    If Rick Perry were to seek a quieter life after leaving office next January, none of his longtime aides and admirers would blame him.Already a grandfather, the longest-serving governor in Texas history will by then have capped off three full decades in public office and will be just a couple of months shy of his 65th birthday.There are weekend tailgates at Aggies games and hunting trips to attend, there’s big-time money to be made in a cushy private-sector job, and an opportunity to kick up his boots a little for the first time in his adult life.But as the end...

    Talk radio was paramount in building the conservative movement's role in presidential elections. This can be found with Barry Goldwater, the 1964 Republican presidential nominee and one of the intellectual leaders of the conservative movement. Political minds are wondering if it can help push Romney into the White House. for Romney. The Right Frequency by Fred V. Lucas chronicles talk radio's impact on presidential elections and politics from the days of Walter Winchell to modern day hosts such as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.

    “Deadly assault weapons … are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.” - Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney --IMAGE HERE-- As the Republican National Convention comes to a close, it is time for me to live up to the promise I made when I wrote about Why gun owners should fear a second term for President Obama. That promise was to give the Republican nominee the same skeptical scrutiny that I gave to President Obama. And just as in that previous article, I am limiting my discussion...
  • The Top 5 Silliest Obama Campaign Attacks on Mitt Romney

    07/18/2012 11:06:28 AM PDT · by Sark · 2 replies
    “It’s easy to get caught up in the distractions and the silliness and the tit for tat that consumes our politics.” – Senator Barack Obama, Democratic presidential primary campaign speech following a Pennsylvania loss against Senator Hillary Clinton, April 22nd, 2008. For political junkies, it seems like we’ve always been in the general election season. With Rick Perry imploding, Newt Gingrich dreaming of moon bases, and Rick Santorum failing to create a solid campaign infrastructure, it appeared inevitable that Mitt Romney would eventually win the Republican presidential nomination. In reality, however, the general election didn’t really start until April 10th,...
  • Are Conservatives Really Misrepresenting President Obama’s Remarks on Business?

    07/16/2012 9:47:45 AM PDT · by Sark · 10 replies
    A couple of days ago, I posted a blog criticizing President Obama over remarks that I perceived to be insulting toward entrepreneurs. In particular, I quoted the following excerpt from his speech: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Since that time, I’ve witnessed a backlash against my post and those of other conservatives who have made similar arguments. While I don’t intend to respond to every backlash like this, I believe that the arguments being made are credible enough to merit a response in this instance. The people castigating myself and...

I’ll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting part: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012. It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, “Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The...
  • A Short Guide to Principled Voting (Or: Why It’s OK to Vote for Romney)

    07/10/2012 1:36:01 PM PDT · by Sark · 31 replies
    One of the most frustrating statements for a politically involved person to hear is: “I don’t care about politics, I never vote. They’re all liars/crooks.” This may be partially true, but it’s certainly not universally true. Most politicians have good intentions and are good people in their own right, even in Washington. Nearly all of them believe that they’re striving for the common good. For a democratic republic, the United States federal government isn’t actually very corrupt. Still, this raises an important question. How should you decide whom to vote for? Do you vote for the morally-dubious person that you...

Lots of corruption, secret undertakings, and opacity dominate the Federal Reserve, but what would be the alternative? A presidential, or congressional commission that oversees the U.S. banking system? No. Elected representatives overseeing the quasi government agency Fed? Not likely. Governments, for eons of time, have been in charge of the coinage, and it cannot be any other way.

    Shortly after Republicans swept last November to a historic victory in which Sarah Palin was credited with playing a central role, the former Alaska governor pulled aside her close aide, Rebecca Mansour, to discuss a hush-hush assignment: Reach out to conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon with a request. Ask him if he would make a series of videos extolling Palin's governorship and laying to rest lingering questions about her controversial decision to resign from office with a year-and-a-half left in her first term. It was this abdication, Palin knew, that had made her damaged goods in the eyes of...

