SOTU Group Commiseration

Speech starts at 9 p.m. Lock your arms around each other in a big circle and repeat while swaying back and forth: This is not happening, this is not happening, …. Please sign in to CoverItLive if you want your comments to appear automatically, otherwise they will sit until I get around to…

Rationalizany

Posted by  ▪  January 24, 2012
Coming to gripes: A frank discussion of Mitt’s Bain problem, in other words, something which is almost impossible now in conservative circles without being called “anti-capitalist” (h/t OCBill). Where are the hard drives?  Newt’s campaign should be pushing this harder. National Review editors still don’t like Newt. Washington Post columnists still don’t like Newt. Scott Walker has…

The Great Panic of 2012

Posted by  ▪  January 24, 2012
Did you hear what Andrea Mitchell said last night after the debate?  I did, and so did David Limbaugh. If true, abject panic is just below the surface: (video added, via Greg Hengler) We may be at Kübler-Ross Stage 4 over the prospect of a Romney nomination, but they are about to move from anger…

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…
