  • Five things Obama must do to avoid lame-duck status ["It's not personal"]

    The Hill ^ | December 31, 2013 | Amie Parnes
    President Obama endured a terrible 2013, raising GOP hopes of a Senate takeover in next year’s midterm elections that would turn him into an early lame duck. The GOP needs to win six seats in the upper chamber to take a 51-49 edge, something clearly obtainable with Democrats defending difficult seats in South Dakota, Montana, West Virginia, Arkansas, Alaska, Louisiana and North Carolina. With the Senate and House in GOP hands, Obama would have little if any hope of moving his legislative agenda, and would be left to play defense against a GOP Congress in his final two years in...

    Twenty years ago, millions of Americans were cocking their ears — waiting to hear a "giant sucking sound."They feared Mexico would begin vacuuming up U.S. manufacturing jobs as soon as President Clinton signed the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, on Dec. 8, 1993. The "sucking sound" famously had been forecast in 1992 by Ross Perot, the businessman turned independent presidential candidate.Clinton won the election, and began pushing for NAFTA's passage. He promised the sprawling trade agreement would become a wealth generator as it pulled together the economies of Canada, the United States and Mexico.Who turned out to be...
  • Guess Which Texas Billionaire Just Donated $1 Million to Planned Parenthood

    Plutocrat and former third party presidential candidate Ross Perot donated $1 million to Planned Parenthood of Texas, to help fill the gap left by the state’s defunding of the Women’s Health Program. “For nearly 100 years Planned Parenthood has helped to educate men and women regarding family planning and general family health,” said Margot Perot, speaking for the Perot Foundation of Dallas. “Our family has supported this nonprofit for many years because we are impressed with the work they do—providing birth control; scientifically based education; breast health exams; and basic, life-saving healthcare for women who cannot afford services otherwise.” In...
  • Ross Perot Steps Up for Beleaguered Texas Planned Parenthood [Donates $1 million[

    NY Magazine ^ | 30 August 2013 | Kat Stoeffel
    Billionaire and former presidential candidate Ross Perot’s foundation announced yesterday that it will donate $1 million to Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, the Huffington Post reports. Governor Rick Perry cut off the women’s health network’s state and federal funding last year — including funds that went to its preventative and basic health-care programs for uninsured women — citing the overarching pro-abortion stance. (He called this a “win for women.”) The abortion restrictions signed into law in June have already closed three Planned Parenthood clinics. Perot’s wife Margot said in a written statement that the foundation recognized “the need to further...

    Despite his losses in the Alabama and Mississippi primaries, Mitt Romney appears to have expanded his delegate lead on Tuesday. The most recent projections from AP show Rick Santorum took 31 delegates from Alabama and Mississippi, while Newt Gingrich took 24 delegates and Romney got 23 But this morning, Romney was projected to win all nine delegates from American Samoa’s caucuses, and he also won the Hawaii caucuses by a large margin. AP projections show Romney beat Santorum 18 delegates to four in those jurisdictions. So, as of this morning, Romney has won 41 delegates from Tuesday’s contests, compared to...

    When the Tea Party first started out, I was a enthusiastic supporter.. The Tea Party perfectly represented what my views are.. I'm a 100% fiscal conservative and I believe in small government on ALL issues. In the beginning, the Tea Party seemed to be such movement that would support candidates based on FISCAL issues. Initially, that was the case and people like Scott Brown have been elected. However, since then, it seems like the Tea Party Express and other Tea Party organizations have been hijacked by the social conservative wing of the GOP (i.e. Sarah Palin).

  • Ron Paul Emerging as Ross Perot’s Doppelganger

    Ron Paul’s straw poll “victory” at last weeks American Conservative Union’s CPAC convention was surprising. It leads one to believe conservatives retain the ability to snap defeat from the jaws of victory this coming Fall. Ann Coulter reflects the opinion of many conservatives when she claims agreement with Ron Paul on almost all issues except for foreign policy goals. Paul, who has Pat Buchanan isolationist tendencies, claims to be an economic libertarian and has many credentials, which support that claim. He is a member, for example, of the Ludwig Von Mises Institute. Von Mises and, later, F.H. Hayek, contributed greatly...

    Reuters ^ | 11/30/2009 | James Pethokoukis
    If former CNN anchorman Lou Dobbs decides to make an independent bid for president in 2012, he will probably find the political climate as hospitable for an insurgent run — if not more so — as it was in 1992, when Ross Perot captured a fifth of the popular vote. (It was the best showing by a third-party candidate since Bull Moose Teddy Roosevelt finished second with 27.4 percent of the vote in 1912.) The dreary economic New Normal that is the aftermath of the Great Recession has created a huge political opening for Dobbs or Michael Bloomberg or Sarah...

