    Carly Fiorina wants you to look at her face. The superPAC supporting her campaign released a new video, "Faces," hitting back at Donald Trump's recent comments on her appearance..."Ladies, look at this face, and look at all of your faces — the face of leadership," Fiorina opens the video. The video cuts together Fiorina's speech to the Federation of Republican Women in Arizona on Friday with the faces of several women. Fiorina goes on to describe the Republican Party as the "party of women's suffrage" and says the Democratic Party should take note that women "are not a special interest...
  • Bill Clinton says, "You're ready for Mary Burke" in new ad

    Madison -- Fresh off a visit to Milwaukee to campaign for Mary Burke, former President Bill Clinton has cut an ad for the Democratic candidate for governor. "If you're ready for a governor who will get up every day thinking about your family and building the middle class, you're ready for Mary Burke," Clinton says in the ad. The spot features the former president speaking directly into the camera -- a technique often used by Burke's opponent, Republican Gov. Scott Walker. The election is Tuesday.

    There’s conservatism in our culture, if you’re willing to see it. I did not watch the 2013 Super Bowl and probably will not watch this year’s contest, either, being as I am more or less the effete Manhattan-dwelling, Whole Foods–shopping, theater-going caricature, though I’ve never been to one of those Georgetown cocktail parties that our more populist comments-section denizens are forever going on about. Okay, National Review did host Rand Paul at Café Milano once, but I don’t think that’s exactly what they have in mind. I do like Super Bowl commercials, though, and the 2013 game included one that...

    Two recent ads illustrate the great cultural divide in this nation and which parties and presidential candidates represent these competing worldviews. In the handling of the economy and national security, President Obama has shown he's not capable of being the adult in the room. After four years of perpetual campaigning and cheerleading for his pet projects, he still isn't prepared to deal soberly with the consequences of his ideological indulgences. His community organizing fantasy has been to remake America in his more socialistic image, and in the process, he's taken the nation dangerously close to financial ruin. Yet like the...

    I suppose we all thought the Obama reelection effort had jumped the shark when we had Lena Dunham telling us all about how great our "first time" (voting, that is) would be with Obama. But no. This is worse. So, so much worse. Courtesy of Allahpundit over at Hot Air, here's a creepy video of children singing about the alleged horrors of a Romney presidency:The Future Children Project A sampling of the lyrics: Imagine an America Where strip mines are fun and free Where gays can be fixed And sick people just die And oil fills the sea   We...

    As Americans are beginning to process Mitt Romney's lopsided debate victory on Wednesday night, the Republican nominee has pulled ahead in three crucial swing states, according to a trio of surveys from pollster We Ask America:   Ed Morrissey notes the slightly generous (to Republicans) sample splits in Florida and Virginia, although the Ohio partisan breakdown looks about right.  To buttress this data, Rasmussen has released two new surveys -- his data shows Romney ahead by one point in Virginia (49/48), and down by a point in Ohio (50/49).  But consider this item within the Buckeye State poll:   But among the...
  • A Strategy for Romney That Could Actually Win the Presidency

    08/16/2012 6:38:31 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | August 16, 2012 | Matt Towery
    I have already gone on record saying that the Romney campaign has not been mean and tough enough. The Obama crowd, which knows it is important to define an opposing candidate in a negative light before the candidate really gets to introduce himself to the public, has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at both Romney and Paul Ryan to accomplish that goal. There is now some evidence that the Romney camp and its supporters are getting more aggressive in their efforts to define President Obama. But while they have not reached the butt-kicking Lee Atwater take-no-prisoners effort of years...

    Yesterday, I urged the Romney campaign to go on "aggressive, sustained offense" over Medicare.  Not only is the bipartisan Romney-Ryan plan to save the social safety net and control the national debt entirely defensible, President Obama's previous actions and current non-plan are eminently assailable.  Today, Team Romney has demonstrated that it is fully prepared to throw a hard punch.  Up next?  Sustain it.  This is excellent:   Paid InEvery statement in this ad is factually accurate.  I'm told it will air across numerous swing states in "strong rotation."  (Unspoken, but  obvious: Florida.)  The truth is that Barack Obama slashed more...

    Greg pulled the clip last night and Allahpundit wrote it up, but it's worth revisiting for a few reasons.  I'll let AP set the stage:   The first 3:45 is just background stuff, so feel free to skip it, and (b) the rest of it represents quite possibly the most sustained bout of skepticism on cable TV towards an Obama mouthpiece that Team Hopenchange has had to endure in four years. If you can’t watch it all, just watch Burton for two or three minutes starting at 4:15. The Obama campaign has been shamelessly lying its collective ass off about...

