  • Reagan Derangement Syndrome Is Alive and Well

    National Review ^ | June 28, 2017 | Kyle Smith
    To believe, in the 1980s, that Ronald Reagan was going to blow up the world may have been merely peculiar. To believe so today is a symptom of raging Reagan Derangement Syndrome. And yet here we are, with The Reagan Show, a new documentary rehashing the paranoid style of Reaganography, set for limited theatrical release on June 30 and video-on-demand release shortly thereafter. The continuing popularity of President Reagan is a source of profound irritation and unease to liberals. To assuage their pain, they have gone back to their initial rationalization for how Reagan became so beloved: He cheated. Though...

    Royal Dutch Shell plc's acquisition of BG Group plc took another step forward with the receipt of unconditional merger clearance from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, the company said Thursday. Following previously announced clearances in Brazil and the European Union, three of the five pre-conditions to the Shell-BG merger have now been satisfied, leaving only approvals from Australia’s Foreign Investment Review Board and China’s Ministry of Commerce outstanding.

  • Like Obama, Karl Rove Seems Willing to Subvert the Constitution to Win in 2012

    The Post & Email ^ | October 26, 2011 | Lawrence Sellin
    First of all, no one should take Karl Rove too seriously. He acts purely out of self-interest. Rove cares little about the Constitution, the rule of law or the country. He is only interested in winning elections because each election he wins increases his power, prestige and the size of his financial portfolio. Rove is part of the Republican establishment, who long ago decided that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney will be their Presidential candidate in 2012 and Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) will be chosen for the Vice Presidency. Romney has the mega-money backers and a national campaign organization, key...
  • Rove: Palin tour in Iowa 'smart,' but she has to reach outside GOP ranks

    GOP strategist Karl Rove doesn't think Sarah Palin's reality show will earn her any points for a presidential run, but said Friday that putting three of her 16 book tour stops in Iowa is "a smart thing to do." Palin is hitting the road, including in the early presidential state, to promote her new book "America By Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag." "It gives her an excuse to be there as something other than a candidate, which is really important," Rove said on Fox News. "That's a pretty smart move if you're thinking about running for president," he...

    The instant Karl Rove appears on any Fox show, I'm changing channels and won't go back to that show for the rest of the day. I might switch to Cops, I might switch to Ted Nugent's Spirit of the Wild, if it's on. I can't and won't take any more of Rove.

    STG News ^ | 11/3/10 | William Way, Jr.
    There is a singular event that shoved the Republican Senate car over the cliff. That event was the primary victory of Christine O'Donnell. This morning she used a phrase that is right on the money. That description is "Republican Cannibalism." I personally hold Karl Rove to blame, followed closely by Senator John Cornyn. Rove is an establishment Progressive Republican of the first order. Following O'Donnell's message of values victory in Delaware, Rove started slinging mud in her direction because he realized she was a woman that couldn't be bought & sold on a D.C. street corner. It was Rove who...

    The Boston Globe ^ | 01-01-10 | The Boston Globe Staff
    Mitt Romney - that rare political breed, a Republican elected statewide in Massachusetts - told supporters yesterday that if Scott Brown can pull off a similar feat next month in the US Senate special election, it would shock the country and send a strong message that business as usual in Washington is coming to an end. He would bring badly-needed fiscal restraint to an out-of-control budget process that is adding trillions of dollars to our national debt, said Romney, the former Bay State governor who gives every indication hes preparing a second presidential bid in 2012.

    Rudy continues to play coy about challenging Gov. Paterson. So what's keeping him from making up his mind? "NY is in pretty bad shape. If I thought I could make a real difference," he told a Crain's NY breakfast, "I would do it." Two terms as mayor and more than three decades in the public eye, and he still doesn't know whether he can make a difference? The election is 15 months away. But Giuliani other candidates biding their time waiting for Rudy to make up his mind would need every bit of that time to run an effective race........

    I'm Jen O'Malley Dillon, the new Executive Director of the Democratic National Committee. If you're anything like me, then you've had the urge to talk back to a right-wing talk radio host more than a few times. Now you can. Rush Limbaugh has made waves lately about his desire to see President Obama fail. And he's unapologetic, even though Americans voted in November for the very kind of change the President is bringing to Washington. As even Limbaugh must know, if the President fails, America fails. Incredibly, Republican leaders have yet to condemn Limbaugh for his destructive comments. In fact,...

    NewsBusters ^ | March 5, 2009 | Jack Coleman
    Deep down, Ed Schultz is shallow, to paraphrase Dorothy Parker. Case in point: Schultz's trite, cliched comparison of conservative talker Rush Limbaugh's remarks before a boisterous CPAC audience with Hitler addressing a Nazi rally. Schultz, the top-rated liberal radio host in the nation, watched Limbaugh's speech on TV last weekend -- with the sound turned down -- and was convinced he saw "striking" parallels to the German dictator. Here's what Schultz said on Monday's show, preceding his criticism of Limbaugh with praise for the late radio giant Paul Harvey (click here for audio) -- He was looked up to...

    Dont you wish Democrats felt as threatened by Islamofascism as they are by Rush Limbaugh? Dont you wish Democrats recognized the right to free speech with the same enthusiasm they recognize the right to an abortion? Dont you wish Democrats criticized what Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hamas say half as much as they criticize what Rush Limbaugh says? Dont you wish Democrats wanted to balance the political makeup of university professors and mainstream media reporters as badly as they want to balance the political makeup of radio talk hosts? Dont you wish Democrats would be as blind to race cards as...

On Friday afternoon, as you know, the president of the United States -- actually it was Friday morning, but we didn't learn about it 'til Friday afternoon. Friday morning in a meeting with House and Senate Republican leaders, President Obama basically told them to stop listening to me, that's not how things get done in Washington. "We can't let Rush Limbaugh stall the stimulus plan." Now, this is the great unifier. This is the man that's going to unify everybody and usher in...

    DCCC must be the roman numerals for “zero.” The left-wing advocacy group has heard some of Rush Limbaugh’s recent remarks and is claiming that Rush hopes that “President Obama fails to meet America’s challenges.” They even started a petition against Limbaugh for attacking Obama. For anyone who’s interested, here’s the DCCC page where anyone can sign the petition and say anything they want to Mr. Limbaugh. You may have already heard Limbaugh’s actual words: “I want Obama to fail,” followed by a complete lack of context. Isolated, the radio personality’s comment suggests that he wants America’s economy to flounder...

    The deer-eyed and pea-brained Senator Reid found out last year that he shouldnt lie about Rush Limbaugh in an attempt to destroy him. If you recall, Rush turned Reids action into a charity event that raised millions, and Reid ended up apologizing to Rush. Now the Democrats are trying again to get Rush, because he disagrees with Obamas intentions to socialize our wonderful country and destroy our healthcare system. The housing and credit crisis that the Democrats caused swept Obama into office, but most of us object to his giving away our country to people who wont work, or who...

    Dear "Past Your Eyes", Last week, Rush Limbaugh gave us a preview of the outrageous Republican attacks that are on the way against President Obama and every Democrat working for change. Rush actually said that he 'hopes' President Obama fails to meet America's challenges. Listen to Rush in his own words, saying "I hope he fails." Limbaugh's cheap shot at President Obama might be the first by the Republican attack machine this year but we know that it won't be the last. We need every grassroots Democrat to show Rush Limbaugh and all of the Republicans what they're up against...
