    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...
  • Trump: Media are biggest threat to Romney's presidential campaign

    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...

    Washington Post ^ | 5/29/2012 | Jennifer Rubin
    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...

    Here we go again. Donald Trump has revived the issue concerning whether, or not, Barack Hussein Obama was born in the U.S. Wolfe Blitzer calls his remarks "ridiculous". The media is excoriating him and tying him to Romney, in an attempt to embarrass the Romney campaign at best or hurt Romney's election chances at worst. Now, here's my question: With all the money and resources that Donald Trump has, why can he not get to the bottom of this thing once and for all? We can say that the powers that be are covering up for Prez dude. But, most...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Finally, there is definitive proof: The presidential candidate was born in the United States, and his father was not. 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. So on a day when real estate and media mogul Donald Trump was trying to help Mitt...

    Donald Trump is many things, but in the political world, he has made his recent name on being a birther. This argued Rachel Maddow last night, giving him credit for being a great asset to Mitt Romney’s campaign but questioning the morality of having a birther be a great asset to one’s campaign. What to do, Maddow asked, when “the single best known household name to speak up” for you also thinks the President is a “Kenyan Usurper”? “Nobody can be responsible for the views of all their supporters,” Maddow noted, arguing that if you, the viewer, had wacky beliefs...

    Former candidate Newt Gingrich and billionaire businessman Donald Trump will join presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney at a campaign event on Tuesday at Trump’s International Hotel in Las Vegas, according to CNN. Trump, who told Newsmax Wednesday that he is considering launching his own super PAC to produce anti-Obama ads, announced in February that he was backing Romney after his own flirtation with running for the White House. He even enjoyed a brief turn in the polls as the frontrunner. Romney's campaign is raffling a chance to have dinner with Trump for supporters. Playing off Trump’s popular television show...

    Sunday, Newt Gingrich will be on Meet the Press as a Romney surrogate. Tuesday, Newt will be campaigning with Mitt Romney and Donald Trump in Las Vegas. Could Romney be testing the Newt for VP waters? Nobody, gets TV news ratings like Gingrich. Nobody can be a campaign pitbull like Gingrich. Newt can sing many songs on TV news. The other GOP VP candidates are milk toast next to Newt. Is it possible?

    “A book publisher came out three days ago and said that in his written synopsis of his book,” Trump went on, “he said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia. His mother never spent a day in the hospital.” “That’s what he told the literary agent,” Trump insisted. “That’s the way life works… He didn’t know he was running for president, so he told the truth. The literary agent wrote down what he said… He said he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia… Now they’re saying it was a mistake. Just like his Kenyan grandmother said...

    Barack Obama opened last night’s White House Correspondents Dinner – an annual chuckle-fest with D.C. reporters and pop culture celebrities – with a pair of jokes and a wink about his supposed Hawaii birthplace. 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...

    Jenna Talackova, the Canadian beauty queen, won’t have to fight Donald Trump for a chance to compete for the Miss Universe Canada title after all, even though she was born a he. Talackova is everything you think of when you hear the words “beauty queen.” With her bright smile, flowing blonde hair and viciously long legs, you can’t deny she’s stunning. But Talackova, 23, was first disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada competition because she was born a male, according to CTV. Talackova was originally selected as one of 65 finalists for the Donald Trump-owned competition and her profile and...
