    **Exclusive** Late Thursday evening, Mitt Romney's presidential campaign launched a new fundraising drive, 'Meet The VP' -- just as Romney himself has narrowed the field of candidates to a handful, sources reveal. And a surprise name is now near the top of the list: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice! The timing of the announcement is now set for 'coming weeks'. MORE
  • Santorum's Michigan pitch calls him a 'trusted conservative'

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 02-14-12 | Paul West
    Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum -- in a neck-and-neck race with Mitt Romney in Michigan -- joined his rival in releasing new TV ad footage on Tuesday aimed at the state's voters. Santorum's spots tout him as a "trusted conservative" and the choice of supporters of the "tea party" movement, social conservatives and evangelical Christians, all important elements of the Feb. 28 primary in Romney's home state. One of the ads uses mainly written words -- praise in the form of quasi-endorsements and favorable quotes -- from Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, among others -- over an urgent sounding symphonic...

    Santorum Fights the Liberal Bulldozer Feb 13, 2012 R.R. Reno Rick Santorum was impossible thirty years ago. If Rip van Winkle woke up today he would be dumbfounded. How could such an overtly religious and socially conservative politician have so much traction on the national scene? The answer comes from the Left. Since the Sixties our liberal elites have become increasingly anti-religious, increasingly opposed to traditional moral norms, and increasingly aggressive. As a result they have made our national politics much more extreme. To a great extent, post-sixties American politics has been shaped by liberal aggression. As Lyndon Johnson knew,...

    01/18/2012 6:33:50 PM PST · by Antoninus · 49 replies
    Here's Rick Santorum's latest ad, and in my opinion, it's his most powerful broadside against Mitt Romney and the Washington establishment. REBELLION This comes on the heels of another Santorum ad that does exactly what the Not-Romneys should all be doing--demonstrating that there is no difference between Romney and Obama. EASY ANSWER These hard hitting ads should put to rest any ideas that Rick Santorum is running as a stalking horse for Romney or for the Vice Presidential slot. Santorum is doing exactly what many of us hoped he'd do--hit Romney hard, again and again. Win or lose, you've got...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 010612 | William A. Jacobson
    This video (via Leslie of Temple of Mut) of Rick Santorum has made the rounds as evidence that Santorum is hostile to the Tea Party movement. The key sentence, in which he expresses and intention to ďvocally, publicly opposeĒ the Tea Party, is ambiguous. Was he saying he would oppose the Tea Parties, or only those in the Tea Parties who in his view are distorting conservatism? Regardless, I find the dialogue troubling. I would describe myself as a ďconservative with a libertarian streak,Ē and I think that description probably would be used by a lot of Tea Party supporters....

    For those coming in late, let me summarize*: both Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry have been excluded from the Virginia Republican primary by the Virginia GOP. This has placed the VA GOP in an awkward situation, given that: they have excluded the current national and Virginian front-runner from their own ballot; have currently no write-in option on the ballot; do have an open primary that anyone can vote in; and generally have created an environment peculiarly suited for conspiracy theories involving Mitt Romney (and ones that wonít contain the word ĎMormoní anywhere in their description, by the way).

    Herman Cain has defied the political odds so far in the face of campaign adversity, and it looks as if he has the GOPís conservative base to thank for it. The last month of Cainís presidential campaign has read like a textbook for how to doom a candidacy: having to deny allegations of sexual harassment, bungling important foreign-policy questions while saying heís not ďsupposed to know anythingĒ on the subject, releasing a bizarre Web ad and canceling an editorial board meeting with a key New Hampshire newspaper. And yet, in an Iowa State University poll released Thursday, the former Godfatherís...

    November 3, 2011Herman Cain flunks foreign policy Alan Caruba It can be argued that domestic affairs are a president's top priority, but the Constitution expressly puts the chief executive in charge of setting and conducting foreign affairs. It is therefore essential to know if the candidate who wants to be president has a reasonable knowledge of events around the world. On Tuesday evening I watched an edition of Fox News Bret Beir's Special Report where Herman Cain was "center chair" as the usual members of the panel got a chance to quiz him and, after he attempted to dispose of...

    Turnabout is fair play, so they say. After Politico first reported a story last week of allegation of sexual harassment from Herman Cain by two women, then continued on to report and even promote the report with 90 Cain stories in five days, the notion of innocent until proven guilty has been voided according to conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh. However, on his Friday radio program Limbaugh proposed using Politicoís rules against Politico by getting a conservative ďLarry Flynt,Ē the publisher of Hustler magazine that offers money for sexual misconduct by Republicans, to do the same against the media,...
