    The Washington Post ^ | 2 Aug 2012 | Rosalind S. Helderman and Paul Kane
    Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin — though derided on the left and recently dismissed by former vice president Dick Cheney as a poor pick in 2008 — is nevertheless proving her enduring power within the Republican Party in the most concrete of ways: She keeps picking winners. Each of five candidates she has endorsed this year who have faced primaries or other campaigns have won, including former Texas solicitor general Ted Cruz, who Tuesday beat the state’s well-connected lieutenant governor for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate. In Palin’s biggest test yet as a kingmaker, she heads Friday to...

    Several Olympic gold-medalists are praising Mitt Romney's handling of the 2002 Winter Olympics in a new ad released on Monday. The ad by the pro-Romney super-PAC Restore Our Future, titled "Olympics," features Olympic gold-medal winners Kristi Yamaguchi, Jimmy Shea and Derek Parra, and is set to air during the 2012 London Olympics. "As an athlete, you're training your whole life for that one moment at the Olympics ... Mitt Romney brought a huge sense of hope," says Yamaguchi in the ad.
  • Crist to back Democrat Nelson in Florida

    08/01/2012 12:12:15 PM PDT · by cotton1706 · 26 replies
    Via the Tampa Bay Times, former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist - widely seen as a potential future candidate for the job, only as a Democrat - is backing Sen. Bill Nelson in his Florida Senate race. Crist will attend a fundraiser with Bill Clinton - who famously tried to get Kendrick Meek to bow out of the three-way U.S. Senate race in 2010 so Crist could win, and caucus with Democrats. It's not exactly hard to see Crist making it formal at some point, if he does run

The issue of abortion is one of the reasons for their decision to endorse Romney, as they explain in a new letter announcing the effort. Catholics for Romney National Co-Chairs and Former U.S. Ambassadors to the Holy See include Frank Shakespeare, Tom Melady, Ray Flynn, Jim Nicholson, Francis Rooney, and Mary Ann Glendon.

    Asked on Friday who he’d prefer to see as Mitt Romney’s running mate, three-time Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich offered an entire roster of would-be veep choices. “Well, I think the people who would do the best job is somebody like either Sen. Rob Portman, Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia, maybe Gov. Bobby Jindal,” he responded. “There are five or six people who each has the ability to be a good president and each of whom will help win the election and each of whom will broadly share the values that the Republican Party...

    WARSAW, POLAND — Fresh from a warm embrace from iconic Polish leader Lech Walesa, Mitt Romney will wrap up a three-country trip overseas Tuesday with a major speech that he hopes will send a message that he's tough and more willing to take a harder line with rogue nations than President Barack Obama is. Romney arrived in Warsaw late Monday after a day in Gdansk, where he enjoyed the most enthusiastic reception of his six-day trip, which was marred by controversies at the first two stops, in London and Jerusalem. He was greeted in Gdansk by crowds that swarmed in...

    The first reason is easy: Barack Obama. It is shocking to think that a Marxist could ever be president of the United States. But it happened. People always ask, “How could those people have sat back while ________________ came to power. That could never happen here.” Well, it did happen here. As a nation, we sat back and let Barack Obama win in 2008, and look at what we got. Granted, John McCain was not much of an alternative. Some people might argue that the reason I don’t like Barack Obama is because he’s black. There’s no truth it. There...

    Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) has endorsed Rep. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) in her Senate bid, a surprising move since the seat could be in play for Republicans this fall. Young praises Hirono for working across the aisle in the lighthearted Web ad, in which he repeatedly jokes about criticizing House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) before hugging Hirono at the end. "While Mazie and I don't see eye to eye on everything, we've done something too many people in Washington refuse to cross the aisle and do: We've worked together," Young said in the ad, and praises Hirono for working with...

    On Monday, Florida Senator Marco Rubio blasted out an email to supporters on behalf of the Reclaim America Pac endorsing Scott Brown and explaining, in no uncertain terms, the myriad reasons why Bay State voters should not elect Elizabeth Warren to the United States Senate in November: Two years ago, I endorsed Scott Brown because I knew he would be a critical vote against expanded government, out-of-control spending, and the President's healthcare takeover. Now Scott Brown is running for reelection against an ultra-liberal backed by extreme big-government special interests. … Scott's opponent is Elizabeth Warren, an extreme liberal who was...
  • Gay Republican Group GOProud Endorsing Romney: Maybe They're 'Just Attracted to His Sons'

    Comedienne Joy Behar made a truly revolting observation Thursday about gay Republican group GOProud's endorsement of Mitt Romney for president. Substitute-hosting for Eliot Spitzer on Al Gore's Current TV, Behar asked her gay guests, "Could it be that the GOProud guys are just attracted to Mitt Romney's sons?" JOY BEHAR, HOST: Do you think Romney will ever get the gay vote? I don't think he’s going to get it any way. HOWARD BRAGMAN, REPUTATION.COM: No, I don’t, unless his sons do a spread in GQ shirtless, and then I think it’ll be fine. BEHAR: Could it be that the GOProud...

    Amber Lee Ettinger, widely known as “Obama Girl” during the 2008 presidential campaign, told The Daily Caller she is “not as excited as I was the last time, that’s for sure.” The model-actress became a nationally known celebrity after starring in the viral YouTube video “Crush on Obama.” “Barack Obama was definitely the first ‘Internet President,’” she said, describing her experiences during the last cycle as “quite a roller coaster ride.” This time, however, Ettinger won’t say if she still supports Obama. “At this point I’m keeping that to myself,” she told TheDC. “If I’m not making videos, I’m not...

If Obama counted on the full support of the American people, then we could normalize relationships--we could have better relations than what we had under President Carter."

Obama has made it clear that the direction for his re-election campaign is to attack Mitt Romney on Bain. Obama camp doubles down on Bain attacks (CBS News) Attempting to drive home the message that Mitt Romney is a corporate executive concerned with the bottom line and not American jobs, the Obama campaign released a new video on Monday attacking Romney and Bain Capital for laying off workers at an Indiana office supply factory.

    Over the last few days, since Romney clinched the GOP nomination for President by going over the 1,144 committed delegates needed with his win in the Texas Primary on Tuesday, May 29, 2012, a number of new endorsements have come in for Romney's bid for the Presidency.

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne, will host a July fund-raiser for Mitt Romney at their home in Jackson Hole, Wyo., according to a save-the-date e-mail from the Romney campaign. The event will help the likely Republican nominee tap any donors to former President George W. Bush who remain on the sidelines, while fueling Democratic efforts to tie Mr. Romney to President Barack Obama‘s predecessor. The July 12 fund-raiser will be a tiered event, giving donors the chance to pay a little extra for the privilege of dining with Mr. Romney and the former vice president. The...
