    As he moves across Florida this week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is keeping two schedules. The public one, where he tells friendly, pro-business crowds what he sees as the dangers of Obamacare. And the invite-only one, where he seeks to reconnect with grass roots conservative activists who have questions — and some outrage — over his involvement in immigration reform. It's a two-step plan designed to repair Rubio's image, which has taken a beating in recent months, darkening the glow of his 2016 presidential The redemption tour continued Tuesday with stops in Tallahassee and Panama City and concludes today in...
  • Chicago Editorial Writer Suggests Obama Step Down After First Term [Run Hillary, Run!]

    President Obama's hometown newspaper has some startling advice for the commander-in-chief -- quit while you're behind. Citing the president's record-low approval ratings and unease in the Democratic base, a Chicago Tribune editorial writer recommended over the weekend that Obama need not feel obligated to run for a second term. Steve Chapman said that with Obama facing the prospect of a double-dip recession and, if he wins reelection, a gridlocked second term, it might be better to call it a presidency and let someone else -- maybe Hillary Clinton -- carry the Democratic mantle in the 2012 election.

    A new Gallup poll found registered voters are split over whether they would vote for President Obama in 2012.  Asked if they would vote for Obama or a generic Republican next year, 45 percent said they would support Obama and 45 percent said they would vote for the GOP candidate.  The poll, release Wednesday, underlines an opportunity for the large field of potential Republican candidates looking to defeat Obama on the heels of the Democrats' "shellacking" in the 2010 midterm elections, when they lost control of the House and six Senate seats. The results of the generic ballot survey are...

    President Obama, buffeted by criticism of his massive health care reform bill and election setbacks, said today he remained determined to tackle health care and other big problems despite the political dangers to his presidency. "I'd rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president," he told ABC's "World News" anchor Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview today. -snip- "You know, there is a tendency in Washington to believe our job description, of elected officials, is to get reelected. That's not our job description," Obama said. "Our job description is to solve problems and to help people."...

    In a bid to stiffen the resolve of wavering congressional Democrats, President Barack Obama boasted that he will put his reelection on the line if that is what it takes to get a bill passed and not “cower from confrontation like a former occupant of this office did when faced with similar opposition.” The “cowering” predecessor would be former President Bill Clinton who backed off from his administration’s health care legislation as opposition poured in from voters across the nation. Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explained that “as far as the President is concerned, his most important accomplishment—being the first African-American...

    OK- So what he really means is that Obama is willing to be a one term president if he can ram a government run health care system on America with a public option. From the video: President Obama would be willing to lose out on re-election chances in order to get health care, other "important things" done. Funny, George Bush risked his presidency on winning the War in Iraq. Barack Obama risks his presidency on swallowing America up under Big Chicago-style government.

    White House (CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama is “quite comfortable” with the prospect of being a one-term president in order to address the issues he is concerned about, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Friday. The comment came on the same day the president’s approval reached a new low, with only a 45 percent approval rating in the Zogby International poll released Friday. The poll said that 51 percent disapprove of the president’s job performance. The Real Clear Politics average of all polls puts the president approval rating at 52.2 percent.

    Via Breitbart, your transparent White House lie of the day. If this were remotely true, Obama never would have flirted with health-care co-ops or reached out to Grassley and Snowe for political cover on a phony “bipartisan” bill. He’d have drawn a line in the sand, demanded the public option that he’s been dreaming of for years, and told the Blue Dogs that they can either get on board or face reconciliation in the Senate and an all-out media blitz from the White House press shop and lefty PACs. (And yes, reconciliation is feasible, even though it would be difficult.)...

    OK, you're the young, mould-breaking, rockstar president of the US of A. You're on a visit to Britain that features (among other stuff) tea at Buck House, your first ever encounter with Her Maj. You've already been chastised, and not in a kind way, by the British press for presenting their prime minister with a gift of 25 Great American Movies on DVDs that may or may not have been compatible with British machinery. So now what do you give their octogenarian monarch who, you can safely assume, already has everything she could ever want? An iPod, of course. Engraved,...

    WASHINGTON -- A new poll by the independent Pew Research Center for the People & the Press has found that President Barack Obama's popular support is eroding, with his approval rating dropping below 60 percent. "President Barack Obama's approval rating has slipped, as a growing number of Americans see him listening more to his party's liberals than to its moderates, and many voice opposition to some of his key economic proposals," the Pew Center concluded.

    Gov. Rod Blagojevich denied Thursday that he's breaking a campaign pledge to devote 51 percent of new state revenue to education because he says he never made such a pledge in the first place. But Blagojevich's own 2002 campaign education plan specifically spelled out such a pledge, stating he would "commit 51 percent of new revenues to the classroom every year (and codify that pledge into law)." When asked about the pledge while meeting with the Daily Herald editorial board, Blagojevich said, "The word 'pledge' conjures up to me, you know, did you sign a pledge, did you promise to...

"I think it's old hat," Schwarzenegger said of the proposal, which some conservatives hope to place on the ballot by 2006, during an interview following a two-day conference with governors from Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and six Mexican states along the U.S. border. -snip- In 1994, Schwarzenegger was among a majority...
