    Dan Quayle thinks Donald Trump is a “more qualified” candidate than Hillary Clinton and the Republican Party should rally around him. The former vice president, who served under George H.W. Bush, appeared on NBC’s Today show Thursday and said that Trump was more qualified than Clinton in this particular election because people want an outsider.
  • Who was the conservative favorite in 1988?

    12/17/2014 4:31:44 AM PST · by LT Brass Bancroft · 43 replies
    I was only 11, so I was wondering who was the preferred candidate of those of us who were old enough to vote back then. Of course H.W. Bush won the nomination. I remember Bob Dole, Pat Robertson, Peter DuPont, and I think Jack Kemp running. Did Bush have trouble convincing conservatives to vote for him, or did everyone just figure that if he was good enough to be Reagan's Vice President, he was good enough for the nomination?

    Could a White House spell-off be in the works between President Obama and former Vice President Dan Quayle? In a throwback to the latter's infamous misspelling of the word "potato," Obama accidentally misspelled "respect" while introducing singer Aretha Franklin during a tribute to "Women of Soul" at the White House Thursday. “When Aretha first told us what … R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her,” Obama said, pausing briefly before the audience began laughing, apparently realizing his mistake. “She had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African Americans and women and anyone else who felt marginalized because of what they...

    Almost exactly 20 years ago, Barbara Dafoe Whitehead wrote a controversial essay for The Atlantic titled “Dan Quayle Was Right.” In case you’ve forgotten (or never knew), let me fill you in on what Quayle was right about. There once was a popular sitcom called Murphy Brown. The title character, played by Candice Bergen, was a news anchor. The show had its moments, but it was also insufferably pleased with itself and its liberalism. At least until the arrival of the Aaron Sorkin oeuvre (The West Wing, The Newsroom), it set the standard for such things. Murphy Brown was rich,...

    This column was co-authored by Bob MorrisonSen. John Kerry has a long and dubious record in foreign policy. In the 1970's, he testified against his fellow Vietnam War veterans before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He charged that they were violating the Geneva Conventions every day in Vietnam. Some POWs were outraged at Kerry's disloyal statements. They said they had been tortured by their Communist captors trying to force them to make such untrue statements. Worse, Kerry went to Paris in 1971. There, he met with North Vietnamese Communists. We need to see all his notes from those meetings....

    Mitt Romney is weird. When the Obama reelection campaign early in the cycle made the mistake of indicating that its strategy would be to imply that Mitt Romney is weird by repeatedly telling Politico that it planned on calling Mitt Romney weird, Romney’s camp countered by causing a brief and not particularly sincere media brouhaha over whether “weird” is code for “Mormon.” Plenty of Americans think Mormons are weird, yes, but in this case, the simple fact is Mitt Romney is weird, entirely apart from his religion.-SNIP- All video of him attempting to interact with normal humans is cringe-inducing, as...

    It is hard to argue against Newt Gingrich's brainpower, skills, experience, ideas, & sincere desire to put America back in its rightful place as the leader of the free world both technologically and culturally. It would be ashame to exclude Newt Gingrich from the next administration that takes office, January 2013. In that vein, we conservatives should be willing to accept a Santorum-Gingrich or Gingrich-Santorum Ticket, denying Romney the nomination, in order to truly fix America with Conservative Ideas and Actions. This requires that both Santorum and Gingrich stay in the GOP race until the convention. Any takers?

The next morning, a PPP poll showed Santorum suddenly leading Mitt Romney in Minnesota. So the Romney campaign responded with what are becoming its trademark tactics. Having completely ignored Santorum since New Hampshire, on Sunday afternoon the Romney team sent out a press release calling him “a proud defender of earmarks and pork-barrel spending.” The...

It is called the Freedom Group - and it is the most powerful and mysterious force in the U.S. commercial gun industry today. Never heard of it? You're not alone. Even within gun circles, the Freedom Group is something of an enigma. Its rise has been so swift that it has become the subject of wild speculation and grassy-knoll conspiracy...

