    After six solid months of Republican after Republican attacking Donald Trump—and Trump nailing them back—some Republicans, especially Rubio supporters, continue to blame Ted Cruz for losing their support because he won’t attack Trump.Leon Wolf of RedState made the most honest case for why his ire continues to be raised for Cruz in “Ted Cruz Has a Problem.”Wolf, an obvious Rubio supporter, can’t get over the fact that Cruz won’t attack Trump like Wolf believes Cruz is attacking Rubio.“It’s not just that Cruz disagreed with Rubio. It’s that his disagreement was laced with biting sarcasm and personal attacks,” said Wolf.“Whatever you...

    Politico ^ | Aug 10, 2015 | By KATIE GLUECK
    He says that it is dangerous to dismiss a candidate with this type of drawing power. FRANKLIN, Tenn. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday warned that the Republican presidential candidates who are slamming Donald Trump do so at their political peril. Cruzs remarks, which came during an interview with POLITICO as he swings through the South on a bus tour, are among the most detailed comments to date regarding his reluctance to criticize the real estate mogul, who is currently leading the polls in the GOP primary. I would note that an awful lot of Republicans, including other...

    Elder Sen. John McCain, who this week engaged in friendly fire when he launched his "maverick" missiles at fellow Republicans seeking clarification on the administration's drone policies, has upped the ante, deriding Tea Party-backed GOP lawmakers as "wacko birds."
  • Romney campaign tries to trip up Newt Gingrich before the do-or-die South Carolina primary

    Mitt Romneys campaign unleashed a multi-pronged attack against Newt Gingrich Wednesday a sign the GOP front-runner could be worried about a surge from the ex-Speaker prior to South Carolinas primary on Saturday. Romney rolled out a pair of new attack ads and dispatched two of his top surrogates to blast Gingrichs erratic temperament just days before the make-or-break southern contest. Hes not reliable, former Missouri Senator Jim Talent slammed on a media conference call. Yes, he can say exciting things he also says things that undermine the conservative movement. That theme was reminiscent of the line of attack...

    Ok, I have to rant. There are some Freepers who seem to really, really hate certain candidates. A majority of their post are saying sometimes nasty and mean things about that candidate. This is so typical of whats wrong with Republicans and Conservatives in general. We will eat our own candidates and pull defeat from the jaws of victory. I see the same thing in Religion, which explains why there are dozens of Christian churches within miles of my house each claiming to be the "correct" way to God. I am in Texas. I like Perry but he has made...

    Rick Perry Report ^ | Oct 29, 2011 | Joe Hyde
    1. Cain Ignorant on Arab "Right to Return" Propaganda That's Really Meant to Destroy Israel Herman Cain was on Fox News Sunday in May. When Chris Wallace asked about the Arab propaganda movement to give Palestinians the "Right to Return," Herman Cain indicated that he was ignorant of the propaganda intricacies of that policy. The entire duration of the Barack Obama administration has been openly hostile towards Israel. There is some indication that the 2012 election will not repair this travesty if Herman Cain is the Republican nominee. He's not smart enough on the issue to turn things around....
  • Greta Interview with Palin and Bachman: Disgusting innuendo about Perry

    I saw the GOP debate and the Greta interview with Palin and Bachman. I am absolutely against Perry's mandate of the Gardasil vaccine. On policy grounds. Period. But, to see the two ladies pile on with corruption charges against Perry was truly disgusting. If they have any proof that Perry mandated the vaccine to profit Merck, I am the first one who wants it. And, if proof emerges that he did so, I will be the first one to revoke my support for him. It happens in the industry all the time. Acquaintances get you an audience. So, in this...
  • Does Michele Bachmann 'Walk the Talk?'

    It’s common these days to hear media talking heads refer to Michele Bachmann as the “Tea Party favorite” in the upcoming 2012 GOP primary race. Unlike Governor Palin who has always stated that the Tea Party doesn’t need one specific leader, Bachmann has tried to cast herself into such a role. She created a “Tea Party Caucus” in congress and gave the “Tea Party response” following Obama’s State of the Union Address last January. The Tea Party is comprised mainly of independent-minded small government activists who are sick and tired of the way Washington is operating. These are people who...

    They stood up there on the stage, shoulder to shoulder, and voiced their opinions freely, often disagreeing with each other over the various details, but they did it like the gentlemen and lady that they are; attacking positions on the issues without attacking each other. My dad, Ronald Reagan, would have been proud to see them strictly observe his 11th Commandment -- that Republicans shall not ever speak ill of their fellow Republicans. They did not go after each other but kept their eyes on the target, Barak Obama, the architect of this double-dip recession he has inflicted on the...

