    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...

    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...

    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...

    I find it highly amusing that some of Obama's antics are having the opposite effect of what he intended. For example, even though Obama is anti-Gun, he seems to be the best gun salesman out there. And when he told House Republican leaders to not listen to Rush Limbaugh, the result was more attention being paid to Rush. Even the Democrat party is failing...

    The hard-driving Tim Russert blew it. He allowed McCain to slip away with his dishonest characterization of Romney's statement, i.e., Romney never said he favored a specific time for withdrawal. McCain read the first part of the quote but not the second part, where Romney would veto a congressional time table. By now, everyone who is carefully following this knows that McCain's allegation is flatly false. ... On another note, a rumor is making the rounds that Fred Thompson will endorse John McCain tomorrow. I checked with somebody extremely close to the situation. Fred said the other day that he...

    After two hours of deliberation, we voted on a resolution that can be summarized as follows: If neither of the two major political parties nominates an individual who pledges himself or herself to the sanctity of human life, we will join others in voting for a minor-party candidate. Those agreeing with the proposition were invited to stand. The result was almost unanimous. The other issue discussed at length concerned the advisability of creating a third party if Democrats and Republicans do indeed abandon the sanctity of human life and other traditional family values. Though there was some support for the...

A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that a three-way race with Hillary Clinton would end up with the former First Lady getting 46% of the vote, Giuliani with 30% and the third-party option picking up 14%. In head-to-head match-ups with Clinton, Giuliani is much more competitive. Over this past weekend, several Christian conservative leaders indicated they might back a pro-life, third-party, candidate if Giuliani wins the...
