  • Obamacare architect’s “stupid” voter remarks create real problems (especially with a GOP Congress)

    The recent comments by an architect of Obamacare have created real problems for supporters of the act as Republicans win sweeping elections and pledge to hold hearings to roll back some of its measures. MIT economist and Affordable Care Act architect Jonathan Gruber created quite a stir recently when he attributed the success in pasting legislation for it to the “stupidity of the American voter.” The comments took place at an academic conference last year and is only just now becoming public, and Republicans are seizing on it as they seek to attack the ACA, according to the Boston Globe....
  • Mitt Romney: Not Healthy Congress Hasn't Passed Amnesty

    On Friday, failed 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney said it wasn't healthy that Congress has not passed amnesty legislation that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers. "I do believe it's important for us, before the presidential contest in 2016, to finally have immigration reform in place," Romney said, according to The Des Moines Register's Jennifer Jacobs. "I just don't think it's healthy for the country to continue to have this issue open and unresolved, particularly with so many families that are waiting for the answers." Romney said he was not for a "special"...

    Former senior aides to Mitt Romney have hit back at the 'craven hypocrites' in the Republican party who just days before the election were clamouring for jobs in a Romney administration and are now belittling him. 'There were one or two well-known figures who were late committing to support him, were the most eager to curry favour when it looked like we would win and are now out there trashing the governor. (snip) But the other senior adviser, who declined to be named when criticising senior Republicans, singled out Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Newt Gingrich as among those...

    Townhall.com ^ | November 21, 2012 | Brent Bozell
    The post mortems on the presidential campaign continue to pour in, the ones on the botched Romney effort the more interesting (and more depressing for those of us who supported him). President Obama was clearly vulnerable, and Mitt Romney clearly positioned to defeat him. So what went wrong? Let me add my analysis. Three words: Message. Messenger. Messaging. The messenger was flawed, unwilling to take risks, unprepared for the Obama political wrecking machine, left dazed and confused Election Night. If inept messaging could be deemed a felony, this campaign was a crime against humanity. I've never seen worse commercials more...
  • Gingrich Calls Romney’s Planned Speech ‘Presumptuous’ and ‘Insulting’

    ABC ^ | 2-24-12 | Dover
    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is hinging his troubled and indebted campaign on a win in Delaware tonight, telling reporters following him in North Carolina that he “will have something to say this evening once we see some results from today.” Gingrich hit the presumptive nominee, Mitt Romney, for giving a speech titled, “A Better America Begins Tonight,” which a senior Romney adviser said will show Romney in a “new light.” The senior adviser added that the general election campaign has begun. “I think it’s a very substantial mistake for Gov. Romney to be pretending these primaries aren’t occurring and...
  • Further Proof Romney Supported a National Individual Mandate In 2009

    RedState.com ^ | March 3rd, 2012 | Erick Erickson
    As I mentioned yesterday, back in 2009 Mitt Romney took to the pages of USA Today to tell President Obama that as he came up with a healthcare plan he should consider using “tax penalties” as Massachusetts did or “tax credits, as others have proposed” to help cover the costs of health care. The “tax penalties” is Mitt Romney’s individual mandate, a key portion the Obama Administration has credited all along as having been embraced in Obamacare. Since pointing out yesterday that, in his own words, Mitt Romney supported a national individual mandate, his supporters have gone totally insane on...

    "Whoa Nellie! Where did THIS come from? The Fox News network, with its deep bench of producers, associate producers and “investigative journalists” didn’t have access to these video clips? Of course they did. The truth is that this is about as scandalous as the Machiavellianism their sister company Sky News engaged in their phone tapping/hacking scandal that caused Rupert Murdoch’s son James to resign in humiliation. Fox news apparently sat on these clips as though they didn’t exist – just as they CONCEALED the fact they damned well knew – that Mitt Romney repeatedly lied to us and his challengers...

    . . . . . Romney’s Jobs’ Initiative Worsened the Housing Crisis in Massachusetts So when President Bush’s administration was attempting to regulate GSEs to avert a financial crisis, Governor Romney’s affordable housing policies in Massachusetts were significantly contributing to the bad assets on the books of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. According to data from the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston the number of subprime mortgage originations in Massachusetts spiked between 2003 and 2006 during Romney’s tenure as Governor of Massachusetts. Given that there were prominent conservative whistle-blowers warning about the potential dangers of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,...

