  • Newt Gingrich: the modern spokesman (Vanity)

    Few days ago, after running close second to Mr. Santorum in Alabama and Mississippi, Mr. Gingrich lamented that nobody and entire nation could not understand him. At that moment, I said to myself, “Mr. Gingrich, now I know for certain that I would cast a vote for you in any political election!” I have found a true patriotic visionary whose aspiration is to lead the country to her past greatness, not to run just for the grandiosity of Presidency. No one understands him. Political pundits enjoy listening to his speech and keep wondering why he did not break out as...

    It's not unusual for President Obama to criticize his Republican predecessors from time to time, but this morning, he targeted his scorn not at George W. Bush or Ronald Reagan, but ... Rutherford B. Hayes. As Politico reported: Speaking about the need to develop new sources of American energy in Largo, Md., Obama used our 19th president as a failure of forward-thinking leadership. "One of my predecessors, President Rutherford B. Hayes, reportedly said about the telephone: 'It’s a great invention but who would ever want to use one?'" Obama said. "That's why he's not on Mt. Rushmore."

    It’s true that in reality, the “win” didn’t change the delegate count all that much. Give or take, all candidates still split the delegates about 2:1 for Santorum. And it’s true that there are clearly enough “winner take all states” that play to the Gingrich game plan that he could still get to the convention with the most candidates, none having 1,144. But it is also clear to me after analyzing the data, I must intelligently weigh the situation for what is the best prospect to beat Obama and sell conservative policies to the American people to save this Republic....

    The controversy over requiring voters to provide photo IDs has reached the world stage. The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland.. This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and one member, Saudi Arabia, still bars women from the voting booth completely. Officials from the NAACP are presenting their case against U.S. voter ID laws, arguing to the international diplomats that the requirements disenfranchise voters and suppress the minority vote.

    Roll Call ^ | March 14, 2012 | By David M. Drucker
    “Some in the GOP are speculating that the four remaining presidential candidates will be unable to secure the required 1,144 delegates, pushing the decision to a convention floor vote that is typically an orchestrated formality. Senate Republicans expect their party to crown a nominee by the time the primary season ends in June, thus avoiding such a scenario. But they caution that failure to do so would be a political disaster.“It would be a big mistake on our part,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who is not aligned with a presidential candidate. “If we don’t have a nominee [until] Labor...

    MATHEMATICALLY MR. ROMNEY CANNOT CLAIM THE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE OUTRIGHT (Vanity) After March 13, after Alabama and Miss., Romney gets total of 391 bound delegates and he needs 1,144 for nomination. So he still needs 1,144 – 391 = 753 bound delegates. About 100 bound delegates of Florida and Arizona that Romney “won” will be challenged and will be re-allocated proportionally by CD or will be unbound, so his number will be reduced even further. In the remaining elections, I consider the following states which traditionally more conservative and growing weary of Romney’s electability, the bound delegates probably will be allocated...

    WASHINGTON _ The Senate on Tuesday resoundingly rejected a sweeping measure to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other protected areas to oil drilling, as well as to approve construction of the Keystone pipeline project. Tuesday's vote was the first time in four years that the Senate has voted on a measure including ANWR drilling, and it failed miserably.

    THE REAL PICTURE OF REPUBLICAN PRIMARY ELECTION BASED ON BOUND DELEGATES. The winner of the first ballot casting at the National Republican Convention will be declared the Party’s nominee to face Obama in November of 2012. So Romney can declare himself an eventual winner of the primary election process ONLY WHEN he can count 1,144 BOUND delegates. However, many states have complicated systems when it comes to allocate their delegates at the National Convention. For example, most Illinois’s 66 delegates, Ohio’s 66, and Penn’s 72 are unbound. We don’t know how many will be bound to which candidates until the...

