    The anti-Trump super-PAC that spent more than $2 million slamming the billionaire in Iowa is preparing to launch a new secret weapon in New Hampshire -- John McCain. "Probably the only significant strategy shift is we are going to remind voters in New Hampshire about the disgraceful things that he said about John McCain," said the leader of Our Principles PAC, Katie Packer, who was Mitt Romney's deputy campaign manager in 2012. Trump offended many Republicans when he mocked McCain's Vietnam War service last July, saying "he was a war hero because he was captured. ... I like people who...

    On the campaign trail ahead of the 2012 New Hampshire primary, Mitt Romney didn't always come across as the most freewheeling candidate for president. At event after event around the Granite State, the former Massachusetts governor and business executive didn't waver in his focus on President Obama and the pace of the economic recovery. Romney might not have been as wooden as caricatures of him suggested, but he wasn't lighting up the trail as a charismatic leader. He had traded the neckties of his 2008 bid for jeans and rolled-up sleeves, but he still seemed pretty buttoned down. As a...

    Mitt Romney has bluntly criticized the Republican Party for not supporting a raise in the nations' minimum wage. The former governor of Massachusetts, who was the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, told the Washington Post his party is missing the boat in opposing a wage boost touted heavily by President Barack Obama. "As a party we speak a lot about deregulation and tax policy, and you know what? People have been hearing that for 25 years, and they're getting tired of that message," Romney said in a recent interview with the newspaper. "I think we're nuts not to raise the...

The big prizes among these states are Florida and New York with their 29 Electoral votes.

For those who missed it, McCain said yesterday that Cruz may not be eligible because he was born in Canada. Of the course the Arizona senator -- who himself was born in the Panama Canal Zone -- knows full well that Cruz is a natural-born citizen, but that doesn't matter; he hates Cruz, which is why he does everything in his power to derail the Texan's presidential campaign. If he has to lie to do so, so be it....

    A modern-day variation on "better red than dead" . . . Joe Scarborough says that Haley Barbour and many Republican leaders would "much rather" have Hillary be president than to let Trump win and represent the GOP. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough said that if it looks like Trump will win the nomination, something Scarborough sees as very plausible, he envisions Mitt Romney or Michael Bloomberg jumping into the race as a third-party candidate. Not really with the goal of winning, but rather to "take a bullet," splitting the vote and denying Trump the White House. View the video here.

Sane people everywhere asked Why would you run a candidate like Romney, who cant mount a successful attack against ObamaCare, when its your number one campaign issue. Of course, we all know how things turned out. Romney continued to call for...

    When Mitt Romney, the failed presidential candidate in the 2012 presidential election, pointed a scolding finger at Ted Cruz, the journal senator from Texas and current presidential candidate thought he must have died and gone to heaven. Romney is respected as a good man who might have made a pretty decent president had he not be such a bad politician. The main rap against Romney from the conservative base was that he was too gentlemanly and too timid, especially in the third debate, to have prevailed in an election that was very winnable. The National Journal reported on Friday that...

    In conversations with his campaign staffers and allies, Cruz often points to Romney as the embodiment of a timid, weak Republican Party. And in a private speech in May to the Council for National Policy, a secretive group of top conservative donors and activists, Cruz colorfully described Romney as the worst possible candidate Republicans could have nominated in 2012. "We have had three elections since President Obama was elected. Two of them2010 and 2014were national referenda on Obamacare. It was the No. 1 issue, twice. Both elections were tsunami, tidal-waves for Republicanshistoric victories," Cruz said, according to an audio recording...

    The Tea Partyer was secretly recorded bashing Romney as the worst GOP presidential candidate on Earth.When Tea Party firebrand and Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz lashed out Mitt Romney yesterday for daring to condemn his over-the-top charge that the Obama administration had become the world’s leading state sponsor of terror by negotiating a nuclear nonproliferation deal with Iran, it was hardly the first time the Texas senator has attacked his party’s 2012 presidential nominee. According to a new report in the National Journal, during a private speech back in May to the Council for National Policy, a secretive group of...

    The International Brotherhood of Teamsters endorsed President Obama Monday, calling his likely Republican opponent Mitt Romney a "vulture capitalist" whose election would amount to a "fox guarding the henhouse." "He represents everything that is wrong with our financial system. He made his money as CEO of Bain Capital by destroying U.S. businesses, sending good-paying American jobs overseas and filling his pockets with millions while putting workers out on the street," Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa said in a release. The organization's endorsement comes with a promise to put "boots on the ground" in all fifty states. "Working families know who is...

    A scoutmaster with a Boy Scout troop in South Jersey was "grooming" a young boy for sexual purposes by buying him pricey gifts, officials said Thursday. The Cape May man, Frank Thomson, was arrested and charged Tuesday with luring an 11-year-old boy after a concerned citizen tipped off authorities earlier this month to suspicious activity between the two, Cape May County Prosecutor Robert L. Taylor said in a release. During several interviews with 68-year-old man, authorities say they discovered a separate incident several years ago where Thomson sexually assaulted a young boy. Additional charges were brought against Thomson on Wednesday....

    Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, criticized Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Thursday for his harsh rhetoric against the Iran nuclear deal. Cruz, a 2016 presidential candidate, has repeatedly warned in recent days that the agreement would mean President Barack Obama's administration is essentially sponsoring terrorism. "If this deal goes through, the Obama administration will become the leading financier of terrorism against America in the world," Cruz said in a July 15 Fox News interview, for example. He added: "I've heard this referred to before as the 'Jihadist Stimulus Bill.'" But Romney argued on Twitter that Cruz's comments undermine...

    Abortion is legal, but taxpayers shouldnt have to pay for it. Democrats have been picking fight after fight in the culture wars, believing they have the upper hand with socially liberal younger votes. But that assumption is now being tested in the wake of videos of Planned Parenthood doctors blithely discussing the harvesting of fetal body parts. The videos, secretly recorded by anti-abortion activists, show the doctors discussing, among other things, the best way to ensure a less crunchy aborted fetus. Its gruesome stuff, especially for anyone who has viewed the sonogram of an unborn child. Planned Parenthoods defenders are...

    Yesterday, the Nation Board of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) ended their ban on gay leaders. This brings up concern for churches who host BSA meetings in their facilities. The Mormon Church voiced concern over the new policy and was able to come to an agreement with the BSA and the new membership policy. Under the new policy, any church who hosts BSA meetings and believe marriage is between a man and a woman will be able to choose the leaders for their local units. They can choose leaders who share their beliefs on marriage and can [restrict]positions to...

The decision was approved by 79 percent of the board.

    On Fox News Sunday, former Hewlett-Packard CEO and Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina had a heated debate with the EMILYs List Vice President Jess McIntosh about the recent undercover videos that exposed Planned Parenthood doctors discussing the price of fetal tissue. Fiorina said, This has nothing to do with whether youre pro-choice or pro-life. This has to do with the moral foundation of our nation. If a woman was sitting outside of Planned Parenthood in her OB-GYNs office looking at this ultrasound at the same point in her pregnancy, her doctor would say to her look at your baby. Look...
