NRCC hits Colbert Busch with
´Words with Elizabeth´ website

The Hill [Washington DC], by Cameron Joseph

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/8/2013 12:46:21 PM

The National Republican Congressional Committee is launching "Words with Elizabeth," a new website hitting House candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch (D). The site, designed to look like the popular "Words with Friends" Web game, outlines what will likely be the main GOP lines of attack in her race against former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R). The Scrabble-like board features her playing against President Obama and spells out "ObamaCare," "Rubberstamp" and "Vacay." The NRCC has promised to attack Colbert Busch for saying she supports parts of the Democratic health law, tie her to Obama and

They´d better do something, now that we´ve been saddled with Gov Sanford as our GOP contender. Yes, I would vote for him if I lived in SC D1, but I sure wouldn´t like it, and I *sure* would be a thorn in his flesh to make sure he knows exactly what is expected of him. Perhaps I will do that in any case.

Sanford is going to have a difficult time. He has already suffered from one Busch too many.

My message to the folks in SC D1.

Hold your nose and vote for Sanford.

And fix it in 2014 with a true GOP conservative who isn´t a nutcase.

(Sadly, being a nutcase IS a requirement for Democrat candidates. And Steven Colbert´s sister qualifies for that honor with distinction.)

"12 Years a Slave" went into the 71st Golden Globe Awards on Sunday night with seven nominations but was passed over again and again. That is, until the last award of the evening, and arguably the best of them all. The harrowing portrayal of slavery in America took home the prize for best drama of 2013. The film´s director, Steve McQueen, seemed surprised by the win. "Little bit in shock," said the British filmmaker, clutching the award. "I wasn´t expecting it." But the evening´s biggest victor was David O. Russell´s Abscam-inspired comedy, "American Hustle." It won three trophies during the

The people at NBC News and Meet the Press should be ashamed of themselves. With all that happened last week - a bombshell new book released by a former Defense Secretary as well as the worst jobs report in years - David Gregory and Company decided to devote more than half of their show Sunday to the truly earth-shattering Bridgegate scandal that directly impacted a small percentage of the nation. "What a week in politics, playing defense, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie right there, responding to the bridge scandal rocking his administration, raising questions about the impact on a possible

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates sharply questions President Obama´s "passion" for military matters in his forthcoming memoir, and claims that practically the only time he saw that in the president was during his push to repeal "don´t ask, don´t tell." The former Pentagon chief said in an interview aired Sunday that he was "disturbed" by Obama´s "absence of passion" when it came to his military strategy. But in the book, "Duty," reviewed by Fox News, Gates hit Obama harder -- and in personal terms -- by contrasting his style with that of former President George W. Bush. "One quality I

On Friday, when asked by Extra´s Mario Lopez, Palin said she would be open to doing a talk show like Ellen or Oprah. “That probably would be a fun opportunity as long as I got to pick the subject matter and got to talk to more inspiring people out there to help empower others," Palin said.

According to the new YouGov.com poll conducted for the Times of London, Microsoft´s Bill Gates is the most admired person in the world, ahead of Pope Francis and President Obama, the runner-up on that list. Clinton ranks 27th on YouGov´s world list.

A grieving man recently widowed was so moved by seeing a young couple enjoying each other´s company while out dining on Tuesday that he paid for their meal in a very generous ‘pay it forward’ gesture. The heart-warming incident happened at an unnamed restaurant in Barrie, Ontario, where Lee Ballantyne was dining alone for the first time since his wife Carol had passed away from cancer on December 30. As Lee watched the young couple and reflected on his 43 years of marriage he was so inspired that he wrote the couple a touching note on a napkin and paid

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Katie Couric left two prominent shows at CBS and ABC because Americans just did not want to tune in to watch her. When Extra´s Mario Lopez asked Palin on Friday about the cancellation of Couric´s talk show, Palin said she remembered "getting a couple of texts that said things like, ´Oh sorry that it didn’t work out there at CBS or ABC.´" Palin was referring to Couric´s departure from CBS after ratings for the network´s evening newscast tanked with Couric as the anchor.

