Bill Kristol: Romney
‘Has A Thin Resume For
A Presidential Candidate’

Mediaite, by Meenal Vamburkar

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/3/2012 6:40:06 PM

Mitt Romney‘s business background may not be as applicable to government as he says, The Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol and former GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman said on Wednesday. During a Brookings Institution panel, Kristol also argued that Romney’s resume is rather “thin.” The Romney campaign has long argued that the former governor’s business experience makes him well-equipped to run government as well. Huntsman questioned part of this assertion. “I haven’t seen a good example yet of a businessperson come into government and make it run like a business,” Huntsman said. “We forget that the

Comments:
Get your duct tape out for this one! This really ticks me off. What in the world is Kristol's problem?? This is the last thing we need is for him spew this insanity to of all places the Huffington Post. It is absolutely outrageous. The leftists will be thrilled to use this material against Romney. It's just outrageous!

That's it, I really can't stand Beltway Billy Kristol. He is so out of touch, and he is not a Conservative. He is a cocktail party chitter chatter hen. Time to retire Billy.

And Bill Kristol has a "thin resume" for someone claiming to have an IQ higher than his shoe size.. The abominable pumpkin-faced-Kristol has been a thorn in the side of the GOP since he sabotaged any chance Dan Quayle had in politics by pretending to be his "chief of staff" when he was actually a back-stabbing-ingrate! He is a despicable little reprobate who should be on messnbc along with banjo-boy-joe-scarborough, another so-called "conservative" who sold his pathetic soul to be invited to the cocktail parties, where the demonrats laugh behind his back. Who cares? Whew! That's better!

Some establishment alleged Republicans like Kristol have always been against Romney because they don't think he will play with the old boy network of which they are a part. It's time for Kristol to join the ranks of Peggy Noonan and to be henceforth ignored and driven away.

Mitt Romney ran a large corporation, managed the Olympics, another large organization, and was elected governor of a heavily populated state with a large democrat majority. Very few politicians have the extent and variety of experience that Romney does. Kristol is an idiot who has spent way too much time studying his navel. No more of him please.

Wallace had the nerve to repeat what abccbsnbccnn said .... he said to Ryan Sunday...you're losing....funny the other networks used this this last week as the phrase of the week.

When Kristol's parents were young, they were Trotskyites. They came to their sense, became quite staunch Conservatives. It seems, however, that a bit of Trotsky was left in their genes, and Bill is manifesting the signs of regression.

As Michael Savage would say, "liberalism is a mental disease."

Yes. Romney has no experience at all in community organizing, for example. He was never known for taking an advance payment for a book and then failing to write it. We just don't enough about this man, contrasted with President O, who graciously told us everything he wanted us to think in two biographies.

The prez, as a legislator, knew when to vote Present, as opposed to taking a foolish side. Romney took stupid little jobs such as being a Bain executive, a person who pulled the Olympics out of a spot, and being governor of Maine or somewhere in the orginal colonies just for sport.

We don't want Romney to push a lot of stuff such as economic recovery because we treasure fairness of outcome,free cellphones and stretching the Constitution to the breaking point and beyond. So the choice is clear.

Bill Kristol has shown himself to have a thin character.
Kristol ,Scarborough , Noonan , Laura Ingraham , et. al. are considered Republican leaders because they
can always be relied upon to trash Republicans .
None of them has ever had the stones to run
for president ,but, tomorrow they'll
all be running down Romney's debate performance to impress their media buddies.
Any Republican pundit or talking head
who aids the media cockroaches
and the Obama campaign by trashing
Romney in public , 30 + days before this election ,
when they could easily contact
them in private ,
is a Quisling.

Smart power for the 21st century
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Lanny Davis    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/9/2014 10:46:27 PM     Post Reply
By the turn of the 21st century, it was clear that a new approach to the use of American power to protect our national interests and values was necessary. At the risk of some over-simplification, by the end of former President George W. Bush’s second term, essentially two lines of thinking had emerged. On the right was a preference for the use of “hard power” — the use of military force and intervention to protect U.S. interests. On the left was a growing bias against military intervention of any kind and in favor of “soft power” — economic aid and

Conservatives are increasingly targeting House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, arguing that he has abandoned conservative principles and protesting his planned meeting with moderate and liberal Republicans. Mr. Cantor, who just a few years ago was seen as a champion for conservatives in the House and a possible candidate to replace House Speaker John A. Boehner, now is viewed with suspicion, said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican.“I think that Boehner can survive the discontent that the tea party and the more conservative element of the Republican Party has, but I don’t think that is true of Cantor,” Mr. Rohrabacher told The

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article

A federal court Wednesday ordered the University of North Carolina-Wilmington to promote and give $50,000 in back pay to a conservative professor in what is described as a landmark anti-discrimination case. The restitution was ordered three weeks after a jury found the university guilty of retaliating against criminology professor Mike Adams, a popular conservative columnist on Townhall.com, after denying him a promotion to full professor in 2006. “This ruling sends a message to public universities: Academic freedom isn’t just for the Left, it’s a constitutional right for all professors — even Christian conservatives,” said David French, senior counsel at the conservative American

