    The Examiner ^ | March 4th, 2012 | Joel Gehrke
    Rick Santorum indicated that Newt Gingrich should drop out of the presidential race, arguing -- as Gingrich did during his surge -- that splitting the "anti-Romney" vote helped Mitt Romney win the Michigan primary and Washington caucuses and contributes to his overall success so far. "It's always harder when you've got to conservative running in the race as we have seen in Washington and we've seen in other states," Santorum said on Fox News Sunday. "We have the anti-Romney vote, if you will. Both Gingrich and I are slugging away." Santorum stopped short of calling for Gingrich to exit the...

    As many of you know, Palin for the most part--other than the occasional foreign trip or Facebook post countering the Obama agenda-- has gone dark these past few months, up until her speech in Madison this weekend. Pundits have claimed that she isn't running because she hasn't kissed the rings of GOP insiders from New Hampshire or Iowa, despite reports that her people have been talking to local tea party groups. I will now make the argument, that Palin's 2012 campaign is soon to begin or is at least is all but confirmed. I will briefly begin with some of...

I have followed this controversy and to be fair, I found the objections to it to be a little thin, but most of us don't live in Alaska and are not famliar with the subtle tones of their ethics laws and issues. I will say this, IMO most if not al of the problems with it could have been avoided early on but Palin in concert with her advisors made several bad decisions...

    The Guardian ^ | 05/06/10
    According to tomorrow's New Statesman, Barack Obama was unimpressed by his encounter with David Cameron earlier this year and commented: "What a lightweight!" According to James Macintyre's report, Cameron's attempt to stress his pro-American and Eurosceptic credentials did not meet with Obama's approval. According to Macintyre's diplomatic sources, the Democratic candidate was "distinctly unimpressed" and labelled Cameron a lightweight. Macintyre notes that 48 hours earlier Obama had delivered a speech in Berlin stressing "the importance of Europe's role in our security and our future". Following the meeting with Cameron, Obama apparently asked officials for more information on Tory Euroscepticism. Macintyre...

    In boxing you have a lot of weight classes, from your heavyweights down to your strawweights (105 lbs). But in comparing Obama as President to boxers, I don't want to offend any strawweights. Hence, Obama the fleaweight. As a candidate, Obama seemed to be the 800 lb gorilla; as President, he's been far more the 32 milligram flea. I still think that the polite contempt that Marines showed for Barack Obama ought to be the top story of every media outlet in the country. They most certainly know that their commander-in-chief is a fleaweight. When a Maxine Waters goes after...

    Barack Obama's offhand approach to Gordon Brown's Washington visit last week came about because the president has facing exhaustion over America's economic crisis and is unable to focus on foreign affairs, the Sunday Telegraph has been told. Sources close to the White House say Mr Obama and his staff have been "overwhelmed" by the economic meltdown and have voiced concerns that the new president is not getting enough rest. British officials, meanwhile, admit that the White House and US State Department staff were utterly bemused by complaints that the Prime Minister should have been granted full-blown press conference and a...

    So what makes Palin special that she should be selected ahead of anyone else? There isn’t any single qualification. It is the combination of things that makes Palin an excellent choice. She is young, dynamic, a cost cutter, and she has populist roots, as well. She is likely to help cement the Middle American hunting and fishing generally blue collar vote through her ties to a similar community in Alaska. She is a pro-life Christian, which will strengthen McCain’s hand with the evangelical community. While we haven’t seen it yet on the national scene, she may be a tougher woman...

    Draft Sarah Palin for V.P. ^ | 8-27-08 | Adam Brickley
    Well, Barack Obama has made his VP selection, taking Washington's most vicious attack dog, Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware. So, the question has now become how to combat the fast-talking Biden and his decades of foreign policy experience. Unfortunately, most of the Republican punditry is running scared from Biden and, in my opinion, suggesting that McCain adopt a disastrous strategy with his own pick. So, here are my thoughts on how to beat Biden, and they are probably different from what you've been hearing on the news: Biden is a fast-talker who pulls no punches. He has an encyclopedic knowledge...

    I've already shown how Sarah Palin would be a smart pick by John McCain to be his running mate. In light of recent events, she's looking like a smarter selection . The announcement made early this morning by the Obama camp that Delaware Senator Joe Biden is Obama's choice to share the Democrat presidential ticket with him sets the stage for McCain to name his own vice presidential nominee. The conventional wisdom seems to be that it will be former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Although I think Romney would be a strong selection, the Biden pick would make Gov. Palin...

John McCain's choice for vice presidential running mate.

She’s pro-life, a lifetime member of the NRA, and she’s cut spending while in office, standing up to some pretty significant opposition. I am talking about Alaska governor Sarah Palin, the first woman and the youngest person to ever hold the office. Rumors are buzzing now that John McCain will announce his Vice-Presidential pick this week in an attempt to eclipse Barack Obama’s trip overseas. Robert...

    Who? When? Republicans including, I imagine, Sen. McCain himself are asking these questions about his selection of a vice presidential candidate. Ideally, a presidential candidate wants a running mate who will help him or her win the election, and (maybe) to govern afterwards. But most will settle for a veep who isn’t a drag on the ticket, as Dan Quayle was for the first President Bush. Traditionally, a presidential nominee has chosen a running mate to balance the ticket geographically, or to appease a faction of the party. The most successful example of this was when John F. Kennedy picked...

