    Here is audio of Rush Limbaugh today identifying several "phony conservatives," and saying it is just "stupid" for anyone to say there is no real difference between Democrats and Republicans. Limbaugh said there are several "phony conservatives" who like to "dump on" conservatism, and use their opportunities to advocate changing the conservative message to fit polls and what seems to be popular at the moment. He specifically mentioned David Brooks, Ross Douthat, and Frank Luntz. Limbaugh also said people are "naive" who think there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans. He said the crowd that showed up to protest...

    He coulda been a contenda! He coulda been the first Black President instead Colin Powell is a discredited Republican armchair political pundit whose opinion is just as valuable as the “Obama-sexual” Chris Matthews. Listening to Chris Matthews talk about Barack Obama is like listening to your father talk about having sex with your mother, Yuk! And listening to Colin Powell speaking for Republicans is like listening to Benedict Arnold speaking for America (yeah… that’s just not working Mr. Powell!). So after his much ballyhooed endorsement of Barack Hussein Obama it seems that Powell is showing buyers remorse...

    Michael Smerconish is probably what you would call a blowhard. When he’s not on the radio — on Friday, he did nine hours of talk radio alone — he’s on TV, doing much of the same. He’s kind of tricky: a Republican who backed Obama.

    Barack Obama's campaign is rolling out a number of centrist Republicans who are endorsing the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee over Republican rival John McCain - in a show of his ability to win cross-over votes. A conference call Tuesday featured former Iowa Rep. Jim Leach, former White House intelligence adviser Rita Hauser and former Rhode Island Sen. Lincoln Chafee, who represented his state as a Republican, but switched to become a Democrat so he could vote for Obama in the primary. Leach predicted that a lot of Republicans and independents are going to be attracted by Obama's campaign. The Obama...

    A conservative change? A recent Associated Press story cites several prominent black conservatives as being "conflicted" about voting for Barack Obama for president. While each of the conservatives acknowledges ideological differences with Obama, the prospect of a black president makes it, in the words of radio-talk-show host Armstrong Williams, "hard to vote against [Obama] in November." The article quotes only one person, however, who will actually support Obama -- the self-described moderate John McWhorter. The rest of the interviewees (with the exception of Michael Steele, who says he'll do everything in his power to defeat Obama) are undecided, expressing sentiments...

    WASHINGTON — One of President Nixon’s daughters, Julie Nixon Eisenhower, apparently supports a Democrat in this year’s presidential contest — Barack Obama. Eisenhower has contributed the maximum amount allowed during the primary season to Obama’s campaign: $2,300. Federal Election Commission records show she gave Obama’s campaign $1,000 on Feb. 4, another $1,000 on Feb. 18 and $300 on March 5. One of her father’s staunchest defenders during the Watergate scandal, she married the grandson of another Republican president, David Eisenhower, just before her father took office. Since her father’s resignation, she has written several books and is now co-chair of...
  • "Lifelong Republican" Obama Supporter In Pennsylvania Exposed As A Fraud

    Watching the Democrat Presidential candidates swing through the state of Pennsylvania, it's as if the state all of the sudden had an epidemic of "lifelong Republicans", going through a change of heart and switching over to the Democrats. Not to take part in their primaries, but due to ideological reasons. Obama seemed to be the major, perhaps the only, beneficiary of all these former "lifelong Republicans", now Democrat voters. It seems that we are dealt this left wing propaganda every election, every primary year. Hordes of "lifelong Republicans" who tell us that they are now Democrats. In reality, the vast...

    ORLANDO, Fla. -- Four men in Orlando were charged with a hate crime after they pummeled a 62-year-old woman and her two mentally-challenged companions at a public park after they didn't pay a "fee" for being white, police said. Investigators said the victims were walking into a Kaley Park when they were confronted by Christopher Colbert, Erick Golden, Willie Pritts and Antoniette Boone. Police said the victims were told that since they are white, they had to pay a fee to be in the park. When the three didn't pay, the men beat them, officers said. One of the victims...
