Obama's Gay Marriage Head Fake 5/10/12
Once Gay Americans are through celebrating President Barack Obama's "personal" support of Gay marriage equality, they will learn that Obama's "evolution" changes nothing. Obama's new position is a bullshit cop-out.

Gary Johnson consultant: 'Romney's a stiff and Obama oozes arrogance' 5/8/12

What Will Ron Paul Do? 4/4/12
In 1977 as Treasurer of the National Conservative Political Action Committee, I went to Houston Texas to work in the Special Election campaign of Ron Paul, the first time he was elected to Congress. I have long admired his faith in and consistent support of the US Constitution and the proper limits of government. I have also always admired his willingness to go against the grain and sometimes tell the unpopular truth.

The GOP's Indispensable Man 4/4/12
The New York Times pointed out the presences of longtime GOP ‘wise-man’ and veteran Washington lobbyist, Charlie Black, in presidential nominee presumptive Mitt Romney’s entourage. Black has been a key figure in the campaigns of Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, Bob Dole, George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, and John McCain.

Who's Dressing George Bush? 4/4/12
When former President George H. W. Bush endorsed Mitt Romney in Houston last Thursday, both were sitting in a deep upholstered chairs. Romney was wearing a suit and tie, but the former President was wearing a white turtleneck, sports jacket, baggy chinos, purple athletic socks and faux Gucci loafers. He looked like a guy at an old folks home, a visual that was enhanced by Barbara Bush and her pearls but wearing something likewise dowdy. How very Presidential.

The Real Godfather Speaks 3/22/12
When the history of American Conservatives is written, it should be noted the second most influential man in terms of the Conservative Movement and country after Ronald Reagan, is direct communication wizard and conservative activist Richard A. Viguerie. If William F. Buckley Jr. is the Godfather of the modern Conservative Movement, Richard Viguerie has been it's communications and fundraising spark-plug.

Romney's Act 3/22/12
Romney's attempt to act like "a regular guy" are so goofy they remind me of George H.W. Bush who was born in Milton, MA, and was educated in Greenwich Connecticut, Andover, and Yale, but he wore cowboy boots, chewed pork-rinds and talked about country music.

Rev 3/22/12
I have misjudged Marion G. "Pat" Robertson, Marine Corp Veteran, Minister, and son of Byrd Machine Stalwart, US Senator A. Willis Robertson. As a staffer for Congressmen Jack Kemp's early presidential campaign in 1988, I watched Robertson suck-up oxygen that a conservative would need to have any shot at stopping Vice President George Bush, a relatively weak candidate for President who Newsweek Magazine put on the cover with a story by Howard Fineman on the "Wimp Factor." The piece quoted yours truly.

What Romney's Got Going For Him 3/14/12
Followers of the StoneZone know that this page has been a sometime critic of Former Governor Mitt Romney. New York Times columnist Gail Collins even ripped off our running commentary on the fact that Mitt Romney once actually strapped his dog Seamus to the roof of his car for a 12 hour trip and the dog defecated on the roof of the car out of fright. I posted Romney's stunning FOX interview with Chris Wallace on the StoneZone where Wallace asked Mitt "what were you thinking?" so Collins quoted it a week later. I must admit Collins treatment of the material makes me laugh but Gail, get your own schtick.

Shirley: Drama Of A Brokered Convention 3/10/12
As the Republican Party hurtles toward a possible Animal House-like climax at their confab in Tampa Bay in late August, the national discussion has turned to controversial GOP conventions of the past, most missing the meaning of each and how these ideological food fights sometimes changed the face and future of the party.

Mitt Romney's Primary Weapon - Donald J. Trump 3/7/12
Readers of the StoneZone know that I have not endorsed Mitt Romney on these pages but our readers look to us for analysis of what's happen on the political scene. I've concluded, based on a review of the polling from Super Tuesday primaries , that Donald Trump is Mitt Romney's secret weapon. It is therefore not surprising that Ann Romney gave a shout out to Trump from the podium in Boston last Tuesday night.

Will Wayne Allyn Root Replace Harry Reid In 2016? 3/7/12
Sadly, 2010 saw the re-election of Nevada Senator Harry Reid after Republicans nominated Tea Party favorite Sharon Angle who ran a particularly inept campaign. Last week I met the single best possibility to grab Reid's seat in 2016, Las Vegas entrepreneur, television and radio personality, author and political commentator, Wayne Allyn Root.

Deadlock In Tampa 2/23/12
Could the GOP be facing a deadlock in Tampa? Is it possible no one will have the votes on the first ballot to be nominated? Could the party turn to a compromise candidate like Chris Christie, Mitch Daniels, Jeb Bush or Donald Trump? This week I took a tumbler of vodka, a calculator, a delegate count and a calendar and after two hours I concluded it could happen.

Goodbye, GOP 2/15/12
I registered to vote as a Republican the same day I turned 18. I registered so I could vote for Richard Nixon's re-election in 1972. I was excited to join the party of Lincoln, Eisenhower, and Reagan. For one year before leaving for college I served on the Westchester (NY) Republican County Committee.