    Who benefited from the exits of Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump from the Republican presidential nomination race? Gallup’s latest poll suggests that no one has, at least at the moment. The poll only asked about name recognition and approval, not nomination selection; Gallup used its April poll to reallocate nomination support based on second choices from Huckabee and Trump voters. However, the “positive intensity score” for both are lower than Huckabee’s was before he pulled out, and the race still has no breakout candidate: With Mike Huckabee out of the race for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, three well-known politicians,...

There is a deep and diverse pool of potential Republican nominees. Florida propelled Allen West to the House. In New Mexico,...

After his speech to the Lincoln Club at the Balboa Bay Club on Friday, I sat down with him to see just where he stands in terms of throwing his hat in the ring – he hasn't yet – and on some key issues. Below are excerpts. You can find the full transcript at the Total Buzz blog, blogs.ocregister.com/buzz/...

    As Former Senator and possible Presidential candidate Fred Thompson continues to build momentum towards a 2008 presidential campaign, other candidates are beginning to take note, and prepare. Thompson’s sterling conservative record is hard to dispute so, it seems that his primary opponents are already looking to temper and dilute his record through affiliation. A friend of mine in DC recently notified me of increased focus from the McCain campaign on Fred Thompson’s 2000 endorsement of John McCain...

    The Presidential Pre-Season Here we are at the start of another season with the run for the Presidency. This is the preseason, which lasts until July of next year. During the preseason we have the veteran stars, the regular players, the high priced rookies, and the holdouts. Over the next months of the preseason we will see some rise, some fall, some quit and others jockeying for positions either moving into the elites or seeking positions allying with the leaders. So let’s get right to it and look at this year’s players and prospects for the Democrat League and the...

    Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Sam Brownback said yesterday he no longer supports the immigration overhaul bill that he helped pass in the Senate. "I would not vote for the same bill," Mr. Brownback told reporters yesterday morning, saying that after the bill passed the Senate he had a chance to study its effects and decided it led to too much immigration. It's a major reversal for a man who is listed as one of seven original sponsors of the bill, along with Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Massachusetts Democrat, and Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, who spearheaded the bill... He said...
  • What Fred Thompson Did to Newt Gingrich

    The Gingrich Strategy, if you could call it that, for 2008 was pretty simple: Wait until September 2007… if Rudy has faltered, McCain has failed to excite the conservative base, or Romney has failed to gain traction, through your hat in the ring. Wait and see if a void developed, and if so, fill it. All of a sudden, though, the Fred Thompson boomlet is trouble for Newt. We have seen...

    Front-runners aim to avoid backfire Analysts point to probe risks, fickle voters By Susan Milligan, Globe Staff | March 10, 2007 WASHINGTON -- Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton determinedly presses her colleagues for early endorsements of her presidential candidacy, touts her appearances before sold-out and influential audiences like tonight's "100 Club" dinner in Nashua, and refers to her plans in terms of "when" and not "if" she is elected to the White House. Her identification as the Democratic front-runner is partly beyond her control, the result of high name recognition and decades of fame. But like her Republican counterpart, John McCain...

    "Mitt Romney: No matter how much credibility McCain gains with conservatives, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney appears to be winning their support much more. Romney unveiled the names of his 22-member congressional whip team, and among them was Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.), head of the House Conservatives Fund and a key player in the Republican Study Committee."
  • Giuliani's... filings don't lend hints to... run - he hasn't... checked the Republican box

    WASHINGTON - Republicans looking at Rudolph Giuliani's campaign for president always ask two questions - is he really running, and is he a "real Republican?" They're probably not going to like the answers found by Newsday in Giuliani's government filings. The ex-mayor still is holding back from submitting the simple one-page form declaring himself a possible candidate, despite raising $1.4 million to run. And asked what party he belongs to on a different form, Giuliani didn't say - he left the answer blank.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Gov. Bill Richardson, D-N.M., said Sunday he is taking the first step toward an expected White House run in 2008, offering extensive experience in Washington and the world stage as he seeks to become the first Hispanic president. "I am taking this step because we have to repair the damage that's been done to our country over the last six years," said Richardson, a former congressman, U.N. ambassador and Energy Department secretary. "Our reputation in the world is diminished, our economy has languished, and civility and common decency in government has perished," he said in a statement....
