Getting to Know Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Nov 5, 2014, 12:20 AM

$ 1Awalkerprez.jpgGovernor Scott Walker of Wisconsin, a Republican, trounced his Democrat Party opponent, Mary Burke in his re-election bid. So, it's time for conservatives to start talking about a Scott Walker for President campaign. He's effective at fighting Labor Unions and a Tea Party favorite. 

According to the Chicago Tribune, "Republican Governor Scott Walker appears to have won re-election Tuesday night, according to Reuters/Ipsos, prevailing in a tough fight against Democratic challenger Mary Burke. Walker, 47, a conservative Tea Party favorite considered to have presidential aspirations, also survived a recall election in 2012, beating back a labor-backed effort to oust him from the governor’s office."

GOP Establishment Get 'Ready for Leftist Jeb'
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Nov 4, 2014, 11:17 PM

$ 1Amnestyjeb.jpgNow that the Republican Party has retaken control of the Senate, limousine liberal investment bankers, country club Republicans and Tea Party haters, are getting ready to endorse and fund Jeb Bush for President campaign.  

The American Conservative reports that, "I don’t think Bush is likely to be the next Republican nominee for reasons I’ve laid out before, but it’s worth pointing out a few of the more important flaws in Halperin’s “analysis” here. According to fairly recent polling, most Floridians (53%) don’t want Jeb Bush running for president, and in a hypothetical match-up with Clinton he receives just 44% in the state where he was governor for eight years. So it’s not just fantasy to imagine Bush carrying Wisconsin, Iowa, and Ohio, which have all become impossible or very difficult states for Republican presidential candidates. It is also something of a stretch to assume that he could carry his own home state, which is frankly the only reason to consider him for the nomination in the first place."

Sheila Jackson Lee 'Voice of Reason,' Says Houston Chronicle
by Tom McGregor    Mon, Nov 3, 2014, 11:31 PM

$ 1Ajackson.jpgThe Houston Chronicle claims that rabble-rousing U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Tx.) stands tall as the so-called "voice of reason" in the halls of Congress. 

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "Sheila Jackson Lee's reputation for verbosity precedes her, but she has won respect through sheer force of effort because nobody works harder or cares more about helping Houston than she does. The congresswoman, seeking an 11th term representing District 18, is a stout defender of President Obama and has the attention of his staff, which she puts to good use. She told us she "makes sure every one of the president's cabinet members is working for District 18," which includes downtown and the historically black Third, Fourth and Fifth Wards."
