    Everyone misses the central story here and it is not Hillary. It is Obama who approved this. This is the bigger story a scandal beyond belief. Does anyone realize that 7 out of 9 cabinet officers of Obama's cabinet sat in on the committee to approve this? Here is another question. What did the other cabinet officers get for signing off on this deal? Is it at all conceivable that Obama knew nothing of this when 80% of his cabinet was involved? Once again! Are we to believe that Obama was totally clueless that a deal to give away 20%...

    Mitt Romney has taken the gloves off. If only he had done so in 2012, a lot more people in Syria, Libya, and elsewhere would be alive, and the American economy and Supreme Court would be in far better shape.  Speaking to Hugh Hewitt on the latter’s radio show (audio here), he had this to say: HH: Governor Romney, I know you’ve had a chance to read, I assume you’ve had a chance to read the Jo Becker/Mike McIntire New York Times piece today about the cash flowing into the Clinton Foundation from the Russians as they got control...

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has no intention of apologizing to Mitt Romney for his unsubstantiated accusation in 2012 that the former Republican presidential nominee didn't pay taxes for a decade. "Oh, I have no repentance, because it was an issue that was important. The American people deserve to know," Reid told Univision's "Al Punto with Jorge Ramos" in an interview scheduled to air on Sunday. He said Romney could resolve the issue by releasing his tax returns, insisting that "someone who worked at Bain Capital, a couple people, told me he didnt pay taxes." Asked if that meant...

    BOSTON (CBS) It might just be the biggest upset of the NCAA tournament. Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican nominee for president, has never claimed to be an expert on basketball. But his March Madness bracket turned out to be one of the most accurate in the country, finishing in the 99.9th percentile. Romney correctly picked Duke as the national champion, nailed the Final Four and selected six of the Elite Eight teams. His bracket was leaked by a source to the Huffington Post. In 2012, Romney said he decided not to fill out a bracket because...

    Harry Reid, D-Nev. has no regrets about his 2012 claims that then presidential candidate Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years. The outgoing Senate Minority Leader even bragged to CNN that the comments, which had been described as McCarthyism, helped keep Romney from winning the election. "They can call it whatever they want. Romney didn't win did he?" Reid said ... when Reid directly accused Romney of being a tax dodge, he did so from the safety of the Senate floor. Outside the protection of legislative immunity, Romney was only possibly a tax dodge. Not only does Reid not...

    Harry Reid said he has no regrets for polarizing the Senate, attacking the Koch brothers, and falsely accusing Mitt Romney of not paying taxes. Republicans have criticized Reid, who recently announced that he would not seek re-election in 2016, for hostile tactics that soured the environment on Capitol Hill. The Senate minority leader dismissed claims that he is the problem with Washington and said he his proud of taking on the Koch brothers when no one else would. Reid appeared to take some joy of being a part of the Democrat machine that took down Romney in 2012. Let him...

For instance, Holyfield had to defeat some legit heavyweights, not just tomato cans, to earn his title.

In fact, Romney is slated to fight former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield in the marquis event during a several-bout evening at the Rail Event Center near the Union Pacific Depot...

Romney announced on Friday that he would not make a third run for the White House, and NBCs Chuck Todd said Romney was Jeb Bushs preferred candidate in 2007 before Romney flipped on immigration. Todd added that some of the interest in the race was personal Jeb Bush never forgave Romney for using immigration as a wedge issue against McCain.

    Mitt Romney announced Friday he will not run for president in 2016, after briefly flirting with a third White House run -- a decision that only slightly narrows the crowded field of potential Republican candidates. "After putting considerable thought into making another run for president, I've decided it's best to give other leaders in the party the opportunity to become our next nominee," Romney told donors on a conference call Friday morning. The announcement comes after the 2012 GOP nominee, who repeatedly denied interest in another campaign, surprised donors earlier this month by telling them he was considering it. Since...

Jeb Bush ran a big state that looks a lot like the U.S. They are good patriotic men who have thought hard about the issues confronting the country. However, they have problems: 1) Romney lost in 2012. Fair or unfair, many people think that he ran a poor campaign. He seemed poised for victory after the first debate and then fell back.

