    The weekend is over and Mitt Romney's announcement of Paul Ryan as his Vice-President has rocked the world of presidential politics, possibly in ways that none of us imagine. Since Saturday morning, when the announcement was made, I have read countless news articles and blog posts about Paul Ryan. I was already familiar with him, but am even more so now. The articles and posts I have read contained a wide range of opinions and details about Paul Ryan. Many of them say the choice of Paul Ryan was a bold move by Mitt Romney, for better or for worse....
  • CBS Still Claiming Obama's 'You Didn't Build That' Was About Infrastructure

    Incredible. CBS News has an anti-Romney "fact check" article up this morning supposedly debunking statements made by Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan during yesterday's introduction of the veep pick. At the end, CBS actually snuck in the hyper-partisan, DNC-talking-point assertion that it was "clear" that when President Obama utttered his infamous "you didn't build that," he was talking about "teachers and infrastructure." CBS claims that in criticizing "you didn't build that," Republicans "seized on only part of Obama's quote." In fact, it is CBS itself that edited out another, most telling, part of Obama's comments. The network omitted the following...

    After the massacre in Tucson that saw six murdered and U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., and 12 others wounded, President Obama gave a speech at the memorial where he called for raising the tone in politics. To honor the memory of those killed and wounded the president said: The loss of these wonderful people should make every one of us strive to be better in our private lives -- to be better friends and neighbors, co-workers and parents. And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let's remember...

    Speaking before a packed crowd on the USS Wisconsin in Norfolk, Virginia today, Rep. Paul Ryan proudly accepted his invitation to be Mitt Romney’s vice presidential nominee and running mate. The location of the announcement was picked based on Norfolk’s long history of defending freedom. The theme of the announcement was focused heavily on protecting and restoring the American Dream. “It’s an honor to announce my running mate and the next [vice] president of the United States, Paul Ryan,” Romney said in front of a roaring crowd waving American flags. Romney introduced Ryan as a man of character and principle,...

    Today would be Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's 42nd birthday. Terry was shot in killed in the Arizona desert on December 15, 2010. Two guns left at his murder scene traced back to Operation Fast and Furious. More than two years later, the family still doesn't have many answers and the Department of Justice coverup of the operation is worse than ever. But despite this fact, just search for justice and closure is ongoing. Brian Terry will never be forgotten. Statement from the Terry family: While Brian Terry’s family marks his birthday, they continue to press for answers in the...

    The SuperPAC supporting Barack Obama, PrioritiesUSA Action, has produced an ad showing a man who claims is wife died of cancer because the steel plant at which he worked was closed by Mitt Romney. When he lost his job, Joe Soptic says, he lost his health insurance. "A short time later," he says, his wife got sick, but didn't tell him because they didn't have insurance. By the time he took her to the hospital she was diagnosed with cancer from which she died about two weeks later. The story is true in its facts, but it is a total...

    Those who understand that America is now on the wrong track cannot reasonably vote for Obama in November, because he is absolutely unwilling to change, perhaps even ideologically incapable of changing, course. Evidence abounds. First, consider his disastrous economic record and his rejection of any semblance of a course change. He and his economic advisers told us his stimulus would keep unemployment below 8 percent. It didn't. He didn't consider for a second that his policies exacerbated the economic crisis. He blamed Bush and said that if anything, he -- Obama -- hadn't spent enough. He demanded more stimulus packages...

    Bailouts for everyone! That's the latest push coming from President Barack Obama's lips. During a campaign event in Colorado today, Obama touted his "successful" bailout of the auto industry.  President Obama, while villifying Mitt Romney for opposing the auto industry bailout, bragged about the success of his decision to provide government assistance and said he now wants to see every manufacturing industry come roaring back. “I said, I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry, and now the American auto industry has come roaring back,” he said. “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing...

    To call Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a "mad dog," as Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank did, is an affront to the canine community and those suffering from legitimate mental illness. Reid was completely sane when he spread hearsay about an anonymous Bain Capital investor who allegedly told him Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. Doesn't Reid, a Mormon like Romney, subscribe to the prohibition in the Ninth Commandment: "Thou shall not bear false witness"? He appears to pay no political price because he's a Democrat and unlike Joe McCarthy, to whom some are comparing him, no prominent...

    ARE AMERICANS EAGER for higher taxes on the affluent? Barack Obama and his allies clearly think so. The president who came to office vowing to "spread the wealth around" by raising taxes on individuals with incomes above $200,000 is doubling down, making a tax hike on the rich the centerpiece of his campaign for reelection. "We should ask the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more," he urged a White House audience last week.

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently said of the Chick-fil-A fast-food franchise that "Chick-fil-A's values are not Chicago's values." Why? Because Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy is on record as being opposed to gay marriage -- as is close to half the U.S. population, according to polls. The mayors of Boston and San Francisco also suggested that the company isn't welcome in their cities. Oddly, none of these public officials have lectured President Obama to keep clear of their cities. Yet until recently, Obama was likewise on record as opposing gay marriage. Why the exemption? Nor have the mayors in question disinvited...

    Try to define progressivism . In fact, ask progressives to try to define progressivism . All we really know is that they’re, well, progressing. They and their ideas and their politics are always changing, evolving. This means that what they believe and hold fast and dear today may not be what they believe and hold fast and dear tomorrow, or decades or a century from now. For instance, when progressive heroine Margaret Sanger started her American Birth Control League a century ago, she was seeking birth control for, among other purposes, what she and fellow progressives termed “race improvement.” She...

    Feigning indignity, outrage and remorse, the Obama Administration quietly watched from the sidelines as a Hezbollah commander, guilty of planning the murder of five U.S. Marines, was set free on July 30th by the Iraqi central criminal court. In January of 2007, a dozen or more terrorists dressed in U.S. uniforms opened fire on a military camp in Karbala, just south of Baghdad. One soldier died at the scene and four others were kidnapped, tortured and murdered by the terrorists. The mastermind of this complex attack was Ali Mussa Daqduq, a Lebanese national taken by U.S. forces in Basra just...

