Some random observations from Monday night’s Tea Party GOP debate in Tampa, Fla. There seemed to be a great deal of shiftiness and doublespeak! And I wonder what the mainstream media think about this: If Ron Paul is unelectable, why are so many of the candidates echoing his positions?
What is it about bee products that pack a powerful antioxidant punch? According to Japanese research study results published in the online journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, propolis — the resin-like mixture that honey bees get from tree buds and sap flows — has healing antioxidant powers that can help protect you from heart disease and cancer.
Huntsman was extremely popular as Governor of Utah, with his approval ratings hitting 90 percent at several points in his Administration, which was noted for its tax reform agenda. Those tax reforms included $110 million in income tax cuts, and a statewide flat income tax rate. His reforms slashed sales and food taxes and provided tax credits aimed at attracting new business development. The Cato Institute ranked Utah top in the nation for tax policy after Huntsman’s reforms kicked in.
Talking to POLITICO in a pre-debate interview last Wednesday, Santorum said he has a consistent record of conservatism. He’s never been a Democrat, even when it would have been easier, and he never was for things while running for office in a liberal State that he’s no longer for now that he’s running for a national seat.
By a whopping margin, GOP insiders prefer Romney over Perry and believe he has a better chance of defeating Obama.

And Republican insiders don’t have a great track record of picking a winner (See Gerald Ford, Bob Dole and John McCain).
Bachmann claims the Tea Party mantle and is the founder of the Tea Party Caucus in the House of Representatives. But while she was prominent at Capitol Hill Tea Party gatherings protesting the Obamacare vote and stimulus spending bills, some things in Bachmann’s background and some of her votes indicate she is not the conservative she tries to portray.
While Cain’s tough-sounding talk and performances in debates have garnered him some attention, he continues to lag in most polls. Maybe that’s because smart conservatives recognize a RINO when they see one.
Labor Day is traditionally considered the beginning of election season, so I thought now would be a good time to present an analysis of the announced candidates — at least those with something of a shot at winning the nomination.
If you look up the definition of crony capitalist, you’re sure to find Rick Perry’s photograph. He is a master at political patronage, and the practice has pumped millions of dollars into his campaign coffers.
