    Wisconsin's Republican Governor Scott Walker, fighting a recall election, against his challenger Democratic Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, face-off June 5, 2012, in one of most important contests of our generation.. Background noise? Not even close..Make no mistake, this pesky little contest will determine the momentum, on both sides, and serve as a preamble of the major General Election this November.. All of the important Democrat lifeblood constituencies are at stake, and are being challenged, and hanging by a slim thread, thanks to a true hero, GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER. He and the fighting spirit of his fellow Wisconsinites, dared to touch...

Teva is also one of the country's largest producers of generic drugs. ... “At this point, the sentiment of most pro-life leaders and activists I am in contact with is that this election is about avoiding the unmitigated disaster of a second Obama term," said Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life.

    In February of 2008, NewsBusters first highlighted MSNBC’s Chris Matthews oozing “I felt this thrill going up my leg” while listening to a speech by Barack Obama. Conservatives reminding him of it has certainly annoyed Chris Matthews ever since, so much so that he lashed out at C-SPAN’s Steve Scully, sinking to including the non-profit cable network’s senior executive producer as amongst the “jackasses” who dare to ask him about his infamous Obamagasm moment. The confirmation of Matthews’ incredibly thin skin came Tuesday at a panel session during the National Cable and Telecommunications Association’s convention in Boston. “I hope you...

    Now that the State Primaries are almost completed, it is important to ask if Moderate Mitt from Mass. has proven himself to be able to beat unqualified, incompetent, arrogant, Marxist Obama? The RNC made the Primary Campaign rules, and so the RNC can change those same rules. No Federal Regulator will be involved, 'I guarantee it.' IF Romney has only a slight chance to win in November, THEN it is incumbent upon the RNC to DUMP Romney and choose a stellar Dark Horse, such as Rep. Allen West from Florida.

Alecia Webb-Edgington had 29 percent and Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore had 17.4 percent. Davis, along with former Kentucky Sen.

    I first met Mitt Romney in the fall of 1985 when he took a chance on me and my idea to sell discount office supplies. Together we then worked to found Staples. From the very beginning, I saw that he was super-frugal. He didn’t want to pay more than he had to for things like paper clips. That was the idea behind Staples. And for Mitt, cutting costs and running things well has been a consistent animating idea, whether he’s been in business or government or running the Olympics. Now that he’s campaigning for president, Mitt’s brand of leadership could...

    Judging from the opening rounds of the 2012 campaign for president, Barack Obama's campaign staff may have met its match with the rapid-response group put together by Mitt Romney. Unlike the presidential campaign four years ago, when political newcomer Obama rolled over a strangely passive John McCain, Obama this time around faces an aggressive Romney campaign team that is savvy and bold, and knows how to punch back. And frequently, the counterpunch is more effective than the punch, especially when the first punch comes from Obama, who is prone to lead with his chin, and is used to treating candidates...

    A Marine veteran was unjustly turned away from a voting booth because he was openly carrying a handgun.

A former Marine, Edinger carries a firearm with him just about wherever he goes. Indiana law lets him do that, of course, as long as he stays out of places like schools and courthouses where...

The plan was to invite a handful of supporters, spend a few hours shooting at targets, and raise a little money for her reelection campaign. But what actually happened took everyone by surprise. Rather than hosting a typical fundraiser which would ordinarily draw a few dozen people, Rep. Conditt ended up hosting a major event that drew over 200 attendees and raised tens of thousands of dollars. What happened? Rep. Conditt got an "accidental" assist from a group of anti-gun...

    Democrats are weaving together a string of anecdotes about Mitt Romney to argue he lacks compassion, and the former Massachusetts governor might have to fight back using something he doesn’t like to talk about— his Mormon religion. The tales about Romney range from the trivial to the traumatic, from the political to the personal. But the Obama campaign’s hope is that they create a synergistic, decidedly negative portrait of a candidate who is still largely unknown to many voters. Romney’s sins, according to Democrats: He once strapped his dog, Seamus, to the roof of his car during a family vacation;...

What do former Vice President Dick Cheney, Governor Chris Christie, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, former Governor Sarah Palin, columnist Ann Coulter and anti-tax activist Grover Norquist have in common? They're all prominent conservatives, and they've all made overtures to the gay community. Cheney publicly endorsed gay marriage years ago.

    Already leading in the polls when it comes to women’s votes, the Obama campaign laid out a bold plan to seal the deal with a short film called the “Life of Julia.” In the film, the government is portrayed as Julia’s omnipresent caregiver and overseer. “Both psychology and our polling data indicate that the thing women want most is to be taken care of,” said Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod. “Sadly, the traditional method of achieving this objective—being part of a loving family as a daughter, wife, mother, etc.–is defective. What we’re offering is for the government to slip in...

    During the speech, Obama ripped into the presumptive GOP nominee and discussed nation building at home, but the most newsworthy item of the day was not the talking points Obama delivered: it was the crowd... or lack thereof. According to ABC News, the Obama campaign had expected an "overflow" of people. Instead, the arena looked half-empty. The Columbus Dispatch reports that Obama organizers even had people move from the seats to the floor of the gym in order to project a larger crowd on television.

Just in time for the election. The president can do this without Congress. What an...
