The Epcot Candelight Processional


As we approach Christmas, one of the Holiest Days of the Christian calendar, I wanted to take a moment to share with you one of the most moving and uplifting presentations I had the pleasure of seeing at the Walt Disney World Resort: The Epcot Candlelight Processional!

Massacre in Newtown Connecticut

While I was away, I was on a total news blackout and only read a couple of social networking sites to see what was going on in the world. A terrible news item came to my attention and that was the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting committed by Adam Lanza.

Tim Scott to fill Jim DeMint's Senate Seat


As you all know, I have been away from my computer in the Most Magical Place on Earth, but I am now back! A lot has happened since I was away. One positive item upon which I wish to touch is the appointment of a new Senator from South Carolina, Tim Scott!

Disney December


I previously predicted it and that prediction will come true, as I'm off the Most Magical Place on Earth this week!!!

The Break

As my readers have noticed, I have taken a bit of a break since the presidential election. The intial shock (which subsided after learning more about the reasons why) of the loss, combined with everything coming to an end, has required me to take a bit of a break. As we make our way though the holiday season, I will soon return on a daily basis. Thank you for your patience, my readers.

Pearl Harbor



On December 7th, we remember the events of today that took place at Pearl Harbor.

Hurricane Sandy: A Documentary

Nearly one month after Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey Shore and the Northeast, I discovered the following documentary that was compiled by Charlotte Nagy, a 16 year old Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School student, who is a Rumson resident and has, her whole life, spent summers at Sea Bright.

Mohammed Morsi: The New Pharaoh?


If I remember correctly, I reminded you all to watch out for the 3rd Government in the Egyptian revolution, as it seems my prediction is coming true. With new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi firmly in power, after his election, he granted himself additional powers, causing many, especially in the judiciary, to criticize this grab and incite the strongest opposition since the Muslim Brotherhood supported party took power.

Lincoln

His personal politics aside, I was very disappointed with the product Steven Speilberg has been putting out there after the 4th Indiana Jones movie and was wondering if he lost his creative edge. Well, after seeing Lincoln over the weekend, I'm glad to see he has it back!

Thanksgiving!


Whether you watched the Macy's Parade (pictured above, the Macy's Holiday Parade at Universal which uses balloons featured in the New York City parade), ate a lot of turkey, spent time with family or watched football, "The 'Right' Solutions" hopes it was a Happy Thanksgiving.

December to be an Exciting Disney Month!


OK, it's been two tough weeks up here in the Northeast...first Sandy and its aftermath, then Obama winning re-election. As a result, I'm quite drained and ready for an escape, and my readers know that a visit to the land of Mickey Mouse may soon be in the cards.

The David Petraeus Resignation: A Theory


Big news out of Washington DC today - retired General David Petraeus, Director of the CIA since April 2011, has resigned his post, citing an extra-marital affair. Considering the track record and behavior of past politicians in Washington and the ability to stay in their jobs, this whole thing seems rather fishy to me.

Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House


Republicans did not have a winning effort this year, but they did hold Congress, and since the election, especially after seeing the current Speaker of the House make some questionable comments, it's time for a new Speaker of the House, and "The 'Right' Solutions" endorses Paul Ryan to hold this position and challenge John Boehner!

Chris Christie, The Election and New Jersey

As Barack Obama won nationally last night, New Jerseyans knew how things were going to go. Except for incumbent Republicans in the House of Representatives winning re-election, it was a whole lot of ugly for the Garden State. Some can trace the cause of this right to good old New Jersey.

Barack Obama Wins Re-Election

I honestly never thought I'd be writing this particular blog, but here it goes: Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney last night and wins re-election.

302-236: Mitt Romney Will Be the 45th President

You've heard it in the title, there's my prediction, there's my electoral college map.

Mitt Romney Comes to Pennsylvania


One of the most troubling parts of being off the grid this long is not being able to provide you with consistent analysis of the election, which just so happens to be tomorrow. As zero hour approaches, both candidates are traveling across the country and my candidate, Mitt Romney, was local, as the Keystone State is in play, so that meant I was going to be there too. Off to Bucks County, Pennsylvania I went.

