Economics Professor Dave Brat was stunned himself last night. In fact, it would be a draw as to who was more stunned, Brat in winning or Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va) for being defeated.

With the backing of grassroots organizing, and without the names of the national Tea Party groups, Dave Brat spent less than $200k to Cantor’s $5  million campaign. Brat was able to capitalize on the backing of radio talk hosts like Laura Ingraham.

So what does Cantor’s defeat mean? The DNC and their talking heads are spinning this as the GOP in turmoil. Or could this be the wake up call the GOP Establishment needed? The next few weeks will be very important for the GOP, for the midterms in November and for the 2016 Presidential race. Let’s hope they know how to handle this situation and make it a positive for the country.


Sadly, not even surprising anymore. Just more verification of the tremendous disadvantage faced by Mitt Romney – or any Republican Presidential Candidate – when the media all over America are such shills for the Democrats. This comment happened to get caught on an ABC News open mic, with the voice reportedly being the “Yahoo! News Washington Bureau Chief.” But you wonder just how much of this goes on that we never hear. My guess is, a great deal.

NewsBusters has all the details.

Mediaite is also reporting the story, pointing out that Barack Obama goes right on fundraising and campaigning during the Hurricane. But, of course, no media criticism for that.

Yahoo Fires David Chalian for Claiming Romneys Want to ‘Party With Black People Dying’ |

From Pat Dollard:

Excerpted from The Washington Examiner: Controversial Democratic strategist and CNN contributor, Hilary Rosen, was hired by DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to coach her on media appearances.

According to a Wall Street Journal report in February, Obama advisers told Wasserman Schultz to “tone it down,” suggesting that she hire “two seasoned Democratic female pros, Anita Dunn and Hilary Rosen,” for media training, in preparation for the upcoming campaign. Wasserman Schultz willingly accepted.

“I’m glad to get constructive criticism,” she said in the Wall Street Journal article.

Rosen is now under fire for suggesting that Mitt Romney’s wife Ann, “never worked a day in her life.”

Today, Patrick Gaspard, executive director of the Democratic National Committee sought to distance the party from Rosen’s comments.

“Hillary Rosen is absolutely not a paid adviser to the DNC or to the Obama campaign, absolutely not,” he said.

But Republicans at the Republican National Committee, have already pulled data on payments made by the DNC to Rosen.

“DNC has paid $120,000 to Rosen’s firm since 2011 for both a “communications consultant” and “media consultant,” tweeted Joe Pounder, the director at the RNC, “Sounds like Dunn and Rosen.”



The same day Obama tells Congress to talk to everyday folks, he jets off to NYC to hobnob w/celebs: #outoftouch

More bad news for Obama…. he’s under water in New York, poll shows: #2012

“It is an understatement to say that President Obama now owns the bad economy.” #Obamanomics

RT @RNCResearch: Even Democrats Are Saying…Obama’s Economic Leadership Is Sorely Lacking.

President Obama said he would be a post-partisan President- do you agree that he has fulfilled that promise?

As the country faces fiscal calamity, Obama’s schedule has been chock full of special access gatherings w/celebs

      Florida’s flip-flop governor, Republican turned Independent (because he couldn’t beat Marco Rubio in the primary), Charlie Crist, has acknowledged that former President Bill Clinton was negotiating for Kendrick Meek (D-Fl) to withdraw from the Senate race, and support Charlie Crist.

      Rubio, who is now 7 points ahead of Crist in the polls, is the odds-on favorite to win the Seante seat on November 2nd. The Meek campaign has confirmed Clinton’s involvement in the discussions, but has denied that Meek had actually agreed to withdraw. Other sources say that Meek had a change of heart, and decided to stay in the race.

     It would appear that the DNC, and the White House, has been trying, behind the scenes, to ensure that the Republicans do not win the Florida seat. However, with four days left in the race, the vote in the Black voter bloc may be in jeopardy, as it is questioned as to why it was Meek they were trying to push out of the race instead of spolier Crist.

      Clinton in the Sestak story! Clinton in the Meek-Crist story! Who is making these decisions?


from the Weekly Standard:

Dear Michael,

You are, I know, a patriot. So I ask you to consider, over this July 4 weekend, doing an act of service for the country you love: Resign as chairman of the Republican party.

Your tenure has of course been marked by gaffes and embarrassments, but I for one have never paid much attention to them, and have never thought they would matter much to the success of the causes and principles we share. But now you have said, about the war in Afghanistan, speaking as RNC chairman at an RNC event, “Keep in mind again, federal candidates, this was a war of Obama’s choosing. This was not something that the United States had actively prosecuted or wanted to engage in.” And, “if [Obama] is such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that’s the one thing you don’t do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan?”

Needless to say, the war in Afghanistan was not “a war of Obama’s choosing.” It has been prosecuted by the United States under Presidents Bush and Obama. Republicans have consistently supported the effort. Indeed, as the DNC Communications Director (of all people) has said, your statement “puts [you] at odds with about 100 percent of the Republican Party.”

And not on a trivial matter. At a time when Gen. Petraeus has just taken over command, when Republicans in Congress are pushing for a clean war funding resolution, when Republicans around the country are doing their best to rally their fellow citizens behind the mission, your comment is more than an embarrassment. It’s an affront, both to the honor of the Republican party and to the commitment of the soldiers fighting to accomplish the mission they’ve been asked to take on by our elected leaders.

There are, of course, those who think we should pull out of Afghanistan, and they’re certainly entitled to make their case. But one of them shouldn’t be the chairman of the Republican party.

Sincerely yours,

William Kristol

“The 72-page document was provided to POLITICO by a Democrat, who said a hard copy had been left in the hotel hosting the $2,500-a-head retreat, the Gasparilla Inn & Club. Sources at the event said the presentation was delivered by Bickhart and by the RNC Finance Chairman, Peter Terpeluk, a former ambassador to Luxembourg under President George W. Bush”
Note: I think it is safe to assume that the Dems have similar planning materials. Might we suggest that all just campaign on something new….. like INTEGRITY.
