Thursday night former Vice President Dick Cheney held a fundraiser at his home in Jackson, WY, for Mitt Romney. During his remarks, Cheney stressed Romney’s ability to handle the foreign-policy decisions that a commander-in-chief faces, while Romney cautioned that Obama’s foreign-policy mistakes may have even longer lasting implications than his domestic…

It’s all a matter of perspective. I had dinner with a group of people last night, and one of the women was pregnant for the first time at age 37.  Her husband commented that he was going to buy the kid a onesie that said “Now that I’m safe, I’m pro-choice.” …

This driver supports Anybody Else.  From reader Chris, taken in Austin, TX: Professor, you’ve probably seen this one but for what it’s worth. Car next to me saw me taking photo. They honked and gave thumbs up. Mobile tea party? While this other driver supports Anyone Else.  From reader Jeff: From my wife, who is visiting near…

Mourdock outraises Donnelly in 2Q, but still behind in cash on hand

I have previously highlighted Richard Mourdock’s attempt to close the cash gap with Democrat Joe Donnelly. At one level Mourdock has been successful, outraising Donnelly in the 2d Quarter, but since he started behind by $800k and had to spend money on the primary, he still trails: A half-million dollar cash advantage in…

Because you have been bad, and because I want to inflict maximum pain, you must watch all 12 minutes of this video in which Lawrence “Herman Cain didn’t know how to be black” O’Donnell leads a panel of race card players attacking Mitt Romney’s speech to the NAACP. This is the Saturday Night…

The age of Bully Marketing

We’ve become accustomed to leftist agenda-ists using campaigns of intimidation and bullying to push their way into the public school system, museums, our churches and synagogues, and of course into the old guard media. Are consumer packaged goods the final frontier? By now you’ve probably seen the Kraft Foods “gay pride” oreo…

Why this is borderline … well you know … fiscal responsibility.  There’s nothing worse than that. From Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stoner, Romney’s ‘Free Stuff’ Speech Is a New Low Wow. If you live long enough, you’ll see some truly gross things in politics, but Mitt Romney’s work this past week “courting black…

We’re in La La Land, and my wife and I had the pleasure of meeting up with commenter LukeHandCool (below) and his wife, and separately with Cassandra Lite. The photo is overlooking the left coast in Santa Monica. Don’t worry, we’re not going to do the Althouse-Meade thing.

We need to start going there.  Nothing is off limits anymore. Via Mediaite: “They really don’t want to talk about the economy now, do they?” Eric Bolling asked, before handing it off to Greg Gutfeld, who seemed somewhat amused by the whole thing amusing consider Obama is from Chicago. Chicago. You know, the…

Elizabeth Warren cannot escape the public’s questions about her claims to Native American ancestry. A live chat today demonstrates how deeply the issue has permeated the campaign dialogue. On the local Massachusetts community news website, Patch.com, Elizabeth Warren participated in a live chat where the site invited readers to ask questions of the Democratic Senate candidate. The…

It probably will not stop those who want to portray the case as racial from continuing to make claims of racial motivation in the shooting of Trayvon Martin, but the FBI has confirmed that there is no substantial evidence that George Zimmerman was racist. Via Orlando Sentinel, FBI interviews: No evidence Zimmerm…

Posted by

Obama’s new campaign talking point is to compare Mitt Romney to Richard Nixon in terms of secrecy. The Board of Editors of The San Francisco Chronicle already has weighed in on the Nixonian quality of one of the presidential candidates: The Obama White House’s restrictions on media access to its fundraising events m…

He is what he’s always been. He’s not a nice guy who’s in over his head. He always has campaigned by finding enemies and demonizing people.  It was the essence of his campaign in 2008, but at least he could cover it with words like hope and change. Not this time around, though.  It’s…

I think today has been clarifying.  Whatever pretense of civility existed in the Obama campaign is gone. It’s okay, perfectly okay with the President for his campaign staff to call Mitt Romney a liar and potential criminal: “No,” Obama press secretary Ben LaBolt said in response to a question from POLITICO about whether the…
