Romney Campaign Adviser Sparks Criticism from Conservatives
Eric Fehrnstrom is killing Mitt Romney. First he called Christians who believe the Bible’s teaching that homosexuality is immoral “voices of intolerance within the party.” Then he coined the now infamous “etch-a-sketch” phrase in referring to his candidate’s penchant to…um…ahem…change positions — frequently. Now Fehrnstrom has stepped in it again by telling NBC’s Chuck Todd that Obamacare isn’t a tax, it’s a penalty, because they didn’t refer to the mandate in Romneycare in Massachusetts as a tax, either. Fehrnstrom’s remarks sparked a backlash from the leader of a national Tea Party group, as well as a Breitbart.com. This is now the third Obama campaign commercial Ferhnstrom has scripted. How does this guy still have a job?
Should Chief Justice John Roberts be Impeached?
Before answering that question, read this piece from Thomas Sowell about Roberts betraying his oath of office, and then this piece from Judge Andrew Napolitano. After reading them both, go ahead and answer the question.
Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss
Redstate.com has a sobering but documented analysis of just how few Republicans in the U.S. Congress are committed Constitutionalists and/or conservatives, and the numbers are frighteningly low. Share this with all your friends, because this is further proof that if the right kind of Republican doesn’t get elected, we’re better off with the Democrats in control so at least we can blame them for all the unconstitutional government we have. The Left’s agenda hurts even worse when it comes from “our guys.”
