Gallup: Wyoming, Mississippi and Idaho Most Conservative States in US … District of Columbia, Socialist Republic of Vermont and Taxachusettes Most Liberal
Who are the most RED and least RED states in America?
So who are the most conservative states in the United States? According to Gallup, Wyoming, Mississippi, Idaho, Utah and Montana are at the top of the list. Followed by Arkansas, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Alabama. Hmm, maybe the Volunteer state of Tennessee and those that claim to be conservative can explain how they have voted into office two less than conservative US Senators. Bob Corker is bad enough, but long time Sen. Lamar Alexander ranks rather low with a 53% on the Club for Growth’s scorecard. Tennessee has a chance to put their conservatism where their mouth is and vote in a true conservative candidate in 2014. Alexander is being primary challenged in the GOP primary by TN state Representative Joe Carr. It us time to get rid of establishment Republicans who claim they are conservative.
Also, how in the hell is Montana considered the 5th most conservative state and yet they currently have two Democrat US Sens. Jon Tester and the retiring Max Baucus. If Arkansas actually considers themselves a conservative state, they will replace Democrat Sen. Mark Pryor in 2014. Some of these states that claim they are conservative best stand up and be counted in 2014 and 2016, or forever be a minority.
Imagine that, the District of Columbia is the most liberal place in the United States, followed closely by the Socialist Republic of Vermont and Taxachusettes. Check out the states that are considered most liberal, all of them except Maine have two Democrat Senators and many of which are among the most liberal.

Tea Party Response to Obama’s SOTU from Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) … Calls Obamacare an “Inequality Godzilla.” that Has Robbed Americans of Their Insurance, Doctore, Wages and Jobs
I hate to say we told you so America, but we told you so …
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) provided the Tea Party response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address blamed big Democrat, progressive, liberal government for the problems that Americans face and no greater example of out of control, over-reaching, over-spending and over-stated than the presidents signature piece of legislation, Obamacare. Lee referred to Obamacare as an “Inequality Godzilla, that has robbed working families of their insurance, their doctors, their wages and their jobs.” Kudos to Senator Lee for also placing blame at the hands of establishment Republicans as well for the problems we face as he stated, “they can be just as out-of-touch as the Democratic Establishment.”
“This inequality crisis presents itself in three principal forms,” Lee (R-Utah) said. “Immobility among the poor, who are being trapped in poverty by big-government programs; insecurity in the middle class, where families are struggling just to get ahead, and they can’t seem to get ahead; and cronyist privilege at the top, where political and economic insiders twist the immense power of the federal government to profit at the expense of everyone else.”
“Obamacare – all by itself – is an inequality Godzilla that has robbed working families of their insurance, their doctors, their wages and their jobs,” Lee said. “Many Americans are now seeing why some of us fought so hard to stop this train-wreck over the last four years.”
“I believe we need to do what Americans have always done – come together and press for positive change. Protesting against dysfunctional government is a great American tradition, going back to the original Tea Party in Boston, about 240 years ago,” Lee said. “Americans have a natural instinct to stand up and speak out when they know something is wrong. … Unfortunately, in recent years, we have had no choice but to engage in a number of protests against our current president’s Washington-centered agenda.”
The truth of the matter is that income inequality has risen under Barack Obama.
Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) Will Resign His Seat Effective Today … In Wake of Misdemeanor Possession of Cocaine in November 2013
The Politico is reporting that Rep. Trey Radel (R-FL) will resign from Congress on Monday. Reuters is confirming the story as well, that Republican U.S. Representative Trey Radel, who was charged in November with buying cocaine, plans to resign from Congress, effective Monday.
Sadly, Radel has blown his political career up his nose … Although I guess it would have been acceptable if he was caught smoking pot and Barack Obama had stated that there is no difference between cocaine and alcohol.
The first-term Republican plans to send a letter to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) Monday, sources said.
It’s up to Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott to schedule a special election for Radel’s seat. His southwest Florida district is solidly Republican — Mitt Romney won the district with 61 percent of the vote.
The race for Radel’s seat had begun even before he decided to resign. Republican Paige Kreegel, a former state representative, has already launched a campaign for the 19th district. Kreegel, who finished third to Radel in a 2012 primary, has drawn the support of a super PAC, which has raised $1 million with the intention of helping him win the seat.
As Hot Air opines, “most Republicans wanted him gone after the arrest. Instead, Radel insisted that he would hold his seat after going through rehab. Unless I missed a memo, there hasn’t been any unusual events surrounding his return this month. Perhaps Radel found his welcome back to the caucus chillier than Polar Vortex I or II.” Touche. Let’s hope Obamacare covers drug rehab.