The Maricopa County Republican Party in Arizona formally censured Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Saturday evening by an overwhelming 1150-351 vote, Breitbart News has learned. Maricopa County is Arizona´s most populous county and includes Phoenix within its borders. The official GOP body´s rebuke undermines McCain´s reelection chances should he decide to run for the Senate again in 2016. “As leaders in the Republican Party, we are obligated to fully support our Party, platform, and its candidates,” the formal censure resolution reads. “Only in times of great crisis or betrayal is it necessary to publicly censure our leaders.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat who is also chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, will join Vice President Joseph R. Biden in the presidential delegation attending the state funeral of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, the White House said Sunday. President Obama also selected for the delegation Rep. Eliot Engel, New York Democrat; Daniel Shapiro, the U.S. ambassador to Israel; and Daniel Kurtzer, former U.S. ambassador to Israel. Mr. Sharon died Saturday at age 85 after eight years in a coma due to a stroke. A state memorial ceremony is planned for Monday in Israel, with world

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Face the Nation Sunday morning that he had no regrets about the timing or tone of his forthcoming memoir Duty, excerpts of which stirred up controversy in some quarters this week about President Barack Obama’s faith in his Afghanistan strategy. “With the experience and perspective of working for eight presidents and having been secretary for four-and-a-half years, I didn’t think that waiting until 2017 to weigh into these issues made any sense,” said Gates, who is recovering from a neck injury. While many have read the excerpts as critical of Obama’s foreign policy, Gates

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus sparred with Meet the Press host David Gregory on Sunday morning over whether New Jersey Governor Chris Christie should be held liable for creating a “culture” in his administration that encouraged political retribution, as the chairman had said President Barack Obama should be with regards to the IRS scandal. “He trusted people that lied to him and he fired those people,” Priebus said. “The president doubles down on Eric Holder, he doubles down on Hillary Clinton and Lois Lerner and Susan Rice. It’s the opposite effect.” “There’s some deflection going on here,” Gregory said. “You said

The pizza arrived, steaming and delectable, a smoked-mozzarella-and-sausage pie presented to Mayor Bill de Blasio like a gilded offering to a visiting caliph. The mayor, on a pilgrimage on Friday to Goodfellas, a venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork. Cue the foodie firestorm. “Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with the hands, and the hands only. One website called it Mr. de Blasio’s first mistake as mayor.

You can feel the charm when you watch her operate in person, that Sarah Palin. You don’t expect it, but it’s there – the awkward mix of pseudo-authenticity and charisma, the smooth way with a room full of reporters, the way she just carries on, regardless. Me, I was taken aback. She’s practically my new bestie, now. Squeezed my hand, called me “honey,” even stopped to squeeze my shoulder on her way out and thank me. We had a wee chat and a laugh.

Most government scandals involve the manipulation of the system in obscure ways by people no one has ever heard of. That is why George Washington Bridgegate is nearly a perfect scandal — because it is comprehensible and (as they say in Hollywood) “relatable” to everyone who has ever been in a car. This is the reason this one is not going to go away so easily, even if one accepts the contention that Gov. Chris Christie had nothing whatsoever to do with it.(snip)Journalists know the Obamans. Intimately. They know them from college, they know them from work, they know them

Earlier this week, there was a spring in conservatives’ step. That was because Chris Christie was in deep doo-doo. His career seemed to be imploding, over Bridgegate. Conservatives hadn’t been so happy since the Obamacare rollout (which wasn’t that long ago). The end of Christie’s career would not be a good thing — for New Jersey, for the Republican party, for conservatism, or for the country. He is a valuable conservative, one of the most talented politicians in America. We are lucky to have him on our side — general side. Lately, I have been more and more impatient with 100-percenters —

Chris Christie took the first step in damage control Thursday by apologizing and announcing he was firing two of his closest aides connected to a scheme to jam up traffic on the George Washington Bridge. But despite a textbook press conference, his longer-term political problem is likely to be from his own party, where the scandal is giving a legion of under-the-radar Christie skeptics room to criticize the governor.Christie´s base has always been his New Jersey inner circle and Wall Street donors enthused over his electability and pragmatic approach to governance. By contrast, Christie never engendered deep support among Washington

Michelle Obama entered the White House as a chimera. To some, she was emblematic of fully realized African American womanhood and an incomparable fashion icon. To others, she was the voice of racial grievance, the nanny state and Seventh Avenue vanity. She has proved herself to be neither vengeful nor the patron saint of activist feminism. Yet misperceptions linger. So as she celebrates her 50th birthday, here are a few facts in the face of persistent fictions. 1. Michelle Obama is the most fashion-friendly first lady.

Monday For many years now, I have endured a mild skin disorder, rarely fatal. I usually am monitored by a fine doctor in Rancho Mirage. But I wanted a dermatologist near our home in Beverly Hills, so I asked around and got a reference for a Dr. Wang, as I will call him. (Not his real name.) This afternoon, I entered his tiny waiting room, introduced myself to the young women behind the counter and smiled. The women asked me to fill out several forms, which I did and handed them back.
