  • Ben Carson: I’m Open to Being Donald Trump's Vice President

    Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said on the day of the New Hampshire primary that he was open to serving as vice president under another candidate, specifically saying that he would be willing to sit down and discuss it with Donald Trump. "Would you be ever open to a VP spot?" asked Fox Business host Neil Cavuto. "I would have to have major philosophical alignment with whoever it was," Carson responded. "I would have to have guarantees that I could do some substantial things." Cavuto asked whether that applied to Donald Trump as well. "I certainly would sit down and...

    One Red State diarist wonders whether Trump’s four-day journey from gracious concession to sober self-reflection about his ground game to shrieking about fraud and a do-over in Iowa to low-key “it’s in the past” dismissal means that he’s actually insane. Old theory: Trump is erratic. New theory: Trump is bananas.I don’t think he’s bananas. I think this is what it looks like when a candidate decides to test out new lines of attack in real time, with the entirety of the media hanging on his every word, instead of with focus groups behind closed doors. In a striking reversal...

    Newt Gingrich told Breitbart News that the country is in rebellion against the coastal power centers and that Donald Trump might be the candidate who can "kick down the doors" of the establishment. Former House speaker Gingrich weighed in on Trump's rise. "I think he represents a different era" in the same conservative movement, Gingrich said. "The system has become so incompetent and outrageously buracratic. The centers of power are so, so in New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles, that the whole rest of the country is in rebellion. And people are looking for somebody who can kick down...

    Terry McAuliffe, the Virginia governor who was former President Bill Clinton's top fundraiser and Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign chair, is being pushed for vice president, possibly creating an extended Clinton family dynasty in America's two top political offices. A Clinton-McAuliffe pairing would be the most friendly ever and a long road from the usual ticket coalition like the 1980 Reagan-Bush ticket. McAuliffe can serve only one-term as governor and will be a third-year lame duck when the Democratic nominee picks a veep next summer. And being a one-term governor isn't a hurdle to higher office. A former Virginia chief executive,...

    Let’s play a game that no longer seems all that much of a game. If Donald Trump does win the Republican presidential nomination, who should he pick as his running mate?(As events develop, I will do similar analyses with other candidates in the presidential position. For now, it’s safe to say Trump would not want to be anybody else’s VP choice, nor, most likely, would the others want to have him.) I have made six possible selections for Trumps’ vice-presidential candidate — all either Latinos, blacks or women. Yes, that’s the wretched identity politics, but those are the areas...

    Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton won the backing of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro on Thursday and said she would seriously consider making the rising Hispanic leader her running mate if she wins her party's nomination. Clinton and the other Democrats in the November 2016 race for the White House have pushed hard for support among Hispanics, a fast-growing and critical voting bloc that has moved toward Democrats in recent elections as Republicans have stymied comprehensive immigration reform in Congress and disparaged Mexican immigrants on the campaign trail. "I am going to look really hard at him for...

    "Though Fiorina did acknowledge Christianity and Judaism in culture, she did not call them "a civilization that was the greatest in the world." She failed to recognize the long track record of Islam and its culture in the Middle East. In fact, understanding that we are a Christian nation, one would think that she would reference the rich heritage of Europe or even our early founding, but instead, two weeks after Islamists attacked America, she decided to praise the culture that spawned them."

Still, you have to admire confidence in a competitor. So who shall it be? The Hill reported on Saturday that there’s really only one choice. Hillary Clinton’s campaign is likely to choose Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Julián Castro or another Hispanic politician to be her running mate, former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros said in...

The dinner honored a top Muslim Brotherhood official affiliated with Hamas named Jamal Barzinji, an inconvenient and overlooked fact for Kaines campaign team. Tim Kaine was the governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010 and then was the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He was on the short-list to become President Obamas running mate. He is now running for Senate and will likely face...

'Have you met Joe Biden?' South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy asked during a Fox News Channel interview. Impeachment talk has swirled around Washington since the president announced that an executive order overhauling America's immigration system is imminent.

    Even before Eric Cantors seismic loss to a political novice backed by the tea party last week, many Republican elders had concluded that Jeb Bush, who really wants to become the third President Bush, wont run in 2016. The emerging consensus explains why some of these party mandarins have launched a new political boomlet touting the ex-Florida governor: Jeb for Veep. At first the notion seems a little weird. While a reliable ideological conservative, Bush is a dreaded mainstream Republican. Worse yet for many on the Right, hes a fervent booster of comprehensive immigration reform.

    The White House and CIA are firmly denying a report that President Obama believes Mitt Romney wants CIA Director David Petraeus as his running mate. And one GOP source doubts Petraeus would even accept. The Drudge Report raised eyebrows when it posted a piece Tuesday (August 7, 2012) alleging President Obama "whispered" to a "top fundraiser" this week that Romney is courting the general-turned-spy. Drudge did not identify the source of the report, citing only an "insider." Shortly after the report went live, White House press secretary Jay Carney tried to torpedo any rumors that Obama made the hushed comment...

