2014 establishment Republicans just as poisonous as the 2010 version

When groups like the T.E.A. Party were on the rise leading up to the mid-term elections of 2010, Barry Goldwater Jr. recalled how similar they were to the conservative movement his father stood for. He was particularly impressed with how it reminded him “…of the conservative movement in 1960 and 1964,” and he concluded that they were “…people who are sick and tired of the country moving to the left.” While the final results were mixed, T.E.A. Party candidates represented the Republican party in several key races where the party establishment candidate was seen as being just as bad as…

Senator Patty Murray CAGW Porker Of The Month

(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) named Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) its March 2013 Porker of the Month for spearheading Senate Democrats’ excessively expensive fiscal year (FY) 2014 budget proposal, “Foundation for Growth: Restoring the Promise of American Opportunity.” The budget is Senate Democrats’ first attempt to pass a budget in four years. It is clear why they waited so long: they did not want taxpayers to see the gory details. According to the Senate Budget Committee minority staff, Sen. Murray’s budget never balances, increases spending by 62 percent over 10 years, and includes…

Climate Change And The Presidential Campaign

Global warming has been off the energy news radar as high gas prices have usurped the spotlight, however Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has brought it back. “Defense Secretary?” you might ask. “Not Energy Secretary Steven Chu or EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson?” No. It was Leon Panetta, who, at an Environmental Defense Fund reception on Thursday May 3, declared “The area of climate change has a dramatic impact on national security.” (Are we going to declare war on countries like Canada for backing out of the Kyoto climate change commitments, or China and India for never supporting them in the first place?)…

New Political Ad Documents Obama’s Energy Successes

In a new ad released by the American Energy Alliance, we are given a glimpse into the energy successes of the Obama Administration. Successes such as: Opposition to oil exploration in Alaska Wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on bankrupt alternative energy companies – can you say Solyndra? Killing the Keystone Pipeline Unfortunately, these policy “successes” are “failures” when it comes to providing for America’s energy needs. Check out the ad that will air in Florida, Colorado, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio and Virginia. It has a strong message.   And from the “truth hurts, doesn’t it” department, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz shifts the focus to the messenger…

This Is Budget Leadership?

This Is Budget Leadership?

The main reason that Obama is lacking when it comes to budget leadership is that he has never had to deal with one, and thanks to the rudderless ship – or should I say, Reid-erless – being captained by Harry Reid, he likely never will. I know Dirty Harry thinks the Constitution gives him the right to spend federal money, but doesn’t he also realize that the Constitution requires Congress to draft a budget to guide them in that spending? Actually, that’s a rhetorical question. From Obamacare to unconstitutional appointments, Reid has demonstrated an understanding of the Constitution, he just chooses to ignore…