    President Obama would have ended up a one-term president if last summer's mission to kill Osama bin Laden had failed, according to Vice President Biden. Biden, speaking Monday night at a small fundraising event for Obama's reelection campaign, contrasted Obama's leadership during his first term with that of House Republicans during the debt-ceiling crisis last summer. “This guy’s got a backbone like a ramrod,” Biden said of Obama, according to the White House pool report. He cited the success of the military mission to capture Osama bin Laden in Pakistan last summer as a decisive moment for his presidency. “He...

    None of this matters. Not Iowa or New Hampshire. Not South Carolina or even Ohio. Not Mitt Romney’s gaffes, nor Newt Gingrich’s impertinence, nor Rick Santorum’s sanctimonies. Not Sheldon Adelson, not Foster Freiss and not even Rush Limbaugh. The 2012 Republican presidential primary may leave a few lasting memories, and could do some irrevocable damage to the GOP brand. President Barack Obama will undoubtedly end up a bit bruised. But mostly it’s pointless, because the 2012 presidential election is effectively over right now: All of the available data indicate that Romney will be the Republican nominee by end of spring,...

    as a Santorum supporter I believe that Santorum voters in Alabama should vote for Newt Gingrich as Santorum will not likely win in either of those states. I do not believe that we can afford to vote for Santorum in those southern states right now because if conservatives SPLIT that southern vote, we are in serious danger of giving Romney a victory there, which would encourage the media to push Romney even harder. Also, Newt supporters should DEFINITELY vote for Santorum in Illinois. Santorum can win that state which Romney was counting on. Newt is polling around 10% in Illinois....

    In the last presidential campaign, the peek inside Obama's church came courtesy of the Trinity United Church of Christ's DVDs. They revealed an anti-Semitic pastor whose brand of Christianity was rightly questioned. In 2012, the peek inside Mitt Romney's church will come courtesy of people like Helen Radkey, a former Mormon herself who has uncovered the names of individuals who have been posthumously baptized as Mormons. The mainstream media has already reported on Anne Frank being baptized nine times. There are many, many more. In 2008, conservative media pundits declared the death of journalism, in part, because the mainstream media...

    A Florida pastor is calling for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to publicly renounce his "racist Mormon religion." Rev. O'Neal Dozier, a supporter of fellow GOPer Rick Santorum, also insisted that the former governor of Massachusetts should bow out from the presidential race. The pastor explained his requests during a press conference on Sunday, citing several passages in the Book of Mormon that he says prove the religion is rife with racism. "The purpose of this request is to foster and maintain good race relations here in America," Dozier said in a press release. "The Mormon religion is prejudiced against...

    The season of voter primaries is upon us in Chicago and elsewhere. Voting is a moral act, so considering how to vote requires moral deliberation. What are the principles and the issues that help a person of faith decide how to vote? Can the Pope be of help? Since the Pope is sovereign, the question of how to vote doesn’t apply to him personally. But the Holy Father’s Lenten Message for 2012 gives us the framework for shaping our thoughts and honing the considerations we should have in coming to a morally responsible decision on how to vote.

    (Reuters) - The Obama administration on Monday blocked a new Texas law requiring voters to show photo identification before they can cast a ballot out of concerns it could harm some Hispanic voters who lack such identification. The state law approved in May 2011 required voters to show government-issued photo identification, which could include a driver's license, a military identification card, a birth certificate with a photo, a current U.S. passport, or a concealed handgun permit. The Justice Department said that data from Texas showed that almost 11 percent of Hispanic voters, just over 300,000, did not have a driver's...

    Rarely have Republican voters made it as obvious that they would rather have anyone else than the inevitable nominee. Romney has the delegates summons all the voter enthusiasm of Taft and Ford combined. The establishment, as usual, isn’t paying attention or pondering the implication of a situation where Rick Santorum is repeatedly beating out Romney, not just because of his message, but because any non-Romney is capable of doing the same thing. And has done it. The history of these primaries has been a list of alternative candidates to Romney who is winning because the candidates have either been personally...

