Recalling how former Vice Presidents Al Gore and Dan Quayle fulfilled their roles in certifying elections they lost was much more influential in former Vice President Mike Pence’s ceremonial ending of the 2020 campaign than his boss, former President Donald Trump. In one of several interviews to promote his new book, Pence said he looked to the examples of Quayle and Gore in deciding to certify the election of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on Jan. 6, 2021.


He must be trying for some obscure Guinness World Record.

If President Trump had one weakness, it was picking the worst possible people. This is another example. He would have done better to throw darts at a phone book (of anywhere but DC) and pick who the dart hit.

I really remember nothing about Quayle other than the Potato Caper. Maybe he’s a good man. But an absolutely obscure reference to a figure that’s barely a footnote from 40 years ago. How gooooofy. Al Gore. Pence must be thinking of the episode where gore chased the masseuse around his hotel room. Or maybe the tobacco farming or the dirty mining. Or making a fortune on scamming the public into doling out massive amounts of money for a technology that cannot work on a large scale until we discover new physical laws to live by. My God i used to think he was stupid. He’s getting down to biden territory. The Bi-Q. He’s gone Bi-Q. I guess running for president is guaranteed to be profitable.

Dan Quayle was a Senator from Pence's state of Indiana. A very smart guy that ate Teddy Kennedy's lunch over nuclear arms debate. He was a Reagan man through and through, 30 years ago. He was brutally used by the H W administration, I think because of it. Maybe Dan and Al will come out and bring their reputations with them and support Mr. Pence. That'll be fun.

His act is finally so over with any America-loving, God-fearing conservative. I think, HE really thinks the ole Bush-Rove playbook is gonna work for him. Trump outted this guy and I was very sorry to see his brother was elected to anything!! Dan Quayle. Nice man. Unfortunately, those Bush era nice men allowed great damage to the country by consistently refusing to FIGHT. They all chose the easy go along get along way which prospered them and their families. I prefer patriots because the “nice” risk averse types were not to be found amongst the Founders of this great nation.

#18, when Pence was governor of Indiana, the state legislature passed a law which banned LGBTs from suing people for not making cakes, etc. IIRC, it was called the Freedom of Religion Act. Pence signed it and then, when the alphabet folks went nuts, he caved and “unsigned” it. I was not happy when Trump chose him - he proved himself to be completely untrustworthy way back then and had done it repeatedly ever since. He’s a snake. Al Gore???? Maybe Mikey is looking for his own second Chakra.

Onetime top Republican strategist and insider Bill Kristol has already gone to the other side with his anti-Trump attacks and his embrace of the Democratic Party. But now, he has cemented his switch by praising House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s creation of the Jan. 6 inquisition and elevation of another GOP rebel, Rep. Liz Cheney, as the co-chair of the panel. “I think Nancy Pelosi does not get enough credit for doing everything she did to put Liz Cheney front and center at the Jan. 6 committee,” he said in a Zoom conference sponsored by the liberal think tank NDN.

If Democrats could pull off an upset in Utah, it would have profound consequences for the control of the Senate — and the rest of the country. Republican senators are growing concerned by colleague Mitt Romney’s refusal to help fellow Utah Republican Mike Lee decisively win his re-election campaign — a posture that could potentially keep their party from gaining a majority in the November elections. Unlike every other Republican senator, the 2012 failed Republican presidential candidate is declining to express a preference in Republican Lee’s re-election effort against Democrat-endorsed Evan McMullin.

“Number one is that I think a lot of the attacks on the FBI are over the top because a decision like this is not made by the FBI,” former Attorney General William Barr told the Bari Weiss podcast on August 25. “In fact, I don’t think the FBI would push a decision that it’s best to go in and search and obtain those documents after being jerked around for a year and a half. The decision would be made at the Department of Justice. (snip) I think the idea that the FBI is the problem here is misplaced.”

Don’t go, Boss! That’s my strong advice to President Trump as he prepares to deliver a speech in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday at his alleged “think tank,” the America First Policy Institute (AFPI). Yes, it is important for President Trump to have a well-credentialed stable of policy experts capable of both building a 2024 platform and finding solid MAGA talent to populate a new Trump Administration. But the AFPI Trojan Horse—whose leadership is now bragging about how it will staff Trump’s “shadow cabinet”—is decidedly not that.

Faced with questions about his ability to lead after the midterm election debacle, a defiant Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell deflected blame from his own culpability in the Democrats retaining control of the upper chamber and instead blamed it on public dissatisfaction with MAGA candidates. The embattled McConnell spoke to reporters on Tuesday, defending his dismal performance and the refusal to adequately fund candidates who were endorsed by former and perhaps future President Donald J. Trump such as Blake Masters in Arizona, instead spending money to support RINO Lisa Murkowski in Alaska against her America first opponent, also a Republican.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday she will step down from her leadership role after two decades in the post. “I will not seek re-election to Democratic leadership in the next Congress,” Pelosi said. The first female speaker added that she will continue to represent the people in San Francisco in the House. The California lawmaker will relinquish her position as head of the Democratic caucus, which she’s held for 19 years, to make way for a “new generation to lead.” With her leadership still in high demand in her party, Pelosi will likely help manage her successor’s transition

In four short years, we reviled the economy, unleashed American energy, appointed conservatives to our courts at every level. But in the end, our administration did not end well.

The 37-10 vote—which was conducted behind closed doors—comes after an underwhelming midterm election cycle for Republican Senate candidates that opened McConnell up to a challenge from Florida Senator Rick Scott, the head of the National Republican Senate Committee and a longtime rival of McConnell's who has sought to make inroads into Republican leadership for years.

Sen.

'We're short of workers, we have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to,' the New York Democrat reasoned. 'The only way we're going to have a great future is if we welcome and embrace immigrants… get a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many there are here.'

America's #1 cable news channel was the outlet that former vice president Mike Pence chose on Tuesday evening to do everything but formally declare that he will be a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. In an extensive live interview with Bret Baier from New York, where he is promoting his political memoir, So Help Me God, published yesterday (including an hour-long town hall on CNN tonight), Pence used the high-profile platform of Fox News to position himself as a sane, moderate, Christian-inspired alternative to President Trump as well as any other candidates among the growing number who plan to challenge President Biden in two years.

Senate Republicans voted Wednesday to elect Sen.

A large majority of GOP senators voted to elect McConnell leader after a motion backed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and other conservatives to delay the leadership election until after the Dec. 6 Georgia runoff failed.
