Why Would the GOP Ever Abandon Reagan?

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

reaganI always have to chuckle when my liberal friends tell me that Republicans generally (and conservatives specifically) need to “get over” Ronald Reagan.

Think about how preposterous this notion is.

To begin with, what right do liberals have meddling in the affairs of the opposite party and poking their noses into a movement that is pretty much at odds with everything they embrace? Doesn’t make any sense, does it?

CBS News Poll: Bad News For Dems, Obama

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

PelosiThere’s a new CBS News poll out that has very bad news for President Obama and the Democrats.

But you have to drill all the way down into the poll’s figures to find the bad news.
Apparently, CBS doesn’t want you to find the negative figures but they’re there and they are stark.

Here’s what the poll says:

  • Only 29% of those surveyed think Obama’s policies have made America safer while a whopping 69% say his policies have made us less safe of have had no effect.

How To Know If You May Be A Liberal

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

obama toastIt would seem quite clear — either someone is a liberal or isn’t, right?

In these polarized times, there can’t be that many people on the sidelines. Correct?

And yet, sometimes you may not be sure if someone’s a lefty.

In fact, many people who say they are “independent” or “moderate” actually harbor liberal views and even some people who think of themselves as “conservative” view themselves that way simply because they may prefer traditional (e.g. preppy) style clothing or some-such. So, you may wonder: “Is he (or she) really a liberal?” Or you might even have similar doubts about yourself.

Well, wonder no more.

America’s Security? We Warned You Six Years Ago!

By Dan Cirucci | The Save Jersey Blog

KidsRunningOnBeachX260We are now in a situation where it’s quite clear that we have a president and an administration that are complacent about America’s security.

In fact, on all fronts our security clearly seems threatened.
Russia and Putin are emboldened. The Middle East is in chaos. Isis is on the march and showing no signs of buckling. Militant Islam is stronger than ever, threatening world order at every turn. China and Russia are newly amorous and China is threatening offshore islands and ignoring pleas for democracy from Hong Kong. The Ebola virus has come to America. Millions of illegal immigrants continue to pour into our country as our borders remain porous. The Secret Service can’t seem to protect our own president much less carry out the other aspects of its job. Our privacy and freedoms are under siege from agencies of our own government including the IRS and the NSC. And, our traditional allies are now wary of America and unwilling to commit to new ventures.

Are you surprised? Are you?

We’re not.

How Bridgegate Made Chris Christie Even Stronger

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

So, the Washington Post now says that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is poised to “reclaim” front runner status as we head into the race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

This on the heels of media reports that the US Attorney for New Jersey has thus far found no direct link to Christie in the Bridgegate affair after nine months of investigation.

And that Democrat-led legislative probe of the bridge closure has also gone nowhere even though the Dems are trying to keep it alive.

Polls Auger Well For GOP This November

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Obama in EgyptThe latest polls show President Obama’s approval at a new low – 38%.

That’s the verdict from the respected Gallup poll. And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, the same poll shows that nearly 60% of those surveyed disapprove of the president’s job performance so far.

And there’s more bad news from a just-released NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that shows Obama’s approval rating for foreign policy is at a new low of 30%

The poll also found that 47% believe the country is less safe than it was before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks—up sharply from 28% just one year ago.

And thats not the half of it. Consider the following:

Remembering Joan Rivers: An American Trailblazer

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Joan RiversJoan Rivers started as a phenomenon – a woman standup comic in a business which was almost exclusively male.

Yes, she made fun of herself, like Phyllis Diller. But she did dress outrageously or clownish as Diller often did.

Yes, she was searingly frank, like Totie Fields. But she was much younger than Fields, and more attractive.

Joan Rivers started almost as a curiosity and became a trailblazer and then a legend.

We had the opportunity to see both Phyllis Diller and Totie Fields live and they were both laugh-out-loud funny. They helped to open the door for Joan Rivers but once Rivers got through the door nothing was ever the same again. Joan Rivers invented modern day distaff standup.

Is Summer ‘Over’ On Monday? HELL NO!

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

jersey shore beachRepeat after me:

SUMMER DOES NOT END UNTIL SEPTEMBER 23.

The whole notion that summer begins on Memorial Day and ends on Labor Day is something that was dreamed up by the media and/or the travel industry. And it’s a lie.

Because the calendar (and the seasons themselves) tell a whole different story.

Obama ‘Detached?’ Guess Who Pegged It First…

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Barack ObamaIn the wake of his failure to act or even say very much in response to recent horrific events and considering his frequent vacations and golf outings, everybody’s now talking about how President Obama seems detached, bored, disinterested and certainly disengaged from his job and the nation as a whole.

Even the usually adoring Maureen Dowd of the usually gushing New York Times has now been forced to admit that Obama is, by his own choice “a man alone” and she concludes: The president who was elected because he was a hot commodity is now a wet blanket.”

A hot commodity?

Really?

New Poll: Obama Leading Dems To Defeat

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Obama in GermanyA new, national McClatchy-Marist poll is out and it shows that President Barack Obama is dragging down his party and hurting the prospects of fellow Democrats as they head into midterm elections. Indeed, the potential repercussions of the president’s slide are serious.

Consider the following:

  • Just 40 percent of voters polled approve of the way Obama’s doing his job. This ties his worst mark in three years and the second worst of his presidency.

Remembering Robin Williams, 1951 – 2014

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

robin williamsIt was hard for me to watch Robin Williams whenever he appeared live on TV.

Very hard.

He was so frenetic, so wound up, so quick, so wild, so unpredictable that it made me nervous. And sometimes, it was downright scary.

It was like he had this obvious need for constant attention; a need that was never completely satisfied; a need that could never actually be satisfied.

There was something more going on inside him that propelled all this — something deeper and more troubling, and probably something none of us want to get to know too well.

Obama To Pull Major Stunt Aug. 17 – 19?

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

ObamaPresident Obama is on the ropes.

His poll numbers are in the tank and Democrats are worried.

They’re clearly off their mark as the post Labor Day election season approaches. Indeed, all the signs point to significant gains by Republicans this November.

Now, reports are circulating that Obama has Something Big planned. He’ll be headed back to Washington from Martha’s Vineyard one week from today — Sunday, August 17. He’ll return to his elite vacation retreat on Tuesday, August 19.

That signals a Major Development, possibly announced by the president on Monday, August 18.

Reid/Senate Are Real Obstructionists

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Harry Reid Hell FireThe numbers never lie. Currently, 352 bills that passed the House are awaiting action on Harry Reid’s desk. Of these bills:

- 98% passed with bipartisan support

- Nearly 70% passed with two-thirds support or more

- Over 50% passed with no opposition at all

– And 55 were introduced by Democrats

And still, Harry Reid refuses to bring them up for a vote.