Hurricane Katrina Sandy Strikes the Northeast


This is the first time I have been able to get online for a significant amount of time since Hurricane Katrina Sandy struck the northeast last Monday, and I would like to thank my readers for sticking by me and following along on Twitter in my blogging absence.

Some Democrat Desperation

Just when you think the Obama campaign and supporters couldn't get any lower, we see them continue to dig for that bottom.

Storm Front Coming: Sandy Bears Down on the Northeast


We've been hearing about it the past week, but it looks like Hurricane Sandy will hit land on the Jersey Shore sometime this evening, somewhere between Atlantic City and Asbury Park. The storm surge is already being felt in New Jersey and all the way up toward New York City!

Benghazi: Two Months Later

Since September 11, 2012, Americans have been trying to understand and unravel what had actually gone on that day the American Consulate in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed.

Kellyanne Conway and Optimism in the Presidential Election


Last night, I had the pleasure of meeting pollster/pundit, Kellyanne Conway, as she was a part of an election panel that I attended in New Jersey. I found one of the historical tie-ins she discussed to be rather interesting and also telling as we approach November 6.

Unsolicited Advice to Mitt Romney's Campaign


Personally, I think Mitt Romney did an excellent job at the debates and while he closed the deal for a lot of Americans, there are many out there who may still be undecided. With 13 days to go, there are four things he can do to add a couple of touchdowns to his vote tally on November 6.

Fact Checking Obama on the Military


Last night, Barack Obama said the following, in a mocking manner, to Mitt Romney.

The Final Debate Analysis

Mitt Romney and Barack Obama met in Boca Raton, FL for their final debate this evening, moderated by Bob Schieffer, focusing on foreign policy. Each candidate, in this debate, had strengths and weaknesses.

Mitt Romney at the Al Smith Dinner

Last night, Mitt Romney was in New York City to speak at the Al Smith dinner. Every four years, the major candidates speak at this event, which benefits Catholic Charities. Over the years, the speeches given at this event have become somewhat similar to what one might hear at a roast. Here is Mitt Romney's:

Nevada, The Next Red State?


Quick recap - so far, I believe Mitt Romney will definitely win 252 electoral votes, with the states of Florida, North Carolina, Indiana, Virginia and New Hampshire. Ohio with 18 electoral votes (and the win) is on the verge of going red, as is Colorado, with 9 electoral votes. Pennsylvania's bounty of 20 electoral votes is has more of a potential to be red than it has in a long time. Another important state is Nevada and after last night, I believe this state is more in play than it had previously been.

Romney-Obama: Second Debate Analysis

The second Presidential Debate just ended and between the format itself, Candy Crowley as the moderator, Mitt Romney's performance and Barack Obama's performance, I have a lot of thoughts on this.

Will 47% Be Mentioned?

For the past two weeks since Obama's debate shellacking, we've been hearing many in the media questioning why Barack Obama did not use the 47% comments against Mitt Romney. They set it up for him, and as a result, they expected Obama to hit the softball out of the park two weeks ago.

Pennsylvania a Romney State?


A few months ago, if someone told me Mitt Romney could win Pennsylvania, I would have said it's a dream and a waste of time. On October 12, 25 days before the election, polling data after the first debate, has shown the Keystone State is more in play than previously thought, with the winner getting an award of 20 electoral votes. 

Biden vs. Ryan: An Analysis

Well, that was quite interesting. Tonight was the Vice-Presidential Debate and after watching it, Paul Ryan showed his intense knowledge and ability to articulate it, however, he was up against a combative Vice President in Joe Biden and an unfair moderator in Martha Raddatz; doing his best against a setting greatly stacked against him.

Stacking the Deck Against Paul Ryan Won't Help

Tomorrow night will be the Vice-Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan. Considering Biden's penchant for gaffes, hypocrisy and stretching the truth, as well as examining how Sarah Palin trounced him four years ago, it is clear that they are working to stack the deck against Paul Ryan and the Republicans.

Random Act of Journalism by Lara Logan

CBS, the (former) home of Dan Rather, the home of the Killian Documents fraud, a member of the "mainstream media" practiced a random act of journalism a couple of weeks ago. Foreign correspondent, Lara Logan, did a very telling story on Afghanistan, which aired on the September 30th edition of 60 Minutes.

