to end slavery (republicans) and who fought to deny equal rights to the black man based on the color of his skin (democrats).

   And remember that the democrats efforts to combat equal rights continued for over a century after the slaves were freed .

   Bull Conner , George Wallace and Robert (grand kleagle) Byrd were democrats after all .

    Mr . Maharrey demonstrates the utility of the nullification process in asserting the sovereignty of the states and how that power can be put to work in ending the threat to individual liberty that is Obamacare .

  ” The Republican Party grew from the soil of state sovereignty and nullification. Now is the time for
Republicans to rediscover those roots and support state nullification of the federal health
care act.”
