U.S. vice presidents don’t get a lot of respect—that can sometimes work for a vice president prone to gaffes. Joe Biden comes to mind. Times do change and a recent message from Sen. Jim DeMint (S.C.) to supporters of his Senate Conservatives Fund suggests the General Election of 2012 may change the tenor of the VP office.
DeMint invited donors to support the conservative candidates endorsed by the fund he started, and he also included a link to a poll listing potential running mates for the GOP nominee. DeMint also pointed out something not many Americans have probably thought about.
As protesters filled the streets of Egypt, media and everyone else on the Left fawned on that event and others like it in countries in the Middle East. The term ‘Arab Spring’ became commonplace.
Some on the left even began to hint that perhaps President George W. Bush’s decision on Iraq was the stimulus for the general awakening of people in countries ruled by tyrants.
Legacy media praised the rebels in countries where uprisings occurred. Few praised the American activists.
Ahead of the 2010 midterm elections, no one in Congress was more frustrated than Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), and it wasn’t just because his Republicans had been stripped of all power. DeMint recounts the experiences of a conservative in a progressive-controlled government in his new book ‘The Great American Awakening.’
With Democrats in full control of both the legislative and executive branches, spending zoomed to new heights, setting world records for debt.
Adrenalin on Friday, ahead of Gov. Rick Perry's announcement
On Friday Erick Erickson welcomed everyone. He introduced Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and Governor Rick Scott (R-Fla.) The crowd made their approval clear, with one message resonating: Beat Obama in 2012.
Rep. Scott talked about telling Obama to “hit the road, Jack" and conservative values. A very articulate man who connects easily with others, Scott is a rising star in the GOP.
When I heard Sen. John McCain call the balanced budget amendment a fantasy and tea partiers “hobbits,” I wasn’t really surprised. For McCain, the disastrous campaign of 2008 is now a distant memory. McCain has returned to being the real McCain, courting media approval and projecting himself as a bipartisan compromiser.
First the US Dept. of Health and Education handed out waivers to organizations and corporations that realized the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was a legislative nightmare. That happens when your congressman doesn’t read the bill he signs.
Now the US Dept. of Education is handing out waivers. Those waivers wouldn’t be necessary had Democrats agreed to an amendment offered by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC).