    Rick Santorum entered into a shouting match on Neil Cavuto‘s show Friday afternoon, yelling in apparent frustration at the Fox News host after he’d been asked about his recent comment that we “might as well” have another term for Barack Obama than take a risk on Mitt Romney in the White House.

    Hot Air ^ | March 22, 2012 | Ed Morrissey
    As someone who supports Rick Santorum for President, and who will caucus tomorrow in the next phase of Minnesota’s political process as a delegate, I understand the need to replace Barack Obama in 2012 in order to right the American ship of state and address the serious problems that Obama has either created, amplified, or ignored over the last three years. I do, however, wonder whether Senator Santorum understands that need. Yesterday, as Allahpundit noted with excellent analysis, Santorum told a Louisiana audience that if Mitt Romney won the nomination, we’d be better off sticking with what we’ve already got:...
  • Did Sununu Feign Romney's Tax & Spend Record to Fox News' Martha MacCallum?

    The Cypress Times ^ | March 22, 2012 | Tricia Erickson
    On today’s Martha MacCallum Fox News Channel interview, former (liberal state) New Hampshire Governor John Sununu made astonishing statements on Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts record that look to be the opposite of what Mitt Romney’s actual record has been reported to be. But don’t take my word for it, you decide: Sununu stated that as Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney cut spending and taxes: Romney consistently likes to paint himself as a turnaround artist in Massachusetts claiming he “closed a nearly $3 billion budget deficit without raising taxes” while Governor. The facts do not back this up. According to Jason Szep...

    WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney sought to use the coveted endorsement of Jeb Bush on Wednesday to amplify his call for Republicans to rally behind his candidacy and get on with the mission of ousting President Obama............... But if the endorsement held the potential to further choke off the oxygen to Mr. Santorum’s insurgent candidacy, the Romney campaign inadvertently gave Mr. Santorum a new supply when a senior adviser went on CNN and seemed to suggest that Mr. Romney’s conservative positions in the primary season could change like an Etch a Sketch drawing. “I think you hit a reset button for...

    Another Tuesday, another failure by Mitt Romney to line up the party faithful behind him. Not only did Romney lose yesterday's contests in Alabama and Mississippi, but he finished third in both, putting him behind Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich. Even though Romney remains well ahead in the delegate count and even though he'll still likely win the nomination, he just can't put those nagging doubts among conservatives to rest. CNN political contributor Paul Begala writes for The Daily Beast that Romney has gone from inevitable to unelectable: "Somebody strap him to the roof of one of his Cadillacs and...

    Mitt Romney’s transformation into a cheesy grits- and catfish-loving, ya’ll-uttering good ol’ boy in the face of tight contests in Mississippi and Alabama today is being panned by critics — skeptical Southern party officials and pundits. “If you’re going to pander, at least pander well, and this isn’t pandering well,” said Stephen Gordon, a Republican consultant based in Birmingham, Ala. The former Bay State governor is a Yankee, Gordon said, and will always face skepticism no matter how many catfish filets he raves about. “People in the Deep South have a bit of a natural distrust for Northerners, especially folks...

    Hot on the heels of his eight-vote Iowa-caucus landslide, Willard Mitt Romney is crisscrossing New Hampshire before Tuesday's key primary. Romney is masquerading as a limited-government, free-market executive from next-door Massachusetts. From the Golden Gate to the Granite State, voters should greet Romney's impersonation with a quarry full of skepticism. In fact, Romney increased taxes by $309 million, mainly on corporations. These tax hikes, described by Romney apologists as loophole closures, totaled $128 million in 2003, $95.5 in 2004, and $85 million in 2005. That final year, Romney proposed $170 million in higher business taxes, the Boston Globe reports. However,...
  • Romney loses temper at campaign stop in Chicago when questioned about role in same-sex "marriage"

    On Tuesday, March 6 , Sandy Rios, talk-show host of WYLL in Chicago (AM 1160) attended a meeting with Mitt Romney, attended by about a dozen people. The meeting was very cordial and calm until she asked her question to Gov. Romney. Sandy asked a question about Romney's actions after the same-sex "marriage" ruling by the Mass. Supreme Judicial Court (which were reported in an Associated Press article and are well documented). She asked why Romney had the marriage certificates printed up with "Partner A and Partner B" instead of "husband and wife", even though there was no mandate (from...
