The latest frontrunner talk among the Republican insiders and DC media types is none other than Mitt Romney.

But are Americans ready for a third run for President by the 2012 GOP loser to Barack Obama?

With the economy in virtual stagnation for six years, Russia annexing Ukranian territory and Islamic terrorists...

Like the New York Times, the Washington Post is a liberal newspaper. Unlike the New York Times, the Post has a mostly reasonable view of foreign policy. Finally, it appears that to the editors of the Washington Post the reality of President Obama has superseded the fantasy.

Dinesh D'Souza from Trailer America

Dinesh D’Souza allegedly violated campaign finance laws through a relatively small scheme to have friends donate $20,000 to Republican Senate candidate Wendy Long, who had little chance of defeating Kirsten Gillibrand in 2012. The alleged illegality was that D’Souza would reimburse them, thereby allowing him to exceed the individual campaing...

Washington Post Obama Regulatory Delay 2012

Prior to the 2012 election there were claims that the Obama administration was concealing its intentions by deliberately not moving proposed regulations forward so as to avoid campaign controversy.

Needless to say, the Obama campaign denied the charges then and now.

We reported on how delay of regulations damaged the rollout of Obamacare, ...

During the 2012 campaign, Obama mocked Mitt Romney’s statement that Russia was our greatest geopolitical threat.

In classic Obama style, he played a linguistic slight of hand, failing to distinguish “geopolitical” threat from other threats.

Obama’s canned sound bite zinger of the debate was “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their...

I have written several times about the implicit marginal rate which makes it economically irrational for a  poor or lower-middle class wage earner to make more money because of the loss of government benefits the higher income incurs.

Forecasts for snow on December Twenty-fourths and Twenty-fifths have higher probabilities than forecasts for Twenty-sixths or Twenty-sevenths.  This disparity is inverted on the Fourth of July, where probabilities for rain are lower than for the Fifth.  Surely nature doesn’t have a...

I bet you didn’t realize that conservative media was to blame for Mitt Romney’s loss by about 3% of the total vote, much closer in swing states.

That’s the story line at Buzzfeed Politics, How The Conservative Media Lost The Election.  It is a story with barely a dissenting voice.  Buzzfeed fails to make any...
