Among some Paul Ryan backers,
disappointment at Romney
campaign trajectory

Wasshington Post, by Felicia Sonmez and David A. Fahrenthold

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 9/25/2012 11:19:45 AM

Conservatives had hoped that Mitt Romney’s choice of House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (Wis.) as his running mate would make Romney act more like Ryan — bold, specific, confident. Instead, in the six weeks since Ryan became the GOP vice presidential nominee — and particularly in the three weeks since the Republican National Convention — there has been mounting concern among Republicans that the pick has made Ryan look more like Romney — vague, cautious and limited to preset talking points.

Whew - thank goodness we have the Washington Post to get this information to us.

I am always amazed at the solicitous nature of liberal pubs like the Post when they worry about how Republican campaigns are faring. S/
You don't suppose their concern is really just an excuse to push the agreed-upon narrative that Romney/Ryan can't possibly win against Obama/Biden, do you?

Trucker Observation: Romney's got balance. Media whores have fallen and can't get up. After the elections Conservatives will practice new entertainment without the alphabets, without Hollywood and without Obama and his Democrats.

So the fact that Scott Walker and others are concerned about the lack of message by Romney, they are just in the tank for Obama?

The same retreaded story of the McCain/Palin campaign. Fingers pointed and a great gnashing of teeth. Wash Post doesn't write a story as much as retype stories that worked against Republicans in the past.

Glad to see this article balances out all those "Biden supporters sorely disappointed with the Obama campaign trajectory" stories rolling around.

Phew!

What's that? What do you mean "there are no articles?" No articles like the Biden one I mention?

Not a single one? Zero? Hmmm, imagine that...

Walker said that, among other places, on Charlie Sykes ( another obvious leftist Obamaphile) last last week, reiterated in the Milwaukee Journal. Sykes has it linked. Journal article was posted last week by some brave soul.

But again, this is not a forum for discussion, it is a pep rally among those applauding as the Romney bus slowly rolls off a cliff.

The Elitist/Establishment Rinos pushed Romney, after all the others they pursued said "No". So we are stuck with their 4th choice. The 'broke' it,now they 'own' it. They need to get over themselves and support their 4th or 5th choice. They expect the rest of us to carry their water for them!

The Wah-Poooooooo is a fully owned subsidiary of the DNC. As ordered, they try to plant doubt and division among Republican voters every chance they get.

Nope, not biting. As always, I will crawl naked over broken glass and AIDS infected needles with Mikey Moore and Helen Thomas strapped to my back to vote N∅bama out of office!!!!

And I dare say that I am legion this year!!!!

To paraphrase an old saw. 'Tell me who your friends (fans) are and I'll tell you a lot about yourself'. W/fans like these, Romney hardly needs enemies. But lets not belabour the negative, since it's Romney in a landslide, er...isn't it? Fact is, whatever dynamism exists in his campaign emenates from the likes of Ryan, Walker and TP types, a simple home truth; in contrast to the establishment gang, those humourless, insecure and timid drones surrounding Romney. Upon reflection, I'll bet that Dean Swift had his mind's eye on threads like these when he created Gulliver's Yahoos.

If there were an alternate universe where OP gets to pick the nominee, I suspect I would find it a congenial place. Since I live in a universe where my choices are Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, my vote goes to Mitt. None of which should preclude anyone from offering their candid assessment of current events. Ad hominem attacks on fellow L-Dotters are unbecoming.

Good news for lawmakers who oppose the Keystone XL oil pipeline: San Francisco billionaire Tom Steyer has got your back. Steyer, the hedge-fund-trader-turned-anti-Keystone-activist, pledged Thursday to leverage his largely self-funded super PAC to support members of Congress who come under attack for their opposition to the proposed Canada-to-Texas pipeline. Some Democrats on the Hill have faced Keystone-related attacks not just from Republicans but also from Democratic-friendly labor activists who support the project.

National Review Online took another gratuitous shot at me Thursday in an article defending Ayaan Hirsi Ali, saying: “Hirsi Ali is no Pamela Geller. On the contrary, for her whole life, Hirsi Ali has used anger as a catalyst to great good.” Is it necessary to smear me in order to defend Hirsi Ali? And this is not the first time that NRO has allowed insults and defamation against me and other freedom fighters to run unedited. I hardly know why. But I do know that NRO has no guts, no spine, and no conviction.

A Family Affair:Will Jeb Run?

Politico, by Peter Schweizer    Original Article

Want to know whether Jeb Bush will run for president? Don’t listen to the learned pundits pouring over Electoral College maps and crunching poll numbers, weighing the former Florida governor’s chances against the rest of the putative 2016 Republican field. Put aside for a moment, the very real questions about his immigration stance and whether he’s too much of an Establishment guy in a Tea Party world. Electability matters, of course, but if you want to get Jeb, it’s the last name that counts, and the family history you should consult for clues as to whether he will seek to join

11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord    Original Article

he 2014 election season dawns, with 2016 closing close behind that. Make book that before both are over, the most quoted or cited person in Republican campaigns — and not infrequently in Democrat campaigns as well — will be Ronald Reagan. There is a reason for this, as Reagan biographer — and American Spectator contributor — Paul Kengor notes in his newest Reagan book 11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative. In addition to being a prolific Reagan scholar, Kengor is a professor of political science at Grove City College and the executive director of the college’s Center for Vision & Values. Why is

Why a Sebelius Senate Run
Could Help Republicans
National Journal, by Sarah Mimms    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/17/2014 6:53:38 AM     Post Reply
With jobs and the economy a given, Republicans are working to turn the 2014 elections into an argument over the Affordable Care Act. And that message could be helped by a high-profile Senate race in Kansas against the very woman who oversaw the law´s disastrous rollout. Some Democrats are asking outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to challenge her home state senator, Republican Pat Roberts, in the fall, the The New York Times reported Wednesday. Nominating Sebelius, a potentially serious contender in the state, would force national Republicans to spend money in Kansas, pulling away funds that could help them

Jeb Bush’s optimism school

The Republican Party faces a long-term challenge in presidential elections because it is defining itself as a gloomy enclave, a collection of pessimists who fear what our country is becoming and where it is going. The party’s hope deficit helps explain why there’s a boomlet for Jeb Bush, a man who dares to use the word “love” in a paragraph about illegal immigrants. The flurry doesn’t mean that the former Florida governor is even running for president, let alone that he can win. But Bush is being taken seriously because his approach to politics is so different from what’s on offer

If Hillary Clinton runs for president, she’ll be getting a lot of help from Wall Street. But her friends and confidants there tell me she truly hasn’t decided yet. So why is she hesitating? The big reason, according to these sources, has to do with the dude who occupies the Oval Office now. Barack Obama’s rapidly disintegrating presidency — and the chance it will get even worse — is Clinton’s top worry these days as she weighs whether she’ll run, and can win, in 2016, these folks say.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
