Jennifer Rubin is the Washington Post‘s “right” columnist, though many people would dispute that designation.

Rubin has made no secret of her Trump hatred, which came through today on MSNBC.

Rubin branded several of Trump’s cabinet and high level nominees “ignoramuses.”

“I wish I could say that Ben Carson is the only person who...

What an ironic statement from Jennifer Rubin (emphasis mine):

It is awfully tempting for pundits to use people and personal conflicts as stick figures in a polemic play reaffirming one’s preexisting impressions and biases. That’s certainly been the case in the Richard Grenell case….

Jennifer Rubin, the “right” blogger at The Washington Post, gained fame throughout the primaries by obsessively skewering each not-Romney who rose in the polls, even not-Romneys like Rick Santorum she had praised when convenient to use against another not-Romney.

Because of her platform at WaPo and her designation as WaPo’s “right” blogger, Rubin...

Oh, how times have changed.

They built up reasonable solid conservative Rick from the Northern Virginia suburbs when it was necessary to stop Newt, but now that he’s a threat to Mitt, he’s Ricky Bobby from Deer Hunter, PA.

Jennifer Rubin, the “right” blogger at The Washington Post and incessant Romney promoter, repeatedly has lashed out at Newt Gingrich with truly vile language unbecoming a writer at a major newspaper.

At 9:00 a.m. this morning, when Rubin thought Donald Trump would be endorsing Newt, here is what Rubin wrote in a post titled Egomaniacs R...

It’s really no surprise. As Mitt Romney has faltered from inevitability to modest favorite, a chorus of pro-Romney voices in the media and Republican Party is insisting that if Newt is the nominee, we not only lose the presidency we also lose the House and fail to take back the Senate.

Jennifer Rubin at The Washington Post has a post today in which she contrasts Mitt Romney’s non-pandering to the Jewish community with Newt Gingrich’s supposed pandering.

She highlights Jonathan Pollard, an American convicted of spying for Israel, and whether he should be granted clemency.  She quotes Romney as saying:

I have linked to posts by Caroline Glick since the early days of this blog.  Glick is one of the clearest voices on the dangers to Israel and the highly negative effects of Obama administration policy.

Glick has weighed in on Newt’s comments about the Palestinians (h/t LukeHandCool in the Tip Line).

Q.  Who was the last person to actually cut government?

As pointed out at C4P:

Rush is correct. Newt was indeed the last person to substantially cut Government and execute reform.

However; what folks seem to confuse that with is the idea that Newt actually “cut” budgets. That was never true. He cut Government,...

Mitt Romney appeared last night for an interview with Brett Baier (video below).  Too bad Brett didn’t ask Romney why Romney refused to appear before the full panel on Center Seat, like the other candidates have done.