President Obama will speak next month at a gala celebrating the 20th anniversary of a Holocaust history foundation established by director Steven Spielberg. The USC Shoah Foundation, created by Spielberg after he completed the film "Schindler´s List," will honor Obama with its Ambassador to Humanity Award at an event in Los Angeles on May 7. “President Obama´s commitment to democracy and human rights has long been felt,” Spielberg said in a statement. “As a constitutional scholar and as president, his interest in expanding justice and opportunity and all is remarkably evident.” The Shoah Foundation collects and preserves video testimonies of

Immigration reform is one of the most pressing civil rights issues of the modern era, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said on Wednesday. Lewis, a civil rights icon and the only surviving speaker from the 1963 March on Washington, said Congress needs to pass reform — and that the American public must pressure it to do so. "The most pressing need for young people and for older Americans, for all of us, is to move with all deliberate speed to create a truly multicultural, multiracial democratic society.

It was Iowa Muslim day at the Iowa Capitol on Monday with Muslims sharing pastries and other ethnic foods in the Rotunda while providing information about their faith and work in Iowa. Gov. Terry Branstad signed a proclamation for Muslim Recognition Day in Iowa, something the Republican chief executive first did in 1992 during his previous tenure as governor. About 50 Iowa Muslims joined him in the governor´s formal office and applauded during a signing ceremony. The Muslims who gathered at the Capitol included native-born Iowans, and Muslims who have immigrated to Iowa from Bosnia, Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Egypt and

Media Hacks Who Have Never
Voted Republican Continue
To Tout Jeb Bush For 2016
PJ Media, by Stephen Kruiser    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/9/2014 9:00:34 PM     Post Reply
Drivel, drivel, toil and snivel… Two months ago, I predicted that Jeb Bush would be the Republican nominee for president in 2016. The case was simple. With Chris Christie’s nascent presidential campaign fatally imploding and the rest of the GOP field too weak to stop the Hillary Clinton juggernaut, a panicked Republican establishment was bound to turn to a known, safe, and relatively centrist quantity to serve as its standard bearer. There are many more words in the article but that first paragraph was all that he really wanted to say: “Real conservative candidates weak, Hillary JUGGERNAUT!” “Juggernaut” in this

Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan

Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Paul Ryan are collaborating on an Obamacare alternative and could announce the proposal as early as this month, according to Republican sources. Both Republicans have been regularly engaged in pushing legislation on major issues — and both have made it a habit to form cross-chamber partnerships to further those endeavors. But this particular partnership is notable given the high-profile nature of health care reform and that Rubio, Florida´s junior senator, and Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman from Wisconsin, are both considered possible contenders for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.

Argh: Cat Stevens Allowed To Enter

It’s bad enough that Cat Stevens — a.k.a. Muslim weirdo Yusuf Islam — will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday night. (Don’t blame me — I tried to stop it…) But I was hoping he’d at least be banned from entering America, based on his habit of wishing aloud for the murder of Salman Rushdie and such. No luck there, either. Stevens performed on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night, so we know he’s in the country. I can only wish that fellow inductee Gene Simmons of KISS — being Jewish and all — will

Jimmy Carter: U.S. Shouldn’t Bomb Iran
Even If They Get a Nuclear Weapon

Former President Jimmy Carter joined MSNBC’s Chris Matthews for an interview on Hardball Wednesday and made some news by saying he does not think the United States should bomb Iran even if they were to succeed in building an operational nuclear weapon. This statement differs not only from recent comments made by former Vice President Dick Cheney but also from the stated position of President Barack Obama. “I never have felt that Israel had a capability militarily to go 1,200 miles or more and bomb Iran effectively and then return back to Israel,” said of Cheney’s suggestion that Israel could

Senate insiders say that senior Treasury Department officials have been lying for years about their backroom efforts to oppose and dismantle Iran sanctions legislation that ultimately forced Tehran to the bargaining table over its illicit nuclear program. Top officials in the Treasury and State Departments are said to have staunchly opposed the 2011 passage of the sanctions legislation authored by Sens. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.) and Mark Kirk (R., Ill.), and even worked to dismantle key pieces of the bill after it was passed by the Senate in a 100-0 vote, according to senior Senate insiders who worked on the

House Republicans won´t rule out arresting

House Ways and Means Committee Republicans aren´t ruling out the use of the chamber´s "inherent contempt" authority if Attorney General Eric Holder refuses to act on the panel´s accusations against former IRS official Lois Lerner. The committee voted Wednesday to seek an investigation of whether Lerner violated federal law by using her power to ensure Right-leaning groups were targeted for extra scrutiny by the agency, giving misleading information during a probe of the matter by the Treasury Department´s inspector general and using her personal email to conduct official business, which could have resulted in the disclosure of confidential taxpayer information.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
