    The Washington Examiner ^ | 05/13/10 | Mark Hemingway
    According to Pence’s press release: “The American people are fed up with taxpayer-funded bailouts and deserve to know we are bailing out Greece and possibly other European countries. If the Obama Administration has its way, the U.S. will contribute to a nearly trillion dollar bailout of European countries with economic crises that are a direct result of wasteful government spending. “This legislation would require that countries like Greece cut spending and put their own fiscal house in order, instead of looking to the United States for a bailout. We face record unemployment and a debt crisis of our own, and...

    President Barack Obama announced today his administration would pursue to expand offshore drilling (Reuters): President Barack Obama will announce on Wednesday he will stick with a Bush-era plan to drill oil and natural gas off the coast of Virginia but will not pursue energy development in waters off the U.S. Northeast and the West Coast that were recently opened to drilling. Obama, who wants Congress to move a stalled climate change bill, has sought to reach out to Republicans by signaling he is open to allowing offshore drilling, providing coastlines are protected. Allowing offshore drilling also would create jobs and...

    Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.) fired back at House Republicans who questioned his ethics this week, calling the GOP officials who crafted a critical press release “pathetic.” The House GOP Conference, headed by Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.), issued a policy paper on its website Tuesday that referred to Dodd as a “Friend of Angelo.” That is a reference to a special VIP program established by former Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo, who has been charged with civil fraud and insider trading by federal investigators. The policy paper, titled, “Taxpayers should not trust the ‘Friend of Angelo,’” details what Republicans views as flaws...

    U.S. Rep. Mike Pence set a clear task before Republicans Wednesday night in Iowa City: "Give the president and Obamacare the kind of welcome that it is going to deserve across the country." The Indiana Republican, who is believed to be a 2012 presidential contender, said that if Iowans fulfill their task that he guarantees that the rest of the nation will follow suit. "I don't think there is any mistake that the president has chosen Iowa City in your fair state to start making his case for this government take-over of health care to the American people," said Pence,...

    The number three Republican in the House of Representatives today told reporters, "I never thought I'd live to see the day that an American administration would denounce the Jewish state of Israel for rebuilding Jerusalem." Pence is a strong supporter of Israel and his remarks came just before a bipartisan meeting with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Speaking of bipartisanship, Pence has penned a letter with Democrat Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. asking the administration to focus less attention on where Israelis are building settlements and pay more attention on Iran's push for nuclear weapons. Here's a copy of the letter,...

    Worth posting if only because one of the few things the left and right agree on today is that Obama’s executive order is essentially meaningless. Liberals, per dKos, David Corn, and Ezra Klein, think the Senate bill already does what Stupak wants it to do by maintaining the status quo on abortion funding, which means the EO is gratuitous. Pence thinks the Senate bill is a sharp break from the status quo, but since an EO is flimsy to begin with and an EO on this subject from someone as adamantly pro-choice as The One is even flimsier, it’s not...

    Like two heavyweight fighters slugging it out in a battle royal, President Obama and tea party activists will square off once again Tuesday, as grassroots activists host a "We the People Surge" in the nation's capital in protest of the massive planned overhaul of U.S. healthcare. Some tea party leaders expect 10,000 to 15,000 protesters. Others believe the crowd will be even larger. The rally comes at a critical time. The debate over healthcare reform has become the focus of national attention, with Democratic leaders proclaiming again and again that they're closing in on the votes they need to cram...

    Tea Party Amendment In what promises to be a consequential election year, Republican leaders are eager to get the masses who make up the Tea Party movement on their side. But Tea Partyers remember that the GOP Congress and GOP president themselves spent way too much — even expanding the fiscally doomed Medicare entitlement program. Some Tea Party leaders even accuse Republican spendthrifts of practicing socialism. GOP Reps. Jeb Hensarling of Texas, Mike Pence of Indiana and John Campbell of California may have just hit on a way of focusing the energy of a movement that's been accused by Democrats...

He will instead seek reelection in the House. "I am staying for two reasons," he wrote. "First because I have been given the responsibility to shape the Republican comeback as a member of the House Republican Leadership and, second, because I believe Republicans will win back the majority in the House of Representatives in 2010." Pence was probably the GOP's best chance to flip Bayh's seat, though former Congressman John Hostettler and...

Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) this year, and will instead seek re-election to the House. Republicans have grown increasingly bullish on their chances at winning Bayh's Indiana Senate seat in light of the worsening political environment for Democrats, but don't have a strong candidate willing to take him on — at least not yet. Pence led Bayh in a Rasmussen poll released yesterday, and Bayh polled under 50 percent against two other possible Republican challengers. Here's Pence's letter: Open Letter...

Bill Clinton held the record before now, but Obama bested him by 12 points: The 65 percentage-point gap between Democrats’ (88%) and Republicans’ (23%) average job approval ratings for Barack Obama is easily the largest for any president in his first year in office, greatly exceeding the prior high of 52 points for Bill Clinton.

"We can have these debates about a national energy tax and a government takeover of health care," he told The Washington Times' "American's Morning News" radio show on Tuesday. "But back home in Indiana, folks are saying the focus in Washington, D.C., should be on jobs --- not more government, more spending, more bailouts and more borrowing." He even suggested Mr....

    The President’s Troubling Trend on the World Stage by Rep. Mike Pence Posted 09/29/2009 ETUpdated 09/29/2009 ET On the eve of his address to the United Nations, President Obama warned world leaders meeting in New York City of the “irreversible catastrophe” of climate change. The president did so while many of the critical confrontations boiling over on the world stage were laid on the back burner of the agenda at the United Nations. A look at the growing list of challenges sends a startling message that such concerns are the least of our problems. As we approach eight years...

    Minority Leader John Boehner spent much of last week trying to persuade a stubborn Rep. Joe Wilson to apologize to the House — telling associates he needed to “get to” Wilson before the weekend to elicit an apology. But as the days dragged on, Boehner had to back off: Wilson’s spine was stiffened by $1.5 million in campaign contributions, the Democrats’ anti-Wilson rhetoric had become increasingly extreme, and the South Carolina Republican was rapidly accumulating support from the conference’s dominant right wing. “At some point, he realized he had no choice but to get behind Wilson because that’s where his...

    With tens of thousands of conservative protesters expected to gather in Washington on Saturday for a "Taxpayer March on D.C.," Republican officials are attempting to capitalize on a movement that lately has galvanized anti-Obama activists more effectively than the party's elected leaders in Washington. Searching for ways to compete with Democrats after two consecutive electoral drubbings, Republicans have moved past earlier uncertainty about the protesters, who organized nationwide rallies this summer that have threatened Democratic health-care plans and eroded President Obama's standing with the public. Several key Republican lawmakers, including House GOP Chairman Mike Pence of Indiana, have helped to...

    President Obama should demand the resignation of White House "green jobs czar" Van Jones, House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-Ind.) said Friday. Pence argued that Jones, who has been embroiled in two national controversies this week, should lose his job, and said that Congress should have more say over the dozens of "czars" installed by Obama since taking office. "Given recent revelations concerning the associations and statements of the president's green jobs czar, Van Jones should resign his position and if he is unwilling to do so, the president should demand his resignation," Pence said in a statement. "His...
