    The Hill ^ | January 16, 2014 | Rebecca Shabad
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Former first lady Barbara Bush reiterates in a new interview that presidents don’t have to be members of political dynasties. "If we can't find more than two or three families to run for office, that's silly, because there are great governors and great eligible people to run," Bush says in an interview that will air Monday on C-SPAN. "And I think that the Kennedys, Clintons, Bushes — there are just more families than that. And I'm not arrogant enough to think that we alone are raising" presidential candidates. Her son Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida, is considered a potential...

    JACKSON, Miss. - At a fundraiser at a country club in Mississippi this evening that was expected to raise a record-breaking $1.7 million, Mitt Romney defended the Republican Party against its reputation as the "party of the rich" explaining that really, it is a party focused on helping the poor. "We're accused, by the way - in our party - of being the party of the rich," Romney said. "And it's an awful moniker, because that's just not true. We're the party of people who want to get rich. And we're also the party of people who want to care...

    One of the great legends of political consulting is the Dog Food Problem: an apocryphal tale of a company that had the best packaging, the best advertising, the best marketing. But there was only one problem: the dog wouldn't eat it. Forevermore we should no longer call it a Dog Food Problem. We should call it a Mitt Romney Problem. In truth Romney is still probably the most likely GOP nominee. He has the most money, the best organization, the most endorsements, and the best hair. There is only one thing wrong with the Mitt Romney campaign: Mitt Romney. If...

    Mitt Romney's presidential campaign would like to be focusing its attacks on Democratic President Barack Obama around now. But after failing to seize control of the Republican nomination race on "Super Tuesday," Romney cannot shake off rival Rick Santorum, whom he criticized on Thursday as a political insider. Opening up a new front against Santorum, the Romney campaign accused him of being a lobbyist in his home state of Pennsylvania even before he went to Washington in 1991. Romney's campaign also attacked Santorum for holding regular meetings with lobbyists as a Senate leader, part of the Republican "K Street Project"...

    Haley Barbour is all about Newt Gingrich Continue Reading "I'm crazy about Newt," Barbour told reporters after a breakfast at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce after he was asked about Gingrich's likely presidential announcement. "We've been friends for a very long time." Gingrich is considering a presidential run and has been the focus of intense speculation this week after it was reported that he planned to announce the formation of an exploratory committee on Thursday. His spokesman, Rick Tyler, issued a strong statement Tuesday night insisting Gingrich would not use his Thursday trip to Georgia to make a presidential announcement.....

    President Barack Obama is one of America's best politicians ever, according to one of his potential rivals for re-election in 2012. "The president is one of the greatest politicians in the history of the United States," Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press."Barbour's comments came during a discussion of Wisconsin's budget battle - a fight that's sparked widespread protests as Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has tried to curtail collective bargaining rights for public employees. Obama is "quiet [on the issue] because most Americans know this has to be done,"

    Mississippi Gov Haley Barbour will visit the Republican-heavy Upstate of South Carolina Wednesday for two private events with local GOP officials to discuss a potential presidential run, POLITICO has learned. Barbour will meet with Republicans first in Greenville and then in Spartanburg. The closed-door gatherings will include party leaders and current and former elected officials, according to a South Carolina source familiar with the events. Barbour's trip to the first-in-the-South Palmetto State illustrates his increasing seriousness about a presidential bid. His appearance in the two Upstate cities comes just a few weeks after he appeared in Columbia for the inauguration...

    JACKSON -- The good news for Haley Barbour is that the left wing is after him. That means he’s being taken as a serious contender. The ruckus over Barbour’s latest interview is a typical example of taking individual words out of context. For instance, Barbour is being blasted for saying that something -- we don’t know what -- “wasn’t that bad.” The liberal bloggers argue that Barbour was saying the Citizens Council and the KKK “wasn’t that bad” but, in fact, Barbour said no such thing. Here’s is the exact text of the Weekly Standard article. “In interviews Barbour doesn’t...

Palin said it is important to take advantage of the opportunity the elections present to mitigate President Barack Obama's pro-abortion agenda. Palin said Obama has been responsible for "the biggest advance of the abortion industry in America" thanks to the ObamaCare bill that includes abortion funding, she said, according to CNN. She added Obama is "the most pro-abortion president to ever occupy the White House," "That's why it's essential that...

    President Obama repeatedly said yesterday during his press conference on the Gulf oil spill that he takes responsibility for the disaster. Nevertheless, Republicans are pounding the president for failing to step up as a leader during the crisis. Some are also questioning his decision to extend for six months a moratorium on new offshore drilling plans. Millions of gallons of oil have flowed into the Gulf of Mexico since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded on April 20. Oil company BP, which was operating the rig, is responsible for the cost of the clean up and containment efforts under the...

