God Bless you Clint!  On the chat feed there were some less than enthusiastic comments along with many positive ones about his empty suit Obama act . Do people know you how well this connects with undecideds?  If you don’t then you don’t know undecideds.  It was perfect.   Time to fire Obama is the message. […]

The big hilarious joke on Twitter today is that the alleged disaster of Clint Eastwood’s speech was in fact a secret agent mission, sent on a kamikaze run by the Obama campaign to sink Romney’s big night. Makes perfect sense….because without Clint’s stumble…the masses of Twitter would have been spending the night high-fiving and celebrating […]

Apparently, I should be offended when someone suggests “going Dutch.”  Because it apparently is some negative stereotype that the Dutch are cheap.  To which I say, “of course they’re cheap.  Most Dutchmen would not consider that a negative.”  (katievs can back me up on this, I bet) And, “holding down the fort” is offensive to […]

“Fact-checkers” seem to be the liberal media’s newest attempt to retake control of the infinite channel media universe and return political thought to the status quo ante (when there was a “Fairness Doctrine”, and they controlled the 3 sole TV news outlets and handful of powerful “Newspapers Of Record”). Some of them even get into […]

Aaaand we’re off: Keynote Talkback

 

What say you all? Some thoughts:

1. Anyone who knew only the image of Mitt as the Robot Boss from the planet Bain IV in the Outsource System would have to admit that he seemed most genuine when talking about his family story. I thought he was going to choke up, and most of the people who hated him ‘cuz he’s, like, rich, would think “Choke up” was something he did to an underperforming underling in a board meeting.

Before all the second guessing starts, let me just say that Rubio’s comments combined with Mitt’s comments were very encouraging to me.  They make me want to be a better American, to work harder, to accomplish more.  I loved the speech, I thought it was great.  Maybe I’m just being…whatever.  But that’s how I feel.

As an interested observer of all the twists and turns in U.S. politics since 2008, and the RNC this week…..There’s just no doubt about it. From my perspective, conservatives across the western (and English speaking world in particular), look with awe and envy at what our ideological brethren in America can do. Preview Open

Ricochet is not just informative.  It is also a forum for witty, succinct, eloquently stated thoughts–all in all, a source of excellent writing, satisfying to read. Lately, I’ve been wishing that we could “like” great lines that we encounter in posts. Here is an example from Ferguson’s post this morning, on lack of evidence for […]

I’m in Colorado right now, which means I got to watch and experience the Republican convention with people who are not political or media professionals or otherwise D.C. insiders. Being here is almost like being in a different country. When Clint Eastwood mocked President Obama last night, the Colorado folks were on the edge of […]
