I Have A Bridge To Sell You In Fort Lee

I Have A Bridge To Sell You In Fort Lee

If you believe the Chris Christie reach-across-the-aisle phenomenon known as ChristieCrats has staying power, or legs beyond his two breakout elections for Governor, I have a bridge to sell you in Fort Lee, New Jersey. What Chris Christie has shed in girth he has made up in becoming a bigger target for larger and more nationally prominent foes in the[Read More…]

Why We Do What We Do

Why We Do What We Do

Since starting The 405 Radio over a year and a half ago, I’ve avoided talking about “us.”   The goal was to introduce original live talk, with an emphasis on up and coming thought leaders.  Stay off the beaten path.  Find the next big thing.  The Not Ready For Primetime Players of right of center talk.  It works.  I’m pleased[Read More…]

Are Wisconsin Subpoenas Of Walker Supporters “Dry Run” For 2014 And 2016 National Elections?

Are Wisconsin Subpoenas Of Walker Supporters “Dry Run” For 2014 And 2016 National Elections?

A politically motivated John Doe probe into Scott Walker campaign operatives in 2010 failed to expose any wrongdoing besides a campaign aide sending emails on government time.  It further failed to bolster Walker’s foes in a subsequent recall election – he won by a bigger margin in the 2012 recall than when first elected two years earlier. But the Democrat[Read More…]

The New “Temperate In My Tone” Wing Of The GOP

The New “Temperate In My Tone” Wing Of The GOP

When Joe Scarborough and Jeb Bush both turn variations on that phrase on the same day, something’s up. Jeb Bush: “You just attacked me by calling me a moderate,” Bush said with mock outrage, before turning more serious. “I am temperate in my tone I hope…” Joe Scarborough: “We were the party that won five out of six elections. And[Read More…]

Five Ways Obama Screwed The Pooch On Single Payer

Five Ways Obama Screwed The Pooch On Single Payer

Many believe the hapless, destructive rollout of Obamacare was a purposeful ploy to use the new law as a Trojan Horse for a single payer system. Government would surreptitiously destroy the health insurance system, then its subjects would beg government to give them an omnipotent replacement, run from Washington.  That looked good on paper, but the horrific and perpetual backfire[Read More…]

The Bipartisan “Fix” For Obamacare Is To Gut Obamacare

The Bipartisan “Fix” For Obamacare Is To Gut Obamacare

Last Friday 39 house Democrats took a gutsy, if symbolic step in the right direction.  They sided with Fred Upton and much of the GOP in congress on a bill that, on the surface, forces Barack Obama to take back one his many whopper lies about Obamacare. Clearly Barack Obama and Democrat leadership don’t give a damn what Fred Upton[Read More…]

Overthinking “The Trap”

Overthinking “The Trap”

Only hours after Barack Obama’s edict that your insurance carrier can opt out of canceling your individual health plan, if they would like to opt out of canceling your individual health plan, he declared, out the other side of his mouth, “We are not going to gut this law.” The notion that Democrats and/or Barack Obama are setting a trap[Read More…]

Post Obamacare: Democrats Can Come For The Ride, But They Have To Sit In The Back

Post Obamacare: Democrats Can Come For The Ride, But They Have To Sit In The Back

The smart set hates spiking the football.  When we win, I want to to tell the world why, so those both in our time and hereafter can learn and build from it. We were right about the scam called Obamacare, and it’s time to make everyone understand that and then lead on repairing the vast damage it has caused. Barack[Read More…]

My Extremely Weak Connection To Edmund Fitzgerald Via Baseball

My Extremely Weak Connection To Edmund Fitzgerald Via Baseball

  My last job in radio before ducking out for almost 30 years was with the Milwaukee Brewers.  I was the broadcast producer in 1984 and 1985.  I worked for the team, with Bob Uecker and Pat Hughes (now with the Chicago Cubs).  Edmund Fitzgerald, Jr., was a team owner and one of the money guys, along with Bud Selig,[Read More…]
