As Obamacare Unfolds, Will Dems Unite?

by R. Carnavale December 17th, 2013 Democratic Deliberations
obama et al whAs 2013 draws to a close and many of the nation's 47 million uninsured register for Obamacare, President Obama and Democratic Party leaders have told the rest of the party to fall in line in support of the new health care law. The federal HealthCare.gov site is now up and running relatively smoothly, so Obama and his team are encouraging incumbent Democrats in Congress to embrace the health care law, despite the fact that many of them are furious because their public opinion poll standings have taken a hit due to the millions of Americans who have received cancellation

Democrats Invoke Nuclear Option

by T Akery November 26th, 2013 Republican Reflections
51The Democrats have done something that the Republicans have only threatened do in the past. They have changed the Senate rules so that Presidential nominations need only a simple majority for approval -- no longer 60%. Whether it will bite them in the butt remains to be seen. But this is something that they never should have done. There will be a price to pay for this. When the Senate turns back to the Republicans, they may regret ever having done it.

So, the excuse for this was the filibuster of Presidential nominees to the court circuits. The filibuster is

No “Filibuster Fun” This Time

by Eric M. Blake November 25th, 2013 Conservative Considerations
reid obama wh(Before I begin, I must give a word of thanks to Michele Pesula Kuegler, our CEO and editor-in-chief, for her offering to interview yours truly for her column this week.  I hope you all find it enjoyable — I certainly enjoyed myself!  Okay: to business . . .)

[Editor's note: You can read Eric's interview here.]

Some things never change, dear readers — as Solomon would say, "There is nothing new under the sun."  The leopard cannot change its spots.  Death.  Taxes.  And an American Left filled with liars and hypocrites.

You may recall, a few years back, when the GOP

Congress Wins!

by Ronald A. Rowe November 21st, 2013 Winners & Losers
little yellow winnerWe mostly like to have our fun in the Winners and Losers column, trying our best to poke our elected officials as they deserve regardless of political affiliation. But we do occasionally take something seriously, in this case the unfortunate incident involving Virginia Senator Creigh Deeds and his son. The condolences and best wishes of the entire Camp Campaign staff go out to the Senator and his family.

Congress -- Winner -- No, really. This week Congress is a winner. The winner of the Anthony Weiner Award. You may remember that Weiner was in the Loser column so often that

My Tower Is Taller Than Yours Is

by Ronald A. Rowe November 14th, 2013 Winners & Losers
chicagoObamacare Navigators – Losers – The shady remnants of the disgraced and disbanded ACORN group are back in action as "Navigators" to help American citizens navigate the treacherous waters of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  And almost immediately, some navigators have shown their true colors (according to video collected by James O'Keefe, see below) by encouraging applicants to lie and game the system.  Some people never learn.  The navigators are apparently caught red-handed urging actors posing as clients to lie on their health care enrollment forms.

Project Veritas – Winner – Project Veritas had its heyday during the

Personal Winners and Losers

by Ronald A. Rowe November 7th, 2013 Winners & Losers
christie femaThis week’s edition of Winners and Losers is a little more personal than usual. Don’t worry. It is not “personal” in the sense that I am going to open up to you about my childhood or my deepest, darkest emotions. It is “personal” in the sense that rather than scouring the national and international headlines as I normally do, I chose the winners and losers this time around based on my personal observations and interaction out in the real world this past week. My personal observations and interactions plus Chris Christie, who just can’t be ignored.

Chris Christie –

Monster Mash

by Eric M. Blake November 4th, 2013 Conservative Considerations
hospital hallwayFirst:

Let’s look at what President Obama’s been solemnly swearing about his healthcare plan since the 2008 campaign: “Uh, Let Me Be Clear: If you like your healthcare plan, you’ll be able to keep your healthcare plan — period.”

He’s said it so much, I’d be pretty surprised to encounter an adult American who hasn’t had that promise grounded into their minds.  Obama left no room for ambiguity whatsoever.  As such, he has no excuse whatsoever, now that we are getting story after story of people (last count’s in the millions) who’ve lost their plans — plans they like — because

More Obamacare Problems

by T Akery October 29th, 2013 Republican Reflections
DIGITAL CAMERASo, the initial roll out was a disaster. While this wasn't surprising to a lot of people, the actual fixes are taking dramatically longer than should be necessary for a new website that is anticipating lots of visitors. There are still many individuals who are having problems signing in, having trouble with secret questions and passwords and just can't get to the place where they really want to be -- at the comparison costs. President Obama has even had to address these issues.

Since the projected timeline for these fixes is after Thanksgiving, I suspect that a ton of people

No Secret Losers

by Ronald A. Rowe October 24th, 2013 Winners & Losers
sebelius hhs closeupThere isn’t much debate about who the biggest loser of this past week might be. I’m looking at you, Republicans. But there was more than enough loseriness to go around and -- more surprisingly -- we had a few clear winners as well.

Congressional Republicans -- Losers -- They came, they saw, they gave up. Agree or disagree with the Republicans’ stance on the Affordable Care Act, I think we can all agree that the GOP lost this round. They took a stand -- let’s assume for the sake of argument that this was a purely ideological stand for what

Why the White House Should Not Give In

by Jessica B. October 8th, 2013 Democratic Deliberations
wh mtgThis week has been one of the most depressing political weeks that I can remember. In fact I don’t think there has been another week where most of us that fall to the right and the left just wanted to throw up our hands and say, "Can’t we just fire Congress? Recall them? Get a do-over?"

But now the government has entered into a very dangerous situation. It is dangerous because one side has backed the whole system into a corner and has no real exit strategy.

And if the White House surrenders and gives into the demands of the House,

Common Sense on the “Shutdown”

by Eric M. Blake October 7th, 2013 Conservative Considerations
obama gets thru whLet’s begin this week by getting a few truths out of the way, which have proven more and more undeniable, in the Age of Obama:

First: Commentators going out of their way to claim to be “unbiased” are the least likely to keep their biases from affecting their judgment.

Let’s be honest, folks: all of us — each and every one — are biased in some way.  We’re all limited by our subjective perspectives.  To borrow a phrase from Ol’ Barry, Let Me Be Clear: I am, and have always considered myself, a Conservative — I don't pretend to be anything else.  As

On the Topic of the Government Shutdown

by Jason Lightner October 4th, 2013 Independent Ideas
closed signAs I stood in line behind a lady at the checkout of my local grocery store last night, I managed to somehow maintain a superhuman amount of self-restraint. There were no options available to me other than to stand there, waiting for what seemed like hours, yet in reality was probably only about 15 minutes or so. The pregnant, low-income woman before me, with her mismatched socks barely fitting into her Dollar Store flip flops slowly instructed the young, female cashier with the hipster glasses on how to properly process government assistance checks. My groceries were already laid out
