    DETROIT - Attorney General Bill Schuette is among the Michiganders who are endorsing Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush. In a statement Wednesday, Bush listed a handful of state leaders whom he said would help bring his "message of opportunity and renewal to every corner of the state." "I am happy to have the support of so many of Michigan’s great leaders and look forward to growing the team. Michigan is a key state and I will work hard to earn the support of every voter," Bush said. Bush is scheduled to visit Michigan for the Mackinac Republican Leadership Conference on...

The Peach State campaign will be headed by Georgia Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens and 10th District Congressman Jody Hice. From the press release: “Sen.

    Now that there are more than a dozen hats in the ring on the Republican side of the election and several lining up on the other side, I have chosen my favorite: Marco Rubio. I learned a long time ago that you don’t need to agree with a candidate 100 percent of the time, but if you find one you agree with most of the time who speaks well, has knowledge and is for business, genuine and electable, you may have found just the person you’d like to see run the USA and take us to a better place.

    Sen. Ted Cruz now has five fellow Texan members of Congress publicly backing his 2016 presidential run. Cruz’s campaign announced Thursday morning the endorsement of Rep. Brian Babin, R-Woodville. “Ted has shown the conservative leadership and fortitude we so desperately need in our nation’s highest office,” said Babin in a statement released by the Cruz campaign. ”Now is a time for truth,” echoing the title of the senator’s new book, “and he will speak honestly to the American people.” Like Cruz, Babin has been critical of Republican leadership and President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration. Babin voted “present” in...

    Serious question: what did Mark Halperin mean when he said that NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio "may be playing a more dangerous game than he realizes" by refusing so far to endorse Hillary? On today's With All Due Respect, Halperin prefaced his ominous observation by saying that there is "furor in Hillary Clinton's camp" over the matter. De Blasio's omission certainly is striking, considering that he was Hillary's campaign manager when she ran for Senate from New York. View the video here.

    American Thinker ^ | January 5, 2015 | M. Joseph Sheppard
    Defining a politician’s personality, whether positively to build them up, or negatively to tear them down, is a basic rule of politics. Themes can define an image e.g. "Roosevelt's categorization of Al Smith as "The Happy Warrior" or Democrat folklore depicting William Jennings Bryan as "the Great Commoner" are two classic positive examples. On the negative side, Mitt Romney never recovered from being defined as "Mr. 1 percent", nor did John Kerry from being "Mr. Flip Flop." Once a politician is defined (fairly or unfairly doesn't enter into the picture) as say, Rick Perry was as a forgetful ditherer, it...

    It would be the height of churlishness for even the most inveterate leftist to deny the import of someone who made Time magazine's "100 Most Influential People" list, and then the Smithsonian Institution's "100 Most Significant Americans Of All Time" list. Both affirmations were earned by former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. To then accept Governor Palin as "American Achiever of the Year 2014" would be for most, if not all on the left (and to be fair, many in the GOP) no doubt a bridge too far. However, such partisanship should not stand in the way of...

    With control of the U.S. Senate up for grabs this November, a single seat may determine who has the majority. That’s why Republicans should find it disconcerting that two of their establishment lions have broken ranks and are backing Democratic candidates in competitive races. The latest apostate is former senator John Warner of Virginia, who announced this week he is backing incumbent Democratic senator Mark Warner for reelection. He is thus giving the back of his hand to former RNC chairman Ed Gillespie, a former George W. Bush adviser, who has a decent shot at winning and is no wild-eyed...

    Four years ago, one of the two major party candidates then pursuing the White House - Barack Obama or John McCain - was about to inherit the most challenging situation any president had faced in 70 years: an America on the verge of economic collapse, at war on two fronts. At the time, this page noted that there was "no limited government candidate for this era of undisciplined and damaging spending excess." That turned the decision to other factors, and ultimately made it easier to endorse Obama, who would become the nation's 44th president. To some degree every election is...

    As he prepares to face the voters' verdict, President Barack Obama can rightly take credit for leading an economic recovery from the most serious economic collapse since the Great Depression. The $831 billion stimulus bill approved soon after the president took office, the middle-class tax cuts, and the auto industry bailout contributed to that turn-around. The president has made mistakes, certainly. The stimulus was arguably too small and rolled out too slow. President Obama should have used his political popularity at the time to push for more. In a second-term the president, free from concerns about re-election and no longer...

Obama would be more credible in critiquing the proposal if he had a serious alternative for bringing entitlement spending under control. He doesn't. Romney is not our ideal candidate for president. We've been turned off by his appeals to social conservatives and immigration extremists.

Paul says he’s not ready to follow Rick Santorum’s lead by endorsing Romney in the near future … and why should he?

    In his weekly radio address on April 14, President Obama displayed his lifelong commitment to an ideological extremism of pure theory unhinged from reality. That failure of leadership is why America is in a scary downward slide that will not stop until fundamental change is made at the top. The bottom line is that raising tax rates on investment income to finance increased government spending could not be a more confused, upside down policy to promote economic growth. It reflects only Obama's extreme, neo-Marxist ideology, which is fundamentally offended by investment income flowing to "the rich." In sharp contrast, presumptive...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: St. Louis. This is Greg. Great to have you on the program, sir. Hello. CALLER: Hey, Rush. God bless you, buddy. Been listening to you for a long time, and, like you, I'm an expert at what I do.

It drives 'em crazy. RUSH: I can imagine that. I've heard such stories, guys on ladders with the radio on...

    Former California Gov. Pete Wilson today endorsed Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination, part of a rising move within the party to rally around the frontrunner. Romney has made a big effort to line up high-profile endorsements, although several notables, such as former Florida Gov. and conservative darling Jeb Bush, have remained neutral. Wilson, although considered a conservative in California, is viewed as fairly moderate within the current GOP. In his endorsement statement, Wilson called Romney “an enthusiastic believer in American exceptionalism” and called him “a spectacular example of it.” (American exceptionalism is a term traced back to Frenchman Alexis...

    Surely it can’t hurt Mitt Romney’s heretofore nonexistent blue collar appeal to have a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour endorse him. Grammy-award-winning comedian Jeff Foxworthy, known for his popular “You might be a redneck if … ” series, tweeted his support for Romney yesterday. “Time for Republicans to unite behind Gov. Romney, a great leader who can win the White House and rebuild our economy for all Americans,” the funnyman, known for telling “redneck” jokes, tweeted on Thursday. Romney’s son Tagg called the nod “very cool” on Twitter, writing, “I am a huge Blue Collar Comedy fan.”

    Yesterday's endorsement of Mitt Romney by former Florida governor Jeb Bush sent the implicit message that the time had come to wrap up the nomination process and begin focusing on the general election. Bush made that more explicit in an interview with Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Salena Zito --- and Bush had an idea how to make the ticket even stronger: Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush says Republican front-runner Mitt Romney has earned the right to take on President Obama in November.“It is time to get behind the nominee,” Bush told the Tribune-Review on Wednesday during a visit to Pittsburgh. “And it...
