    Fox News released a brutal statement Tuesday reacting to the announcement from the Donald Trump campaign that he would be bowing out of the next Republican presidential debate. "As many of our viewers know, FOX News is hosting a sanctioned debate in Des Moines, Iowa, on Thursday night, three days before the first votes of the 2016 election are cast in the Iowa Caucus. Donald Trump is refusing to debate seven of his fellow presidential candidates on stage that night, which is near unprecedented," the statement read. The network accused the campaign of leveling terroristic threats against debate moderator and...

    2016 GOP POWER INDEX: JEB BREAKS DOWN, RUBIO RACES AHEAD In what could end up being the final pairing of the Republican nominating contest two 44-year-old Cuban American senators hold the top two spots in this week’s 2016 GOP Power Index. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, remains the FNF favorite to win the votes of Republican insurgents. Cruz is running a disciplined campaign and mostly avoiding the candidate-on-candidate violence of the cycle. And he is raising enough money to burn a wet elephant. But on the other side of the map, the terrain is shifting. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., is consolidating...

    What I saw on TV today was an Outstanding Exit Speech from Newt Gingrich. He itemized his past successes, goals and big ideas that he will continue to push. Ideas such as US Energy Independence, Personal Social Security Accounts, Brain Science Research, Debt Reduction, Conservative Judges, etc. So what do Shepherd Smith and Ed Rollins talk about after the speech. Shep said Newt was delusional. Rollins said Newt gave one of the worst exit speeches ever. They did not comment on the specifics of any of the exciting ideas that Newt wants to continue to push. I am convinced the...

    Washington D.C. – Marco Rubio says he wants his version of the DREAM Act in effect by fall, just in time for undocumented students to be able to attend college fall semester. Rubio, in two separate events in Washington D.C., said his plan is still being hammered out, and important details – such as the minimum and maximum age of those who would qualify – were yet to be determined. “We’re involving the DREAMers” in the drafting of the measure, he said, using the term that refers to undocumented youth brought to the country by their parents. “We’re involving the...

    As former Speaker Newt Gingrich continues his increasingly long-shot presidential campaign, focusing heavily on the state of Delaware, he’s begun opening up and speaking more candidly about the state of the Republican Party and other topics. At a private meeting with more than a dozen Tea Party group leaders in Delaware, Gingrich griped about Fox News Channel’s coverage of the Republican race, complaining that the network was in the bag for Mitt Romney from the very start. “I think FOX has been for Romney all the way through,” Gingrich is quoted by RealClearPolitics as saying. “In our experience, Callista and...

    DOVER, Del. -- During a meeting with 18 Delaware Tea Party leaders here on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich lambasted The Fox News Channel, accusing the cable news network that employed him as recently as last year of having been in the tank for Mitt Romney from the beginning of the Republican presidential fight and singling out former colleagues for attacking him out of what he characterized as personal jealousy.

    Unbelievably, Shep Smith just felt it necessary to push out some exit poll data that he says indicates that among those who only recently made their decision, those voters are going for Romney or Santorum. And this is with the polls still open. I have to ask, why is he pushing out exit polling data that clearly could have a negative effect on one candidate's turnout? This is even worse than CNN's coverage of exit poll data. CNN has only been breaking it down by Conservative/Evangelical/income levels, etc.

    As a white, male, middle-aged conservative talk radio host from Virginia, John Fredericks is something close to the Platonic ideal of a Fox News fan. And until last year, he was one. But then Fox’s treatment of the Republican primary race — the presentation of Karl Rove as a political analyst despite his having “thrown in for Romney” and Sean Hannity’s clear ties to the Republican establishment — began to grate on him. So he changed the channel.

    Because Fox has put off the best Republican candidates, Barack Obama will be much less vulnerable at the election. Whoever wrote the political rulebook needs to start rewriting it. It used to be an iron maxim that voters' most vital organ was neither their head nor their heart, but their wallet. If they were suffering economically, they'd throw the incumbents out. Yet in Britain a coalition presiding over barely-there growth, rising unemployment and forecasts of gloom stretching to the horizon is holding steady in the opinion polls, while in the US Barack Obama is mired in horrible numbers – except...