No, what I'm dicussing here is beauty in the political sense - as in the beauty of what John McCain, if he's smart and willing to make a really bold move, could accomplish by naming Governor Palin as his running mate for the presidential election.

It was hailed, celebrated, canonized as the greatest pronouncement on race in America since Lincoln at Cooper Union. A New York Times columnist said it "should be required reading in classrooms across the country." College seniors and first-graders, suggested the excitable Chris Matthews. Apparently there's been a curriculum change. On Tuesday, the good senator begged to extend...

    WASHINGTON - Although he frequently makes a point of finding something charitable to say about his opponents’ arguments, Sen. Barack Obama almost always ends up voting liberal. “The arguments of liberals are more often grounded in reason and fact,” the Illinois Democrat wrote in “The Audacity of Hope,” a memoir published last year. “Much of what I absorbed from the sixties was filtered through my mother, who to the end of her life would proudly proclaim herself an unreconstructed liberal.” Obama has a 95 percent liberal rating from Americans for Democratic Reform, a liberal advocacy group that ranks all members...

    Are the American people ready for an elected president who was educated in a Madrassa as a young boy and has not been forthcoming about his Muslim heritage? This is the question Sen.

An investigation of Mr. Obama by political opponents within the Democratic Party has discovered that Mr. Obama was raised as a Muslim by his stepfather in Indonesia. Sources close to the background check, which has not yet been released, said Mr. Obama, 45, spent at least four years in a so-called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia.

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Sunday that the federal government's handling of Hurricane Katrina has been "inadequate," and said more aid, including police officers and firefighters, was en route to Louisiana. The Republican mayor, who usually treads carefully when it comes to commenting on the Bush administration, told reporters that the president himself was aware of the government's failings. "It would appear, and I think the president acknowledged, that the federal government's response has been inadequate," Bloomberg told reporters at City Hall.

    Washington- Senate Judiciary Committee member Mike DeWine, who was mentioned by Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid on Tuesday as a potential Supreme Court pick, doesn't anticipate being nominated. "I'm on the short list, just the wrong short list," he joked. DeWine, an Ohio Republican, compared the intense public kibitzing over Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's successor to "watching the speculation for the next pope." Because O'Connor was a swing vote in many cases, DeWine said, whoever fills her slot could shape the court for years to come. He said he plans to scrutinize case decisions and writings of whomever Bush selects...

    Apparently Senator Edwards had a close brush with the truth some months back, though like the proverbial "broken clock" that shows the correct time twice each day, he didn't linger for long on the cusps of reality. According to Edwards, we live in a split society, which he described as the "two Americas." Edwards attempted to portray this nation as being divided between the "haves" and the "have nots," by which he delineated between those who are financially well-off, as opposed to others who struggle to make ends meet. However, another far more insidious divide exists across the nation, as...

Number-crunching economists such as Ray Fair and Nigel Gault agree with me. Their econometric models are predicting Bush will take 56% to 58% of the two-party vote. As of...

    WASHINGTON - A feisty President Bush yesterday took a broad swipe at Democratic vice presidential pick John Edwards - branding him as a lightweight lacking enough experience to step into the Oval Office. Bush's jab was in response to a reporter's question about how Edwards, a freshman senator with a dynamic stump style, compared to his own running mate, Vice President Dick Cheney, who has decades of Washington experience but little flash. ``Dick Cheney can be president,'' Bush snapped. ``Next.'' The president's sharp words, coming just one day after Kerry announced his running mate with a burst of favorable news...

    Wednesday, July 7, 2004 John Edwards: Sen. Lightweight Posted: July 7, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern By Hugh Hewitt © 2004 WorldNetDaily.com So it is John Edwards, Sen. Lightweight. Kerry's slippage in the polls dictated that he pick someone with flash and energy, but this choice won't wear well because the country knows it is wartime, and it knows that John Edwards is no more prepared to run a war than he is to run a small state or a large corporation. He spent four years in the Senate positioning himself to run for president and two years running. That's it. Aside from...

    I received the installation CD today for Microsoft Office Powerpoint 2003. Of course, it comes with no written instructions, and I'm rather stumped as to how to proceed further. Example; I try and import a 'folder' with several pics and I get either none, or just one - during my little test runs. Any tips from fellow FReepers?...My goal is to be able to take a series of digital pics and snaz them up a bit, and look like a wizard. I'm failing tonight in the wizard department! It appears I've installed correctly, but now I'm stalled.

    Feminists should welcome the entry of John Edwards, our first official hunk, into the presidential race. This holds the promise, at long last, of a gender equity of sorts. Imagine the first news reports coming out of an Edwards White House. "President Edwards, wearing a blue Armani suit and red Garcia tie, unveiled a new hairstyle today." Women have complained that such superfluous items as dress and appearance have long been staples when reporting on women politicians. There was a time when Hillary Clinton's new hairdo elicited more reaction than her work on that infamous health care plan. And please...

    MORE EXPLORE FEATURES Lost in Space Problems with the space shuttle and the International Space Station have knocked NASA off its moorings By Mark Alpert Image: NASAALBATROSS? The International Space Station. Critics of human spaceflight have a saying: "If God had wanted people to go into space, He would’ve given them more money." This reworked adage has never seemed more appropriate than during the recent battles in Washington, D.C., over the future of the space shuttle and the International Space Station (ISS). Both programs are facing severe cutbacks as NASA’s new administrator, Sean O’Keefe, tries to bring order to...
