  • Romney vs Obama: One Critical Difference We Can't Ignore

    I am beyond disappointed that the RINO Republican establishment has saddled us once again with a scum sucking moderate. Jim Robinson has expressed his non-support of mitt Romney in no uncertain terms. I wholeheartedly agree with his disgust. The reason that the establishment wants Romney as opposed to a true conservative is status quo. The Republican establishment is just as guilty as mainstream Democrats. They are making money off a system that is fundamentally broken. Their only concern is who is steering a sinking ship. However, there is one critical difference between Romney and Obama. It is a difference we...

    Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Monday sounded no closer to endorsing Mitt Romney than when he dropped out of the race last week, telling supporters on a conference call that he hasn’t even had a chance to speak to his onetime rival. Santorum said he has talked with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. “I haven't had a chance yet to talk to Governor Romney, but we'll be talking to both of them and we’re going to go out and do what we believe is in the best interest of our country,” Santorum said in the call, which had at...

Romney said Obama’s “policies have not helped the American people. They have not helped get jobs,...

    Project Veritas’ demonstration of how easy it is to vote in someone else’s name failed to inspire concern at the Attorney General’s office. The demonstration involved sending a scruffy, young, white man to 61-year-old Eric Holder’s polling place to see if poll workers would give him Holder’s presidential primary ballot. Despite the young man’s lack of photo ID he was offered the ballot. Holder called the demonstration “a stunt that doesn’t prove anything. No fraudulent vote was cast. The only harm that was done was to people’s confidence in the integrity of the ballot. Maintaining this confidence is the key...

    Even after a precampaign diet last year — less wine, less cheese and especially less chocolate — François Hollande, the Socialist who is currently favored to become the next president of France, still has a soft face and looks slightly sloppy in his medium-gray suits. He used to be referred to as “Flanby,” after a brand of wobbly caramel pudding, just one of a string of insulting nicknames for a convivial man considered always at the second rank of politics. He has been called “a living marshmallow” and “Mr. Little Jokes,” and just last year, Martine Aubry, the head of...

    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich says he probably wouldn't accept a job in Mitt Romney's Cabinet, if Romney is elected in November and such an offer is extended. Gingrich told WILM-AM's "Elliott In the Morning" show Thursday that he's not opposed to Romney, the likely GOP presidential nominee. He says he'd back Romney if the choice is between Romney and President Barack Obama. But the former House speaker said he would prefer to be an adviser to a potential Romney administration, as he was during the presidency of Republican George W. Bush. Gingrich says he wants to enjoy his life...

A Romney/Hillary ticket would distance the GOP from GW Bush, the Tea Party and the religious right in the minds of voters. 2. Hillary was born into and raised in an Republican establishment family. 1. The most important thing this election is to stop Obama before he can do four more years of damage.

If four years of Jimmy Carter so awakened Republican voters that they nominated Ronald Reagan, why has nearly four years of Jimmy Carter on steroids so sedated Republican voters that they've decided to nominate the equivalent of Gerald Ford as the best option for defeating him? In large part, the establishment insists on it and, like Obama, seems disinterested in the will of the people. This establishment is so invested in Romney that it is overlooking the potential...

    Of all the campaign surrogates on the trail this cycle, Rick Santorum can legitimately claim the biggest. His most faithful supporters are the Duggars, the stars of the television reality show “19 Kids and Counting.” They include parents Jim Bob and Michelle and their 19 children, ranging in age from 24 to two. Members of the clan follow Santorum from stop-to-stop, collecting donations from supporters and talking up the former Pennsylvania senator’s values and policy stances. The Duggars themselves often serve as a second attraction to the candidate, signing family autographs with Bible verses. The Duggars are a longtime television...

    Senate Republicans want to alter DREAM Act legislation to steal away Hispanic voters from Democrats. Sen.

He declined to provide any details, but confirmed he hopes to have legislation soon. “I don’t have any specifics to announce yet,” said Rubio. “This stuff...

    President Obama gave a hot mic supplication to departing Russian president Dmitry Medvedev that Putin should give him more “space” and “flexibility” on such national security issues as Anti-Ballistic Missile defense. According to Obama, this will be his “last election,” after all. Of course, any mention of this eye-popping exchange outside the credentialed press will be spun by Pravda West as mere blog fodder for de-contextualized right-wing hysterics. Well, comrades, let’s at least make sure our hysterics are properly contextualized, shall we? The exposed convo between the two outgoing presidents runs as follows and was originally reported by Jake Tapper...

    Liberal House Democrats on Monday unveiled a 2013 budget that increases taxes by $4.7 trillion more than President Obama proposed in his own budget last month. The Congressional Progressive Caucus said the taxes are necessary to fund $2.9 trillion in new stimulus spending to “put Americans back to work” and “rebuild the middle classes” while reducing the deficit. This new spending includes canceling the cuts in last August’s debt-ceiling deal between Congress and the White House. The CPC budget will be offered as an amendment this week to the House GOP budget for 2013, which contains $2 trillion less in...
