Tami Jackson Upgrades To Broadcast Radio

Tami Jackson Upgrades To Broadcast Radio

Going to brag about one of our own here. Get over it.  There are more.  We started doing talk on  The405Radio.com in May, 2012 and went on a quest to really expand our roster a few months later.  We sought to get the best undiscovered thought leaders we could find, not defer to the old formula of merely aggregating the[Read More…]

Tea Party Gut Checks No ‘Circular Firing Squad’ (Part 1 of 2)

Tea Party Gut Checks No ‘Circular Firing Squad’ (Part 1 of 2)

The long knives came out for the Tea Party again this week, but not from the usual suspects on the left. Two factions, both ostensibly conservative, came at Tea Party groups who either spent money on ads calling out politicians soft on defunding Obamacare, or got in the face of the Chamber of Commerce, persisting in selling an immigration bill[Read More…]

Scott Brown vets Scott Brown

Scott Brown vets Scott Brown

Scott Brown and Gabriel Gomez were both unrecognizable as Republicans in their respective debates leading up to their mutually losing Senate races. Brown benefitted from lightning striking three times in his first run, competing in the late Ted Kennedy’s open seat, against a horrific campaigner in Martha Coakley, and as the would be 41st vote to halt Obamacare in the[Read More…]

Don’t Be Surprised If Broadcast Stations Dropped By Cable Don’t Come Back

Don’t Be Surprised If Broadcast Stations Dropped By Cable Don’t Come Back

The other legacy media shoe to drop, is cable operators parting company with local broadcast stations. Cloaked behind the acceleration of the demise of legacy print media, the closing of many American daily newspapers, sales and mergers of print magazines, culminating with the sale of the Washington Post to a digital media giant, is the drip-drip-drip of local channels disappearing[Read More…]

Would President Chris Christie Repeal Obamacare?

Would President Chris Christie Repeal Obamacare?

Polls show Christie is the man to beat for Republicans in 2016, and the only Republican who can beat Hillary Clinton.  If it’s not too soon to anoint him as the nominee, it’s not too soon to ask obnoxious questions. Since the courage seems lacking to lay a hand on Obamacare for the foreseeable future,  what’s the end game for[Read More…]

The Other Shutdown: GOP Leadership Since 2006

The Other Shutdown: GOP Leadership Since 2006

Erick Erickson writes in Redstate.com that Senate Republican leadership has flat out capitulated in making Capitol Hill staffers’ Obamacare exemption/subsidies an issue.  The NRSC and DSCC have declared a truce. Evidently Congress is so petrified that their staffs will tender mass resignations they have agreed to mutually back away. The congressional counterparts, the NRCC and DCCC, have not weighed in, but[Read More…]

Sarah Palin And Alaska’s Damaged GOP Brand

Sarah Palin And Alaska’s Damaged GOP Brand

Since Alaskans seem to trust the GOP even less than Sarah Palin does, could it be the perfect venue to reinvent herself as an independent? Sure, Palin is favored by Republicans and easily bubbles to the top of GOP Senate contenders in 2014 in the July Public Policy Polling sampling of Alaskans.  But she struggles in a matchup against incumbent[Read More…]

Reince, Why Working The Refs Won’t Work

Reince, Why Working The Refs Won’t Work

Just when you thought the RNC was about to turn the corner on their abject failure to create a sustainable media presence and message… RNC Chairman Reince Priebus sent letters to the heads of CNN and NBC, demanding they drop their planned docu-puff-pieces on Hillary Clinton. If not, the RNC would yank its debates from their networks. Where do you[Read More…]

Drill, Baby, Drill…Down Into American Psyche, That Is

Drill, Baby, Drill…Down Into American Psyche, That Is

  Peggy Noonan gave props to the new Dan Balz Book, Collision 2012: Obama vs. Romney and the Future of Elections in America, in a spot on assessment of the strengths of the Obama 2012 campaign relative to the thrashing around of Mitt Romney’s failed effort.  Peggy swings and misses…a lot…but hits it out of the park in observing 2008, and[Read More…]

Are ChristieCrats Reagan Democrats?

Are ChristieCrats Reagan Democrats?

Nobody disputes that Republicans in northeast blue states need Democrats to vote for them, and yes, like them. But is this the same dynamic Ronald Reagan leveraged decades ago to effect landslide wins which swept these same blue states? Not really. Ronald Reagan fused populism with conservatism like nobody before him or after him. But make make no mistake, what[Read More…]
