    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush won’t confirm he’s a candidate for the next presidential race, but he sounded like a White House hopeful Monday, declaring his party in need of leadership. “I have a voice, I want to share my beliefs about how the conservative movement and the Republican party can regain its footing, because we’ve lost our way,” he told TODAY’s Matt Lauer. Bush said he wouldn’t rule out a run in 2016, “but I won’t declare today either.”

    Foreign Policy Research Institute ^ | December 2012 | James Kurth
    It has long been understood that there is something peculiar, even paradoxical, about conservatism in America. American conservatism is different from conservatism in other countries, even those countries which were the original source of many other American ideas and ideals, i.e., the countries of Europe. Indeed, the very term “American conservatism” is something of an oxymoron. For most Europeans who came to America, the whole purpose of their difficult and disruptive journey to the New World was not to conserve European institutions but to leave them behind and to create something new, often an entirely new life and even a...

    The Constitution Club ^ | 05-23-11 | Dave
    Conservatism is a thinking mans ideology. It requires understanding and wisdom, research and knowledge, and the ability and willingness to judge right from wrong. It requires a moral compass, a fortitude for righteousness, and above all a love of liberty. To be a true conservative the value of the individual must be nourished and a fierce independence cultivated that can withstand the petty criticisms, persecutions and mockeries of those who have yet to see the light and embrace the truth. The conservative ideology cannot be separated from logic or from common sense. To me being a political blogger and commentator...

    Residents, business owners in state denied financial flooding help; Rell plans to appeal Since last month's floods, residents and business owners in communities across southeastern Connecticut whose properties were damaged have heard repeated assurances that the federal government would cover their noninsured losses. Both the state and New London County easily exceeded the monetary threshold needed to qualify for disaster assistance, and last week President Barack Obama signed a disaster declaration that allowed aid to begin flowing to the state and municipalities to cover their costs. But on Tuesday afternoon, Gov. M. Jodi Rell announced that Obama had denied the...

    FORT HOOD, Texas (Nov. 8) – A key U.S. senator said Sunday he would begin an investigation into whether the Army missed signs that the man accused of opening fire at Fort Hood had embraced an increasingly extremist view of Islamic ideology. Sen. Joe Lieberman's call for the investigation came as word surfaced that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan apparently attended the same Virginia mosque as two Sept. 11 hijackers in 2001, at a time when a radical imam preached there. Whether Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, associated with the hijackers is something the FBI will probably look into, according to a...

    The Dallas Morning News ^ | 02 Mar 2009 | TODD J. GILLMAN
    Add former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk to the list of Obama Cabinet picks with tax problems. The Senate Finance Committee says he underpaid by $9,975 in the last three years. Senate aides uncovered the shortfall during weeks of vetting, and Kirk – the administration’s designated point person on trade -- has promised to pay the Internal Revenue Service in full. The problems: Kirk deducted too much for season tickets to the Dallas Mavericks and too much for tax preparation fees, and failed to report as income speaking fees that he donated to his alma mater, Austin College. The full political...

    Singapore is to cut the salaries of Lee Hsien Loong, prime minister, and senior government officials next year by up to 19 per cent, writes John Burton . The city-state is one of the few countries where the salaries, among the highest in the world, are tied to economic performance. "Public sector salaries follow the market up and down. The mechanism allows salaries to respond more rapidly to market conditions," said Teo Chee Hean, the minister in charge of the civil service. Government salaries are pegged to top earners in six professions and Mr Loong's pay is more than six...

    Report: Palin's Wardrobe Is to Be Audited by GOP Now that the defeated team of Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin have gone their separate ways, the knives are out and Palin is the one who is getting filleted. Revelations from anonymous critics from within the McCain-Palin campaign suggest a number of complaints about the Alaskan governor: Fox News reports that Palin didn't know Africa was a continent and did not know the member nations of the North American Free Trade Agreement -- the United States, Mexico and Canada -- when she was picked for vice president.

    Senate Republicans are unlikely to do major housecleaning after their party suffered at least a five-seat loss in Tuesday's election. Lower-ranking GOP spots are open, but Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.), Minority Whip Jon Kyl (Ariz.) and GOP Conference Chairman Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) are likely to remain in their leadership positions, according to several GOP aides and senators. But three other positions are up for grabs: the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), chairman of the GOP Policy Committee, and vice chairman of the conference. The lower-ranking leadership positions give senators a voice in shaping the party's strategy...

He could have thereby restored his political position, some would have argued, in order to try to influence the King for the good over the long haul. He could have had his substantial properties restored if he had just sworn that oath, others would say, in order to provide material safety for his beloved family.

    Banking on Becoming President After nine months of fundraising, the candidates for president in 2008 have already raised about $420 million. This presidential money chase seems to be on track to collect an unprecedented $1 billion total. By some predictions, the eventual nominees will need to raise $500 million apiece to compete--a record sum. To find out where all this money is coming from, explore the options to the left. Year-end reports are due to the Federal Election Commission by Jan. 31.

    Now the clock has begun to run on Nancy Pelosi's first 100 hours as Speaker. She'll find them very short. Despite the disdain for George W. Bush's political skill, he has remade the political landscape into a rough road for the Dems. They can't openly advocate cutting and running from Iraq: they're taking cover under the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study Group report. Worse still for the liberals, George Bush has made it possible to debate seriously everything from Social Security to private options in education and health. But it's not easy for Republicans either. They have to exorcise the ghosts of...

Since an identical SurveyUSA poll 9/14/06, Kline has lost 8 points and Morrison has gained 8 points. Morrison had trailed by 3, now leads by 13. All the movement is among Republicans: Kline leads 2:1 among Republicans, down from a 4:1 lead last month. Morrison gets 87% of Democrat votes, down from 89%. 62% of Independents vote for the Democrat Morrison, up 1 point....

    Here is a basic question. If we could wave a magic wand and in a short time every illegal worker returned to his native county, would we be richer or poorer? The answer is substantially poorer. In fact it would trigger an economic crisis that could well shatter our economy. Various economic models have tried to answer whether we could get alone without foriegn workers but no model has yet captured the domino effect of a complete elimination of foriegn workers. No employer wants to be quoted on his business or industry's dependancy for obvious reasons. But this is the...

    The Toronto ad firm that created a Liberal television commercial denied yesterday that footage of a gun firing is a subliminal message. A Zapruder-like analysis of the video shows that the menacing gun pointing at the camera actually fires. One frame -- one-30th of a second -- shows a bright muzzle flash before the ad cuts to a shot of factory smokestacks. The image is used to illustrate the Liberal charge that the Tories would go soft on guns by eliminating the federal gun registry. Media reports on the ads last week made no mention of the gun discharging, saying...
