Sawyer and Stephanopoulos to debate Republican candidates Saturday night

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
Of course I’ll be covering it, probably one of my “updates at the breaks” type of coverage, not a Live Event.  It starts at 9 p.m. Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos “moderated” the Drake Debate in December.   My prior posts: Drake Debate – Video highlights, Drake Debate Post-Op & Tweets of Night and Duel…

They know who the real threat is

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
Via The Hill: Restore Our Future, a super PAC backing Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, will run full-page ads attacking Newt Gingrich in the Manchester Union Leader and The State in Columbia, South Carolina, the most prominent newspapers in the next two states to vote…. The decision to attack Gingrich is a curious one…

The election is not just about jobs, it’s about the vision thing

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
There is a new jobs report out, with the usual caveats that the work force is shrinking, but the nominal unemployment rate is down to 8.5%.  That’s the number which counts politically. The rate would be 10.9% if the same number of people were in the workforce as when Obama took office The…

“less intelligent, but angrier liberals”

Posted by  ▪  January 6, 2012
I’m still trying to wrap my mind around that phrase used in the email from reader NCMont to explain his move from D.C. to Austin.  I guess it’s like when I make the trip from Rhode Island to Ithaca when school is in session.  Or is it the other way around? Basically, NCMont and I are …. Professor,…

WI Judge: Bugs Bunny can’t sign petitions to recall Scott Walker

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
You would think that Wisconsin state officials charged with ensuring the intergrity of elections, including the recall against Gov. Scott Walker, would want to check for duplicate, fictitious and fraudulent signatures on recall petitions. But no.  As I reported in November, the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board decided that it would not check signatures. …

Grow some

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
Things that deserve separate posts, but won’t get it, for now: He’s still trying to out liberal a real liberal, and it will not work:  Scott Brown Says He Supports Obama’s Illegal “Recess” Appointment of Richard Cordray… and  Scott Brown Accuses Gingrich Of ‘Pandering To The Right-Wing Extreme’.  He has forgotten who elected him. Teenager…

Now Eugene Robinson mocks Santorum’s mourning

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
I posted the other day about Alan Colmes mocking — and then apologizing for mocking — the manner in which Rick Santorum and his family mourned their child who died shortly after birth. Now Eugene Robinson of The Washington Post and MSNBC has done the same (via Commentary, h/t @CharlieSykes): First it was Alan…

Coulter: Santorum “more of a Catholic than a conservative”

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
Having called the Tea Party birthers and Newt Ahmadinejad, Ann Coulter has identified another way of demonizing and belittling someone who is not Mitt Romney: As a two-time senator from a light-blue state, Rick Santorum is not as obviously unelectable as the rest. But don’t leap too fast, Republicans. Remember how Rick Perry broke…

Why do we even have to ask for permission to shoot?

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
Two men break into a home in Oklahoma. A widowed young mother and her infant are alone in the house. The mother calls 911 to ask if it is okay to shoot the intruders: “I’ve got two guns in my hand – is it okay to shoot him if he comes in…

Going after Romney is patriotic, too

Posted by  ▪  January 5, 2012
Remember when one Republican candidate viciously attacking the leading Republican candidate was patriotic? Like in Iowa, when everyone from Charles Krauthammer on down blamed Newt’s past for the several millions dollars in negative attack ads run by a pro-Romney SuperPAC?  When National Review devoted almost an entire issue to attacking Newt and portraying him…

Do we really need 10 more months of this?

No one could have seen this coming. Romney Tax Returns Become a Problem Mitt Romney, a multimillionaire who is by far the wealthiest of the Republican presidential candidates, said he has no plans to release his income tax returns if he wins his party’s nomination, setting himself apart from past nominees in both…

Obama desperately seeks a crisis to take advantage of

Posted by  ▪  January 4, 2012
Obama’s recess appointment of Richard Cordray to the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau correctly is portrayed as a naked power grab. First, the Senate is not in recess.  Harry Reid and other Democrats in the past treated the current Senate pro forma business status as not being in recess. Second, the Dodd-Frank legislation which…
