In the 2004 presidential campaign, it was the "swift boat" attack ads that became a central theme in the drive to defeat President George W. Bush's Democratic challenger, John Kerry. Four years later, when Barack Obama first...

    Crony capitalism at its most basic. Create onerous regulations and then give out exemptions to allies and constituents. The only wrinkle in this case is that the demographic subsection unburdening itself of ObamaCare is the same demographic subsection that has been most pointedly exuberant in advocating health care reform, with California Democrats even passing symbolic health care laws just like the ones that their most liberal supporters are now opting out of. On the federal level, of course, Former House speaker Nancy Pelosi was instrumental in securing ObamaCareís passage. And now, for a disproportionate number of businesses in Pelosiís San...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As the U.S. Supreme Court prepared to announce a decision on President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, one of the legislation's chief supporters predicted that it would be upheld by a 6-3 vote. Nancy Pelosi, the House of Representatives' Democratic leader, said she can see Chief Justice John Roberts siding with Obama in an anticipated divided Supreme Court ruling on Thursday. "I believe 6-3," Pelosi told the Reuters Washington Summit on Wednesday. She reasoned that a decision upholding the law would require the support of Justice Anthony Kennedy, a moderate conservative who often controls the outcome of...

    On Thursday, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) lashed out at Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), calling her recent comments regarding Fast and Furious "mind-numbingly stupid," and suggested she "schedule an appointment" with a doctor. On Thursday, Pelosi claimed that the contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder was part of a grand conspiracy to undermine his fight against voter suppression. ďThis is no accident. It is no coincidence. It is a plan on the part of the Republicans,Ē Pelosi said. ďItís really beneath the office of a member of Congress to say something that outrageous, and the fact that she was...

    U.S. Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi lobs yet another preposterous attack upon Republican House leaders, claiming that the House Committee Contempt Vote against Attorney General Eric Holder was manufactured by the leadership as a political payback for the Obama administrationís attempt to circumvent state laws which require display of state IDs when voting. In fact congressional Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C. has labeled this fanciful notion as, ďHogwash.Ē His fellow South Carolinian republican congressional representative Trey Gowdy went a few steps further and labeled Pelosiís delusional allegations, "mind-numbingly stupid," according to Fox News. It is abundantly clear that democrat leaders like...

    Exclusive: Joseph Farah explains why he won't buckle on Obama eligibility issue Itís clear Republicans in office and seeking office this year are not going to attack Barack Obama where he is most vulnerable Ė his very legitimacy to hold office under the Constitution as a ďnatural born citizen.Ē Heís not a natural born citizen. At least by his own admission, he was a dual citizen at birth. Of course, Obama is not known for telling the truth Ė or even the same lie. Prior to presidential ambitions he apparently got in 2007, he and his literary surrogates boasted of...
