  • Rep. Schakowsky introduces WORK Act allowing low-income moms the option that Ann Romney got

    Rep. Schakowsky (D) has introduced a bill, the WORK Act, Woman's Option to Raise Kids, giving federal assistance that would supplement TANF benefits (for the first 3 years), because under current law a woman (poor or not) raising kids does not have her work raising kids counted as real "work." Dems are attempting to use Ann Romney's words against her. Ann Romney said that staying home and raising kids is "work." and Dems are countering that by saying that it shouldn't be just people like Ann Romney that should get to stay home and "work." Schakowsky believes that poor women...

    RealClearPolitics had access to a meeting in Dover, Delaware Wednesday held by Newt Gingrich. During the get-together with members of the Delaware Tea Party, Gingrich, a former Fox News analyst, lambasted the channel. “I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through,” said Gingrich, adding, “Callista and I both believe CNN is less biased than FOX this year. We are more likely to get neutral coverage out of CNN than we are of FOX, and we’re more likely to get distortion out of FOX. That’s just a fact.” Gingrich revealed he’s been invited by CNN to one of...

    WILMINGTON, Del. — Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich returned to Delaware on Wednesday, hoping a victory in the state's primary on Tuesday will lend credibility to his flagging presidential campaign and his plans to shape the Republican national platform. Gingrich told a crowd of more than 100 people in Wilmington that re-electing President Obama would be "a disaster of the first order."
  • Gingrich: Romney’s mortgage deduction idea ‘class warfare’

    The Wall Street Journal - Market Watch ^ | April 18, 2012 | Robert Schroeder
    Republicans aren’t shy about lobbing the “class warfare” charge at Democrats. But now Newt Gingrich is aiming those words at Mitt Romney over Romney’s idea to scrap or limit the mortgage-interest deduction for second homes. Romney, the Republicans’ all-but-certain presidential nominee, told donors in Florida last weekend that he’d take away the deduction for high-income earners. His campaign later said it was just an idea, not a hard-and-fast policy. But Gingrich took it as gospel. “Governor Romney’s proposal to limit certain tax deductions based on income, including the deduction for mortgage interest on second homes, is a surrender to the...

    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is scheduled to visit Fayetteville next week, according to local party leaders. Gingrich is to appear April 27 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the ballroom of the AIT building downtown to meet people and make a speech. The event is free and open to the public, said Mikele Haywood, the Cumberland County Republican Party's events campaign chairwoman. Although front-runner Mitt Romney appears to have an insurmountable lead to win the Republican nomination, Gingrich and Texas Rep. Ron Paul have remained in the race. Gingrich, a former U.S. House speaker, has made several visits to...

    So why is Newt Gingrich still in the GOP presidential race? So he can issue statements like the one below, which arrived this morning: “Governor [Mitt] Romney’s proposal to limit certain tax deductions based on income, including the deduction for mortgage interest on second homes, is a surrender to the class warfare rhetoric of the Left.” Over the weekend, at a fundraiser in Florida, Romney was overheard saying that he might seek to limit tax deductions for second home mortgages and eliminate the Department of Housing and Urban Development. But apparently, it’s far too early for a Sistah Souljah moment....

    “Conservatives believe in the classical American definition of fairness – that every American be treated equally under the law… “Governor Romney’s tax proposal violates that principle by giving politicians the power to carve out exceptions in the law for people of certain incomes. Furthermore, it sets the stage for future tax increases, as politicians will continually try to decrease the income threshold where citizens will no longer be able to avail themselves of the deductions.”

    Conservatives laugh at sheep and useful idiots. We laughed at Democrats when their "Anybody but Bush" got them Kerry. They thought that "Anybody but" works. It doesn't. The electorate needs something to vote FOR and not against. It's called "inspiration" and "something to believe in". Fear is not a belief. It is an unbridled emotion that clouds judgment and has been on full display lately. Romney is not yet the nominee but some believe it is a done deal. The controllers, the RNC and the MSM, want you to believe that. It flies in the face of everything we know....

    TRUE COLORS TIME If you listened closely to Sarah tonight on Levin’s program, she was pretty much endorsing Romney. I suspect she will hold her cards, won’t jump into the fray until the convention, where she will get maximum exposure for her particular agenda. And then she will play the good citizen role and support Romney. I’ve been worried about her since she showed up so ungraciously during the summer to rain on the parade of some of the more conservative candidates… The same applies to her as everyone else... Not fighting, not helping Newt right now, is the same...

    Appearing before the National Rifle Association annual meeting this afternoon, Newt Gingrich called for a new United Nations treaty that would give the right to bear arms to every person on the planet. This proposed treaty would counter the United Nations Small Arms Treaty currently supported by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. After Gingrich’s speech concluded, NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox came out on stage and said “The Gingrich Treaty…I like that.” The Daily Beast noted that Newt’s reception from the crowd of 5,000 people was more enthusiastic than Governor Romney’s. If the Republican presidential nomination were decided by the...
