  • Romney’s campaign consultants were incompetent, in it for the money

    In too many posts to count, I’ve argued that the reason Romney was the overwhelming choice of the Washington campaign consultant class since the day after McCain lost in 2008 was that he was their dream candidate. He possessed the two qualities most prized by this insular population of political parasites who occupy the D.C. beltway: An enormous amount of money and an equally enormous dearth of core convictions. For this reason, they correctly recognized Romney as someone who could easily be fleeced for a virtually limitless amount of money. He’d shower them with tens of millions of dollars in return for their sage “advice” on...
  • It Is Time to Throw the Social Conservatives Out of the GOP (Not)

    It is time to throw the social conservatives out of the GOP. Look at what they got us — Barack Obama. It was the social conservatives who did it. They insisted the GOP support real marriage and children. To hell with that. I’m getting this, in various forms, from lots of tea party activists. The GOP establishment in Washington is whispering it to each other. They look at Todd Aiken and Richard Mourdock and conclude that they, not Tommy Thompson, Heather Wilson, George Allen, Scott Brown, etc. are the problem. It is time to get rid of the social conservatives.What’s...

    On the streets of Manhattan last week, the American public were more concerned about the delay in restoring their public services after Hurricane Sandy than about the entrails of politics following the presidential elections. New York votes Democrat. It took for granted that Barack Obama would get a second term, and did not look much beyond that.

    On a conference call with House Republicans a day after the party’s electoral battering last week, Speaker John A. Boehner dished out some bitter medicine, and for the first time in the 112th Congress, most members took their dose. Their party lost, badly, Mr. Boehner said, and while Republicans would still control the House and would continue to staunchly oppose tax rate increases as Congress grapples with the impending fiscal battle, they had to avoid the nasty showdowns that marked so much of the last two years. Members on the call, subdued and dark, murmured words of support — even...

    A review of The Case for Polarized Politics: Why America Needs Social Conservatism, by Jeffrey Bell By Ramesh Ponnuru Posted November 5, 2012 Jeffrey Bell, a longtime conservative activist and former president of the Manhattan Institute, has written a book that attempts a novel reinterpretation of American social conservatism and of American exceptionalism. His thesis is that what distinguishes the U.S. from Europe, socially and politically, is the social conservative movement, a claim in which this movement's friends and foes alike may find merit. The distinctive characteristic of this movement, according to Bell, is literal belief in the most-quoted sentence of the...

    Republican Thomas Massie will be sworn in as the next congressman from Northern Kentucky on Nov. 13 and will walk into the middle of the debate over extending tax cuts and whether to allow deep spending cuts to take effect. Massie, in an interview with Pure Politics on Thursday, said he believes its time to see cuts at the levels that will take effect in January unless Congress changes course. The spending reductions were part of a compromise proposal Congress approved in 2011 when it last raised the debt limit. “I think we need to go through with those cuts,...

One candidate had a substantially pro-energy policy which included completing the Keystone pipeline and unshackling promising areas of domestic energy development. The other did not. Taking a line from Bruce Willis for a moment... I hate it when I'm right. The Interior Department on Friday issued a final plan to close 1.6 million acres...

    You might know you’re on The Huffington Post when you find an article headlined “My Son Wore a Dress for Halloween.” The author was Kelly Byrom, an “Art Director for HLN-TV and CNN.” Her son "Twirl" (a pseudonym) knocked on doors as the Disney fairy Silvermist. Like a good liberal, she fears that her son will be pressured to change: "My biggest worry is the same as C.J.'s mom, who so eloquently wrote, "I don't want my boy to want a boy costume." I don't want my son to want a boy costume just because he is afraid to be...

    As China holds its 18th National Congress this week, with the Communist Party preparing for a once-in-a-decade transition of power, the nation looks superficially exultant. Ethnic-minority delegates clad in their cultural garb smile and wave to photographers; pretty girls throng paramilitary policemen in immaculate green suits; red and yellow plastic flowers abound. Meanwhile, in the provinces, chubby-cheeked kindergartners dress up in Red Army uniforms and sing old Communist songs, and university students line up to form the Communist hammer and sickle. All very good photo ops. But China’s blogosphere tells a different story, describing a jittery, paranoid Chinese leadership. The...

