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.

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?

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?

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.

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.

What´s Wrong with the Right

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?

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

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

Hillary Clinton’s top 2016 worry

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.

If Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he’ll have to defend his family’s controversial political name. But more immediate family concerns might keep him from running at all.Republican donors and operatives are chattering about Bush’s publicity-shy wife, so worried she isn’t on board with a 2016 White House run that they’re urging people in the family’s orbit to make the case. Columba Bush has long been deeply averse to the spotlight, especially after an embarrassing encounter with U.S. Customs while her husband was still in office.

Romney Plugs Establishment
Candidate in Key GOP Primary

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has launched an unprecedented effort to defend vulnerable pro-business incumbents in Republican primaries this year, is enlisting a big gun to boost its favored candidate in Idaho. In a new Chamber ad, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney touts his support of Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson, an establishment Republican facing a difficult May 20 primary. Romney endorsed Simpson last year, but this is his first foray into television ads in the 2014 cycle. “You can take it from me,” Romney says in the spot. “The conservative choice for Congress is Mike Simpson.”

No, it’s not that he’s a former lobbyist (though he is). Or that he worked in George W.

He’s from New Jersey. Sure, Gillespie has lived for more than two decades in Virginia’s Fairfax County, where he’s raised a family, gone

After a stretch of anemic fundraising, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC raised more cash in March than it did during the previous 14 months combined, according to summaries of campaign filings released Monday. The GOP establishment´s favorite super PAC raised almost $5.2 million last month and had more than $6.3 million in the bank as of March 31, according to the report summary. That cash will be used as the outside group tries to help Republicans pick up the six seats they need to win control of the Senate.

Hillary Clinton is Obama´s

There are very few genuinely new moments in American politics. Ronald Reagan´s election in 1980 was one of them. President Obama´s triumph in 2008 another. Both were transformative elections, presidencies and men. And both led to parties that struggled for a voice after their defining leader left the scene. George H.W. Bush was a safe and reliable choice for the GOP in 1988: a longtime Washington hand with a golden resume and a seemingly endless and loyal list of supporters and donors. Lots of folks didn´t like him, of course, inside his own party, inside the Democrats, inside the media and outside

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

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday.

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'

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said.
