Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who Republicans chose to respond to President Obama’s State of the Union address this year, says Republicans are giving up on Obamacare. They’re going to start tinkering with it instead, thereby setting the stage for it staying around. Once the GOP fixes all the objectionable parts, there’ll be no reason to scrap it, but there’ll also be no funding mechanisms. All the | Read More »
Last week, Democrat Governor of Illinois Pat Quinn, via Twitter, promoted and, presumably therefore associated himself with, an article from the Chicago Sun Times that compared being a black Republican to being a Nazi collaborator. Eventually, as Greta outlines in the clip below, the tweets were deleted on the grounds that it was offensive to Jews. From the offending column: As a general rule, individuals | Read More »

Chairman Reince Priebus spared no kind words for remarks made by Cliven Bundy yesterday regarding slavery and entitlements. In a statement issued this morning, Priebus said, “Bundy’s comments are completely beyond the pale. Both highly offensive and 100% wrong on race.” This morning on the popular Coffee and Markets, guest Chairman Reince Preibus discussed a number of issues with the hosts.

Republican leaders, on the | Read More »

Liberals like to imagine a political future in which increasing ethnic diversity will inexorably shift the partisan balance in America from Republicans to Democrats. But demography is not destiny, and the political implications of increasing diversity cannot be inferred simply from projected demographic shifts. The Republican-leaning white majority is shrinking, while Barack Obama’s vote share […]
More and more Republicans inside the beltway are whispering that they can fix Obamacare. We’ve already seen House Republicans do it. They’ve started fixing Obamacare, claiming they are dismantling it. Really, they are making it more and more likely that Obamacare will, in some perverted form, stay. Leading Republican intellectuals are trotting out columns and white papers on what to do to fix Obamacare — | Read More »
If you think the debate over illegal immigration revolves strictly around the disagreement over what to do with those already here illegally, you haven’t been paying attention. For anyone who really wants to end illegal immigration and preserve our sovereignty, the solution is not an enigma. All we have to do is actually implement the border and interior enforcement mechanisms that both Republicans and Democrats claim to | Read More »
