  • Ron Paul's New Book Sinks His Immigration Grade to an 'F'

    NumbersUSA ^ | Monday, May 2, 2011, 5:25 PM EDT | Roy Beck
    The biggest problem with Rep. Paul's (R-Texas) latest comments on immigration is that they are NOT just some ad hoc thoughts tossed off carelessly at some speaking event. These are engraved in a brand new book. Until the release of the book, Liberty Defined, Dr. Paul had a mixed record in Congress and the fact that he had taken the NumbersUSA "No Amnesty" pledge at the end of his Presidential campaign in 2008. That had earned him a C-minus on our 2012 Presidential Hopefuls Immigration Stances Report Card. Not impressive, but the third best (behind Rep. Bachman with a B-minus...

    The Daily Beast ^ | 11.12.12 | Michael Medved
    ...there’s no basis for the common claim Obama won through a superb, unprecedented, supremely effective get-out-the-vote effort by the Democrats. Even downcast Republicans have hailed the opposition’s turnout operation as magnificent, but they fail to note that it resulted in far fewer voters showing up for President Obama. - The president drew 7.6 million fewer votes than he did in the hope-and-change election of 2008. - Exit polls showed that Obama got a slightly smaller percentage of the black vote than last time and that turnout was sharply down, delivering at least 1.5 million fewer African-American ballots for the Democrats....

    On the campaign trail ahead of the 2012 New Hampshire primary, Mitt Romney didn't always come across as the most freewheeling candidate for president. At event after event around the Granite State, the former Massachusetts governor and business executive didn't waver in his focus on President Obama and the pace of the economic recovery. Romney might not have been as wooden as caricatures of him suggested, but he wasn't lighting up the trail as a charismatic leader. He had traded the neckties of his 2008 bid for jeans and rolled-up sleeves, but he still seemed pretty buttoned down. As a...

    One of the interesting aspects of any modern presidential campaign has been the lack of detailed policy positions from the candidates on NASA and space exploration. The reason for this can be illustrated by what happened to Newt Gingrich when he made an exception and proposed building a moon base when he ran for president in 2012. More of that anon.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry offered the 30,000-foot view of his energy plan to be unveiled today on Larry Kudlow's show Thursday evening. In a nutshell, here it is: 1) Open up all federal lands to energy exploration and production 2) Do it via executive order within the first 100 days. This policy does not require congressional action. 3) Rebuild the EPA (reminiscent of Newt Gingrich's manta of "repeal and replace") to remove regulatory burdens from energy companies so that they can get America to work. 4) Perry estimates that this action alone will create 1.2 million new jobs. 5) And,...

While unveiling the 100-page report at the National Press Club today, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said he wanted the report, or autopsy, to be "honest" and "raw," stressing the message of inclusion to Americans who might not be on board with all the party's policies.

    Searching old newspapers is one of my favorite pastimes, and I have tried to use them many times to shed light on current events - or to inform readers about how the past is prologue to our very interesting present-day quandaries. Recently, I came across a syndicated column from November 1979 that seemed to point 30 years into the future toward an obscure campaign issue that arose briefly in the 2008 presidential campaign. Though by no means definitive, it provides an interesting insight, at least, into how Chicago politics intersected with the black power movement and Middle Eastern money at...

    The Iowa Republican Party will announce the official winner of its Jan. 3 caucuses on Thursday morning, and Rick Santorum is holding out hope that hes eight-vote loss will suddenly become a win. But does it even matter? In a word, yes. But theres also little reason to believe it would recast the Republican presidential race in any major way. With the official announcement set for 9:15 p.m. Eastern time Thursday, news that Santorum actually won the first-in-the-nation contest would surely be seized upon by the former Pennsylvania senators campaign as proof of its momentum and to call into question...

    Republicans in Iowa are working overtime to prevent a repeat of the botched 2012 caucuses when scores of unaccounted ballots caused Mitt Romney to be wrongly declared the winner over Rick Santorum. State party officials say they've moved aggressively to address the problems that plagued the ballot count in January 2012, and believe the new technologies they've adopted, as well as having more workers on staff and enhanced training programs, will pave the way for a smooth and accurate reckoning at the Feb. 1. caucuses. "We're extremely confident that we've addressed all of the issues," said Iowa Republican Party spokesman...

Trump was equally blunt in assessing former President George W. Bushs younger brother. You cant have Bush, Trump said. The last thing we need is another Bush.

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney attacked real estate mogul and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday, telling a CNN reporter he thinks Trumps remarks on illegal immigrants were a severe error. Do you think Donald Trumps comments on Mexicans have hurt the Republican Party? a reporter asked Romney in video carried on CNN on Saturday. Yes, I think he made a severe error in saying what he did about Mexican-Americans, Romney replied. And its unfortunate. Do you think the candidates should speak up about that? the reporter followed up. I think a number of them have, Romney replied.

    I think we're going to win, Trump said. We're beating him in everything. We will win the Hispanic voters. They love Trump. I love them, and the fact is no one can create jobs like me. I have so many Hispanics, and they love me. I employ, they're tremendous people. They work hard. Mexicans, all over. I have thousands. I have thousands." Trump took time to talk about Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney. "Hillary breaks the law, and nothing happens. Nothing happens. Do they even talk about the emails anymore?" Trump asked. "We wanted Mitt to win, and unfortunately, Mitt...

    On June 20 former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney called for South Carolina to remove the Confederate flag from their state Capitol grounds in Columbia. His call comes in the wake of the heinous attack on Charlestons Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. It follows a photo of the suspected gunman, Dylann Roof, in which Roof is seen leaning against his car with a Confederate flag license plate visible on the front of his vehicle being widely circulated. Here were Romneys exact words: Take down the Confederate Flag at the SC Capitol. To many, it is a symbol of racial hatred....

    Former Massachusetts Gov. and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney said he thinks former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush would probably like a mulligan on the recent question on the 2003 invasion of Iraq but said that Mr. Bush is a very capable person who could raise more money than all the other GOP presidential contenders put together. Well, Im sure he would have liked to have taken it back and get the answer out at the end that he gave and put that at the very beginning, and I think he did misunderstand the question, Mr. Romney said in an...

    Would conservatives support a presidential bid by David Petraeus? The Iraq surge architect isn't a candidate. But for years prominent conservatives from Rep. Peter King to Andrew Breitbart have touted the soldier-scholar as a dream conservative candidate to take on Barack Obama. The question is, if Petraeus had run, would his service in the Obama administration -- first as head of U.S. Central Command, then as Commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan and now as CIA Director -- have counted against him? It's safe to say conservatives wouldn't have re-purposed the old "General Betray-Us" moniker for the man who has...

    Many readers are scratching their heads over my endorsement of Ron Paul last week. One writes: Let me add a few more reasons to vote for Ron Paul: If you want all federal student aid eliminated, vote Paul. If you want the Department of Energy, Commerce, Interior, Education and Housing & Urban Development eliminated, vote Paul. If you want the department of Transportation Security Administration eliminated (meaning security is the sole responsibility of private property owners), vote Paul. You can't just ignore Paul's "nuttier policy proposals". These proposals are Paul. If you endorse Ron Paul, you're endorsing his proposals. There...
