    Finally the Republicans have someone in charge that is not afraid of his own shadow. Republicans are always cowering to the mainstream press while they mutter about the corrosiveness of it. If he keeps it up, the Republicans might actually win the U.S. Senate in 2014 and the Presidency in 2016. We are referring, of course, to Reince Priebus, Chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC). You probably have heard that two television operations announced they were doing projects about Hillary Clinton. NBC has plans to produce and air a four hour mini-series about Hillary Clinton and CNN has plans...

Last week, State Rep.

    Remember when George Stephanopoulos, at the New Hampshire Republican debate on January 7, brought up and harped on whether the candidates thought states could ban contraception? Everyone, at least on our side of the aisle, shook their heads in disbelief as to why Stephanopoulos was bringing up the issue. There was no active controversy over contraception, it wasn’t in the news, and there were far more pressing political issues, yet what seemed like an eternity of debate time was devoted to the subject at the insistence of Stephanopoulos. It was, shall we say, something out of left field. When Romney...

    Romney Takes It To Gingrich At Outset of Florida Debate Mitt Romney dropped the gloves within minutes of the outset of tonight's Republican presidential debate, assailing main rival Newt Gingrich as an unreliable conservative who could embarrass the GOP. The former Massachusetts governor, who suffered a 12-point loss just last Saturday to Gingrich in the South Carolina primary, went aggressively after Gingrich at the very top of tonight's NBC News/National Journal/Tampa Bay Times debate — reflecting his effort to halt any momentum Gingrich carries into Florida's Jan. 31 primary.

    The National Journal ^ | Monday, January 23, 2012 | Ron Fournier
    "Angry Newt" took the night off. In a striking role reversal, Newt Gingrich looked more like a firefly than a firebrand in a high-stakes debate Monday night, while rival Mitt Romney called the surging former House Speaker a disgraced, influence-peddling, Washington insider. Somebody must have awakened the cool-and-nonchalant Romney out of his debate slumber and told him the GOP nomination was slipping away. Gingrich stunned the political world -- and frightened much of the GOP establishment -- with a landslide victory in South Carolina on Saturday night that erased Romney's lead in national and Florida polls.

    After last Saturday night’s Republican presidential debate, “Good Morning America” co-anchor and “This Week” moderator George Stephanopoulos took criticism for his handling of a debate question about contraception and his persistence on the issue with GOP front-runner Mitt Romney. On Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” on Wednesday, Stephanopoulos gave his side. The question “was about the right to privacy,” Stephanopoulos said. “One of the candidates said he believes the states have the right to ban contraception. I was asking Mitt Romney the same question.” ...more (w/video)...

    ABC News commentator George Stephanopoulos has a previously undisclosed connection to President Obama – the two were part of a small group at Harvard University that met for a period of three years purportedly to promote involvement with U.S. community institutions. Participants at the research project, which took place between 1997 and 2000, included scores of individuals with ties to Obama, including several activists who were later appointed to positions in the Obama administration. Other participants were instrumental in promoting Obama’s political career. Just yesterday, Stephanopoulos was the subject of conservative criticism for pointed questions he asked Republican presidential candidates...

    Early in last night's Republican presidential debate, Texas Governor Rick Perry said he hoped to be the "Tim Tebow of the Iowa caucuses." That pop culture shorthand for an underestimated person of strong faith who comes from behind with no time to spare and snatches victory from the jaws of almost certain defeat was definitely corny, brilliantly memorable and possibly a glimpse into the very near future. While the mainstream media and the party establishment bicker over whether the go-along-to-get-along elitist or the self-serving serial adulterer will be the GOP nominee, the people of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina...

    I can't guarantee you that this will be the last video we post from last night's debate, but it's probably going to be the most memorable — after Rick Perry's gestalt-grasping clip in which he declared himself the “Tim Tebow of the Iowa Caucuses,” that is. In this clip, Michele Bachmann goes after Ron Paul on Iran and national security as if she takes him seriously. Paul is reduced to sputtering a non-sequitur about how wrong it is to declare war on 1.2 billion Muslims, which isn’t at all what Bachmann said, and more or less becomes unable to complete...

    There have been so many debates during the Republican preseason that it was hard to believe the one hosted by Fox News in Sioux City, Iowa, was the last one before the voting begins. Ratings have been strong, and commentary has been endless: You can imagine a network trying to squeeze in just one more--are you free on Christmas Eve, Governor? It has been a thrilling debate run: Pawlenty crashed; Perry blanked; Romney confronted Perry; Gingrich shined; 9-9-9; Perry blanked. But the Sioux City debate was not an epic contest. It was like the primary race itself: no dominant figure...

Frontrunner Newt Gingrich is poised for incoming barbs, especially from rival Mitt Romney.

    Tonight's GOP presidential debate in Sioux City, Iowa is technically the 13th time most of the candidates will appear on stage to discuss the issues and defend their records. But this final debate before the first in the nation caucuses is not only the last; it's the one that probably matters most. The latest poll of likely Iowa Caucus participants shows that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is holding a tiny lead over his nearest competitor, but he's been at or near that position throughout the seemingly endless string of debates while the anti-Romney crowd has migrated to a different...

    Backstage can be something of an inner sanctum at a presidential debate: even though they are appearing on live television before millions of Americans, the candidates are used to having their clubhouse hermetically sealed from the public before and after they take the stage. That was not the case for the six major Republican candidates who participated in the Fox News Channel forum on Saturday night when the network invited a New York Times reporter to roam behind the scenes as they took turns before a panel of conservative state attorneys general and the Fox News host Mike Huckabee.

