When Romney, NYT and Drudge attack

Posted by  ▪  January 24, 2012
Newt was very subdued on stage last night. I noted at the time that it probably was a strategy of not taking Romney’s bait, but he needs to be more aggressive in defending when Romney attacks. The video below is being hyped by both the NY Times and Drudge as Newt threatening to…

Money well spent

Posted by  ▪  January 24, 2012
Alan Grayson still appears here every now and then. Elizabeth Warren hasn’t been seen for a long time, I guess she’s on work detail helping build the roads for the factory owners to use. But I’ve noticed a lot of these lately: I can handle that.  So long as she stays away.
 

What if everything we have been told about Mitt Romney’s electability is wrong, Part 4

Posted by  ▪  January 24, 2012
This is latest in a series debunking the primary justification for Mitt Romney’s nomination, electability versus Barack Obama.  (See Parts One, Two and Three) Conn Carroll, at The Washington Examiner, used favorability ratings for a headline column, America Hates Newt, which generated a lot of attention and fed into a narrative pushed by…

Choke on it

Posted by  ▪  January 24, 2012
Dear Hillary supporters: You have had to swallow a lot of pride, but this should make you choke: “Change We Can Believe In”, a key Obama campaign slogan, was meant   as a slur against Mrs Clinton’s personality, intended to highlight how she “couldn’t be trusted or believed in when it comes to change”, according…

Fred Thompson endorses Newt

Posted by  ▪  January 24, 2012
This to be helpful to Newt not so much because it will change a particular vote, but because it adds to a helpful narrative for Newt and pushes back against the “erratic” meme being pushed by Romney and Santorum. Video h/t ElectAd:
 

I’m proud of those few

From a reader: As a loyal blog reader, I find great amusement in your regular bumper sticker posts. What I have for you is not a bumper sticker, but a humorous license plate of a hero. I am a Marine stationed aboard Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Recently, while out to dinner, my wife…

Republican Debate – Tampa, FL

Posted by  ▪  January 23, 2012
No Tweets of the Night (or cigarettes).  It just wasn’t that good for me. Endgame assessment:  Very boring, strange debate.  Romney scored points at the start by going after Newt; Newt brought up history of Romney attacking others from 2008.  Newt did not take the bait and get angry.  Seems like it…

Coulter world

Posted by  ▪  January 23, 2012
It’s no secret that Ann Coulter is no fan of Newt Gingrich. The staunch Romney supporter isn’t shy about conveying her dissatisfaction with Gingrich in general, and particularly with his straight forward, and occasionally harsh manner of speaking. Back in December, while the Romney Super PACs were in the midst of engag…

Yessir, there is tonight: UCLA Political Scientist says Newt Gingrich is Biggest Threat to Obama (video here) It’s open deli season.  “Their actions in the last five hours is a campaign that is panicking.” Who needs the rednecks: “In South Carolina exit polls, Romney wins only the “moderate or liberal”, those with incomes in excess…

Mitt Romney took anti-Newt Reagan line from Ann Coulter

Posted by  ▪  January 23, 2012
Mitt Romney used a line at the last debate to minimize Newt’s claim to have worked with Ronald Reagan (transcipt, emphasis mine): MR. ROMNEY: … I mean, Mr. Speaker, it was — it was — you talk about all the things you did with Ronald Reagan and — and — and the Reagan…

Okay. That’s my reaction.
 

People who destroy hard drives shouldn’t demand records from others

Posted by  ▪  January 23, 2012
Why is he doing this? Is his campaign really that incompetent? Having successfully shut down scrutiny in the primaries (but not the general election) of his Bain record with unfounded cries of “Newt’s attacking capitalism and free markets,” Romney is back to what started it all, the demand that Newt give back t…

Mitt Romney sides with Nancy Pelosi

Posted by  ▪  January 23, 2012
Mitt Romney’s campaign is in trouble.  The trouble is not just the South Carolina vote count.  Romney’s internal polling almost certainly also showed that he was behind in Florida, as public polling released today reflects. More worrisome for Romney is a growing chorus of doubters within the Republican establishment and conservative media who…
