    Chris Wallace, anchor of Fox News Sunday, spoke with Kilmeade & Friends about his debate questions to Donald Trump. Wallace also weighed in on the use of phone interviews on Sunday shows. Wallace’s reaction to Trumps criticism of his debate questions: “I don’t think he particularly likes tough questions…they were tough questions and I don’t apologize for anything I asked.” On the bankruptcy question: “You can’t ask him about his voting record, you can’t ask him about his record as governor of a state because all he has is his business record. It’s a little unusual he was involved in...

    ...before we get off the topic of Fox News and the fact that they are “oh-so-shocked” at the supposed sexism of Donald Trump…here’s a little perspective. Back in 2010, Chris Wallace joked about having my Mom (Sarah Palin) sit on his lap during an interview. In 2011, Roger Ailes said, “I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings.” Fox and Erickson need to get off their high horse on how outraged they are NOW about sexism and decency.

    We have never succeeded in shrinking the size of government," Republican Carly Fiorina told "Fox News Sunday." She said she would do it. "We have a bunch of baby boomers who are going to retire out of the federal government over the next five to six years. I will not replace a single one," she promised. "And yes, we need to actually get about the business of reducing the size, the power, the cost, complexity and corruption of this federal government."

    Reporting from Cleveland -- With the Republican presidential debate less than 10 hours away, Fox News anchors Chris Wallace, Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier sat at a long table with their producers and once again went over the game plan for the big night. They reviewed not just the questions they would ask, but the structure of every query, keeping in mind the constraints of time and the need to avoid repeating topics. As they sorted and re-sorted questions, the unpredictability of real estate tycoon and reality TV star Donald Trump was never far from their minds. Baier even had...

    Donald trump in a CNN interview had the temerity to smack down the talking vagina that is Megyn Kelly after she -- basically -- accused him of being a misogynist: a person who dislikes, despises, or is strongly prejudiced against women. This is how Megyn Kelly began her non-question, question: "You’ve called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.” “Only Rosie O’Donnell,” Retorted Trump. “No, it wasn’t,” Argued Megyn -- without anything to backup her assertion -- “Does that sound like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?” So let me get this...

    Wallace: Everyone knew Wallace was a gotcha question interviewer. He brought that same insecurity to the debate. There was no doubt that every question he asked of a conservative, non-establishment candidate was an attack question. The question that shows the worst of Wallace was he actually invited Kasich to attack Trump. That was cowardly. He didn't have the guts to do what he wanted to do, no doubt due to some journalistic reserve he would purport to represent, but he then tried to triangulate Kasich into doing it for him. Kasich's refusal highlighted the truth about Wallace's cowardice Kelly: Not...

Rubio this is due to the 2014 border crisis and "unilateral actions the president took in his executive orders." Rubio acknowledged former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) "partially lost" the Republican primary in 2014 because of his support for comprehensive immigration reform. "The problem is the votes aren't there in the House," Rubio said Sunday. "And as you know, for example, the Majority Leader of the House partially lost his election on the perception...

The two men were discussing Little Caesars’ bacon-wrapped crust pizza when Gallagher brought up “fat shaming.” “Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson?” Gallagher asked Wallace. “Holy cow, did she blow up.” At first, it seemed that Wallace was going to avoid joining in on this bizarre line of questioning, saying he thinks Clarkson has “got...

Yet two prominent Fox News hosts, Chris Wallace and Shepherd Smith, harshly criticized Boehner and Netanyahu on Friday for secretly arranging a Netanyahu speech to Congress that is transparently aimed at undermining President Obama, and set up without the White House's knowledge. The White House, State Department, and many foreign policy observers, including prominent former US ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk, expressed outrage over...

    In mid-November, conservative news outlets posted multiple videos of Jonathan Gruber, an MIT health economist who worked on Romneycare and Obamacare, crediting the "stupidity" of American voters as one reason that the health law passed. The videos were not flattering for Gruber; Democrats have moved quickly to distance themselves. And, perhaps more consequentially, they have breathed new life into the Obamacare opposition effort. Today, the House Oversight Committee is holding a hearing with Gruber titled "Examining Obamacare Transparency Failures." ...

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told “Fox News Sunday” that President Obama will neither sign government funding bills that slash domestic spending nor negotiate with Republicans over spending cuts to reduce the federal debt limit. He also said the president was not going to accept a budget in which domestic spending is further cut to soften the blow to Defense spending.

