  • Is Obama Stupid?

    No one gets elected President by being stupid, unless of course the election is stolen in cities controlled by the Democratic Party, but one must also factor in the intelligence of nearly half of the voters who pull the Democratic Party lever no matter who the candidate may be. America is seriously divided between liberals and conservatives, but there are indications that even those who self-identify as liberals are having second thoughts as the result of the havoc ObamaCare has inflicted on their lives and the economy. Voters who self-identify as “independents” are the deciding factor in most elections. They...

    With Mitt Romney facing the biggest challenge to his presidential aspirations since he announced his candidacy, his aides acknowledged Friday what seemed unthinkable just seven days ago: He could lose the South Carolina primary. After arriving here last week fresh off of what seemed to be two victories in a row in Iowa and New Hampshire, Mr. Romney was suddenly confronting the prospect of leaving as the winner of only one of the first three nominating contests. Having been stripped of his victory in Iowa on Thursday after a recount that gave the state to Rick Santorum, Mr. Romney now...
  • 14 Bald-Faced Mitt Romney Flip-Flops That Were Dug Up By John McCain

    Last night, BuzzFeed got a hold of the 2008 John McCain campaign's research book on Mitt Romney. In over 200 painstakingly researched pages, it notes every slip-up, political fib, and potential liability for Romney going forward. And of course it picks apart all the times Romney has said one thing, and then when the political winds changed, said something else.

  • Mitt Romney and Ron Paul top new Iowa poll, but Rick Santorum has momentum

    Just saw the new poll from Iowa that shows the ultra liberal Willard Romney at 24 percent, leading as of right now. His lying attack ads on Gingrich, with an assist from Faux News have all but destroyed New Gingrich's chance of even placing in the top 3. Gingrich led two weeks ago, then came the lies from the father of homosexual marriage in America Romney. Never knew that Iowa republican voters were so liberal and so gullible as to believe this type of garbage, especially coming from the Amway salesman Romney. If Romney wins Iowa it means the state...

    My choice for President is Mitt Romney. I just shuddered at that statement. But there it is. There is the reality that 13 debates, months of bickering and intrigue, and countless discussions with conservative brethren have brought me. It is kind of a sad reality. Is this the best conservatives could do? So here has been my calculation for who I would support, from the beginning. First, the candidate must be electable and able to defeat Barack Obama, both electorally and intellectually. Second, they must broaden the base of the Republican Party, both on the conservative and moderate sides. Third,...

    I'm not hot for Mittens or Newt and what is so silly crazy about the RonPaulster. I'm going to save space by reminding you of Howie Carr,Michael Savage, etc... who have been on the air this last week of December 2011. Why can't people see that the Paulster is a no go? He'll never be prez & Thanks God! He's really wacky. This whole scenario of Mittens,Newt & the Paulster reminds me of Ross Perot. So there, you have it- a middleman candidate who actually represents NOTHING but only to antagonize the devil out of the Republican Party. Truth be...

    BETHLEHEM, N.H. (AP) - Mitt Romney is telling The Associated Press that he won't agree to debate Newt Gingrich one on one. The former Massachusetts governor says in an AP interview that he's not declining his rival's debate challenge because he's afraid to square off against Gingrich, as the former House speaker has implied. Rather, Romney says he doesn't want to define the contest as a "two-man race." And he says that debating Gingrich alone would be disrespectful to other candidates. Romney also is continuing to distance himself from the Washington standoff over the payroll tax-cut extension. He suggests it's...

    There are growing signs that the Republican primary campaign might be a long and muddy slog, a slow grind to accumulate delegates that doesn’t produce a nominee until spring or even summer; a contest more in the World War I style of Obama v. Clinton 2008 than the D-Day landing of George W. Bush 2000. But there’s also a scenario in which, one month from now, Mitt Romney suffers a blow so damaging that he might never recover: defeat in New Hampshire. For much of this year, Mitt Romney’s status as default front-runner in the Republican nomination fight rested in...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — A question about same-sex marriage from a Vietnam veteran led to a heated exchange with Mitt Romney on Monday morning as Mr. Romney was making the rounds at a restaurant here. After receiving the endorsement of Manchester’s mayor, Ted Gatsas, Mr. Romney greeted diners who were finishing up their breakfasts at Chez Vachon, and took a seat next to Bob Garon, 63, a veteran from Epsom, N.H. “I have a question for you,” said Mr. Garon, who was wearing a Vietnam veteran hat and a red flannel shirt with a pack of Basic cigarettes tucked into the...

    The Dysfunction Junction ^ | 12/10/11 | Kent McCarty
    On a variety of other issues, Romney has had to spend more time clarifying the disparities than explaining his solutions. In 1994, he “didn’t line up with the NRA.” In 2007, he’s a member of the NRA who has “been a hunter his whole life.” In 2007, he’s only been hunting twice in his whole life. In 2009, his book claimed the stimulus was useful in accelerating the recovery, though it went on to say it didn’t do so as well as tax cuts. In 2010, his book was edited to say “stimulus was a failure.” In 1994, Romney distanced...

    Christopher Poole, better known to the internet as 4chan’s moot, spoke at TED 2010’s “Provocation” session. moot, 21, was revealed as 4chan’s creator by the Wall Street Journal in 2008. He said in an interview with TIME on the same day his identity was disclosed that his “personal private life is very separate from (his) Internet life … There’s a firewall in between.” Which is fitting for a young man backed by an army known to the internet at large as “anonymous,” based in a community known primarily for it’s nameless, anything goes menu of pornography, schadenfraude and extraordinarily crass...

    As Terri Schiavo's parents grew more resigned to their daughter's fate, a federal appeals court said it would consider a new hearing on whether to reinsert the feeding tube that kept the severely brain-damaged woman alive for 15 years. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (search) did not indicate when a decision could be expected. The court order late Tuesday night allowed Bob and Mary Schindler (search) to file the emergency appeal, even though the court had set a March 26 deadline for doing so.
