Ron Paul’s Excellent Minnesota Adventure

Now, in case you have missed the Ron Paul story, he is the wiry little, gray haired, congressman, who challenged the big boys in the nationally televised Republican debates earlier this year.  It was quite a show. McCain, Romney and Huckabee would argue over who was the first to be dutifully committed to the troopContinue reading “Ron Paul’s Excellent Minnesota Adventure”

McCain camp did not talk to Franklin Graham either!

Well, it just gets richer and richer.  Now, it appears that no one on the McCain team actually talked with Franklin Graham, let alone, sent him a letter.  Apparently they left him a message on his answering machine.  And it was months ago!   According to the Graham people it was during the primaries and itContinue reading “McCain camp did not talk to Franklin Graham either!”

John McCain and Billy Graham

Inside the McCain Campaign’s Big Foul Up. Oops, apparently I hit a nerve.  My NEWSMAX article on the McCain Campaign turning down a meeting between Billy Graham and Senator McCain prompted outrage from the Senator’s staff.  And then desperate calls from John McCain staffers to the Graham Association prompted clarifications from their side too. ButContinue reading “John McCain and Billy Graham”

McCain Camp Says No to Billy Graham

Now, it turns out, that the John McCain campaign is so spooked by preachers that it doesn’t want to meet with Dr. Billy Graham.  Which sort of makes his rapprochement with the evangelicals a little difficult, wouldn’t you say? Remember Brian Jacobs, the George W. Bush activist who helped me put together a meeting betweenContinue reading “McCain Camp Says No to Billy Graham”

Memo to John McCain: Pick Joe Lieberman for Vice President

  So what can John McCain do?  If evangelicals number 42% of the population (according to Barna,) and if their super churches are the Republican equivalent of the unions in the Democrat Party of the 1950s and 60s, the key to increased voter registration, the machine to turn out the vote; and if these evangelicalContinue reading “Memo to John McCain: Pick Joe Lieberman for Vice President”

McCain and Able: How the GOP lost the evangelicals in 2008 and put Obama in the White House

  “For the Lord had regard for Obama and his offering but he did not have regard for McCain and his offering.” When the McCain-Davis-Black team accepted and then publicly repudiated the recent endorsement of evangelical Christian leaders they broke one of the most powerful laws of modern political life.  You can’t attack evangelical leadersContinue reading “McCain and Able: How the GOP lost the evangelicals in 2008 and put Obama in the White House”

Chelsea Clinton for president

E. D. Hill is one of the most interesting of the sassy, unpredictable television hosts on FOX NEWS.  Beautiful, accomplished, an author in her own right, Hill always jumps on any passing flotsam in the newsroom and always makes something clever with it, exposing it for the world to see. This is an excerpt from myContinue reading “Chelsea Clinton for president”

Ron Paul’s Best You Tube Moment

Here it is, the one Ron Paul You Tube that captures it all, Mike Huckabee’s innocence, Mitt Romney’s regret and John McCain’s cynicism.  Here are all the dynamics that have made the Republican nomination process for this 2008 cycle a fascinating exercise in futility. The cast: Of course there is Ron Paul himself, incredulous atContinue reading “Ron Paul’s Best You Tube Moment”

Robespierre wants the names of those conspirators !

Re: Yesterday’s blog. Now I am getting a lot of unwanted  e-mails trying to identify the former governor and senator that I referred to in my last blog.  No, I am not trying to protect elitists in the Republican Party, just being courteous.  If I had thought it would help anyone to mention their namesContinue reading “Robespierre wants the names of those conspirators !”

How a GOP conspiracy continues to cheat Ron Paul

(Here is a note in a bottle, thrown out onto the ocean, from someone inside the conspiracy. I hope it is found.) So, if the Ron Paul Movement has struck a chord, then why did he not do better in the race for the GOP nomination? 1.) Well, because it is a movement that hasContinue reading “How a GOP conspiracy continues to cheat Ron Paul”