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney , the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, told a meeting of donors Friday that he is considering another White House bid in 2016, people present said. The possibility of a third Romney bid could upend the emerging GOP field, coming as top Republican donors are starting to rally behind former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Mr. Romney made the remarks during a session Friday afternoon -SNIP-

    From the first day of 2011, Mitt Romney was the favorite to win the 2012 Republican presidential primary campaign. No one else was even close. The 2016 outlook could not be more different. Offered the choice to bet on one single candidate to win the nomination versus the rest of the field, the choice would have to be "the field." For the first time in years, there is no one next in line. And without a former vice president or powerhouse former candidate looking likely to run, Republicans are shaping up to spend the next year and a half fighting...

    A certain Texas Republican still has plenty of fans. Sen. Ted Cruz has won the Federalist Today Presidential Straw Poll with 26 percent of the nearly one thousand votes cast. The field included 16 potential candidates. Placing a respectable second and third, Senator Rand Paul (22 percent) and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (16 percent) showed that they also have considerable support among the lovers of freedom and anxious for the fray Federalist faithful, report David Corbin and Matt Parks, two analysts for The Federalist - a learned and vibrant online journal. The political insider would, undoubtedly, not be impressed. Good...

    Mitt Romney is eyeing a third run for the White House and will get in the race in the coming months if he doesn't like how the GOP field is looking, his longtime friend Kem Gardner said Monday. "I know exactly what Mitt's going to do," Gardner, a real estate developer who helped bring Romney to Utah to lead the 2002 Winter Olympics, told the Deseret News. "I think over the next few months, a lot of things will happen." But Spencer Zwick, who raised $1 billion for Romney's 2012 campaign, said the decision is a personal one for Romney...

    Since forming a presidential exploratory committee earlier this month, Jeb Bush is being considered a serious Republican candidate for president. But as George Will astutely pointed out last week, Bush has two significant hurdles; his support for Common Core and immigration reform. Will correctly points out that his support for the latter is far more nuanced than people understand. Bush does not advocate for more immigration through family reunification, which is the agenda of radical immigration activists, but instead for meeting employment needs, and he supports a path to legal status instead of citizenship. However, his support for Common Core...

    Last week a small and seemingly innocuous piece in The Times caught my eye. The short panel referred to the fact that Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney's right hand man and the Republican Party nominee for Vice President of the United States, had just spent $100 on camouflage hunting clothes for his daughter, Liza, 10, to go with the rifle he bought her last Christmas. Aghast with what I had just read I blogged about it, commenting that buying a 10 year old a rifle for Christmas was insane, and anywhere in the world that it wasn't considered to be must...

    For most of the past year, Mitt Romney supporters have publicly said he should consider running again. And for most of the past year, Romney has seemed uninterested. Until recently. While some people close to Romney insist he hasnt moved from saying he has no plans to run, the 2012 Republican nominee has sounded at least open to the idea in recent conversations, according to more than a dozen people whove spoken with him in the past month. In his private musings, Romney has sounded less than upbeat about most of the potential candidates in the 2016 Republican field, according...

    Potential Democratic presidential candidates and the Hawkish Republican hopeful were fare better among the Jewish electorate in the State of New York, then the sort of moderate Republicans, according to new poll conducted by the Siena Research. While in general, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren on the Democratic side, and Chris Christie, Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush on the Republican side, are seen as the best choices for President, among Jewish voters, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are the most preferred candidates for president. According to the poll, if the elections were to be held today, 51 percent of registered...

Ask viewers for voluntary $5 contribution to fight #Ebola.— Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) December 18, 2014 More than 13,000 retweets as I write this. Clearly there’s a demand for countermeasures among an American public that doesn’t like the idea of foreigners, especially savages like the Kim cabal, holding veto power over their culture. (Too bad China, Kim’s chief patron, already sort of does.) Am I right, though, in thinking that no major Republican pol aside from Romney has said anything...
