Romney brings out big guns, shoots self in foot

Posted by  ▪  December 8, 2011

Romney is losing it.  His coordinated assault on Newt does not make the case for Romney. And it’s embarrassing.  Romney brought out former Congressman and former Senator Jim Talent to bash Newt’s leadership as Speaker. Talent forgets that the internet

Scott Brown needs to rediscover what got him elected in the first place

Posted by  ▪  December 8, 2011

No one could have seen this coming, right? Democrat Elizabeth Warren has opened up a lead against Republican incumbent Scott Brown for the first time in their U.S. Senate showdown, but a barrage of attack ads appears to have damaged

Ben Nelson, the farewell song

Posted by  ▪  December 8, 2011

Democratic Senator Ben Nelson from Nebraska negotiated the now infamous “Cornhusker Kickback” payoff from Obama for Nelson’s vote in favor of Obamacare. The payoff was an embarrassment for the people of Nebraska, as I noted at the time.  One Nebraska family care

It would be easier

to coexist with you if you weren’t such an offensive, self-righteous, self-indulgent big mouth. Thanks to reader David who took this photo (at a red light, right?) in Havertown, PA, in August:

Romney sending John Sununu to attack Newt is a second unexpected Christmas present

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

As I noted the other day, Mitt Romney’s new strategy is to send out surrogates to attack Newt. Tomorrow it is former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu, a big name in New Hampshire politics but someone whose name is associated with

Fraud, etc.

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

Some interesting doings: He may not have stolen the whole election, but he may have stolen Indiana. Via Sarah Palin, looks like Fast & Furious was purely political, to make the case for gun control, the smoking gun. I know

Please, let it be sandbagging.

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

One of my friends circulated a link to a disturbing article from WaPo: When an adult took standardized tests forced on kids. Basically, an “administrator” with a BS and two MAs flunked this extremely basic 10th grade Florida state math

Newt: I’ll appoint John Bolton as Secretary of State

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

At the Republican Jewish Coalition conference a few minutes ago Newt Gingrich announced “If he will accept it, I will appoint John Bolton as Secretary of State.” I’ll post the video when available, it was a great speech with lots

Obama cancels vacation, Romney claims credit

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

After a firestorm of controversy, Obama is cancelling his Hawaii vacation. Association does not equal causation.  But what the hey, that’s what campaign managers are for: Update: A reader says that the tweet simply is repeating the original headline of

Saga Blago diagnosis in one sentence

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

And so it ends.  14 years, which means just under 12 to serve. As long-time readers know, I’ve followed Saga Blago almost since the beginning of this blog.  It was my first and longest lasting blog obsession. I take no joy

Showdown in Sioux City

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

I’m really looking forward to the Fox News Iowa Debate on December 15 in Sioux City. Really looking forward to it, because Romney has to go after Newt big time.  He can’t leave it to Ron Paul or Michele Bachmann.

Obama grows shorter

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

I have posted numerous times before about Obama’s penchant for creating false choices in his speeches, invariably some non-existent supposedly conservative position versus his position. This enables Obama to knock down the conservative straw man and make his own position seem

The company he still keeps

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

I posted two days ago about the interrelationship between the Obama campaign and the Center for American Progress, White House and Think Progress merger complete.  A former senior Obama campaign staffer now runs CAP, and a current senior CAP strategist

“They fear him with a great fear, and with extremely good reason”

Posted by  ▪  December 7, 2011

Great analysis of Nancy Pelosi’s threatened blackmail of Newt Gingrich, from Bill Quick of Daily Pundit (via The Other McCain).  It sure does feel good to read and imagine: You know what, though?  She’s got bupkus that will make any
