    Thankfully, our long national nightmare is over: Mitt Romney apologized on Thursday morning for pranks he helped orchestrate in high school that he said “might have gone too far,” including an incident in which he pinned down a fellow student and cut his hair.The presumptive Republican presidential nominee was responding to an article published a few hours earlier by The Washington Post documenting the episode with first-hand accounts from Romney’s classmates.“Back in high school, I did some dumb things and if anybody was hurt by that or offended, obviously I apologize for that,” Romney said in a live radio interview...

    Mitt Romney returned from a three-week spring break in 1965 to resume his studies as a high school senior at the prestigious Cranbrook School. Back on the handsome campus, studded with Tudor brick buildings and manicured fields, he spotted something he thought did not belong at a school where the boys wore ties and carried briefcases. John Lauber, a soft-spoken new student one year behind Romney, was perpetually teased for his nonconformity and presumed homosexuality. Now he was walking around the all-boys school with bleached-blond hair that draped over one eye, and Romney wasnt having it. He cant look like...
  • Obama & Gay Marriage: Is GOP best response: "Romney did it too" OR "Romney did it First"?

    Barack Obama has come out of the least about gay marriage. Until now he has kept Willie and Pete stuffed in a corner behind Moochelle's expensive sweaters and shoes. Tiring of hiding them, and with so much cash and positive media coverage at stake, he finally ushered them out into the limelight as his version of North Carolina smackdown. How dare those yokel Tarheels vote down gay marriage! Damn hillbillies! Republicans have rallied to North Carolina's side! Uhhh....wait a minute...last night's Fox News "Red Eye" spent most of the showing demeaning all things North Carolina decision as well. How...
  • Presidential Election 2012: Eddie Haskell versus Ward Cleaver

    The Presidential Election of 2012 is Beaverville played out in real life, on the national stage. President Barack Obama is the skinny, duplicitous Barry Haskell, while Gov. Mitt Romney is the wise, affectionate Mitt Cleaver. Heres a little history of the two main characters in the Eddie versus Ward show that Barry and Mitt are playing out right now, on the national stage, before an American audience: To begin with Barry Haskell lies. His lying always follows the same pattern, whether he is (a) distancing himself from a troublesome priest; (b) supporting gay marriage (1996), which he did before opposing...

    VOTING FOR ROMNEY IS TO VOTE FOR THE DEATH OF AMERICAAllowing homosexuals to serve openly and proudly in the U.S. Military is the single worst thing that has ever happened in American history. That infamous act of the U.S. Congress and the U.S. President, has cut America off from any further access to the resources of Divine Providence. You want to be like other nations? Now you will get the chance. Romney supported this infamy, and if elected, Romney will block any attempt to reverse it. Therefore, a vote for Romney is a vote to seal this infamy into the...

Reince Priebus: "Governor Romney and the Republican Party have been pretty clear, marriage is between one man and one woman. We believe ultimately that you can't federalize that kind of mandate, which is why we believe that individual states can make that decision on their own..."

    A new poll from Virginia, a key swing state, suggests that Evangelicals will help put Mitt Romney in the White House this November. It has become a truism in recent years that Evangelicals are critical to our national elections. As New York Times reporter Erik Eckholm pointed out on April 14, Evangelicals accounted for nearly one-fourth of all ballots cast in recent presidential elections. Their lukewarm support for John McCain in 2008with many staying home on Election Day and upwards of 30 percent of their 18-29 year-olds casting votes for Obama (Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research)helped give the White House to...

    See the video and learn more at Ann Romney raised 5 boys. She successfully battled breast cancer and multiple sclerosis. But what does White House insider Hilary Rosen say about Ann Romney? "Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life." And Bill Maher, who gave $1 million supporting Obama, attacks: "Ann Romney has never gotten her ass out of the house." Happy Mother's Day from Barack Obama's Team!