What was the pervasive racial injustice that led Mr. Duncan to redouble such efforts? Black elementary and high school students are three and a half times more likely to get suspended or expelled than their white peers, according to federal data. And so the Departments of Education and Justice have launched a campaign against disproportionate minority discipline rates, which show up in virtually every school district with significant numbers of black and Hispanic students.

In 2010, solar panel manufacturer Solyndra Inc. received $535 million in loan guarantees for “innovative technology” under the terms of Barack Obama’s federal stimulus plan. The fact that a Price Waterhouse audit filed earlier that year with the SEC showed Solyndra had lost $558 million during its first 5 years in business, boasted negative cash flow,...

    Less than 100 days before the US presidential elections, the Obama administration is openly denying Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem. Can this be a vote-getter? Last week, the Emergency Committee for Israel released an ad titled, "O, Jerusalem." The commercial showed administration officials squirming when asked to name the capital of Israel, and highlighted the recent refusals of White House and State Department spokespeople to acknowledge that Jerusalem is Israel's capital city. The underlying message of the ad was that the administration's policy is out of step with the views of the majority of Americans. Barack Obama's position is certainly...

He has an answer: "Some of it can be attributed to the give-and-take of today's harsh ideological divide.

    President Obama will host a series of high-dollar fundraisers in the coming weeks and is expected to add more events than usual after the Democratic National Convention. The string of upcoming events reflects deep worry in Chicago about competing with the tidal wave of cash being raised by outside groups aimed at electing Mitt Romney. The impetus for more and more big fundraisers just 98 days before the election is also in stark contrast with where Obama was in his matchup against Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in 2008, when he had a substantial financial advantage fueled by individual donations.

    In the current edition of his Best of the Web Today column, James Taranto notes the oddly downbeat fundraising email sent out by deputy Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter. Bearing the subject line "Romney Defeats Obama?", Cutter goes on to warn that such "might be the headline you see" the day after the election. In recent weeks, this NewsBuster has received a number of similarly pessimistic messages from the Obama folks. But one just received today is simply strange--downright schizophrenic, you might say. Read more after below.

    Determined as always to travel the safest, least contentious path to their own re-election, House Speaker John Boehner, Majority leader Eric Cantor and House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy have decided that the Party will do NOTHING to defund ObamaCare when current, federal funding legislation expires on September 30th. Thirty times over the past two years the House has voted to repeal the President’s “Affordable” Care Act. Of course, on each occasion Republican leaders were secure in the knowledge that the measure had NO chance of passing the Democrat controlled Senate or collecting the signature of Barack Obama. And this was...

    I can't think of any other liberal rag so desperate for attention (and getting it) than Newsweek...now they're calling Mitt Romney a wimp...really? Why on earth did they want to go there?I don't even have to manufacture a concept like I did here and here...I just have to insert real pictures, and it's a more realistic cover than anything the left can throw at Romney.

    Do's and Don'ts For Mitt Romney in Israel(photo Romney at Western Wall) Unlike President Barack Obama, Mitt Romney embraces Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. By Ronn Torossian Israel News AgencyJerusalem, Israel --- July 29, 2012 ... Owning a PR Agency, I wanted to offer ten tips for Mitt Romney to observe during his Israel visit. Bowing isn’t customary in the Middle East. The Obama bow to the Saudi King is not considered customary in Israel nor anywhere else in the Middle East. Shaking hands and being polite is all that is needed. Just as anywhere else in the world,...

    Oh those looming racists at Fox News and the Republican-friendly super-PACs. They just might try to play the race card against President Obama. But not to worry! It would only backfire against them. So suggested Washington Post reporter Nia-Malika Henderson, appearing on this weekend's edition of the Chris Matthews show. Henderson assured viewers that if the Super PACs and Fox News "hint at that sort of [racial] language", there will be a "blowback" among independents and women. Chris Matthews was quick to chime in, adding that women are more devoted to "fairness" than men. View the video here.

    “One Nation Under Socialism,” by Jon McNaughton It couldn’t get much worse than the Obama Administration deciding not to enforce immigration law and effectively implementing the DREAM Act for 300,000 illegals under 30 who came here before they were 16 years old, right? Wrong. And not just “wrong” – terribly, disastrously and outrageously wrong.The union that represents 7,200 ICE agents and the other union that represents 17,000 border agents and personnel disclosed that when Barack Obama’s “prosecutorial discretion” was issued, it directed agents to take illegal immigrants at their word as to whether they had evidence to prove their citizenship,...

    An Iraq War veteran has decided to make a symbolic gesture to protest the disintegration of the United States and the United States military under Barack Obama. In the early voting for the Texas primary runoff elections, a decorated ex-Iraq Navy veteran came to vote at the Franz Road location in Katy, Texas. Not only did he want to vote, he wanted to make sure a few people understood how seriously he took this election. He first encountered the lone Democrat at the location entrance, who asked him to consider voting for a Democrat in November. He immediately denounced the...
  • Liberal Columnist: These Devastating 'You Didn't Build That' Attacks Sure Are Racist

    Like the rising of the sun in the east and its setting in the west, one can always count on some element of the Left to resort to the 'R-word' to shield President Obama from the consequences of his own words and actions.  Today, the inevitable officially occurred.  Take it away, Jonathan Chait:   Mitt Romney’s plan of blatantly lying about President Obama’s “you didn’t build that” speech is clearly drawing blood. But what makes the attack work so well is not so much the lie itself but the broader subtext of it. Watch Obama’s delivery in the snippet put...