    "Bristol," "Willow" and "Piper" failed to crack the top 100 baby names for 2010, but Sarah Palin and her daughters were the drivers for one of the hottest naming trends of the year, reports the BabyCenter website. While the name Sarah itself is in decline, Palin's daughters' names - Bristol, Willow, and Piper - are moving on up. Bristol enjoyed an 18 percent rise to 532, Willow is now at 245 (a 16 percent gain from last year) and Piper missed cracking the top 100 by just one point....

    Editor's note: Ed Rollins, a senior political contributor for CNN, is senior presidential fellow at the Kalikow Center for the Study of the American Presidency at Hofstra University. He is a principal with the Dilenschneider Group, a global public relations firm. He was White House political director for President Ronald Reagan and chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. (CNN) -- The first date is over. Not much happened. President Obama and his new governing partners, the House and Senate Republicans, met at the White House along with the Democratic leaders and discussed the unsolvable issues between them. Even though...

    Some of the most vicious criticisms of Conservatives who stay true to form on the issues that define a true Conservative quite often come from Republicans who tend to be liberal on Social Issues. When it happens as it does quite often in Massachusetts Republican circles, it brings back memories of the venomous and personal attacks that were cast at George W Bush and his supporters by John McCain and his campaign who fell off the bandwagon in the area of Social Conservatism.

    Alaska's lipstick-wearing pit-bull is a "Little Shop of Horrors." That's how one longtime friend and campaign trail companion of John McCain, the vanquished 2008 GOP presidential nominee, described veep nominee Sarah Palin. In an expansive story in the August edition of Vanity Fair, a slew of senior members of McCain's campaign team told reporter Todd S. Purdum that they suffer a kind of survivor's guilt following the 2008 presidential election.

    POLITICO ^ | Apr 16, 2009 | Andy Barr
    Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) suggested Thursday that former Vice President Dick Cheney should tone down his criticism of President Barack Obama. Cheney has repeatedly criticized the presidents national security policy, saying recently on CNNs State of the Union that Obamas decisions raise the risk to the American people of another attack. Asked to respond to Cheneys remark during an interview ABCs Good Morning America, Jindal said: I don't think we should question President Obama's patriotism or his intentions. I think Democrat or Republican, we should all agree that our current president, our former president would obviously want to do everything...

    Attacks on Gov. Sarah Palin by McCain campaign staff at first appear to be a case of making her a convenient scapegoat, but the attacks have a more devious motive. This post-election barrage is the first volley of the campaign to choose the Republican nominee in 2012. The Washington, D.C. based establishment that rules the GOP wants her career over now. She threatens them. Firefighting 101 teaches it is easier to stomp out a wildfire when it is small. Dont allow the fire to grow, spread and become an inferno. Sarah Palin was the spark of McCains reform campaign. She...

    Pawlenty in Miami was publicly angry, agitated, and even cranky, possibly because he found himself at odds with the far more conservative tone of every other speaker here. Hundreds of RGA members, who paid thousands of dollars to attend this Conference, wildly applauded red meat conservative pronouncements by speakers and not the more moderate and conservative-jabbing words by Pawlenty. And then theres his Palin problem, real or imagined, that hit the fan yesterday in front of the national media, possibly upon the insistence of Pawlenty himself, as the above-reported comments to CNN by an anonymous presidential aspirant indicate.

    To my fellow bloggers: The next time you get an e-mail from someone saying its time to organize a conservative netroots, bear in mind that its these morons, by and large, whom that person wants you to support. The same people who couldnt muster a judgment on the bailout independent of Nancy Pelosi being a big meanie, the same people who cant organize a press conference without having it descend into backbiting and recriminations. Some Republican governors tell CNN they were not particularly happy with the way the Republican Governors Association press conference was executed Thursday, saying that they agreed...

    Newsweek reports that "the day of the third debate, Palin refused to go onstage with New Hampshire GOP Sen. John Sununu and Jeb Bradley, a New Hampshire congressman running for the Senate, because they were pro-choice and because Bradley opposed drilling in Alaska. The McCain campaign ordered her onstage at the next campaign stop, but she refused to acknowledge the two Republican candidates standing behind her." Oh, really? First, John Sununu has a %100 pro-life rating from the National Right to Life Committee. Second, Jeb Bradley was not running for the U.S. Senate, he was running to represent NH's First...
