    Ted Cruz showed remarkable fighting spirit in the Republican presidential debate on Thursday, lacing Donald Trump with the same kind of brilliant and witty lines that he's used in his fights against Mitch McConnell. When Trump's bogus charges against Cruz's eligibility to be President were raised, Cruz turned the tables on him, remarking that Trump had no problems with his eligibility several months earlier, giving this incredible one liner: Since September, the Constitution hasn't changed, but the poll numbers have. Trump looked very uncomfortable at that. But Cruz was just beginning, He even pointed on that Trump's own mother was...

    Donald Trump latest's close-up is coming from the unlikeliest of magazines: Rolling Stone. The magazine, well known for its progressive bent, interviewed and photographed Trump for its September 24 cover. The article's most-talked-about passage on Wednesday was a Trump comment about rival Republican 2016 candidate Carly Fiorina. Writer Paul Solotaroff was sitting with Trump watching a newscast when a video clip zoomed in on Fiorina. "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?" Trump said to Solotaroff. "Can you imagine that, the face of our next president. Trump added, "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say...

    "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney says in one clip. "There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing." Adding to his argument about entitlement, Romney said his "job is not to worry about those people." "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives," he added.
  • After the game, Oregon football player Blount punches BSU player and confronts fans (Video)

    But the lasting image from this highly anticipated kickoff to the 2009 college football season may be Blount punching Boise State's Byron Hout after the final whistle and then needing to be restrained from fans by police on the field. As the Broncos began celebrating on their famous blue turf, Hout yelled in Blount's face and tapped him on the shoulder pad. That drew an immediate scream from Boise State head coach Chris Petersen, but before Petersen could pull Hout away, Blount landed a right hand to the defensive end's jaw. Then as Blount was being pulled off the field,...

    Sarah Palin is seeking the advice of a Scientologist as she plots her 2012 presidential run, which just makes sense to us. John P. Coale, a prominent Washington lawyer and power-broker, is secretly running Palin's political action committee and working to "protect the Palin brand," according to the Washington Post. He is very, very good at doing that because he can walk through walls and read minds and leave his body and never gets sick because he is a Scientologist.

    President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur. President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration's "unconscionable ineptitude" in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips...

    Barack Obama conducted his first press conference as President Elect, with Vice President Elect Joe Biden and his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel at his side and his economic advisors, looking appropriately dour and serious, standing behind him. There was not much in the way of news made at the Obama press conference, aside from a shot taken at an old lady named Nancy Reagan. The majority of the questions were about the current economic situation and what Obama intends to do about it. The short answer appears to be the enactment of some kind of economic stimulus package, the...

    The day before today's New Hampshire primary, Hillary Clinton desperately searched for issues she could use against Barack Obama. Unfortunately, she made the mistake of attacking him for what she called his inconsistent record on the Iraq war. Remember, Obama, as an Illinois state senator, opposed the war in 2002, and Clinton, a U.S. senator from New York, voted to give President Bush the authority to go to war against Iraq. You would think Iraq would be the last issue Clinton would raise against Obama, who has tapped into a public hunger for change in Washington. "If you make a...
  • Mike Huckabee's Low Blow

    12/13/2007 5:43:42 AM PST · by Kaslin · 152 replies · 127+ views ^ | December 13, 2007 | Hugh Hewitt
    When Mike Huckabee asked a New York Times' reporter, "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers," he crossed a line he cannot uncross. Previous to this he had played a game of teasing the anti-Mormon vote, and had been called on it by Charles Krauthammer and others. But Huckabee had maintained deniability. No more. Huckabee's obvious attempt to salt the mine and get the reporter to carry antt-Mormon rhetoric into the paper without Huckabee's fingerprints on it backfired, and the transparent attempt to use the MSM to further the anti-Mormon message was repulsive. Until he crossed that...

On CNN, Huckabee said he told Romney "face to face" after today's debate in Iowa that he was sorry for the quote from an article to be published in Sunday's New York Times Magazine. Huckabee told CNN that he had asked if Mormons believe Jesus and the devil are brothers because it was something he had heard, adding that he never thought his query would appear in the story.

    PRESIDENT Bush has surged to a six-point lead in his battle to stay at the White House — amid a backlash against election rival John Kerry among women voters. Senator Kerry’s popularity plunged after he singled out vice-president Dick Cheney’s daughter as a lesbian in the final head-to-head TV debate. The comment while answering a question on beliefs about homosexuality enraged her family. Mum Lynne Cheney demanded an apology after accusing Kerry of a “tawdry political trick”.

Both John Kerry's and John Edwards's specific mention of the sexual orientation of Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter during the debates was a deliberate and calculated political attempt to suppress religious conservative voters from turning out to the polls for President George W.
