  • Romney Claims Tough Times In France

    In light of his cavalier attempt to wager $10,000 during the most recent GOP presidential debate, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is trying to counter the claim that he is out of touch with most Americans by relating stories of traveling in Europe as a young man. In New Hampshire on Sunday, Mr. Romney spoke of his experience as a 19 year old Mormon missionary in France; living on $110 a month which he said was the equivalent of $500 or $600 in today's dollars. "You're not living high on the hog at that level," he said.

  • Sarah Palin: her actual abortion record and rhetoric is shocking to the conscience.

    06/05/2011 10:07:28 AM PDT · by jobim · 206 replies
    As a Candidate whom Many Pro-lifers Would Like to Support: her actual abortion record and rhetoric is shocking to the conscience in that Sarah Palin: - happily appointed in 2009 a Planned Parenthood board member to the Alaska Supreme Court - indicates that chemical abortifacients that kill the youngest children should be legal - distinguishes between her "personal" and public pro-life views (personally pro-life means officially pro-choice) - rather than fighting for protection, Sarah indicates support even for public funding to kill some unborn children - whitewashes other candidates misleading millions to believe that pro-choice politicians are pro-life - allows...

    It has come to my attention that there are still a few people in the world that I have not offended. I'd like to fix that by endorsing Donald Trump for president. But not for the reasons you might think. This morning I read a news item saying that some folks at NBC think Trump might be pretending to run for president to boost ratings. The story noted that ratings for his TV show are up 20% lately. I laughed out loud because sometimes I forget that at least half the country doesn't realize he's just screwing with the media....
  • 14th Amendment Birthright Citizenship & The Law of Statelessness

    ConstitutionallySpeaking ^ | April 10, 2011 | Linda Melin
    The definition of “natural born” comes from the common law of nations. Under the law of nations, all treaties and the laws of the foreign nations must be considered if a child is born on foreign soil. Therefore the fundamental rule for NBC is “exclusive allegiance to the United States” at birth. According the US Government, to answer the question, is one born without the soil (jus soli) a natural born citizen, we must ask ourselves this question…If the US denied citizenship to a child born abroad, would that act of the US government leave the child stateless? Take for...
  • David Frum: Can Mitt Romney be president? The outlook is sunny. But he faces rough seas ahead

    The Week ^ | November 10, 2010 | David Frum
    Tea Party, Shmea Party. Post-election surveys suggest that Mitt Romney still leads as the favored Republican presidential candidate for 2012. His lead looks especially big in New Hampshire: Almost 30 points. Does this big lead translate into a smooth ride to the nomination? That depends on whether Romney's campaign follows the path of George W. Bush's in 2000 — or Hillary Clinton's in 2008. Here's the happy scenario for Romney: Like Bush in 2000, Romney is the Republican heir apparent in 2012. Like Bush, Romney has the backing of the party's biggest donors. Like Bush, Romney has national campaign experience....

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 10-25-10 | PETER WALLSTEN
    The tea-party phenomenon is forcing possible Republican presidential candidates in 2012 to make early and potentially high-risk strategic gambles over how to harness the movement. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is traveling the country to build alliances with local tea-party activists in key presidential primary and caucus states. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is solidifying ties with traditional party leaders and organizations by helping them with fund raising and candidate endorsements. The two potential rivals are acting on opposing assumptions about the newly energized but volatile tea party-infused Republican base. The results of their decisions will show the impact that...

    ABC news ^ | September 18 2010 | RYAN CREED
    Fresh off her victory in Delaware, GOP U.S. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell is riding a wave of campaign cash but also internet infamy, thanks in part to her controversial statements -- most notably on masturbation -- in the late 1990s on Bill Maher's "Politically Incorrect." Christine O'Donnell says one of her first dates occurred on a satanic altar. On Friday, Maher released on his new HBO show, "Real Time," an unaired clip of O'Donnell admitting to a brief dalliance with witchcraft.

    Weekly Standard ^ | 9/12/10 | John McCormack
    Court documents obtained Saturday by THE WEEKLY STANDARD reveal surprising new details about the gender discrimination and wrongful termination lawsuit filed by Christine O'Donnell in 2005 against her former employer, the Intercollegiate Studies Institute, a conservative non-profit based in Delaware.* O'Donnell, who is now challenging moderate congressman Mike Castle in the September 14 Delaware GOP Senate primary, sought $6.95 million in damages. In a court complaint, she extensively detailed the "mental anguish" she suffered after allegedly being demoted and fired because of her gender. And, although she didn't have a bachelor's degree until this year, O'Donnell implied she was taking...

