right-wing blogs we like

  • The Reagan Wing
    Hearin lies the real heart of Washington State Republicans. Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

EJ.Dionne Jr. says Scalia should resign. What, and leave us without the most important reason to nominate a rock solid liberal?


Ginsburg should resign, as she is in bad health.

Puget Sound Blathers

Interesting quote from Justice Scalia on Gitmo. Evidently Pres Obama agrees with Gitmo as he has made the deliberate decision to keep it 'open for business' over the past 3.5 years.

What is amazing to me is how the Left doesn't care when President Obama is running Gitmo. But let it be a Republican, then all you hear is how Gitmo manufactures more terrorists, it is a legal stain upon America, etc etc etc. So maybe it was less about the legality of Gitmo and more about the political points one can score. Now THAT is sad.

Just instructive to watch the hypocrisy in action.

Obamacare Upheld with Justice Roberts the swing vote.

Individual Mandate is a tax and not unconstitutional.



Slight correction - The SCOTUS decision said that the Individual Mandate was unconstitutional in terms of the Commerce clause and constitutional in terms of being a tax.

Some would say that this is Bush's fault for nominating John Roberts on the SCOTUS. I'd say now that there is some merit to that statement. Looks like Romney's campaign just became easier.

Or working for the Koch Brothers. Party down Sparky with your Leviathan win !


Not partying here...still too much to be done. I was just admiring your ability to turn this into a positive for Romney. How will he handle tossing mud at a program that was essentially modeled on his own from when he was Governor?


Romney can still defend the MA Health Care plan at the state level and side with the SCOTUS. He could not denounce it during the campaign, but he can cite the differences (60 pages vs. 2700+ pages for one) between MA health care and the Obamacare Leviathan and at the same time denounce the SCOTUS decision.

The individual mandate was claimed not to be a tax, yet the Supremes decided that it was. That is a cowardly act for them, but they have done it before and will do it again. You were disappointed at the Citizens United ruling and I'm disappointed with this.

I am busy here, but life goes on...


Well, cheer up. This is a great day for insurance companies.

I have no illusions about Roberts. This was done to repair their standing with the public.
And just like clockwork, the Koch Brothers announced this morning they are pouring 8 million dollars into ads against health care in a dozen states. Even after the rest of the provisions kick in in 2014, there will always be people out there who will try to overturn it, just like Roe V Wade, 40 years later.


Well, this all puts Rob McKenna on the wrong side. :)


I still think McKenna will win though.
