Hi, i received my first piece of hate mail on my car window while was in Pittsburgh at a mall. I am assuming that it was because of my republican stickers and my tea party stickers attached to my car bumper. Has anyone had to deal with this yet? The hate mail told me told me I was racist against black people and Obama. I didn't know that not agreeing with the government made me racist.

Ohio gubernatorial candidate John Kasich just took the stage at today's summit to a standing ovation from fired up Republicans from Ohio and elsewhere in the region. He followed former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, who spoke to the attendees about the importance of believing in themselves and stood as an example that women can do anything in our Party.
Former Representative Kasich is speaking about the importance of making sure that we hand down an America to our children… Continue

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) just finished up her address at the RNC Regional Women's Summit in Columbus. She gave an inspiring talk about the gains the Republican Party has made nationally and the opportunity our party has to change the balance of power in 2010.
Senator Murkowski also gave an update on the status of health care reform legislation. The simple fact is that the voters don't trust Washington to fundamentally take over such a large segment of our national economy.… Continue

A panel discussion is underway featuring Ohio U.S. Senate candidate Rob Portman, Ohio GOP State Chairman Kevin DeWine and several other statewide GOP candidates in Ohio. The focus of the panel is on empowering the grassroots to win elections. Elections are won in Ohio just as they are all over the country - with friends and neighbors going door to door and making the phone calls that are necessary to win.
Earlier, RNC Political Director Gentry Collins presented data to the summit… Continue

With the White House's health care summit at it's halfway point, the meeting looks more like a bait and switch trick on a used car lot than a negotiation over how to make health care more accessible and affordable.
The White House and congressional Democrats lured Republicans to the table with the promise that conservative reforms to health care would be considered. But as the date of the summit neared, the White House made clear that the only bill up for discussion would be the… Continue

The White House will convene a “bipartisan summit” on health care tomorrow with Republican leaders and Congressional Democrats. Unfortunately, this summit will be held on the Democrats’ playing field and will be conducted under their terms.
Instead of starting from the beginning with Republican cooperation, President Obama decided to double down on the previous failed health care bills. His proposal released this week was,… Continue

Yesterday I made the trip to Jefferson City, MO to place my name on the ballot. I am now officially running for US Representative in the 1st Congressional District of Missouri. My districts boundaries changed after the last census and many people who were moved to the first district were upset about the change in their representative and just stopped voting. This is the year that we will strive to turn that around. My district has been "represented" by the Clay family for the last 41 years and… Continue

This summit will be held in Columbus, OH at the Hyatt on Capitol Square.
We have a dynamic agenda set for our participants. We are honored to have scheduled speakers including Senator Lisa Murkowski, former White House Press Secretary… Continue

With elections in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts, the voters of America sent an unmistakable message to the Obama Administration about the proposed takeover of health care. Today, the White House has given their response to that message sent by the people: Return to Sender.
Ahead of a PR stunt billed as a bipartisan summit, the Obama White House today released their new plan to take over 1/6th of our nation's economy. Unfortunately, the only thing new about the plan is the… Continue

Yesterday marked the one year anniversary of the signing into law of the $862 billion dollar “stimulus” package.
Never one to miss an opportunity to trumpet increased government spending, President Obama sent cabinet members, White House officials and party operatives yesterday into every corner of the country to tout the jobs that were supposedly “created or saved” by the stimulus bill.
There are only about 3.3 million problems with that storyline pushed by the White… Continue

A lesson that the Obama Administration and their
allies in Congress have apparently never learned is that the first thing to be
done when you're in a hole is stop digging.
Now, new polling shows that 57 percent of Americans believe Congress should
scrap the Democrats' health reform bill and start over. The PR hole the
Democrats have dug themselves is getting… Continue

I have two great women friends that are running for local public offices. Goes without saying they are both Republicans! Cynthia Jackson, field rep. for former US Congressman David Davis is a candidate for Mayor in Hawkins County, TN. Joni Cannon is a candidate for County Commissioner in Carter County, TN. I am really excited about this. I remember listening at the NRC Women's Summit to the many speakers urging women to run for office. But as you know, all campaigns need… Continue

Last May, House Republicans asked the White House to hold bipartisan discussions on health care to find a way to reduce the number of uninsured and bring federal health spending under control.
The White House declined and instead chose to write a massive health care bill in secret that is filled with political payoffs and is roundly rejected by the American people.
Obama has invited Republicans to a so-called “bipartisan health care summit” two weeks from now. House… Continue

The Obama White House has trotted out its road show following the State of the Union address and the release of the president’s budget proposal this week to sell its plan to spur job growth. But in their haste to show that they are now focused on jobs after spending a year pushing a failed health care bill, they have missed the fact that the GOP has already offered a common sense, budget neutral jobs plan.

It seems that every week brings new data showing unemployment rising across almost every sector of the economy. Except for the federal government, of course.
Buried in the president’s budget proposal released this week are figures
showing that the government will grow to include over 2.15 million jobs this year – more than in any year in the nation’s history. This is up from… Continue
