    On Hannity's show "Hannity's America," last night I could swear that near the end of his show he asked those on the invited panel "Is this Reagan versus Carter?" Did anyone watch his show last night and hear this, as he said this pretty fast? As if Romney is Reagan. Obama is Carter, but Romney is no Reagan. Romney is a Rinocrat.

    After edging out Rockefeller 51% to 49% in the winner-take-all race in California, Goldwater had a huge majority of delegates, enough to easily win the nomination at the Republican convention. George Romney set about denouncing Goldwater, and even raised a stink at the convention to have Goldwater′s delegates disqualified. Romney was accusing many of Goldwater′s delegates as being everything from racists, members of the Ku-Klux-Klan, the John Birch Society and even accused some of being Communists! Imagine that! Once Goldwater was named the presidential nominee, George Romney still worked to undermine his campaign, refusing to endorse or support him. So...

    Mitt Romney was firm and direct with the abortion rights advocates sitting in his office nine years ago, assuring the group that if elected Massachusetts governor, he would protect the states abortion laws. Then, as the meeting drew to a close, the businessman offered an intriguing suggestion that he would rise to national prominence in the Republican Party as a victor in a liberal state and could use his influence to soften the GOPs hard-line opposition to abortion. He would be a good voice in the party for their cause, and his moderation on the issue would be widely...

Mitt Romney is worth a staggering $250 Million and is a banker in every sense of the term.

    I can't keep up with what Romney is supposedly going to go with concerning illegals. First it was the ridiculous idea from Romney that illegals will self-deport. Remember Daniel D. Portado? Then there was the buzz that some kind of Kobach plan would emerge. Now there is supposedly going to be some type of Rubio Quasi-Dream Act. Who knows what Romney is going to go with. I guess more poll testing, and/or focus group work from the Romney campaign is needed before a plan emerges.

    Fourth, Remember the Difference Between Republicans and Conservatives. Conservatives look at the endorsements Mitt Romney has garnered from such establishment figures as former President George H.W. Bush and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and most importantly from business-as-usual Washington insiders, such as lobbyist Ed Gillespie, and they see advocates of positions they often opposed, not friends of the transformational agenda that won the Tea Party wave election of 2010. Surveying Romneys record and agenda, and most importantly the people he is likely to bring to Washington to implement his agenda, movement conservatives see little likelihood a Romney administration will differ...

Dems are attempting to use Ann Romney's words against her.

While I was governor, Romney said, 85 percent of the people on a form of welfare assistance in my state had no work requirement. I wanted to increase the work requirement. I said, for instance, that even if you have a child two years of age, you need to go to work. And people...

Team Obama is hoping to use the recent fight over mandated insurance coverage for contraception to broaden the...

Now completely dominated by acolytes of the Bush family, the Republican Party at the national level has no real philosophical core it is merely about holding onto power. But this is not power as it is understood in high school civics classes the ability to use the levers of government by holding elective or appointive office.

    The basic reason Romney should be opposed by conservatives is that Romney is not a conservative. More specifically, Romney is the author of the $50 abortion, the originator of the gay marriage license, and the founder of big government-forced health care. Those 3 are a mix of social and fiscal issues. The conclusion is that Romney is neither a fiscal conservative nor a social conservative. His tenure as governor of Massachusetts proves that point. Now, as Romney is touted as the “etch-a-sketch” candidate who will shortly begin his tack to the left, principled conservatives will do well to begin listing...

    While Mitt Romney was governor of Massachusetts, he signed into law the "Massachusetts Climate Protection Plan." So not only has Romney taken the lead on imposing universal health care, but also on combating climate change.

I have begun analysis of the Massachusetts Climate Protection Plan, and may follow this up later with my thoughts. Until then, here are some comments from Governor Romney and Secretary Foy on the law. Since taking office in January 2003, this...

    As the nation faces a crucial election in a little over six months, the Republican Party appears to be caving in on a social issue that many conservatives consider of major import: same-sex marriage. What the GOP felt strongly enough about some 16 years ago to lead the fight for passage of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), many members are beginning to consider an issue open to compromise. Not only do many Republican House and Senate members consider gay marriage a dead issue, according to Politico.com, but Republican leadership has evolved to the point that it has quietly...

    As Mitt Romney prepares for his second presidential campaign and gay marriage threatens to undermine Americas Judeo-Christian culture, theres a raging debate about the role he played in instituting gay marriage in Massachusetts during his gubernatorial term. This is important because Governor Romney has positioned himself as a champion of traditional values and claims to have been an opponent of homosexual marriage his entire career. When the Massachusetts Supreme Court issued a decision in favor of homosexual marriage, the Goodridge case Romney unilaterally ordered his state agencies to implement homosexual marriage in Massachusetts. The court did not order...

