    Welcome to Florida! Bienvenido a Florida! This election is about the future of this nation. We can shape that future with what we do here, with what we do November 6. We can restore America's greatness. That starts with a strong economy, a smart energy policy, lower deficits, and a president who puts America's workers and job-creators first. But to have a great future - a secure future - a future that is equal to our potential as a nation, we need to do something else. We must make sure that our children and grandchildren are ready for the world...
  • Jeb Bush to Republicans: ‘Stop Acting Stupid’ on Immigration (Pushing Amnesty Yet Again)

    Tonight, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is addressing the Republican National Convention. Why is he being given that honor, you say? That is a good question, since he is at great odds with both the party's nominee, the party's platform, and the American people on the issue of immigration, and continues to insult us on a weekly basis to pimp his pro-amnesty views that we have consistently rejected. At a forum on immigration, Bush said Republicans aren’t going to close the gap with Hispanic voters until they “stop acting stupid” by being too "tough" on "immigrants" (the usual code for illegal...

    The Hill ^ | 08/29/12 | Cameron Joseph
    TAMPA, Fla. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) on Tuesday said Republicans aren’t going to close the gap with Hispanic voters until they “stop acting stupid.” Bush said many Hispanic voters share the GOP’s commitment to faith, family and small government but have been alienated from the party by exclusionary rhetoric on immigration. But that, he said, is finally changing. “I promise you this is where the conservative cause is going, and thank God it is,” he said to cheers at a lunch sponsored by the center-right Hispanic Leadership Network. The advantage that Democrats have with Hispanics is a...
  • Protesters try to arrest Condoleezza Rice at RNC event (Code Pink)

    TAMPA, Fla. — Police in Tampa stopped a dozen anti-war protesters from entering an event attended by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice after the group said it intended to arrest her for war crimes. The protesters from Code Pink carried handcuffs Tuesday and tried to enter a performing arts center. Rice was attending an event in conjunction with the Republican National Convention. They said they wanted to make a citizen's arrest of Rice. She was George W. Bush's National Security Adviser when the Iraq War started in 2003. Officers told protesters to leave because they were on private property...

    Just came across this interview with an Irish journalist during a stop through Ireland when W. Bush was President and it apparently was never aired in the U.S. according to the person who posted it. If a journalist did this today to Obama they would be called unprofessional and a racist, however it was perfectly fine to treat a 2-time elected President of the United States who was a Republican this way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ36HS8dRbY&feature=colike

    Campaign '12: Where are those allegedly unbiased fact-checkers when you need them? Like this week and the fantastic fib that Obama's deputy campaign manager told about job growth under the current president. Here's Stephanie Cutter's quote in full — uttered Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" — just so no one can accuse us of taking anything out of context: "Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what's happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and...

    Washington - The strategic partnership between India and the United States has "retreated" under the current Obama Administration as compared to the momentum built during the Bush-era, Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney's campaign has said. "The relationship between India and the US is mutually beneficial and there is a need to forge new areas of cooperation," a top foreign policy advisor to Romney said yesterday. "I worked in the Bush Administration both 41 and 43. Especially in 43 (George W Bush) we were very proud of the partnership were able to forge between the United States and India. "I...

    National Review ^ | 08/15/2012 | Michael Novak
    The central mantra of President Obama’s campaign is false. That mantra is: “The Republicans tried their plan for the economy and it failed. I tried a new plan and it worked.” As I pointed out on National Review Online yesterday, the facts are otherwise. Closing out his fourth year in office, President Obama has an 8.3 percent unemployment rate. He also boasts the lowest rate of participation in the labor force in 30 years (63.7 percent). More Americans are out of work than at any time in the preceding 30 years. There are 7 million more persons in poverty than...

    Can someone explain to me why the Americans are so shameless in their love of dynasties? The Founding Fathers must turn in their grave as the Kennedys, Bushes and Clintons grab the glittering prizes. But for a bargain struck by Hillary Clinton with Obama in 2008 she might well have become an ultra-bossy Mrs President. Settling for Secretary of State, she has, in her quarrelsome way, caused the usual damage abroad associated with that office.
  • Obama Wrongly Accuses Bush (and Paul Ryan) of Causing the Great Recession

    AEI Ideas ^ | August 14, 2012 | Pethokoukis
    The Obama campaign has made a curious economic argument as part of its attack on Paul Ryan: Ryan rubber-stamped the reckless Bush economic policies that exploded our deficit and crashed our economy. Now the Romney-Ryan ticket would take us back by repeating the same, catastrophic mistakes. Actually, Team Obama is saying the same thing twice here since the deficit would not have initially exploded without the Great Recession. (In 2007, the federal government ran a tiny budget deficit of 1.2% of GDP) So which Bush policies, exactly, “crashed the economy”? Certainly not the much reviled — at least by Democrats...

    National Review ^ | 07/30/2012 | Michael Barone
    Does the 2012 campaign look a lot like the 2004 campaign? Many Democrats think so. And there are some resemblances. As in 2004, current polling suggests a close race and shows only about a dozen states in contention. As was the case in 2004, the incumbent has been running negative ads against the challenger, hoping to disqualify him the same way that Bill Clinton disqualified Bob Dole in 1996. Many Democrats think that Barack Obama’s attacks on Mitt Romney’s business career will have the same effect that the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ads had, they believe, on John Kerry...

    Today Barack Obama blamed his four years of trillion dollar deficits on the Bush tax cuts. From the president’s Weekly Address: You see, Republicans in Congress and their nominee for President believe that the best way to create prosperity in America is to let it trickle down from the top. They believe that if our country spends trillions more on tax cuts for the wealthy, we’ll somehow create jobs – even if we have to pay for it by gutting things like education and training and by raising middle-class taxes. They’re wrong. And I know they’re wrong because we already...

    Investor's Business Daily ^ | 07/23/2012 | John Merline
    A key attack line in President Obama's campaign stump speech these days is to claim that the country has tried Mitt Romney's economic policies already, and they were a dismal failure. Romney, he says, wants to do two things: Cut taxes for the rich and massively deregulate the economy. "The truth is," Obama says, "we tried (that) for almost a decade, and it didn't work." Bush-era tax cuts and deregulation, he argues "resulted in the most sluggish job growth in decades" along with "rising inequality, surpluses turned into deficits, culminating in the worst economic crisis in our lifetimes." There's just...

    Buford, Ga. – There was no mistaking the man who walked through the glass doors of the hotel complex on the shores of Lake Lanier. The trademark shock of white hair remains neatly groomed. The hawk-like nose still juts out over a tight jaw. The eyes are clear and bright. But the stride is gone. Zell Miller walks gingerly now, always with a cane. The former governor and U.S. senator describes himself as an 80-year-old man with 100-year-old legs. “I very, very seldom go anywhere,” Miller said in an interview. Miller’s appearance on Friday was a rare return to a...

    Former President George W.

President Bush is confident that Mitt Romney will be a great President. But he’s still enjoying his time off the political stage and respectfully declined the invitation to go to Tampa.” Asked if the former president had been invited to only attend or whether he was also asked to speak, Ford said the...
