What is the Club for Growth Thinking?!

It might be an off year in most of the country and here in Indiana, but apparently that doesn’t mean there can’t be a little early blood drawn in potential GOP primaries.  As we have become all too aware in recent years, there is no offseason in elections anymore.  The next round of primaries start […]

Richard Mourdock's Abortion Comments and Joe Donnelly's Sophistry

This week, I pulled double duty on WIBC.  First I made my regular pre-presidential debate visit.  The Presidential debate came and went. Most of us who watched it were probably fighting sleep as it failed to yield the fireworks the previous two Presidential debates and the vice presidential debates did.  But leave it to my […]

It's Not Just One Poll, It's a Trend for Mitt Romney **Update – Romney Leads in FL. & VA.**

Liberals in America are in full on freak out mode after President Obama’s dismal performance last week in the first presidential debate.  Now, I’ll be the first to admit that one debate, especially the first debate, does not make an election.  However, Mitt Romney has successfully changed the narrative after one debate and not just […]

Discussing the Presidential Debate Formats on WIBC

Yesterday afternoon my colleague Jennifer Wagner and I appeared on WIBC (yes, again) this time discussing the different formats of the presidential debates and if there is a certain format that benefits either President Obama or Governor Romney.  We even have a bit of fun with Ed Wenck of Indy’s Afternoon News when he asked […]

Talking Presidential Debate Prep on WIBC

[…]

Interview with Congressman Paul Gosar of Arizona

I had the pleasure of interviewing Republican Congressman Paul Gosar from Arizona on my show this week.  The timing couldn’t have been better to have him on.  Congressman Gosar and I discussed some of the major issues coming out of Washington this week including the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Arizona law known as “SB […]

Nothing Says "Happy Father's Day" Like Right Online in Las Vegas! #RO12

This year’s my celebration of Father’s Day will be like no other.  Actually, it’ll be day spent mostly in recovery and in the air.  But why is that?  Because on June 15th and 16th I’ll be in Las Vegas, Nevada attending the Right Online conference that’s put on by the group American’s For Prosperity.  What […]

ICYMI: Recapping Primary Night Coverage of the #INSEN Race

It was a busy night this past primary.  I was pulling double duty first doing a special “Snark Factor” with Fingers Malloy and FTRradio.com, then heading over to the Fox59 studios to recap what had just taken place, which was a stunning victory by Richard Mourdock against incumbent Senator  Dick Lugar. Lugar’s loss marked the […]

Debating Super Tuesday Results

This past week was Super Tuesday except it wasn’t so super.  Mitt Romney picked up a key, but slim victory in Ohio, but that was tempered by the fact that Rick Santorum failed to get on the ballot in three congressional districts.  Does Santorum win Ohio if he’s on all the ballots?  Newt Gingrich won […]

In Case You Missed It – Debating Romney/Santorum and the Indiana Statewide Smoking Ban

On the latest Fox 59 “Face Off” my Democratic colleague, Jennifer Wagner, and I debated the lingering GOP Presidential primary and what that might mean for Indiana’s May 8th primary.  We also touch on the statewide smoking ban legislation and its chances of passing.
