  • Axelrod: The Perception That We're Negative is...Romney's Fault

    Good luck with this argument, Axe: Axelrod Says Their Attack Ads Aren't Why People Think They're Running Negative CampaignScarborough's chuckle is perfect.  The Obama campaign has outspent Romney overall, besting the Republican by a 3-to-1 margin on battleground television ads thus far.  More than three-quarters of those ads have been negative, and many of those negative ads have been debunked as false by independent fact-checkers.  Now that Romney and his allies have hit back with ads correcting the record and pointing out the death of 'hope and change," Axelrod is blaming them for the public perception that Obama's gone mega...

    A visit to a therapist might be necessary to help conservatives work through their issues with the current frontrunner. What if Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination for president in 2012? A vast majority of conservatives become anxiety-ridden at the mere posing of this question, and many go ballistic at the thought of it actually happening. So a quick visit to a therapist may be helpful. Imagine yourself lying on a couch in the spring of 2012 with soothing music playing in the background. News breaks that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has clinched the Republican nomination for president. Your...

    The New Republic ^ | 04/20/2011 | Ed Kilgore
    During the 2008 election cycle, Mitt Romney was often accused of treating politics more like a consumer-focused business than an exercise in leadership. My view is, we ought to double Guantanamo, he said, radiating the sense that if primary voters wanted something, anything, hed be willing to sell it. His strategists obsessed about creating and selling Brand Romney. To many, these efforts made him look like a crass twit, a market researchers caricature of the perfect Republican candidate, even as he came in second-place for the GOP nomination. This election, however, Romney may have to compete with Donald Trump.

    I highly doubt Donald Trump is presidential material, but he sure makes for one great Republican attack dog. Finally a celebrity big enough to get the attention of Americans outside of the conservative community is speaking out against Obamas shady past. After once again raising legitimate concerns over Obamas sham birth certificate during an appearance on the Fax News program Hannity, Trump expressed alarm over Obamas real estate dealings with convicted Chicago influence peddler Antoin Tony Rezco. For those of you who still havent heard, Obamas Chicago home that he bought in 2005 was located on a property split into...

    To hear The Donald tell it, he totally trumps President Barack Obama as a messenger and far outweighs Mitt Romney as a businessman. Riding a surge in the polls recently, Donald Trump let loose on CNNs State of the Union on Sunday, blaming Mr. Obama for soaring oil prices and disparaging Mr. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and his potential rival for the 2012 Republican nomination, as basically small business guy. Showing his usual flair for letting it rip, Mr. Trump said the U.S. had become a laughingstock throughout the world under Mr. Obama. Were he president, Mr. Trump said,...

    This time, Mitt Romney has a clear pitch: I'm the strongest Republican to challenge President Barack Obama on the country's single biggest issue the economy. "He created a deeper recession, and delayed the recovery," Romney said Saturday, previewing his campaign message before Republicans in this influential early nominating state. "The consequence is soaring numbers of Americans enduring unemployment, foreclosures and bankruptcies. This is the Obama Misery Index, and it is at a record high." "It's going to take more than new rhetoric to put Americans back to work it's going to take a new president," said the former...

    Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor, is among the more natural populist politicians of our time, frequently critiquing elites in the press, the Democratic Party, and the Republican establishment. It is one of the reasons along with her working-class background and the sense of authenticity that she can often convey that she is so popular with some voters. One potential problem for Ms. Palin, however, is that plenty of well-to-do and well-educated voters those whom we might think of as belonging to the elite will be participating in the Republican primaries. Three recent surveys of Republican...

Castle's net favorability is 25 points higher than O'Donnell's. That electability gap is even wider than what we saw a month ago when Castle did 20 points better against Coons than O'Donnell.

    Yes, children Sarah Palin really can become president of the United States. Take a look at yesterday's CNN poll. It shows Mitt Romney just three points ahead of Irish American Palin right before the kickoff for the 2012 republican nomination which begins the day after the November mid-terms. That three points is within the margin of error. It is also within the margin of error of those pundits who say that Palin has no chance to be selected. They are dead wrong and this poll bears that out. This poll says otherwise, as do a slew of results, including last...

The report, filed with the Federal Election Commission, shows that Palins political action committee raised more money in the second quarter of this year $866,000 than it had in any previous three-month stretch since Palin formed the group in January 2009. The committee, Sarah PAC, also spent...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 07/08/2010 | John Ellis
    Sarah Palin cranked up her 2012 presidential campaign another notch today, with the release of a campaign video aimed directly at women. The basic math is simple. If she gets half of the female primary voters and caucus attenders to support her, then she standing starts at roughly 25% of the total vote. Throw in a third of the male vote and she's at roughly 40%. Forty percent wins the Iowa caucuses, handily. Which then sets up New Hampshire as the place where the not-Sarah candidate emerges. In all likelihood, that will be former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who finished...

In a survey of more than three dozen grass-roots tea party leaders from 29 states, the partys...

No wonder Poizner recently told me, "She wants to be ordained." After pouring $39...

Appearing on CBS's "Face the Nation," McCain said Republicans should "say we'd be willing to start over from the beginning," saying the party would like to address malpractice reform, and transportability of coverage across state lines. "There are many things we can do," McCain suggested.

    The Reality Check ^ | 2010-01-23 | Zbigniew Mazurak
    Paul Streitz has decided to call Sarah Palin by her real name, because she endorsed John McCain (who is trying to win a fifth term as Senator) and said she will campaign for him. Fanatic Palinites, such as the editors of the misnamed website (they should rename it, lambasted him and called him a backstabber. If Paul Streitzs support of Governor Palin is contingent upon his agreeing with every decision she makes or her selling out her deeply-held values, thats unfortunate. While all support is appreciated, the governor has never been for sale. Ask the Alaska establishment, who...

    Politico ^ | January 20, 2009 | Jeanne Cummings and Erika Lovely
    Before the votes were even counted, her fellow Democrats had compiled a list of reasons why Martha Coakley had struggled: anemic retail politics, a blind-eye to shifting momentum and an inexplicable appearance on a sports talk radio show that led her to misidentify a Red Sox star. There was truth to them all. But they also glossed over an obstacle that received far less attention in her losing bid for the Senate: a glass ceiling that remains almost impenetrable, even in the blue state of Massachusetts. To get an idea of how mind-bending the gender dynamics in this campaign were,...

    The upper echelon of Republican Scott Browns Senate campaign in Massachusetts is filled with staffers who once worked in former Gov. Mitt Romneys employ. But with the eyes of the nation on the states Jan. 19 special Senate election and with other Republican luminaries such as Rudy Giuliani traipsing through Massachusetts for Brown in recent days Romney himself has been conspicuously absent. Despite his status as one of the GOPs most prominent national figures and a prospective 2012 presidential candidate, the former Massachusetts governor hasnt appeared publicly with Brown since late October. Back then, when almost no one...

    His supporters say the book will show Romney is more thoughtful than Sarah Palin. BY KENNETH T. WALSH Friends of Mitt Romney say his upcoming book, No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, is a lengthy and detailed explanation of his philosophy and should be a fitting prelude to a 2012 presidential campaign if Romney decides to run. The book, which comes out March 2, seems designed to position Romney as a thoughtful conservative who has ruminated carefully about the major issues of the day, ranging from the global economy to national security. Romney supporters say it will serve as...