Can Romney Win Colorado?


As of October 7th, one month from the election, I predict 252 Electoral Votes for Mitt Romney, consisting of the following states: Florida, North Carolina, Indiana, Virginia and New Hampshire. On the fence is Ohio, but after Romney thumped Obama in Tuesday's debate, we can look at other states; one such, being Colorado.

October Surprise #1: The Jobs Report

Because Barack Obama can't debate and present an agenda for the next four years, he has to relate to attacks and gimmickry. Part of the gimmickry, and I've warned about it before, is the October Surprise. On October 5th, we have the first October surprise: The September Jobs Report.

Big Bird Will Get Bailed Out


In the debate on Wednesday, Mitt Romney said the following about the funding of the Public Broadcasting System.

Joe Biden's Foot in Mouth Disease

Oops, he did it again. Joe Biden puts his foot in his mouth.

The REAL Barack Obama

This afternoon, news about a video with Obama making what some would describe as incendiary comments in a 40 minute speech, started floating on the Internet. On Tuesday night, Sean Hannity played snippets of it on his show. Here is the segment from Tuesday's show.

Happy 30th Birthday Epcot!


October 1st is finally here! Before I touch on the first presidential debate, the unemployment figures to come out on Friday, the question of the fairness and accuracy of the media, as well as any possible October surprises that may occur, this October 1st signifies the birthday of one of my favorite places: (a place I hope to escape to once the election passes) Epcot!

Allen West Won His Race With This Ad

Congressman and retired Lieutenant-Colonel Allen West released an ad tonight that is one of the strongest I've seen all election season.

Bibi at the UN


It is UN week in New York City, which means to regular New Yorkers, lots of traffic and a heavy police presence; both on the ground and in the air. Today at the UN General Assembly was the most awaited speech: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Can Ohio Go Red?

If you've read up on my predictions, so far, I believe that Mitt Romney will pick up four to five states Obama won in 2008. For reviews sake, the definite four are Florida, North Carolina, Indiana and New Hampshire, with a tentative additional pick up in Virginia. If Mitt Romney wins those five states, he will have 252 Electoral Votes. With Ohio, he gets to that magic number of 270 and wins, but many are asking can Mitt Romney win Ohio?

Monica Crowley on Obama


Yesterday evening, I had the pleasure of attending an event in New York City featuring Fox News pundit/radio personality/author Monica Crowley, where she spoke, took questions, met with those gathered and signed her book.

Sunday, September 23, 2012

New Hampshire: Red in 2012

First there was Florida, then North Carolina, then Indiana and possibly Virginia. I now believe there will be a 4th state that Mitt Romney will definitely win, and to some, this might be a surprise, but I predict that New Hampshire goes red on November 2012.

"Inside the Beltway Mentality" Rears its Ugly Face


A few months ago, I wrote of the Beltway Mentality that is ever-present in the Republican Party, and played a large role in the primaries. Well, the past couple of weeks, that Belway Mentality has began to rear its ugly face again.

Obama Campaign Hypocrisy

Just breaking on Twitter and on the Drudge Report, Mitt Romney will likely be under fire for these comments at a fundraiser:

Where the campaign stands and What Happens if Romney Loses

We are about 50 days out from the most important presidential election in US History, and considering how we've seen Barack Obama's foreign policy initiatives imploding, unemployment numbers getting worse, the suffering of another economic downgrade, and the US National Debt continuing to increase, one would think this election is a no-brainer. Apparently, that's not the case.

Could Virginia Be Red in November?


Back in 2008, Obama won Virginia; the first time since 1964 that a Democrat won the Old Dominion. Another election is around the corner and I've always thought it was going to be a challenging state, but more and more everyday, I'm believing it has a great chance of going red again. While I'm not yet willing to guarantee it, like I have with Florida, North Carolina and Indiana, the guarantee could get closer.

George W Bush: Eleven Years Later - "I Can Hear You"

The Pentagon Memorial


On my most recent trip to Washington DC, I had the opportunity to visit the National September 11th Pentagon Memorial, and realizing I had never spoken of it, September 11th, eleven years later is appropriate.

