  • Conservative group: Boehner will not be re-elected

    A conservative group aiming to oust John Boehner as speaker of the House said on Wednesday that they have commitments from enough Republicans in Congress to deliver the political surprise of the year and deny the Ohio Republican another two years with the speaker’s gavel. “I have confirmed with a group of congressmen that Speaker Boehner will not be elected speaker tomorrow,” Ron Meyer of the group American Majority Action wrote in an email Wednesday evening. “He will either resign or be forced out tomorrow.” In a phone interview with The Daily Caller, Meyer said “more than 20” Republicans have...

    The Bright Side Of Hell:Obama’s win has its good points by Daniel Clark In the wake of President Obama’s reelection, conservatives are reacting as if America as we know it will no longer exist. And you know what? They’re right. Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” America in 2008, and he’s got the job well underway by now. The question is, why does that have to be a negative? Evidently, a majority of voters don’t think it is, so maybe they’ve got a point. If you can’t understand how, just take a minute to consider the following list of reasons why...

    The New Pearl Harbor Day | me
    It became apparent fairly early yesterday evening that we had lost. It wasn't just the presidential loss--Phaux-cohontas Warren beat Scott Brown in MA, Allen West lost his house seat, along with five other T.E.A party patriots...Mourdock, Aiken both lost. After everything Obama has done, people were still stupid enough to vote for him and his lackies. With the price of gas up 4x since the day he took office, with the price of food up, along with the price of just about everything else along with a general drop in quality... So what now? I prayed so hard for this...
  • McConnell: "I refuse to help Barack Obama get re-elected"

    Laura Ingraham grills Mitch McConnell on his Plan Z option, floated yesterday as a last-ditch approach to the debt ceiling issue, and McConnell argues the benefits of the plan as a defense of Republicans against getting saddled with blame for economic damage done during a potential default. Ingraham asks McConnell whether he’s positioning as a “realist,” and McConnell says that reality will be that Obama won’t compromise in this process. If not, and Republicans don’t blink, Obama will have the upper hand:

    Marist released more data from its poll this week, the same survey that found a significant slide in Barack Obama’s approval ratings — the survey with a +8 advantage for Democrats in the sample. In fact, Democrats comprised 35% of the sample, while Republicans only accounted for 27%. And yet, according to Marist, Obama only has 37% of their respondents committed to a second term for the President (via Newsalert): President Barack Obama has officially announced that he will seek re-election next year, but he faces an electorate that still needs convincing. According to this McClatchy-Marist Poll, a plurality of...

    Here is video of Donald Trump talking about President Obama, whom he said he is not sure “he is ever going to recover” – meaning not sure he will be able to get re-elected. Trump said the “level of hatred for our government” by the people is “like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”

    Few Americans consider themselves bigger than the presidency but Obama might be one of them. The man in the Oval Office, argues Toby Harnden, may already be preparing for a role as a post-president in a post-American world. When David Plouffe, President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign manager, wrote recently that his former boss was "not concerned with his re-election", there was predictable scepticism. After all, it has long been a truism that every politician wants to cling to power and a reality that presidential campaigns are planned years in advance. Pronouncements about not looking at polls and concentrating on getting...

    LA PAZ, Bolivia – President Evo Morales has been re-elected as head of Bolivia's largest coca-growers union, a post he has held for more than two decades. Morales was sworn in late Monday as head of the Six Federations of the Tropic of Cochabamba, which represents more than 40,000 growers. .. Morales called his leadership of the union largely "symbolic" but promised regular meetings. His re-election was criticized by opposition members, who said it was inappropriate given an apparent rise in drug trafficking violence.

    Saddam spies 'offered to help Chirac get re-elected' By Francis Harris in Washington, Henry Samuel in Paris and David Rennie in Brussels (Filed: 14/05/2005) Saddam Hussein's spies planned a wide-ranging scheme to bribe members of the French political elite in the run-up to the Anglo-American invasion, including an offer to help fund President Jacques Chirac's 2002 re-election campaign. That bid failed, according to Iraqi secret service papers seen by The Daily Telegraph, when Mr Chirac's aides allegedly said they did not need the cash. Former EC president Jacques Delors According to the series of Iraqi intelligence service memorandums uncovered by...

    Bush was 're-elected by Porsche drivers' By David Rennie in Washington (Filed: 07/12/2004) The backroom wizards who won the American presidential election for George W Bush have disclosed how they tracked down every last Republican, even in traditionally unfriendly districts. Using market research more normally reserved for the launch of a new soap powder or soft drink, they drew up a database indicating the likely political persuasion of every consumer, based on car brands, hobbies and favourite television programmes. Research showed that the most Republican car was Porsche Having found America's water-skiing, golf-loving Porsche drivers, they then persuaded them to...

    From Maureen Dowd's brother Kevin, a salesman who lives in Montgomery County, Md., here is a recent e-mail message, trimmed for space, he sent to friends: "Ladies and Gentlemen, Now, just as four years ago, I breathe a huge sigh of relief and rejoice in the common sense of the American voting public. Congratulations to President Bush for winning re-election in a poker game played with a stacked deck. No candidate, including Richard Nixon, ever had to endure the biased and unfair tactics of our major media in their attempt to influence the outcome of an election. He never complained,...

    Clintons Shutting Up, Quietly Undermining Kerry Written by Chris Long Tuesday, September 28, 2004 The problem with a Kerry presidency for the Clintons is the possibility that Kerry may preside over a strengthening economy not of his making and spark international chaos by giving terrorist groups a breather by waffling in what is, in reality, World War III. Either way, the Clintons lose. A good economy coupled with a Kerry presidency gets him re-elected; chumming with the French and Germans and undermining the War on Terror gets Kerry un-elected, replaced by Republican Colin Powell who now has foreign policy...

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Winding up her summer tour across Europe, rhythm and blues singer Bonnie Raitt (news) drew thunderous applause at the Stockholm Jazz Festival for dedicating a classic to U.S. President George W. Bush (news - web sites). "We're gonna sing this for George Bush because he's out of here, people!" Raitt crowed Tuesday night before she launched into the opening licks of "Your Good Thing (Is About to End)," a cover that was featured on her 1979 album "The Glow." The song, penned by Isaac Hayes and David Porter, has been sung by several notable performers, including Mable...

    Who could have thought that a 54-year old doctor and ex-governor of sleepy Vermont could send all of the Democratic presidential contenders scrambling for cover? There are lots of reasons for Republicans to wish Howard Dean all the best of luck in his quest to become George Bush's opponent in 2004. It makes a true Republican want to send a campaign donation his way. Howard Dean is such a thorn in everyone's side because he disrupts the delicate balance of power that has been so cultivated by the "front-runners." It was expected that Dick Gephardt would easily sweep the Iowa...