    BUCHANAN: IS THE GOP HEADED FOR THE BONEYARD? Patrick J. Buchanan 11/9/2012 After its second defeat at the hands of Barack Obama, under whom unemployment has never been lower than the day George W. Bush left office, the Republican Party has at last awakened to its existential crisis. Eighteen states have voted Democratic in six straight elections. Among the six are four of our most populous: New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California. And Obama has now won two of the three remaining mega-states, Ohio and Florida, twice. Only Texas remains secure — for now. At the presidential level, the Republican...

    A woman jumped to her death as bailiffs approached to evict her from her fourth-floor Spanish apartment for failing to pay the mortgage. It was the second apparent suicide linked to evictions and further highlights the dire conditions many Spaniards find themselves in as the country’s economy sinks. The government recently created a task force to study how to reduce evictions because of the devastating personal impact of repossessions due to tough mortgage rules and growing unease among the public on the subject. The unnamed 53-year-old woman threw herself from her balcony in a suburb of Bilbao, the regional Interior...

Obama, Panetta and Army General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, discussed potential responses to the unfolding events in Benghazi during their meeting, which began 78 minutes after the start of the Libya attack, according to the timeline.

    The Deeper Questions Behind the Ambassador’s Murder … and the CIA Boss’ Sudden Resignation While the GOP is attacking (and Dems defending) the Obama administration in connection with the murder of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, there is a deeper story. Sure, it is stunning that the State Department never requested backup or that people such as Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer allege that President Obama personally watched in real time the attacks as they occurred via video feeds from drones flying over the Benghazi consulate. But these claims only can be assessed – and the whole confusing mess only makes...

He spoke about his own plans in very general terms, sidestepping a question about what's next in his future plans.

    Argentina could face a credit crisis a decade after its $100 billion default due to a U.S. court ruling that says the country must pay creditors, who still hold defaulted bonds, every time it services its restructured debt. About 93 percent of Argentine bondholders agreed to swap their defaulted debt for new issues in 2005 and 2010, but "holdout" creditors who rejected the swaps continue to press in courts worldwide for full repayment on the bonds. Late last month, a federal appeals court in New York ruled that Argentina violated bond provisions to treat all creditors equally when it made...

    You may have seen the National Geographic show "Doomsday Preppers," and wondered if it really is all that common. It turns out; there are preppers all over the nation, including central Wisconsin. And they're more in the spotlight than ever. Superstorm Sandy left much of the East Coast scrambling for power, warmth, gasoline, even food. But preppers say they're ready for disasters - natural or otherwise. Cheryl is one of them.” We’re different because we don't spend our money on gadgets. The newest smart phone and things like that. We put our money into things that we can use and...

    For decades, they have been scanning the skies for signs of alien activity. But having failed to establish any evidence for the existence of extraterrestrial life, Britain’s UFO watchers are reaching the conclusion that the truth might not be out there after all. Enthusiasts admit that a continued failure to provide proof and a decline in the number of “flying saucer” sightings suggests that aliens do not exist after all and could mean the end of “Ufology” – the study of UFOs – within the next decade. Dozens of groups interested in the flying saucers and other unidentified craft have...

    Well, the results are in and everything we predicted came true. Because we ARE patriots we supported YOUR candidate, Mitt Romney. It is shameful the way the TEA PARTY and CONSERVATIVE base was dismissed, ignored and disrespected throughout the year. Ron Paul delegates were shut out of the process and denied their right to cast their votes for their delegate at the convention in Tampa. This was poisonous to our cause. Sarah PALIN was also the most qualified person to lead the party this year and she was shunned. There will be people saying how it was her fault she...

    For more than 40 years, California has led the nation in environmental regulation, from passing the toughest coastal protection laws to America's first rules banning leaded gasoline. Now, this week -- after Hurricane Sandy pushed the issue of climate change back into the national spotlight -- California will become the first state to begin requiring a broad range of businesses to reduce their greenhouse gas pollution. At 10 a.m. Wednesday, the California Air Resources Board is scheduled to hold its first auction to sell pollution allowances under the state's landmark cap-and-trade law. The idea is simple: The state sets an...