September 11: Eleven Years Later


A couple of weeks ago, I happened to find the above picture of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. This was taken around 1990, aboard the Statue of Liberty ferry, as it traveled between Liberty Island and Liberty State Park in New Jersey. For years, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center stood overlooking the New York Harbor since 1973; examples of American ingenuity and success. By 2001, they were gone.

The Morning After: 8.1%

As the delegates are waking up, having their hangovers hit them, after a night of celebrating as a result of what they perceive to be a winning last night of the DNC, the news hit them square in the face as they await their TSA patdown at CLT: the labor statistics.

Closing Night at the DNC


Mos Eisley (aka the Democrat National Convention) had its final night and we heard from some empty and angry speakers tonight.

Obama: Use His Own Words Against Him

After this evening, the Mos Eisley gang will leave the Cantina and the campaign will truly heat up! I cannot stress enough, to the Romney campaign, to USE THIS PRESIDENT'S WORDS AGAINST HIM!!!

DNC: Day 2


Day 2 of the Democrat National Committee started out a tad crazy. First, the DNC moved the Obama speech from Bank of America Stadium outside, to a smaller indoor venue in the Time Warner Cable Arena. Fact is they could not fill the stadium and this move was made so not to embarrass Obama. End of story. Second, there was the "God" fight on the floor today. Never forget the Democrat Party booed God - this is a video that needs to be played on continuous loop. On to the speeches.

Democrats Boo God

As I alluded to yesterday, the Democrats made some shocking omissions when writing their platform: they chose to leave mention of God out as well as the belief that Jerusalem is not the Israeli capital.

DNC in CLT: Night 1


Tonight was the first night of the Democrat National Convention. Thankfully the Republicans are bracketing, as is the fact that the United States crossed over $16 trillion in debt. No problem for the Democrats, they're going to block it all out. The big speeches tonight were given by San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro and Michelle Obama. Before I get into that speech, I have a little analysis of what the Democrats have been trying to set up at this convention.

Obama Speech Moving Indoors


As he did in 2008, Barack Obama has planned to give his 2012 DNC Acceptance speech outdoors, in the 74,000 seat Bank of America Stadium. There are now some doubts the speech may take place in this venue.

Hoosier State Will Be Red


So far this electoral season, I've predicted two 2008 Obama states to be red: Florida and North Carolina. This one has been in the red column for me for a while, but I'm now getting the time to write about it: Indiana!

Democrats Threatened by a GOP Rising Star

While everyone was focused on the addresses given by Ann Romney and Chris Christie, there were some really good speakers in earlier slots yesterday at the Republican National Convention. One of those that come to mind was the speech by Mayor Mia Love, of Utah, who is running as the Republican in Utah's 6th Congressional District.

Chris Christie and New Jersey Attitude


After Ann Romney's quiet strength, we move to the in your face assertiveness of Chris Christie who gave the Keynote Address at the Republican National Convention.

Ann Romney: Quiet Strength and True Compassion.



In one of the most anticipated addresses at the Republican National Convention, Ann Romney, the wife of Mitt Romney, took the stage at the Tampa Bay Times Forum and blew the crowd away!

Great RNC Moments: Zell Miller


This afternoon, I happened to be channel surfing and as I was going past MSNBC, I noticed Newt Gingrich was on with Chris Matthews, who was broadcasting live from Channelside Bay Plaza in Downtown Tampa. Matthews badgering of Newt and Newt's ability to figuratively slap the big mouth back, reminded me of a great moment in the history of Republican National Conventions: the 2004 Keynote Address of Democrat Senator Zell Miller of Georgia.

RNC Kicks Off in Tampa

Well, the RNC did not listen to me, as they cancelled today's convention kickoff because they were deeply worried about the potential of flooding in St. Petersburg and Clearwater, areas outside of Downtown Tampa where many delegates are staying. If those areas flood, buses cannot get the delegates Downtown to the Tampa Bay Times Forum. It looks like Tampa missed the direct hit from Hurricane Isaac, and as of Tuesday, the show will go on!