    The Obama campaign's dishonest attack ads portraying Mitt Romney as a "corporate raider" and a "pioneer" of shipping American jobs overseas have been debunked by multiple independent fact checkers.  WaPo called the first such spot "misleading, unfair and untrue," and found "no evidence" to support Obama's allegations.  Undeterred by facts and unconstrained by truth, Chicago has produced a second ad on the very same subject, repeating the very same discredited claims.  An NBC News affiliate in Florida examined the new spot and reached the same conclusion as the other truth-seeking entities: The ad is false Truth-Test: Obama's Bain Attacks...
  • In latest Romney ad, Hillary Clinton attacks Obama

    In his effort to challenge President Barack Obama's attacks on his jobs record, Mitt Romney has enlisted a surprising new surrogate: Hillary Clinton. The Romney campaign quietly launched a new 30-second television ad Friday featuring footage of Clinton campaigning against Obama during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary, in which she accused Obama of lying about her record. "Shame on you, Barack Obama," Clinton says in the footage recycled in the Romney spot. The Romney ad uses the Clinton footage to back up a recent Washington Post Fact Checker item that said a recent Obama ad accusing Romney of outsourcing jobs...

The group's new ad entitled CREDIT has certainly schooled President Obama and his campaign on the dangers of playing politics with the anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden.

    Herman Cain huddled with Henry Kissinger in New York on Thursday, discussing foreign policy with the elder statesman. According to Mark Block, Cain’s chief of staff, the former secretary of state also commented on Cain’s notorious campaign video, which shows Block smoking. “Halfway through Mr. Cain’s conversation, Doctor Kissinger turns and points to me and says, ‘That smoking thing you did was brilliant.’ I sat there thinking, Dr. Henry Kissinger just said something I did was brilliant,” Block says. “We all got a good chuckle.” Block adds that Kissinger was impressed by Cain’s questions. “He told him that he meets...

    All this week, the Cain campaign and his supporters have linked his travails to Clarence Thomas’ experience at the Senate confirmation hearings twenty years ago; now a Cain super-PAC is making it official with their new web-only spot, “High-Tech Lynching.” The name comes directly from now-Justice Thomas’ rebuttal to sexual harassment allegations that popped up out of nowhere when Anita Hill testified in the Senate. Conservative outrage has not dimmed from that Howard Metzenbaum-sponsored spectacle, and the super-PAC clearly wants to channel it to his defense now: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO There are a couple of differences between...

    I think it's safe to say the Romney campaign is going for the kill with its latest attack on Rick Perry. The former Massachusetts Governor has already gotten a fair amount of mileage out of attacking his Texan rival from the left on Social Security, and from the right on immigration, but this new spot strikes at the heart of the Perry campaign's raison detre -- jobs, jobs, jobs:The Facts --Mitt Romney's political ad [snip] The spot's most striking image is a tumbleweed blowing along a deserted Texas highway. That's rich. It's intended to create the impression that Rick Perry's...

    HOUSTON - Democrat Barack Obama accused his rival Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday of trying to "scare up votes" with a television ad showing sleeping children and asking who would be more qualified to answer a national security emergency call at 3 a.m. "We've seen these ads before," the Illinois senator said while campaigning in Texas. "They're the kind that play on peoples' fears to scare up votes. Well, it won't work this time. Because the question is not about picking up the phone. The question is: What kind of judgment will you make when you answer?" To the sound...

    WASHINGTON - Just in time for the fall elections, government regulators are weighing whether to ease restrictions on when interest groups can run political ads within weeks of the voting. The Federal Election Commission on Thursday began circulating a proposal by Commissioner Hans von Spakovsky that would grant an exemption on airing ads outside a specific timeframe. The commission plans to take up the matter at an Aug. 29 meeting and could vote that day. If the commission approves the change, it could unleash a flood of election ad spending and open a new legal battle over the 2002 campaign...

    Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle -- embroiled in a tough re-election campaign in South Dakota -- distanced himself this week from documentary film director Michael Moore, whose "Fahrenheit 9/11" D.C. premiere he attended last month.     Mr. Daschle disputes a claim by Mr. Moore that he -- as the highest elected Democratic official in the nation -- hugged the filmmaker after the screening and promised to fight more vigilantly against the policies of President Bush.     "I know we senators all tend to look alike," Mr. Daschle said, according to the Rapid City Journal in South Dakota. "But I arrived late and...

    By JIM RUTENBERG and LAURA M. HOLSON Published: May 6, 2004 ASHINGTON, May 5 — Michael Moore took to television on Wednesday to denounce the Walt Disney Company's refusal to allow its Miramax division to distribute his new documentary criticizing President Bush, stoking a controversy that Hollywood executives expect to lure new distribution partners to the project and, eventually, audiences. As Mr. Moore sat for interviews with ABC News, CNN, "Entertainment Tonight" and elsewhere to discuss his film, "Fahrenheit 911," some Democrats in Washington said Disney was quashing dissent. Senator Frank R. Lautenberg of New Jersey called for hearings into...
