Scott Walker Is Not Ready For Prime Time As Proven By John Kasich

At the Republicans Governors Association Conference, a little preliminary bout for the 2016 GOP Presidential Primary Campaign found Ohio Governor John Kasich showing just how shallow and how ignorant our Governor Scott Walker is. And hopefully the national media won’t be quite as complacent as the Wisconsin media has been during Gov. Walker’s three gubernatorial […]

Another Desperate And Irresponsible Attempt To Smear The GOP

Apparently I am not the only desperate liberal blogger who wants to smear the GOP in their own words…about that grant to UW-Madison to study the sleep habits of fruit flies and mice.

We tried destroying it, bribing farmers to […]

The President On The Keystone XL Pipeline

Just what I have been telling you all along:

I will have more on this later.

New Leadership In Washington?