    Mitt Romney may be dropping behind Newt Gingrich in the latest polls in Iowa (and seeing his lead narrow in New Hampshire), but he’s bagging a few endorsements from California Congresmen. Republican Reps Jerry Lewis, R-Redlands, Ken Calvert, R-Corona and Brian Bilbray, R-Carlsbad, announced their Mitt-devotion Tuesday, as Romney makes a West Coast fundraising swing that stops in Burlingame Wednesday. Although Mitt has promised media avails “almost” every day, as we noted, “almost” is apparently the eighth day of the week in California. That continues Mitt’s Whitmanian avoidance of media whose employer’s name doesn’t rhyme with “cox.” The trio of...

    It seems not a day goes by without Florida Senator Marco Rubio being mentioned as the favorite choice for vice president among Republicans in Washington. Even talk radio’s Rush Limbaugh weighed in when he said Senator Rubio should run for president in 2012. It is true that Senator Rubio has certain political assets, including his ability to “attract” Latino voters due to his Cuban heritage. He also is conservative, smart, and a good speaker. And he hails from a state that is considered the mother of all battleground states for 2012. What’s not to like if you are a Republican...

    Republicans should leave President Obama alone about his golfing habit, former Republican Vice President Dan Quayle said Wednesday evening. Quayle, who served as vice president from 1989-1993, said it was unreasonable for Republicans to expect Obama to be constantly monitoring every issue in the world. "I'm glad he's out playing golf. I happen to be a golfer," Quayle said on the Fox Business Network. "I think presidents deserve down time. And believe me, he is in constant communication with what's going on."

    A Swiss bank that used its Cayman Islands’ branch to engage in what a US federal judge has branded “predatory lending practices” is being investigated by the US authorities. Senior officials of Credit Suisse, Switzerland’s second largest bank, are facing claims that they pocketed millions of dollars by dishing out loans that were impossible to repay. On Tuesday, 15 September, 31 of the bank’s officials received subpoenas demanding that they hand over internal documents that explain why they loaned $375 million to the now bankrupt Yellowstone Club in 2005. The Yellowstone Club, founded by American tycoon Tim Blixseth, was once...

    Like many influential causes before it, the "tea party" movement appeared on the scene uninvited by the political establishment. Democrats in the White House and in Congress recognize it for what it is -- a spontaneous and pointed response to the Obama agenda -- but some Republican leaders still aren't sure what to make of it, as tea partiers have risen on their own and stirred up trouble in GOP primaries. Sometimes in politics it's easier to recognize foes than friends, and this may be why Democrats have been quicker to figure out the movement's potential. They know that in...

Quayle's reply was revealing in that he proved that he really didn't know how to think about the Tea Partiers. I think that Quayle is in exactly the same confused state that most of the old guard GOP is. They just don't get it....

    Cerberus, the investment group, is barring investors in two new hedge funds from withdrawing money for three years in an effort to avoid a repeat of the large outflows that followed its lossmaking purchases of Chrysler and GMAC, the group’s executives said. The move to introduce a three-year “lock-up” is rare among hedge funds and could pave the way for other managers to follow suit. Hedge funds typically offer investors the chance to withdraw money every few months – a feature that contrasts with alternative asset classes such as private equity that require multi-year lock-ups. But after suffering more than...

    Sarah Palin and Joe Biden may have made a few mistakes during Thursday night's vice presidential debate, but it remains to be seen whether their mistakes will stick in voters' minds like one infamous vice presidential gaffe from the 1992 election. Few political gaffes are as memorable as Vice President Dan Quayle's misspelling. Quayle told a grade-school boy in New Jersey that he had misspelled the word "potato" during a photo-op spelling bee. With the cameras rolling, Quayle directed the boy to add an "e" to the end of the word. "Potatoe" became a defining moment in the election, and...

The Patriots, made by Raytheon, hit 45 of the 47 Scuds launched by Iraq. It is a complex weapon utilizing sophisticated radar and electronics and requiring quick thinking by soldiers who operate it.

I don't think he'll lose 57 states in November, but, one hopes, he'll lose enough.