    Like Mike Huckabee did in the 2008 GOP Primary, a dark horse candidate from the South could rise up to win some big races in 2012. But who could that little known candidate be? I’ll offer some suggestions about who could be a household name in two years. In my last column “Why Republicans are in trouble in 2012” I described the woes of the Grand Old Party for 2012. A combination of weak candidates with surprisingly thin resumes and potential nominees with bad luck in their state’s history could hand what might be a winnable race against President Obama...

What are their strengths and weaknesses? Are they smokers or non-smokers? The most important answers...

    Every single pundit and political analyst in America today is spinning the result of yesterday’s debate towards his own personal ideological preference. Generally though, most do agree that John McCain did a lot better than Barack Obama, because he was able to continually (and effectively) get his main talking point through, “Mr. Obama doesn’t understand”, without appearing condescending or angry. McCain was able to constantly tell the audience that the problem with Obama was not his “bad faith” or lack of motivation, but simple naivete and inexperience. Barack Obama, on his part, was simply unable to get his talking point...

    It looks like Obama has firmly declared he will be at the debate, while McCain has allowed a little wiggle room by "requesting" the debate be postponed -- and "challenging" Obama to agree. Regardless, this "staring contest" over whether or not to debate tomorrow night, could have real political ramifications. McCain's opening salvo was shrewd and bold, but Obama's comeback was good, too ("Part of the president's job is to deal with more than one thing at once.") Following are some thoughts on how McCain might respond to Obama's insistence on continuing with the debate: 1. McCain could still show...

    The GOP contest for Rep. Chip Pickering’s (R-Miss.) seat looks to be a two-candidate race, according to a poll conducted for businessman David Landrum’s campaign in late January. Former state Sen. Charlie Ross leads Landrum 30 to 24 percent ahead of the March 11 primary, with no other candidate in the double digits. If no candidate reaches 50 percent in the primary, a runoff will be held April 1. A previous poll suggested that Ross, who ran for lieutenant governor last year and is the only well-known political figure in the race, held a large early lead. But Landrum has...

Espy stood by Barbour and the governor’s wife, Marsha, during a news conference at the state Capitol.

    Republicans are likely to retain the Mississippi Congressional District being left open because of the retirement of Rep.

Instead, he will serve out his term but not seek reelection. GOP insiders describe the district as overflowing with potential Republican candidates and expect a multi-candidate primary. Atop the list are two statewide names: Tate Reeves and Amy Tuck. Reeves is Mississippi's 32 year old state Treasurer, the first Republican to hold the office since Reconstruction....

As usual the "News Media's" thinking is neither conventional nor wise. What all the various activists miss is the reality of American Exceptionalism.

  • Heinz Foundation Bankrolled Group Protesting Bush 9/11 Ads

    03/07/2004 6:25:25 AM PST · by MNJohnnie · 11 replies · 4,351+ views Well isn't this intresting. The "objective news media" supposed 9-11 surviors protesting Bush's ads are actually anti-war stooges financed by John Kerry's wife. Please take a moment and vist the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC etc to email the Omsbudsman, the Publisher, the News Editor and demand to know why they allowed clearly partisan advocates of Kerry's Presidential Campaign were presented on their "News" programs with no reference to their ties to the Kerry camp. We absolutely must demand the "News Media" be held accountable for their free advertising for the Kerry camp.

    03/04/2004 11:30:46 AM PST · by MNJohnnie · 3 replies · 5,816+ views Here is a link to the 1st three Bush Re-election ads. As expected the DNC directed its "Objective News Media" mouthpieces at CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC to generate phoney hysteria about these ads. Compared to the demogagery and lies spread by the Kerry Campaign, and the DNC about Bush for the last 6 months, this is probably the mildest sets of ads that have run so far this political season. Please email this link to every person on you email contact list. We need to get as many people as possible to see these ads. They are...

    CORINTH - Northeast Mississippi voters will decide who will serve as governor for the next four years, Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Jim Herring predicted Thursday at a Rotary Club address in Corinth. "Whoever wins in Northeast Mississippi will be the governor," Herring said. "It is the battleground area of this state. If the Republicans establish dominance in Northeast Mississippi this year, we will win." Herring, who has served as head of the state party for three years, said his analysis of state elections four years ago showed Republican Mike Parker could have won the governor's race if the party had...
