Weekly National GOP Update

March 10, 2009

Welcome to The Weekly Trunk — The Republican National Committee’s new weekly email update on all the latest news and political happenings. The goal of The Weekly Trunk is to inform and arm you with the facts you need to spread our conservative message and refute the misstatements of the Democrats. This week’s issue features…

President Obama’s Great Wealth Grab
No matter what flowery rhetoric Barack Obama uses to defend his massive tax-and-spend policies, one thing is clear: Everybody in America will pay their share of the enormous price. (Jonah Goldberg, “Waiting Game,”, 3/6/2009)


Republican Committees Working Together to Reclaim Congressional Majorities
The RNC announced last week the contribution of $1 million to both the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee. This donation shows that the RNC is serious about winning back the U.S. House and Senate in 2010. (Reid Wilson, “RNC sinks millions into campaign arms,”, 3/5/09)

Stop the Democrats’ Earmark Bonanza? Forget It Mr. President!
Now that President Obama’s massive “Stimulus” bill, which contained over 8,500 earmarks has passed, he’s talking about restraining pork-barrel spending. But House Democrats will have none of that…(Alex Isenstadt, “Hoyer to W.H.: Hands off our earmarks,” The, 3/3/09)

I’d Get My Investment Advice from Someone Else
By comparing downward movement in the stock market to blips in a political tracking poll, Barack Obama shows his lack of concern for American families’ financial security. With all of the taxes he expects Americans to pay, he might at least take a bit more interest in their rapidly diminishing wealth. (Jeff Zeleny, “Obama: Buying Stocks May Be a ‘Good Deal,”, 3/3/09)

The Obama White House Full of Smoke and Mirrors
Is President Obama really trying to lead us out of the economic crisis, or is he just using it to further the Democrats’ leftist goals? (Charles Krauthammer, “The Great Non Sequitur, The Sleight of Hand Behind Obama’s Agenda,”, 3/6/09)

Good Heavens! UK Not Feeling Very “Special”…
During last year’s campaign, Barack Obama bragged that he would improve America’s image overseas. He’s not off to a very good start with one of our strongest allies. (Iain Martin, “President Barack Obama just plain rude to Britain. Don’t call us in future.”, 3/4/09)

Members of the Liberal Media Find Safe Haven in Government
Not convinced the mainstream media is left-leaning in their political bias? Some members of the Fourth Estate had such a good time acting as Democrat mouthpieces during the campaign, that some are taking jobs in the Obama Administration. The truth is always stranger the fiction. (Michael Calderone, “Dem exclusive? Reporters jump ship,” The, 2/18/09)

RNC Goes On Air In NY-20 Special
The RNC is going all-out to win the special election for the congressional seat in northern New York to be held 3/31/09. This election is the Republican Party’s first opportunity to test our new strategies and build momentum for the state elections this fall. Check out the ad by clicking the link below. Chris Cillizza, “RNC Goes On Air in NY-20 Special,”, 2/17/09)

The Audacity of Being Democrat…

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you couldn’t do before.” — Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel

“Over the next several months, the President will propose a series of legislative and enforcement measures to reduce such U.S. tax evasion and avoidance.” — Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, who recently had to pay $34,000 in back taxes.
