Posted by  ▪  January 17, 2012
Sarah Palin on Hannity just stated that if she were in South Carolina she would vote for Newt to keep the election from being declared over if Romney wins. She emphasized that we need answers to questions, and can’t risk October surprises. I’ll get you the full quote and video when available. Update: …

Posted by  ▪  January 17, 2012
Andrew Kaczynski of BuzzFeed has located John McCain’s 200-page opposition reasearch book on Mitt Romney.  It’s embedded below. I turned to the section on Bain, and at page 136 found this sentence: Romney Served As CEO Of Bain Capital Through August 2001, Even Though He No Longer Ran Daily Operations. “Although he gave…

Romney relaunches Operation Zany

Posted by  ▪  January 17, 2012
The best evidence that Newt is rising in South Carolina is that the Romney campaign is rolling out a new effort to paint Newt as “unreliable.” It’s the campaign theme that worked well for Romney in Iowa, when Romney rolled out his strategy of crazy. Operation Zany has been quiet lately, but no…

Who do you want taking on Obama, the Honey Badger or the kitten?

Posted by  ▪  January 17, 2012
Last night’s debate reminded people of why Newt surged in the fall before Romney’s SuperPAC and almost the entire conservative media went after him in December. This was one of the highlights (which led to Juan williams asking the ill-fated follow-up on the “food stamp president” line): Here were some reactions from more neutral…

Tax return slippery slope

Posted by  ▪  January 17, 2012
I saw this coming from a mile away. Mitt Romney’s original position that he would not release his income tax returns, a position he held to for several weeks, now is slipping. At the debate last night Romney gave a convoluted answer that he “probably” would release the tax returns in April –…

Posted by  ▪  January 17, 2012
So I’m not sure where the hostility to Golfer 1 is coming from. Thanks to reader Rich who writes: This is not your standard bumper sticker contribution, but it is pretty amusing. I was in the middle of a round of golf in Spring Hill Florida when I saw this notice. Thought you might…

Republican South Carolina Debate

Posted by  ▪  January 16, 2012
Endgame Analysis:  I don’t think Romney was mortally wounded, but he did stammer through some key issues such as the release of his tax returns.  Clearly Newt had almost all of and the biggest moments.  Probably Rick Perry’s best debate, Santorum was uneven.  Probably Ron Paul’s worst debate. If Newt’s goal was…

“from the very beginning, Obama was playing a long game”

Posted by  ▪  January 16, 2012
The inflammatory Newsweek cover, and the heaping of praise on Obama by Andrew Sullivan, distract from the most important point of Sullivan’s article at The Daily Beast, quoted in the title above. Obama has accomplished a lot for the Left in America.  He wants to accomplish a lot more.  Given time, he will. Failing to recognize…

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a thread on LI get so heated and nasty”

Posted by  ▪  January 16, 2012
That was the reaction of more than one reader in response to the comments on the post Saturday Night Card Game (How nasty will the general election race card get? This nasty).  I agree. I’m not sure at what point lines get crossed, but I certainly don’t want to see the comment section here…
