    Fox News ^ | August 13 2012 | By K.T. McFarland
    No doubt the Obama administration is fast at work sharpening their knives to slice and dice Paul Ryan as lacking the foreign policy chops to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. By choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate, Romney has made an inspired choice – on foreign policy grounds! First, the greatest long-term national security threat the United States faces isn’t China, or Russia, or Al Qaeda. It’s our dwindling economic power. As former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Mullin has said many times, “the single, biggest threat to our national security is our debt.”...
  • Mormon-Catholic pairing makes for historically unique GOP ticket

    With the choice of devout Catholic Paul Ryan as his running mate, Mitt Romney, a Mormon, has arguably crafted the most religiously unique ticket in presidential history. Both religions have interesting precedent in presidential politics, however, with varying degrees of success. John F. Kennedy was famously the first and only Catholic to be elected president. Less than two months before the 1960 election, JFK addressed the Greater Houston Ministerial Association in a hope to allay fears that the pope would use him as a conduit into American politics. Mitt Romney's father, George, also a Mormon, was a serious Republican candidate...

    Not all celebrities are Democrats. It may seem that way sometimes, but there actually are a few Republicans in the entertainment industry. And Mitt Romney scored endorsements from two big-name stars earlier this week.
  • A Mitt Romney loss wouldn’t necessarily be a disaster

    Don’t buy the doom and gloom pronouncements from conservatives telling you, “this is the most important election in history.” A loss for Mitt Romney would not necessarily spell long lasting disaster for Republicans, nor would it be the death-knell to conservatism. In fact, it’s possible a 2012 loss could lay the groundwork for a stronger Republican party and conservative movement. Elections are almost always seen as urgent and morally imperative. But sometimes major victories can only come in the aftermath of what appear to be devastating defeats. John Kerry‘s loss in 2004 laid the groundwork for a Democratic takeover in...
  • The rhyme and reason of Sarah Palin's endorsements

    After a stretch in which an endorsement from Sarah Palin was considered a rarity, the former Alaska governor has become something of an endorsement machine as of late. In the past week alone, she has endorsed four candidates, ranging from a tea party contender for Senate in her home state of Alaska to the GOP establishment favorite for Iowa governor. Palin has backed both clear winners and decided long-shots; she's weighed in on behalf of "mama grizzlies," but an extra X chromosome doesn't necessarily mean an automatic endorsement (see Hutchison, Kay Bailey). Some candidates (such as former Redskins tight end...
  • AZ-Sen. 2010: Minutemen: John McCain switch 'shameful' (Simcox attacks McCain)

    A co-founder of the anti-immigration Minutemen on Monday dismissed Sen. John McCain’s new, tougher immigration stance as “shameful election-year politics.” The Arizona Republican, who’s seeking a fifth term this fall, is now supporting an Arizona bill that allows law enforcement officers to demand proof of citizenship – even if they just suspect illegal status – and detain suspects until the federal authorities can determine their citizenship. McCain’s move, announced Monday, is a dramatic shift right from his more moderate, comprehensive approach to most immigration issues. Chris Simcox – co-founder of the Minutemen and a supporter of McCain’s Republican challenger, J.D....
