There’s a really interesting study that’s been released by the College Republican (Inc.) National Committee that bears a little discussion:
The College Republican National Committee released a report on Monday outlining the major challenges facing the GOP as it seeks to rebrand and redefine itself in the aftermath of the 2012 election. The survey [...]
Long-time readers of my blog and friends of Team Actor212 know I’m in the tank for Apple products. By my count, I’ve either purchased for myself or as gifts about two dozen Apple products over the years. Without getting into a Windows v. Mac debate here, I find Apple’s technology and ease of use, combined [...]
Here’s the thing: the best strategy for Republicans is to just let it go:
WASHINGTON — The scandals dogging President Barack Obama are a political gift to Republicans, who could use some good luck after recent election losses. It’s not clear, however, how Republicans can best capitalize on Democrats’ woes, legislatively or politically.
Last November’s [...]
I realize conservatives have to strike while the iron is hot, but this is pure stupidity:
And they’re off: With no defined field of candidates and the last election just six months in the rearview mirror, American Crossroads on Sunday aired the first attack ad of the 2016 presidential campaign, panning Hillary Clinton for her [...]
This fight could shape up to be the nastiest of the next three years ahead of the Presidential campaign:
WASHINGTON — Senator Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, aggressively pushed back Tuesday against a Heritage Foundation report that estimated new immigration legislation would cost taxpayers $6.3 trillion by using the foundation’s longstanding support for dynamic scoring [...]
I really hope that you had the good sense to swallow your coffee before reading this…and no, you read it correctly: Ted Cruz really is floating a trial balloon. He’s not denying that he’s considering the possibility of running for President in 2016. The fact that Cruz is the most hated wackjob on Capitol Hill [...]
Witnesses to them that died,
The blood avengers at his side,
The Furies’ troop forever stands.
Aeschylus was more right than he knew.
I’ll leave it to Gabby Giffords to explain what this post is about:
SENATORS say they fear the N.R.A. and the gun lobby. But I think that [...]

…I wish I was an ignorant Republican, Inc-er.
I did my taxes last night. It was not pretty.
I had an instructor for Tax Accounting when I was Actorino212, and he once said something really profound.
Which is to say it would mean nothing to a Teabagger.
He said, “Never regret having a large tax [...]
…a Grand Army of the Republicans, Inc.?
ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says his party needs to increase its numbers without changing its political platform in order to beat Democrats.
The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/Yx0a1L) that Priebus made the remarks during a speech Saturday in Albuquerque.
His remarks came [...]
When two elephants battle, it is the grass that suffers. Welcome to my blog, fellow blade! The Dueling Budgets battle has begun, and Republicans, Inc. are playing the banjo:
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans are sending mixed signals in agreeing to meet with President Barack Obama for talks over the budget impasse, while Obama is [...]

If Nov. 7 brought pangs of withdrawal from the end of the presidential race — good news!
The next one has already started .
Run, do not walk, to the local newsstand and pick up a copy of this week’s Time Magazine for the lengthy investigative reporting done by Steven Brill on the price-gouging and profiteering of the American medical system. From doctors to hospitals to insurance companies (which actually almost come off as heroes in this tale), Brill [...]
I have a modest proposal for President Obama in which he can screw around with Republican opposition to the confirmation of Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary. I’ll get to that in a minute. Let’s take a look at what’s going on:
On Wednesday Senate Republicans forced the Senate to a 60-vote threshold on the confirmation [...]
Thus goeth Marco Rubio’s Presidential aspirations. Apparently, Rubio can’t stand the heat. But, as to the President’s State of the Union address, all seems to be in order. It was populist, and took much more liberal stances on issues that Obama had in his first term, as it followed closely on the heels of his [...]
