    Mass Resistance ^ | Oct. 15, 2012
    The Republican establishment in Washington is pouring enormous amounts of money -- over a million dollars -- into Massachusetts to elect an aggressive, anti-family homosexual activist to Congress. In Massachusetts, Richard Tisei is known as an openly "gay" liberal Republican politician who ran for Lt. Governor in 2010. Prior to that as a State Senator, among other things he worked to successfully block the people's right to vote on the Marriage Amendment. Tisei is the only Republican Congressional candidate in Massachusetts to receive such support from the national Republican Congressional campaign! Flood of expensive TV ads Anyone watching TV in...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — For establishment Republicans, it is decision time in the Missouri Senate race. Should they return to Representative Todd Akin’s corner? Many quickly withdrew their support for Mr. Akin weeks ago after his controversial comments about abortion and belief that victims of “legitimate rape” have a biological mechanism to fight off pregnancy, hoping to force him aside so another Republican candidate could battle the Democratic incumbent, Senator Claire McCaskill. But Mr. Akin called their bluff. He stayed in the race, reckoning that election math would oblige them to stick with him. Now, with Mr. Akin’s name legally...

    The National Republican Senatorial Committee issued a statement Wednesday clarifying its support for Rep. Todd Akin in the Missouri Senate race and suggesting it might spend money to help elect him, after saying a month ago that it would not do so. “There is no question that for Missourians who believe we need to stop the reckless Washington spending, rein-in the role of government in people’s lives, and finally focus on growing jobs in this country, that Todd Akin is a far more preferable candidate than liberal Sen. Claire McCaskill,” NRSC executive director Rob Jesmer said. “As with every Republican...

    As a Republican, I truly wonder if Romney's heart is in this. He's running a campaign that mirrors that of someone running for high school class president. Worse yet, he's trying to play nice with a fire-breathing dragon! Who is Romney kidding? Not me! I see no fight, and where there is no fight, there is no heart! I do see a nice guy. Is that what you want to say at the end of a losing campaign, which is supposedly the last opportunity to save our republic? That he was nice? That we were nice? Sorry, but my family...

    Republican National Committee Political Director Rick Wiley sent out a “Ground Game Update” memo to “Interested Parties” today, claiming the RNC’s 2012 voter contact efforts have already surpassed 2008 totals. “Overall, we have made more than 26 million voter contacts, thanks to the efforts of our 73,000 volunteers. This week, we expect to make our 30 millionth voter contact. By mid-September, we had already surpassed the 2008 operation in total volunteer voter contacts,” Wiley writes.

    Paint Your Wagon! Clint Eastwood just dropped another nuke on Obama. In the latest issue of The Carmel Pine Cone (Sept 7-13, 2012) American's favorite actor said, "President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," The Pine Cone is the weekly newspaper for Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula. Clint Eastwood was the Mayor of Carmel, California from 1986 to 1988 and didn't run for a second term. Clint was elected in a landslide with 72% of the vote. President Ronald Reagan called Clint to congratulate him on his victory. Mayor Eastwood accomplished all of his campaign...

    Joe Scarborough has suggested that Clint Eastwood was drunk when he gave his RNC speech. Today's Morning Joe opened with a clip of Mitt Romney telling David Gregory that it was a thrill to have Eastwood speak on his behalf at the RNC, and that he felt Eastwood spoke "from the heart." Scarborough came on and said that rather than speaking from the heart, Eastwood spoke more "from the bottom of a bottle." View the video here.

    Tampa, Fla., was like the Republican National Convention delegation -- older, more experienced, less excitable. Tampa has hosted the Super Bowl; the city had lots of space and nothing to prove. There was a been there/done that feel to the entire affair. Tampa Bay is used to welcoming visitors and has plenty of nice hotels to host them. You say a hurricane is coming? No worries. They laid out some sandbags, closed up for a night and started up a day later. No need to rush a convention. People don't come to Florida to be in a hurry. Charlotte, N.C.,...

    While the Republicans stand strong on the Christian deity, they also allegedly adopted an anti-Sharia platform targeting the religious practices of Muslims this year. The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) asked them to remove it, but the Republicans refused. Thus, the increase in Muslim and Arab-American delegates at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) this year is attributed to the Republicans anti-Muslim platform and according to the CAIR website and the Rightwing Watch site, the GOP said they will inspire laws targeting Islam.Eight years ago, an estimated 25 Muslim and Arab-Americans attended the DNC and in 2008, 43 attended....

    Guess John Harwood was feeling lucky today. CNBC's chief Washington correspondent went on the Today show and boldly proclaimed that not only did Clint Eastwood not accomplish his mission with his RNC speech, but that the speech is almost universally viewed by political professionals as "a big blunder, a big set-back for Mitt Romney." Harwood did not adduce a scintilla of evidence in support of his contention that the speech hurt Romney. And his universe of pundits apparently does not include people like Jonah Goldberg or Mark Steyn. View the video after the jump.

    Indeed he is. After a week as topic No. 1 in American politics, former Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood said the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention last Thursday night, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to.“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week. “Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s...

    Romney/Ryan supporters in Johnson County got a rally-cry from Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus Thursday night. Priebus visited the republican campaign office in Coralville as the group prepared for the Presidents stop in Iowa City Friday. Republican leaders say they refuse to let President Obama snag the spotlight in Iowa City. "He gives great speeches that's what he does," said Priebus. "Unfortunately for the president and our country, he's not good at following through and that's a bad thing." This week, the UI College Republicans said they were on campus tabling, registering students to vote and gathering support for...

    Kansas City Star ^ | September 5, 2012 | DAVID LIGHTMAN AND WILLIAM DOUGLAS
    Democrats staked out unmistakably liberal positions on some of the nation's most volatile social issues Tuesday, notably abortion and gay marriage, planting the party as firmly on the political left as Republicans are on the political right. The differences are vividly reflected in the two parties' platforms. For years, platforms strived to be lofty and gentle, brushing aside any hint of extremes while couching controversial positions in language carefully crafted not to offend swing voters. Not anymore. The Democratic platform lights a fire from the start, fans the flames and urges votes to pick sides. "This election is not simply...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: The Clint Eastwood bit at the Republican National Convention is still being talked about, which is testimony alone to its effectiveness. You know what everybody who is analyzing this -- and I must include myself in the first ten minutes of his routine -- forgot? He's an actor. He's an actor. Everything that happened in Eastwood's gig was intended to happen. He wasn't nervous. He wasn't bumbling. It didn't take him a while to get going. It was exactly what it was intended to be. And you know what it really was? Among many other things, he...

    And what about those naked pics... You've got to give the benefit-of-the-doubt to an 82-year old American icon, entrepreneur, and patriot who's fighting to save what he knows made this country great- more than you can say for most of the other spoiled Hollywood ingrates still licking Obama's scrawny rear-end. But of course wretched opportunists of the American left -watching hopenchange turn to dust in their hands- absolutely couldn't resist going-after Clint Eastwood as 'senile', completely out-of-it, and worse for having the audacity to mock Dear Leader as the empty suit/chair he is at the RNC in Tampa... so could somebody please tell...