    Presumed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney came out Wednesday against the planned burning of the Quran by a Florida pastor, saying that doing so would endanger American troops. “Burning the Quran is wrong on every level,” the former Massachusetts governor said in a statement to POLITICO. “It puts troops in danger, and it violates a founding principle of our republic.” Read more:
  • Megyn Kelly Asks Guests: Should Sarah Palin Actually ‘Butt Out’ Of Primaries?

    Mediaite ^ | 8/12/10 | staff
    Is the Sarah Palin backlash beginning? Unlikely, but this remark from Rep. Jack Kingston on “America’s Morning News” radio show this morning is further evidence that the GOP is far from united behind the former Gov. of Alaska. Kingston told the hosts that he wished Palin would “butt out of primary races” because “what she is doing is dividing the Republican party at a time when we don’t need to be divided.” Of course, one might argue it’s that very division that Palin has used to her best advantage. Or that she has done a good job creating the perception...
  • Question to Birthers about Grandma Dunham's Alleged Fraud

    07/09/2010 4:03:53 PM PDT · by curiosity · 171 replies · 3+ views
    One of the reasons birthers demand to see Obama's long-form birth certificate (as opposed to the short form already released) is that only the long-form lists the hospital. Why is the hospital important? Well, birthers claim that if his birth was registered as having taken place at home, then it opens up the possibility that his birth was registered fraudulantly. That is, if he were born in Kenya, his grandma could have gone down to the local registrar, committed perjury by swearing she whitnessed his birth at home in Hawaii, and obtained a birth certificate saying he was born in...

    Clarus Research Group ^ | March 25, 2010 | Ron Faucheux
    A new nonpartisan [see post 1 below for how nonpartisan this poll really is] nationwide poll shows that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is currently the strongest GOP presidential candidate for the 2012 election. The poll also shows President Obama leading all potential Republican candidates, but by narrower margins than he did last August. The poll was conducted March 17-20, 2010 by Clarus Research Group, a Washington, D.C.-based polling firm, using live telephone interviewers. It was based on a representative nationwide sample of 1,050 U.S. registered voters, with a margin of error of +/- 3 percent. The survey was not...

    After Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., voted in favor of a jobs bill endorsed by President Obama and the majority of Senate Democrats, I immediately heard from a number of Republican friends in and around Washington, D.C. who knew I am a conservative from Massachusetts. The questions were rapid fire and the anger was surprising. “How dare he side with Obama?” “Is he just a Kennedy Republican?,” and “Where do I go to get my donation back?” My response to all was, “You have got to be kidding me. This guy has not been in office a month, he’s only taken...

    Manassas News/Messenger ^ | 2/16/2010 | Charles Reichley
    Last week, this paper ran an editorial attacking ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, saying "If there was ever any doubt that Sarah Palin is a fool, she has removed it." ... the paper's editorial was off base, short on facts, long on innuendo and did a disservice to her considerable achievements. ... The editorial said Palin was partisan and predictable when attacking Rahm Emanuel for using the word "retarded" as a pejorative. ... The editorial misses the bigger point. Rush is a private citizen commenting on a talk show. We may not like what he says, but he speaks for himself....

    Since the beginning of 2010 there have been umpteen articles or polls regarding questioning the 'qualifications' of Sarah Palin for President of the United States. Here is a statement by Matthew Dowd, ex-Bush aide in the fall of 2009 that puts the topic in perspective: "No sitting President of the United States in the 60 year history of the Gallup poll has failed to be re-elected going into the fall campaign if his job approval number was above 51% and no president with below 47% has been re-elected." "The 2012 election will be PRIMARILY about our current president and whether...

    The Salt Lake City Tribune ^ | February 12, 2010 | Robyn Blumner
    Since Sarah Palin won't rule out running for the presidency in 2012, her performance recently at the Tea Party convention in Nashville deserves more scrutiny. Voters may have to soon evaluate her as a future leader of our nation and defender of the free world. Which makes her strikingly vapid answers to the softball questions thrown her way all the more frightening. When Palin barnstormed the country as Sen. John McCain's running mate, she had a glaring lack of comprehension of national issues. But then, she had a lot to learn in a short time. By now she should be...
