    The following [are excerpts from] an email sent out by Morton Blackwell of the Leadership Institute I was Barry Goldwater’s youngest elected delegate in 1964, I was honored toserve on President Ronald Reagan’s White House Staff from 1981-1984, and I have attended every Republican National Convention Rules Committee meeting since 1972. My wife and I have contributed major donations to the Romney-Ryan campaign. These rule changes are the most awful I’ve ever seen come before any National Convention. I’m writing you today to urge you to join the growing effort to stop the worst-ever changes in this Rules Committee’s Report...

    TAMPA -- A Republican National Convention protestor was arrested while he allegedly carried a machete strapped to his leg, according to deputies. According to Hillsborough County Sheriff's officials, Jason T. Wilson, of Tallahassee, was arrested as he walked in the RNC Event Zone carrying a "full size" machete. When deputies approached Wilson, they said he continued to walk away despite orders to stop. "When deputies caught up to Wilson, he advised he did not have to stop and that he was allowed to carry whatever he wanted," HCSO spokesperson Larry McKinnon said. When deputies attempted to physically stop him, Wilson...

"Her Facebook page, like her daughter’s, is revealing. She put up a link to the Obama video and writes, 'Maria and I are part of this video. I hope you watch,'” he wrote before posting a screen shot of her personal Facebook page.
  • Could Isaac overshadow U.S. Republicans' convention?

    Tropical Storm Isaac forced Republicans on Sunday to rewrite the script for their national convention in Tampa, as party officials scrambled to make sure candidate Mitt Romney's message to voters would not be blown off course. Isaac was expected to spare Tampa a direct hit and strike, with hurricane strength, farther north along the Gulf Coast this week. But it has left Republicans who canceled most of their schedule for Monday in anticipation of the storm with a new challenge for the convention's remaining three days: Help Romney make an aggressive, memorable argument to be president, while being careful to...
  • To Secretary Ritchie: Stop your photo ID fabrications

    It is bad enough that some politicians resort to falsehoods and scare tactics to distract and mislead the public. But when the issue is election integrity, and the politician is the top election official in the state, it has to stop. Secretary of State Mark Ritchie opposes requiring voters to show a photo ID before voting. Fair enough, we have a legitimate difference of opinion. But he doesn't stop there. Ritchie is desperately attacking and falsely representing the photo ID constitutional amendment on the ballot in November. Desperately, because polls show overwhelming support for photo ID in Minnesota. Falsely, because...

    Via Drudge, the inevitable finish for an ad for a President whose track record on vetting and research has been all too vividly featured in our Obamateurism series. Earlier this week, Team Obama stepped up its War On Wimminses strategy with this ad, featuring women who identify as Republican but who intend to vote for Barack Obama in 2012. However, as the old Sesame Street song used to go, at least one of these women are not like the other: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO OF THE AD: "REPUBLICAN WOMEN FOR OBAMA" Maria Ciano who is featured in the...

    (Reuters) – Missouri conservatives say they are rallying around U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin despite his controversial comments about rape because they are outraged that “establishment” Republican Party leaders tried to railroad him out of the race. A backlash has set in here in Akin’s suburban St. Louis congressional district, where supporters said the national party had no right to attempt to force out a duly-elected candidate.

    Washington - With both the Democratic and Republican parties out to woo the three million strong Indian-American community with its growing political clout, three of them have been given prime spots at the two parties' presidential conventions. While California's Indian-American Attorney General Kamala Harris has won a prime speaking role at the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina next month, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal and South Carolina governor Nikki Haley would be among the "headliners" at the Republican National Convention at Tampa Florida next week. Apart from a speaking slot at the Democratic convention that would endorse President Barack Obama's...

    Want to know why the Republican Party is in such trouble? I believe it comes down to one word: courage. When Democrats misspeak, we make them vice president. When Republicans misspeak, Republicans are the first in line to throw them under the bus. When Rep. Todd Akin stood for protecting all innocent human life in a recent interview, he used a word with more than one meaning. He used the word “legitimate” before the word “rape” to mean “real,” “forcible,” a tragic event that “really took place.” ....... But because “legitimate” could also modify the word rape, some in the...

    A week before his big speech at the Republican National Convention, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio made a dry run of sorts in an appearance Wednesday at Forum Club of the Palm Beaches luncheon. And his request to keep the press from videotaping Wednesday’s talk has one local newspaper accusing the senator of censorship. It’s an allegation that political analyst Jack Furnari called “hyperventilating.”

    When GOP delegates make their way downtown each day next week, they'll get a reminder that they're holding their quadrennial convention in a city run by Democrats. A billboard scheduled to go up today on Interstate 275 at Armenia Boulevard welcomes Republicans to a city "Where the mayor and all city council members are Democrats." It adds, for good measure, "Enjoy our well-run city!" The billboard was purchased by Ruth's List Florida, a group that works to elect what it describes as progressive women. It's one of a number of organizations – partisan and non-partisan – laying claim to the...

    A few days ago I wrote an article on my blog, Christian Fearing God-Man, detailing the 10 rules that every American should follow when they decide to get involved in American Politics (shameless plug). It doesn't matter how you get involved, because the rules are still the same whether you run for office, blog, or serve as an activist in some way. The rules are in jest because I've been told that we need to have an "adult conversation" about the troubles facing our nation, and I realized a long time ago that an adult conversation is just a dream....

    The Obama re-election campaign huddled today with “progressive” religious leaders as they coordinate a line of attack against conservative Catholic congressman Paul Ryan, Republican Mitt Romney’s selection as his ticket-mate. The Democrat-aligned religious leaders are critical of the budget proposals Rep. Ryan has championed on Capitol Hill, which, they charge, will exacerbate the sufferings of the nation’s poor. They also portray Ryan as a secret admirer of Ayn Rand, who famously authored “Atlas Shrugged” and “The Fountainhead;” who was, at once, a strong defender of capitalism and an avowed atheist. Of course, it is hard for left-wing religious leaders to...