What I found interesting was how matter-of-fact he said it, as if he knows, and has been told that Romney is already chosen and it will be so. I found it very disturbing honestly because I don't think it was a mistake, it was a slip of the...

Both Palin and Giuliani have left the door open to running for the Republican presidential nomination. Perry led that scenario with 26 percent followed by Romney with 18 percent.

    Despite an instant, commanding lead in the polls, newly-minted GOP presidential candidate Gov. Rick Perry is already being viewed as “unelectable.” The panel of reporters on Sunday’s The Chris Matthews Show reached a general consensus that Perry’s loose talk and extreme views will eventually lead the Republican establishment to choose the more moderate, more electable Mitt Romney to challenge President Obama in the general election. Barely a week into his campaign, the Texas Governor has talked himself into trouble, and not just with liberals and Democrats. While John Heilemann sees Perry’s smashmouth certitude as an advantage over Mitt Romney, The...

Since Romney has 27% and Palin (who is not even running yet) has 17% and Bachman and all others get 10% or less, they report this as somehow showing Romney being in the lead, and a repudiation of the TEA party in the GOP. This is totally ass-backwards. Romney is LOSING by...

The topics ranged far and wide from Afghanistan and Libya to energy, the economy, taxes, the debt ceiling, the 2012 election, and Obama’s miserable presidency. Wallace, by no means a conservative, said after the interview that Governor Palin was “a serious candidate for president” and had given a “boffo performance” in the interview. However, after Governor Palin’s interview had concluded, the show quickly went off the tracks when the...

On the day after Sean Hannity’s first TV interview with Sarah Palin in the wake of the Arizona shooting, her critics (who won’t be swayed no matter what) are turning out in droves to discredit her simply out of spite and ideology. On Fox News, perhaps none may be more so inclined at the moment than one Juan Williams, who appeared on the same program to “analyze” what he thought of Palin’s sympathetic reasoning. In his mind, her Hannity interview showed her as being overly defensive and obsessed...

Before Hume summed Palin up, Fox commentator Juan Williams shared his bewilderment over Palin’s tone and word choice in the video, and thought the whole thing was “unnecessary.” This “just gave her opponents such an opportunity then to excoriate her . . . and did not raise her stature,” Williams concluded. Brit Hume offered up his...

    The Republican nominating process of 2012 will be totally different from that of other years. In fact, it will be the opposite of what we are used to. Since the procedural reforms initiated by Democrat George McGovern - that carried over into the Republican Party as well - primaries have determined the winner of the nominations in each party. Iowa and New Hampshire - the first caucus and the first primary in the nation - have tended to sort out the candidates for us. They narrowed down the field and left the rest of the nation with two or three...

  • Campaign: No Magical Explanation for O'Donnell's 'Witchcraft' Confession

    Sorcery did not force Christine O'Donnell to cancel her Sunday show appearances nor does the Delaware Senate Republican nominee's campaign offer any magical explanation for her 1999 confession that she "dabbled into witchcraft." O'Donnell's campaign insists the Tea Party-backed nominee decided to attend church and a Republican Party picnic in Sussex County, Del., rather than appear on national news shows Sunday, even as it was forced to respond to a newly released video of O'Donnell on a talk show talking about her dalliances with the dark arts. O'Donnell had been scheduled to appear on "Fox News Sunday" but canceled late...

    Here is video of Gov. Mike Huckabee doing a “lightning round” with Chris Wallace on his opinion about other possible 2012 GOP Candidates: Mitt Romney – Huckabee said, “No doubt in my mind that he’s running.” He hit Romney on the “RomneyCare” Health Care Law being the “blueprint” for ObamaCare. Huckabee said Romney has the GOP establishment behind him. Sarah Palin – Listen carefully. Wallace asked Huckabee if Palin “has the experience,” “the knowledge” to be President. Huckabee carefully said: “She’s got the fire, the energy, and I think there are a lot of Republicans who love her, would support...