    Davis Guggenheim's recently completed film biography presents an unstintingly glowing portrayal of President Barack Obama. There is, to quote Guggenheim, “no downside to this man save the enmity of his enemies.” “Only one other person in the history of the world has led a comparably exemplary life,” Guggenheim asserted. “Jesus healed the sick. Obama gave us healthcare. Jesus fed the multitudes. Obama has put more people on food stamps than any other president. The parallels between the two men's great works are uncanny.” Guggenheim expressed some anxiety that “like Jesus, Obama may be crucified for his efforts. Every day, right-wing...

    Hoping to tap into deep distrust of Washington, Republican Rick Santorum suggested Friday that President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney share a top priority: to take away Americans' money and freedom so they can tell them how to live. A day before Kansas Republicans weigh in on the party's presidential contest, Santorum looked to shore up support in this Midwestern state that seemed ready to give the former Pennsylvania senator yet another win and further challenge Romney's front-runner status. With sharp rhetoric, Santorum likened Romney to Obama and cast both as unacceptable for conservatives. "We already have one president who...

    The huge tax increases proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown are becoming much less popular as voters learn more about them. At the rate of decline in popularity over just the past two months, there may be no one left in California who will vote for the higher taxes by the time November balloting arrives, save, of course, Mr. Brown and the principal beneficiaries, public employee union members to whom he panders. Meanwhile, an analysis by the state Board of Equalization, which handles state business taxes, has weighed the impact of the governor's higher taxes and found them quite costly. The...

    OKLAHOMA CITY – It was right after the words “mic check” were uttered by Occupy OKC ringleader Jay Fox, that things got really interesting in the crowd listening to a campaign speech by Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. “Racist, sexist, anti-gay, zealot, fascist, go away!” “Get your hate, out of my state!” “Pro-life, pro-war, what are you fighting for?” This and other chants aimed at Santorum were yelled at the candidate as he tried to speak over the din. It didn’t take long for both male and female Santorum supporters to get in the faces of Fox and other Occupiers...

    Coach is Right ^ | 3/4/2012 | Ron Reale
    Once again, we have Newt Gingrich show why we need this year’s primary season to continue into the Republican Convention. While some of the others are trying to jump into Newt’s shoes, and go after the media for their lies and twisting of the facts we all know, Newt not only points out the medias misrepresentations, he also demolishes the policies of this failed, (from an American’s point of view), president. Newt realizes who the real target is. He, from the inside of the electoral process, and Sarah Palin from the outside, is more interested in bringing down Obama than...

    Mitt Romney won Washington state's presidential straw poll Saturday. He got more than one-third of the votes, well ahead of Ron Paul and Rick Santorum, who were battling for second, each with about a quarter. Newt Gingrich had to settle for about one vote in 10. Turnout at the caucuses was huge — about four times the number of people who participated in 2008....

    Camp4u - Tennessee politics behind the scenes ^ | March 3rd, 2012 | Senator Stacey Campfield
    As the presidential primary draws near in Tennessee, some hard decisions face us. Newt Gingrich to me is the top candidate. Smart, experienced and a great debater with the history of solid results to get it done. In his time as speaker he stood up to the media, balanced budgets, cut unemployment to half what it is now and did a wealth of other great things like reforming our welfare system. He would make an outstanding president. Unfortunately, politics is a cruel mistress. Things shift and momentum turns. After South Carolina 2 mediocre debates and some missteps (such as pushing...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The federal court in San Antonio has ordered Texas to hold its primary elections on May 29, resolving for now one of the biggest issues in the state's redistricting battles. The three-judge panel issued the election schedule two days after releasing political maps for Texas to use in the 2012 election. Legal disputes over the maps for congressional and House districts have kept Texas from holding elections. In the primary schedule released Thursday, the filing period for candidates reopens Friday and closes March 9. While the court order clarifies the election schedule, some minority groups...
