AmSpec. There is mush much wisdom in it. So
much so, it's difficult to pull just one quote. How about what
Gerald Ford thought of Ronald Reagan?
Writes DeFrank of what Ford really
thought: Translation: The thought of Ronald Reagan becoming my
I don't see a president here. I see a very small
man, petty and vindictive after being rocked by losing South
Carolina. Romney hasn't fought anyone on the issues. He dissembles
when they come up. And we all know his vile attacks on the other
candidates began all the way...
I confess, it is somewhat fun watching Romney supporters twist
themselves in knots in an effort to bolster the candidacy of Mitt
Romney. Friend Hugh Hewitt has himself in a bit of a pickle given
two of his columns. That, or he could drop Romney and endorse
Santorum. Writes Hugh:
The media and non-conservative outlets like NRO are going to try
and spin Florida as, this primary is over. It's already
In a typical primary season, that might hold. This is not a typical primary. A month ago
Romney was up huge in Florida. Within days, his numbers collapsed.
John Hawkins of RightWingNews has a poll out of Right-side
bloggers. Contrast these two questions. What does it tell us?
If the least conservative candidate, Romney is also viewed as the
most electable, then these conservative bloggers (I didn't
participate) don't even believe in what they purport to believe
I said early on, I thought it would be a bad idea for Romney to
go where he now has. Not sure how much this tracks in Florida with
the vote tomorrow, but a great many people are extremely angry over
what Romney has been doing and it could still...
The main problem I have with Ed Morrisey's statement here is, there's no room for principle. Romney
can't "out-slug" Newt, or Santorum, or even Ron Paul based upon
principle, so he's resorted to destroying his opponents personally. He's even
used his money to dishonestly claim the Reagan mantle, while
Mitt Romney already had a reputation for piously standing at the
podium, while his political henchmen engaged in a very nasty form
of politics back in 2008. With Romney, one comes away with the
impression that, as long as he can use personal, or political
wealth to distance himself from the...

If you asked me even a couple of weeks ago whether the
Republican Party could heal from the wounds of this election cycle
in time to unite against Obama, I would have said ”Yes.” I’m not so
That the Romney...
That NRO's Rich Lowry would follow up his ignorance and sloppy
incompetence as an editor over the Abrams, Lord dust up with
a childish petulance suggests his temperament
hasn't changed much since he was 12 years old when former President
Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980. Not only did he
Update: While I continue to suggest people read it all and make
up their own minds, I took a part from very early in to highlight
in bold below. Now you tell me, was Newt criticizing Reagan, or
members of the administration? More importantly, why did the editor
of NRO, Rich...
Update: Lowry's NRO post is back up this morning, someone
claimed it was a coding error. I've never seen that at NRO before.
If so, it might suggest Lowry was doing some editing
post-publication and somehow messed up the coding. But not my area,
so who knows. He has, in my...
Romney can't get angry about ObamaCare because he's the progressive who implemented
Moments later, as the discussion over Romneycare and Obamacare
continued, Romney rebuked Santorum, saying, “First of all, it's not
worth getting angry about.”
People think Obama is...
Yesterday, I exposed the bogus C-SPAN video attack on Newt Gingrich
allegedly showing him attacking Reagan. That was manufactured with
creative editing. Today, Jeff Lord at AmSpec teams up with another
source to expose yet another bogus attack on Newt from yesterday's
These hacks act like new media doesn't exist...
I'm often tough on Erick at RedState, so it's only right that I
credit him for saying what needs to be said about Romney.
He will never see the inside of the White House without a guest
pass – and I'm OK with that.
The fix is in for Romney, which just means...
Well, his lips were moving, what should we expect?
Romney lies about everything.
The verdict, part two (were all of Romney's Freddie Mac and
Fannie Mae investments in a blind trust?): False. Some of Romney's
investments in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were outside of his
trust, which means he could have...
Via Taegan Goddard's Political Wire. Bob Dole had written a letter to Rush Limbaugh in support of John McCain. Mitt Romney didn't seem to think very much of Bob Dole back then.