Ann Coulter Responds to MSNBC’s Ed Schultz’ Challenge that Republicans are Afraid of Him with … “Invite Me on Your Show, You Lying P*ssy”
Looks like the ball is now in Ed Schultz’s court …
Following MSNBC’s Ed Schultz’s comment from ‘The Ed Show’ where he said, “Republicans, they’re afraid of me. They don’t want to talk to me,” the never at a loss for words Ann Coulter responded via Twitter with the following … “Invite me on your show, you lying p*ssy”. Well how about them apples? So the real question is whether Schultz will put his will have the CO-JONES to actually invite Ann Coulter on his show and face the intellectual and fiery wrath of one of our favorite conservatives?
The answer is, if MSNBC actually wants some ratings they would do it in a heart beat. However, if they want Ed to be reduced to a puddle of goo, they might think otherwise. However, I would not hold your breathe on this one to happen.
These MSNBC hosts like Rachel and Ed love posing as macho Republican-slayers, with Rachel repeatedly begging Republican senators to please, please, please come on her show (because she’s such a formidable debater, you see), and now Schultz boasting that Republicans are terrified of him! We quake in our boots!
I’ve been begging to come on their shows for years now, but they’re all apparently too afraid of a 99 lb girl. (Or any conservative who can put 2 sentences together — Hey! Somebody get Todd Harris on the line!)
Moreover, I don’t care that they’re all a bunch of pussies at MSNBC, but cut the B.S. posturing when you won’t allow any non-retarded conservative on your airwaves.
Liz Cheney, the daughter of former vice-president Dick Cheney, is dropping out of her Republican Senate bid for Wyoming. Cheny cited family health issues as to the reason why she was discontinuing her run for Senate and her GOP primary challenge to current US Sen. Mike Enzi (R-WY). According to a statement released by Liz Cheney via Politico, “Serious health issues have recently arisen in our family, and under the circumstances, I have decided to discontinue my campaign.”
With Liz Cheney halting her primary challenge, this will all but ensure that 69 year old Mike Enzi will win a fourth term in 2014. Wyoming has been a safe GOP state for years, there is no reason to turn a safe state into a civil war and provide Democrats any ammunition to use it as a proxy vote for gay marriage.
Liz Cheney, whose upstart bid to unseat Wyoming Sen. Mike Enzi sparked a round of warfare in the Republican Party and even within her own family, is dropping out of the Senate primary, she said in a prepared statement Monday morning.
“Serious health issues have recently arisen in our family, and under the circumstances, I have decided to discontinue my campaign,” she said.
Phil and I want to thank the thousands of people in Wyoming and all across the country who have supported my campaign. As a mother and a patriot, I know that the work of defending freedom and protecting liberty must continue for each generation. Though this campaign stops today, my commitment to keep fighting with you and your families for the fundamental values that have made this nation and Wyoming great will never stop.”
More analysis at Hot Air where they discuss that maybe her dropping out is best but ponder what the medial issue could be.
Perhaps it’s just as well. This campaign always seemed a bit ill-considered. Enzi didn’t have a particularly RINO-ish reputation until Cheney decided to go after him; the American Conservative Union (which hosts CPAC in March) rated Enzi at 92.73% for 2012, 89% in 2011, and 96% in 2010. On top of that, questions immediately arose as to Cheney’s connection to Wyoming, where she had lived sparingly at best for the last several years. The sudden exit makes the decision to challenge Enzi even more questionable.
Why “Establishment, RINO” Republicans need to go … Who knew lying was considered a talent to be proud of?
The Hill is reporting that Senator John McCain (AZ-R), says that we should not underestimate Barack Obama and to count a man out of that talent would be a mistake. Just curious Sen. McRino, exactly what talents are you actually referring to? Would it be Obama’s ability to not follow the Constitution, to pass executive orders rather than have the Congress pass laws, to have the talents to force such a disastrous law like Obamacare down the throats of Americans, his masterful skills of backing the Muslim Brotherhood in foreign policy that have the Middle East on fire or would it be his keen ability to put a record number of Americans on food stamps? Would it be Obama’s talent to divide a country, destroy the very foundation that America was built on or the record spending and $17 trillion debt and counting? Maybe it is Obama’s ability to have so many scandals going on in one presidency, that must be his talent. So McRino, which is it?
Obama is not a man of talent, he is a man who is destroying America bit by bit …
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says people shouldn’t underestimate President Obama as he heads into his sixth year in the White House.
He discounted Obama’s low approval ratings and said a sitting president always has influence.
“We all wear thin with the American people after a while,” McCain told the Associated Press.
“To count a man of that talent out at this point in time in his administration would be a huge mistake,” he added.