    Is it possible that Harry Reid could end up as vice president in a Romney Administration? Yes it is, and here's how it could happen. In order to win the presidency, a candidate must win a simple majority of the 538 available electorate college votes, which amounts to a minimum of 270 or more. Since 538 is divisible by 2, that means that there could be a tie if each candidate should happen to win 269 votes. In the unlikely scenario that there is a split decision in the electoral college, the constitutional solution would be the following: The House...

    bout halfway through last nights debate between Congressman Paul Ryan and Vice President Joe Biden, the VPs answers and his unsteady countenance revealed someone who felt hed lost. Bidens pre-debate spin was that he would enter in attack mode, eager to make up for his bosss universally panned performance the week before. The problem for Biden was that Ryan drew blood fairly early, thus making any attacks seem desperate. In that case, wobbly after a few blows from Ryan that he couldnt effectively answer, Bidens tone took on a yelling quality; the yelling an attack substitute for substantive...

    VP: 'I'm Joe Bidenopoulos' By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | 8/31/12 1:41 PM EDT WARREN, Ohio The vice president strode into a local restaurant here with a message for the Greek-Americans enjoying their lunch: "I'm Joe Bidenopoulos." Ask George, he told some men gathered around a table at the Mocha House. It was unclear who George was, maybe someone at the table, but it was clear that the vice president was talking about himself when he said something about the most Greek Irishman hes ever known. The vice president also got a snack at restaurant, a Greek diner in downtown Warren.

    The Democrats and their mainstream media cheering section can huff and puff at Paul Ryan's convention speech, but they can't blow his house down. It was built on a solid foundation. So powerful was the speech that the liberal establishment is reduced to wailing about alleged lies the speech contained -- dishonest and easily refuted allegations. Ryan delivered a substantive indictment of the Obama administration's failed record and a content-rich, realistic plan for putting this nation back on track to economic growth and fiscal recovery, a plan that includes "protecting and strengthening" Medicare, not "raiding" it. Don't listen to the...
  • Kuhner: Biden dangerously detached from reality

    Vice President Joseph R. Biden is mentally unstable, and its time for Republicans to point it out. For years, Mr. Biden has been making outrageous comments that reveal not only his low intelligence, but also a dangerous detachment from reality. Yet the liberal media refuse to hold him accountable. Instead, their rationalization boils down to one excuse: Joe will be Joe. He may make bizarre, even ludicrous, statements, but the press corps believes Mr. Biden is on the side of the angels. His heart is in the right place. He is a trendy progressive. In their view, this is all...

    Gravitas? Nope. Stability? Nope. Respect? Nope. Judgment? Nope. Policy understanding? (mystery) Someone whose finger we want on the button? Three letters, N.O. When assessing a Republican vice-presidential nominee? Fitness to be president is the first and necessary qualification. If Biden were the Republican vice-presidential nominee? Media outrage and indignation at the poor judgment of the presidential nominee, which would call into question the presidential nominees fitness for office. Since Biden is the Democratic vice-presidential nominee? Why hasnt Romney released more tax returns.

    n 1972 Sen. Joseph Biden, the Democrat nominee for vice President, lost his wife and young daughter in a car accident. Losing your family in an auto accident is a gut wrenching tragedy, to be sure. No one underestimates that and no ever blamed Mrs. Biden for the accident. Right up there with despicable things one human can do to another, is falsely accusing the innocent of a crime. Bearing false witness is even in the 10 commandments, but Mr. Bidens feigned Catholicism doesnt let that stop him. Last night CBS Inside Edition reports, In a striking moment in December...

    Mitt Romney is not known as a gambling man. When choosing a running mate, many observers expected Romney to make the safest, most cautious choice most likely Ohio Sen. Rob Portman.* By instead choosing Rep. Paul Ryan, Romney is sending a clear signal that he intends to run a more daring and more ideologically vigorous campaign than he has run up to this point. And in that sense, Romney has now become a gambling man. Although Romney had embraced the Ryan budget plan, he has now embraced its author, too and in the process moved the issue of...

    For his running mate, presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney wisely selected the distinguished House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan (R., Wis.). In essence, this is the first major decision of a Romney administration. It is a superb one. Ryan refreshingly combines a command of the substance of public policy with the style needed to communicate free-market solutions in an appealing fashion. Unlike the last Republican vice-presidential nominee, Ryan will have no problem speaking persuasively and specifically about the federal Leviathans every activity and expenditure. Agree or disagree with him, no one can accuse Ryan of lobbing platitudes around Washington. Instead,...
