  • Republicans must look to Cleveland to expand 2016 presidential chances

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 2, 2014 | Brett M. Decker and Van Hipp
    Republican National Committee officials announced recently that the party's nominating convention for the next presidential election will be held in Cleveland or Dallas. “These world-class cities have the ability to provide our next presidential nominee a launching pad that will put a Republican in the White House in 2016,” said site-selection chairman Enid Mickelsen. Given the ultimate goal, the GOP's big bash should be in Ohio. A lot more than one election is riding on the next campaign for the Oval Office. After losing the popular vote in five of the last six presidential contests, many of the Republican faithful...

    While the establishment hopes for a governor to emerge, he is quietly putting together a formidable operation.Republican strategists like to say the party's next nominee needs to hail from the GOP's gubernatorial ranks. It's a response to how unpopular Washington is—particularly the party's congressional wing—and a reflection of the party's strength in holding a majority of governorships. But another reason for the gubernatorial focus is to sidestep the one formidable candidate that gives the establishment heartburn: Sen. Rand Paul.

    credit Greg Nash Conservatives in Iowa and New Hampshire are preparing a hero’s welcome for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) after he showed up Senate Republican leaders during a crucial vote on the debt limit. Cruz infuriated his Senate Republican colleagues this week when he filibustered a clean bill to raise the debt limit. His objection forced Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) and 11 other Republicans to vote with Democrats to advance the legislation. But in Iowa and New Hampshire, two important presidential primary states, conservative activists are cheering Cruz’s stand and buzzing about a possible presidential run in 2016....

    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is already reaping benefits from his 21-hour stand against President Barack Obama's new health care law, as a new poll shows him leading the way for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination. Cruz garnered 20 percent support compared to 17 percent for Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., 14 percent for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, 11 percent for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and 10 percent each for Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., according to a survey by Public Policy Polling released Friday.

    New York Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano reintroduced a bill in Congress on Friday to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which places term limits on the U.S. presidency. The bill, which has been referred to committee, would allow Barack President Obama to become the first president since Franklin Roosevelt to seek a third term in office. H.J. Res. 15 proposes “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.”

He gave Romney an open end question, inviting him to address the Libya debacle. Romney chose to ignore the question and instead recite a monologue that sounded like a canned political speech. Romney then allowed Obama to interrupt him and take over the question that was actually posed to himself - not Obama. It became evident six minutes...

When Romney was governor and Staples needed revenue to make their numbers, Mitt helped them out. Just ask for women candidates for job positions. Immediate blinder orders would go out to Staples. Everyone won, Staples, Bain Capital and women hired for jobs. When this breaks and how Mitt used women to make revenue for Staples and personally put more money in the Cayman's, his campaign is over.

The incumbent president's often meandering answers, rife with halting pauses, as he took questions on domestic policy were in stark contrast to the energetic Romney, who often talked over debate moderator Jim Lehrer to aggressively tout his policies while criticizing Obama.

    When Harry Reid made the wildly incredible claim that Romney hadn’t paid taxes in 10 years, perhaps he failed to mention that the taxes in particular were tobacco and alcohol taxes. We all know what a dirty business politics is especially during campaigns, so the Dems must be tearing their collective hair out trying to find something dastardly with which they can smear their otherwise wholesome opponent. In a recent column, Ann Coulter astutely observed that Mitt Romney is so deficient in the area of compromising scandals that the Dems are reduced to turning mild and ordinary behavior into something...
