Wholesale numbers, wholesale failure

Posted: August 13, 2012 at 2:30 pm   /   Politics

Second quarter numbers are out this week for the wholesale sector and unfortunately for President Obama, the numbers offer few positives to highlight and instead reinforce the fact that the economy is not recovering as the Obama machine is trying so hard to have voters believe.  The numbers are especially hard to take following another […]

Posted: August 3, 2012 at 2:10 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Politics

Today, we were informed that the unemployment rate increased to 8.3% as employers added 163,000 jobs. President Obama is likely to celebrate this report as “X number of consecutive months of creating jobs.” The problem here is that if expectations are low enough, you can celebrate anything. Literally,anything. And that appears to be Barack Obama’s latest strategy – lowering expectations […]

Romney Recognizes a Veteran

Believe in Our Future

Posted: August 3, 2012 at 10:30 am   /   Elections, Politics

Mitt Romney and his campaign are in a race against Barack Obama to define the former Massachusetts Governor in a favorable light and control the campaign narrative. It’s obvious that Obama’s tactic will be to tear down his challenger rather than run on the merit of his record.  When that record includes running up record […]

Send in the clowns: GSA scandal continues

Posted: August 1, 2012 at 3:59 pm   /   Elections, Politics

Clowns are scary, but not as scary as the fact that the General Services Administration spent $823,000 hanging out with them at a Las Vegas convention. There are a total of 78 GSA conferences that Congress has or will investigate.  Of course, one might wonder why there have been 78 recent conferences at all for […]

Obama Fundraising with Solyndra Players Proves He Still Doesn’t Get It

Posted: July 26, 2012 at 1:30 pm   /   Politics

Incumbent President Barack Obama attended a re-election fundraiser in Piedmont, California recently. That’s not out of the ordinary during this time in the election cycle.  In fact, it is quite necessary for any presidential hopeful to raise funds for his campaign. What was out of the ordinary was the fact that two of the attendees […]

Did Matt Salmon Lobby for stimulus funds for the city of El Mirage?

Posted: July 23, 2012 at 7:34 pm   /   Arizona, Elections, Politics, Videos

Matt Salmon’s firm had a contract with the city of El Mirage worth $300,000 to lobby for stimulus funds.  As the mayor explains in the clip, “$300,000 is also a drop in the bucket compared to the stimulus funds that our neighbors receive.  The reason they receive that money is because every other city has a […]

A Tax Hike That Threatens 700,000 Jobs? You DID Build That, Mr. President

Posted: July 20, 2012 at 10:30 am   /   Elections, Politics

Democrats have been “put in [a] tight spot” by their threats to tank our economy and harm our national security if they don’t get a small business tax hike. A new Ernst & Young study found President Obama’s plan threatens more than 700,000 American jobs – a frightening prospect for families after more than three […]

Stimulus-Backed Solar Facility Touted By Harry Reid Shuts Down

Posted: July 19, 2012 at 12:00 pm   /   Politics

Another one bites the dust: The Review-Journal was unable to confirm with Amonix that it had ceased operations at the facility. Scribe’s attempt to confirm the report likewise went unanswered. If solar panel production at the facility has permanently ceased, it could prove awkward for Reid, who touted the “permanent green jobs” that Amonix’s Nevada […]