    Video: Does the number $16.7 trillion ring a bell? It's the debt ceiling. It's the line in the sand that must not be crossed. And to protect that line we have a Republican Congress. But that line has been crossed and not a peep out of Congress or the major news media. Obama's unelected bureaucrat, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, just unilaterally hiked the national debt of the United States another $51 billion dollars. And how did he do it? Simple. He just did it. No Senate. No Congress. No problem. He simply called it a "standard set of extraordinary measures"...
  • [Obama Stooge] Lew asks Congress for debt increase, says it’s 'not open to debate'

    Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Friday urged congressional leaders to raise the debt limit and insisted that the White House is not going to negotiate over the increase because lawmakers have "no choice." "We will not negotiate over the debt limit," Lew wrote. "The creditworthiness of the United States is non-negotiable. The question of whether the country must pay obligations it has already incurred is not open to debate." Lew said that while President Obama is willing to discuss plans to reduce the nation's deficit with Congress, those talks must be kept separate from any effort to raise the nation's...

    On Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace went after Treasury Secretary Jack Lew over the investigation—or lack thereof, in Wallace’s estimation—of alleged targeting by the IRS of conservative 501(c)(4) groups. The IRS scandal—which had receded in recent weeks after an audit by the Inspector General revealed progressive groups were scrutinized in addition to conservative organizations, and produced no evidence linking the behavior to a political appointee—was revived this week when President Barack Obama’s invoked “phony scandals” in his speech in Galesburg, Illinois. Lew was directed by Obama to follow up on the Inspector General’s report
  • Will Chris Wallace ask a Dem if JFK could get the Dem nomination today (per Bob Dull interview?

    I can't wait for Chris Wallace of Fox News to ask - really ask - a Democrat if JFK could get the nomination today, and/or if the Democrat Party really is big-tent (accepting of Dems who are pro-second amendment, pro-across-the board tax cuts, pro-life, pro-traditional marriage), etc... If one could go back to JFK's time and ask him personally if he would support same-sex marriage, I wonder what he would say. And JFK supported across-the-board tax cuts, too, btw. One thing that we could take from the interview though is that there is no reason for the GOP to say...

    On Fox News Sunday this morning, evangelical leader Gary Bauer and Republican strategist Nicole Wallace went head-to-head over the upcoming Supreme Court hearings on overturning Proposition 8, California’s controversial law banning same-sex marriages within the state. “You don’t advance limited government by being an anti-democratic movement that is attempting to take this issue away from the American people,” Bauer said of Wallace and other conservatives who submitted an amicus brief to the court. “What the brief is asking for and what the groups waiting outside the Supreme Court are asking for, is for unelected judges to deny the people of...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week that he thinks Republican presidential candidates in 2016 could be supporters of marriage equality. Rove my the comments during a discussion on the Supreme Court’s hearing on a challenge to California’s Proposition 8 schedule for later this week. “Karl Rove, can you imagine the next presidential campaign a Republican candidate saying flat out ‘I am for gay marriage,’” asked Stephanopoulos. “I could,” said Rove, before turning the discussion back to the Supreme Court’s hearing on the issue. Rove said that he thinks some Supreme Court Justices have expressed sentiments...

  • Chris Wallace Lies On National TV -- "Grandiose" and Newt Gingrich

    Chris Wallace just claimed on national TV that he looked up the word "grandiose" in the dictionary and that it is a negative word and that Gingrich misused and misapplied it to himself. In the segment, Wallace was obviously spinning against Gingrich, and in that piece he was saying the "grandiose" exchange with Santorum was Santorum's shining moment. However, he claimed he looked the word up in a dictionary and that the word is negative in meaning. If he actually looked it up in any dictionary, it would have had multiple meanings. In honesty, he would have had to report...

    Mitt Romney, making a direct appeal to middle class voters, said this morning that he would be a president who would protect average Americans – a statement that is sure to be challenged by Democrats and will become a major theme in the general election if Romney wins the nomination. “The people who have been hurt in the Obama economy are not the wealthy, the wealthy are doing just fine,” Romney said this morning on Fox News Sunday. “The people that have been hurt are people in the middle class.” In a wide-ranging interview with Chris Wallace – his first...

    With former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney set to make a long-awaited appearance on Fox News Sunday next week, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and Fox host Chris Wallace have begun to trade barbs. On his Thursday show, Scarborough — who at the time mistakenly thought it was set for this Sunday — offered some advice for Romney, alleging that his interviewer, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, “loathes” him. “And by the way, he’s going on Fox News Sunday,” Scarborough said. “Chris Wallace has never made a secret of the fact that he loathes Mitt Romney. He has never liked him....
