  • Hesitatingly, Disappointedly, and Agonizingly...for Mitt (Because our main goal is to defeat Obama)

    American Thinker ^ | 02/04/2012 | Ron Lipsman
    Conservatives were greatly encouraged by the results of the 2010 national elections. Furthermore, they were excited about the Republicans completing the sweep in 2012 by taking the Senate and the White House. The chance to not only defeat the current crop of ultra-liberal Democrats leading those two institutions, but to finally reverse a century-long slide into statism, socialism, and amoral secularism -- that worthy goal seemed within reach. Therefore, intense interest arose among conservatives in the Republican presidential nomination process that began last summer. It was disappointing when those most qualified to lead the envisioned counter-revolution chose not to participate....
  • An Open Letter To RNC Reince Preibus: Do The Right Thing With The Florida Delegates

    02/03/2012 9:45:14 PM PST · by Billlknowles · 39 replies ^ | 2-4-2012 | Bill Knowles
    Dear Chairman Preibus, I am writing an open letter to you in hopes that you will do the right thing and make the Florida Republican Party abide by the rules of the Republican National Committee. The state of Florida deliberately snubbed its' nose at the party and the rules several months ago when it voted to hold the Florida primary early, which has already cost if 49 delegates out of the original 99 delegates allocated by the RNC. Now they further give the party the middle finger by allocating the remaining delegates as "winner-take-all", instead of the proportional allotment that...

  • Ron Paul says Latinos have become 'scapegoats' (Like Jews in Nazi Germany) - Barf Alert

    02/01/2012 4:14:13 PM PST · by mnehring · 16 replies · 1+ views
    ...Immigration, however, was another story. The 12-term Texas congressman spent the better part of a 25-minute address thinking aloud about the thorny subject. He talked about how Americans are more accepting of outsiders when the economy is good, but when trouble looms there is a search for scapegoats. "I believe Hispanics have been used as scapegoats, to say, they're the problem instead of being a symptom maybe of a problem with the welfare state," Paul told the group. "In Nazi Germany they had to have scapegoats to blame and they turned on the Jews....
  • Video: Romney “not concerned about the very poor, we have a safety net”

    Hot Air ^ | 1 February | Ed Morrissey
    Earlier today, I said that only Mitt Romney could derail Mitt Romney this month. Did my prediction come true already? The media and Romney detractors have jumped all over this statement to CNN in which Romney says that he is “not concerned about the very poor,” but that slice of Romney’s statement is entirely misleading — although it’s certainly not adept for a front-runner:

    Mass Resistance ^ | November 20, 2006 | Brian Camenker, MassResistance
    Despite recent statements across the country by Governor Mitt Romney claiming he's pro-life, pro-family and a committed conservative, a broad investigation of his actual statements, actions, and public positions over the years indicates that he has spent his entire career speaking and governing as a liberal - and that his new found conversion to conservatism very likely coincides with his candidacy for the presidency. The information in this report is gleaned from public records, press accounts, internet web sites and research (as well as personal observation) by my organization, MassResistance, a grass-roots pro-family group that has observed Governor Romney for...

    National Review | January 31, 2012
    January 31, 2012 The Florida Smear Campaign Mitt Romney’s Fraudulent Attacks on Newt Gingrich. Thomas Sowell. The Republican establishment is pulling out all the stops to try to keep Newt Gingrich from becoming the party’s nominee for president of the United States — and some are not letting the facts get in their way. Among the claims going out through the mass media in Florida, on the eve of that state’s primary election, is that Newt Gingrich “resigned in disgrace” as speaker of the House of Representatives as a result of unethical conduct involving the diversion of tax-exempt money. Mitt...
  • Drudge 'all in' for Romney, says activist

    One News Now ^ | 1/32/2012 | Chad Groening
    For many years, the Drudge Report has served as a clearinghouse for many conservatives about the news of the day. But according to the not-too-conservative Politico, Matt Drudge's news aggregation website leaves Gingrich "looking like a dangerous, anti-Reagan, Clintonian fraud." Matt Barber is director of cultural affairs at Liberty Counsel. He says it is obvious that Drudge is "all in" for Mitt Romney. "Matt Drudge has decided to completely sell out and has signed on with the moderate Republican establishment and is pushing the Mitt Romney campaign and is acting as the attack dog against Newt Gingrich," Barber comments. "And...

    New Hampshire Union Leader ^ | January 26, 2012 | Ken Mehlman
    “Live Free or Die” isn’t just the official motto for a great state. As the 62nd Republican National Committee Chairman, I think it’s a mantra our party should live by. I hope that New Hampshire legislators will remember this slogan and reject proposals to strip citizens of their right to marry. The party of Lincoln and Reagan should stand first and foremost for freedom. It’s part of our heritage and ought to be part of our DNA. Freedom for Americans of all races is why our party was founded. And our greatest moments — from the unbelievable economic recovery unleashed...
  • Fact checker: Ron Paul gets three Pinocchios for claim that U.S. blockading Iran

    01/30/2012 5:38:31 PM PST · by mnehring · 14 replies
    On Friday, a Washington Post fact checker gave GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul three "Pinocchios" for claiming the United States is blockading Iran during the NBC debate in Tampa on January 23. During that debate, Paul said: "We're blockading [Iran]. Can you imagine what we would do if somebody blockaded the Gulf of Mexico? That would be an act of war. So the act of war has already been committed and this is a retaliation. But besides, there's no interest whatsoever for Iran to close the Straits of Hormuz. I mean, they need it as much as we do. I...
  • Romney Advisor: Putting the boot on the neck of Gingrich. Aiming to destroy Gingrich in FL for good.

