    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) faced hecklers angry with his leadership on immigration reform at a Friday Tea Party summit in his home state. According to reports, Rubio was met with cries of "No amnesty!" as he gave an address during the opening session of the Americans for Prosperity's Defending the American Dream Summit in Orlando.
  • It’s "[crap]" (unnamed Conrgressman: Boehner is getting nervous)

    07/24/2011 4:37:06 AM PDT · by RummyChick · 76 replies ^ | Saturday, July 23rd at 11:05PM EDT | Posted by Erick Erickson
    A House Republican who is in leadership called me tonight. He said what we are hearing about — the two tier plan — is “sh*t” and he’s blaming Boehner. He agrees that Boehner is getting nervous and wants a deal. But this two tier plan seems to be the Republicans’ initial offer. Harry Reid is headed that way. Many Democrats want more. So keep in mind for purposes of negotiations, House Republican leadership members are already referring to the starting point as “sh*t” and it will only get worse from here. One of the ways they’ll claim they are cutting...
  • Harry Reid commends Mitch McConnell’s debt plan

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Wednesday praised Republican Leader Mitch McConnell for putting forth a plan to raise the debt ceiling, calling it a “serious proposal” that he’s continuing to study. “He spent a great deal of time working on this. I commend him for his thoughtful and unique proposal, something that we have to look at very closely,” Reid, a Nevada Democrat, said on the Senate floor. “I’m heartened by what I read. This is a serious proposal, and I commend the Republican leader for coming forward with it.” McConnell laid out his plan on Tuesday as he...

    Washington (CNN) - In an interview after his presidential announcement Tuesday, former Utah governor and ambassador to China Jon Huntsman tried to downplay a letter he wrote to President Barack Obama in August 2009 calling him a "remarkable leader." Huntsman told Fox News that he was only alluding to the fact that the president would appoint a Republican to "a position as important and sensitive as the U.S. ambassadorship to China."

    Every detail of Jon Huntsman’s long-awaited campaign launch was meticulously planned, except of course for one minor detail: the misspelling of the candidate’s name. Members of the media were handed a press pass that read “John Huntsman for President"  -- adding an unnecessary H in the candidate's first name.

    "I'm really tired of hearing people talking about 'it costs too much'" GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" and gave his reaction to Pres. Barack Obama's Libya speech tonight. While some Republicans have criticized Pres. Obama's Libya response, including Graham earlier in the conflict, he instead turned the tables and criticized those in his own party tonight. "We made mistakes in Iraq, and to my fellow Republican friends, nobody complained about the cost of Iraq or Afghanistan on our watch," he told Piers Morgan. "I'm really tired of hearing people talking about 'it costs too...

    St. Petersburg Times ^ | February 28, 2010 | Adam Smith
    Amid revelations about how Republican U.S. Senate front-runner Marco Rubio wielded his Florida GOP credit card as state House speaker (not exactly conservatively), it seems some of his most vocal conservative supporters are plenty forgiving. Rubio agreed to reimburse the state party about $3,000 after the St. Petersburg Times/Miami Herald bureau revealed that while House speaker he double-billed the state party and Florida taxpayers for eight flights between Miami and Tallahassee. Club for Growth spokesman Michael Connolly: "Sounds like Marco is doing the right thing reimbursing taxpayers for the $3,000. Hopefully Gov. Crist can do the same thing about that...
