    CNBC HOST: Donald, you see the OPEC news this morning? Venezuela wants OPEC to stop pumping more, overproducing, they are saying, that, because Saudi Arabia is pumping above the limits it's supposed to be doing to help us out a little bit and Venezuela is complaining and right now you're looking at oil prices at about back around $82. DONALD TRUMP: That's still very high, Becky, they should be at $30 if you look at free market. I think Saudi Arabia is doing Obama a big favor. Look, you have to do be a favor, I have to get elected,...

    The Wichita Eagle ^ | June 11, 2012 | John Dickerson, Slate’s chief political correspondent.
    Bill Clinton is the great Saint Bernard of politics, bounding around the political landscape, rescuing and providing aid while simultaneously knocking over the table lamp. Last week he hosted the Clinton Global Initiative America meeting, taking a serious look at America’s economic problems. He is also in the thick of the 2012 campaign, raising money for President Obama. The trouble is no one is better at articulating the case for Obama’s re-election – while at the same time occasionally undercutting Obama’s chances. Recently he has been on the wrong end of at least three different statements he has had to...
  • What's this? Obama longs for GOP rival like McCain

    Google/AP ^ | June 2, 2012 | JULIE PACE, AP
    President Barack Obama seems to think that the world of politics would be better if someone like John McCain were running for the White House. It's all a way of drawing a contrast with Obama's current GOP rival, Mitt Romney, and trying to convince crucial independent voters that the former Massachusetts governor is outside the mainstream. But Obama's flattering memories of McCain conflict with their campaign clashes of 2008. Back then, Obama hammered his rival as "out of touch" with many of the problems facing people in the United States. Today's platitudes also conceal the reality of Obama's current dynamic...

    Speaking at the North Carolina GOP Convention, Trump praised Romney for his business experience and promise to stand up against China and fight for American economic interests. But the business mogul also focused a portion of his speech on his questions about where President Obama was born. It is the reason why on Tuesday, when Romney earned the 1,144 delegates necessary to secure his party's nomination, much of the news cycle was devoted to his decision to appear with Trump at a fundraiser that day. A desire by the media to protect Obama is the reason Trump told the more...

    The notion that Donald Trump’s fundraiser is some kind of debacle for Mitt Romney is one more “shiny object” stunt that is a transparent diversion by the Obama campaign so the media will avoid examining President Obama’s record. And it’s yet another indication of just how in-the-tank-for-Obama is so much of the media coverage I find it inconceivable that there are voters out there who will change their votes because Trump raised money for Romney. But relevance doesn’t equal news judgment. Voters, I suspect, aren’t so dim as to disagree with Romney’s comment: “You know, I don’t agree with all...

Yes, Republican Mitt Romney appears eligible to be president, according to a copy of Romney's birth certificate released to Reuters by his campaign. Willard Mitt Romney, the certificate says, was born in Detroit on March 12, 1947. His mother, Lenore, was born in Utah and his father, former Michigan governor and one-time Republican presidential candidate George Romney, was born in Mexico.

He began with more veiled joke alluding to April 28 of last year, when the White House released to the press a copy of his purported long-form birth certificate, a move prompted in part by calls from Donald Trump to see evidence of Obama’s eligibility to be president. “My fellow Americans, we gather during a historic anniversary,” Obama said. “Last year at this time, in fact...

The scholarly and well-substantiated conclusions they drew on the positive results of regulated sport hunting in Africa demonstrated that hunting was not only a valid and necessary wildlife management tool, but that it was also an economic catalyst for many African nations.

But in making the pilgrimage for what was essentially a ring-kissing ceremony inside Trump’s gilded hotel on the Vegas strip, Romney appears to have gone carnival barking up the wrong tree....