So let’s understand this, we are witness to a sitting president who’s cornerstone for his election in 2008 and reelection in 2012 has been a lie that Obamacare is going to provide free healthcare to millions of uninsureds, but it would also allow you to keep your healthcare if you liked it, would allow you to keep your doctors if you liked them and reduce healthcare costs. ALL LIES!!! Now we have a RINO like McCain coming out and defending Obama that he is some formidable individual, are you kidding me? This is exactly what is wrong with the gutless establishment GOP. RINO’s think Obama is a “man of talent” rather than a bold face liar!
For the love of God and all things Holy, please, oh please have the GOP 2016 candidate not be a moderate, squishy candidate like McRino and Romney … PLEASE!!!
CNN Poll: Reversal of Fortune … Republicans Lead Democrats in Generic Ballot 49% to 44%, a 13 Point Swing Since October, 2013
Houston Democrats, you have a problem … Obamacare and Barack Obama are toxic.
In a recent CNN poll, the GOP has captured the lead over Democrats in the Generic ballot by a 49% to 44% margin. This is a 13 point swing from poll results just two months ago in October where Dems had a 50% to 42% lead. My how the mighty have fallen and the Obamacare house of cards and lies have fallen. The remarkable turnaround is a direct result of the Obamacare roll-out and the American people learning that all the promises made bt President Obama and Democrats that you could keep your healthcare if you liked it, that you could keep your doctor and healthcare costs would be reduced, were all lies. Worse yet and infuriating We the People, Obama and Democrats knew it in advance. Making matters worse for Democrats if possible, only 22% polled are enthusiastic about the 2014 midterm elections. A low turnout by an exhausted and disappointed Democrat electorate is hardly good news for their chances to win back the House and possibly losing the Senate.
Democrats have lost their advantage and Republicans now have a slight edge in the battle for control of Congress, according to a new national poll.
A CNN/ORC International survey released Thursday also indicates that President Barack Obama may be dragging down Democratic congressional candidates, and that the 2014 midterm elections are shaping up to be a low-turnout event, with only three in 10 registered voters extremely or very enthusiastic about voting next year.
Two months ago, Democrats held a 50%-42% advantage among registered voters in a generic ballot, which asked respondents to choose between a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district without identifying the candidates. That result came after congressional Republicans appeared to overplay their hand in the bitter fight over the federal government shutdown and the debt ceiling.
But the Democratic lead evaporated, and a CNN poll a month ago indicated the GOP holding a 49%-47% lead. The new survey, conducted in mid-December, indicates Republicans with a 49%-44% edge over the Democrats.
According to Powerline, upon learning of the news of the devastating poll what was the first thing that Democrats did … “Within a few hours after the CNN poll came out, the Democrats’ “Rapid Response” team was emailing the party’s faithful, asking for money.” Because it is never about Democrats taking responsibility for poor policy and a rejection of the American people. It is always about smearing the GOP, blaming the GOP and begging for money. Get ready for a nasty, smear-fest from Democrats because they have nothing left to run on.

Subject: some tough news:
We woke up to some tough news this morning:
Washington (CNN) — Democrats have lost their advantage and Republicans now have a slight edge in the battle for control of Congress, according to a new national poll.
John — The latest Republican assault on Obamacare has proven to be dangerously effective. If we don’t respond to Republican smears with the facts right now, the damage to the Affordable Care Act AND our chances in 2014 could be irreversible.
If this trend remains the same heading into the 2014 midterms … it will be utter carnage for Democrats.
President Barack Obama’s presidency in a nutshell … his greatest failure is his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare.
According to a recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama greatest failure of his presidency to date by an overwhelming number of 36% has been Obamacare, followed by not getting along with Congress and working with Republicans (9%), lack of communication (5%), lack of leadership (4%) and so on. When it comes to Obama’s failures, there is so many to chose from. You could have answered the questions of Obama’s failures, the jobless job recovery, the economy, real unemployment, record number of Americans on food stamps, record $17 trillion debt, wasteful spending, investments in green energy, the scandals (IRS-gate, Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate, AP-gate, Fox/Rosen-gate, NSA spy-gate), Middle East Arab Spring, Libya, Egypt, etc.
On the other hand, Republicans (50%) and Democrats (25%) alike are most likely to mention Obamacare as the president’s biggest failure, although Republicans are twice as likely to do so. This suggests that even Democrats recognize the negative issues associated with the new healthcare law and its implementation. Republicans also cite Obama’s lack of communication and lack of leadership as a failure, while Democrats mention his inability to get along with Congress and Republicans, his lack of communication, lack of immigration reform, lack of leadership, and his inability to bring all troops home.
Hey America, did I tell you that you can keep your healthcare if you like it?
I am not quite sure what some of these media outlets like CNN and … are reporting that Obamacare in Barack Obama’s greatest achievement and failure. Take a look at the poll below, “Nothing/None” at 23% is #1 as Obama’s greatest achievement to date, the ACA/Obamacare is second. Honestly, one would have to be hard pressed to name anything that this president has accomplished that would be considered an achievement and benfit for the United States of America.
