The sports media has been in a tizzy covering the scandal known as “deflate gate.” After it was discovered that 11 of the 12 footballs used by the New England Patriots in their playoff game against the Colts were deflated, the media speculation has been intense about whether the Patriots purposely altered the footballs in an attempt to gain an advantage. Their coach, Bill Belichick, and the team's quarterback, Tom Brady, have been peppered with questions. While they both have denied responsibility, the NFL and media investigation is continuing.
After six difficult years under Barack Obama, the country is ready for a change in the White House. The President has delivered a continual dose of no compromise liberalism that has divided the races and polarized the political climate.
Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s announcement today that he will “actively explore” the presidency marks the start of an 18 month battle for control of the Republican Party.
As so many of us so well know, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is single-focused: The White House. In advance of what many believe to be his opening statement in his “official” presidential-run announcement, he is bringing in scores of religious leaders to the LSU for prayer.
More, Louisiana US Senate race analysis and talk--WGSO's Jeff Crouere and Bayoubuzz's Stephen Sabludowsky--continued the debate following this weekend's election in which Republican candidate Bill Cassidy ousted Democrat incumbent Mary Landrieu.
As Louisiana Democrats find themselves sliding into political oblivion, they find on offer two strategies to become meaningful again at the statewide level: adapt to the median voter’s issue preference, or to rely on subterfuge. Early indications are their hardheaded leaders will rely on the latter.
Let us give Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory credit.
According to a press release, he was instrumental in overturning an election in Turkey Creek Louisiana due to voter fraud. No doubt, we should thank him and others who believe it is necessary to remove the cancer any fraudulent, coercive or unfair behavior from our elective process.
If the polls are right, Louisiana voters are on the verge of throwing long time politician U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) a retirement party on December 6. Her opponent Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-Baton Rouge) is comfortably ahead as the run-off draws to a close and has been continually blasting the incumbent as a clone of the unpopular President Barack Obama.
The President cannot be any more provocative with the GOP. After getting shellacked in the mid-terms, Obama did not move to the middle or reach out to Republicans, he moved further to the political left.
