    Glenn Beck predicted Friday that he believes conservative voters will look to Republican presidential candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz “when it comes down to it,” because he has the “gravitas” to win the election. “I think it’s going to be Cruz when it comes down to it,” he said on The Glenn Beck Radio Program. “When you go in and you have to vote and you’re looking at today’s world, who do you think has the gravitas to really pull this off?” Beck went on to say he believes Cruz is “serious enough” to be president of the United States...

    If either the GOP contenders or President Obama plan on dismissing Michele Bachmanns candidacy out of hand because she represents the Tea Party, they ought to think twice.In the war of economics and business, where these campaigns will likely be won or lost, Bachmann has shown the strongest practical grasp on issues of the American economy vs. any of the candidates in the race. Certainly she has the academic and business experience for her views on the economy to be taken seriously."After high school, meanwhile, the disciplined Bachmann spent time on a Kibbutz in Israel, graduated from Winona State University...

    Governor Sarah Palins Record That Gave Her A 90% Approval Rating: Energy Independence, Development, and Environmental Stewardship *Governor Palins cornerstone accomplishment is AGIA (Alaska Gasline Inducement Act). During the Palin administration, TransCanada and Exxon formed an alliance to build a natural gas pipeline from Alaska to the Lower 48. Under Governor Palins governance, the project was expanded and revised from what previous governors had proposed with an open policy process for the Alaskan people. More progress was made on this effort than in the previous 30 years. This is the largest private sector infrastructure project in North American history and...

Now this.Is he … trying to alienate grassroots conservatives? And if so, why? “With all due candour, appearing on your own reality show on the Discovery Channel, I am not certain how that fits in the American calculus of ‘that helps me see you in the Oval Office’,” Mr Rove told The Daily Telegraph in an interview.He added that the promotional clip for Sarah Palin’s Alaska could be especially detrimental to any...

    When George Bush selected Dick Cheney as his running mate in 2000, the braying asses in the media decided he made the choice to add gravitas to his ticket. Bush was a twice elected governor of Texas, and managing the second largest state economy in the country. He had run the Texas Rangers baseball team and had served honorably in the Texas Air National Guard. Nevertheless, the Democrats media cheeerleaders immediately latched on to the word gravitas like a child learning a new word. The media spewed an endless stream of stupid comments about how the well accomplished Bush needed...

    Back in 2000 the Democrats were all in agreement that it was of paramount importance to have a man with "gravitas" in the oval office. Back in 2004 the Democrats were absolutely adamant that, at a time when our country was/is at war, we needed a veteran from the Vietnam Era with a track record of leadership. Today we have a candidate that exemplifies both of those qualifications and those very same Democrats can't seem to find a single member that's willing to show even a modicum of consistency. Not one talking head in the media has asked the question...

    ..... The economic crisis brings a new question, unarticulated so far but there, and I know because when I mention it to people they go off like rockets. It is: Do you worry that neither of them is up to it? Up to the job in general? Is either Mr. McCain or Mr. Obama actually up to getting us through this and other challenges? I haven't heard a single person say, "Yes, my guy is the answer." A lot of shrugging is going on out there. This is a read not only on the men but on the moment. ........

    In choosing Senator Joe Biden of Delaware as his running mate, Barack Obama has acknowledged his own shortcomings while recognizing that the election he and his people thought a cakewalk a few months ago is now a battle royale along the lines of the 2000 and 2004 contests. Republicans would do well not to celebrate too much over this choice. On the surface, it may appear to be a mistake - an almost comically bad selection by Obama due to Biden's well known (and well documented) verbal gaffes. And, as Politico points out, this should worry the Obama camp: But...

    As we all remember from the 2000 election the MSM, more accurately called the Democrat Media believes Gravitas is extremely important. They talked about G-A-V-I-T-A-S more than any issue for quite some time. Bush was a very risky candidate because he lacked a certain level of, of, ah, hold itGRAVITAS. Now I just watched the Saddleback Civil Forum on the Presidency hosted by Rev. Rick Warren. Senators Obama and McCain were both asked essentially the same questions. And I have to say that while Sen. Obama did OK without his teleprompter Sen. McCain came off much more Presidential with much...

    Marc Ambinder declares Fred the winner: On points, Fred Thompson won the debate. Every answer was thoughtful and well-crafted; his tone matched the tone of the question; he wisely refrained from interjecting in the back and forth squabbling. He very deftly reminded viewers that he served on key Senate national security panels and is bringing his experience to bear. Even his insults were subtly and gently constructed In some ways, Thompson did McCains bidding. You skeptical readers can tell me that if Thompson had finished a solid fourth in Iowa, I might not be writing about Thompson at all, that...
