    WASHINGTON - The Texas presidential primary has been all but forgotten amid the state's U.S. Senate free-for-all and some attention-grabbing congressional and legislative races. But the Tuesday primary remains a test for Republican nominee-in-waiting Mitt Romney. If the former Massachusetts governor performs well enough in Texas he could formally clinch the Republican presidential nomination there.

    White House Dossier ^ | May 29, 2012 | Keith Koffler
    Vice President Biden, who has been increasingly prone to gaffes and veering off message as of late, is taking the week off. Biden will be at home in Wilmington, Delaware for the rest of the week. --- While always prone to saying the wrong thing, Biden in recent weeks has been on a roll. --------- But Biden has been the victim of many other self-inflicted wounds during the past several weeks, including calling Obama “President Clinton,” calling Romney “President Romney,” suggesting the Irish drink too much, crossing himself in front of a meeting of over 1,000 conservative rabbis, and paying...

    Cowboy Confessional ^ | 5/28/2012 | Guy Smith
    “Honour was honour, it clothed a man better than a fine jacket before the eyes of his neighbors.” This passage from John Prebble’s Culloden explains why Barack Obama has lost the south and may from that lose reelection. Prebble was writing about Scottish Highlanders in the age of Jacobite revolution. Among the tribes of Scotland, and in their modern mindset, honor is elemental. In societies that rely on mutual trust to survive, honor is essential to commerce, neighborly relations and commitments. To live in a land where one protects his honor and demands honorable actions from all others, to forsake...

    Now is the time for all good men and women to put Country above Party. For far to long the RINO Wing of the Republican Party has been in control of losing National Elections. The time has come to cast aside the hold-your-nose clothespins that the RINOs expect us to use when we vote for their tweedle-dumb or tweedle-dumber Candidates. To all Primary voters: List the top 10 demonstrated positive values for each Candidate for all offices, and vote accordingly. If there is no Candidate that meets your values for a given office, then leave that slot blank. This will...

    Repetitious Rhetoric vs. Genuine PoliciesBy: Larry Walker, Jr.According to Barack Obama, “the President’s job is to make sure everyone has a fair shot." But as I explained in Part I, the United States Constitution declares that a President’s real job is, “to the best of his/her Ability, to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Whether or not Mr. Obama has abided by the true standard will soon be revealed, with the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare. However, when judged according to his self-contrived measure, based upon his job performance to-date, Mr. Obama’s policies actually ensure that...

    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...

    ... On May 16, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, visited the Miami home of Dr. Philip Frost, the chairman of the board of Teva Pharmaceuticals, an Israel-based company that produces many different medicines, including regular contraceptives. 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.

  • Very Annoyed Matthews Rips Horse’s Ass Right-Wingers Who Cite Thrill Up My Leg, Calls Host a Jackass

    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. Nominee Allen West would nullify Obama's race card, attack Obama"care"...

    * By: Larry Walker, Jr. *“In America the President reigns for four years, and Journalism governs forever and ever.” ~ Oscar Wilde *According to Barack Obama, the job of the President of the United States is to “make sure everyone has a fair shot." However, according to Article II (Sections 1 – 3) of the United States Constitution, in which the job of the President is officially and clearly outlined, nowhere do we find such 'verbage'. Therefore, it is unnecessary to try to figure out who’s included or excluded in 'everyone', and how fair a shot must be – before...

    The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee announced Wednesday he likely won't bring up the Law of the Sea Treaty for a vote before the November election. Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) said some lawmakers “on and off the committee” have candidly told him they'd “be more comfortable” if they could avoid having to cast the controversial vote during the campaign season. He made the announcement during a high-level hearing with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey. “I would like to see this

    In a stinging rebuke of the Kentucky Republican establishment, tea-party-affiliated Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie won tonight’s GOP primary to replace retiring Rep. Geoff Davis (R) in the 4th district. With 72 percent of precincts reporting, the Associated Press called the race for Massie. He had 44.9 percent of vote, state Rep. Alecia Webb-Edgington had 29 percent and Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore had 17.4 percent. Davis, along with former Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning (R), backed Webb-Edgington, who had broad establishment support. Conservative Republican Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Mike Lee (Utah) backed Massie. The district is safe Republican turf,...

    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...
