I’m, so in love with me

Via WaPo: All told, Obama held four fundraisers in New York on Thursday, flying here after unveiling a new proposal in Orlando, related to boosting tourism. While his four remaining Republican rivals held another televised debate in South Carolina, Obama was filling his war chest by talking with influential Jewish voters, yukking it…

ABC News’ textbook lesson in media hackery

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
Last night ABC News aired the much ballyhooed interview with Marianne Gingrich, Newt’s ex-wife. The ballyhoo was not warranted.  The “interview” was not so much an interview as an 8-minute ABC News attempt to portray Newt in an unfavorable light interspersed with very short clips of Marianne. A prime example was Brian Ross…

Electra-fying

Posted by  ▪  January 20, 2012
More thanks to reader Danelle in Electra, Texas: Ronnie Wilson opened up his print shop over 30 years ago. He mostly prints signage for the locally owned oil field operations and trucking companies. He’s also known to put out bumper stickers and signage reflecting current political sentiments, local, state or national! The sticker…

Charleston Debate – Newt took 1st question about ex-wife, wrapped question around John King’s neck, and tightened

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
John King started the night with a question about Newt’s ex-wife’s interview in which she alleged Newt sought an “open marriage.” Newt answered the question eventually with a denial, but used the oppoturnity to give King a smackdown which will be remembered for a long time. It was classic Newt, and will…

Charleston South Carolina Debate

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
Endgame assessment: Newt stole the buzz with the opening smackdown of John King over the issue of his ex-wife. After that Santorum was very aggressive, going after both Romney and Newt time and again; people either will like it or hate it. After a while he became grating. Romney has a…

Pre-debate prediction: Get Newt

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
My predictions: Rick Santorum is angry, and as I have said before, Rick Santorum does angry much better than even Newt does angry. He’s in a no win situation — if he scores enough points to damage Newt, he hands the SC election to Romney and the race could be over; if…

It’s a mad mad

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
Some things which got pushed aside for the breaking breaking news: When Mitt’s lost National Review on releasing tax returns now. Ann Coulter is sounding more and more like Marianne Gingrich. Hezbollah receiving more powerful, longer range missiles from Syria. Hyperbole in defense of Bain is a vice, don’t let them tell you otherwise. Bibi denies…

Say anything

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
I was wondering when someone would bring out the Mike Huckabee line from the 2008 campaign, when he was attacked by Romney much the way Romney attacked Newt in this election cycle. Romney always starts it.  He did it in Iowa in December 2007 against Huckabee and McCain,  and in Iowa 2011…

When Marianne cleaned out the house

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
There’s more to the story than you are hearing in the media.  Marianne Gingrich is no innocent, and she was the one who broke the marriage and cleaned out the house, via Robert Costa via AP report from 1999 (h/t Burke): Documents related to the divorce filed Friday in Cobb County Superior Court include a separation agreement…

Perry endorses Newt, as Newt surges in SC polls

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
Full speech by Rick Perry withdrawing from the race and endorsing Newt. If you want just the section endorsing Newt, it’s here, but I recommend listening to the whole speech, it’s worth it. The Perry endorsement is huge not because Perry had a large percentage (although even a few percent helps), but because…

Quote of Day

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
Instapundit: ISN’T THIS LEAKING DIVORCE DETAILS OF A RIVAL kind of an Obama trademark?  I’m just sayin’ . . . . That would presume Drudge got the tip from an opposing campaign, and forced ABC’s hand to release it prior to South Carolina in order to influence the election. And there is no pro…

It has come to this

So this is the big bombshell? video platform video management video solutions video player The story she tells is not consistent with this 1999 interview in which she said Newt told her he wanted a divorce and she was totally shocked. Brian Ross says that this is the only news in the interview, and…

So now Romney is not historic (or inevitable?)

Posted by  ▪  January 19, 2012
There’s a whole lot of punditry who have been singing the inevitability of Mitt Romney because for the first time in history a single candidate won both Iowa and New Hampshire in an open race.  The narrative was stupid — because on election night Romney was ahead by only 8 votes…
