VIDEO: Olympia Snowe to Retire. Blames Partisanship.

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Maine, Republicans, Video

This interview with the outgoing Republican Senator from Maine is pretty awesome. Take a look. Personally, I’m excited to see what Snowe is planning next. We need more politicians like her to be parting ways with what currently passes for government so we can figure out how we can work together to solve these problems. […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Michigan, Republicans, Romney, Santorum

Mitt may have won the popular vote by 3% (41-38), but this wasn’t a winner take all contest. Delegates are given based on congressional districts and that means both guys got 15 each. Here’s CNN: John Brabender said the campaign’s count proves Santorum and Romney are tied in delegates won, which he said means the […]

Poll: Santorum Holds Slight Lead In Michigan

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Michigan, Polls, Republicans, Santorum

Looks like Santorum may have gotten the last bit of momentum in Michigan. Public Policy Polling has more… PPP’s final poll in Michigan finds Rick Santorum holding on to the smallest of leads with 38% to 37% for Mitt Romney, 14% for Ron Paul, and 9% for Newt Gingrich. It’s always good to be cautious […]

Personal Credit Card Debt Levels Inch Back Up

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Economy, Money

Right before the financial crisis hit, there were reports that Americans were spending about a cent more than they were saving. This was due to many factors, but I definitely think the “pay it later” attitude that our government (and every other government in the first world) has adopted is to blame in some part. […]

Rick Santorum, BA, MBA, JD

By Jacob | Related entries in News

It’s difficult to imagine (for obvious reasons) that Mr. Santorum actually believes the vitriolic nonsense he delivers in the above speech. Nevertheless, this is a fantastic display of Santorum-rhetoric: it fires up the base and revolts moderates and independents. I can’t imagine that a campaign expecting to do well in the general election would encourage […]

Mitt’s Stagecraft Problem Has Media Buzzing

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Michigan, Republicans, Romney

You can look at that picture and understand immediately why the media is laying into Mitt Romney. It fits perfectly with the media’s story that Romney just isn’t exciting the base. Otherwise a lot more people would have turned out. Right? Well, he did turn out over 1,200 people…for a policy speech. Can any other […]

VIDEO: Watch The Arizona Republican Debate

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Republicans, Video

Didn’t catch it last night? Here it is. So the chatter is that Santorum lost it and Romney won. Well, here’s my take. Romney didn’t lose, but he didn’t win either. He was only able to take some cheap shots and make it seem like Santorum lost. But do I think Romney will win Michigan […]

On The CNN Debate: Rick Santorum’s Exit

By The Pajama Pundit | Related entries in Debates, News, Santorum

[credit: AP photo] So, there it is; Rick Santorum is toast. Let me explain why. During last night’s CNN debate, when talking about the No Child Left Behind Act, Santorum cracked this gem: I voted for that. It was against the principles I believed in, but when you’re part of the team, sometimes you take […]