    After Gingrich Newt scored a surprise blow-out victory in South Carolina last week, the former Massachusetts governor not only unleashed a political broadside of epic proportions. "It not about winning here anymore," one Romney staffer told BuzzFeed. "It's about destroying Gingrich — and it's working." After two standout debate performances that put him up 9 points in recent polls, Romney is keeping the pressure on Gingrich, looking to score a blow-out victory of his own here. To that end, Romney has rolled out a team of surrogates in the Sunshine State to take the fight to Gingrich in person: from...

    When Ron Paul is photographed smiling with a well-known white supremacists, when Ron Paul is described as having frequent meetings with neo-Nazis, when Ron Paul refuses to return money sent to him by Aryan Nation lawyers, when Ron Paul speaks before the Robert A. Taft club – a group with ties to white supremacists, and when Ron Paul either supervised or wrote consistently racist political newsletters from which he earned financial profits, Ron Paul supporters have an quick explanation: Ron Paul didn’t actually know anything about any of these activities. They claim that, over the course of several decades, Ron...

    Well that lasted exactly 3 days. I was happy initially to believe I had found a replacement for my Drudge link. This morning, I clicked on my "replacement", and it's like Drudge all over again. But with less oomph. No thanks.
  • Conservatives Criticize Drudge for Anti-Gingrich Assault

    NYT ^ | 01/26/2012 | Michael D. Shear
    Furious conservatives have taken to blogs and Twitter on Thursday to vent their ire against what they allege is a conspiratorial dumping of twisted and manipulated negative attacks on Newt Gingrich. The target of their fury: The Drudge Report. For the last 48 hours, the conservative Web site led by Matt Drudge has become a virtual campaign arm for Mitt Romney, featuring huge, screaming headlines about Mr. Gingrich and his past. That prompted conservatives who support Mr. Gingrich to accuse Mr. Drudge of selling out to the Republican establishment — many of whom have come to Mr. Romney’s aid as...

    <p>We are sad to report that two admirable and effective organizations were taken over last night by the sleazy dirty tricks of the Ron Paul Revolution. Both "Military Members All Services and Our Supporters" and "Tea Party 2.0" are victims of the same infiltration technique. They were contacted by a person with a patriotic profile featuring a "Support The Troops" banner, who asked to be an administrator so she could "help expand the group and foster its mission." When the request was approved, the sabotage began immediately.</p>

    Hotair ^ | 01/27/2012 | Jazz Shaw
    Those decades old newsletters just seem to keep following Ron Paul around like a bad penny or a stalker ex-girlfriend. And while it sometimes gets the Texas congressman peeved to the point of walking out of interviews when asked about them, it looks like the questions won’t be stopping any time soon. Three people, including one of Paul’s former secretaries, have come forward to tell the Washington Post that Congressman Paul was actually quite hands on when it came to the publication. Ron Paul, well known as a physician, congressman and libertarian , has also been a businessman who pursued...

    Washington Post ^ | 1-27-12 | Jerry Markon and Alice Crites
    Ron Paul, well known as a physician, congressman and libertarian , has also been a businessman who pursued a marketing strategy that included publishing provocative, racially charged newsletters to make money and spread his ideas, according to three people with direct knowledge of PaulÂ’s businesses. The Republican presidential candidate has denied writing inflammatory passages in the pamphlets from the 1990s and said recently that he did not read them at the time or for years afterward. Numerous colleagues said he does not hold racist views. But people close to PaulÂ’s operations said he was deeply involved in the company that...

    Holy cow. Powerful start to Rush's show today. - Disclaimer: this information is provided as an imprecise, recollection second-hand of statements on Rush Limbaugh's broadcast this morning. No claim of accuracy is made, do your own due diligence please. - Yesterday, one of the most damning statements (as far as Newt's perspective would be) Rush made, as he was attempting on-air to make sense of the blizzard of Newt-hate yesterday from Drudge et al, was his thoughts about a rather nasty article by Elliot Abrams. The article claimed Newt Gingrich opposed Reagan's foreign policy toward the evil empire. Rush clearly...

    Indeed, asked in late summer by a gay group whether he supported recognition of gay marriage, [Kennedy, Romney] made clear just how much he has modeled himself on Weld. Romney said he "stood with Gov. Weld" in believing "it is not appropriate at this time." He added: "I am sure he will study it and evaluate it and I will endorse his position on that." The Kennedy camp clearly hopes those ads can drive a wedge between Romney and those Reagan or Silber Democrats who might otherwise be interested in his themes of change.

    [Romney] adviser Charles Manning last night dismissed [L. Brent Bozell]'s group as a right-wing organization that has not been involved in Romney's campaign. He said he now regrets asking his group members to contribute to Romney because the debate "demonstrated very clearly that (Romney) has more in common with liberal Democrats than he does with conservatives." [Edward M. Kennedy] attempted to link Romney several times during the debate to conservatives such as Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) and accused him of trying to return the country to the policies of the Reagan-Bush administrations..."I'm not trying to return to Reagan-Bush." Romney has...
