Fox News did it, not me

Posted by  ▪  December 14, 2011
Listening to Fox News last night, there seems to be a split of preference in the GOP primary.  O’Reilly pretty clearly is on Romney’s side, Hannity is more neutral leaning towards Newt, Greta I can’t tell. But I think we know where the person who prepares images for the video feed stands. Via…

Doomsday Poll Results

Posted by  ▪  December 14, 2011
The Doomsday Poll results are in. Ron Paul met the most opposition, with by far the highest percentage of votes for staying home or voting for Obama in the general election.  Second, with less than half as much opposition, was Mitt Romney. There was some funny business as to Rick Santorum.  He had a very…

Bringing up Romney’s Bain problem is not “socialist”

Posted by  ▪  December 14, 2011
Charles Krauthammer said Newt Gingrich was speaking like a “socialist” because Newt, responding to Mitt Romney’s demand that Newt give back the consulting money he earned from Freddie Mac, said that he’d consider it if Romney gave back the money he earned from bankrupting companies and laying off workers. George Will calls…

Ann Coulter can’t explain her flip flop on Romney

Posted by  ▪  December 14, 2011
Ann Coulter was on Hannity last night, and it was embarrassing.  (Video embed at bottom of post) Coulter stumbled trying to explain why she declared Romney a sure loser against Obama at CPAC in February of this year. First she said Obamacare changed her mind about Romney, but Obamacare passed in March 2010. …

Rocky Mountain sigh

Thanks to frequent photographer Matt, who writes: I’ve been waiting to send this one in. Every imaginable bumper sticker via the liberal meme on a Prius with a CU license plate. What struck me was the Marines sticker. Being the time of giving with Christmas and Hanukkah, I’m reminded of how much peace…

Doomsday Poll – Who would cause you to stay home or vote for Obama?

Posted by  ▪  December 13, 2011
Following up on my post this morning regarding whether conservatives and libertarians would stay home or support Obama if Newt were the Republican nominee, I wonder which if any of the other candidates generates such feelings. So, here is the Doomsday Poll, in two parts.  First, which of the candidates, if nominated, definitely/likely…

Real world

Posted by  ▪  December 13, 2011
Today’s doings: If this PPP poll is accurate (and you know I have a concern about PPP), then the negative ads being run against Newt are having a big effect in moving Newt lower and Ron Paul higher.  I’d like to see some more before jumping to conclusions, since two polls released…

It’s a big sometimes bad world out there

Posted by  ▪  December 13, 2011
And we try to deal with as much of it as we can here at Legal Insurrection. In fact, in the coming week there will be a couple of law students to help me — between semesters — cover the Iowa caucuses, New Hampshire, and other campaingn-related stuff. But first, want to…

Taking their anti-Newt ball and going home for the general election

Posted by  ▪  December 13, 2011
There has been plenty of griping and talk by Tea Partiers that if Romney is the nominee, they’re staying home in November. I don’t believe it for a second.  When push comes to shove, they will not choose four more years of Obama. But I do believe that many conservatives and libertarians who…

Uh oh, call Glenn Beck quick

Posted by  ▪  December 13, 2011
Now he has to vote for Ron Paul as a third-party candidate even if Romney is the nominee, and has to call Romney supporters racist too. This was 2002, “My views are progressive.”  (h/t @Allahpundit)
 

So rhetorical bombs about China are good, but about the Palestinians bad?

Posted by  ▪  December 13, 2011
As part of his campaign to paint Newt Gingrich as crazy, Mitt Romney has focused on Newt’s statement that the Palestinians were an “invented” people.  Romney argued at the Drake University debate Saturday night that Newt had used “incendiary words” which would “create extraordinary tumult” and said “I’m not a bomb thrower, rhetorically or literally.” Romney and…

The Iranians will be hearing from our lawyers

Carl in Jerusalem screams “OMG – He Can’t Be Serious,” regarding this video: Carl, you’re a lawyer. In order to commence suit in court for return of the drone, demand must be made and the persons in possession of the drone must be given a reasonable opportunity to return the drone to its rightful owner.  Absent…

Caroline Glick: Newt’s comments “a cause for hope”

Posted by  ▪  December 12, 2011
I have linked to posts by Caroline Glick since the early days of this blog.  Glick is one of the clearest voices on the dangers to Israel and the highly negative effects of Obama administration policy. Glick has weighed in on Newt’s comments about the Palestinians (h/t LukeHandCool in the Tip Line). Glick…

Romney now all negative all the time, just like in 2008

Posted by  ▪  December 12, 2011
Mitt Romney’s campaign has been moving negative on Newt for well over a week with a strategy to portray Newt as crazy, but since Romney’s debate debacle Saturday night and more polling showing Newt with a crushing lead almost everywhere, the Romney campaign now is completely negative. And as I predicted, Romney…