    Almost four years ago, I was watching Sarah Palin rile up a Clearwater, Fla., crowd with anti-Obama broadsides when a spectator let loose a bloodcurdling cry of "kill him!" To his credit, John McCain realized the Obama hatred was getting out of hand, and a few days later, when a woman at one of his events called Obama an "Arab," McCain did one of the most honorable things in his political career. "No, ma'am," he said, taking the microphone from the woman and enduring some boos from supporters. "He's a decent, family-man citizen that I just happen to have disagreements...

    -Romney willfully authorized tax-funded elective abortions (from the Open Letter to Rush Limbaugh at The following attorneys, law professors and other holders of advanced degrees in law or constitutional theory are among the many who state here (or have previously stated in their own words) that Romney's claim that judges somehow changed Massachusetts' marriage laws and he was "forced" or had legal authority to bypass the Legislature and violate the marriage statutes with his orders imposing homosexual "marriage" in Massachusetts, is legally absurd and false.* Most have also stated that -- based on his record -- Mitt Romney is...

    Larry Kudlow asks the most pertinent question about Ron Paul's continuing efforts on the campaign trail after Mitt Romney has all but wrapped up the GOP nomination, which is what Paul hopes to accomplish by continuing to contest it. Paul says he's not ready to follow Rick Santorum's lead by endorsing Romney in the near future ... and why should he? He's raising money with a low burn rate, grabbing enough delegates to have the party establishment worried, and putting himself in position to force some policy changes in the party platform. Ron Paul is having the time of his...

    The conventional wisdom about Mitt Romneys vice-presidential short list, according to a handful of Romney insiders, may be wrong. Instead of picking a straitlaced Midwestern senator such as Ohios Rob Portman, or an outspoken northeastern Republican governor such as Chris Christie, there is a chance Romney will tap an evangelical from the South. And the name on the lips of Romney friends and supporters isnt a rising southern senator or a current Dixie governor. He has been out of office for five years, resides on a beach in the Florida panhandle, and hosts a television show. In other words, Mike...

    Here are the remarks as I was reading them via the teleprompter control screen during Mitts speech. It was very interesting to see how many times Mitt added parts to the speech that were not in the prompter and also how many times he simply changed the wording on the fly. Id love to get a chance sometime to see if President Obama does the same thing or if he stays 100% true to the prompter.

    You can almost hear the collective gasp from Ron Paul's loyal band of supporters. Speaking Monday at a town hall style-meeting event in Cleveland, presumptive GOP presidential Mitt Romney plunged a fork into the idea that he could come around to embracing Mr. Paul's call for deep cuts in federal spending. "My job is to get America back on track to have a balanced budget. Now I'm not going to cut $1 trillion in the first year," he said, distancing himself from Mr. Paul's ( plan to slice more than a quarter of the estimated $3.8 trillion being spent by...

    Not only did Tea Party-backed Richard Mourdock just put an end to Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar's 35-year U.S. Senate career, but it wasn't even close. NBC projected Mourdock, the Indiana state treasurer, the winner of the Republican primary shortly after polls closed, as he was trouncing Lugar by over 20 points. In and of itself, the crushing defeat of such a long-time veteran of the Senate would be a big story, but the importance of this development will be felt way beyond Indiana. As I wrote earlier this week, a lot of pundits have been prematurely writing the obituary to...

    Campaigning in the backyard of America's auto industry, Mitt Romney re-ignited the bailout debate by suggesting he deserves "a lot of credit" for the recent successes of the nation's largest car companies. That claims comes in spite of his stance that Detroit should have been allowed to go bankrupt. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee told a Cleveland television station on Monday that President Barack Obama followed his lead when he ushered auto companies through a managed bankruptcy soon after taking office.

At his campaign rallies, it was commonplace to see supporters fainting, overcome with raw emotion. Obamas 2008 campaign was fueled by an amazing combination of energy and optimism rarely seen in American politics.