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) Says on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ …Obama’s Personality Makes It More Difficult For Senators To Work With Him
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) stated this Sunday morning on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ that Barack Obama’s personality makes it more difficult for Senators to work with him. Folks, this is coming from a Democrat Senator can you imagine how the GOP ones feel? Hmm, hasn’t it been the MSM and Democrats saying that the GOP has been inflexible and its those conservatives’ fault? You have a Democrat Senator saying that it is Obama’s personality, one might say driven by a one-way ideology, that is to blame for Senators to work with him.
The President’s failure to build friendships with lawmakers has damaged his chances of finding bipartisan support for legislation, a senator from his own party said Sunday.
“It’s just hard to say no to a friend,” Sen. Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“When you build that relationship and that friendship, you’re looking for ways to try to work things out and find a compromise and, you know, that friendship means an awful lot. When you don’t build those personal relationships, it’s pretty easy for a person to say, well, let me talk about it, you know, and not really make, you know, that extra effort.”
“You know, we all have different styles,” Manchin said. It’s “just not in the president’s nature to pal around,” the conservative Democrat said, adding that Obama doesn’t have a gregarious personality like former President Bill Clinton.
With the partisan gridlock and many senators up for re-election, Manchin, who has called for congressional action on tighter gun laws, said it’s going to be challenging to get such legislation passed next year, though he remains hopeful.

Mavericky RINO Senator John McCain Says Republicans Voting Against Budget Deal Lack ‘Intellectual Integrity’ … Um, President Ronald Reagan Would Disagree
So this is what the Republican party has become in 2013, and this sorry, mavericky RINO was nominated the GOP’s presidential candidate in 2008, ever wonder why you lost?
RINO John McCain (R-AZ) called out Republicans who would dare oppose a bad budget deal that does nothing to reduce the out of control spending and the +$17 trillion debt. McCain said that Republicans who vote against the budget deal lack “intellectual integrity”. Really sir, you may want to look up that definition as you are exactly what is wrong with the GOP and the lack of any integrity to stand for the American people, the catastrophic escalating debt and our hero soldiers. So this is about some gutless GOP Senators worried about a government shutdown, rather than the collapse of the USA with unsustainable spending? A bunch of establishment RINO’s are more concerned on how a shut down will effect them, rather than being statesmen and doing the right thing for the American people? UNREAL … sadly we have become a government of, by and for the
American People establishment government class.
Spending is increased; however, the budget comes at the expense of our heroes, injured veterans who have given of their body and mind to the defense of this nation to have their benefits reduced. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! Civilian workers do not face the same benefit cuts, it is on the backs of our wounded warriors. You should all be ashamed of yourself. So this is what bi-partisanship looks like, agreeing on crap? And a note to the GOP … I am sick of your excuse that you only control the House, these gutless RINO’s would have done the same if they controlled the Senate.
Senate Democrats actually block an amendment to restore veteran benefits by closing illegal immigrant welfare loophole and still these treasonous 12 Republican Senators voted for this rotten bill. So illegal immigrants were just treated better than the men and women who have givens arms, legs, mind body and soul to defend America. That my GOP turncoats would be the definition of a lack of “Intellectual Integrity”. As stated at The Right Wing News, we all know that the Dems prefer illegals to our military vets, but my issue is with the GOP traitors. I expect this kind of crap from the LEFT, I do not expect it from Republicans. And we wonder why establishment Republicans are being primary challenged.
Senate Republicans were unable to stop military pension cuts when Senate Democrats blocked a vote on an amendment to prevent the cuts by closing a welfare loophole for illegal immigrants Tuesday evening.
The two-year budget deal brokered by Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, would cut military pensions by $6 billion over ten years, leaving some Senate Republicans scrambling to stop the cuts.
The US Senate voted 67-33 with
RONALD REGAN WOULD DISAGREE WITH MC RINO. For all of those who have said that Reagan would not agree with the Tea Party, you have no clue. Reagan left the Democrat party, stating, I did not leave the Democrat party, the party left me. Sadly, the Dutch would probably say the same thing today and leave the GOP.
I want you to listen to what Ronald Reagan said during a 1975 interview with Johnny Carson on ‘The Tonight Show” and his brilliance of what he spoke of then, that is even more applicable today. Reagan had it right, government was not the solution, it was the problem. The US, its people, business and the economy would work gang-busters if the government got out of the way. The VIDEO below is a must watch.
“If government would shut the doors and sneak away for about three weeks, we would never miss them” – Ronald Reagan (1975)
Remember when Ronald Reagan responded to Johnny Carson in 1975 on how do you balance the budget? Reagan said, “balance the budget is like protecting your virtue, you just have to learn to say no.” I guess we now know where Nancy Reagan got her idea against drugs to “Just Say No”.