    Half of all Americans now express unfavorable views of Mitt Romney, a new high for the GOP presidential hopeful in Washington Post-ABC News polling. The deteriorating public impressions of the former Massachusetts governor foreshadow a significant obstacle for him as he tries to shift the focus of his campaign toward a potential match-up against President Obama. Romneys negative numbers have jumped around this election cycle, but the overall pattern is similar to his trajectory four years ago: As he became better known, his unfavorables shot up far more rapidly than his positive numbers. Negative impressions are up eight percentage points...

Television cameras showed rows of empty chairs as Romney rehashed many of the policies and quips hed used in previous speeches, made a few jokes that appeared to fall flat with the audience and said that his wife, Ann, drives a couple of Cadillacs, which will likely give Democrats more ammunition for their depiction of him as rich and out of touch. The former Massachusetts governor also repeated...
  • A Stern Warning to the Conservative Elites about Mitt Romney

    A Stern Warning to the “Conservative Elites” about Mitt RomneyThrough their silence, the elites are assisting a political cancer that has profound consequences for our children and grandchildrenWe write the following because we must oppose the deception of the American people by powerful and influential conservatives. Many in the conservative grassroots no longer trust the “conservative” media, lawyers and leaders, whom they see as serving the GOP establishment regardless of the will of the conservative base, regardless of the truth. Most of us are not allied with any presidential candidate. But we are troubled by the unethical and Orwellian cover-up...

    I posted last night and again this morning that Rick Santorum had a terrible debate. But its fair also to point out that many of the shots Romney scored on Santorum were cheap shots, as pointed out by George Neumayr at The American Spectator (h/t reader OccamsrazorX): "Romney, at his most hypocritical, labored hard to present himself as more socially conservative than Santorum, noting that Rick had voted for Planned Parenthood funding. Astonishingly, Santorum missed his chance at a return upper cut. Why didnt he mention that Romney once gave money to Planned Parenthood from his own pocket? Why didnt...
  • Mitt Romney: Labor unions play an important role in our society

    Just as Rick Santorum has pointedly and repeatedly reminded voters that Mitt Romney supported an individual health care mandate and the Wall Street bailouts, so Mitt Romney has sought to remind voters that Rick Santorum has been cozy with Big Labor in the past. In his attacks on Santorum, Romney has sounded unequivocally anti-labor, which no doubt has not helped him much in Michigan. Today, though, the former Massachusetts governor displayed a nuanced perspective on labor unions, characterizing himself as pro-union-worker but anti-union-bosses. His first line Labor unions play an important role in our society might seem to...

    First Things ^ | February 15, 2012 | James R. Rogers
    Speaking at a campaign event on Monday, February 13 in Mesa, Arizona, Mitt Romney made a bold suggestion about the Constitution and Declaration of Independence: They're either inspired by God or written by brilliant people or perhaps a combination of both. Inspired by God? It sounds like just another sop tossed to Tea-Party constitutionalism, but Romney was in fact invoking a longstanding Mormon doctrine which views the U.S. Constitution as not only great, but literally divine.

    Governor Mitt Romney has signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that he says will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on these guns. 'Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts," Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1 with legislators, sportsmen's groups and gun safety advocates. "These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people." Like the federal assault weapons ban, the state ban, put in place in 1998, was scheduled to expire in September. The new...

    Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich previewed a new line of attack against former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney: hitting him on gun rights. In a new web site, romneyguns.com, Gingrich poked fun at Romney for his much-ridiculed 2008 comment that he hunts small varmints. The site features a graphic of a suit-wearing Romney holding a gun and wearing a hunting cap. The site charges that Romney supported the Brady Bill, which mandated federal background checks on gun buyers, raised fees for Massachusetts gun owners, and supported tough gun laws in Massachusetts. A Gingrich video shows a series of news clips, including...

    This image says it all. A Dogs Against Romney Pack Member was stopped by the Littleton, Colorado police yesterday for having a dog crate on the roof of his car. The Pack Member , identified only as "Oredigger," was on his way to protest at a Mitt Romney event yesterday with the crate atop his car carrying a stuffed toy dog when the police officer, believing he was actually transporting a live dog on the roof of his car, stopped him. Says Oredigger, "I was pulled over for suspected animal abuse."

    "He could have stopped it, and should have stopped it," Huckabee said. CNSNews.com: Governor Romney should have stood up to the Court and said, "No"? Huckabee: He should've. (August 2008) Old news? Yes and Mitt Romney hopes it will be ignored or forgotten. How does Romney manage to bury his past political sins? With a lot of help from his former critics including Governor Huckabee who seem to suffer from amnesia. But what of the media's duty to vet the candidates? Shouldn't every significant action in a candidate's record be under review? Why is the media ...
