Understanding The Current Primary

January 31, 2012
By

Read this entire piece by Jeff Lord at 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 party's nominee...

Video: Mitt “Frat Boy” Romney Doesn’t Look Very Presidential

January 30, 2012
By

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...

Hugh Hewitt Trapped By His Own Intellectual Inconsistency On Romney

January 30, 2012
By

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:

This clip...

Why Romney Can’t Seal The Deal In Florida

January 30, 2012
By

The media and non-conservative outlets like NRO are going to try and spin Florida as, this primary is over. It's already beginning.

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. Now, an...

Good Grief, Conservative Bloggers Are Lame

January 30, 2012
By

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 in...

Backlash: Reaganite Fla. Cuban Leader Backs Newt, Blasts Mitt For Distortions

January 30, 2012
By

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...

Based On Ed Morrisey’s View, Obama Wins

January 30, 2012
By

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 stripping it...

Wake Up, Conservatives: Mitt Romney Is Running As A Leftist

January 30, 2012
By

Every once in a while, the dumb ass comes out in Stacy McCain. This is one of those times. He's either doing this as he thinks it benefits Santorum, or he's un-officially signed on with Team Mitt in his mind.

OK, so what’s Mitt’s secret? Let me put it in the simplest...

Mitt Romney’s Lack Of Character Revealed Out Of Desperation

January 29, 2012
By

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...

Conservatives Opposed To Mitt Romney In The General Election

January 28, 2012
By

You'll want to read this entire piece by Bill Jacobson.

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 sure anymore.

That the Romney...

Rich Lowry Was 12 When Reagan Was Elected And It Shows

January 28, 2012
By

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 apparently...

Important Update: The Entire Gingrich Special Order NRO Used To Attack Newt

January 28, 2012
By

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...

Updated: Rich Lowry’s Post On Lord’s Alleged Distortion Down The Memory Hole?

January 27, 2012
By

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’s Defeat And GOP Disaster 1, 2, 3

January 27, 2012
By

Romney can't get angry about ObamaCare because he's the progressive who implemented RomneyCare

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...

Now, NRO, Elliott Abrams Caught Misleading As Part Of Yesterday’s Gingrich Attack

January 27, 2012
By

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 pile on.

These hacks act like new media doesn't exist...

Erick Erickson: Romney Can’t Win

January 27, 2012
By

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...

Romney Denounces Blind Trust As “A Ruse”

January 27, 2012
By

Seriously, there is no issue that you can't find Romney on both sides of. Here he is criticizing precisely what he's using today as an excuse for controversial investments. The man seems to have no integrity at all. Along with everything else, his lack of character will...

Romney Lied About Blind Trust For Fannie, Freddie Investments

January 27, 2012
By

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...

Video – Mitt Romney: Bob Dole Is The Last Guy I’d Want To Write A Letter For Me

January 26, 2012
By

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.

More Incompetence From Mitt: Didn’t Hide Swiss Bank Account In Time

January 26, 2012
By

It's already been reported they wanted to close this account as it might present a political embarrassment. But Romney, who has been running for president basically forever, didn't get it closed in time for him to get away without disclosing it. What was this guy, the face of Bain, while other...
