Only 50 million Americans live in a state run by Democrats

leave a comment »


As you may have heard, Governor Justice of West Virginia just switched parties.   He left the Democrats and joined the GOP.     His decision changes the math just a bit in the national map.

Our friends at Power Line posted this today:   

By tomorrow, 164 million Americans will live in the 26 states that are wholly controlled by Republicans, 109 million will live in states where power is shared between the parties, and only 50 million will live in the six states controlled by the Democrats.

Those who run the Democratic Party spend their time overwhelmingly in Washington, California and New York, and they read the New York Times and the Washington Post. They watch CNN and MSNBC, along with network news. As a result, I am not sure they are fully attuned to how unpopular their party has become in most of America.    

Of course, this could change specially since the GOP will now be accountable for running so many states.    

Nevertheless, it confirms just how awful the Obama years were for his party.    

By any objective standard, Obama was a party-wrecker as 1,000 Democrats from coast to coast can tell you.

August 3, 1923: President Coolidge

leave a comment »

On August 3, 1923, VP Calvin Coolidge became the 30th president of the US.   It followed the passing of President Harding.    He was sworn in by his father, who was a notary public.   Mr. Coolidge learned of President Harding’s death in the middle of the night!

Over time, he’s become a real favorite of conservatives like me.   He was a simple man who understood the limitations of government.    

A few years ago, Amity Shlaes wrote a good book about President Coolidge:
