  • Laura Ingraham: "Tell Me Again How Marco Rubio Is Different From Lindsey Graham On Any Issue?"

    RCP ^ | 04/21/2015
    On Monday's edition of The Laura Ingraham Show, the nationally-syndicated host talked about an e-mail she received from a friend that got her thinking: what's the difference between declared Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is considering a run. LAURA INGRAHAM: We seem to have a topsy-turvy thing going on in the Republican field, okay? Rubio Is now the darling of the Republican Party. And, look, I’m just going to tell you where I see things. And, I like all these people personally a lot... I like Marco.

    Painful as it is to realize that both the Democrats and the Republicans will still be holding their primaries a year from now, that is one of the high prices we pay for democracy. Seldom does the initial “front-runner” in either party’s primaries end up being the actual candidate when Election Day rolls around. However, even if we cannot predict the outcomes of the primaries this far in advance, we can at least start trying to understand the candidates, the almost candidates, and the people who are running just for the publicity. One of the curious things this early in...

    The road to the White House... which began 160 years ago in Ystradyfodwg: Ancestry expert traces Hillary's roots to impoverished mining family from tiny parish in the Welsh Valleys As she kicks off her bid to enter the White House, Hillary Clinton could claim that her path to the presidency began some 160 years ago in the little-known Welsh parish of Ystradyfodwg – if she can pronounce it, that is. For while the US Democrat has long spoken of her British ancestry, it appears most versions of the Rodham family tree have been drawn incorrectly due to a mix-up over...

    Sen. Ted Cruz speaks at a gathering of Republicans in New Hampshire and sets forth a pathway to take America back through the power of the "Grassroots." Cruz talks about the grassroots "Past, Present, and Future." He demonstrates his ability to capture the imagination of an audience, was clearly a big hit in the "First-in-the-Nation" Primary State. As you listen to Cruz, you can hear the outline of a 2016 Presidential run that calls for standing firm on Conservative principles. Cruz calls for abolishing the IRS, cutting taxes, defunding and repealing ObamaCare, reducing regulations and unleashing the power of the...

    UK Daily Mail ^ | April 21, 2015 | David Martosko
    Democratic Presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton's security detail led a handful of journalists on two lengthy high-speed chases to homes of influential Democrats on Monday. Her lone official appearance on her first day in New Hampshire was a carefully stage-managed small-business roundtable in Keene. But a lunchtime visit to a main-street bakery and two more appointments later in the day were off-the-books and under the public's radar. If police radar had been engaged, however, it would have clocked Hillary's signature black conversion van - 'Scooby', for the uninitiated – hitting 92 mph in a driving rainstorm on Interstate 89, where the...

    I don't get depressed too often, but I feel the blues coming on. Many moons ago, if memory serves, I tweeted my skepticism that Hillary Clinton would even get the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, much less win the general election. I'm afraid I probably was right about her not getting the nomination, but I'm concerned that her implosion appears to be happening too soon -- with way too much time for Democrats to regroup. I realize that all of this is speculative and I could have egg all over my face if Hillary were to smoothly sail to the nomination...

    The financial portfolio of Hillary Clinton, her family and the Clinton Foundation is under new scrutiny, worrying some Democrats, as the former secretary of State begins her 2016 campaign. The New York Times fired the starting pistol on another round of stories about the Clinton finances with a story on Monday morning describing a forthcoming book, Clinton Cash, by Peter Schweizer, a fellow at Stanford University’s conservative Hoover Institution. The Times called the tome “the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.” The book’s allegations were summed up in the author’s own words: “We...

    Rand Paul has cast himself as a Diogenes for the modern era, a truth-seeker who can't seem to find an honest man — or woman — no matter where he shines his lamp in Washington. That's why his willingness to say almost anything about himself and other Republicans, regardless of whether it's true, poses an existential threat to his brand. It's only a matter of time before the offended start punching back publicly, and that will surely start with fellow Republicans. Many of them had a right to be aggrieved after Paul's speech this weekend at the First in the...

    Ted Cruz is running for president as an outsider, and his relatively lean campaign staff reflects that approach. The Texas senator, who once played a pivotal role in shutting down the federal government, loves to rail against Washington, and his supporters have embraced the tagline “make D.C. listen.” Cruz was the first presidential contender out of the gates with an official announcement and did so with a core group of staffers that lacks bold-faced Beltway names. It’s largely a Texas-heavy group of strategists plus a handful of operatives with experience doing conservative combat. The Lone Star State Republican’s base begins...

    When New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio failed to endorse Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and appeared to call into question her progressive bona fides, it shouldn’t have surprised anyone. Though he served as Clinton’s U.S. Senate campaign manager in 2000, de Blasio has been clear that he does not believe that the former secretary of state was pulled sufficiently to the left over the course of the Obama presidency. “The Democrat should be willing to challenge the status quo,” de Blasio in November of last year in the context of Clinton’s efforts to recast herself a progressive populist...

Marco Rubio and power broker Grover Norquist are backing an effort to inform conservatives about the history of groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), NumbersUSA and the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

It is a constitutional right to protect your children, your family, your home, our lives, and to serve as the ultimate check against governmental tyranny — for the protection of liberty.” In addition to “strange,” the NYT described this view as “ridiculous,” “silly,” and “absurd” (methinks the...

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whose populist crusade on income equality, health care and...

"I have to tell you," he said, "eight years of one demographically-symbolic president is enough."Subtle, it was not.Still, as insults go, it was a rather neatly-crafted twofer.

    Presidential politics first captured Heidi Nelson Cruz’s attention in the 1980s, when the 12-year-old read a Time magazine piece about the Ronald Reagan-Walter Mondale race while working at her San Luis Obispo bread stand. She would later become a Capitol Hill intern, a policy aide on the George W. Bush campaign and economic director for the Western Hemisphere with the National Security Council. But while government and politics might have been her calling at one time, nothing in her background could have prepared her for the summer of 2013, when her husband, Sen.

He called the war on radical Islam and “generational” war and scorched Barack Obama for his ambivalence on the threat. “We’re going to bring the fight to them and fight on their soil and not ours."

We'll find out over the next year and a half whether it will work. Many in the press and on late-night television scratched their heads this week; others were scathing. Ruth Marcus --...

Jeb Bush.Members of the party are generally optimistic that whoever emerges from the crowded field of prospects will succeed. Three-quarters of Republicans predict their party will win back the presidency next year, and most look favorably on several of the politicians fighting for the nomination.Walker generated the most excitement of the six candidates tested, with 45 percent saying they'd be enthusiastic to...

    Hillary's all in for 2016. Whoopee. She officially arrived Sunday - but not in the flesh. She announced her decision with a low-key tweet and a two-minute video featuring a diverse lineup of adorable Democrat voters, a sappy message about being "a champion of everyday Americans" and very little face-time for herself. Then, to prove she's still a grassroots Chicago girl at heart, the multimillionaire from Chappaqua sneaked out of New York at 70 mph on one of the phoniest "road trips" of all time. Chauffeured by Secret Service men in a three-van convoy bound for Iowa, she actually met...

    Nevada sex workers at Dennis Hof’s famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch have launched a “Hookers for Hillary” Clinton website that endorses the former secretary of state’s campaign for president. The legal brothel in Carson City, which was the subject of HBO’s “Cathouse” series, has drafted a four-point platform explaining their endorsement. “Hillary Clinton, as part of her husband’s administration, envisioned health care reform in the 1990’s, long before President Obama was able to sign it into law,” they write. “The Affordable Health Care Act made health insurance available for the first time ever to the 500 independent contractors employed by Dennis...

    Hillary Clinton wants to meet “everyday Americans” so badly, she drove right past many waiting in front of her event in Iowa. In the now-viral clip of reporters chasing after Clinton’s “Scooby” van, the Clinton camp drove to the back entrance, surprising both reporters and many of her supporters waiting to get a glimpse of the candidate. “I think what you don’t see in that clip, which is one of the most surprising things is there were actually a ton of people waiting for her at the front of that college,” said Financial Times reporter Megan Murphy. “There were elderly...
  • Vote For Iraq War Underscores Hillary's Greatest Weakness

    So far, of the declared candidates for president, the only one who voted for the Iraq War is the Democrat. I recently made that observation on Twitter and the response was instructive. I will refrain from reprinting the more piquant language from Hillary Clinton's supporters, but one common theme was that I am a fool. Sens. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio weren't in the Senate for the Iraq war vote, many shrieked. Well, exactly. In case you haven't been paying attention, you might be interested to know that the Iraq War was not popular, especially among Democrats. If...

    It's early days, and a few people who will likely be running haven't formally announced yet. But I think it's worth looking at Republican contenders for the White House and giving you my initial impressions. I'll be looking at Democrats in a subsequent article. Senator Ted Cruz was the first to announce, and of course caught an initial blast from the Left's media hacks. We certainly can't dignify them with the term 'journalist since so many of them are simply Leftist activists with access to a microphone or a byline. Expect them to ignore blatant violations of law by the...

    At only 43, Marco Rubio is pretty young to be running for president, but an ESPN commentator is claiming he proved he wasn’t qualified to be president when he was even younger: Like when he was 8 years old. On his radio show Tuesday on ESPN, former Washington Post sports columnist and occasional political pundit Tony Kornheiser used a Father’s Day tribute Rubio wrote for The Daily Caller in 2014 to attack the Florida Republican’s fitness for the Oval Office.

    Back in 1979, Ronald Reagan first announced his intentions to run for office by releasing a video. That is how it was done back then. It was not really that much of a surprise that you would use yesterday's campaign tactic to declare your intentions last week. Then you got in a van for a road trip. The press called it "spontaneous." Some members of the press reported your travel as you personally driving to Iowa from New York. Except, Madam Yesterday, you admitted you had not driven yourself anywhere since 1996. Your cars are sedans and chauffeured; your planes...

    Illustration by Sarah Rodgers/ The Daily BeastWhile the rest of the GOP field plays nice, Scott Walker is very much on the attack—and he’s not making many friends in the process. In the waning days of the 2014 elections, Chris Christie arrived in Ohio to campaign for his fellow Republican John Kasich. At a rally for over 700 people in the town of Independence, the Ohio governor said of his New Jersey counterpart that, “among all the governors, he’s my best friend.” The audience let out a collective “awww.” The two were shown the next day on the front of...

    Why A Convention Of States Is Safe: Debunking The Myth Of A Runaway Convention Our Founders wisely created the option of the Convention of States in the Constitution as a tool in case the federal government came to disregard the will of the people. Now some pundits are using scare tactics to misrepresent the Convention and what it could do to the U.S. Constitution.(Sarah Palin Channel) "I’ve happily been advocating that America call a Convention Of States to propose amendments to rein in the Federal government.""This is an option that our founders gave us in Article V of our constitution.""They...

    MILWAUKEE —A new Marquette University Law School poll finds Hillary Clinton leading a possible presidential matchup against Gov. Scott Walker.

The poll finds that among Wisconsin voters, Clinton leads Walker 52 percent to 40 percent. The poll also showed that Walker's approval rating in the state has slipped. The most recent poll showed a 41 percent approval rating, compared to 49 percent in October. Looking...
