  • New York to Iowa: Why I Traveled to Help Michele Bachmann

    The Vault ^ | Irv Pollack
    I am a native New Yorker. I was raised in the city, but now live in a nice suburb, about 30 miles from Manhattan. I have a Manhattan-based friend who has a particularly aggressive form of cancer, which an experimental treatment is helping him battle successfully. He’s referred to by the nurses at his treatment center as a “miracle.” Just over two weeks ago, I drove him to his weekly chemotherapy session at an oncology center near my home. Whenever we get together, we talk about the many things that we have in common, which could be categorized as “traditionalism.”...

    "Is he a socialist?” asks FOX News’s blunt television host Bill O’Reilly. “I prefer to use the term that ‘he’s just over his head,’” the former governor of Massachusetts responds with what he must have thought was a safe answer. “Yeah, but you gotta’ look at his economic plan, and that economic plan was top down, federal leadership getting us out of the recession — we spent trillions of dollars–and people say, ‘Listen, the guy’s a socialist!‘ It’s class warfare; that‘s what he’s going to wage against you if you get the nomination,” O’Reilly says, gesturing towards Romney. “You’re a...

    Club for Growth ^ | 2007 (with update) | Staff
    The Club for Growth wrote a white paper on Governor Romney back in 2007. Most of the information below is from that repory, but since Romney has been outspoken on several issues then, weve updated his record to reflect those positions. ...During his initial 2002 campaign Romney refused to sign an anti-tax pledge, but he pledged to balance the budget without raising taxes and touted his fulfillment of that pledge throughout his term. But the details suggest that he broke his verbal committment. Romney did not impose any broad-based tax hikes he imposed a slew of fee hikes. He opposed...

    Not a good day in Obamaville. His newly owned car company is having problems. Government Motors engines are catching fire on their Environment conscious flag ship, the Volt. Heres the run down: Government saftey checks were ignored it seems.Sales were already miserable.And it looks like the Repub controlled House might start an investigation! This brings back memories of newly minted Car Czar, Transportation Secretary Ray Ray LaHood. He was talking about the fraudulent claims of an accelerator problem. (Toyota did an investigation and proved it was bogus.) But leave it to Obama's loveable RINO Ray Ray LaHood to say this...

    little Friday morning comedy courtesy of The Hill: “I’ve been as consistent as human beings can be,” the presidential candidate said in a meeting with the editorial board of New Hampshire’s Seacoast Media Group. “I cannot state every single issue in exactly the same words every single time, and so there are some folks who, obviously, for various political and campaign purposes will try and find some change and try to draw great attention to something which looks like a change which in fact is entirely consistent.” I’m not sure if Romney actually believes this nonsense, or if he thinks...

    Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock picked up an endorsement from a presidential candidate in his primary challenge to Sen. Dick Lugar (R-Ind.) this week. Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain announced he would support Mourdock’s primary bid to unseat Lugar during a Monday visit to Indianapolis, the Associated Press reported. Cain reportedly met with Mourdock after addressing Indiana Republicans on the invitation of the state party. Indiana Republican Party Chairman Eric Holcomb invited all the GOP presidential candidates to speak to the Republican faithful in the state, but Cain was the first to schedule a visit. Cain placed fifth in Iowa's...

    [snip] Interviews with a dozen advisers, including those inside campaigns and those aligned with outside groups, show lines of attack likely to emerge...... While Mr. Romney’s position as an early leader in the race has been shaken by Mr. Perry, it will almost certainly not be Mr. Romney who engages Mr. Perry first. He is already the subject of criticism from other rivals, including former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, who questions Mr. Perry’s credentials. “We’ll see how conservative Rick Perry really is,” Mr. Santorum said. Here in Iowa, where the caucuses start the nominating contest, Mr. Perry is placing...

    So what does a complete review of Perry's record reveal? As it turns out, he sent a letter during his tenure as Texas Agricultural Commissioner that praised Hillary Clinton's 1993 health care reform efforts. "I think your efforts in trying to reform the nation's health care system are most commendable," he wrote. "I would like to request that the task force give particular consideration to the needs of the nation's farmers... Rural populations have a high proportion of uninsured people, rising health care costs, and often experience lack of services." He concluded by noting, "your efforts are worthy, and I...

Latino groups believe they have enough people in states such as California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas to successfully wage a war on the United States.

    Charlotte Observer ^ | September 1, 2011 | Todd J. Gillman The Dallas Morning News
    WASHINGTON Rick Perry, like other conservatives, has lots of complaints about the Supreme Court: The justices, he says, have meddled in social policy, stepped on state power and generally run amok. One solution the governor embraces is to end lifetime tenure - a cornerstone of the Constitution, whose drafters worried far less about activist or senile judges than about meddling tyrants and political pressure. The idea isn't original, and it's not limited to conservatives. Some scholars on the left have also embraced the idea as a correction for judges serving too long. It began to percolate in the 1980s and...

    Sure, he polls well, but can he debate? The polls keep looking better and better for Rick Perry, despite this week’s provocative headline in Politico, “Is Rick Perry Dumb?” Dumb or not, it sure seems to be working. On Monday, a CNN/ORC International poll of Republicans and independent voters who lean Republican found that Perry’s still on top, with 27 percent of Republicans nationwide supporting him for the nomination. Romney’s in second with 14 percent. A poll released Tuesday from Public Policy Polling showed Perry leading among likely Republican primary voters in South Carolina with 36 percent, a full 20...

    Michele Bachmann's allies are telling South Carolina voters that Rick Perry is not an "honest conservative." A super PAC connected to Bachmann, the Republican presidential candidate and representative from Minnesota, has announced its plans to air an ad in the the second-in-the-nation primary state of South Carolina that questions the tea party credentials of Perry, the Texas governor who has upended the 2012 campaign. "Rick Perry says he's one tough hombre on spending" the narrator says in the ad, before criticizing Perry's record in Texas. "Rick Perry doubled spending in a decade. And this year, Rick Perry is spending more...