    All he said was, “Let’s be humane in enforcing the law.” That was my reaction last night when Newt Gingrich argued that the federal government should refrain from deporting illegal immigrants who had been in the U.S. for many years if the effect would be the break up of a family. I did not take him to be proposing a new law conferring amnesty. To do what the former Speaker proposed would require no change in U.S. law. All you’d need is the sensible application of prosecutorial discretion. A successful immigration enforcement policy, easily implemented under current law, would secure...

    Were Gingrich strategically focused on scooping up primary voters discontented with Romney, surely he would have said something about Romney's past and present liberalism. He didn't say a word. Romney had a so-so debate performance, but it probably doesn't matter, since Gingrich didn't bother to engage him. Helping Romney even more was that Gingrich decided to use a national security debate to remind conservatives of the nuances of his "humane" approach to illegal immigration -- a lecture, for whatever its merits, conservative primary voters probably don't want to hear and particularly not in the scolding tone in which Newt delivered...

    Think carefully about what Newt said. He said, "Is it inhumane to deport an illegal immigrant who came to the United States 25 years ago," Why did he choose 25 years ago and not 20 or 30. People assume that 25 years was just a number that Newt pulled out of his ass. It is not. Think back about about what happened 25 years ago. That would be 1986. That was the year Ronald Reagan's bill gave amnesty to the then current residents in exchange for sealing the border. The border wasn't sealed and millions more Mexicans and other poured...

Leaders of the Sinaloa cartel sought dozens of American-made weapons for an attack in Mexico City on possible targets that included government buildings, an embassy or consulate or media outlet, according to documents in the case against Vicente Zambada, an alleged top lieutenant in the cartel.

How many times will Jon Huntsman remind the audience he has lived overseas? But the more important (and interesting) question that could be answered tonight is: Can former Senator Rick Santorum turn his eight years on the Senate Armed Services Committee and his real world foreign policy experience into serious consideration from Republican primary voters?

    ...About 42 minutes into Tuesday's Las Vegas, in the midst of a heated exchange, Romney placed his hand on Texas Gov. Perry's shoulder, seemingly trying to calm him down. Or at least stop him from interrupting. It was an incursion into a political rival's personal space — a move lasting a long couple of seconds that some observers thought dripped with condescension and intimidation, and others saw as benign. The boundary violation is not unprecedented. Last month, in a gesture of consolation, Perry patted Romney on the back after debate moderator WolfBlitzer asked Romney to tell Perry he deserved...

    Greetings from the picturesque campus of the Ivy League's Dartmouth College, the site of tonight's Republican presidential tilt.  The Tipsheet will have live coverage of the event, which kicks off at 8:00 pm ET and airs on Bloomberg television (time to break out the TV guide, I suspect).  Before you read my take on what to watch for tonight, check out the latest poll from Gallup, which puts the three top-tier candidates within five points of eachother. Storylines (1) Iran: Although the debate is supposed to focus almost exclusively on economic issues, today's breaking news bombshell that the Iranian government...

    Is it time to start taking Herman Cain seriously? True, Cain had plenty of early stumbles -- most famously, his plain cluelessness when asked about the Palestinians' "right of return" to Israel. He's going to have to significantly raise his game to be taken seriously. But Cain is expected to shine in tomorrow's night debate at Dartmouth, where the only topic is the economy. It's still unlikely Cain will get the nomination. Romney's had nothing to do except run for president since losing the GOP nod to John McCain four years ago, and has a formidable campaign machine in place....

    Texas Governor Rick Perry can expect his most conservative rivals to try to knock him out of the saddle Tuesday in a high-stakes presidential debate in the key state of New Hampshire. The debate, hosted by Dartmouth College and broadcast live by Bloomberg Television, will be the first to focus solely on the economy as US unemployment remains at a stubbornly high 9.1 percent with 14 million Americans looking for work. "The goal of conservatives in the debate is to take Perry out first, and go after Romney later," said Allan Louden, a presidential debate expert at Wake Forest University.

    Next Tuesday, October 11th at 8pm ET, Bloomberg and The Washington Post, in partnership with WBIN-TV and host Dartmouth College, will present the first debate of the 2012 campaign focused solely on the economy. With the nation facing sustained high unemployment as well as concern over deficits, weak growth and a possible double-dip recession, the Bloomberg/Washington Post debate will devote the entire program to a substantive exploration of the candidates' specific plans for national economic recovery -- in the state that will host the first Presidential primary a few months from now.

    In this week's GOP Presidential debate, Governor Mitt Romney and Senator Rick Santorum both repeated untruths about Governor Rick Perry's immigration position. It is time to set the record straight. First let me say, I've not endorsed a candidate and though I've predicted a Perry win in 2012, it is not based on a personal desire, but rather the assessment of all the data that I believe the general election race will be dependent on. I did the same thing in 2006, predicting a Barack Obama win, but by no means endorsing his candidacy. Second let me also say, this...
  • Illegal Immigration Collapse

    To listen to the recent Republican Presidential debates, you'd think illegal immigration was the biggest threat to the U.S. economy—not to mention to the rule of law, our social fabric and national security. We hate to spoil the political reverie, but the real immigration story these days is how many fewer illegal migrants are trying to get into the land of the free. That's the news from the Department of Homeland Security, which reports that border apprehensions have dropped to their lowest level in nearly 40 years. For fiscal 2010, arrests were 463,000, down from 724,000 in 2008—a one-third decline...