    Former CNN anchor Lou Dobbs has indicated that he might consider an independent bid for the White House in 2012, and early polling shows he could attract up to 14% of the vote. However, some of that is almost certainly a generic protest vote as an unnamed “some other candidate” picks up between six percent (6%) and nine percent (9%) of the vote in similar 2012 match-ups. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that if the choice is between President Obama, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and Dobbs, Obama leads 42% to 34% with Dobbs pulling 14% of...

    Once again a familiar scenario is being played out. Memories fade as to how bad liberal governance can be, and a liberal Democrat is elected president. Once in office, the failure of policies based on what liberals would like the world to be (instead of what experience has shown) becomes obvious, and dissatisfaction with this nonsense rises. In Obama's case we have the added specter of his obvious hatred for his own country and his desire to right imagined wrongs to add to the mix. Please, please, conservatives, I beg of you.

Barr decided to hold a press conference of his own down the hall.

    At least one source is saying people in the camp of Hillary Clinton (D-NY) are quietly floating the notion that if the road to the Democratic nomination for president comes to an end in Denver, that may not necessarily mean the end of the road in her pursuit of the White House. Is an independent candidacy a possibility? The speculation comes from U.S. Politics Today. It says, “At the moment, a Clinton independent candidacy is viewed as an idle threat, designed to pressure superdelegates with a party disaster if they don't nominate Clinton.

Perot, who won 19 percent of the vote in the 1992 presidential election, making him one of the strongest third-party candidates in American history, got straight to the point. "Remember what you wrote about John McCain in the March 13, 2000, NEWSWEEK?" "Sure," I lied. "When McCain called Perot 'nuttier than a fruitcake'?"

Clintons win allowed the Democrats to solidify some blue states allowed the Dems to make some states blue. For example NJ, CA, IL, WA, OR were all Republican states until Clinton. Even areas in NY like Westchester and Long Island were all Republican but have become dem because of Clinton. Clintons presidency took away some states from us and we can all point our...

In the slums lining the roads, thousands of people live crammed into dirt-floored rooms, sheltered from monsoon rains by plastic sheets. At the end of the drive is a heavily guarded, new office tower that rises above the slums. This is where Amit, 24, works. "This is Andy. How...

    Lessons of the Bush Defeat: The Conservative Electorate of 1992 by David K. Nichols …what Perot's candidacy did was to give the voters who were dissatisfied with their respective parties a chance to protest without taking the revolutionary step of voting for the other side. Clinton received only 10% of the Republican votes, up a mere 2% from 1988. Almost all of the Republican voters who deserted Bush moved to Perot. This is perhaps the most conclusive sign that Bush lost, rather than Clinton won.If there is agreement on anything about the 1992 election, it is that the election represented...

    According to a book proposal he's circulating, the former Bush spoiler is positioning himself as a voice to reckon with in 2004 -- and maybe more. Aug. 8, 2003 | Is Ross Perot plotting a return to the national stage in time for the 2004 elections? Judging from a well-written 95-page book proposal making its way through the New York publishing circuit, a copy of which arrived unbidden in my e-mail, the crazy aunt in the basement wants to sing again. For connoisseurs of political entertainment, "America the Broken: How to Reform and Revive the Greatest Democracy Ever Known," which...

    The year was 1992. America was in the midst of an economic recession, and a presidential election was looming. The two major parties produced a pair of candidates that had the electorate issuing a collective yawn -- a sitting president who seemed aloof and clueless on how to turn around the sagging economy and a slick-talking governor from Arkansas who seemed to have only a passing familiarity with the truth. Out of nowhere rode a brash little Texas billionaire who ran one of the most successful third-party presidential campaigns in history by spending a great deal of his own money...

    For those who would like to know, Ross Perot is endorsing Rick Perry for governor. I know how many feel about Ross Perot and I don't blame them but Ross did endorse George W. Bush for president and feels Rick Perry would be best for the job. He says the country is at war and needs leadership like Churchill. Patriotism is coming first in people's lives thanks to President Bush and the momentum is shifting. If you have not voted, get out and vote. If you know fence sitters, get them to the polls. If you are a patriot, you...

    Ross Perot convinced Dr. Robert Haley to start studying Gulf War illness in the early 1990s. The Dallas tycoon and former presidential candidate had approached the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, where Haley is head of epidemiology, wanting to fund research into the cause of Gulf War illness. An ardent veterans' advocate, Perot steadfastly has disputed scientists' contention that stress is responsible for Gulf War illness. In January 1997, Haley published three papers in the Journal of the American Medical Association describing the results of the Perot-funded research. Haley had done questionnaire surveys in which he asked...
