Mike Huckabee did not say this, either

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
Two days ago Mike Huckabee denied calling Mitt Romney dishonest because of the negative attacks run by Romney, and asked Newt to take down an ad featuring Huckabee calling Romney dishonest because Huckabee denied what was on the video even though it was on the video. So remember, this also did not…

Hope and change some didn’t believe in

Posted by  ▪  January 29, 2012
Thanks to reader Doug, who writes: Spotted today near Point Of Rocks, (Peoples Democratic Republic of) Maryland. I think we know where this person stands. I especially like the greeting to the ACLU. Personally, this is my favorite, a reminder of those who stood with him and those who stood against him:
 

Saturday Night Card Game (Republican debate was racist before they said a word)

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
Haven’t had much time to devote to the card game because I’m too busy trying to save the Republican Party from itself. But links are being saved, and I don’t want this one to grow stale. It speaks for itself:
 

Romney is winning his battles, but losing our war

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
If you asked me even a couple of weeks ago whether the Republican Party could heal from the wounds of this election cycle in time to unite against Obama, I would have said “Yes.” I’m not so sure anymore.  After the South Carolina primary the Republican establishment, and media supporters like Matt Drudge, launched…

The most popular video of the week was ….

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
No, not the video I posted of Nancy Reagan. It was, according to Israel Matzav, a video of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wishing China a Happy New Year, receiving 40 million views not including people who viewed it on Chinese television: Related:  Bibi sends Christmas Greetings Netanyahu at the U.N. – Theater of the Absurd “Listening to…

What it is ain’t exactly clear

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
In keeping with the video of the day, the polling isn’t exactly clear on what is happening here. On the one hand, numerous polls show Romney moving to a mid-to-high single digit lead in Florida, but Gallup and most other national polls show no upward movement for Romney nationally: How is it that Romney would…

Why is Jason Chaffetz stalking Newt rallies for Romney?

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
The Romney campaign has been sending representatives to Newt rallies in the hope of distracting media attention away from Newt. I think it’s a silly ploy which reflects a campaign that can only gain ground by attacking and disrupting others. But why is rising star Jason Chaffetz participating in this? Why would he turn…

Huckabee was referring to Romney in the “if a man’s dishonest” clip

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
What is going on in the Republican Party? Mike Huckabee claims that Newt is using a clip from Huckabee in 2008 out of context because Huckabee was not referring to Mitt Romney, but in fact Huckabee obviously was referring to Romney. Here’s the video of Huckabee voicing his objection (the discussion starts at…

Careful not to bite your tongue

Posted by  ▪  January 28, 2012
Thanks to reader Cathy who sent this photo with the subject line “Yeah–I wrote that”: While strolling in a beautiful small Florida town I happened to spy this flyer in an unlocked local community board. I had to add my two cents. These stupids make my teeth grind.
 

Sarah Palin: “this ridiculous opposition dump on Newt was nothing short of Stalin-esque re-writing of history”

Posted by  ▪  January 27, 2012
Wow. Sarah Palin just launched a thousand points of fright at Team Romney and the Republican establishment who have been going after Newt’s relationship with Ronald Reagan, via Facebook: We have witnessed something very disturbing this week. The Republican establishment which fought Ronald Reagan in the 1970s and which continues to fight the grassroots…

Power to the tiny blogger people!

Posted by  ▪  January 27, 2012
The Nancy Reagan video I posted the other day now has over 18,000 views on YouTube, was uploaded or linked at Real Clear Politics, Daily Caller, Breitbart TV and dozens of other websites, mentioned by Rush and Hannity, and at the debate. Drudge may try to control the narrative, but he doesn’t control information: Elsewhere: Sad…

“If this is what the conservative movement has become, then count me out”

Posted by  ▪  January 27, 2012
I finaly have an embedable version of Mark Levin’s comments yesterday about the attacks on Newt. It is a sad commentary on the damage people have done in the name of electing Mitt Romney. Add it to the list. “I’m going to tell you something. Newt Gingrich was the former Republican Speaker of…

Lying about Reagan to get Romney elected

Posted by  ▪  January 27, 2012
I have been pounding the keyboard all week about the lies and distortions of the Romney campaign and supporters about Newt’s record of support for Ronald Reagan. These allegations were played out by the Romney campaign and on Drudge, and did serious damage to Newt, both substantively and by forcing Newt to…

My winter break.

Happy 2012, everyone! I just started my final semester at Cornell, which promises to be exciting. Before I delve into current events, I thought I would take my first post back to recap my winter break in south east Asia. I spent one week in Hong Kong and another in Singapore….

Managing our (space) decline

Posted by  ▪  January 27, 2012
Did you witness the pile on Newt last night about his vision for new space exploration and the reinvigoration of the space industry? While some of Newt’s space ideas (they’re just ideas, not proposals) are grandiose in the way we always have dreamed of space, his proposals for private industry incentives and the desire…

It is worth getting angry about

Posted by  ▪  January 27, 2012
Whatever my criticisms of Rick Santorum, we owe him a debt of gratitude for this segment last night, which confirmed that Mitt Romney loves him some Romneycare: As Jeffrey Anderson writes, Romney’s defense of Romneycare will be political death in the general election: Romney then replied by issuing a defense of Romneycare th…
